Really the only interesting thing about the whole thing is that you can readily extrapolate the current paid account (not subscriber) base from the numbers given.

Unless their churn is in the 29K/mo range, which seems unlikely, it's a tad less then was last reported.

@Myria I was thinking the same thing. That would show that less than 10% of their claimed subscribers are actually active players in the community.

Well that's assuming "active" necessitates government participation.

I'd suggest it's a stretch to assume CSM participation is comprehensive in representing the "active community" of EVE, as folks are often too narrow in their scope to care about the global sway of decision making while remaining active members of their sphere of influence. (Like their favorite solar system, or region, in game)

Heck, just look at voter participation in real life, how much more removed are folks in a virtual setting.

"The average age of accounts voting is 2 years, meaning that most votes were cast by veteran players"
