Love me some radio silence. Well Iíve uninstalled seeing as my favourite holiday in the game has turned into whatever this is. Was a fun ride I guess.
It really has collapsed. Two gift types , down from an original 8 (counting regular and super gifts of tough,
cool, cute, and smart back in the day).
Majority of gift rewards went from being hats and random furniture to being food and gralats (notably less than half the amount invested in the gift itself).
Somehow secret Santa and gift stalls just vanished on the 24th... Literally the biggest purchase day of the year.
Fewer and more questionable player submissions getting accepted (I got cat ears hat and an all black sunglasses accessory. Probably took about 10 minutes to draw both collectively, and the glasses are still only fitted to some heads, pretty sad).
I had intended this year to give out gralats instead of buying gifts, particularly because the gifts last year were so disappointing. That got nixed by removing the ability to farm and give others gralats.
For real, though - what's up with flash end of life? Gonna kill off like a third of the player base if this impacts the web based client.
