No More Double Missions!?

Well it looks like there were a limited amount of missions that you could do 2 at a time! I got through about 10 extra missions before they disappeared! So that was about 20 total missions counting both, it was nice while it lasted but I was under the impression it was a permanent thing! As I'm sure the majority of you were too.. Well just take advantage of it while it lasts and get those extra gifts and experience points!

This was the last set of bonus missions I got.. 
(Simple enough, just collect rewards and do some jobs!)
(Henchmen in 3 Cities!, It took me all day! They just weren't showing up, so don't freak out, it just takes a while!)
(Both Henchmen Took 35 Stamina to attack!)

Time to Crack The Safe!

This is just another attempt by Zynga to get people to Install the Toolbar, Like their fan page, Get more players to join, and allow them to auto publish from the game to your wall. Now if your an active player you probably have already done all of that. The only thing will be inviting 5 new people to join, they don't have to be new to mafia wars, just new to your mafia family! So start sending and get that loot!

Another Energy Refill Is Back!!

Thank you Zynga! They corrected this injustice and returned to us another Energy Refill! It may be more expensive than before but hey! I'll take it! Now you have a full energy refill for 400 Victory Coins and a Full Energy Refill for 5 RP and 100 Victory Coins! Both of them reset every 18Hrs.. I'm off to buy me a refill and play some Mafia Wars!

Are You In The 501 Club!?

Well the majority of us already are! And that doesn't mean you should ignore those +2 Members Gifts you receive.. At first they were just adding 2 more hired guns..But now it gives you a random Consumable, usually Animal Feed, but take what you get.. Don't just hit ignore!

(I Think I'm Set)

Send Those Hallow Warriors!

With all the new items and everything being thrown around why not start another special free gift!? Well now you can send Hallow Warriors, they're just like the Time Capsules and the Coffins. You can only open 5 a day and they come with some limited edition loot inside! One of which is a plane called the "Island Hopper" 74 Attack and 118 Defense.. Not bad at all! So go on and start collecting some loot!

Italy Is Tougher Than Ever!

The new chapters sure are no cake walk like the first chapters were, the first set of masterys are comparible to the Gold or Ruby level mastery of chapters 1-5. So your gonna have to stock up on SmartPhones, Hidden Charges, and everything in between! Oh and don't forget a truckload of energy to go along with it! It seems they don't want us finishing this one quickly, but I guess thats not a bad thing, but it looks like they went to a bit of an extreme to pull that off! At least there are missions and cheap Fighters Energy Refill's to help push you over to the next level.

Yes, that's 50 Hidden Charges you'll need, and oh.. whats that? You need 1 Cooked Book to get each of those.. Of course you do! Well just come up with a MINIMUM of 14,875 Energy and 800,000 Lira and you'll have all the requirements just to do this ONE JOB! On the easiest mastery level..

Jump In The Shark Tank!

Well they're laying it out plain and simple for us.. Bellow is the FAQ sheet on the fighting structure for mafia wars and why it gets so difficult when you reach certain levels. But now they've restructured the system and come out with some new tiers they believe will work out better.. Now players hitting 450 won't be slaughtered like baby lambs anymore.. They'll have to wait to 601 instead! The game will actually give you an option to Opt-in to the "Shark Tank" if you're below level 601! Whether that's a good idea or not is really on you, but if you've got cahones then go for it! Just remember that there is no backing out after you  have opted-in!

Shark Tank 411

The newest fighting achievement is called the Shark Tank Achievement. Prior to this achievement, all players above level 450 were accessible to players above level 450 on the Fight List, so it was possible for a level 456 player to see a level 1234 player on their Fight List. In fact, one of the biggest complaints was from players having opponents thousands of levels higher than them on the Fight List.

Now Mafia Wars has grown in total number of players, it's time that there are two additional tiers to balance out the fighting. Players above level 401 will now be split into two groups -

Level 301-400, 401-600, Level 600+

Players between levels 301 and 400 will only see other players within that level range on their Fight List.

Players between levels 401 and 600 will only see other players within that level range on their Fight List.

Players reaching level 601, officially graduate to The Shark Tank. In the Shark Tank, you will no longer be in the 'kiddie pools'. It will be possible to see your Fight List populated with players hundres or thousands of levels above yours. If you want to improve your chances of survival in the Shark Tank, you'll want to improve your items with rares, superior, and ultimate rarity items, and make sure you have plenty of skill devoted to Attack and Defense.

After you win your first 10 fights while in the Shark Tank, you will earn the Shark Tank Achievement and the skill point that comes along with it.


Q: Can I go into the Shark Tank if I'm below level 601?

A: Level 601 is an absolute requirement for admission into the Shark Tank. We're researching the possibility of allowing lower level players to 'opt-in' to the Shark Tank, but at the moment, that is not an option.

Q: Can I back out of the Shark Tank if I'm above level 600?

A: Once you're in the Shark Tank, there's no backing out. Our game is called Mafia Wars for a very good reason.

Q: I'm above level 600 and having a hard time finding live opponents.

A: This is something the Mafia Wars team is closely monitoring during the first few days of this update. We want to ensure that there is enough 'bait' for higher level players to attack, as well as preventing players that illegally use attack-bots from 'eating all the bait'.*

Q: What are good ways to improve my attack and defense skill stats?

A: Convert Reward Points into skill points is one way to do so. You should also remember to craft your daily items in the Weapons Depot, Chop Shop, Armory, and Private Zoo, as some of those items come with permanent attack and defense skill additions. Attack and Defense boosts also offer temporary help.

