After nearly 3 months of its release, Evony has moved in to be not only the most popular MMORTS game and browser game, but possibly, the most popular online game in the world.
Where’s the proof?
Well, nothing like some good old pictures:
As you can see, although Travian and Ikariam have been up for over a year, they are not even half as large as Evony. Evony has been up for 3 months and already has an unprecedented amount of visitors. By this alone, Evony is the most popular MMORTS (massively multiplayer online real time strategy game) in the world.
Evony (as of July 23rd, 2009) has a traffic rank of around 400. A couple weeks ago it was even in the low 300’s. Without a doubt, Evony gets an enormous amount of gamers.
Runescape (as of July 23rd, 2009) has a traffic rank of about 475. Runescape has declined slightly over the past few months. As the two pictures show, Evony surpassed Runescape in traffic.
Finally, the all-famous World of Warcraft. Since you do not play WoW on your browser, it’s hard to say whether Evony or WoW is more popular. Obviously, Runescape and Evony have more traffic, but that is mainly because you have to play on your browser.
Evony or WoW – you decide which game is the most popular.
All things considered, Evony has done quite well for the first 3 months, and it looks as if we can expect only uphill from here.
