    Season 6, Game 11: Love and Hate Mafia [The Mafia Championship]

    SEASON 6, GAME 11: LOVE AND HATE MAFIA (MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP)



    Welcome to Season 6 of the Mafia Championship!

    An international forum-based tournament for Mafia players from 187 different communities

    Sponsored by Werewolf Online



    Hosted By: Our automated @Mafia Host w/ @IfGodCouldDie providing flavor
    Start Date: June 17, 2019
    Start of Day/End of Day: 10 PM EDT (03.00 UK time)
    Phase Lengths: 48/24
    Lynch Mechanics: Deadline Lynch (person with most votes is lynched at the end of the deadline). In case of a tie, one of the tied players will randomly be lynched. No lynch is a valid vote. Starting Day 2, Majority is enabled, meaning the players can end day early if someone attains a majority of the votes.
    Night Chat In Thread: No, thread will be locked during Night Phases
    Out of Thread Communication: Only the Mafia team may communicate with each other outside of the thread (24/7)
    LYLO Rules: Votes are automatically locked in at LYLO. I.e. when the game reaches a point where one more mislynch leads to a loss, you cannot change your vote once you have cast it.
    Minimum Posting Requirement: Minimum 10 posts per Game Day
    Maximum Posts Allowed: 175 posts per player per Game Day (restriction is lifted 2 hours before EOD though, so if you've reached your max you can post again at that time).
    ROLES
    13x Town
    4x Mafia


    Of the following 18 roles, 1 will randomly be discarded and the other 17 will be assigned at random to one player in the game without regard for the player's alignment. Each role is restricted to using its action only on the nights listed on the chart. The Mafia will be told which role is not present in the game.

    Role Acts On These Nights Modifier
    Watcher n1 Only Macho
    Watcher n2 Only
    Alignment Cop n2 Only 1x Ninja
    Alignment Cop n3 Only 1x Ninja
    Vigilante n2 Only
    Vigilante n3 Only
    Doctor n1, n3
    Doctor n2, n4
    Tracker n1, n3 1x Strongman
    Tracker n2, n4 1x Strongman
    Jailkeeper n1, n3
    Jailkeeper n2, n4
    Roleblocker n1, n3
    Roleblocker n2, n4
    Role Cop n1, n2, n3 1x Strongman
    Jack of All Trades
    (Role Cop, Tracker, Roleblocker)
    n1, n2, n3
    Jack of All Trades
    (Doctor, Jailkeeper, Voyeur)
    n1, n2, n3
    Voyeur n1, n2, n3, n4 1x Strongman


    Watcher: Learns who visited the target, but not what actions they did

    Alignment Cop: Learns whether the target is town or mafia, but not their role

    Vigilante: Kills the target

    Doctor: Protects the target from kills on that night only (cannot self-protect)

    Tracker: Learns who the target visited, but not what actions they did

    Roleblocker: Prevents the target from using their action on that night only

    Jailkeeper: Performs both a Doctor and Roleblocker action on the target, both protecting and blocking them (cannot self-protect)

    Role Cop: Learns the role of the target, but not whether they are town or mafia

    Jack of All Trades: Can use one of their abilities per night without repeats

    Voyeur: Learns what type of actions were performed on the target, but not who did them

    Macho: The player cannot be protected from kills

    Strongman: Kills performed with Strongman cannot be stopped in any way (serves no purpose if the player is town)

    Ninja: Night actions performed on the night that Ninja is used are invisible to investigative roles (Trackers, Watchers, and Voyeurs)

    MECHANICS
    • Role reveals at death are alignment only. You will not learn a player's exact role when they die.
    • Usage of night actions is optional, but unused actions will be lost.
    • Mafia factional kills are optional. Mafia may submit a factional kill each night, but are not required to. However, starting night 5, the factional kill will be mandatory.
    • Mafia factional kills are assigned. They can be tracked, watched, or roleblocked.
    • Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction.
    • Mafia members may perform the faction kill in addition to their regular action at the same time.

    FAQ
    Please note that Mafia Host - the Modbot - will post a FAQ as well that might contain answers to some questions that aren't covered here.

    Q: What changes to the setup have been made since the practice games?

    A: The Roleblocker role has been split into two roles, creating 18 total. One role will randomly be excluded from the setup, and the Mafia will be told which one it is. Also, both Tracker roles have gained Strongman modifiers.


    Q: What does Cycle mean?

    A: Cycle is Modbot terminology for the night(s) on which a role can act. This is an example of how some roles might appear in Role PMs and Role Cop investigations:

    Jack of All Trades (x1 Doctor, x1 Jailkeeper, x1 Voyeur) | Cycle 1, 2, 3
    Doctor | Cycle 2, 4
    Alignment Cop | x1 Ninja | Cycle 2
    Macho Watcher | Cycle 1


    Q: What do the Voyeur results look like?

    A: The Voyeur sees the type of action performed on the target, but not the exact action. Modbot groups the actions into four categories: Protection (Doctor), Manipulative (Roleblocker, Jailkeeper), Killing (Vigilante, Mafia Faction Kill), and Investigative (all others). The Voyeur does not see their own action in their results. This is a sample results PM: "theknightsofneeee had Manipulative, Investigative, Killing done to them."


