Mafia Wars Bangkok Beta Coming Soon!

From the Mafia Wars application home screen:

"Bangkok Beta Coming Soon:
We are happy to announce Bangkok will be going into beta very shortly. We will be asking some of our players to provide important feedback and make improvements for the final release. Please stay tuned.
The question is - who gets to test it? I wonder if it will be like Cuba where about 10% of the game will get access to beta or if it will just be a handful of community members.

Other servers quirks & outages the past few days:

Certain New York jobs were dropping high end Moscow loot pieces over the past day. This has since been fixed according to the Mafia Wars patch notes. Thanks to Kris for the picture:

Between all the Moscow loot that is flooding into the game between this bug, loot drops being added to fights, and Bangkok beta being very imminent, the value of Moscow high quality loot is likely to plummet. Get your lotto collection now before you're left holding these items that are rapidly losing their value.


Differences in super stuffed crate prices:

For some reason some accounts are having to pay an extra 20% godfather points for the same super stuffed crates. Thanks to Randy for the pic:


As you can see, he has to pay 25 godfather points for a single Super Stuffed Crate or 69 points for 3, while my current cost is only 20 and 55, respectively. The only thing I know is that his account is relatively new where my account is many months old.


Servers have also been going in and out over the past few days, but that is to be expected as the game is being prepared for Mafia Wars Bangkok beta and the addition of Moscow loot to fights. I will have more info on Bangkok soon!

  1. I forgot to thank you for your advice. Just a couple posts back, you said it's a good idea to get lotto collection through trading before the bangkok comes out. I did just that. I traded in a few Moscow HELs for the lotto collection. This morning, I logged on and found out MHEL lost so much value overnight that I couldn't stop thinking about what a good advice you gave to us! Thank you again!

  13. I had the same thing happen with the wishlist. Tell him to remove everything, then add again. It worked for me.

  14. Not sure how long ago they made this change or if it's just a glitch, but you can now buy items without withdrawing the money from the bank. Before, you would get a popup if you didn't have enough money on hand. Now you can buy items and it will just deduct whatever you don't have on hand from the bank (if you have it there). I'm not sure if it works on property, but I now it works on inventory items in Cuba and Moscow.

  15. Don't know if it's true, only a rumour.
    Bangkok will be released this saturday or the 29 january.

    ( Could be beta-testers saturday and 29 for everyone, just a guess)

    Hope it's this saturday. ;-)

  16. Hm, well that's convenient Generic Guy. It's always been that way for healing but I don't remember it being that way for Moscow stuff. I haven't used the bank in forever..

    @FFfreak: I hope it's this saturday instead of a weekday. I'd prefer to get some sleep this week!

  17. the thing with the money happened to me twice.

    i had not enough money to buy the items for a job in moscow but i clicked on the buy item link anyway, and i got the items. my money went to 0. although i wasn't aware if the money in my bank was automatically deducted.

  18. Buying stuff in Moscow has been withdrawing from the bank for me for a while now. Useful for when you're still banking money to prevent loss from fighting.

  19. i find it very annoying that you have to hit publish everytime you find a secret stash. It should just automatically post after you select which loot you want. And then sometimes it doesn't even work after I hit publish. It would just go to a blank page and when I hit refresh, I would just end up back on the job page. Lost so many loot opportunities like that :(

  20. I have an off-topic question. I created a new account and nowhere it lets me choose my character type. It makes me a Maniac without asking. What am I missing? Anybody else noticed that??

  24. I am playing since the last 10 months now but still I get the increased rates for the stuffed crates. I guess the difference is not because of old or new, but something else.
