    Default server population trends now available

    RiftStatus.net has added 30-day and 60-day trend lines for the servers to give you an idea of how much time each server spends in "Low", "High" or "Full" status.

    While this might full debate about "Rift is dying" vs. "Rift is growing", it will also be very useful for those considering what server to roll on or, with 1.3, to transfer to.

    I'd like to thank the website admin for adding these features! Here, you can see how Briarcliff is spending more and more time in High and Full:

    Here, you can see the dramatic effect of the "Recommended" server status on Alsbeth & Silkweb:

    Very cool.

    Is it possible to view an overall graph of all the servers combined? Like number of servers in high pop, full, med, etc? Would be cool to see overall trending of the entire Rift population.

    Hi Faydon,

    You do understand, don't you, that all 3 of those graphs show improvement?

    The yellow line is the "Low" line.. so having it go down means the server is gaining population.

    Jesus. Considering the low population cutoff is in the 200-300 user range, that's some horrid population problems.

    Count the days until transfers are available lol.

    You can very clearly see that the NA server trend from early March to now is not good looking.

    Trion needs to man up, and figure out a solution to remedy the game's decline.

    Every one of those servers shows the "Low" trending to 0%.

    That means that their minimum playerbase (i.e. 3 am) is 200 or so players. Their peak is likely around 600-700 players (and trending up) if other servers are an indication.

    "Rift is dying" is so last month.
