Avengers Alliance Playdom shutting down anger

The nightmare moment has just arrived for Avengers Alliance players on Playdom. Those who play on the version have just been given a message that Marvel’s Avenger Alliance is shutting down, with mass anger inevitably starting to run its course.

Playdom are already a company who find it difficult to give reasons for their actions sometimes, but this may just be the final nail in the coffin for those who play the game via Playdom’s website.

Those logging into the game today have been given the above message, confirming that Avengers Alliance is shutting down on April 20, 2014. Playdom has given no solid reasoning behind the move either which is hard to take, only to say that the closure will allow them to build ‘more engaging’ games – ouch.

As you can imagine, users are not very happy about this move at all given the time and effort they have spending tirelessly grinding away for items.

Playdom has also used the same statement to warn that they will not be able to offer any refunds of any items purchased on the game after it closes in April. For now, players can still play the game on Facebook but that statement sounds very harsh indeed on Playdom players.

We can already see that a petition has been set up to convince Playdom to reverse the decision, some arguing that it offers features not available on the Avengers Alliance Facebook version. Some would even be willing to pay a subscription to keep the game running on Playdom if necessary.

We think the lack of community feedback has once again caused the anger here. By saying that they are shutting down to ‘build more engaging’ games doesn’t help either.

Give us your reaction to Avengers Alliance shutting down. By the way, happy two year anniversary.
