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 [3]) and over 8.5 million active accounts [1], has more accounts than League of Legends, which only has 15 million accounts and 1.4 million active accounts [2].

You are right. But that was 3 years ago. According to a new list provided by DFC Intelligence in conjunction with Xfire, League of Legends gamers logged nearly 1.3 billion hours of gameplay. In second place was World of Warcraft, which despite some usage declines, still registered more than 600 million hours of gameplay (not including Asia).

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.

Diablo 3 had become that popular was because it was new. However, after few months, it starts to lose players.
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.

Most games, if not, all games lose members after their releases. As for your comment about LoL in round 3, check this out. Today--today--Farmville has 5 million active members [u].

League of legends definitely has the most players, but Riot Games already proved this by posting statistics of the game vs other games. Here is a CNN article proving this: http://news.cnet.com...
Also citations should be included when debating feather662000.