    Q: What is the order of operations? What happens if a roleblocker targets a roleblocker?

    A: The automated post at the start of each game contains a FAQ (in a spoiler tag) which answers these questions and more. However, there is one important clarification: the order of operations lists Strongman Kills first because they are immune to blocks, and regular kills are listed ahead of investigative actions because investigative roles can witness killing actions, but this only means that the target is marked for death before other actions are processed. No deaths actually occur until after all actions have been processed. In other words, dying at night never stops a player's action from happening.

    The other important pieces of information are that Roleblockers act before Jailkeepers and that those roles are capable of blocking another player who attempts to use the same action. For more detailed information, please consult the aforementioned FAQ.

    Q: Can Mafia players target their teammates with night actions?

    A: Yes. The Mafia's faction kill cannot be used on a member of their own team, but all other actions (including Vigilante kills) may be used on members of their own team.


    Q: Can Doctors and Jailkeepers self-target in order to protect themselves?

    A: No.

    Q: Which roles can self-target?

    A: Only Watchers.


    Q: Are the Strongman and Ninja actions limited only to the nights listed on the chart?

    A: No. If a player is Mafia, they may use their Strongman or Ninja ability on any night.


    Q: Can players be investigated while they are jailkept?

    A: Yes. Jailkeep is a combination of roleblock and doctor, neither of which prevent investigations on the target.

    HELPFUL INFORMATION

    The boxes below contain very helpful information. If you're a first-time player, we highly recommend that you read through it all.

    MAFIA GAME RULES
    Rules may vary from community to community, so we highly advise you to carefully read these rules.

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

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



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

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

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

    If players aren't posting, the tournament organizers will always first try to prod the players in question.

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

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

    If your representative needs to sub out during a WILDCARD or FINALE, your community's backup will NOT take their place. Instead the next person who was in line to receive a wildcard or finale spot will take their place.
    As was specified in the invitation, some of you will be picked by the jury to advance to one of this season's two wildcard games. In total, the jury selects 23 players that they feel are deserving of a second chance.

    Below is a statement from the jury foreman.

    Hello and good luck to all representatives!

    We, the jury, would like to take this occasion to somewhat clarify our mission and criteria. We consist of finalists from Season 5 who have agreed to follow this year's qualifying games in order to select a number of players for the wildcard rounds who were not directly voted in but otherwise displayed skill - to give them a "second chance" of making the finals, in other words.

    This past offseason, there was some momentum to make the jury's exact criteria for advancing select players more transparent, in order to give them an idea of things that we're looking for over the course of the games.

    The problem with doing this, especially before the games start and we've really had a chance to talk to each other in detail, is that each individual juror has their own opinions of what constitutes a player worthy of advancement. Over the coming months, we'll certainly talk about it, argue about it, and come to a consensus - that's the entire point, after all - but singling out specific things we're looking for at this stage is unfortunately something we cannot do. Nor do we want to unduly influence games by having players play "unnaturally" simply because they know we're observing and judging them.

    That said, we will be examining each player's output holistically. How accurate a player's reads are, how sound a player's logic and rationale is behind their reads, how well they know and use the game's mechanics, how well they work with others in order to accomplish their team's goals, and many more traits are all things we'll be taking into account. The only question is how heavily we weigh each trait in determining who to advance to the wildcard round, and that's going to take up a great amount of our time over the coming months.

    tl;dr just play your game, try your best, good luck, and most importantly, have fun!

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

    Are you not familiar with some of the terminology used by the other players? Maybe this will help you: TERMINOLOGY EXPLANATIONS.
    DISCLAIMER ALERT
    The beauty of the Mafia Championship is that it brings communities closer together, and it provides an opportunity for players to learn new playstyles, metas and mechanics. And hopefully make new friends as well.

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

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

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

    Some advice:
    • Get an avatar. This makes it easier for everyone to tell each other apart.
    • You can choose between different forum themes (i.e. make the forum look different) in the bottom left corner of the site. Some of them are better suited for mobile devices than others.
    • Look at your settings. You can customize profanity filter, you can choose to automatically receive email notifications of new replies to the game thread if you wish, and you can edit Posts per Page (many regular MU'ers have it set to 100 per page).
    • If at all possible, try to make a habit out of checking in as regularly as you can, especially during the very beginning of the game. Don't delay your first check-in - or you will face a swamp of posts and you will feel like you're constantly trying to catch up.

    Most importantly, just do your best and have fun. The experience is mostly what you make it. There will be tryhards, there will be noobs, there will be meme posters, and there will be people just here to make friends. All are accepted, all are welcome.

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

    FINAL NOTES

    This is already covered in "Using our software" above, but since this is a role-heavy automated game with a lot of new players to the site, we want to make extra sure that people are submitting night actions correctly.

    All roles have actions to use, and these actions can only be used on certain nights. The Cycle modifier part of your role will make it clear which nights you can use your action on. For example, if your role ends with "Cycle 2, 4", you can use your night action on nights 2 and 4.

