Total Digital Dozen Hours: 15,505
Sunday witnessed a small uptick in the time Xfire members spent playing their favorite MMORPGs. The 2.9% increase in the hours spent playing these games were led by World of Warcraft (+563 hours) while Guild Wars 2 saw the biggest decline (-183 hours).
A Valorous Weekend - World of Warcraft saw an increase of 9.1% in the time spent by Xfire members in Azeroth. Over the weekend, Blizzard handed out a buff to players that granted them an increase in the rate of acquiring Valor Points by 100%. Apparently the offer was popular, at least with the Xfire community.
TOR Is Infectious - Star Wars: The Old Republic saw a spike in activity as Bioware held another Rakghoul Resurgence event. The event which started on 5 August and ran until today, first ran in 2013.
Is The Third Time The Charm? - Elder Scrolls Online saw Update 3 launch last Tuesday. The update introduced the dye system as well as improvements in the guild system. While the percentage increase is inflated due to the decline in the size of the Xfire community, the game did manage to not fall out of the list this week. I haven't heard any major complaints about this update like I had the other two, so perhaps ESO has hit bottom and will stablize at this point.
