I still remember reading about an article, I think it was just a few years after EVE initially released, where someone got caught sort of insider-trading where an actual EVE employee was helping some mega corporation in the game against the others corps. It was quite the stink. I do enjoy reading articles about how those mega corps battle each other & those big massive ships get destroyed in marathon battles though. I'm not sure if any other game has something similar like that besides EVE?

A few years ago Eve was hitting peak 30+ concurrent users, 21k just before downtime, and then would hover again around 21k after downtime till peak.A year ago it was 30+ concurrent in peak, 16 before downtime, and then go back around 21k till peak time hit again.Now its 12k after downtime........Anecdotal is anecdotal. In before the next expansion and people go look at all the numbers. FYI, they pretty much seem to have lost all they players they gained when they went F2P-ish. CCP seems to be back to the trickle of new players and the same bitter vets as before. Who aren't even playing that much themselves.As per the last war, Eve needs RMT to generate excitement and conflict. Bring back gambling and RMT.
If those were it's concurrent user base at a time it was the only viable pvp space game,that is not very good and says how few really want something like this.It baffles me as to how much SC is pulling in if the genre is not that popular,i feel some must be spending enormous amounts buying every ship there is.
