You have some amazing proof for your theory chief. I wouldn't be suprised if Bf3 population has declined in 5 years as the same happened to the other bf games. But I don't see tf2 retaining the same population

I'm not sure where to find numbers on online BF3 users over time but I know a lot of people have moved on at the same time, as for TF2..well, it's been around 50-70k daily for like 3-4 years now.

says there are 51k pc players online right now so I do not know what you are talking about, right now you are just making stuff up.

Currently the amount of people playing tf2 is 63k players.

http://store.steampowered.com/stats/


Like I said one game is free to play, can run on any system and has an unknown amount of idlers, people even create new steam accounts just to idle the game because there is money to be made. The fact that you can make money in the game probably attracts tons of people who have no interest in the game at all like me. Although I stopped idling it as I have games to play now:)

While the other is not free, has no idlers and has high system requirements that most average pcs wont meet.

You might have quite a case. tongue.gif

EA lawyers must be interns. biggrin.gif

But on the other hand unless someone truly hates EA and want to see them crash and burn, no one would bother.

I'd gladly do it if I had a chance. EA ruins everything it touches, without exception.

Okay, I'm getting sick of explaining this...There were more players at launch in BF3 than now.

I don't think I can put it in less, or more simple words than that. TF2 also didn't really gain many players by going F2P, they alienated a bit of the former fanbase but made it up with new fans.

The thing is, will it be worth it? As much as I am joking about the lawyers being interns, I am 100% sure that their lawyers are actually your typical incredible good lawyers. Perhaps somehwere in a disclaimer which we didnt read fully in some random place, there is something that would protect them from being sued.

I agree on both occasions. BF3 has declined a bit. For me the game is a masterpiece with flaws, but I can't see myself playing it as much as I used to. When a new DLC is released there is a hype and servers get full for few days but it declines again. This is just my feeling and how i see it, maybe the numbers would say otherwise, i dont know.

On the other hand, I know soo many people that would never give up playing TF2. Unless there is a TF3, TF2 would never decline drastically.

E8400 with a GTX 285 ran BF3. I know this as I ran it on my older system before I upgraded. Averaged 60 fps on all low with a few config tweaks to provide maximum fps. BF3 isn't that demanding when ran on low. Though it's probably still not quite "average" as I'm guessing you're talking about OEM computers.

"Community" which I personally found BF3 lacking, mods, free content/updates, etc. Is what makes people continually enjoy the game.

You cant compare TF2 to BF3. If BF3 was free and easy to run it would destroy TF2. People that play TF2 now a days it because its free and they have low end systems. I was surprised so many people in OCN Lan party on June did not see BF3 or play it.

You do realize that every game ever made declines from launch numbers in terms of active userbase right?

The point was that BF3's population is still healthy and in fact is one of the most popular online shooters on PC right now.

I agree about community. Also there are always new items being released with preorders or whatever, and people always like to see what they are and stuff.

The community is really strong with that one biggrin.gif

Can't see a community being as strong in other FPS type games.

That being said i truly hate TF2, and uninstalled it from my PC. It's not my type of game.

BF3 on the other hand is a totally different type of a game. One thing I know, if that game was on Steam as well, the number of players would be higher for sure.

Edit ; Does anyone know how many people play BF3 on PS3 or 360? How is it compared to COD games on consoles?
