Just a quicky. Let’s say that the TOR server merges are indicative of player population. Let’s also say that at the peak, there were 1.7 million subscribers as EA/BW touted.
1.7 million over 211 servers = 8056 players per server
Now let’s use that number and go back to the current amount of servers, 23.
23 servers with 8056 players = 185,300.
A 90% drop in subscribers in under 6 months. I am crossing my fingers that these numbers are wrong and that somehow BW has been able to boost those servers so that they can handle many more concurrent players. Like 5 times more players. Otherwise… holy jeez are we about to see one of the largest implosions in the history of online gaming.
