I'm anticipating a further drop in a month's time. PvP participation seems to be down for rebels. Most players fade out, rather than suddenly stop playing. Even if they boot the game up once in 30 days, the clock towards automatic removal re-starts, and thus they will remain 'active' for KSoD 'all player' stat purposes.
At present I have 3 officers that have stopped playing a couple of weeks ago, but are still members of my squad. I will not remove them before the 30 day time limit boots them out, because they are excellent commanders that have played key roles in a lot of our War victories, and I hope they will return. Two of those officers used to post on these forums under the usernames ChiptheFish and pdxsport.
Of course, with each passing day it become less likely they will return, but as Saw Gerrera once said, 'Rebellions are built on hope'.
We also have new talent coming through, but I'm aware that not all squads are as fortunate.
