It's time to face facts: Bin Weevils is declining in players dramatically. During 2013, Bin Weevils saw over 2,000,000 unique visitors to BinWeevils.Com, now in 2016, around 100,000 are now visiting the website, chances are the number of players logging in daily is low, due to the fact there is hardly any updates! The Bin Weevils Team have no effort in Bin Weevils anymore - they're focusing on mobile apps because they know Bin Weevils will be discontinued in the near future. What are kids playing more nowadays? Mobile apps - Bin Weevils Team obviously have a strategy here and are being ignorant as usual.
Not a surprise to me that Bin Weevils is going downhill: the game hasn't had any decent updates since 2014. Pretty much what we get nowadays is revamps, flash mobs, nest items, and blog posts (99% of the players hate all this crap). Even the new nest items are advertising the newest apps Pirates vs the Deep and Snake in Space! I don't know about you, new content makes me want to login and actually play the game, returning the same content that bores the life out of you won't. When does Bin Weevils actually consider player feedback? Never - they're the most ignorant team of people ever! It's no wonder the game is going downhill when you get blocked on social media by them for sharing an OPPINON.
It's not hard to show a little effort and enthusiasm, Bin Weevils Team! Whenever I see you online at your crappy flash mobs you go on be right back all the time LOL. What does the Bin Weevils community team do daily? Seriously, it seems to me they sit on their arses and be rude to kids or go on unwanted celeb accounts and say stupid things like ''DIRT IS GROSS'' to get attention. They're an incredibly lazy bunch of people, well, when I say bunch of people, there is literally only 4 community team members now. Bin Weevils made like 40 staff members redundant in March 2014. The community team are doing too many jobs and that means the posts on the Bin Weevils Blog are rushed and look horrid. So much time goes into preparing for flash mobs and crap on the blog!
Anyone can see advertisements are keeping Bin Weevils alive at the moment. The amount of promotions is making Bin Weevils less appealing, especially when they ruin Binscape areas (the areas that haven't already been ruined by Bin Weevils Team's crappy revamps). Not to mention My Little Pony taking over and the appalling Transformers ''Drive in Cinema'' area at Dirt
Desert Valley. I can't stop laughing at the recent area revamps - what the Bin have they done to our world of Bin Weevils?
Bin Weevils products flopped, the magazine was discontinued due to lack of sales, same with the whole entire toy line. The reason is simply because Bin Weevils is not worldwide; Bin Weevils Ltd spent so time and effort with the toy line, books, magazine, Bin Bots, etc. Such a shame! In 2012/2013, the magazine and toy line did well due to their creative advertising. That all stopped when Maybee took over as Head of Community, therefore they focused on going social and apps, so the products were stopped. Maybee and the community team tried to be a Club Penguin wannabe with their whole social approach; it clearly failed. Bin Weevils going social has caused too many consequences!
In my opinion, Maybee is not leading the community team in the right direction, there is clearly an issue which needs resolving. I generally think the community team do what they do for the money and be lazy on purpose, why not? They're getting paid for sitting on their arses all day doing nothing and they're getting away with it because of poor management. There is no passion from the entire team anymore! Rudebian
Will we see the closure of the Bin Weevils? Most likely, yes! If the Bin Weevils Team continues avoiding updating their game, less people will pay for Bin Tycoon and login. Bin Tycoon isn't worth the money anymore and Bin Weevils is already becoming like a ghost town. Virtual worlds in the past that closed did what Bin Weevils are doing, focusing on mobile apps and leaving the game to die. Have a look at the below graph from Google Trends:
The graph shows the top websites for kids (Bin Weevils, Moshi Monsters, Animal Jam, and Club Penguin). Bin Weevils remains right at the bottom, just below Moshi Monsters while Animal Jam manages to overtake Club Penguin. Moshi Monsters and Bin Weevils have both declined in the recent years.
|R.I.P Bin Weevils|
Here is Bin Weevils on Google Trends - as you can see in 2011 Bin Weevils saw tremendous growth, most likely down to the amount of exciting content they were releasing! In 2012, Bin Weevils saw a dramatic downfall and has never claimed back those high views from 2011. Although Google Trends doesn't necessary prove Bin Weevils is near closure, it certainly gives us an idea of how bad they're doing at the moment!
Be prepared for the closure of Bin Weevils everyone! Bin Weevils Ltd may close the Binscape's (is it even a Bin anymore?) lid at any moment. We can always remember Bin Weevils with happy memories! Once Bin Weevils Ltd release more apps and their upcoming Weevil World
Crafter Craft I believe they may announce the closure of Bin Weevils. It's only a matter of time! Who should be blamed for this? Not the community, all blame should go directly to the Bin Weevils Team. We've supported them over these years, now they can't be asked to do anything for us.
See you on the next post which will probably be another long rant.
