    I'm guessing you're referring to the Anni town awards?

    Personally, I haven't come across that as a common issue, and would guess that doing that is more work than they're worth, if it's even possible!

    How many can we squeeze in?

    Nominating @Apoc for Most Dedicated/Enthusiastic Player!

    Keeping this short: as a player who practically always stays in the thread far longer than he had originally intended to after he says he'll leave, a player who is always pushing the limits of how far he can take mafia, a player always eager to talk to everyone about mafia both in and out of the thread... Apoc is a natural fit for this category!!!

    Also I know it's late but I was busy earlier, so if anyone wants to come in and second a nomination or two before Sheep comes in...

    Nominating @theknightsofneeee for Best Scum Player!

    As mafia, Knights is extremely talented at getting a good sense of the game structure to further his agenda!! He's excellent at knowing where to position himself and work with his partners in order to create his own path to victory! He's also able to easily change his mafia playstyle on the fly, adjusting to the situation as needed! As seen in his champs qualifier (game 6) and the 3/21 game, he's able to smoothly pocket people as needed and stay under the radar/out of a cannibalistic town's way, while knowing exactly when to push the right pressure points to cinch necessary mislynches!! Knights is also excellent even when he doesn't know his mafia team like in the Mob Psycho mash, finding creative ways to leverage mechanics to still be able to work with the rest of the mafia!!!

    Honestly I don't think it's fair to compare it to a regular sub, ESPECIALLY because of the entire group of people it had to discuss stuff with that it knew were all "town"

    No other sub gets to discuss with a group of other players for days before going in

    They also got to send messages periodically through different roles I believe? Plus they were kind of "part" of the game from the start... Just doesn't sit right with me that that's considered a substitute
    Yeah, it's super weird and awkward to categorize in any awards category at all for a variety of excellent reasons so that is like... ??? Hence me not being sure where to put it!!!

    Honestly, I'm fine with it not going into any category at all in the end as I just wanted to do a write-up and recognize the play in general!!

    I could elaborate more on this, but I'm sure GH doesn't need a bigger head ( ) and this is getting way off tangent anyway; restating that if you think there are better nominations... go make them!!!

    I mostly lean towards it being pretty unnecessary, I suppose?

    I didn't get the sense it was a widely-wanted update, considering the lack of general consensus discussing this with various other people; would be interested if people have generally changed their minds on this/agree with it/disagree with it/otherwise!!

    It was likened to the level of calling for size 7 fonts to be banned as a practice that some don't like seeing, but I don't think a mechanical fix is the correct answer!!!

    Thing is, I do think that the performance was outstanding, like expected if the three best town players stick their heads together, it just... doesn't really fit the nominations that I can come up with.
    So come up with better nominations; it's not too late!!!

    Edit: Another thing: perhaps it wasn't emphasized as much, but a large portion of the nomination was due to GH's gameplay itself as well; there's a reason why I didn't nominate Newcomb/Voxx for their reads!!

    Like sure, one can have good reads; rallying the town together in a productive manner to advance town wincon while on the brink of defeat is an entirely different matter, which was executed in a manner that was well done!

    I come to you now, at the turn of the tide.

    I'm one of the spirits that has been in communication with Stupendous Student, among others. I'm here for this dayphase, that's it. Once the D4 lynch happens, I go back to the spirit realm and the orignal Generous Genie gets his slot back. So you have me for the day only.

    And if you're wise at all you had better $#@!ing listen to me because hoo boy, y'all are getting your asses kicked right now.

    No ITAs, rip. Whatever. We'll do this the hard way.

    I can take questions about specifics but there's no guarantees that I'll be able to answer. In fact there's a good chance I won't be able to. Reads are fair game, though.

    Lettuce begin.

