For the chess i guess he means, for ordinary players , hmm well even up to grandmasters, no one can think xx moves ahead , so there is a random generation of chain_of_moves from a point and upwards inside our minds while playing Chess.

Riot seems to have about 1000 employees(2013 est) while blizzard 4700 (2012 est)
read this about 2012, is the tencent chinese company that acquired big portion of riot games
So a big portion of riot games capital is something less than 708million RMB which means something less than 85million euro/ 70something million USA.
Other (losses)/gains, net. We recorded other losses, net of RMB284 million for the year ended 31 December 2012, compared
to other gains, net of RMB421 million for the year ended 31 December 2011. The change primarily reflected the absence
of deemed disposal gains of RMB708 million recognised in the previous year as a result of the Riot Games Acquisition and
the Gamegoo Acquisition, and an increase in impairment provision against selected investee companies
Even if we assume thats just say 30% of the total capital, Riot games is about 210million USD, where Blizzard is
if these data doesn't reflect the reality of which company is bigger please give me some links i am very curious, kid woke up just now, i had no time to search more.
