954 AK-47 headshots, 1,450 Molotovs and more: the ESL One Cologne 2015 infographic

With the ESL ESEA Pro League Dubai Invitational almost upon us, it’s time we took a look back at the amazing event that was ESL One Cologne 2015. The major enjoyed a whopping 1.3 million viewers at its peak, shattering previous ESL One records by more than 30% as well as setting new records for both ESL and Counter-Strike as a whole.

We shattered even more records thanks to 27 million unique viewers tuning in to the stream as well as racking up almost 34 million hours of watched content on Twitch. ESL One Cologne 2015 has also gone down in history as not only the biggest but also the most-watched Counter-Strike event of all time.

These incredible numbers, all featured as part of our infographic below, wouldn’t have been possible without the fantastic performances given by the attending teams as well as all the fans who watched the event in person at the LANXESS Arena or online. Thank you to everyone who was part of ESL One Cologne 2015!
