That is a big boost

December 31, 2008

I happened to take a look at XFire statistics for played games and noticed that EVE actually had climbed up to me #2 among MMO-type games, pushing Guild Wars down to the 3rd spot. Looking at the details there is a significant boost in number of hours played, from about 10000 hours per day to something between 30000 and 40000 hours from the middle of December.

The number of users playing are still lower than Guild Wars though and people seem to put on average almost 5 hours per day. Is it the winter event or something else? Neither Warhammer Online or Lord of the Rings Online are close to EVEs (or Guild Wars’) numbers when it comes to XFire usage.

    EVE Online sent “click here to fly free for 5 days” e-mails on December 17.

    Ah, that would explain the boost. I did not see any such email, so was that some selective campaign to some former players?

    I got a 5 day invite and I stopped playing in September. Perhaps it was sent to p;yaers who quit recently?

    Perhaps, I guess they might have given up on me. I would not have used the option anyway.
