It actually doesn't mean that 1 million people played it at all. People can make duplicate accounts (often times from making one forgetting about it and making another one the next time they visit). People can make accounts and never play.


The problem with the "registered users" number is it actually represents nothing at all. It doesn't represent how many people have played, how many people do play, how many people have spent money. It is an utterly useless statistic that companies like to throw around since it looks big.

@aaradun There is no point in having duplicate accounts in this game. You would know that if you actually played it

It's a fun little game, my little nephew liked it but didn't keep his attention for long.

When will they un-lock it for those outside the US, UK and western Europe? It's ridiculous that my region was fine for beta testing, but now I'm region-locked for living in Central Europe. Pffffffff, bad show Gazillion, bad show. X(

yeah, these announcements don't matter any more. Concurrent players or nothing.

@Dblade

Agreed.

Any half-assed browser game can have 1 mln registerd users.

Pea Concurrent Users average / month and nothing else matters in f2p or freemium games.

Registered users is a number that does not have any meaning.
