Not Naughty Enough...the Naughty Videos Store

Well, i had no plans to build yet ANOTHER stupid limited time property, and I was not surprised to see my feed full of news that there is a glitch associated with it.  I don't even know what the glitch is and I don't care.  I do not even know what this property offers.  I don't care.  Frankly I don't know why anyone does.  I have 69 choices of properties to build from already and still limited to 5 free builds every 18 hours.  So I'm gonna waste my time with this one? Does it offer more than 20 health or more than 6 attack, defense, stamina or energy?  Sorry, the temporary boost to my loot score isn't worth all the damn posting, clicking, and begging.

Frankly, I'm annoyed that I have to move to another page of properties to get to the ones I actually use.  Sorry Zynga, yet another fail. You fail at everything.  I cannot wait to be FREE from from this addiction.  You make it easier and easier everyday with all your glitches, events, restrictions, and modifications ;)

I don't need your naughty videos.

The end is near...for me anyway.

It has been far too long since i blogged.  And I think I finally have something to say.  It is time to quit mafia wars.  I am sure it won't be easy for me, and might take a couple months to totally detox, but it is clear to me now:  I should not spend any more money on this game and should start spending less time on it.  Zynga doesn't deserve meh :P

It has been a fight with zynga from the beginning.  They have fought the player base tooth and nail.  They killed our beloved trading communities.  They loaded us down with event after event.  They failed to fix glitches and errors that were actually annoying and instead made changes to the way we became accustomed to playing the game. They bombarded us with "fire sales"/marketplace promotions.  They continue to offer double builds at very annoying and limited times that are hard for working americans like me to catch (when the obvious simple solution is to make the double builds triggered individually on a timer).  They continue to dump limited time properties on us.  They created an exclusive "VIP" program.

They drove away millions of mafia wars players.

I think the final straw was that I, like many of you, now no longer get proper experience points when attacked, or am being limited to a certain amount. I am now relegated to 25k experience every 5 minutes. (But the final, FINAL, straw was reading of yet ANOTHER limited time property, the Naughty one or whatever it is going to be called.)

Mafia Wars has been a central part of my life for 4 years solid now.  It has been so much fun, and I have made so many real friends.  Zynga truly created something special. But they screwed it up beyond all recognition (i believe the expression is FUBAR :v ).  I mean, this game has gone to places that I don't think Mark Pincus could have ever dreamed up.  The social side of this game is HUGE!!! So many war pages and family pages and help centres and secret groups and blogs and on and on.  I have seen true friendships, and relationships, and even a marriage result from mafia wars.  I have seen amazing teamwork, and hierarchy, and organisation, and camaraderie.  And the camaraderie...that is what really makes it hard to quit.

But it is time.  The game has become not unlike a drug addiction.  The fun part of getting high every day is over. Now it's become this miserable slavery of spending and time consumption and dealing with zynga's crap.

TO ZYNGA AND MARK: you ruined this game.  Just like you are ruining your company. I hope you go bankrupt Mr. Pincus.  That might make me feel better about the stupid amount of money i sent you.

TO ALL MY FRIENDS and FOES: I love you all. You made this game fun and amazing.  Without you there is no mafia wars. And so many of you are leaving the game.

TO ALL THE QUITTERS:  Yes i have strongly disliked the quitters, but soon, I am joining you ;)

From the artist formally known as {ℳ} ßrµ╬µ§, I bid you adieu.  

There is a boycott set to begin at 12:00 AM June 23rd Pacific (California) Time. The FB page for the boycott group is here

***UPDATE*** Mafia Wars/Zynga Fail 6/12

Games are back up and running as of 11:17 AM Pacific Time.

No, Zynga, the Intertubes are fine. Zynga is broken.  I have tried various ways to discover the problem, and here's what I got: 404 error at Farmville, Mafia Wars, and all Zynga games according to reports from other Facebookers.

At a server error, so we cannot log in there to play. 

So I closed the error pop up and clicked "Support" and got this notice:

And as per the usual, the Official Mafia Wars Blog is about as informative as a billboard from 1999.
I guess we'll have to wait and see if Zynga ever comes up for air again.

Rest In Peace: Mafia Wars Cemetary 6/11

Anybody who has been playing this game since 2009 can tell you, we have lost some good friends over the years. People who we were just playing a game with have become close friends and confidants over the years. Here at Mistyfied, we lost Jose back in September of 2011. Some of our friends have also lost people who have been near and dear to them recently, and someone else was smart enough and caring enough to create a group just for this. 

Please join the group and give your respects and condolences.

Pyromaniac Seven Day Sale Event 5/10

Just like the No Strings Attached sale event, this goes on for seven days. We have seven new loot items, and we get skill points with each purchase.

Each day the loot items get a little bit better, and so do the skill points.

Day one item is a Flame Wheel, vehicle 224/164 *and* +1 skill point.
Day two item is 2 Cinders, weapon, 165/224 *and* + 2 skill points.
Day three item is 3 Flame Proofs, armor 164/225 *and* +3 skill points.
Day four item is 4 Embers, animal 225/165 *and* +4 skill points.
Day five item is 5 Flared Ups,  weapon 225/164 *and* +5 skill points.
Day six item is 6 Firebirds, vehicle 164/225 *and* +6 skill points.
Day seven item is 7 Pyromen, henchmen 164/225 *and* +7 skill points.

How the deal works:

So, if I want to end this event with 35 Pyromen, I have to purchase 5 of *each* days deal so that I can purchase 5 Pyromen deals. Pricey.
If you purchase this deal all the way through day seven, one of each day's deal, it will cost 315 Reward Points, and you will get 28 loot items and 28 skill points. This comes out to about 11.25 RP per item with the points included. 
These sales are usually followed by one of those fill-in-the-bar sale events, and this sale usually counts towards completion on that sale as well.
