17. Re: League of Legends Soars Oct 12, 2012, 17:52 cocoreno
 
Frankly, what shocked me was some additional info I read on Gamasutra:

And thanks to microtransactions for purchasing playable characters and items, League of Legends is also likely generating a lot of revenue from those players -- Ngmoco GM and free-to-play expert Ben Cousins estimates that the core-targeted game grosses $5-10 million every day.

So, using the lower estimate, $5M * 365 days = $1.825 Billion per year.

Impressive, if I actually believed it. Still, LoL is clearly the WoW of MOBA. Potentially bigger, if these numbers are to be believed.