    One more thing that's important to understand is that you can pre-submit your actions for any given night on the day phase leading up to that night. So if you know that you'll be away during the night phase, or even if you're afraid that you might just forget, you can just submit it in advance. I.e. if your role has a Cycle 1 modifier, you can submit your action at any point on Day 1 - you don't need to wait until Night 1 begins.

    If you choose to not use your action on a night that you are able to use it on, you will lose it and will not be able to "save" it for later.

    How do I submit my Night Action?

    In automated games, you may submit your actions by scrolling to the bottom of the thread and selecting your target(s) from a dropdown list using the Night Action Form for the each action. When you have selected a target, press Submit, and your current target will be changed to the player you selected.

    You can change your action as many times as you'd like. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Sending your action via PM to the host does NOT work! You need to use the form!

    The Mafia Championship is, first and foremost, about building bonds between communities and creating new friendships.

    You are all here to compete, but you are also here to represent your home community. Amongst the 187 communities that are participating this year, we have many different community types, nationalities, playstyles and experience levels represented. The Mafia Championship is all about celebrating these differences and opening up an opportunity for us all to learn from each other.

    As long as you are playing to win, there is no wrong way to play this game. Some people enjoy roleplaying, some enjoy "$#@!posting", some enjoy solving the logic puzzle, and some enjoy an aggressive approach to discerning others' alignments. They are all valid playstyles.

    So we ask that, in the true spirit of the Mafia Championship, that you, as players, do your best to enjoy the experience for what it is: A melting pot of unique and wildly varying playstyles and personalities. You may grow frustrated at times. In fact, it is easy to grow frustrated when you're playing with people that you don't know, which is why we also hope that - besides following our Code of Conduct - you'll make an effort to get to know your fellow players at least a little bit. As the five previous seasons have shown, a majority of you will make several friends from this game.

    Good luck and have fun!

    1) -Rosen



    REPRESENTING: Marriland

    NATIONALITY: American (US)

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2012

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: Marriland, SC2Mafia, TBT, MafiaUniverse, EpicMafia, Town of Salem

    BIO:
    Hey guys, I'm just a washed up Mafia player who hasn't actually played the game seriously in almost three years, but here I am, taking the stage of champs once again (neat). I previously attended the Season 4 Mafia Championships, though I don't really remember much from that game other than it was particularly rowdy and $#@!-posty most of the time. I've participated in over 100 forum games in the time that I have been active, as well as thousands of setups between EM and ToS, so I'm pretty confident in my knowledge of the game. On Marriland alone, I have received 14 total accolades for my play, ranging from best backup player, best Night Actions, best Daytime play, and best player altogether. I also have a nice little meme accolade for having been killed on the 2nd Night for five (five!) games in a row, believe it or not. Typically my favorite role to play is Vanilla Town, since I don't have to stress over the Night Phase nearly as much, and I can just play my own game with little to lose upon my death. I like to be a lot more aggressive than most people like, though my play style has evolved to be a lot more question-based than simply ragging on people. That actually came about because of S4 Champs, since I was pretty much the only person not asking questions on a regular basis, and instead forming opinions based on answers to other peoples' questions. While I may be a bit rusty starting out in this game, I hope to exhibit a similar performance to what I've become accustomed to!

    BIO:
    Hey, I'm HATER. I competed in last year's championships in one of the meme-iest games of that year. My (admittedly garbage) community didn't send anyone else to play, so I became this year's de facto rep. Not that I mind, y'know, but at least last year I had a litle bit of hope someone else might show enough interest to be this year's rep. No such luck.

    A little about me? I unapologetically make walls of text and cases like my life depends on it. I firmly believe that mafia theory is about behavior, and everyone in a mafia game has a reason for everything they do or say (in some cases, it might not be a particularly good reason, but hey). Sifting through the various possible motives is what the game is all about, and the village must take it upon themselves to do so.

    I don't really know where to end this bio, seeing as how I'm writing it up at the last minute for Thingy (See, I've changed so much since last year, folks!) -- but I believe I've gone long enough with the utter bull$#@! in the pararagraph above for it to be considered an okay bio, and now I'm just trying to figure out a way to end this post in a way that doesn't sound like I'm an utter garbage fire (which I totally am not. Definitely.)

