Well, it's official (sort of). The World of Warcraft-killer has been named, and they're calling it League of Legends.

A research firm known as DFC Intelligence has released a report claiming that Riot's MOBA was the most popular PC game in North America and Europe last year in terms of hours played. The title took home the top spot with 1.3 billion hours of activity, while WoW dropped to second place with 622.4 million user hours.


What a relief that is. People do prefer gameplay.

Also left out the part that it's been known for quite some time that LOL was the most played PC game in the world.  It's also a MOBA, so it's a completely different genre than WoW is.  And being free to play doesn't hurt, either.  I also question Massively's use of the term, "WoW-killer" when these two games aren't in direct competition.   

And how does LOL being more popular imply that people prefer "gameplay?"  Isn't this something WoW is well-known for?

I don't play it myself but I've played a fair amount of dota and I understand how you might think it's boring. On the flip side if you have two teams evenly matched it's quite exciting to fight your way to victory.

The thing to remember is that in an arena microing IS the gameplay. Just think of it as a lobby based shooter and it might make sense. The maps aren't huge or dynamic but people will keep playing them over and over because it's PVP. Each round is ever so slightly different because of the playerskill involved.

The thrill of beating another human being is something that can only be felt first hand. The heart races. The mind sharpens. You become one with your skillset. You summon every ounce of knowledge you have of the classes and formulate 50 different possibilities within a second and then react accordingly. You wait for the perfect chance to strike. You execute your plan before the enemy can react. Sweet sweet victory.

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

I hate both games really...

But wow is a MMORPG...

LOL is just a rts with all the good bits removed...

Both games are boring as hell for me LOL :)

 

Also i believe this rating was taken from xfire stats...

 

Does xfire include online games like Runescape?

Anyone still attempting to use XFire to base their "facts" on needs a brain rewiring.

Stupid article. I think CoD has more players that WoW in NA and EU, but noone is calling it a wow killer.

Xfire again, I haven't every played any games with anyone that even uses it. I tried it in 2007 and uninstalled it after a week.

It's also laughable that LoL has toppled WoW when they are not in any way competing and half the people I know that play WoW also play LoL.

I prefer DOTA2 myself but I am terrible at these games, they do take skill though and are pretty fun to watch the best player go at it.

So you are saying that any game where you controll one character and the rest are scripted NPC's is a RTS?

ARTS =/= RTS

Even in the first 4 lines of that page it says it's not an RTS.

Thats not even close to what he meant, its pretty obvious what he means.

It is like an RTS but you only control one single unit. In his opinion controlling everything in the RTS is what makes it good hence why he thinks its an RTS with all the good things removed.

LoL isn't my type of game, but I can see why it is so popular. As for being a wow-killer though, they're not even in the same genre!

I would place Runescape closer in terms of the same genre as WoW than LoL, and it has way more players. 

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

So WoW is dead ? It no longer has millions of players ?

 

Weird, I would have thought that the death of WoW would have been front page news on every gaming site in the world. Seriously strage days that WoW could go out, not with a bang, but a whimper.

When all has been said and done, more will have been said than done.
