    None of this was made-up, I just pasted the official numbers into a spreadsheet.

    From the total at the bottom, people (I presume collectively) have been playing the official maps for 591'330 hours.
    591'330 / 24 = 24'638 days
    24'638 / 365.25 = 67 years and some 5-odd months

    Yes, 4 frags a minute is about one every 15 seconds.

    Where does 468'144 come from? :weird:

    Edit: Those statistics are real-time. There was 10.4 hours of Deathmatch played whilst I was typing this reply (a couple of minutes).

      I see my mistake with the playing time, the 468,144 comes from offical game types, ONS DM TDM CTF BR MUTANT LMS only.

        that seconds per frag is in each individual server though. so during all games there is only1 frag every 12 seconds. where in real time there is one every 0.156 ish seconds. That was **** writing. i mean if you were to spectate in a random Ut2004 game there would be a frag every 12 seconds but if you spectated ALL games playin at this moment there is a frag every 0.156.
        That means writing this reply there has been about erm 50 frags? i dunno - a lot

          More than one person is playing DM at all times. That way, two peaple playing for 1 hour each = 2 hours of DM.

              - Just for the official game types this accounts for 1'859'461 matches and a total game time of 67 YEARS
              Wait. Since the game is out for a year already, wouldn't that mean that the average amount of people playing official gametypes on stats servers at any time is only 67? That doesn't sound like a lot at all. :bulb:

                what about the quiet times? like 4am (GMT) when you drop onto a UK server and nobody's playing?

                  Nope, it's the total hours of all game types played on all stats servers, not the number of people playing the game types.

                  You could say that there are 67 active servers with players on it on average on any given day at any given time over the course of the past year.

                  I think that's right but it's still early and I don't wake up until after noon.

                    it means that when its busy there are twice as many frags

                    and boksha and wombat:
                    say a person has played 100 hours of UT2004 and there are 2000 like him thats 200,000 hours worth of play. that comes to be nearly 23 years. see?

                      Yeah, I understand that, but are the stats for hours of matches played or hours of players playing? I thought it was for hours of matches played.

                      Edit: Just took a closer look at the stats and it is for hours of matches played, at least it appears to be.

                          Ah, good work. I would have guessed about 4 players on average but you've come up with 6.

                          So in answer to Boksha's question, it's not 67 players but a little over 400 players at any given time during the year.

                          I don't know if that's a lot or a little but it's enough to give me a game whenever I want one.
