I had assumed the bigger the mob the better, assuming you can arm them. After reading another thread, i see some people have been reducing their mob size to get thier stats up. Can someone expound upon this?
I am at about 450 mob members and have about 600/300 weapons to armor. I dropped about 20 members to see if there was a difference, there wasn't. I have been upgrading my weapons, like crazy and my stats are going up. It seems like the more of a particular weapon/ armor I get, the more diluted it's contribution to my att/def score gets. For example, combat shotguns. The first few, i got all of the advertised att/def boost. The more I get the less I get until I only get 2 att/1 def, from the original advertised benefit of 6/4, now that I am at 36 combat shotguns. Right now at my level, I am pretty much immune to anyone but gold users, but I wouldn't mind boosting it up some more. Recently at my level (about 40), I have been investing in assault rifles, cleavers and swat helmets. I have about 20 of each.
In order to boost my att/def, score, should I drop mob members? If so how many? I have a bunch of lower level stuff (hence my high weap/armor), but i assume they are weak. For example I have about 80 brass knuckles. Are they really contributing to my score anymore? I have also been adding vehicles. I have about 25 so far.
What is the ratio of top weapons/armor/cars to have to your mafia? In my case with my current weapon/armor size, is it beneficial to drop mob members?
