Two Years of ZDaemon TNS Stats!

Yes, the Doom community may be slowly shrinking, but the online community remains strong and steady. Here is a chart of previous TNS sessions. Thanks to keyboard_doomer for posting the statistics. The record was last May when Ancient Aliens came out. Nearly every gaming site covered the incredible wad. As long as new wad launches continue, we'll be playing Doom forever.

 

Doom will never die. Only the players will!

Cool graph!

Since the y axis isn't labelled, I guess the top line is the number of individual nicks that connect to the server during a session, the bottom line is the peak population of a session.

 

And yes, 192 people (approx) played the first half of Ancient Aliens, though this isn't our all-time record. We played Coffee Break on New Year 2015-6, just before stats were posted to forums, and it lasted for 33 hours, over which time 227 different nicknames were seen on the server.

That's correct. 

 

Max = Peak Server Population

Overall = Total Unique Players

Thanks for doing the graph.

Info from all session from which we have logs is available in a spreadsheet here.

 

As you can see from the graph, the total number of players that join during a session varies wildly and this is because the number heavily depends (among else) on the length of the session which in turn depends heavily on various hardly predictable factors. This makes it a pretty misleading statistical indicator for... about anything if you don't divide it by the length of the session but on the other hand, I think the peak population is a decent indicator, at least most of the time.

Nice.

 

Multiplayer Doom has plateaued, but it's definitely not shrinking. Going into 2018, this is exciting news for the community. We are at a steady state.
