The Riot Games Twitch channel has become the first channel to surpass one billion views and the company thanked the fans for helping them reach the accomplishment.

Currently, Riot Games' Twitch channel has close to three million followers.

The momentous achievement was reached during the match between FlyQuest and OpTic Gaming which saw FlyQuest grabbing the first win of the day's matches.

Despite some of the debate around the game's meta and the rise in popularity of games like PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS and Fortnite,  League of Legends continues to hold a solid place in the Twitch streaming world. Much of that success can be attributed to the Riot Games Twitch channel, which features games from the NA LCS, EU LCS and the larger international events hosted by Riot Games like Worlds.
