11/1 EDIT - Cleaned up the original post to have less redundancies and to incorporate data through October 2020. Verified that none of the responses below became irrelevant due to such original post updates.

We are playing a lot of games on GEMP.
*Note that GEMP does not parse out league (Open, Sealed, Jawa, etc.) or Playtesting games on the Server Stats functionality, so "non-casual" games are lumped together.

7,425 games of SWCCG played in April.

248 games per day. 10 games being played every hour.

I know there’s a quarantine bump and all, but those numbers still floor me. Were there even that many games per day/month when the game was in its prime? Let alone 20 years out of print?

I’ve said it before: besides the creation of the PC itself, GEMP is the single best thing to happen to this game.

I'm too lazy to check but I bet the individual spikes are new v-set updates.

I admit it - I wasn’t expecting this great data when I clicked on this thread. I came for the Drago reference, but I stayed for the interesting data.
English National Runner-up - 2019
OCS 2019 (19-65)
Official First Round Loser - MPC 2020

I’m not saying I'm aiming to be the worst player in the history of SW:CCG. But someone has to be...right?

One of the huge spikes correlates right to when set 11 dropped, so yeah.

Why is there a big jump in Jan 2017? That's really the point of no return for increased usage.

I'm not positive, but I think that's when GEMP became committed to work on a continuing basis. It's when he started this thread: https://forum.starwarsccg.org/viewtopic ... 64&t=64301 and all the v-cards were finished within 3-6 months of that. That, in combination with the major of that time (MPC?) I'm guessing is the reason. When was the first GeMPC?

Jan 17 is right when I was coming back to the game, after Rogue One sparked the nostalgia a month earlier. I’ve read accounts from other NARPs with a similar timeline.

That’s not *the* reason for a spike, but probably a contributing factor, along with the card pool being closer to completion by then.

All these symbols, and they still don't have one for the Batmouse.
