The world loves League of Legends, this much is obvious. Okay, maybe not love, but we can't stop playing it, as a new 2012 infographic shows. Riot Games released some interesting stats for their free-to-play MOBA, and it's definitely entertaining seeing how the numbers stack up against other multiplayer games or Internet memes in terms of popularity.
The Halo community has accumulated over two billion hours since 2004, which is damn impressive, but not so much when you consider League players take to the Fields of Justice for over a billion hours each month. Similarly, League of Legends boasts about 12 million daily users, while Modern Warfare 3's daily player count peaks at 3.3 million. Granted, neither Halo and Call of Duty are free games, and the global appeal isn't as widespread. Still, fun to think about.
Oh, here's another fun fact: Xbox LIVE has 40 million monthly subscribers while LoL has 32 mil monthly players. And every second sees another 75 Teemo deaths. Poor Captain Teemo, I loved him so.
The chart also shows that 90 percent of LoL players are dudes, which comes as a surprise to absolutely no one. Most players fall between the ages of 16 to 30.
