This can't be a good sign....that's a lot of people leaving the game.

well i would not jump to conclusion... few possible things IMO:
1) Fan boys (play just because it is star wars) but they got over the craving and stopped playing
2) Players did not like the game (high expectations)
3) Not innovative enough to retain players who were looking for new MMO

after those groups will leave, which they did, the game may stabilize... so neither good or bad... just bad publicity...

I personally dont play the game, because it is a them park not sandbox, but really wanted to just because it is star wars...
 
Yeah, I came to those same conclusions before you posted. The question now is, will the population continue to bleed or will it level out? Dunno
 
it may depend on the scare this publicity will do... but i would be shocked if it would dip below 1 million, i think that simply there is just too many star wars fans...

i had a discussion with one guy at a land party about this game and we agreed on two things:

1) the game should have not forced you into Sith or Jedi side, you would start neutral and you could shift in and out, kind of like EVE standings system but if there would be only two factions.
2) smugglers and bounty hunters should be a completely independent as of a third party in game...
 
They should have done a lot of things, those are good ideas though. I have my doubts that this will scare the publicity all that much. I would say that a smaller population on the server will drive people away.
 
it might... but if they would have made the game less of a them park it may have not have had that many players to begin with.... it just seems that them parks is what majority of players are looking for... :(
 
Well, look at Disneyland after all..................yeah, I get what your saying, but on the other hand, Eve is a bit too extreme a sandbox for many people's likings. Wish someone would come up with a good balance...
 
well said bro... there just isn't a game with fair balance between the two extremes...
