Default Which country has the most number of DoTA players?


I'm just wondering because my main platform for playing DoTA is garena (gg client)

I'm from the Philippines and as I look at the different dota servers per country of garena, I've noticed that the servers for the Philippines has the highest population (around 150k players)

Also all of the players who rent at computer cafe's here play DoTA making almost all of computer cafe's here a DoTA LAN paradise.

Does that mean that Philippines has the highest number of DoTA players around the world?

No, it doesn't. Garena is only one of many platforms.

Maybe not the highest number, but possibly the highest percentage of DotA players in a country.

% is definately a much better way to look at it, in which case i would DEFINATELY say somewhere in europe. Almost all the proffesional dota teams are from around europe.

In Garena Russia and Taiwan have about 20k people. Other countries have less people.
And I don't think many russians play Bnet.
So if there is more then 20k for Bnet for concrete country, and China won't beat it, it will be the one.

In percent wise I think sweden wins hands down. About 10 million people and almost every game on northrend are "nordic" games, and in those nordic games about 8/10 are swedes...

But it's just a guess since I am a swede :O In most games, I join a game and almost always there is atealst one swede.

Philippines.
I'm a Filipino, but I'm here in Singapore right now. I know only 2 or 3 singaporean friends of mine who play DotA, and I'm in a really big school. Back at Manila, almost everybody played. LOL

Seriously. Its the Philippines. Whenever i was in school back there, we would go to the Internet Cafe's and everyone would be playing DotA! Not CS, not WoW, only DotA baby!

Garena rooms are filled with 225 people with about hundreds of rooms to choose from. over 35000+ people play Garena daily, so i guess there are hundreds of thousands of active gamers every other day combined.

In %, as I believe this thing should be measured in, I'd say Sweden. In th 50 Europe DotA rooms at Garena in maybe 9 games of 10 there is at least one swede in it, not to mention if there is one, there usually is another one too, or even more. Same thing on Bnet, many games there has "nordic only" in them, and they are usually 5 swedes, 2 danes, 1 norwegian and 2 germans.

Was already discussed. Also, Bnet has more players than Garena. Don't measure players by number of rooms/users.

Also, every statistic say that USA downloads the most, visits the most, hosts the most.

Getdota.com statistics:
* 11.4% United States
* 9.0% Thailand
* 8.6% Philippines
* 6.6% Malaysia
* 6.2% Indonesia
* 5.3% Singapore
* 4.7% Russia
* 4.2% Peru
* 4.0% Brazil
* 3.8% Australia
* 2.7% Vietnam
* 2.6% Germany
* 2.2% Canada
* 1.9% Turkey
* 1.6% India
* 1.5% Iran
* 1.4% Argentina
* 1.4% South Africa
* 1.3% Greece
* 1.0% South Korea
* 1.0% China
* 0.9% Romania
* 0.8% Pakistan
* 0.8% Venezuela
* 0.7% Sweden
* 0.7% Chile
* 0.6% Ukraine
* 0.6% France
* 0.6% New Zealand
* 0.5% Kazakhstan
* 11.2% OTHER


This proves that Chine has its own servers to download. Also, a lots of players share map through LAN, and moderate number downloads ingame. Still, I'm positive that the most players are from USA.

Garena has over 10 million users and 90-95% of them is WC3, and 85-90% is DotA so... In that case There is more than I thought using bnet.

If 8.5 - 9 millions of players play DotA at Garena, I'll stop playing DotA right now.

10 million? That sounds like an almost fabricated number from thin air, I hardly doubt 10 million people are playing dota through Garena, a lan based match set up. That is an enormous number.

I'm wondering how much players (on all the world) are playing Warcraft.

World of Warcraft has more than 15 millions players. MORE.
It's not imaginated.

Ofc theres most swedes in your games cause your b-net looks for the games with lowest pings, and since your from Sweden. Most games you will see on B-net is gonna be Swedish games.

I am danish and every Nordic-only games i joined (back in my pub time) there were atleast 9/10 danish players as well

From what I understand BNET lists all custom games avalaible. And thus you will find more Swedes than Danes in whatever dota nordic only games you find (some exceptions of course).

The number of wow players is astronomical compared to Dota. Wow is grossly more popular than Dota.

Given that 15 million play wow I find it extremely far fetched to say Garena alone has 10 million people on it.
