Discussion in 'Mafia Lounge' started by Rohan, Dec 4, 2016.
If it's after stardew valley and the anni game sure. But during these I'll be unable to play.
I encourage you to at least look at the setup form Surreptitious: The game of spies to decide whether this is the kind of game you want to play or not.
Special note that on the new game that your role may change but your alignment will never change.
I will host a Turbo Mafia Game tomorrow. Please be ready to play if you are interested. I will need at least 6 players. Countdown for when I will post Game Thread: https://www.timeanddate.com/countdo...=Rohan's+Mafia+Game+Start!&font=cursive&csz=1.
How long are you expecting it to last?
10 Minutes Twilight - 20 Minutes Day Phase 1 - 20 Minutes Day Phase 2 - 20 Minutes Day Phase 3
So expect a game of 70 minutes. It might go to Day Phase 4 but that would be rare.
About the recent update, the games have been divided into three categories : Town Of Salem, Mafia and Assassin Games. I decided to do it now because doing it later will cause a lot of organisational issues and headaches. You can apply the prefix according to your game type.
If Mafia section gets high participation rates, separate calender's and archive sections will be made.
So what does everyone think of the new notice?
All the pending mafia game prizes have been distributed!
@Rohan Is your cult game cancelled indefinitely as in it's done, or is it to be placed on hold until after Globear's is done? If the former, I'll keep it up in the Calendar, if the latter I'll put a game up to go after Globear.
I've added a temporary policy mandating that games be no larger than 8 players for now, until if and when section activity improves.
Put my game there for now.
INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 5)
It is with great pleasure that I hereby invite your community to take part in Season 5 of the Mafia Championship.
The Mafia Championship is an annual forum tournament series that pits representatives from various online Mafia (aka Werewolf) communities against one another as they compete to determine the Internet’s greatest forum Mafia player. Each participating community democratically elects one person to represent them and be their “Champion”.
The whole thing started back in 2013, and since then more than 225 different communities and 50+ different nationalities have been represented.
I hope it sounds like a fun and exciting event
1. DO YOU ACCEPT THE INVITE?
If your community wishes to participate, please confirm your participation to me as soon as you can to ensure yourselves a spot.
If you agree to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is May 1. If this is too soon for you to decide on anyone, let me know and we can work something out.
The games will take place on Mafia Universe. If it’s okay, I can link directly to the general discussion thread regarding this topic on Mafia Universe.
You may decide yourselves how you want to elect your representative, but we highly recommend some sort of democratic process (public nominations followed by a poll usually works out well).
In addition to electing a representative, you should also name an alternate who will be asked to step in if the first choice needs to back out.
Your representative should be prepared for having to read upwards of 500 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. Additionally, there’s a requirement that each player must make at least 10 posts per Game Day. Only active players should apply/participate. I repeat: Your chosen player needs to be able to promise a good amount of activity on a daily basis.
2. SEASON 5 FORMAT
The tournament structure
170 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
10 Qualifying Games will be played, consisting of 17 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifying Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. 1st place will advance directly to the Finale Game (i.e. 10 of the 17 finalists are found this way), while the 2nd places will advance directly to one of the two Wildcard Games.
A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 4 will discuss and vote to determine 25 players in total deserving of a second chance: 1 will advance directly to the finale, and the 24 other players will play in 2 Wildcard Games along with the 2nd places that advanced directly to these. From each game, three players will directly advance to the Finale Game based on a post-game player vote.
The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall receive the title of Season 5 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.
The setup explained very briefly (more details on host site)
This (view picture below) is a semi-open grid setup meant for 17 players: 4 mafia versus 13 townies. First you randomly select a number to decide the mafia team's composition of Power Roles (1-2), then you randomly select a letter to decide the town's composition of Power Roles (A-E). Fill in the number of Vanilla Townies needed to make the town team have 13 members total, and you have your setup.
*Town Jack of All Trades: 1x Vigilante, 1x Roleblocker, 1x Tracker.
Relevant mechanics info
Deadline Lynch w/ Option for Majority starting Day 2. I.e. when day timer runs out, person with most votes will be lynched. However, day can also be ended early (starting Day 2) if there is ever a majority of votes on one person.
If there is a tied lynch, one of the tied players will be randomly lynched.
No outside communication. I.e. you may not contact the other players outside of the thread (unless you are Mafia and wish to speak with your teammates).
Phase Lengths and Deadlines will be up to the players themselves (I’ll organize them into games with deadlines that suit their preferences).
Thread is locked during Night Phases.
3. SEASON 5 TIMELINE
There will be 10 Qualifying Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates during the months of May and June. So in other words, as long as your representative can play sometime during that period, they should be good and I’ll make sure they get scheduled into a game that suits their schedule well. I.e. if your rep is busy until June, that isn’t a problem.
Wildcard games will be played in July, and the Finale Game sometime in August/September (whenever we can work out something that suits everyone).
If you want to get in contact with me ASAP, you can find me on Discord (Thingyman#6075).
Talked with the other managers
Said I should go. Maybe I can poach some players over so we can actively play mafia again
Best of luck for the tournament.
Hot damn. Where are the games at?