    BIO:
    WELL, WHERE TO BEGIN.I GUESS I SHOULD START FROM THE BEGINNING. I FOUND THE AMAZING GROUP THAT I PLAY WITH ORIGINALLY ON THE CLASH OF CLANS FORUMS, AND I IMMEDIATELY FELL IN LOVE WITH MAFIA. I STARTED OUT ROUGH, GOT A REPUTATION FOR ALWAYS BEING TOWN, AND ACED MY FIRST GAME AS MAFIA, DESPITE HAVING A PARTNER WHO WOULD NOT LISTEN. EVENTUALLY, THE GROUP RAN AFOUL OF THE MODERATORS, AND WE WERE FORCED TO RELOCATE. AFTER TRYING ANOTHER FORUM SITE CALLED COMMUNITY ROYALE, WE EVENTUALLY STARTED PLAYING GAMES ONE DISCORD, WHICH HAS HAD ITS UPS AND DOWNS. SADLY, ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END. WE'RE CURRENTLY RUNNING OUR "FINAL GAME" WITH THIS GROUP, AS SOME CHANGES ARE COMING AND PLAYERS ARE STARTING TO LEAVE. WHILE WE'RE STILL GOING TO KEEP PLAYING, WE DON'T KNOW TO WHAT EXTENT THAT WILL CONTINUE, AND WE FIGURED THAT HONORING THE TIMES THAT WE ALL HAD TOGETHER WOULD BE A NICE TRIBUTE AND FAREWELL TO SOME PLAYERS. I DON'T ENTIRELY KNOW HOW I GOT HERE, BUT I'M DETERMINED TO DO MY BEST. I'D LIKE TO DEDICATE THIS GAME AND ALL FUTURE GAMES IN THIS CHAMPIONSHIP TO THE SMIRK NATION MAFIA CREW, BOTH NEW AND OLD. KEEP ON PLAYING, GUYS, AND I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST.

    SOME THINGS ABOUT ME YOU SHOULD KNOW: I'M BUSY, AND MY D1 PLAY ISN'T THE BEST. THAT BEING SAID, AFTER THAT FIRST DAY, I PLAY FAIRLY AGGRESSIVELY WITH UNRELENTING PRESSURE (WITHOUT SOLID EVIDENCE, THAT IS). I PLAY FAIRLY ANALYTICALLY, AND WILL GENERALLY PUT DEFENDING MYSELF SECOND TO ATTACKING IF I HAVE A TARGET. I DON'T HAVE A PREFERRED FACTION, AND PEOPLE HAVE SAID THAT I DO WELL AS BOTH.

    THAT'S PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING, I GUESS.

    Hey all, I'm really excited to be playing in the Championships again this year. I just hope I don't wake up to 800 posts on Day 1 again. My playstyle is to ignore most of the bull$#@! and find specific moments or trends in people's play to form reads. I also like to have fun when I play, which is what got me killed last time.

    If you like card games, I would highly recommend checking out the game that my home site is based on at www.elementsthegame.com. We are a small but dedicated community with many different types of events going on, including, of course, mafia.

    I'll end here with my favorite quote: "Linkcat has evolved from hypermafia lord to $#@!lord extreme and it's the most entertaining thing in the world." -killsdazombies

    Fun fact? I'm...really not that fun lol. I'm used to longer, slower-paced role madness games, so this will be a nice change of pace and I hope to learn a lot from this opportunity.

    As for Mafia experience, I'm not the most experienced player out there but I've got good instincts and more often than not I follow them–which has put me in a pickle a couple times actually, but all part of learning I guess haha.

    I just want to include as a disclaimer that something I like to do is make a case on someone and vote a different person in the same post. I personally think it's a nice way to pressure multiple people at once and to get reactions, but I've been under fire for it before so full disclaimer before the game even starts.

    All that being said, good luck everyone! Looking forward to playing with you all.

    Howdy! I've only been playing mafia for a year, so I don't have many impressive plays. I do know I ironically did the best in my first game; I outed the whole scum team (4 people)! But town lost anyways.... ba dum tss

    I think I'm more of a passive player, as I like to get more of a feel on people before I push hard on them... I'm really hesitant LOL This means that I have some trouble voting, but once I have someone as a scumread? I'll die on that hill - literally, haha! I also like to speak my mind during games, so some of my posts may seem like filler, but it's really just me trying to comprehend everything. I feel like a lot of people have trouble reading me because of that, but I'm always looking to improve - that's why I joined this game!

    I'm definitely a Kirby main in Smash, and I'll eat all the cake you give me. But I don't like stawberries :/

    Hope you have as much fun as I will!

    BIO:
    About three years ago I was talked into playing mafia by a couple of friends on PerC, and I haven't really looked back since. I've met a lot of cool people through mafia and made some really good friends because of it. I like the challenge the game presents and the fact that no two games are really ever the same. Different people, different setups, different roles, all make each game a unique experience.

    If I had to describe my playstyle in one word it would be: inquisitive. I ask a lot of question. A lot. Especially early in the game. The first time I play with someone, that's one of the most common comments I get.

    My favorite flavor of ice cream is chocolate chip cookie dough.

    I was also told by <redacted> I should include lyrics from a Beach Boy's song in my bio:
    "I'm gettin' bugged driving up and down the same old strip
    I gotta find a new place where the kids are hip
    My buddies and me are getting real well known
    yeah, the bad guys know us and they leave us alone"

    BIO:
    Hello, my name’s Wyatt, and I’m currently 17 years old. I’ve been playing mafia for four years now, but this is my first year playing forum mafia competitively! You may know me from Town of Salem as xWyatt or Cypher, when I played that quite actively in 2017. I’ll try my hardest to win, but I think the biggest importance is to have fun, and to accept whatever result may happen (except gamethrowers, man I get salty at those).

    People may say people with anime profile pictures do not deserve opinions. They’re 100 percent correct, don’t listen to anyone with an anime profile picture. More times than not, they’re godfather trying to mess with you.

