CN had at least 25,000 players at the beginning of last month. I might be wrong about the exact number, but it was at least 25k. Now CN only has about 22k players. We lost 3,000 players in a month! When I first started playing CN, I remember it had at least 40k players. More and more people are losing interest in CN, and I think I know why.
There haven't been any major updates in a long time. When was the last time a new resource, improvement or wonder has been added to the game? The Moon and Mars wonders were added about a year ago, but that's the only big update that I remember. When a game doesn't get updated for a long time, it gets stale and people lose interest in it. When people start playing and see that the game hasn't been updated in months, they think it'll never be updated. The developers need to update the game on a regular basis if they want people to stay interested in the game and keep playing. CN developers, if you're reading this, add something to the game so it doesn't go stale and so people won't lose interest in it. Add a new improvement, resource, wonder, religion, government, ANYTHING. You can say it takes time to add stuff to the game, but you're going to need to add something new if you want people to stay interested in the game. If the number of players keeps falling at this rate, CN will cease to exist!
