This Week In Mafia Wars & What's Coming Next Week

Ok here is what Zynga put out in their Official Mafia Wars Blog and of course I had to add my 2 cents next to the stuff LOL. The worst thing coming are the ROLLBACKS !!! 

Released This Week
Changes to Assassin Boss Fight: The Raven ( Still Sucks ) 
In response to player feedback, we tripled the Sniper Shot drop rate and removed the third achievement, "Requiescat in Pace Centesimus."
Another Fighting Performance Update! ( Not Bad ) 
Clicking the “Power Attack” button in rapid succession now results in the attacks being batch processed, which improves performance for a better experience.
Global Mission: Betrayal In Bangkok (Bye Bangkok Bring on Chicago ) 
This may be your last night in Bangkok, but one night can make the world your oyster. The city is shutting down on 8/3, so you'll need to raid it while you still can.

TWO new Collector's Edition Items added to the Marketplace each week in August!
Announcing the Official Mafia Wars T-Shirt Design Contest Finalists ( Congrats Finalists )

Some people collected more war loot than they should have. We'll be taking some of it back soon.
Farmers Insurance Loot Mastery Event

This Week's Major Bug Fixes ( There are still lots more )

Mission Mania ( This Should Be Interesting )
A new addition is coming to Missions. Use Mission boosts to help you finish your tasks more quickly and efficiently.
New Mission Event: Wild Things ( Boy This One Is Gonna Piss People Off ) 
You'll need to steal from Private Zoos to build up your illegal exotic animals business. Take care of your pet felines and you'll be rewarded with the Golden Tiger (63 attack, 153 defense).
Level Up Your Family ( They Should Cancel This Til All Our Family Is Included In The Module ) 
Socialism is making a comeback. Do jobs, fight, and more to earn Family experience points and level up as a Family. You will all be rewarded for working together.

Brazil Ruby Level Loot Event Starts, Stamina Packs Are Here & A Ton Of Loot Made Giftable

Well looks like we got the new Brazil Ruby Level Loot Event and they set it up like they did the X-Men Event but no word if you will lose the loot if you have to much or if there are limits on how much you can collect. I will get you more on the specific when the 411 comes out. 

Here is what we got so far. the event is scheduled to go on till July 22nd. & you can only collect them from a district you have mastered to Ruby Level ( if you havent got any districts mastered to ruby no loot items for you ) 

So basically you have the chance to just go back and do Ruby level jobs over and over and you get the new loot. But you will NOT get double loot with your Icepick crew Sorry. You can keep track of the new loot right on your mission bar as it will have a big ruby star on far right which will open it up. 

Here are the items & values of the new Ruby Loot :

  • Firefly (A:51 D:107)
  • Cursed Mask (A:106 D:53)
  • Banshee (A:55 D:108)
  • Arabian Stallion (A:109 D:52)
  • Thread 40 Automatic (A:107 D:51) 
  • High Vis Vest (A:52 D:106) 
  • Road Burn (A:105 D:55)
Oh By the way the stamina Packs Have arrived and you can get one every 16 hours. WOO HOO !!! Finally 

Now on to some good new for families & traders. Zynga has made a ton of loot giftable today. Looks like loot with a value of up to 65 attack or defense is now giftable to everyone and they have also made other stuff giftable and I am posting a list of stuff now giftable and it is a huge list.

The Raven Is Back And Yes It Has Been Nerfed

I apologize for using this site for my blog but my regular one is still down.

The Raven is back from his retreat to Cuba and guess what he is now harder than before and just as elusive as before. He must of took some steroids while there as his health increased and they have removed the shotgun blast in favor for a new weapon called the sniper shot.

Lets start with the fact his health has been increased for the 30,000 it was to 55,000. YES 55,000 !!! WTF !!!

The next thing is that the Shotgun Blasts we normally use for boss fights have been replaced by Sniper Shots which are not giftable like the Shotgun Blasts, you have to get them by icing people in fights from what I have seen so far or of course you can buy them in the market place along with the rest of the weapons needed to beat the Raven. NOT GONNA HAPPEN ! 

FYI the New Sniper Shots do around 150 to 250 damage each.The loot drop rates suck on getting the items need to fight the raven too. 

Next thing is the Combos, and now they are really important in the fight, while the first 2 are fine and work for everyone the 3rd one which causes the most damage is going to change from what I am reading into this lovely red message they put on the combo screen.
"There are 6 different red C-C-C-combos when you fight the Assassin. That means the red combo that works for you may not be the same for your friends.".

Are you kidding me !?!? WTF !!! What ever happened to a fair and balanced game Zynga. Don't you think this stupid boss fight is challenging enough with out this one. Anyhow ...

In my opinion they screwed up a crappy boss fight even more than it was. They have made it so people are just gonna get pissed and not do it and for the new players not to mention the veterans, it is just gonna frustrate them even more. This is a perfect example of why you are losing players at an alarming rate. You keep messing with the game dynamics and just piss everyone off. Did you ever hear the phrase "If it ain't broke dont fix it." ? Learn it fast my friends. 

Bottom line here is that they screwed up a perfectly bad boss fight. In my opinion it is not worth the aggravation or time to do this thing. They added 25,000 more health to the boss, took away the gifting of the parts, messed with the combos and for a piece of loot that from all indications will be obsolete in 2 months & a couple of achievements and didn't increase the timer to allow more time for all these changes. What do they think we have time to just sit here for 8 hours to farm the items to just beat the Raven and if you don't beat him in the allotted time you wont see him like 3 more days after that. I think not, so the return of the Raven in my eyes is a huge failure and I guess I wont be getting this loot or achievements. Oh Well .
