Thread: Battle.net usage stat

  1. #1

    Default Battle.net usage stat

    I think I remember a discussion on this topic but since it is probably old, I'll make a new one.

    So when you log onto SC2, it tells you the following:

    -Number of players on b.net
    -Number of sc2 games worldwide
    -Number of sc2 games in your region
    -Number of players in chats

    Are those stats actually accurate? I usually see around 20k sc2 players worldwide. This is a really poor number honestly considering this game is supposed to be ''big'' in Korea. What I find even more weird is that it says that there are around 750 000 players on B.net. This probably does not include the WoW players(which are supposed to be millions) but there are only 20k sc2 players, can there really be 730k gamers on diablo 2 and sc1? This seems extremely unlikely.

    Another interesting observation is that the chat channels contains usually around 200-300 players. Probably 3 time less than the number of players asking for those same chat channels

    Assuming those statistic are corrects, do you think that the community is dying?

    The 20,000 you're talking about is current games.

    That's not too bad. I just logged on and saw ~14,000 games. The majority of which are UMS and teams games, so, let's say 6 players per game. That's 84,000 players, which is in line with what Blizzard games have always been.

    Assuming those statistic are corrects, do you think that the community is dying?
    I doubt it. It especially doesn't feel that way. It's just that in the past the user number was IMMENSELY inflated due to bots.

    Remember that while you're awake and playing, half the world is asleep .

    Also, I don't think SC2 really took off that well in korea.
