Whatever happened to the Quarterly Economic Newsletter?

The last QEN I can find is from Q4 2010. Q1 2011 should have been out over a month ago.

I am particularly concerned to see the subscription numbers, as in-game signs (e.g. concurrency numbers on the login screen) seem to indicate the subscription base is shrinking drastically.

Please stop spreading disinformation, the game isn't dieing, and how well the quarterly economic newsletter is doing is not in direct relation to the overall health of the game. In fact the average login rate for the game, while it did drop for a little bit, is steadily on the rise, and in good health. There are several changes coming to the game that will prove to be very beneficial, and the fact that ccp is willing to listen to its customer base, even if it's not in the time frame that people want is a good sign that the game will be strong in the future. Expect it to be back when the development team has addressed more pressing issues.

How well the QEN is doing has no relation to the health of the game. I never said it did. Please bother reading my post before accusing me of spreading disinformation.

What I *did* say is that I would like to see the population numbers which are regularly published in the QEN. Those population numbers are rather obviously related to the health of the game.

(Edit: wrong character on this post, sorry. I am the OP).

QEN should be soon hopefully. Theres a treasure trove of data in them.

QEN went the way of the outer ring political summary: Basically it actually required someone at CCP to take time off from designing new space clothes for you to buy and expend a little bit of effort, so it inevitably died.

I don't want to get into a flame war, but I think you should read your original post again.

"I am particularly concerned to see the subscription numbers, as in-game signs (e.g. concurrency numbers on the login screen) seem to indicate the subscription base is shrinking drastically."

To clarify what you are saying is. You wish to see the numbers in the QEN so you can see how the game is doing regarding subscribers because when you log into the game, the numbers you see tell you that less people are playing.

Now you don't need the QEN to tell you how many people are logging in on average over time to the game, there are plenty of resources online that compile this data from the server that let you know how the game is growing.

While I might have been a little over zealous with my post, I more or less wish to point out that there are other ways to get the numbers you want without the QEN.

CCP killed it.


Rather sad as i always looked forward to those....
A QEN orignialy got me into eve after reading how in depth the game was...

CCP is to short sighted and simply killed a popular item...I hate to be one of the forum guys QQing but it was killed to provide space bardie cloths as that is where development time is going. Specifically the good Dr. is helping with prices for that segments and the aur price market...so no time to do the QEN
