In reference to the original post....yes they are losing players.
I have spent an unknown amount of money on this game ( It's high, $1,500 high ).
But now, where am I? BJTater? Hateful? Manny, CTX, Civic, Roy, Pierre, TC, WP, Headshot, Dat, DJ, Myxakis, Lilbomb, Pred, Blu etc? We've all lost faith and branched out and left.
2,500 players a month is all well and good. But the spenders and defenders have left due to unresolved issues, and so will the new players when they realise they're getting screwed.
Such a good game with so much potential, but hey, they aren't aware of any crankbait issues despite 6 months of complaints. And as for the comps/tourneys, total b/s. No reflection at all on mainstream fishing.
People get annoyed when reporting issues only to be told ' things are working as intended ' or ' you were in the wrong place '. People get even more annoyed when the crankbait issue is basically not acknowledged!!!!
Yes, they're losing players. And they've already lost the money from those of us who supported the game from launch.
Such a shame.
