So is this game Chinese now?

I haven't played for many years as it refuses to work on Mac... I dunno why it just crashes at startup complaining about something. However the population has dropped massively and the Chinese bought it..... what is going on?

    I've forgotten what it was but something significant changed in the Mac OS a few years back which I think CCP decided not to support.

    The population is still decent for a game as old as it is, considering the narrow niche it appeals to.

    One of the Dev leads claimed in a recent interview published here there has been little interference from the new owners.

    He claimed to never have actually met or spoken with anyone from PA, which isn't surprising.

    I believe they purchased CCP so they could open new universes in China and other Asian markets. 

    Just found this recent story about EVE partnering with Netease who are preparing to relaunch EVE in China.

    Found another article where they opened up the western server Serenity to the Korean market last fall.

    In response to the thread:

    我真的不敢相信目前所有圍繞這個話題的炒作。這個遊戲已經存在很長時間了

    That's all I gotta say about that

    Pearl Abyss is Korean.

    It still seems to have a following and decent population.

    I just picked it up to give it another go.. 34k players online at a current... that's far more than PA's other title BDO, and BDO almost REQUIRES you to play AFK thus artificially inflating their current online users number.

    Seems healthish to me?

    Having more skills isn't a "win" state in EVE.
