4th Annual Mafia Championship at Mafia Universe.
So is TR sending a rep this year? Any objection to abdicating the choice to... um... me?

So then I'm going to troll the invite so TRians can gawk and jib.

INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 4)

Hello everyone! :)

I would very much like to invite your community to take part in Season 4 of the Mafia Championship.

The Mafia Championship is an annual online tournament series that pits representatives from various forum 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 become their "Champion".

Season 1 ran in 2013-2014, while Season 2 and Season 3 ran in 2015 and 2016, respectively. As of Season 3, a total of 160 communities have been represented in the Mafia Championship, making it the largest cross-forum event on the Internet.

I hope that all this sounds very exciting to you guys :)

1. Do you accept the invite?

If your community wishes to participate, please confirm your participation to me before April 16 to ensure yourselves a spot. If you need more time than this to think about whether you wish to participate, let me know and I can extend the deadline.

If you agree to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is April 23. If this is too soon for you, again, just let me know :)

The games will take place on Mafia Universe. If it's okay,

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.
  • Relevant only to communities that participated last season: Season 3 Finalists are not eligible to play again this season.

2. Season 4 Format

The tournament structure
  • 135 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
  • 9 Qualifying Games will be played consisting of 15 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifying Game. 1 player will advance directly to the Finale Game from each Qualifying Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. I.e. 9 of the 15 finalists will be found this way.
  • A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 3 will along with me discuss and vote to determine a group of 30 wildcard players who will play in 2 Semi Final Wildcard Games. From each of these two games, three players will directly advance to the Finale Game.
  • The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall hold the title of Season 4 Champion.

The setup

MOUNTAINOUS:
12 Vanilla Townies
3 Mafia Goons

We're going back to basics for Season 4. Each season we're changing it up, and for this season it's finally time to play without any power roles or abilities at all. Pure mafia. You have only yourself and your reading/bluffing abilities to count on.

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 4 Timeline

The first Qualifying Game is currently set to start April 24th. Additional games will take place in the 1-3 months following. I will create a Doodle and find out the best times to start the various games so that preferably everyone gets to play during a time that suits them well.


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

I know. He's played here but I don't exactly know what his username is here. Prince Humperdinck is the moniker I gave him in an anonymous Princess Bride game a few years back. There's also apparently a chance Nachomamma8 may play the championship, but since Humpty hasn't played at Ratskep we may have to coordinate nacho repping from there instead of from here. Nacho can't rep for MafiaScum 'cause they have a permanent snub of the championship. I'm the back-up of the back-up of the back-up if no one else from TR or Ratskep wants to go.

I have an idea who it might be, but am not 100% sure. He's an excellent driver.

You can have it.  Somehow my sock at MR got nominated to represent TR.

Also please don't travel to California to beat up my good friend Tim Lankins.

Nope, nope, Pav is enjoying retirement. We're got nachomamma in now from ratskep and are trying to bend the ear of divagreen to go for TR. We'll keep the throng of interested TRers informed.

RIP, diva, as your glorious slimetrail glimmers on a path to the sunset.

^ Sorry, my photobucket account also died. It wasn't nekid pics of diva or anything. honest.

But, alas, this Championship thing is ongoing and I forgot to keep everyone at TR who are clearly on the seat of their pants informed.
diva did not advance as the primary "best player" of her game, but all of divagreen, nachomamma8, and myself have advanced as wildcard selections into game #2 of the wildcard round, which is currently underway as of this post. There's some luvly things to watch that I'm not technically allowed to post about on pain of death.

diva just won as wolf in her wildcard game - she'll likely advance to the final.
nacho was killed again N1, and grit was killed N3, both Town, and both supporting diva as Town.

Alas, she won her game but did not advance - 3 other losing players were advanced ahead of her, despite her practically solo winning performance.
