I am seeing slowly shrinking demand as well. Down about 7-10% from after the "fix."

I do believe It is based off the number of players in gw2. The number of players have dropped significantly since the start of the world.

GW#2 pax demand index has been growing at 0.05 points every month for a longer period now already. The player number effect is based on the max number of player spots, not the actual amount of players.

I noticed that the demand growth has been quite sluggish, to non-existent in the last decade...

It seems that the seats I blocked 10 years ago - I still need to maintain the same number of seats available, and keep the block...

That's not a correct assumption at all..

Year is now 1978, and the global pax index is currently set at "51.1" while 10 years ago it was at "46". So that's about 1% growth per year on pax numbers.

Thanks for the clarification Sami.

1% growth is much smaller growth than we are used to seeing - around 3% - which is why it seems there was no growth at all.

Is GW2 going to resume a more normal growth rate, or are we going to stay in this slow growth phase?

You don't know. They didn't know back at the time so maybe we should make this part of the game development on long term?

Let's just say that there will be growth always.. Sometimes faster, sometimes slower.

On that subject, the city based demand system would allow to create news about economy situation in each country. So we could produce for example "economy forecast" reports for each country where your staff will predict on the outlook of next few years (thought of this a few days ago, but not planned in detail at all yet).

Just short question, is it natural that after Haneda -> Narita switch the demand dropped by 50%?

That transition divides a lot of things by zero.... If you are not prepared to do a major overhaul of everything as a HND/NRT based airline, you will be bankrupted in short order.

I was just curious, since I never noticed such a long period of slow growth.

That is, as long as city-based demand is not implemented. For that case, and many others, it will completely change the dynamic.

I suspect there will be many bug reports filed for airport transitions for a while after city based demand is implemented.

But why should passengers from Athens for example not be interested anymore to fly to Japan just because a new Airport opens??? This makes no sense. Why can't demand numbers just be transferred to the other airport?
