I own a game called Daycare center, which normally averages about 700-1K players a day However, recently for some inexplicable reason, my player count has sharply and steadily declined to just barely reaching 300. I had recently released an update that had increased my player count tenfold allowing the game to average around 2K-3K players a day. This was also inflated due to the fact that my game made it to the up and coming sort. However after about a week of being off the sort my game’s player count suddenly dropped steeply to what it is currently. Now this could be explained by the fact that I was taken off the up and coming sort, however I had been averaging much higher than what I am now before even making it to this sort.
I have not been able to come up with a reason for this besides either a shadowban or the game is a playground for exploiters. The latter doesn’t seem possible however, since my game has FE support and does not have any loopholes as far as I know which hackers could exploit. I will attach a picture of my daily stats, if you all can find a reason for this please let me know. Thank you!
