Every game has alts. But each sub brings in the same revenue as every other sub, alt or not. 400k subs is still the 5th* Largest Subscription base of Western MMOs (inc ftp Runescape and Second Life which, as ftp, are really in a different category when talking sub numbers).

How the hell is having the 5th largest subscriber base among western MMOs and 3rd among Paid Western MMOs staying "small?"


*apparently I can't always count to 5 accurately.


I cant think of another mmo where people would have multiple " alt accounts " not talking about alt characters.


Try answering the question before you throw out a red herring.

No, it shows that this game is way above other MMOs. In EVE you have to think about the consequences and not just mindlessly get the best 'gear' in-game and own everybody else.

This, a thousand times this. I can't count the number of times I've contemplated dropping a few dozen billion on my mission Tristan only to come to the realization that there is no reason to play this game and unsub my 5,000 accounts instead.

Poor gankers. Two Estamel's invulns failed to drop.

Wut?


What dont you understand? pvpers have plenty of space to pvp in.... lowsec and 0.0.... oh and wormholes.... why cant pve'ers have a safe zone to pve?


i know quoting from the first page but i came up with a good answer :D

PvP is player v player
PvE is player v eve
eve is everyone v everyone else

so everywhere has to be PvP'able in eve or it'd have to get a new name

EvE is currently the third largest paid Western MMO on the market. One and Two are held my Blizzard and LucasFilms. They would seem to have other things going for them besides game quality. EvE doesn't.

So, then what makes EvE special? What makes it stand out from other MMOs in such a way that it gets more subs every single year?

What's different? Integrated PvP.

No, what's different is that by playing the game, you can earn isk that pays for your gametime. It's essentially a free to play model where you can keep full access unlike other FTP models. Someone is paying for your upgrade by buying a PLEX, but it's not always you. Remove PLEX, and the gameplay wouldn't hold up without really going FTP.

With the increase in shiptoasting, the Report timer needs to be shortened.

Big smile What part of 'Everything you do in EVE is PvP' do you not understand?


LOL I like how you call this killmail pvp......


The nighmare pilot was killed by other players. Player vs player seems the correct term to use given that it was a player vs player event.

I think the number of heat sinks is defensible, since he clearly didn't need more tank. The amount of ISK he spent on that shitfit is, of course, indefensible.

... and the mids are pretty bad regardless of cost.

wut?
There is no excuse to fit 4'th/5'th dmg mod over dual tracking enhancers, especially when you look at how awesomesauce tobias TE's are.

20% tracking each omnom
