    If you look at the bottom graph, you will see that the number of players is dropping at a faster rate than before. The numbers used to be fairly stable between 200 and 400 from December 2017 to May 2018.

    The peak in June is from the 5-vs-5.

    And then something happened in July/August and since then the numbers are declining faster than before.
    200 was the new normal in August.
    150 was the new normal in September.



    What happened in July/August?

    Did a major guild leave EC?
    Did a whole number of players decide at the same time that they don't want to play EC anymore?
    Is it some kind of community-backlash against 5-vs-5?
    Are new players coming in at a lower rate than before because something went wrong with marketing?

    At the end of August/early September HumbleBundle gave out "Space Marine" from Relic for free. It's also a 40k shooter and has since then higher player numbers than EC. I guess some people play this instead? Me for example: I bought Space Marine + DLCs 3 months ago, but only when the big number of players showed up again, I started to play it online to level up and unlock all the perks. On the other hand: I only play EC on UAT-playtests, or if a update or campaign is happening since a while...

    People got tired of waiting for shit probably. Space Marine ofc being full on free doesn't help because this game still isn't "entirely f2p". I'm sure rollex being made bannable rather than being fixed didn't help either for the people who rely solely on it to do even remotely decent causing them to quit. I can't remember the last time numbers were this low, it almost dipped under 100 at one point for a 24h peak.

    As for myself, I'm just waiting for my tournament shoulderpad so I can rub it in Bro player's faces for a bit, then quit for greener pastures. I've already stopped making vids for this game entirely.
