The Wall Street Journal is reporting that over twenty-seven million players log into League of Legends each and every day. The report was confirmed by Riot Games which also announced that it has counted 7.5M concurrent users, significantly up from last March's 5M.
Partially contributing to that success is the game’s business model. Like many online games these days, Riot doesn’t charge customers initially to play.
Customers can choose to play the game for free, or they can choose to pay for cosmetic items such as a different look for their character. The company also offers a rotation of various characters with different abilities that customers can play for free; customers can pay to play as a specific character when it is not available for free.
