Must Play Weekend and Other Game Changes

Upon logging in today, I received this message:


So, it looks like we will be getting some sort of 4th of July event. Not too sure what it's about, we will have to see on Friday!

At any rate, as some of you have mentioned, job XP in Bangkok was buffed. Jobs now pay out a good bit of more XP:energy point - at level 4 in Chapter 7, most jobs pay over 2.0 XP per energy point. As pointed out by poster MariahJ:

Battle Your Way Through The Temple, 407 EXP at 192 energy cost, standing at 2.120 it is better than Settle a Beef Permanently.

Another great job is Silence A Shadow Kingdom Patrol, which pays 2.079 XP:Energy and drops the Chain Viper (46 attack animal).

These changes will definitely make completing the last level of Bangkok a lot easier, especially for energy accounts, and there will be some nice $B to get too this way.

Additionally, there are now some new New York items available on the purchase page: Serrated Knife, Sniper Rifle, Automatic Rifle, Tactical Rifle, Sports Car, Luxury Car, Armored Limo, Combat Truck.

All of these items are purchasable with normal NY dollars and are pretty cheap. Not quite sure what we will be using these for yet. I picked up 500 of each type just in case they come in handy.

  1. The energy buff in Bangkok is great. I finished the city a couple of days ago and have close to B$800 million sitting in the bank.

    Any strategic tips on what items to spend it on?

  2. off topic: i don't know exactly what happened but while depositing money in bangkok my cash suddenly became a negative. tried refreshing but the negative amount is still there. i tried fighting to see if i can wish some cash and any amount i win simply subtracts from the deficit (ex. from -B200,000 i brought it down to -B190000 after winning B10000).

    any ideas? this is seriously driving me nuts..

  3. Anyone having the problem of attack and defence points dropping randomly?

    I logged in a few days back and it's at 20K for def, then today it became 18K. I didn't add/delete any mafia or sell any equipments.

    That leaves me to one suspicion. Will the loot drop from fighting taken from the players now direct from their inventory?

  4. I just came across a pop-up in MW that says "Challenge Mission: South Africa"!!!!

    Apparently I need to start collecting new mafia members and counterfeit world cup tickets.....no joke!

  5. south africa challenge looks like a continuation of the global cup challenge. Collect counterfeit tickets to do jobs. A new level opens every week. Need to recruit new members to get the 1 time bonus of extra tickets.

  7. NY Boss jobs have been nerfed a bit on exp payout and a little bit increased on energy cost...

  8. It looks like they messed with the Top Mafia bonuses--my Wheelman and Mastermind are now down to 10%. I wonder if that's going to be permanent.

  9. I don't think they adjusted the XP:energy in NY--they just nerfed some of the Top Mafia bonuses. All of my ratios are now down. Grrr!

  10. Battle Your Way Through The Temple: 403 exp/194 energy

    Settle a Beef... Permanently: 73exp/36energy

    this is sucks..

  11. Yeah I was just checking my Top Mafia Bonuses as well. Looks like the 2 important ones were nerfed to 10% and 10%. This really sucks for an energy account, bah.

  12. At least one Cuba job has gotten a small nerf. Supply The FRG With Some Extra Muscle was 40 energy for 82XP. Now is 41/81.

  13. Anyone else notice that the diamond drop rate has also improved recently? I thought at first its just because my win percentages were getting better, but the animals went live a couple weeks ago and the better diamond drop just started this week.

    I hadn't gotten a single diamond since robbing was introduced and now I have like 5 or 6.

  14. Settle the beef is lowered for me as are the wheelman/mastermind, but my bangkok job is 194/403 (2.07). Definitely not getting 2.120, what gives?
