    yeh the count at T-minus -20 hours is 146 in the 1st Gen Asian bracket .

    @jiga was right about how even some whales might late join in events so there is no way to get out of facing whales here. 

    I thought the US would have the largest player base, but if it is EU then that is where I'm headed. Seems like the US server with @Jay is full of forumers now too.

    So EU / US players, how many brackets in a main final would be open at the end?

    In AS I think the most I have ever seen is 4 full ones plus new 5/6. Nowadays, it is only 4 full ones. so less than 2000 players.



    Question....  Is the total player base really that low?
    would be very intresting to know the real activ numbers of players, not just downloads...

    For AS region, we had higher numbers a year ago.

    I remember finals would keep filling and I'd estimate that 6 full brackets, possibly more even.

    Due to attrition and VPN those numbers have dropped snd now we will have 2 full brackets, and two half-filled ones.
    The whale percentage is in my view higher, so we still get top 8 filled with whales despite unfilled brackets. Not too much fodder about.

    I keep thinking that the game loses its interest if people think they can't complete their collections. It might even be seen in the data that the highest attrition rates of players are the markets which now have the same priced gold, but lower mean income. New players from low-income markets probably enjoy the campaign, realise multiplayer is too tough and they lose interest. Just a theory.

    My 2 cents are exactly the same, when I started playing 14-15 months ago it was always different players in my bracket.
    Now a days its always the same ppl nomatter when I join a event.
    always the same at top 10, some events a different pool of ppl but usally the same top 20-30 players.
    It gets harder and harder to compete since Ive stopped spending money in to this game.

    without new fish comming in its goona end up like a whale graveyard

    Well,  this is what my phone says... around 12-15k. But it doesn't split by region

    Not just strong hands, top2 are running 4 Furais and I’m even thinking to upgrade a 4th one... Just a waste though, needing 4 copies of the same epic for one event

    in my understanding events other than the finals are all trophy based. i agree about just few brackets for all those blessed with 6k+ trophys, i see familiar names everyday. probably there a quite some lower rq and trophy brackets running.
    what is clear... there is a huge gap between downloads and active players, but that in the nature of f2p/p2w games i guess.

    There’s about 5k maximum worldwide actively playing would be my guess

    That low? I am thinking 4 AS brackets, 8 EU, 6 US? 

    18*500 is 9000, minus about 20% for them not being full... around 7500 for a nice round number?

    Obviously I’m just guessing 😄

    For this event, and I could be wrong if someone knows, but I think US are probably still on the first 2 brackets? EU I think for sure are only on 4 and Asia I don’t know about but again I’ll guess at 2. 
    That’s sub 2.5k, even if I’m a couple of brackets out it’s still going to be under 5k, there are obviously those brackets for sub 140 RQ but I don’t count them as actively playing.

    This event seems particularly bad. I would guess a top level prize car means people with good-ish or bad hands are holding back. Lot of lurkers will be reading this forum, seeing 4 furai and thinking no thanks.

    When they do a mazda event, with this rq and this tracks, you can wait only 4 furai, no other good cars... they can do something better and do an event with 2 manufacters or a nation restriction....
