Thinker of Ideas
Either inno is in some hot water financially, or they are getting greedy.But there are other ways killing the forums will save Inno money, such as maintaining the servers they are hosted on, the cost of electricity to keep those servers turned on 24/7, the cost of future physical upgrades to the host servers, and so on. Now they can keep all that money and have everything on social media: Facebook and Instagram and Discord, plus their Youtube channel.
They switched to these never ending events, one after another. Then events that finishing everything still doesnt get you the full reward, then trying to sell artifacts to players to finish the evolving building form the event they finished all of but couldnt get a full prize from. Selling royal passes. Selling a lot of in game items lately. Testing ad's. Now getting rid of the forums... Feels more like they are just trying to kill the game. And extract every cent out they can along the way... - Now i dont know what it costs to run this game, or what they take in on avg, but they are doing a lot of stuff that pisses off the player base. I cant see how it does any good for them if there intension is to keep the game alive and going.
