Hi, after my main account has been banned because I was using auto keyboard/mouse micro for leveling my Homoculus. Pretty regret to do it. It was two years ago.

 

I am considering come back for casual fun because this is my childhood memory.

 

========================================================================

 

Would like to drop a stupid question here for everyone discuss.

 

How many real players (not bots) do you think there are in game.

 

my guess : 200 ?

I think 400 max active players during double exp or double drop events. The rest are vend slaves or just alts selling gears in Eden. Slow day prbably 200ish players.

Hmm, maybe your right. But I would consider 60% would be bots or vendors and rest of 40% consisted of multiple characters who are own by same person XD, I used to have 3 - 4 charactor online at the same time...

 

also salute to you.

 

your the legend, you never abandon this game. your the representative of loyalty... even Slyk is not upload any youtube videos anymore, not sure if he is still playing.

I'm Warportal's shadow. I will only be gone when the body is gone. I got another video almost ready but will just wait couple weeks before I upload. I dont want upload videos too frequently then get quiet because I run out of ideas hahaha

 

Also, if you want to start over, I think now is a good time. We've been getting new players from Thailand who want to come try iRO.

Players from first world countries can easily open 7~10 alts at the same time considering availability of better computers and connection hence a "seemingly" high population on chaos (500%? More than thor)
.....


First world third world doesnt matter, just salty for my potato netbook that cant open 2 clients at the same time :v

and im poring ? lol ...

 

well i usually have another 4 alts if im active . if im lazy only have 2 or 3 for vending ...

well its hard to tell you the actual number of active players (they mostly busy running instance)

so dont expect they will sit down and chat with you ....

 

im not sure about pt cos i been mellow out ever since the exp is gone ...

pfff, idk if they care their playerbase or not. If they want old player back, at least compensate something for returning players like other company do. Nowadays the economics in IRO is so -_-. everything is so expensive.

The below are all mostly educated guesses since we have no hard data except for vends.

 

A. Vends

on ragi.al there's 45 pages of shops (both buy and sell included). With 16 shops per page, its give or take 720 shops in total. We add about maybe 10-20 shops in random areas that ragial doesn't capture. That's about 740.

 

B. Eden Chats

In Eden, we can estimate that there's up to 100 chat vendors. Probably less, but let's put a 100 here as a rough estimate.

 

C. Bots

Now, how many bots do you think there are? Just ragial bots alone i think there's at least 20 if its 2 bots per area that the bots run about in. Since bots don't really do leveling anymore (gramps is 10000x faster), the other bots should generally be farming crap like straws etc, but we know its also not that profitable. At most let's put a random number of 200 farming bots in total (i doubt there's this many actually). This puts us at around 220-250bots in total.

 

With our current online status at 2355, that leaves us with around 1265 accounts online that's being played by real people. The last question would be how many accounts are being played actively per user on average?

 

There's really no hard answer to this again, but since we've already excluding bots, eden chats, and vendors, i find it hard to believe its anything more than 2 accounts being played at one time per person on average. In fact, most players probably only play one account at a go. If we say that for every 1 user playing only 1 account, there's another playing 2 at one go, it gives us a 1.5 average. That would give us a total number of maybe 844 real users online currently.

 

 

While this exact number probably means nothing, we can easily make an approximation that having around 1000 users online at one go isn't far off if it isnt every other guy playing 2 accounts at once, but it usually won't be much lesser than 700-800 since i myself don't believe that there's more than 50% of these type of players (after discount A, B,C), as it is just counterproductive usually. It also in the end depends on how many bots you think there are farming crap stuff.
