Posted on November 19, 2011, Phil Owen Minecraft By the Numbers (2 Billion Files Downloaded From the Launcher!)
The Minecon Mojang Developers panel was more than just techspeak I don’t understand; it was also numbers I do understand. Some of the guys got to talk about Minecraft.net and some interesting numbers behind it. Here is what they said:
241,920,000 logins per month
1,000 logins per hour
4000 logins per second after 1.0 launch
2,000,000,000 files download by the launcher
11,000 skin downloads (in game) per second
Some pretty large numbers there, man. Pretty large numbers. I’m impressed.
