  • Mafia Championship Season 8 Invitation

    Voth WillByVehiclethe_paulJessupsdrawkcabHalp kthx

    I got a message on discord from the Mafia Universe people. Mafia Champs Season 8 is starting soon and we've been invited back.

    For those of you who don't know, I represented TW Forums in Season 7 a while back. Long story short, it's basically a big tournament where a bunch of different forums send a representative and you get to experience playing against new people from a bunch of different backgrounds. In the game I played in, I was against Town of Salem, some pokemon forum, a magic the gathering forum, DSLReports forum, some gambling forum, etc.

    As a warning, most of them are far more... PC... than we are used to in Trenchwars. I apparently shocked the shit out of some people playing the way I normally do, so keep that in mind. You will probably get us permanently banned if you joke the way we do on a normal basis here, but aside from that, it's not that bad. You just have to be more clever in your insults. Calling them a smoothbrained donkey will probably work, but saying they're a dick ducking faggot won't fly.

    Oh, and they have a spectator discord with a shit ton of people watching and commenting on your play (which is interesting to read after the game). There's also a weekly twitch stream talk show thing. So eyes will be on you.

    Anyway, here's the message I got:

    "Hey Exalt! Season 8 of the mafia championship is starting soon; would you mind sharing the invite with SSCU Trench Wars Forums and getting rep selection hype going?
    [2:26 PM]
    Invite text is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing"

    To save you all a click:


    INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 8)


    Ahoy there!


    I’m very excited to invite your community to participate in Season 8 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 Internet’s greatest forum Mafia player. Each participating community democratically elects one person to represent them and be their “Champion”.


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


    It’s 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 May 7th, but the sooner the better.


    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 (a back-up) 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, 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!

    1. SEASON 8 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 7 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 8 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.


    This year’s setup: Gold Rush 15er

    2x Mafia Goons

    1x Mafia Roleblocker

    1x Town Motion Detector

    1x 1-Shot Town Vigilante (n2+)

    1x Town Doctor

    9x Vanilla Townie


    Flips are alignment only.


    Relevant mechanics info
    • Day start.
    • Majority elimination is enabled Day 2+, but majority is not required at any point for the elimination.
    • Tied votes will result in a player being eliminated 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 (I’ll 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 Motion Detector action.)
    • Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction. The mafia factional 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 everyone’s following the code of conduct, but otherwise the game is completely automated (automatic votecounts, thread locks and reveals alignments automatically, the bot receives and processes actions, etc.).
    1. SEASON 8 TIMELINE


    There will be 10 Qualifier Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates ranging from mid-May to the end of Junne. 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.


    The Semifinal Games will be played in July/August, 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



    Besides that, if you really want to see how it plays out, here's the game I played in: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...a-Championship. It was kind of a shit show, but it was our first time. Whoever we send this time won't have to go in blind like I did. I'm just giving a heads up to anyone that might be interested. I did it last time, so if anyone else wants to do it, they can be the rep this season if they'd like.

    I read through some of the game you played, Exalt. Pretty full of tryhard faggots.


    If we send Jessup, we never get invited again - that's for sure. Though the comedy of watching it might be worth the sacrifice.

      I actually think they'd like Jessup. You and I aren't exactly the personality types they're used to. Jessup is more of the norm over there. Still, if anyone else has free time and wants to creatively insult a bunch of tryhards, this is the place to do it. Kthx would be the one to get us banned, but it would be hilarious to see how he does it.

        That's funny Voth, I would feel the same way about you if you were sent. I volunteer to do this!

          So we need to decide whose going before May 7th. We choose the main person and a sub (if the main person can't continue for whatever reason).

          I'm ok with any of you going, including Jessup. Just be aware that it is definitely a time sink for about a week or so, and lurking is pretty frowned on, not that lurking has ever been a problem for either of you.

                  I've got a bunch of IRL stuff going on so I won't be able to follow it but I think sending Voth and Jessup is perfect. It's like a yin and yang situation but the two inner circles are filled with sociopathy. We should demand they switch off which one of them is playing on even/odd days. Do us proud!!!

                  Edit: Don't feel like you're not allowed to nominate yourself Exalt. Feel free to play if you want to.

                      If we're doing this as a vote, Voth has mine, assuming Exalt doesn't want to run it back. Voth has definitely been on a tear though, he'd represent us well up until he gets permanently banned from those forums

                        I'll host a game sometime soon if I get some time to make an interesting setup.

                        Voth/Jessup sounds like a good pair to send. Complete opposites in every way. Jessup might be a better sub than Voth if only because Voth is far more likely to get himself banned.

                            I guess I'm down. I'd prefer not to have Jessup as an understudy though, because she is a bit of an embarrassment should I actually move on in the tournament and can't continue for whatever reason months from now.

                            I think some of you may be forgetting history a bit too much. While this is a silly mafia tournament, I don't think Jessup represents the best of us in any way. I'd much prefer ixt if given the choice, and that's saying something.

                            the_paul Don't be a pussy.
