Hi there,

Please stop supporting CCP, they have given up on EVE online.

The reason i know this is because they only focus on Ship rebalance which is boring and they only do it to give the impression that somthing changes. Oh and they also tend to slip in a new skin or special edition ship here and then. Its pathetic. Please stop giving them money.



Done. Just canceled. Toodles.


Wait! Can I have your stuff too?

There are only two facts that can be established.
One is the PCU, the other CCP's financials.

The two are in conflict.
The PCU demonstrates a definite, sharp, and ongoing decline in PAYING customers.
The 2016 financials show a healthy CCP.

Has CCP taken a page out the null sec cartel playbook and monetizing each account like never before?
Undoubtedly yes.

Can they maintain that profitability and squeeze even more from a shrinking player base?
We are going to have to wait for the 2017 numbers before we can pronounce Eve dead.


Yep. CCP knows which way the wind is blowing in terms of PCU. Wouldn't surprise me if they follow Blizzard's lead and remove the server population display from the launcher and prevent third parties from obtaining that information. It's more damaging to have your declining player count advertised than it is to stop publicising the figures.

Started in june 07 1 account by 2011 I had 7 and slowly dropped them one by one over the next 4-5 years...Now I have no sub's at all one main account I don't even log in anymore and the 2nd alpha that's just for ***** and giggles.

Its Friday peak time and less than 20k players.....If that doesn't say something for the state of the game I don't know what does.

Pretty much everyone I started with is gone.....90% of the people I played with in the last few years gone.....

I loved this game I really did, played it well over 30,000 Hours easy. Made billions and still have billions but CCP has **** all over vets and new bros to the point people just said f-it....

If CCP would have made good on the "letter" Himlar wrote about 3 years ago **** would be golden but as we can all see it was total B.S.

I honestly can't name one thing that was the cause, the list would be pages long of the crap over the years that has turned people away myself included. Almost every aspect I enjoyed is nerfed to **** or just out right gone....

Maybe one day CCP will wake up or sell the I.P. to someone who cares to save a sinking ship but as it stands now I won't be holding my breath as they have ignored pretty much all of us this whole time anyway.


P.S. no you can't have my stuff I would rather trash it.....

This game began long before 2003 and it will continue long after Tranquility is a pile of junk in a landfill in Kenya. You can despair-quit if you want to, but we all know there is only one way out of this game. And when you do finally log out, please send my regards to oblivion. I hope to still be playing then and for as long as I can afterward.

Fly safe.
Live long and prosper.
And may the force be with you.

I'm surprised they haven't done it already but maybe they just don't care any more - the current stats paint a fairly pointed finger at what they are doing wrong.

Interestingly there isn't a shortage of uptake of new players - in fact outside of specific peaks its as strong as its ever been yet there is still a strong downward trend in any objective activity metric that the alpha clone thing only momentarily stalled but its back in force now.
