Largest Population vs Most Populare are not necessarily the same. If you have a server 30,000 characters that only play 1 hour per week, vs 10,000 characters that are played 4 hours per week, the later server is going to *feel* more popular / active. (30,000 char hours vs 40,000 char hours).Furthermore, how many of those 30,000 or 10,000 chars are alts? On the server with 30,000 chars, if each *account* has 10 alts, that would be only 3,000 players, where as on the server with 10,000 chars if each account only had 2 alts, that would be 5,000 players.In the end, I don't think counting *characters* is the way to determine which server is "most popular". The real measure would be a formula somewhat like: Unique Account Hours. Something we don't have nor, will ever have. The next best thing? Character Hours. The *most* popular servers will have the most *character* hours logged on the server ... so 10 chars playing 1 hour = 1 char playing 10 hours. Each of those will *feel* the same.
