Default Mafia Champs 2020

INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 7)

Ahoy there!

Iím very excited to invite your community to participate in Season 7 of the Mafia Championship.

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

The tournament first started back in 2013. Since then, 320+ different communities and 50+ different nationalities have been represented.

Itís a super fun event that has created many new friendships and close bonds between communities. I hope that you would be interested in taking part

1. DO YOU ACCEPT THE INVITATION?

If your community wishes to participate, please confirm your participation to Lissa as soon as you can to ensure yourselves a spot. Currently, the plan is to accommodate 150 communities this season. If there is further interest, additional communities may sign up as substitutes; generally there are some replacements needed both before and during games.

If your community agrees to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is April 27, but the sooner the better.

The games will take place on Mafia Universe. If itís 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 500-600 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. Additionally, thereís 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 7 FORMAT

The tournament structure
  • 150 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
  • QUALIFIERS: 10 Qualifier Games will be played, consisting of 15 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifier Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. 1st and 2nd place will advance to the Semifinal Games.
  • SEMIFINALS: A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 6 will select 25 additional players to advance to the three Semifinal Games. From each game, five players will advance to the Finale Game based on a post-game player vote, just like in the qualifying phase.
  • THE FINALE: The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall receive the title of Season 7 Champion and a winnerís certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.

This yearís setup: JOAT^2
The setup is called JOAT^2 and features 15 players.

The setup consists of the following:

3x Mafia Goon
2x Town Jack Of All Trades (9x Doctor, 9x Motion Detector, 9x Tracker)
10x Vanilla Townie


Note that the Jacks Of All Trades must use all three actions before repeating an action, i.e. they are rotating. This does not mean they must use the actions in the same order every time.

Relevant mechanics info
- Day start.
- Majority lynch is enabled Day 2+, but majority is not required at any point in order to lynch.
- Tied votes will result in a player being lynched at random from among the tied players.
- 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 (Iíll organize your representative into a game with deadlines that suit their preferences).
- Thread is locked during Night Phases.
- Votes are automatically locked in at LYLO.
- Mafia factional kills are assigned. They can be tracked, watched, roleblocked, etc. (In this setup, that means they display as an action to the Tracker and the Motion Detector actions.)
- Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction. The mafia faction kill is mandatory.
- Mafia may communicate at any time.
- Each individual player may make a maximum of 150 posts per day phase (this restriction is lifted 2 hours before day end).
- The game will have a host to oversee everything and make sure everyoneís following the code of conduct, but otherwise the game is completely automated (automatic votecounts, thread locks and reveals roles automatically, the bot receives and processes actions, etc.).

3. SEASON 7 TIMELINE

There will be 10 Qualifier Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates ranging from late April to mid-June. So in other words, as long as your representative can play sometime during that period, they should be good and Iíll make sure they get scheduled into a game that suits their schedule well. I.e. if your rep is busy until June, that isnít a problem.

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

If you want to get in contact with me ASAP, you can find me on Discord (Lissa#8083).

Kind regards,
Lissa

Hello gang! Sunfan and I will be on the Jury for the 2020 Mafia Championships. What this means is that we have some voice in who gets to end up in the Semifinal bracket. (We'll be watching each of the Qualifying Games. We have no power beyond that.)

The representative nomination process doesn't need to be a big deal. My personal suggestion is to do the Three Vote method like we do for Host Voting. Each voter gets three votes which they declare in the TWGV tag. At the end of some period we tally the votes: the winner is our official representative and second place is nominated as our official replacement.

Sunfan should weigh in too, this is just one way to get both a main nominee and a replacement in the same process.

---Technically there isn't a rule about this, but I will be abstaining from this voting process.

yeah I think the three vote system is good
I think any of plop, star, xiz, roundbox, daikyi are worth sending, probably some more names

This is a good judgment.

Here is a voting addendum:

If you vote with the TWGV tag your votes are tentatively locked in UNLESS that player announces that they are unable or unwilling to play in the championships. If one of your candidates declines in thread, you get THOSE votes back to recast.

If your name gets a vote in this thread, please let everyone know if you are able and willing to take on either the Representative or Replacement role. Do not vote for yourself, but you may self-advocate or whip your dick out in thread otherwise.

Some advice---

From personal experience this is a fairly large time commitment. My Qualifiers game was in April and I needed a LOT of investment to keep up. More investment than most games I've played on this site. I was unemployed then so I could do it without too much trouble.

The Finals game was in October, and started during my first week of employment. Roughly the same amount of commitment required but I couldn't keep up as much with a full-time job and a new apartment to move in to. We still "won" but I was in full overdrive whenever I had free time. We would have lost otherwise.

So while the OP states Finals being in August/September, you need to make sure that you will be able to play even after the COVID quarantine ends. (This is nothing to worry about. Just ask- Would your normal day-to-day life let you play this game?)

+3 finale appearances
Flash Flash Revolution (4 finale spots with 1 sub + 1 wildcard spot)
Dark Lord Potter (3 finale spots + 2 wildcards with 1 sub)
MafiaManiac (3 finale spots + 1 wildcard spot)
Super Mafia All Stars (3 finale spots + 1 wildcard spot)
GameFAQs (3 finale spots)

makes me so happy to see
Looks like we need to update this, huh?

Feel like roundbox would be a good pick.

I know I had to replace in for someone last year and that was definitely an experience. Don't know if I played any good though, but whatever.
