Calm down. I simply corrected myself when you pointed out that he did not mention new players which was a honest mistake on my part. Why are you getting so worked up over this?
Me pointing out that the talk of CCP Rise contained a section about subscription cancelation and only < 1% cited ship loss is a completely valid argument against his comment.
Please stop being so toxic and spam the thread with your nonsense.
I think a more reasonable source for the decline of EVE is the constant removal of content creating mechanics because of carebear demands that keep EVE getting more and more boring. Not everyone is happy with playing the extremely dull and linear PvE experience EVE offers.
Yeah, he said 1% of all replies they received cited that as cause for quitting but he failed to specify the amount of replies received. Was it 10, 100, 1000? That statement doesn’t give an accurate accounting, it’s misleading and open to interpretation.
It is 1% of all sub cancelation comments ever created as I understand it. That should be quite the number. We don’t have specifics though, but CCP has and their conclusion was that ganking is not an issue for retention.
seeing people loving that hig sec is not safe as people wish why not to the next best think remove all hig sec and concord I mean why gank people and lose ships to concord when you can get free rights to kill who ever you wish with no punishment ?
I mean people don´t Gank because they concord to kill them they do it because it´s fun right would it not be even more fun if you where not punished and only rewarded ?
You have not been watching very closely then have even I with only a little over a year in to this game has seen a large fall off of players . When I first came on EVE I always look at how many are online and it use to about 37000 on average ,but just over a years time that number has fallen to about 18000 . I have chatted with a lot of the new players that has come on to EVE and was saying they was leaving the game due to to much ganking in high sec . They are just not given a change to get started and most of them was ganked by Code members . I had even told the head of the Code what was going on and how many players was being lost and they did back off from ganking for a little while but it didn’t last long and they went right back to ganking new player they target new player because they know there easy prey . Myself I have lost about 170 ships due to ganking but I in it for the long haul . But on a positive note here in oh about 2 to months the player base will be going all of a sudden like 45000 more player will be on our server ,well I should say they are already here just not longed on lol . It will be interesting to see who survives this massive in incursion from another server

James must have forgotten to copy me into that evemail asking us to stop ganking lol . Also we do not target new players, we target non compliants some of which can be new but most are many years old and should know better.
And 170 ships lost to ganks how is that even possible unless you are running a massive bot farm, most folk learn after one or two losses.
