SilentKnightsCC, It always amazes me how people who obviously play and enjoy the game are always so eager to point fingers, and foster unverified misconceptions. The update has been implemented on every other platform, and yes iOS / Apple does have stringent guidelines.
@Fathom25 & Sledgey, Yes I can agree that IGG is not the most informative. However can you please share with us what you were able to find out from APPLE?
The bottom line is that anyone outside of the two companies, and their respective divisions that deal with the update process can only speculate. Further I personally don't see the logic behind posting threads that basically slander the developers of a game you patronize, and on their forum no less. Nor do I see any real value in insighting the community unless the intent is to steer members elsewhere. None of this will make the update available any quicker. But I am willing to bet your bottom dollar that IGG is busting their butt to make it happen, as it obviously benefits them more than any of us.
