    Default LoL! Most Played PC Game In The World

    Riot Games League Of Legends Officially Becomes Most Played PC Game In The World


    For fans of eSports, there’s a shift going on that for the most part has gone under the radar. But new data from Xfire shows that Riot Games’ League of Legends is now officially the most played PC game in North America and Europe.

    When you add in the rise of the game in Korea, where it’s already beating out StarCraft II as the most popular game, it’s clear that League of Legends is here to stay.
    According to a new list provided by DFC Intelligence in conjunction with Xfire, League of Legends gamers logged nearly 1.3 billion hours of gameplay.

    In second place was World of Warcraft, which despite some usage declines, still registered more than 600 million hours of gameplay, not including Asia.
    “The fact that online games such League of Legends eclipsed more than a billion hours of online game time in a year is simply incredible, and a testament to the fundamental shift currently sweeping through the games industry. By comparison, Bungie recently announced that the Halo franchise surpassed two billion hours of online play, but that’s over a period of seven years.” said David Cole, CEO, DFC Intelligence.

    The report notes the recent popularity of the new Blizzard Entertainment title, Diablo III.
    “Diablo III was not released until mid-May but in just 45 days usage of the game has equaled 172 million hours. Usage of course declines after launch, but it is still doing quite well and may surpass World of Warcraft in usage over the next year” said Cole.


    Title Total US/EU play hours July 2011 thru Jun 2012
    League of Legends 1,292,502,456
    World of Warcraft 622,378,909
    Minecraft 371,635,651
    Heroes of Newerth 184,520,156
    Diablo III 172,907,605
    Battlefield 3 171,852,550
    MapleStory 165,503,651
    StarCraft II 163,980,293
    World Of Tanks 145,702,931
    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 126,754,082

    Logs only EU/US, says in the world. /facepalm

    Also, at any given time, TF2, Dota2, CS1.6, CSS, Football Manager has 50k players. That's ~440M hours a year, each.

    I'm pretty sure WoW is still the most played PC game cause they forgot to take account of how many people are playing on pirated servers...
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.

    wow will always be most played.

    but making number one in the list? be it only US and EU statistics, its still a great achievement.. isnt it?

    plus see that HoN in the list? this list proves that these DotA clones and DotA 2 will dominate in the future.

    ridiculous! WoW has the most played time ever if you consider the pirated copies of the game, and not to mention Call Of Duty 4 has enough game hours. Even my profile says, I've played 1000 hours of COD 4 and that's from 2011, when I started online from 2008.
    @Asik : that's because there are Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops and World of War in the middle which people still plays.

    Title misleading, its only top played game via official servers (no piracy) in EU and NA only using Xfire data.
