I know lots of you will say good luck and think I should really give this game more of a chance. I have given it a chance, I have been here for 4 months now after playing for over 3 years previously of which the last 12 months, as many of you know was really frustrating. The last draw this time was the last valid way of making any simoleans in the game is now gone. Code payouts have been reduced to 30% of what it was paying earlier today. I can not see this game succeeding where the majority of players will have to fork out real cash to go ahead in the game. Either that or take months to build a small and furnish property that would still not be able to compete against established players. I don't believe the development team are considering the new and returning players anywhere near enough. I ask all of you, would you seriously recommend this game to anyone now. I certainly cant. A game where the only lots that seem to be getting any sort of consideration are stores, while money lots and skill houses are getting kicked in the teeth. In fact I have to now admit to several people whom I tried earlier to talk into coming back, that they were right when they said this game would never go anywhere. I am sorry to all the players, I do not mean to knock any of you, and there are a lot of very good people in this game. I just don't want to waste any more time on something I can see falling apart very quickly.
