EVE Online Held Steady In January

I wanted to record a couple of observations about EVE Online in January before the month progressed any further. Apparently the naysayers need to put off funeral plans a little longer.

First off, the number of pilots in space grew slightly during January. While still down year-over-year and even from the peak right after the launch of Uprising, at least the trend is positive.

The second data point I'm tracking is the number of player ships killed in low sec. Yes, the number of ships killed declined by 3.7% month-over-month, but is still up 28.4% year-over-year. While last month's total of 235,603 fell short of the magic 250,000 player ships killed number, at least the number is still comfortably above 200,000. When Uprising launched, critics credited a PLEX sale along with other promotions for the feature's success in low security space. The last couple of months have shown the factional warfare revamp is having some longer lasting positive changes on the game.
