    Oh, benneh.

    You and Bankertin can still get my heart racing just at the sight of either of you.

    okay i'm nominating @neopest for Best Scum Performance in Constellations Team Mafia

    she completely posted our slot/team 'clear' with the days she was in game - she was also super supportive/helpful to our team (me/illario/marry) in guiding us to a win, even writing some of illario's lines in LYLO and coaching me not to bus in a situation that probably led us to a victory. she'd also posted so well d2 that after getting heat d1, i didn't have to worry about it the next time i subbed in. just generally played amazingly.

    nominating alexa for best overall player.

    she's legitimately a boon to whatever team she rands onto. as a wolf, she has already quite a few receipts, such as constellations team mafia and mountain climbing, and is known for being high volume and being able to clear herself easily. however, for as good of a wolf she may be, there's no understating how valuable she is as a villager as well. in a majority of village games i've seen from her, she consistently steers the game in a beneficial direction for the village, such as anni 2021, sf2, and pokemon unova mash. she has near unmatched dedication to games as both alignments and almost always proves to be a massive thorn in the side to whatever team she's opposite to.

    I don't think it's a secret for most of you that my track record in reading Hally has been rather … well … awful thus far in our games. I did have one specific game where I recognized Hally was a villager and confidently (and happily!) let the world know. They flipped wolf. After our Syndicate game together and then Anni (both of which saw me find Hally's eod wolfy and press there) I wanted to make a concentrated effort to finally read that slot correctly.

    I spent some time today combing through recent-ish games this year of Hally's. The wolf game on the Org website, the Vig game over on the Syndicate one, and all sorts of mashes/smaller games through MU as well. Rocks fall, Anni, Homestuck, CoV, etc. You get the picture. All in all there were 16 different games I pulled isos from. I then went and ran through the isos extracting all the day one posts from the first half of the day, labeled them as W or V, and ran them through a bit of a homemade database that would do a few different things for me. One of the things was to make a word cloud which would count the number of times each word was used in these isos and make the word larger the more frequently it was used. For example:





    Anyways, I separated the wolf isos from the villa isos and then removed things like articles (a, the, in, an, etc) as well as player names as those aren't really super relevant to our investigation and cross referenced them to see if anything word usage stood out as alignment indicative in the top 10 most common words. While there were small word choices favored it didn't seem super significant. What WAS significant were two other things:

    One: While specific word choices weren't very telling I did notice a definitely trend of elegance in the wolf isos. The words may change but the idea remained the same. In wolf ISOs Hally had a habit of using larger, more elegant words whereas in the villa ISOs Hally just talked more casually. I'll call these Posts Exceedingly Elegant as we continue.

    Two: Villager isos were much more full of observational posts rather than inquisitive ones. The wolf iso was full of open ended questions requesting elaboration. Not just directly to a specific player but also towards the thread at large asking if it saw what Hally was seeing. Meanwhile the villager iso was full of more pointed statement. It was telling the thread what Hally was seeing and making sure everyone understood. The village iso had a higher frequency – by a significant margin – of Posts Of Observation.


    Again, I really want to get this right so I didn't stop there. Science isn't science until you write it down after all. I went ahead and charted the percentage of posts as a villager and as a wolf for both posts containing an elegant word and posts making observations. It's a bit crude but here's the quick jot down I made to visualize it:





    So I wanted to see how this one was shaping up. Remember, these were all taken from the first half of day one isos which we've made it past here. I went ahead and ran through Hally's iso from this game, plotted the elegance and observational percentages on the chart, and ran the following equation to try and determine the exact percentage chance Hally has at being a wolf:

    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here) = the mathematical chance of Hally being a villager here (do 1-this for wolf obv).

    Which looks something like this:


    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here)

    Or written differently

    i am also gonna nominate Lordquas for best wolf performance in a mash for Pokemon mash. Very well played game, basically never suspected and villa read. Went to f3 with a clear and won



    and gonna nominate the whole blue team for best wolf team performance in a mash for Pokemon Mash. They had a bunch of deep wolves who ~never got suspected and would have prob endgamed as well if they were not shot from the other wolf team. Really good team interactions as well making the game very very hard to solve

  9. ISO #359
    Since I am at it I am also gonna nominate MacDougal for best villager overall. Amazing WIM, will re read the game 20 times if needed, aussie, almost always nked early for the FEAR and very good at getting his (often correct) wolfreads lunched

  10. ISO #360
    and Thunal for most improved player. Champ finalist after endgaming in quals as a wolf and playing an amazing villa game in the semifinals; game after endgamed as a wolf in a tough playerlist and played extremely well in anni. Just very good as both alignments

    you can argue that he says this as an alignment, but why? like, he is saying both he is a good turtle and to trust him. an alignment would know they're good or bad, and therefore not even think to call themselves good and tell people to trust him. therefore, wiml is lock 3p

    nominate Jmurder3 for best replacement performance.

    In the Pokemon Unova mash, he replaced in for a slot on night 1 that everyone assumed was mafia and was able to turn the thread around on his slot and ended up living for 4-5 days contributing to the work of the village.

    +1 to Thunal nom. Very dedicated player and willing to listen and consider opinions on how to play that aren't her own. Also, the amount of effort she puts into improving her game from game to game is intense.

    Nominating the town team in the game Anime World 2: Triple Threat for Best Town Performance - Group (Mash).

    In this game, town collectively yeeted or killed both scum parties almost every night. It took them a while to figure out the last wolf who was spewed “town” by a tailored townie, but through effort and careful analysis they accomplished the win in a very difficult bastard set up.

