I have written a letter that I plan on emailing to
Princess developers and publishers and posting on the official forum
just less than two weeks from now.
The letter, as you can see, is asking for the crashes to be
addressed. If you would like to sign this letter
please let me know in this thread or through a personal message. I will update the list of those signing
periodically. My goal is to get
200 signatures. I think this is
the most effective way to let the developers know how crucial these
to the survival of this community.
If you agree with the contents of the letter and agree to sign
your PSN ID) please let me know.
If you are inspired to encourage your friends also to sign, then
great! We can make change happen!

Dear Fat Princess Developers and Publishers,
We are writing to you, on behalf of many in the Fat
community, to ask you to state your intentions to fix the Fat Princess
crashes. It is not an exaggeration
that these crashes are threatening to destroy this community. Though the newest downloadable content
has brought, and likely will bring, more people to this game, we do not
that the popularity of Fat Princess can be sustained with the level of
technical problems it is now producing.
While the destruction of hard earned stats
the true heart of the Fat Princess community, the game itself, is also
destroyed by the crashes. The
casual fun of an impromptu game is immediately dampened by a frozen
by the sudden exit of half of the gamers.
Public games that have become intense, competitive, and
become meaningless frustration when a crash epidemic hits.
The crashes are also threatening the more organized
that has burgeoned in Titania.
Organized non-clan matches, like Adults versus Teens or West
versus East Coast or Pirates versus Ninjas, are supported and sustained
players who want to enjoy the game for what it is, an opportunity for
meaningful entertainment with one’s online friends. In
these matches there is always the real and potential risk
that after much work organizing, practicing, and finally executing the
they will be destroyed by major technical difficulties.
Finally, the crashes are threatening the networks
Princess clans. Not only is each
clan struggling with individual members quitting out of frustration with
technical problems, but also the very structure of what binds clans
being threatened. Practices,
scrimmages, and matches cannot be sustained with constant crashes. The crashes deflate singular events and
create general frustrations that add to the already delicate potential
community that makes the foundation for every clan.
The community would appreciate open and direct
on this issue. We understand these
problems are difficult both technologically and potentially
bureaucratically. We need to know, however, your
intentions for addressing these issues.
If you were not previously aware of the crashing issues thenwe hope you now are and that you will be
to address these problems.
For the sake of the current community and for the
hope for future
growth, we ask you to please resolve the technical issues that are
