Two weeks after the CEO's "interview" and "growth" statement, RS3 reaches its lowest average concurrent playercount of all time.

The average gamer doesn't play online games 8 hours a day. They also don't play runescape. And why would they, with rampant TH and content droughts for 3 months?

Keep showing the same numbers from the same unofficial site not related to Jagex doesn't show the fact that Jagex CEO said RS3 is still growing.

In fact, real world statistics from various data research firms related to the gaming industry suggested players on the average are only spending less than 1 hour a day playing games nowadays. For instance,

https://www.limelight.com/resources/white-paper/state-of-online-gaming-2018/#spend

https://www.statista.com/statistics/789835/average-daily-time-playing-games-us-by-age/

Suppose there are 2 games A and B. Game A has 600k players who only play 1 hour a day, slightly higher then an average gamer does and Game B has 150k players who play 8 hours a day. What does it mean?

Well, on an average day, we will see Game A with an average of 25k players online while Game B will see a 50k player average.

Which game has the bigger active population? Of course, Game A has 4 times the actual population of Game B although some unofficial tools from an unofficial source will show Game B has twice as many "concurrent players" than Game A. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Suppose there are 2 games, A and B. Game A has 480k players who play 1 hour a day.
Game B has 900k players who play 2 hours a day.

Well, on an average day, we will see Game A with an average of 20k players online, while Game B will see a 75k average. Which game has the bigger active population? Of course, Game B has over twice as many times the population of Game A, despite Game B playing for longer each day, and also in spite of the delusional cries of Game A's sycophants. ;)

Thank you very much x 9000!!! You just completely absolutely entirely totally 100% destroyed and discredited the accuracy of any claim of any "concurrent player" numbers not from an official Jagex source as the actual total population of Jagex. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Hey look, taken directly from the homepage. I'll let you figure it out on your own. I even did the scary math for ya!


Stop lying to yourself. You know very well from your last post that the "supposition" of how many hours your so called "concurrent players" in Game B can mean totally different things for the actual population of Game B.

To further your argument, please show how many hours do these OSRS players play on the average in an average day first. And don't forget to show the source. Don't just tell us it was "2 hours". It can be 8 hours, 24 hours, or if you really insist... 1 hour. But regardless, without any extra information, your argument is totally, absolutely, completely, 100% discredited, shattered and destroyed already. :D:D:D:D:D:D

We're not dealing with suppositions, which you started with. We're dealing with facts. The fact is, OSRS is growing, and RS3 is stagnating, as numbers on the official Jagex homepage clearly state, and as the interview with the CEO clearly shows where the growth is coming from. There's no indication that playtimes between OSRS and RS3 are any different, so any claims that they are different require the burden of proof. The average player doesn't play runescape, so to call upon some arbitrary poll from some no-name website claiming players average 1 hour a day is irrelevant.

So until you provide some sort of proof that OSRS players play longer than RS3, it seems we'll just have to come to the conclusion that players of both games play approximately the same amount of time, lending credence to the clear truth that OSRS is simply more popular. After all, shouldn't RS3 be filled with people working long hours for their runepass?

Miu, you have shown no facts. That's are not Jagex facts. They are not Jagex official numbers.

If you insist, I will go through Jagex again to examine all the real facts.

Just tell us which of what you said are official Jagex "facts" and I will go through the Jagex and Fukong Interactive route, or just shut up and stop calling hypothetical things and suppositions FACTS.

The facts in question can be found at the top of any runescape.com webpage. Hope this clears things up for you!


Yes, the fact and only fact that is shown on the top of any runescape.com webpage is just the current number of Jagex playes, not their total population. That we all know and has been clarified by Jmod Rowley.
