A better way to put it :
Increased EPC may result due to positive smart pricing which depends upon various factors including increased CTR.
The G algo is too complex to get a straight relationship established.
Conversions is the key factor here.
Other factors like , MFA's , lower no. of adblocks, advertiser bid prices etc are all determinants.
Somewhere along the line, Random Pricing (tm) takes into account loads of factors, and many feel based on analysis of their own data that ctr is one of the major factors. Therefore reducing the number of ads will increase the ctr, and hopefully this will feed through to Dumb Pricing (tm) paying you more per click, and increasing your overall earnings.
