2018-07-19

PRESS RELEASE July 19, 2018 eRepublik Labs begins soft launch of new historical strategy MMO "Vietnam War: Platoons" eRepublik Labs, a subsidiary of Stillfront Group AB ("Stillfront") prepares its fourth mobile historical Strategy MMO, "Vietnam War: Platoons" for soft launch today. Building on its historical strategy MMO game engine and the success of its 3 previously released games in the genre: "Age of Lords", "World at War WW2" and "War and Peace: American Civil War", eRepublik Labs is about to soft launch "Vietnam War: Platoons", a Vietnam War themed mobile strategy MMO in certain markets. After a period of fine-tuning and marketing tests during the soft launch period, the game will go on full release before the end of the year. eRepublik Labs uses a theme testing methodology that it applies in pre-production before starting developing any new strategy MMO to identify the highest potential historical themes with its core audience of historical strategy fans. The Vietnam war theme scored strongly in these tests, including higher relevance scores and better CPI's than its latest hit "War and Peace", an American Civil War themed strategy MMO. "I am proud of the eRepublik Labs team, this is now the 4th game we launch in the past 3 years in the historical mobile strategy MMO genre and each game has been more popular than the previous one.

The team keeps raising the bar with each one of their new releases not only by fine tuning their strategy MMO engine but also by bringing major improvements that are also applied in the live games that continue to engage a loyal player base" says Jörgen Larsson, CEO of Stillfront. eRepublik Labs is recognized by Google Play as one of its top developers in the world (all its games carry the "top developer" badge) and its games have often been selected for featuring by the Apple editorial team. eRepublik Labs has a strong track record for historically themed strategy MMO's on mobile. "War and Peace: American Civil War", eRepublik Labs most successful mobile game to date launched in October 2017 and is one of the top grossing strategy games in multiple markets on the Google Play Store and so is "Word at War WW2" that launched in October 2016. "Age of Lords" launched in March 2015 and is still one of the most appreciated Strategy MMO's with a loyal user base. All three games are profitable. THE EREPUBLIK LABS STORY: eRepublik Labs is an independent team of veteran game crafters that are passionate about history and strategy. All have worked on games that have reached millions of players. eRepublik Labs is now part of an alliance of nine near-autonomous studios in Stillfront Group AB (quoted on Nasdaq First North, ticker SF).

Stillfront Group AB: MAU grew by 26% YoY

2018-07-09

PRESS RELEASEJuly 9, 2018 MAU grew by 26% YoY Stillfront Group AB ("Stillfront") systematically works with improving the product portfolio to optimize performance and reward/risk. Among many things, Stillfront continuously monitors the number of active users of the online games on a monthly basis (MAU - Monthly Active User) and daily basis (DAU - Daily Active User). During the second quarter of 2018, the average number of MAUs was 4,237,000. The number of DAUs was 1,021,000 on average during the quarter. The corresponding figures for the second quarter of 2017 were 3,354,000 and 902,000 DAUs (including Goodgame Studios). During the second quarter of 2018, the number of MAUs increased by 26%, and the number of DAUs increased by 13%, compared with the second quarter of 2017. During the first quarter of 2018, the average number of MAUs was 4,893,000 and the average number of DAUs was 1,115,000 (including Goodgame Studios). Thus, the second quarter 2018 showed a decrease of 13% regarding the number of MAUs and a decrease of 8% regarding the number of DAUs as compared with the first quarter of 2018. During the second quarter of 2018, Unravel Two was launched, which is not included in the DAU/MAU numbers. EMPIRE: Millennium Wars for browsers was launched during the last days of the quarter. In addition, Football Empire was launched during the quarter, which is co-published by Stillfront Group, but not included in the DAU/MAU numbers. Thus, no online games that had any material impact on the DAU or MAU numbers were launched during the second quarter of 2018. The three strong launches of Q4 2017 (Nida Harb 3, BIG FARM: Mobile Harvest and War and Peace: Civil War) continue to the refine their userbases. This has led to a slightly smaller number of users as compared to the last quarter, but with higher engagement and monetization. In total, the above numbers pertain to the 22 largest online games as ranked by revenues, i.e. Call of War, Supremacy 1914, Conflict of Nations, ManagerZone, DragonRealms, GemStone IV, SIEGE: Titan Wars, Tank Storm, Admiral, Nida Harb 3, Age of Lords, World at War, War and Peace: Civil War, eRepublik.com, Online Fussball Manager, Goodgame Poker, Legends of Honor, Goodgame Empire, EMPIRE: Four Kingdoms, Big Farm, BIG FARM: Mobile Harvest and EMPIRE: Millennium Wars. The numbers for Goodgame Studios (acquired in January 2018) have been included historically to improve comparability. Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group, comments "Our hit launches from Q4 2017 continue to deliver, while our older games continue to entertain players with new content and continuous updated. Stickiness (DAU/MAU ratio) continued to grow this quarter as well, and the monetization of our games continues to be very strong. I look forward to many interesting new launches during the second half of the year, with the strongest pipeline of new games we've ever had", Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group comments.

Stillfront Group AB: eRepublik Labs Prepares Launch of Battle Star Arena

2018-07-05

PRESS RELEASE July 5, 2018 eRepublik Labs Prepares Launch of Battle Star Arena eRepublik Labs, one of the Stillfront Group studios, prepares to test launch Battle Star Arena, an innovative PvP action strategy game on the 5th of July 2018 on iOS and Android devices. Battle Star Arena is part of the innovation efforts from the eRepublik Labs team. Whilst 80% to 85% of the resources of the studio focus on its historical strategy MMOs, eRepublik Labs dedicates the rest of its resources exploring new types of games in the strategy genre. It is a similar effort that allowed it to break out of browser games and build the Age of Lords engine that was the first of its series of hit historical MMOs. Battle Star Arena is a retro-styled innovative player-vs-player card strategy game set in space, where you and your fleet of heavily armed space ships fight an enemy mothership and its fleet. It can be played both online against other players or even in-flight mode (offline) in a 40 levels campaign against AI controlled enemies. eRepublik Labs has a very tight control policy with these new games where test launches are used to learn and evaluate the potential of the concept. If the game shows promising KPIs and player behavior, a second version can then be prepared after a rigorous theme testing process and fine tuning of the game engine. If the KPIs are insufficient, then the game development is discontinued and learnings applied to the next project or in certain cases some features that showed good results used in other core projects. "It is important not to simply count on the ongoing success of our historical strategy MMOs but to also dedicate some of the team's time to constantly research new game concepts and engines that can help us learn and drive our future growth" says Alexis Bonte, co-founder and CEO of eRepublik Labs, a subsidiary of Stillfront Group AB." "eRepublik Labs has become a reference in the historical strategy MMO game genre. The way they have reached that level of success is not only by rigorously focusing on their core games but also by using a small part of their resources in experimenting with new concepts whose learnings can either be applied back in the core strategy MMO games or even create new lines of revenues"; says Jorgen Larsson CEO of Stillfront. eRepublik Labs is recognized by Google Play as one of its top developers in the world (all its games carry the "top developer" badge) and its games have often been selected for featuring by the Apple editorial team. eRepublik Labs has a strong track record for historically themed strategy MMO's on mobile.
