With 364875 active paying subscriptions in March 2011, CCP curbed the downward trend into a new high. The previous high was in Juli 2010 with 361389 subs, so now CCP has an increase of almost 3000 subs.
They had a dip in between the two records, which was to be expected as their previous high was the biggest growth they ever achieved month over month. Their current high looks alot more stable as they had 357918 subs in Februari 2011.
So it seems they are back, growing slowly but steadily, as they have the past 8 years ( Oh yeah, happy birthday EVE Online :p ).
Their latest expansion, Incursion, is also generally better received by the playerbase than the previous, Tyrannis and it seems CCP is listening more to the players now than ever.
Thanks to CCP for providing me with numbers ( even if they are not good at times ).
