Numbers have been excellent in the last few weeks, with peak hours drifting above 90 on the who list for long stretches. In fact, the last few days have even seen things peek briefly over 100 players now and then.
I figured I'd do a quick snapshot of how things line up, so we can think about what the playerbase looks like in such times:
Code: Select all
================================================ Novice 6 Greenhorne 7 Beginner 4 Apprentice 3 Wanderer 2 Adventurer 5 Adept 4 Great adventurer 4 (35 below veteran) ================================================ Veteran 0 Expert 1 Rising hero 0 Hero 0 Titan 2 (3 vet through titan) ================================================ Champion 6 (25 champion and above) Legend 5 Myth 14 ================================================ Average stat of all mortals = expert level ================================================
This isn't too surprising. Lots of players find the game now, and so we naturally have many who are very small and then see them growing up through the early ranks. Probably quite a few of them don't manage to like the game well enough to keep going, so we see a dropoff. The ones who do last are fewer than the many who keep coming, so we see a small number keep going through the middle ranks. But the players who do keep at it outgrow the middle areas and progress to the endgame levels, where we see our Champions and higher. The "myth" rank is twice as numerous as any other mortal level.
Food for thought as we continue to develop the game into the future.
