    Oh, I can play this too......

    That's not counting the bots, hackers, people who have 10+ accounts to get multiple hedgehogs/ polar bears, stolen account laundering.... etc...

    Am I doing it right?

    Guys, I think that OP does understand the meaning of "registered".

    What I think he wants to convey is that PA is clearly trying to make the game look like there wouldn't be people leaving because of the recent updates.

    Sure, everyone knows that there are way less people being active than registered, but the question is: Why would PA tweet this number at this specific moment? Why now? Considering the current state of the game and the controversy here in the forums, it is quite clear why, and that's what OP is trying to make you understand.

    omg please enough with steam... it proves NOTHING as the game isn't steam locked. this game has sold way more copies off steam and can be STILL launched without going to steam. the steam users is a FRACTION of what the true population is. seriously why do people keep showing the steam numbers like its the end all be all?

    I'm typing from a Space Ship orbiting around Mars, i don't get what you're trying to prove, let me talk with my colleagues at ESA to see if i have the permission to land on the planet surface, cut my toe nails and use them to type "Rayin has been here" on a rock while i read your article.

    This is the biggest BS to attempt to inflate your situation ever. PA is a bunch of scummy snakes.

    So what if someone registered? Doesn't say anything. For all you know most of em played for 10 minutes and uninstalled.

    The troll rng of this game is whats keeping ppl away from playing actively, myself included
    The game has the greatest graphics of all mmorpgs and the most entertaining combat style. It is just sad the game screws their active players with fat p2w, extreme rng and weird patches.

    You must be new here, this has been just standard MMO practice for decades.

    But it is a scummy move because PA does it, right.

    Fixed that for you, the rest of the playerbase couldn't give 2 ducks about p2fast.

    Ye, I exactly wanted to grind 30 years for a full endgame gear (all from TET to PEN only... doesn't matter that i would have to get that TRI to TET first which is another 10-15 years) and then another 35 years for caphras overdrive on PEN to OCT to catch cron-costume spammers. Game won't last long enough for most people to get enough of caphras...

    Doesn't change the fact the Caphras system allows to totally bypass RNG, pretty much like cron stones before the costume melting patch: they weren't the statistically most efficient way to upgrade your gear, but it was a viable way to do it if you dislike gambling.

    Not to mention that 11 thousand is after a major update recently was released and in a game that encourages all players to be logged in 24/7 even when not actively playing.
    I wonder what the number would look like if you took away the afking people....

    BDO will probably be fine for a long time to come as long as they start cutting overhead and scale down development costs.
    I think it still does well in KR where they are fine with p2w just it won't be getting the money and attention it used to get for NA and I assume EU but I don't know their market like that.
