Is this a GoW April Fool's joke?

Or will we actually be blessed beyond measure? :slight_smile:

So what are you planning on using your hundred orbs of growth on?

I’m gonna put them with my other hundreds of orbs of growth. I’d make a tower out of them but they’re spherical and therefore are as good for building a tower as they are for anything else!

If it’s a joke, it’s not funny.

Agree to disagree.

The amount of Rage Quits generated by the joke 28 days from now = :100:
(Assuming they don’t bother to change the graphic before then.)
Thanks devs. :+1:

I doubt it will be there on April 2. The joke would be even better if it was 100 ascension orbs.

With the number of players dwindling this is so not the time for this sort of thing. Hope I’m wrong but not holding my breath :frowning:

Please provide your source that indicate this. I haven’t seen any indication of a “dwindling” player base. I’m always interested in how some players “know” these things to be true.

Only for the Samsung Galaxy player base. Players went down from 9.55 K to 6.30 K. Now, I do not know how things looked like last year for the same period, for example. But numbers went down, nevertheless, and the trend keeps going that way. Still, losing 35% of the player base in just 4 months is, or should be troubling for any developer. @vanyel

Cool! Thanks! Finally someone that can back something up with data/facts! Where does one find that data on one’s galaxy??

Being it’s specific to galaxy users, guess there’s no way to account for how many of those switched to non-galaxy devices, steam or even other platforms.

But still, a trend down is a trend down for that particular group.

All developer comments indicate that the player base is only growing with time despite all player complaints. Beatings will continue until morale does not improve.

It’s in the Game Launcher app.

To put things into a better context… look at the player base in the past 8 months. Numbers started declining before Christmas - the time period of the year when people usually have more free time and spend more time indoors and on their devices…

More importantly than that, though, the numbers seemed sort of stable before that.

Now… remind me… when did the wave of changes kick in? When were the Guild tasks redesigned? :slight_smile:

Since Steam was brought up, the numbers there are pretty steady, although it hasn’t really grown there recently (ignoring the spike due to COVID-19). The downward trend on Galaxy devices might be an anomaly :man_shrugging:.

Mobile stats are a bit funny for this game, since it is linked with Steam.

I was going to post the SteamChart as well but Voq literally just posted it as I wrote this.

I’m not sure about stats for console, but that would probably be the market they are focusing on the most.

To anyone who believes that the number of players hasn’t been dropping streadily since 4.7 was released.

Can I get you a cookie to go with your I+2 Kool aid?

You should have said zero. It’s a long time since players got any value from the game. This may have have gone some way to compensate…or got us banned due to more incompetency than Trump claiming Covid was a hoax.
Edit.
This was flagged. I stand by the content. Have a snowflake on me.

I see the Samsung mobile users playing on steam instead is how I view the two charts.

Such an insightful addition to the discussion. Either put up some data to support your claim or go away. Your “feeling” or “opinion” on the matter is irrelevant.

For years now you and others toss around how every change is going to be the demise of GoW and yet here we are, still playing. And every indication from the devs is the game is going strong and the health of the game is where they want it to be. So until you nay-sayers quit with the BS that has no factual basis (or worse are wrong or misleading) and quit with the conspiracy theories that fly in the face of actual facts, i’ll continue calling it out and railing against it. Quit trying to make everyone else as miserable as you.

And this goes doubly for you @Thevc!

If you don’t get any value playing GoW, go find something to do that you do value. Any reasonable person still playing CLEARLY finds some value in it or they wouldn’t still be here.

I get having criticisms. But stop just blurting out negative crap for the sole purpose of feeling compelled to say something, anything.

Thanks @Voq @brc_ro for putting up something useful, but i’m now done with this thread.
