    I have steam charts partly backing it up, what is your source to back it up that population would be growing.

    Also if population would be growing I would imagine seeing more than one new post per month on these forums
    "but people use reddit" I would imagine new people checking official forums first. but I guess thats just me then
    Not to mention since Gucci's fame went down smite reddit been dropping activity too. And if we compare forum using from several years back, it used to be wayy more active than it is now.

    Well... They're starting to do a PS4 Pro League. It's coming in the Fall split because they note that there's enough popularity and competitiveness to be able to do a pro league. (Which is another factor that can explain steam losses. People stated in the thread going from Steam to stand alone, but none have mentioned going from Steam to console)

    Meaning that they'll now be running PC, Xbox and PS4 pro leagues.

    Which is not conducive to "Population decline".

    I would imagine new people checking official forums first.
    Actually, anyone who's remotely familiar with gaming companies knows that Reddit >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Games actual forums. Like, no-one gives a single damn about their own forums and everything is done via Reddit these days. If you're lucky, they make a post on the forums with excerpts from Reddit discussions...

    And if we compare forum using from several years back, it used to be wayy more active than it is now.
    Maybe people have realised that these forums have a lot of imbeciles on it...

    @Relanah They could be starting PS4 garbage even if population in decline, and no, reddit is not the main source for "everything these days" Just a toxic piece of pile of shit and bunch of guccis use reddit anyways.

    ""Maybe people have realised that these forums have a lot of imbeciles on it...""
    yes people that think "trust me bro" and no one bringing any hard facts is something that people should count on.

    Oh and those 10-20m ques are really cool,

    Except that's not the argument. Steam numbers don't correlate to player population, and I already gave an example to back that up. Not only that, but again, most players find the official client to perform better.

    Oh and those 10-20m ques are really cool,
    Almost as cool as the new queue system that fucks up queue times,

    I thought you were citing long queues as evidence of low population.

    It seems unlikely to fund an entirely new series of tournaments with its own independent prize pool if population is in decline though...

    Like, you've played Smite right? You've seen how much cash whoring they do with skins? Do you think a company that does that would spend a ton of money funding new tournaments if the population was declining?

    You know, instead of just sticking to the already set up tournaments (Or even ditching a low population format) and doing more cash whoring on skins?


    and no, reddit is not the main source for "everything these days"
    But it is though. It's where a majority of developers read and respond to topics these days.

    Just a toxic piece of pile of shit and bunch of guccis use reddit anyways.
    As opposed to the QUALITY residence of video games own forums?

    99% of all comments about video games are pretty much just bile and salt, be it on independent forums or on Reddit.

    yes people that think "trust me bro" and no one bringing any hard facts is something that people should count on.
    Literally no-one in this thread has any "Hard Facts"

    Even Steam user charts aren't "Hard Facts" because it's all based on conjecture that the people who have stopped using Steam to play Smite have stopped playing the game entirely. Which is uncertain. Yes, it's POSSIBLE that they have, but it's also possible that they went to the stand-alone PC launcher or went to console, or that those Steam accounts were just smurfs.

    Literally, unless you have access to Hi-Rez's data on global player statistics, you will not have any hard facts on the topic of Smite population. As such, unless you have said data yourself, you cannot demand others to provide that data in order to disprove your own viewpoint (Typically, the onus of proof is on the person making the claim... I.e. The people who are saying that Smite's population is decreasing need to provide the hard facts that substantiates their claim)
