      For this to have absolutely any meaning at all, they should have randomized the order the origin characters are displayed. Or only include selections made by players who watched every character's intro.

      New BG3 telemetry stats just dropped

      So they give the number of origin characters created and the percentage of characters that created a custom character. Surely, we can infer the number of people that bought the game from this? I'm to lazy to do it rn.

        Assuming the completion rate is similar on GOG and PS5, that's ~7.5 million copies sold.

        According to my maths that's 33 million characters created in total, but characters created =/= unique players. If we assume the average person had created 3-4 characters that's 8-10~ million, which sounds about right.

          But if we factor in the fact that most players haven't even finished the game. Also I doubted that most people would have 3-4 custom characters for a game they haven't even finished once yet.

            Yeah, but there's a lot of people who restart the game because they don't like their character and want to make a new one. They then get bored and quit the game altogether. I think 3-4 character average per player is reasonable assumption.

              You seriously underestimate the amount of people who keep restarting because they want to play as a new race. This is a big issue with crpgs that give you tons of customization options.

              This here states that 14.4 million characters have been disintegrated

              Which is about half the assumed total amount of characters created. I don't think there's any source of disintegration in act 1 so that would mean that people are waiting till act 2 to change characters 3-4 times?

                Sounds about right I guess. When making new chars I almost always lose steam around the end of act 2 before deciding to make a new character. Often times its as early as the goblin encounter at the gate. Especially if you use a ton of mods and you cant decide on what character to stick with.

                And this one says that 51% of players have reached the final act of sharts romance. Which would be act 3. So that would mean that players are creating new characters once they've reached sharts final scene in act 3. What's more it would mean that they're only choosing shart across multiple different characters. Doesn't make sense tbqh.

        This exact image is why I won't be playing this game. Frick everything else, the woke pandering, the over-emphasis on sex and relationships, the larian-style combat (throwing furniture, environmental damage), the cringe companions. When the most popular class is a Berserker Barbarian, and the most popular Rogue is Beast Master, you know the 5e system has been ported over horrendously.

          Berserker simply reduces the most annoying aspect of combat, which is missing your attacks. Enraged strike and rage makes it so that every hit you make does at least 80% chance to hit on top of being able to chain multiple actions in 1 turn. Enjoying killing bosses in 1 or 2 turns just unga bungaing.

            Can you read? Have you ever played DnD, 5e specifically? Not a single of those things are something the Berserker Barb does, except possibly additional attacks as bonus actions, IF THEY FRENZY, which confers a level of exhaustion upon ending.

              Pretty sure exhaustion is a mechanic but with zerk barb you kinda finish battles too quickly for you to ever get exhausted and suffer the disadvantage debuffs.

                Anonymous

                Exhaustion is a mechanic you would get in 5e for not long-resting once every 24 hours. Since there isn't a day/night cycle like in literally every fricking normal RPG, that's impossible, so it isn't in the game. Some curses, cursed items, spells, and the Berserker Barb FRENZY do that as well. Not in BG3, however. This is one of the smaller changes though, comparing the game to the tabletop system makes you realise it's barely inspired by it, nevermind a faithfully port.

    But never sales data released outside West Taiwan, because it's a failure

      A failure they're desperate to cover up, just like Tencent practically owning the entire company with priority shares on all RoI

        please understand, pajeet shitposters have to work with what they can get, which isnt a lot. Notice how they stopped talking about low completion rates?

        you can go and check for yourself, it would be something like 90% vs 10% (if even that)

      they arent the same ones if you actually looked, numbers are in the millions now rather than thousands.

        My bad. I found it odd that they made a statistic about the cheese thing again so I thought it was the same without looking at the others.

          maybe take it as a sign you should spend 2 seconds thinking before you speak.

    8000 years? That's pretty crazy, imagine if all that time was spent trying to achieve something that would actually make a difference in this world. I love BG3 but this sorta puts into perspective how time is wasted on videogames

      Don't look up statistics on autism games like total war. People have playtimes combined that last the entire human civilization many times more. Really shows how addicting video games are.

        That's not a real person. At the very least they don't genuinely believe it.

      Most of it is probably attention whoring.
      But then again you have actual miserable codextards who don't even play videogames anymore but can't let go of their BG1&2/arcanum/pts/nwn nostalgia posting on /vrpg/ and, by proxy, here, so who knows.

        I feel like the general reception of BG3 even on codex is positive

    I love these stats because they demonstrate how nearly everyone is choosing conventional romances (cute elf chick being the most popular)
    All that online celebration about BG3 being inclusive and making genitals interchangeable and no one is roleplaying as a troony lol

      That's how it always is. Inclusivity is just for a vocal minority. The majority of video game players is and always will be straight men.

        Free glaive proficiency is pretty sweet. You can give Gale the spear that lets him cast thorn whip as a bonus action and it's pretty stupidly effective.

    My Shadowife and I spent the rest of our lives being comfy in our cottage farming and taking care of our animals and children until Larian eventually releases post-game DLC and/or a sequel.
