A recent conspiracy has been uncovered of a sinister plot to turn children into cynical, practical, logical adults. One man reports being called a radical, liberal for not adhering to the program. Others even refer to such dissidents as "fanatical, criminals". It seems the goal is to turn people into respectable vegetables.

Mafia Championships: Season 5
« on: April 17, 2018, 09:39:01 PM »

INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 5)

Hello there! :)

It is with great pleasure that I hereby invite your community to take part in Season 5 of the Mafia Championship.

The Mafia Championship is an annual forum tournament series that pits representatives from various online Mafia (aka Werewolf) communities against one another as they compete to determine the Internet’s greatest forum Mafia player. Each participating community democratically elects one person to represent them and be their “Champion”.

The whole thing started back in 2013, and since then more than 225 different communities and 50+ different nationalities have been represented.

I hope it sounds like a fun and exciting event :)

1. DO YOU ACCEPT THE INVITE?

If your community wishes to participate, please confirm your participation to me as soon as you can to ensure yourselves a spot.

If you agree to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is May 1. If this is too soon for you to decide on anyone, let me know and we can work something out.

The games will take place on Mafia Universe. If it’s okay, I can link directly to the general discussion thread regarding this topic on Mafia Universe.

Important notes
  • You may decide yourselves how you want to elect your representative, but we highly recommend some sort of democratic process (public nominations followed by a poll usually works out well).
  • In addition to electing a representative, you should also name an alternate who will be asked to step in if the first choice needs to back out.
  • Your representative should be prepared for having to read upwards of 500 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. Additionally, there’s a requirement that each player must make at least 10 posts per Game Day. Only active players should apply/participate. I repeat: Your chosen player needs to be able to promise a good amount of activity on a daily basis.
2. SEASON 5 FORMAT

The tournament structure
  • 170 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
  • 10 Qualifying Games will be played, consisting of 17 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifying Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. 1st place will advance directly to the Finale Game (i.e. 10 of the 17 finalists are found this way), while the 2nd places will advance directly to one of the two Wildcard Games.
  • A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 4 will discuss and vote to determine 25 players in total deserving of a second chance: 1 will advance directly to the finale, and the 24 other players will play in 2 Wildcard Games along with the 2nd places that advanced directly to these. From each game, three players will directly advance to the Finale Game based on a post-game player vote.
  • The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall receive the title of Season 5 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.
The setup explained very briefly (more details on host site)
This (view picture below) is a semi-open grid setup meant for 17 players: 4 mafia versus 13 townies. First you randomly select a number to decide the mafia team's composition of Power Roles (1-2), then you randomly select a letter to decide the town's composition of Power Roles (A-E). Fill in the number of Vanilla Townies needed to make the town team have 13 members total, and you have your setup.



*Town Jack of All Trades: 1x Vigilante, 1x Roleblocker, 1x Tracker.

Relevant mechanics info
  • Day start.
  • Deadline Lynch w/ Option for Majority starting Day 2. I.e. when day timer runs out, person with most votes will be lynched. However, day can also be ended early (starting Day 2) if there is ever a majority of votes on one person.
  • If there is a tied lynch, one of the tied players will be randomly lynched.
  • No outside communication. I.e. you may not contact the other players outside of the thread (unless you are Mafia and wish to speak with your teammates).
  • Phase Lengths and Deadlines will be up to the players themselves (I’ll organize them into games with deadlines that suit their preferences).
  • Thread is locked during Night Phases.
3. SEASON 5 TIMELINE

There will be 10 Qualifying Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates during the months of May and June. So in other words, as long as your representative can play sometime during that period, they should be good and I’ll make sure they get scheduled into a game that suits their schedule well. I.e. if your rep is busy until June, that isn’t a problem.

Wildcard games will be played in July, and the Finale Game sometime in August/September (whenever we can work out something that suits everyone).

Kind regards,
Thingyman

If you want to get in contact with me ASAP, you can find me on Discord (Thingyman#6075).

For this year's Mafia Championships, we will select the attendee by voting for members who sign up.  To sign up as NSM representative simply say in, just like signing up for a game.  Once a sufficient number of players has entered or at 11:59 PM Central next Tuesday, we will begin a poll, which will be open for roughly a week.  The winner of the poll will be this year's attendee.  In the case of a tie, the poll will be redone with only the tied members as options.

he PM'd the Nocturne Of Shadow account

pretty hilarious all things considered

so how are we going to do voting this year?  Given we've got quite a few new players who deserve a slot in whatever nomination process it should probably be more democratic than "should we send davy or noc"

"should we send davy or BDS"
ftfy

I'll just say right now that I'd rather not participate (not like I'd even be the best pick anyway), but my choices would be BDS, davy, Toby, or (reluctantly) mikey. Now would be a good time to pull out those statistics you've been stockpiling, mikey, since that would give us a better idea of who are the best players on the forum.

Olimar, Toby, davy, BDS, dudeman, TZP, E gadd, Brawler are all players off the top of my head that would be perfectly fine choices. There isn't a large skill disparity here so it should mostly be about who is willing and who has the time and confidence to be active in the game.

Let's just not do bubbles or noc since they already went.

I think toby said he wasn't interested

personally I'd like to see E Gadd, BDS, or Brawler

E Gadd specifically is a really underrated player- stats from the past few games have shown he's actually a lot better than I thought he was

so I tried redoing the stats on a google doc since my mom won't let me use the desktop

I gave up pretty quick

the gist of what I did look at is E Gadd has an abnormally high amount of days survived and everyone else is close to even in basically every stat, but me e gadd and olimar have slightly above average win ratios

sample size too small bleh

so here's what we're gonna do:  PM me a list of 3 people you would like to see attend the mafia championships, then we'll vote on everyone nominated until there's a clear winner

sound good?

final thought:  I think we should consider running an off-the-grid setup or two just as a warm up since they're pretty interesting
