    Nothing as specific as BttF, but it shares a theme. I am confident enough to run it as is, but if someone couldn't or wouldn't play but could offer some help. Another set of eyes might head off some Clarification requests.

    Hey, sorry for disappearing for a while.

    My game is still mostly ready to go, but in looking at the mechanics more I think I would need a co-host so that more hours of the day were covered by a host (or I would have to wait until my family is out of town so there's no one to bother me about staring at my computer all hours of the day).

    So anyone who has a game ready to go should feel free to go ahead of me.

    INVITATION TO THE MAFIA/PHALLA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 5)

    Hello there! :)

    It is with great pleasure that I hereby invite your community to take part in Season 5 of the Mafia/Phalla Championship.

    The Mafia Championship is an annual forum 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 whole thing started back in 2013, and since then more than 225 different communities and 50+ different nationalities have been represented.

    I hope it sounds like a fun and exciting event :)

    1. DO YOU ACCEPT THE INVITE?

    If your community wishes to participate, please confirm your participation to me as soon as you can to ensure yourselves a spot.

    If you agree to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is May 1. If this is too soon for you to decide on anyone, let me know and we can work something out.

    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.

    2. SEASON 5 FORMAT

    The tournament structure
    • 170 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
    • 10 Qualifying Games will be played, consisting of 17 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifying Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. 1st place will advance directly to the Finale Game (i.e. 10 of the 17 finalists are found this way), while the 2nd places will advance directly to one of the two Wildcard Games.
    • A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 4 will discuss and vote to determine 25 players in total deserving of a second chance: 1 will advance directly to the finale, and the 24 other players will play in 2 Wildcard Games along with the 2nd places that advanced directly to these. From each game, three players will directly advance to the Finale Game based on a post-game player vote.
    • The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall receive the title of Season 5 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.
    The setup explained very briefly (more details on host site)
    This (view picture below) is a semi-open grid setup meant for 17 players: 4 mafia versus 13 townies. First you randomly select a number to decide the mafia team's composition of Power Roles (1-2), then you randomly select a letter to decide the town's composition of Power Roles (A-E). Fill in the number of Vanilla Townies needed to make the town team have 13 members total, and you have your setup.

    *Town Jack of All Trades: 1x Vigilante, 1x Roleblocker, 1x Tracker.

    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 5 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.

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

    Kind regards,
    Thingyman

    Indeed, Infidel represented you guys way back in season 1.

  • InfidelInfidel Heretic Registered User regular
    Yeah, there's lots of people, someone else should represent this time!

    The style game is very different in meta than here, I'll warn. :)

    It doesn't sound like the championship wincon aligns with the players' actual wincons.

    We should send one of the roleplayers like @Virgil_Leads_You or @Sir Fabulous because the winner of this thing is likely to be the most entertaining player.

    I would volunteer @kime because nothing would prepare them.

    If people are into it, I'll start a nomination thread. If there isn't significant community support (say 20 unique posters engaging) then we'll decline the invitation.

    Does that sound acceptable to everybody?

    I think my rules for nomination are fairly reasonable but tell me if you think I'm missing something.

    While everyone is nominating each other to participate in the Hunger Games Mafia Championships, why don't you take some time to support your locally-sourced mafia games?

    What's the time zone like for the comp @Thingyman ?
    Is it likely to be that most players are from the US?
