Hey everyone! As promised, here is the population data for PVP/RP-PVP servers. If you are looking for the equivalent data for PVE/RP-PVE servers, you can find them here.
Remember, this is just cross-sectional (snapshot in time) population data – this is the data anyone without sophisticated software or a team of dedicated researchers would have obtained if they made level 1 characters on all the PVP servers and checked out the planet population numbers using the who-list window during peak times. It is not actual total population data but rather a representation of it. There are limitations with every study and every methodology – like everything else in life, take it a grain of salt!
For this study, 7 planets (Tython/Korriban, Dormund Kaas/Coruscant, Alderaan, Tatooine, Hoth, Voss, Ilum), 3 warzones (The Pit, The Civil War, and The Voidstar), and the fleet were used. Who list window limits to 100 results so for servers where the population in an instance capped at 100, whispers were sent to 4-5 people on that particular instance to notify me of the actual population in that instance. Population numbers are extremly finicky for warzones as there are people exiting/entering warzones all the time – there is about a 30 second to 1 minute delay (logging off character from one faction to the other) between collection of warzone population data of the two factions – during this time population can change so sometimes you may see uneven numbers on the two sides (i.e. 12 Republics vs 16 Empire players in Huttball).
There are 44 US PVP servers in total – in comparison there are 79 US PVE servers in total – a total of 123 US servers. Of the 44 PVP servers, 27 are East Coast PVP, 14 are West Coast PVP, 2 are East Coast RP-PVP and 1 is West Coast RP-PVP.
**Note: whenever I refer to total server population or total population in here , it is the total population of 7 planets + fleet + 3 warzones, not the actual server population.
