Glad somebody else also explained that 30,000 refers to hours played rather than player numbers . . .

although I did explain on page 2 . . .

If WoW has 70k players in Korea, so would has 9,8 milion players in the world.

If Archeage has 30k players in Korea, would has 4,2 milion worldwide.

 

That's if you are willing to believe that 392 million people worldwide plays LoL...

As said, is a very very rough calculation. LoL in Korea is disproportionately popular, almost a "national sport", being televised with millions of viewers.

Don't forget ppl play not only from internet cafe, and archeage is pretty solid in Japan. So it not sinking yet. Determination time would be release in China.

Players run bots in LoL and it is free to play and other players have multiple accounts. Trying to actually gauge the number of players who play that game is impossible.

They will get alot from russian market. Game is huge hit here with thousands of very vocal fans. The most anticipated MMORPG in Russia for sure. Publisher did a great job with translation and payment model, so it can only succeed here

internet café play has been dropping in Korea since the new laws took effect. Cafés no longer allow people to binge play since a café can now be shut down (with the owner going to prison) if anyone binge plays and ends up dying, which happens a little too often there.

It's already been known it isn't doing very well in Korea - fanbois can try to spin it how they want but it's just reality.  Maybe it will do better here, who knows, people are aching for something different and original.  I think Black Desert is going to be the main game to watch from overseas but ArcheAge could still do well here.

Actually i find the list is quite informative. If it was like, say, number 5, then maybe i would want to know what the first 4 games are, but its number 20, and the population playing it is 0.45%, does it really matter what the other 19 games are?

How can it be informative without the context of these numbers?

The fact that half of those games I have never heard of and others are MOBA and non MMORPGs I can't really take this list that serious....

So even games like Tera are more popular than ArcheAge.

There are several quotes by Jake Song saying he designed the game with a Western audience in mind. Combine that with some bad design changes ( now recognized and being fixed ) and its little wonder why its doing poorly in S. Korea.

Given that, I cant see how this will have a lot of bearing on how well it does in the States.
