We have recently hit 25,000,000 games on OGS! This is an amazing milestone, and should be commemorated. Since game 25,000,000 does not work (I checked the API and it’s literally empty), but game 25,000,001 does, here’s the game! Thanks to YusufMedhi  and The Tori  for playing it, and congrats to The Tori for winning! It’s a 9x9 game, so if you want 19x19, here’s 24999995 and 25000004, the closest I could find to 25000000. Also, I would like to thank anoek, matburt, topazg, and all of the dedicated team of moderators for sustaining this amazing site! I was not around for the whole ride, but I have heard stories…
On a slightly related note, we have also recently hit 500,000 reviews, 800,000 players, and 62,500 tournaments. We’re almost at 20,000 puzzles, too. We have exactly 20,000 ongoing correspondence games at the time I’m writing this***
Random off topic bug I found quite funny while looking through players with cool numbers
Player 799999 on OGS has this… erm… peculiar… ranking graph. I feel bad for them. They have won the least amount of times out of anyone.
Same with 799997:
and 799998… I could do this all day.
Last year today, there were 18,400,000 games IIRC. A month ago today, there were 24,230,000 games. This means that in the last month, 770,000 games were played, or 25,000 a day, or 17 games a minute!
Fun fact: There is a player who has played 650,000+ games! One of every 38 games is played by that player, over 2.6%! Just typing this, I don’t believe it. Very easy riddle: who is this player?
The average person plays 63 games. Though this includes hundreds of thousands of inactive accounts that have never done anything and will never do anything.
I’ve played around 9150 games, which is a mere 0.0366% of the games. Though there was a day on which I played 155, around 1% of the games that day! (Pre-covid, so there weren’t as many active users)
The place where I am way too curious and expect a lot from people and call specific people over
I am curious. The player with 658,000 games is a bot, so which human player has played the most games? What about tournaments? Can @Chinitsu 's amazing Got Stats? tool solve this? I know @S_Alexander  is also a wizard at this kind of thing. Sorry if my expectations of you are way too high
Disclaimers: this message was pre-written on June 26, 2020, 12:15 AM. Some details may not be accurate, but they were at the time. Also, we didn’t actually have 62,500 tournaments, we had 62479 lol. Looking at the rate puzzles are written, we won’t be getting 20000 anytime soon.
