    another player who ended every day on a woofer. He also showed some great re-evaluation on a number reads prior to getting to each of them - which makes me think that this Benneh guy could end up being a pretty good player with enough time.

    Illwei in Mountainous Poison Mentor/Mentee Shadowhydra game!
    Nominated by: DoctorZeus
    Seconded by: robyn

    Check out this vote history:


    Illwei ended up every day voting a wolf out every day

    She was exceptionally towny, and, if we'd just sheeped her all game it would have been much easier.

    A case in point- from the moment she died the town started cannibalising itself. There ain't no int'ing with illwei

    no villager has ever reached the heights zack did in this game, because he was on a zip line and those are pretty high up

    Clouds in Season 10, Finale: Over the Owl Falls and the Dragonbender of Power (The Mafia Championship)
    Nominated by: Macdougall
    Seconded by: Delta

    (by Delta)

    As aforementioned, S10 finale was an insanely well played game by town, but Clouds stood out from the crowd nonetheless & played a fantastic game as town \o/

    - His reads were on point the entire game, keeping wolves on the back foot & making pushing for misvotes a lot harder:

    - Near perfect vote history & his votes were consistently shifting from one wolf to another:



    - And most importantly; he kept the thread feeling light & easy to get invested in. In a stressful game like a Finale, that's a crucial part of playing as town as people can get super stressed. Clouds kept things positive the entire time while being a crucial part of the town win. Well deserved Champion title & an even better town game to get there

    alexa in Light 15er Game
    Nominated by: neopest
    Seconded by: baudib1

    - she played as a gimmick the entire time and were still considered a huge threat to mafia to the point that they were nightkilled over literal clears and even considered for the n1

    - pushed the mafia roleblocker since day 1 and stopped town v town violence between wiggles vs. achro, ultimately leading to an overwhelming town stomp

    dyachei in Boomer Reunion Poker Mash
    Nominated by: LanMisa
    Seconded by: Manny

    Despite being a Vanilla Town with no extra powers, Dya was the clearest of all players, to a point where wolves poisoned Dya after unsuccessfully trying to kill Dya the night before already, fearing that she would be saved again (which she would have - from two town protections at the same time!). While alive, Dya was the heart of the towncore, casing several wolves including KP ones that had attempted to go deep (and thus focussing the ITA shots on where it mattered), building a solid towncore, being trusted by all the alive town players in the game and just being a positive influence in the game - all while working and taking care of little Amy!

    Being dubbed "Day Cop" by both alive and dead town as a VT and parent should tell you all about this outstanding performance in a game that town solidly won - and most likely would have won a day earlier if not for Dya's ultimate demise to poison on D4 - at which only two wolves were left alive, with one being deep in the POE and the other one being mechanically boxed in. What a game!

    Inanity in Boomer Reunion Poker Mash
    Nominated by: baudib1
    Seconded by: benneh

    Despite stating he had zero desire to play his first game in years, he posted 20-40 times a day in the early game and basically only voted/shot wolves. He had the planned late-game wolf nailed on D3 but a credible mechanical claim got the wolf to end game, where inanity emerged as the town leader and nailed Bopolis to the wall. One of the most efficient wolf-killing performances ever.

    SpankGangsta in Boomer Reunion Poker Mash
    Nominated by: Apoc
    Seconded by: baudib1

    inanity is one of the GOAT, and he had this to say in postgame:

    Achromatic (as SeriousMafiaPlayer) in Pokémaf Generation 2 Mash
    Nominated by: DoctorZeus
    Seconded by: Twice Shrunk

    In pokemash gen 2 there were a series of fantastic performances from town leaders (Yellow, Raichu/Cobalt), PR's (Seel/InstantHammer), FPS'ers (BATMAN), endgamers (Shad) and scum finders (Pony/Raji). But amongst this cavalcade of glory, SMP stands tallest

    From SOD2 Achro took on the town leader position, leading a game that truly did swing from town-wolves and back again numerous times.

    A strong wolf team sat pretty and gave a great fight, but, SMP's mid game town leadership really cemented a position that helped town win.

    He had great reads, fantastic charisma, and an ability to re-evaluate that was needed in a complex game

    hip hip hooray to achro

    Limestone (as Gypsum) in Mafia Universe Anniversary 2023
    Nominated by: Boquise
    Seconded by: Apoc

    He had an insanely amount of correct wolf reads and kept pushing town into the correct directions. Had Lime been left alive even longer, town could have won I believe. His play had very few mistakes tbh.

    Apoc in Nightmare on Mash Street
    Nominated by: Boquise
    Seconded by: Kuti plz

    Apoc showed leadership as long as he lived. He loverised himself to a valuable scum member so he couldn't be killed and moved the game forward for town so it was, at times, winnable. When other people are prone to panic or yell or swear at each other, Apoc as a town leader is calm and clear. He also has no problem letting other players take the helm and lead the charge tbh

    staypositivefriend in Democratic Republic of Mafia
    Nominated by: arogame123
    Seconded by: Hally

    In a game where town were on a roll early, Spf lost both partners in day 3 and managed to solo all the way to day 7 LyLo and ended up winning. She did a great job of being strategic with her night kills to avoid being suspected for being alive as well as constantly getting elected in the government to avoid getting voted. She also did a great job of creating chaos within the town and managed to prevent a lot of suspicions growing on her through her strong cases/refutations.

    Zack in Sunbae All-vig Turbo
    Nominated by: Sunbae
    Seconded by: benneh

    a stacked player list and zack was left as the last person standing as a wolf. incredible skill on display that needs to be shared to the world

    Bluekang (as Nico Hakobyan) in Danganronpa Despair Time: Anonymous Ninjas and Guns
    Nominated by: Fable
    Seconded by: Manny

    They did nothing but call everyone village and vote sleep and got nearly 0 flak for it the entire game and we swept.

    They have reached wolfing nirvana and has found a way to become an untouchable wolf no matter what they do. No one will ever pull off what they did ever again.

    Achromatic (as Hector) in Witch Hunt IV - Anonymous (Greek Myths)
    Nominated by: Michelle
    Seconded by: DoctorZeus

    He endgamed and won in N7 after loosing all his partners until D4, 2 of them at EoD1, claiming judge during D1 without any pressure and avoiding solid suspicions all game, being a very agreable presence, casing and pushing villagers in a natural way and receiving town reads for that.
    As judge he killed 2 of his partners receiving a huge town credit, but that alone without his thread presence wouldn't be enough for the win.

    SchizoAffected in RuPaul's Drag Race Mafia
    Nominated by: Esooa
    Seconded by: mollylikesorgami

    He entered the town core from the start of day 1 and basically never left it thanks to writing amazing posts and having a great position on his partner's wagon d1. He used his cred to push three hard-to-elim villagers that would normally have been seen as obvious town, faking progressions on them along the way that cemented his town status while tricking the other villagers into voting them.

    He towncased his second partner into a lot of peoples town cores, heavily interacted with them, and gave a lot of useful advice to them. By the time lylo came around, their team was in such a good position that it didn't matter he got snapvoted as soon as the day started. It felt like he made it impossible for his team to lose

    Prince J in Semi-Finals Practice Game
    Nominated by: alexa
    Seconded by: arogame123

    fooled spec chat and most of the game, put up a huge fight despite a very very challenging situation, ended up losing on a rand he was only in due to mechanics and losing partners, but he was towny enough people started questioning if mech clears were legit!

    lilypetal in Sit N Go - 12/12 Phases - JOAT 13er (x2 JOAT)
    Nominated by: benneh
    Seconded by: dyachei

    Her wolf partners, including the wolf PR, got absolutely destroyed on back to back days, the PR dying on day 1. From my mdo perspectrive, this looked like a runaway and terrible town stomp on night 2. I even offered the option to lily to concede, which i hardly ever offer to wolf teams, and she basically told me to $%#! off cause she wanted to do her best and at least give town a good hunt

    She immediately went into a an absolutely perfect JOAT hunt, which she absolutely needed to get that night or risk the JOAT refreshing their actions and possibly locking the game even harder than it seemed at that point. She correctly identified all the fake claims or spewed not-joat villagers and then totally identified the JOAT and stacked up evidence to confirm it was the right shot, and it was. JOAT dead to start d3. This gave her a shot and she steered mislunch after mislunch into a WIFOM-y sleep at F4 to win in a very tough F3 against 2 players with tons of town cred behind them

    This wasn't a town bamboozle or throw after finding 2/3s of the wolf team early. This was a super hard fought game by both factions and lily had enough wim and wifom to secure the win. impressive stuff.

    matt in alexa ROLE MADNESS turbo 3
    Nominated by: DoctorZeus
    Seconded by: alexa

    In a game that twisted and turned, matt came up clutch as a 3p Serial Killer up against a pretty impressive town & wolf block.

    From a town perspective, we managed to lunch the pack wolves d1-d4 in perfect succession (with a few vary mistimed pr plays decreasing our equity), and, from a scum perspective, the final 2 Lost Wolves could have hammered for the win if they had perfect information- so- Matt overcoming some great play from both sides required a lot of skill and he brought it home very well.

    Key moments:
    1) Pushing the final pack wolf over the line ensuring he was safe from the lunch for a few days
    2) On the final day, having realised that there was no mafia factional, not shooting, thereby being able to claim he's mech cleared because the mafia tried to kill him

    Overall very tidy play

    Ultra in Season 10, Semifinal 2: Charmed - Demon Confederation (The Mafia Championship)
    Nominated by: Macdougall
    Seconded by: Delta

    (by Delta)

    Ultra's play in SF2 is genuinely impressive from start to finish \o/

    Off the bat he's towned pretty widely by most town alive & he maintains that spot throughout the game, there's moments where people catch on but for the most part he replicates his town performance almost perfectly. He played an impressive game throughout & is more than deserving of being in the running for his performance in SF2 ^^

    Even when pressured by town throughout, he never reacted in a way that allowed for most of those townreading him to waver & even when leading misvotes on town, he went unnoticed by most all game. Even those he was tormenting each night as Firefighter ;_;

    & Just to highlight how the game went for him; he never reached above 1 vote at any point :O


    matt (as Ephemera2) in MU 2069, a Semi-Anonymous Space Opera
    Nominated by: Hally
    Seconded by: katze

    his team got lunched back to back D1-D4 but despite hard wolf siding for the first few days he was never in danger even in F3 due to incredible WIM and maneuvering down the stretch

    Adam in Persona Mish-Mash
    Nominated by: Garden Gnome
    Seconded by: benneh

    He was very organized and he understood the mechanics of the game.
    It was truly a master class in wolfing.
    Congratulations, @Adam!!!

    Twice Shrunk in Rejuvenation Mash
    Nominated by: Vulgard
    Seconded by: baudib1

    honestly, i could make this nomination for a lot of that team's members, but as someone who was in a wolfchat with him for the entire game and who was able to witness his play in the main thread from a tmi perspective, i can't not nominate him for this

    his mechanical play was stellar, and his manipulation of the thread was fantastic

    mech:

    - twice was a wish granter. he utilized that to get doctorzeus, an influential villager, to townread him by boosting his ita on d1, with the secret drawback that landing that ita would kill him. he further developed the pocket by boosting dz's ita even further on day 2, but this time, he secretly removed zeus's immunities as well. this foresight actually proved relevant, because zeus turned out to have had a bpv, and therefore would not have died - were it not for twice removing his immunity for good measure. we did not know zeus had a bpv - twice was just psychic.

