Hi marketing peeps and CCP Seagull.

While you are doing a lot to make this game more attractive to new players/customers -

Why do you think your current customers are leaving ?* Ugh

*this is what I boiled it down to, after hours of reading up on recent and potential changes to Eve online and weeks of team-speak convos filled with sorrow, complaints and the honest fear of a beloved toy being no longer available soon.

Older customers are rage quiting because their 'win at everything now' button is slowly but surely being removed. But they'll be back within the year. I guarantee.

Looking at their track record, I kinda don't want them to overhaul mining anymore....

CCP - Building ant hills and magnifying glasses for fat kids

Not even once

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Oh, boy! Another well-considered, meticulously researched (yeah, right) EVE IS DYING THREAD.

IB4 digital alteration.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

Stand down CCP, I've got this one.

Te answer is "ALIENS, clearly ALIENS."

Next question.

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

Built by CCP

let´s look at the life-blood of this game:
players on tranquility

within a 5 year period, eve had an average of 50.000
the previous year saw an average of 39.000 (factored into the 50k 5y avg, this is a drop of more than 25% )
the past quarter 30.000 (another 25% loss)
and february ´15 was at 25.000 players online per day (44.000k in 2014, adjusted about 40% loss)


This is looking like more than Ebb and Flow - even with seasonal effects billed in.

I must have missed the 50k average years. Please cite your source.
