  • Mobsters,

    A set of new players are coming to pick a fight with you. These are mini bosses which will appear in the Fightlist.

    Icing or killing these players will count towards your progression in Iceboards, Family and Fight Seasons. However, you will not be able to view the profile of these players, add them to your rival lists or declare war against them.

    Choose your battles carefully, they could be stronger than you think!

    We will be gradually rolling out this feature to all players.
