EVE is not the only game that people say stupid things about. From everyone’s favorite comments section, I give you this gem:
Linking apparent server populations to subscriber numbers might be an indicator, but in reality, it’s really just conjecture, voodoo science, guesswork.
For example, my SWTOR sub is good thru May, but I’ve been doing other things and have barely been logged in for a full hour in weeks . Mild winter/early spring also moves folk to spend less time at the computer.
That’s right folks. SW:TOR numbers are WAY DOWN not because the game sucks as an MMO (and seemingly, as a game overall), but because.
Wait for it.
The winter was mild.
And have you noticed that, in particular, Sunday’s have been mild? EAWare can’t compete with mild winter Sunday’s. Sometimes you make a great game with amazing retention, and god deals you a rough hand and strings a bunch of warn Sunday’s together to foil your master plan.
This also further proves that EVE players are all sociopaths. Look at this chart. Clearly despite warn Sunday’s, EVE players would rather participate in torture (play EVE) than get a tan or do some yard work. Losers.
PS: Wormhole for 800m should make for some interesting blog posts coming up.
Edit: Suicide watch update.
You will get to hear it from the horses mouth in May that is the next investor call …try not to fling yourself off a building or anything after the announcement.
I’m sure Massively have contacted the police to ensure everyone that comment was aimed at has not killed themselves, and will perma-ban Dunraven_. I also fully expect EG, RPS, CNN, and Obama to address the issue later tonight.
