A No Holds Barred Approach.

>The Ultimate Event Failure

>

Well once again Zynga has proven how they can screw up an event. Tonite they blew up the Armored Truck LIVE on USTREAM in celebration of US the players. LMAO what a joke.

First off the announcer was horrible and not professional, he had no idea what to talk about and gave us no real info on the event. None of the Mafia Wars executives were there, only low level staff. Even the CEO Mark Pincus didnt show up !!!
They got a celebrity to blow up the truck, Snoop Dogg. Are you kidding me ??? They said they couldn’t think of a better person to do it. LMAO !!! I could and so could the entire Mafia Wars Community. They get a rapper, a gangsta, a person who has no idea what Mafia Wars is and told everyone to buy the game in the stores. Plus the fact all he did was curse up a storm and even worse was BLOCKED THE SHOT of the explosion.
I mean come on they could of got Joe Pesci, DeNiro, the cast from the Sopranos. How about that for a celebrity guest to blow up the truck. They would of been a better choice and would of represented the game better as they played Mafia members.
This was a complete waste of time for all of us, a total failure on Zynga’s part. I mean the celebrity you got cursed so much a truck driver would of blushed. They should of prepared him better for the event and told him no cursing. I mean come on some of us had our kids watching because we thought it would be fun for them to see.
The Mafia Wars Community as a whole I can assure you were very disappointed. The event was a complete FAIL !!! We were all Zynga’d !!! I wonder who will win the prizes of $25,000 and all those iPads. I bet Snoop Dogg gets one LOL !!!

  1. >Please, this is Snoop up there, not Pat Boone. Did anyone really think he WASN'T going to swear? I'm not a fan, but even I know that every third word out of his mouth is swearing. If people don't know that I would ask what rock they've been living under for the last 15 or 20 years!

  3. >I agree with your opinion, but a few things irk me about this…The contractions of would've and should've are short for "would HAVE" and "should HAVE", not "would of" and "should of".Why do SOOO many people say "would of" today??? Don't you even know what you're saying? Just because it sounds like would of, doesn't mean it is that way 😛

  9. >My favorite part was when they noticed money blowing away from the armored truck after it exploded. Ummm…they were destroying the evidence, not the money! Not even the stupidest criminal on earth would leave the money in the truck before blowing it up. WTF?

  10. >Mission accomplished for Zynga. They got the "job" done (No energy points required). So many people tuned in and were disappointed. They must be doing something right…They've got millions of people wasting their time everyday leading us from one country to the next playing a virtual Mafia World. It will never end.

  14. >Just another screw up for Zynga. The whole thing was a joke. My daughter could of done better. Speaking of ..i let her watch it for she thought it would be cool. Not thinking Snoop would be so foul!!!! They should of warned him. She did get to see and her comment "how boring" LOL out of the mouths of babes. That was 30 mins of my life I can't get back and sorry I wasted more time on Zynga.

  15. >I don't think they did a great job and Snoop was pretty meh as far as celebs go. But if people were upset that he was swearing while their kids were watching, I would have to ask why they are letting their kids play a game where violence is king? That's sorta hypocritical. I think most people would say that violence trumps swearing everytime.
