The MOBA train continues to chug along without much thought to stopping, with Valve's free-to-play title Dota 2 surpassing 1 million concurrent players over the weekend just gone, an impressive milestone for any game.

. According to the page the "Year Beast Brawl is like a normal match of All-Pick Dota, except that each team now has a powerful helper: their very own Year Beast."
To put the numbers into perspective, Steam has previously recorded a concurrent playerbase of 8 million. We know that Dota 2 is by far the most popular game on Steam, with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive coming in at second place, but 1 million is just a crazy number. Not as crazy as say League of Legends though, which Riot has previously pointed to a player record of 7.5 million.
