You're clearly unwilling to discuss any of the points I raised, but thanks for the reply nonetheless. Good luck.
Well I will discuss this a little .
I'd be fairly certain there are plenty of others in the same boat.
" plenty of others " . Is not plenty . Is the minority and will not be enough .
are going into the continued development and
debugging of the PCEA version of the game because of the upcoming death
True I can play on the loo.. lmao
Mobile games are easily destined
to be casual by nature. And who plays these casual games mostly? Kids
and youngsters. Unfortunately, the nature of WGT as a game doesn't fall
into this category. I believe the mistake WGT people are making right
now is they try to force the game into the frame of casual mobile game.
It's like a middle-aged man trying to dress up like a teenager. That's
how awkward it is!
I'm not saying WGT should abandon the mobile (PCEA) version, but they
do need to specifically determine who they will target to appeal the
game and create the contents accordingly to suit the tastes of
their customers. The status quo of the game clearly indicates it's going
to the wrong direction right now.
Don't try to sell a tricycle to a grown-up. You can sell a motorbike
to a kid (with a license & parents' consent) who is serious enough,
though. And remember, WGT! You already have well-established long-time
So well said Simon .
It's like shooting themselves in the foot .
The real WGTers . The mass majority are insulted and almost speech less . Knowing that WGT has not , are not , and will not listen to the masses . And ARE leaving the game . As fast as they can . Rather than settle for a round on the " Loo " .
I know this because they tell me and see below
We , they , them , us are shocked and disappointed and angry at the decision to go with PCEA as the only Flash alternative .
Because WGT spoiled us with a full out , ahead of the times , competitive , intricate with variations , player friendly , elite platform for the last 14 years .
A newer , faster , better , state of the art version is the only answer that the WGT Universe will tell you . But WGT didn't ask .
I already felt this way before I started on my current project . Which has me scanning complete profiles in search of pre 2010 active players . Which means I have to look at every player in between .
Of the over 1200 profiles I have seen . Just over 150 of the pre 2010 are still active .
But there have been several hundred that have left the game in the last year . 2/3rds of them since PCEA started . And even more 2010 , 2011 , 2012 , have left . It is astounding . That is just what I have looked at .
btw those numbers are from the very top most active oldest CC's . Who have friends " not in CC's " on their lists . Barely touched the tip of those . I won't ever get to the smaller CC's . If I did there would be no one left .
