It’s back, it’s back, it’s back – KIPS SCRAPYARD!

Hello Bin Weevils!

We did it, it’s back! Today, 2nd February 2016, Kip’s Scrapyard made it’s debut in the Time Portal located over at Bin Pet Paradise – it’s now apart of the other two areas located there:

  • Peel Park
  • Ink’s Orange Peel

We have Under The Bin to thank for the return of Kip’s Scrapyard – on the 16th January 2016, they held a protest at Ink’s Orange Peel (arguably the most loved area on Bin Weevils) to bring back Kip’s Scrapyard. The outcome was tremendous and since then, Bin Weevils staff members have been dropping hints about the return.

From my personal view, Bin Weevils has improved dramatically this year and I’m confident they’ll win this years Bafta Kids Awards if they continue. I especially like how we receive a ‘big update’ each month –  in January, the brand-new, Bin-tastic Dirt Valley was released and so far in February, Kip’s Scrapyard returned, which many players had desired.

Bin Weevil Company Exclusive: Upcoming Forums Page

Hello Bin Weevils!

With the newly released ‘Weevil News‘ (which you can expect a review on), the Bin Weevils team have been working on a number of ideas to bring Bin Weevils up to scratch.

Bin Weevils staff member Swathe revealed a sneak peak of a project he’s been working on:

I believe forums will be a great addition to Bin Weevils as players will be able to communicate though a more user-friendly system, share their ideas and help weevils without the in-game character limit.

However, it would mean they’d be required to enroll extra staff (including night workers) to moderate the forum (which I wouldn’t mind doing!) to ensure the content remains child friendly and complies with their policy.

Bin Weevil Company Exclusive: New Bin Badges

Hello Bin Weevils!

Since the Bin Badges were released (over three years ago), there’s been speculation as to when the ‘coming soon’ badges will be released…

A few days ago, an unknown weevil was seen at Flum’s Fountain with an unobtainable level of 100:

Thanks to Dumdawg (aka chip8967) for the screenshot

After investigating the above weevil known as ‘BinBadges’, Bin Weevils staff member Swathe confirmed he was testing new Bin Badges:

While it’s unfortunate that level 100 won’t be arriving yet, we can now look forward to new Bin Badges, as well as Rigg’s Project 2016 which was revealed a few days ago.

Scribbles Gets The Scoop: Project 2016

Hello Bin Weevils!

Scribbles_reports

Scribbles here – you won’t believe the scoop I’ve got for you! I digged further into Rigg’s mysterious ‘Project 2016’ and discovered he was working with Zip, the Bin’s Top Racer.

Intrigued, I rushed over to Zip’s office, where I discovered an image hidden under a pile of Dirt Doughnuts which displayed a…… REVAMPED DIRT VALLEY! I managed to snap a picture with my Bin Camera before I heard Rigg and Zip’s voice:

Unfortunately I was unable to find any information on a release date, however I did hear Rigg mentioning that it will be finished by the end of January…

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 370,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 16 days for that many people to see it.

Bin Weevils 2015 Review – What Could be Improved?

Hello Bin Weevils!

2015 has been one of the most shocking years on Bin Weevils since I joined the community in 2011, due to a vast amount of reasons, such as:

  • Bin Weevils ended their consecutive winning of the Bafta Kids Awards.
  • Exploits made aware to Bin Weevils staff have not been dealt with (patched).
  • Updates revealed on the blog haven’t been produced in-game.
  • Past events and locations are returning rather than new content being added in-game.

Throughout this post, I will be discussing a selection of the listed points listed above, which also resulted in the loss of players and enthusiasm on Bin Weevils.

Updates Revealed on the Blog Haven’t Been Produced

Near the bottom of the January highlights (which was posted on the blog almost 365 days ago), Bin Weevils revealed new player profiles would be released somewhere during 2015 as shown below.

January Highlights - No Updates Player Profile

We’ve now reached the end of 2015 and ‘updated player profiles’ haven’t arrived – this has caused a dent in Bin Weevils reputation in the future it may become apparent that they alleged the update to create hype throughout the game.

Exploits Aren’t Being Patched by Bin Weevils

Back in late 2014, Bin Weevils database was breached causing the game to go into maintenance for 4+ days – this caused many to leave as their weevil was shared over external chat sites, however it’s alleged that Bin Weevils was made aware about the database exploit many years ago and came upon the decision to take no action.

I have been assured that their database is now secure, however ‘mini exploits’ are in the process which mainly consist of unique weevil colours (which aren’t available inside Dosh’s Palace), as well as gaining exclusive super antennas from past events as proven below:

I am aware that many players have reported the abusive weevils to Bin Weevils and in most occasions the player is banned, however this encourages them create a new account and repeat the exploit, resulting in Bin Weevils having to spend time looking into the case and taking action rather than creating new features in-game.

My recommendation to Bin Weevils is to spend a vast amount of time looking into the exploit and patching it, otherwise in the long run it will be used to assist exploiters in creating more damage.

New Content Isn’t Being Produced

This is a huge issue which seems to get worse each year. Rather than creating new content for the game, Bin Weevils bring back the same event from the previous years without making any amends.

Listed below are a selection of the events which are bought back each year, however make a note that they are not the only ones – this years Winter Wonderland was also from the previous years, as well as many other events were.

The level free hat sale, along with it’s partner, the level free nest item sale, has been circling the Binscape for over three years now and has become a very boring and poor event now.

Many flocked to Bin Weevils when the Super Antenna Quest was first released three years ago as they previously had been unobtainable to all weevils except for Bin Celebrity members Scribbles and Big Weevil and when players earned them, it gave them a satisfaction of owning a unique item once the Super Antenna Quest had been removed from the Binscape, however it caused much fury when it was released the following year – in my personal opinion, this was a big mistake.

I have high hopes for 2016 on Bin Weevils and they’ve already hyped up the year by revealing a sneak peak of Rigg’s Project 2016. I hope they review the points listed in this post to make Bin Weevils, once again, a fun and interesting experience for all.

Bin Weevil Company would like to thank Weevilzed for inspiring this post – make sure to check out their Bin Weevils review.

BREAKING NEWS: Project 2016

Hello Bin Weevils!

ScribblesReports_Rigg2016Project_01

Unconfirmed reports of a mysterious ‘project 2016’ have been going around the Binscape for a while now, so we sent ace journalist Scribbles to investigate – here’s what he had to say:

“I was in my office coming up with some New Year resolutions, when hf556 informed me Rigg was up to something – I immediately knew this would be a scoop for Weevil Weekly, so I hurried along to Rigg’s Property Shop and while peeking through the window, I heard him speaking about a blueprint for Project 2016 – I managed to snap this picture with my Bin Camera before he spotted me!”
