How do you feel about a game dropping Open Feint support in an update

Heya, seriously thinking of removing it from my game Spirit in the next update. It's had Game Center support too for a while, and I'll leave that in obviously.

Trying to discover if anyone of you would be annoyed by this. Thanks!

We took it out of Plague Inc. in one of the updates and have not heard a *single* complaint.

Plague Inc. - Can you infect the world - over 200 million games played!

Check out the new and very cool cinematic trailer

Is it being replaced by Game Center? Then I couldn't care less.

If not, then I might be a little concerned about losing leaderboards/etc.

But, to tell you the truth, I hardly log into OpenFeint anymore - not "because it sucks" but because I'm on a minimal data plan on my phone and don't care to waste the bandwidth unless I really am interested in online elements of the game I'm playing.

I'm biased, not a fan of open feint. I wouldn't mind if every game I own that uses it dropped it.
I'm not a huge fan of game center either. It is kinda cool to have leader boards in arcade style games though.
Games that have both, GC and OF, kind of bother me. GC is the better of the two.
