MAU grew by 15% 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 third quarter of 2018, the average number of MAUs was 4,098,000. The number of DAUs was 954,000 on average during the quarter. The corresponding figures for the third quarter of 2017 were 3,576,000 and 911,000 DAUs (including Goodgame Studios). During the third quarter of 2018, the number of MAUs increased by 15%, and the number of DAUs increased by 5%, compared with the third quarter of 2017.
During the second quarter of 2018, the average number of MAUs was 4,237,000 and the average number of DAUs was 1,021,000. Thus, the third quarter 2018 showed a decrease of 3% regarding the number of MAUs and a decrease of 7% regarding the number of DAUs as compared with the second quarter of 2018.
“We continue to grow monthly active users, MAU, this quarter by 15% YoY. The numbers for the third quarter was affected by seasonality due to vacation periods in July and August. In the quarter we launched two new titles; BIG COMPANY: Skytopia and Vietnam War: Platoons. We also recently late in Q2 launched Empire Millennium War for browser. Altogether we have a bunch of new titles recently launched and I look forward to the development of them as well as upcoming releases going forward”, comments Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group.
In total, the above numbers pertain to the 25 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, Vietnam War: Platoons, eRepublik.com, Online Fussball Manager, Goodgame Poker, Legends of Honor, Goodgame Empire, EMPIRE: Four Kingdoms, Big Farm, BIG FARM: Mobile Harvest, EMPIRE: Millennium Wars (Mobile) and EMPIRE: Millennium Wars (Browser).