    Nominating @stormslyde for Best use of a power role in Anime World 2: Triple threat

    He randed a rather complicated and meme-ish role, one of those that could be really awesome if you play it right, or really $%#!ty if you dont know what you are doing.
    The player played the long game by patiently marking two PoE players, if he died, their alignments would be outed. He orchestrated a plan to get killed close to mylo to clear or redcheck those two players. Both were town! It helped narrowing the PoE further and put the last wolf under scope who had deep wolf with a fake yet very convincing night action.

    This player could have gone for the alternative and get killed to become a haunted night vigilante but instead he took one for the team and cleared two players close to end game, for this i nominate him.

    Since some people obviously don't know this, even though it should be BASIC COMMON SENSE, I guess i have to point it out. if you are PR, and are about to be misyeeted, YOU NEED TO CLAIM. You need to claim with at least 45 seconds, preferably 1 minute left so that people have time to refresh and unvote you. If you claim at 30 seconds, if you claim at 15 seconds, if you don't claim at all, YOU WILL BE MISYEETED. PR staying alive is extremely important for town. There was a post on the general mafia forum about win rates when PR is yeeted D1 in turbos and its 1/14 or some $%#!.

    I'm not going to call this gamethrowing, because some new players might not understand how important PR is to a setup, and others come from sites where you can't claim as PR. But please, for the love of god, claim if you're being killed. Thank you.

    Copypasta over.

    Yet King Bowser is just as stubborn and insists the kitty goes in his pocket, despite numerous failed attempts.

    In the end, kitty was never pocketed. Did not survive the process, but left Bowser bloody and shredded and looking quite the fool.

    Then everyone else in town is like, dude, Bowser, what happened to your faaaaaace. And your cat.

    I uh... cut myself shaving. I'm still totally townie, honest.

    Player who did exceedingly well in a specific game as town. Include the game with your nomination.

    dunya for Congress of Vienna
    Nominated by: Apoc
    Seconded by: Hally
    It is Day 2.

    There are 19 players alive.

    5 wolves. 1 lost wolf. 1 3P.

    ITAs are happening.

    And this is Dunya's shot list. 6/8 anti-town. This means her town list is 10/11 (1 lost wolf).

    All 5 pack wolves are on this list...oh and one of them is currently being mistakenly peeked villager...but its role madness...so she adds them anyway!


    Quote Originally Posted by dunya (#6048)

    so people i could possibly shoot are:

    Alison (the doc claim...)
    Apogee (the nook thing was crazy yea, but is there 3p potential?)
    c4e5g3d5 (i disagree with the assessment that w!c4 would struggle with tmi like the accusations say)
    Chloe (everyone shielding her claims)
    Fatmo (idk what to say here, i have a note to iso him he's in my poe because i have no reason for him not to be in my poe)
    Master Radishes (the "green check")
    staypositivefriend (something just not vibing completely with me)
    Timsup2nothin (something exaggerated about how he handled hally imo)
    Easy nom


    Alison for Congress of Vienna
    Nominated by: vanity.
    Seconded by: Hally
    alison was one of the main driving forces of killing wolves in the game. not only did she help kill three wolves early on, she completely slayed in the endgame where she correctly cased the remaining wolves for mostly correct reasons and just did not let up on them at all. just an absolutely brilliant game from her and a great display of powervillaging at its finest.


    Macdougall (as Scyther) for Clue(do) Mafia
    Nominated by: Guillotina
    Seconded by: Hally
    He correctly identified three out of four mafia players on Day 1 and despite him being night killed early, his reads served as an important tool for town to brutally stomp the mafia party.


    Player who did exceedingly well in a specific game as town. Include the game with your nomination.

    fanmail for Throne Mash II
    Nominated by: Viggorous
    Seconded by: Inawordyes
    Village may have lost this game, but without fanmail it would have been a stomp instead of fairly close.

    He had great reads, he managed to clear himself by posting well and while also slaying wolves en masse.

    He was a beast in ITAs, killing two wolves and missing the third shot which was on wolf KP.

    Late game he was given a day vig through a wish granter, he used this to shoot (and thus out) a deep wolf who wasn't in anybody's immediate PoE.

    He simply played amazingly well, and it's undoubtedly one of the best (if not the best) performances I have seen from anyone in a long while.


    Sunbae (as Haru Okumura) for Fourth Annual B4ST4RD Mash - Isekai
    Nominated by: SilverKeith
    Seconded by: Mantichora
    In the 5 years I've been on this site I've never made a nomination but Haru killed it so much in this game that she deserves to be nominated at exactly 24 hours and a minute after the game ended.

    Haru started the game pretty under the radar, albeit with some decent reads. By the end of D3 tho, she had a hand in the fall of both OwO and Vanity, two of our best players on the wolfteam, by virtue of pushing OwO to death, and being the person to start a shot train at Vanity at ITAs.

    Come N3, we thought about killing Haru, but ultimately decided not to, because people would look for wolf KP, and Haru might fit that spot, so we decided to kill people who were either mechclear or had good roles. Big mistake.

    Start of D4, wolves are close to sealing the deal, at 4-11, with the catch that we had 3 ppl on the wolfteam who could use KP. ITAs are about to start, and Haru was receiving so much heat that it was agreed she had to make the first shot. And she made the shot that would win town the game. Not only she shot Allund, the wolf dayvig who was somewhat going under people's radar, but immediately after that, she encouraged people to shot me, the other direct wolf KP, when I was considered by most people a very likely villager, and slammed down a bunch of extremely solid arguments on why I was scum.

