Which is a testament to the popularity of, well, classic WoW. Back when the game first debuted in 2004 - the idea of Twitch, watching a stranger play a game as part of a community, was a thing of the distant future. To put on the hat of an old-man for second, "Twitch? Why, back in my day if we wanted to watch a neighbour play World of Warcraft we had to go over to their house and peek through a window. And to emote we used these things called our faces! Especially when they looked outside."

Ahem. Anyway, back to the headline. World of Warcraft: Classic has set a new record for highest launch-day concurrent viewership; with 1,165,793 million people tuning into Classic streams on August 27 at 8:05am AEST.

Over the 24-hour launch day period 6.1 million unique viewers tuned in.

To switch hats, this time that of a cynical millennial. "Millions of people watching World of Warcraft: Classic on Twitch? Move over Fortnite, watching a queue number slowly go up, down, up, and down for hours is in!"

And some people think that stand-up comedy is hard to do. For more on World of Warcraft: Classic be sure to check out our recent interview with the team at Blizzard.
