  1. Default LoL - the most played PC game

    Over a billion hours played. Impressive.

  2. Default Re: LoL - the most played PC game


    The question is...

    How many of those hours are just AFKers, or chatters compared to actual players?

    Or does Xfire ONLY record you as playing when you're in a match? I forget how Xfire works for LoL.

    If it only records when you're in match...that's rather impressive considering it's not that way for other games. If it records as long as any part of the client is up...then a large majority of those hours could just be AFKers, people in queue, or just chatters in general.

    It can be fun occasionally but mainly it's very addicting IMO.

    It records as long as LolClient.exe is running which is the lobby.

    I don't think the xFire thing records people who don't have the program because a bunch of my friends don't have it and they play LoL.

  12. Default Re: LoL - the most played PC game


    Then there's MapleStory...

  13. Default Re: LoL - the most played PC game


    Oh wow, I'm so, so, so, so surprised.
    Seriously, it doesn't take rocket science to know this....but I never expected the stats to be...well, this. Yeesh, congrats.

  14. Default Re: LoL - the most played PC game


    *per month

    Impressive...monthly?

  15. Default Re: LoL - the most played PC game


    Am I the only one here who regularly has fun playing the game?

  16. Default Re: LoL - the most played PC game


    Let's do some math! Pieces of info I don't have a rough source of is how many times Teemo dies per match.

    75 Teemo deaths/second * Teemo match/5 deaths = 15 Teemo matches / sec

    But Teemo doesn't exist in every single match. According to lolking.net, he gets picked roughly 10% of the time. In blinds, it is also possible for him to show up twice in a single match. So...

    15 Teemo matches/sec * 9 matches/ 1 Teemo match = 135 matches / sec

    135 matches / sec * 10 players / match = 135 matches / sec

    Now to calculate total time played...

    135 matches/sec * 86400 sec/day * 356 days/year * 1 year/12 month = 346,032,000 matches/month

    346,032,000 matches/month * 38 minutes/SR match * 10 players/SR match * 1hr/60min = 2,191,536,000 hours/month

    Conclusion? Well, that's only how many hours are wasted on Summoner's Rift, the most popular map. There's also Dominion (he's semi-popular there), Twisted Treeline (uh...), bot games, and custom games (a minority). And though I hope they're not that dense to include this, there's also spectator mode. Having said that, I'm inclined to believe there's some afking figured in there. Damn son, that's a lot of hours xD This doesn't include the other game modes: Twisted Treeline, Dominion, bot games, and custom games.


    EDIT: Forgot to include the fact that there are 10 players per match. Derp.

    It's a lot of fun, especially when you have a few friends to join you. For beginners it's hard because the learning curve is rather steep but once you've got some of the basics down you'll die less and have more fun.

    I'm still not going to play it. Congrats though.
