Fight List

These days, with so many quitting Mafia Wars, sometimes it appears that someone is attacking you for no reason, or that they are hitting you too often. Usually the person is playing the game just as you are, clicking on names on the fight list. They do not have anything against the player they are attacking, you’re just a target on the list and nothing more. They keep hitting because, like you, they need their daily ices. This can often take over 100 attacks to get the ice.

Due to the dwindling numbers of players, fight lists are more likely to have the same names on them more often. It’s easy logic when one thinks about it. If there’s only 1,000 playing in a city at a time, then the odds of a player being in the 20 on the fight list are greater than if 5,000 players are playing at that moment. This will not get better with the current rate that players are quitting the game.
Players attacking and being attacked by the same player can lead to conflict. “Why are you attacking me???” Sometimes, there might be a reason you are being attacked. Maybe you have been lucky enough to land on their Rivals list, or they saw that you had attacked or iced them. Perhaps your family is at war with their family. What do you do? Sometimes a friendly message to the attacker will stop the attacks, other times, it might take diplomatic help from your family. If you’re just a name on the fight list, send them a friend request, and get them into your mafia. This will keep you from appearing on their fight list.

If you have been placed on their Rivals list, and they are intent on attacking you, perhaps a common friend might ask them why, and act on your behalf. A lot of times the grudge that keeps you on the Rivals list is not worth a conflict with the common friend to the attacker, and will result in the attacker moving on.

If the attacks are due to your family being in a war with the attacker’s family, then there are 2 things to do… fight hard in the game, and look to your family’s admins to work it out with the other family. Let them know you are taking a beating, as your family members might be able to divert the attacker’s attention by attacking them. Wars can last a couple hours or go a few months. They are also the most exciting parts of the game.
As players have left Mafia Wars, it has become more a game about fighting than completing missions and projects. Names will show up more often on your “Fighters” list, as well as on the “Your Attackers” list. While getting attacked and iced is part of the game, one does want to minimize the attacks that are at them specifically, as opposed to being incidental from showing up on the random fight list.
