While it doesn't have retail player counts, there's definitely enough to get stuff done. People do dynamis and sky regularly, 3 have finished the CoP storyline, someone has made it to rank 9. A few people are crawling towards 100 in their crafts, but it's difficult because SE keeps breaking HELM. I had it all but fixed and ready to go back in but today's update breaks it again. It'll get fixed and put back in place soon though. There will be minor modifactions as well that make up for lack of gardening.