    But there's still more. Inmediatly after she shot the wolf dayvig, we used an ability from a dead mafia that we (both the wolves and townies who read the role) thought would convert a townie into a wolf after a period of time. So, instead of shutting up and being quietly converted to the wolfteam for an easy win, she posts this:

    Quote Originally Posted by Haru Okumura (#20670)

    Dear Lissa,

    We have a problem. In the gacha Triple Haven rolled a 99. Shortly after I received a gift that activated. Based on the reveal of Triple Haven I am almost positive that it is from Triple Haven's role. I have unlocked new abilities and have become a Magical Girl. Triple Haven's role reveal says that players who accept your invitation will succumb to despair eventually and be transformed into a witch. I take this to mean that I will be converted to the mafia faction at an undisclosed time in the future.

    Based on math my role is often a 45% day vigilante. I am currently town and am supposed to try and help town win. If I converted to a mafia 45% day vigilante I believe the mafia are going to win. I am impossible to suspect at this time and will get to kill any town I want tomorrow to lock up the game if I convert. I could sit here and be quiet and take my near certain victory in that way but I have poured my soul into the town this game and want to win as town. Not get some cheap asterisk win by converting at the end game.

    I think the correct play is for you to kill me. You. A peeked, clear town that cannot get suspicion put on them for the shot. That way poe town and mafia have to shoot into themselves. I say this with full knowledge that it will undo any positive actions I've done this game if I am incorrect. I say this knowing that if I ever play here again I'll be met with copy pastas of this until I put out a halfhearted laugh and pretend to take it on the chin. Flooded messages of game throwing will occur but it is my desire that others factor in the amount of thought I've given this since it happened hours ago. So far this game I've ignored what people would say if I were wrong and followed my magical girl heart and it's lead to correct shots on OwO, Vanity and Allund. None of them were under heavy suspicion when I fired. I must go out believing in myself in the same way.

    If this ends the game I know we were so outnumbered that it wouldn't have mattered. If the game is close then losing me is salvageable yet being converted is a disaster. If the game is heavily in our favor then it does not matter and I trust in the town to finish strong.

    I think Scumpaltine should boost you and you should shoot me. I will flip town with some convoluted math resulting in a 45% kill every day phase. I still think it's correct.

    I hope you remember Haru in death as she lived. Recklessly firing from the hip and yoloing her way to a potential grave.

    Yours truly,
    Haru Okumura
    Phantom Thief

    PS: let me fire one last shot before I go
    If sacrificing yourself for the sake of the village isn't the most villagery thing ever then I don't know what it is. But Haru's tale doesn't even end there. Village decided to rely on a role that had a chance of preventing the possible conversion, so they decided to go for that so that Haru doesn't have to out. The days pass and the game gets in a pretty weird mechanical situation that it's a bit hard to explain, but every alive player is either mech cleared or peeked... including the last wolf, a godfather. The only player who makes sense as the last wolf at the village's eye, is Haru trough being converted. And while Haru wasn't converted, mechanically the correct play was to yeet her.

    And yes, Haru was yeeted, so this might possibly be the only nomination for this category towards a townie who was eliminated. But Haru didn't go down easily, because she spent every moment from that phase solving the game, in a votecount that shows just how much $%#!ing WIM she poured into the game.


    Hornet for Homestuck Mash
    Nominated by: Bunnelby

    Nominated by: Guillotina
    Seconded by: Insaner
    The player was the main contributor in finding, casing and leading town to eliminate the last three scum, always keeping a logical and cold head against a very experienced and skillful scum team, who tried everything to discredit Kurososaki Ichigo to no avail, including bit not limited to a fake town reveal.


    alexa for Mafia Universe Anniversary 2021
    Nominated by: GeneralHankerchief
    Seconded by: Hally
    I'm going to use the same nomination paragraph for each, which is appropriate since alexa's and TSP's fates were pretty heavily linked in this game anyway. I believe this was both of their first mashes ever, and boy, did they jump into the deep end, displaying incredible WIM and co-leading the village throughout Anni, which is double to triple the size of your normal mash. They underwent the full mash experience: watching as the people they trusted died around them, trying to corral the village and keep the shots lists accurate, placing in events, and weathering the emotional ups and downs that endgaming in a mash like this provides. Notably, both continued to co-lead the village in the later stages of the game when mech solving became paramount, despite neither of them being mechanically clear for most of the game (TSP did late on, alexa never did). They trusted each other, they relied on each other, the passed off tree stump status to each other, they never wavered, and they dealt with all the bull$%#! while driving the town relentlessly onward to to their goal. It's only fitting that I should nominate them together, and it's going to be a bastard to judge them separately when I have to vote for one (but not the other) in six months.

They underwent the full mash experience: watching as the people they trusted died around them, trying to corral the village and keep the shots lists accurate, placing in events, and weathering the emotional ups and downs that endgaming in a mash like this provides. Notably, both continued to co-lead the village in the later stages of the game when mech solving became paramount, despite neither of them being mechanically clear for most of the game (TSP did late on, alexa never did). They trusted each other, they relied on each other, the passed off tree stump status to each other, they never wavered, and they dealt with all the bull$%#! while driving the town relentlessly onward to to their goal. It's only fitting that I should nominate them together, and it's going to be a bastard to judge them separately when I have to vote for one (but not the other) in six months.

    Chloe for Congress of Vienna
    Nominated by: c4e5g3d5
    Seconded by: Hally
    The great thing about 3ps is that you have a whole extra faction reading you. For this game, that meant Chloe had to fool a whole 6 extra players.

    Holy $%#!.

    3p and WIM are two things you rarely see in the same sentence, let alone place. Chloe brought more WIM than most of the townies. It would've been an amazing game she played from any alignment, and that it came from a 3p with her partner caught D1 is mind-boggling.


