Fortnite’s Season 4-ending live event was a total blast for all gamers who watched and played the rest of the Marvel-themed season.
The Galactus event, which sets a record of over 15.3 million players, was probably the biggest Epic Games event ever had.
Of course, though the game did not really end well– thanks to Fortnite going down. There were still a few surprises that shocked most players. One of that includes David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas, who just broke the Twitch history.
What did TheGrefg do on Fortnite?
Those who did not manage to enter the season-ender event mostly relied on watching from Twitch. And with a popular game like Fortnite, it is expected for things to be, as wild as it should be.
That is what exactly happened with popular Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg.’
On Wednesday, Dec. 2, the 23-year-old Fortnite player, has broken Twitch’s world record as the most-watched video game streaming on the platform.
David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the same Galactus event. According to a report, over 600,000 had watched his streaming on Twitch.
Surprisingly, it was also the same time before the platform crashed.
The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.
Since there was a technical malfunction during the stream, Twitch had not yet officially called TheGrefg as the most-watched streamer of all time.
But if we based on the captured screenshots during the live stream, he undoubtedly gained 660,000 people that watched his stream simultaneously.
Once the official Season 5 update arrives, Twitch is expected to announce the new world-breaking achievement of TheGrefg.
Meanwhile, for now, his fans have already congratulated him on social media.
“Well, this is what Twitch marks me on today’s live. I don’t know if it has actually been 660,000, more, less, they will confirm me tomorrow … In any case, it becomes the most-watched live of my life and the world record of a streamer on Twitch. I have no words,” roughly translated in one of his tweets on Twitter.

Though not yet official, Esports Charts already gave the third spot to TheGrefg, below the top streaming videos from PlayStation and Riot Games.
TheGrefg versus Ninja
The huge fanbase that watched TheGrefg Galactus event stream was a surprising turn-out for the streamer.
Twitch’s previous highest record was held by Ninja in 2018. Just like TheGrefg, Ninja played Fortnite on his most-watched video streaming. It reached over 635,000 viewers, which was now considered the second popular streaming video.
It was also the time when he teamed up with popular American rapper, Drake.
Aside from Ninja, TheGrefg’s stats had also beaten Dr Disrespect’s popular video stream. This streamer was originally banned from Twitch– with no apparent reason. With his return in February 2018, his video gained at least 338,000 viewers during his stream.
