Wags mentioned again a couple month ago that "the vast majority" of their customers play single player only.

And i'm not the only one paying attention to this kind of number, it has been regularly mentioned on this forum, like there: https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php...6&postcount=22
(different figure, same idea)

edit : funny you ask source just after throwing some imaginary numbers at us

Clearly not enough to support an endeavor the scope and expense of DCS.

Logical conclusion : 99% of people aren't playing online, at least not as their primary activity.

So people connect to you using your IP address correct?

Have you thought about setting up a DynDNS account so people can connect to one adress and have the DNS server handle the IP address change?

At least it makes reconnecting easier instead of having to broadcast the new IP address..

Agreed 100%! Although at least 3/4 or more of my DCS time is on MP I get a kick out of those who make the ridiculous claim that DCS is primarily a MP game.



I do believe the game shines on good MP server (my go to is DDCS but there are many great servers for all levels!), but looking at the MP numbers there is NO WAY in hell any company would be able to invest the ridiculous amount of money DCS and its third parties have so far if the module sales weren't in the high 5 to 6 figure count. It's just not mathematically possible!!!

Unfortunately a game like DCS has probably 1/10th or less the population of arcade games like BF series and all the "world of XXX", but hopefully as the game evolves further, we will see more coming and who knows MP may end up see a huge increase in numbers.
