Well folks, the Season Two World Championship, which took place as USC’s Galen Center in LA, has ended. The Taipei Assassins ended up defeating the Azubu Frost team. And all of this happened with over 8 million people watching it at home!
That’s right, over 8 million people tuned in to watch the World Championships, and what’s interesting is that it wasn’t just limited to internet streams. In Korea and China Riot said that 2.4 million people tuned in with their TV sets to watch the game. All in all, it’s a good turnout for any event, let alone a gaming championship!
Here are a few other interesting statistics for you: During the finals they had a peak of 1,154,000 million people watching it at any one time, and overall people ended up watching over 24 million hours of LoL. By doing some simple math you’ll note that the average person watched the World Championship for around 3 hours. All in all, this was a resounding success, and I’m willing to bet you’ll be seeing another World Championship pop up next year.
