Migrating to a new platform just for read-only posts is simply not a practical solution because of the costs involved in migrating all of the user info, and running numerous security certifications. We tried exploring that option as well.
    Why not just create another unofficial forum, tho? There are multiple forum software which are free of cost and easy to use.

    So can't you use newer software for this?

    Supercell aren't going to create an unofficial forum.

    Any of us can do so, if we have the resources to run it.

    But that was tried with CR and BB, and those just withered away

    We are where we are and I doubt we can change anything so we have to accept it.

    But this thread currently has 27,844 views in 2 days and the Spring update thread has 106,464 views.

    So presumably whilst fewer people are posting a lot are reading.

    Still, I understand the commercial reasoning for this. If you had $1m to invest to drive growth, where would you spend it? There isnít a magic money tree - SC needs to deliver value to its shareholders who expect a return on their investment.

    I can’t help but think that if SuperCell had promoted the forums a little bit, or even at all, for instance I have guys in my clan who’ve been playing Clash for years and years who didn’t even know that the forums exist, they’d have much more player engagement and wouldn’t be shutting them down.

    Honestly though, this is completely inline with SuperCells modus operandi and doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. I wouldn’t even be surprised to learn that their excuse is false, and the only reason they’re shutting down is to save Tencent a few bucks. Just like they definitely didn’t shut down global so people couldn’t mention the Hong Kong protests and irritate Tencent, right? Wink…wink, lol.

    Anyway, whatever. You’ll never find me on the cesspool known as reddit so I guess this is it. Adieu my fellow clashers.

    Yup, it would be hard to grow it. Realistically, it would just be a replacement community for the current members which retains the forum feel. Tried createaforum.com (https://clashofclansrecruit.createaforum.com/index.php), and a bit of CSS can make it quite similar to this one, ig. There are others like phpBB, MyBB too.
