Utopia Player/age Data

Hi blog, long time no see

I’ve been almost busy (not really) despite the very real pressure to deliver a proper thesis. At any rate, I’ve done some minor quantitative data gathering (something not common in my research field) and what I came up with so far is a breakdown of age length and player count per Utopian age (three months of gameplay) since the start of the game:

Age 1 – ? provinces – Nov ~3rd 1998 – Jan 10th 1999
Age 2 – ? provinces – Jan 12th 1999 – Mar 20th 1999
Age 3 – 39,993 provinces (WoU) – Mar 22nd 1999 – May 31st 1999
Age 4 – 35,238 provinces (WoU) – Jun 2nd 1999 – Aug 15th 1999
Age 5 – 45,604 provinces (WoU) – Aug 17th 1999 – Oct 30th 1999
Age 6 – 47,294 provinces (WoU) – Nov 1st 1999 – Jan 31st 2000
Age 7 – ? provinces – Feb 2nd 2000 – May 7th 2000

Age 12 – 78,502 provinces (WoU+BF) – Apr 17th 2001 – Jul 23rd 2001
Age 13 – 86,229 provinces (WoU+BF) – Jul 25th 2001 – Oct 27th 2001
Age 14 – 83,343 provinces(WoU+BF) – Oct 29th 2001 – Jan 21st 2002
Age 15 – 91,113 provinces (WoL+BF) – Jan 23rd 2002 – Apr 28th 2002

Age 21 – 79,872 provinces (WoL+BF) – Jun 30th 2003 – Sep 6th 2003
Age 22 – 73,503 provinces (WoL+BF) – Sep 8th 2003 – Dec 15th 2003
Age 23 – 70,359 provinces (WoL+BF) – Dec 17th 2003 – Mar 21st 2004
Age 24 – 62,730 provinces (WoL+BF) – Mar 23rd 2004 – Jun 19th 2004
Age 25 – 54,787 provinces (WoL+BF) – Jun 21st 2004 – Sep 26th 2004

Age 31 – 33,081 provinces (WoL) – Jan 18th 2006 – Apr 24th 2006
Age 32 – 31,872 provinces (WoL) – Apr 26th 2006 – Aug 3rd 2006
Age 33 – 27,980 provinces (WoL) – Aug 5th 2006 – Nov 19th 2006
Age 34 – 26,393 provinces (WoL) – Nov 21st 2006 – Mar 4th 2007
Age 35 – 27,313 provinces (WoL) (retrieved 28-3-2007) – Mar 6th 2007 – ?

I’ve personally been wondering about the impact of graphical MMOGs on the Utopian playerbase. Using MMOGCHART.com I haven’t been able to see a direct correlation between releases of popular MMORPGs (WoW makes no identifyable impact) and playerloss.

Anyway, just showing some results..
