Pretty much bet? Im gonna go with logic on this one and say its a certainy that a game or anything you a population graph will peak...

If you continue to make sweeping statements like you know what everyone everywhere thinks about a certain topic then I am going to shout at you.
It easy to type 'I think this is the worst game ever'
Rather than the 'This is the worst game ever'

Didn't WoW peak 4 years after its release?

No.

The OP doesn't limit itself to saying it peeked.

It also says "it will be interesting to say if this trend continues" and the trend in question is a downtrend.

And some have also interpreted, based on the posts, that what this means is GW2 is dying and players are leaving by droves.

Did it suddenly become less serious now?

I am pretty sure i did not post in that thread... So why you are qouting me i have not the slightest.

 

But yes i was being sarcastic. X-fire are good for broad general trends but it is very fickle for short time.

This have been a good conversation

Interesting thread, but it's far too early to draw any conclusions.

Next to that, you need to a couple of other things in mind:

- weekend hrs will be higher than weekday hrs, simply bc Xfire measures players during the day and number of hrs, and ppl play more on average in a weekend day

- if you want to compare, better do it with the same day in different weeks, like a sunday with a sunday, a wednesday with a wednesday etc.

Another thing, which isn't Xfire related but regarding other tracking tools: the peak concurrent users is often higher during weekdays than weekends, bc more people will play around the same time at a weekday evening than other times. However, this only applies when a regional player base is tracked, not a global one.

As for what we can see so far regarding GW2:

- the number of hrs for this week's tuesday (73.1k) is lower than that of last week's tuesday (81.1k), but the number of players is higher (13k vs 14.2k) in Xfire

- the number of players now is about 150% of the number when they said they had over a million pre-sales

What do you expect to happen when you track a game's hours played from Sun - Tues? Try it again from Thur - Sat and you will get increases in all games. Think before you post.

The half a milion hours logged every day by xfire people would suggest there are still one or two of them yes.

 

At last a good old thread....Gratz to OP...Keep the tradions alive.

And some have also interpreted, based on the posts, that what this means is GW2 is dying and players are leaving by droves.

However you can't call it a down trend when all games are showing the same population changes for the same exact days. It's simply a bump as a result of outside factors, in this case the holiday weekend in the U.S. and school starting for a huge number of players at the same time. To claim it's a trend for any one game you'd have to show it being relatively specific to that one game over a longer period of time. Say for example the next four weekends show a 20% drop in players from the one before them. That's a trend forming. But if there's a dip on one weekend and not the others you need to look at outside factors that may have affected that one weekend.

OMG!  The holiday weekend ended, school started, and the XFire numbers are down!  Stop the presses :)!

Just to add that last tuesday was a) game launch for non pre-orders and pre-purchases and b) it was an august tuesday aka as  holiday month in the northen hemisphere.

Yeah the logic is really bogus with the GW2 crowd. Basically "all hail X-fire" when it benefits them, but when it is used against them "X-fire is not accurate" . Gotta love the double standards 

At least with a sub game they know that people won't tolerate bullshit and leave. With anet we have no recourse but to buy our own lube so our assholes don't get too stretched out from getting bent over a table at Anets will. - Hrimnir

 LOL really?

Do you really think that people don't play games more on weekends than weekdays?

That said, I fully expect GW2 hours to drop off a bit from the initial weekend even next weekend.  Folks are basically getting out of their "MUST PLAY" phase.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

 Not really

I find it pretty stupid and useless in both cases

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

Why kill them with kindness, when I can use an axe?

9/05/12 10:51:57 AM#76

Been gaming online for 12 years and in MMOs for 9. In all that time, I used xfire for about 2 months. My online friends which number in the hundreds do not use xfire. I take that back, A few did and might still do. The guild I am currently in which I joined with Age of Conan and now play GW2 in does not use xfire. 

I do not use xfire as a gauge for a game. I will now return to the shadows and let you continue.

 It's not perfect, but I think it has some merit...you just have to take it for what it is.  A pretty badly sampled portion of the gaming population.  It's basically better than just randomly guessing about things, but you can't really draw any conclusions from just a bit of data in it because of its imperfections.

Still, I think that XFire does tend to reflect LARGE gaming trends, it's just not very useful for minor trends because of its issues.

 To show a trend over a long period of time...yeah I agree. In the instance he linked to and this topic?  Not really worth anything except amusing me while I'm stuck at work.
