The Xfire community continued its slow decline Sunday, with members playing MMORPGs 3% less hours than the week before. The games suffering the biggest loss in playtime were World of Warcraft (-495 hours) and Planetside 2 (-318 hours). The game with the biggest gain was Guild Wars 2 (+623 hours). Need for Speed World dropped from the list after a one week stay and was replaced by Maple Story.
The Living Story Returns - Guild Wars 2 posted a 17.2% increase in playtime Sunday as ArenaNet began releasing the last installments of the Living Story last Tuesday. After a few months the impact of the every other week patches lessened, but after a six week absence players were definitely waiting for new content.
A Ban Wave - Last week Blizzard launched a ban wave against users of a bot used both in PvP and by raiders. Many of the bans were for 72 hours, meaning that players were able to log in on Sunday. From the numbers posted, not many in the Xfire community were affected.
