DFC Intelligence is reporting that Valve’s Defense of the Ancients 2 (DotA 2) and League of Legends (LoL) are now not the only most played games, but also are more popular than Blizzard’s behemoth World of Warcraft.

“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.

PC Gaming went up by 22% as opposed to first quarter in 2012, with particular titles according to DFC.

“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.
