Mafia Wars leveling and income guide:

Mafia Wars requires strategy and an understanding of the game to be the best. Some of the most common questions many Mafia Wars players have and debate is about leveling. How fast should level in Mafia Wars, how much income should you have for your level, should you level up to get the next income or defense Properties. We will provide answers based on our point of view to these questions, but understand, there is not really a right or wrong answer.

Camping, farming, and cows in Mafia Wars

  • Camping in Mafia Wars means sitting and avoiding anything that will give you experience. You do this because you come to a realization that your Mafia Wars income cannot support the Weapons you need and your leftover income is not enough to adequately increase your income and defense from Properties. If you need to camp, the last thing you want to do is level. While missions may give you income, the best way to make money is to have income buildings making money for you, 24x7. While it may be a little boring, it is something every player has had to do from time to time in all Storm8 games. Our suggestion is to start playing one of the other Storm8 games. It will keep you a little pre-occupied while your current account is camping and building income.
  • Cows are Mafia Wars players with good hourly income and weak defenses. This makes you a target for people to attack you regularly for your income, which is referred to as 'farming'. While cows can bank their income. Most players do not login enough to keep all their money from being exposed to farmers. Farmers are players who are taking advantage of the cows by attacking them for their money.

    One rule you need to know and follow from day 1 is to never post on someone elses wall in the game, unless you know them very well. This is because any posts on another players wall is a link back to you and that link can be used forever to attack you.
  • Mafia Wars farmers are players who attack other players multiple times for income. Farmers use different strategies with varying levels of intensity. The casual farmer attacks other players several times a day and will try to remember names, but won't have hard links to players. If the cow attack backs, the farmer will use that link, but once it gets pushed off their attack message log, they will focus on other players. When they find someone giving good money, they will attack to their limit or the cows limit and then move on. Hard core farmers try to create hard links to cows, by hit listing them, or having links through their own mob members. Hard core farmers will repeatedly attack a cow several times a day, every day.

Why is it important to control how quickly and when you level in Mafia Wars?

  • If you level too fast your Mafia Wars income will not be able to support the increased costs and upkeep expenses that's required for the best Mafia Wars Weapons to attack others and defend yourself. Additionally, Properties continue to get more and more expensive and without good re-occuring hourly income, you will fall further behind other Mafia Wars players at your level. One of the best ways to make Money is to have a lot of income Properties, with purchases done efficiently using an ROI Mafia Wars calculator like we provide. As we said even buying based on ROI, Properties still continue to get more expensive, so you need to have an excess of hourly income to support leveling to new levels.

How do you know if you should level to get the next income or defense Mafia Wars Properties?

  • First and foremost, you need to make sure that you can defend against the best Mafia Wars attack Weapons for the new level. To do this, on the Mafia Wars calculator, change your level to the next income or defense Properties you are targetting. Next scroll to the list of best Weapons and compare the gap between the best attack and best defense units. Next look at the per unit defense you are getting from your defense Properties. If you are not covering that gap, we would recommend waiting until you can. In addition, make sure that you can afford the purchase and upkeep costs for the best defense Weapons for the new level.
  • Once you've determined that you can adequately defend yourself at the new Mafia Wars level, the next step is to see if it is worth it financially. One rule of thunb we use is to change our level to the new level and compare the missed income or defense against our total income or defense. If the missed income or defense is 20% or greater then you should definitely level, otherwise you will be buying Properties at a much lower ROI, which will slow down your income and defense growth substantially, especially with the missed value greater than 20%.

Mafia Wars Mob guide:

Mafia Wars Mob members and knowing how to use them effectively is a critical piece behind a winning strategy in Mafia Wars. You'll need to know what they do for you, how many to own, and where to find them. We try to answer those questions below.

What do you need to know before adding Mafia Wars Mob members?

  • The level of players in your Mob or what Weapons they own doesn't matter. They are just a number to you. You are responsible for equipping them for fights.
  • Each Mob member can and will use one of each type of Weapons (Weapons, Defense, and Vehicles) in a fight
  • You can only use 5 times your level in Mob members. You can have more in your Mob, but in a fight you will only use 5 per your level, so if you are level 12, you can only use a maximum of 60 Mob members.

What are the advantages of having Mafia Wars Mob members and how do you use them?

  • More Mafia Wars players in your Mob gives you a larger Mob size, which when properly equipped by you means your attacks and defense are stronger so you win more
  • When you are in a fight, whether attacking or defending, the game will automatically calculate your attack and defense values factoring in your usable Mob members and their Weapons. Remember, the Weapons they use is what you own, not what the Mob member owns.

How many Mafia Wars Mob members should you have?

  • Mafia Wars players are grouped into brackets which are groups with about the same number of Mob members as each other. The bracket cutoffs for low levels are 4, 9, 14, 19, etc. Here are some examples and the advantages of staying at the top of your brackets:
    • A player has a Mob size of 4 members. When attacking they can only see players with 1-4 Mob members and only players with 1-4 Mob members can see them. This gives them an advantage over anyone with 3 or less Mob members
    • A player has a Mob size of 6 members. When attacking they can only see players with 5-9 Mob members and players with 5-9 Mob members can see them. This puts them at a disadvantage when dealing with players with Mob sizes of 7, 8, or 9 members.
  • For lower Mafia Wars levels, under level 20, stick to 4 or 9 Mob members. This keeps your purchase costs and upkeep costs lower. The higher level you are, the more Mob members you should have, as long as you can properly equip them. This is because the brackets start to open up more, so someone as a level 40 and Mob size of 9 may be seen and attacked by someone with 10-15 or more Mob members.

Where do you find Mafia Wars codes of Mob members or how can players find your Mafia Wars game code?

  • There are many places on the web to find Mafia Wars codes. You may choose to add your Mafia Wars code and let others add you, or you can find lists of Mafia Wars codes and start entering those game codes into your game. Our Mafia Wars Mob game code page is a good place to start, with functionality most sites don't have.
  • Avoid sites and people that claim they have a cheat code. There are no cheat codes for Storm8 games. What they are trying to do is get you to add their game code. While not a terrible thing to do, adding someone that feels they have to lie and be deceitful is not someone I would want to add to my Mob.
