The Informant Podcast: "Where Family is First"

Episode 268: Who Moved My URL?

For all the fans of the great change management book Who moved my Cheese? You will appreciate the title of this show.  It was a busy week at Spockholm contending with the url change Zynga place on its user base.  We are not criticizing or questioning the need to change it. Companies do things like it all the time. It just highlights how agile and responsive the Spock Team is.

During the mad dash to change all the scripts. A new feature was accidentally released into the wild for Golden Toolbar users.  The level-me-up button. A fancy one click option to jump quickly to the next level, providing you have the right ratio to make it happen.

In general Mafia Wars news we have a New Mission (released early for VIP), we have a new Operation Event, and new Ice Event.  We have also seen a correction to the level cap requirements. The increase in experience necessary drops from the approx. 50% increase to 10%.  Still making the game playable when a person hits the cap. However, making it extremely challenging. So if you are a serial leveler.  You might want to insure your ratio is as low as you can possibly get it.

  • When I lost all my scripts, I realized just how much I depend on them and that if I had no scripts I’d stop playing. When this happened I just walked away. It also made me think about why I am still playing when I let scripts do the playing for me. The scripts were back and working very quickly which I really appreciate.

    Anyway thanks for the show. 🙂
