    Entropia Universe Active Player Base

    Ever wondered what the actual number for the active player base is in EU? MA has always considered this number a "corporate secrete":

    I am unable to provide information about or discuss certain figures that are considered corporate secrets (Kim Calypso).


    well I've figured out a good way to get that number. and the results:

    Results: There are about 2000 active players playing Entropia universe

    Getting the answer was quite simple. I conducted a simple poll regarding the average number of items each player has on calypso auction:

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...ems-on-auction

    With a simple spread sheet we can find the average number of items players have on planet calypso auction:





    So the average players has 8.35 items on planet calypso auction. At the time of writing this the ingame auction had approximately this many pages:

    Planet Calypso Auction ~ 1000 Pages
    Planet Arkadia Auction ~150 Pages
    Planet Rocktropia Auction ~ 40 Pages
    Planet Cyrenet Auctionb ~ 20 Pages
    FOMA/Hell/ NI/ CP Auctions (SUM) ~ 50 pages

    That sums up to about 1260 pages of auction. (Sincemost players using other auctions also have items on planet calypso auction, we will be over estimating the active player base at the end). Each page on the auction has 15 items:

    1260(Pages)*15(Items) = 18900 Items on auction
    18900Items/ 8.35 (Item per active player) = 2263 Active Players.

    There fore we can see that the number of active players playing Entropia universe is about 2263


    Give me your thoughts on this.

    At one week I can have 20 items on auction and at another I can have none.


    Way to low prediction if you ask me. Best way in my opinion is to take from EU Life the number of ppl that glob (3653 this month just for hunting) and maybe multiplie that for two, because of traders/sweaters/cld invest./space pilots/etc that dont global.

    I would risk to say that more or less there is +/- 20k users loging in per month.



    And 2k play you argue. Is that daily? Per hour? ?!

    Your assumptions are not accurate if you ask me, because you can not predict how much average auctions per avatar there is. Even if your pool shows some so called average number.

    However the tool which tell us how many active players there is already exist and it is darn close. It is called EntropiaLife. If there is an active player should have at least 1 global per year.

    Or you can look at EntropiaLife were you can see the number of registered player globals. Around 3000 active has been the estimated playerbase for sometime. This game is a niche market. More so only about 100-200 players ATH or make the HOF charts on a regular basis.

    I bet that you are not even in top 2000 on the Heloween event 2013.

    Results: There are a lot more than 2000 active players playing Entropia universe

    There are probably more than 2000 players with more skills and play time then me. And I'm playing every day.

    2000 are probably the people that play more than 4 hours a day and deposited more than 100k PEDs

    Could you at least back your statement up with proof? Bjorn sounds the most right to me :/

    3000 players through out the entire world i would call that a secret society not a niche market.

    Pitiful effort on Mindarks part, in all the years its been around this is it.
