To prove a point, Whip and I became "friends" 20 minutes ago. Been attacked by 14 players (me being at 500 now) none of them beat me but my news feed is all screwed up and apparently Funzio is having a problem with a server (LOL) and I can't delete another player
Only problem is even if Funzio changed the Thug life requirement and made it so you had to have 500 to compete, what would stop someone from keeping mob requests on hand so they could mob up to 500 to complete their own thug life goals? But then once they are done playing delete 1 mob to go back and sit at 499 until they come back to play and then they just mob up to 500 again. They'd have to put in some kind of timer where you couldn't do thug life until you were at 500 for maybe 8 hours or something like that.
I know you all hate 499 mafia players but how do you feel about having a much lower mafia? I've never had a full mafia for my level even before they brought thug life back because I like having a high attack per mafia. At level 109 I have 310 mafia members and don't plan on going to 500 until I have enough vehicles for my whole mob. I do attack 500 players when they show on my rival list which is about half the time.
I don't think there is a problem with lower mafia totals while you are building up proper weapons. It's a better plan than the rivals I come across with 450 mafia and only 300 armor, what's the point if your not equipped?
I dont think there is anything wrong with having a strategy employed to grow with your gear. It is completely different. I was employing it before the 500 issue even arose, although close enough that I powered to 500 to avoid any question (and NYCPizzalover visiting again