    If my faction loses the game, I can be the one person you can throw toxic comments at, even if it’s not my fault (or if it is, cause people make plenty of mistakes)! I’ll be your scapegoat if that makes you feel more emotionally stable! (Seriously though, don’t be toxic, it just makes your status plummet compared to all your peers.)

    Anyways, I wish all my competitors the best of luck, but I wish myself the most amount of it! Good luck, and have fun!

    FAQ

    Are you unsure about how actions are processed or how roles interact with each other? Then read more here:

    ORDER OF OPERATIONS

    Night actions are processed in this order:

    Strongman kills
    Roleblocks
    Jails
    Doctors
    Bodyguards
    Kills
    Investigations
    Backups

    When an action was submitted during the night will never matter when the actions are processed.

    ACTION FEEDBACK

    These are the results you will get when you submit certain actions.

    Non-investigative roles when they submit an action (they also receive this if they are roleblocked):

    Your action on Player A was received.
    Investigative actions return results even if the target dies on the same night.

    Actions that count as visits are counted as visits even if the actor dies on the same night.

    Investigative roles (Tracker, Cop, etc.) when roleblocked:

    Your action on Player B did not return any results.
    Trackers when tracking a person that didn't visit anyone (or if they targeted a Ninja):

    Player C did not visit anyone.
    Watchers when watching a person that wasn't visited by anyone (or only visited by a Ninja):

    Player D was not visited by anyone.
    Alignment Cop when investigating a town-aligned player (or a Godfather):

    Player E is Town
    Watcher when watching a person that was visited by multiple people:

    Player F was visited by Player G, Player H, Player I
    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How do I submit my action?
    Use the form below the game thread. If your role has a night action, the form will only be visible during night phases. It's not possible to submit actions in advance of the night phase.

    What does it mean if the Mafia Host says that night kills are assigned?
    In games with this setting turned on, the member of the mafia team that made the most recent night kill submission will be the one assigned to the kill, which means that the kill can be blocked if a Town Roleblocker or Town Jailkeeper target the mafia player in question. Similarly, the kill can be tracked and watched by Town Trackers and Town Watchers. If this setting isn't turned on, then it doesn't matter who the last person to submit the mafia kill is, as the kill is unblockable and untrackable in this case.

    Where do I find example role PM's?
    This thread contains example role PM's for all roles currently supported by the Modbot as well as information on the various modifiers. Here you will find the answers to a lot of questions not covered in this FAQ section.

    Which roles can self-target?
    Only Watchers are able to use their ability on themselves at night. This means that Doctors or Jailkeepers aren't able to protect themselves, for example.

    Which roles are not able to target the same players on consecutive nights?
    Doctors, Jailkeepers, and Roleblockers are not allowed to target the same player twice in a row. Everyone else is, including Bodyguards. Note that this non-consecutive restriction still holds true even if one of these three roles were blocked the night before when targeting the person that they're attempting to target again.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A and Jailkeeper B or Roleblocker A and Roleblocker B target each other (and are not targetted by other blockers)?
    In the case of Jailkeepers, they will block and protect each other. In the case of Roleblockers, they also block each other. This means that the two players are trackable to each other that night by Trackers and Watchers. It also means that if one of them is mafia and happens to simultaneously be the one submitting the factional kill that night in a game with assigned kills, then this kill is blocked. This same principle applies to longer loops. I.e. in a A > B > C > D > A loop, everyone is blocked.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Jailkeeper A?
    Jailkeeper A will be blocked in this scenario. Refer to the order of operations: Roleblocks process before jails.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Player C?
    As stated above, roleblocks process before jails, so Roleblocker B will successfully block Player C. I.e. Jailkeeper A will fail to block Roleblocker B, but will still protect Roleblocker B.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Jailkeeper B and Jailkeeper B targets Jailkeeper C (who isn't targeting any of the former two)?
    In this case, Jailkeeper A would prevent Jailkeeper B's block from occuring, meaning that Jailkeeper C's action is not blocked.

    If an X-Shot role is blocked while using a shot, do they lose that shot forever?
    Yes. A 1-shot Vigilante being blocked while attempting to kill someone will not have their shot refunded.

    If someone with a Strongman modifier kills Player A who is protected by Bodyguard B, who dies?
    Player A will die, and Bodyguard B will survive.

    Can a mafia team choose not to kill anyone during a night?
    The host can determine this using the Mafia Factional Kill setting. Kills can be mandatory, optional, or disabled altogether.

    The default is No. The mafia factional kill is compulsory. This is done in order to avoid deadlocked games where the town keeps no lynching and the mafia refuses to submit a kill. If the game has assigned kills, it will be randomized which member of the team is carrying out the kill.

    If there is only one mafia member left in a game without assigned kills, can the mafia factional kill then be blocked and/or tracked?
    No.

    Can the mafia submit a kill for one of their own members?
    No.

    If I kill someone, does their night action, if they have one, still succeed?
    Yes, killing someone doesn't prevent them from performing their night action (unless they investigated someone, in which case they will not receive a report). Refer to the order of operations: All kills happen at the end of the night, and everyone pulls the trigger simultaneously.

