To be fair, the game getting killed has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that it is online only. If it gets killed, sure, you won't be able to play. But if isn't getting updated, why would you want to play it? There would be no content past what's already there. For new players they could complete all the missions in what, 2 weeks? And for current players, no content to play at all.


Online only is not the culprit here.

The reason "online" is the culprit is because there is no updates. Other then trying to get all characters and weapons that would be the only replay value.

I am actaully running out of coins for for trainings. So i have to play to get things to sell for coins. Otherwise i can stop training.

I am going to give this game a about 2 more weeks (for moblie) and then i will just delete it and then just play the Facebook version on my phone instead.

Very sad to see this happening to such a great game. I'm 99% sure now this will be closed soon as they're losing their base and once you lose that it's almost impossible to get it back.

But I think what may have really killed this game were the hackers and cheats dominating the game. Piracy is bad for business and may have killed this.

And as well the other thing is that there have been so many awesome games released on iOS that this game just cannot compete any longer.

The game getting killed means you can never play it again on your phone because it requires an online connection, right? I like offline games, where if their support stops you can still play them on the current iOS. That's why we can still play a lot of games that are older or have even been removed from the App Store. Online only dies forever when they pull the plug. That's why anyone should think about how much time and money they put into something so fleeting. I would love this game as an offline game. But it probably would never happen. But if it did, then we could play through it like video games before they got on-the-line. So it's been fun while it's lasted.