    We have lots of these kinds of posts from Fairy on D1. There's not many posts in total but enough to establish a precense and a general "woe is me, I'm coming in from the cold from not having played ww in a while", which, fine, sure, but the problem is that it's nearly 100% substituted for actual townplay.

    whatever it's on my mind
    Bolding is mine. There are lots of these little qualifiers at the end of Fairy's posts, and regardless of whether or not Fairy's stated mindstate is actually true (and I believe it is), these little qualifiers are just wolfy in a vacuum. They don't add anything to the posts, they're just kind of there in that wolfy way that wolves do to try to imitate villagery thought. It sticks out though, it's not actually villagery thought, it's a mannequin of villagery thought put on display at the front of the store to show off the clothing, but the problem is that the person who set the mannequin up is working minimum wage and had to close last night before being called in this morning to open and clearly hates their job. That metaphor got away from me. You know what I mean.

    any reason why you thought the wagon grew fast? like was there a particular wolf wagon at the time that you thought the noxious nurse wagon velocity was trying to protect

    man this is so weird i really have forgotten how to play mafia


    There's just a bunch of questions and level 1 thoughts that don't go anywhere.

    The bottom line is that Fairy doesn't care. Their IRL situation being whatever it is, they probably wouldn't care anyway, but there's a villagery not caring and then there's a wolfy not caring, and this is the latter. Fairy's doing enough to skate by, but there's no spark at all, and honestly I kind of just want to put them out of their misery.

    Finally, solve around Fairy. Fairy's kind of been in that Goldilocks zone, a good part of which due to our (the spirits') pushing that slot, but there's never been sustained momentum to kill it off. The wagon has always stalled around 3rd or so from the top (I know that there was a brief period last EOD where Fairy was in second, but wagons were something like 6-3 and quickly shifted, so I'm ignoring it). Think of this exact gamestate, think of what it's been, think back to your past games and how wolves have clamped down on potential mid/lategame rallies when they've had the advantage and see how they've protected their own. This fits that archetype to a T. They are not letting Fairy go down, point blank.

    This brings me to Mummy.

    Mummy has a lot of posts. That's a point in Mummy's favor for sure. But the content within is not nearly as good.

    Take a skim of Mummy's iso (I know, it's long, I'm sorry). You don't need to read anything in-depth. Just try to get a feel for Mummy's take on the game. Try to immerse yourself in Mummy's head and follow their thoughts. Consult your inner soul as to whether Mummy is truly a villager in an increasingly cloudy situation or whether or not Mummy's just posting to post and kind of motoring along.

    Not convinced? Need actual evidence? Let's see how they treat Fairy.

    Here's D3, prior to ITA1. Shots lists are going around. Mummy was on Banana and eventually domed him, yes, credit to Mummy for that, but Banana was a dead man walking with kind of a crap role. Easily bussable for #cred. Meanwhile, compare to how Mummy reacts when Fairy is brought up:

    Quote Originally Posted by Mumbling Mummy (#5507)

    i can't get myself to trust it yet
    Quote Originally Posted by Mumbling Mummy (#5532)

    it's basically "yeah good thoughts overall but nothing stemmed from one post they made" and then them just voting and ita'ing a bunch of villagers

    i don't get the point you're making on the "i'm allergic to something in soldier's iso" thing. voting and ita'ing a bunch of villagers is wolfy on the surface but it like... means basically nothing. why is fairy voting and ita'ing a bunch of villagers wolfy?

    the fact that you're so convinced on it perplexes me
    Quote Originally Posted by Mumbling Mummy (#5534)
    i'm not going oppose ita shots on fairy

    i just think this case is very weak
    Quote Originally Posted by Mumbling Mummy (#5547)

    fairy's iso doesn't hold up overall now. but i absolutely wouldn't ita them over banana, ringmaster, or pharaoh

    Mummy gives a seal of approval to a shots list with Fairy on it, but spends the entire time focusing elsewhere:

    lemme look at the other names real quick...
    Quote Originally Posted by Mumbling Mummy (#5771)

    yeah bad shot on cheerleader and voted werewolf but they're sorta villagery regardless!

    Quote Originally Posted by Mumbling Mummy (#5866)

    for any other spicy shots... apparently foxy is slightly spicy. princess doesn't actually ping as villagery atm
    And later deflected further attention on Fairy by calling Student villagery but not trusting the spirits or our reads. Fair, but like. Come on.

    This is a wolf doing everything in their power to keep a wolfbro alive. It just is. There's deflection onto Pharaoh, a villager whose iso was somewhat wolfy but even more bare than Fairy's, Ringmaster, someone still alive but who I'd bet flips town, and other previously unmentioned targets. Not once has Mummy given an independent read on Fairy with any teeth whatsoever. The sum of it has been "meh kind of a weak iso but idk" and then lots of deflection.

