Cuba, Moscow & Bangkok set for a return?

Cuba, Moscow & Bangkok set for a return?


Read MWLL blog lately?

Sure it maybe full of every aspect of the game plus more, but if you weed out a few of the posts, its all about Cuba, Moscow & Bangkok! Zynga have seemingly decided to get them pulled from the game all together and/or anything to do with them... even collections having their quantitys reset to zero.

But how about another scenario?

Mafia Studios/Zynga promised its players a new destination. Sweet! But...? where is it?

They cant release another copy and paste city of the template for Brazil? Brazil, Chicago & London all have the same code! Whereas New York & Cuba were a pair, Moscow & Bangkok another pair, and Vegas & Italy been the other pair. Pairs of the same code. Mafia studio doesnt seem to be wanting to produce anything unique and new, not with a flailing playerbase, any errors/glitches with new code could cost them thousands of the remaing playingbase which would do more damage than good, so why not stick with something familiar with the diehard players?

WHY NOT BRING BACK OLD LOCATIONS?

A light bulb has gone off in someones head over in Zynga land to do just that. Alot of players have bid there goodbyes from 6million daily to a mere two-three hundred thousand odd. Not all have said there goodbyes, some have just disappeared, others just gradually stopped playing, However some wanted to go out in a blaze, Posting everywhere, On Zynga defunct forum/player support, in there family/clan groups and in various pages (MWLL/MWSCRIPTS etc) One of the main postings that can be seen in those times is, "I would of stayed if you had of brought (sp) back the old cities" however now days you hardly see those kinda posts because most have seen it as pointless guidence to a company that doesnt like to communicate and better themselves.

Setting the scene...
You were locked out of Cuba (Plus other destinations) by a gang of goons "The Neo-Imperium" you were lucky to get out alive (yawn) But now you have finally managed to get back and your left with nothing.....

Zynga resets everything, All players go in with an equal chance. 
No one has any of the "new good loot" so no ones maxed on loot.
No collections already vaulted with millions of extras that can be revaulted to give "an unfair advantage".
No one has billions of Cuban Pesos.
No propertys ready to be collected.

Zynga are counting that the people that leave the game when they notice the above will be a small number compared to the players that come back because of old locations.

Zynga also dont have to do any extra work, just tweak all the Cash/Collections/Properties to Zero, reset the mastery and a seemingly new destination it is. And if they slow release them all, that will be 3 "new" destinations for the year and all the players will have forgotten about a brand new location that was promised. Well done!

Sidenote:Nothing set in stone... however, some of the backcode sugguests the above might just happen

A little updated art is always good too.

I say bring it on, my boredum of the remaints of this copy paste game is getting stale.

EDIT: I Shared this with Jen aswell, who made an article and bet me to posting, hers has some great info and facts/figures on surveys and city releases dates, Check it out here
