Why the mafia wars craze?

You might ask this question when you see me posting on this blog after 7 months. Mafia wars has been around since a little longer than 2 years. Ever since it came it created a buzz. It is not because it has some really cool animations or something.

It's just that the game play is extremely addictive that we all want to play it again and again. Especially when you're in the lower levels it is quite addictive to just keep on doing the jobs again and again in the struggle of improving your level.

Moreover, you also want to improve your experience. Reason being, over time I've noticed that you would usually have people attack you and you'll eventually end up losing in case you don't do the jobs everyday.

However, all of this is mostly limited to lower levels when people are low on cash and on experience. Tomorrow, I'll write again to tell why the mafia wars craze is taking a low now. Till then, take care.

Strategy For Jobs In The 'Street Thug' Level - Continued

Yesterday I posted about the strategy that you should use when you're at very low levels in the mafia wars game. I wrote about following a sequence in doing the jobs which will help you achieve the most in the least time in the game. Today, I'll be writing about the rest of the jobs in the 'Street Thug' level and the sequence that you'll need to follow when you're doing them. Yes, the list below is continuing the list started yesterday and is going in the same order:
  • Beat up rival gangster: This one also costs 2 energy points. However, the reason why I told you to pick 'Collect on a Loan' over this one first is because this one gives you $520 only which is only 1/4th of the amount received by the job done prior to this. This one also requires a baseball bat which you will already be having. However, this one also has a chance of receiving loot (this is where you can receive weapons or armors as a loot from doing the job). So do this before moving on and do the same with the skill point earned.
  • Corner store hold up: This job requires 3 energy points. This job gives you 3 experience points and $800.This job requires you to have a crowbar, so go ahead and purchase one from the inventory and then do this job over and over again until you master it completely. Spend the skill point earned on energy again.
  • Rob a Pimp: If so far you have done all of the tasks in the order that I mentioned then you would have enough money to purchase a Motorbike and a Machine Pistol which you will require for this job. So go ahead and purchase both of them and then come back and then master this job. This job gives you $1100 and also has a chance of loot. The reason why I told you to do the 'Corner store hold up' job before this one is because this one required two more items to be purchased both of which were expensive. So in case you have the amount of money required to purchase the two items before you did the 'Corner store hold up' job, then you may do this one first because overall this one is definitely better. The spending of the skill point remains the same (is it getting annoying?).
  • Warehouse Robbery: For doing this job you will need 5 energy points each time you do this. So normally, you will not be able to finish this job in one go. You'll have to wait till your energy regains itself and then have a go at it again. You will need a .45 cal pistol for this job, in my case I had already gotten this pistol through loot at one of the previous jobs. This job gives you 5 experience points and $1400.Once again you master this job and spend the skill point on your energy level and then move on to the next job.
  • Auto Theft: This is the last job in the 'Street Thug' level and probably the best one as well. Definitely saves you a lot of time as it takes 7 energy points for this but you receive 8 experience points in return (1 bonus) and you also get $2800. For this job you need a .45 cal pistol (which you will already have) and a sawed off shot gun. So go ahead and purchase the sawed off shotgun from the inventory and master this job and spending the skill point earned from mastering it on your energy level.

There you are. Phew, you did all of the jobs in the 'Street Thug' Level. You might have leveled up to 5+ in the midst of doing these jobs but I will definitely not recommend you to move on to the next level which is the 'Associate' level for level 5-8.

Finish all of this and you will receive a bonus (I'll leave that as a surprise for you). Coming up in the following days, I'll tell you what to do in the midst of these jobs when you have no energy left and you are waiting for for it to regain. Till then, chao.
