: I was talking about the ones wich play only on console or mobile or prefere that over PC. In the US the market (counted for revenue) is 1/2 mobile and 1/4th each for PC and console. You want more numbers for League? I collect them as far as they are available. - I can tell you that in Korea´s gamecubes League is back on top with 30% market share for 9 weeks now even nearly for 2 years overwatch and PUPG were on top: https://abload.de/img/gametri92018i4clr.jpg - further on League is on the rise in China again. The online time were down to 310mil and are up to 400mil july: http://5b0988e595225.cdn.sohucs.com/images/20180809/aaa109e8186d4c8886981df0fdd8264c.jpeg - August was the first month in wich (for revenue) LoL was not the no1 but no3 behind DFO and WoW [on US market only]. But this is only a short period. Even to mention LoL´s revenue in August droped by 21% y2y. https://www.superdataresearch.com/us-digital-games-market/ But you can see there also console and mobile. The numbers for september will perhaps show that Fortnite is no1 on mobile also because of the Android launch. - If we compare League with Fortnite it looks like that League is constant and Fortnite is beyond peak (for PC) of hype. In some countries like Germany LoL seems to be partially in front of Fortnite now [and hyping in countries like Turkey and Brasil]: https://abload.de/img/alexalolepicxwcrh.jpg Even to mention that Fortnite asia will launch anytime. - op.gg ranked players for example in the US counted 200k players less at beginning of the year [as for april2018 1,2mil to 1,4mil in 2016] and the same amount actually [1,6mil to 1,8mil]. Conclusion is that the players droped by 10-20% (same as revenue) but over the year the amount of "new" players remained the same as in 2016. Seems to turn out all right. Nearly the same for Korea and partly EUW. So. I can´t tell you exact numbers of players for League. I can only _guess_ that League is the most played _PC_ game of the world [I am sure it is]. The numbers for Fortnite are not comparable because they add up with console and mobile. Alone the start for android brought around 14million downloads [=counted as unique log in last month]. As the "journalists" about this are rare and mostly bad [overhyped] there is not much trust in any written articles. I research on my own.
Cool tnx for the info, really appreciate it. And yea we all know fortnite is beyond its peak ( S3 ).

: We have no data. But for the site you mentioned it is about core _PC_ games. Fornite is the most popular _console_ game. It has more players in the west because it can be played across platforms, also mobile. The mobile sector of Fortnite alone had more then 100million revenue with 75million (3/4) spent by US-mobile-gamers. If it is about most players in the _world_ League is imho actually the biggest because of the asian gamers. But mobile is imho the largest sector so fortnite may grow further on (asian market, android version). In my opinion the hype is over and the numbers will calm down further on until end of the year. An ego-shooter is ("only") an ego shooter. It is not my genre but I believe actually that the half-life of a game out of this genre is not very high.
We talking about PC only, league doesnt have console, and also, a lot of ppl have both PC and console. And yea the hype is over, battle royale games dont last that long. How ever tnx for the feedback.

That is true. However, are you just going to count out Asia ? If we are doing it by your ways, does that mean we should count out NA and Europe bcs they mostly play Fortnite ?
Hansiman (EUW)
: I don't know. I just thought Fortnite was the biggest atm.
Well fortnite has Over 79 mil rn..... hopefully a rioter might give us some detail :D
Hansiman (EUW)
: I'd honestly assume Fortnite is larger with monthly players right now. Battle Royale games is pretty popular right now, and league is 10 years old.
Yea i'd say ur right...... does that mean the site is outdated ? xd or just run by League players ?

: >Well technically it is ALMOST as old as League, but officially played, it's like 1 year old or less, i don't remember when it was released. Fortnite is still in beta so not even released yet.
PUBG was in beta like few months ago so yea they release it when the games dies to try to bring it back xd

: Yes, league is not dead or dying. However, your numbers are completely pulled out of your ass. There are no valid sources for player numbers after september 2016 which was 100 million monthly players. We don't know if league has lost or gained 20 million players. It is expected that league has lost some, but that's completely normal and the loss of players is not linear. So you cant say that if league lost 20 million players in a year, it has lost 40 million in 2 years. That's not how it works. The player count decay always slows down because the casual variety players are the ones who leave first. Those are the type of players that don't get attached to one game for too long. Then there are those like me who have played the game for 8 years and won't leave no matter what other games come to market. Btw, league is getting new players constantly. Moba is just a genre that is hard to get into at first.
First i get what you mean and sorry about that i ment 20 mil in 2 years not 40 mil,

: I do agree that it's fun, but when we take into consideration that in D3-4 MMR I have to wait 27 min for a ranked match in queue, that isn't so fun for me. Since everyone is playing URF. I don't mind people having fun, just not my expense - if you know what I mean.

