[Chat (WP)] The fate of Windows server

Hello there, 

Recently, Microsoft representative shared this tweet: https://twitter.com/joebelfiore/status/917071857370595328
It means that there will be no more WP based phones released. At the moment Windows server's community is the smallest comparing to iOS or Android and it is growing slowly (if growing at all).

Considering these recent news I see there three scenarios:

1. IGG will begin advertising the game on Windows platform to hasten the server growth (good)
2. Windows server will be shut down (bad)
3. IGG will allow players to choose the platform for transfer (ugly)

The worst thing which could happen is the server shut down. I believe it is the worst option for both players and IGG (since they're losing the part of solvent players, hence income). 


I'd like everyone shared their thoughts on this matter.

Not necessarily, plus if they did shut it down, not likely soon, WP has a smaller player base and could switch to another platform and be reimbursed if p2p. It's not necessarily a doomsday situation but worth keeping an eye on

I don't think it would take this much effort to make Windows client run on PCs.   Whether there is a market for this game on PCs, that is another question.

PC is not a bad platform for it.   I run my game mostly on PC, (Android emulator Bluestacks) and in most ways prefer this way to playing on a phone.

If they did ever shut it down I would be fully interested in a transfer option.  I'm not sure how that would be "ugly".  They would just need to allow people to change the email address associated with their account and hand out name erasers to anyone with a conflicting name.