    - on day 3, twice yet again used his wish granter phenomenally. upon learning that lol, a villager, had day kp, he powerwolfed the thread - and lol himself - into a plan that would "prevent the village from losing to wolf!lol." the plan completely prevented lol from firing his kp, because twice's wish roleblocked his kp for the entire day. and yet again, this was an incredible case of foresight on twice's part, because lol's role could uniquely fire an ita at someone even after death - and WE DID NOT KNOW THIS, just like we were not aware that doctorzeus had a vest. with twice making sure that wish would roleblock for the entire day, lol could not fire his post-mortem shot.

    - on day 4, just as insurance, twice made sure an outed wolf - dyachei, who just got revived - could not be daykilled. dyachei had two high% ita shots, and itas were the only form of day kp the village had at that point, so this would have been a major problem for the village. he also made the drawback of his wish a night roleblock on dyachei, which would not have mattered in that gamestate, as we were going for the win.

    - i should also point out that twice (and insomnia, our other subfaction member) helped develop the 3p claim i ended up going with in that game and which ended up winning us the game. my claim wouldn't have been as good as it was without their help - hell, it might not have even been a 3p claim at all. i executed it well, but they helped me create it.

    threadplay and wolfchat:

    - twice powerwolfed extremely hard all game, pushing wolfsided agendas everywhere. he was wrong about every player's alignment and loudly pushed the wrong solves. he sounded frankly insane when posting sometimes, but it is that insanity that somehow, by some miracle, got him townread. many villagers doubted him, but they kept reverting their reads on him to townreads, even though he was objectively leading the village off a cliff. if that doesn't put "power" in "powerwolf," i don't know what does.

    - twice combined his in-thread powerwolfing with the mechanics of his wishes to create very beneficial outcomes for our team when it appeared we were in danger, as mentioned above with lol. he also helped me in wolfchat, which was particularly relevant on the final day of the game, as listening to his strategy allowed me to secure the last 2 players we needed to trigger my keyword and get into my neighborhood in order to win the game.

    - twice also listened to what WE had to say, at least in wolfchat (which is where it mattered to our team for him to listen).

    in short, twice was a massive benefit to the wolves throughout rejuvenation mash in virtually every aspect and every area. i don't know how he's able to post in the way that he does, and you may not like it, but it was very, very effective in this game. just look at his iso - there is no point of the game when he is not trying to kill villagers and blatantly save wolves, yet he got all the way to endgame.

    Amrock in Mafia Universe Anniversary 2023
    Nominated by: Achromatic
    Seconded by: lol

    Amrock as completely broken Wolf Killing Power just had himself a game as he masterfully led the wolves Night Actions, plotting in Wolf Chat, and bullied less important wolf roles in a timely fashion to bury himself deep into the towncore so that later on when people tried to get paranoid of him those people were shot instead for daring to question him.

    First, Amrock pushed hard on wolf partner Sett day 1 with so many fellow wolves that I myself found the wagon heinously suspicious and voted town over it.
    Ego Post from me EOD1:


    Possible ITA Shot List tomorrow if not dead by then
    Jason
    Chef Jones
    Whicker
    Jumpluff
    SecondHand Revenant
    Amrock
    I had Amrock at the very bottom of my reads list EOD1. For my crimes, Amrock murdered me and then once I was dead and to his credit the wolves made my suspicion of Amrock disappear like water vapor.

    From there, Amrock was careful and precise in the wolves he chose to throw overboard, and his wolf buddies did an excellent job (such as Cron) sowing seeds with him throughout the days to give him credit little by little as the days went on. When some thread momentum was seeming to turn against Amrock, Beck open wolves to silence critics. When paranoia mounted one final time it was Cron who defiantly argued with his wolf captain in thread and took a bullet to ensure his team won.

    Amrock needed people to give him vote counts in order to power his killing power, and day after day with dread every person in thread, regardless of if they were alive or not, was pinged with the request. Relentless. Unceasing. Amrock ensured every day that he got all 20 vote counts he needed to ensure he could slaughter town at night.

    Not only all of that though, but the audacity which Amrock moved through the game with is surely going to be the talk of the site for years to come. Amrock was fake poisoned not just once, but twice and still despite all of that and claiming a green peek day 2 SOD managed to obscure people from his trail with sheer force day after day. Then, on the dawn of what would ultimately prove to be the final day, Amrock knowing he had been tracked due to wolf buddy inside information claimed a shot on Dale, the person who was very suspicious of him the previous day and talked his way around this being acceptable despite the fact that the thread had largely come to the consensus the day before that Dale was town.

    With Dale gone, Amrock ruled the final day with an iron fist and a WIM that couldn’t be opposed by the exhausted town. He bussed Beck and Cron, but in between led shot after shot into town over and over, and despite all of this there were only faint whispers of paranoia as town again and again put put their trust in him. Finally, in his last act of the game he engineer town KP to shoot fellow town and guided the execution away from a town member to another town member for what I only assume was style points since that town member, Ania, had quoted Amrock’s own villager guide and he felt like adding style points to his impending victory when silence would have worked just as well.

    Also as a final laugh, the last day where game ended Amrock fake poisoned for a third time for bonus cool points.

    In conclusion, Amrock showed complete mastery of night action assignment, kill priorities, wolf social leading, thread presence, thread manipulation, and put on an unrivaled showcase of mash wolf bullying of a town that had hopes of victory after night 2 and day 3, but were crushed before the hungering maw of the wolf known as Amrock.

    Please everyone ping Amrock when you support this nomination to let him know we really care.


    @Amrock ($%#! you for all of the pings btw, with love)

    Amrock, very well done and very impressive. Enjoy me being salty for four days in DVC as I bemoan your plot armor.

    Nominated by: Boquise
    Seconded by: wigles1993

    Baudib power wolfed through the whole thing, had some sus on him during D1 but went out fine and was basically not suspected through the whole shebang tbh. He was also the wolves' girlfriend tbh


    Player who did exceedingly well at deployment of a power role or other mechanic 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.

    matt in I like turtles they are so chill.
    Nominated by: DoctorZeus
    Seconded by: BlueKang

    Matt was JOAT and fake claimed a red on wisdom. With Stick softing JOAT, and matts fake red, it led to an f5 where Kajot was SHC and 113 (the actual peek) and matt (the joat) were all alive locking the wolves jn to loss.

    Critically- prince + vik were hard town red during the game, meaning town was lost if not for matts pr play + fake red.

    A bold fps that ensured he and his peek lived to f5.

    Justinrs2 in Semi-Finals Practice Game
    Nominated by: alexa
    Seconded by: arogame123

    I was doubtful as a spectator re: his strategy at first, but he did great, claiming MD as JOAT then retracting into VT - looking like a VT (to the point where he nearly got MLed), the mafia PR hunters had no idea who the JOAT was. Justin managed to use his ability very effectively, getting both a doc save + a roleblock and a poison on the MD in a way that ended up being very effective for the setup.

    Nominated by: baudib1
    Seconded by: Kuti plz

    Her role was wolf gift giver, could give villagers items but they had to have a drawback and not be too OP (was judged by hosts). She spent a ton of time into coming up with the items and drawbacks. She managed to use her role to create KP for the wolf team and also hard clear her.

    Event prizes: won a silent ITA shot that she announced to thread to also gain villa points.
    Most importantly won a RB at crucial time to prevent a doc save that could have lost the game for wolves.

    Nominated by: baudib1
    Seconded by: GGhana

    Nominate Jan (Conner McKnight) for best mechanical play as Lost Wolf Lover/Vig in the Anonymous mash.

    really difficult role to play and he had a mostly AFK partner AND he got vanillaized by unwitting wolf team.

    - Jan claimed mechanical clear on his partner
    - claimed double life on last day which persuaded his doofus wolf team not to kill his “greenchecked” partner for the win

    Nominated by: Kuti plz
    Seconded by: neil the eel

    They were vote tank vig where they had a condition to predict the night before the night before the elim and how many votes that person got increased their probability of the vig shot hitting. They were 2/2 even with a n0 guess

    Adam
    Nominated by: Boquise
    Seconded by: Twice Shrunk

    The amount of work he put in inside the wolf chat of Persona Mash was insane. He had a good understanding of all the roles, and helped us others with the inputs and advice. When there are so many massive and unfamiliar roles to keep track on, Adam's skills are invaluable.

    baudib1
    Nominated by: alexa
    Seconded by: neil the eel

    i think part of why he excels in turbos/mashes (esp as wolf) is his awareness of mechanics/mechanically optimal plays. in turbos he plays with heavy awareness on d2 re: avoiding a lunch on the joat/peek. he was chosen by his team in the power ranger mash as the 1 wolf to remain in wolf chat post-death to generally help with group action decisions - decisions of which ultimately contributed to a dominant wolf win

    I'm pretty tempted to just burn this slot now and if it doesn't flip wolf, let the wolf eliminate someone form POE. I think everyone has made really good posts and analysis why it could or couldn't be certain players as last wolf and I just feel like this slot is the least cleared. I think there's also a part of me that would be remiss if we started lynching active slots and then let this one just slide until LYLO. I think that'd be our downfall.
    And ended up as townread by majority of the game, removed from POE, and cast the winning vote for town! She also caught up with the entire game exceptionally fast and showed incredibly amounts of WIM in doing so we couldn't have done it without her and she made a huge difference to the outcome of our qualifier game!

    Boquise in Season 10, Semifinal 2: Charmed - Demon Confederation (The Mafia Championship)
    Nominated by: supershorty
    Seconded by: NateTheLesser

    Boq subbed into a mafia slot, which is never an easy thing to do, and endgamed successfully for a mafia win, in no small part due to the amount of distancing he and Ultra did with some very believable theater, some high quality interrogation videos, and quite a few "tbh" drops, tbh.

    Even though he regularly commits the crime of liking banana pizza and tagging me in posts about it, he deserves a nod of recognition here.

    Yahboy was put into the game after a force subout on d3 of a game in which town is on the backfoot in f5. Only 8 minutes into the day and 2 posts later he has towncored previous ML candidates with laser sharp precision and pushed the entire remaining wolfteam against a wall. Game ended 4 hours later in a crushing town victory.

    I will let his ISO speak for itself:

    Achromatic in Inventor's Fair Mafia
    Nominated by: Inawordyes
    Seconded by: The Void

    Achro came in mid-D2 to a town PR slot that was under heavy scrutiny and seen as very wolfy, having almost died to a last-minute flashwagon on D1 because of it. Achro immediately managed to turn the sus on his slot around and quickly became a town leader, coordinating the townies and keeping his PR under wraps to the point where the mafia team never suspected that he was a PR. He was swiftly and promptly killed during the night for being such a huge threat, a big turnaround from his slot's position the day before. Even though his efforts weren't enough to turn around the town's sinking ship, Achro managed to almost completely reset the game by turning opinions around on his slot and he was on track to hone in on the deepwolf in the towncore had the team not killed him immediately.

