Well, numbers were real. But!

Most of that growth was just new ISK farming alts, that 0.0 players did train/buy after CCP brought new sov system with massive load of sanctums and ABC ore.

Remember providence before Dominion? Total crap, only CVA wanted it. AFter Dominion soon CVA died and lost the space, because it became desirable! Profitable space.

Now CCP switched again, and sanctums are gone in that scale. Result is that 0.0 pilots did get rid of their ISK farming alts, stopped paying them with PLEX. That's why numbers did get reduced so fast.

Total player number didn't increase after Dominion, only number of accounts and alts. I am prett sure that someone predicted this before DOminon, can't remember the name of that char...

I love that picture.

I think it's in my top 5 favorite things on the internet.

(yes, 1-4 involve free videos and pictures of human mating)

And this is a bad thing how? I'd rather have more alts funding this game then MTs.

Also thats not necessarily true. One reason is that since Dominion allowed alliances to make better use of more systems means they where more willing to allow more pilots and newer players into their ranks. Once 0.0 got nerfed again you couldn't support many people per system, so you scaled back recruiting to avoid issues with people trying to make money. Since the good systems where getting to crowded.

I see the normal forum defenders are in attendence.

I was one of you once upon a time but luckily I eventually came to my senses and bailed.

Most of us who bailed are happily playing another game with territory maps and highly accessible very enjoyable skill based pew pew.

Take some advice and don't waste any more money on eve until the devs get past this money grab carebear phase to fund the new world of darkness cash cow.

Alas this may be never.

Eve. I used to know you well. Sad

That's not why CVA lost their space, although some of their leadership liked to pretend it was. If -A- attacked them in order to gain their newly profitable space, it does seem odd that they immediately gave it away. They didn't even rent it.

CVA lost their space because they picked a fight they couldn't finish; they broke a Non Invasion Pact with -A- whilst -A- were fighting elsewhere. and they even refused an offer to return to the status quo ante after it became clear that -A- was going to beat them.

In short: they lost because of their own hubris.

Are you talking about that robot game? What amazes me is they don't even have a publisher. Yet look all they've done.. why can't CCP do an expansion with that much content.. heck, hire these Hungarians!
