INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 8)

Ahoy there! :)

Im 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 Internets 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.

Its 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 its 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, theres 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 winners certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.


This years 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 (Ill 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 everyones 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 early July. So in other words, as long as your representative can play sometime during that period, they should be good and Ill make sure they get scheduled into a game that suits their schedule well. I.e. if your rep is busy until June, that isnt 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

That is the copy paste that is going around for Champs this season that Ara gave me, looks like Lissa wrote it up. If we decide on sending someone let me know and I can pass that along and help if you need to get setup on MU should you not already be signed up over there.

I know we've had a drought on Mafia games, but we still have some great players, who wants to give it a go?

Scare seems like a perfectly cromulent nominee outside of any volunteers.

I don't think I would be a good representative at the moment. I think you'd be a much better choice.

I'll do it but I'll bow to almost anyone else who would like to. It's honestly not that high stress a situation, a lot of communities aren't sending godlike mafia players, so I wouldn't shy away from giving it a shot. But if nobody else is up for it I'll take another stab (I did make the finals last time I repped b8). I'll sub if someone else goes. I leave that entirely up to you guys though!

Thats more than enough reason for you to go if you wanted to! Youll be great (again)

Now I'm all reminiscy and stuff . Post-game quote from my scum buddy in my one MU game where I won in final 4:

I mean we had a plan to just powerwolf through this thing but we decided to bus Turbo at one point because the the temperature in the thread was such that it seemed like he was going down. And if we bus him we always win. But the village wouldn't cooperate with our plan and refused to kill him and decided to lock clear him instead.

The Classic

Once I faked a guilty scan on him when he was scum and he basically said I was right but town still refused to lynch him.

Listed his entire scumteam as scum in his first post of the game and still won as the last living member of said scumteam as no one put together the odds of nailing the entire scumteam at once were ridiculous until it was too late.
