Updates from the third PAC v2.0 Meeting
A special meeting of PAC v2.0 was called to discuss scripting a few days ago. I was going to wait until something was posted by Zynga, but why wait? (plus i promised to keep you informed).
Let's go back to the FIRST PAC v2.0 meeting. They (Zynga) brought up the something that reminded me of a beta of something they had released before called, "the Witness Protection Program". This was a failed program and was only rolled out to a small number of users of which some still have. Over a year ago Zynga did beta testing on this. If you signed up for it, you got 24 hours of no one hitting you but this was a failure, caz then you couldnt burn stamina at all. They (Zynga) did bring this up at the first PAC v2.0 meeting with a question of "Would the players be interested in being able to block up to 5 other players and prevent them from hitting? Game play would continue as normal". Personally i'd like to thank the PAC for actually asking the community on if they would of liked this feature... oh wait they didnt...
Back to the latest special meeting call, it didnt go so well, because after about an hour other people started joining the call! But, before it ended there was a tiny hint about the bully throttle playing a more important role in the game. My sources tell me that Zynga is considering taking the bully throttle a step further. Once the throttle is activated, you won't be able to hit the player again at all. No word on how long before you can kill them again.
Maybe the next meeting will go better and there won't be an "overlap" and they (the PAC) might be able to decide on something, rather than wasting Zynga's time and nothing been done or decided for the playerbase?
