Nice to see the servers thriving and many former players returning as well as lots of new players trying the game out
Lemme see, when STO went F2P it jumped in population, so did Aion and City of Heroes but they all dwindled down in a few months.
So don't jump to conclusions, especially with this trashy F2P thing SWTOR has.
Xfire users themselves must have gone up, what with the popularity of the threads around here that love to quote it .
The Deep Web is sca-ry.
Give it a few weeks, and itll be back where it started.
And, DONT post hours played as that means squat, post actual players login.
Oh and yes, this thread is silly, wonder where old one is, would be hilarious to comapre lol
F2P doesnt take away from the fact why the game failed to begin with.
Most of the other paid games that went F2P were actualy pretty decent (lotro, ddo, aion, and others).
Originally posted by itsbigmike only gonna last until the players hit all the f2p caps/restrictions, then they'll see it for the BS it is
Thats only your point of view.
almost all games that go f2p have population increase. It is normal.
Question is what will happen after few months. Will they be able to still hold that much players or will it decrease like it frequently happens?
Last weekend SWTOR had about 12k hours played/day on XFire.
The weekend before that SWTOR had about 5k hours played per day on XFire.
As ImperialSun dictated that SWTOR player numbers quadrupled since F2P launch that must be true. That allows us to make a simple calculation that the playtime per SWTOR player decreased by 40% since SWTOR FP2 launch. That was a quick drop.
Lies, damned lies, and statistics.

So the game is up to about 100,000 players now. Nice.
In a world of sharp knives, you would be a spoon.

Forum readers make up a tiny percent of the MMO gamer population. Most gamers never see or hear about what happens here.
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre
Must really piss you guys off that there is anything positive to highlight.
And for all of the times the usual suspects use x-fire as "definitive" proof of SWTORs failure...
Thats a two way street...
Enjoy your hating...I'm off to have fun ig

Exactly. Despite what people may think after hanging out on this forum, many people are actually playing and enjoying SWTOR. These forums are in no way representative of the actual health of the game.
Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!
Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!
Originally posted by azzamasin Sorry Dfire can not and should not ever be used to gauge any sort of population metrics. Hardly any one uses it and definetly no one I know.
At some point everybody agreed that xfire numbers are not about population but about trends, For now it's up. I hope it will stay that way

No forums are ever representative of the actual health of a game. Just like most healthy people don't go to WEBMD, most people simply enjoying the game don't visit the forums. And if you're anything like me, going to WEBMD when you thought you were perfectly healthy leaves you suddenly second-guessing yourself.... Hence I don't visit forums for games I'm enjoying.
That said, SWTOR was soooo bad. Hah.
It displays trends though right?
And if the trend on x-fire is up so sharply, given that hardly anyone uses it...I wonder what the trend is like accross the broader player base?
Besides, according to the GW2 boards x-fire is definitive...or is that definitive as long as it shows what they want it to lol
