No, Eve is not dying a few botters got kicked, some peoples machines blew up after CQ and the rest have spontaneously combusted after moaning too much on the forums.

Eve is still Eve and always will be.

What I found interesting is that as soon as Eve really started to go into terminal decline this year, all the "Eve is dying" threads suddenly dried up!

Why is that me wonders......

Another eve is dying is thread. yawn

More importantly: am I the only one that finds it weird that eve-offline charts time going from right to left. I've seen many charts in my life, and its the first time I've seen it done like that.

In my experiance getting rid of the rif raf nerd rage population that is always on the fence ready to quit the game over every small offense is a good thing. So I would say quite the oppossite, Eve is going to be living better once enough people quit, in particular people who get their rocks off on posting stupid **** like you.

Traditionally this happens for three reasons.

1. Its a wake up call to the Devs to get their **** together. When the numbers drop, investors start calling and they want to know why they are making less money. The Devs will investigate and instead of the cry babies (like you) they will have their core audiance guiding them.

2. Like the American economy and any inflated system, when it grows to large it becomes broken. Eve isn't broken because the mechanics are not good, its broken because their are two many ******* people and the game (while technically can carry them) cannot support them via its game mechanics infastructure. Their is too much of everything because their are too many people.

3. Old Games Need Maintenance: The problem with Eve is that its a old game that CCP is trying to keep fresh. So they are still trying to do the whole visionary thing by moving forward. Its too late for that. Eve is now an aged game and it needs to go into maintenance mode where the Devs focus on fixing long standing bugs, fixing up mechanics with existing issues and focusing on the game play elements on which the game is founded (like flying in space). When people start quiting, if enough do, they will go into maintenance mode and stop ******* around (though just want to say thanks for the character creation tool in Incarna, I think I got myself to look like Wesley Snipes as intended)

So there ya have it. Go on and quit.. the more quit the better.

The game wont die but surely is declining, quality and population wise. The thing in EVE that really dying is this forum, not because the recent change but because the most people that post on it. This is far from the forum i knew at 2007/09/10, we always had trolls, its impossible to prevent and eliminate that but atm is unbearable.

If the "cry babies" you are talking about are those who have been in a uproar over the recent changes, direction, and lack of development then I believe you have who the "core audience" backwards. The ones who are vocal about CCPs mistakes are usually the ones who actually care about the game more then those who stay quiet and let it go under.

Eve is broken because Eve mechanics are broken. Its not just because Eve is inflated, there are many things that actually do BETTER when theres inflated numbers(FW for example), however because of fail development and broken mechanics it actually draws people away from it. Also if a system doesn't scale based off of numbers then it is broken, unless CCP developed Eve to have a population cap they should have planned for raising numbers.

This is another fail ideology. While Eve is a somewhat old game as far as MMOS go, Eve being in a niche market as well as being a sandbox means that age really doesn't matter. Eve is not a standard MMO where once you get the level cap up high enough and released enough dungeons that things start to become redundant and its time to move on.. Eve could easily survive for 8 more years and continue to rise in subs. This would however cause CCP to actually start polishing up the actual core features of the game as well as add more content to keep things fresh.

Eve is far from needing to be placed in maintenance mode. However it seems CCP has a similar ideology and is causing its own downfall.

You'll need a Dev Blog for that, with some actual content, that actually delivers the promises it makes...not going to happen any time soon.

Self-fulfilling prophecy unfortunately, CCP wanted more players without doing a obligatory IQ test and boy did we get them!
