The first season of competitive play for League of Lengeds is now winding down. Developer Riot Games decided to take the opportunity to announce some statistics for the game. For starters, there are now over 15 million registered players.
There are about four million active players per month. At peak times, there are 500,000 players online in North America and Europe. What's that, you want MORE crazy stats? Well, here you go:
League of Legends is a Defense of the Ancients-inspired strategy game. Two teams of players compete to destroy each other's base. Each player controls a Champion, a powerful unit that levels up and gains new abilities as the match proceeds.
LoL launched in North America and Europe October 2009. Riot Games plans to expand the game to China, Southeast Asia and other regions by the end of the year. Those moves should make their playerbase stats even more impressive.
