Some stats about the FH2 player locations
« on: 26-06-2018, 15:06:00 »
The FH2 webserver logs each hit to the BF2 ingame ad image, so we can get some idea of the numbers of players we have, or at least how often FH2 has been started.

These are the stats for the last 16 days, from [10/Jun/2018:06:49:22 +0000] until [26/Jun/2018:12:28:57 +0000]

Total number of image requests during this time is 11329. This means FH2 has been started this often by all players combined, even those who dont play online. It´s about 687 FH2 starts per day.

According to the users languague settings, the game looks for different images. Here you see the country and number of requests.

image_english    8588
image_German    916
image_Spanish   375
image_Polish   336
image_French   265
image_Russian   256
image_Chinese   188
image_Italian   107
image_Swedish   102
image_Dutch   100
image_Japanese 39
image_Korean   32
image_Thai   22

Though we dont know if it was just one player starting the game hundred times, or a hundred players each starting it once, it still gives us a rough idea of the interest in FH2.

How long does your database go back? And to what detail, i.e. daily or hourly, does your data go to? This would allow to analyze different communities by timezones.

As well as the long range trend, the influence of updates, mappacks or campaigns would be interesting.

Each hit is an individual entry with date and time and it goes back a few years. So yes, something like "daily total" over the last few years should be possible.
But first I need to find a proper software for such evaluations.

Note that many layers in different countries have their games in English (I'm an example of that myself). So the English bias is a bit less heavy than you might think.

Yeah, I am one of those English users too. This doesn't include my brother and friends who copied the FH2 installer from me.
