I know it can be very difficult to get a hold of these figures as companies like to protect these stats but by how much are the playing figures down by?

At the times I have been playing over the past couple of weeks based on the "players online" indicator i am seeing drops of 40%.

Is this an accurate figure or is there some reason there has been such a drop. (I would doubt the CV rework has caused that much anger)

As players we can't know as what we see as players could just be anomalies, unless WG release the figures (which would be bad business practice if they're down) then we can't know for sure we have to take their word for it.

There's a bit of a trust issue when any games company releases figures after a controversial change as many of the sceptical tend to label them as spin or even outright untruths.

hmm i wonder if numbers have dropped or they only increased because of the CV rework?

One of the reasons i asked is that i had noticed that site went down around the same time the figures in the Port plummeted.

This site has been down for hours, as I was also curious as to the server numbers.

Since the rework, I've seen 30k+ numbers on the EU server multiple times. Highest I've personally seen is 34k

It seems to have dropped off since then. Making the carriers less fun to play probably helped a bit in this regard, but iirc numbers were usually more around 20k on EU or so.

 

It's really too bad those stats graphs sites are down atm.

I have seen pretty normal numbers.

 

20-30k at busy times and much less (around 7k) at quieter times.

 

Nothing scientific but I haven’t noticed any difference

You could also use the weekly stats from http://maplesyrup.sweet.coocan.jp/wows/ranking/index.html

copy/paste them into excel, let it add up all games played and you have some numbers to work with. Because "players online" doesnt necessarily tell you anything about "(random) games played". And I guess OPs question it aiming at randoms games played?

So... except from New Year's week the v0.8.x CVs brought more CV players into game...

I log onto the game most days - and hence will show as a "number of players online" - but find that i am now often playing just 2-3 games instead of my usual 10-15.

 

(Currently I find it easy to lose interest in the game: "bottom tier CA again in a game with two top tier CVs. I think I'll go play something else after this...etc")

 

If I am a typical player, then the overall number of games played must have dropped sharply, whilst the "number of players online" might not have dipped much.

So... except from New Year's week the v0.8.x CVs brought more CV players into game...

 

 

Leo "Apollo11"

It was very much expected as people tried out the new CVs. And there were some bad guys (looking at you Elza) who started to exploit them in the new meta.

However looking at the player reactions it very much seems that the noumber of played games have fallen even if the noumbers of active players didn't fall much. The biggest loss for WG seems to be the trust loss which is combined now with GC and that should be worrying for them.

Because if you turn into EA once there is no going back.

Dont know what You see, but I see 50% drop in CV players over last week. If this continues in a month we will be back to CV playerbase from few months ago.

I did count some weekly stats, comparing the last week up to the 16.02. with the week 15.12.

Last week, accoring to maplesyrup, 2.193.593 random games have been played.

In the week of 15.12. - 2.193.776 random games have been played. So hardly any change at all.

 

I have to say, im surprised myself. But interesting is also:

 

High tier DDs decreased from 388.894 to 260.855

Also: low tier games have increased a lot! They are up from 654.236 to 827.999.

Take with salt. the number of CV players and game played has fallen... by about 30%.

I"ve been playing since beta on NA and I have never seen population numbers as low as they now except for when other big name games released which is not the case now
