I just cancelled my subscription (1 account) after taking the time to consider all that has transpired.

The final decision to cancel was that I'm starting to feel that I'm just wasting my 15/month on training schedules. The fiasco with the overpriced 'MT' store, overhyped Captain's Closet that didn't even work for me (apart from setting my GPU into meltdown-mode) and 'Greed is Good' didn't help matters either.

At any rate I would like to wish everyone a fond farewell. It's been a great year and I'm happy to have been a part of this community; if only for a relatively short time. Wink

Cheers!

I also can't help but wonder how many of the people who posted in this thread claiming to have "unsubbed 5+ (or whatever number) accounts" actually have more than one.

Also, 45000+ players online atm.

Is it over? I think it's over.




Read Statistical Analysis of Server Activity. Yes, the server population is decreased since Incrappa was released.

Very interesting site with that post - the number certainly are worrisome. But I'd venture that new player recruitment has been stagnant with the failure of Incarna's launch and all the drama around it. Many new players will investigate the forums of an MMO before actually purchasing the game. I use trials for this all the time - naturally forums aren't a picture perfect view of a game, far from it really, but it DOES highlight events.

If you were scanning the forums of a potential mmo...and saw the disaster that was Incarna and it's handling, then googled anything related to monocles...would you have signed up for EVE? This won't turn away all new players, but it will dampen the recruitment. Not nearly as many little kids come looking at EVE as adult gamers, so you have to take into consideration that the recruit audience is more intelligent and more likely to look into games as an investment - and thus do a little R&D before deciding.

Cancelling 5 accounts.

Reasons:
-NEX and Aurum are still in the game
-No real apology from CCP received for the communication debacle
-We get expansions that deliver no content or are abandoned shortly after release and not developed further (Wormholes; Factional Warfare; PI broken for days and no reimbursement...)
-Bugs and "Features" are not fixed for years
-Friends switching over to Perpetuum Online in masses

No, i might play again in the future, if CCP sorts their mess out and if the playerbase comes back.
EVE without friends is no fun.

As it stands now we feel that we are no needed customers to CCP. It is up to CCP now to sort this out.

I announced much earlier on in this thread I was canceling two of my three accounts, the first of which went inactive today, the second follows at the end of of next month.

Overall, my main reason is the fail of understanding of 'micro' in micro-transactions.

Much angst in this thread.

-1 account at the moment, both other accounts are off the auto billing and i'm still debating whether or not to keep them on plex.

Speaking for myself, the main reason i am uninterested in this game at present is because, primarily, lack of interest. The game is now dull. Incarna was the tipping point - the major downtime, the installations failing, then losing all my settings, having to rebuild all of that hassle stuff you sort out over time...

Then,. the realisation that incarna, which they had been using as the excuse for not having resources to fix bugs and follow through on their promises of iteration (dominion, faction warfare, all the things they promised they would do after they bedded the first bit of each expansion in), it was all for what? 18 months of hype, walking in stations....

We got slightly prettier character portraits and a closet that a lot of people have switched off. Zero content, zero additional interaction, and in many places, people have lost things, settings, overviews, time, ship spinning.

If you're only logging in once every two days, for a while there, you were getting hit with a new patch to download each time you logged on, due to terrible quality control. Worse if you played on two different computers. It was a horrible pain in the ass. So I started playing world of tanks... instant fun. And for deeper gameplay, i discovered by not paying 3 subs, i can afford to buy non-MMOs. These games have an additional benefit : when the wife starts talking to you, you don't have to block her out because you have some FC yelling at you on the headphones. You can hit pause!

I haven't played eve in almost 2 years. I resubbed a little over 2 weeks ago largely because of the incarna drama. No publicity is bad publicity I suppose.

I am not continuing my subscription, though not because of the MT. I'm leaving eve once again because the game has stagnated. The only new 'content' that has been added since I last played have almost no effect on my gameplay. Incursions are fine and all, PI is pretty cool I guess, CQ is a joke but that we already know. What really bothers me are the ships. They haven't been fixed, or even looked at as far as I can tell. There are still so many useless ships that simply take up space on the market. If all CCP did was change some numbers around with a few ships, namely most T1 frigates and cruisers but there are many more, AF's for one. That alone would breathe a huge amount of life into the game for me.

Oh and another thing that I find funny after all this time, gallente players are still whining. Even that hasn't changed.Rolling Eyes

I'm definitely going to check back every now and then, eve has always had a special place in my heart. I just can't justify spending any money on it in its current state.

You convinced your wife to leave because you are upset you can't afford a monocle? I mean, mining especially got effected by this expansion. All the game breaking changes to industry, pvp, and pve. WOW mate, didn't have to talk long to help her with that decision.

Had 5 accounts, dropped to 4, then (per earlier post) decided to drop 2 of those 4. Now I've decided I'm actually going back to one.

Just want to give a big thank-you to everyone here for leaving.

Tobiaz your heroism and the heroism of the people in this thread will do far more to make this game a better place than was imaginable a even a few short weeks ago. Its a tough thing to have to go through this sort of thing, but it happens to even the best of games.

Once a community gets so ignorantly stupid it can really seem like there's no turning back. You scratch your head and wonder where did all these idiots come from? You read the forums in kind of a stunned silence as you try and comprehend the amount of stupid; nothing makes sense.

Hopefully with your sacrifice we can move on to a better community, a better game.

Thanks.

As already mentioned in a previous post, -3 accounts, and I've not changed my mind...

One is already expired, and the two others will end next month (were all on 3-month billing cycles).

This account will be kept active since I got a stash of 30+ PLEX to use. I DID consider putting them in an Ibis and flying around Jita to see how soon I'd get killed, but decided to spend them instead Razz

Cancelled 2 accounts, however they will expire in september. This game could be the best, but it makes me nervous when I play it. Boring, lack of game design, dumb slow nonuserfirendly unintelligent UI, boring pve, no fair and small scale pvp, boring PI, boring mining. I'll come back when CCP realise that they need to design the gameplay, eleminateing bugs, instead of making that stupid "Future of EVE" concept that they showed on fanfest.

The only thing that I have to "complain" about Incarna, is the lack of ship apparel customization.
Just that...

"This game will be better when me and all my Russian bot friends in 0.0 are the only people left playing it, and we'll all be happy as pigs in a blanket with RMT paid supercaps, and noone left to fight so we hotdrop soloists, because all I want to do is run drone sites all day and complain about players who are actively involved and are tired of stagnant uninspired exploitative gameplay"

WE all loved this game when we started. It takes a while before the glow wears off. After time you will start to see the problems with the game and rather than seeing a huge universe you will see it as boring identical solar systems with nothing really different or exciting about them. I know when i read this thread i nod in understanding at most of the replies and sigh. I wish i was only just starting and had that eve is great feeling like you have. Enjoy it while it lasts :)
