Regardless how much I hate this new expansion (and yes I really think it's rubbish), I do love Eve and wanted to make the point that if this game is to expand, then CCP does need to make a decent amount of money. Good developers are very expensive I am sure, as is probably the hardware needed to run this thing. Not to mention that I also think CCP should be well rewarded financially for what they have created over the past 10 years.

I have no idea what CCP's financials look like, what their budget is, nor what their business plan is for the next few years. What I do know is that RTM is very unlikely to have a positive financial impact given the feedback to date. I also think CCP should finally recognize this by now...

There needs to be a way though for this game to either gain a lot more critical mass or alternatively for players to be willing to pay higher sub fees. Incarna as presented in this last expansion doesn't quite seem to be the way forward, so any ideas what would be? How can CCP get say, 1m subs within 3-5 years?

This thread is really to see if there are any good ideas out there. I am sure CCP will appreciate some constructive feedback (although I must say they haven't been very constructive so far on their end).

Any ideas?

i dont know about that

They called it their golden goose and are more concerned about it fueling large investments in other titles.

If they focused on ship balancing and tweaking sov mechanics every few weaks instead of every few years, moved away from any graphics additions and decided to make what they have ever lighter to allow large fights with little lag, they'd maintain a nice stable user base and probably be able to get by with less employees and expenses each year .

a nice little golden goose, with a profit margin.. an annuity...not some enginewhere 30% of revenue could be used for other projects.

Gotta remember who CCP's Cheif Financial Officer is now, one Mr. Joseph Gallo, here is a his Linkedin (about 2/3rds of the way down. Notice what he did before CCP? Managing Director, Investment Banking at Citygroup, this dirty f a g g o t was hip deep into the c r a p that casued the Global Financial Crisis, you can bet its twits like him who are pushing for MT in EVE.

CCP can gain a lot more critical mass improving the Payment Methods in local money across a lot of countrys, but no, they are inmerse in a World of Fantasy where they are Experts Money Makers like Donald Thrump, or Bill Gates, or IKEA, or ...
