    And in both Midnight Mash and Pokemon Gen 1 mash, all but 1 of her townreads before dying were correct.

    Her normal town games Julia also played well, especially Cats Themed PR game where she used her role to out majority of the mafia team. Julia's reads in the most recent Hydra game were mostly correct as well.
    And in the small amount of turbo games she played her reads were very accurate.

    Julia remained a very dedicated player, and a dangerous asset to whatever side she's playing on, and is always fun to be in games with on top of everything else!
    Julia being a newcomer and having a god read on me is a deflater.

    I'd like to nominate both Rand and Shaw (Kuti plz & Creature) and Sun and Moon (Vulgard & Sunbae) for Best Hydra for their performances in Hydra Event 2022: Game 2, Virus Busting

    Ran and Shaw took charge, laid out strong pushes with excellent cases, and were a major factor in chopping the first two wolves in a 3 day sweep. They even had an IC PR under the belt and didn't need it because of how they lockTowned themselves through their scumhunting.

    As for Sun and Moon, I can imagine several people reading this are saying "but they lost". That's not why I'm nominating them. Their interactions with Tunnel Vision in the game were what I consider to be a masterclass in pocketing. They were able to establish a relationship with them early on, maintain that manipulation up to the point of their elimination, and fake several mindmelds with them, in a way that convinced other players that they were wolf partners in the wake of their flip. It was insidious and amazing and worthy of nomination.

    You are BlueKang, Town Desperado.

    One of the newer additions to forum mafia, you are known for your passionate reads, particularly when it comes to your townreads. As a result, you have the following role(s):

    Townread Her or Die - Starting day 2, you have the power to write “X (playernamehere) IS OBVIOUS TOWN” - this must be in size 7 bolded and underlined font to count. The player must have their MU gender as a girl. If this person is actually town, you will die and she will be confirmed as Innocent Child. If they’re mafia, nothing will happen. You can only use this power once.

    -If you claim this ability in any way before day 2, you will not be able to use it.


    You win when all threats to Town have been eliminated.

    pizza is legitimately one of the scariest townies I have ever seen, and that's an opinion I formed without even having to wolf against him myself. He has a crazy ability to continually re-evaluate his worldview, honing in on the correct solve very fast (chances are that he has caught the majority of the wolfteam by D2), so even if he misclears you for a while he will quickly rectify that mistake.

    Adding onto that, pizza is loud. He's able to get people to follow to him on his (usually) correct reads and once he locks onto you it kind of just starts to feel impossible to survive.

    He's usually nked early on because of his excellent reads + ability to consolidate townies around him which I think makes him deserving of this award.

    I kind of forgot this award existed, but I'm also gonna nominate @Askthepizzaguy for Most Dedicated.

    I think it's easy to see why - regardless of alignment, pizza will make post after post after post doing things that can't really be counted as fluff.

    In a recent f3, I saw pizza post some of the biggest walls I have ever seen, one after the other - in fact, pizza probably holds all top 10 slots in my "biggest walls" list.

    I think it's a testament to their dedication just how much content they manage to put out and at times it can honestly be kind of overwhelming.

    I'd also like to mention that I've noticed this tendency to post walls isn't limited to just the game, you are almost guaranteed to see a few pregame in the signups thread and even more postgame just spewing their thoughts.

    This is an extremely easy nomination for this category.

    We weren't sure which category we wanted to smoke this time; Wolf, or Dedicated. We checked, and the best pick for each was still alive.

    We're still not sure. That doesn't change our pick though, because the best wolf on the list and the most dedicated player on the list are the same damn person. We all know that those two traits go wonderfully together, but this player takes both to another level entirely. The wolf part, maybe that's subjective. The dedicated part? No, this player is observably the most dedicated player eligible and it's not close.

    We're taking

    Askthepizzaguy

    Pizza goes $%#!in hard.

    Every time I see someone say "_____ has such high WIM, did you see how many posts they just made?", I think "Okay, sure, but were they a bunch of one liner snapreads? Or were they Pizza posts?" Imagine a JC wall, but twice as flashy. That's a Pizza post. There’s a big WIM difference between flooding the thread with those and, well, not those.

    To be clear, these are walls you actually read, crazy as it sounds. Pizza can make what he wants to happen, happen, and he puts everything into it, displaying dedication and absurd executive function. This serves him especially well when he knows exactly what he wants to happen due to being a wolf.

    That "This serves him especially well when he knows exactly what he wants to happen due to being a wolf" line isn't to say that when he's town he's a loose cannon with not much higher than average reads; Pizza bonks wolf, a lot. When you're getting buried by Pizza, you know you'll just never keep up with his raw pace, so your best alternative is to ignore him, which is hard when he's a third of the thread. It usually doesn't work out.

