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:
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.
