    When they do shut down the servers I hope they give us some sort of warning. I plan on making a poster of my town when it's all said and done. That way I have something to show for all my hard work.

    they shut down servers of lots of old games and this will be the same.. they probably won't make it available offline either (why would you want to anyway it would get boring knowing there's nothing new coming)

    for those that invested thousands in the game it's will be a tough luck thanks for the money from EA

    The problem with EA is the deal they have made with FOX and the owners of The Simpsons, this game basically is a promo tool for new episodes and series, whch is why we get those ridiculous episode ties ins, however, if EA don't have a complex deal to promote new stuff, then if like us, they actually care about The Simpsons game, we have to remember that there are 26 seasons of quality stuff that could be implemented into the game, characters, buildings, cars, decorations and much more. There is so much creative content posted by people on here, the two that stick out in my mind, the original 'Chilli Cook-Off' idea posted by someone, and my own 'Attack Of The Homer Clones' - both these ideas have the potential to be a major event, and i have more ideas based along episodes. The only tricky part about this is the dialogue, some will come from the episode, most will have to be written to customise it. This game, for me, as long as EA stop the crap we have been getting lately (episode tie ins/Valentines event/Easter event), can go on for a long time to come. Just my thoughts though

    on your second point, you are correct,. i have FIFA 1012 and can no longer access the servers or download anything for the game, quite frustrating. I've heard there are other gamers who can't access EA's servers to older titles anymore either.

    Yea the game will keep going while the show is still going which I see going up until at least after season 30. And not to mention they also have the movie and the games and the comic series they can add to the game plus the developers have said that if they do a sequel film it'd be after the series ends so I think the game would end about 2 or 3 years after the series ends

    What ridiculous notions. 1) That EA would pull the plug on a game that is clearly still profitable for them (simply look at the gross rankings). 2) That you talked to the EA head developer.

    One of the only things I could see ending this is if Fox pulled their license, and I can't make sense of that either.

    How dare you doubt the words of wisdom?! ;)

    I think even if they stopped making content the severs would still be open for a year or two then just shut it down when the people numbers go down drastically enough to warrant it being closed. Tbh I don't think I have ever gone back to a game to ever notice that it's be deactivated. Lol

    i don't know i don't see the show making it to 30 it's pretty much running on fumes now... plus they plan to kill off a character soon as well who knows how that would impact the show.

    (rumor is sideshow bob might be the one killed.. all they said is the voice actor has got a emmy for the character and it isn't any of the characters voice by hank azaria or immediate Simpsons family)

    :thumbup: Definitely would agree with you. It would just stop updating and stick around just for us to log in and tap and nothing more.

    I must say, a new addiction is spreading already as a backup for when this game does eventually stop going online. And that addiction is.....Clash of Clans. MUAHAHAHAHHAA :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    I would never buy another EA product and I'm sure others would do the same.


    yup

    for me it would be the end of these kind of games where you pay to play

    If they did ( :shock: ) my only hope is they'd give us one final month to redesign/perfect our towns and then send us an auto generated panorama of it to our registered email address. Would make a cool desktop background

    I would be REALLY cool if they put it on a mouse pad, or a coffee mug. All of the completionists would have a physical moments of what they spent hundreds of dollars on.

    Yet another good idea :thumbup: Dont think i would allow anyone near my coffee mug if it had my town on it as i would go mad if someone broke it washing it up or just dropped it infront of me :shock:

    I think a nice big blow up (high quality) poster (framed) would be good to have as well :D

    I was gonna post a similar thing, what with the show supposedly ending at some point.

    So what would people want the game to do in a Simpson less show world? "Tie ins" to old episodes, more events to replace tie ins? Would you guys be interested in playing of they just did the usual events like Easter/Christmas/Halloween?
