My WI FI is active and I can play on the net with other silly app games but LI keeps saying its offline . IS everyone "offline" or is it just me ?

This is killing my kudo minimum wage harvest .

I was also getting this message a few days ago. To resolve it, I think I logged into Activate via the option in Lost Islands, which then promoted me to 'agree' to some revised terms & conditions. Once I had done this it put me back 'online' straightaway, where I had lots of kudos gifts waiting for me. Hopefully something similar will work for you.

Yeah, happened here too. Just click on the kudos count and after a few seconds hit "Accept" and you will be back online. It is an Activate thing, not just Lost Islands.

I barely get 5 return gifts a day and gift daily when I remember these days from a full friends list. I only do it because sometimes you get a gem and it might help someone.

At this point, I think it is safe to assume Lost Islands is in full harvest mode and won't be updated.

Probably because my friends list is full. I hardly play anymore, I have nothing left to buy with gems so right now there is nothing left than just amassing more resources I will never use.

Gosh darn it, I dreamed that LI was making an ending sale or something along those lines and I almost opened the game this morning thinking I actually saw an ad for it. Kinda wishing the game got actual closure now, maybe a final quest where you upgrade the dais to a real Portal and your duties are done, though the game can be kept in harvest mode since they could always use the players' help.

I am not quite finished with it . I want my Admiral Thumpback . I kinda feel for new players not having as much fun as we did but there is still fun to had from that game . I hope all the limited time companions will have a chance to be in the wishing well for everyone . New players will have an easier time getting their hands on Giant and Alter Ego houses then we did .

I never played Skylanders Universe so i wont know what I missed and well same goes for new Lost Island Portal Masters just starting their career .

The game will not be shut down, there is still plenty of playability for new players. It's got fun for even non Skylanders collectors. And if people buy gems for it, that's just money in their pocket. It has obviously been put into what is called "harvest mode" in software development - where you just collect ongoing money but are not actively developing for it. I doubt they do anything else, short of maybe a bug fix if something bad is discovered (unlikely).

Great little fun game, but set your own "end goal" and call it a day once you reach it. I still check every few days even though there is nothing left to do but collect some resources that will never be used - mainly because I played it so long.

defpally: doubt there'll be anything resembling bug fixes. Plenty of games wiped due to visiting friends' kingdoms - and they've never fixed that. Pity ALL the sanctuaries can't be upgraded despite having plenty of gems. Technically, finishing the game is now impossible.

Well,you can if you can afford the gems. But without paying copious amounts of cash, you'd need to get high gem quantities from quests(which aren't happening since only the temp quests have gems) to even start farming at a good rate, and THEN have 1200 for each and every one. So yeah, by all intents and purposes,impossible.

Probably not impossible but there is so much better things to spend your 1000 plus gems on .

Actually what will really hurt is no more discounts . The age of " I have more gems then i can spend " is over . We lucky few should appreciate what we got .

Ahh well i have played kingdom games without unlocking 97 percent premium goodies . I still got my fun from it .

No, you can't purchase all the sanctums. At least I can't. I've got 16K gems sitting idle, and the upgrade store only offers five sanctums - magic, fire, tech, undead and water. So unless the game is updated and the remaining sanctums are put back in the shop, the game no longer allows you to buy everything.

Yeah, the disappointing part is there are some loose ends. I know eventually it was time to sunset the game, and they did dump the houses on the list, but left many things now unobtainable and left the last Skylander (Gnarly Barkley) completely out. Of course the same could be said for the reposes they started making unique (Blizzard Chill was one they made, but many were not). I think at minimum they should have just put everything out there to buy with gems even if they weren't included in the daily sale rotation - it would seem to make sense and encourage gem purchases.

It just seems like they went from decision to shut down very quickly, told the dev(s) they had a very limited time to close it off, then left it.

Can they just abandon a game that some people have spent actual $$ on? I've never really thought about it. Seems like a lot of people are getting screwed over with this.

Where is Advisor Orville right now to let us know what is going on? Strangely silent he is. I guess he does not want to take the heat.

Yes, they can abandon a game that people have spent money on.

No one would think it fair that a company be forced to maintain a product indefinitely just because people bought it.

At some point, each and every app any of us buy will be abandoned. The app will continue to work for a while, but with each iOS update there is a chance an older app will break. Eventually it will, and that will be that.

Games periodically stop being available in the store. When that happens, you need to make sure you have your own back-up (including all in-app purchases) because if you ever upgrade to a newer tablet, that will be the only way to continue to play those games.

Such is the nature of tablet games.

First noble truth of Buddha


Dukkha exists - unsatisfactoriness, suffering, discontent, stress (to be Investigated)

Nothing lasts forever. When you understand this it makes it easier to not be so attached to what you're experiencing. So when you're experiencing something you think is bad, you can relax in the knowledge that nothing bad lasts forever. Similarly, when you're experiencing happiness you can also realize that nothing good lasts forever. Why would you want to do that? Because it helps you to be more aware of how you're reacting to your experiences at all times.