Q: My attack and defense skill displayed on my Fight Page sometimes goes up and/or down. What's happening?

A: This is because your attack and defense boosts are being used in current fights. Please refer to the following support article -Click here.

Q: I think another player is 'unfairly' attacking me or their stats seem really high for their level.

A: If another player's attack or defense stats seem high, please look for the presence of Loyalty Program Mastery Items on their account. This will usually indicate if a player has spent money to improve their stats beyond those of non-paying players. If you feel 'unfairly' attacked, please read this support article thoroughly before submitting a ticket.

*Update 1/22 - After initial data analysis, the updated Shark Tank is temporarily closed while the designers are discussing how to ensure there is enough 'live bait' for players attacking legitimately.

*Update 1/27 - After analysis of the player distribution, the Shark Tank will be reintroduced at a level 601 threshold. This should ensure there are more 'live' players on Shark Tank Fight Lists. The Shark Tank will reopen today.

Customer Support is not authorized to offer any compensation for players who are afraid of sharks or being in the Shark Tank with other high level players, or want permanent invincibiliy to shark attacks.

What, Are We Blind?

Now that they have added the ability to do two missions its like Zynga thinks were either stupid or blind.. Apparently we can't keep track of 2 things at once! They have these new obnoxious arrows that pop up every so often "reminding" you to start your mission or check it if you haven't finished it yet. We get it! But when it takes 2-3 days to do a large number of the missions that gets a wee bit annoying!

Where's Italy Chapters 6-8!? I'll Tell You!

Well as Zynga "Promised" the rollout did start on Monday, maybe you are one of the lucky ones, but probably not! Since they have had several server overload issues when launching new features all at once in the past it will be a several day rollout performed over this week. But they did release the 411 and Factoids yesterday and here they are:


There are 3 New Regions in Italy - Calabria, Citta del Vaticano, and The Eternal City.

Factoid: There are 4 tiers of Mastery (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Ruby). Each Region will have 2-3 paths (Energy, Fight, Social).

Factoid: You do not need master all paths to finish a tier. Beating a boss will automatically advance you to a fully unmastered map on the next tier. If you want the skill points from completing jobs in other paths, be sure to complete those jobs before mastering the tier.

Factoid: You can request help on a Social Job every 12 hours

Factoid: Some job consumables will be harder to obtain and may require doing multiple jobs (like New York City required Concealable Camera Loot as a consumable requirement for the job that produced Blackmail Photos) You will need Cooked Books (from Milano) to do the job (in Napoli) that produces Hidden Charges.

Factoid: Job consumables are designed to be obtainable from certain jobs in Regions 1-5. Yes, this means you will have to repeat jobs in Regions 1-5 to complete jobs in Regions 6-8

Factoid: Factoid, like Vegas, job consumables, property parts, collection items, and loot drops will occur and random and at varying rarities. Job consumables will drop from specific jobs. Specific loot drops will only drop in specific regions.

Factoid: All DJs currently in inventory will be removed prior to the release of Regions 6-8. These are unreleased items.

Factoid: Jobs in Regions 6-8 will produce less Lira than Jobs in Regions 1-5.

Factoid: Regions 6-8 will have more social jobs than Regions 1-5

Factoid: Jobs in Regions 6-8 will have higher energy requirements on average than Regions 1-5.

The Missions Are Getting Harder! Or At Least More Time Consuming!

The missions have been getting better and better but they just went from being somewhat easy and being able to complete 2 at a time to an extreme curve of not even being able to complete them in one sitting or even 3 days!! And its not due to lack of energy or stamina, It's because I have to wait to make Items, Come On!! You think you wouldn't end up in a situation where you get stuck like this, but then it happens!

(This one was a stamina burner.. Took me two refills!)
(Damn You! Build 3 Animals! Thats Just A Time Killer..)
(Got Stuck With 2 Time Wasters! Noooo!)

Sneak Peak At The NightClub!

Can't wait for the Italy Chapters to be released? Well here is a sneak peak at what your NightClub Will look like! Comon Zynga! Its 3pm EST Already! Release Those Chapters!! Don't forget to Start Asking For Those DJs!

You Can Ask For DJ's Now!

Get the Unframe-MW Bookmarklet from Spockholm Mafia Tools

You will be needing DJs for your nightclub which should be available later today when the New Italy chapters are released but if you wanna start collecting them early give it a try!

Go to My Village in Italy and then Unframe-MW. Once it has loaded back up and its showing your village copy the full script below into address bar and hit enter:


Wait for the pop-up to show and publish it to your page!

Note: If you have already asked for an Italy part you will not be able to do it until you can!

It Does Exist!?

It's so funny seeing some of the stuff they come up with in mafia wars, but who would guess that this would actually exist in real life!

Don't Waste Your Reward Points!

There are just some items you shouldn't ever waste your hard earned or sometimes paid for Reward Points on! I see it over and over again, they offer sales on the stupidest items and all the time with the hourly sale items are on boosts and items you can get from completing jobs, or opening free gifts! So pay attentions to what your buying and don't fall victim to a Reward Point Scam..

(here is the best example I can find)
(It Comes FREE in a mystery bag!)

(You can get 2 at a time as free gifts!)
(Get free from jobs)


I will no longer be directly publishing to this site! I have purchased a .com address and have a new site and a blog software to go with it! So check it out and update your bookmarks!

If you follow me through NetworkedBlogs on Facebook or Google's "Feedburner" you don't have to change anything! I have already updated the feeds to publish from the new site!
