87,000.00 USD lossed revenue per month against the 5.25 million they pull off each month with 350,000 subscribers is only about a 1.7% loss. 1.7% doesn't matter to a company that makes millions a month. They'll be looking at the long term effects these next few months. If players continue to desubscribe every month for a continual downward rend, then it "MIGHT" matter.
I support this thread, but I don't think it will make a damn bit of difference to CCP. I've lost faith in their management completely. I feel sorry for the Devs who are just along for the ride, it seems that even their opinons didn't matter in the face of projected numbers in profit after the release of MT. Management decided to back this convoluted nonsense that their new supposed marketing "professionals" spewed about MT heaven, individuals who had only been hired for less than a year, over Developers who had been with the company since it's inception.
Greed IS Good, I guess.
If you ask me its more like
55,000 people used to log in on the weekends, 45000 on weekdays, now its like 40k/30k. A lot more than 1.7% of the daily server population is missing.
Its not SWG yet...
Came here to leave SWG behind - Ahazi server - you?
I know you weren't asking me, but Eclipse here. I still check up on swg from time to time, I Think that sony has actually updated SWG's mechanics more than CCP has updated EvE lately. Sad thing, that.
Im one of the many subscribers that got shafted by the 2 ******ed updated that made Jedi a starter profession.
