This is false. League of Legends has never released its concurrent numbers.

Didn't riot say there was just under 3000 LoL players at the end of beta when they released the top 500 elo?

No, they did not. They said there were 3000 people who had 1500+ ELO rating.

This is because in those ranges of elo, matchmaking speeds are slower and there is significant incentive to start a new account to get faster levels and IP via easy wins. This isn't actually fun for the players dong this, nor is it fun for the newbs, so these rewards (boosts, icons, etc) both recognize the skill of these players, and reward them for keeping their accounts.

people's preference totally depends on which they played first. Familiarity is comfortable. No one wants to stray from what they already know.

I believe he was referring to the xfire tracking data.

He was talking about the website traffic (which is publicly available for just about any site). Someone posted a chart a while back showing how HoN's website traffic started out higher than LoL's, then continued to drop down and spike back up every once in a while, whereas LoL has been climbing fairly constantly to the point of catching up in terms of daily traffic just recently.

For the love of god...
I mentioned it and its already there...


FORUM ACTIVITY SHOWS WHICH FORUM IS MORE ACTIVE
XFIRE NUMBERS SHOW HOW MANY XFIRE USERS PLAY THE GAME

THIS HAS NO CORRELATION TO HOW BIG THE POPULATION IN EITHER GAME IS

If you want real data, get it from Riot. If they dont want to release it they have some reason.



By your """"logic""" LoL has several times more players than Modern Warfare 2 ffs.
