    Mission statement
    The mission of the Mafia Championship is to establish close bonds and connections between mafia communities. We believe that everyone benefits from learning more about other communities, and it has even proven to be powerful in terms of revitalizing dying communities that were slowly losing their passion for the game. Furthermore, it has spawned countless crossover games, with many people visiting and playing on each other's sites.

    Format
    Each season, the tournament host decides on a fairly balanced and competitive format/setup, and all games that season follow that same format. Every season features a brand new format in the spirit of fairness, since the various participating communities are used to very different types of setups.

    Common for all seasons is that the tournament host first divides the representatives up into several qualifying games, having them play in one qualifier each. After each qualifier, the participating representatives themselves cast their votes for who they think deserve to advance to that season's finale game. Usually, there is also a wildcard system in place for each season, which allows for non-advanced players to still be able to play in the finale, though the specifics of this system varies.

    Finally, the finale game is played, and the players once again cast their votes, this time to determine who earns the title of The Internet's Best Forum Mafia Player.

    Season 1 (2013-2014)
    This season was won by DWetzel, hailing from Two Plus Two. As a reward, he got the chance to submit questions to Dmitry Davidoff, who created the mafia game back in 1986.

    Runner-ups were The Moocher (Two Plus Two), corycurren (Walter Football), jcohen (Part Time Poker) and Thingyman (PokerNet).

    The season featured a ~25-player semi-open setup with possible roles being listed in OP.

    45+ different communities and 100+ representatives participated. Larger communities were allowed more representatives.

    Season 2 (2015)
    This season was won by coolkid from MafiaManiac.

    Runner-ups were Ratchet (One Piece Bay) and soah (Two Plus Two).

    The format for Season 2 was a 13-player vanilla open setup w/ 1 cop.

    Many new communities were added to the series, and it ended up featuring 70 communities (and 70 representatives).

    Unlike Season 1, this season didn't allow larger communities to have multiple representatives, and it also made an effort to not include players that had previously played with each other in the same qualifier.

    Season 3 (2016)
    This season featured 136 different communities, setting a new record, and doubling the number of communities that had been represented up until that point throughout Season 1 and Season 2, going from 80 to 160.

    This season was won by Whiskeyjack from westeros.

    Runner-ups were (in order of 2nd to 5th) wvw-jelte (Hattrick.org), faZ (NADotA), Sorian (NeoGAF) and Roman (Jesus Toast Mafia).

    For Season 3, an entirely new custom designed setup was created: Matrix12. The setup is inspired by the Matrix6 format originally designed by Cogito Ergo Sum.

    Similar to Season 2, this season only allowed each community to send one representative each, regardless of the size of the community. Also, for the first time ever, representatives were able to choose between 36/12 or 72/24 phases.

    For the first time ever this season featured no power roles; A pure 15-man Mountainous setup was used (3 Mafia Goons vs. 12 Vanilla Townies).
