Bioware inflating online population numbers?


Recommended Posts

Last night while I was on I discovered that about half of the reported "online" republic populations on veela were Not actually online.

How did I figure this out?

Well, to start with, the total population for the republic side at that times was reporting as a total of 10. Yes, that's right; it showed that there were TEN people on the whole server (republic side)

The problem was that, when I looked at the total population, it showed that many of those 10 people were on the fleet, which was where I was. But when I looked at the fleet population, it only showed me.

To make a long story shorter, I ended up sending messages to the people that I suspected were not online, both on the fleet, and in other locations and.. Sure enough: "Player Not Found"

Four or five of the people showed up as being in the same place on both the broad and local lists, so I assume that they were actually online.

If There are actually only four or five people online when they are showing that there are actually ten, what does that say about the rest of the day's population.

I read an article where bioware said that the actual number of people who subscribe has remained the same and that people just aren’t playing with the same intensity as they did to start out with.....


Let’s stop deluding ourselves, shall we!
