Hey,
Autumn seems to be when eve population increases, last year we had the alpha clone influx and i wondered if anything is being done this year to increase numbers?

It’s called “Vacation is over, back to your jobs, school, no more beaches, no more trips and go back to whatever MMO you play to spend your time in the house” imo

It’s also back to school where a lot of college age kids are back where they can log in from their dorm rooms and have a decent connection instead of home where maybe the wi fi works well enough.

I feel so … different when so many people say they have more time for MMOs when vacations are over.
I have little time for MMOs outside of vacations … I always scratch my head when people explain low player count with vacations.

The most common reason is that players during the summer typically want to take advantage of their free time to hang out with the family or have some fun or play Pokemon Go, etc, being productive with their body and social skills.

Now, people that got more time, even during Summer, are generally the ones that don’t have that many people to go out with or socialise or generally just do not enjoy going outdoors. Like me!

And we do need to keep in mind that EvE has (probably, didn’t check recently) a higher player age average than most games
