    Mafia Championship Season 9 - General Thread

    SEASON 9: GENERAL INFORMATION



    Welcome to Season 9 of the Mafia Championship!

    An international forum-based tournament for Mafia players from 135 different communities





    WHAT IS THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP?
    The Mafia Championship is an annual forum-based tournament that pits representatives from various online Mafia (aka Werewolf) communities against one another as they compete to determine the Internet’s greatest Mafia player. Each participating community democratically elects one person to represent them and play on their behalf.

    If you're a passer-by who doesn't know what Mafia is, we have an explanation on our landing page.

    Besides being a fun, competitive event that allows players to showcase their skills and unique playstyles whilst being cheered on by their home communities, the main purpose of the Mafia Championship is to create closer bonds between communities and players.

    As of Season 8, 770+ representatives have played in the Mafia Championship, representing 320+ different communities and 50+ different nationalities.

    Are you ready for yet another exciting season?
    SEASON 9 TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE
    120 communities will participate, each sending one representative.

    1. QUALIFIERS: 8 Qualifier Games will be played, consisting of 15 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifier Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. 1st and 2nd place will advance to the Semifinal Games.
    2. SEMIFINALS: A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 8 will select 29 additional players to advance to the three Semifinal Games. From each game, five players will advance to the Finale Game based on a post-game player vote, just like in the qualifying phase.
    3. THE FINALE: The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall receive the title of Season 9 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.

    This means any representative could play anywhere between 1 to 3 games.

    TIMELINE:
    • The Qualifier Games will have start dates ranging from the end of April to mid June. Exact dates to follow.
    • The Semifinal Games will be played in July and August.
    • The Finale Game will be played in August or September.

    VOTING PROMPT
    After each game ends, the players will cast their votes based on this voting prompt:

    VOTING TIME

    All players that participated in this game must vote for who you think is the best all-around mafia player based on what you've seen from this game.

    THIS IS NOT AN MVP VOTE, nor is it a vote for the player who had the most positive impact on the game (otherwise the people who died early would rarely be in contention). Instead, you should vote based off who you think displayed the most overall skill as either alignment.

    You are giving a RANKED TOP 4.

    The names should be ordered from first to last. The first player will receive 5 points, the second player will receive 4 points, the third player will receive 3 points, and the fourth player will receive 2 points. You may not include yourself in your votes.
    THE JURY
    The jury consists of the finalists from Season 8:


    The jury will also be basing their decision on the above voting prompt. It is up to them whether they wish to specify their advancement criteria either pre-season or post-season - they are under no obligation to do so.

    This year’s setup: Mountainous 15er
    The setup features 15 roles consisting of the following:

    3x Mafia Goon
    12x Vanilla Townie


    Relevant mechanics info
    - Day start.
    - Majority elimination is enabled Day 2+, but majority is not required at any point for the elimination.
    - Tied votes will result in a player being eliminated at random from among the tied players.
    - No outside communication. I.e. you may not contact the other players outside of the thread (unless you are Mafia and wish to speak with your teammates).
    - Phase Lengths and Deadlines will be up to the players themselves (I’ll organize your representative into a game with deadlines that suit their preferences).
    - Thread is locked during Night Phases.
    - Votes are automatically locked in at LYLO.
    - Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction. The mafia faction kill is mandatory.
    - Mafia may communicate at any time.
    - Each individual player may make a maximum of 150 posts per day phase (this restriction is lifted 1 hour before day end).
    - The game will have a host to oversee everything and make sure everyone’s following the code of conduct, but otherwise the game is completely automated (automatic votecounts, thread locks and reveals alignments automatically, the bot receives and processes actions, etc.).

    HOW IT ALL STARTED
    The Mafia Championship was founded on the American poker forum Two Plus Two in 2013 by Thingyman. Originally, it was just meant to be a single game consisting of elite players from about a dozen different communities. But that one game quickly grew into a full-blown season featuring 45+ communities and 100+ representatives. Now here we are, ready for season 9.

    Over the years, many changes were made. The social aspect began to be weighted more heavily, and the size of the tournament evolved each season, most recently hitting 150 participating communities in Season 8. At the end of season 2 the tournament was also moved to Mafia Universe, a site that was created by Thingyman and Makaze specifically with the purpose of being a neutral meeting ground for the general online mafia community.

    DISCLAIMER ALERT
    The beauty of the Mafia Championship is that it brings communities closer together, and it provides an opportunity for players to learn new playstyles, metas and mechanics. And hopefully make new friends as well.

    All that being said, the games can also very quickly become overwhelming and frustrating since you probably won't be able to play completely in the same way that you're used to. You don't necessarily need to adapt, but you will probably need to accept that some of the other players will have a different approach to the game than you.

    We hope that you will embrace this as part of the experience. It's easy to grow frustrated with people when you don't know them (imagine how you would have felt playing with your friends on your home site if you didn't know any of them when you played your first game together), so a huge part of playing in the Championship is also getting to know the other players in some way.

    Specifically, the seasons have taught us that you should be prepared for:
    • A very high level of activity. On average, there will be 600-700 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game in qualifier games, and likely more in semifinal/finale games. This is a melting pot of dedicated and enthusiastic players all gathered in one game.
    • You will likely face very different posting styles: Some will post walls of texts with many quotes, some will post a ton of one-liners, and some people will be very keen to interact in real-time in the thread (using the thread as a chat rather than a thread you pop into a few times a day).
    • A flurry of activity towards the end of the day. This means that if you check out 5 hours before the day ends, you should not be surprised to return the next day to see that the wagons were changed multiple times. If you want your vote to count, be careful to not agree to a game where you can never be around for EOD.
    • A few players in your game will probably have played with each other before. This has become impossible to prevent as increasingly many players have played on Mafia Universe.
    • We do not condone abusive remarks and we have banned several communities from participating based on this before, but each season features dozens of new communities, so there is always a slight risk that you might encounter abusive players. If you do, please report them and we'll take care of it.

