Over 2 Million Summoners Tune in to Weekend Livestreams!
As you're all aware, this past week Riot Games was at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, bringing all the summoners of Europe their first look at League of Legends: Dominion. In addition to our presence on the show floor, however, we also had a demonstration of the new map and game mode streaming live for all of you to watch. Between this livestream and the epic battles taking place at the Intel Extreme Masters Global Challenge, a staggering number of you tuned in to share the week with us.
Here are just a few statistics that we collected from our two livestreamed events:
- 2.4 million summoners tuned in to view our Dominion and Intel Extreme Masters livestreams.
- During the final match of the Intel Extreme Masters, between Counter Logic Gaming and Team Solomid, 121,000 fans tuned in to the action.
- Nearly 75,000 of you tuned in to watch our League of Legends: Dominion livestream at once.
- Our coverage websites received more than 5 million visits over the course of the weekend.
We're extremely excited to once again be able to share such impressive stats with all of you, and remain humbled by the passion and dedication you show us time and time again. Your continued support is helping turn League of Legends into a global phenomenon.
