Halloween was a good occasion to collect some candies. Please bring us similar features during other holidays as well. Easter will be a good opportunity to hatch 'em eggs!
Translation: we are losing players by the 10s of thousands daily because of our poor choices over the last 6months. Please start playing again. We'll give you stuff if you do. Please. Please. I have kids to feed. Please...?
'll use small words so that all can understand: Game free. Bonuses=more free. Time is money. Software developers need to eat. Software development is hard: I have been doing it for a living for over 30 years. Results are not always as expected :-) If you produce nothing but perfection at your job then feel free to deride the developers otherwise say Thank You for the Free game!
Could you make it so trainers may only assign a Pokémon to a gym if there's no other Pokémon of the same species already assigned? All these tier 10 Dragonite infested gyms are actually pretty boring...
Way to save this for a time players are dwindling down. Surely this will be super worth it as hardcore players play every day anyway. #BringBackTheCore
Cool! A little hard for me right now due to my back injury, but this could encourage me to do my low impact walks during the day.
Honestly, daily bonuses isn't really a NEW feature, but is just a polishing up and re-releasing of a feature they discontinued from beta.The BETA version had daily "Gifts from the professor" which usually consisted of some pokeballs and a couple thousand coins.
If you ask me its a desperate hail mary to keep the little people the've got. Within the first month i basically collected everything including 2 region Pokémon. The will to keep catching and doing is nowhere to be found for me. Player level doesn't contribute to nothing. And its just all so vanilla, above all its rinse and repeat.
In other words they are losing players based solely on their own actions and trying to think of a way to keep them coming back. Should have left pokevision alone and fixed the tracker.
Tell us what you think!
