You can’t get viewers if you are thinking to stream the most popular games on Twitch
As you can see these games Like Fornite , Valorant , Call of duty are on top of Twitch , with Thousands of viewers online
Streaming these games is not a good idea because already millions of streamers are producing same content and its difficult to stand out
So , in the beginning try to stream games with less number of streamers even though they have less viewers
These games can be seen in the end but you can stand out if you stream these games .
For example , you can stream “snow runner ” not a very popular game on twitch and with only 20-24 streamer streaming this game
You can really standout in this less number less streamers and gain more visibility and views
So the viewer can find your stream and participate
Rather than streaming Fortnite and showing up in the end of the game category where no one can find you in millions of streamers .
