Summoners,

Saturday the 13th was an incredible moment for everyone here, as we crowned our Season Two World Champions. Weve put together a video recap of the event which we hope you enjoy, and wed like to share a few interesting facts about the audience for the event:

  • Over 8,000 of you traveled from all corners of the globe to cheer on Azubu Frost and the Taipei Assassins in person
  • More than 8,282,000 unique viewers tuned in for the World Finals via TV and stream worldwide (including 2,402,225 TV viewers in Korea and China)
  • At peak, over 1,154,000 people were watching online alone (not counting any TV numbers) during the World Finals
  • Over the course of both the World Playoffs and Finals, people watched 24,230,688 hours of League of Legends

Were floored. It is your enthusiastic support that inspires us to strive for bigger and better things next season.

Thank you,

RedBeard

8 million? Heh, not quite the Superbowl but it sure as hell puts a lot of other stuff to shame.

Jk

Anyway, I went to the finals. The venue and the overall atmosphere were truly amazing.

And that trophy. It was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes.

I'll definitely go again as long as traveling isn't an issue for next season.
