Not really an intention for an SPG discussion, more of a public gathering/sharing of data to look for trends. I'm sure the numbers can have a multitude of explanations.

Possibly because a few people will be watching the football rather than tanking.

Or having arguments about the "in or out of Europe" thing.

Or just growing up in general.

Maybe people are realising that it is only a game, not a way of life. (pretty far-fetched I know, judging by the general standard of posts in the forum)

Who can tell why the numbers seem to be declining?

There could be many possible factors for reduced numbers of active players, not just from within the game itself.

Plus, while the numbers may concern WG, they've not been taken from far enough back to be indicative of a worrying trend yet

They may rise again when they start sorting out the "problems" the game has (whatever people think they are).

 

Just recently I'm less concerned about the future of the game and am now getting more concerned about the future of where I live ie. Britain.

 

(sorry if this derails your thread and i'm not trying to belittle your observation but I think there are more important things happening in life than a game possibly losing some popularity)

 

Please don't take this as a personal criticism.

I'm ranting because of my current worry about the uncertainty of the future.

 

Ignore me and carry on.

Calm your tits bro, this is only during the span of a few days, the problems you're referring to have been around for a while, plus, people wouldn't just start leaving all of a sudden for those reasons; It's most definitely a combination of Arta TotT + Euro...

Interestingly we saw a jump in active players at the start of the TotT, then a steady decline up until yesterday when there was a new jump. According to a colleague at work there are currently "boring" matches in the football championship.

A quick summary;

 

Number of active players from 31.05.2016 - 23.06.2016 more or less unchanged, but a lot of variation along the way. Likely due to players falling in and out of the "active" period.

Number of tracked players increased from the same period; 40.760

I don't think you should be too concerned about Britain's future. Just look at me I'm PM Cameron and the Bullyton boys have left government, and our new PM actually seems to be intelligent and concerned about the mess the pampered toffs made. Junkers is being an arse with his EU 4th Reich military expansion policy. No doubt he intends to invade Hungary who will give him a right kick in. Scotland seems a bit phah and meh with SNP postering. But they really haven't a clue what they are wishing for when exchanging Parliament rule for Brussels rule.

 

Life for us plebs will remain the same, the last few years was always about the entitled grabbing more and pulling up the ladders and Brexit gave a stop to that. So if you are not in private education and Eton, Oxford, nothing much has changed for your life chances, in fact they may well have improved?

I don't have a calender on me, but are those days where the player count jumps up weekends by any chance?

That is actually an interesting question;

 

02 June = Thursday

14 June = Tuesday

15 June = Wednesday

21 June = Tuesday

30 June = Thursday

 

06 July = Wednesday

12 July = Tuesday

13 July = Wednesday

 

14 September = Wednesday

 

Take into account that I have missed quite a few days, but there seems to be an overwieght of mid-week dates for jumps in actives. Maybe it is related to cut off for the activity period? Only dates with jumps in actives were counted above btw.

EDIT: Jabster pointed me to Wot-News.com and their statistics on active players. I will supply their numbers as well for each update from now on (12.10.2016)

 

There is something going on with the WoT playerbase....the number of active players is suddenly on a steep decline;
