Lately it's been going over 14K on NA in the evenings fairly often.  I'm generally seeing more on than I saw two years ago at this time.  

Of course, I'm sure the doomsayers will be along with their carefully cherry-picked stats to yell 'DOOM! GLOOM!'.  I'll leave that to them.

It's a niche game, and always has been.

More than enough to play whenever you want. Low tier matchmaking can be slow at early morning hours.

Anywhere from 8000 to 15,000 players is normal depending on day and time.

Don't worry.. it's not like your usual Steam early access title. :)

You presented no stats at all.....just your uninformed opinion....:Smile_teethhappy:

Actual data? Actual data says slightly better than two years ago, not better than last year.

The peaks that have shown up since Feb 2018 are the dates CB starts, and each one is worse than the last.

Population used to be shown in the port UI.

That was removed this year I think, about the time of 0.8.0?

What a odd coincidence.

Kind of like the one where Enterprise was removed from sale two weeks before the 30% coupon was released.

It's in the menu UI now. Just hit ESC, it still shows the online pop.

Just curious as to how many players are on, usually, as I have been away for at least 3 years.  Thanks

HOTA_CHATON, the above 8-14k depending on time of day is fairly correct. The chart in a spoiler appears to be from a website that apparently only counts random games. I would take it with a grain of salt.

 

Earlier this year, there was a 60 day period where anyone that got a point in any battle mode, was put on a Hall of Fame list where the top 50% of point earners got prizes. The server averaged well over 38,000 unique users a day during that period around April. Since not everyone plays every day, the average number of unique users per month is somewhere above that 38k per day.

I remember it fluctuating from high 38 to low 39 and let me change it to the low number in case I remembered wrong.

Thanks.  Since I am going to give this game a serious try, I was curious as to whether there is a decently sized crowd now or had it thinned way down as planes did.  I know Tanks had gone down quite a bit but it seems to be on the up swing again.  Thanks a lot for all the replies.

It’s a pop-up? Or comes up with the settings/audio/controls screen?

You are welcome. Do check the guide section at the top of the forum for lots of tips and info on how to play. Most everyone here is happy to help as well.

 When you hit ESC, it is in the upper left of the screen.
