It looks like there are no pinkies at all now in levels such as 728 and 1000 among others. Why would you remove them completely?
Using the occasion to ask you to communicate such changes with us, ideally before they happen. Prevention is the best cure.
This said, had you asked players for feedback before locking the game in portrait view, you would've avoided the huge wave of disappointment and long-term players leaving. Same applies to your plans to mutilate the game map.
