Today Riot confirmed the obvious, LoL is the most popular game in the world. What’s next, EAWare confirming that SW:TOR sucks? (wait what they already did that, nevermind)
Some of the numbers are kinda lame in that cheesy F2P make-believe stats kind of way, like comparing the 32 million active players of LoL to the 12 million WoW subs (at its peak). One group just had to download a client, the other paid box+$15 per month. Not exactly apples to apples guys…
70 million registered accounts is great and all, but F2P trash MMOs report higher numbers (because that number is meaningless). Why not say how many accounts have spent at least a buck on the game? I’m sure that number is decent too, and actually means something.
Then you have all the CoD/Halo/Xbox numbers. Why toss those in? Why not compare how many Teemo skins have been sold to the number of Wii characters created called Chuck, or something else completely out of left field?
LoL being played 90% by males is interested to me only because my wife is so addicted to the game.
Facebook ‘likes’ stat is embarrassing. LoL has about 3x more likes than a one hit wonder meme. Awesome job Riot. Next milestones, passing Danny at the dentist in youtube views. /sarcasm and this is why some people still consider gaming a joke.
