      Hard as this might be to believe based on what we continue to see on Intagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn, not everyone it spending their time these days perfecting their breadmaking skills. 

      When not rolling baguettes or futilely working on bringing a sourdough starter to life, the world has discovered that watching eSports online is a great way to kill a half-dozen COVID-19 lockdown hours each day. 

      Data gathered by GoldenCasinoNews suggests that the three biggest online eSports games—League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare—did doing booming business in March, with gaming enthusiasts spending 286 million hours watching play on various streaming platforms. 

      As one of the most played online games in the world, it's no suprise that League Legends was the big winner with viewers spending 123 million hours watching players do battle on Twitch. That number represents a 2-million-hours bump from February. 

      Call of Duty: Modern Warefare numbers jumped by 87 million hours from February for a total of 96 million hours watched. 

      Counter-Strike: Global Offensive meanwhile climbed to almost 67 million hours watched, a spike of 17 million hours.
