Shaky Performance On Shakedown Servers
After investigation of reports that the servers of Zyngas game Mafia Wars: Shakedown is dropping rapidly, DPS Computing investigated. We have found that indeed the performance over the past week of these servers has been quite woeful (for at least some of us anyway!). The results of this unexpected performance drop have included the game running more slowly, taking more time to action requests and in some cases, failing to load the game at all at certain times. The problems seem to be affecting the games servers more during the late afternoon and evening.
Possible reasons for this sudden drop in performance could be due to the games popularity – and as more and more users continue to install the iPad 2 game the possibilities of performance dropping further are very real.
Of course, over subscription of members on the server is only one possible reason for the problems encountered by DPS Computing and the people who have reported the problem to us.
Thus far, there has been no indication from Zynga about the recent performance of the Shakedown servers. We will of course update you if this changes.
In the meantime, if you are a current player of the iPad 2 game, Mafia Wars: Shakedown, please comment below and indicate how server performance has been for you over the past few days.
