    That idea didn't last long huh? They were supposed to be bi-yearly, and unless you count the new house tiles, we've still only had the one, and that was two years ago.

    Best laid plans I guess.

    ...

    I think that High Seas was probably too big for a "booster", but it has the right idea... take the existing area we have ingame and update and flesh it out.

    By the same token, the house tile packs were too small to be a real booster.

    And of course such marketing strategies are only last as long as the producer, so I expect the whole system to change under our new producer as well. We'll see what direction it takes I guess.

    Hehe well, even out the one too big, and the one too small, and we still should have two "just right" boosters coming to us by now. :p

    Maybe with the change of producer came the idea to end the whole booster plan. But we did recently have the whole rustic pack along with the other one (forgot name). Also there is still a lot of time before the year ends, they may be working on one right now. Its not like they tell us everything they're doing and planning.

    Call them publishes or mini boosters but in the end you will pay your subscription plus pay for the long overdue publish/minibooster on top of it.

    I am waiting for the 100% bug fix publish/mini booster for $19.99

    I am also waiting for the 110% bug fixer for 100% bug fix publish/mini booster for $9.99.

    I am waiting for the graphics update publish/mini booster for $19.99


    Lastly.....

    I am waiting for the account migration publish/mini booster that fixed all the errors the account migration caused for players for $99.99. You must pay by money order since we cant deal with your CC because we dont know what we are doing. By purchasing this you can now sign in and it will accept any CC and you can resume play from your long overdue accounts that lost all their pixels. You also recieve "I finally survived the account migration and lost all my stuff" shirt for all your characters.
