I really want to know where they get those numbers.
A few months back I checked every server how populated they were and they were rather empty, except 1 or 2 exceptions like Area 52 on horde side (alliance side is completely deserted).
You logged on to every server? There are almost 250 US servers alone. Another 100 for Europe. Then you take into account Horde and Alliance side... and the time it takes to run a proper /who census with a mod. Sorry, I'm calling bullshit. And even then you only get concurrent users, not how many active subscriptions there are.
And that's not even considering China, which I have no fucking clue how they calculate a user there.
Think what you want. I did it and it really didnt take that long.
Try it yourself, its not that hard.
Youre saying it yourself, you have no clue how they calculate a player in China. Me neither, and since they dont even give out simple info like that, their numbers are useless, and from my experience bullshit.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