    ---

    Finally, Ghost. I'm spending less time on this because I'm less confident in this wolfread than I am the other two and also already have had to write multiple sections of this post up more than once, but a good chunk of Ghost's haikus are simply him announcing what he intends to do with very little followup or villagery thought. Especially early on. It's a close cousin to the classic wolf "calls his shots instead of just shooting them" read and I don't buy it.

    ---

    CONCLUSION: I think Fairy is a strong wolf role who is actively being protected. Fairy today, Mummy tomorrow. Ghost probably wolfing but reevaluate if necessary once we get there.

    ##Vote Fanciful Fairy

    Sorry for the wall. Not really though.

    Drunk Dragon I kind of liked on D2 but low content and haven't followed up, probably should put in null.
    Posh Pirate, not sure, leaning town on balance + a couple of other things despite reads/stances today.
    Clown seems legit.
    Mouse, no idea because of all the Suzie $#@! surrounding him + spirit conduit. Lol. That role might $#@! us. Not our problem today at any rate.
    Ringmaster haven't read but feels v due to Mummy push assuming I'm right on Mummy.

    #Sprits guidance in the middle categories if you could.
    As much as his sub hurt we successfully steered town towards the kill that helped us most and they lost in the night phase. His presence ultimately didn't change the outcome of the game, so I'm not sure if this is a good nomination.

    Especially considering that he wasn't a "clean sub" and coming in with reads from Newcomb and Voxx. He was more of an uninformed spectator subbing in.
    You are absolutely correct in noting that his sub did not cause an eventual town victory in the game, hence the nomination being specifically stated for mostly "Best Performance" categories and not the "Play Contributing The Most For His Alignment's Victory" category!!

    Also, I'm not sure what you mean about "steered town towards the kill that helped us most", perhaps you are misremembering? I hinted at this in the nomination but to be specific, GH's greatest push was Fanciful Fairy, who he had correctly identified as a strong mafia PR!! Him driving that read to be lynched was basically town's only hope, and as Fanciful Fairy was the mafia nightvig, that role turned out to be pretty important!

    At the time, we (the hosts) mapped it out and determined that Fanciful Fairy was the only possible lynch that could result in the game continuing into the night phase; literally any other lynch that day (even on a mafia partner) would have resulted in a mafia win at EoD 4 and not SoD 5!! While he was not able to turn the game into a town victory, he still gave a wonderful performance to truly give town another chance, which I personally found worthy of nomination!

    It's not quite a sub though it's arguably not quite the other categories either; while partially done for fun, the categories mentioned are also suggestions for whichever fits the best!!!

    Perhaps simply Best Town Performance, after having let the nomination sit for a bit!!

    Mummy has a lot of posts. That's a point in Mummy's favor for sure. But the content within is not nearly as good.

    Take a skim of Mummy's iso (I know, it's long, I'm sorry). You don't need to read anything in-depth. Just try to get a feel for Mummy's take on the game. Try to immerse yourself in Mummy's head and follow their thoughts. Consult your inner soul as to whether Mummy is truly a villager in an increasingly cloudy situation or whether or not Mummy's just posting to post and kind of motoring along.

    Not convinced? Need actual evidence? Let's see how they treat Fairy.

    Here's D3, prior to ITA1. Shots lists are going around. Mummy was on Banana and eventually domed him, yes, credit to Mummy for that, but Banana was a dead man walking with kind of a crap role. Easily bussable for #cred. Meanwhile, compare to how Mummy reacts when Fairy is brought up:

    I'd add Fairy (based on my own read more than the spirits by the way), but this one has my thumbs up I guess
    yeah i guess so based on the spirit message but uh

    i can't get myself to trust it yet

    it's basically "yeah good thoughts overall but nothing stemmed from one post they made" and then them just voting and ita'ing a bunch of villagers

    i don't get the point you're making on the "i'm allergic to something in soldier's iso" thing. voting and ita'ing a bunch of villagers is wolfy on the surface but it like... means basically nothing. why is fairy voting and ita'ing a bunch of villagers wolfy?

    the fact that you're so convinced on it perplexes me

    Look, I'm bad at explaining things. Let me try and collect things in a more sensible format.
    i await it!

    fairy's iso doesn't hold up overall now. but i absolutely wouldn't ita them over banana, ringmaster, or pharaoh

    seal of approval on this
    Mummy gives a seal of approval to a shots list with Fairy on it, but spends the entire time focusing elsewhere:

    i want pharaoh and ringmaster dead first

    And later deflected further attention on Fairy by calling Student villagery but not trusting the spirits or our reads. Fair, but like. Come on.

