I guess what I'd like to know is why does superdatas numbers for nc soft games differ from nc soft's own yearly earnings reports. The reports that they are required to disclose to their shareholders and are open to the public. You'd think since superdata claims they get their data directly from the devs/producers, then they would basically be the exact same numbers. Also since square enix also produces earnings reports to their shareholders, why are they not on the list even though games like dragon warrior online is bringing in more revenue than the numbers superdata is giving for rift. I can make an educated guess as to why in both cases.

And I suppose I should state for the record yet again that I have no beef with the games on superdatas list. In fact, of the games I have played on their list, I really enjoyed and hope they keep doing a great job.

My argument really isn't about the games at all or their developers. I'd also like to know why questioning a third party website incites posters to attack the individual.

Just because a few SWG Vets around these forums slander SWToR doesn't make it so.  I never once thought the game would do bad and it hasn't.  It has far exceeded their expectations and about 800K other concurrent players.  Could it had been better? Sure! As it is, it's fine. I played the game always has a healthy community thus in turn I used logic. Lots of players running around at higher levels means retention is good and money is flowing in. Win win for both sides, lose for SWG Vets hoping for a clone.

The Repopulation will be my next perm home. I have touched it and I love it.

The thing you have to take into account is the wording, first, they claim to receive information/data from games publishers although they don't really specify which ones, but go on to say that they 'work with' a few of the big named Developers/Publishers, which infers that they are the ones providing them with data without actually saying so, i have no doubt a lot of it is clever marketing, but there is very little evidence to suggest that any of the figures released about this or other games is in any way accurate or the result of 'insider' information received from the games publishers themselves, its probably a good idea to treat 'superdata' as just forum posters making 'guesstimates' unless they can link in a few facts from official sources to back up their claims.

Sorry, was too tempting. ;)

The game "was" fun, F2P isn't. Too many aholes about it now. :(

No trials. No tricks. No traps. No EU-RP server. NO THANKS!

Rift always gets lauded for its great F2P system, while SWTOR's is outright despised.

Are you really that surprised that a lot of people are playing Rift without giving the developers anything in return? It's the reason we generally can't have nice things for free like that, and instead wind up with so many F2P's that strong arm everyone into paying or putting up with extreme limitations.

Regarding FFXIV ARR, it is registered accounts not subscriptions but you people are weird.  All these games are doing well, that's why they are still up and running.  Whey the hell do you care so much?  Just play the game you enjoy and let others enjoy what they enjoy.  So much nonsense for no freaking reason at all.

Best comment I read all day !!

I've never understood the need to trash games I don't play.There are many fans of Old MMOs that were forced to shut down who would pay a lot of money just to log in to their characters one more time. Just play what you like and enjoy the ride.

Yeah I agree seriously, SWTOR Has a terrible free to play system, other than SoE's before they relaxed restrictions and finally opened up all class/races and the ability to equip legendary/fabled equipment without having to buy unlockers. 

Tera/Aion/Rift all have awesome systems, but Rift gets you to buy souls and a lot of things, Tera has very awesome cosmetics to buy in the market and they all have perks for subscribers... 

Lord of the Rings Online has the best free to play system of any game, and unfortunately that just means it has to be below SWToR due to that. Yet, it is still going strong even being as friendly for the poorer among us, and not forcing people to quit or pay a subscription to continue playing like SWToR nearly does... 

So, Way to go Lord of the Rings Online, Tera, Aion and Rift!! ~ 

Rift can easily encourage more subscriptions by adding more perks, but the game is still awesome... They recently added 4 new souls to buy, and they could just put in a lot more cosmetics like SoE kept doing with their marketplace.

This doesn't surprise me.  SWTOR has a solid core of a game that keeps bringing you back for more.  They do need an open world expansion for people to settle on and populate, a la SWG, as well as more classes, including some non-combat classes.

     Keyword being: Subscription based games..  Those that are B2P or F2P are excluded from the list..  I'm sure SWTOR isn't the 4th biggest "game" in the world.. LOL

They only have 17 servers in total, though. Which is only about half what LOTRO and Rift have.

Currently playing: Divinity: Original Sin, FTL, Hearthstone and Skyrim.
Eagerly anticipating: Camelot Unchained, Elite: Dangerous, Legend of Grimrock 2 and Star Citizen.

For the same reason it was rushed,their sole intention was to cash in on the ip and not the game.If this game carried any other name it probably would be near dead by now.

It plays as good as a f2p could be until about 2o then no matter what class or how many times i tried the game i always wanted to quit after level 20.There is nothing of depth anywhere in the game,it is exactly like most modern games,very average at everything great at nothing.GW2,Rift,SWTOR all fall under this category.

Even Wow and EQ2 both very weak linear questing games,at least do linear questing great and EQ2 does housing great,as i said way too much mediocrity in games now.

I think it is extremely rare we will ever see a great all around quality mmorpg because the genre takes too much time and effort and cost to do it right.Then we have the sci fi /space games which take even more effort,so definitely never going to see a triple A sci-fi/ space game.

If i had a choice i would love to see a grandest of SCi-fi/space because it would involve several planets so like having 3/4/5 +++ Fantasy games all rolled into one,but no way is any dev going to do that properly.

The best i could hope for is that some dev can find a way to automate/generate content and worlds so we have an almost never-ending supply of content to explore.I find it sad that Eve is being supported when it is not even remotely close to being a triple A product but then again neither are MOBA's,they are just popular but lazy game development.

SWTOR was a nice core start to making a game but is still miles away from being the product it should be which is EPIC ,doing the IP name justice.

You know, one day I will read one of these posts that is reporting some actual information.  Not something that is a year(or more) out of date and made up by a comapny that has no actual relevant data,  but you like the sound of it therefore it is real. 

 

The fact that all available information contradicts those numbers(including what little has been released by ea) really shouldn't bother you huh?

Hmm all the facts contradict that SWTOR is healthy?  Hmm well why dont you just go right ahead and post those updated links that shows all this information you have that contradicts that SWTOR is healthy...I am sure we will all wait patiently while you search for those links...

Oh yeah, and haha all those websites that report on the SuperData numbers. They all must be suckers eh? To report on false data like that? xD

Gotta love all those market experts that apparently are so well informed that they can handwave away any numbers that don't suit their particular vision.

Alright, back to playing that "dying" MMO!

I know right?!?!  You would think going on FOUR YEARS people would move on with their lives, give up on bashing a video game they dont play, and accept that SWTOR is not dead, is not dying and is doing just fine.  

 

I just got out of a DP run, right before that was doing the Rakgoul event that was packed i believe 4 or 5 instances, ran some HM FP with a wait time of about 3 min, and if i wasnt going to hockey there were people looking for other OPS runs.  Sounds like a dying game to me lol...

 

But I cant wait to see the factual information they are going to bring...this should be good...or we will just be waiting forever because they are talking out of their A$$es and stuck in 2011!!  

Yeah, I have no problem doing any activities that I want to do, whether it's running an Op, HM FP or some warzone PvP (can't speak for the ranked WZ since I've barely touched them). And I'm a DPS that PuGs most of the time. So it's not like I'm cruising by on the benefit of being a tank (which are notorious for easy grouping in 90% of the MMO's out there, since people don't play them much and you usually need one for group content).

The event's indeed packed, and even in the wee morning hours there's a ton of people in those tunnels.

When there's that many people online every day it's not hard to believe those numbers. But of course the armchair analysts that don't even play the game would know better, right?
