Well, probably 95% of the people that ever heard about CC never made it to the mountains. 25% of that probably didn’t make it to glacier, so… 80% says that CC won’t release volcano. Since most people won’t ever get to see it anyway. Maybe they’ll make it if they got lots of free time, some day.
Users’ age matters. For example, if you are under 13, then you have lots of free time to play CC and advance. If most of the users are adults, they have lots of stuff to do and less time to play CC. If people are above 13 and under 18, they have even more work to do than adults, and will probably have 0 time to play CC. If you are a teenager, u probably play less than under 13 people, but more than the over 13 under 18 people.
Users average age affect the number of people that will be able to see the volcano world and its levels, if it ever gets released, so users age affect whether or not devs release the next realm.
cost/benefit analysis: cost = 0, unless u count the time commitment. benefit: people willing to keep playing. more subscribers. (actually not a lot more, since most people would have subscribed a long time ago if they are ever going to subscribe.)
tbh I don’t think CC is a money-making business. Subscribers mainly just pays off the cost it takes to keep the site up. I think CC is a non-profit organization, cuz this does not seem like a good way to make money…
