Socom has been around since 2003, but it's popularity shows no sign of letting
up. There are still regularly in excess of 20,000 people on at any given time
on the US Servers and in excess of 4,000 at any given time on the European
Servers. Socom's popularity relies heavily on the sense of community with clan
matches being one of the more interesting parts of the online game. One of the
key elements of online play that most players take interest in is their own,
and other players', statistics. These let you see how good you are -
statistically - when you play online.
