I would rather change the title of this topic to "[POLL]How many people play Minetest", since when you play Minetest you're already a "Gamer".
The number of players is over 10.000 and it's certainly growing everyday.
Happy new Year 2020: let's all aim finally for a clear vision of what we want to make of Minetest!

It depends on what you call "playing".
I think:
  • testing or being involved in development : 200
  • playing every day or nearly : 2,000
  • playing sometimes : 15,000
  • have played once : 500,000

I know in my circle at least 2 people that have played Minetest independently from me.
Just realize how bored we would be if the world was perfect.

My guess is that the number of regular players is somewhere between 1000 and 10000, but I tend towards 10000. This is based on the number of people playing online right now (ca. 200, which is quite astonishing for a free software) and the registered forum accounts with at least 1 post (ca. 5759).

BTW: The options are somewhat biased. ;-)

I meant it. Every gamer that play Minetest. I think amount if players is 1000000+ as many servers are full by them. Furthermore i see every time new and new players. Also the forum essentially is growing.

sfan5 uploaded the master serverlist calls with the timespam of 10 days (end date=170317) which gives a little insight of how many times the "Multiplayer / Client" tab was clicked.
https://kitsunemimi.pw/tmp/serverlist_s ... -03-17.txt
These are quite many people but we can't tell how many different players there actually are. Someone might click get the serverlist 20 times without joining a server, while another person only plays in singleplayer worlds.

As of Jan 9, 2015, roughly 1 million or more accounts are logged in and playing minecraft at any given time. -Nathan Adams

After 2 years, I would suspect that number has increased to somewhere around 2,000,000.

Assuming the stats are correct, that is about 2,000,000 playing Minetest servers alone. Accounting for all those singleplayers out there, that number could be bumped up to around 2.5M or 3M. This means that Minetest has more players than Minecraft, or if we account for players possibly getting the serverlist more than once, we could keep it around 2M or 2.5M which still equals or surpasses Minecraft... somehow I suspect something with my math is wrong...

And then of course there is this that says Minecraft has sold ~26.3M PC/Mac Editions thus far. Of course, I would not be surprised if a lot of those are people with multiple accounts or something... point is thats a helluva lot of sales.

And if that wasn't enough sales for you, heres this.
As of February 2017, over 121 million copies have been sold across all platforms

That's a lot of sales. Which pretty much kills my earlier reasoning, but it was nice to hope. But still... that's a lot of Minetest players.

Hey, you. You're finally awake.
You were trying to view their profile, right? Found the rest of their signature, same as us, and that guest over there.

There is around +10k which are permanent players, and others are just mostly bots, kids who join in server from another copyed client of minetest ( multicraft, miner ...etc ) with random name and random password, which play on server 5 min and never come back again.

It can`t Minetest players amount increase Minecraft ones. Maybe it happens for other Minetest-like games as Multicraft and other. But even those games can not increase the number of players and do more than in mc.

Minecraft is number one game in list of number of players, why would you compare it with mintest ?

Near 500 peoples play in Minetest servers at the same time. I don`t know how many ones usually play in Minecraft servers as i used to play there long ago.
