Mafia Wars Bangkok Beta Now Live!

Some lucky players are now able to go to Mafia Wars Bangkok as part of the beta test!

Free boat ride for 3! Now who should I take..?


Here is a look at the home screen:


Right now, Mafia Wars Bangkok beta has two episodes released (just like with Moscow) and it looks like there is plans for 6 total episodes. The first two episodes are Brawler and Criminal. I'm glad they stayed away from the fancy words like "Pakhan" this time - it was hard to remember them all to type up!

There are a few key differences - the major ones being the introduction of a faction bar and more separation in jobs. In Mafia Wars Bangkok, you get faction points for helping out one side over the other. If you accumulate enough faction points, you will be able to buy unique rewards only available to that faction. I will put more detail into that in a later post.

There are also quite a few new businesses. Check them out:

The unique change to businesses this time is that the Gun Running Operation requires Yakuza faction to unlock and produces Black Market Ammo (which I believe to be a +attack boost). The Yaa Baa Parlor requires Triad faction to unlock and produces Hyper Alert Sentry (which I believe is a +robbing defense boost, and robbing is being added back into the game some time soon).

More info to come!

  5. Also got the passport for beta. Observations so far:

    - the fighting in Bangkok is not yet operational so for now my baht is safe with having to bank it (losing 10%)

    - I lost my ability to get the mini energy boost. I installed and uninstalled the MW toolbar and was still able to get the mini boost with the help of a poster on this board. Anyone experience the same problem?

    MWG did you get an invite/passport? Any observation(s) from other players?

  6. Update re: mini-boost. Nevermind, apparently the ability to get a mini-boost without having the tool bar installed was a bug that has been corrected.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have the toolbar installed and I can't get the mini-boost.
    I tried uninstall and reinstall, and still no luck.
    I play from multiple computers and only have toolbar installed on one of them, maybe it is related to that?

    ReplyDelete
  10. In same boat. Installed toolbar. Not able to get mini-energy boost. Maybe I shouldn't have been so quick to be part of Bangkok-beta.

  15. Same boat lost my mini energy buff. Sucks

    ReplyDelete
  16. My farm account got a passport and 3 others, sent one to my main.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I can't collect my mini energy buff from my toolbar. I am also NOT selected for Bangkok beta. So I don't think the two are related. I think activating Bangkok affected everyone's toolbars, or at least a good portion of the players on certain servers.

  18. The Question is Triad or Yakuza?

    ReplyDelete
  19. http://apps.facebook.com/inthemafia/profile.php?id=%7B%22user%22%3A%22MTAwMDAwMDQ4OTk1Nzg1%22%7D please send me a passport if you have one. i will give great rewards to the one who does!

  20. need passport will trade for gifts...thanks...level 533

  21. 25% energy boost from toolbar seems to be fixed.
    If you hover over the hyper alert sentry in the faction store a pop up says it is a +32 defense boost.

    ReplyDelete
  22. vaulted the chess pieces, +5 energy points

    Vaulted masks- Plus 5 defense skill

    seems it takes a lot of money another attempt to make us buy GF points, which I did, LOL
    Too little energy/exp ratio, too little $$ earned

  23. i would love a passport if anyone has extras they are willing to share :) FB ID 100000088752053

  24. What I don't understand is that if even if you have collected everything, you may not be able to get in. It seems that there is also a level requirement, which might be Lvl 200, as I am lvl 196.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm in Bangkok but I can't find the passports to send to my friends. Where are the passports once you get in Bangkok?

    ReplyDelete
  26. i can get a passport to bangkok for anyone my friend has one but is lookin for 50 zolo sports cars for one! ad my my face book is on the comment thing

    ReplyDelete
  27. Re: the question posted as to not being able to send a passport and receiving an error message: the person you are sending to has to have settings set so that friends can post on their wall. Have who you are trying to send this to check this. It should work.

    A side note to those looking for their 3 passports to send once they receive one- not everyone gets 3 passports. In fact many do not, so if you cannot find them, most likely you did not get them to send. I have corresponded with Zynga on this.

  28. i keep doing the NYC job but cannot get the coin to complete the requirements to enter bangkok..

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lucky you cannot get the coin only! I cannot get ANYTHING required for bangkok! I even have the passport but I still can't find anything! :D I've lost about 1000 energy on this!

    ReplyDelete
  30. If anyone wants passports for Bangkok or knows friends who want them I got 25 to spare.

  31. how to get thai note?/

    ReplyDelete
  32. HOw do I get the first 3 items, except pasport to get into Bangkok??? Because till now, I have only the passport and not the rest......Pls help!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I already got those 3 items recently and now proceed to Bangkok missions. X )
    The catch is; just click on the NYC job and keep clicking 3-4 times the "Do This Job Again" button. Then, click back the "Do Job" for the same job button again, several times. Keep doing it, and you'll get the 3 items eventually. Same goes for the passport....good luck!!
    (Sorry for bad English...)
