It is unfortunate to hear that you do not enjoy SocioTown anymore, but just because you do not like it anymore doesn’t mean the rest of the players do not like it anymore, too. I still see old, regular, and new players in the game, although not as frequent as before. There is still interest, and to say that the game needs to be shut down per your preferences sounds a bit… selfish, don’t you think? You are not the only player, after all.
And yes, I do agree to your statement that the current playerbase is noticeably lower than before. It saddens me, but it is the reality of it. However, I do not agree to your statement that this new feature was only implemented solely because the playerbase is low now.
This new feature has been suggested long ago (as mentioned by Malcomn) and has been an idea for quite some time now. It is also a common feature in other games. I do not have the official reason, but Chris probably thought that it is about time for SocioTown to have a feature like this, too, and that it is only implemented now due to Chris devoting his time and focus to other bigger things and more pressing SocioTown matters.
Times do change. I am sad to hear that you do not enjoy this game anymore. But like everything in life, let us develop from the negative and let the positive things move us forward! Onwards we go!]]>
