The latest eve newsletter has a link to the April survey results, also given here

http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/EVE_playing_behaviour?utm_source=newsletter77&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter77

Why do people start playing eve? The winners were a complex Sci Fi game with space exploration, with around 70%+ picking those.

And down at 25%? PvP.

It would appear that the survey takers were not drawn to eve by "the hard core PvP" but because its a Sci Fi game.

If CCP wants to attract more players, what should they concentrate on......

Its interesting that most people tend to play mainly alone.

Im suppose that this is highsec mission runners.

If they added more to avatar game play they'd get more people playing. This walking in closest is not helping much. Add more WiS to the game and they'd be pushing 100k plus subs easily - if not more.

Confirming that more people play with themselves in this game than don't. Smile

Interesting stuff. I'd like to see some stats on the player base abilities. I'd assume the average eve player is smarter than the average gamer/person, has 3x the determination, 2x the will power, and 10x the patience.

Progress... ...what is it?
Out here progress is numbers
Millimetres, kilometres,
Head counts, death tolls
This is progress.

Colonies burned
Ships destroyed
People killed
Money earned

It all comes at a price
and if the price is right

Do you mean subs or simultaneous accounts online?

Since the results of this survey show only 25 percent of players are interested in pvp, CCP should immediately make loading pvp modules require 20 clicks and a secret password while all exploration (67%) frigates get free cookies and a performance increase.

After all, surveys do not lie.

I gotta love this:

Reasons to subscribe to EVE:

(...)
PvP: 25%
Community: 17%
Corporations: 15%

Player style:
Mostly play solo: 16%
Usually play solo: 39%
As much solo as in a group: 25%
Usually in a group:15 %
Mostly in a group: 5%

Now, think of this: WHAT can you do in game if you're playing solo like 45% of the players do? And very specially... HOW LONG before being given the finger by the UNEXISTANT solo endgame? A clue: 54% of players have been in game for less than three years.

It's friggin' great. It turns that PvP is of marginal interest to new players, nullsec is a little bunch of freaks who barely appeal to 1 in 6 players, almost half the subcribers barely play with other players, half the players weren't here three years ago... and yet the whole EVE development revolves around fuking hisec, ignoring soloers and massaging nullseccer's hurt feelings.

Now please somebody come tell me that the survey was completed by hisec alts of l33t nullsec players. Roll

Wow lots of casual solo players Big smile

But to be fair it was a survey you had to read so allot of the PVP crowd probably missed that. Twisted

CCP also has seen the light, too:

Survey says… EVE is evidently rather solo-friendly!
