Every time someone mentions something about HoN's player base S2 workers are quick to say that HoN is "rapidly growing". How do you guys figure that your game is growing? From what i can tell the amount of online players at any given time has stayed steady between 40-60k pretty much since release. So is S2 thinking that new accounts is growth? Is it your registered accounts that you consider to be your player base? The way I see it you are having just as many people stop playing as are starting which keeps the amount of online users at any given time at an equal. Also how many people are making second third or fourth accounts do you calculate this into your idea's of the size of HoNs player base? It seem's to me that HoN has stayed pretty much the same size since release because of the online users staying between 40-60k, if there are more players now then how come that doesn't show with online users?
It's easy to see that HoN is growing. We're constantly hitting new highs for online players (it's been as high as 88k players online at once this weekend) and we're ecstatic about this. Also, our SEA and CIS region are rapidly expanding as well. Sometimes, the number of users online in SEA will top that of the international client! Since becoming their own region, CIS has seen some solid growth as well.
We hope that HoN can continue to grow for years to come and that our players keep enjoying our game!
