YouTube and Twitch Drops in WoW and Overwatch – Blizzard is only lying to itself

Dear former WoW EU Community Managers: I miss you!

Despite the many technical problems, the release of Overwatch 2 can definitely be described as successful. At least that’s what the player numbers published by Blizzard suggest. Although the rush has decreased somewhat in the meantime, the servers are still well filled.

In many places, reference is also made to the immense viewership of Overwatch when it comes to classifying the success of the team shooter. In our eyes, this is only half the truth. Because Blizzard is lying to itself a bit in the bag. At least in part, these numbers are heavily embellished through the use of Twitch and YouTube drops.
