London officially opens. Sorry for the delay, but sometimes I need to sleep. Those who complained in the comments could have just looked at the game to see what’s new. For now, that’s all the information you’re going to get. I will create a small series on all things London and then combine the posts into one once everything is documented. Jobs, properties, fighting, collections, and achievements will follow. For now, the basics are as follows. Check the Mafia Wars Loot Lady Fan Page frequently for updates. The Mafia Wars Wiki London Page is being updated as well. For more details, visit the Official Mafia Wars Blog.
To access London, simply click on the “Enter” button from the Splash Page shown above. This is where you will get your rewards from the Lord Over London event. There are many variations of this popup and yours will depend on the level of mastery you achieved on Jack ‘O Lights and London Invites. You get London Cash (Pounds) and 1 Carnage. You also get an additional 100 Ponds to get started.
The Game Header is the same image we showed you from the servers. You start out with the Pounds that you earned and the additional 100 that were given to you for a maximum of 600. This will be needed to buy job equipment to do jobs. If you aren’t going to use it right away, bank it (or stay out of London) so it can’t be stolen in fights.
If you need more currency, repeat jobs or fight. Zynga hopes you will buy it from the Marketplace but that really isn’t necessary.
Just like Chicago, there are 3 new Districts to master. Only the first District is revealed upon start and the next ones will unlock once you master the previous one on the Bronze Level.
Instead of the basic “Do Job” buttons, London jobs have more action buttons that match the job descriptions. They serve the same purpose, to utilize energy.
The property ring is called the London Citadel. For now it’s composed of 3 properties that we will need to upgrade. For now they remain locked until you master a specific job in each district.
You will need the following parts to upgrade your properties. They are giftable but not on the Free Gift Page. The links to access the send page are below.
Eike did some searching of the back code and we will get skill points for purchasing items from the Night Club.
London contains a Crew that you will need to put together just like Brazil and Chicago. The Sniper is a permanent position so we will probably see Bandits appear. The London Crew positions are identical and do the same things as the ones in Brazil and Chicago.
Fighting is also the same as Brazil and Chicago. Pounds should be easy to come by through fighting and like all the other destinations will soon be devalued.
You can’t rob in London yet. We need to wait for enough players to upgrade their properties.
UPDATE: Several hours after release, robbing became available. The only property that is robable is the Olympic Stadium. The stamina/experience ratio is bad and will remain that way until the next two properties are added which won't be until Districts 5 and 6 are released.

There are three London Collections and we get a decent amount of skill point for vaulting them. Collection items drop while doing jobs and are giftable.
There are a total of 12 London Achievements. There must be a glitch in the Barmy Army achievement because I got it as soon as I went to the Achievement Page. You better go to before they fix it!
