Stats Corner

This week, we take a closer look at Virtuan top traders, as promised last week. More specifically we will look at Virtuan top-10 players between the rounds 100 and 150.  Who made it into the top-10 most often? That is the questions we will be answering this week. Enjoy this week statistics corner!

To start with, i will point out that these stats will only show the top-10 traders between round 100 and 150. With that being said, let’s continue.

Let’s get it started. Here’s the top-10:

10. goudie: 5 ; even though his last top-10 round was in round 127, he managed to get 5 top-10 places in the 27 rounds before

9. Lepejian: 5; also one of the old players who has not been in the top-10 after round 127, but als won one round.

8. Likemyitem: 5 ; is a known player of these days, as he managed to get to place 2 in round 149.

7. Primetimer: 6 ; if you ask someone on the chat who Primetimer is, most players will not know him, but he is one of the Virtuan trading veterans, he has been more successful than goudie and Lepejian, but did not win a round yet. His last top-10 was in Round 113, which he barely made with 10th place.

6. Gelaarsdekat: 7 ; also a known player of these days, also known as criminal in Virtua. He won 3 times a rounds even. His top-10 places are spread all over the rounds between 100 and 150, starting from 108, ending with his last win in round 144.

5. Refund: 7 ; with 2 wins on his name, he got 7 top-10 places in total between the rounds of 111 and 134, currently you will see him once in a while, but not active anymore.

4. Bleech: 9 ; in his wide range of rounds, bleech was able to get 9 top-10 places and 2 of those he won. Also bleech is not seen recently.

3. Viraxje: 9 ; still active as player, with roots in the older rounds. Viraxje managed to earn the most money in the 9 rounds he played. Mainly thanks to his last rounds (round 150) win with a net worth of 1,7 mil.

2. Gaulamos: 11 ; also an old player who most players don’t know. This player is who I have respect for, he has been in top-10 4 times in a row between round 128 and 131. Before he managed to get 7 top-10 places in 8 rounds, between 100 and 107.

1. Podje: 12 ; podje is topping this top-10 with the most top-10 places of all Virtuans in 51 rounds. He got all those 12 top-10 places between round 122 and 145. That is 23 rounds! But nowadays, you will see podje in action in Cyberia.

With this top-10 I have made clear who has the most top-10 places of Virtua. In total 60 Virtuan players have been in the top-10 in the 51 rounds. Together these 60 players have managed to get 167 top-10 places in those 51 rounds.

That wraps it up for this week, if you want to see more about the Virtuan top traders, or maybe other country top traders, let us know! Next week on the schedule will be a surprise article. I hope you enjoyed this weeks statistics and I will see you guys next week with new statistics!

Stats Corner

Starting from this edition I, dj ricky, will be doing research for vNews and will publish statistics every edition. Round 150, last round, has ended for 2 weeks now. To look back at that special round, we are going to take a look at the participation degrees. In round 150, you would get the Round 150 Participation degree if you managed to acquire a net-worth of 10,000 I-Shell at any point in the round. In round 50, round 75 and round 100 you were also able to get similar round participation degrees. Interesting fact is the first 3 participation degrees had 25 rounds between them. But the last one took 50 rounds to occur again.

We are now going to take look at each participation round degree. We start off with Round 50. That round 259 players received the degree. Only 30 of the players holding a round 50 degree have been online this round.

Round 75 had less players who received a participation degree. There are only 148 players who received one, 26 of these were active this round.

Continuing with Round 100. Even fewer players received the degree. This time 143 players received one. Even though there were less players who received this degree, there are 42 active players this round with that degree, which is many more than active players with the round 75 degree.

At last, we have the round 150 participation degree. This round had even fewer players who received this degree.

What is interesting is that Virtua has more players with this degree than Cyberia. While the amount of degree’s decreases, there are still 71 active players this round with the degree. But we are one round after round 150, so that spoke for itself.

What you can notice is that after each round the number of given degree’s decreased. Does that mean that the requirements to get that degree are harder? Or are there just less players who are playing active and are wanting to have such degree? As an experienced player, the requirements of last round were not that hard to get. So I think it is the number of players who are active.

If this goes on like this, the future of Miniconomy is not looking good. With a drop of 60 players with a participation degree in 50 rounds, will that mean that in round 200 only 20 to 30 players will receive one? I don’t know; the only thing I can say is that we need to work on the future of Miniconomy, as this participation degree shows us the activity of players between 100 rounds.

Next week we will come with a new statistic. Then we will look into Virtuan top traders. Also we will come with a new version of the vNews Tool Ratios. Stay put and we will see you next week.
