Uh, yikes. So while the game has stuff to help you catch up, all your progress will get flushed regardless if you don't play for 3 months? Mind, 3 months is a good chunk of time, but still. Hopefully there'll be an alert system in place to help the forgetful sorts :P

That does seem rather harsh... I wish we could just save our own data then, but I imagine that would have them worried about people manipulating the data then. Not sure how I feel about this.

Yeah, I don't know if I like that either, there are some times where I don't play at all in the summer months.
