Mafia Wars Inventory update

An update to the Inventory is being released gradually to all players.

One of the primary differences is the ability for other players to see the quantities of items in your inventory.

However, if you have concerns about the privacy of your inventory, there is also the option to hide the quantities from other players by clicking the Change to private link at the bottom of your Profile page.

The following is unchanged from the old inventory layout.
  • Non-mafia members can see your top 501 items in each category used for defense when they attack you.
  • Other players cannot see your personal defense (or attack) skill*.
  • Other players can see your personal defense strength.
* This is a key part of the secret fighting formula and we would not expose this.

If you have any questions about the usage of the new inventory layout, please watch the following video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFaQ1XOpVNQ

If you have any feedback or suggestions about the updated inventory layout, please go to http://getsatisfaction.com/mafia_wars/ where players can discuss and vote on ideas.  Popular ideas (as determined by fellow players) are directly relayed to the design team for consideration.

  • Customer Support agents cannot restore the old inventory layout.
  • Customer Support agents also cannot add access to the new inventory layout.
