I have been, admittedly, a CC addict. A few weeks ago you would have received 5 stars. Not now. I hoped when you did the recent upgrade you would fix the mess, but you didnt.
The recent update which removed the option to exchange stars for Food energy is frustrating. It effectively cut back the reward for finishing scenes to the why bother arena. I never did see much of a point to doing the Elite Status, the rewards were not attractive enough.
The addition of a boring sticker book (havent used sticker books since I was an 11 yr old girl) was no compensation.
The lack of acknowledgement of the players loud and vocal objections to the recent changes is disappointing.
Some good and welcomed upgrades would be to change back the exchange of stars for food, make the Elite status more attractive, get rid of the silly sticker book. Focus on developing more scenes and crimes.
Or do you think that approach would not garner as much revenue for you from those willing to pay your exorbitant prices for energy/food etc.? Frankly it does feel like you did this recent change as a way of grabbing more money from loyal fans, vs continue to build on your revenue by attracting new players.
