Mafia Wars Bangkok Now Live!

Bangkok is now open for everyone! Simply click on the Bangkok tab and click "get your passport", select the clerk as an option, and off you go. Well, almost. There is a chance you can get denied by the clerk and then you will have to wait anywhere from a couple minutes to nearly a day before you can try again.

If you get denied, you can spend 30 godfather points to "Bribe an Official" to get there early (on the same get passport screen). If you do spend the 30 points, you will get access and 3 passports for your friends.

You may also now receive passports from doing jobs in Bangkok. You can send them to your friends that got denied by the clerk.


Thanks Andrew for the pic!


Now that Bangkok is live, you can gift job and fighting drop items!

(thanks Hartmut, Ron, and Hubert for the contributions!)



Edit:

Originally I had not realized how many new items have been added to the game. At this point, I am thinking this is ALL of the episode 3, 4, 5, and 6 loot. There are just too many new pieces for it to be otherwise.

This is really disappointing considering how weak these items are compared to Moscow loot. The only upgrade in this bunch is Lloyds Spectre, which is only a 1 defense upgrade over the Konstantine Cargo Carrier.

    ReplyDelete

  4. First I thought loot drops from fightings were depending from your balance (Triad or Yakuza) - my balance right now is 1500/1499 for Triad but now I changed my meanings about that because I got some things with better attack.
    I got following things so far:

    Weapons:
    Cleaver 25/44
    TAR-21 (Rename) 23/38
    Forest Scorpion 25/37
    Armor
    Monk's Robe 29/41
    Vehicles:
    Lloyds Spectre 18/45
    Fugama Kame SUV 33/21
    Kage Jet 27/42
    Seua Daao Sub 35/22

    If you habe all MHEL right now the only one which will increase your defense is the Llloyds Spectre with +1 above the KCC

  9. The hours number to get the passport from clerk is vary. My first account need 16 hours, whereas my 2nd account need 18 hours. Another friend of me only need 12 hours.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Each of the first 2 eps has 4 loot drops (2 decision points * 2 choices) So with that number of new loot pieces, either there are more loot points in eps 3 & 4 or we're seeing ep 5 & 6 loot too. Looks like I'll fight more now too!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Robbing will be back soon appearantly check the news update for yesterday. They mentioned something about making changes to properties to facilitate the new system.

  13. Who needs a pass to bangkok? I got a spare one.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was lucky and got approved by the clerk first time go! Maybe it's b/c I already HAD gifted passport? Damn Zynga. >:(

    there!

  15. only have to wait 3 hours for my passport, guess I'm lucky :/

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow, I'm terribly unlucky. I got denied by the clerk and was told I have to wait 20 hours. I am still waiting, in fact.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am the last anon. On another one of my accounts (which I rarely play), I got denied by the clerk, but was only told to wait 12 minutes (yes, minutes).

    ReplyDelete
  18. based on the timing of the comments here, i am thinking the time you have to wait for a reset is based on an in game clock.

    Notice that the first comment writers listed long wait times whereas as the comments went on, the required time decreased.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thanks for the contributions everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  20. i'm very unlucy, 23 hours!!??? damn!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. WOW! After reading this, I didn't know how lucky I was to receive my passport immediately!

    ReplyDelete
  22. New development: "You can only help 25 friends per day per city. Try again tomorrow!" This was not in place before and kind of disappointing--takes out another social aspect of the gaming, interacting with friends rather than Godfather. :(

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hey do we get this above mentioned loot drops in all cities bcoz my bangkok fight has yet not started...its showing coming soon.
    and i tried fighting in Moscow but did not get any above loots.. please clarify...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Question. Can you gift the items you buy in the factions store? like the yakuza assasin

    ReplyDelete
  25. The only helping 25 friends per day per city has been in quite awhile now for me, since December or even November.

    And yes Faisal you get bangkok loot regardless of where you are fighting like all loot drops have been since I have played.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The clerk denied my request for the 2nd time :(
    Have to wait another 14 hours...

