Dota 2

According to a report from DFC Intelligence, Dota 2 surpassed League of Legends in the first quarter of 2013 as the most-played "core" PC game in the West.

"Usage of League of Legends has been steady the past year and surprisingly the huge success of Dota 2 did not seem to cut into its popularity as much as would be expected," said DFC analyst Jeremy Miller.

LOL

"The past year has seen numerous blockbuster PC games that have really helped drive usage. This includes among others Diablo III, Guild Wars 2, Battlefield 3, Minecraft, World of Tanks and Valve's Counter-Strike series," added DFC analyst David Cole.

Dota 2

Note that the report only covers PC gaming in North America and Europe. Asian markets like China is not included. China alone counts for way more usage of [League of Legends] than the rest of the world.

The report also says usage of League of Legends and Dota 2 far surpasses World of Warcraft. This hints the continuing strength of the free-to-play MOBA genre.
