The Mafia Wars expansion into Bangkok is currently in Beta. After completing several jobs you will be forced to pick a side, Yakuza or Triad. We will utilize this guide to relay to you what each side offers.
As you are entering Bangkok for the first time, after several jobs, you will be given a choice to do either Yakuza or Triad jobs. Each side has their own set of jobs, and will give a +3 loyalty to the side you pick as well as -1 to the opposite side. The loyalty affects which items you are allowed to buy in the Faction Store. Right now, the Faction Store is stocked with items that are mainly offence for Yakuza, versus Defence for Triad. It is possible to unlock both stores because you may return and re-do jobs and as long as you picked each side at least once you can earn influence there. Because you earn more than you lose you gain a net return of +2 in each faction if you do each faction's job once.
Frequently Asked Questions:
When do I pick my side (Yakuza or Triad)?
After completing 2-3 jobs each episode, you will be given the choice. There are at least 2 times each episode you get to choose.
Does which side I've chosen affect my mafia members or who I can fight?
While it doesn't affect your mafia members directly, your loyalty bar marks you in the fight screen as Yakuza or Triad. What this does is that when you go to fight, your loyalty meter changes based on what that player is marked as.
Is it possible to be Allied with both Yakuza and Triad at the same time?
