Bigpoint has surpassed a huge milestone with the 250,000,000th registered user for its stable of games. The press release further states that over 250,000 new players register each and every day. Signature titles at Bigpoint include Battlestar Galactica Online, Drakensang Online, Dark Orbit, and Farmerama.

Over the past decade Bigpoint has radically improved the quality of the online games. Beginning with relatively simple Flash-based titles, Bigpoint has released a number of high-quality games built atop the Unity development platform in the past year. The company is planning a series of new launches in 2012, including new titles that leverage world-class Hollywood intellectual property.

    Yeah, but I'm one of those registered users, tried it, didn't like it so it's really 249,999,999 image

    Multiple accounts will magnify numbers so 250/4 = 75/75 = 1 million unique users , 4 games, and 75 multiple characters over the 4 games, still an awesome achievments though, keep up the good work

    Yea , boosting about registered users is pointless.


    I am registered user on like 15 mmo f2p games and I do NOT play any of it anymore. I also never intend to go back. (got tired of freemium and f2p model).


    Most people I know go rush any f2p that come out and then 99% of them quit it after few hours / few days max.


    Peak concurrent Users  / average monthly   - this is interesting.


    Then Peak Paying concurret users / average monthly - this as well


    Registered users is not.

    Tried Drakensang the other day, and it is actually a pretty good hack and slash to spend some time in... Only problem is that you can not do anything without spending money in the cash store... Way too obvious for me, there is an in-game currency but it is almost useless. 90% of all NPC store items are bought with real life cash.

    O_O 250 million? What the fuck?!

  • TheDarkrayneTheDarkrayne Member EpicPosts: 5,297

    This post is misleading. especially if you only read the title. This is NOT 250m users for Drakensang Online. This is 250m user overall across all their games. And the have 46 of them, including battlefield heroes (which is probably the most popular).


    I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

    In these cases I always say show me the money, and Bigpoint execs can probably bathe in gold coins with the revenue they bring in.
