    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 ASAP to ensure yourselves a spot

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

    The games will take place on Mafia Universe : http://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/ . 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

    • 150 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
    • 10 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. 10 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, two players will directly advance to the Finale Game. The last finalist is selected by the Jury
    • 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

    There will be 10 Qualifying Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates during the months of May and June. 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.

    Kind regards,
    Thingyman

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

    --------------------------------------------

    As you read above, if our community intends to participate, we need to select two represntative players for our forum.

    • One Main Player
    • One Substitute Player
    It is not important for you to win the Game, what is important is playing and enjoying the game! So do not worry if you are a newbie, just play for fun! :)

    Also if you want help in knowing how the Mafia Game works, you may read this post by me : https://www.sugoidesu.net/threads/sugoi-desu-mafia-chat-thread.5801/page-4#post-93971 and ask any questions in that thread by mentioning me.

    How the representatives will be selected :-


    • You may express your interest in been SD's representative in this thread.
    • Once there are enough participants, there will be a voting thread set up for the members who showed interest.
    • Member who gets first place in the poll will be the main player and the second place will be the substitute player.
    • If there are ties, a tiebreaker vote will be used.
    The members who will represent our forum will get prizes which will be decided later on.

    Note: The deadline might get extended by three days.

    Our Main Representative is @Crispickle.

    Well @Thingyman has given our community a spot. We have one day to decide (The 22nd) who will go to the games. I have told everyone it now depends on how many come forward before the deadline. If no one comes forward then you will be the choice.

    Sorry, I think there's been a misunderstanding. Rohan asked me if you guys could get more time and so I thought he meant time added to the original deadline of April 23. So when I said you could get one extra day if you really needed it, that meant April 24.

    You have until April 23. And yeah, if you really need it, I'll accept you postponing it until April 24 :)

    This is the legit thing, huh? Well it isn't really as crazy as I thought it would be from the first bit, two 15 players games for those who win and 1 for everyone who participate and lose (which is the majority). Also everyone is new to the concept based on the "new community for every season rule" so that's a plus. Would probably go in a good day but I think I won't even be there for the summer, plus there probably should be around 2-3 people who are better than my rusty ass.


    I'd suggest SK but I don't know if he would be interested.

    UPDATE ON MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP

    Originally, the plan was for this season to feature 135 communities. We will now have 165 participating communities, which means that this season alone we will have more different communities represented than all other seasons combined. Approximately 60 communities are participating for the very first time. Of the returning communities, about a dozen of them are resending a previous representative, while the rest are all sending fresh faces.

    As a result of how big this season has gotten, we'll have more games to look forward to than ever before. We will have 11 qualifying games, 2 wildcard games and 1 finale game = 14 games in total.

    All kinds of communities are partipating. Besides the sites dedicated specifically to mafia, we have forums dedicated to popular entertainment, sports, poker, board games, online games, video games, role playing, LEGO, personality type testing, stick figure animations, science, atheism, music, mathematics, comics, students, etc. Some of these communities started playing mafia more than a decade ago; Others just started this year.

    Despite this being a forum event, we will also have communities that play the game via various chat clients (Discord, Telegram, IRC, custom, etc.) and via webcam (with games often streamed on Twitch.tv). And not least, there are communities centered around mafia game variants that you can buy on Steam (Town of Salem and Throne of Lies).

    This season will also have the biggest international scope yet. For the very first time we will have representatives from Romania, Hungary, Chile, Portugal, Ukraine and Czechia as well as our first person representing a Japanese community. We even have our first Native American.

    In addition to this, we of course welcome back countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Poland, Italy, Indonesia, South Africa and Ireland, meaning that we'll have more than 20 different countries represented in total.

    _________________________

    Final reminder: If your community hasn't picked a representative yet, your deadline is by the end of tomorrow (April 23). Edit: And by April 24 if you guys really needed it.

    Next update: I am hoping very much I will have all the info I need from all of the representatives by Wednesday at the latest next week. Assuming I do, I will schedule all the qualifying games on this day and get back to you with your representative's start date.
