I wondered if it was slow because it's a Saturday, but now I'm wondering if it's because everyone is nearing the end of their tasks. It will be interesting to see how the servers handle the Christmas rush, hopefully we will all come out reasonably sane.
The excess of coins posts have already started.
With any luck, maybe all the Christmas newbies will get disgruntled for not having enough time to collect all the coins and just abandon the game.
At this rate, I'll consider it to be a Christmas miracle to get back in.
I guess it's a good thing that I don't consider it necessary to have the funzos or SLH. I just hope I'll still be able to buy the Try n' Save.
I just hope the Xmas house skins are available past the New Year. Because Cletus and Muntz's houses are sooooooo keeping their lights up all year 'round.
My guess is that it will be up to us whether or not the houses have lights after Christmas. I think that is why we can toggle them on and off.
Looks like we're through the worst of the tidal influx of new players and the board is calming down again.
This obviously happens with each new month/update but I think the Christmas one has been the most intense so far.
Well, we're through to the other side, mostly unscathed. What's more, the frustration involved has resulted in new sticky threads and other highly useful sources of information being visible to newcomers and I think that's having a good effect on the tidyness of the board, so that's good.
Now we just have to take a breather and ready ourselves for what will no doubt be the biggest challenge yet: the week immediately starting from Christmas day. On that day millions of people will be receiving new iOS devices as gifts and promptly indulging in their first app binge. Considering the popularity of this app and the highly visible place it has on the app store, we're going to see a lot more new faces and no doubt a repeat of all the same annoyances we've grown to know.
To further exacerbate the problem it will be the holidays so EA will not be as well staffed or efficient in solving issues, including the big hit the servers will take as a result of the surge.
So happy holidays you lot, just expect bumpy seas when you're tapping in your post-Christmas dinner fog.
Gonna be like Christmas Day noobs on the newest Call of Duty
