Habbo Memories: Habbo Beta
If you have registered with Habbo until the end of 2009, you will certainly remember the greatest maintenance of Habbo history: the Habbo Beta program.

Shortly after seeing the Adobe Shockwave Player becomes an obsolete technology, Sulake found himself in the challenge of saving Habbo from its obsolescence too, which at the time worked based on this technology. To this end, developers of Sulake have engaged all departments of the company and faithful players to implement the so-called "new Habbo."

The program that in the first few weeks had just over a hundred players-testers selected by local Habbo Staff Teams, may have reached almost half a million players-testers after the release of invitations to the Beta. The forum was the main tool to report bugs found and was for months the most discussed subject in Habbo with millions of comments generated by players of all hotels. In fact, some features of the pre-Beta never came back, despite promises, but we can consider the hard work of months with successful.

The program ended in November 2009. There was no more drama, the new Habbo had been deployed and lived in the years following its best phase.

Today, ten years later, it seems we are reliving this same drama. Paradoxically, the solution implemented to keep Habbo alive to this day is the same one that can kill him at any time. With just a few months to shut down support for Adobe Flash Player and major browsers restrict its execution, Sulake is still a mystery about the future of Habbo. And it was for this reason that we found it interesting to rescue the memory of the Habbo Beta.

Repeatedly Sulake employees say that Habbo will continue to function normally, but there is more information.

Game Balance 2018
2018 ended. For many, memories. For us, numbers. Therefore, we are bringing here a project shared between Brazilian, Finnish, German and Spanish fansites to the world: the Game Balance.

The Balance is the summarization of records of players' activities, such as registered users, created rooms and purchased groups from each hotel. The numbers obtained are compared to the previous year to check the performance of Habbo. We understand that these numbers reveal how engaged the users are with the game.

Criteria for data collection

We used the time zone of each hotel to find the first and last records of its respective community. Note that Habbo uses two time zones: the Greenwich Mean Time and the local time zone for each hotel. For this reason you will notice that there is a divergence of dates inside and outside the Hotel. Click here to see an example.

For this analysis were considered all records of the year: this includes banned and fake users, rooms and excluded groups. If it existed at some point, it was accounted for. It is unfeasible to know who and how many users are banned or excluded groups and rooms, for example. Moreover, this is irrelevant to the analysis and does not interfere with the final results.

THE BIG DATA

The data below were organized by subject in the form of Habbo overview and are all we were able to collect and analyze. We provide the data with more details of each hotel to the local fansites. You can see them at the end of this article.

Users

In 2018, 4,267,387 users worldwide were registered in Habbo. In all hotels there was a drop in total registered players. Overall, the decline was 20.5%. Below, the number of registered users in each hotel and the oscillation in relation to the previous year.

Hotel Total Oscillation (%)
Habbo.com.br 1,683,164 -19.9
Habbo.de 100,358 -19.7
Habbo.es 969,143 -13.4
Habbo.fi 52,413 -7.3
Habbo.fr 249,512 -16.3
Habbo.it 83,192 -26.9
Habbo.nl 134,282 -27.6
Habbo.com.tr 271,717 -23.1
Habbo.com 723,606 -28.7

Since 2013, a year after the Sulake adopt drastic changes in the direction of Habbo, the number of users, globally, is steady fall. Of course, the disappearance of advertising campaigns has this the main reason. Of course, the absence (or nonexistence) of advertising campaigns has influenced the number of active players in the community.


Fakes? Yes, we have found many. We are unable to say for what reasons each of them was created. However, we find that in the middle and end of each year, exactly the holiday period in many countries and the arrival of the advent calendar, the number of new users increases significantly.
Does any of your users include in this number?

Groups

Decrement also recorded in the total of groups sold in Habbo. There were 80,033 purchased throughout 2018 worldwide. That's down 18%.

