>How popular is League of Legends?

>The answer is: very popular. PC Gamer has an article up today that explains just how large the free-to-play game has become:

  • Every day, over 1.4 million players log on to play League of Legends
  • There are over 15 million registered accounts
  • Between NA and EU servers, peak concurrency has reached 500,000 players
  • Players spend an aggregate total of 3.7 million hours in-game every day
  • The official League of Legends site gets 6 million hits a day
  • League of Legends YouTube videos have nearly 100 million views
  • Over 1,690,000 viewers tuned into the online broadcast of the League of Legends Season One Championship, with concurrent viewership peaking at over 210,000
I haven’t tried League of Legends myself, but I must say, these stats are pretty incredible for a game that burst onto the scene less than two years ago.

    >If you didn't know, it is a updated version of DotA, a mod for Warcraft 3. They created it to so as to be released from the limits of the WC3 engine. These types of games are popping up all over the place. DotA 2 (To be made by valve with the help of the original DotA creators), looks like it is going to take top control of the "Genre". I am looking forward to it :)

    Ok so enough with the info, opinion time :D
    I don't enjoy LoL that much. I simply don't like how the game feels. A also much bigger reason is that it simply isn't the best. HoN is my personal game of choice. I think LoL took the lead (A HUGE lead at that) over HoN simply because it is free, and it takes no time to get playing. Just the fact that HoN costs money, puts people off getting it. Btw, if you are thinking of playing either of these games, HoN is only $10 right now, instead of $30 :)

    The above was more of a blog post than a comment, but w/e :D

    >meh, i like the game but can't play it on my own :P

    Due to mostly bad team mates and it's always more fun when playing with others.



Brandon started his PC gaming days playing Doom II (IDDQD/IDKFA for life) and has been hooked on online gaming since the original Starsiege: Tribes. The way to his heart is through proper grammar, corn dogs, and cookie cake.
