Chapter 1 of Mafia Wars Challenge Mission: London is now online and ready to play. It operates in quite the same way Mafia War Paris did.
There are still 3 Chapters that will be released one week at a time. Each chapter has jobs that require a consumable item (British Passports in the case of London).
However, there are some differences. First off, there are four jobs this time around:
As a result, there is a higher Passport cost associated with Mafia Wars London as compared to Paris.
With that said, players can get extra maps by adding people to their Mafias:
For Chapter 1, you can add 2 people to your Mafia to pick up an extra 30 British Passports for each person. You will be able to get 80 British Passports for Chapter 2 and 100 for Chapter 3.
The heat meter is still here, but it has changed slightly:
If you missed out on Mafia Wars: Paris, the heat meter is a bar that increases every time you do a job. Once it reaches a critical point, the energy cost and British Passport cost of jobs increases.
The Heat Meter is a bit more lenient now. You can do 6 jobs before it moves from Green to Yellow (first increase in British Passport cost) and 5 more before it moves from Yellow to Red (second increase in cost).
You can still do jobs when it is completely red and it will not go up in cost from the third level.
Mafia Wars Challenge Mission London jobs:
Here is the map cost of each job and the mastery earned each time you do the job:
Bribe a Longshoreman: 1/2/3 passport cost (1 for green, 2 for yellow, 3 for red); 9% mastery
Replace Armored Truck Drivers: 2/3/4 passport cost; 8% mastery
Re-Route the Hijacked Trucks: 2/3/4 passport cost; 5% mastery
Deliver Banknotes to A Local Syndicate: 3/4/5 passport cost; 4% mastery
When compared to Mafia Wars Paris, London requires more British Passports from the start, even with the bonus +60 passports from adding Mafia Members.
We know it will only go up in cost from here, so don't use all your passports on the first week. Spend cautiously in the first week and slowly rank up to the appropriate level.
