Nobody. Nobody said that.

I did say it once. But if anything, it shows the F2P client was a failure due to how ND handled it. This game should have an active stream of players entering and staying. Instead we have newbies who can't grasp the basic controls then quit when they either get noob stomped or stop leveling up.

There's F2P only games with more daily players than TLOU (PS3 version), so I thought it was safe to assume a game like Uncharted would have more.

But why would anyone want to play when:
#1: You can't get good because you're constantly finding players who completely destroy you and there's no Co-op or Single Player demo to practice.
#2: There absolutely no reason to continue playing when you hit level 15, you stop leveling up, earning cash/XP, you can no longer level up the boosters you bought, and you won't be able to complete treasure sets. You could buy the F2P unlocks, but judging by past comments, sometimes they aren't available or won't work.
#3: There's nothing being done about cheaters, who in fact target low levels just as equally as higher levels.

I was well aware F2P players weren't staying, but I figured new players would take their place pretty quickly and it would be a rinse and repeat process of newbies joining then quitting. Guess not!

Edit: I do strongly believe that in it's first few months, (before the nerf frenzy and the first map pack), Uncharted 3 had more players than TLOU in it's first few months. It's not a matter regarding which game is better, it's about promotion.

TLOU's more well-known too. I have friends who aren't even ps3 players that ask if TLOU is good.

But yes, UC3 initially beat TLOU.

Anyway, I'd take GTA tank spawnkillers over TLOU any day. People there take the game way too seriously sometimes.

But are they referring to single player or multiplayer? No doubt the single player is more known with the amount of advertising it got, but poor Factions got almost no mention by reviewers or even ND themselves.

If ND had bothered to promote Factions a little more, it would have surpassed Uncharted 3's initial playerpool with ease.

This is a graph of only a 12 hour period just after the release of TLOU:R. 

 

So it has no meaning at all.

Well, If we predict the graph's past flow, we can logically assume that UC3 was doing better than TLOU before TLOU:R.


But that's none of my business.

Someone did. I did.

 

I'm confident U3 had more players. Until ND made it impossible to play, all that chart does is confirm what I've always said. After 1.13 Uncharted 3 went downwards and people walked away from it.

I guess the only game that can surpass TLOUR's pool is...

...Uncharted 2 or 3 Remastered. Smiley Wink
