At its highest point, 138,000 people were watching the MLG Raleigh live streams . According to info MLG sent over, viewers tuned in from 173 countries and three million hours were "consumed" over the course of the competition.

Raleigh is the fourth competition in a six-part city-hopping tour and MLG will be live-streaming their events in Orlando and Providence, too.
