150% of BDO players are having fun

141 posts in this topic

Posted

Just thought I'd throw a few statistics at you all: -

  • 4.28 million people are playing this game right now
  • 117% of these players are logging in every day
  • 125% are purchasing items from the cash shop
  • 0.000004% of players are AFK fishing
  • 99% of players are at level 5

These figures seem off to you at all? Well that's because, like quite a few of forum posts, they are not based on fact and I merely sued to back up the poster's point and sway people towards their argument. What are the figures we do know however?

400,000 PRE-ORDERED the game and purchased it in the first month, this number could be higher but that is the bare minimum of players who have bought this game.

120,000 are on-line at peak times whilst 100,000 is the active number of players per day. These numbers may not mach MOBA games or WoW, but compared to games on Steam this would place BDO in third place.

More people are purchasing items from the cash shop and BDO has a higher pay ratio than not only other B2P games but also F2P games which generally have higher cash shop purchases.

Less than 15% of the game's total population actually use then forum. At the time of typing this there were 7,922 people on-line on the forum, this represents 7.9% of the active population but I've also had to factor in people who may be showing as invisible, people not logged in and not on-line right now. What it does show however is that the forum population is not the voice of the majority of this game.

************

So why make this thread? A lot of the QQ threads use the words "we" or "the majority", or point at the fact that their "friends" or "guild-mates" agree with them. You're not the voice of the majority, you're not going to affect in this game by threatening to leave and you're not a large proportion of the community. By all means QQ, whine all day long; but you do not represent this game. The numbers do and they're against you. Want to QQ? Use facts to back you up otherwise you're just throwing a tantrum. 

Thanks for playing. :)

Seems accurate since I can't answer the survey after receiving an answer to my ticket because ... the ticket is closed (the irony), so I guess you can add: 100% of people who submitted a ticket aren't unsatisfied by custormer service.

opening day twitch viewers = should i buy the game? What is it!?!

 

Atm twitch viewers = most bought the game and are too busy playing it to watch someone else play it.

 

When it drop to 50 = those few holding out finally bought it or decided against it for whatever reason. = more people playing.

 

You're welcome.

75% of what you say isn't even 50% as funny as you think 95% of us think it is.

The statistics look good for a non-AAA, non-American made MMO.  Really it does look pretty good for a Korean made MMO.  I myself have spent a lot of money & time in this game and am having a great time.  However it does not give the developers nor publisher the rights to have bad customer service (tickets still take to long to answer), bad communication, nickel & dime us on dyes and character bound items that should be family bound, and not fix issues that need fixed such as server stability, desync, and PvP class balance issues.

If they get their act together, this game could be so much better and keep so many more players playing.

Ah yes, I forgot that it is only desperate people that use statistics to back up their statements. Real people don't use any figures our sources to back up their outrageous claims. 

got anything more recent?

My time-machine is in the shop sadly, otherwise I'd have gone 1-2 months ahead and found new statistics.

A lot of people can't use their credit cards and they had to deal with chargebacks lately but they're doing 200% more money.   -Cringe 2016

Every single time I've spent money at the Cash shop (5 times now) my Credit Card company has sent me an email with the transaction and 4 other random ones asking me if the purchases were me or not. The Fraud in the Daum Cash shop must have been rampant. I've never seen anything like that before.

Did I make a blanket statement about using statistics to back up an argument? No, I made a statement about how you inject those exact same numbers into every post you can. Seriously, how many times have you posted those statistics in the past month?

I am not trying to imply they are "outdated", just that it is "old news" in the sense that several topics have been made to highlight these statistics already.

To me, every single bit of your OP reeks of desperation. Do you have anything new to say or not?