    Of course, if we're talking about Pizza, we have to mention the Pizza postgame ritual, which should really drive off any "But maybe _____ is more dedicated than Pizza" thoughts. Nope, shush.

    I've talked in plenty of places about how I like to analyze my old games to look for ways to improve. I think it's valuable and helps me a lot. However, I tend to look specifically at:

    • Things I was wrong about
    • Things I was confidently wrong about
    • A trend towards clears I was confidently wrong about
    • Ways for me specifically to be more right in the future about things I was wrong about
    • All these things, but from games where I was town, duh

    When Pizza analyzes a finished game, he doesn't have any of those filters.

    To look for tips for the next game, Pizza rereads the whole game with TMI in order to compile every AI thing that happened in the thread. He does this even if he was a wolf.

    As you can imagine, it's a lot. Especially when you're as wordy as Pizza. Does he have to do it at all? No. Does he have to do it with wolf games, where the effect will never quite be the same because he never got to read the game without TMI? No. Does he have to include motivational speeches to onlookers? No. Does he have to do it with like seven different accounts, with some of the individual alts posting more in postgame than some actual players during the game?! No. Does the whole alt thing actually help? Probably not. Do the alt-associated gimmicks help? Obviously not. Do all these things put together bury any argument for Most Dedicated Player? Duh.

    Pizza GOAT.
    tl;dr - pizza GOAT, second

    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

    To be fair I've been recognized for.... best host flavor writer, best new mechanical idea (hosting), subbing in, subbing in again, being a good wolf.

    It's okay.

    I just worked really hard to up my town game so this would be the first time MU recognize the town side of pizza.


    Also I thought after King Bowser last year, we were gonna have a best gimmick category?

    We had a whole gimmick game. I pulled out all the stops this year: King Bowser, Waluigi, The Joker, Kirbo, Russell Bo, Hangman, Gruntilda, Weird Al. I got more gimmicks than Carrot Top's box of visual gags.

    Its not like there wasn't competition. We had Moppo, for one. Vegeta. Ummm....

    Others that were really memorable (help me out here people)

However, on night one, he caught a very deep wolf, lilypetal via his track result, and also one of her partners. Holmes played this very cool by not revealing his hand for an entire day phase enabling the village to push out the other wolf PR, and when he made his grand reveal, there were three wolves dead with only one wolf left to defend very early on.
    This was not seconded.
    @Hally

    Seconded by me thank you.

    I did pretty good as the town poisoner in Help Test 3.

    I got wolf murdered and wolf poisoned at the same time and was redirected.

    Such a shame I was VT.


    I don't care, that was MY funniest moment.

    Nominating Moth for most enjoyable player.

    And I don't mean just this year, every year.

    Let me talk about my history with moth. First couple times I played with the guy, I yeeted him to sky daddy and he was town. Meanwhile, he just kinda sat there and quietly pointed at wolves and chillaxed and did his thing. No grudges.

    Then I dedicated myself to not yeeting townie moth. And for a while, I got better at this. I saw moth as being one of those dudes who always arrives on a chariot driven by chill.

    In the recent Gimmick Game, moth did his usual thing except it was every post. He arrived on a chariot driven by random things, the funnier, the better. Also, lots of animated gifs.

    He didn't react at all when I accused him. I died after yeeting a wolf d1. He opens day 2 accusing a wolf and being sad I am dead.

    He doesn't give a crap about your wrong accusations. He just keeps his chill and finds wolves. I don't know how he does it. He's pretty tight lipped about his process. But the $%#! ain't random because it's rare to see him not accuse a wolf sometime as town.

    Also recently, his team was getting run over by town. Six townies appeared out of nowhere and struck down his teammate Good Question with fire and thunder and fury, and moth is out there fighting for his teammate while accusing really townie people of being wolves and arguing with Beck about how he invented all the memes. Not just the good ones, every meme. And acting baffled that Beck hadn't ever heard of him or his greatness.

    And he and Wisdom distanced from one another like the only two surviving wolves in a team that's about to get $%#!canned, and throughout it all he kept his upbeat and positive mothy attitude.

    He needed to personally survive long enough to block the town bodyguard who town read him, so he could shoot the town cop. His partner wisdom begged for a day, and Moth claimed a commuter power which didn't help him one bit, and I was saying he needed to die and was my top suspect.

    Still, town decided to give moth a day, and that's how we lost our cop. Bodyguard blocked. Boom, bye cop.

    And after all this, Moth is on his way out the door and needs to give a fake solve or he's outed. Not one person had the guts to say I was a wolf, except moth.

    I asked him for who the wolves are, and he was all. "Well, you, for starters."

    It had been a tense game. I hadn't laughed all game. I was upset at another game at the time. Moth was in pure lolcats troll mode, and his solve of me wolf, and blank other name, made me bust a gut laughing.

    He and Wisdom distanced some more, she didn't vote him, we yeeted him to sky daddy.

