Total Digital Dozen Hours: 27,249
Sunday saw the Xfire community spend 2 more hours playing MMORPGs than it did the weekend before. The game that experienced the biggest jump in popularity was Star Wars: The Old Republic (+424 hours) while Aion saw the biggest drop (-272 hours). Runescape fell out of the list and was replaced by CABAL Online. Sunday was CABAL Online's third ever appearance on The Digital Dozen and first since September 2013.
The Thrill Is Over - Apparently the bump that Aion received with the release of the Steel Cavalry patch is over. While managing not to drop during last week's 7.3% overall decline in the Xfire community's playtime of the top MMORPGs, Aion saw a 22.3% decline this week.
A Permanent Bump? - EVE Online recovered from last week's overall decline and has seen an increase of 22.3% in the hours spent playing with internet spaceships by the Xfire community since the Battle of B-R5RB. This is significant because CCP saw a huge increase in the number of trial accounts opened immediately after the battle. Those 14-day trials have expired, which means that CCP succeeded in converting those trial accounts into playing accounts. In other indications of permanent growth, actual peak concurrent user numbers reached over 50,000 for three straight days and CCP is increasing the cap on the size of corporations (guilds in other games) in order to accommodate the influx of new players. It's nice to see that the Xfire numbers can show the increase in actual numbers of players.
