Would you like to represent WWN in a multi-site mafia tournament?

Postby Linkman » Wed Mar 30, 2016 12:38 am

Uh

Hi Linkman

I saw you hosting a mafia game and was hoping that maybe you could help me out. I'm hosting a very big mafia championship tournament, featuring 136 different sites, and would like to extend an invitation to your community, but I'm not sure how best to go about this. Is there an appropriate thread for me to post this in, an appropriate person to talk to, or might you be willing to present the invitation on my behalf to the community? Any help would be much appreciated :)


Here's the information/invitation:

Invitation to The Mafia Championship Season 3

Hello fellow Mafia enthusiasts! :)

My name is Thingyman. I am making this post with the hopes that your community would be interested in participating in Season 3 of the Mafia Championship.

The Mafia Championship is an annual online tournament series that pits representatives from various forum Mafia communities against one another as they compete to determine the Internet’s greatest forum Mafia player. The representatives are officially and democratically chosen to be “Champions” by their respective communities.

Season 1 (2013-2014) featured 100+ players from 45+ different communities, and the Season 2 (2015) boasted an even more impressive count of 70 different communities represented. The creator of Mafia himself (Dmitry Davidoff) has even supported and endorsed the series by previously offering to privately chat with the ultimate winner.

This year we’re expanding once again; 136 communities will be invited to participate, making this not only the biggest Mafia event ever, but also the largest cross-forum event in the history of the Internet.

Are you interested?

I am hoping very much that this all sounds exciting! If interested, I would need you all to name one representative to play on your community's behalf. How you decide this representative is completely up to you. To guarantee your community a spot in Season 3 of the Mafia Championship, I will need to know of your community's interest within the next week (until April 4th). Following this, you will have an additional two weeks to decide your nominee (until April 18th). Additionally, it would be a very good idea to also name an alternate.

When deciding your nomination, please consider the following: You should of course be aiming to send one of your best players. But more importantly this individual needs to be able to participate adequately in terms of activity. Be prepared for at least upwards of 500 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. The representative needs to not only be able to read all this, but should also at least be able to manage 10+ posts per day phase. I repeat: These games will be active.

Season 3 Specifics

• 136 different communities are invited to participate. If some decline the invitation, I may opt to allow larger communities an additional nominee.
• 8 Qualifying Games will be played with 17 players each.
• 2 players advance to the Finale Game from each game based on post-game votes.
• 1 Wildcard Game will be played (Wildcards are decided by a jury consisting of former finalists), determining the 17th and final spot in the Finale. Runner-ups in this game will be first in line to replace any finalists who may have to drop out.

Season 3 Timeline & Important Dates

The first Qualifying Game is set to start April 25th. Additional games will take place in the 1-3 months following. I will create a Doodle and find out the best times to start the various games so that preferably everyone gets to play during a time that suits them well.

In addition to this, it is also a priority to ensure as much as possible that all the players in any given game has no prior history of playing with each other to ensure a level playing field (but I cannot 100% guarantee that this won’t happen).

Season 3 Game Design & Setup

For each season, we’ve changed it up. This time, we’re doing something new again!

The setup is called Matrix12 and is inspired by mafiascum’s popular Matrix6 setup, if any of you are familiar with that. In short, the concept is that there are 12 different possible setups and the host randomizes which one is used. The players know what setups are available, but not which one will be used!

I can link to the setup if a link is okay.

Regarding lynch mechanics: There will be a deadline each day phase, and the person with the most votes at the end of the day is lynched, unless a majority has already been reached before then, in which case the day ends prematurely.

Days will last 36 hours and nights 12 hours, meaning 48 hours (2 days) per game day. With one exception: The weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) will be one game day (so day will be 60 hours and night 12 hours on weekends).


I cannot for the life of me afford the time for something like this, but if one of you guys wants to carry the WWN flag I think it would be pretty cool!

Technically, I'm in a MafiaScum game (inb4 "traitor DX") and we're at 360+ posts in two days in-game -- meaning one month.
MysteriousLad be like:
Oh hello, I am MysteriousLad.
Do you know when I was an OP player? When I wasn't in WWN and massclaims were legit good? Yea I miss the days I could force town to claim, rout out the mafia, and win the game for free day 3. Sometimes without being killed!
Senpai HPD notices me everyday when I'm town, do no scum play, and still get lynched day 1.
Anyway, it's time to go and ask people to claim and go lynch those who don't with my high-skill OP role.
I am MysteriousLad.

With regards to the activity requirements, if it would be okay, I can link to the season 2 finale and you can try to get a sense of the pace.

mr thingy

i am totally interested in your games if for nothing else but the idea of breaking the ice by asking "hey everyone what side of the atlantic ocean do you live on?" but i only have about 4 hours of life which i could possibly devote to this on monday through thursday, and in that 4 hours that would have to compete with my significant video game addiction

to be perfectly honest, it is not the posting that is a problem, i can easily post 10 posts in the span of 5 minutes, it is the reading of the posts that would get me, see, i am not very good at paying attention to people other than myself

however the idea of 40 mysteriouslads is suitably horrifying enough that i still maintain a sliver of interest despite my reservations so please, post your link

They haven't gotten back to me yet. Last year, we ended it on a note of "maybe next year". I remain hopeful :)

Here's a link to the season 2 finale, which had 13 players: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/thr ... hip-Finale

That wasn't the most active game last season, but it's just to give you a sense of what types of posts and how long they are etc. to expect. If you read through that and feel that you could manage being in a game like that, you will probably be fine.

That setup was basically just a mountainous vanilla with the chance of things snowballing in the town's favour if the cop gets lucky.
