Take it for what it's worth.
There has been recent movement suggesting Glu's highest ranking individuals are not pleased with TSB18's returns. The question remains: "Will they do anything about it?'
WE want TSB fixed. They seem to be concerned for a slight decline in sales.
To us (the end users), the game needs some major fixes before we feel comfortable spending our money on it. To them (the developers), the game is struggling to yield the gains they expected.
To us, it means something more than money. There's a sense of community we feel with one another on the forum, but mostly with the members of our clubs. Even the global chat has familiar names most of the time.
To them, it's a business. The bottom line is their main concern.
I can't imagine the amount of Glu employees that go home from work feeling soulless and rotten every day. If you've ever had a job that required you to theoretically screw people, you'll know what I mean. Day one, you're happy as can be. Feeling accomplished. Feeling like you're exactly where you belong. As time passes, you start to realize you're just one of many pawns in a corporate game. Eventually, your soul becomes entrenched in greed. And one day, after you've screwed yet another hard working customer over, you decide to regain control of your soul. Trust me, Glu employees aren't all sitting in cozy offices laughing it up all day. They are pawns after all.
@Pdids, it is hardly news that people are addicted to this game. That is literally Glu's intent, it would be more shocking if people weren't addicted.
The interesting thing will be to see if the number of game downloads decreases next year, and what the user numbers look like 2 months into next season. Then we'll know if anyone (including me) really quit. I would assume most people who have paid or invested time into the 2018 game will continue to play until Glu relegates 2018 to the scrap heap.
The entire company's profits and losses is irrelevant to this topic. TSB's profits and losses are what I am mentioning. Care to show me otherwise? You know, because I'd hate to contradict myself again.
As far as the image of Glu execs sitting in plush chairs laughing their way to the bank, you're delusional. There is a definite sense of panic.
As far as us being phone-game addicts, that may hold true for a few people. Generalizing each of us as addicts is just clumsy posting. Be better.