    This is a wolf doing everything in their power to keep a wolfbro alive. It just is. There's deflection onto Pharaoh, a villager whose iso was somewhat wolfy but even more bare than Fairy's, Ringmaster, someone still alive but who I'd bet flips town, and other previously unmentioned targets. Not once has Mummy given an independent read on Fairy with any teeth whatsoever. The sum of it has been "meh kind of a weak iso but idk" and then lots of deflection.

    ---

    Finally, Ghost. I'm spending less time on this because I'm less confident in this wolfread than I am the other two and also already have had to write multiple sections of this post up more than once, but a good chunk of Ghost's haikus are simply him announcing what he intends to do with very little followup or villagery thought. Especially early on. It's a close cousin to the classic wolf "calls his shots instead of just shooting them" read and I don't buy it.

    ---

    CONCLUSION: I think Fairy is a strong wolf role who is actively being protected. Fairy today, Mummy tomorrow. Ghost probably wolfing but reevaluate if necessary once we get there.

    ##Vote Fanciful Fairy

    Sorry for the wall. Not really though.

    Drunk Dragon I kind of liked on D2 but low content and haven't followed up, probably should put in null.
    Posh Pirate, not sure, leaning town on balance + a couple of other things despite reads/stances today.
    Clown seems legit.
    Mouse, no idea because of all the Suzie $#@! surrounding him + spirit conduit. Lol. That role might $#@! us. Not our problem today at any rate.
    Ringmaster haven't read but feels v due to Mummy push assuming I'm right on Mummy.

    Nominating @Mantichora for Best Scum Performance - Single Player (Small Game) in Reverse Mentor/Mentee Mafia!

    This is a primarily enjoyment nomination, which can be summed up neatly in this post:

    Can you talk about this more?

    I've read it like 3 times and it looks like word salad

    You got two competing hotdogs stands. They both sell great hotdogs at great prices in great locations. How do you decide which stand you shop at?

    It's like, you're both extremely boring to me. I just cant bring myself to care. What's more interesting is thinking about it from an investor's standpoint

    They gotta talk to each other about the hotdogs stands in a way that's divorced from buying a hotdog, and that's what I'm interested in.

    Empoof is looking to invest in you, and I wonder "why?" Maybe I should too. But I'm a hipster and I don't want to follow a big bandwagon so I think about "why not?"

    Does that make sense?
    Bonus:

  20. Nominating Jaleb for Best Turbo Player! Jaleb...

    Nominating @Jaleb for Best Turbo Player!

    Jaleb is the type of turbo player that I find to be inscrutable in the best way: usually making the type of posts that make him unlynchable as town even if I'm not sure why, yet also able to stay well out of the PoE as mafia!! He's able to subtly charm his way into towncores and you can't dislodge him... until it's too late!!!

    Also does extremely well in late-game, in those F3s and F5s!!
  21. Nominating @Hyena...

    Nominating @Hyena for Best Turbo Player!

    Hyena is simply an all-around solid turboer and fairly dependable if you rand the same alignment as him!! He knows how to navigate the world of turbos and swiftly figure out the path to victory, regardless of alignment! He's particularly good at listening to others and pinpointing which players he needs to vote where in order to achieve needed votes, and is overall very chill and fun to hang out in the thread with!!
  22. Nominating @DaBackpack...

    Nominating @DaBackpack for Best Fake Claim in Season 6 Game 1!!

    Scene: It's SoD 4, and town haven't killed a single mafia player yet! They're in fairly dire straits since it's already MYLO with only 10 players left, and not much to show for it!!

    Enter DaBackpack, flourishing a red check triumphantly over his shoulder! He tosses it down on the table, bidding the town to follow... and follow they do! He deftly dodges suspicion levied his way and continues confidently striding towards that last mislynching needed for the win! DaBackpack's compatriots watch deviously from the shadows, ready to pounce, as the check wraps up the game neatly in the first mafia stomp of the champs season!!
  23. Nominating Quick_Ben for Best Fake Claim in Mob...

