Riot officials confirmed that League of Legends has more than 100 million monthly players, which makes it one of the most popular games in the world. The company was quiet for a long time and the last time they talked about their players was in 2014. In that period they had 67 million monthly players.
Some began to wonder if Riot is still one of the most popular gaming companies. However, it seems that they have nothing to worry because League of Legends is still the most popular game in the world. Even though the numbers could have been too large a few years ago, now everything is possible. Just think about how many people are having computers and play online games.
The reason why the numbers were given only now is because the manufacturers of League of Legends hate talking about this subject. For two years, they said they are not planning to update the player count.
What we know for sure is that League of Legends has nothing to fear in the future. They have tournaments, player streams with thousands of viewers and millions of people who enjoy playing this game. There are people who want to know more about the company’s financials, but Riot is not going to release them. All we have is the number of players, which proves that this game is the best.
It is hard to compete with League of Legends, when the next closest game is DOTA 2, with 13 million monthly players. Of course, there are also new games, such as Overwatch, who could have more than 10 million players, but they are not free to play.
This is one of the most important advantages League of Legends has. It is free, anyone can play it and there is always something new for users. Riot has not made more expansions for it. They just focused on this game and added new characters and items. Their plan seems to be working because more people are enjoying playing League of Legends.
There have been ten years since two gamers developed LOL from an apartment in Hollywood. They managed to make one of the most interesting games ever and now people in the whole world are playing it. We are sure that League of Legends will the most popular game for a long time and there will be more people who will want to play it.
