Good for Rebels, the Disney developing team turned to the dark side long time ago....

Let's hope that Zynga isn't so dumb that they forget to add the Solo skin to the Solo event.

Could we possibly have an offical swc forum and communication with the development team again?

I don't know much about Zynga, but they have a game, 'Empires & Allies' and they were developing it everyday.
The game E&A is pretty similar to SWC.

They also had an official forum for their games.

Disney might be doing a good deal with Zynga, but we will know the greatness of Zynga only when they do some developments.

I am still sceptical at this arrangement.

Should they make an official forum down the line, assuming they're good guys and all, I think I'd stay here nonetheless. This site is simple, useful and overall nice. Why change it?

Can't get worse, that's for sure. Very optimistic. Also feel that the game is guaranteed to get more adverts, which is fine...in moderation. I think the 'Elite' level or whatever that was called and spotted in the code is now on hold. Maybe Zynga will erase old SWC "canon" rules and fix this hot mess with prejudice.

This might be good news for the game. Zynga is a dedicated game developer whereas Disney is a media conglomerate. For Zynga SWC might become a core business while at Disney it would forever be peripheral. So they might make a real effort to pull SWC out of the doldrums. Or they might pull the plug....
We'll see. here is the company profile if you like financials ;-)

This is interesting. Zynga used to be really big thanks to Facebook games. (Farmville) But that changed a long time ago. As far as I know they've shrunken a lot due to bad results, but were recently recovering.

The good news is at least that it's a real developer. Maybe they'll finally fix the Rodian sniper GR en Jet mess in a proper way.

The other good news is that Disney has apparently not given up on this game yet. There were signs of this due to the many attempts at balance fixes recently, but this is the first real evidence.

The bad news is that it's a F2P game developer. Fuckery is automatically implied.

In addition 2 new mobile games. Where are the real games Disney. Stop messing with the Starwars license.

It's weird that EA didn't get this as they're responsible for all the other games. Or is that changing now as well.


Don't expect too many bug fixes though. Taking over someone elses code is a nightmare and this game seems made with ducttape and prayers.

If EA gets Star Wars Commander, we would have to pay for new units. At least Disney allows hard-core F2P gamers to get the units if you play regularly.
But with EA, Its a whole different story. They'll ask you to pay for literally everything.

And we might have:

- HQ 11 ; $99.99
- New Unit ; $9.99

And more shit like that. So may be that is the reason they're giving Star Wars Commander to Zynga.

I think that with Zynga there will be some pay-to-get-only items which unless is about new powerful units you can't play without is not a bad thing. There are people that would probably pay a reasonable price to get another cantina, lab or any other building. Let's wait and see.