    Ranmilia for Congress of Vienna
    Nominated by: Alison
    Seconded by: Hally
    Ranmilia and Apogee showed immense fighting spirit and played optimally up until the very end, using every trick in the book to try to scrape out a win even when everyone else was mech confirmed. Ballsy plays like Ranmilia's scum claim and the two of them concocting an entirely fictitious 3P faction to make town fear and doubt their own conclusions are excellent mafia play and should be rewarded.

    Sett for Grand Idea Mafia
    Nominated by: Guillotina
    Seconded by: Garden Gnome
    He got a ROLE with a next-to impossible win condition as 3P and still managed to manipulate both town and mafia to obtain it, despite every town leader advocating to not help him and trying to make him lose. To add to its difficulty, Sett had claimed his alignment on Day 1 and on Day 2, THREATENED town to hold the game hostage.


    Chelsea for OPEN WORLD 1.2
    Nominated by: Guillotina
    Seconded by: YOLOSWAG
    Imagine scum purposely and permanently role vanillalizing herself, to specialize in item usage only, a very expensive branch in the game.
    To put everything in perspective, most roles where inexpensive and everyone could buy two per game and to top it all, roles were public knowledge for all.

    Instead Chelsea bought a bundle with something she very well knew would perma-vanillalize her and that would only let her use items that were unknown to everyone. She took the risk and ripped the hidden rewards that those items gave her. Not only that, she was very strategic about the use of those items planning out actions with her teammates and ended up carrying a widely scum read teammate to the final day to win by parity to town, by manipulating town into considering alternative PoEs, a town that were on their tail all game.

    It was game that truly tested her openwolf prowess and she didn't disappoint.


    katze for DragonVale Mafia: Roar of the Rift
    Nominated by: Hally
    Seconded by: Hornet
    on the heals of 2500 posting and winning as a wolf in a mash on their homesite FoL, katze put in another really impressive performance here. wolves got lunched D1/D2 and katze found themself in the PoE in midgame (along with their only living teammate), but they kept fighting against a town full of strong villagers and ended up winning easily in F3 after being super villagery and posting 1500 times. really impressive game!

    Nominated by: alexa

    she completely posted our slot/team 'clear' with the days she was in game - she was also super supportive/helpful to our team (me/illario/marry) in guiding us to a win, even writing some of illario's lines in LYLO and coaching me not to bus in a situation that probably led us to a victory. she'd also posted so well d2 that after getting heat d1, i didn't have to worry about it the next time i subbed in. just generally played amazingly.

    Ephemeral for Baldur's Gate II Mish-Mash
    Nominated by: nutella
    Seconded by: Mistyx
    Eph was immediately and consistently a strong presence in wolf chat, strategizing and coordinating night actions as well as keeping the team motivated. Facing an incredibly strong village team, the wolves were on the backfoot pretty much from the beginning and suffered a continuous series of soulcrushing blows -- and yet Eph, while disheartened, didn't show it. He stayed positive and motivated, doing everything in his power to maintain the townreads he was getting in the thread as one of the team's deepest members. He ended up as the last wolf alive in 12v1 with the odds enormously stacked against him and yet he was still solo-journaling wolfchat on the final night puzzling out the mechanics of what could have been a path to victory, however slim. Of course, he ultimately did not even survive that night and the town claimed the win, but his continued WIM in the face of adversity was unlike any I've seen before.


    benneh (as WolfnodDotGif) for Baldur's Gate II Mish-Mash
    Nominated by: Jaleb
    Seconded by: Dawoodle
    Benneh is a strong player of all alignments. Often killed by mafia early in the game, or fear killed by town if he makes it into late game. So he decided to make his role fun and town side as long as he could (as a last man standing type of role should do). He had a strong position in getting town credit that he was likely to out survive the mafia team to endgame by himself. Unfortunately he got mechanically confirmed not town, which ruined his chances of doing so. He had the deaths of Dyachei and 4Mask on his side for a strong path to win if he wasn't announced.


    4maskwolf for Throne Mash II
    Nominated by: vanity.
    Seconded by: Sunbae
    4mask ended up being this deepest wolf in the game, becoming a consensus villager extremely quickly, and made strategic busses and pushes in order to close the game out in the end. he pocketed an insane amount of villagers and pushed his wincon to the end. this will definitely go down as one of the cleanest wolf games i'll see all year.


    Apoc for The Legend of Zelda
    Nominated by: Shad
    Seconded by: Taylor Swift
    This game was a grand example of why the concept of half-way ruling exists. Swapped into a massive kp slot n0, Apoc grinded out five days of thread control and PR management in a very complicated build to lead the village down the rabbit hole while only bussing the most expendable wolf roles just enough to keep himself above serious scrutiny. He ultimately endgamed accounting for the majority of our team's kills, having managed the bulk of our mech while 1000-posting.


    Melehan for Mafia Universe Anniversary 2021
    Nominated by: Wiml
    Seconded by: c4e5g3d5
    To start off, this was her first mash ever and I believe only her third game on MU full stop (her coming from a community with games that are usually a lot less active than this as well).

    Despite all this, she managed to not only be the last pack wolf standing in the game (as well as one of the deepest wolves overall) and openwolfing so hard and so confidently at points that she got all but cleared for it until the game was so mechanically locked by clears that the game became effectively unwinnable for her. She also accomplished this with fairly minimal bussing, something that plagued the wolf team as a whole during the game.

    Most memorably, she loudly suspected and pushed on Variance, the town (weak) hider who gained a new peek every day and who could not be killed by the wolves. Despite Variance being strongly spewed town from a ~65% accurate ITA shot fired from an outed wolf after claiming cop, the thread eventually tinfoiled him enough - partially because of Mel's tenacity - that there were serious consideration towards alignment peeking or even killing the player who had claimed to be a full cop.

