Thread: Elanthian Census

  1. #1

    Default Elanthian Census

    I missed seeing all of the daily and monthly stats of the old thread so I wrote up a simple script to keep track of shit while I'm online. It won't be as thorough as the other thread because I'm not going to keep a character logged on 24/7 but it will be running while my character is in the game, afk (hunting!) or not. The script I wrote up just does a simple WHO every 15 minutes, keeps track of how often it has done this, keeps track of the highest number of players online and what time this query was performed, keeps track of the lowest number of players online and what time this query was performed, and keeps track of the average number of players on a daily basis.

    Here is what I have so far for yesterday, I added in the bit about keeping track of the times for the highest and lowest player after I had already collected some data so the lowest count doesn't have a time, going forward it should work though.

    None of my characters are included in any of these stats by the way. All times are in EST by the way.

    I added new stats today that keeps track of how many unique names have been seen and how often they have been seen in checks (100% of the time, 90%, 10%, only once, etc) but I haven't broken it down by professions yet. I'll add profession tracking later.

    F2P definitely skews things. I at some points have 12 accounts logged in between f2P and paid.

    I'll be curious about the number during festivals. I wasn't originally going to return for EG, but the new pricing plan looks alright. so I probably will. If only to steal services from you bitches. I'll cut my account after, so... That'll be an interesting metric. How much does EG bring back, how many leave after.

    I'm waiting on EG, last year was just absolutely horrible in terms of mechanical services offered. Festival of the Fallen this year had better services than EG last year. So until they release all the raffles and services offered I'm not buying a thing.

    Now with improved super duper stats!

    Code:
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Daily stats:
    Monday, 09/11/2017:
    Number of lookups: 61
    Fewest online: 174 at 06:12 AM
    Most online: 566 at 09:31 PM
    Average online: 348
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    All time stats:
    Number of unique names: 973
    Number of people in every check: 194
    Number of people in 95%+ of checks: 194
    Number of people in 90%+ of checks: 233
    Number of people in 80%+ of checks: 263
    Number of people in 70%+ of checks: 303
    Number of people in 60%+ of checks: 379
    Number of people in 50%+ of checks: 445
    Number of people in 40%+ of checks: 586
    Number of people in 30%+ of checks: 686
    Number of people in 20%+ of checks: 807
    Number of people in 10%+ of checks: 961
    Number of people in 5%+ of checks: 961
    Number of people in fewer than 15% of checks: 154
    Number of people in only 1 check: 154
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    It's a bit early to infer too much from the number of people in only 1 check and the fewer than 15% checks, but I figure after a couple of weeks this will give us a pretty good indication of the number of people who only logged on once or log on very rarely that are either someone trying out F2P, made a throw away character for whatever reason, or is just someone's locker mule or something.

    I also figure the 80%+, 90%+, and especially the 100% numbers will give us a good indication of the number of people who either live in the game or leave their character in game all day either at a table afk or afk scripting.
