Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Gains 5.65 Billion Uruk Kills
Time sure has flown since the release of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and now Monolith Productions is here with some awesome stats surrounding the game.
In a post on its Facebook page, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor proudly proclaims that 5.65 billion Uruks have been slain, but with how well the game has done since launch, it seems that the developers are the only ones surprised. However, while that may be the most impressive statistic that Monolith Productions has come up with, it certainly isn't the only one. The development company posted an entire info-graphic on the statistics it has collected from its few months of gaming existence. So, let's just break it down a little bit.
Not only were there 5.65 billion Uruks slain (which the info-graphic points out is just about 5/7 of the Earth's population), but they were slain within a 74.6 million-hour period, which means that 76 Uruks are being slain every hour. Plus, the Uruks were helping us out by killing each other, with 1.3 billion slain by their allies. Then there were 200 million Uruks dominated and 7.3 million Graugs dominated.
However, no matter how many Uruks or Graugs were slain, there would be none if it weren't for the weapons in the game. The weapon of choice for 62.4% of players was the sword, Urfael, and it has, over time, accounted for 34% of total kills. Then there's 20% of people wielding the bow Azkar, 15% using the dagger, Acharn and 3% summoning wraith powers to overtake their enemies. If players ever did get killed by Uruks, there were 10.7 million times when they were able to come back and avenge themselves. While there was about one player death per hour, they also managed to take 78 Uruks with them.