    Can individual night actions be proxied on mafia teams?
    No. If the mafia team has a Mafia Roleblocker, for example, and they want to use this role's action, then the player occupying that slot must submit the action themselves.

    If a Lover is shot during the night, while the other Lover is protected that night, does the other Lover still die?
    Yes. It's not possible to prevent a Lover from dying of love sickness.

    If a Bodyguard protects Lover A, while Lover B is shot during that same night, what happens?
    A dies of love sickness and Bodyguard lives.

    If there are any Innocent Childs in the game, are these confirmed in the thread right when the game begins?
    No. Innocent Childs are able to decide themselves when or if they wish to have the Modbot confirm their role and alignment in the thread. Note that this is exclusively a day action and that it can take up to one minute for the Modbot to process the action.

    What results are Alignment Cops, Full Cops and Role Cops given if they investigate a Godfather or a Miller?
    Alignment Cops are told "Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia" for Millers. Full Cops are told "Vanilla Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia Goon" for Millers. Role Cops are told "Godfather" for Godfathers and "Miller" for Millers.

    Can Role Cops tell the difference between a Vanilla Town and Mafia Goon?
    No. They are told "Vanilla" when investigating either of these two roles.

    If I roleblock someone with a Bulletproof Vest, will that nullify the effect of the vest?
    No. Bulletproof Vests are passive modifiers that cannot be blocked from working.

    If I roleblock Masons, Neighbors or Lovers with out of thread communication privileges, can I prevent them from talking at night?
    No.

    If I roleblock a Godfather, will they still be revealed as being town-aligned to Alignment Cops and Full Cops that night?
    Yes.

    USING THE SOFTWARE

    Are you wondering about how to vote, submit night actions or multi-isolate players? Read about this and more here:

    VOTING BBCODES

    Our forum votes for someone by using the vote tags: [V]Thingyman[/V]. Preview:

    ##Vote Thingyman

    Make sure that you spell out the full, correct name. Abbreviations or misspelled names will not be registered by the Modbot.

    To unvote, use the tags: [UNV][/UNV] . When unvoting you do not need to enter the name of the person that you are unvoting. Preview:

    ##Unvote

    VOTING BUTTONS

    You can also quickly vote for someone by clicking on the box with a checkmark icon, which will bring up an alphabetized dropdown containing the names of living players:



    This will insert [V][/V] tags with the name of the player you selected in the dropdown, perfect every time.

    Click the empty checkbox button to insert [UNV][/UNV].

    SUBMITTING NIGHT ACTIONS

    If you have a night action, simply submit this at night by scrolling to the bottom of the game thread. Here you will find a night action form like this:



    Click the dropdown and select the player whom you wish to use your night action on. You can change it as many times as you wish before the deadline expires.

    CALLING UP A VOTECOUNT

    Votecounts will appear automatically at various intervals, but you can also call up votecounts yourself by following these steps:

    First, you need to apply to join "Mafia Game Hosts" under Permission Groups.

    Second, once your request has been approved, you will be able to call up votecounts by simply pushing the "Post Votecount" button in the top right corner of any game thread that you'd like an updated votecount for.


    VIEWING VOTE HISTORY

    There are three ways to access the vote history for any game.

    1. Click on the "Vote History" button in the top right corner of the game thread:

    2. Click on the "View Vote History" link, which accompanies all votecounts:

    3. Click on Modbot in the top forum menu. This will give you a list of ongoing and completed games:



      Next, simply click on "Vote History" to view all votes for that game.

    Following any of the above three steps will bring you to an overview like this one:



    Click on a Voter's username to view all of the votes by their slot.

    Click on a Target's username to view all of the votes for their slot.

    ISOLATING A PLAYER'S POSTS

    If you wish to read a player's posts in isolation, simply click on "ISO" in the top right corner of one of that player's posts in the relevant thread as illustrated here:



    Alternatively, you can access a player's posts in isolation by clicking on the number next to "Replies:" in the forum lobby.



    Doing so will pull up a window listing the post counts for everyone who has posted in that thread. You access someone's posts in isolation by simply clicking on the number next to "Posts:" for that person.



    The ISO view itself has Quote and Multi-Quote buttons inside it, which will make it very easy to quickly quote a lot of a player's posts for analysis or commentary:


    MULTI-ISOLATING

    If you wish to read not just one player's posts, but you want to ISO multiple players, then click the "Multi ISO" button to the left of "Game Tools" and select the players in question as shown here:


    MULTI-QUOTING WHILE THREAD IS LOCKED

    Note that you can multi-quote posts from even locked game threads. This is useful for when you wish to reread the game and do work during night phases.

    After quoting the relevant posts, you simply open a different, opened thread and press "Go Advanced". Then add the quotes to your post by clicking the prompt below the post area as shown here:



    Now, of course you can't post your work in the game thread while the thread is locked, but you can copy paste and save your work to a local file or the cloud and have it ready to post the very next day phase (if you're still alive, that is).