    When players in the game questioned her for openwolfing, Mel responded multiple times during the game by mentioning both myself and alexa (two of the highest posting players with playermeta on her), insisting she was in her town meta and telling whoever she was responding to that we would be able to back her up on that (which was true - so suddenly we were in the situation of defending Mel to other vocal townspeople).

    In her first mash she gets shielded by half of the loudest players for openwolfing, is the last pack wolf standing, blows away all players with meta on her, accidentally exposes a cheater and is so good at dodging that she's got herself a new undertitle. So I think this is a pretty solid wolf performance all things considered.


    D3x for Folk Tale Mash
    Nominated by: Champ
    Seconded by: Ezradekezra
    d3x played to his win condition and literally everyone was fooled by his claim after he had some heat on him in day 4. He fake claimed a green on his final wolf partner which let them win the mash overall. This is very impressive but to make it even more impressive it was his first game on Mafia Universe and in a mash no less. He was so convincing all of DVC and the game mods thought he was a villager!


    LordQuas for Pokémon Unova Mash
    Nominated by: ladd
    Seconded by: vanity.
    Very well played game, basically never suspected and villa read. Went to f3 with a clear and won


    Player who did exceedingly well at deployment of a power role randed to them in a single game. Examples of these potentially cover someone making multiple accurate shots as a vigilante, a great save as a doctor, etc.

    Luco for Throne Mash II
    Nominated by: Shad
    Seconded by: Inawordyes
    Avoiding the easy out to clear slankers with the field's consent, Luco put a lot of thought into players with minimal content and managed to bag two wolves while correctly holstering his shot on two villagers.


    juliet for Congress of Vienna
    Nominated by: vanity.
    Seconded by: Hally
    juliets had a x1 vanillize and also the ability to give the village an extra elimination of her choice every single day. while she did use the first 2 extra eliminations on 2 villagers, her actions for the rest of the game single-handedly won village the game. not only did she vanillize the wolf poisoner, which also blocked his action, but she also put the extra elimination onto another wolf, which resulted in her blundering her claim. of course, to matters better, she put the extra elimination onto the last wolf on the last day, sealing the game for village. just an outstanding use of her pr overall.


    Variance for Mafia Universe Anniversary 2021
    Nominated by: alexa
    Seconded by: Chloe
    He was a hider and managed to get 5 successful living (4/5 lived to end game) villager peeks on players who were POE'D in a game that had multiple kill-powers, and his use of the role greatly contributed to the game being near mechanically locked for town by the end!

    stormslyde for Anime World 2: Triple Threat!
    Nominated by: Guillotina
    Seconded by: Garden Gnome
    He randed a rather complicated and meme-ish role, one of those that could be really awesome if you play it right, or really $%#!ty if you dont know what you are doing.
    The player played the long game by patiently marking two PoE players, if he died, their alignments would be outed. He orchestrated a plan to get killed close to mylo to clear or redcheck those two players. Both were town! It helped narrowing the PoE further and put the last wolf under scope who had deep wolf with a fake yet very convincing night action.

    This player could have gone for the alternative and get killed to become a haunted night vigilante but instead he took one for the team and cleared two players close to end game, for this i nominate him.


    Player who excels at figuring out game mechanics and using it to their advantage and/or player who excels at planning and strategizing for their team (including deciding optimal night actions, cop hunting etc.)

    billymills
    Nominated by: roro__b
    Seconded by: Arapocalypse
    The Legend of Zelda Mash was one of the best mash experiences I've had. While it was super advanced mechanics wise, and I help a very low profile in the wolf chat, some people dove in to the super intricate mechanisms, and set up for a fairly straightforward game for the wolves. Billy was in the centre of all this, together with a few others (yes apoc, you have enough awards smh, and jan iirc). With travel mechanics, ingredient collecting, optimal recipes and meals, all smol cool varieties and ways we could use our roles. A super impressive showing. He doesn't play a ton of games, but he left a pretty big impression with this one


    Player who delivered an excellent, memorable performance in that they replaced into

    Hally for 2021 Champs Test Game #1
    Nominated by: alexa
    Seconded by: TripleHaven
    Hally subbed into a town slot that was in the POE and probably always going to get lunched day 2, and ended up not only bringing the slot into universal TR territory, but also burying a wolf who was fairly deep in the towncore, contributing greatly to a village sweep!


    GeneralHankerchief for The Legend of Zelda
    Nominated by: ladd
    Seconded by: lol
    subbed in d3 and crushed it so much that wolves used kp on him first during d3 itself and then killed him the next night when that failed. pushed a bunch of wolves, defended villagers, etc..


    GGhana for Deck Mafia #003: The World is Upside Down
    Nominated by: Guillotina
    Seconded by: Alice Liddell
    The Townies were scum and the Scummies were town in this game.

    To put everything into perspective, his previous slot had slanked hard and got himself in several players' PoE; not only that but the informed minority team saved the slot for a mischop even though they had the means to kill him with an extra kill with a specific killing card.

    That player had to be replaced.

    GGhana was that replacement.

    He became a nightmare for the town party, GGhana caught and pushed 3 members of the informed minority and led his team to correctly day kill one of them.
    Scum had to day kill him to shut him up, wasting a precious shot they needed for someone else, not a slot they considered mischoppable the night before.


    Askthepizzaguy (as King Bowser) for Multiball 19er
    Nominated by: FaitAccompli
    Seconded by: Guillotina
    Set up was 2 scum teams (each with a cop), three peeps each, thirteen town, 4 town PRs. King Bowser subs in N1 on Blue wolf team (which only has one active player) Overcomes that active player being Chopped D2 and with help of otehr replacement player (Guillotina) removes all obstacles en route to victory in F3.

