This is mostly about Toontown, because it has the most attention as far as I know. I am aware they are shutting two other games down.
Even if it's just signing petitions and talking to people about the game, please help. Disney is turning into what the toons fought against for so long, Cogs. This
game WORLD means so much to me, it's what STARTED me into the many games I play now. It's the reason I even met EVERYONE I know and love now, it's the reason I am who I AM today. Toontown lead me to meeting Abby, Brianna, Camden, Grace, Cathy, Natalie, Ann, Emmie, Connie, Carmen, and even more people. Toontown is somehow one of the reasons for many things, it's even one of the reasons I started drawing and writing.
If Toontown closes forever, I don't know what will happen, I'm not going to "quit" Toontown WITHOUT a fight. Disney is supposed to be a "Family Oriented" Company, I think that Family Oriented went out the window years ago. All they care about is money, and YES there ARE some Toontown Employees who want to save the world and I respect them. I think Disney's actions and greed will lead to their downfall, and even the economy. Disney is cutting tons and tons of jobs just doing this, thus hurting the economy even more. They are basicly digging a deeper hole of money problems for themselves.
Disney has truly lost it's title as the "happiest Place in the World" or as a "Family Orientated" company in the gaming world and in loyal Toon's hearts. SURE they have new games and highly updated games like Infinity and Club Penguin, but Toontown is one of the ONLY online games to have a connected community that has toons young and old, small and tall, and all unique.
I KNOW, that *Quoted by "Disney", 'Disney Interactive is committed to offering high-quality, entertaining play experiences in both online virtual worlds and mobile apps. At this time, we are shifting our development focus towards other online and mobile play experiences, such as Club Penguin and a growing selection of Disney Mobile apps.'
But can you believe this "reason" told to EVERYONE by a bot?
I will explain MY opinion on the bold parts below.
First, "Disney Interactive is committed to offering high-quality, entertaining play experiences" Not a SINGLE update for Toontown has been posted since FEBUARY or something. This shows me they are too busy with Club Penguin, which has been updated frequently AND consistently. Which ALSO proves that they will DITCH Club Penguin when it doesn't make anymore money.
Next one! shifting our development focus towards other online and mobile play experiences, ... the ONLY "virtual world" they would have is... Club Penguin. That is NOT EVEN a virtual world WITHOUT the IMAGINATION of one.
Finally, a growing selection of Disney Mobile apps.' Disney~!!! What about those WITHOUT smartphones? Have you thought about that Disney. Not EVERYONE has a stupid smartphone, you're not thinking clearly! YOU think EVERYONE has the SAME things~!!!!
Off the news from various places, Disney wants US to switch to Club Penguin! The game WASN'T even CREATED by Disney, they bought it off of someone in 2007! "Switch Over?"
I'm sorry for my language here but I have been holding it in the majority of this journal/rant.*
No thank you Disney, I'd rather have Toontown back. Even though I HAVE a veteran penguin, I rarely get on CP. Infinity just looks stupid, I'm sorry, it just does.
I think this is the end of my "little" rant for now~!!!!
* EDIT = I will be sending this to my Econ Teacher for reasons, so I took out the inapropreate sentence and replaced it with something more school friendly. But many of you know what was there before.
... Disney had lots of people's respect, they dug their own grave and lost many followers. I can't and don't want to face it, but
the cogs won this war.
