was nearing its conclusion, many of New Eden’s inhabitants
remained relatively unaffected by the events playing out in 0.0 space.
All of that is about to change though according to the most recent
edition of href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/features/mittani"

Yet, while the Great
War captured the imagination of both the players
and the media, only a small proportion of the playerbase directly
participated in it. One might bandy about rough figures of twenty to
thirty thousand participants on either side of the war, yet EVE has
300,000 subscribers. The vast bulk of those pilots live in protected
Empire territories, patrolled by unkillable NPC 'police' and insulated
from the violence of 0.0. Bring up the map with 'pilots in space'
during Euro Prime, and it seems clear that 80% or more of the
population blunders through EVE in Empire, intolerably free of the
threat of violence.
