Mafia Wars Strategy Guide Update

So, I took the new guide for a test run(click to see full size):

I made my account Friday evening and finished New York by Saturday night; it took about 30 hours to go from a brand new account to finishing off New York completely.. about 30 hours. As far as any help from an existing account, I sent myself collections but that was it.. so it will work for even new players. I collected all the untraceable cell phones, blackmail photos, and illegal transaction records on the same account I finished New York on in a day.

I went out Friday night with some friends and did some things Saturday day, so it probably took me about 10 hours of playtime. I was so sick of playing (haha) but I was determined to finish boss in a day.

I need to turn my notes into readable text, do some more editing and get the files into .pdfs, so I will be picking the 6 reviewers in about 48 hours. Last chance to get in on the action (post in the comments of the post BELOW this one, not in this post)!

In other news, when I started this new account I got access to rackets, so expect either later today or tomorrow with information on rackets. The system does actually look pretty good and is a lot more extensive than I had originally thought.

  4. What level were you when you finished up all the NY tiers?

    I'm at level 160 now and am still trying to collect the consumables to finish mastery 2 & 3 for Underboss, and then Boss. Been playing 9 days or so and way over 10 hours...lol. That guide you're putting together must be awesome.

  11. I wrote it out the exact steps I followed on a level by level basis for the first 25 levels then every 5 levels thereafter.

    It's going to be a part of my new strategy guide which will not be released for a few weeks. The finished guides will run over 100 pages in length and will be a .pdf available for purchase.

    A bit burnt out from all the writing now so the free copies I mentioned in the testing post won't be available for another week or 2 probably.

  12. @ MWG - Did you find it was hard to level when you got near level 295? Did you just do the "Settle" job in the Boss tier until the energy/exp ratio was low enough to do consumable jobs and keep doing that until you got all the consumables you needed?

  13. I'd like to see this guide. I'm at 235 and just finished NY, but it took about 2.5 months...

  14. how the hell did you finish in one day? You had to have bought Godfather Points with a credit card and kept buying energy refills.

  15. yeah it's very intruiging on how on earth where you able to finish NY jobs in 10 hours....

  16. If the Wheelman bonus continued to proc, I'd consider it to be improbable, but not impossible.

    Quick question: Are you going to make any quick edits to your guide now that the jobs with the two best EXP/En ratios (i.e., Heist and Poker Game) have been nerfed? Now even with MM/WM 11%, Heist is at 1.875, Poker Game at ~2.23 (if I have my maths in order).

  17. My top priorities for now are getting up the Moscow updates and finishing/updating the ebook project given that a lot of people have already grabbed the original one and are waiting for updates.

    If I have the time, I may go back to some of the old content and update the #s, but it's definitely low on the priority list. I'm also leery of posting some things now just because this site is now on the radar and I don't want things to get nerfed every time I post something.

  18. im lvl 310 in and it took me 6 days ( i played alot, prob around 7 hours today) This guide really works, I found that it was best to do the first two tiers of cuba first so you can buy the bribery ring for the politicians. I also would do the XP spill over in Russia so the Rubies we not as hard to come by. Once you do NY and Cuba you can just sit and do the jobs in cuba that give you a 2 xp eng ratio ( I got over 250 TNT now)

    Great guide!!!

    Oh and when making a new facebook account make a female and use a cute girl, you will get alot of adds and FREEEEEEEEEEE stuff too hahahah

  19. I agree with the making a fake facebook a female. i made a fake account that i only used for helping out on my moskow jobs. i dont even play it but i have like 25 friends and get about 50 gifts a day
