New Combat Interface for Mafia Wars; Strategy and Leveling Guide

So, the fighting function in Mafia Wars recently got a face lift. As far as I can tell, the mechanics do not seem to have changed much, but now you can see both your and your opponents attack and defense from weapons, which is nice.

In addition to attack and defense totals, there is some flavor text at the top right. It does not actually mean anything as far as I know. Yeah, at level 911, I only see people levels 150-200 on the fight list for whatever reason. Oh well!

I'm still alive, and this will continue to be updated as Mafia Wars puts out updates. Right now there just is not much to cover since most of the developer's focus seems to be on fixing bugs!

  1. I can't see that change you are showing here, but I see a summary of my attack and defense point when clicking 'fight' (after fighting someone, it disappears)

  5. I liked the old system a bit better. My mafia isn't that big, so if someone knows your attack+ def stats you might get attacked time and again.
    But maybe when my crew is bigger, then I might like it.
    (o.t.) I have an invitation to join another mafia family. If I accept it, will I leave my family to join my new family or will I stay in my old family and have the members of my new family added? I don't want to leave my family, because most of the people in there are real-life friends.

  8. Hi Mafia Wars Guide,

    I had a big favor to ask of you. I know you have a great guide on how to level up, how to get 501 of all items, how to master all levels in NY and Cuba but i was wondering if you could help us out after the POST-EVERYTHING COMPLETE stage i.e. I want to be able to keep levelling up at a significant pace (rather than one or two levels per day) while being able to accumulate 501 of all items and be able to defeat people.

    I know its a big request, but what i am basically looking for is that how should we level up after like level 250 or so when we have mastered all tiers so that we can collect 501 of all atk and def items, and still make a suitable strong character. This could be an addendum to your excellent leveling guide!
