Default What's the actual population of the Green server?

One of the first people I grouped with on Green asked me to join his Discord channel, and was very proud to share that he had 4 mages holding down separate cash camps. He told me that technically boxing isn't allowed, but no one gets in trouble unless multiple players report you. He said by keeping your boxed players in separate zones, it's very unlikely you'll get in trouble. Of course I reported this player, but I am wondering:

When the server login screen shows 1,000 people signed in, how many of those are unique players (and not mage armies, EC tunnel bots, etc)?

On weekends and some weeknights it gets up to 7 when the 2 who only do RMT'ing as a side hustle instead of their main job come to play.

Low pop - 400
High pop - 1100

With the single-box rule that number is very impressive.
Green is the largest everquest private server.

When it is 400, 100 are afk at character select and another 50 afk in EC, but even 250 non primetime impresses me!

Better than private servers like TAKP where you can literally divide the population by 1/3 to get the actual number because literally everyone there is 3boxing (because why not? If it’s allowed), and few are grouping. And if they are it’s grouping a box team with a box team

I boxed mage/nec (+2 healing mercs) on live and with that duo didn’t need any help for any group content. Boxing can be fun - it was for me - but it destroys the group game

unsunghero by that logic you can divide the population of ProjectEQ by 56. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Admittedly P99 is pretty awesome having 1 real life person be 1 character in game.
Meaning every character you see on p99 is a real life person.

Even worse, the xp formula on TAKP makes it so the best xp rate is with four people in a group, so people three boxing will often just have someone's toon afk leaching xp to give them the extra boost, rather than ever making a full group of six.