    His time in the game was short but he was a major boost to town's chances that was sorely needed even if it couldn't save them in the end.

    this...feels okay? I never looked at Dia so re-assess them if they live too long/in F3 ofc, but otherwise I think a PoE of Bys/Akane/Norwee/Aeo wins

    but I'm probably definitely dying so with a PoE of 3...I think I'd take Akane out

    there's a chance you guys decide to kill Hooper which is fair but he'd also be a "only re-assess in F3" for me

    as for why I TR him so much, well... I don't know, I just don't think he'd be so evil as to vote Smaug for almost no reason and then 6 post D3 while Smaug was trying so hard to live. Like if he's mafia we should just let him win so Smaug doesn't send an assassin after him xD (/j)

    so eh, yeah, kill Bys/Norwee/Aeo imo, and if Dia is alive in F3 maybe kill them instead, I think that's it

    and Aeo is the most likely (to me) so I'm gonna vote her

    ##Vote Aeoryi

    taking a break now, I spent WAY too much time on this for a D3 sub that was next in the PoE, but I'll be around for EoD so I can watch Lemon scream to kill me :>

    His exceptional abilities in projecting town, finding wolves, and showcasing excellent game mechanics make him a force to be reckoned with in the turbo gaming community. One of his most remarkable achievements was his outstanding performance in the Turbo Championships earlier this year. He compiled statistically insane winrate over the entirety of the event and essentially forced the organizers to award him even though the criteria for his play did not match the initial outlines and requirements, his achievements were too good to not acknowledge and celebrate.

    dyachei GOAT. winner of the turbo championship of 2023. balances turbos and being a new parent and makes it look easy. amazing at both alignments and does not allow themself to be easily pocketed as a villager or to give up easy village reads as a wolf.

    frankly i think we can let dya's alt account do all the talking:

    although its a relatively small sample, the winrate still speaks for itself. their play going back to their main account isn't far off from this and its hard to argue against the $tat$



    an absolute dominating wolf rand statistic and a stupidly high town winrate its no wonder they won turbo champs and they'd be just as deserving of the year long award too

    Nominated by: insomnia
    Seconded by: YOLOSWAG

    i now think variance checks all the boxes fmpov for this award


    as a villager, he has good reads for the majority of the time, even catching the team by D2 more than could be chalked to “coincidence” or “luck”. he’s just a great villa to have on your team and he even helps with comebacks, recently he clutched up a win from the jaws of defeat by catching a wolf on a claim that didn’t add up, that wolf was gonna win the game if it wasn’t for variance as he was the only person to spot the discrepancy.

    as a wolf, despite his accuracy as a villa, he still wins pretty much all of his wolfgames if my memory serves right. his wolf winrate is high and he doesn’t always bus from early on / unnecessarily for cred

    and for me personally, the posting style also counts and he just has one fit for turboing. im not sure how much he plays other game modes, but i think he’s primarily a turbo player, could be wrong, so the nomination just seems fit


    aaaaand he’s also won a turbo championship event

    Hally
    Nominated by: InstantHammer
    Seconded by: benneh

    in my opinion she is the current best villager in turbos among players that play regularly - i think she probably has the highest overall read accuracy and is almost never brought to f3 as town by wolves because of this, but when she is she almost always votes correctly and does a good job of convincing the other villager when she doesn't have hammer. she is probably the most common n1 kill because of her accuracy. i've seen countless dvcs where she either specs or gets killed n1 and solves the game immediately if she hadn't already done so while alive

    i can't think of a time hally has made a play i'd consider egregious/throwy which is probably the most stand out thing about her lol. she pretty much always plays her cards straight and her accuracy allows her to get good results playing like this instead of relying on gambits that might backfire (as a lot of people do), which is why she consistently performs well and is often a large factor in town wins and pretty much never more to blame than anyone else in town losses

    her wolfgame has also improved a lot recently with a number of good performances in which her partner is killed off early and yet she wins by crafting good interactions with her partner and placing herself in favorable positions that come across as pro-town for when people read into them later in the game + she keeps up consistently good posting even when the odds are stacked against her

    imo the best villager + a strong wolf probably makes hally the right choice for this award given that townplay should be weighted more because it's relevant 80% of the time with the default joat10 setup

    Has great accuracy on reads, which you can look at games like Anni this year and see a good example of them.

Subbing in to wolf spots he has swept, he has continued to show his strength in multiple forum games and has been active in the turbo community too.

    Stett is an awesome player, an absolute goat in her home community, a constant n1 kill with the skill and talent to nail wolves d1, even whenh the rest of village protests against her. It's no surprise that this skill translates well to forums, and I frankly believe that it only gives her time to shine.

    Stett took to forums amazingly, getting n1'd in her first game while having all three wolves in her poe at some point that day. She showed a similar prowess in the Semifinal 1 Re-Rand as well, yet again being deemed an issue in wolf chat, but nothing was done about it, and so she stayed, and pushed for an impressive town win after 3 miseliminations, and while being placed deep in the POE the entire time. She made it all the way to f3 and helped to secure the first (and only!!!) town win for Semifinals! She did NOT stetter!!!

    Stett is an amazing player to play with and against, and is a joy in the thread for her careful analysis and dedication to the game.

    Nominated by: matt
    Seconded by: Hally

    Smaug has proven that he has a solid performance as both alignments. He played really well in spookfia.gg Game #2 where he was obvious town the whole time and upon his death, he actually correctly suspected the deep wolf of that game that absolutely no one was on to at the time. The basis of this nomination though his how he performed alongside @BlueKang in their hydra @Breaking Brad in mafia.gg Role Madness Game #1 seen here: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...Madness-Game-1

    On day 1 Smaug positioned himself as one of the most trusted players of the village. Unfortunately, a massive wrench came his way when one of his partners got pressured and slipped day 1. But the next day, when @didistetter forces a bucket claim strat, he has a claim prepared that was uncontested by any other claim in the village which made the only remaining protective go on him. At night, Smaug orchestrated some incredible night actions including killing a strong member of the village that ended up being a Templar, an investigative role that lied about having another use of his role, and then a player who correctly solved the game overnight and was the backbone of the village. Smaug advanced through that game incredibly and it's some of the best wolf play I've seen from a new player in quite some time. Keep in mind that this is a ROLE MADNESS game which tend to not be beginner friendly, but he pulled the stops for sure.

    Addendum: He had two roleblocks that he withheld the first two nights, remained unharmed from, and never really had to use them after that.

    He also plays turbos from time to time and has a strong sense for bull$%#!, or can pull the wool over people's eyes. He solidly deserves this title so please 2nd, 3rd, 4th, nth this nomination.

    I believe DZ has had a tremendous improvement in not only his town game but also his mafia game compared to last year. Coming fresh off semis in champs season 9, it's hard to improve at a drastic rate that DZ has. As one of the more underrated players on MU imo, DZ has shown a great amount of WIM and passion within his games that carries across.

    Not only has DZ improved in both of his alignments (which I will get to later), but he has earned 2 awards so far this year alone. DZ is both the turbo champion as well as the mafia league champion. DZ has shown his skills in his turbo game play by making very close to accurate snap reads and helping to carry the torch as the game goes on with his endless WIM and will to solve the game. His communication with his teammates is second to none and ensures to always get his message across. In the Mafia League, DZ not only showed his ability to escape getting scumread and pulling out myslynches day after day as mafia, he also showed his ability to re-evaluate successfully in multiple LyLo/near LyLo scenarios to win the game for his alignment. And he is also a current sub for semi's. DZ has shown he can win in the big leagues when the pressure is on!

    And when we focus on his town game, DZ has a lot of passion and WIM to solve the game and it shows. He produces good accuracy on his reads as well as a demonstration to re-evaluate on certain reads he may be wrong on. He is kind and very collaborative with his peers.

    As mafia, DZ has shown an ability to become a "cockroach," the ability to evade getting lynched and getting out of POE's. He is very cunning and displays a certain amount of charm to get out of sticky situations while fooling others (especially in turbos) to power wolf and get his myslynches.

    All in all, DZ has shown a drastic improvement in both alignments and his showcased his ability to become a leader in the games that he has played in with his high WIM/passion. Additionally, he has won 2 tournaments this year in the Turbo championship and the League Championship. No matter the style of the mafia game (short, normal, and long), DZ showcases an ability to be able to perform at a high level and has improved significantly from last year!

    0Ix
    Nominated by: c4e5g3d5
    Seconded by: arogame123

    (by arogame123)

    Throughout this year, 0IX has shown a tremendous improvement in both assets of her game (town and mafia). She has shown an exceptional ability to sponge from other people's playstyles and learnings. She has been able to take constructive criticism and feedback to further her game.

    She started her arrival back in MU through champs where she made it to semi's. From those games to now, she has made a name for herself and an enjoyable player to play with.

    For one, as town, she has gotten better at making snap reads and early judgement to dictate the early game. She has also shown a tremendous strength in being more flexible with her reads and collaborating with her peers in order to find the right answer. Earlier on, she used to be a little more stubborn with her reads; however, she has grown to adapt and compromise in order to find the best solution. She has a tremendous skill of hearing out what others have to say and constantly taking in new info to evaluate the gamestate. Through her games since champs, 0IX has shown a great ability to collaborate and constantly re-evaluate her reads in order to determine the best course of action. She has really blossomed from a Cocoon into a social butterfly when working with others in the game.

    Secondly, 0IX has started to display sparks of leadership in her game. She has slowly begun to shift into a new gear in her game through making her voice loud and proud in games. She has been taking the spotlight in several reads and attempting to lead in the direction she wants to, because of her eagerness to win games. She utilizes the collaboration from others to lead the charge and convince the players she can to follow her path. Her main strength is making her voice known during EoDs and displaying a high level of care for where she wants the gamestate to go. Before, she was a bit more passive with her play and reads; however, now she is much more vocal in crunch time with her reads as seen in the hydra games, Prince J's mountainous game, and Alexa's semi-practice game.

    It seems after every other game that 0IX is able to leverage a new tool to her disposal that she witnessed in her games. This has helped her to slowly adapt her game and become infinitely better as displayed through her above rand accuracy reads, collaborating with others, developing a more leadership role (taking charge).

    Additionally, 0IX has shown some great ability in her mafia game to replicate some of her townie notes. She is able to successfully manipulate portions of her townplay to get townread quite a bit as mafia. She does a great job of emulating her "townie care" as mafia has done a great job of that throughout the year. With her cunning ATE, majestic charm, and townie tone, she has gotten really good of not making herself as polarized. She is able to trick a lot of people and sneak into towncores, which is a strong part of her mafia game and has constantly been getting better at it.

    0IX is very receptive of the feedback given to her and seemingly improves after each game, adding a new tool to her belt. Her continuous strive to become better and constant play of games has given her new experiences to improve both her town and mafia play. She attempts to be better every game and fine tune her play, which has been demonstrated through her game.

    They were just all around a solid hydra - worked well together while avoiding echo chambering and being a solid presence in the thread while they were able to!!! What really stood out was them doing a fair bit in trying to steer town out of needless infighting, while still keeping us solidly on track!! Not only that, but they also had some fairly solid reads (this was their last readlist right at EoD 1):

    Gira
    Nominated by: DoctorZeus
    Seconded by: Vulgard

    Predominantly excelling in mashes, Gira has become an elite player who can solve circa 60% of the game by d2 using a methodical, collaborative, and easy to follow process. His reads are fast, accurate, and, hugely useful for the town as a whole. He's become a key n1 kill for wolves who want to have a chance in the first ITA's

    His town play in turbo's and normal games is equally awesome (though increasingly, and sadly, less frequent.)

