Spring's Player Stats / Peak Hours

Post by el_matarife »

I'm pretty sure the Spring player stats page has been gone for a while. Does anyone have up to date stats about the player count? I'm interested to see what the "peak hours" are for Spring. It is a huge pain to get a decent sized game together when there's only 130-180 people on, compared to 200 or 300+ people.

yeah, noticed that we have more players. wonder what caused this; was it all S44, or maybe springinfo, or what? whatever it was, we need more of it ^^

GMT -6 is US central time, but we're on daylight saving time so we're technically in CDT (Central Daylight Time) which is GMT - 5.

So, according to the graph the peak hours are 3:30PM to 5PM right now.

Looks like the number of players has been steadily growing since december (while previously it has been stagnating for at least 6 months):

Also, I had no idea 1vs1 battles were actually so popular! Or are those just people using TASClient for singleplayer?

hard to say based on that, but it looks like dark green has grown a bit.

I assume the periodic spikes are weekends, which is why the spikes are less pronounced during the summer months.

As far as I can see, 1vs1 games were always the most popular (though maybe it's because they need 8 times less players than a 8vs8...)

If you look at the number of players, we have now almost the same number of players in 1vs1, 3-8 players, 9-12 players, and 13-16 players games, with 3-8 and 9-12 player games slightly more popular.

13-16 games were seldom played before november-december 2008, which is interesting because it correlates with the increase of the player base. Did most of the new players went to play these games?
