I'm guessing the large valley is the few days the logs were broken?

An initial increase followed by a gradual decline (and hopefully an eventual leveling off) is pretty much the exact trend for every internet game ever released. I wouldn't read too much into it (unless it doesnt level off at some point).

And how it's on a steady-ish decline since Iso shut down...

and that decline appears to be continuing about a month later. i'm thinking that guilds can't come out fast enough for the folks over at goko.

Innovation declines also.  Might be the weather...
Yeah, I can't see anything on my screen when the sun is switched on.

Only if there's a big marketing push to start (which for Goko, of course, there was). For a game like isotropic Dominion, people will gradually discover it over time, which offsets the people who discover it and get bored, at least for a while.

The flood of players from isotropic Dominion to isotropic Innovation is essentially a marketing push too, so a drop-off there wouldn't surprise me.

If I stare at it long enough will the green line fall to zero and the blue line come back?

I have to admit my empathy with all those who are going on about how they miss Dominion is kinda limited.
There's nothing that should stop you from playing on Goko, it's working pretty well by now.

That's not true, if I would get money from them I maybe would even start playing...

I have given it a few chances, and while I will give them credit for improving, it was a pretty poor experience.  I will hop back on for another go once they solve ratings/matchmaking.

That is clearly the biggest ball drop by goko in my opinion.  I know this has been discussed ad nauseum in other places, but their lobby system is just such a failure.  One main lobby, only show open games, be able to see everyone online at once, automatch, etc...  You'd think they would have learned by now to do what the customer wants but clearly they are taking their jolly sweet time to do things by having the lobby be essentially everything that the customer doesn't want.

Hello.  Name's Bruce.  It's all right.  I understand.  Why trust a shark, right?

Is quite curious - Who is the mystical "Celestial Chameleon"?

This has been said way too many times, but

Goko isn't that bad, but it's only tolerable with the extension, which isn't a great sign.
Base only games are okay, but they tire out really fast.
I'm not willing to spend money on all cards until matchmaking is implemented, which is absolutely the biggest issue.

I don't have any beef with the rating system, it seems like its accuracy is on point, and the only issue is that the variance is a bit higher than it should be.

Edit: I mean the Pro rating system. It feels like I gain too many points for playing Casual games. I was ranked ~6k, I played a casual game with someone ~2k, and I got almost 100 points for a win, which seems bogus. But people who are serious about ranking up in Dominion should only care about Pro anyway.

Well, there's the small problem that if I forced myself to engage with that interface for more than 20-30 minutes in a day, there's a high probability I would accidentally murder someone.

And then I'd be stuck in prison, with no way to play Dominion.

The main reason I didn't play Goko before wasn't that it was bad, I was boycotting them. And then I just had to start playing there in order to practice for the national champs. And then it was just useless to continue the boycott so now I sometimes play a game or two there.
