As you mostly know, gi had a list of questions which they asked for after cancelling a Skype call, again which they asked for. So far we have had highly edited questions posted and copy and pasted non commital or non positive answers to these.
Gi posted SOME answers to our hard worked questions on fb and said in early September they're releasing update whereby we can add friends of our choosing again just without diamonds but they are giving us some quests where we can earn diamonds at weekends by linking to Facebook. Once again that sounds like gi want us to spam to our friends in return for a bribe, much like the levelling up screen,however, I've never had my ten diamonds for doing that so am sceptical of this feature working in our favour. I'm sure we will def be able to help gi by posting to our Facebook buddies but not so convinced the diamonds rewards will come our way.I'm sure bribery for the purposes of increasing profit is apples primary concern, especially as gi are running round blaming the whole boycott fiasco on apple regs and have been dragged into it in the press. I'm not sure a small Russian company should be trying to pull apples chain....even Samsung couldn't pull it off...
I think we need to increase pressure on gi to repair the damage to players by not answering us and messing with silly things in the game too much and never fixing larger issues.
If you're able today to send them a message through the g! Symbol in game or direct through Facebook I wonder could you please ask them to respond to the rest of our questions so we can all judge whether to bother carry on playing or just delete the app. This will shake them up enough for them to post by the end of the day I hope.
Oh and please,please please, do continue NOT buying in app diamonds until the game is repaired or maintained to a satisfactory standard to all. Even if your game has improved since the update,I urge you to please not buy until everyone can play decently. (although entirely up to you, im not bossin you about but numbers count in this game and judging by the uk app store grossing now putting them at 47 from 20 two weeks ago, i think our voice is showing them something)