    Hip hip hooray for Gira!

    dyachei
    Nominated by: benneh
    Seconded by: Hallia

    I think this is pretty clear cut/well known for most of the community. Dyachei has had a pretty dope year and they are obviously a great all-time villager. They are often fear/SP killed early on in mashes and normals. They very often have amazing reads and they do a great job of conveying those reads to the thread and not getting pushed off of them by wolves or stubborn villagers with incorrect reads. They are also a great leader -- I don't think they necessarily try to be, but they just have a general confidence and thread pull about them that kind of pulls the player list of varying games to trust them and follow them to some degree.

    Now, these are all general statements about their game that I believe to be true. And they're true in every format-- Mashes, Long games, and Turbos.

    But for some specific call outs of some recent games they've dominated, I would point to:

    1) SNG 12/12 Phase I Think You Should Leave 18er
    2) SNG 12/12 Phase Double JOAT 13er

    In ITYSL, dyachei subbed into a slot mid day 1. Although day 1 and 2 were rough for the village and they miseliminated two villagers on those days, and things were looking relatively bleak, dyachei maintained good reads during that time and kept themselves out of danger.

    They were able to take use of their power on day 3 when a difference check between Beck and Neil was outed and lobbied hard in their mason chat to use their dayvig shot correctly on Beck, which I think most players would shy away from in that difference check. This led to a chain of events that really brought the village back into the game. Basically from the moment the difference check arrived, dyachei had near perfect reads in their POE/mason chat despite lots of things disconnecting the entire wolf team as many of them had distanced very hard against each other.

    There was a mis-shoot on the next day but they helped ensure baudib was eliminated after the Beck shot and then left amazing reads in place that POE'd the game to the final wolves in Robyn and Kajot, essentially forcing Robyn to out as a wolf in order to try to get dya/hallia (their mason partner) out because it was such a huge hurdle for the wolves to overcome.

    And then in the Double JOAT 13er. Dyachei just literally had perfect reads in the game. Not an exaggeration. They pushed on both the Wolf JOAT and a Goon day 1, and while the JOAT became a runaway wagon and dyachei was not voting them, they kept their vote on another wolf and ensured the day 1 wagons were w/w. And this was all while also correctly POEing the 3rd wolf. They died night 1 because the wolves literally could not risk leaving them alive. Dya's reads were so quite literally perfect I used them as the spoiler image for DVC of who the wolves are:

    This is a day 1 list!

    In addition to this, I have personally wolfed against them in a game off-site recently and we saw the exact same thing. Dya literally had perfect reads on our team and correctly put is as their bottom 3, basically solving the game before anyone else came close, in a spot where my wolf team was doing very well and not facing a ton of suspicion. While we were able to sway dya a little and get our way and they were a miselim candidate for some others in the thread but my team felt the need to take them out in case they re-eval'd and got us. I know off-site games don't really 'count' but its just another example of their elite villaging worthy of being acknowledged.

    Now, I don't want to take anything away from the villages in these games, cause they definitely played well. And Dya could certainly be a top contender for either of those games as "best performance single game" but the consistency they've shown this year I think they absolutely deserve the nom for best villager overall and very likely deserve to win too.

    matt
    Nominated by: YOLOSWAG
    Seconded by: neil the eel

    matt has distinguished himself as an incredible wolf with wide range, difficult to catch for any village. He wolfs well in both turbos and normals, showing a skillset that includes:


    1. An impeccable, bold tone that most wolves don't have the gumption to pull off.

    2. Strong gamesense, showing an ability to know how and when to push certain villagers in a believable way.

    3. Adaptation. He can go from hard defending his bros (and getting V read for it!) to bussing them, doing this strategically to go deep.

    4. A believable solving process that has a naturalness to it that actual villagers often struggle to replicate.


    I want to point to two games in particular where matt singlehandedly overcame strong villages: 15er game (hosted by anne) and MU 2069: A Semi-Anonymous Space Opera (hosted by Aquilla)

    The 15er game saw matt lose two of his wolfbros go down early while he also got heavily POE'd D1. matt not just recovered, but turned the game around by getting himself townread and snowing players to the point of endgaming. The game was not only stacked, but also had a bunch of hydras while matt was solo, and he was still able to elude a village that I believe had one of the strongest playerlists in a normal this year.

    The second game, MU 2069, actually looked like it was going to be a village stomp at first. All 4 of matt's wolf teammates died in the first 4 day phases. matt entered the game with a heavy wolfsiding mentality and fooled people with his tone. He changed his gameplan on D3 and D4 to bussing his bros while maintaining townreads on himself via his tone. He then survived 3 straight mislunches to win the game for wolves in F3. I cannot stress enough that this playerlist was incredibly stacked for village.

    I really think matt is one of the most consistent wolves on the site, he's had a strong year and should win this award.

    Limestone
    Nominated by: Amrock
    Seconded by: sheepsaysmeep

    I really think it's a crime that Lime has been around MU for so long but hasn't won this award. He consistently has elite, like 99th percentile, reads in both mashes and normal games. That's his defining trait to me, but his walls are stuff of legend, showing a thought process and clarity of thinking that is arguably the best to ever exist.

    What people don't know as much as that Lime is a very, very good wolf player as well. A perfect team player and wins almost all of his mash and normal games. Never suspected.

    I think the coolest part about Limestone is that he doesn't really care about how he's perceived. He doesn't take himself too seriously and only high posts when he has time. He's someone we should look up to! This+ his proficiency in both normal games and mashes makes him, imo, a perfect candidate for the award.

    He is consistently recognized as a top 10 player on the site but doesn't get any recognition. Let's change it!

    Macdougall
    Nominated by: katze
    Seconded by: Twice Shrunk

    (by arogame123)

    Sometimes, when I discuss with my friends of great players as town and/or mafia in a turbo, mash, hydra, or light game mode, there is one person who always gets brought up for all those categories. And that man is the one and only Macdougall. Macdougall is a one of a kind person whose skills are always on full display in every game they play and it is always a 110%.

    As town, Macdougall is a fearsome competitor and does a great job of coming to solves with at least "half of the mafia" in his poe on day 1. His way of interacting with different archetypes of players is fascinating and his ability to utilize general archetypes and associate each with a player to discern their alignment is just quite incredible. He has a great fundamental and theoretical aspect of the game that allows him to have a deeper understanding of the motives behind people's posts which helps him further understate the game state to help with his solve. He is by far one of the smartest people who play the game of mafia and his presence is quite irreplaceable in any game he plays with his unique mindset that he provides. No matter how he is perceived from others in games, he has a huge gravitational pull within the thread. Games usually center around him, and he has one of the higher n1 death percentages by mafia kp because of his outstanding solving ability.

    Several of Macdougall's elite talents are his leadership, communication, and breaking down his thoughts in a concise manner. Macdougall is a leader both on and off the game threads. In game, he is able to utilize is credibility to foster healthy and insightful discussions with many players to help further the gamestate for town's benefit. He does a tremendous job of creating a "town sided environment" by getting everyone accountable for their thoughts in thread and creating the direction from that. He is almost like a ping pong ball with how he bounces from player to player and constantly creating new discussion points for others to chew on. And with his strong solving ability, Macdougall can take control of games to get others to follow the directions he wants. He has a great ability to always maintain a high social cred that allows him to guide others as if he is a saint.

    And as a leader, Macdougall does a fantastic job of holding himself accountable to his mistakes and attempts to help others to prevent them from facing similar issues he has in games through walking them through his progressions of his reads/thoughts on certain players. He also can bring the team together and infuse a high moral spirit to get everyone on the same page. His communication skills are second to none with how he addresses different players in the manner they are accustomed to and adjusts his tone/approach in order to help out other players understand his current mindset. There is a saying of "we have 2 ears and 1 mouth to listen" and this is a key element of Macdougall's game of taking in and digesting the information from all the players and displaying it in as concise a manner as possible. This helps his peers fully understand his thought process/headspace and to also convince them to follow him with the logical points he brings up.

    Macdougall is a great player as town with how he commands the game through his magnificent solving ability, and his strength in leading a direction to kill the mafia through a strong display of his leadership/communication skills.

    As mafia, Macdougall stands out from the rest from how he is able to successfully method act, motivate his mafia teammates, and continuously string up miseliminations. One of Macdougall's pride points as mafia is his ability to make the game harder for town to solve. He can be the wolfiest person in the planet, but he does a great job of setting up traps within his ISO to trick the other players into the wrong solve. Usually, Macdougall does a magnificent job of emulating his usual town play of baiting/interacting with others to appear townie and then utilize that social cred to push on the players for the miseliminations his team needs. He is terrific at understanding the current gamestate to know who his current targets should be. His ability to slice and dice through the thread and get on people's good sides through "fake melding" with towns on his miselim targets is what makes him stand out from the rest. With his fundamental understanding of "how a townie operates/thinks," he uses this to his advantage to get towns to incorrectly townread him through acting in a way that he knows will successfully deceit them. He understands the level 2 and level 3 of the games and is always able to be one step ahead of the towns to get where needs to in the gamestate.

    Whether it be in thread or in mafia chat, Macdougall, similar to his town game, is a fantastic leader and creates an ecosystem where other players feel confident in their ability to perform at a high level in games. This power to bring a certain amount of belief within his teammates to perform at a high level is what helps him win a lot of games as mafia. He is a team player at heart and ensures all his team members feel the same way he does and gets them focused on one thing only... and that is to win! He is a great helper and is willing to address any concerns they may have to make sure they succeed.

    And like any great mafia player, Macdougall is a great schemer for his mafia teams and ensure there are contingency plans incase the first fails. He understands the most important thing is to get the necessary miseliminations and knows that if they don't have their main target available, that they have a backup in order to reach parity. He is always on top of their short and long term goals so that his team is fully prepared for any type of gamestate/problem that may arise for them.

    Through these qualities, this makes Macdougall a fantastic mafia player as well.

    An additional point to make is that Macdougall is a player who has a tremendous care for the game of mafia. One thing that makes him stand out from the rest is his dedication to the craft. He also cares a lot for his teammates in any setting of a game and is constantly willing to reach out to them as a helping hand. He has a certain care that creates an environment where people continuously want to play with him because they enjoy his company. They know if they need someone to rely on, that they can always count on Mac. Not only does his passion for his performances in games shows, but his guidance to help his peers succeed and be better because of his existence is what makes him a great player.

    As we have seen, Macdougall made a great run in Champs this year getting to Finals and placing in it as well. He also plays an extraordinary amount of games in mashes, turbos, and hydras. He always gives his team a chance and is no doubt an invaluable member for them. He is committed like no other, and he brings that extra juice and swagger to keep on winning games. He is a formidable player as any alignment and brings his A game.

    Macdougall is indeed a great overall player and for any older/newer player, they can just see how impactful and driven he is in any game he plays.

    Town sweep. Good playerlist, sure. So you may be thinking "of course this playerlist has a good chance to sweep, regardless of the wolf team!". I think recently we've seen a number of similar instances go completely the wrong direction. I think overall every town played to a high standard, even when their reads were wrong. I think they also contributed to an enjoyable gamestate despite some heat at times too.

    HIGHLIGHTS:

    great PR actions:
    @Cape90 was an architect and created all village neighborhoods
    @matt vigged a wolf both nights
    @SchizoAffected used his jailkeep action perfectly, killing the wolf with the one-shot kill.
    @Delta chose great targets for their ability
    @Manny gave @foxfalls a suicide bomb she used on a wolf

    great village solving throughout:
    -lots of high WIM from villagers. in early game, the n1 kill, @0Ix, is a good example. she dropped a 20-page doc of solving she did while she was post-capped which included her turning around on a villager she was omgus-tunneled on/re-valling in the same day, impressively.

