Mob Wars City and Properties
Buying up land and properties in Mob Wars is not an option, it is essential to the survival of any successful Mob Boss - and you would do nothing but succeed, correct?
Buy Early, Buy Often, Buy in Bulk
This may sound a bit like real life advice here, but it is true in Mob Wars. When you purchase a piece of land, or develop a piece of land in Mob Wars you begin earning an hourly income from said purchase. Pretty sweet deal right? Well, the reason this is required is that some of the Inventory you'll need, such as weapons, armor, and vehicles have an hourly upkeep. You'll need to have enough income from the properties to support your upkeep for this Inventory.
Every time you buy a piece of land, or upgrade a piece of land into a building (be it a Restaurant, Hotel, Casino), the price for it goes up. So, it is always best to wait until you can make a purchase of ten units at a time. For example, don't buy just one casino or hotel, wait until you have enough dough to purchase ten at a time. You'll thank yourself later.
Another note on properties. If you decide to sell a property, you'll only get half what you paid for it originally, so it is generally best to just hang on to whatever properties you might have. Unless of course, you have plenty of money to burn.
Mob Wars Calculators
In later levels it can become a struggle to try and figure out what properties would be the best investment choice. Luckily, fellow gamers have taken the time to make several Mob Wars Calculators. The one I find most useful is an Excel spreadsheet, you can download it here:

Building a Bigger Mob in Mob Wars
Bigger Is Better, or so They Say!
Its been a debate for centuries, but size really does matter - at least it does in the higher levels of Mob Wars. The game compensates for huge variances in mob size much like a man during a mid life crisis would buy a sports car, but sheer numbers do make a difference when you reach the higher levels of the game.
So, how exactly do you build a huge mob in Mob Wars? Especially if you have a limited friends list. Simple actually, there are groups on both Facebook and MySpace that exist for this purpose. Worried about privacy? Set your profile to private. Oh, and once someone is in your Mob Wars mob, they can safely be removed from your friends list. Just be warned that quickly adding and removing massive amounts of friends has been known to get your account flagged (at least on Facebook), so remove slowly.

Arming Your Mob!
If you're going to deal serious damage to other mob families in Mob Wars then you'll need to make sure that each person in your mob is properly equipped.
During battles each member of your mob can use one weapon, one defensive item (such as a vest or tactical armor), and one vehicle. Obviously you want to make some good choices here, always arm everyone in your mob with the best vehicle, weapon, and defensive item that is available at your level. But no more than what is needed. Stockpiling these items in mass quantities without a mob member to use them is just wasted upkeep every hour, that's no way to run a lucrative business.
For example, if you have a Mob Wars mob of 300, you would want 300 vehicles, 300 of the best weapon available, and 300 of the best armor available. Keep in mind that the best weapons in the game come from drops during missions (like the Tactical Shotgun which drops 20% of the time in the Drug Smuggling By Sea job, or the AK-47 with Grenade Launcher which drops in the Illegal Weapons Smuggling job).
Making Money in Mob Wars
How to Rake in Loads of Cash in Mob Wars
There are a couple of different ways to make money in Mob Wars. The most obvious is to complete different jobs and purchase properties with the cash generated by them. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done, especially since a lot of the early jobs don't have a real good payout. Another option is to fight. Using the Fight option you can score up to $70,000 per battle, not too bad if you're just beginning. The real money however, is on the Hitlist.
Mob Wars Hitlist
The Mob Wars Hitlist is where other mobsters have a bounty on their heads, placed by another player within the game, usually after they've been attacked. The thing to remember about the Hitlist is that you can't be afraid to die. If you die you won't lose anything, so unless you're overly concerned with your stats looking bad (kill to death ratio), don't sweat it.
It only takes one good hit on the Hitlist and you can rake in hundreds of millions of dollars, enough to start a good collection of Casinos, or whatever property you may need. Also, you only need to deal the final blow, so it isn't unheard of for a player to claim a bounty from a rival Mob Wars boss that is more than a hundred levels higher.
One last tip... don't let the game run your life! It is, after all, just a game.
