Family Business Mission 5

Share:

Zynga pulled a slick one on us and the the 5th Family Business Mission is now available. The previous 4 Missions offered an advanced warning of at least 3 days. Families used this time to add accounts that would help them. We got a total of 7 hours to prepare and many haven’t even been online yet [1]. In addition to nerfing the advance notice Zynga also decreased the amount of time from 10 days to 8 days. Zynga also screwed over many families because the Family Ice Event is still going on [1]. Choices will need to made and families will need to work with what they have. We may or may not post a walkthrough as most of our accounts are out of the small family we have used to document this event. During the 4+ years I’ve been writing this blog I’ve never called Zynga a bad name. Today I would like to take this opportunity to say what we are all thinking….Jerks!

  2. Don't be upset... you guys can't win it all, hehe... you're already "winning" the Ice event... this is how MW is... why should the huge families get a notice to place their fake accounts in the right families? I am happy Zynga just released this one with next to no notice... makes it more fair ;) But, I'm sure we'll see posts mentioning the words "Time" and "Extension" when we get closer to the end of this event, and the SUPER stamina familes struggle with the energy side... so, no need to worry :) I'm sure Zynga will help the stamina families after they have once again won the ice event... :)

    And "jerks" is a bit harsh... why are they jerks? Because they didn't allow time for the huge script families to get thier fake accounts into the right families? hehe... no notice = a much more fair event... wouldn't you say? :)

    1. I'm not upset about my family and the larger families probably aren't either. We will finish this in a day or two. It's many of the smaller families that may not get either event done now. There are also families still competing in the ice event. In the past we have done walkthroughs to give players notice about what consumables they need to farm and what to expect. This can't easily be done now. Most couldn't finish this in 10 days so the fact it was reduced to 8 is bad. They should have waited for the ice event to end but they are obviously desperate for a metrics boost and put that before making their players happy.

    2. But all events are not for all to complete... surely you must know this by now :) This is how the game is... it's getting harder and harder... and I think you can attest script usage to that fact... Family Events is about having an active versatile family... and if everyone who likes these events have that... I'm sure those who care will finish... but there will always be families left in the dust... in all events... this one isn't special in any way... just the way it is :)

    3. And I think we're past the point of where Zynga is trying to make their players happy,hehe... it's all about the cash...

  3. Coming from a small family with several inactive players, it would have been nice to have a heads-up to remove them temporarily from our family to make the goals more attainable. We need 4500 robs in Mexico and even running Robber BG with Rob Squads active, this takes a LOT of time. We are still working on the Ice Event as well so this mission takes a back seat to that.

    1. Why remove them temporarily? If they're inactive like you say and not doing anything anyway why didn't you remove them permanently? I see this as your fault for keeping all those inactive players in your family and now you're complaining that you didn't have a heads-up to remove them.

  4. I know that I will be doing these missions for me and me alone because my family is basically useless. The last Family Business I did more than 4 times everyone else combined. So at least I can get the rewards.

    2. I have the same problem--I have tried adjusting the zoom and it does not help

  6. Our family never gets the Family Business events finished but we try hard at it and compete against one another. It's fun to watch everyone cheer each other on. My best guess would be that the timer will be extended, as per usual, because of all the bugs that come along with anything Zynga does. No, I am not VIP nor a CC player but, if it weren't for those players, I'm afraid this game would have been long gone.

  7. What bugs me is that we had the first 2.5 parts of the energy complete and were working on the first part of the stamina and they reset everything! We are one of the smaller families and while we struggled the first two times to complete, we managed to work together well and finished 2 days early last time. No idea how we're going to finish this time if they don't give us our completions back!

  8. My family is only on the second step of the muscle path, but so far I don't see any loot.st, these let you max out on some of the Stranger's Swag loot, which was a nice incentive for those not concerned about the family progress.

  9. Muscle Path - Part 1 : Rob 1650 times in Mexico. O_ô WTF

    1. Rob 1650 times... that's only about 185 robbing boards... 15 players... 185 robbing boards... that's only about 13 robbing boards per player... that should be doable :)

  10. My Family Business has just re set back to the start..Fuming ..some of us have ween working hard on it today :(

  11. A fair warning isn't just to add members to families -
    As an underboss, I have personally booted more than 50 inactive members in preparation for previous family missions.
    Due to only a few hours notice, I didn't get the chance to boot the members who have become inactive since the last mission.
    For families with only 50 members +/- booting inactive members before these events can mean the difference between success and failure- especially for families with inactive underbosses, or worse an inactive GF or GM
    Every mission results in more players losing interest in MW in the aftermath

    1. this is exactly what this event is all about... having a strong, versatile family - not only during these missions... but all the time... it takes a lot of work making a strong active family... and the families that achieve this, will be prepared for these kind of events with little to no notice... and if you guys have that many inactives all the time... maybe you huys should boot and recruit active players... :)

  12. We appreciate all that you do. I see that you are here for the smaller groups / people. Someone doesn't recognize that the larger groups / people don't need your posts as much as we do. Thank you Loot Lady

  13. It seems we sit for days burning energy because there is nothing to do. Then all within a couple of days along comes a Secret District, a Family Icing Event and a Family Business. They all overlap and piss us off. You're right that the only reason for this is to bump up the metrics. Feels like desperate measures to me :P

  14. Pro tip: you don't have to finish everything. Let it go.... life will go on.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Completed the Secret District in 2 days and got all the bonuses, not worth doing the reset. My family is useless at the family missions or ice events. So I get them done for the rewards. Yeah, unfair but hey - who cares! I am having fun at it. One day I will just stop playing and just build stats on the property builds for the fun of it.

  16. Is anyone else having a problem seeing the muscle column for Family Business--I can only see a small portion of it

    1. I've seen others report this and it seems the workaround is in the zoom. You either need to zoom in or zoom out or make it 100%. I don't recall which it was.

    2. I have tried both and neither worked
