After reading the thread about tip of the day I was wondering what do you do in game that brings you the most satisfaction.

For me it's probably robbing people with stats much greater than mine and winning. I always love those wall posts from people questioning how I was able to rob them with so much lower stats. It brings a smile to my face and is possibly what I enjoy the most.

And you?

At this point? Probably building economy. It's about all that's left that's free.

I loved when I got someone to do that. One of my best moments in the game. Until he hounded me for 3 weeks non stop every 2 hours!!!

Yup. butch wasn't too happy with you. Joeski did that to me as well....

I did get a player to drop Mafia to where I couldn't see him anymore after pounding his level 2s six times in a row (either that or he leveled 3 times in a day)

going back to farming with new items up for grabs:)
Focused a little on economy, TL and stat building for a while, and didn't get too far in any of those categories.

Mark me down for Economy, too.

@Shawn, don't stop the no bank. I lose every so often, but the benefits still far outweigh the 10% guaranteed loss to the bank.

I actually hit a no banker today successfully. Was my first 30K per attack...Lost explosives but came out ahead. Bummer that the system only let me get in 5 hits

I am curious how you rob with lower stats? Sounds like you do it over and over. I understand if you have a lot of weapons with high numbers, then your first weapon would beat their first defensive armor and so on. But is that the case? I periodically get robbed by someone with attack in the 8k range when I am at 17k and I have more mafia. I've combed thru my inventory, and I start to get weaker around my 350th weapon/armor.

Lately I've been doing a lot of blind attacks. It's almost like free gambling! Lol.

It is really cool when you blind attack someone and start winning $30k right on the first hit. On Thursday I had that happen with three consecutive rivals. $900k in less than 2 minutes, pretty lucky.

Others can speak to this better than I, but robberies benefit the attacker. My attack it 27k and I have been successful
Against people with almost double that defense especially if it included upgraded defensive buildings.. I lose quite often against them but if the target is worth it, I will try up to about 10 times.

I never understood this. If I was too strong the first time you attacked why am I susceptible the next time?
I am sure I wouldn't have let my guard down.
Each attack must include a random factor that is recalculated for every robbery and attack.

What I enjoy the most is talking to my friends and helping them with whatever questions or problems they have. I get a great deal of satisfaction and joy from helping others; it makes me feel happy and useful. I guess that's why I spent 30 years in the medical field.

Yeah, I like that I have a nice hood and good stats, but if it were that alone and not the people I'd have quit this game a long time ago.

Right this is going to sound incredibly pathetic but I like attacking a thug life opponent, letting each respect coin drop carefully without collecting it, and watch it all add up before on route to the next victim.
I will rob good respect buildings if possible and literally harvest it all up with my respect point tractor. I can do this happily Until I'm at no stamina, then i go and feed my pigs and chickens off game outside in the real world on my farm.
Guess I'm looking forward to unlocking exceleros, I nearly have 200k respect now! I need lots more though.

Good thing is I allied with her.
Sure man, banking hurts a lot, I won't easily do that with 10m + on hand. That would be 0.6m lost per day.

Yes most definately it does include a random factor. When the stat differences are very large I often get posts on my wall about how surprised they are that I won... That's why collecting on time is the only true defense

Hahahahaha well said.

I've gotten 2 people to sell all of their money buildings so far. It was their own fault for periodically making a feeble attempt to rob me back, thus keeping themselves on my newsfeed for an additional week.

Can't disagree with any of this. I loved it when one friend said my wall was like a mini forum, lol. Also rooting out cheaters (vageterian is the prize one so far) and the (thankfully rare) beatings handed out to openly racist eejits.

I agree with MP original comment...

Right now I'd like to get full expansion in the game and get as many buildings to ten! :D

And then I want to work on beautifying my hood :D

I agree with helping as well.... Last night I ran across a guy with little income and a ton of sniper dens. I left a comment on his wall and he commented back about how he was still losing. He had 450 mafia but was 250 vehicles short among other things... Pointed him to forums and hopefully he will have a better gaming experience as well

I spend most of my time building my economy anymore.. I have a hard time finding anyone worth robbing from that couldn't do 3x worse to me and with it being summer and me being active (race season and PWCs), I've got a terrible collection schedule...

Ahhh this game made me its ***** LOL there is still soooo much I enjoy about playing it :) – I love getting my attack/def stats up --- acquiring new “cool” weapons, I like getting my IPH up and like seeing the levels of my buildings rise. Also just like building new buildings. And of course I love to farm/rob (find juicy targets). I also like completing “maps” and going on “drop” hunts. And although I haven’t really started yet I look forward to buying decorations and moving buildings around my hood to beautify it :P
Heck I still enjoy the “events” !! even tho I have drastically changed the way I play them --- I used to use gold (sparingly) --- then went no gold but 20-21 opens per day --- and now I just open when I feel like it (i.e. don’t lose sleep or go outta my way to try and get the top item – cause we all know that just isn’t possible any more without using gold.

I just made up a new game. To play this game you need two of the same money building and they need to be at different levels. You also need a bit of free hood space for moving buildings.

First you get your two money buildings, same type/different level.

Next, arrange your hood in such a fashion that one of those two buildings, call it "building 1", has the level marker blocked by another building. Not a decoration, a building. The other building ("2") should have it's level visible, even if covered by a decoration (iPad users can't see your fancy decos anyways).

Now the final phase of the game, which can last however long you like: using that extra bit of hood space, periodically switch the two buildings places.

This probably accomplishes nothing, but if I ever get a post on my comments wondering wtf then I will laugh. I'm tempted to leave one building at level 3 or 4 and take it's twin to level 10. Then switch them. :eek::eek: Level 10 overnight!!?

Game within the game...

Income. Income, income, income. A hood so heavy not even the most insatiable robber could possibly slow my hoods absolute advance. Level 10 nightclubs. Level 7 number 2 will start upgrading tomorrow. 2mil an hour is only the beginning. I want to see my income at 5 mil, and I want defense to not be worthless.

Still never got a clear answer on the previous post. I've run through the guides, tutorials, and hints to understand how the game works, rules, etc, but still can't understand how this can be unless it's cheating somehow.

"rob with vastly lower stats?



I am curious how you rob with lower stats? Sounds like you do it over and over. I understand if you have a lot of weapons with high numbers, then your first weapon would beat their first defensive armor and so on. But is that the case?

It is not best weapon vs there best weapon. It is total number of weapons.

Take your level x5 ---- example level20 x5 = 100

You can take 100
100 Guns
100 Melee
100 Armor
100 Vehicles
100 Explosives

For a total of 500 weapons to defend with and 500 weapons to attack with.


****side note on robs - always easier then attack
