When it was revealed that DotA 2 was attracting nearly 300,000 concurrent players and topping the Steam most-played list, we were all suitably impressed. But of course, we also knew that League of Legends was topping 3 million concurrent users, back in October. Also very impressive.
Well, Riot just revealed that League of Legends is now enjoying five million concurrent players. On a regular basis. That’s two million more players in less than six months.
“We’re humbled by the support of players and now more than ever feel the weight of those expectations,” says Riot, nervously. “Good luck, have fun, and please have mercy on our servers.”