{{champion:238}} if he doesnt build {{item:3076}} {{champion:8}} bcs he has a lot of sustain just like him and will outsacle him and can kill him in a 1v1 {{champion:48}} this champ is a fking idk its BS so thats why he can beat him {{champion:50}} he can poke him and run away form him easy {{champion:58}} rene counters everyone {{champion:75}} bcs he also has sustain. Basiclly every champ with sustain will beat cho.

: Why I think old players are quitting this game
I will have to disagree with you on the Punishment system. Riot games prob has the best punishment system ever, take it form a person that already got banned for inting only 1 game and got punished for saying bad words and being toxic, but i can gladly say that i have reformed and am over toxicity 1 ban is all that it takes 99,99% of the players to stop being toxic, about the blacklist IT DOESNT EXIST, funny how ppl say that saying the N word saying "%%%" or some other racist/offencive stuff will get ya banned is incorrect. In order for you to get punished/banned you have to be reported in 3 games by more then 4 ppl IN ONE DAY and then riot system decides if its inting or being toxic, you can always reform, and reset your punishments. But if you int feed you will surly get found and banned (14 day/perma depends on, did you int any games before that one), sure there is a system that targets players that take ghost and clanse, but thats how most of us do it when we get tilted.
: With the age of increasing micro-communities through discord/TS and such, custom URF games would be a negative impact and a huge hit, when it comes to queue time health. I can think of more reasons, but this should be the main concern - in my book.

I can think of more reasons, but this should be the main concern - in my book. Hmmm i mean you are right but im not saying have URF forever just when it comes out, and not only URF every other gamemode as well, there should be an option for custom games with friends idk how that would be negative to have fun with friends, and when it comes to discord/TS groups that would make it even more fun going in to custom games with random ppl and meeting new players from around the world. I mean you already do that when you play normal matchmade URF but this would be way more fun - my opinion.

: it has been 1 time for the last 2 years and now it has been 2 times.. so i really dont see a problem here? if we would get it every month people would get tired of it pretty soon. making it just another RGM.. now everytime it shows up it feels amazing as the game mode is rare..
Ty this was my first discussion ever i just wanted to get some answers ty to you and HUMPELSTILZHE.
: Before you throw around numbers you should actually count ;) Luckily we had the exact same topic on the german boards today and someone did actually count. Here you go: Poroking: 3 Hexakill: 3 Ascension: 2 Ultra Rapid Fire: 2 One for all: 2 Definitely not Dominion: 2 Nexus Siege: 2 Other modes like Doombots, Blackmarket Brawlers, Nemesis Draft, One 4 all Mirrormode, 1vs1 and all those modes I have forgotten have not yet been part of the rotation at all!
Well then looks like i did not do a very good job at counting. Ty for that i regret this discussion. :/
: what do you base that on? just because alot of people beg for the mode dosnt mean it is the most popular. you have no idea about the numbers that actually plays the game.. making your statment invalid.. URF is something to look forward too. if it came often it wouldnt feel special anymore and get boring after a while. this way it always feels fresh and fun.
And no i dont base that on "just because alot of people beg for the mode dosnt mean it is the most popular" i base that on cuz a lot of people that stoped playing league come back just to play URF one more.
: URF is like candy. If you get too much of it you get sick. The occasions where URF was activated for longer than a weekend clearly showed that. The first one or two days are fun, but people quickly pick up the "best" champions and the mode becomes boring and people complain about tryhards. That's why it's important not to have URF too often. > dont you ? Nope. Also don't forget that it's not everyones favourite game mode, just because it is YOUR favourite gamemode. I for example prefer Black Market Brawlers, a mode that was part of the rotation exactly zero times. So please don't complain about "only" having URF 2 times in 4 months, that already is a luxury.
I will give you the same answer as i give to LOOKBEHINDYU "Poro king has been out 5 times, one for all 3 times nexus siedge is a new mode and its been out 2 times already what im tryin to say is that URF has been out only 2 times when it should be 3 like the rest :/."
: what do you base that on? just because alot of people beg for the mode dosnt mean it is the most popular. you have no idea about the numbers that actually plays the game.. making your statment invalid.. URF is something to look forward too. if it came often it wouldnt feel special anymore and get boring after a while. this way it always feels fresh and fun.
Bro i did not ask for URF to be 24/7/365 i just ask to be more often like maybe one in every 4-5 weeks cuz Poro king has been out 5 times, one for all 3 times nexus siedge is a new mode and its been out 2 times already what im tryin to say is that URF has been out only 2 times when it should be 3 like the rest :/.
: you got urf 2 times this year instead of 1. be happy for what you got instead of begging for more. they could just have never brought it back but they did it , 2 times =)
Maybe you are right about having URF 2 times in this year but why. But then again its the most popular game mode so i think it should be on live servers more often :/ dont you ?
