Daum publised exact player count (by accident?)

8 posts in this topic

Daum released a news item called "our first year"

In this they publish "average amount of Silvers in Storage" (42.3M EU, 38.5M NA). They also published "Total Silvers Stored" (11.1T EU, 10.4T NA). Average = Total/Population, so Population = Total/Average, providing 261150 EU and 269013 NA accounts (stored silver is shared between characters).

We can't know if they included inactive accounts or what counts as inactive account, but considering that I was away for 6 months and could log back like nothing happened and that BDO has no subscription to clearly define "active account" while everyone with an account must have purchased the game, it's possible that these numbers are the total players (whoever bought the game) and not those who logged in "recently". 

That's not very high.

Given the legitimacy of the other claims on that page, I would not for even half a second be surprised if those numbers included banned accounts as well.

Considering the fact that the game sold more than one million copies after a few months at its us/eu release, they are obviously putting some restrictions on those numbers.

Now add the EU numbers then add the number from the middle east/asia. Wow numbers will not happen again it is simply an enigma. Im not white knighting i dont like the pvp or enchant system ( waiting for CU) BUT i am sure BDO has a mediocre amount of users many spending hundreds of dollars any given time... meh

You are being pretty dang liberal using months to describe something that happened over a year ago.

The game was literally launched 1 year and a few days ago.... Those numbers are from 11 months ago. So not over a year.
