Normally I wouldn't care for Sub numbers in a game that I truely enjoy but recently all the activities records and that fact that since i've gone back to high sec its like walking into a shopping mall before Xmas.
Last year when I was playing Eve I would log in on strange hours (i don't usually play on NA or Euro prime time) and the activity would be 14-17k and when it did get busy it would be 24-28k (rarely above 30k).
Now I can log in at anytime and its over 20k at prime time its always above 38k and the weekends are steady 40-45+.
CCP is smart we can all see the sub numbers have grown. Make an alt and check out rookie chat their are over three thousand players in that chat always!
The regular Help chat, the Eve-uni public and recruitment chats are stacked.
All four trade hubs never have less then 500 pilots in them and the main one Jita is crazy stacked with 1200+ freaking pilots.
This is only High sec.....
I believe CCP is about to drop a bomb on us. I think after Apocrypha they will announce atleast 350-400k sub numbers.
You have to be crazy or just a straight up Eve/CCP hater to not see the increase in people. This game has grown a crazy amount in the last year and for a Niche spaceship sandbox all of this puts a smile on my face.
