    Arena Smashup will start on Sept 17th Midnight PDT and will end on Sept 23rd 23:59 PM PDT.

    A:
    To form a league, our system will pit you against 30 players of similar strength selected from the entire Mafia Wars player base.

    Your league-based leaderboard will be populated based on the total Damage score of the Top 10 Arenas on any given day. You will compete with the rest of your league on this leaderboard.

    Please click on the “League” section of leaderboard to view your progress:

     

    Q: How often will the “league-based” Damage leaderboard reset?

    Q: I have played more than 10 Arenas and my Damage score is not adding up to my leaderboard total. Why?
    A:
    Please note that only Top-10 Arena Damage scores will count towards your progress in the leaderboard. Even if you play a lot of Arenas, you need to make sure that they fall under the Top-10 category for the damage scores to be counted towards the leaderboard progression.

    Q: What does “30% Bonus Damage from 1st Arena” mean?
    A:
    You will receive 30% additional Damage score in the first Arena played for any given day.

    Q: Will Damage dealt in Mob Fury Arenas count towards the progress?
    A:
    Yes, the Damage dealt in Mob Fury Arenas will be counted towards the progress. However, Damage dealt in Re-Matches and 1-on-1 Arena Challenges will not be counted.

    Q: Are there any changes to the Arena functionality during this event?
    A:
    Yes, during this limited time event, there will be a few changes in the Arena functionality:

    1.       30% Bonus Damage from 1st Arena: You will receive 30% additional Damage score in the first Arena played for any given day.

    Q: What are the rewards?
    A:
    There are different rewards for playing Arena Smashup based on your standing in the Arena. Please note that Rewards will be granted only if your total Damage score is greater than 0 for any given day.

    You can view the rewards and your progress on the Home Page module:
