A great reason to play it between now and then is due to Capcom gifting all players 10,000 in-game gem currency.

All in-app purchases will be disabled on Monday, April 23. But any existing purchased in-game gem currency, and those being gifted, can still be used in the game to upgrade characters before the server is shut down.
