I'm curious what user retention rates are like given the shift in meta

IMO problem is the quality of games declining severely, but there's not much that can be done to fix that, mafia isn't a game where you can roll out a patch to fix meta.

From a players perspective, I've found the quality of games grow steadily unenjoyable over the past few years. Playing mafia here went from a fun experience to often times unpleasant, which is obviously not desired in a recreational activity. I'll join games with playerlists like Fate's upcoming game, or FG modded games, but that's about it.

Perhaps if we cloned FG or made him mod overtime, his games are always fun. Other than that, no idea what can be done about site culture of oversensitivity and spam.

I don't think that's the issue. As much as I agree about disliking the current meta, the trend of lost players existed in 2014 when me and kison made those first graphs. It's not a new issue at all.


I recall commenting on it back then. My issues with site meta started around 2015ish.

The biggest damage to playerbase levels feels like the tigers attack in 2012 tbh.

It's quite distressing.


You keep running dances instead of Alice games.

Seems liek quality still dictates all. Apparently games have been having troubles filling, but Fate's mini filled in pretty much half a day.

If we have quality games, people will play. No amount of queue tinkering will fix things.

In post 1025, Psyche wrote:sounds like you need to catch up on the current convo
"quality" is a subjective concept that depends on the interests of the player base - actual and potential
the question is how to alter site administration so that the games in queue are more reliably the games our actual/potential player base want to play


Always felt like you guys have been beating the wrong bush but w.e
