Diablo III, Ark, and Warframe all climb on Raptr’s August stats

Raptr’s monthly stat summaries remain the best possible way to track the popularity of games among the people who actually use Raptr. And it’s a pretty solid month for those users playing online games of some variety, with Diablo III and Warframe jumping up the highest. ARK: Survival Evolved, Final Fantasy XIV, Hearthstone, and Star Wars: The Old Republic all made gains as well, albeit less significant ones.

While League of Legends retains the top slot by a wide margin, SMITE and Heroes of the Storm both fell somewhat, making for a less MOBA-tacular month. As mentioned in the introduction, these stats do not represent anything more significant than the use habits of Raptr’s installed base, but it’s still interesting as a potential analysis of larger trends. You can also check out last month’s stats if you’re looking for a larger overall trend.

mmonerd Raptr is like communication crapware around your vidoecard that lets you earn points for gamecontent. It annoying like hell it got installed on my laptop somehow with driverupdate. Now it want me to buy 2 crosslinked 450 W vidoecards for $ 999,- . Its like steam for vidoecards , but done by the devil.

mmonerd The question you mabye should ask is which sources are outthere you could combine to to one overview. Steam stats are nice,  but thats just steam and I do not know any other distrubution platform that gives good stats.

DontaleMobasa Tandor Shadewalker I don’t disagree with your figures or the significance of Raptr for some forms of gaming at all. What I question is its relevance so far as MMORPGs specifically are concerned. Then again, your opening comment was that you weren’t necessarily saying that dismissing its significance was wrong. I’ve yet to see anyone come up with a better estimate than me that the proportion of players accessing MMORPGs with Raptr is less than 1%. It’s clearly significant for some games like LoL, but its significance for MMORPGs is much less in my view and it isn’t therefore representative in that respect.

Who the hell uses Raptr for steam games? I assume Americans.

Tandor Shadewalker DontaleMobasa It has an established reputation for the kind of application it is. Just because you personally are not aware of that doesn’t make it not so as my example was suggesting. It was a fairly popular application a few years ago as it seemed people were using it instead of similar applications like xfire. 

Again, just because you aren’t aware of it doesn’t mean it isn’t so but I will go ahead and humor you. A quick google search shows that in 2014 they were sitting at 22 million members adding about 1.5 million per month. We can’t reasonably assume that all of those members are active or unique but even in that case that is still a pretty significant member base. It probably isn’t a perfectly random sample size (which would be representative) but it is significant enough that while you can’t take its data to be 100% indicative of the experience as a whole it definitely would support trends.

DontaleMobasa Tandor Shadewalker Raptr doesn’t have an established reputation as a reliable indicator of how many people are playing MMORPGs. I believe that to be a fair assessment, but if you know different then by all means substantiate that belief. As I asked below, what proportion of MMORPG players do you reckon access their MMORPGs through Raptr? I suggested less than 1% but I did say that was a guess, Again, if you know different then do say so. 

I have frequented many MMORPG forums over the years and the only time Raptr is ever mentioned is when someone tries to claim a game has failed because of its poor showing on Raptr, and each time that happens everyone else asks the question “Who or what is Raptr”? It has little or no relevance to MMORPGs.

Quincha agemyth D3 has these things they call seasons in which new gear gets added, a re-balancing takes place, and the playing field is leveled as none of your previous items or characters can be used.
They also added new content this time incorporating a character based on a fallen member of their staff.  That storyline will continue to unfold.
