There is no exact answer to this question! Though I have an old forum link which can provide some/none information :) => https://www.warlight.net/Forum/92876-many-people-active-warlight?Offset=20

according to "Mr.Hymen" has said Fizzer has said that there are "Hundreds of thousands of unique accounts" which everyone is assuming is unique due to the introduction of coins.

More than 7,471.

There are more accounts than people.

No. There could be fewer accounts than people.

It might be helpful to have a count of number of accounts played in the last yyz days.

There could be fewer accounts than people.

That's impossible.*

  • People create an account for themselves, so 1 person = 1 account.
  • People multi-account (aka have alts), like Death. For example, 1 person = >=1 account.

To make it algebraic:
xp = xa
and
xp => a

Based on xp = xa:
(x/x)p = a
x/x = a/p
x = a/p

For example:
p=2, a=2

(x/x)*2 = 2
x/x = 2/2
x = 1 This means for every player, there is one account.

Based on xp => a:
x => a/p

For example:
a=5, p=2

x => 5/2
x => 2.5
because it's an odd number...
P1 = player one, P2 = player two
round up x: 3. So, P1 = 3. This means P1 has 3 accounts.
round down x: 2. So P2 = 2. This means P2 has 2 accounts.


* = *Sees j willy 47's comment.*
<small>Assuming there isn't account sharing.</small>

why dont we have a mathematical equation


if one=one
some share so one=1/2
some have more so one=2 or more

we know that death's alts make about 99%

therefore everyone else is the 1%

therefore there are 1000 real players and 99000 death alts

There's at least 6,892 unique accounts. I ran a few searches across all players that were in a clan (as of 4 days ago) or had ever competed in a ladder (seasonal, RT, 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3) and that's the number of accounts I found- including inactives and all.

If you want to find all accounts (no real way to exclude alts, but you can exclude inactive accounts, accounts that have played 0 games, accounts that never finished any of the single-player levels, etc.), you'll basically have to search the entire possible range of IDs (which I believe to be from 10000000 to 10000000000*- so that's 9,990,000,000 (successful) requests to the Warlight server, and 9,990,000,000 pages to scrape and parse unless there's a better way or Fizzer just hands you the answer). This is where BeautifulSoup comes in handy.

* from what I can tell, ID's range from 8 digits to 10 digits in length and never begin with a 0, so they cover at most the integer range [10000000, 10000000000).

So to the extent of my knowledge:

6,892 < # of total accounts < 9,990,000,000

@Knyte, Here is a secret. You can scrap a player's profile URL's two first digits and two last digits to find their "true" ID. This "playerID" goes up by one for each new account.

So Fizzer is, I assume, the 1st account at 4649. (there are players with Lower playerID, not sure how the player IDs were assigned in the beginning of WL.)

And a random account I just made is 606130.

Which gives 601 481 accounts in between. Yes. There is about 601 481 accounts made.. as of this writing. Goes up as time passes. Of course this also includes alts and Unused accounts.

If what your saying is correct, then so is the surprising data:



Full playerIDs:
Main - 9522268564
Alt 1 - 5527824594
Alt 2 - 9255379481

275549 accounts being made in a total of 602 days seem well to high, in comparison with 55560 being made in a total of 178 days.

Well to test that I am right you can just create 2 accounts right after each other :)

Also, that is a great way to use that information @DanWL. I might just end up tracing WL growth that way from beginning until the end.


@Ben, Well I neither feel that the player base have grown soo much... but then I think about the huge increase in number of trolls on the forum. Now that has changed a lot.
