ImageLoL breaks the record for the number of simultaneous viewers of an eSports stream.

When the EU Dreamhack Qualifiers were taking place, so were the North American equivalent and the stream of which had some very impressive viewing figures.

The tournament broke the record for people viewing an eSport at the same time with a massive 69,000 concurrent viewers, surpassing any previous North American eSport event.

The tournament managed to pull in 300,000 unique viewers over the course of the weekend with around 1,000,000 streams views between them.

It will be interesting to see if League of Legends and Riot Games can expand on this number come Dreamhack later this month.
