    INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 6)


    Ahoy there! :)


    I’m very excited to invite your community to participate in Season 6 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, 270+ 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 Thingyman as soon as you can to ensure yourselves a spot. Currently, the plan is to accommodate 187 communities this season (last season featured 170 communities), and if interest is high enough we will expand even further to 204.


    If your community agrees to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is April 26, 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 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 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.


    2. SEASON 6 FORMAT


    The tournament structure

    • 187 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
    • QUALIFIERS: 11 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. 11 of the 17 finalists are found this way), while the 2nd place finishers will advance directly to one of the two Wildcard Games.
    • WILDCARDS: A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 5 will discuss and vote to determine 23 players in total deserving of a second chance. They will play in 2 Wildcard Games along with the aforementioned 2nd place finishers that advanced directly to these games. From each game, three 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 6 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.

    This year’s setup: Mad17

    The setup is called Mad17 and features 17 players.


    13x Town

    4x Mafia



    Each of the following 17 roles will be assigned at random to one player in the game without regard for the player's alignment. Each role is restricted to using its action only on the nights listed on the chart.





    Relevant mechanics info

    - Day start

    - Role reveals at death are alignment only. You will not learn a player's exact role when they die.

    - Majority is not in effect.

    - Votes are automatically locked in at LYLO.

    - Mafia factional kills are assigned. They can be tracked, watched, or roleblocked.

    - Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction.

    - Mafia members may perform the faction kill in addition to their regular action at the same time.

    - Mafia may communicate at any time.

    - Tied votes will result in a player being lynched at random from among the tied players.

    - Each individual player may make a maximum of 200 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 roles automatically, the bot receives and processes actions, etc.).


    3. SEASON 6 TIMELINE


    There will be 11 Qualifying Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates during the months of April, 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).


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


    Kind regards,

    Thingyman*

    *definitely not Logic, who like the hack he is has merely copy/pasted the entire request spiel and posted it for the convenience of all.

    Any questions may be directed at Logic if you choose to not contact Thingyman.

    So, have anyone accepted the invite? I think this site has many players to nominate. Also, who would be up for another game of mafia in late April/early May?

    Hey guys. I'm going on vacation next week, so won't be able to check in here. If you guys happen to decide on a representative for the Mafia Championship in that time, they can reach me on Mafia Universe or Discord (Thingyman#6075). I'll then make sure they get the information they need to get prepared :)

    I would, but I am doing an internship part of the summer. I was thinking about hosting or playing some games if I had time, but I won't know how much time I will have before then, so I can't commit. :(

    I am probably representing my home community of GiantitP this year.

    I think Winston has retired from mafia, but I could be wrong.
    Murska has declined the invite from the Playground.

    Manasi could be our nominee, if she's inclined to take it. I'm good with Pzelda as well, if he's up for it.

    I would be the saddest of all sad pandas if CivFanatics didn't participate this year. Esp with The Org and TW Center being out as well.

    But I'm still holding out hope!

    Hi I'm having second thoughts. I don't really want to commit to it if I'm not 100% sure I want to.

    I have no idea who else to reach out to for the nomination but I'm going through some of the older games and I'll see who I can ask.

    I don't think I was around enough to rep. Also, I'm hosting and I'm backing up for Paradox Plaza. I hope to see one of you in my game!

    I echo the same statements. I’m sort of being selective with the free time that I have right now with Overwatch and the such.

    I mean I technically could, but probably shouldn't, I haven't even played a single mafia game in over a year now.
