    The game has a Boss bug where a returning promoted Boss has Boss status but no functioning Boss powers.

    Here's what happened:

    So I joined a Mafia (Dream Team) and later was promoted to Boss level by original founder of Mafia who became underboss. I left the Mafia without promoting anyone and apparently there was no Boss after me (I assumed the game automatically would do this) when I returned to the Mafia, the game assigned me Boss status (judging from the leaderboard in Mafia and club view), however inside our Mafia Chat it shows that I am at Punk level.

    The problem is, though my title on the leaderboard shows me as Boss, I cannot demote, promote or kick anyone. Nobody can demote me either because I am supposedly on a higher level than them. The original founder is stuck on underboss and so we virtually dont have a "Boss" as mine's just a title with Punk functionality in reality.

    Suggestion:
    I suggest that perhaps when a person leaves the group as Boss without assigning anyone how about the title goes to most recent active player in the Top 10 automatically? I gather that some groups have inactive former bosses, or might even have a top player in the leader board so switching to former boss or the most powerful player may be a problem, as these might as well not active players for reasons beyond their control.

    Practicality Justification
    I don't mean to be too deep, but as in the real world in any social organisation if the leader would leave the most active would likely be perceived as the new leader of the group even if they were not originally voted into it. It seems intuitive. I believe my suggestion above would solve the problem of dead players in leading positions and also possibly ultimately solve the leaving Boss bug or I noted something similar.

    Regards,
    Robert (CaptainBob)

    It's a well known issue.

    It happens, if the one Boss with the founder title leaves the mafia. (You will found the founders name if you search for mafia – the name is written below the mafia name.)

    You will get the privileges back, as soon as you reboot the game or after approximately 5 minutes stay in game.

    Furthermore, if you leave a Mafia with the founder title, you cannot found another Mafia.

    Yes just to say when I left my own mafia I made my most loyal underboss boss..just to let all you new guys know to always do the same so your old mafia is in good hands..:wink:, not nice to leave them in the lurch by just leaving without sorting it out before you go..
