28 Million Strong... and Growing

Everyone knows that the new Bungie.net has seen a substantial increase in overall traffic and membership. When we launched the new site back on April 13th (our "official launch day" even though we were live starting the afternoon of the 12th) we got nearly one million page views in a single day. To put it in perspective... that's a LOT. The crusty old Bnet of yesteryear didn't have fancy stat-tracking so we really don't have much hard data to compare it to, so suffice it to say that we've already eclipsed the lifetime traffic of the old site in a matter of weeks. Here's a quick look at the past few months of Bungie.net by the numbers: [*][b]28,000,000[/b] total page views (as of 6/7) [*][b]176,886[/b] forum posts (as of today!.. and only 3 moderators, yikes!) [*][b]37,000[/b] daily unique visitors (on avg.) [*][b]24,300[/b] new user accounts created (as of 6/7) [*][b]13[/b] new Halo 2 screenshots [*][b]4[/b] death threats [*][b]2[/b] marriage proposals [*][b]1[/b] complaint from Microsoft legal regarding image of a drunken Webmaster on our error page It's been an exciting few weeks and the game isn't even out yet! Stick around, we're just getting warmed up and there's plenty of good stuff yet to come... And tell your friends and your friends' friends, the more the merrier. Our Underground Army is going to need to be rather large before we can attempt to act on our final, secret plans for world domination.

  • [quote] all right ahaloplayer, even though I think you need a big attitude adjustment, I am willing to answer two of your questions. 1. Can the Plasma Sword be used in SP? Well, Bungie has already said that the features in MP are going to be in SP also, so of course the Plasma Sword will be in SP. 2. What weapons can be dual wielded? I believe that Bungie has told us the answer to this to. But even if they hadn't it's only obvious considering they want to make the game realistic, so Only guns that you can use one hand with like the SMG and the Needler can be dual wielded. Although I don't think you deserved the answers I just gave you, I hope they make you feel a little better and a little less angry at Bungie for their lack of information (although to me, it seems like they have told us a ton more than any other games!). So now will you shut your pie hole or duct tape your fingers or something so we dont ahve to listen to you whining about how much you want to know about the game? Oh and by the way, you said you were buying Halo 2 because Halo was awesome, not to find out what Bungie couldn't say, so why are you making a big deal out of what they aren't saying now if you supposedly don't care? And if your computer is proccessing this stuff slowly then why don't you get a better internet or a better computer altogether? Or better yet, why don't you just stay off the forums that you say "make the people who post sound like a retard"? All right, I have said what I came to say. I am content. [/quote] 1.

Releasing details however, makes the game even more interesting and makes the wait both more and less bearable at the same time. [quote]@AHaloPlayer: I think you just blammed your chances at a top job in Bungie's World Domination. And you'll probably get flamed as well. [/quote] My answer to both points: I don't give a -blam!-.

  • Okay, Bungie...if U wanna take over the world...go for it. I might even fight n your side...just so long as you keep all the morality of the US government and none of the bad. One more thing...please don't persecute blacks...I've been teamed up against in Halo 4 to 1 just because I'm black...(the irony is I still won)... Please tell me the human pistol will be in Halo 2. PLEAAAASSSSEE....I can't help but love the sound of my friends saying, "what the hell is that?" and then dropping over dead. It's always fun to hear them get mad at me for busting a cap on a guy who had a sniper rifle across Blood Gulch with a pistol. heeheehee...pistol bichez rock.

  • I'm surprised how active these forums are, considering they're so crap; most posts make the poster sound like a retard, if he/she is even old enough to know what one is. It was all very well spending time on that interface new bungie.net interface, but it's too slow and complicated. The forums are slow to generate a page, due to an excess of images and the many redundant database queries. The code is quite likely inefficient and bloated too. Keep it simple, and fast. A good interface shouldn't be complex. And would it kill Bungie to release some more screenshots or details - the kind that people are interested to know such as "Is the pistol in the game?", "Can the plasma/energy sword be used in single player?" "What weapons can be dual wielded?", "Can the plasma sword block another plasma sword?" and generally, something to get stuck into, not 1 or 2 small facts here and there. Do you think that people won't buy the game because there are a few less unrevealed things? Or that the hype will go down because we know a little more than before? Do you think this will happen?: "Hey, did you hear that the flamethrower is in SP and MP in Halo 2?" "Yeah, I guess I don't need to buy the game to find out now; I was only buying it to see if they'd put it in" Rubbish. When Bungie released more details, [b]it made me want the game even more[/b] not any less. After delaying the game by at least a year, you could at least give the fans some more facts and details about the game. Lets have some of the new weapons revealed for God's sake. Of course you don't want to reveal every minute detail about the game, for obvious reasons, but the whole censored -blam!- or "I can't say" crap is tedious and boring. Frankly, I'm buying Halo 2 because Halo was such a kickass game, not because I only want to find out what Bungie "[couldn't] say" all this time.

  • im sure bungie could take over north america, as thats where most people on the forums seem to be from, but what about the eastern hemisphere. are we gonna have to go over there cause if we are i'd like to pack a bag before hand.... on nov 9th all gaming stores will secretly be converted to gun shops and every purchase of halo 2 will come with a free weapon, then the stores will put out cardbaord cutouts of bungie fans, and we will all the bungie fans will take over while they think we're still geting the game they'll never see it coming unless the government is monitoring this forum ....... oh no i've said to much

Man I keep thinking your Obbiquiet because of your picture!

  • Mabey they havn't released any Screenshots lately because they are buisy working on Halo 2? And as for the World Domination thing... I'm all for it, as long as it won't interupt my gaming time... A world controlled by Bungie... Xbox in evey home, high speed internet for all, more Red vs Blue episodes, and your "Social Class" is determined by your Halo & Halo 2 skills...
