World of Warcraft knocked off the top spot after years of reigning as MMO king!
The crown has now been passed to League of Legends, which has surpassed 11 million active players, with 4 million playing every day!
This news has surfaced after reports of recent declining numbers of World of Warcraft players; there are currently 10.3 million World of Warcraft subscribers, though in the past months, it has been reported that there has been a drop of a whopping 800,000 subscribers.
League of Legends is a free-to-play title unlike World of Warcraft, which begs the question, are players turning to free gaming experiences in the current economic downturn?
Either way, with popular MMOs going free-to-play, perhaps Blizzard will take this into account and change World of Warcraft’s subscription model.
