It's no secret that Riot Games's League of Legends
is the biggest MOBA
on the block, but just how big might come as something of a surprise. Riot has revealed that the League
playerbase has now reached 27 million players daily. Player concurrency hits about 7.5 million players during high-traffic hours; for comparison, Valve's Dota 2,
which most would consider League's
primary competitor, sees about seven million players per month.
The high numbers have done wonders for Riot's pocketbook, helping League
to generate over $624 million in revenue in 2013.
