Your knowledge of statistics is severely lacking.  1000 people is enough to get a good representation of a large population if you conduct the survey properly.  If you don't, then a sample size of 300,000 done badly will get you really bad information on a much larger population.

Xfire isn't taking represenative samples of the gaming popualtion because its userbase is not a represenative sample.  It doesn't matter if they have a large number, because the base information is going to be biased and nothing is being done to try to counteract that bias.

lol, are you implying that all government/media surveys are conducted properly ... ?

In the mmorpg genre

 

 

 Guild Wars 2 (48.6%)

♦ World of Warcraft (21.5%)

♦ Star Wars: The Old Republic (2.7%)

♦ Aion (2.6%)

♦ Other (24.6%)

 

Even Swtor at his peak at start didn't top WOW. It was half of wow at best. Xfire users must really like Gw2

well now i see 80.000 hours for GW2 and 15.700 for WoW ...

Now it's:

 

♦ Guild Wars 2 (55.9%)

♦ World of Warcraft (11.0%)

♦ Star Wars: The Old Republic (3.1%)

♦ Aion (3.0%)

♦ Metin 2 (2.3%)

♦ Other (24.8%)

http://www.xfire.com/genre/mmo/massively_multiplayer_online/

 

This time we'll also look at the specific game's stats:

GW2

http://beta.xfire.com/games/gw2

WoW

http://beta.xfire.com/games/wow

 

Taking all the info into consideration (not just the % above but also the # of players and # of hours in the links) could give an insight on what might be happening on a macro scale but it in no way is this concrete data.  I would like to speculate that xfire has been around a long time so these are likely players that have been playing for a while which is why until now WoW has been on top.

The only real truth about these numbers...doesn't mean anything

 

Edit: I know hundreds of people outside my guild in WoW, and then there's about 150-200 in my guild.  I've never once heard about any of them using or even talking about xfire or xfire numbers...alot of people don't use xfire.  Like I said in the other posts,  it's like saying apples are horrible, because at the orange store people only buy oranges.

Its probably safe to say that, the same percentage of people using Xfire in WoW, and GW2.

I'm just going to assume you guys aren't going to ever learn xfire and raptr numbers are accurate within a 'not' with a margin of error of BS.

a lot of my old guildies stil are playing TOR, was talking with one on vent just before I logged off GW2 to come here and yes the population is still very stable on my old server. He was using Black Hole population when he runs his dailies  as a guideline. He said most people are migtrating to just a few servers so that is helping.

Oh and just my opinion but I fail to see how pandas will re energize WoW

These statistics make no difference, your flapping over nothing... Wait till MOP comes out and give it a few months then flap if GW2 is still dominating it.

Honestly these threads get boring.. it doesnt even make a difference if GW2 kills WoW. Most of the Anti WoWists are just ex players who got bored of the rinse and repeat cycle.

Additionally Xfire is just a pointless program that was useful during Steams early years.

xfire predicted SWTOR's dramatic player loss in early January, 4 months before any official data was available and before anyone in the press took a serious look at SWTOR's problems

there's 2 threads here about xfire and swtor.

it's almost insane how accurate xfire predicted this.

No it's not.

SWTOR was a major failure.  Anyone playing it for any length of time could see that.  The writing was on the wall.  Noting a major failure is not "insane", but to be expected.  Frankly, average players also noticed people leaving quite early on as well, if they hadn't left themselves.

why do people not understand how polls work.

 

do you think everyone is polled in the polls you see on CNN?

nope. they poll exactly 1000 people.

 

and a 100k xfire users are not enough for you?

Indeed. Why don't people understand how polls work?

** edit **

The premise of your thread depends on XFire working properly, and apparently, it's not working properly for WoW.

Thank you forum poster (whom I've already forgotten because it's early and I haven't had coffee).

Magenets?!? How do they even work?

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

 I understand the answers to polls are generally manipulated using the format of questions asked and selected sampling  which makes them as useless as X-fire. For instance if I asked a thousand people living in mud huts in Namibia if playing GW2 is better than WoW eating children alive it's not going to produce much useful data.

Apparently, because they're never entered or passed a first-year statistics course.  Not unusual, most Americans haven't.

No matter how often its explained, it's still magic voodoo, unless you're educated to the math language required.  Reporters don't understand it either; why so many bad polls make it to the national news level.

That's ok, reporters understand the hard sciences even less.  The "hype" for Kahoutek was generated in the media, not by the scientists.

Anyway, we don't need this thread again--the last one's still going.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
