Dota 2 Reaches 900,090 Concurrent Peak Users Thanks to The International

By   /   Jul 14, 2014

Valve is on a roll these days, reaching another milestone by hitting 900,090 concurrent peak users for Dota 2.

It should not come as a surprise that The International 2014 played a major role in accomplishing this goal. However, the thing that interests me the most is that the tournament is yet to enter the finales and whether it will help Dota 2 reach the 1 million concurrent-mark.

Nonetheless, it still is a commendable achievement; an achievement almost none of the Steam titles ever attained!

Other popular Steam titles worthy of mention are Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Team Fortress 2, and Unturned.

Check out these yearly stats, as posted by a Redditor:

If we talk about non-Steam games, we have seen a couple of titles going past the 1 million mark, but mostly at launch, unlike Dota 2.

At its launch, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 managed to attract 1.4 million concurrent users on Xbox Live.

Coming to Dota 2 rival, earlier this year, Riot Games announced that its popular MOBA League of Legends remains the undisputed champion with concurrent players peaking at 7.5 million.

In related news, The International is going strong and here are your top five teams at the end of day #4 of Phase Two:

  • ViCi 12-3
  • Evil Geniuses 11-4
  • DK 10-5
  • IG 9-6
  • Na’Vi 8-7