    -late game @Shinichi and @Boquise high-key WIMed in an impressive way. Boq discovered something crucial to town winning/crucial to finding the last mafia

    -touched on before, but multiple village neighborhoods happened with great solving within (the @Happy / @SchizoAffected one and @Xanjori / @Delta one being great examples)

    Seconded by: Boquise

    Most of these players had never played with each other and despite the unfortunate incident above (twice edit: see s10 g1 eod1 in funniest moments) they went on to crush the wolf team. Incredible wolf hunting from multiple members had us (wolves) hard against the wall early. Not only did multiple members correctly sniff out wolves they were able to convince others and shield their village reads.

    Highlights include realising that Actionguy was a villager that had made a play, rather than a wolf protecting team-mates, I was CFD over him. @samac subbed in to a POE slot and managed to not only stay alive for the rest of the game via incredible WIM and high solving. @Clouds and @ghug literally never gave us wolves a moment to breath and were hard on us nearly all game long. @Delta in his first ever forum game was N1'd because his solve was simply too on point and he reeked of villageriness. @Limestone dropped a wall Day 1 on a wolf, some say it was a wall that simply couldnt be argued with. Even the final day when two villagers came out voting for each other they were able to spend the day talking and solving and ended with a yeet on the final wolf left alive.

    Keeping in mind that they're one of only two town teams to win a game in Qualifiers and did so without any mechanical results and in such a convincing fashion I think theyre truly deserving of this nomination.

    Both day play & night actions from the S10 town led to an insanely clean game from town;

    - Voted a wolf D1, setting the game off strong for town
    - Ultra poisoned a wolf N1, further setting them on the back foot (& didn't poison Stick, which is tempting!!)
    - Litten detected motion around Justin N1, sealing it for town
    - Throughout the game, town worked well together to find each other
    - PRs managed to dodge the NK & VTs took both the NK and the PR shot which ultimately ended the game for wolves!

    A townsweep is rare enough, but to achieve it in a Finale situation where things are incredibly tense & people can be tempted to take a hero route, the S10 finalists played incredibly well & achieved a very satisfying end to this season

    They swept a mountainous game which is so no small feat while also continuously keeping the game on edge. Not a single person of the cast was able to nail the entire team. It was a masterclass of teamwork as the discord held so many notes of discussion between the lot of them.

    The game was completely within their grasp albeit a funny chance towards a CFD that saved them on D1 they were able to maneuver from that and continue on a strategic mapping of the game where even NKs were not even trusted.

    Then in LyLo, Cognizance, snap voted to save Jessnny/Violet because they were near the chopping block and able to also sway it towards their target. It was a great play and just truly a clean win for mafia overall.

    There hasn't been a clean mafia sweep in a minute in normal games/queues and this one just was a dominating performance that was also a fun puzzle to solve so truly a fun spectactle as a host and I would love for them to be a contender this year.

All three members of the team played extremely well and managed to ingratiate themselves into the town well enough to overcome early game suspicion and lead the townies from an 8-7 V/V wagon D1 to a 5-5-5 V/V/V flashwagon that almost killed a town PR without receiving any major pushback.

    The team managed to successfully NK the vig-shot gift-receiver, RB the role cop gift-receiver and avoid a town suicide bomber. Multiple members of the towncore were seen as more sus than the deepwolf in the towncore, and all three of them wolves were able to successfully distance themselves from each other early on and keep all suspicion off of themselves and focused on pretty much every other townie. By the time enough townies had flipped that the team had to be under scrutiny by default, it was already too late.

    Throughout a fair amount of these games Anne has had to deal with a lot of rough things, whether it was modbot messing up with flips, or a glitch in the system, or the playerlist having issues in the thread, or carrying me while co-hosting a game. Despite some games being taxing to deal with she's handled everything properly in order to keep the games running as smooth as possible.

    Draft Mafia 1 v 1 (by arogame123) (link)
    Nominated by: Shad
    Seconded by: DoctorZeus

    This game turned out to be an incredibly fun and engaging spectator sport where everyone got to participate for 12 to 24 hours and make decisions directly relevant to their team's wincon but no one had to long haul it out for the typical duration of a full game. Two captains drafted teams to square off 1v1, while a separate roster of judges had to determine which player randed town in each match-up. Draft teams scored points by winning their match-ups, while judges scored points by finding wolves. Spec chat was exceptionally well planned to allow judges and captains to strategize with their teams pre-rand while still participating in the live specs in which, while everyone's wincon was known, actual alignments were always a secret. The concept offered a great balance where you could cheer on your team and guess who the wolves were independently.

    Basically all participants had a direct opportunity to contribute to wincon, all participants got to hunt wolves from spec chat, and no participants had to commit more than a day or two of their time to do it. I think the constantly active state of spec chat throughout the event speaks to its success more than anything.

    ACNH Role Madness (by alexa) (link)
    Nominated by: Twice Shrunk
    Seconded by: BlueKang

    (by BlueKang)

    Alexa designed another rolemadness game that was both balanced, and it didn't have completely boring or useless roles in the game. Most of them had multiple stipulations or things happening such as neighborhoods when criteria was met. Alongside included two 3P slots that had a pretty simple abilities or win conditions that didn't break the balance at all. Every day had something significant to them, whether it was events like the fishing game, or day actions, keeping things interesting and having the game go at a nice pace.
    Alexa always has fun setups and this was another example of that.

    The game itself involved a lot of good play from both sides. Town had very good role and action usage being able to find and put away mafia throughout the game. The mafia themselves were able to keep it close and interesting with their ability to use their night and day actions very well, and having two of their members win the fishing event they kept themselves from being boxed in.
    However town was still able to band together and get the win.

    Pokémaf Generation 2 Mash (by alexa and neopest) (link)
    Nominated by: DoctorZeus
    Seconded by: Twice Shrunk

    @Professor Elm, @Anne and @alexa designed a well balanced game that had interesting mechanics, exciting events, and, a fun mix of roles.

    Particular shout outs in the design to:
    - The 20% ITA's which helped bring a consistent sense of excitement throughout the day
    - A fun role set that included a cop check that needs to be charged up by being targetted, a JOAT who has to draw their powers, and public hoods
    - Varied anti-claim mechanics that kept town from completely blowing their loads

    This thoughtful design was matched by a competitive, good natured, and highly skilled player base who kept the party going in DVC and in thread over an exciting week!

    The fun had by the whole player base is encapsulated in the fact that this mash had the second most posts of a non anni game on Mafia Universe- and- most excitingly the top poster ended up being a wolf!!

    Great performances in the game were had by mafia and wolf alike, with shout outs frequently given in thread and across DVC.

    What a fab way to end mash season....bring on anni!

    Power Rangers Mash Role PM
    Hello , you are Damon Henderson.



    Portrayed By: Reggie Rolle
    Ranger Powers: Lost Galaxy Green

    You are a member of the Protectors of the Grid, and you have the following abilities:

    1. Account Swap
      N1 Choose Two other players. If both players are the same alignment, they will be forced to swap accounts and roles (the swap will be announced). If these two players are different alignments, you will de-morph.

    Even without the parity cop aspect, there are some interesting implications of swapping two accounts. It's essentially an unstoppable bus driver role but with the hilarity of people moving accounts.

    And the parity cop aspect and risk of death makes it a high risk high reward role.

    If i would have changed anything, probably it would just be to make it at least 2-shot because man this looks fun to play!

    Golden Balls (by Achromatic) (link)
    Nominated by: Dandelion
    Seconded by: Twice Shrunk

    In this game, every night players could submit a new mechanic to be added to the game and specchat could vote on which mechanics they liked best. Achro, under the name of Skill Issue Inc., created a mechanic that added an interesting new aspect to the game for both factions and also built off of the previous day's neighborhood mechanic where players could choose to "split or steal" votes with their former d1 neighbor. Achro also used this mechanic to advance the wincon of his own faction (town) in a clever way by giving a gun to the 3 person neighborhood, which he was reading as pure. This resulted in a wolf being shot the next day.

    In addition to this, by far the best aspect of this mechanic was the player obituaries that Achro wrote:

    "If your neighbor is dead already when this mechanic is implemented we here at Skill Issues Inc will write a lovely celebration of life tribute to your loved one to be posted publicly by the host along side the results of the GOLDEN BALLS!"
    These "obituaries" for the dead players were very funny and by far the most enjoyable part of the game

    The quoted post only captures a very brief encapsulation of the hilarity that ensued.

    @DoctorZeus re-enters thread and gives us what sounds like a bit of TMI on he and his wife's extracurriculars. The thread erupts into a storm of confusion and ... pride and happiness? for DZ. The responses to DZ's post get continually more and more funny and is end-capped by Transcend @matt) responding to DZ's initial post with his own Avatar, a very cute doggo giving a thumbs up in recognition and pride.

    If that wasn't enough, and it was, because every single time I saw that dog giving a thumbs up to that post, I nearly died laughing (quite literally, I'd go from laughing into a coughing fit I could not control!), and I then began adding/editing the thumbs up from DZ's avatar onto Matt's doggo avatar in response which he ended up applying as his new PFP. I then went and added the thumbs up to MY avatar/pfp as well and you ended up with the positive reinforcement canine triumvirate.




    Just an absolutely hilarious and (semi)wholesome event that grew organically from a randomly funny post and a very treasured moment from a mash that had many memes and great moments.

    nutella, you are Yosuke Hanamura.

    Junes, a large department store, is running mom-and-pop stores in Inaba town out of business. And it so happens that you are the son of Inaba town's Junes department director, which places you in a somewhat awkward position. Your friends do not blame you for a situation in which you have no say, but other people are less understanding. In particular, the girl you had a crush on was only nice to you because she waited tables at a Junes' mall café , so she essentially worked for your father. This discovery hits you particularly hard because you learn the hard truth right after she is killed. Of all the players in the Investigative Team, you have probably the biggest chip on your shoulder, because you are searching for the killer of the subject of your unrequited affection.

    You are a very useful party member that can provide excellent wind damage and decent physical damage and healing. You are not overspecialized ace, but you can be helpful in almost every party. However, your role is inspired by the fact that you work part-time for a big corporation.

    Lemonfairy, you are Fuuka Yamagishi.

    You get kidnapped right after the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad becomes aware of your Navigation potential. Predictably, you get rescued and become a fairly competent Navigator, far worse than your counterparts from Persona 4 and 5, but a marked improvement over Mitsuru, the interim Navigator of Persona 3.

    This means that Mitsuru joins field combat instead. While this might not entirely be a good thing, that's definitely not your fault. Hence, your power role will reflect how useful you are to the party.

    You are the velvet room attendant for the final part of Persona 5. Due to certain events that I am not going to delve into in order to avoid spoilers, you were split into two separate people for most of the games, who both took the role of velvet station attendants before you were fused back into existence. Both you and your predecessors are responsible for bookkeeping your Personas and for their itemization, a gruesome and sinister process that turns Personas into valuable items, and, most importantly, rare skills that cannot be found anywhere else.

    Unfortunately, you are one of the characters that were going to receive a power role, but were made vanilla by budget cuts. We are sad about that as well.

