Arena populations

does anyone know many people are in the gold/onyx divisions? i’m in gold and was just wondering how i sum up compared to everyone esle. is onyx the top 10% and gold the top 25%? i know the placement into the divisions is based on true skill

Yes. Gold and Onyx together make up the top 25% of the system.

The percentages are:
5% Onyx, 20% Gold, 25% Silver, 25% Bronze, 25% Iron

I do not know the population numbers of Gold and Onyx division, but from the numbers I’ve seen on the Bungie online page throughout an average day, I’d say there’s around 8,000 to 12,000 unique players in the Arena (over 24 hours), so 25% of that is somewhere between 2,000 to 3,000 players.

thank you so much.

You’re welcome. I’ll probably be posting an Arena info thread/FAQ documenting this kind of information and more (taken from Optimatch) at some point over the next few days. Still waiting on a reply about getting it stickied.

cool i hope it happens man
