Mafia Online News

Updates and Moderators

Good morning everyone!

Some news and updates for you all - summarised below, because I am sleepy haha :)

Moderators

We now have 3 community moderators responsible for helping new players, moderating our article comments, forums, and Discord channel. They have a wealth of experience between them, and proven track records of helping other players.

Please note that Community Moderators (CMs) do not have any game moderation powers, they are still players. They are here to help and enhance the community, and to allow me to do what I do best - build new features.

So, a huge congratulations to Harleen, Capten, and Gorbachev. They have a wealth of experience moderating online communities, playing Mafia games, and have been with us since the beginning - in fact Harleen and Capten were both part of our Alpha and Beta rounds before the game even went live.

If you have questions about gameplay, or want to request new features, or anything like that - please contact a CMS - as I can't quite keep up with the amount of messages I get.

Discord

We are also now on Discord, and our Slack workspace will soon be closed. We verify all players, so please be helpful to your CMs when they try to do this. Join our Discord

New Features

And we have some new features, particularly lining up for Heists (5 player co-operatives) and to help ease the high-end balance on the ranking scales, and some small community enhancements - you may notice like buttons popping up all over the place. These are new, try them out!

  1. Driving - New activity, whereby you can be a getaway driver and improve your driving skill
  2. Judgement - Dons and bosses have a responsibility to their local communities to help pass judgement where the law fails
  3. We have also tweaked the mobile UI to make playing on mobile devices a much friendlier experience!

That's about all for now - but as always the next update isn't far away! :)

Community Moderators Wanted

Hey everyone

Anybody who has spoken to me will know that I am passionate about the game, especially its community, and ensuring that new players have all the support they need.

It’s no secret that I have a day job, obviously I have a day job, so my time in the evenings is spent developing new features, fixing any bugs which are found and stuff like that. I love helping you guys out, answering your questions, and although it isn’t my favourite job moderating our chat channels and forums is crucially important.

We’re getting busier, and I need some help to make sure the community side of things is done properly, whilst allowing the game to continue to grow. With this in mind I am looking for 2x Community Moderators.

Role

The role of a community moderator is everything to do with human interaction with the game. From ensuring a vibrant community exists, to helping new players understand the mechanics of the game, and moderating our community channels.

The successful moderators will be

  1. Friendly and helpful
  2. Active members of the community
  3. Active players of the game, with a solid understanding of its features
  4. Responsible and understand that power brings with it responsibility
  5. Have a solid grasp of the English language

The successful moderators will be responsible for

  1. Publishing community based news through the site, and perhaps other outlets
  2. Generating community based content for our newsletter
  3. Moderating comments on the game news functionality
  4. Quoting the word Popadom in their application
  5. Moderating community content within the forum
  6. Moderating our chat channels
  7. Taking moderation action, where appropriate, such as enforcing community bans on the game, and our chat channel

In return the moderators will receive

  1. Nothing of any value
  2. Probably the odd bit of abuse from people wishing to disrupt our community
  3. Most likely a lot of critique on their decisions
  4. Hopefully some sense of pride from helping our community thrive and providing a welcoming environment for new players of a game they had better love

Applying

If you’ve read this and still interested, because you’re even less mentally stable than I, then please apply via in game message to myself. Please use the template that you will find in the forum.

I will be accepting applications probably until Wednesday, and I’ll make a decision this week.

Thanks y’all, and good luck!

Shooting and Intimidation Skills

Good evening y'all

A very minor update, but one which will prove to be very important later on in the game. Bodyguard missions will now increase your intimidation skill, whilst assassination will increase your shooting skill.

These skills rank very similarly to drug production, but just to confirm these skills and their ranks before I get the game guide updated:

Drug Production

  1. Novice
  2. Amateur
  3. Professional
  4. Expert
  5. The Real Escobar

Shooting

  1. Novice
  2. Shooter
  3. Sniper
  4. Headshot
  5. Deadshot (because aint nobody a better shot than Deadshot!)

Intimidation

  1. Novice
  2. Supermarket Security
  3. Doorman
  4. Bodyguard
  5. Strong Arm

I promise the reasons for these skills will become clear in future versions very soon

Daily Rewards!

Good evening everyone

We now have daily rewards implemented! This means you get a reward for every day that you log in, getting increasingly better for every consecutive day.

I won't ruin the surprises about what the rewards are, but they are a little "thank you" for consistently playing, and to reward consistent activity within the game.

There have been a couple of little bug fixes put in place as well, and some minor UI tweaks based on feedback we've had from users.

More features coming soon, of course!

Service Disruption Tonight

Hey everyone

A quick heads up that there will be some slight service disruption tonight whilst I put our daily rewards system live. I anticipate this downtime being around 7pm UK Time, and should last no longer than about 5 minutes.

After this time you will be able to receive daily rewards for playing!
