102,000

Why does the Universe 2 Login page say:
Quote
Starfleet Commander - Uni 2 - A free game Universe with over 102k players

Yet, looking at the leader board, there are barely over 5,000 players. This seems like blatant lying to me.

I've pointed this out several times. SFC says 886K players, which is a little bit of an overstatement too (by about 870K). The other stuff on the login page was changed to make it more accurate, but apparently it's OK to put (presumably) the total number of players that have *ever* played the Uni.

Yeah,... kinda like Morat said,... However I think that the number is the number of people who have signed up "created an account", whether or not they actually played the game...

OK, OK, 'played' the game :)

What you said sounds more likely. There couldn't have been 870K active players in SFCO.

Yeah, that has to be total accounts created. Just an attempt at clever marketing.

 ??? I believe at SFC peak.. there might have been 10000 actual live players playing the game... The rest were created account to fill up people's human droids and the user who might try it out.. determine they don't like it, and move on...

I would hazard to guess that currently there's probably 1500 people actually playing right now...

 :D This is all just guesstimates based on activity and what I saw...

I remember the days when people in the 40,000s would be very active.
