When I'm playing Runescape, you can always see the total amount of people in all servers, as well as the number for each server (it's important to know this because you can't enter full ones)
Because of the way Maple works, showing server numbers isn't even necessary. However, this game has been getting emptier and emptier. Broa has ch1 at 2/3 full outside of peak hours, and it wasn't like that last year. It takes a pineappleing x2 event to make Yellonde's ch1 past the minimum point, while last year it was always past minimum point, even during school hours.
I think even the gold farmers are quitting because they realized that all the profits in Maple come from selling hacks, which doesn't require hundreds of accounts to do so. All the Maple bots are just leaving now while Runescape gains bots indefinitely (it'll probably reach 250k online again by December if there isn't a 2nd bot nuke).
Is there a way to see exactly how many people are playing Maple during:
10 am est on weekdays (school hours AKA dead hours)
6 pm est on weekdays (peak hours)
Weekend afternoon (slightly higher than peak hours, varies)
x2 event (even higher than peak hours)
All during May? Summer break screws up the "dead hours" completely.
