Founded by avid gamers, PlayerCounter set out to track how many players were playing some of the most popular games today. So naturally, we had a natural urge of curiosity to know how big the gaming scene was growing.
After searching and searching for game stats, we realized that no one had any excellent statistics or player counts on much of anything. Being stunned, we had to take action.
Welcome to PlayerCounter, where a bunch of gaming nerds with half-baked programmer skills got together to track player counts of online games.
After a few months of playing around and finding what worked, our group of misfits got better at tracking the network traffic of popular games. Eventually, our Gohost (pronounced “Ghost”) Network Protocol technology, known as GNP, came together. Of course, it’s not perfect, but it is closer than anything we found.
GNP is being constantly improved, and we thought other gamers might want to see player counts too because, quite frankly – the stats are amazzzzinnngggg, and it was easier to present the data in web form. We hope you enjoy our efforts to provide a close estimate.
Rember, our stats are not perfect, but we continue to work to provide the most accurate stats available for your favorite games. Have fun, play good games, and we’re glad you cared enough to stop by this section of PlayerCounter to learn more about us.
