Thanks.

It's quite a big number. Like 5, maybe even 6, players.

Everyone is an alt of either Death, FK, Qi, myhand, HHH, Pulsey or Nauzhror, so Min is wrong.

I think knyte can run a query to find how many players were active în the last seven days... Ask him

I'd guess like what. 5,000? I honestly have no clue. I know there are at least 7.

I can give number of accounts in about 120 minutes from now. I don't know how much actively play though.

Edit: number of accounts excluding ones that have been 'deleted'.

There are roughly on average 15 000 accounts registered per month on this year. Last year it was slightly over 16 000 accounts per month. But it is hard to estimate active players - Fizzer has not published any data and it is hard to estimate it. You can check games made by the ID-but it does not tell how many of those were 1v1 up to 40 FFA nor how many ended before they even began.

One interesting estimate of players activity would be how many there are open Real-time and Multi-day games compared to previous months/years, but I don´t know anyone who would have kept track on it. If it would be recorded 3 times a day with interval of 8 hours it could give a good data point for comparison.

Dan, are you done with your calculation?


Also thanks to those who answered me really, and for these estimate numbers.
I'd still wait to Dan's answer anyway, I could get how many alts are there.

Are we making a distinction between unique players and unique accounts? The responses are inconsistent on which is being measured.

In total there are around 740 000 accounts. Fizzer have said in Twitch stream as well, that are hundred of thousands of players, but do you really think that? Even if every 10th made account sticks to the game would be quite optimistic measure of real player-base and from that you can subtract the alts.

The best estimate you can get is to look at ladder players (think what proportion of players there are), then look open games + multi-day games, and consider around equal proportion of hidden games or pre-seated ones + prerequisites you can´t see. Now think of an average player: how many games he/she has open, how long an average game lasts and how many players on average a game has? There is no right answer, just estimates. To me it is not even near to a 100 000 thousand.

"In total there are around 740 000 accounts."

This number comes from where?


There have been between 8,571,269 games played since I registered, which boils down to 6,100 games per day. That's perhaps a more useful measurement of activity than trying to guess how many people play IMO.

I assume spam accounts are counted?

Not that it matters, I was just reminded by spamming for some reason.

If anything, spamming could artificially inflate people's views of how active the forums are.

I think all spammers should be banned permanently, as tricking people into thinking the forums are fast-paced is wrong.

@Bane There's over 70 spam accounts included. There are also some accounts that are deleted-from being invited but declining the invite. The first 4500ish player IDs don't exist, so I didn't include them.

@Shread I can't get the data automatically, but I can get it effectively in a couple of hours when I'm not busy.

@Nauzhror

The number comes from player ID-s. Like DanWL calculates them. I am just lazy enough not to find the latest registered player. Then compare it to first registered player - Fizzer.

Games per day solely is not exactly better estimate. If this would be juxtaposed with accounts created daily, then you could get quite good activity data. But again none of it tells you how many are there daily/weekly players and so on.
I have no idea how to collect data on games activity effectively, but if someone has data of games created per month I´d be interested in it. But all declined, deleted, unfilled games have also ID-s which makes them false on statistics.
