On facebook every game is beta until it gets closed down, this will like remain the same until CAG releases a new game and stops working on this one. At that time at least 50% of the player base will stop playing or move to the new game.
But lets look at this a little more logically, 2% is still 2,000 players. Considering that thousands create accounts then give the game up or play them less than once a week, that's probably at least 50% of the 200k player based. Kong can't get DMU's and i've no idea how big that player base is, but if you discount those accounts say approx 1/3, 33%. Which leaves 15% of the regular player base that doesn't have DMU's. Also take into consideration that people who buy DMU's also have mutliple accounts, rarely do they buy DMU's for more than one account, roughly 3 on average. So I'd speculate (as I can't confirm for sure since only Con has the figures) that there is only approx 11% of the player base left who regularly play that don't have the DMU but have access to buy.
Removing the DMU would cause a lot of the player base to stop playing, which would be approx 6% of the most active players. When you break down the player base like above you can see that it would impact the game quite significantly if you did remove it from FB/AG.
So by all means Rose, if you want a large chunk of the active players to stop playing, then by all means levy for Con to remove the DMU. The trade channels would get a lot quieter.
Personally I'm dubious about the 200k player base, considering that at any given time there is usually at most 100 players in trade channels, and 200 in all the public channels for FB/AG combined and I know that more than 2% of the people who trade regularly have DMUs.
As for silly risk none was taken, like I said I bought the DMU to make the game playable, the money spent justified that, and I also don't regret it as it supports the CAG team with some income that they would unlikely have earned from me without the DMU.
Also I'm not sure what you mean by "People who bought fuel I beta have been banned from the game", You can still buy fuel in the game.
