what do ya mean try to keep disco going
It’s not dying. But it’s hit middle age, started balding, grown a belly, and realised it’ll never look good on the dancefloor again.
AS a bitter vet I will say, quite a few people have come back since they nerfed jump fatigue. Also the lowest PCU has been steadily increasing. About 2 years ago the low point was 15k now the low point is a steady 19-20k.
But spaceships! Dont forget about spaceships! And spreadsheets! \o/
Also every “EVE is dying” thread needs this:
Then we’ll have EVE forever! Yay…unless one of us is Rick Grimes.
It’s great to see you again, Solecist.
Fact is everything dies. You start dying the moment you are conceived.
It is just a matter of time till Eve dies. But that is years away… probably another 15 at this rate.
i’ll give it 5 unless major change is coming.
Focus on having fun. We’re all dying including EVE.
Actually honestly, I wish that CCP would never or majorly intervene with Plex and the Plex price. I actually don’t like it when they make huge Plex sales and intervention. It should be a player driven economy!!!
Anyone’s thoughts or evidence on this?
Um, it is still players that buy and sell the PLEX that is advertised.
I don’t think that CCP injects Prepurchased PLEX into the market – outside of tourney prizes. Anyone seen this before?
Yes, Eve is actually dying.
Please for the love of god. Does anyone have super factual statistics and proof and graphs of eve is dying? I just cannot fully believe it until it is presented. I am trying to keep this rational…
CCP stopped publishing paid subs years ago when the sub rates started dropping. So CCP has the hard facts, but clearly they won’t answer. Also, CCP being a privately held company plays its financials really close to the vest. That being said, CCP had a banner year last year (in March 2017 “leaked” 2016 financials), that were very likely based on the Pay to Win model of skill injectors being introduced. It is now April, and I have heard no rumblings of the 2017 financials being leaked. They are the key to the health of CCP/Eve.
If the 2017 financials are bad, as many expect, that signals that the skill injector scheme was a one-time boost. But if they are bad, the chances that they will be leaked are much smaller than last year. Given the layoffs in the past 6 months, plus the selling off of the massive mistake of the VR arm, things are likely not rosy at all.
But few know for sure, outside of the company C-level, their accountants, CCP’s investors, and the RMT cartel leaders that CCP are in bed with.
By leaked you mean, publicly available as filed with the Directorate of Internal Revenue in Iceland right?
Nothing leaked about it and even marketforISK that publishes the yearly review acknowledges that right at the start of the analysis:
Of course, you are already predicting a change in 2017:
We’ll see soon enough.
Oh look the conspiracy guy calling others sociopaths…so much for that Fair Play Alliance thingy.
Eve will never die.
I was going to say since beta, but you’re probably right.
Well I a sense it may end up dying, when a game goes f2p with cash shop it is often a sign of a mmo dying.
So going f2p with cash shop is a desperate try to keep it alive, for some game it works for some games it does not., time will tell but if eve is not making enough cash it may end up dead because they can´t keep it alive with charity and no sorry veterans you can´t alone keep the game alive if you don´t wan´t a 100+ dollar sub for all your characters.
I seen mmos with bigger player base than eve die, so eve is not immune I mean why do you guys think ccp are trying to make other games? Well to keep eve alive but it that fails they may have to in the end hand in the papers for Bankruptcy.
But, those MMO’s were no doubt being produced in America or Europe, with help of Investors who were probably relying on financial forecasts to determine how their investments were doing.
EVE Online is being produced in a country with a currency valued lower than the Rupee!!! for christsakes!
there’s no telling how low their subscriber base can go before they start feeling the pinch.
What I find more interesting is CCP’s attention deficit disorder. They pay no attention to EVE Online and have no plans for it, meanwhile they waste more money and more time on Virtual Reality and they even tried a Trading Card Game!, both of which get scrapped!
Always makes me think of that line from an episode of the Simpsons.
“Why make 32 flavors when you can’t even get Vanilla right?”
