Arena of Valor (also known as Kings of Glory) has more than 200 million users in China. The game is so popular that Tencent, the game developer, implemented a daily time restriction for young players to “ensure children’s healthy development.” Unlike League of Legends, people play Arena of Valor on their phones and matches only last about 15 to 20 minutes. The game is also popular in China because it’s integrated in the social media app WeChat — the No. 1 messaging app in China.
