    So I guess every mobile Digimon game is going to be pulled each time they make a new one? That's a bad business model

    Is it? splitting your player base and running two games is pretty pricey and lowers the amount players/money made on both games.

    at the one hand, it's not that bad the Digimon Linkz lasted that long (2-3) years with constanting adding new digimons into the game...but on the other hand I can't really imagine the money the game has squeezed out of its players...

    So it is possible to create an unofficial server.

    Also, it seems they had 2 clients: one for the public (which we used) and one for the administration (I found some empty admin related stuff in their binaries).

    An unnofficial server would be nice for those who'd like to keep playing this game.

    There might be one that pops up. They did it for Toontown and that Cartoon Network MMO... Fusion Fall I think.

    Who wants to sink money into a game from a company that has a record of pulling from the app store every couple of years? Progress, effort, payments - all gone.

    Yeah! It should be 5 or 10 years to terminate it! Too bad app game addictions are too strong to resist... :/

    My wife wasn't happy when it shutdown. She's been playing it for a long time and just got her favorite Digimon (Dukemon X & Crimson Mode) when it was terminated. I really don't get into these app games for this exact reason. Some of them are really good and you can waste a lot of time and money and then it's all gone.

    That one flaw with mobile and MMOs. They go down. But this can also effect console games too. This wraps into lootbox problems. I have a good video link for that though.
