27 Million People Now Playing LoL


There are masses of people out there getting giddy over this game. Yes, League Of Legends, the online battle arena game, has garnered a lot of attention and in 2012 it numbered 12 million daily players.

It took one year for that number to rise to an impressive 27 million, writes WSJ. The statistic was apparently released by the game's developer, Riot.

A friend of mine tried to persuade me to dive into LoL, because he's been playing for months. He was even among the top players. This friend is a passionate gamer and he swears that LoL is one of the best games he's ever played.

Might give it a try. Clearly everyone else has.

This article reported by PCgamer had some "lol" FB comments to say the least.

it's no different than any other multiplayer game.
due to zero IQ requirements, the community is a virtual zoo of under-developed birth experiments.

the game is not half bad...hell, at the easy price of FREE, i dare say it's good. the character freedom of DOTA2 has it beat however and in terms of graphics as well.

the majority of people who play games have a shit personality, little to no empathy and above all else, the sense of humour of a german potato.

that's why singleplayer games are better.

Amin, Vodoo.

Well, here's a question:

As it is a FREE, non-subscription-based game, does that player-base number include all those of us (like me) who signed up, tried the game for a bit, and never pursued it?

In other words: I haven't touched the game in at least a year - are they counting me amongst the 27-million?

this little tidbit of info from Kotaku should amuse you Fester:
90% of players in LoL are MALE with ages between 16 and 30. (as bad as that sounds, i think the truth if investigated is much more depressing)

also, to answer your question: 27 mil players active at least once a month.