    2. Submitting your Social Stat Actions is incredibly important. Not only this may generate powerful Night Actions, but you may actually be an unconscious Power Role whose Social Stat Actions are fake and hiding a "real" Night Action.
    3. On night 0, you can (and should) target a player with the Knowledge Social Stat Action.
    4. From night 1 on, you can (and should) submit the Charm Social Stat Action, the Guts Social Stat Action, the Kindness Social Stat Action, the Knowledge Social Stat Action and the Proficiency Social Stat Action.
    5. In case this was not clear, you are allowed to target a different player per night with each of your Social Stat Actions (though you may choose to target the same player with two - or more- different Social Stat Actions during the same night). You are also allowed to self-target with your Social Stat Actions. However...
    6. You may not target the same player with the same type of Social Stat Action during consecutive nights.
    7. Your Social Stat Actions may not be tracked or watched (though they may be tampered with in other ways, such as with roleblocks) but the real Night Action your (or other peoples') Social Stat Actions may generate can be tracked and watched.
    8. Whenever you target a player X with a specific type of Social Stat Action, you assign your score for that Social Stat to that player. Other players may do the same: if multiple players target the same player X with the same type of Social Stat Action, the Social Stat scores of the submittants will be added up.
    9. If player X reaches a certain target number for a particular Social Stat a new Night Action will be generated. Please check the table with Night Actions generated by Social Stat Actions in the OP.
    10. If you want to make sure that a Night Action is generated, you may spend Hit Points (a.k.a. your sweat, your blood and your life essence) and choose a Social Stat.
    11. For every 10 HPs you spend on a Social Stat, you will increase that Social Stat by 1 point for that Night only.
    12. if you feel brave, reckless or stout, you may spend Hit Points on more than one Social Stat at once during the same night.

In case this was not clear, you are allowed to target a different player per night with each of your Social Stat Actions (though you may choose to target the same player with two - or more- different Social Stat Actions during the same night). You are also allowed to self-target with your Social Stat Actions. However...
    6. You may not target the same player with the same type of Social Stat Action during consecutive nights.
    7. Your Social Stat Actions may not be tracked or watched (though they may be tampered with in other ways, such as with roleblocks) but the real Night Action your (or other peoples') Social Stat Actions may generate can be tracked and watched.
    8. Whenever you target a player X with a specific type of Social Stat Action, you assign your score for that Social Stat to that player. Other players may do the same: if multiple players target the same player X with the same type of Social Stat Action, the Social Stat scores of the submittants will be added up.
    9. If player X reaches a certain target number for a particular Social Stat a new Night Action will be generated. Please check the table with Night Actions generated by Social Stat Actions in the OP.
    10. If you want to make sure that a Night Action is generated, you may spend Hit Points (a.k.a. your sweat, your blood and your life essence) and choose a Social Stat.
    11. For every 10 HPs you spend on a Social Stat, you will increase that Social Stat by 1 point for that Night only.
    12. if you feel brave, reckless or stout, you may spend Hit Points on more than one Social Stat at once during the same night.


    Junpei Iori true role PM


    Duckt, you are Junpei Iori.

    Actually, I lied. You do get a power role, because I thought it'd be funny for someone who's bad at school to boost other peoples' knowledge. Have fun guiding others to a treasure you cannot possess.


    In this game, you are a village Unconscious Stat Booster and Baton Pass Originator, and you have the following abilities:

    ii) Knowledge Boost:

    1. As long as you are alive, all villagers receive a +2 bonus to all Opposed Knowledge Tests they undertake (but not ones they are targeted with).
    2. This passive ability may not be roleblocked.


    iii) Baton Pass: Every night, starting night 1, the player that you have targeted with the Kindness Social Stat will receive the following truthful message:
    1. You have received the Baton Pass ability for the rest of the game. If you manage to give a Downed status to a player X during ITAs, you may post Pass the Baton to player Y in bold red.
    2. If player X is still downed when that happens, the next damage skill from player B that targets player X will deal double damage. This stacks with the damage player X suffers from being Downed.


    Fable is dead:

    Ryuji Sakamoto


    Fable, you are Ryuji Sakamoto.

    You take the role of the Protagonist's idiot friend and butt monkey that was Junpei's in Persona 3 and Yosuke's in Persona 4. On the plus side, you are much more useful in a fight than either of them (especially Junpei), and your Confidant ability saves a lot of times against a trash mod. Unfortunately, your "let's get back at these rotten adults" schtick is awkward, weird, and a blatant example of bad writing. Still, your story arc is somewhat satisfying and you are pretty funny. So here's a power role that reflects your personality, which is that of a person who cannot hold a secret if his life depended on it.

    ii) No indoor voice: It is apparently your lifelong mission to inform everyone that you are a Phantom Thief.

    Every night, starting night 1, you must select a player that you have not selected before (that is not a typo: this action is compulsory. Should you fail to select a valid target, it will be randed for you and you will be punished). Your target will receive your affiliation.


    Sett is dead.

    Hifumi Togo


    Sett, you are Hifumi Togo.

    You're an excellent Go player, and the Protagonist of Persona 5 befriends you in order to learn the game (and some tactics that will help him in combat); in turn, he helps you cast aside the overbearing influence your mother has over you, who is even going as far as artificially inflating your Go results. As interesting as your Confidant story is, it pales in front of the Confidant abilities that you provide, which are arguably the best in the game (alongside Chihaya's). In fact, I'd go as far as saying that most of the abilities you provide had absolutely no business being optional. Naturally, we had to give you a power role that reflected your skills.

    iii) Tactical Spending:

    1. Every night, starting night 1, you may target up to two players, A and B and attempt to pass a Simple Test for each of them (Proficiency, 8).
    2. A target for which you pass this Test will gain the permanent ability to pay with SPs for skills with a HP cost, and vice versa (for example if a skill costs 10% HPs, their maximum HP is 80, they may pay with 8SPs instead of 8HPs).
    3. Please note that boosting your Proficiency with HPs in order to pass the Simple Test for player A will not boost your Proficiency for your Simple Test towards player B. In other words, you will have to pay HPs for both players.
    4. Obviously, your targets will be informed if they receive this boon.


    Note:

    1. You are allowed to target the same player during consecutive nights with this ability (the boon you grant is permanent, but maybe you have decided that your action failed for some reason and want to try again).
    2. In case this was not obvious, you are allowed to self-target.


    Abraxas is dead:

    Chie Satonaka


    Abraxas, you are Chie Satonaka.

    Your interests include standing up for the weak (unless it's Yosuke, whom you -and you alone!- like to bully) eating more beef than the rest of Inaba town put together, watching martial arts movies and kicking your friend Yosuke in the family jewels each time he does anything even remotely wrong. And since Yosuke $%#!s up a fair bit, it's amazing he is not wheelchair-bound yet. All in all, you are quite an entertaining character, but your usefulness in combat takes a nosedive during the second half of the game, where your cold damage starts to lag so you are stuck with setting other people for criticals and praying the trash mobs you are facing do not resist physical damage.

    Still, you are quite a lifesaver in the first part of the game, and I've already said, you're always good for a quick, cheap laugh. Or a cheap shot (to the 'nads). Yosuke should probably start wearing a cup.


    In this game, you are a village Bully Hunter, and you have the following abilities:

    i) Social Stats and Persona: Please find your Social Stats and your Persona below.

    ii) Protect the weak:

    1. Every night, starting night 1, you may choose two players, A (Opposed, Kindness+X/10) and B (Opposed, Guts). You cannot choose yourself as either player A or B. This Night Action is not compulsory.
    2. Player A must not be the first or the second vote getter at End of Day, and must not have more than 50 posts on the previous day. Player B must be someone who voted Player A at the relevant End of Day.
    3. As you can see above, you must then try to past two Opposed Tests: Guts against player B and Kindness against player A, where X is equal to the number of posts player A made during the previous day. Fractions are rounded up.
    4. Here's what is going to happen:
      1. If both Tests are failed, nothing will happen.
      2. If the Kindness Test succeeds, but the Guts test is failed, Player B will affiliation peek player A.
      3. If the Guts Test succeeds, but the Kindness Test is failed, player B will die (lose one life). If player B dies as a result of this and reveals to be a villager, you will die (lose one life). If you die because of this ability, your reveal will mention this fact.
      4. If both Tests succeed, player B will die (lose one life) if and only if player B is a werewolf and player A is a villager. This Night Action is unanythingable.


    Restriction:

    You may not choose yourself as player A or B, and you may not choose the same player A during consecutive nights.



    Canon-chan is dead:

    Goro Akechi and Joker


    Canon-chanand TehBankertin, one of you is Goro Akechi, a TV-famous high-school detective that is on the hunt for the Phantom Thieves. The other one is Akira Kurusu, better known as Joker, the protagonist of Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal, as well as the leader of the Phantom Thieves, a group of misfits set to change the hearts of evildoers.

    One of you has been framed for a crime he didn't commit; as a result, he became an outcast, sent by his parents to live with a family friend (for a fee, of course). The other one is enjoying fame and success... and now, you will have to work together, just like you did in the videogame.


    You read that correctly: neither of you knows which is which. Whenever this role PM refers to both of you, it will simply call you "Neighbours".

    In this game, you are either neutral Killer-in-Training or the village Post-Death Seer Vigilante. Here are the Neighbours' abilities:

    i) Social Stats and Persona: You can find your Social Stats and your Persona (hopefully the first but not the last Persona in your Persona Roster) below:

    Social Stat
    Value
    Charm 7
    Guts 7
    Kindness 5
    Knowledge 7
    Proficiency 4
    HPs 170
    SPs 125
    Affinities Resist: Physical, Gun, Fire, Ice, Electric, Wind, Nuclear, Psychokinesis, Bless, Curse

    Spells Effect Cost
    Megidolaon 22HPs worth of almighty damage, shared equally between two targets. 80SPs
    Door of Hades 5% chance of killing (N/2)+2 targets. Each survivor is dealt 10HPs worth of almighty damage. 100SPs
    Hama 5% of killing one target.. 25SPs
    Makougaon 5HPs worth of bless damage to (N/2)+2 targets. 60SPs
    Samsara 5% of killing (N/2)+2 targets. 70SPs
    Hama Boost Add 15% to the instakill chance of Hama- skills (and Samsara). n/a
    Magic Ability Magical skills deal 50% more damage. Does not stack with any Amp or Boost skill. n/a
    Victory Cry The first time you kill a player during this ITA session, your HPs and SPs are automatically regenerated. n/a

    Restrictions:

    1. Your other Personas do not recover HPs/SPs from Victory Cry when you kill a player (unless that other Persona has Victory Cry as well).


    ii) Wild Card: Both Neighbours have the extremely rare ability to keep multiple Personas within you.

