I don't think osu!will ever be as popular as mobas or whatever. The concept is pretty niche, and probably won't attract as many people. Most importantly it would probably be bad if osu!, as we know it, ever became "mainstream". You do realize that 95% of beatmaps on the game are copyrighted, right?
If osu! became mainstream, peppy get a lot of letters saying taking this and that song down...

SO DON'T EVER ADVERTISE! Just sit around and play and be silent

It wouldn't necessarily be a smart thing for copyright holders to demand songs to be taken down, if osu! became popular enough.

If they did, then who cares? There is a wealth of music out there whose authors would leave us alone. Stop worrying about copyright issues in osu!.

osu! is already popular as hell. I find it so weird that people from my school actually know about it.

Also blame those dumb "progamers" like dyrus who play this game during queue times. lol im gonna get flamed hard for saying that

I even hear people say the only reason osu exists is to get better at LoL. thats how bad it's gotten.

All i want too see is this game becoming even better .. I know few people that play osu and those that have played before stopped because they said they were too bad at it, maybe a team scheme in the future ?

Haven't you only been here for 6 months?

2 years ago getting 10k people online was a rarity, now it happens daily and i've seen it go as high as 14k+
so yes, the amount of online people is still growing

the thing is that it's not even always the same 8k-14k users that are online all the time.

my blind guess would be that the regular playerbase (1 log in at least every week) exceeds 50-100k quite easily, and the semi-regular playerbase (1 log in per month) is probably at least 3 times bigger than that.

it is no lol or dota, but it is probably close to commercially successful titles like sc2 and exceeds a lot of free to play games by a lot.

Why? Because hipster logic says so?

Has anyone seen osu! being mentioned in other places? What kind of places? I'm kind of curious about it.

I've seen osu be talked about on that Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's Duel Accelerator game which was running for a while
peppy
regular userbase is well over 600k. also keep in mind the MINIMUM online has also seem a huge boost; just a year ago it would drop well below 3k at off-peak times. now it's hard to find it below 7k. i might change the stat on the website from account registrations at some point in the future, since i also agree that this means absolutely nothing.

I'm a new player, started back in December 2013.

To be honest, I don't want osu! to get super popular like LoL, DotA, and the likes. Mainly because of this,

I asked it once at the brazilian facebook comunity and they were against this idea because osu would get more trolls/hackers if this happen
and the amount of "how do I get better?" thread would rises.

Plus, osu! community is the best online gaming community I've ever known. If the amount of people gets bigger, I'm not really sure that would hold up.

On a side note, most songs in osu! are Japan-related. Considering that there are people who find those kind of stuff as uncool, weird, strange, childish, etc, I'm uncertain that this game will ever be as popular mainstream MOBAs (pretty sure there's a lot of people who find killing enemies is cooler than clicking circles).

Just a thought of a newbie, don't take it too serious :) .

All hail peppy, he speaks the truth.