    Nominating @Quick_Ben for Best Fake Claim in Mob Psycho 100!

    They say all the best lies have a kernel of truth in them... or something like that!!

    Quick_Ben's main mafia role was an ITA-altering role, originally used for nefarious purposes to stop a player from shooting a (then-dead) mafia partner! Because the target was alerted of something ITA-related, he was able to pull off the claim of boosting the ITA shot instead! Though the target had shot someone else, their originally-stated intentions essentially helped clear QB to get him out of the PoE and slip him into endgame!! Outside of the fakeclaim mechanics, he pulled it off with a slick, deadpan style that helped him slide into the top towns of practically everyone when it mattered!!!
  24. Nominating yogsloth for Best Mechanics/Strategic...

    Nominating @yogsloth for Best Mechanics/Strategic Player!

    Not sure if this quite applies to the category, but Yog's been pretty sweet at deciphering mechanics and determining the correct course of action to take next as town!! The example that's stuck in my mind is day 2 of the Mob Psycho mash; after seeing a mafia player with the same role name as an apparent "NPC" in the game die, he drove that lynch as hard as he could! It was even better for him to do than he initially thought, since the mafia needed the NPC to live until the next day to be able to use her role and create further chaos!!!

    A solid post where he laid out his reasoning:

    The Dragger!



    The Dragger looks like a regular woman with long straight black hair that generally covers her face, wearing a plain, tattered, gown-like garment. The Dragger's most striking feature is her gaping maw, slit from ear to ear, filled with a mangled mess of sharp teeth, which she reveals when she is about to kill someone. The Dragger exists to hunt and to kill.

    You are the Wolf Urban Legend.

    Class: Spirit
    Group(s): N/A

    Yet nobody knows exactly where your power lies

    Your Life Is Your Own!


    I understand the basic idea of Forum Mafia is to find wolfy people and lynch them. I understand that to many, spending a day's vote on a mechanic rather than a wolfhunt seems wasteful, annoying, and possibly even un-fun.

    However.

    Look at this bitch.


    She's not going to go away by ignoring her. She's not benign. She's not going to be irrelevant. Sandbagging the problem until some unspecified time in the future is not going to benefit Town. She must be removed, and immediately, for two main reasons.

    1) She's an evil ravenous undead horror explicitly aligned with wolf team. That means she's not going to do anything other than help the wolves. Exactly how, we may not know - but it should simply be implicitly obvious that the existence of this mechanic is exclusively wolf-sided. No good can come from it.

    2) The process of wolfhunting via the lynch mechanic becomes increasingly important over time. Early Day phases in a mash the votes fly around fast and furious, and land almost randomly. Nobody can read every post in a 50-player mash the fist couple of Days, and it's almost impossible to gain any benefit or information from an early Day phase VCA. There's just too much information and signal noise for it to mean much. Later Days, however, it's essential to have good information available on player votes and movements in order to catch wolves. It's wot we do. If you sandbag this problem until it grows, the waste generated by waiting to lynch it grows exponentially. Yes, it's a wasted lynch - but the opportunity cost on Day 2 is dramatically smaller than it would be on Day 4 or 5 or later.


    I get you want to catch a wolf.

    I get you want to have your reads validated, and this may feel like a bit of a cop-out.

    But we gotta take care of this problem, because it only gets worse over time.
  25. Nominating Agent Cooper ( Boquise) and t om for...

    Nominating @Agent Cooper ( @Boquise) and @t om for Best Neutral Performance in Throne Mash!

    The scene: Agent Cooper is posting pretty smoothly... when suddenly he's semi-outed from some mechanical thing and is swiftly going down!! Along comes a joust event, a 1v1 where the winner gets to choose between killing the loser and a prize, but you can't kill if you've won in the event before...

    Agent Cooper and Tom enter the joust event together as a 1v1, really going at each other!!! While Agent Cooper is posting as fast as he can, t om ever so slightly throws, with the intense battle culminating in Agent Cooper's victory!! He returns to the thread, desolate that he's outed but still believing that he can at least take t om down with him when there's a sudden realization in the thread... Agent Cooper can't kill due to having won before!!!

    The results of the distancing helps t om, already in a solid position, well on his way to F3!!

