Hey there, I figure we haven't done this for a while so I figured why not. Lets see some stats!

Does that say... Russia???
Well damn, it does! Hi Russians?! When did you get here? That aside, USA remains #1 and Philippines remains a close #2. Malaysia has reclaimed their place at #3 (was #4 last time). They seem to have traded with Canada (again) who is now #4 (was #3 last time). And finally we have Russia, who came out of nowhere. Recruitment efforts on Google search are still targeting Americans and it shows as they remain #1, RO doesn't seem to be waning in popularity in the Philippines as they remain #2 with no real targeted effort from us (we mainly target the USA, and then everyone else equally, so if all countries liked RO the same, we should see equal gains based on per capita population).
So lets check on the game now...
There are 865,964 accounts (34,597 more since last time). Of those accounts, 16,534 have been active since May (422 less than last time). People have logged into RebirthRO a total of 74,872,273 times (3,517,846 more than last time). RebirthRO is now 13 years old this year.
Loki has 1,669,720 characters (61,037 more since last time) in 32,053 guilds (689 more than last time). Sniper is still the most popular class, with 83,647 (4,479 more than last time) characters (actually Novice still is, with a total of 260,500 [11,137 more than last time]). In total there are 112,563 characters that are the max level of 255 (7,350 more than last time). There are 38,594,663,675 items in players inventories and storage (727,201,118 less than last time).
Thor has 66,806 characters (23,501 more since last time) in 488 guilds (209 more than last time). Ranger is still the most popular class, with 4,802 (1,687 more than last time) characters (actually Novice still is, with a total of 18,720 [6,747 more than last time]). In total there are 2,969 characters that are the max level of 175 (1,569 more than last time). There are 124,034,286 items in players inventories and storage (41,319,021 more than last time).
This time, with last times stats to compare to, we can see some interesting things. Slightly less active accounts isn't really a concern (we did this a month off from last time, maybe I should make this a monthly thing?). What I find most interesting in all this is the growth of the 2 servers and Loki having less items. Loki remains the growth leader in both new max characters (the main metric for growth) and new characters. Based on this it appears Loki is still more popular with new people. However, Thor has effectively doubled in size and that's pretty impressive.
We see growth across the board, while active accounts are down this could be attributed to Cedi items being tradable (so those alts have less use) or any other number of things that we've done to make alts less useful. Items being down is a really interesting statistic.
