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 13 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 22. If this is too soon for you, again, just let me know :)

 

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.
  • 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.

 

Kind regards,

Thingyman

that actually looks like something that would be funny.  whilst everyone is concerned about their standing and trying to play good, clean, mafia, I'd slap them around and call them stupid.

The only question is would I be the first player booted out overall.

Either of these scenarios would make this the last year they hold the Mafia Championship.

"...the largest cross-forum event on the Internet."

The JN legend would grow and miight even bring some new, adventurous souls to the board...

We could take down the tombstone and get on with teh goodness.

Nyn, you should find out if Ape and Pac can both go.

Thingyman says you can't have two representatives. But you can have a rep and a backup player. Most forums fail to have a backup... and so if their rep is a no show your backup player can actually sub in for the spot of a representative of another site.... if that makes sense. So there's a possibility that the backup player plays but it's not guaranteed.

Send CTM from JI, and Ape from JN. Easy solution.

So, clearly 80 is the only one serious about this. 

Volunteer 80. Unleash the continuum.

JiF as backup.

 

I approve of these choices. Yet, the Lizard King as the player and not the Lizard King as the back up would be a pretty solid representation of what JN  mafia has become.
