Earlier this year, the Games Page became the Games Site, and thus the Games Page Mass-Update (GPMU) became the Games Site Mass-Update (GSMU).
At the start of the Games Site Mass-Update, there were 141 members (Full members and Members of Honor) playing 35 games. Out of those 141, 82 had no gaming information by their names, leaving only 59 with gaming information listed.
The following are lists of games by how many admitted to playing them before the Games Site Mass-Update.
Games with 1 player:
Age of Conan, Champions Online, Demigod, Diablo 2, Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction, Diablo 2: Middle-Earth Mod, Dungeon Siege, Dungeon Siege 2, Empire Earth, Eve Online, Free Realms, Online Chess, Red Alert 3, Star Wars: Galaxies, Starcraft 2, Starcraft: Broodwar, Team Fortress 2, Total Annihilation, War of the Ring, Warcraft 3, Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne, Well of Souls
Games with 2 players:
Atlantica, Battle for Middle-Earth, Battle for Middle-Earth 2: Rise of the Witch-King, City of Heroes, City of Villains, Everquest 2, Guild Wars, Warhammer Online
Games with 3 players:
Battle for Middle-Earth 2, Second Life, Starcraft
World of Warcraft was the second most played game, with 22 people admitting to playing.
Lord of the Rings Online was the most played, with 44 people admitting to playing.
During the Games Site Mass-Update, the gaming slate was wiped clean. Out of 141 members listed on the Games Site, 116 members, whose e-mails appeared on the Activity Page, were sent the GSMU update e-mail. Of those e-mailed, 11 e-mails returned undeliverable, and 21 responded.
I also gleaned from the guild rosters in World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings Online the names of those who have logged within the last three months. From those games, I gathered 33 more names.
In accordance with current membership numbers, there are now 142 Full Members and Members of Honor listed on the Games Site. The total number of games the Valar Guild plays now stands at 18.
The games, as grouped by number of players, stands as follows.
Games with 1 player:
Age of Conan, Counterstrike: Source, Diablo 2: Middle-Earth Mod, Guild Wars, Red Alert 3, Runes of Magic, Second Life, Star Trek Online, Starcraft, Team Fortress 2, Total Annihilation, War of the Ring, Warcraft 3
Starcraft 2, released August 27th, has 7 members playing.
World of Warcraft has the second most members admitting playing at 14. Of those within the guild on Lothar, 9 are at the current max level (which will change in a few months when Cataclysm comes out).
Lord of the Rings Online has the most admitted players at 50. Of those in the kinship on Landroval, 17 members with have max level characters.
This concludes the State of Valar Gaming Address for this year. Gaming information is now posted on the Games Page. Please check it to make sure yours is correct.
Happy Thirteenth Anniversary to the Valar Guild!
