I have been playing DH2014 since March and Dino since it started. After reading all the negative comments about lost gold and progress I feel really lucky because this has never happened to me (knock on wood). There have been some very minor glitches to deal with, but all in all I am very happy with both games. Yes thing could be cheaper but Glu is a business and money is the bottom line. There are MILLIONS of people playing DH and Dino...no wonder there are wait times for the "few" that have problems.
In the mean time I will continue to rack up Gold watching videos till the next regions become available. JMO
