I am not big on space games, so never really played it.  I also did not like the idea of people having a higher point cap or something along those lines for being vets...Nothing big, but I would like to be on a even footing, if I put the time in to do so, but you cannot age your account, no matter how much you play.  People have debated if this mattered, but it turned me off a little.

 

Congrats though, good to see them chugging along and growing.

 

It doesn't matter if the average person has 1.5 to 2 accounts, because if you think that, then it also means it is impressive to grow, considering that every person that leaves, they have to also get new customers, and either have more single account customers to replace the multi-account person that left, or make the new person like it enough to get multi-accounts.....Either way it is working for them.

I mean, since you repeatedly state that as fact, you've got a source you can share, right, Scav?

lmao come on now there is no way you can denie that players do shadowbox or in anouther words run two accounts at the same time. Other MMO's allow it like hmm lets say WoW they love to let players run 2 or more accounts at one time. So I can very easy believe that EVE players will do the same.

Can you prove that they dont?

Well, yours truly has been running 1 account for several years now, so the number is already wrong :P.

That said, I've met people running 10 paid accounts, so it could be even less unique people.

(Does it really matter? I think not.)

point is...

 

"the playerbase was different back then"

"those days are gone"

"it's nostalgia talking"

 

it's all bullshit. a 10 years old niche game is growing like clockwork. The excuses these forums make are great at hiding the fact that newer mmos suck but cant xplain why eve's playerbase is growing instead of shrinking.

 

it doesnt matter if its 500k, 250k, 20 or 2m. it's growing. 10 years after release. while the industry as a whole is not growing.

 

this says a lot about the power of not giving in to the new fads. f2p, social platforms, cross-platforms, handheld stuff...has it worked yet ?

Real nerds have up to 7 or even 8 accounts in EVE. I know, since I did when I played it. 2 were financed by credit card, rest by money created by those two I paid for. And it's not uncommon that nerds like myself are often around.

But in the end the number of people playing it does not matter much since every account is money in the bank for ccp. They created a beautiful universe which they tried to destroy with their multiple bad decisions over the years (not intentionally, it's just lack of maturity on ther side) but now they seem to be getting it right (all over again like in the first years).

I would say real number of active people is around 200k, which is more then enough to have extremly stable universe. Do not forget EVE is one universe and not 5k per server like with other games. A mmo can lif off with 5k per server already and EVE has a population of a town.

Good luck CCP.

No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

it is amusing watching them try to reconcile the facts with theem knowing that everything about EVE is wrong. The best ones are when they simply accuse CCP of outright lying.

BTW the best examples are actually in the DUST 514 forum here. There are some dudes in there who are desperate for Dust to fail.

i was in a small mining corp, there was about 8 players with a single account, and 1 guy with like 5.. so.. it probably averages out at 2 per...

every decent 0.0 capital pilot/spy/industrialist runs >3 accounts, simple.

Well just like someone stated above I have only 1 account and better yet only 1 character :P I am not the norm I know but most have between 2-3 accounts and the 1 offs like me aren't that rare either so even factoring in the extreme cases (5-6 accounts, though having more than 3 is really counterproductive since CCP are violently against bots/macros) the game population should be around 250k-300k active players which makes sense because as an old veteran of EVE I can tell you in 2007 you'd get a peak of around 30k users online and ~20k around non-peak times, nowadayys it seems that non-peak has doubled and the peak is around ~47k ish on a single server. To put that in perspective there are no systems anywhere in EVE-Online that does not see activity at least once a day, the only exceptions being C6 wormholes and maybe some C5s, compare that to WoW where you have entire zones on medium pop server which are dead as a doornob and you get the idea.

From almost every reply of yours on this forum I get the feeling English is a second language for you as there's the words on the screen and then there's your interpretation of them. No one has ever questioned that there are some players with more than one account in MMOs. EVER. 

Scav stated that "almost everyone who plays EVE has 2+ accounts."  I'm interested in what he is basing that on. If it's anecdotal, fine, but then that also means his conclusion about the actual number of players is an uneducated guess, as well.

When Eyjo relayed a while ago that the least traveled system still has 400 pilots passing through it a day, I found that an incredible statistic considering the number of systems and how remote some of them are.

That's because in high-sec you have 3/10 and 4/10 plex exploration to do which can reward you 200-300 mil isk with a lucky drop in 30 min of work and explorers go for less travelled areas for higher chances to get something, in low sec again there's exploration which in this case refers to radars and magneometric sites because they can be worth 30-40 mil a pop for next to no danger or effort, in 0.0 you have ratting in NPC 0.0 (for officer and faction spawns), pvp, mining, high level exploration and in conquerable 0.0 it's pretty much the same but without the chance of officer spawns (that big anyway) and as for wormhole space as long as it is relatively accessible you'll have people running around trying to kill each other and get sleeper loot.

Playing since 2009 and running no more than one account. That said, it doesn't really matter how many players a game has if the population is large enough, which is the case in EVE.
