Come on guys. Have none of you played other games online? Like, I mean much bigger games that cost a lot more to play than CC. I've seen server failures happen and worse than this. I've seen it happen where they took a server offline for 24 hours, brought it back up and people were having issues over the next couple of days, so a 72 hr rollback happened with in-game items as compensation for inconvenience. People had to wait several days to get game coins credited that they paid for since the rollback point. (It was much worse and that's what could have happened here too, but they chose to act quickly) Because, that's what this is, inconvenience! You're not going to lose a night's sleep over it, so stop complaining.
It is not practical to expect the admins here on CC to spend idiotic amounts of time rebuilding data because Johnnynomates55 and MissPiggy69 are going to lose or gain a few points here and there, and then having to iron out all the issues associated with that throughout the next month. It is better to rollback to before the data corruption took place in order to rule out future outages.
I know I prefer a rollback than seeing the site taken down for however long. They did what was best for the site as a whole. To the minority of babies... Suck it up and move on.
