The toughest part, dear game developers, is not the development and deployment in the app stores. Hundreds of games are being deployed every day in app stores. The real journey begins once your game has been released. Getting good visibility, installs and reviews is the first challenge. Post installation, you got to keep track of every activity your players are participating in. Analyzing the game performance in real-time is essential before you deploy any campaign as the number of concurrently connected users is vital in decision making of the scaling of your game.
Let’s take a scenario where you expected a million CCUs and ended up getting a lot less than that, it won’t do any good to you and your precious hard earned money will get wasted. Analyzing the game performance in real-time is extremely important when it comes to deciding what billing plan you must go for understanding the audience behavior to launch campaigns at the right time and for the right audience.
AppWarp has in-built Real Time Analytics that can be accessed via AppHQ management console. You can monitor the live graph of total number of players in your game. You can even view the graph for number of rooms.
How to access and track players with real time analytics?
Follow the following steps to view the graph:
- Login to AppHQ Dashboard
- You will be directed to AppWarp Cloud console
- Click on Live Stats
- Select your app from the drop down list
- 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. Like the CCU graph; the y-axis shows the number of rooms against the x-axis which represents the time.
