Purely from a multi million $$$ company's standpoint, shutting down the forums is a totally reasonable decision (wether we like it or not). If Supecell decides to close down the forums because there are only 300 active users, then they sure won't adapt to the opinion of those 300 users.

    Well said

    I know I already accepted this in my mind
    but I also know my heart will say otherwise once it's gone.

    All good things come to an end ;'(

    I still agree the forums is the best way to communicate, regarding problems and even for community absolutely. It's just unfortunate other platforms are taking over.

    Closure of the forum.... This is the worst ever decision taken by Supercell. I have been ghosting around here since 2014. Created an account recently just because I had to post invitation for my clan. I bet there must be thousands like me, who just come here to read the discussions, bugs, updates, things that are between lines.... I realize now, that i should have posted and participated in active discussions.
    Other platforms can never replace this forum as serious and deep discussions can be going only on this type of platform (I wonder how would i search an old topic on FB or Reddit). Supercell's decision makers must give it a second thought.

    P.S. - Great Job Darian!!! Hats off...

    The motto here: "It is what it is".
    Twitter and Facebook are mostly outlets for them to advertise, and to publish news. Both are no platforms to discuss. Youtube also is mostly a showcase, no one is interested in the comments.

    Discord is no official Supercell channel, and at best replaces global. Can be fun, but no platform to discuss.

    That leaves us with the forum for discussions and input of users. 300 active ones, around 6-7000 readers in total. Not many, I agree, but I would think quite valuable. Especially since the active ones are the ones promoting the game, trying to help improving the game etc.

    So is Supercell to blame? Well yes, but I doubt they care if we blame them. They could have promoted this place, they could have listened to us more, heck they could even have asked us if we had any ideas. But let's face it: removing the forums is easier, cheaper, and silences those pesky people with strong opinions.

    It is what it is indeed.

    Other platforms are not taking over. Other platforms are more important to them, but they have a completely different function.

    It is like taking away someones car, and then say: well you have a fridge and an oven, use those. Both are nice appliances, but will not get you from a to b.

    that's part of the problem that's got us here in the first place. Why link to forums is not there is what you should be asking

    Good point, can agree other platforms can't do what the forums do best

    Imo forums could remain as a read only where SC posts news and etc. Easier to track then Twitter imo

    No, they can't.

    That would still have all the security risks that would go with continuing the forums in their present form.
