Lord DJMOODY, 

total number of users is usual reference for each company. I believe that Plarium is telling a truth although everything could be better.

Instead of hating everything I prefer to suggest improvements cause that's the way for making this game better.

Well, its like, you have a company that make cars, and they go " we made millions of cars" but it doesnt reflect the state of business or actual sales last quarter, or year.


How many that left an user account with Plarium games over the past x years, is of little to no interest. How many that actual here now playing the games is.

Its regardless of what people suggest the fact is palariums greed has been the demise and downfall of this game Which still continues everyday

How many members have mentioned the fact the game is so unbalanced its clearly becoming a wasteland of empty castles

Have palarium tried to improve it .? not at all .have they bothered to interact / listen to feedback ,to what is actually happening in the game .?

No ..

Its a fantasy if u  believe Palarium would even bother to implement anything unless there is a possibility they can make  money from it.

It is  clear for 90% who play ..that this game is clearly in a serious  demise .As palarium have no plans or intentions, on improving the game play as such for the benefit of general players ..just to reap as much money as possible before it dies.

I would be surprised if this game still exist,s in 12 months time.

They do have their own advertisements all over the place though. "come join millions of other players" etc... sounds better than come join a fraction of that.

It's a natural thing for all games. There are some players that play from the start till the end of the game. But for many players each game is a certain period in life. Games change, tastes change, interests change, people that you play with change, etc. 

P.S. I don't know how many daily players we have. This information is confidential.

By looking at the tournaments and such - The guess of 2000 active players is in the ball park .

That's very far from reality We have much more active players.

i dont think so.  average 100 members per league, 20-30 inactives per league.     and a player isnt considered active til they are level 60+  anything lower is just playing farmville.



2000-3000 sounds about right.

I think the biggest bulk they make from people spending is, players that register get hooked on the game, spend cash to try get ahead, then find out they just wasted a lot of cash for no reason and then quit playing. I call that swing-door players.

Right now, around 20 hours into pvp tournament, with 1 point I am 1442nd. I think it speaks volumes about state of this game.

looking over the last year in this game the players leaveing is running at 30%

  i would say no more than 6500 players on here full time 

you only have to look at all the dead castles to see this game is dieing fast 

12 months from now i think it will be gone 

i only play to be on here with friends as soon as that changes im off

 i  dont coin any more as the game is so unbalanced

I think you hit the nail on the head.   There isnt any place for a  low to mid coiner. Either you drop big bucks, or you dont compete.

How many leagues got becons? How many leagues got more than 1 becon. How many leagues got a fortress at x level, mebers that havent logged in, in weeks and so on ? Should be all metrics Plarium sitting on right?


Number of leagues doesnt really matter or mean much. Active server population would say a lot of the state of the game, but that is a number being tucked away as a secret. You could think that would just mean the state og the game is not that very good. Other mmos and games out there have no problem reveal such numbers, I don't understand what the big deal is tbh. level. How many leagues got majority of their members logging in daily. How many leagues dragging along members that havent logged on in a long time?


When things start to slide, the right approach would be to start look at what is going wrong, and then try turn things around. Slap the remaining players in the face with more "spend" items, not really the solution. We the players is in no position to fix such. You wont get players to start spread the word about come play this great game, when they feel its not. Many of those that been playing for a long time now see the writing on the wall. We see it from players stopping loggin in, less activity  in leagues and so on. 


The sad truth is, quite a lot of us just stick around because we invested to much time and effort into it already and still got some friends left in the game. Even that will just last for so long.

i think that is more in favor or my argument than yours.   you do have more than 30 leagues. but most of them are dead just like all the dead castles.

You're right. Many Leagues are deat, and many Castles are abandoned. But not all of them. 

Anyway, I don't think we can persuade each other, because 

a) you don't know how many active players we have,

b) I don't know either.  Considering the amount of VIP players we have I can tell you that we have more than 2-3k active, but still I can't share any numbers.

I rather want to know what the criteria is to be a vip member is. and how they get selected. on another note, I rather be a nobody than a "very important person". But alwayus curious what these players bring to the game that the rest of us doesn't,