Hotel Total Oscillation (%)
Habbo.com.br 25,898 -23.8
Habbo.de 2,943 -25.5
Habbo.es 16,802 -14
Habbo.fi 860 -5.1

Habbo.it 1,304 -39.2
Habbo.nl 4,081 -33.7
Habbo.com.tr 6,068 +45.6
Habbo.com 16,344 -21.8

While Habbo.it achieved the sharpest drop of almost 40%, Habbo.com.tr stands out as the only hotel to close the positive balance.

Creating a group is not as easy as creating a user or a room. You must be a member of Habbo Club and buy your group for 10 credits. In 2018, users spent 802,330 credits buying groups.

Unfortunately we are not able to calculate additional items for groups such as furniture and forums.

Rooms

The total of rooms is directly related to the total of active users: if there are more users, there are more rooms and vice versa. Many of these are from noob users, but mostly created by players to develop their favorite activities in Habbo. Users (and also staffs) created 5,789,316 rooms in 2018. This means 23.2% less than the previous year.

Hotel Total Oscillation (%)
Habbo.com.br 2,252,341 -25.1

Habbo Club Payday

On the 15th of each month, members of Habbo Club receives a payment for loyalty to the club and a percentage proportional to what was spent at the Shop. Traditionally, Habbo releases some data from HC Payday on Twitter and we also store it in our database.

According to Habbo, this year 9,250,590 credits were paid worldwide. This value is 7.5% lower than in 2017.
The best payment was in August: 937,915 credits paid in one go.

Below, the amounts paid month to month compared to the previous year.

Month Credits Oscillation (%)

Limited Edition Rares: the black box
Puhekupla, with the help of several fansites partners, was able to obtain detailed information about the Limited Edition Rares collection. Basically, we set up a database with information on each of the 171,547 items from the 89 rare ones launched at the 9 hotels over their 5 years of existence. The data collected, are just the one you see in the shop during the sale of a LTD: items available, items sold and price.
This work lasted for months and today we are being able to introduce it.

For the data, consider the following facts:

1. We are no longer able to get this data from Habbo Denmark, Norway and Sweden;
2. The Habbo Turkey was opened after the sale of several LTD, but even so the shop provides information on items made available and sold prior to the opening. Probably the items that appear as sold were distributed differently in the community;
3. The calculations are only valid for Habbo Coins. Diamonds and other currencies were not considered;
4. All data are from the Habbo Shop and refer to the items only. We have no information about buyers.

About LTDs

They first came to Habbo on April 4, 2012 during the Easter campaign. They are characterized by being available for a limited amount in the shop. This amount is pre-determined and varies in each Hotel, depending on the demand and varies for each rare released, as well as the price. Once the threshold quantity is reached, it is no longer possible to buy. Just like all the rare ones, they are also available in the shopfor a limited time.

Habbo Staffs claim that if the rare do not sold out, stranded items can be distributed in other ways. But there is no evidence that this happened at some point.

The black box

There is so much information collected that it would be impossible to display everything here in this article. Therefore, we summarize graphically for each hotel, as you can see below. The sales data for each rare one is in a PDF file hosted on Google Drive.

We share this responsibility with other fansites so they can show you more detailed information about your hotel. At the end of this article, just select your country to find it.

Habbo.com - 87.2%

Badges
The badges became a rule only from September 2014. Before that, they were distributed in the rare ones on only five occasions.




Unfortunately we are not able to tell how many badges were distributed to users. A user can purchase multiple items from the same rare one, but will receive the badge only once. So we are not able to do this calculation. You can discover information like this on sites like Habbowidgets by searching for one of the badges. However, it is still not possible to obtain 100% accuracy.

Badge Sales
Referring only to items that were sold with badge
Selling rate: 76.2%
50,048 items available
38,154 items sold

Non Badge Sales
Referring only to items that were sold without badge
Selling rate: 70.1%
121,499 items available
85,184 items sold

Sales rose 6% with the badges.
Highlight for Habbo.com, where it reaches 97%!




Coins
If Sulake has as a goal the sale of all items, that is, 171,547 items, then it would be spent 34,517,540 coins! However, only 123,338 items were sold and this had the cost of 25,990,509 coins. Thus, players saved 8,643,031 of coins around the world.
