It really annoys me when someone, I assume Playrix closes a thread simply because they have said that they are aware of the problem and are looking into it. That doesn't mean the thread should immediately become inactive. I tried to respond to a friend who had posted saying she was experiencing the blackout, only to tell her not to visit other towns until the problem was resolved but I wasn't able to. Bit too hasty to close down a thread that highlights yet another of their glitches it seems to me.
