Crisis-cuba-title.PNG Cuba In Crisis[edit | edit source]

Cuba In Crisis Newspaper.png
In six days, Cuba will be overrun!

A shadowy organization called the Neo-Imperium is secretly working to destabilize the current world order and control all criminal activities throughout the planet. The Neo-Imperium are attempting to overthrow the government and install a puppet leader to establish one of the biggest drug trafficking centers in the world. This is a warning to all Mafia crime bosses that Cuba is no longer safe.

It’s time to head to Cuba and complete a series of missions to combat this new organization before time runs out and all players will be locked out from Cuba. You have until March 2 to complete these missions and do all other activities in Cuba. Job mastery in Cuba will be 5X and a new loot item will drop from jobs and fights in this unstable country. There are also new loot items and a 10% cash bonus for Mafia players who complete all the tasks in the allotted time.

You’ll need a lot of Politico Corruptos from your Bribery Ring property in Cuba to finish your “Crisis in Cuba” mission. If you’re running low on corrupt politicians, don’t worry. You’ll be able to send Politico Corruptos to your Mafia and request them from your friends through the Gift Page. The “Crisis in Cuba” Mission is available to users level 18 and above.

Mafia Wars Blog


Seasons change, and in March, Mafia Wars will change in an unprecedented way.

  • Cuba is closing, why?
  • We have some major things coming up in March, and part of the storyline involves the closing down of Cuba. 'A major disruption is about to happen. A powerful, new criminal organization is wreaking havoc on the current world order. This has caused an uprising in Cuba where all Mafia bosses will be deported. It will soon be revealed where and why this new criminal organization, the Neo-Imperium, is disrupting Cuba.'
  • What do you mean closing?
  • Cuba will no longer be accessible. It will be grayed out on the travel menu and any attempts to get to Cuba will be stopped with a popup. You will not be able to vault or revault Cuba collections. You will not be able to collect from Cuba properties or access the Cuba bank. You will not be able to complete Cuba achievements. You will not be able to fight or rob in Cuba.
  • When will this happen?
  • Cuba will be closing on March 3rd.
  • Is this permanent?
  • Cuba will be closed for the foreseeable future.
  • What if I have finished Cuba already?
  • In order to complete Cuba in Crisis mission, you will need to loot Prop 4's. This will only drop in jobs and fights (but not robs) in Cuba. Completing the mission will award you with the Special Mastery Item, an Embargo Net that will result in an additional 10% cash in <top secret location>.
  • What if I haven't finished Cuba already?
  • In addition to the Prop 4's, you will receive 5x Mastery on unmastered jobs. You might also want to ask for Politico Corruptos from your friends. Mastered jobs reward you with a skill point. In addition, there are Mastery Items for mastering each tier (El Rey Roadster, Guerilla Commando, Avispa Machine Gun, Che's Beret, Cocodrilo, and Cazador Assault Rifle) If you haven't vaulted the Cuba collections, each of them offer a permanent addition to your skill.
  • What if I don't finish Cuba in time?
  • Your Cuba progress will be frozen.
  • I like fighting in Cuba!
  • The Cuba version of fighting will also be closed for the foreseeable future.

Return To Cuba[edit | edit source]

Returntocuba.png
With the Neo-Imperium distracted by their criminal activities in other parts of the world, your chance has come to sneak back into Cuba. Your job progress will start for where you left off, but you’ll find a new tier of job mastery and powerful new loot. Be sure to hurry though, the Neo-Imperium won’t be fooled for long. Grab what you can while you can, because this temporary visa won’t last forever.

Cuba Event Developer Explanation:

Due to player request, we will be re-opening Cuba temporarily for 2 weeks. Many players are disappointed that they no longer have access to Cuba job progress and properties, so we wanted to attempt a temporary re-opening through a limited time event to see how players enjoy it.

During this time users will have access to Cuba with new added loot drops. Their job progress will be the same as when they left it. Additionally, for those players who already finished Cuba, we are releasing a Ruby tier of Job Mastery. We are very aware of the dedication players have put into finishing Cuba, so we wanted to make sure everyone has something to tackle in the re-opening, along with high end loot drops and new mastery items for completing Ruby Tiers.

We would really like to hear your feedback on this event, the Cuba shutdown event, and future city releases and events. We strive to make sure the new city content we release is the best for our players that it can be! Thanks everyone – and good luck dealing with the Neo-Imperium!
