League of Legends is the most popular online game right now
Debate Rounds (3)
Readers and opponent, because my opponent implicitly associated popularity with the number of users of a game, as Con, my task is to merely provide a game that has more accounts than League of Legends. Therefore, my argument is as follows: Runescape, with over 130 million accounts (over 170 million accounts in 2010 ) and over 8.5 million active accounts , has more accounts than League of Legends, which only has 15 million accounts and 1.4 million active accounts .
According to my opponent's source, from July 2011 thru Jun 2012 (366 days, approximated via a sum taken from sources 2 and 3 ), League of Legends (LoL) amassed nearly 1.3 billion playing hours. However, Diablo 3 amassed over 172 million playing hours in just 45 days (released mid-May, 2012), according to the same source. Check this out:
45 days Diablo 3=172 million hrs.
45 days LoL=1,300,000,000 hrs x (45/366)=a little more than 159,836,065.6 hours.
Diablo 3 is seeing a faster accumulation of playing hours than League of Legends, making it more popular than LoL.
League of Legends (LoL) is the most popular game in the world, although it is kind of new game mode for some countries. It still gets lots of players to play in the whole world.
