    Welp... it's happened. I know some of you folks are sad, some of you folks are happy, and some of you folks don't give half a fuck.

    I just wanted to thank you all for being a fun community for me to spend the past few years of my internet life with. I truly enjoyed my time, and hope y'all did too. Hope we will see each other on the battlefields of some other Star Wars game in the future (except A9 - that dude's a fuckin' twat).

    Congrats to all for finally winning the game.

    It was kinda funny. I went searching for another game besides swgoh to spend time on (since swgoh has a lot of downtime where i can't do anything during the day)

    And then I realized. This is a blessing that the game is gone. I spent way too much time on it. Lets not fill that with more. Bye Bye SWFC, it was fun. But kinda glad its done.

    i wholeheartedly agree. i was actually counting down the days in anticipation knowing that i would have more free time starting april 23.

    btw, in the last two days of operation no bosses would load on ROTB maps. even in a boss boost, the maps were completely empty save for the containers, which i found as the perfect metaphor for this game. on the plus side, it was super easy to burn through 250 ep whenever i forced myself to boot up the game.

    we also still got starship fort tickets, even though LAW was done with. and a new PG was started the very last day, which i found hilarious.

    actually, i take it back. im sad this game is gone, because im gonna miss all of the shenanigans konami threw at us. example: everyone quit after that LAW in march? well let's just host two more LAW's then!

    It was a little sad when I logged on right before I went to bed. Then I noticed an unread message that said "Are we still trading?" that I forgot about.

    So I started the trade and then went to bed.

    This made me literally laugh out loud. Kudos, good sir, for finding the perfect way to permanently log off.

    I heard it was ending and never logged back in, might regret that later not to have one last look at something I spent so much time doing for a couple of years.

    Crazy times.

    That's probably the best way to force ghost this game. It's like Shane riding off into the sunset.

    I think all but one dev walked off after the game was announced to be ending. Compared to the three monkeys bashing a keyboard that there had been for the passed 6 months of rotb, intruder, law, cotr... it was pretty much exactly the same, with just a decision about which grind you wanted to grind for no reason at all. Made it so much easier to just walk away unphased when the thing shut down.

    I've never seen a game close before so I thought they were just going to close it on there end and we would still be able to access all of are hard long years we put into building the perfect deck. Now I'll never know

    Closing on their end means closing the servers.
    Games like SWFC save the data on the server, not your local storage.
