Metrics Monk is the site that tracks metrics of Facebook applications and is what we have been using for quite some time . Lately it goes down for long periods of time so it hasn't been easy to catch how Mafia Wars is doing. The week long strike by the fighters was from Sept 14 - Sept 21 and it was an unfortunate time to have a strike because the metrics were no where to be found . Today they are finally back up and we can now see the impact. The user numbers went down by a couple thousand but today they are down by about 4,000. We can probably all agree that these numbers probably aren't very accurate but they are useful for comparisons and changes (good or bad) in the game often create spikes. The state of the game right now, boring events going and lack of interest, are probably the cause of the current decline. Many of the fighters who were on strike stayed on strike and today we have fewer players than we did a month ago. Zynga needs to do something to make the game a little more enjoyable to even hope the numbers go up. These are the lowest they have been and without change most would predict further declines as time goes by.
