First off I am no Woodpecker.

 

Block Quote

Woodpecker (RU gamer term) - Some one who attacks a wonderful tree of life game, such as WoWP, over and over again. Pecking at the tree (game) always at the software bugs thus weaken it to a hulk of uselessness.  If you are called a Woodpecker in the RU gaming world, you are considered an instigator of riots, and contrair. The term is consider derogatory. To be classified as "Woodpecker", you attack the game for no reason and your primary intent is to drive away new gamers.

 

Now with that out of the way, here are the player stats news for the past 30 days of the Steam version of WoWP player Stats.

 

Month  Avg. Players Gain %     Gain Peak Players
Last 30 Days    317.8 -2.1% -0.66% 680
September 2018 319.9 - - 680

 

Source:
 
To me this is sad to see, but understandable. I was expecting at least 2k+ peak in players. Goal too high? However not so. These numbers may dip some more as we go into the holiday season. Anyways I thought you guys deserve the news.

Lol... yea that's what happens when you restrict/takeout/withhold content that could make the game more enjoyable to play.

I don’t see the problem. These are only Steam players which didn’t play before, so they are new adds.

 

So we have more playing than before but you expected it to be more popular with Steam players. 

 

The reviews are Mixed; I avoid games with this review. Have you provided a positive review or are you a Woodpecker?

...If we're going to play the whole labeling game how bout I use the words Disconnected, Arrogant, CluelessUnemployed towards Persha. Is that about accurate enough to describe the developer of this game? I think so :P

 

Woodpecker... Since when did we shift to referencing birds? The heck is wrong with this company.

I already posted the chart here: http://forum.worldofwarplanes.com/index.php?/topic/53930-with-the-steam-folks-joining-us/page__pid__750514#entry750514

 

but here's the latest:

 

 

I'm still not certain how these numbers break out between the three regions though?

 

Fortunately, Steam's not a very popular gamers portal as I understand it. :hiding:

Just about 3 days that spike lasted. What this game needs is for that spike to keep going upwards for a few more months. Ofcourse you can't really achieve that if the content addition is stagnating. The graph shows what we already know and is reminiscent of what 1.x went through - game is currently in limbo mode. Not really growing. A steady decline is not something that I would be proud of if I was in the marketing department of this game.

I have been in it since 2013 unlike others. I'm in it for the WoWP players. The thing is, news is neither good nor bad. It is all a matter of perspective.

I believe what he's saying is that if you're not cheering for the game like an adhd madhatter...


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Is that  guy a cool-aid drinker?

 

Flak has always cared for this game more than any cool aid drinker/fair weather tester. Most of us are "rational-peckers" meaning we expect decisions based on  common sense and logic. Pretty much exactly the opposite of what has happened.

 

until we can see the actual numbers, and they are higher than pre-idiot 1.5 changes things are worse off.

Now, now. Let's be nice. Despite the player in question having only played 3 battles in the update 1.9 version of WoWP, they can have their own POV. See this is called discussion.

Those Stats are also averages as far as I can tell (not sure where the data came from, so will not stand firmly on that point) which is subject to change frequently.

 

Additionally, it is still in "Early Access" on Steam. Once there is an Official Launch, we hope to see more of a player base on Steam.

Well despite your best efforts, Steam is publishing them here. If you want to block them, talk to Steam. 

 

And BTW here is the latest snapshot of the WoWP steam stats

 

 

So keep working in improving WoWP. Work in progress. Miles to go before you sleep.