    ReplyDelete
  27. For all of you who didn't get a passport:

    Message me on facebook and I'll send you one - got 4 left.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Loot from episodes 3,4,5 and 6 of bangkok aren't dropping anymore and can't be gifted. Do you guys have that problem also??

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yeah, only 25 friends per city per day (actually, per 24-hour-period) has been in place for at least a couple months.

    Boss fight helps count towards that, and for now, I use all 25 of my bangkok helps towards boss fights, because they are guaranteed to work (no "too late" message) and they always drop exactly B$1000. The other jobs helps drop less. So for now that extra B$25000 a day is helping immensely for upgrading businesses.

  30. hey this coment is for high level players and the owner of this blog :for u guys who have bought something from the faction store(yakuza/triads)can thses items be sent ps abt those loot items dropping from fights and people thinking it might be all loot items until ep 6 then although it might be dissapointing i think the faction store is the upgrades we need but insted of bieng looted from jobs they should be bought so (owner of this site)as u said b4 that the reward items are only a tiny fragment of the 70000+ scores obtainable with the fll loot well these are the loot item and if u manage to gather abt 501 of each (with time of course) then ya it is possible so i guess the major loot items we thought would be in ep 6 turned out to be right in front of us if this is the case then i dont mind coz the stuf in the faction store are seriously muchhhh better than moscow items starting with the 46 attck vehicle which tops the zoloto by 3 attack points and the Cheng-Wei X94 Machine Gun which tops the zmeya carbon by 1 and shaolin bodygaurd which beats the executive overcoat by 6 and so on so i guess nothing to be disapointed abt except the fact that it will be harded to collect alot of them considering there price [[[MAFIA WARS FREAK]]]

  31. Mafia Wars Freak - I am not exactly sure what you are trying to say. Store bought items can't be sent as gifts and won't drop from fights, if that is what you are asking.

    ReplyDelete
  32. FFfreak,
    I just noticed my kage jet and lloyds aren't giftable anymore as well. I already had my lloyds on my wishlist though and that is still there (useless if people can't gift). My royal thai beret is still giftable though that is from ep 1 or 2. I hope this is just a bug and the loot will continue to drop from fights and be fixed as giftable soon.

  34. @ second anonymous above: guess Zynga just locked all the loots of episode 3,4,5 and 6. Really stupid of him/her I guess.
    No fun in waiting for the next episodes cause we know all the items now and they suck. Hope robbing is coming back soon, really liked doing that.

    And only advantage of episode 6 of bangkok is going to be that we can have for like 150 energy => 15000 Baht or more so we can get easily the items in the store, in episode 2 now it is almost 3000 Baht. ;-)


    Oh, and for those 2000000 Baht you could win from the boss fight, zynga fixed it ...

    ReplyDelete
  35. i heard you get 200000 for everone that help get a bonus from a boss fight but someone told me its only at level 3 please clarify

    ReplyDelete
  36. I got 3 extra passports. Add me and ill share them

    ReplyDelete
  37. Maybe a misunderstanding but with zynga fixed it, I meant you don't get 2000000 Baht anymore. I was lucky to have them and that was on level 3 for me, heard of other people it was on level 1 and 2.

    Always problems with mafia wars.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think this loot will be all that we see for episodes 3 - 6. It doesn't surprise me that it wasn't more as they don't want to make Moscow completely irrelevant.
    I SO WISH they would give us mastery items like they did in NY - things to make our character stronger - not just new weapons.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lloyd's Spectre and Type-103 Machine Gun can no longer be sent as gifts. :(

    ReplyDelete
  40. Just got another new loot item from fighting, BRM-38 weapon 23att/38def

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ok I have to ask, fighting in Moscow or Bangkok? I can't still fight in bangkok... want to be sure that isn't a glitch...lol

    ReplyDelete
  42. Do we have to choose one side only? Or can we help one side and another and be friend of both side?(Triad and Yakuza)

    ReplyDelete
  43. At least Eps 3, 4 are pretty matched up with ep 6 of moscow. That means eps 5,6 of bangkok will be all that much better :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I got a "lemongrass" from a job, but now I can't see it in my inventory. Coming collection?

    ReplyDelete
  45. who is the clerk? and where can i find him?
