Recently, there have been talks that Star Wars: The Old Republic's subscription numbers have been dwindling since the game's release back in December.  Many believe the lack of end game content have driven players away from the game once they reach max level.  However, according to lead writer Daniel Erickson, the number of concurrent users at peak times has declined resulting in a lot of "light" server populations - not players leaving.
