Sunset, or not...

Well that was unexpected. I see Uthgard spiking in population since Phoenix announced a shutdown. So maybe I'll keep this going. I DO want re-do it with something more modern, so maybe I'll go that route. Sadly Uthgard doesn't give per-realm population figures (maybe you can petition them to do it) so I can't do the same sorts of things I did with Phoenix.

Does anyone use this site any more? Please let me know if you do, otherwise I will probably take it down. It's using very old tech, there's hardly anyone playing, and it's just taking up disk space for me. Let me know if you're still using it, or in a month or so I'll probably can it.

What Is This?

This is a simple website for tracking the Uthgard Freeshard server population trends.

Here are a few things you can do!

  • On the hourly and daily charts, drag agross the x-axis to zoom in to a smaller time range

    Let me know if there's other data you'd like to see.

    For old-school chartwatchers, the old version is still here and being updated.

    NOTE: All times in Eastern.

  • What is this?

    This is the maximum population seen for each day.

    Note that population numbers are "shapshotted" a few times an hour, so may miss particlar "peak numbers" if they are short lived.

    What is this?

    This is a "speedometer" of the population change for the day. Green is GAINING, red is LOSING, for 30 days preceding the day.

    EXAMPLE: A bar shows a slight green color with a value of "0.2". This means that, for 30 days LEADING TO THAT BAR, the population had grown on average 0.2% per day.

    What is this?

    This is the maximum population seen for each hour of the day, for the past week. Note here also that population is only sampled infrequently (though multiple times per hour), so a particular "peak" may be missed.

    The vertical bars represent each new day's start (eg: midnight). All times are US Eastern Time Zone.

    What is this?

    This is the average population per hour of day, for the last 30 days.

    This is to gauge when the server is typically busy or light.
