MOTHER Manga: Believe
July 28th, 2012 | MOTHER 3
A common question I get to this day is “Hey, how many downloads has the MOTHER 3 translation patch had?” So I thought I’d post an answer here for easy reference.
The quick answer has almost always been: “Nobody knows anymore.”
Just before we released the patch we were worried the sudden spike in traffic would kill the translation site, so we decided to mirror the site in a few places, the main one being on Amazon’s S3 storage system.
It turned out, though, that S3’s logging data reset itself every few days (at least that’s how it worked back then, I don’t know about now), so we only had any real data for the first couple days/first week or so. The last accurate number we had within that short timeframe was over 100,000 downloads, all download stats after that are completely unknown, only the universe knows. Also, immediately after the patch went live people everywhere mirrored it elsewhere, so we have no way of tallying those numbers either.
So in the end we know it’s a big number, but there’s no way to know an exact number anymore.
