Proportion of games played as each faction. On the x axis this time is the number of games someone has played (in the data I have, with a cutoff once there is less than 100 people with that many games) :

This one is a plot of when I first saw someone play a game (in blue) and when I last saw them play a game (in green) (all values plotted are the cumulative values).

All this shows is that I see new people when my data begins, and I stop seeing people after my data ends (aka, time is a thing).

The real purpose of this post is to share all my code so far. Its all in ipython notebook (see http://jupyter.org/) files (thats how I did the dev), and is attached. Also included is all the raw data, so knock yourselves out.

Popularity of different mods over time.
Looks like ladder really is dying this time! Also clear to see is when the server update broke coop, and when it got fixed again.
Notably missing is the "faf" mod, that was just way higher than all these other mods :

and by contrast with "vanilla" FAF :

Following on from my last graph, I decided to investigate how many "active" players we have in each rating group.

I decided that "active" for globally rated games was 50 games or more:

From this we can see that the growth in active players is mainly driven from people with global MEANS in the 1000 - 1500 range (aka, ~800 to 1300 rating)

The larger numbers of these players masked trends for higher rated groups in this graph, so I decided to plot them separately:

While there were never very many players in the 2000+ mean bracket (1800+ rating) there has been a clear downward trend, with there only being half the number active in that group as this time two years ago.

I also did the same for ladder, with "active" meaning 10 games or more in a month (since fewer ladder games are played:

1606829674619-download2-3.png
Here its quite clearly the low rating groups which are the odd ones out, with the number of active people with 1000 mean or less (~800 rating or less) on ladder increasing drastically in recent months.

All other rating groups for ladder seem to be falling significantly though.

The following graphs were created from a join the the game_stats and game_player_stats table using the game id.

Methodology:

  • Games where no players could be found were discarded
  • Even teams => At least 2 teams, and all teams have the same number of players
  • Game is marked as valid => FAF thought it was a ranked game

Lower rated players gain rating from draws, and the data for "0 rating advantage" actually refers to the range 0-10 rating advantage.
