Half life 3 confirmed !

 

HL = High Level (and hells, the currency in disgaea series)


Well arent all MMOs like that? xD

Future updates increase level caps, unlock more dungeons, items, upgrades, etc.


I'm not a big MMO player, but from what I know, the real stuff starts there. Hardcore version of the dungeons, 40 people raids, stuffing, levelling new characters, HL PVP, etc.

Updates are there to relaunch the interest in one game, if people come back frequently on one game they are most likely to spend more money in it and buy the sequels.

So they need hardcore paying players to stay, and people not paying in game content to go away. I don't really know how they achieve that.

On the other side, they need people to be satisfied enough in GW2 to buy GW3 too.

Could top the orginal's 4 million

But dam only 460,000 concurrent users

*Remembers when WoW had +12 million subscribers, still has 7.7 today*

Concurrent users mean people playing the game at the same point in time. It's not the same as amount of subscribers.

Yes, but in GW2's case, hardly anyone plays anymore.

Since subsribers are paying monthly, I would think they are concurrent, why would you be paying and not playing?

Concurrent is the amount of players playing the game as we speak right now. Like there were 1 million people playing WoW at the same in China just after the recent expansion came out.

So honestly it doesn't mean much lol

Guild Wars II doesn't have a subsciption fee and so they can't really give us that number.

Not every subscriber plays the game at the same time. I know many people despite paying for WoW, hadn't touched it in months.

Seems dumb to me, but I'm not doubting you, tho I don't think its in the millions.

This was the case with dozens of people I knew after Cataclysm came out. They would go a while without logging in, mostly only playing events and when the odd drive got them. It was always weird to me.

Yeah get these on forums alot.  Cata was a medicore expansion, Pandria is vastly better (not WotLK level but still good) but for some reason more people are leaving.

Anyhow, a large majority that bitch on the forums talking about unsubsribing / quitting are STILL subscribed.  My logic can't wrap my head around it.
