Alright, so obviously steamcharts are useless because of bots and we can’t see the number of players per server anywhere.
What we can see though are numbers for capture events and PvP weekly XP ranks.
On my server that’s on the lower end of EUC pop, Calvasus, there were a bit less than 650 people doing Medeia capture last week and that’s consistent with PvP weekly XP, because when you do Medeia, you instantly get on the board. So around 600-700 active players. Steady decline over the past few months.
There are other EUC servers that are lower population which probably don’t even have 500 players. There are also top4 servers that are highly populated (Thirain, Zinnervale, Wei, Kadan) and probably have between 2-3k (just my estimation).
I’d really love for people from other servers and regions to share their numbers on this so we figure it out when AGS won’t provide numbers. And it’s pretty easy if we get the capture event numbers for most servers.
My guesstimation is as follows:
19 EUC servers, low-medium population ones should vary between 500 and 800 players. Highly populated should be between 2 and 3k. Even if we take highest possible numbers which are probably not true, that’s like 15x800 and 4x3k for EUC. which is 24k. If we take lower numbers, it’s 15.5k. So anywhere between 15 and 25k active players. Even if we assume it’s summer and a lot of people are on vacation, that’s 30k. And there’s no way we have 30k, but let’s just assume it.
EUW? Dead and buried, I genuinely feel sorry for anyone who fell for their scam and wasted the time playing there. No way it has even 5k people. More like couple thousand, but let’s make it 5k.
SA? Maybe a bit more populated than EUW, but from what I’ve seen in here most of their servers are literally dead and it’s impossible for players to get anything on AH because the economy is non-existant. So probably also around 5k.
NAE? I think 3 well populated servers, with others being low-medium pop. Let’s assume it’s 20k, but most likely 10-15k.
NAW? Not dead as EUW, but a huge amount of players quit because they were literally unable to play the game for months due to bots. A couple of active servers, the rest is dead. 10k best case scenario.
So the end result would be something like 30+20+10+5+5k in absolute best case scenario. 70k people. Even if I completely misfired because I don’t know the exact numbers for other servers, there’s literally no witchery that would push it to 80k. Around 50k people that do even a single legion raid per week is more likely, if that.
And this number is declining rapidly. Even the most popular servers aren’t getting any decent influx of new players because by now noone from the outside is hearing anything good about this game and if they have friends playing it anyone sane would tell them to stay the fuck away.
There are pretty much no new mokoko icon players, only bots that are even easier to distinguish now.
*Again, I might be wrong for a lot of servers, so I’d really like people to provide actual numbers for capture events and pvp weekly XP because that’s the best thing we have for getting a better estimation. No other way we can get actual numbers.
We’re probably at ~50k regular players now and the game is losing players daily.