    Past seasons have shown that players get more enjoyment out of the games when they make connections with the other players, so we highly encourage you to join our Discord server either before or after the game.

    Finally, we encourage you to at least skim some of the season 8 games to get a sense of how the games usually play out: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...mmunity-Events

    WHAT THE $%#! DOES "WTF" MEAN?

    Are you not familiar with some of the terminology used by the other players? Maybe this will help you: TERMINOLOGY EXPLANATIONS.
    MAFIA GAME RULES
    Rules may vary from community to community, so we highly advise you to carefully read these rules.

    • Only post/talk about the game in this thread. Don't PM other players, unless you are mafia and wish to talk with your teammates. Also, don't post anything about the game in other threads or on other forums.
    • Don't try to use the form of your role PM. So a screenshot of your role PM would be cheating.
    • You are not allowed to change your avatar, location or any other profile info during game in any way that could be construed as hinting at your role.
    • This is a game of lying. Players are expected to lie. No statement or promise a player makes within the game has any force outside the game. As an example, a bet offered in a game is not something you can collect if you win.
    • If we believe you to be bending the rules intentionally in a way that clearly goes against the spirit of the rules, game, and/or championship, then that would also be grounds for modkill and potential disqualification.
    • If you have any questions about rules, send a PM to your host. Avoid asking questions to the host in the thread.
    • Don't ever refer to private communications with the Game Host.
    • If you should ever require a replacement, PM Lissa and stop posting in the thread.
    • No hydra'ing / multi-accounting is allowed. Do not share your account with anyone else.
    • You are not allowed to reference the post-game voting during the game. I.e. you cannot post "if you kill me, you're not getting my vote after the game" or anything like that.
    • Treat your fellow players with respect. Hostility will not be tolerated.


    Refer to this post for the complete, standard ruleset for mafia games.



    I will repeat this particular rule once more in big letters to make sure you understand:

    DO NOT EVER REFERENCE THIS GAME OUTSIDE OF THIS GAME THREAD. YOU SHOULD NOT BE TALKING ABOUT THIS GAME WHATSOEVER ON YOUR HOME SITE. IF PEOPLE ASK YOU QUESTIONS, TELL THEM YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT THE GAME AND LINK THEM TO THIS THREAD.
    MINIMUM ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS
    All players are required to make a minimum of 10 posts per game day.

    Activity prods will be conducted based on the phase length of the game as follows:

    If a player has made 0 posts by 6 hours into a day, they will be prodded in private.

    If a player has made less than 10 posts by 2 hours before EoD, they will be prodded in private. This is in addition to the mid-day prod if the player is a 0-poster.
    If a player has made less than 5 posts by 24 hours into a day, they will be prodded in private.

    If a player has made less than 10 posts by 2 hours before EoD, they will be prodded in private again.
    If a player has made 0 posts by 24 hours into a day, they will be prodded in private.

    If a player has made less than 5 posts by 48 hours into a day, they will be prodded in private. This is in addition to the mid-day prod if the player is a 0-poster.

    If a player has made less than 10 posts by 6 hours before EoD, they will be prodded in private again. This is in addition to the previous prod(s).

    If a player has posted 0 times by EoD on any given day without maj, once night begins they will be subbed out as soon as possible.

    If a player makes 1-9 posts during a day without maj, they have the full night to respond to the warning. If they do not respond to the warning in time, they will be subbed out.

    If a player makes 1-9 posts a second time on any future day without maj, they will be subbed out.

    These rules apply to all players regardless of alignment.

    The game hosts and tournament organizers reserve all rights to immediately sub out any player who has not met the minimum requirement, regardless of whether or not the player has met the requirement on previous days. Similarly, if players are only meeting this requirement by spamming and/or posting in the last hour of the day, that and similar circumstances would also be cause for substitution.

    SUBSTITUTION PROCEDURE
    If your representative needs to sub out during a QUALIFIER (through request, inactivity, or otherwise), your community's backup will take their place, This is assuming 1) you've elected one, 2) they've registered a user on Mafia Universe, and 3) that I'm able to get a hold of them within a reasonable amount of time (i.e. with enough time left in the current phase for the sub to work with).

    If I can't get a hold of your backup, I will give the spot to a representative from a community that joined the series late - or failing that, a backup from one of the larger communities.

    If your representative needs to sub out during a SEMIFINAL or FINALE game, your community's backup will NOT take their place. Instead the next person who was in line to receive a semifinal or finale spot will take their place.

    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.

    Please ping me once flavour writers are decided so that I can plan out something that aligns with my schedule. Being a teacher with two classes going into final exams this year I don't want to get into a situation similar to last year where the only game slot left over was during the busiest school week.

    Unless of course you don't want flavour about Fermat's theorem.

    Don't worry. I'm sure we'll resurrect the community again for two months next year.

    Now let me take a big sip of water and look at how many months last season went on for.

    I think a big mash sounds more interesting

    Two games have been played in our ToS subsection here on MU in the last year. We should still be good as far as being qualified to join, I think!

    And no there won't be ITAs. You gotta do this the hard way.
    Also the last 17 players remaining play Mad17 but phases are 168/48