    Nominated by: bopolis
    Seconded by: Visorslash

    I've had this nomination in mind for a long time. It's really impressive how many games he has actually subbed into (im too lazy to pull out numbers for this, but it's 5+ only this year im fairly sure), but his committment to making sure games run smoothly despite slanking/subouts, and his ability to take in the game state and to actively participate is commendable.

    He started playing forum mafia in January 2021 but you wouldn't think it.

    AXIS
    Nominated by: c4e5g3d5
    Seconded by: Wiml
    Mafia Championship Season 7. He appears on the scene. The only tell he can use with reasonable confidence is a lack of self-pres. The rest is the pre-packaged tells that he knows are "towny" and "scummy" but can't say actually make people town or scum.

    Mafia Championship Season 8. Gets N1'd in quals. Advances to semis. Locks onto and successfully pushes over the final wolf who's getting miscleared. Very briefly becomes a finalist. May still be a finalist, we'll have to see on that.

    Seconded by: Cuthalion
    I've played a few games with Hally and she has been a pleasure to play with every time. She's effective at fostering teamwork in a village/wolfteam. The strongest argument for her inclusion in this category is her personality and how she treats others: she's playful, lifts other players up and has a great sense of humor. Her meme game is fairly dank as well.

    Zack is hilarious and has a bagful of dank memes. However, he's also an intellectual and engaging to interact and solve/wolf with, consistently playing at a high level while engaging other players in a fun way. He's versatile and can go from posting memes/funny 1 liners to serious solving effortlessly. I think most people who play with him enjoy his quick wit and the fact that he's a true bronana.

    Player who excels at being a good teammate for their alignment. Examples of being a good teammate don't necessarily necessitate that player dominating for their alignment in the game.

    Seconded by: Hornet
    Never seen him wolf so this picture's incomplete, but as town, he always makes sure to fully understand others' words before speaking, and as a result makes sure not one nuance of one thought goes unappreciated. He can critique thoughts with clarity, to get everyone to bring their A-game and also improve mutual understanding. He's also an incredibly friendly, free hugs on business days kinda guy, and the combination drives you to think harder and with more depth, because you know your work is always meaningful, while still never putting you down as if you're not doing enough, all because the guy's in the room with you.

    She is an excellent town leader, she is one of the best scum hunters I've seen across all games I've seen her play as town, she is not imposing and opaque the efforts of her teammates, she works as part of a team instead of trying to be the hero of the game. I've never seen her become toxic or use unnecessary AtE.

    And boys, every scum that has tried to push her as LHF has suffered the consequences. She is the definition of a townie with a good poker face.


    Player who excels at playing scum, which can include being excellent at avoiding lynch and pocketing people, having pure tone, being generally successful in manipulating/sowing discord and guiding town towards mislynches, being good at cop hunting, being good at pulling off effective gambits, being helpful to inexperienced scum partners, etc.

    she's legitimately a boon to whatever team she rands onto. as a wolf, she has already quite a few receipts, such as constellations team mafia and mountain climbing, and is known for being high volume and being able to clear herself easily. however, for as good of a wolf she may be, there's no understating how valuable she is as a villager as well. in a majority of village games i've seen from her, she consistently steers the game in a beneficial direction for the village, such as anni 2021, sf2, and pokemon unova mash. she has near unmatched dedication to games as both alignments and almost always proves to be a massive thorn in the side to whatever team she's opposite to.

    Ice Cream Team Mafia Town team for Ice Cream Team Mafia
    Nominated by: Guillotina
    Seconded by: Dawoodle
    The best argument for the dominance of town comes from the EoD vote counts. Wolves were eliminated every single day with the closest vote being D1 with a difference of 3 between the main and counterwagons. Every other elimination was a runaway wagon:
    D1: 9/6
    D2: 9/3
    D3: 8/3
    D4: 11/1
    D5: 6 (out of 10)
    As for actual play, town just came together Day 1 and didn't leave the mafia any room to blend in. It started with Hally burying GeneralHankerchief for his handling of low hanging fruit in the game and continued with Marshal bringing attention to a slanking wolf as a counter to said low hanging fruit. The town PR actions were solid and ended up locking the game (with a bit of assistance from last minute PR cover). The rest of town worked to clear themselves, even while under extreme pressure. There were a few hiccups along the way (e.g., a mid-Day 1 sub out which interfered with the mafia agenda, one or two goobers who wouldn't drop the tinfoil, etc.), but the rest of the results speak for themselves.

    every villager in the game played very well either in terms of conveying villageriness or having killer reads or both. there wasn’t a single weak link in the bunch. the consensus wasn’t always correct but we listened to each other well and constantly reevaluated our reads to clear villagers in the poe and sniff out the wolves. the result was a sweep with no wolf being voted out with less than six votes. it was just a great team effort through and through

    the village overall only miskilled one villager, which was yours truly. 2 if you count kza who desperado'd a villager, but overall the village was just on fire with killing all of the wolves and ended up winning decently decisively in the end if you ask me. just several fantastic performances from all the individual villagers that all contributed to their win, such as dunya, alison, fatmo, juliets, dya, and more.

    The town team in Balder's Gate had to fight against a very strong mafia team. The mafia had a lot of well known power mafia on it, and town were able to shut half those names down in the first two days ensuring nobody but town was controlling the kills.

    Day 1 ended at 9:00 PM EST on Monday, January 25th, 2021.
    Along with the 3p (Benneh as WolfNoddotGif) town found the wolves that fear bussed their partners d1, leaving the last few wolves POE'd on the Marshal wagon left for the pickings.

