On May 16, 2007, FINAL FANTASY XI entered its sixth year of service! FINAL FANTASY XI has steadily grown over the months and years into a thriving community of more than 500,000 users. Once again, the development and operations teams have analyzed the paths and choices of Vana’diel’s adventurers and compiled a detailed report.
We hope you enjoy this in-depth look at FINAL FANTASY XI’s constantly evolving community!

Login Distribution

The graphs below represent the login data for a sample week in May, 2007. From the peaks and troughs we can determine that there are three main login times representing users from the regions of Japan, North America, and Europe. During any time zone, a significant percentage of the 500,000+ player base will be logged into the game. As can be expected, the number of logins at any particular time is generally higher over the weekend period.

Now let’s take a look at the amount of time players spend on a character each day. Last year’s census saw 72% of people logging in for less than 3 hours of play time, while this year that figure has risen to 77.8%. In contrast, average play time for this year has increased slightly to 168 minutes from 164 minutes last year.