    Some fun posts around Agent Cooper's "realization":

  26. Nominating @SmartBomb...

    Nominating @SmartBomb ( @Fanciful Fairy ) for Best Mechanics/Strategical Player!

    As seen in the A Very Mafia Universe Halloween Mash, aside from SmartBomb's night actions strategizing and scheming, he was also almost spot-on in determining the true players behind quite a lot of alt accounts!! He helped use this to the advantage of the mafia, particularly in the hunting and eliminating of PRs!!!
  27. Nominating @The Dragger...

    Nominating @The Dragger for Best Replacement Performance in Mob Psycho 100!

    After Saitama had been utterly useless 0-posting on day 1, The Dragger's sub-in struck true fear into the hearts of town!! Although she wasn't able to post on day 2 for some reason, she more than made up for it by engaging in some spectacular w/w theatre with me, causing utter chaos in a vital ITA session while hard distancing!!! While her posts were few, every post was strategically made to advance the mafia wincon!!
  28. Nominating @Boquise...

    Nominating @Boquise for Best Replacement Performance/Player in Mob Psycho 100!

    As mafia, Boq subbed into a spot that was truly entrenched into the PoE and put in a ton of effort into posting his way out of that position!! Even after getting out of the PoE through interactions with a dead partner, he didn't let up and continued pressing on, using his smooth posting to slip through town suspicion while actively pushing the mafia agenda!!!

    Just some really solid play overall, seeding the thread with his mafia presence!!
  29. Nominating Wisdom for Best Rookie! Wisdom blew...

    Nominating @Wisdom for Best Rookie!

    Wisdom blew into the mafia scene as a pretty chill player; their post tend to emanate a sort of clearness that makes you want to go jam with them!! Their cool-headed logical approach to the game gives the thread a calming presence and they're just pretty relaxing to play with! My first experience with Wisdom was in Still Lovesick, where they just blew in to the game like a fresh breath of wind and swiftly became exceedingly obvious town, was fun bouncing with them!!

    Not part of the nomination: happy birthday!!!
  30. Nominating hollowkatt for Best Rookie! Having...

    Nominating @hollowkatt for Best Rookie!

    Having first started playing here in August, he jumped headfirst into his first game here and immediately brought a ton of enthusiasm into the game!! His genuine desire to dig into the game as well as overall willingness to learn more about playing mafia was overall very hype!! While I've only seen in a couple of games so far, hoping to see him around more in the future!!!
  31. Nominating GeneralHankerchief for Best Flavor...

    Nominating @GeneralHankerchief for Best Flavor Writer in S6G10: The Mafia Convention and S6 Finale: The Billion-Dollar Pogo-Stick Race!

    Flavour for both games were simply overall rather entertaining stories to read!

    Highlights from the Mafia Convention include:

    • A drab, underwhelming hotel,
    • Interchange monstrosities
    • Increasingly amusing escape attempts
    • Dreary decaying decapitated heads!


    Highlights from the Billion-Dollar Pogo Stick Race include:
    • Controversial pogo-stick racing history
    • The nefarious Red Valkyries group
    • Extreme pogoing through sandstorm and firefight
    • A mysterious resurrection!
  32. Nominating roro__b for Best Flavor Writer in...

    Nominating @roro__b for Best Flavor Writer in Throne Mash!

    Roro put his all into the flavour for the game, which was intricately linked throughout all the game mechanics... roles, events, deaths, everything!!! The game wouldn't have had the depth in flavour without it; lore and backstories were well thought out for each character in the game, even with hints of secrets hidden away in the flavour about certain game mechanics!! Basically all of the flavour about the kingdom, its King's Sons (and Evil Sons!), King Mad, Witches, and all its residents heavily influenced/were influenced by roles in the game in a really cool way! Besides that, the end flavour for each lynch/death was also wonderful!!

    The role pms were all here for those interested in taking a look!!!
  33. Nominating Mantichora for Best Flavor Writer,...

    Nominating @Mantichora for Best Flavor Writer, particularly for Staff Party and A Very Mafia Universe Halloween!

    The creativity of the flavour really speaks for itself, so here are a few fun snippets:

  34. Nominating Mob Psycho 100 ( ONE, Beck + LordQuas)...

    Nominating Mob Psycho 100 ( @ONE, @Beck + @LordQuas) for Best Mash!

