The Stat-a-Nator


Team Spockholm keeps cranking out the bookmarklets! The latest in the Nator series is out and this one will make you say "Cool".  The Stat-a-Nator makes it easy for you to find certain stats that are tracked yet hidden in the game.  We all know (well most of us) that the achievement page tracks some valuable statistics but once you get the achievement the tracking on your page stops.  A little known secret in Mafia Wars is that you can go to an achievement page of a player who hasn't got the achievement and see all of your statistics.  This is kind of a pain because you need to find a low level player, go to their profile and click on their achievements.  The Stat-a-Nator does all the foot work for you and in just a few clicks, your hidden statistics await.  To get started, follow the instructions below.

1.  Go to the Spockholm Mafia Tools External Site and locate the Stat-a-Nator bookmarklet.
2.  Click, drag and drop the Stat-a-Nator into your bookmark toolbar.
3.  Go to your Mafia Wars game and click on Stat-a-Nator (now located in your bookmarklet toolbar) once to unframe.
4.  Go to your unframed Mafia Wars game and click on Stat-a-Nator once again. Ideally you should be on your Home Page.  No worries, if you aren't on the right page, Stat-a-Nator will bring you there once you click "OK"
5. You will be directed to the profile page of Mafia Killer.  Now Mafia Killer started off with a plan to be the biggest bad ass ever seen in Mafia Wars and gave himself a name to fit his vision.  After 20 minutes or so he got bored and moved on to pursue other dreams.  He has graciously allowed Team Spockholm to use his account (which has zero achievements) so that all players can view their stats.  We all thank you Mafia Killer and hope you are happy harvesting and tending to your crops.
There are two options to view your stats.
  1)  The Zynga way
Scroll through all the shadowed achievements and your stats are the first number of the two located inside of the parenthesis.  Go get your glasses and you can see all of my Operation stats.
  2)  The Team Spockholm Way
Click on Stat-a-Nator one more time and you will get a easy to see and read list of your stats.  Completed achievements will be in green and uncompleted in red.
Some accounts are buggy when it comes to these achievements so you may see some weird numbers that don't make a lot of sense but that's all Zynga and has nothing to do with the Stat-a-Nator. Here are some interesting ones affecting my account.

My New York seems to have 12 Tiers.
Notice that I've completed 11 Districts in Las Vegas.
And somehow I built more than every part of my Casino (I know more properties were added but they could at least fix it to match).
Some items will appear in red even though you have the achievement. For example, I earned the Personal Fleet and Knife Thrower achievements but I sold all of my Town Cars and gave all my Butterfly Knives to [MIG] Chainsaw Chester.  Because of this the stats for these items are less than that of the achievement so it will show up as if I haven't achieved them yet.  Don't panic, just check you game if you think your achievement was taken away by the Zyngons.

  1. Great article, thanks Jennifer! :-)
    But we were missing you on the show!

  2. How do I find the job/mission that I can do to get the Personal Fleet Achievement. I have 40 but it's been a long time since I completed all of New York Missions.
