    Default Invitation to Werewolf Championship season 7

    Hi guys!

    I see that there has been some recent activity on these forums, with you having a game back in August and doing sign-ups for a new one. If you need just a couple more to fill that game, by the way, and you wouldn't mind some company, you can advertise the game here.

    Amazingly, you guys have only participated in one season of the Mafia Championship before (I say amazingly because I feel like I've seen several of you around regularly). That was when lilrascal represented you guys way back in season 2.

    Now I'm hoping the timing is there for you guys to make a return to the series. So I ask you: Is there any of you who would be up for the challenge of representing FTR at the Werewolf Championship? Or is there any of your fellow community members who you think should do it?

    Full invitation below.

    _______________

    INVITATION TO THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP (SEASON 7)

    Ahoy there!

    I’m very excited to invite your community to participate in Season 7 of the Mafia Championship.

    The Mafia Championship is an annual forum-based 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 tournament first started back in 2013. Since then, 320+ different communities and 50+ different nationalities have been represented.

    It’s a super fun event that has created many new friendships and close bonds between communities. I hope that you would be interested in taking part

    1. DO YOU ACCEPT THE INVITATION?

    If your community wishes to participate, please confirm your participation to Lissa as soon as you can to ensure yourselves a spot. Currently, the plan is to accommodate 150 communities this season. If there is further interest, additional communities may sign up as substitutes; generally there are some replacements needed both before and during games.

    If your community agrees to participate, the deadline for selecting your representative is April 27, but the sooner the better.

    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.

    Important notes
    • 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 500-600 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 7 FORMAT

    The tournament structure
    • 150 communities will participate, each sending one representative.
    • QUALIFIERS: 10 Qualifier Games will be played, consisting of 15 players each. I.e. every representative plays in one Qualifier Game. The players themselves vote post-game to determine who is deserving of advancement. 1st and 2nd place will advance to the Semifinal Games.
    • SEMIFINALS: A Jury consisting of finalists from Season 6 will select 25 additional players to advance to the three Semifinal Games. From each game, five players will advance to the Finale Game based on a post-game player vote, just like in the qualifying phase.
    • THE FINALE: The Finale Game is played. Once it has completed, the players vote to determine who shall receive the title of Season 7 Champion and a winner’s certificate signed by Dmitry Davidoff, the creator of mafia.


    This year’s setup: JOAT^2
    The setup is called JOAT^2 and features 15 players.

    The setup consists of the following:

    3x Mafia Goon
    2x Town Jack Of All Trades (9x Doctor, 9x Motion Detector, 9x Tracker)
    10x Vanilla Townie


    Note that the Jacks Of All Trades must use all three actions before repeating an action, i.e. they are rotating. This does not mean they must use the actions in the same order every time.

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

    3. SEASON 7 TIMELINE

    There will be 10 Qualifier Games, and your representative plays in just one of these. They will have start dates ranging from late April to mid-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.

    The Semifinal Games will be played in July, and the Finale Game sometime in August/September (whenever we can work out something that suits everyone).

    Do you wish to spectate and/or talk with players from other communities?
    We have a big server on Discord (1,000+ members) for those that want to spectate and talk about these games. The representatives will be added to this channel too after they die. Or if you just want to chat with people from other communities, we have a general chat too that is unrelated to the Mafia Championship.

    1) CLICK HERE TO JOIN: https://discord.gg/CwDKmjQ

    2) Upon joining the server, please inform us of who you are and which community you are from. We will then give you the necessary permissions to see the spectator channel. This is necessary to avoid the wrong people (the representatives and their backups) joining the channel.

    You don't need to have Discord installed in order to join the channel, as there is a web version.

    Do you want to have your own private community spectator chat?
    This is definitely both allowed and encouraged. However, I ask that you please do everything possible to make this chat private and inaccessible to your representative, backup and your representative's opponents. It's important that your thoughts and comments don't influence the game. In other words, please don't post about the game in public threads -- this is very important.

    Mafia Championship Podcast
    For the first time ever, there will be a Mafia Championship podcast.

    The first episode goes live on Twitch at Sunday 4 PM Eastern. It will feature 3-4 former winners.

    It will go live here, if you are interested: https://www.twitch.tv/mrthingyman/

    Where do I get more info?
    Refer to this thread: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...al-Information

    This thread will tell you all the details about this season. It also includes a list of the 165 participating communities and their representatives.

    I wouldn't expect my usual high volume game. Depends if it sucks me in or not I guess. But generally I prefer to be playing poker. It's a relatively small game so that should mean it won't be overwhelming at least. I hope I'm a villager.

    Geez. I'm at EOD1 and I have no idea who ong is. I've ruled a few out, as they've used phrases I haven't heard ong use, but I can't put my finger on anyone that I'd feel confident about.


    That lynch of eevee was just .
    FFS, there's a no-poster on D1 (dev), and they lynched someone actively engaging and interacting.


    [redacted all other reads on this game, as it is ongoing]


    Well, if ongie is dev, then I can feel better about not finding his tone in the thread. I just find it hard to put "I forgot the WW game was starting" as something that would happen to ong.

    I'm pretty much done reading this game if Phighter's still in it on D3.

    What a piece of work.

    I'm splatt. My "Ireland" location might have thrown you. That's a relic from when I set the account up, I didn't want baudib to know who I am for my first game there.

    Ong, discussion of ongoing games is not allowed, even off site. Pulling quotes is prob OK but be careful

    I've been watching from the MU spec chat discord and will catch up after the game

    Pulling quotes is fine. If thingyman disagrees, please pm me and I won't do it. I'm not going to comment about the game.

    Also, please don't post any reads. I know it goes without saying but it doesn't hurt to say anyway.

    Don't even post guesses as to whether I'm a wolf or villager. It can't affect me, but if someone in the game reads this thread and sees people who know me posting their read, that can be influential.

    luco, you should invite mojo to the discord so he can talk about the game in an appropriate place.

    That same discord link is in the opening post of every champs game, including game 3.

    It only takes you to the general MU discord, you have to request access to spec chat from there

    Oh ok, no problem then. I obviously didn't hit the link but if it's ok in public, my mistake.

    Darn. That was my top pick, but the Ireland thing was throwing me. Now I wish I'd committed to the guess.

    lol.

    splatt is a nickname my friend gives me, it rhymes with Matt. Her name is Becky and she sometimes wears glasses, and is kinda small, so I call her specky. With those names we'd make a great couple, but she's married to one of my best friends, with children, and lives in New Zealand, so splatt and specky will never be a thing!

    "Problem with splatt is I’m always suspect of him at the start of days when reading back on stuff but then when he starts posting I start thinking he’s town. Think I’ve done that like 2 days in a row lmao "

    *flashbacks*
    lol



    Congrats on the win, ong/splatt

    That was a fun game. I played badly for three days then started playing well. Happy overall, my bad play on d2 left the wolves not knowing what to do.
