Do we have numbers of how many players of this game are based in the US vs. oversea? If the overwhelming majority of players are in the US... the numbers of the US holiday weekend telethons suggest that, because it seems like on two major US holiday weekends the telethons numbers ended up being less than half of previous months telethons, yet, when they did a second go, the numbers ended up hitting roughly where previous telethons have hit, in total. I mean, we don't have ALL the numbers, but there does seem to be some correlation that would be nice to know the details on. Is it really an injustice if there seems to be correlation between major US holiday weekends and drop in telethon earnings on those same weekends to suggest there's something there? Are there dips in revenue coming from say the UK on a big holiday weekend there? How about in Canada? Australia? New Zealand? Germany? Spain? France? The Philippines? Nigeria? South Africa? Could some of the previous telethons that barely broke $90k happen because the majority of people in any of those nations were on a holiday? Seeing the breakdown of where all the telethon dollars comes from and how that relates to local to the nation holidays would be very interesting information to have. If we knew that... let's wildly guess that 75% of the telethon dollars come from the US, would it be less surprising to see the telethons falling a bit short on major US Holiday weekends? It's more important to know how much money is coming in regularly at the telethons or in subscription numbers. I dig the hell out of this game, it's enjoyable and I keep finding some new things to do and I enjoy the new things that they add, plus it really feels like that old school sand box that I've missed since the early era and JTL of Star Wars Galaxies, but... I'm a busy adult with many responsibilities. There can be a whole week where I just don't log into the game. The game is aimed at capturing a 'nostalgic' feel that seems to appeal to people in my age category, the over 30... over 40 lifelong gamer type. Yet, I do my best to hit every single telethon, since the game got to a point where it has the feel I'm enjoying. They are fixing gameplay, adding in quests, they put in the start of a PvP system that feels more like something I might take part in, they keep adding and talking about these things every month, I barely pay attention and see these updates and changes. Do you have numbers of "too many backers walked away"? It would be good to know solid numbers there too, or is that made up conjecture on your part? They really should review the metrics of where the majority of the dollars in Telethons are originating from and... plan accordingly with Telethons so that the sky is falling crowd won't crow about how the sky is falling AND they need to be stupendously clear about the intention of hosting a telethon outside of the "normal" schedule. Just like they did last... fall? When the Telethon would have landed on... a large American Holiday Weekend... ;-) I'm a Social Democracy Advocate, I'd rather that "POTUS" go live with Putin, since he shows so much love and adoration for the Putin. We're definitely on the same side there.
