    Nordeus numbers

    Was replying in another thread when I thought this would make a good one by itself.

    Nordeus T11 = how many users?

    I have heard numbers ranging anywhere from 1 to 10 million active players.

    Lets do a quick calculation with 1 million active users:

    Lets assume that a liberal 100,000 (100K) of them buy tokens.
    Lets also assume that these 100K VERY active managers spend $100/month.
    That would equal $10M per month!
    Over a year, that would equal over $100M


    OK, so lets be a bit more conservative:

    100K managers spend $20/month
    That would be $2M/month, or close to $25M per year.


    OK, so lets be even MORE conservative:

    10,000 (10K) managers spending $20/month
    That would be $200,000 ($200K)/month, or close to $2.5M/year.


    Even 1000 (1K) managers spending $20/month is $20K/month or $250K/year


    Do you see where I am going with this?

    1) Either the numbers are severely inflated and/or exaggerated
    2) Nordeus is making a crapload of $$$ regardless of the numbers.
    3) Regardless of the numbers, Nordeus is making enough to hire enough monkeys to fix this in a hurry. A good programmer can be had for $70-80K/year to make this "simulation" work.
    4) If Nordeus has more than 1K managers paying $20/month then they are laughing all the way to the bank.

    NOTE: my numbers are all basic assumptions and do not reflect the actual numbers that Nordeus has. This is only speculation. Feel free to correct me where you think I am wrong.

    I have provided several situations, any of which can be true or false. What do you think?

    I'm a accountant and your numbers are not so far from the truth, I belive that.

    So I ask, why they don't buy a good servers for the game and avoid a lot of problens with the players who pay to play the game?

    Why do I have a plan B to make my formation team 5 minutes before the begin of my own games, if the servers are down?

    This is don't make any sense, that's not my problem but yes a problem from Nordeus to fix that, they've a lot of money to avoid this incredible situations.

    As a basic programmer, I would hire a specialist to do this, but I do not have the $$$ necessary to start this. My guess is that this would take upwards of $200K to start. Servers, programming, website, facebook. Just a rough guess, but if someone wants to bankroll this, I would be happy to organize and be part of this.

    As all the online games, 10 million is not the number of paying accounts or real time live players, but the total number of accounts created. Subtracting alts, F2ps, players living with ads tokens, people who joined and immediatly uninstalled, people who joined who abandoned, i'd say a true number would be about 300.000 actives, of which 150.000 payers or occasionally payers.

    I have thought about this: how much did they pay Mourinho to use his likeness?

    I dont know the going rate and I know Nordeus wont say jack squat, nor will Mourinho's agent.

    I would hazard a guess somewhere around $25K/year minimum, depending on Nordeus's actual membership and/or actual income from tokens. OR they get a percentage of the monthly income....say anywhere from 1-3%, again depending on Nordeus's actual income.

    Malky Mackay would have been much cheaper I hear.
