You really have ZERO for brains don't you?
Lets break this down.
DAY 1 = 1 Million UNIQUE players.
Day 2 = 1 Million UNIQUE players. (These are not the same as the previous day as they are UNIQUE to this day).
Day 3 = 1 Million UNIQUE players. (These are not the same as the previous day as they are UNIQUE to this day).
Day 4... etc...
What I just listed above is the 1 Million unique players PER DAY.
At the end of DAY 3, how many UNIQUE PLAYERS have I had thus far? A total of 3 MILLION UNIQUE PLAYERS.
Follow this very basic math for 30 days.
How many unique players do I now have after 30 days (one month)? 3 Million unique players or 30 million unique players?
I'm glad most of you aren't studying to be structural engineers or physicians or this country would really be screwed.
Again; 1 Million unique players PER day, totals to 30 Million come the end of a 30 day period, or a month.
There is no OTHER WAY around this, unless you change the wording from "UNIQUE PLAYERS PER DAY" to something else.
lol no. "Unique players" per day means that even if one person logs on three times that day, they're only counted once. Once that day is over, they can be counted again for day 2... as 1 player for that day.
1 million players per day means that out of 3 million players per month, 1/3rd of those 3 million play per day.
It's not hard to figure out. The original quote that the entire argument is based on didn't even say "unique players".
Wilson claimed the entirety of Diablo 3′s community—1 million players daily and around 3 million per month,
You're an idiot if you can't understand basic mathematical averages.
No, you are the idiot for failing to grasp simple math.
Day one has a number of players, players that are unique to that particular day.
Day two has a number of players, players that are unique to that particular day. There may be some day one people in this number - but regardless, the "million today" is not defined by yesterday's players, but rather, today's players.
Day three has a number of players, the combination of which is unique to this particular day - even though there may be some players that were on the previous two days, this isn't the point. The point is, today is a million that may or may not be different from days previous. This million is unique to this day.
At the end of the month, there are 3 million players that have logged on, players unique to that particular month. Not all of which may have been on previous months, or will be on future months.
Do you get it? Need me to break it down into pre-k level? Sure?
