Stillfront: Very strong growth in player volume – mobile users now largest segment
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 2017, the average number of MAUs was 784,183. The number of DAUs was 139,558 on average during the quarter. The corresponding figures for the first quarter of 2017 were 310,348 MAU and 77,398 DAUs. Thus, the second quarter 2017 achieved an increase of 153% regarding the number of MAU and 80% regarding the number of DAUs as compared with the first quarter of 2017.
During the second quarter of 2016 the average number of MAUs was 224,446 and the average number of DAUs was 69,494. During the second quarter 2017 the number of MAUs increased by 249%, and the number of DAUs decreased by 101% as compared with the second quarter of 2016. Of the total numbers above, the following comes from the newly acquired eRepublik Labs’ games: MAU: 477,155 and DAU: 62,736. eRepublik Labs is consolidated in Stillfront’s books from May.
The above numbers pertain to the eleven largest games as ranked by revenues, i.e. Call of War, Supremacy 1914, Conflict of Nations, ManagerZone, DragonRealms, GemStone IV, Tank Storm, Admiral, Age of Lords, World at War and eRepublik.com.
Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group, comments
“I am happy to note that our games are very attractive to our players. I am especially pleased that our segment mobile users is the largest. Further, it is important with the continuous high player loyalty during the quarter. Especially the paying players demonstrate great loyalty and strong spending. I see this as an acknowledgement that our games offer entertainment to our players for a long period of time, which is exactly in line with Stillfront’s strategy,” Jörgen Larsson, CEO, Stillfront Group comments.
