ANOTHER 119 SIMS LOST LAST WEEK, POISONED AND KILLED DEAD BY HIGH TIER
High tier costs cause low concurrency and low user hours, which in turn depresses the SL economy and that in turn causes abandoned sims which in turn causes low concurrency and so on in a negative loop.
There are dozens of applications that Secondlife can NOT be used for at this time because of the high tier costs, people just can not afford it. Projects are NOT being started, projects are being abandoned.
There's no doubt about the link between super high land costs and the destruction of the Secondlife ecosystem. New sim types and new sim prices are needed yesterday.
The table above shows some possible new sim types and prices to help restore and re-energise Secondlife. There needs to be a more granular approach to SL land products to make the Secondlife product more accessible to all.
Clearly the decline is not slowing up and we'll see greater land slides over the coming months. Linden Lab really needs to take action, these weekly sim lossess will soon represent millions of USD lost. The current 'Do Nothing' strategy is not working, it's not just risky, it's losing Linden Lab money week by week, it's positively Un American ! Don't they want to make more money ? Don't they want Secondlife to be a success ?
Until tier costs come down and new land products introduced, the ecosystem will continue to be poisoned and fatigued. How can Secondlife possibly survive under these conditions ?
