Mafia City – Recommended troop formations

This post is going to give you a few troop formations that work for tournament & turf attacks (they don’t work for attacking street forces.) These are definitely not the best formations in the game however they’re far superior to the prioritize crew formation. If you want to create your own formation the I would highly recommend that you go through my Troop Setup Guide & create a formation based on the guidelines laid down there. However, if you don’t have the time to read the guide & are looking for some quick formations here are a few recommended formations based on the troops you have:

Tournament Formations:

Bulker+Rider Formations: (Works for normal & elite troops)

Tier 10 formation:

50k t10 bulker
For remaining troops:
38% t10 biker
19% t8 biker
19% t9 bulker
9.5% t6 biker
9.5% t8 bulker
5% t5 bulker

Tier 9 formation:

50k t7 bulker
For remaining troops:
30% t9 bulker
30% t8 biker
15% t6 biker
15% t8 bulker
10% t5 bulker

Tier 8 formation:

50k t7 bulker
For remaining troops:
45% t8 biker
22% t6 biker
22% t8 bulker
11% t5 bulker

Tanker+Rider Formations: (Works for normal & elite troops)

Tier 10 formation:

50k t10 bulker
For remaining troops:
57% t10 biker
29% t8 biker
14% t6 biker

Tier 9 formation:

50k t7 bulker
For remaining troops:
67% t8 biker
33% t6 biker

Tier 8 formation:

50k t7 bulker
For remaining troops:
67% t8 biker
33% t6 biker

Tanker+Combater Formations: (Only works with elite troops. This formation can be used to counter Tanker+Rider / Bulker+Rider formations)

Tier 10 formation:

50k t10 bulker
For remaining troops:
57% t9 bulker
29% t8 bulker
14% t5 biker

Tanker+Shooter Formations: (Only works with elite troops. This formation can be used to counter Tanker+Combater formations)

Tier 10 formation:

50k t10 bulker
For remaining troops:
33% t10 shooter
33% t9 shooter
17% t8 shooter
17% t7 shooter

All the above formations are good for tournaments. You can make them more effective by adding 1 bait troop from each of the remaining tiers & types.

If you want to use these formations for turf attacks, make sure you use more bulkers (70k-100k is what I would recommend)

Hope this guide helped you find a better formation. If you’re looking for a detailed guide to understand how the battle mechanics work & if you want to create your own formations be sure to check out my Troop Setup Guide.

      1. It doesn’t really explain why the T9 are bad or the T8 are more effective in that guide, it has alot of information though and your guides are quite useful so thanks for making them

  1. Hi, Flavio can you do a troop formation bulkers and bikers t4 and t5? cause i haven’t unlocked the higher tier.
    thank you very much šŸ™‚

    1. If you have t4 & t5 troops, you should be focused on upgrading your mansion & getting higher tiers as soon as possible. It only makes sense to fight if you have t7+. At t4 / t5 troop formation doesn’t really matter much, just make sure you’re using a good amount of defensive bulkers in your march.

  2. I read allmost everything from you Flavio and thanks for all effort.

    I didnt find anything about attacking other turf? How that works? How i see 200k ops size burn 1,5 mil troops in other mansion. And not talking about big diference in stats. How that works? I heard defender dont use all troops….just 150% of your ops size. Is that true?

    1. A difference of 100% is usually enough to burn turfs even if they have over a million troops inside. It also depends on the composition of troops inside the turf. If there are no defensive bulkers, it might be very easy to burn a turf. You also have to consider elite troops vs regular troops. Sometimes elite troops make a huge difference even if there is not a huge stat advantage.

  3. I appreciated both of the posts on troop formation… great information. Just curious about why this doesn’t work against street forces? Is crew priority pretty much all you really need to go against street forces? (and the way I’ve figured out to improve my performance is to really look at what crew priority sends, and upping the building of the number of troops that are at 100 percent…especially when it’s a lower level force and they aren’t using the higher level force at 100 percent.–meaning my crew priority might only send 10,000 out of 20,000 level 8 bulkers I have, but will send every single one of my 30,000 level 7 bulkers, and even some of the level six…this means I need to build more level 7 bulkers until it reaches a point where it doesn’t send 100 percent of my level 7 bulkers)

    1. You should read my troop formation guide for more detailed information. I’ve explained why these formations work there. This post was for players who didn’t want to read the whole formation guide & just wanted some quick formations to work with

  4. Max lvl of dinner, leadership I, II, III (can be unlocked when reach m30) invest center and of course vigilantes

  5. Thanks for the Formation. I am sure that will help a lot of People ( me too )
    Can you make a Post about Troop Marsches.?
    I am surprised sometimes, how big the Troop Marsches can be.
    I work on Vigilantes, Investmentcenter etc. as much i can, but i dont know which can increase the Troop Marsches so high.
    Thx