    1. Whenever you kill a player during ITAs, you automatically add their Persona to your Persona roster (the moderator account will not notify you of this: you are supposed to keep track yourself). Any Persona you inherit this way will revert to its maximum number of HPs and SPs.
    2. You may not switch Personas during ITA sessions.
    3. Each of your Personas is still limited to 8 skills.
    4. You have the HPs and SPs of the Persona whose skill you last cast.
    5. In order to switch to another Persona, PM the moderator account (not during ITA sessions).
    6. The HPs and SPs of all your Personas will return to their maximum number right after the elimination reveal.


    iii) Win Conditions:

    1. Joker's win condition is the village one, and it is stated in the relevant OP. Goro Akechi's win condition is as follows:
      1. Goro Akechi is the last player standing (i.e. everyone else is dead). In this case, Goro Akechi wins alone.
      2. The werewolves are eliminated, and the Neighbours are both alive. In this case, Goro Akechi wins with the village.
      3. The Neighbours are responsible for the deaths of at least 2 werewolves and at least 5 villagers (Goro Akechi will leave the game victoriously). Votes for eliminated players do not count.


    iv) Neighbourhood rules:

    1. You have 24h chat with each other, starting right now. Here's the link to the discord chat.
    2. The Neighbours the game with the same HPs, SPs, Social Stats and Personas (though each of you might acquire different Personas through the Wild Card ability - more on this below).
    3. Whenever your abilities are different, this will be explicitly noted.
    4. Any harmful Night Action, Day Action (including Event Prizes) or damage skills Neighbours use on each other will always fail. Votes for each other count, though. If you are unsure whether a Night or Day Action is harmful, please PM the moderator.

    v) Loose Lips Sink Ships: Please be aware that the werewolves know that Goro Akechi is in the game, and are searching for him.

    vi) Neighbourhood Perks:

    1. The Neighbours may not be affiliation or full role peeked; any such attempt will return a "processed" feedback.
    2. The Neighbours' HPs, SPs, Affinities or Personas may not be peeked in any way, should such abilities exist. Similarly, such attempts will return a "processed" feedback.
    3. Both Neighbours are Silent Skillcasters, and cast all their skills silently. Please check the relevant OP to see what this means.


    vii) Execution:

    1. Every night, starting night 1, the Neighbours may collectively target one player for death (Guts, Opposed).
    2. In order to do this, the Neighbours must choose both the target and which Neighbour performs the kill (the chosen player will undertake the Test and visit the target).
    3. Both Neighbours need to send a PM to the moderator account with the target and the name of the Neighbour that performs the kill.
    4. Both PMs also need to include how many HPs (if any) is the chosen Neighbour sacrificing in order to pass the Test (0 is a valid answer, but it needs to be consistent in both PMs).
    5. If the information from at least one of the PMs is incomplete, or if it does not match the other PM, the Test will not be undertaken and the Night Vig will not be performed.
    6. If this action is successful, the resulting night vigilante shot will be untrackable, unwatchable, unroleblockable and unmovable to other targets.
    7. If the chosen neighbour that performs the kill ends up being Goro Akechi, that Night Vigilante shot will be considered a factional Night Kill with an opposed Guts Test.
    8. If one of the Neighbours dies (or leaves the game) the other might submit this ability as if it were a simple Night Vigilante shot with an Opposed Guts Test (unless the surviving Neighbour is Goro Akechi, in which case that Night Vigilante shot will be considered a factional Night Kill, but without an opposed Guts Test).


    viii) Intelligence Gathering:

    1. Every Night, starting night 1, provided both Neighbours are alive and at least one of them has won an Event Prize today, both neighbours may Post-Death Affiliation Peek (Knowledge, Opposed) a player.
    2. A Post-Death Affiliation Peek is an action that involves the moderator revealing the affiliation of the peeked player after the seer has died. In this particular case, the peeks will be published if and when the first Neighbour dies (or leaves the game).
    3. In order to do this, the Neighbours must choose both the target and which Neighbour performs the peek (the chosen player will undertake the Test and visit the target).
    4. Both Neighbours need to send a PM to the moderator account with the target and the name of the Neighbour that performs the peek.
    5. Both PMs also need to include how many HPs (if any) is the chosen Neighbour sacrificing in order to pass the Test (0 is a valid answer, but it needs to be consistent in both PMs).
    6. If the information from at least one of the PMs is incomplete, or if it does not match the other PM, the Test will not be undertaken and the Post-Death Peek will not be performed.
    7. If one of the Neighbours dies (or leaves the game) this ability will be discontinued.


    ix) Death is not a hunter unbeknownst to its prey:

    1. If and when one of the Neighbours dies, this role PM will be revealed, and the gamethread will not be informed whether the fresh corpse was a villager or a neutral.
    2. If and when one of the Neighbour dies, the surviving one will be informed of their True Role.
    3. If Goro Akechi is a surviving Neighbour, they will receive an additional life. Whenever that life is spent, Goro Akechi will be informed of this (but the gamethread will not be) and restore their maximum HPs and SPs.
    4. If Goro Akechi leaves the game victoriously, the moderator will publish their role and inform the gamethread of this fact (which will inform the other player that they are Joker).


    x) I would like to rage:

    1. If and only if Joker is dead, twice during the game, during the day, Goro Akechi may choose to drive themselves insane (Goro Akechi should PM the moderator account if they intend to do that).
    2. When Goro Akechi has driven himself insane, his Skills deal double damage, but he also takes double damage from Skills. This effect lasts for the remainder of the day.



    wiggles1993 is dead:

    Kanji Tatsumi

    Kanji Tatsumi n0 role PM


    wiggles1993, you are Kanji Tatsumi.

    You have the reputation of being a delinquent, which, in Inaba town, is the equivalent of dying your hair, wearing an earring and maybe having a short temper. You also are one of the first people to get kidnapped, but you get rescued by the Investigation team and decided to join them. You are reasonably useful in combat but your "looks like a tough guy but is actually a big softie" story is not exactly groundbreaking or awe-inspiring. So you only get to be a vanilla villager.


    In this game, you are a vanilla villager, and you have the following abilities:

    ii) Social Stat Actions:

    1. Every night, starting night 0, you, together with all the other players that have received a vanilla villager role PM can (and should) submit your Social Stat Actions. You have one Social Stat Action on night 0, and 5 (five) Social Stat Actions from night 1 on.
    2. Submitting your Social Stat Actions is incredibly important. Not only this may generate powerful Night Actions, but you may actually be an unconscious Power Role whose Social Stat Actions are fake and hiding a "real" Night Action.
    3. On night 0, you can (and should) target a player with the Knowledge Social Stat Action.
    4. From night 1 on, you can (and should) submit the Charm Social Stat Action, the Guts Social Stat Action, the Kindness Social Stat Action, the Knowledge Social Stat Action and the Proficiency Social Stat Action.
    5. In case this was not clear, you are allowed to target a different player per night with each of your Social Stat Actions (though you may choose to target the same player with two - or more- different Social Stat Actions during the same night). You are also allowed to self-target with your Social Stat Actions. However...
    6. You may not target the same player with the same type of Social Stat Action during consecutive nights.
    7. Your Social Stat Actions may not be tracked or watched (though they may be tampered with in other ways, such as with roleblocks) but the real Night Action your (or other peoples') Social Stat Actions may generate can be tracked and watched.
    8. Whenever you target a player X with a specific type of Social Stat Action, you assign your score for that Social Stat to that player. Other players may do the same: if multiple players target the same player X with the same type of Social Stat Action, the Social Stat scores of the submittants will be added up.
    9. If player X reaches a certain target number for a particular Social Stat a new Night Action will be generated. Please check the table with Night Actions generated by Social Stat Actions in the OP.
    10. If you want to make sure that a Night Action is generated, you may spend Hit Points (a.k.a. your sweat, your blood and your life essence) and choose a Social Stat.
    11. For every 10 HPs you spend on a Social Stat, you will increase that Social Stat by 1 point for that Night only.
    12. if you feel brave, reckless or stout, you may spend Hit Points on more than one Social Stat at once during the same night.

    lilypetal is dead:

    Akihiko Sanada


    lilypetal, you are Akihiko Sanada.

    Together with Mitsuru Kirijo, you are one of the original members of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad, a group of Persona-users that fight shadows during the Dark Hour. You are probably the best party member of Persona 3 due to your versatility (you can deal excellent Electric and Physical damage). Moreover, you are a proficient boxer and are extremely popular with the ladies. Your role will (hopefully) help villagers to train their muscles when it is time to submit Night Actions. A boxer should be used to pain, and the amount of help you will give them will be determined by the extent of the sacrifice you will undertake. Good luck!

    moomoocowjonny is dead:

    Shinjiro Aragaki


    Shinjiro Aragaki n0 role PM


    moomoocowjonny, you are Shinjiro Aragaki.

    Together with your best friend Akihiko, you are a veteran of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution squad, but you have left the team before the start of the game due to an extremely unfortunate accident. This is a pity, because when you return, you prove to be an extremely solid party member. Speaking of which: If you (the werewolf player that has received this role PM) have not played yet Persona 3, but are planning to do so, please take heed of the following advice: do not waste your time grinding with Shinjiro in order to try and level him up. I know he seems like a useful party member. He is. Just trust me and don't do it, because your time will have gone to waste.

    Anyway, due to the "mysterious" circumstances above, unfortunately, you cannot be more than a vanilla villager.


    In this game, you are a vanilla villager, and you have the following abilities:

    i) Social Stats and Persona: Please find your Social Stats and your Persona below.

    Social Stat
    Value
    Charm 4
    Guts 8
    Kindness 6
    Knowledge 6

    ii) Social Stat Actions:

    1. Every night, starting night 0, you, together with all the other players that have received a vanilla villager role PM can (and should) submit your Social Stat Actions. You have one Social Stat Action on night 0, and 5 (five) Social Stat Actions from night 1 on.
    2. Submitting your Social Stat Actions is incredibly important. Not only this may generate powerful Night Actions, but you may actually be an unconscious Power Role whose Social Stat Actions are fake and hiding a "real" Night Action.
    3. On night 0, you can (and should) target a player with the Knowledge Social Stat Action.
    4. From night 1 on, you can (and should) submit the Charm Social Stat Action, the Guts Social Stat Action, the Kindness Social Stat Action, the Knowledge Social Stat Action and the Proficiency Social Stat Action.
    5. In case this was not clear, you are allowed to target a different player per night with each of your Social Stat Actions (though you may choose to target the same player with two - or more- different Social Stat Actions during the same night). You are also allowed to self-target with your Social Stat Actions. However...
    6. You may not target the same player with the same type of Social Stat Action during consecutive nights.
    7. Your Social Stat Actions may not be tracked or watched (though they may be tampered with in other ways, such as with roleblocks) but the real Night Action your (or other peoples') Social Stat Actions may generate can be tracked and watched.
    8. Whenever you target a player X with a specific type of Social Stat Action, you assign your score for that Social Stat to that player. Other players may do the same: if multiple players target the same player X with the same type of Social Stat Action, the Social Stat scores of the submittants will be added up.
    9. If player X reaches a certain target number for a particular Social Stat a new Night Action will be generated. Please check the table with Night Actions generated by Social Stat Actions in the OP.
    10. If you want to make sure that a Night Action is generated, you may spend Hit Points (a.k.a. your sweat, your blood and your life essence) and choose a Social Stat.
    11. For every 10 HPs you spend on a Social Stat, you will increase that Social Stat by 1 point for that Night only.
    12. if you feel brave, reckless or stout, you may spend Hit Points on more than one Social Stat at once during the same night.


    Shinjiro Aragaki true role PM


    moomoocowjonny, you are Shinjiro Aragaki.

    Actually, you are way too important to the plot of Persona 3 not to get a power role, so you get to boost other peoples' Guts tests. I thought a Guts-boosting role would be fitting for you; I hope you agree.


    In this game, you are a village Unconscious Stat Booster and Baton Pass Originator, and you have the following abilities:

    i) Social Stats and Persona: Please find your Social Stats and your Persona below.

