When Riot Games released Act 1 (episodes 1-3) of its League of Legends animated series Arcane on Netflix last week, the show was showered with praises from both fans and critics. Act 2 (episodes 4-6) of the series have reached even greater heights than the first three episodes. While Act 1 of the show reached No. 1 on the global Netflix TV charts with 38 No. 1 rankings in individual countries, Act 2 has shown more momentum.
