Opened up the USA Today this morning and saw this.
Figured I'd share. Check out those numbers. There are approximately 313 men, women, and children in the United States of America as of 2012 statistics. If 32 million people are playing this game (not that I think that each of those account represents a single entity, nor even an entity of the US) that would be 10% of everyone in the country playing this game.
To put that in a more fun perspective. That's about 3 percent less than all the foreign born persons in the country. So try to imagine anyone you know who was not born in this country sneaking out to play League of Legends whenever you weren't looking.
It's also about 3 percent less that all the black or African American people that you know, so again, if you are black, and you look to your left, and that guy is not playing League of Legends, odds are that you and the guy to your right would be.
It is about 4 percent less than all the persons 65 years or older. So when grandma and grandad say that they are heading to Bingo, or to play some skeet ball, they're really breaking out their laptops (haha laptops) and playing some League of Legends.
It is 4 percent less than the poverty level. No wonder people are poor, who has time to work when there are battles to be won, characters to be bought, and tournaments to win in League of Legends!!
Anyway, just having fun with it. Nice to see one of our own in the newspaper.
