nevertheless, for me as for common user the overall picture looks not very good.
you won't believe me, but during abt 2-3 yrs i've really played literally every "story" they've offered for me to play for gems.
i've dropped any "3-in-line" type games, bingo, etc. as soon as required level reached, but i continued to play "story" type games.
monsters, dragons, fashion, castle, farm, etc...
it was nice and fun.
but when "the dark times" came, i've got a feeling that one games are abandoned in favor of enforcing other games, i.e. "massive attacks" with events started to kill the time, nerves and fun.
thus, one after one, i left farm 2, restaurant 2, castle story, fantasy story, and now almost left dragon story.
because the schedule of events is getting tighter and tighter in each of these games. no rest, no break, no breath (lol)))).
the last standing are normal restaurant & bakery. but even here the schedules are not "human", and getting more & more strange in details (see above).
(btw, sometimes i even play abandoned fashion, and bakery 2. it's so quiet there... lol)))))
from the other side, for me as for former employee of a company once came to bankrupt line and then revived - it is understood that you have to take up and develop the projects bringing more "gems purchases", and to drop other ones just "over the board" in order your "la nave va"!
that's why i'm whishing this company got finally well in next year.
i loved so many games they offered, so i wish they became again strong enough to weaken back the requirements/events for their stronger games, and to support again their weaker games.
