11/30/2011: Some players are unable to connect to Mafia Wars 2


We are aware that many players of Mafia Wars 2 are not able to play the game at the moment.
We are actively engaged in fixing the connection problems and ensuring that all of our players will be able to play.
If you cannot play Mafia Wars 2 right now, please be patient and continue to try to load the game.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter.  There is no need to log a support ticket with us, for our agents cannot correct the connection problem.

"Right Between the Eyes" mission asks you for Smart Bullet 3 powerups (Mafia Wars 2)


The Mission "Right Between the Eyes" asks you to Snipe the tower guards on Boxer Island. Some players, during this mission, get a message that they need a Smart Bullet 3 powerup.
The mission briefing window leaves out the detail that you need to have 4 of the Smart Bullet 3 powerups in your inventory. As you pick off each of the guards, one of the powerups is removed from your inventory.
To finish this mission properly, make sure you have the required Smart Bullet 3 powerups in your inventory. You do not need to have the powerups activated to complete the mission.
The mission briefing window will soon be changed to reflect this discrepancy.
Thanks for your patience!

Not getting crafting credit in the mission "More Guns" (Mafia Wars2)


We're aware of some confusion regarding the Stiletto mission "More Guns".  Players say that they have crafted some of the Handgun B32s, but they aren't getting mission credit for them.
The misunderstading is that you must have 6 of the handguns in your inventory, not merely crafting them. You can craft the guns, or pay to get them in the mission window.  Either method will add them to your inventory and raise the mission tally.

After you make 2 of the Handgun B32s, that will allow you to craft the next weapon the Silenced B32, but you shouldn't do this. If you lose two from inventory to craft it, you won't get credit for the mission.

B32 Guns

You should craft 6 Handgun B32s to complete the mission, then do other actions.
We hope that this clears up the matter for you.

The Leaderboards will be resetting on December 1 (Mafia Wars2)


This is a bit of a 'heads up' notice, that the Leaderboards for our fighting arenas will be resetting on Thursday, December 1.
On this date, your tally of accumulated Tokens on the Leaderboards will be reset to 0. This will happen for all players. You should plan ahead so that you can get ahead, and stay ahead, of your friends!
Your current amount of earned Tokens (the amount listed in the upper-right part of the screen) will not be affected.
On that same date, the rewards for the Leaderboards will be changed, so there will be new things for you to compete for.
Remember, you can always click on the little "skull chalice" icon next to the arena name in order to see the time left in the monthly tournament.

"Clear more space in your override me inventory" message (Mafia Wars2)


We are aware of the unclear message that says, "Your inventory is full. Clear more space in your override me inventory."
We apologize for the poor language in that message.  There is no 'override me' inventory. The inventory section that is full is your Social Items.
Although it doesn't have a fullness indicator, there is a limit of 24 stacks of Social Items in your inventory. 
To clear space in the Social Items tab, go into the 'Misc' tab (the farthest right tab), and the first area is the social items category.
You will need to delete some full stacks of items in order to free up an empty slot in the social items area. 
This may mean you need to make some difficult decisions about what building you want to upgrade first, and put off upgrades of others. 
The confusing message will be changed very shortly.  We hope this clears up the issue for you.

Save Don’s Dinner

Reprinted from Official Mafia Wars Blog:
Save Don's Dinner
The Don is nostalgic for those big family gatherings and his mama’s roast turkey, so he’s invited you to Thanksgiving, but he needs more birds. Collect enough (25) turkeys - steal them from opponents' ice-cold hands if you have to - and he’ll reward you with a powerful item: his right-hand man, the Butler (155/95 at Ruby level). You start with 5 turkeys. After that, additional turkeys can be acquired by:

Requesting from your Mafia: You can receive up to 20 turkeys per day from requests to your friends; each request makes 5 turkeys available to be claimed by friends.
Earning from Jobs: You can earn up to 20 turkeys per day as loot dropped from doing jobs.
Stealing in Fights: If you can steal turkeys in fights, you can also lose turkeys in fights. (Keep reading to learn about the offensive tools and defensive measures you can take.) The fowl goes to the winner. You can steal up to 20 turkeys a day from others by winning battles and the sky’s the limit on turkeys won through icing.
Purchasing from the Marketplace: 10 turkeys for 10RP!
Turkey Protection: Protecting Your Birds
Turkey Protection guards your turkeys against theft for a limited time (5 minutes). You can gain them from your Mafia (max of 20 Turkey Protections received via requests per day) or purchased in quantities of 5 for 5RP or 10 for 8RP. Automatically depleted when you are attacked or iced.
Turkey Vision: Finding Birds Of An Unprotected Feather
While players with turkeys are visible without it, Turkey Vision can be used to see which players have turkeys that can be stolen – those that are unprotected or have low protection. 15 minutes of Turkey Vision can be purchased in the marketplace for 10RP.
The Save Don’s Dinner event has already begun and ends at 11:59pm (Pacific Time) on Wednesday, November 30th. You will be able to continue to purchase and redeem turkeys through December 7th. Good luck in your attempt to Save Don’s Dinner!
