I don't think it's Zynga's thing, it's Disney's thing. The Disney games section, especially Star Wars games, has always been a big fucking mess, with projects and games being canceled all the time. It is impressive that SWC has lasted so long.

Zynga would not give up a game that is making a profit at such a low cost, in my opinion. Unless they are about to launch their own Star Wars game with the expectation of even greater profit, some "pay to win" game.

If it was Disney's order to close the game, there is no point writing to Zynga, but you can try.

Well, despite how good it is, it's pretty obvious the game is dead. I only get attacked once per week.

Yet, in a game like Sky Clash I get attacked every 30 minutes. And Sky Clash isn't even a very good game. It's average at best.

Dominations and Empires & Allies were also very good Clash clones, but they've also gone downhill in recent years. I no longer play them. They'll be dead soon, too.

The shelf life for a mobile game is short. Maybe 5 years if you're lucky.

I predicted this as far back as here and the post further back that is linked in the post below. March and April 2019.

GlockShanty wrote:So in this post here I stated that I believe that Zynga have taken on SWC only to extract as much cash as possible out of the Episode IX hype and then shut the game down on, or before, the 6th anniversary of the game in August 2020.

I'd like to get this prediction out there now and say that I honestly believe that this will happen, and also poll the forum and see who else feels the same way.


It was that obvious. Zynga's double-dealing, outright lying and lack of interest were clear. The warning signs were there all along. I knew that the sixth year would be SWC's last.

I put up with a lot of snide comments, but I stuck to what I knew would happen; and I was right. :D

I've played since the very first day the game was released on iOS in August 2014. I'll be sad to see the game go, even sadder to think that I won't be able to be part of my squad any longer.

Prestige was clearly the final level in the game. I voiced that opinion when it was introduced. After all, where do you go from Prestige? Double, or Triple Prestige?

Also I want to reply to this post here;

Ohhhh that's interesting, because it was. :( I just checked Zynga's site too and SWC has been removed from the front page, just as you say.

ANOTHER question answered...

You quickly closed the other thread down DS so unfortunately I can't quote you properly.

So, as to the question with regards to the closure of the game, which I correctly predicted all along, can we finally say;

No refunds according to them. I emailed the CEO and all I got was a reply from a Support Bot with a link that redirects to this;
