After spending an hour sorting through the massive junk pile that is my FaceBook page I came to two conclusions.
- I’m bored with Mob Wars. It was one of the funnest games I’ve played in a long time at first, but now there’s not much more I can do.
- There has got to be a better way to handle games and invites.
For those of you who haven’t played Mob Wars yet I would say go ahead, it’s a whole lot of fun. The only down side to it is that in order to grow your mob you have to get your friends to join your mob, but what if you only have 10 friends? Well then you will get killed by someone named Dr. Syphillis or something equally stupid and the game will suck (yes I lifted the spelling directly from someones name on the game). So what are you to do when everyone around you is kicking your ass? Join a group.
I fell into this temptation to max my mob out at the current 500 members and now I have 614 “friends”, and I only really know about 20 of them. My news feed is so clogged full of crap I haven’t seen anything from anyone I really know in months and while making filters is nice and all, it’s just not as engaging as just seeing my friends when I open up site. Which brings me to my point, which is continued on the next paragraph.
Can’t FaceBook in their infinite wisdom create a better way for people to add members to games (like mob wars) than having them as your friend? What about something where forums and groups are created around the games (like there are for Mob Wars) and you can add players through means like that. Why do I have to pretend to be someone’s friend just to max out my mob or to quickly gain super powers? Why can’t we just have an association based on mutual game play?
Right now I am spending the $96 billion I have accrued on putting hits out on the same jerk who keeps attacking me day in and day out, and then I am disbanding my mob and all the “friends” I have acquired over the last year or so. Until then I will just have to filter through the noise.
