Summary: Welcome to the 7th edition of the Vana?diel Census! All the rankings from the previous year are here, such as the most popular main job/support job combinations and auction house goods. This year we have also introduced some new statistical data, including charts that provide an insight into the overall level of progression in the three expansion disc storyline missions. What fascinating new trends will we witness with the release of the latest expansion disc "Wings of the Goddess"?
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!
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

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.
