League of Legends Soars

Over 70 million players are now registered to play League of Legends, announces Riot Games, saying this is more than double the number of users the game boasted as of November 2011, adding that the number of monthly active users has nearly tripled in that time. Here are the impressive numbers: "Riot Games have now amassed 70 million registered summoner names more than double compared to November 2011. The volume of monthly active players is almost triple the amount of 2011 coming in at 32 million and 3 million daily peak concurrency. The total amount of hours played a month reaches 1 billion." Since a player population that would qualify as the 19th largest country in the world is hard to put into perspective (though that bit about the countries helps), they have created an infographic to help us comprehend the implications of this.

And where is DOTA2? Too little too late Valve. Screw your shity invite only beta, and letting me install Dota2 only to realise that its 'spectator' only...

Fucking hell, I dont really care about these types of games and have only played LoL once, but after that shit that Valve pulled Im probably not going to play it out of pure spite.

Your loss, it's a fantastic game. Too bad you don't understand what closed beta means. And heck, anyone who really wanted in to the beta got in easily. They give away beta keys like there's no tomorrow.

The game is fantastic...but you're right, the community hurts overall gameplay. Between the Tribunal and Honor syste, Riot has gone a long way toward improving player interactions. The key to enjoyment is to friend people that you enjoy playing with, or join a community like http://www.lowelo.com

Funny thing about their account numbers is that everyone I know that plays has at LEAST one smurf account. So the 32 million active player numbers is probably somewhere in the 13 million range. Still damn impressive.

This game is ok, until you realize you have to rely on people that are bigger idiots than ones you would find in a World of Warcraft pick up group. At that point all the fun is sucked out of it
