After a little break over the summer we’re back with another Arabic streaming summary. This report is for the week of 8th September.

PUBG Mobile hasn’t shifted on Youtube

Although we took a short break PUBG Mobile hasn’t. It is still the game being streamed by the majority of the top 10 streamers on Youtube.
Most of the familiar names are still in the top 10 with a few changes. Mohamed Adel is a new name and represents Egypt. For the UAE we have Edrees Sharifi entering into the top 10.

Not surprisingly aeod 1407 has kept the top spot and Haman391 is still going with the short streaming sessions.
The biggest change from previous weeks of reporting is in the numbers. Aeod1407 streamed for fewer hours last week. This has meant a drop in Total Hours Watched and a slight drop in ACV. For the rest of the top 10 streamers the story is similar. Lower THW and ACV coinciding with fewer hours being streamed.

New Call of Duty demo impacts Twitch

With the release of the Call of Duty demo we saw 2 of the top 10 streamers make the switch. Grand Theft Auto also continued to be present with 3 of the top 10 streamers playing. Fortnite saw a drop to 2 of the top 10 playing.

RakanooLive continued as the most watched for THW but shongxbong wasn’t far behind. Playing the Call of Duty demo shongxbong managed an ACV of 4.6K and streamed for fewer hours than RakanooLive. For the rest of the top 10 the figures are positive despite the drop in THW for RakanooLive.
