Deploying a game to app stores is only the beginning. The real challenge starts after that. You need to analyze your games performance to take better decisions. Analyzing your game statistics is a very important part of your game/app lifecycle. It is very important to understand how many players are playing your game at a given time and how much load your app is experiencing in order to decide what package you should buy. If you buy a higher package but the traffic is less, you will end up wasting your precious money. So its important to understand what Billing plan you should opt for. You also need to understand your audience behavior to make meaningful decisions. For example starting a campaign at the time of day when users are less will not produce good results.
Until now you could view the number of messages and CCUs for previous two weeks in AppWarp. The stats were updated after every few hours. There was no way to check out real time performance of your game. But now you can do this too.
With the addition of a new “Real Time Analytics” feature in AppHQ, now you can view the real time performance of your game. With this new feature you can see a live graph of total number of players in your game. You can even view the graph for number of rooms in your game.
How to view real time analytics?
Follow the following steps in order to view the graph.
- Visit AppHQ Dashboard
- Login with your user id and password
- Select AppWarp Cloud in the AppHQ Menu Sidebar
- Click on Live Stats
- Select your App from the Application List in top left sub area
- Your graph will load once connection status is successful
Real-time CCU Graph
The left graph will show you real time information for CCUs(Concurrent Connected Users) over time. The y-axis shows the number of users against the x-axis which represents the time.
Real-time Rooms Graph
The right graph will show you real time information for Rooms count over time. Similar to the CCU graph; the y-axis shows the number of rooms against the x-axis which represents the time.