    Along with a doc save in a mash on night 2, a wolf peek from the mason recruiter, and a wolf reveal from a Kamikaze seer the wolves got stuck in an unwinnable position on night 4 unless they had a strong rand in D5 ITAs (which they died during the night before that could happen).

It was a game where wolves allowed stronger voices of town to eat themselves alive and get mired in conflict, and each wolf at one point had to shake off heavy suspicion on their slot enough to redirect attention elsewhere.

    With transcend's death on d1, the remaining two scum (schizo and alexa) had to run through the remaining 12 villagers on their own. Luckily a transcend buss had been planned out spectacularly by the other two wolves, basically locking them town until town was forced to re-evaluate. By that time Alexa and Schizo had both towned it up so much that they were found to be town by many players after looking at posts in isolation. Both players did an amazing job of distancing from each other. Alexa in particular is a player with extremely strong town meta who people expect to die quickly in games, which gave her some suspision after a certain point, but she still managed to take home the win for wolves in f3. Schizo sort of seemed like a wildcard at first but they were outragously townie, the highlight of their play might be them hard pushing neopests so desperately and unnecessarily that it pretty much made them universally townread. A wonderful performnace against many strong townies, it deserves this award.

    It's really rare for villagers to do this nom because they often have no idea just how much work the wolves were actually doing or how much wolves dictated what happened in the game (they are uninformed after all!!).

    Then they'll blame a role or setup and just walk away from the game none the wiser...

    But this team CRUSHED this game. With the exception of jonnyD I don't think a single wolf died on the village's terms up until N4, when it was already way too late. No boatz role will ever change that fact.

    Definitely top 5 teams I've ever been a part of and I've been a part of a lot of good teams!!

    DUEL OF FATE from BM4 Isekai

    Seconded by: Syn
    An in game event pitted LordQuas (with the Jax Wessso fake jedi character) against The Cryptozoologist (with the Dynast Insidia fake sith empress character) in a lightsaber beamsaber duel. The winner was, of course, determined by the amount of hype the players in the game, in wolf chat, and in the graveyard could generate for either Quas or Crypto. And oh boy did everyone bring their A game.

    The event starts here: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...=1#post4814208

    It goes from post #18276 to #18655, and it's just non-stop hype posts and memes. Easily one of the most fun events I've seen in a mash, and it was all the participants making it happen rather than something us hosts were doing.

    If I remember correctly someone needs to be nominated specifically for this award which is hard because so many players, dead and alive, just killed it. Quas killed it. Crypto killed it. Just everyone.

    But, if I had to choose someone out of all of it, I have to go with @Boquise for this absolute masterpiece:

    https://www.captiongenerator.com/219...t-vs-Lord-Quas

    Just a brutal takedown of the wolves. It was technically submitted outside of the event, but if it had made it before the cutoff it would've single-handedly tipped things in favor of Jax Wesso. Perfection, truly.

    Typically during Anni, with the surplus of visitors to the website, it has often crashed in some form. With how end of d1 worked though, there was a modpeeked member of mafia revealed, so most players were zoned out on the game. GH decided to be funny and make a statement praising how the site didn't crash for once, only for it to go down just minutes after the day phase ended and he was revealing the d1 elimination's role pm. The discord chat as well as posting the syntax error copypasta in the role pm flip made it a great moment to remember for the mash.

    Seconded by: 4maskwolf
    During the game Arete and Donna were loverized so that if one died the other would die as well. In their neighborhood chat Donna claimed wolf to Arete and Arete claimed lost wolf to Donna. After some "fishing for info" in the neighbor chat, Arete announces to the thread that Donna is a wolf and that it should be ok to trade them for a wolf.

    Mistyx came up with a great plan to handle this situation. By having Arete wish for a Desperado shot (a vig that kills a wolf if shot or kills you if they aren't a wolf), they can shoot SilverKeith (a potential wolf that would also be a strong villager voice if cleared) and either kill wolfSK or have the shot rebound and kill Arete which would also take out wolf Donna due to being loverized.

    It was an elite plan locked to kill a wolf and potentially even kill a wolf and peek a villager.

    I don't think it's a secret for most of you that my track record in reading Hally has been rather … well … awful thus far in our games. I did have one specific game where I recognized Hally was a villager and confidently (and happily!) let the world know. They flipped wolf. After our Syndicate game together and then Anni (both of which saw me find Hally's eod wolfy and press there) I wanted to make a concentrated effort to finally read that slot correctly.

    I spent some time today combing through recent-ish games this year of Hally's. The wolf game on the Org website, the Vig game over on the Syndicate one, and all sorts of mashes/smaller games through MU as well. Rocks fall, Anni, Homestuck, CoV, etc. You get the picture. All in all there were 16 different games I pulled isos from. I then went and ran through the isos extracting all the day one posts from the first half of the day, labeled them as W or V, and ran them through a bit of a homemade database that would do a few different things for me. One of the things was to make a word cloud which would count the number of times each word was used in these isos and make the word larger the more frequently it was used. For example:





    Anyways, I separated the wolf isos from the villa isos and then removed things like articles (a, the, in, an, etc) as well as player names as those aren't really super relevant to our investigation and cross referenced them to see if anything word usage stood out as alignment indicative in the top 10 most common words. While there were small word choices favored it didn't seem super significant. What WAS significant were two other things:

    One: While specific word choices weren't very telling I did notice a definitely trend of elegance in the wolf isos. The words may change but the idea remained the same. In wolf ISOs Hally had a habit of using larger, more elegant words whereas in the villa ISOs Hally just talked more casually. I'll call these Posts Exceedingly Elegant as we continue.

