    Good for people who haven't finished it - I'm personally indifferent to this news laugh wish this happened more often with other games though!

    I got so happy seeing this when I just booted it up, still have to grind out the last fifty levels.

    Can't install the WP version on my Win10 Phone... Won't be able to play it (on my phone) despite this news. :(

    Didn't bother starting these since it wasn't a lot of time, but now I might just try and do them both since we have three months to do them now.

    Players no longer have just a couple of days to get the achievements as the servers will now be running until the end of September.
    Shout out to whoever made this happen. There seemed to be good reason to shut down the servers but plenty of advance warning is the right way to do it.

    Unless you want to spend close to $100 in the store on tokens, I would highly recommend not trying this. I was at lvl 63 and spent $41 in the store, only got to lvl 100 a couple days ago. It is still a grind.

    Ok, scrap that...
    I wasn't able to find the correct version through normal search... That got me to the same I already had in my library (maybe the Win (PC) version?).
    However after searching in the store for "Gameloft" (the publisher) and showing all their games I was able to find the game and start it.

    But yeah, for the real completionists it's not a good choice to start if you haven't already... It will be a massive grind to get to player lvl 100 (which is one of the cheevos). As my completion rate is already f$cked by other games I myself don't care. :O

    So long story short:
    - You can still obtain it on Windows 10 (Mobile)
    - If you haven't started yet and care about your completion rate... Don't bother starting

    Is three months of playing it still not enough time?

    Depends on if you're starting from scratch - if you are, then it will be tough but doable. If you aren't, then yes you should be able to do it - it is very grindy though.

    Wow you dont see extensions like this very often. I only have 50 game wins and 50 bonus goals (IIRC this achievement is kind of a bitch) but I've put a lot of time into this game on the Windows Phone version.

    Now IIRC if you start this game on the Windows Phone version then you can only complete it on Windows phone because the achievements will sync right and you can't complete it right?

    I was lucky and this glitched and awarded me the level 100 achievement waaaaaay before it should have.

    I would be starting from scratch. Can you only play a couple games of this a day because of needing tokens to play? Is that what makes it really long?

    Might try for this... it's all I have left in the game and haven't fired up my surface in over a year. I remember it being super grindy and that is why I originally stopped.

    Wished I lucked into the glitch... would've made this a super fast completion.

    Ive managed to climb from lvl 22 to 63 since the announcement of closure roughly a month ago and kinda gave up reaching lvl 100 in time - now I Can actually complete it - wuhuu

    Man, I don't know if I wanna grind out a 200+ completion before September
