Impressive stats around The Sandbox Alpha Season 3
The Sandbox Alpha S3 is the biggest gaming season ever launched on the voxel-based metaverse platform. Notably, the entire season ran for ten weeks long, featuring 98 experiences to take part in.
According to the team, The Sandbox Alpha S3 reached nearly 17 million visits in total, a threefold increase over the last season. Its Alpha Lobby also surpassed the 1 million player visit mark for the first time, with the top 10 experiences having over 500,000 visits.
While The Sandbox reported over 2 million registered users last season, only 360,000 users took part in S3. The latest season also saw a lower user growth, with only 345k accounts created.
Even so, a wide range of experiences helped drive engagement to a record 2.4 million hours played, twice the amount in S2. Some of the most popular experiences include Avenged Sevenfold: Deathbats Club (470K visits), The Walking Dead: A Day in Alexandria (400K visits), WMG Land (330K visits), and Ledger School of Block (330K visits).
"Alpha Season 3 was the biggest showcase of what our community has been building, with 98 experiences full of content spanning a wide diversity of culture, entertainment, fashion, music, gaming, and much more," wrote The Sandbox. "It showcased 22 experiences developed by iconic artists and brands, building a community of 30,000 daily active users on average."
While Alpha S3 has recorded some amazing figures, the team admits there are still areas for improvement. The first and foremost is the Leaderboard system, which became a source of abuse by certain players.
To tackle this, the team will include more activities to distinguish users around their best time, as well as their creativity and behaviors in The Sandbox. They will also strive to eliminate bugs and reduce game loading times while creating a more streamlined game update schedule.