    BOOKMARKS

    Whenever you open a game thread, you are able to bookmark posts. This is for many players an important tool for keeping track of and remembering vital pieces of information, reads, claims etc.

    Also, note that these bookmarks are saved to your user account, meaning that it eliminates the trouble associated with keeping notes between different computers/devices.

    If you want to bookmark a post, you simply scroll to the post that you want to bookmark and press "Set Bookmark" as shown here:



    This will call up 5 different colored icons (Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, and Black) on the right side of the post in question. You can click any of these icons, which will then prompt you to include a note for the post.

    If you don't want to include a note, you don't have to - just leave it blank. The color coding in itself can be a valuable tool. Maybe you want to use Red bookmarks for posts that you find suspicious, Green bookmarks for posts that you find townie, Black bookmarks for posts containing claims, or whatever system you can think of that will be helpful to you.



    Once this is done, you have now successfully bookmarked a post with a certain color and maybe even a note. If you wish to remove the bookmark again, click on "Unset Bookmark".

    How do I access bookmarks?

    There are two ways to access your bookmarks.
    1. Inside a game thread, you can access the bookmarks for that specific game by simply right clicking on the "Bookmark" button and opening the link.

      This will bring you to a separate page that is automatically filtered to only show bookmarks from the game thread that you accessed the page from.
    2. You can also access your bookmarks by going to Features in the site's top menu:



      This will bring you to a page where no bookmarks are shown by default. However, you have several filtering options.

      You can filter by Game, by Player and by Color - and all of them at once if you so wish.

      Here's an example of filtering by only red bookmarks in one specific game:



    If you want to be taken directly to one of your bookmarked posts, you just click the post number.

    How do I quote bookmarks?

    You can also multi-quote bookmarked posts by clicking the little "+" button seen above on the far right side of each bookmark.

    Once you have multi-quoted all the bookmarked posts that you want to quote, you will then have to go to the game thread in which you wish to quote the bookmarked posts.

    Here you have two ways of quoting the posts.

    1. Click on "Reply With Quote" on another post as shown here:



      You will then probably want to delete the last post quoted in the reply box, but otherwise you should be good to go.
    2. Or you can do the more smooth option and click the "Reply To Thread" button at the top and bottom of the game thread - as shown here:



      By doing this you will open up a reply box containing only your multi-quoted bookmarked posts.

    Welcome to the game everyone!

  10. ISO #10
    Welcome to Love and Hate Mafia. Flavours will be a collection of things I love and hate. I mulled over different things that I could use for flavour but couldn't find the passion to write for the ideas I had, so what better compromise than to write about the two emotions that invoke the most passion from anyone. Balancing things in life is important, unless you are talking about the things you love and hate. If you have too much hate, your life will be miserable. Too much love and… well, you can't have too much love. I hope you guys can rid this game of the hate and help love prevail, otherwise hate will reign supreme and love will die.

  11. ISO #11
    Hello all!
    I love colors. And dinosaurs. So I hope there's at least some of those in the Love and Hate game.

    Anyone have any previous games they'd be willing to share from both alignments? I figure there's decent odds that we'll want to see player meta in the mid-late game so we might as well get it out of the way early, so it can be looked back at and referenced later.

    I can start pulling up some of mine if people like the idea.

    Gonna keep that one close to the chest for now. No need to make the targeting job for maf easier.

    Since yeah, a lot of the good players will become clear fairly quickly, but some of them might try laying low D1 to avoid a potential early maf kill. And at that point we'd just be pointing out these people while they're unlikely to gain doctor protection in the previously stated scenario of laying low.

    Errrr, lets not probe for meta in the early game. It'll make the mafia more self aware, and in turn harder to catch.

    If you wanna scum hunt that route I'd say wait until mid-game.

    I'm fine with either option. I don't know how busy this game will be, but based on some of the others, I'm not sure if people will have the time or inclination to keep up with this game and read a bunch of meta on people at the same time.

    An early mafia kill for a player who points out wolves is not a shame. Each one of us shouldn't lay low thinking at this.

    Frankly i am playing for fun, my homesite's memeber who voted me did it because the joy of playing is obvious for me. So i will never lay low in mafia on purpose.

    Hello, one of my many fascinations with mafia is seeing the variety of play styles people use when approaching the game. I do acknowledge that this is partially a selfish desire to probe for such info, but I'd like to say that getting a quick profile for other players can be useful. Its easier for me to "work" with somebody when I "get" what kind of player they are. So please take a second to respond to the questions below:

    Outline your typical playstyle with these questions:
    Intuitive, or analytical?
    Independent, or Collaborative?
    Aggressive, or Passive?


    (also yeah, yeah, some players may have talked about their playstle in their bio's. There are also several that didn't use it to that affect.)

    -/-/-

    To answer my own questions:
    1)Intuitive
    2)Collaborative
    3)Passive

    I _can_ play the other side of the spectrum to varying degrees of success, but often at the expense of my long-term energy and desire to play. I enjoy myself much more when I take up a supportive role in discussion.

    Howdy, folks! Just checking in for now, it's relatively late where I am (10 PM... I need my beauty sleep ) but I'm excited to play this game! Everyone in this roster is new to me, so this should be fun!

