Steamspy data will be blocked - BZ1/2 stats archived

Post by GSH » Wed Apr 11, 2018 3:54 pm

Per this article , Valve is tweaking game library visibility. That was used by Steamspy to guesstimate the number of sales. However, it currently appears that Valve has locked down your library visibility, but left "friends list, badges, Steam Level, showcases, comments, and group membership" still visible. In terms of privacy, seems a little backwards.

Just in case this policy isn't rescinded, I'm summarizing today's data (April 11, 2018) on Battlezone 98 Redux and Battlezone: Combat Commander. I may add in screenshots later.

BZ98Redux: 42,178 guesstimated owners as of 2018/04/09
BZCC: 6,583 guesstimated owners as of 2018/04/09

Update: per this updated guesstimate, and downloading the attached .csv file, updated and estimated numbers for BZ 98 Redux are 38993 players, and BZ Combat Commander are 10304 players. That .csv is based on data available on July 1st, 2018.

It is interesting how the number for BZ 98 redux has went down from your first post, Despite the "estimated" part.
