    Season 3: General Chat (Information, Banter, Confirmations)

    THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON 3: GENERAL CHAT

    Welcome to yet another season of the Mafia Championship!

    This all started in 2013 with what was meant to be just one single fun game featuring a few different communities, and it has since then snowballed into a huge annual event. I'm very thankful to everyone who has ever helped me out and to all those who have participated. As many will attest to, this has proven to be more than just a tournament; It's been a real bonding experience (having even resulted in 3 romantic relationships), so much so that we finally decided last year we needed a site to bring us all together. And thus Mafia Universe was born.

    I encourage everyone, spectators and representatives alike, to chat freely in this thread. Banter away!

    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

    The setup used for Season 3 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!

    Read more about the setup here.

    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). If a majority lynch ends the day early, thereby shifting the schedule, a moderator will step in to ensure that the next day phase ends at an appropriate time.

    I want to spectate!

    Awesome, you most certainly can.

    A private thread will be made for each game. Just PM this account to request access to this thread (dead players are automatically added to it as well). Note that these threads are unspoiled.

    You can also join our community chat on Skype (130+ ppl), which will serve as a spectator chat throughout the Championship. This chat is always a ton of fun, so I really hope you'll consider joining it. Get an invite by simply adding me on Skype: thingyman

    Four new communities to the series have already expressed interest: Giraffe Boards, 1FF, No Goblins Allowed, and PloungeMafia (a subreddit).

    Hello.

    We at Feed the Beast are very excited to be invited. The event sounds really intriguing. At least I can gather that I am, so I went ahead and nominated myself! I'll probably be hanging around in the games section of the forum trying to hone my skills once I have the time.

    Good luck everyone else!

    As always, I'm obligated to ask about hydras. Would it be possible to send two reps inhabiting the same playerslot?

    Also, is there a list of invited sites anywhere?

    Also also, are there ever gonna be 72-hour day phase Championship Games? I know my site isn't the only one where that's standard. 36-hour phases with hundreds of posts borders on unmanageable for most of our players. (This was already discussed on Skype, but if people not there wanted to weigh in I'm putting it here as well.)

    1) I am often asked about this. And once the spots are settled for this season, I will start asking sites if they'd like to participate in a separate hydra-based event.

    2) No. Or well, not a public list. I feel it's best to not reveal the invited sites until they've accepted. I'm still sending out invites (about 30 sites to go now...), but tomorrow I'll start updating OP with those who've accepted so far.

    3) I welcome more thoughts on this. I am open to having some of the Qualifying games be 48/24 or 72/24 games, but the players would then need to be fine with switching to 36/12 for the finale. I'd like to avoid the unfortunate situation of finalists bailing out on the finale, since I feel that detracts from the meaning of it :/

    1) Awesome. I know there are people on my site excited about such a possibility.

    2) Having a full list would guard against the situation where a user goes "oh, I don't see [some site I know about] there; maybe I should tell Thingy to invite them?" but doesn't know whether that's because that site refused, or because you weren't aware of that community. Probably doesn't matter too much either way.

    3) I can definitely understand the limitations of having to fit it in with the faster-paced finale. It might be worth looking into holding an entirely separate track of 72/24 championship games?

    2) You're very right, and I initially wanted to include the list for that purpose to make sure the season wasn't missing out on any good communities, but I felt that listing a site that hadn't even accepted yet and might say no might not be appropriate.

    2) I'm not sure how a list of "these sites have declined, please do not bug them" is inappropriate?

    I don't think he was saying that listing communities that declined was inappropriate, but communities who haven't given a decision yet, accepting or denying, would be to an extent. No communities have done either yet as far as we know, hence why none are listed in either category.
    I was a leek once.

    Ah, I see. Carry on then.

  20. ISO #20
    Longer gamedays doesn't solve the post count issue because most players just keep posting about the same amount each (real life) day. In Season 1 there was a cap of 100 posts per player per gameday which kept things under control, but then the cap was done away with for games 3 and 4 and the post counts doubled in those games. (4900 posts, 4100, 9700, 7400, in each game respectively, with 25 starting players, including the postgame discussion because I'm too lazy to look more closely).

  21. ISO #21
    Oh, and 12,000 posts in the Finale game. Ouch.

    I feel like part of the reason the postcounts are so high is because people go in with the expectation of a high posting rate (especially since that's spelled out in the invitations / OP / whatever, that you should be ready for 500-1000 posts/day or whatever it is).
    If a 72/24 game is framed as slower paced to begin with, I could definitely see that affecting how frequently people feel the need to be posting.

    IMO it's worth investigating, at least, but maybe not in a main-track Championship game.

    I think a lot of the reason is that the invitees are the best from their sites, and a large part of success in this game is just spending more time on it than others, so you end up with mostly people who have a lot of free time and motivation.

    That still only explains the volumes from players whose site meta involves hundreds of posts per real-life day (and the ones that adapt to changing environments quickly, I suppose). Even our spammiest players aren't going to reach that level of post frequency, and I'd wager it's the same for more than a few other sites.

    As a sidenote: imo being able to spend high amounts of time on the game doesn't mean much when the amount of information to sift through is completely elastic. Part of the benefit of having large amounts of free time when playing mafia is being able to go over past posts, and that's much harder when there are literally thousands to sift through.

    It's a solid article, and probably one that champions be encouraged to read. I'll probably reread it tomorrow when I'm less tired, but I definitely appreciate it.

    Why was it that the post-per-player-per-day cap was lifted?

    If I may ask, did you send an invite to a site called Xtratime.org? Or you didnt because of registration obstacles? (changed serves past week lead to some issues, no new members during that time I think).


    I found out about this peculiar championship through a site you sent invite to, called Juventuz.org. I'm a long term member of both (and played mafia in both), but was corious if only one of them got invite.

    I have not stumbled upon that community. Some sites are near impossible for me to find because their forums are behind registration walls, meaning they can't be googled.

    I will definitely take a look at them, thank you very much

    I'm from here:

    Well, actually I play in polish with other people but I'll play in this tournament as a representative of the site above.

    I read "Game 1" to assess the skill-level of the players and it's quite high, similar to what I usually play. I didn't look at who is mafia and who isn't. I was only suspicious of you (Zaccinio) at the beginning when you were asking too many questions which in my opinion pushes the obligation of creating actual content to the person answering so it's very convenient to ask questions when you're mafia. But besides that you played really well. I will soon read other games, I hope it will be interesting.

    Heyo! I'm here from The Bell Tree (animal crossing forums are the most likely mafia forums amiright). Just wanted to say what you've got going is very solid Thingy - the competition is a great idea and the forums themselves look very put together!

    Ahhh gotcha, I forgot about that potential hurdle for searching the site. If you wanna check out or invite players of that forum, here's a link (accessible only when you register): http://www.xtratime.org/forum/437-xt-mafia/

    I take there isnt so many football forums who play this game (even if I'm member of two who do).
