PC strategy game has added two million active concurrent players in five months, says developer.
The new milestone is a sizable increase over the 3 million concurrent players statistic Riot Games released for the popular MOBA back in October 2012.
Riot reports that League of Legends boasts 32 million monthly active players, with 12 million playing daily.
Valve's Dota 2, another popular MOBA, was revealed at the start of March to be digital distribution platform Steam's most played game of all time, exceeding 300,000 concurrent players.
Steam's previous record holder for concurrent players, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, managed 287,000 back in November 2011.
seriously Gamespot, You need to add Facebook login option. So we can see these trolls for what they really are. People like@Darnasian hide behind the internet way too much. tear down the barriers!!!!!
The community isn't great... But i dont know why you guys let ppl get to you. its only a game... most the time i dont say a single thing in chat... usually no point... ignore the trolls
@CaptainGamespot Yea... great game... but full of scumbags. But if you play with friends it's always great...... except when your friends becomes the jerks and start picking on other players :/
@Flamewolf75 If you can't beat 'em, you should considder not playing, because the people that bitch at everyone are generally really bad at the game anyway, lol.
@JimmeyBurrows @Flamewolf75 Well said! Well said indeed!
One of the most funniest thing about this community is when they call you noob for escpaing with low hp from a gank or when you own them. It's even funnier when you realise you're playing ranked against silver and gold players. Makes you think how retarded this world is.
@Darnasian ahahahah i know right!?!? that's sooo coool!?!?!? man, you must get laid sooo much!?!?!?! Ugh I was super elite at LOL like you bro!!!?!?!? teach me how to be GOD LIKE!!?!?!
Casual LoL player here and I agree. Really fun game though. You just have to keep thick enough skin to not care what people type to you online. It seems to have improved a LITTLE since 2 years ago, but has a long way to go still. It's especially fun with friends.
Tip 1: Stop skipping grammar classes.
Tip 2: Obviously you're the only loser that doesn't like it.
@Darnasian @FreedomPrime Do you have a steam profile, of a face book. id love to see them. Mine is Holy muff diver. My name is Gary Desjardins-smith. see, i highly doubt you are gonna actually give out your real name since most trolls try to hide how sad and pathetic they are in real life. Which based on the way you act I'm guess you are more then used to a few lonely nights. Begone troll. <3
based on the fact that this is me and that is my attractive girlfriend, id said I do have a life and a rather great one. Good luck with making friends! You are doing a wonderful job.
@FreedomPrime Oh , I'm sorry princess , but the time in my region is pretty late and I don't have enough to check my punctuation just to please a little bitch like you since I'm in a hurry. This being said , you should GET a life since you have none.Now I must go , I wasted enough time with a moron like you.
See you in some other topic , weird internet guy with no life.
@FreedomPrime Funny that you play the game , but you're not accustomed to it's own grammar. I find it even ironical that you couldn't even sense the connection towards the news page's subject game.
@FreedomPrime I actually do. Problem? Got mad? Oh chill , chill. I don't want any crybaby here.
@Darnasian @FreedomPrime You must have so many friends sir, you are a delight.........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
@FreedomPrime Oh wow! Hope you don't want to win the "Detective of the Year" award with that awfula nd obvious deduction.
This being said , the number of morons that came to troll on this page grew with 3..
I find it funny that people waste time on news pages of games they have 0 interest in.
BTW: How hard is it to finish a damn sentence with just one dot instead of multiplying them? You think you're cool by doing this multiplying the dots? Think again.
While I understand the appeal/value of LoL to some gamers, there are far too many people that have dogcrap personalities that play it. I realise the same can be said of quite a few online games but this one seems the least enforced on violations to say the least. Still popular is popular, have fun with it while it lasts.
@edinsftw You don't have to spend cash if you don't want to. I don't find the game unbalanced at all, particularly with the pick and ban phase. The only thing unbalanced about LoL is the community, so many trolls.
its fun game but lack of more maps and gamemodes really hurts. 3 maps is not enough imo
yeh its getting boring, i played this game for 3 months for atleast 4-8 hrs a day. it got boring real fast. they do fix balance issues, they nerfed my darius :(
