Planetside 2 Server Hourly Population Statistics


I decided to use the API to gather some statistics about the servers and compile it into a site for others to view. I hope others find this useful. It allows you to see server populations over a given hour and compare them. This also has faction populations which I know some people were curious about.

Planetside 2 Population

(I'm not sure how good my server is at handling the traffic, so if it dies check back later).

This is more of a test of the API. If for some reason the data seems to drop unexpectedly, like it does on March 4 2013 4 PM +0 UTC, that is outside of my control. It happens when their API has outdated information. During that time my logs indicated the service was unavailable. I'm not sure how common this bug is, but it's important to keep in mind. My algorithm automatically collects small amounts of data every hour so you should see the data updating every hour. Note that the far right data is streaming in, as mentioned on the site, so it's not always accurate until 30 minutes past the hour.

Looks like connery is completely full for about an hour every day. I really didnt know that it was that busy.

Re: Planetside 2 Server Hourly Population Statistics


That's pretty cool. Looks like the peak on Helios happens right around when I am able to play in the evening. Good to know. I'm in the midwest and I play on a West server so I was afraid I was logging off right as things were picking up, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Guess I don't have to move after all.

Well, that's because it isn't... 2.000 peak population means it's a 1/3 of it's capacity (3 Continents each able to hold 2k means 6k would be full).

Even Miller, which is still the busiest Server only reaches 4.500 at peak which still isn't that great in my opinion.

Remember this is over an hour. Even if a player only logs in for a minute it'll count them. It's possible to have a lot of transient players that login for short periods of time or overlap their playtime and get counted. The number is just a little higher than if you tried to say at X hour there was Y number of people logged in since my graph shows for the past hour how many characters logged in.

Connery peaks at 2000. Helios at 2700. These values were for the weekend, it can probably be assumed that those are the highest the values will get outside of special occasions. The developers have access to the same data.

Conclusion: Merge imminent.

Yeah, kinda dissapointed about that in fact. Was hoping to see some pop locks after the merging.

I am a bit surprised about the NC being the overall most played faction. Oh and don't pity the VS, they always work best when outnumbered
