If Luigi's Club remained under Leone control as of GTA III's Finale, this does not mean that it would not have been possibly taken over by the Diablos later on, in 2002, for example.
It's the same as with Fort Staunton: the area being destroyed in GTA LCS didn't mean that it would remain a wasteland in GTA III, you know?
There was nobody else except for the Uptown Yardies and the Colombians who were involved in the SPANK trade. So the reason for the Leones and the Triads making peace over this matter didn't really fit as these two gangs were fighting for territory control. We will see that again in LCS.
About "Under Surveillance": Originally, in the PS2 version, it was the Mafia spying on the Yakuza operations in order to try and find Claude - simply because the Leones had some ideas about who issued Salvatore's Send-off and who was the assasin. And also, tell me, why would a powerful Mafia gang like the Leones not possess powerful weapons? Even Salvatore himself is carrying M16, as seen in "Sayonara Salvatore". It could only be assumed that the elite Family members wielded these weapons, and the ordinary members possessed less powerful weaponry, and that's all.
The reason why the Leones were replaced with the FBI on the PC version is unknown. But both version fit into the story perfectly enough.
Yes but the question is, what happened to the Leones after Salvatore's death not in 2002. I believe Luigi kept the club because the Leones didn't lose much influence.. Salvatore was getting old, so they probably already had someone ready to replace him.
I believe SPANK was ruining their import/export deals that's why Salvatore sent you to destroy the boat.. I don't think it was because they were rivals because in LCS there's only 1 mission against them given by Sal which you must kill Miguel (his twin? O_o) and it was because of a deal so they are more neutral than enemies. The Diablos and the Yakuza were involved as well, just against it and even the Hoods. The Leones might have lost some influences but they didn't died for real like the Sindaccos. They are all over Saint Mark's so they just replaced Sal with someone who has leadership skills in my opinion. They only lost a man, not a territory nor gang members.
If the "Under Surveillance" guys are truly from the Mafia I will be dissapointed for giving up at the first try.
