Well I won't unsubscribe my account because I want my skills maxed out, but I'm actually almost not playing EVE. Only once a month settings new Battleship skill. But hey CCP look, I'll even summarize some statistics for you:

Statistics:
This post was started: 24/06/2011
This post was last edited: 30/06/2011
For the last edit of the post...
... 2589 people stopped playing EVE
... 5836 accounts was canceled
... ~15% reduction in online of active players
... ~87481,64$ reduction in monthly income

Observation:
Less then in week you lost around ~1.5% of total subscribers.
I'm afraid to think what happened for these last 2 month.
"Noble Exchange Store" is still too raw to be released.
"Captain Quarters" is still too raw to be released.
Cake is lie! But it was delicious... Really, it's truth!
The Holy rm -rf is an option too...

They don't like these features so they feel CCP should completely remove them so that no one has access to enjoy them.

Well, 2 accounts arent being reactivated, and this one is canceling in 9 days or untill CCP realizes EVE was the best MMO out there for specific reasons, not simply because it was the best.

Captian's Quarters are useless, and tbh, if CCP spent more than say 20 man-hours on it they wasted their time. The NEX Exchange i dont nessicarly have a problem with, but it could so easily evolve into a pay for bonus scheme it is probs too dangerous to have.

Microtransactions also make a game look kinda trashy, and one of the big selling points for EVE was that it was "clean", the only real thing that makes you different from someone else is your abilities and your friends.

The main thing that did it for me was the new guns. Sure they are cool, and they should have eventually been redone, but they fixed something that wasnt anywhere near broken, while there are hundreds of bugs and such that could be fixed so easily. Instead, they redo the gun models, a pure eye-candy change that will have no use in bringing in new players, and will probs annoy a few current ones into quitting.

CCP kept talking about their grand plans to fix the game post-Incarna. Incarna so far has added a loading screen, and about 4 or 5 min of amusement if one fully explores the Captian's Quaters. Not worth the hype WiS has been getting since I started playing in '08.

From the looks of things, EVE is now hemmoraging players after about 2 years of stagnation due to pointless and buggy expansions. I hope CCP will realise they are destroying their game before it is too late.

cq isn't an option like they promised for years
nex is ridiculous, not using it doesnt change that

indeed I don't like these 'features' as you call them, therefore I'm voting with my money.

This may be mentioned before, but canceling accounts doesn't mean people stop playing.

A lot of the people use their isk to get plex.

This affects the demand for plex, making the price of plex go up, that in turn makes more people buy more plex with real money to sell supporting CCP directly.

If i would add all these people into my watch list, i think i will still see a lot of them online.

Anyone care to test this out?

my main and alt are turning off due to poor customer support, and poor game support. ccp seems to think that im a QA tester for them, but im not.

also i have 10 friends and a total of 30 accounts between them all that have quit the game and turned off their accounts due to the same exact reasoning mentioned above.

ccp does not give a crap about its player base or eve apparently.

-32 accounts that i personaly know of and can confirm... and growing.

I have one word for you that will render all your sarcasm and this arrogance surrounding people unsubscribing useless.

I cancelled 2 accounts, the game sucks, low sec sucks, pirating is gate camping or PVP.

Make low sec worth something that null/high doesnt.

My subs dont run out for another 1-2 months, but I am done playing, am training my character but will probably "do" something with them soon.

The game is boring, population is down.

Let me see if I understand this correctly... CCP makes an in-game vanity store so people can "customize" their avatars and they can make some extra cash to fund development on other projects, and people are rage quitting eve because there's a possibility that they may implement non vanity items in the store?

I feel like I'm really missing something here... I look at the forums, and rarely see a page without at least 1 whine thread about how someone is quitting eve.

At the moment, there is nothing about incarna that I see as game breaking. I've seen a few undesirable "features" such as un-probable ships (most / all of which CCP has fixed). Also, this is 2011... If your machine can't handle the CQ, upgrade ffs. My rig is going on 2 years old, and I have absolutely no problem with it.

all ppl arent quit because of NEX, some are bored by the 'lack of all', 'the no perspective' and the 'WTF it's a bot'.

[Source]
From my point (early 2006 player inside), regularly the game downgrade, i've start to play with Red Moon Rising and since this time only 3 extensions have bring something 'cool' (Revelation I, Trinity and Apocrypha) other extensions are mess, nerf or help to turn this game into 'massive blob for all'.

so may be some of us are just tired but still in love about Eve and hoping for a better day or a sign of ccp

Good for you guys. In Hilmars own words "can tell you that this is one of the moments where we look at what our players do and less of what they say.".

Well there you have it, 5000+ accounts unsubscribed, so Hilmar... Since you aren't listening to the community, are you at least sticking to the promise of watching what they do?

While I would love to participate in the protest and cancel my two accounts, I simply love this game too much. Certainly I refuse to buy anything from the NEX store and I have turned of the Incursion CQ as my own way of protesting. But I do support this protest and just wanted to make it known.

unsub == "i'm too lazy to play now. i will play later at any time".

so all your "protest" == nothing.

Sorry for you

Exactly, unsubbing = nothing

Nothing for ccp that is, because they won't get any more money from me until they continue to develop eve and not wod, dust or nex items.
Perhaps they do that, when they are finished with the other 2 games, perhaps not. I can wait.
Doesn't cost me anything.

Why should ccp do anything if people delete their chars and accounts? These people won't come back, no matter what ccp does.

rofl, please, show me the data of all those people not only unsubbing, but not playing either. Do this by tracking the players. Also, i want you to keep a tally of botters that have been banned, and when/if they came back. Of course, your not going to do this because it would suck.

But...I know someone who probably is doing this. Their name you ask? CCP. Do they seem to care about the "5000 players" who left? No. Why do you think that is.

Take a moment, think it out.

I cant be bothered to play EVE like I did in the past.
I doubt ill be removing any stones from their graves anytime soon!
I know about dozen friends who just gave up on EVE all together.
so what one more dead account?

I'll never play EVE the way CCP Wants me too :)

I think that this thread is actually having the opposite effect that it was intended.... and here's why. Eve has over 350,000 subscribers. If in all its fury eve community looses 10,000 players in rage, it still has over 340,000 subscribers, so who cares if 10,000 players leave. It makes the puny number of unsubscribers look trivial. (I remember when there were only 30,000 subscribers in the entire game!).

If this is the worst of it then no big deal. They will fix the glitches and will probably get even more subscribers than was lost.

This thread should die.

oh... and can I have your stuff? Please send ingame isk to Yuuknow. Thanks!
