after looking over the past week at tf2 player numbers sitting at or around 90,000 which is beautiful to see but I have one question, are there really that many sleeper players or has the free-to-play update really brought a brand new influx of people into the game, personally I'm very happy to see tf2 survive and thrive after so many years playing second fiddle to cs and cod.

before f2p TF2 had around 17,000 peak each day

that means 73,000 new players which is a bit far fetched

i think at least 20% are returning players i know several friends who gave up on TF2 and are now re-downloading the game

but i think in a month or 2 when some players get bored the figure will drop to about 50,000

Well the third server has certainly benefited from the update, every time I've had a look it's usually quite busy if not full, whereas before it was generally only used when the main server shut down or for special events.

Hard to really predict how the player dropoff will be as time goes by, not many other games releasing in the immediate future that could do much damage to the numbers, though BF3 and COD are out in November I think? Hard to know how many came back just because of the summertime months aswell, could see a sizeable drop in the numbers come September?

Wouldn't be surprised too see a small update around that time to try maintain interest, maybe a map-pack or something?

Don't forget some players will be leaving TF2 becuase of this update, some left becuase of preious updates which was only items and weapons, what will they do when the update bring noobs.

BTW I know most current players came from F2P becuase none of them wants to play medic.

I left when it started getting too wanky with all of the trading and silly weapons.
God knows why I have come back.

Still, hopefully I can grin and bear it :D

Still, glad TF2 is still going strong...

i tried;
bad company 2
modern warfare
modern warfare 2
black ops
counter strike source
brink

nothing like TF2 out there =) so yeah, that f2p update made everyone talk about TF2.especially reddit and 4chan =) And that made oldfags like me miss the game and come back.

in other words, this; "i think at least 20% are returning players i know several friends who gave up on TF2 and are now re-downloading the game"

365 * 24 = 8,760

...yeah, nice maths there, AMT.
Anyways, this still means he did little more than CS and sleeping.

Badger, how the hell do you have 470 hours? My MPC is Soldier with around 150, I think. And in contrasts, even my LPC, Heavy, has 3 or 4 hours.

Well, mostly because I am awesome, Mr Frozen - unfortunately it hasn't made me an awesome pyro :p

Actually, I only really play pyro... haven't exactly ventured out to the other classes much - I think I have about 80 hours as demo and one other class which I forget :/
