MW Live 7 / Rollbacks Coming / Bangkok Ending 411

Yesterday Blue Eyed Nate had his Mafia Wars Live Show and well they did it on the fly as time was limited and they answered a bunch of question the players asked. The one question & answer that got everyone’s attention was the one about the war loot exploit that alot of players got and catapulted most of them over 200,000 on their Attack & Defensive Weapons. Well Nate said on the show to watch for rollbacks to those players. So ROLLBACKS ARE COMING !!!

I can just see the mess this is gonna turn into because you know innocent players will be caught in this rollback. You can see what Nate has to say about it for yourself by going here and watching the recorded Mafia Wars Live Show  http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/16278259 

Now here is is the 411 on the closing of Bangkok & the Mission.

  1. […] in Mafia Wars were coming. We told you about how Nate the Community Manager said it on their Mafia Wars Live Show & then the follow up confirmation with the Mafia Wars Blog.  Then last night as we were LIVE […]

  2. Another dumb city closure. There are new people starting to play everyday and they are losing out on skill points and rewards from the closed cities. How is a level 250 going to be able to do anything in Vegas, Italy and Brazil without the vaults that helps them with stamina, health, and energy? Not to mention the missed skill points they will add to those and attack and defense skills. All they care about is making money by the constant RP pop-up. Also with the Season Icing Event going on it is taking away from people that want to complete every job there is in the game. The amount of stamina needed in those fighting jobs in Vegas and Italy is ridiculous just like the energy needed to do Brazil.

  3. Really and you know Nate is wrong how ??? Yes Zynga is going public soon and why would it be bad to roll back people who used a script to get the War Loot and are you saying only the CC players did this ? And yes they did rollbaqck people for the Bangkok Bhat glitch. Releasing new stronger loot does not solve the problem what will solve it in the future is better coding on zynga’s part to prevent this from happening again.

  4. Roll Backs are NOT Coming. Blue Eyed Nate spoke without knowing what the heck he is talking about…. Z has filled for the IPO and the company will go public… It would look REALLY Bad to loose THOUSANDS of CC Players over this…. Did they Roll Back all the people when Bangkok started and some people got the Baht glitch and were able to buy all the Faction Store loot they wanted….. NO…. And they won’t Roll Back now…. It would be financial suicide and they can not afford that…. If they want to TRY to make up for it all they have to do is release more fight loot with great stats and the War Loot will be worthless….. I’m tired of hearing everyone crying wolf about Roll Backs……
