    Windows phone 7.8 user here. Will never give it up for any phone.

    Someone gave me a lumia 650 as a backup, but i don't like pure
    touchscreens, i prefer the hardware keyboard.

    Anyways, i play games on it occasionally, got some achievements too.

    Don't care about apps or feel any are missing.

    The phone part works fine.

    later

    would love another wp it does what i need and i much prefer to my family's i phones and android.

    but unless i can get another 930xl then it seems like an android for me.
    Razer the company that makes gaming peripherals is launching a gaming android phone so may look into this.

    good bye WPcry

    That Razor phone is the only thing that I would switch to right now, but $699 USD is a rough price tag.

    Well at least my landline still works laugh
    I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

    This was unfortunate, game Devs forced to keep Windows Phone (WP) progression to their games dead. Note that this was never going to be amazing like well Microsoft's ideas of updating phone useable games.

    Never in my life will I ever respect such a noteable decision...

    It amazes me that someone has a windows phone still
    I got a Windows phone for the first time about a year ago to try and get achievements for a contest. I still play games on it and up until recently, was playing this game and getting achievements as well.
    I like stuff

    Looks like progress no longer syncs for Windows -> Windows Phone now for Dungeon Hunter 5. PC is on a newer update, and trying to connect to Facebook for cloud data results in the game requesting a new update that doesn't exist. Not sure if Windows Phone -> Windows works or not.

    Just completed on my phone. I have the opposite problem: I can't log in on my Win10 device. I've gotten past the first few stages, to the point it actually allows you to actually tap what you want instead of holding your hand like some 2-year-old.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't show me as being logged in. And if I tap on the Log-In button on my Win10 tablet, the game crashes. This is preventing me from even seeing an achievement, much less getting anywhere. Can't say I saw it do the "Allow Xbox To Interact" message pop up, either.

    Haven't even attempted a cloud data upload with Facebook. Not sure if I really want to risk it. But it would be nice to be able to just get everything cleared and completed; I got REAL lucky with a dark 4-star staff on my phone version that also gave a good +HP per hit, which really boosted my staying power. It was enough to beat level 45 without a potion or rez, once I leveled up another 4-star green armor for defense.

    So Dragon Mania Legends is the only one fully currently disabled achievement wise, correct?

    Dragon Mania Legends = Dead
    Asphalt 8 = Partially dead, if you don't update and play Seasons offline
    Dungeon Hunter 5 = Dead, but unknown. Latest update killed support, but might be able to play campaign offline.

    I found that I've been having problems connecting to Facebook on World at Arms WP, so I am unable to sync achievements. The Xbox features still work. It pulls the achievements I have but doesn't pop them. Everything works normally on Win8.
  • Posted on 09 November 17 at 17:19
    World at Arms is on its way out. They've already switched over to MSN for cloud support instead of Xbox. Good luck.

    Really hating myself for holding off on these. I'm finding some off them to be pretty easy. Almost done with Age of Sparta though. Also need to do Order and Chaos soon.

    Seems to be true, won't currently connect to xbox services, or sync achievements to phone/xbox.

    Yet people on my list are still unlocking in it. Did you recently download it, or is it an old installation?

    Ah good to hear I suppose. It's an old-er installation, but could have been updated. I'll try checking in a few.

    Was just working the other day, and then saw the post and tried unlocking an achievement which hasn't registered.

    (also the in game button to connect to XBL doesn't seem to work, and other WP games are unlocking/syncing just fine - will test more later)
