    Exclamation 1 Million Trion Accounts!

    RIFT™ HEAD START KICKS-OFF TODAY AS TRION ECLIPSES
    ONE MILLION REGISTERED ACCOUNTS

    Names of Rift public servers revealed on the game’s official forums

    Trion Worlds announced today that more than one million accounts have been created to date, signaling a high level of interest for the company’s first massively multiplayer online game, Rift™, which is scheduled to launch March 1st in North America, March 3rd in pan-European countries, and March 4th in the UK. The news hits just as the game’s Head Start period begins, giving pre-order customers advance playtime before servers officially open on launch day.

    Launching with 33 Head Start servers, Rift will feature dedicated realms for PvP, PvE, and role-playing players. Servers are live today, coinciding with the game’s Head Start period, which lasts until the game launches next week.

    This is SWEET!

    One million? Never would have guessed that many!

    Congrats Trion!
    Look at your post, now back to mine; Now back to your post, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn't mine, but if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate content, it could look like mine. Look down, backup, where are you? You're scrolling through threads, reading the post your post could look like. What did you post? Back at mine; It's a reply saying something you want to hear. Look again and the reply is now diamonds and unicorns. Anything is possible when you think before you post. The moon is shrinking.

    Everyone please keep in mind that this is the REGISTERED users. This is not anything to do with sales.
    Trion gave us a hint that each server should have around 1500 people online at once, the entire day. Because of that, the actual preorder estimate is 380 thousand accounts.
    (NOTE, THIS IS ABOUT CONSISTENCY NOT MAXIMUM PLAYERS ON PER DAY. OBVIOUSLY SERVERS CAN HANDLE MORE THAN 1500 AT ONCE. THE POINT IS, THAT IS THE GOAL.)

    On average, the avreage MMO players spends 20 hours a week (google it)

    That's 2.8 hours a day.
    24/2.8 = 8.57142857
    Assuming that there is consistency involved, assume that 8 different people will be on in single hour PER PLAYER (while another logs off) while maintaining population.

    Therefore, you can assume that 1500 players per server that's consistent is actually a player amount of
    12,000 (1500 players consistent, with 8 different people on per person.) {1500 * 8}

    Since there are 30 servers, an estimate of 382,000 preorders have been made. (Because if there is an estimate of 12,000 per server, then multiply it by 30.)


    That sounds more believable right?




    This is assuming that everyone plays 20 hours a week, and it's truly 1500 players they aim for. IN addition, we have no idea if they made the servers smaller so that way every realm can be full of population. So take this as a minimal estimate. One thing I can guarentee is unless they've inflated over 10 servers the game has atleast 250,000 preorders.
