5* rush no yellow is probably the least favorite tournament for the highest number of players, but guess most would sign up anyway, and rather create a “the game is broken” thread in the forum after day one :sweat_smile:

Personally I enjoy it!

Couldn’t connect yesterday so I missed the final result but I have this and every time I checked position at 400 in third day was the same than that at 1000 in the last.

While it is possible that a bunch on 400ers did play thus lowering the final 1000ers that’s very unlikely.

I’m thinking over one million will try Styx Tower. Folks hate on towers, but maybe the new content and the lack of curses will intrigue folks into giving it a try.

Styx tower is new and can be completed without forking gems, plus “only” 50 floors. So I expect more people participating there. Not surprising MT is bottoming out; I ranged top 1% for each time and have yet to land 4* AM there despite overall chance being ~7.77% of getting at least one per MT (top 1% both). And Clash of Knights rewards also suck.

Thanks for your effort keeping track, I find this interesting to observe the trend. I think the challenge event detail is pretty telling, are we losing more advanced players or newer players? Rare has dropped 10.8% from the Feb22 numbers and Legendary has dropped 6.2% so seems more like the newer or less active player participation is dropping faster than the more seasoned players… well at least ones that play the legendary challenge events… for 7 months that is a pretty significant decline.

Some of the longer trends, like Towers (down 16.7% vs Sep 21) and Mythic titan (down 28% vs Aug 21) show worse trends over a year… but its like anything you can pick two numbers and show something isn’t that bad like Mar22 Mythics VS Aug22 mythic doesn’t look bad, it even increased June to Aug… so I am wondering if perhaps numbers are more stable now. Most of the people still playing have accepted that the current format (rapid hero releases) and the ones that dislike that change are mostly gone? Yes there is still a slight declining trend, but nothing as significant as picking numbers pre season 5 release.

Hard to say. Some have returned to the game. Replacing some who left recently.

Safer to say that today’s participation level is a far cry from a similar period 1 year ago. 6 months ago doesn’t indicate much.

Month on month varies depending on world events, seasonal holidays, public holidays, school holidays, etc etc.

Agree 100% a year easy to tell, the rate is slower since like s5, but maybe a year from that we can see a significant difference (so like May next year).

There is a marked decline for both MT and Tower events. MT almost 50%.

Tower participation surged due to Styx, new event and all.

Next is AQ - CoK. Let’s see the participation. If the participation does not match Styx, then it’s obvious that participation for Styx was better because of its novelty value.

You are doing the % wrong, the decline isn’t the difference off the new participation, it is the difference off the old participation… so like MT from May21 to Aug 22 is 442,144 fewer players… the decline from where it was (1,236,563) is 35.8%

The remaining 794,419 players (64.2%) are still playing the event… or new/old player replacement.

I expect CoK to continue to he lower than each previous iteration. It seems to be one of the most disliked events, and has almost no completion loot

Me too, but I fear anyone can draw whatever conclusion they want.

Mythic Titan numbers have been down. Is that because it was higher just because it was a newer event? Or do folks not care about it at all? Or do longer events allow more casual players to play whereas a 48 hour event does not?
Clash of Knights is similar where the first time I expected high numbers. Some said many players were “forced” out of retirement to help the alliance. I expect this number to drop as well in the future.
New tower meant more players.
The challenge events are strange. I’m still surprised some folks play rare and don’t even attempt epic and legendary for the easy rewards (literally just playing one level and failing). If rare drops more than Legendary does that mean we’re losing more casual players?
In general is the attrition actually changing or do we have less new players?
How much do things like Covid, wars, or even regional holidays change participation?

That’s why I like tracking the long term. It shows a lot of the fluctuation.
