Steam numbers: 196, 443

DCUO has been on and off Steam's Top 100 Active numbers recently, but I predict it will permanently stay off the list in the not-so-distant future. This game will never recover.

A desperate revamp is probably incoming. It would be hard to make this game any worse than it is now, but then again, we are talking about $OE. :evil:

***I just took another peak at the Steam numbers....DCUO fell off again.***

Falling off again means it has under 199 people playing it right now. Just to give you an idea of games beating it atm:

233 537 RACE 07
233 352 X3: Terran Conflict
231 436 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction
231 372 Torchlight
228 4,445 Amnesia: The Dark Descent
224 414 Men of War: Assault Squad
222 399 Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword
222 367 Titan Quest: Immortal Throne
211 314 Half-Life 2: Episode One
205 362 Darksiders
201 307 Half-Life
199 404 BioShock

Some of those I've never even heard of...and not ONE worth $15 a month ;)

I am actually surprised DCUO hasn't seen a bounce from the free time:

I took at DCUO's Steam numbers early this morning around and they were 172, 371. Abysmally low given the free game time.

If the Democrats didn't have double standards, they'd have none at all.

Like many other mmos, the problem with DCU isn't the price. Well it isn't worth the price tag, but that is for many other reasons.

I thought a few soe games might see a small bump from the free time, but free time doesn't resolve the issues that caused them to leave in the first place. Vanguard is going through the same situation right now.

DCU could be great, but it isn't. Vanguard could be great, but it isn't. Players are quickly greeted by all the issues that caused them to leave in the first place in addition to empty servers. Very very empty servers.

You are right about it not being the price. Every SOE account I ever had is now open for 45 days. I have no desire AT ALL to use it.

Why? The reasons WHY I QUIT (the NGE, the death of my server community) are still there! Why should I bother? I didn't quit SWG because of what it was costing me, I quit because it wasn't fun.

Apparently those playing DCUO felt the same way. I am more surprised the line more or less resumed on the curve of decline where it left off, really. Maybe DCUO is near bottom?

Of course, that's a really REALLY REAAAAALLY low bottom....

Thanks Kaz! I'm going to plug those #'s in because I haven't seen DCUO on the chart at all today, meaning it's below the top 100 games being played.

I saw those numbers at around 7:00 am EDST and also noticed it dropped off the top 100 as the day progressed. can you imagine what the numbers would be if there was NO free game time?!?
:woohoo:

Just bumping this because the numbers shocked me:

220 was the "high" during the past 24 hours. Keep in mind that no player is paying a cent - if you've EVER played it, you can access it now for FREE (loss of identity not included in that 'free' comment) .

So lemme ask those of you who tried DCUO...even if it went F2P, would that save it? Is there ANY hope for DCUO?

Essentially it's free right now and the most they can muster is 220 effin players. Are all the people who said "this game should be F2P" wrong? Even FREE, this game is STILL tanking.

People can knock Steam as not being accurate, but I know quite a few of my old SWG friends use it and it's something both of my kids use daily. It may not give us 100% accurate numbers, but it DOES show trends perfectly.

Eh... if Steam was reporting 172,000 earlier then I'm guessing that that high is 220k players ;)
Not that bad for an MMORPG if that's the case (is it hours or players that are shown?) Not great, but also not ridiculously low.
