Buzz Craft


Because there isn’t enough begging already going on, Zynga presents us with a time constricted mega begging event called Buzz Craft. They should call it Buzz Kill because it totally caters to the bots. If you think Buzz Craft looks familiar, click your home banner module over 7 spots and you will see it again where it's called Crafter's Choice!  I’m busy today and tomorrow and won’t be online to play this event. I have 2 options. One would be to ignore the event and miss out on the loot and the other would be to run my favorite fully automated script for the next 2 days, steal all the requests and jam up Zynga’s servers with as many calls as possible. I haven’t decided but since the event only lasts 2 days and you can only ask for parts every 8 hours I’ve already got a late start. The bots will get most of the requests and those trying to get them manually or using non-automated scanners, good luck with that! This event also explains the 4 mystery items we showed to yesterday and means we will probably see 3 more rounds of this crap [1]. The in-game instructions and a walkthrough written by Zynga is provided below. The original can be found here.
