I like that Roll20
makes it's stats public on a quarterly basis. There really is a small mountain of date for those that want to drill through such.
I get quarterly updates on those stats from the Orr Group
, the parent company of Roll20
(the big daddy of virtual table tops, or VTTs.)
The most interesting thing to note from the latest update, from my perspective at least (and I guess the folks behind Roll20
, as they made a specific mention of it in the email) is that Dungeons & Dragons 5e
is the most played RPG on Roll20. Doesn't matter whether you use the yardstick of games played or players self identifying- 5e is number 1 in each case.
The percentage of players identifying with a certain system is actually greater than 100%, as they may identify with more than one system in the time the data was captured.
Less shiny snapshot with more detail:
I'm just impressed at the number of virtual games going on. May have to try out Roll20 sometime to see how all of that works if I can find the time.ReplyDelete
What makes me scratch my head is the number of games:players ratios. I mean I get AD&D'a numbers (around 5 players per game) but the top few games look like either almost everyone is a GM, or there are lots of people in solo games.ReplyDelete
The player numbers are from account profiles where people list the games they "enjoy playing"Delete
So someone might list D&D 5e on their profile and be playing or running no games or a dozen. They also might have every game listed on their profile or none.Delete
D&D 5e has done something right. Pathfinder and 3.5 still going strong, pretty impressiveReplyDelete
Interesting. The % of people playing 3.x derived games is higher than % playing 5E.ReplyDelete
Way more 4E than I would've expectedReplyDelete
