ACC player counts in review: January 2022

It is now February. February 5th, to be precise. High time to post another player count in review. A bit later than normal, due to an unfortunate but brief spell of coronavirus on my part. Better late than never. December showed a lot of promise for the future. Did January deliver on this promise? To be brief: yes, it most certainly did. In multiple ways, January set new records in player activity. Read on below to discover just how good these records really are. A short TL;DR in advance: January...

Porsche Mission R – ACC Custom Livery

It’s been a while since I’ve finished a custom livery for Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). July 24th 2021, to be exact. That isn’t to say I didn’t start making any in between. There’s actually still a couple I started and still plan on finishing, but those need more time. In the meantime, I decided I’d do something a bit more simple. A design I wanted to do ever since I first laid eyes on the source material – the Porsche Mission R. If you watched the video above – or...

ACC in 2021: a year in (player count) numbers!

In 2021 (like in 2020) I kept track of the player numbers of Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). I published monthly updates detailing the rise, fall (and subsequent rise) of activity in what I think is the best racing simulator out there. Like I did last year for 2020, this post will be a summary of events and statistics taking the year as a whole. First, I will review what happened in regards to player activity based on each quarter (Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4) and explain notable peaks. Second, I...

ACC player counts in review: December 2021

Hey. You. Yes, you. Happy new year! It’s January 1st, 2022. Another year has flown, or rather ‘raced’, by. As I’m preparing my upcoming “2021 Playercounts in review”, first I’ll look back on December 2021 in this post. How did Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) perform this past month, and can we take any conclusions from it? Last month, November 2021, we had the v1.8 update, which added the 2022 BMW M4 GT3 car and a host of quality of life upgrades. I suspected that, at the time of writing the...

ACC player counts in review: November 2021

Last month, as I wrote in my October review, I had given up hope of seeing the 1.8 update of ACC in 2021. Of course, this turned out to be nothing but another commentator’s curse. On Wednesday the 24th of November, the update finally dropped. In this episode of “Playercount in review”, I’ll dive into the numbers to see what this update has brought us in terms of player activity. Spoiler alert: a whole damn lot. A short TL;DR in advance: November 2021 started out with a slight decline, with...

ACC player counts in review: October 2021

The days are running shorter. The temperature is going down. And, another month has run its course. November 1st marks another month done, meaning we will once again reflect on ACC’s player statistics (note: I started writing this on Nov. 1st). Last month, I was cautiously optimistic as I expected the declining weather would put people back in their driver’s seat. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Instead of a slight growth, the numbers show consolidation. A short TL;DR in advance: November 2021 was another month of consolidation despite not...

ACC Playercounts in Review: August and September 2021

It’s October now. Which means, time for another rundown of ACC’s player statistics. Last month, I was on a well-deserved holiday. Therefore, we’ll be analysing both August and September today. So hold on tight, while I take a deep dive into the numbers of these past two months! In short: the decline is over! The steep downward trend we saw starting in May and which continued over June and July has been halted. There’s even a small hint of recovery. Not by much, but the signs are there. A short...

ACC Playercounts in Review: July 2021

It’s already August. We are half way into 2021. Let that sink in for a bit. Not only has half a year gone by already, it also means that it’s time to review the player numbers for the past month: July (2021). In short: July was another bad month. June saw a decline of 11.4%. I predicted the average concurrent player count to dip below the 4K line in last month’s post. Being right on this count doesn’t feel good. Not at all. If you want to know why, read...

Design: Envision Virgin Racing ACC Custom Livery

Formula E. People seem to either love it or hate it. Myself, I think the series has great potential but still has some problems to overcome. However, it is undeniable that Formula E has spawned some great-looking liveries.  Having done the TAG Heuer Porsche 99X Electric and the Audi ABT e-tron FE07 livery, it is now time to present my latest Formula E conversion: the Envision Virgin Racing Formula E 2021 livery! Like the Audi e-tron FE07 before, I based this livery on the 2019 Audi R8 LMS Evo. A...

Design: TAG Heuer Porsche 99XE ACC Custom Livery

Formula E. People seem to either love it, or hate it. Myself, I think the series has great potential but still has some problems to overcome. However, it is undeniable that Formula E has spawned some great looking liveries. Last time around, I recreated the Audi ABT e-tron FE07 livery. This time around, I converted the TAG Heuer Porsche 99X Electric. First, we’ll have a quick tour of the livery which is based on the Formula E car pictured below, after which there’s a download link for a free download of...
