it would be nice if someone did a daily tally of players at JP and NA primetimes on all servers everyday for a week so we could get a avg of all players aka

selbina NA primetime 1k jp primetime 2k avg 1.5k
ect ect ect

then avg that everyday for a week to find the true avg as certaindays aka weekends ect may have more players. and then do this once more after the dec updates to see if pop goes up any or at all

i dont care abt the fact se sold 500k copies cause theirs obviously not 500k ppl playing this would give a good avg to the quit/still playing ratio as well

another reason id like this done is i did this myself on both tabula rasa and auto assault and knew they were destined for failure before they even announced it.. even though i had alot of negative comments on the threads on those games abt server population ect

but unlike AA and TR FFXIV charges $3 per character slot so i defiantly dont want to spend all that money to check each server

also to get it out of the way now before someone says i wont be charged if i do it then cancel. you dont know SE. you can make a character for 1 day cancel it the same day and be charged still.
also creating/deleting over and over for each server going thru all the c/s youd miss prime time on some of the last servers you check

i propose volunteers.

first we need to specify what we agree "prime time" is. for me its abt 4-5pm CDT NA and idk for JP

if we could get people who are on at jp and na prime times on each server so no one has to spend extra money to help to volunteer and post the numbers id be happy to update the thread here on the first post

this is not for everyone im sure and alot of ppl gonna hate me for even proposing this calling it useless ect. i know its not for everyone but it is for SOME for one itll help me decide to stay on or quit once the $50 i had added to crysta day 1 before i knew what i was getting into.

secondly it will help those deciding to wait to see if pop goes up.. it was worth waiting so buy. if pop goes down.. or remains solid. maybe look for something else

I'm on Besaid server and I'd be willing to chart down some server numbers, just tell me when and what time (eastern time). But I can take care of Besaid, it'd be interesting to see populations on other servers too.

Day 1 Istory

Today @ JP prime time 1354 hieght (i'd just say between 1300-1400 to be safe
Tonight @ NA prime 954 hieght (was around 894 for a while than as PST 9pm came in it shot up)

I'll update as for tomorrow JP prime but I will miss NA prime and won't be able to test this weekend. But i can pick it back up on monday.

Also you may want to get a good estimate of how many of those #'s are afk bazarers. I'm willing to bet on Istory that **** 200 of those people in both prime times are afk bazarers.

looks like SE was kind enough to do all the work for us.. general pop across all servers 30k and going doooown...

here

and of course the whole wadu thing admitting the game is fail..

i can guarantee this. 30k subscribers = a dead mmo.... tabula rasa dead... actually more like A.P.B. dead.... game will be shut down either b4 or right after ps3 release with numbers like this

I dont want the game to shut down before I get a class to 50, but im a slow leveler (atleast now, due to bordom) so I may never see 50.

it could very well drop to 15k or so

but even with 30k players that is NOWHERE near the amt necessary needed to pay server and dev costs. SE will be losing $$$ which will lead to cancellation as we have seen on so many other mmos

APB
Tabula Rasa
Auto assault
Final Fantasy XIV????......
we'll just have to wait and see but its looking that way

i mean.. theyve BANNED more then 30k players from ffxi so yeah... this aint good


You seems to not understand the chart, 30k active at peak for the week, doesn't mean only 30k people actively play. It can be 30k, but it can also be 90k actively playing, because most people don't log in 24/7. WoW at its peak had peak concurrent user barely under 2.5m, but it had 12m+ active subscribers.

that being said and have been said hundreds of times on this forum

even that 30k avg im 100% positive will decrease MASSIVELY once we have to start paying to play


You need better reading skill, because you clearly confused about 30k average and 30k active in your own posts. Very good attempt at trolling.

Nah man the info is in game, just click the party tab and it tell you how many people are logged in on the server.

besides your argument makes little sense if it was indeed 90k or so SE would use that number to make it look like they have more players then they do

also as i implied but you've yet to realize so i guess i have to spell it out to you

none of these numbers are active subscribers this is still free trial and til the 25th any number is still considered to be free trial.

once the free trial ends how many of those players do you REALLY believe will stay?


Because you don't even understand the number indicate how many people on at peak time? That's what the graph is about. Seriously, do you even understand that most people are not online 24/7? Unless everyone is online 24/7, then the peak time logged in is NOT the total population. That's why I said the WoW example, total active population (not subscribers since you're so dead on about it's still free trial period) are approximately 6 times the peak time population. You, sir, are a very bad troll and can not even understand what you yourself is talking about. If peak time users indicate the total population, even WoW make a huge loss, every single MMO out there is dying/already bankrupt. And right at this moment Gysahl has 2341 people LOGGED ON FFS, not total 2341 players.
