Boycott!!!

[Post New]by Czoe on Apr 16, 18 11:08 PM
I, for one, pledge never to spend real money for anything Big Fish games I currently play.

Because of the Forum guillotine.

And, I will never again buy one from this purveyor of entertainment.

Anyone with me in this pledge?

Please join if you think it might have an effect. Apparently dollars are ALWAYS the defining matter of consideration.

We CAN have a say, if money is the defining factor.

Money can be a defining factor but I have a feeling that withholding our few dollars will have very little impact. Not to be a Debbie Downer but Churchill Downs just sold Big Fish Games to Aristocrat Technologies, which is an online casino company, for $990 million dollars. For that kind of money I think FTP games is not on their list of priorities. Online gambling is their thing.

BFG will likely be going in an entirely different direction in the near future.

Hope I'm wrong, though.

This is not a suggestion, just an observation:

Most of the games we buy are available for the same pricing from more than one distributor...

Hello Everyone,

While we understand that there are a lot of emotions at heart regarding the loss of the forums, I do want to remind our players that while the forums are active, everyone needs to be abiding by and following the Forum Rules, specifically, I will remind of the following before locking this thread:

Treat others with respect. Harassing, attacking, threatening, provoking, calling unwanted attention to, name-calling, insulting, or bothering other users, moderators, or Big Fish employees on the forums will not be tolerated. Play nice.

Make sure your posts are constructive and add to the conversation on the forums. Posting just to "level up" or "bump" discussions is considered SPAM. Posts that are not game related will be removed.

While we understand that there are concerns about this decision, we definitely believe that players could use this time to contact acquaintances and friends that have been made here in the meantime so you can keep in touch beyond these forums.

It isn't constructive nor helpful for the forums to request people to not purchase from us, nor is it respectful to claim moderators will ban you for voicing opinions. You may note, no one here has received a warning via PM, this is merely a reminder to keep our forums constructive as you've agreed to do when making a forum account.

Since this thread seems to be mainly non-constructive, I'm locking it. Players have been using the following thread to discuss these changes recently, and I recommend continuing a constructive conversation about this change here: The BFG forums are closing down!!!. Players are also encouraged to contact one another via Private Message to share contact details. It might help to type our at and dot for email addresses to avoid our forum's automated filters.

Thank you for understanding we must still uphold the rules and will lock non-constructive threads. People are also encouraged to PM me or any of our other active Moderators with questions or concerns about this change. We will do our best to address them with the information we have available and are always happy to listen.