    Two: Villager isos were much more full of observational posts rather than inquisitive ones. The wolf iso was full of open ended questions requesting elaboration. Not just directly to a specific player but also towards the thread at large asking if it saw what Hally was seeing. Meanwhile the villager iso was full of more pointed statement. It was telling the thread what Hally was seeing and making sure everyone understood. The village iso had a higher frequency – by a significant margin – of Posts Of Observation.


    Again, I really want to get this right so I didn't stop there. Science isn't science until you write it down after all. I went ahead and charted the percentage of posts as a villager and as a wolf for both posts containing an elegant word and posts making observations. It's a bit crude but here's the quick jot down I made to visualize it:





    So I wanted to see how this one was shaping up. Remember, these were all taken from the first half of day one isos which we've made it past here. I went ahead and ran through Hally's iso from this game, plotted the elegance and observational percentages on the chart, and ran the following equation to try and determine the exact percentage chance Hally has at being a wolf:

    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here) = the mathematical chance of Hally being a villager here (do 1-this for wolf obv).

    Which looks something like this:


    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here)

    Or written differently

    And this is Dunya's shot list. 6/8 anti-town. This means her town list is 10/11 (1 lost wolf).

    All 5 pack wolves are on this list...oh and one of them is currently being mistakenly peeked villager...but its role madness...so she adds them anyway!

    so people i could possibly shoot are:

    Alison (the doc claim...)
    Apogee (the nook thing was crazy yea, but is there 3p potential?)
    c4e5g3d5 (i disagree with the assessment that w!c4 would struggle with tmi like the accusations say)
    Chloe (everyone shielding her claims)
    Fatmo (idk what to say here, i have a note to iso him he's in my poe because i have no reason for him not to be in my poe)
    Master Radishes (the "green check")
    staypositivefriend (something just not vibing completely with me)
    Timsup2nothin (something exaggerated about how he handled hally imo)
    Easy nom


    Alison for Congress of Vienna
    Nominated by: vanity.
    Seconded by: Hally
    alison was one of the main driving forces of killing wolves in the game. not only did she help kill three wolves early on, she completely slayed in the endgame where she correctly cased the remaining wolves for mostly correct reasons and just did not let up on them at all. just an absolutely brilliant game from her and a great display of powervillaging at its finest.


    Macdougall (as Scyther) for Clue(do) Mafia
    Nominated by: Guillotina
    Seconded by: Hally
    He correctly identified three out of four mafia players on Day 1 and despite him being night killed early, his reads served as an important tool for town to brutally stomp the mafia party.

    - On the other hand, if your Hally remains in a photorealistic human form and responds calmly with phrases like "That's unfortunate, but I hope we can work together!" and changes the subject, you have an alien shapeshifter on your hands and should quickly excuse yourself and break the glass on the nearest eod flamethrower.

    I don't think it's a secret for most of you that my track record in reading Hally has been rather … well … awful thus far in our games. I did have one specific game where I recognized Hally was a villager and confidently (and happily!) let the world know. They flipped wolf. After our Syndicate game together and then Anni (both of which saw me find Hally's eod wolfy and press there) I wanted to make a concentrated effort to finally read that slot correctly.

    I spent some time today combing through recent-ish games this year of Hally's. The wolf game on the Org website, the Vig game over on the Syndicate one, and all sorts of mashes/smaller games through MU as well. Rocks fall, Anni, Homestuck, CoV, etc. You get the picture. All in all there were 16 different games I pulled isos from. I then went and ran through the isos extracting all the day one posts from the first half of the day, labeled them as W or V, and ran them through a bit of a homemade database that would do a few different things for me. One of the things was to make a word cloud which would count the number of times each word was used in these isos and make the word larger the more frequently it was used. For example:





    Anyways, I separated the wolf isos from the villa isos and then removed things like articles (a, the, in, an, etc) as well as player names as those aren't really super relevant to our investigation and cross referenced them to see if anything word usage stood out as alignment indicative in the top 10 most common words. While there were small word choices favored it didn't seem super significant. What WAS significant were two other things:

    One: While specific word choices weren't very telling I did notice a definitely trend of elegance in the wolf isos. The words may change but the idea remained the same. In wolf ISOs Hally had a habit of using larger, more elegant words whereas in the villa ISOs Hally just talked more casually. I'll call these Posts Exceedingly Elegant as we continue.

    Two: Villager isos were much more full of observational posts rather than inquisitive ones. The wolf iso was full of open ended questions requesting elaboration. Not just directly to a specific player but also towards the thread at large asking if it saw what Hally was seeing. Meanwhile the villager iso was full of more pointed statement. It was telling the thread what Hally was seeing and making sure everyone understood. The village iso had a higher frequency – by a significant margin – of Posts Of Observation.


    Again, I really want to get this right so I didn't stop there. Science isn't science until you write it down after all. I went ahead and charted the percentage of posts as a villager and as a wolf for both posts containing an elegant word and posts making observations. It's a bit crude but here's the quick jot down I made to visualize it:





    So I wanted to see how this one was shaping up. Remember, these were all taken from the first half of day one isos which we've made it past here. I went ahead and ran through Hally's iso from this game, plotted the elegance and observational percentages on the chart, and ran the following equation to try and determine the exact percentage chance Hally has at being a wolf:

    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here) = the mathematical chance of Hally being a villager here (do 1-this for wolf obv).

    Which looks something like this:


    (Posts Exceedingly Elegant as a wolf)(Posts Exceedingly Elegant here) + (Posts of Observation as a villager)(Posts of Observation here)

    Or written differently
