DOTA 2 breaks 1 million concurrent users, a first for Steam

It looks like DOTA 2 fans were playing in large numbers over the Valentine's Day weekend, with 1 million concurrent users

Valve has announced that DOTA 2 saw a huge 1 million concurrent users over the weekend, a first for both the game, and its digital distribution service.


But these numbers pale in comparison to that of the almost unstoppable League of Legends, which routinely sees between 5 and 7.5 million users online at once. But, 1 million users is nothing to complain about, with DOTA 2's numbers still double that of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which has the second highest player count on Steam with 420,000.

Team Fortress 2, even while it's still popular, only has 88,000 concurrent users, while Football Manager 2015 is the highest ranking non Valve game with around 71,000 concurrent users.