    Social Stat
    Value
    Charm 4
    Guts 8
    Kindness 6

    ii) Guts Boost:

    1. As long as you are alive, all villagers receive a +2 bonus to all Opposed Guts Tests they undertake (but not ones they are targeted with).
    2. This passive ability may not be roleblocked.


    iii) Baton Pass: Every night, starting night 1, the player that you have targeted with the Kindness Social Stat will receive the following truthful message:
    1. You have received the Baton Pass ability for the rest of the game. If you manage to give a Downed status to a player X during ITAs, you may post Pass the Baton to player Y in bold red.
    2. If player X is still downed when that happens, the next damage skill from player B that targets player X will deal double damage. This stacks with the damage player X suffers from being Downed.

    he had no way of knowing this was about to happen and was completely innocent of it but the timing was truly impeccable. there's an added layer of humor to this in his general reputation as a strong endgame wolf in mashes (while in this mash he was instead a strong endgame villager and was in fact the final death that a wolf outed to kill in itas to win the game)

    scumbaited (by scumbait) (link)
    Nominated by: Achromatic
    Seconded by: arogame123

    Okay so... this is like a really subtle GOAT performance, and it's actually not a meme at all this is nuanced $%#! okay. @Macdougall agrees with this we came up with this together.

    So Scumbait joins this game, rands town... and just 0 posts for a bit. Just doesn't do anything. So eventually she gets 4 votes on her and two of them are scum. She has baited the two scum. So we kill one of the scum and day 2 rolls around and it's like okay scumbait is in poe, she hasn't done anything.

    But then... she makes obvious town post after obvious town post and everyone relaxes. Goes 'oh, scumbait is town, cool' and she helps us solve and she has the wolf we end up killing in her bottom 2 poe.

    But then, close to the end of day 2... she starts talking about chess randomly. Just... because she feels like it, I guess? Day ends.

    Day 3 comes and the lat wolf accuses scumbait of lolcatting and votes her! She has now ensnared every mafia member into looking worse through her actions. The last wolf is chopped day 4 and town wins.



    Look at this density of wolf vote to town vote ratio when the game started with 11 other townies and 3 wolves. Then look at her name. This is the perfect execution of a gimmick, folks. I don't know if this is the right category for it but holy $%#! me and mac are BOTH convinced this is actually legitimate.

    I don't know what to do, but the thought of this being someone's alt who intentionally did this has me and mac just kind of laughing our asses off stunned at how it all played out. If nothing else, I think it deserves a nomination because of how it all played out, even if it could be coincidence.

    my wife ate my yum yum whilst i was at work (by DoctorZeus) (link)
    Nominated by: benneh
    Seconded by: Twice Shrunk

    The quoted post only captures a very brief encapsulation of the hilarity that ensued.

    @DoctorZeus re-enters thread and gives us what sounds like a bit of TMI on he and his wife's extracurriculars. The thread erupts into a storm of confusion and ... pride and happiness? for DZ. The responses to DZ's post get continually more and more funny and is end-capped by Transcend @matt) responding to DZ's initial post with his own Avatar, a very cute doggo giving a thumbs up in recognition and pride.

    If that wasn't enough, and it was, because every single time I saw that dog giving a thumbs up to that post, I nearly died laughing (quite literally, I'd go from laughing into a coughing fit I could not control!), and I then began adding/editing the thumbs up from DZ's avatar onto Matt's doggo avatar in response which he ended up applying as his new PFP. I then went and added the thumbs up to MY avatar/pfp as well and you ended up with the positive reinforcement canine triumvirate.




    Just an absolutely hilarious and (semi)wholesome event that grew organically from a randomly funny post and a very treasured moment from a mash that had many memes and great moments.

    Vulgard in Rejuvenation Mash
    Nominated by: Twice Shrunk
    Seconded by: Shad

    golden god 2.0

    perfectly executed 3p fakeclaim

    they never received any solid suspicion the entire game and were our deepest wolf because of their claim. they easily tricked players into being neighborized and fulfilling the clause in which vulgard could self-sacrifice and kill them. they did just this, winning the game d4 for the wolves by suiciding to kill 6 townies in the endgame.

    their fakeclaim was so good that i, a wolf who knew their role from d1, mixed up certain details of their role with what they claimed in thread.

    not only this, but by appearing almost perfectly as the friendly 3p neighborizer, they had access to all the information the townies in the neighborhood were getting into. not only were they our win condition towards late game, but they were our spy so we knew how who we could push and how powerwolfy we could play.

    extremely good fakeclaim and we likely would have lost if it didn't work out.

    Nominated by: neil the eel

    lemon played a great fake claim of a role that was (unbeknownst to him at the time) dead, which lead to an attempted soup kill fake and lemon having an almost perfect solve from there.

    Alison in Tacky Matrix Test Game
    Nominated by: Twice Shrunk
    Seconded by: baudib1

    You hear all sorts of horror stories about people $%#!ing up FPS and treating it in a horrible manner, but imo Alison did it pretty much perfectly here. They outed a wolf with a fake track by getting them to claim a PR, which then got cced, and then outed a semi-clear track on another townie who would go on to live in f3.

    Said wolf was a very polarizing player, with some players calling them obvious wolf and some players calling them obvious town - in fact, their counterwagon D1 was 100% town. This track helped kill a wolf who might have wasted multiple more cycles of town's time because of how many defenders + attackers they had, and allowed players to focus on solving for the other 2 wolves, which they eventually got to, and they might have not gotten there in time without this fakeclaim.

    I've been actively participating in the discussions, providing insights, and trying to analyze the information available to us. I haven't exhibited any suspicious behavior or tried to divert attention away from finding the real threats. I believe my commitment to the town's well-being is evident in my contributions.

    Before casting your votes, I urge you to consider the broader context and evaluate the substance of my interactions. Accusations without concrete evidence can lead us down a dangerous path, potentially hurting the town's chances of success. Let's work together to find the real mafia members and ensure the safety of our community. I'm here to cooperate and contribute to that goal

And Matt, just saying 'good point' without specifying what you're agreeing with doesn't contribute much either.

    Nippleman, you're deflecting with a comment about x poat reactions. Let's focus on the game. I'm not accusing anyone outright, but we need more substantial information. Keep a close eye on those who are light on details and seem to be avoiding the real discussion. We need to work together to separate the town from the mafia and make informed decisions.

    Dear Mafia Universe Award Committee,

    I am writing to nominate Benneh for the esteemed Community MVP Award for their outstanding contribution to our Turbo Mafia games played on our web forum. Their dedication, expertise, and creation of a Discord bot to streamline the entire Turbo Mafia experience have significantly enhanced the enjoyment, efficiency, and overall organization of these games.

    Benneh's recent development of the Discord bot has been nothing short of groundbreaking. This automated bot handles various aspects of the Turbo Mafia game, including recruitment, player sign-ups, game thread creation, and spectator chat management. Its implementation has revolutionized the hosting process by significantly reducing the time and effort required to administer and oversee these Turbo games.

    One cannot underestimate the impact this bot has had on the Turbo Mafia community. By automating critical tasks and streamlining the process, Benneh's creation has made hosting Turbos considerably more accessible and less time-consuming for our community members. This advancement has not only increased participation but has also attracted new players who are drawn to the seamless and efficient nature of these games.

    Benneh's commitment to ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for all participants is truly commendable. Their hard work and ingenuity have directly contributed to the growth, engagement, and inclusivity of our Turbo Mafia games. Moreover, their consistent availability, prompt responses, and willingness to provide technical support and improvements demonstrate their dedication to our community's well-being.

    By nominating Benneh as the Community MVP, we recognize their exceptional contributions and genuine impact on our Turbo Mafia games. Through their incredible ingenuity and technical expertise, they have elevated the hosting experience for both veterans and newcomers alike, fostering a strong sense of community spirit, camaraderie, and friendly competition.

    In conclusion, I wholeheartedly nominate Benneh for the Community MVP Award in recognition of their invaluable contribution to our Turbo Mafia games. Their creation of the Discord bot has revolutionized our hosting process and significantly enhanced the overall experience for all participants. Benneh's dedication, technical skills, and commitment to fostering an inclusive and enjoyable community make them a deserving candidate for this prestigious award.

    Thank you for considering Benneh's nomination. Their tireless work and innovation continue to make a significant difference in our Turbo Mafia community.

    Sincerely,

    InstantHammer (ok i admit i didn't write this all by myself but every word is true. I didnt even tell it that benneh provides consistent tech support it knew it all by itself lol)

    I'd like to nominate @Arapocalypse for Community MVP for the amount of work theyve put in during S10 champs. I know there are a lot of people involved in making this work but Ara has been the face at ground level. Helping to organise events, reaching out to players to make sure they're ready and all the work with running bets and predictions in spec chat Ara has been nothing but a hugely positive force for good during this event. Personally if it wasnt for Ara reaching out to me Id have been too disheartened to join spec chat after my game (so yes you can all blame her for my endless spam of memes.)

    Ara has simply been just right for this role, theyve put in so much effort, always been friendly and enjoyable to be around in spec chat and has (from my point of view) really helped the whole experience of season 10 be a positive one.

    Not many may know, but twice has been a huge factor in helping organise the awards and making this all possible in the first place. Being very diligent with his work, he does a great job of confirming and making sure the task is done successfully. No half-$%#! from twice.

    Additionally, he had been a pioneer for new design setups and introducing new mechanics into the game. His love for hosting/designing has inspired many others to learn from his setups and implement it in their own games.

    His presence has a positive effect on the community and his hard work/dedication to get the tasks done really shows whether it is from his hostings or managing the awards. He is the best non-mod organiser mod out there.

    Hally does a lot of behind the scenes managing to ensure MU is a safe environment (forum/discord). Their presence is extremely underrated and they lay the foundation for MU GREATNESS!!

    Additionally, they help to boost a lot of games going and help to reinvigorate some hype to the community. They are always willing to lend a new hand to newer/older players. They are the true definition of a team player.

    Lastly and most importantly, Hally is someone who you can rely on when any problems arise and is very quick to responding to any queries. They have been a tremendous help for me (and others) for hosting and answering any MU related questions.

    Hally is like the IT of MU and deserves recognition for their hard work to help maintain the hype culture of MU!

    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 changed it back to best hydra performance because most hydras only play one time in a year

    but now it's under individual awards because hydras are one slot

    so what is in the op of this post looks correct to me

    edit: ok so the copy-paste list is wrong. but the actual awards stuff is correct

    I have a lot of noms because people are nice to me but I think you’re goofy if you vote for me for best turboer.

    If I’m being generous to myself I could see being competitive in some of the other categories, but I’ll vote for Adam over myself for best mechanical player because you had to be there in the Persona WC to appreciate how much he did while I was mostly useless.

    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 if she’s maf then she’s just a borderline sociopath memer girl whose jokes are just lies and her seriousness are just lies and everything about her is a lie and if she flips maf this game and I see her say anything remotely scummy in a future game I’m just gonna death tunnel her to the ends of the earth regardless of how genuine her posts may feel

    I’m voting Poker Boomer Mash town as best town in a mash, which I know Shad disagrees with. But there are 3 players from that game nominated for best town performance and it could have been easily 4-5 more (Viggo, Shad, Benneh, Apoc, Visor etc).

    - If your Hally is genuine, you will notice a distinct morphing of their facial features into an "anime" or "chibi" style resembling the kaomoji (〃>_<;〃), their arms will turn into fingerless drumsticks and begin rapidly vibrating up and down, and they will emit various phrases such as "no bulli!" and "give me space!" and "but why!"
    - 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

    You can give me the theme and I go from there or if you got nothing in mind I'll come up with something!
