You might get semi-wrecked while playing Mafia City

You'll regularly be able to enter into player-vs.-player combat. It's not synchronous. Yottagame isn't there yet (it'll be crazy if/when they are). But this is close. There's a place in the game called The Boneyard. It's the place featured in the top screenshot in this post. It's a desert, filled with junk and teeming with the characters of other real mafia game players.
They'll prowl around, itching for a fight. You'll be able to wage battle with them, relying on the mix of attack and defense skills you armed yourself with and hoping the behind-the-scenes calculations in the game make you the winner of a one-on-one fight. You'll be clicking away, hoping for critical strikes and dodges (on your part) and, if victorious, you'll see them die. Their character doesn't really die. They weren't even in control while you were fighting. But after they fall, you'll then be able to invade their game, start sledgehammering their property and rob them.
Yottagame will have some mercy on its players. A person's buildings can only be destroyed five times. Even if they're killed and sacked by numerous other players, they can only lose up to half of their potential earnings before the next time they log on. You might get semi-wrecked while playing Mafia City but you won't get wiped out. You'll also be able to recruit friends to protect your properties.
Back to the idea of the The Boneyard for a moment... once you go there, your character will then appear in other people's games. It will fight on its own, but should he or she be defeated, you'll have strangers invading your game, trying to rob your stuff. These people who you fight with, either because you attacked them or they attacked your character, will appear in a wide list of enemies across the bottom of your screen. You'll be able to go after them again. You'll even be able to mark them as rivals and keep them from ever falling off your list of enemies. "We want to enable social interactions not just with your friends but with people you fight and people who fight you," Wang told me.
