The ZEvent 2022 again set a new record. The edition was once again a huge success. What hope for a potential ZEvent 2023 despite everything?
Some announced it as the edition of the flop, it will not be. This year again, the players and the French people have mobilized to defend a cause that is more important than ever: ecology. Back to the ZEvent 2022.
Zevent 2022 breaks its record
Historic performance for the ZEvent 2022. The sixth, and last edition in this format, of the charity marathon on Twitch raised 10,182,126 euros in donations during this weekend. nearly 60 streamers and streamers mobilized their communities to act for the ecological cause during nearly 50 hours of live broadcast. All donations will be donated to the 5 associations chosen by the fans, namely Sea Shepherd, the LPO WWF, Sea Cleaners and Time for the Planet.
Despite critics, the ZEvent 2022 broke the record set in 2021 of 10,064,480 euros. The event was therefore not a “flop” as the fans of certain communities of streamers were not invited this year. A few weeks ago, a controversy broke out around the choice of the initial association but also the absence of certain influencers (Gotaga, Michou, Inoxtag, Amine…). The date chosen could also suggest a drop in mobilization, but players and spectators were once again there for this edition, considered by many to be “healthier” and “less toxic” on social networks.
A ZEvent 2023 despite everything?
Adrien Nougaret, known as ZeratoR, had announced that this sixth edition would be the last, in this format at least. ” We plan to change the formula of the ZEvent in 2023, so to make a last big ZEvent, a last big clownery, we had to take an important theme, and what better than the environment, which concerns us all? ” had then announced the creator and organizer of the event.
Yet hope seems possible for a possible ZEvent 2023. Faced with the success of this edition, ZeratoR might not close the door to a new edition. In the wake of the closing of donations this Monday, September 12 at 2 a.m., the streamer split with a simple tweet with the hashtag #ZEVENT2023. The craze seems to be there since the post has already accumulated nearly 34,000 likes at the time of writing these lines.
