It should be 1-star rating on the store December

In the entire six years there have been firestorms on this forum. For every threat of any action the players could take. There was only one time when the devs got out and made a response.
it was when there was a forum player threat to rate the game 1-star on the appropriate App Store.
You want to do something as a group I think that is what will get their attention.

    Can't we do all of the above?  Stop spending, post grumpily here on the forums and at Reddit, etc, and lower app store ratings, AND initiate clawbacks for recent purchases?

    Of course you can do whatever you like that you feel appropriate. I’m just saying all those other things have been done. Including a couple of epic claw backs. None of those got even a response. The one time the idea of en masse rating of the game 1-star was floated there was a quick response.
    Time to see what happens if we follow through. I have had the game at 1-star for the last eighteen months because of their lack of responsiveness.

    I went to change my rating to 1* and realized I had never actually rated the game, despite being a daily player for 2,106 days.

    And today's roll-out brought in my first 1* rating ever!  It's now official!

    A 1* rating is like your parent(s) being disappointed in you. Don't think it makes a lot of difference.

    You might feel differently if your very existence depended in large part upon your visibility in the various app stores, which in turn is driven by ratings.

    Another would be to stop spending. However, a lot of people never even spend to begin with.

    My last deliberate Steam purchase was Nick Fury's Doomsday Plan when it was on sale in December 2017. I was left with €1,75. Just recently a Bugle Pittance was changed from €1,99 to €1,59, so I bought that. €0,16 left, yeah.

    So my spending isn't really making a difference here...

    On iOS the game rating has went from a 4.8 to a 4.6 since update went live. I bet a lot of the 5* ratings don’t even play the game anymore.

    Assuming this is true, what if the drop in rating would result in the game folding?

    I can't find a way to leave a rating.  Does that mean I've already left one?  Can I change it?  

    (It will definitely be changed to 1* if I can do it.  The devs had a choice to reward those who have stuck with the game for a long time and instead slap us in the face.)

    I'd just find something else to do.

    Huh, it's almost like collective action by the playerbase as a whole (or at least a large portion of the playerbase) can prompt swift action from the devs. . .
