So it has been several days and servers are still down (at least here in Canada). Has anyone heard if there was an official announcement regarding the cessation of online features for this game? I would be pretty disappointed if they halted this feature without a formal announcement. I know that the online component is not essential (unless of course you care about completing your emblems, which I do), but I strongly feel they should make an announcement to their consumers. At least Disney Infinity respected their fans/consumers, and made it very clear when they would shut down servers, and they had not even been around for as long as Skylanders.
Personally, I feel that if they are still flogging Superchargers Starter Packs at major retailers such as TRU, then they should be upfront with the consumers about the scope of their product's features.

arenne beat me to it. Yes, if they're still selling the toys - especially during one of the biggest sale periods of the year - they should let people know because some people may have gotten back into the PvP side of the game and want to try it out with new toys. It wouldn't hurt to explain this to folks, in my opinion.

TT's servers closed with just a message to play SC. I don't think they care.

Do the aesthetic mods still work and how is racing on the 3DS version or SI?

Here to confirm that this affects the vehicle mod feature added in an update, rendering it unusable (online racing and co-op too obviously), and that strangely enough, SI racing online still works. At least as of a couple weeks ago when I checked. If you wanna still plan and play matches online folks there's your last shot.

I have no idea about the 3DS version.

I remember when people said the online added so much potential content to the game and here's the problem with relying on it. I don't mean to jab or anything, it's just sad this was really the most notable content of the game imo simply because Skylanders had not had online or content added in patches before SC and now it's gone. (As much as I hate vehicles I also thought the mods were cute/best part of them. Why they tied even editing them to a server is beyond me, if they were worried about people hacking for parts then the people who did it would just hack for gearbits to buy everything instead.)

The online mods were the best part about vehicles, and as I said when it came out, props to the dev that thought of it, because it's a great expansion of Trinkets from TT in character models that can actually be messed with little risk. RIP, don't forget to archive Buuzer's videos about them if you liked any.

Oh my gosh, I forgot about trinkets. Honestly, I didn't even care for any particular mods or use them much. Largely because they were so annoying to unlock in the first place. But honestly, they're something that I wish had been in the game since it came out and make... Or well, made... Vehicles feel more complete and gave me *something* to mess with on them that I semi-enjoyed. Those videos really need to be archived before records of this stuff are lost forever.

trinkets was a good idea but totally ruined by microtransactions.

You're drunk. We're talking about trinkets from TT and microtransactions never existed in the main version of that game.
