    I must admit I have been playing a lot less since the news came out and it was unclear if we would continue.
    Stones have stopped but have they said the servers will shut down?

    Read that Apple will start to regulate lootboxes. This could spell trouble for many games centered around gatcha mechanics. The games with lootboxes will have to start telling the actual chances for lootbox items.

    It's not just Europe but whole appstore wich is a pretty big deal with the immense popularity apple has in Japan.

    As far as I know, this is the very first maintenance fully in sync between EU and US.
    I strongly suspect they are working on merging both servers.

    Might be difficult w/ Player ID potential conflicts though...
    Wait'n'See.

    EDIT: I'm even more convinced, now that it's over and *nothing* has been announced at the end.

    I'm playing on Guild Wars 2. They have a in-game box buying system as well. They changed it a few days ago. some people say it's due to european regulation changes. Let see if Gungho announcement and GW2 changes are linked...

    Not a lot of point. I believe Gung-ho are going to restructure the whole IAP thing. Magic stones will be used for the REM only, and since they are not going to be on sale, but earned/ given away in game it will eliminate any loot box type of thing. I think that using real money will be only for increasing box size restoring stamina and continues. You will use cash to buy something like magic stones which will be for everything except REM.

    ok, so for the very last pad eu competition (and that glorious medal winner badge), who can correctly guess the date they turn the server off?

    Here's my guess:

    March 1st, 3am UTC.

    Perhaps they will merge us with the NA server on Valentine’s Day.
    The perfect match :kiss::kiss:

    Seeing as it's still available for download in the App Store, my guess would be not anytime soon.
    This game is only rated ⭐️⭐️⭐️ in JP, yet they still get loads of new stuff. We love it so in return they will love us and let us keep on playing whilst they figure out how to squeeze us for more beans.

    GH shows the required rates for loot boxes now after the latest update according to the developer's agreement announced by Apple.
    So I think (or hope) that GH will resume its Magic stone Shop in the near future:)

    Well, we’ve been updated and it’s looking good.
    Not sure why they would bother if they were going to get rid of us.
    Might be aligning us to NA - thought the daily dungeon arrived late the other day but probably just me.
    I’m still enjoying it and I like the new gacha lineup info.
    Makes me feel less sad that I haven’t got certain cards when I see the percentages :)

    Edit: the specials are def appearing when they would if we were in the USA.
    is this a clue or a superb instance of conspiracy theory combining with ability of being able to add 2+2 and making 5?

    NA normally gets Stuff last. I don't see any benefit of being aligned to their server. They also have no issues with lootbox, so EU will remain separate and it is a case for gung-ho to work out how to make money. And since there has been no notice of a server closure I think pad EU is here for a while yet.
