UPDATE: Server Trouble 3/27/14

Attention Mobsters –

We are currently experiencing some server trouble and downtime. We are working to get everything running again as quickly as possible. The Godfather apologizes for this incident! Thank you for your patience.

If you see an error message that looks like a wall of text, please DO NOT POST IT on any public forum or chat.

EDIT – The game is now back online and should be running normally. We will continue to monitor the game. If you have any problems, please send us an email at mobwars.support@metamoki.com.

New: Mobster Mission!

Hello Mobsters –

The Godfather has launched a new feature today called a “Mobster Mission.” For these missions, you will be given a goal to achieve within a certain period of time. If you hit the goal, you will earn rewards!  The goal target will be different for every player, and can be based on different factors.

This is a new area of interest for the Godfather, so if you have any feedback on the Mobster Mission idea please let us know. More creative goals and cooler rewards will be in the future if all you Don’s decide it could be a good venture. Thanks!

Update: Gifting Expiration

Over the past few days the Godfather has been focusing efforts on game efficiency. A very large amount of work has been done behind the scenes to make the system that runs Mob Wars more effective. One system in the game that has traditionally caused issues in the past, Gifting, has been an important area of focus in this effort. With the ability to store unlimited gifts, the game had to store a massive amount of information. Many of these gifts were being sent to, and stored by, inactive players. A secondary issue was that some players were spammed gifts that they could not or did not want to use, which prevented them from being able to collect the ones they wanted.

From now on, all unused requests will expire after 30 days. This will allow active players to continue along normally, while at the same time ensuring that the game can run more smoothly for everyone. Gifting sending and accepting rates are remaining the same.

The Godfather thanks you for your understanding as he streamlines his operation.

Booster Weekend! Bonus Fight XP

Booster active

The Godfather has just activated the “PvP fight XP booster” for this booster weekend! Earn bonus XP as you fight other players via the Fight page or their profile page.  Boss Battles still pay out normal xp.

When you fight another player, your total earned XP from that fight will be shown, along with the amount that was boosted. For example, if your total says… “YOU EARNED: 969 (+88)”, that means that you earned 88 extra XP on that fight, bringing your total to 969.  If you have any questions or feedback, shoot us an email at mobwars.support@metamoki.com.

Game Maintenance and Minor Update

Attention Mobsters –

The Godfather will be taking the game down for maintenance on Friday, March 14th at 10:00 AM, PST. We expect to only be offline for 15 – 30 minutes. The Godfather wishes you to take this time to reflect, and maybe make a cup of coffee. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve the game! If you have any questions or concerns about this downtime, please click here to visit our forums.

Also, the Godfather has made a minor change to how the “Heal” button on the newsfeed operates. The button will now heal you instantly, instead of opening up a pop-up dialog window. For more information and discussion, please click here.

 

Update: Stockpile Sorting

Attention Mobsters! The Godfather has reintroduced Stockpile Sorting, available only for your “Special” items category. To sort by item type, click on the dropdown arrow next to “Item” at the top of the list. Similarly, you can sort all of your items by attack and defense stats. The sorting for item stats will “remember” which item type you were last looking at. So if you want to see your best offensive weapon items for example, choose “Weapon” first, then choose to sort by Attack and only your Weapon items will be ranked by attack damage.

If you have a very large collection of items it may take a few seconds to sort, so please be patient before clicking the sort button again! For further discussion and feedback, please click here to visit the forums.
