Easter collateral casualties?

They probably either got too busy for the game, or just realized how big of a waste of money this game has become.

    I currently have 4 names of (longtime) extremely active players set to "hide" . If a town is untappable for more than a day or two, I jot down their egg counts (from the friends screen) on my spreadsheet, and if that remains the same for more than three days, I know they weren't playing. After a week, I "hide" them. So far, four. I check periodically, by switching them to "show" every few days, but so far, they're still not around.

    I can't go by the untappable thing because if they have 100 friends, they'd need 300 tappable buildings at one time or another, and maybe I'm just too late. I can't go by last time active because that's unreliable. But the egg count seems a good indicator ... If it stays exactly the same, they're not playing.

    I assume its the event. Hopefully they'll be back. Two have truly exceptional towns and three have all the premium stuff as well.

    I've had to replace about a third of my friend's since the start of this update. I'd say about a dozen of them were premium/hackers. Now, I have hackers that got every prize and have quit playing. I'm already starting to replace my replacements now.

    I still go in their town, but nothing changes and in the friend setting it says that they have not played either 5-6 days or for a week. Like Annette, those were long time players with nice town.

    Just out of curiosity, how many of your active premium friends have recently stopped playing. I personally have 5, who are were active but have not played in the last week. One of them even have full baskets of eggs waiting. I don't think they have every items offered in the event. They have not even updated to level 40.

    Easter collateral casualties I wonder?
    I've just been unfriending the people who haven't played in two days. I never even thought about it. My hat is off to you, since my mind=BLOWN!

    All we can do is second guess them and speculate unless we've talked to them in email or otherwise communicated with them. I've known a number of premium friends with good towns who stopped playing prior to the event and just because they are at level 39 in no way implicates that they stopped due to easter.

    I cleaned my list before Easter started, so those are people who stopped playing recently.
