In order not to include games that are not currently played much in the list, we compared the highest number of simultaneous players with the highest number of players in the last 24 hours, and did not include games that less than 10 percent of people played in the last 24 hours. Thus, we eliminated outdated and currently unpopular games from the list.
As an exception, if the number of games played in the last 24 hours was higher than the other games on this list, even if it was less than 10 percent of the maximum number of plays, we left it on the list. When ranking the games, we took into account the highest amount of simultaneous play at all times and the highest amount of play in the last 24 hours.
