Dota 2’s all-time concurrent player peak has just met its match: CS:GO has just beat it with a whopping 1.3 million players and it’s still going strong. Booyakasha!

This is a first for CS:GO regarding Dota 2, since it was released to the market, but it took a coronavirus pandemic to let it rush past Dota 2’s high figure by gathering 1.3 million players to beat the crap out of D2. Both titles have been rising with all the social distancing hiatuses (or hiati?) scattered everywhere, which have made people download and play since there’s nothing much to do anyway (you can’t fap-fap the whole day… or can you? LMAO), but CS:GO went the extra mile, set a record and also left MOBA behind to look at it GO.


Hasta La Vista, DOTA!

Dota 2 had its peak in March 2016 with 1,291,328 players, and it gradually went down from there to sit at a 500,000 players average until now. CS:GO, on the other hand, has been uptrending and rising since November (possibly as side-training for the upcoming zombie apocalypse… just sayin’), and has kept on until it tore Dota 2 to the ground: CS:GO recently peaked at 1,301,348 players thus hitting the highest mark in history, and it has also made the most-played game by averaging 807,981 concurrent players over the last 30 days, beating Dota’s 473,491 average.

So, yes, it’s a little bit coronavirus, but also a little bit CS:GO. Still, let’s see how it fares when VALORANT from Riot Games takes the spotlight. Personally… Can’t FCKN wait!
