Riot Games have officially announced that they have reached 11 million active players. Not only that, over 4 million of those who play every day.

This amounts to a 280 percent increase since July 2011. The new mode Dominion has been released receiving great reviews from gamers and soon League of Legends: Season 2 will start hopefully bringing in more gamers with the tempting $5 million jackpot for whoever wins.

Riot Games' co-founder and co-president Mark Merrill had this to say: "It's staggering to think about the fact that over a billion games of League of Legends have been played since launch. In 2012, we intend to deliver even more for our growing audience."

Since its release in October 2009, League of Legends has seen over 30 million players worldwide. Seems as though this is just the beginning for Riot Games' debut title.
