*Windows 8 phone alert!*

Mon Jun 17, 2019 8:22 pm
The Facebook page gave us a notice.

Microsoft has been gradually phasing out Windows 8.  On July 1st, 2019, they will no longer distribute app updates on the Windows 8 phone version.

This means that if you're a player who plays on a Windows 8 phone, this game cannot receive any new updates, and you'll likely not be able to play anymore on that phone.

The Facebook post said to upgrade to Windows 10, or contact customer service to transfer progress to Android/ios.  

Keep in mind that this change is on Microsoft's end, not Gameloft's.

Thought you oughta know.

So if a user wants to stay on Windows, he will not be able to?
I find it unfair on the part of Microsoft.

You can stay on Windows, but you have to upgrade to Windows 10.

<~~~~ Points at what Live Your Dreams just pointed out

That is the important thing. *IF* your evice can support Windows 10 or Mobile windows 10 you should have no problems. It is only if they are old / slow enough that they cannot there is a problem.

If you have a choice, always go with android/ios rather than windows for a mobile game. Windows is always seeming like the first to lose support.
