understand (fine tune)...and any student of these grossing charts knows Canada has been a soft market (probably the softest of Western/ European type)...you break in there, you break it everywhere :) I like comp'in the free list to the top grossing.,.initially free runs high (new interest) and grossing runs low (no spend till I like it :)...watch the turn, when TG outruns Free...motion in the monetized ocean :) fear not my brave investors, this dog will hunt, give 'er time :)
If you have a registered account at App Annie, take a look at CCSS history and compare with Paradise Bay's early days.
CCSS didn't crack the top 50 grossing for nearly six weeks in the test markets despite it's "royal lineage".
CCSS toiled in the Canada/Sweden/Spain testing grounds for 2.5 months before going worldwide.
Fourth quarter earnings only had CCSS online for half the period (opening in the US Nov 11), first quarter game earnings should be substantially greater.
So back to PB and it's early trials/tribulations, if you've been following the charts, the trend is moving in a distinctly positive direction (especially take note of current New Zealand data).
Finally, I've got to think a Farm Heroes II will be in the cards at some point in future, this underrated powerhouse has scored #5-#15 Top Grossing since it's inception nearly 1.5 years ago.
Patience required, best to all.
