Folks together watched 360 million hours of the League of Legends [official site] 2015 World Championships across its five-week tour, say developers Riot Games. That’s a lot. Here’s the figure I like: “cumulative daily unique impressions” hit 334 million viewers, which I’ll disingenuously pretend is 334 million unique individuals rather than a flashy pointless statistic because it’d let me dick about with numbers myself.
Did you know that if you flayed every one of those 334 million, you could sew a skinquilt big enough to cover all of Bermuda – with room to spare for Gibraltar and Vatican City to come round for a sleepover? Also, that you are never more than 2.15 kilometres away from someone who watched it? Not anywhere. There’s a tethering system to space everyone out.
