Just something I've been collecting over the last couple of weeks. Thought some of you guys might be interested.
Its a bit of a break down of Xfire Diablo 3 play time and its decline.
I know Xfire is only used by a small group of people and all the caveats associated with that. However, the sample sizes are pretty huge and will give a good proportional representation of the players, NOT numbers but proportions.
Basically, I've been seeing a ~20% decrease in player number each week every week for the last 10 weeks. This weekend we hit 81.51% loss is player number from the peak on 25 May (I don't have data earlier). This weekend jumped up to 25% loss, most likely due to the lack of the usual player number bump from a patch.
It's strange and worrying we haven't seen a levelling out of player number losses.
Anyway, hope people find this interesting.