    But even after he died, CrimsonFox was sad because he only joined to play with Moth.

    Perplexity was sad because he had moth as lock v all game, and kept mentioning moth.

    Everyone adores moth.

    Even after he's dead and flipped wolf, people miss that guy.

    I miss that guy.

    And when I leave, I am GOING to miss that guy.

    He never makes me feel bad. He always makes me feel good. He wins as both alignments, and does it with a lot less effort and fewer words than I do. He's a genuinely good player, but in a crowded field everywhere else, this is the category I feel he is most deserving to win.

    Please second this man as MU's most enjoyable player.
    @moth

    A nomination has arrived in your chariot, drawn by a pizza delivery guy.

    Nominating "skill issue" as the meme that needs to die in 2022.

    It was funny once. It is now an old meme and just reads as condescending.

    If you find it enjoyable, think it, don't post it.

    You may respond to this post with "skill issue"

    It will in fact be the last time it is funny.

    Overall, nice to have in games and someone you can count on to give a good effort.

    Fifth to all of these.


    I saw a community MVP up for noms, and Lissa is a clear favorite. WELL deserved.

    I also want to nominate Arapocalypse, for being constantly online to help people even with stuff not associated with moderating the discord. She has so much WIM in games as town or wolf, so much WIM to be a staffer for years, so much WIM to help run games and organize things, but she goes above and beyond and is constantly there for me.

    Maybe this is a me-centric experience, but if it is, then that should bear out when the voting happens.

    Otherwise, I'd like to thank Arapocalypse for being everywhere and helping everyone and always having maximum WIM to help the community.

    Warmest regards.


    I missed a good chunk of the year, so I can't speak to a lot of those other games nominated for best team best town all that.

    But I did scan every category and I did think of names that wowed me this year, in the several months I was involved.

    These are my contributions.

    Nominating Gimmicks Only for best small game hosted by @Guillotina

    The concept was a breath of fresh air, and it would require a lot of close policing by the game host to make sure everyone stayed in their gimmick.

    The game was a stomp by town, and the game was a wacky nigh unreadable mess.

    No idea how any of us found wolves. But very smart people found one or two at a time and just crushed it.

    Memorable gimmicks: Vegeta (as Vegeta), Lilypetal (as cuteness incarnate), Prince J (Drag Queen judges), Beatrice (Investigator's inner monologue), Moth (Moth, only more Mothy), BATMAN (BATMAN), The Joker (The Joker), Michelle (Nothing but movie references and quotes), Jaleb (Magic Cards Only instead of text), Wade (Rhyming gimmick, which I can say as Gruntilda, is HARD) even Macdougall (little girl who wants her mommy).

    Haze's Gimmick was needing to construct posts out of someone's quote. I figured it out and then wrote a post containing every player name, and the words scummy and townie and natural language, so Haze could quote that one post and freely accuse whoever he liked. And then he NEVER DID.

    That's hilarious.

    Day One was Batman and the Joker memes and drag queens and rhyming schemes. Day 2 was moth running over the drag queen judges, and then Phraze self destructed for the win because too many people had been spewed town from the d1 and d2 yeets of scums.

    Beatrice found every wolf, by the way. I can't emphasize enough how amazing this player is even though I have seen them play in person once, and dove them once.

    Whoever you are @Beatrice, you literally are a better villager than me.

    Keep playing. I am your biggest fanboi.

    There is no damned category for this, but $%#! it.

    I am nominating Vegeta for best Gimmick.

    You are Dragon Ball Z Abridged version of Vegeta in every post you make. Your commitment to the character is maximum, you are the legend.

    You destroyed the Gimmick game as town, destroyed the mash as wolf, and destroyed me as wolf in Kingmaker, mostly.

    You have big wins and you always made me smile. You are GOAT.

    I wish I had more time to play with you. I hope you are well.

    Take care, friendo.

    Nominating @Askthepizzaguy for best replacement player

    He's had a few pretty incredible replacement performances since his return to these hallowed halls, in particular, Help test 3, when my man came in and pinpointed a near perfect wolf POE- and- crtiically- turned the game around for town by uniting a town core.

    His WIM and energy re-enlivens games, and, he gives it his all upon entry.

    What you need in a replacement player!

    She has won several prestigeous awards; listed above.

    Font doesn't have any wolf games this year that I know of, so this is only in terms of their town game, but last year they were a perennial slanker, frequently not or poorly explaining reads and usually being a non-factor, and they were killed by town KP in every single town game of theirs. This year they're basically the opposite of that, becoming a consistent threat to wolves and only dying to town KP once, and picking up a few NKs including a N2 in one of the stronger champs qualifier lists. They've become a player who makes you consider joining games because they're in them. Never would've guessed last year.

    Welp, I just did the whole writeup myself when I wanted someone else to do it.
