LoL Worlds has "the sport's largest viewership ever"

As with every year, there has been a lot of esports action for fans of League of Legends to enjoy, and now Riot Games has published a post looking back at the numbers for these events, including some very impressive statistics for last month's World Championship finals.

"The 2018 League of Legends season broke records, thrilled fans, and showcased the world's greatest talent competing in front of the largest audience in esports," Riot writes. "South Korea played host to an incredible tournament that attracted the sport's largest viewership ever and saw Invictus Gaming become the first team from the LPL to win the Summoner's Cup. As the season concludes we want to thank our community for their support and take a look back at the major highlights from the past year. "

An infographic broke down the numbers for Worlds too, with the historic final between Invictus Gaming and Fnatic getting the following numbers:
