If you've been playing on OMM for at least a few months, you've probably noticed that our online player count isn't what it used to be. If you're a newer player, you may have heard veteran players lament that fact and suggest a variety of causes.

Delivering bad news is not fun, but I want to make it clear: We're not in denial about this problem. I'm making this post to the entire community because we need your help. This post is to explain the causes of the population dip and how we can address them.

Now for the numbers. How bad is it?

For about 8 months after OMM launched in August of last year, our population fluctuated a bit, but was fairly flat overall. The actual decline started in May of this year (the beginning of summer).

You can see that we had a steady decline throughout summer. This is even worse than it seems, because summer is historically when we see a large population increase, up to 50%. The expectation of a surge of players is the reason we launched Altair and Vega in early June.

What happened?

There has been plenty of speculation (or blame) about why this happened. I'd like to dismiss or confirm those theories.

Theory 1 - Minecraft on the PC is on the decline


The sales numbers say otherwise. The total sales number directly from minecraft.net say that 21.1 million copies have been sold.

I've extended a chart from last year to add the latest sales number as a data point. You can see that the sales trend for PC has been absolutely steady from at least 2011 until today.
One caveat. The sales numbers alone don't take into account the effect of Minecraft becoming hugely popular on other platforms. It is possible that platforms like Xbox are displacing PC players, despite the fact that they own the game for PC. I don't have any data to dispute...
