In my stats I see for average xp per battle I am in a world of suck:

Average Experience per Battle: 310xp, which ranks me in 53,636 place.

But it does raise and intersting question, how many people playing are there?  There must be at least 53,636 because that's my place in the world.  Is there someone who just joined, i.e. has only a few battles and thus a really low place, that can say how many players there are?

Highest I've seen so far is 202,000 and some odd.  And keep in mind, they don't start counting until you hit 100 battles now.

EDIT: just peeked through the members profiles and found someone with 105 matches, better revise that to 224,000

4....

Yep thats it 4 people. Maybe no one. This could all be in you subconsciousness and none of this is truly happening. Hell maybe it's in my subconsciousness and I do nothing but post ignorant crap in forums all day...I'm so confused I need a drink.

Last I heard there were 2 million accounts on all of the servers. Someone did a whole break down a while ago but that was on the European servers which I cannot find.

Eh, I don't think you're too far off the mark. Average in my clan is between 450-650, I'm only at 533 avg/battle and it has me ranked at 10,651. So, %-wise, you're not too far behind me, yet numbers wise, there's 50,000 players between us. It'll probably bump you up a couple thousand in ranking for ever 10 pts. you can add to your average.

You can't delet your account and probably most that do quit wouldn't delet it anyway. The numbers they show are how many accounts they have , including those that don't play anymore and have deleted the game from their computer.

Remember, the beta players had thousands of matches before reset, so no learning curve after and therefore higher average xp.

Players with premium accounts are awarded ... i think its 50% more per battle than a non premium having the same game results.

no I don't think so, there might be that many accounts, but most of them are not playing. a lot beta testers are not playing anymore.
some players might come back, if they get some of their promises done. for the NA server especially the heavies, new game modes and larger maps.
on week days you see 8000-10000 online, on the weekends you might see up to 13.000 players at least logged on. i'm hoping the fanbase will increase
once the american tree has all fixes and the 2nd heavy line is out. still like the game, just getting a little old.

Unfortunately it is a norm in the MMORPG gaming world and pretty much applies to all games that if you don't rope in your fans within the first 30 days then you won't ever get them.

There is no positive word of mouth I have seen for this game, no one has heard of it among the gamers that work with me (a bunch of geek engineers) so I wouldn't get my hopes up for any increase.

With SWOTR and other games around the corner, CoH going FTP, EQII going FTP, Lineage II going FTP, etc, why would someone want to play a FPS masquerading as a MMORPG? Ain't gonna happen.

^This...there are a couple of threads that have analyzed the player stats and both arrived at around 225,000 active players.
