Ha! "1,376 percent" is something a kid might say when you ask him how much he loves chicken fingers dipped in honey mustard. It's the percent of dislike I have for when people describe themselves as irreverent. It's the percent of me that loves tiramisu, corgis, and walking through the woods.
1,376 is also the percentage increase in viewership on MLG.tv for this first quarter of 2014. Major League Gaming says that viewership is up 60 percent over December, and viewers are sticking around for almost 160 minutes each visit. Two new mobile MLG.tv apps, for iOS (www.mlg.tv/iosapp) and Android (www.mlg.tv/androidapp), will likely move that number a bit higher.
Now tell me eSports isn't massive.
Alongside these stats, MLG has announced that gamer and social personality Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag will stream exclusively on their platform.
