hi all
Maybe you also affected?!
Last days or better say it was the 2.1.2016 google play store  have a new update and this update destroy all downloads from the most  Indie developer !! 
So whats the problem with the new update??!
The problem is when you want to search for new games the you maybe click games top games and search for new games 

Before the update:

After the new update:

Between the Top Grossing and Trending was Top Selling New and  Top New Games .
Now after the new Update they are away??!!
What happend
??

My downloads going about 50% down :/
It was about 600 downloads every day now its going about 300 downloads and now i think its about  200 Downloads??!

Have someone the same problem after 1.11.2016 or 2.11.2016?
I testing it on my s5 s7 more coming but it looks like they delete New Top games ?!!
S3 works because its have a older google play store version.
But the other nope.

Hi Rayleigh. Thanks for posting and sharing. We've had continually lower downloads since the start of the year. And for us it looks like Friday November 4th has been very low compared to previous Fridays:

It's definitely something going on in the store, they've added the new algorithm on OCT 31, check it out here -> http://android-developers.blogspot.ro/2016/10/keeping-the-play-store-trusted-fighting-fraud-and-spam-installs.html

My downloads are at half too, check screens. 2016-11-06_0823.png

Wow! Seriuosly a dramatic decrease of downloads... the funny thing is, your keyword ranking is not going so low as the downloads... we should see a similar behaviour (on my oppinion).. I guess it also has to do with all the politic stuff happening in US now..

This might be a stupid question, but did you release this app 30 days ago? You do know that it will only stay in the "top new" apps categories for 30 days max?

PS: Where you find the top new  apps ?? Because now they change all .The new app button you cant finding it because its not inside the google play from the mobile phone. Only when you going on appanie or searchman or google the like new apps google play store.

The top new charts still display for me in the Play Store mobile app. I find it by going to categories, then pick a category, then scroll the top menu across.

I've checked my stats in iOS apps.. and I see a huge drop starting from nov 9. It was going down .. but nov 9 drop was huge in my apps... so this is not just affecting only Android (I really hope this has to do with Politics, and not a new tendency)

Great to know.. I wonder if all simulation action games are going up too? or maybe just yours because of the theme? Anyway... great to know that at least the panorama is not so depressive for all!

The drop is affecting also my iOS games... they made updates too and the ranking went down. True, the drop is not so low than in android.. but damn.. they should stop making updates!
