    keep believing the narrative

    total facedesk moment there.



    Dude, CCP doesn't give a single fuck about anything like that. It's a game of statistics, pure and simple. People are free to delude themselves, but CCP doesn't even give a single shit about this or that imaginary segment or deluded pressure point wannabee.

    Let it get through to you: what you call eve is a toolbox CCP goes to work with elsewhere.

    Guess what that says about those inside the thing. And every tool is expendable, replaceable, interexchangeable.

    Now ever since Disney started making movies about inanimate objects having a life of their own people seem to think that eve players since the summer of rage have influence, impact or anything of the sorts. Welcome to reality. Ask not what CCP can do for you, ask how CCP uses you no matter what. There was a point where CCP said "never again", and of all the things they have hardons for, upstairs that's the numero uno. They won.
    J'ai violé votre vaisseau spatial. C'était amusant....!

    EVE once was about internet spaceships. Then those became serious business.
    Now all that is left is serious business, and spaceships are docked for two years till after the Dust of Incarna

    It went on a bit long at the end and the JFK quote was a bit too American. But that is the most on point, concise thing I think you ever said.

    Well, let's see if he gets it. And accepts it. CCP's customers have zero means or ability to influence anything. Anyone who believes (!) otherwise is either deluding himself, or indirectly used by CCP in one way or the other. CCP has figured it out. With a little help from a friend and a few partner provided externals, but they won.



    Marlona, raise your glass to the eve variant of ST:O and swallow hard. Then fall in line like a good bit of statistic and restrict yourself to the itty bitty kindergartens of attribute tweaks or quit. Your dream of an emergent dynamic where the player is and creates the content, CCP provides for this and follows those trends, it's dead and gone.

    For once I almost wish I could point to the exact how / what / when / who, but we're not going down that road. Anyone with half a braincell can figure out the above.

    The magic number seems to be 30k. Those willing to login and play regardless of how good or bad the game is. So if CCP are happy with that, and those left playing are happy (at least, not being unhappy enough to quit), there's really nothing left to discuss or worry about re: eve online.

    The youth of today won't invest the time we did into it and the player base is ageing so I could see 5-10k of die hards hanging on to it until they keel over...

    Well, the alpha-bump seems to be over and current averages seem to be in the 20k range....

    http://eve-offline.net/?server=tranquility

    The graph shows that the alphas were quite short lived phenomenon and now we are back on the normal slide downwards with the added spice that some of the 20k average concurrent users are alphas instead of normal players.

    Eh, I fondly remember playing this game back when peak was like 10k. If I had more time I'd play EVE a couple hours every night.

    10k and growing is very different than 10k and shrinking.

    Anyone who wants small, medium or large fights has had a pretty good August

    Idk, the all time graph doesn't look catastrophic at all tbh.

    Nor have things stopped happening. For all the bitching and whining about citadels, it turns out that they're no barrier to people starting wars when they actually want to

    It occurred to me that probably the biggest single influence on the log in numbers over the last couple years is OoG chat channels like Slack, Discord, etc. Don't have to log in to chat to people now, only to actually do stuff.

    That's probably a big factor. I've been connected to my ally communication channel 24/7 over the past 18 months or so, thanks to nifty phone apps. It's pretty handy to know when you should disregard all road traffic rules on your home from work, because you get that "Titan tackled! Get in fleet!!!" ping only to find out that you were lured into a pos bash by the second best Irish FC of the alliance.

    Afaik kernel patching is just one out of 3 possibilities. But i guess i'll have a bash.
