Has Roll20 Stopped Releasing Orr Group Industry Reports? No Quarterly Usage Numbers Since 1st Quarter 2018


It looks like Roll20 is no longer issuing Orr Group Industry Reports.

The 1st Quarter of 2018 Orr Report was released on June 12th, 2018 and even that was late:
We’ll be releasing the Q2 Industry Report pretty soon as the Q1 report was a little delayed. Until then, please enjoy the complete Q1 2018 Industry report below:
The 1st Quarter report follows the above paragraph on the original post, found here.

As far as I can tell, no 2nd or 3rd quarter reports have been posted by Roll20 (I'm guessing its still too early for a 4th quarter report).  I wonder if they've lost some of their user base with last year's Nolan T Jones fiasco.

In any case, if the reports have been released and I've missed them please point me in the right direction. I'd like to see and analyze the numbers.

  1. The thing with Nolan certainly didn't help. I left the platform after that.

  2. Fantasy Grounds is still issuing their reports. So yeah the lack of reports is weird.

  3. I wonder if the news or growth (or shrink) is not good and they do not want to highlight it.

    Fantasy Grounds is still growing well and I have noticed on the main 5e Facebook group there are many more reports of people trying FG and liking it.

    FG has a good commercial Castles and Crusades ruleset with many of the adventures available. They also have good fan made AD&D (1e and 2e) rulesets and a decent DCC one as well.

  4. To me, the safest speculation is that they are negative in some way. Why else would they not publish something positive?

  5. They said on their forums (for paying pro users) and on reddit that they were busy, had a restructuring and would release something soon. That was 3 weeks ago. Nothing release so far.
