Here Are The Top 5 Twitch Streamers Who Gained Huge Popularity In 2021. Twitch is in danger of being overtaken by Facebook Gaming and YouTube Gaming — the two other platforms for video-game streaming. Twitch has lost several of the most prominent content creators in the past year because they moved their live streams to other platforms. Among them are Rachel “Valkyrie” Hofstetter and Ludwig Ahgren.
Despite claiming that he sees Twitch as his home, Ludwig decided to leave the platform only recently. The following article provides an overview of the popular Twitch streamers of 2021.
Top 5 Twitch streamers who made a splash in 2021
5) Ludwig Ahgren
On November 30, Ludwig Ahgren announced he would be moving from Twitch to YouTube Gaming. According to him, he was not satisfied with the purple platform. As a result, he switched to YouTube Gaming.
However, Ludwig burst in 2021. The Twitch streamer has become one of the most recognized faces in recent months. In the past 12 months, the streamer has added nearly 1.9 million Twitch followers, and now has a following of 3.09 million. Ludwig might not be streaming on Twitch for a while, but YouTube Gaming recently signed him to a lucrative deal because of his burgeoning popularity there.
Recently, David “TheGrefg” Mart*nez has received a lot of attention. The streamer is currently ranked 35th in terms of followers and rose as high as 7th within the past few months. TheGrefg’s spectacular popularity rise began around the beginning of 2020.
According to Twitch data, the streamer had about 1.2 million followers in January 2020. The number has since grown to 8.5 million. As a result of TheGrefg’s rise in popularity, he has been nominated for ‘content creator of the year’ at Game Awards 2021.
Another Twitch creator who has been gaining popularity lately is Ibai Llanos. In addition, Ibai was nominated for the content creator of the year award, and he currently has around 8.5 million followers along with about 43k subscribers.
His subscriber count peaked at 73,561 during a stream in September 2021. With more than 4 million followers in the last 12 months, Ibai started the year with about 4.4 million followers. Among us and Minecraft are other games he plays besides League of Legends.
Tommyinnit Simons was not among the nominees at The Game Awards 2021. It’s arguable, though, that he deserved inclusion after registering a 4 million follower growth on Twitch in the last year.
Up until the beginning of this year, the Minecraft streamer was a relatively unknown phenomenon. He has maintained a remarkable growth rate due to his Minecraft content, which accounts for 88.5% of his total streams.
1) Adin Ross
It would be impossible to list all of these people without including Adin Ross, who has seen huge growth on Twitch in recent months. In addition to Tommyinnit, Adin Ross was relatively unknown until the beginning of 2021 and had around 500k followers.
The current Twitch following of Ross is approximately 5.16 million. It was his collaborations with Corinna Kopf that first made him a household name. Adin Ross has, however, become one of Twitch’s most popular streamers in recent months and garnered a significant following. Since his debut on Twitch, Ross has mostly streamed NBA 2K games.
