    Well I don't care about the 'whys' I'm just glad we're getting some info.

    I agree

    And in all fairness about a month or so ago @SimGuruDrake had asked up what type of communication or information we were hoping to get. I believe this is a result of her work on that.

    @rudy8292 this was something they had asked us about like a month ago, it has nothing to do with todays mess.

    Lines are opening? well that may be. But I see this more like a panic mode. Someone told stuff they weren't suppose to tell (that Sims Latam account or whatever) so they decided the only thing they can do now is just spill the beans.

    But hey, I might be wrong, and they will finally open up about their stuff.

    It's better than nothing. Who cares how why we're getting the info as long as we get the info.

    I kind of feel like this decision was unplanned, and made as a result of the unrest of the fans.

    If so, good.

    Hopefully EA are letting them speak. I mean, the fact employees are scared of being fired from EA (EA are the ones who do the marketing for FB pages etc) for teasing content is just insane.

    I hope so too.

    While I don't blame EA for games turning out the way they are, I do definitely blame them for their management. Sometimes, it seems they are doing too little. Other times, it seems they are too much (for instance, with this situation right now).

    No, it's not panic mode, SimGuruDrake *just* said a page back that this is not because of the "leak" today and she's actually been working on this for a while.

    Well, if that is the case, it's great. I hope it won't be a one time thing though, and I hope we will see updates on work in progress more frequently.

    Seems to me since the patch was always coming next week to end the egg hunt, and along with that comes teasers for new content. Not sure anything changed other than she didn't wait until Monday to post her excited gif. Now everyone knows it's next week! Amazing!

    This is what is different:
    Hello Everyone! I’d first like to state that the only official SimGurus are those based in North America who are also members of the development / production / community team here at EARS. Any official statements regarding content for The Sims 4 will come directly from our offices here at EARS first.

    Now that we have that out of the way, I’d like to give you something that is official and that I’ve been helping work on: On Tuesday, April 19, we will be providing you with a look at content to come to The Sims 4 in the next couple months. I will have more information for you about this then, but am excited for you to see what we have in store.

    I read that as on the 19th we will know what will be coming for the next couple of months.

    That's all well and good, but four months ago is not now. And EA tracks statistics quite religiously, so I still bet this decision is based on stats and not "player unrest" on this forum.


    You can log in anytime and see the player stats. They are fine. They peaked with GT's release and have been good ever since. You have access to this info, even if you don't have TS4, by downloading the demo.

    They released an infographic recently and the game had really good play stats.

    I hope "talking about" means we'll actually get some details...maybe will finally learn the theme of the next GP, and we could still get it in the last week of April/first week of May

    I am stoked about this and I am stoked about having something to be stoked about!

    Yeessss!!!!!!!

    Woooottttt!!!!

    I can hardly wait though I wonder if this is content thru patches.
  • catloverplayercatloverplayer Posts: 93,159 Member
    My guess is that it's the result of fewer and fewer people actually playing TS4. Since it's tied to Origin, they can easily track that.

    This is the result of my communication with all of you and your desires to know what to expect. This isn't something that just happened in a day, it has been in the works and had always been planned to go out on that date :)

    Thanks for this SG Drake. We really appreciate it.

    Probably. Even if it's "Game Pack being announced on _____" at least it's something/

    I'm hoping we'll find out about Gamepack 3,Ep 3 and what's to come in Stuffpack 7 and more.
  • catloverplayercatloverplayer Posts: 93,159 Member
    The Spa Day Teaser was released on a Tuesday if you rememeber.
