You can read our initial Free 25 SimCash article here!
We here at The Sims Social Fansite would like to apologise to our readers for stating that the Free SimCash would be made available to everyone as this now does not seem to be the case. Whilst trying to bring you the latest news as soon as it hits, we made a presumption based on past promotions from offerings by the developers of The Sims Social, information passed onto us from a valid source and common sense which we deemed to be how Playfish would fairly play this promotion.
An official statement by Playfish staff read: 'We don't have any information on why some people got it and not others unfortunately. Anyone who was getting the 25 simcash, your account has already been credited. If your account has not been credited at this point, then you've not been given the gift this time.'
We would like to state that we are not associated with EA, Playfish or The Sims Social development team and are purely a fan site run and written by fans of The Sims Social online Facebook game and although we have provided valid and accurate news on Unreleased Items and features for nine months we on this occasion made what we felt to be a common sense presumption of how this Free SimCash promotion would be distributed, we hope that you have not lost your trust in us and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The question raised by this debacle is why have Playfish decided to only send Free SimCash to a random few players and not rolled it out to the whole The Sims Social community? We've heard from a lot of players that have not played the game in quite some time and they received the email which in turn credited them with the Free 25 SimCash. Was this a promotion to try and get old The Sims Social players back playing and raise the statistics of the games Active Daily Players since they have made some big changes and new improved features for the game?
Do you think that Playfish are being unfair by distributing Free SimCash to only a random selection of players? Are you disappointed not to receive an email granting you the complimentary promotion? Why do you think Playfish have executed the promotion in this way? Please share your thoughts and opinions via the Comments section below.
