Alright time to drop ship. Better learn all these complicated mechanics and play Meepo.

Steam has become so flooded with invites that you could run out onto the street, shout I NEED A DOTA, and be guaranteed that some passing stranger would hand you one. Im serious. Try it.

I want to see somebody try that now. I have 15 keys so if someone does it at UofI I'll be the one to hand the person one
EDIT: Also it didn't include players in Asia in their study and iirc the xfire stats were hugely skewed toward DotA in a past study even when league still had a much larger player base

Some important facts that you have curiously forgotten to note:
-Data is based on Xfire users (lol)
-The article states that this is only in the "west" and that LoL is still very, very far ahead of Dota 2

Basically, the company that is the source of this data is most likely being paid to prove that Dota 2 isn't terrible. Anyone with a brain can see the flaws in taking this at face value. Lets look at some more reasonable statistics shall we:

-Concurrent plays on Steam lists Dota 2 at just under 200k
-Riot's oft-quoted value of daily players is 5 million

Even if 4/5 of those LoL users aren't legitimate (smurfs and such) then LoL still has five times the users of Dota 2.

Pretty bad source. Not PCGamer, I mean.

Population doesn't really matter, because I'll be playing the superior game. Still, I believe D2 will overtake it at some point. It's got everything going for it.

200k concurrent users worldwide including spectator clients

Vs 5 million concurrent users worldwide

Yes I can see it.

I don't think you understand the difference between concurrent players and daily players. . .