    1. Both, to some degree. I tend to rely more on intuition early game, and then once we have a bit more to go on, I probably rely more heavily on analysis.
    2. Generally collaborative, but I'll go against the grain if I disagree with the group consensus.
    3. Again, depends a bit on game state and how strongly I feel about my reads, but I don't think I'm particularly aggressive or passive.

    I'm not sure I agree with this interpretation. Since fundamentally town tends to be far more free with their words and how they overall present themselves. Mafia, on the other hand, tends to hedge, constantly policing their words to give off certain impressions, leaving backdoors for themselves whenever they do an in thread play, etc.

    And that sort of thing is noticeable if people are looking for it, and knowing if that is indeed the normal type of mafia play a person uses is invaluable for reads, and trying to get correct reads as early as possible is vital, considering how the majority of the previous games with this setup have gone so far.

    Yes, mafia could arguably fake it better, but we would able to look for the individual tells of a player far more in-depth and notice discrepancies and I think that is more than worth the tradeoff.

    Still though, not going to put out games to meta read until we have a decent consensus on we want them out in the open.

Its easier for me to "work" with somebody when I "get" what kind of player they are. So please take a second to respond to the questions below:

    Outline your typical playstyle with these questions:
    Intuitive, or analytical?
    Independent, or Collaborative?
    Aggressive, or Passive?


    (also yeah, yeah, some players may have talked about their playstle in their bio's. There are also several that didn't use it to that affect.)

    -/-/-

    To answer my own questions:
    1)Intuitive
    2)Collaborative
    3)Passive

    I _can_ play the other side of the spectrum to varying degrees of success, but often at the expense of my long-term energy and desire to play. I enjoy myself much more when I take up a supportive role in discussion.
    Intuitive, or analytical? My first intuition is right in a high level all i need to do is to follow it. If my logic is there too i am pleased with the result.
    Independent, or Collaborative? Both, i like teamwork but i usually don't sheep reads.
    Aggressive, or Passive? Passive aggresive.

    1. Heavily more analytical than intuitive.
    2. Healthy mix of both and largely depends on if I agree with the general consensus.
    3. Tend to be slightly passive earlier and then become more aggressive after the initial phase when there is more info to work with.

    I'm not sure I agree with this interpretation. Since fundamentally town tends to be far more free with their words and how they overall present themselves. Mafia, on the other hand, tends to hedge, constantly policing their words to give off certain impressions, leaving backdoors for themselves whenever they do an in thread play, etc.

    And that sort of thing is noticeable if people are looking for it, and knowing if that is indeed the normal type of mafia play a person uses is invaluable for reads, and trying to get correct reads as early as possible is vital, considering how the majority of the previous games with this setup have gone so far.

    Yes, mafia could arguably fake it better, but we would able to look for the individual tells of a player far more in-depth and notice discrepancies and I think that is more than worth the tradeoff.

    Still though, not going to put out games to meta read until we have a decent consensus on we want them out in the open.
    Did i understood correct, do you put links for games only if everyone else does it? Is not like everyone will put links in the same time.

    I can start pulling up some of mine if people like the idea.

    I'm fine with either option. I don't know how busy this game will be, but based on some of the others, I'm not sure if people will have the time or inclination to keep up with this game and read a bunch of meta on people at the same time.


    I am not a meta fan, any good player self aware of meta can fake it, but i provided my own because is here.
    That's fair. I guess on my home site, people rely pretty heavily on meta, so I can understand why Pawn is asking about it, particularly if they're used to reading via meta. I do have one town game on MU for anyone who does care.

    BIO:
    [Stamen, and Mafia scum contain the bulk of my games. VGF was a one-off under another alias, and T&D was a dumpster fire.

    I really like finding the niche that town needs for healthy game flow, and filling it to the best of my ability. I am a fan of experimentation, and will try radically varying tactics from time to time. I wouldn’t consider myself to be an especially great player. More like mostly average with rare instances of displaying high skill, (or is it luck?)

    Semi controversial stances I take: Sheeping isn’t awful, activity isn’t highly Ai, town hunting is as viable as scum hunting, and NKA/VCA IS USEFUL (in the late game)]

    Thanks for posting. Curious about the bolded. Do you mean activity isn't highly AI for you or in general?

    No. I meant more that unless we have a rough majority agreeing that sharing meta is a good idea, I'll hold off on doing so. I'm not expecting everyone to all post links at once or anything like that.

    (To ToR, since multi-quoting is a nightmare on phone) And less that it's something that is used often on my main site, and more that it's a useful tool that town can leverage to its advantage. Mafia is the informed minority while we are the uninformed majority. Reducing that information gap in any possible way early on is useful, so I think making it available is good for us.

    And Michelle is absolutely right, good scum can and will subvert their meta to try and hide things. But there is no guarantee that every scum team member is a good one and even if they try and hide things it's basically impossible to do so perfectly. They will always slip up eventually.

    You can post it if you want but to rely on meta both scum and town games are needed.
    Do you have so many posts in just one game?