    This mash was based off the flavour of the anime Mob Psycho 100 and was a cool and interesting game!!! Each role and flavour accompanying them clearly had a lot of thought put into them and resulted in some fun roles/mechanics such as mor_tilt's Village Con Artist role and delayed roles like Mantichora's Mob role!! My favourite was the lost wolf role and its way of communicating with the mafia through Discord which put a sweet twist on the normal "lost wolf" role!!

    Aside from that, there were also cool events (two truths one lie was cool to see in postgame!), the Dragger chaos, and some surprising elements popping up in later days which kept the game surprisingly close!!!

    Afterwards I went and watched the anime because of the game; was even cooler in retrospect!!

There were also townplayers outside of all of this. Game seemed to be over for town pretty early, with the three other factions being very strong, and townplayers kept getting picked off. Dyachei, Logic and Grant in particular, was a trio that in some way managed to pull of some great plays, Grant used his abilities to their fullest extent, nailed jousts and events to get prizes and used them the best way possible. Dya and Logic were both pretty much vanilla for the last days. In F7 game was still at 3(town)-2-1-1, but with some help from the other factions it ended in a F3 and a (beforhand) really unexpected town win

    Regarding a few other points that were brought up: that's mostly addressed with the 50-post max limit, outside of EoD!!!


    When you have 50 posts max, there's only so much spamming you can do before being unable to continue posting!! It tends to force people to measure out their posts more with players frequently stopping some posts before 50 in order to conserve posts if they find the need, occasionally with playstyles that do spam and then unexpectedly run out before they mean to! As for keeping the thread productive... that still does depend on the players/what they do with the tone of the game!


    The aforementioned "spamming playstyle" is pretty common outside of light games... otherwise, can't think of others at the moment?


    Additionally, for non-light games one could say that the "threadsitting" playstyle is somewhat common, which is what it sounds like: sitting in the thread for hours on end, using hundreds of posts interacting with people in real time!! A bit more difficult to do when you only have 50 posts to play with!

    Decade of the Database!

    Decade of the Database!
    2020: new decade, new delights... new database!

    Database Status: A quick recap

    In 2019, Makaze completed the automation portion of the current database, mass importing all games from the old database and ensuring that new automated games would be input upon completion! Now with over 2000 game files, it's a lot of information! However, if you've played on MU and looked at your player data, you'd likely be correct in thinking that your stats aren't quite right!! So...

    What else needs to be done?


    With the automated portion of the database mostly completed, we're down to a lot of manual editing which can't be carried out by robots, hence Makaze's limited further involvement! Now the main issue remaining is ensuring database accuracy; there's a lot of minor stuff for players and games that need some tidying up!! A few examples of manual tasks include:

    • Adding information such as roles, role actions, game/phase ends, etc.
    • Ensuring each player exists as only one instance with correct public alt attribution
    • Correcting errors such as rerands
    • Deleting "false" games - test games, mash events, etc.
    • Adding most manual games (mashes!)

    As you can see, quite a bit of stuff! That being said, the question left is...

    How can YOU help?

    We need people who care about restoring the database!! Regardless of if you just have a few minutes to check over the accuracy of a game or two or have a while to hack away at inputting a mash, any help is appreciated!!!

    If you've got the drive and some time to help out, contact myself or @ladd for further details and we'll get you started!!

    The goal is to have the database accurately up to date by the end of 2020; consider this an MU new year's resolution!

    Why "Decade of the Database" and not Year, if that's the goal?

    This will be an ongoing project! The initial push this year is to get the database up to speed, which will take a massive effort!! Afterwards, new games will still need a human eye in order to ensure accuracy... there simply won't be a few years of backlog to work through anymore, so if you're interested in helping to maintain it afterwards, any help is welcome!!

    Also, alliteration!

    I literally am not!!!

    Think about it: why would I ever counterclaim, knowing that you suspect me?

    It makes a lot more sense for Visor to rely on your vote here as mafia!!!!

    Based off this game alone, I'd lynch you. Based off history, I want to fear lynch Visor
    What?

    Seriously, this is how I look at the game from when I'm a cop; if you're town, go with history, and also know that I don't think I've ever counterclaimed someone as mafia in a turbo - I just do the powerwolfing stuff!!!
