Riot Games has shared the infograph of League of Legends 2014 World Championship, which reveals that the event had more than 27 million unique viewers.
The unique viewers count is lower than the last year’s event which witnessed more than 32 million viewers. The competition stayed on for whole 15 days, and more than 100 hours of content was broadcasted worldwide in 19 different languages.
Final showdown between Royal Club and Samsung White was the peak of concurrent viewers with more than 11.2 million people watching at the same time. This number is largely improved when compared to last year’s 8.7 million.
The infograph also reveals that during finals, people around the world tuned in with an average online time of 67 minutes, which is also an improved number compared to last year’s 42 minutes.
Finally, Riot Games thanked the fans for their participation and for cheering up their favorite teams.
It’s awesome to see fans enjoying Worlds as a community, whether it’s with 40,000 friends cheering together in Sangam Stadium, or as a group staying up late at a local viewing party halfway across the world. We’re honored by your passion and participation. Thank you for tuning in.
Riot promises that the next year will be vastly improved for League of Legends, and they will share more details on it in the coming weeks.
