has Second Life private sim loss hit bottom?

6 comments

over the past few years, Second Life has been losing private sims like mad. and that means beaucoup bucks in monthly subscriptions and it’s something i tend to post about every 4 to 8 weeks

thanks to chris haylerson’s comment on the last such post, i took a closer look at this year. keep in mind that it’s early to make big conclusions, but the rate of loss in the first two months of 2014 is much less than it has been in the past

two years ago, the average daily loss of private sims was 8 per day o_O

last year it was about 5 per day!

in the first 63 days of 2014, that’s down to only 1.2 sims per day

it’s still a loss but way less than it’s been in a while – is this the bottom?

  5. Hi Ener, its basically just the path v 0.5 oar that you can get from open sim creations.com, with the small lake made into a bay, with some basic seats and sit/ float poses in appropriate spots, and some clothing from linda kellie website. (all on 1 sim)
    im a bit busy in R.L to be very creative :)

    its end of summer here, we dont get a lot of snow in winter here :)

  6. January to February are statistical highest peak concurrency months for SL users if you look at yearly trends. But, the fact that there wasn’t as much of a loss as usual is interesting. I predict losses will continue at a more normal pace again after March 2014.
