    Just got email reply from songpop saying they will NOT change the format back even though I proved to them that I would not play until they did. I haven't played since random was replaced with best choice. I am currently awaiting a knock-off version for someone to create. Dave Kubesh Wisconsin

    I miss my random players.  A lot of the Best Match people just delete me or are not currently playing.  And I enjoyed getting players from around the world.  I've found so many new songs this way.

    You guys have heard all of our comments and concerns, when are you going to change it back to the random player feature? I think everyone who is a fan of song pop agrees that it should be changed back to the way it was! I should not have to waste my power ups that I've earned, to try and find someone to compete with! FIX THE PROBLEM!!

    They're not bringing back, so I've chosen to boycott or wait for a copycat version to be created by someone that is also pissed off with the technical know how to do it. People got tired of Napster and iTunes and look at our options now. If they build it, we will join.

    Once there is no one left they'll buckle or fold. They need players more than we need another game. Boycott boycott boycott! !!!

    i´ve mailed to songpop support and the answer i´ve got was only usable to wipe my floors with it. They´ve decided to replace it with best match and no pleads will bring it back. 

    to still enjoy playing with people all over the world can it be possible to make "dates" for playing via searching users by username?

    Last time I checked, I saw I was a possible player for best match. Maybe the others not returning challenges have also decided to boycott. Songpop's refusal to also take me off their now playing list is making it worse for others still trying to play waiting for others like me refusing to. They're worried if they don't have large subscription numbers, their advertising leverage goes away. They're shooting themselves in the foot, once the numbers drop, they'll have to cave in or go belly up. I'm still waiting for them to pull their heads out of their a***s before they're in so deep they can peek out their belly buttons. If not, look at what the internet has done to the phone companies and the post office once they got the monopoly attitude. Someone will make a clone version of this that is more user friendly and we will go there. The boycott is the only way they'll get it. No subscribers, no advertising $$$$$$!!!!!!

    They think we are desperate enough to take whatever crap they want to give us. Remember "New Coca-cola " back in the 80's? No one bought it and "Original Coke " was suddenly available again. Get as angry as I am and boycott.

    The people that run this game basically "stink", in my opinion. As is evidenced by this forum, they could really care less what any of us think. Two thumbs down for SongPop's customer relations. :-((

    Well I will say, I regularly played 60+ people on average, almost every single one stopped playing....only played about 10 games all week myself. I have asked to be reimbursed for my premium purchase of the game. It is no longer what I had paid for and now it's worthless as an app to me. If it had been left alone, maybe it would still be #1 and people would still be playing like crazy. It's pretty dead now on song pop and not entertaining. Song pop will catch on quick enough... The rest of us see it, they can't be blind and not see how many people are complaining and just walked away from the app. Seriously this game WAS addicting and fun, I loved it!! Now it's boring, slow and not many people to play... Oh yeah...unless you pay them for "power ups" to add new players in best match LOL what a joke....!!!! Keep your power ups, I'll find a better game to play :)

    Been reading a lot of comments, glad to see I'm not alone in my frustration. They've got to pull their heads out of that dark stinky place sooner or later, or SP will no longer exist.

    What stinks the most about this is that I PAID to have unlimited games, but that's now limited by this change. Uncool. Not to mention, my best match shouldn't be someone I live near. My settings have location turned off, but best match is with location.

    Obviously they're too thick-headed to get it. This has been going on for two months now and all there is complaints and withdrawals from players. Must be run by the NFL we see how the rent-a-ref thing went this year. It wasn't until people threatened to stop tuning in for games that they finally got it. Once we stop they either go belly-up or comply with our demands. My email address hasn't changed for whenever they want to notify me they bring back random choice and don't start charging powerups for that either. Still waiting for a copycat version or the game if anyone creates one, count me in.

    The only reason I want to conserve my powerups is we are stuck with categories I regret buying anyway.

    I love SongPop but I miss the random player. I don't like best match because sometimes it's nice to fine people with different musical interests not the ones that are exactly the same as yours. With random player I could always find someone to play with but with best match I only have 3 options.

    I've now tried using best match since it started to make it work and my experience hasn't improved.

    - response rate from invitees is much lower than from random (and i've used my 3 every day to give it a good try)

    - I've not had a single challenge from a new other player since it started. with random i was getting one or two new challenges every day

    - where I do get a response, the responders are identikit, far less variety.  If they find the experience the same then it explains why the games fizzle out very quickly

    - looking through my games the long running are all from before best match started

    In all a disappointing flop heavily restricting the variety and range of gaming available.

    Songpop, do you even read this? I've to get through to any potential sponsors and advertisers to see if they can get you to pull your heads out of your posterior caverns and will continue to do so.

    Ok with the new update, you can click on an opponent and see who they are playing. Click on their opponent and you can challenge them without using your power ups.

    I think I have had it with SongPop.  You keep matching me with people that either won't play, just play long enough to get ahead and then quit, or people who score over 20,000 every game. I use to win the majority of my games now I'm lucky if I win 5 a week.  This sucks...

    I think for me, the new update cleared this up. unlimited players as I understand. I can look at friends' opponents and find people based on similarity so if I want to play someone a bit different, just select a lower compatibility. I have added my french speaking friends' friends so that I don't have to annoy everyone and their mother who doesn't speak english. I am adding people who have a larger number of opponents (& not like 6), but I sent like 30 new challenges yday and everyone has responded.... 

    The limits on new challenges was a lawsuit waiting to happen, so it is nice it's been addressed where you can get that many challenges if you want.

    I haven't read all of the posts so this may have been covered....but I JUST realized when I shuffle the match or request a new one, its taking my coins!!!!! I don't think it even warns or says "spend a coin" or anything!!!

    Donna, think about it. people paid for a year's subscription of VIP so that they can have unlimited games. If songpop makes it where they can't have unlimited games and they have taken people's money for a time period such as that, what do you think would happen? 

     

    get enough people in that boat, and i bet something would happen.
