Bugha And Mongraal Beat Scump And S1mple To Most Talked About Esports Pro
Yet another colossal year unfolded for gaming as the global pandemic pushed people towards the online space for an escape and a rife old debate on social media. With many household titles dropping huge updates and some newer games soaring in popularity, Twitter Gaming has now revealed which players, teams, and games fans liked to have a good old chinwag, whinge, or debate about on their platform.
Mongraal and Bugha Top Twitter Charts For Esports Athletes
According to Twitter Gaming's Global Head of Gaming Content Partnerships, Rishi Chadha, FaZe Clan's Kyle "Mongraal" Jackson came out as the most tweeted about esports athlete throughout 2021, closely followed by the 2018 Fortnite World Cup champion Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf.
Fortnite's Benjy "Benjyfishy" David Fish also completed the hat-trick for the 'forgotten' esport, whilst usual suspects on the list in Seth "Scump" Abner and Martin "Rekkles" Larson came in to complete the top five.
Genshin Impact Dominates Twitter Conversations Throughout 2021
Anime title Genshin Impact was the number one game in terms of Twitter discussions throughout the year too, following its release in 2020 and continuing popularity throughout the globe. Despite the positivity, some of Genshin's darker moments may also have pushed these figures.
Often trending with the incorrect spelling was Apex Legends (or hashtag ApexLedgends), although the illiteracy still saw the title take second place as the most discussed game on Twitter, topping off a resoundingly successful year for the battle royale.
Even though Mongraal, Bugha, and Benjyfishy flew the flag for Fortnite, the Epic Games masterclass only came in at tenth, although it only highlighted what a great year it has been for the non-multiplayer genres and games such as Final Fantasy.
