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 (MAU – Monthly Active User) and daily (DAU – Daily Active User) basis.
During the first quarter of 2019, the average number of MAUs was 5,874,000 (compared to 4,893,000 in the corresponding period 2018). The number of DAUs was 1,411,000 on average during the quarter (compared to 1,115,000 in the corresponding period 2018). Thus, during the first quarter of 2019, the number of MAUs increased by 20%, and the number of DAUs increased by 26%, compared with the first quarter of 2018.
During the fourth quarter of 2018, the average number of MAUs was 4,770,000 and the average number of DAUs was 1,140,000. Thus, the first quarter 2019 showed an increase of 23% regarding the number of MAUs and an increase of 24% regarding the number of DAUs as compared with the fourth quarter of 2018.
“We set new records for number of active users during Q1, the stickiness of the userbase increased and monetization during the quarter has continued to be strong. The launches of SIEGE: World War II and Strike of Nations are in line with our expectations, and Goodgame have been deeply involved in both launches with their marketing expertise. To see such cooperations succeed is very pleasing”, comments Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group.
