Where are all the 'Live' pilots?

Why do we only see about 100 - 200 ‘live’ players on all 3 servers at any given time? I thought they’d be a lot more based on the thousands of fans.

Just curious . . .

There are a lot of factors based on whether there are lots of people online or not.

Time zones, for instance… There are ALWAYS pilots online :) That’s pretty cool ;)

Plus most people on IF don’t have live as it costs. If only they all tried it out!

The devs should give them like a 1 week trial

It would be interesting to know how many pilots are signed up for Live. I assumed it would be in the tens of thousands based on the size of the fan groups/forums etc. I think a free trial would be good although there may be a problem with even more pilots trolling.
