check this: http://steamgraph.net/index.php?action=graph&appid=218230&from=1354593975

 

It's almost EXACTLY the same as the xfire graph. And some people dare to question xfire's validity...

Not just usually, but so consistently that you can bank on it. There's always some guy new to games that spots it for each game and goes all Chicken Little, thougfh.

Check the info for BLOPS 2 and put them together, look nearly identical.

Not defending it though, population seems crap in game most of the time of the day.

The biggest disapoinment of PS2 is each faction goes to a map where they meet the least resistance.
Defending a base is worthless and none ven bothers to do it.

+ hackers live streaming their hacks for hours and hours and hours on end....PS2 is filled with hackers / cheaters
Game has horrible optimazation, in 1 patch i have 60+ fps 1 patch later its 20 fps.

I realy had high hopes for PS2 but they released a bad beta build as a final release and people just doesnt swallow that shit anymore these days.

I only play roughly an hour a day and not everyday and I'm on one of the highest populated server Matherson, I can sense the amount of players is shrinking by the day though I have been seeing new names since the Soltech merge, I've been running with the same players since then. My previous outfit pretty much died and went off to play Chavalry so I left it and joined another and now half those guys are back to playing SWG*cough* which is what I should be doing too, I've been putting off with that game for a couple months now.


Sad that I can't get enough satisfaction to keep me playing for longer than 30-60 minutes anymore, not even the new SimCity which keeps resetting my city or preventing me from logging in, I regret even buying that game and I'm a long time huge SimCity fan... so sad.

BLOPS2 is basically a rehash of the previous BLOPS, not that many CoD fans are fooled by that now, I don't think BLOPS2 has even broken 50K players yet since launch where BLOPS1 cracked 150K peak which passed MW2's 120K peak.

Well its dropped, like most new mmos.

But let's put it in context, its not a swtor style "everyone jump off this sinking ship" drop off.

Because many new mmos suck in the meanwhile, good ones are growing steadily. I dont agree that the dropping numbers have nothing to do with dissatisfaciton of the current game, you see this watching the graph. There is a huge interest in Planetside 2 but the game has just too many issues and missing features, they released a shiny bubble.

as a planetside 2 player i must say that i only go in when new content arrives, then i play for 1-2 weeks and after that i go away again, probably i will stay more time when they add either more continents or the naval combat.

No meta game makes ps2 a dull boy indeed.

On their road map, there is a November update that will connect all the continents in the game and this will improve the meta game. Each continent will have a home continent with Hossin not owned by any faction in the middle and each area connected by a continental lattice with battle islands to fight over before you enter the enemies continent. Even though there is no detailed meta game, I really like planetside 2 and I play it for 3-5 hours at a time in each session.

 

Even though the game is declining, the peak players are usually a little over 6000 each day if you look at the steam stats. Also, PS4 has been getting more pre-orders than Xbox One and Planetside 2 will be a free to play launch title so if it is really popular on PS4 then more will come to the PC version.

For anyone that looks at this and is worried about server population and not being able to find people to play with, don't. I play sometimes all night long and nearly always can find good fights, even during weekdays. During prime time it's pretty much constantly several areas with 48+/48+ battles. Bottom line is that every game goes through these peaks at launch and then the population evens out. Planetside 2 is no different, but the population is very healthy and I see new players every day.

Wow that's a huge necro.

 

As of now the game is doing pretty great. Planetside2 has a way of taking your money while you thank SOE.

I hadn't noticed someone necroed it, but still, it's worth pointing out to anyone new reading the thread that the game is actually very healthy...

The game has stopped its sharp decline this month. Look at steam charts.

 

http://steamcharts.com/app/218230

 

Only down by almost 3%. The game will probably get a lot more popular once it is released free to play on PS4, more people will hear about it and play it on PC. Also the meta game will change this November.

I quited realy early on when i spotted empty base capping over and over and over again.
Add to that the horrible grind for even the most basic shit and you got yourself the most boring shooter of the year.

Thanks but no thanks.
I rather play Battlefield then standing in empty bases.
