Mafia Championships

 

Hoid studied the gameboard set in front of him. It was an exact replica of the Cosmere as a whole and it glowed with tiny sparkling dots. Each one represented a possible Champion; for there was a challenge from beyond the Cosmere taking place.

 

Luckily, this was an area where Hoid excelled. He was a master tactician and he knew that, once he’d made the choice, his Champion would be more than capable of handling anything that these outsiders threw at them. Through the gnashing of teeth and brain-melting puzzles, his Champion would endure.

 

But first, he needed to choose….

 

*************************************

 

Hey everyone. We’ve got an announcement to make. We were contacted a while back by someone running what they are calling their Mafia Championship. They gather representatives from multiple different forums that play Mafia and those players then play in a tournament of Mafia games to determine who is the ultimate Mafia player. They are now into their third season of doing so and last year, they had around 70 different communities send a representative to their games. They even have the backing of the man who created Mafia (Dmitry Davidoff)! This year, they’re hoping to have up to around 130 different Mafia communities represented! And we’ll be able to kill them all! MWAHAHAHAHA!!!! :D

 

There was just one thing missing. They obviously could not have a true Mafia Championship while we were not represented! That’s like deciding the greatest author ever and ignoring Sanderson! :P

 

So it comes to this: we need to pick a representative to be our Champion in these games.

 

Here’s the breakdown of what our Champion can expect:

 

- There will be at most three games. The first is a qualifier game, where our Champion will play against other candidates. At the end of that game, the players will vote for two people who they think should move on to the final. There is also a wildcard game (should our Champion for some bizarre reason not be chosen to go the final) to round out the final. Then, of course, there is the final itself. Here's a link to the final game from last season.

 

- The games will begin at the end of April and the final will likely take place around the end of July. Yes, this is a long time to be available for. We have it on good authority that they will do their best to accommodate everyone’s schedules, so that everyone will be able to play during a time that is convenient for them.

 

- Our Champion should expect a very active game of Mafia. There is a minimum posting limit of at least 10 posts per day and there can easily be hundreds of posts made in a single day’s turn. Granted, most of these won’t be the essays that some people write here, but they should still expect quite a lot.

 

- The format is something they call a Matrix12. What this is, is basically a table of multiple roles that could be added to the game. A column or row is then chosen at random and that determines which roles are in the game. They still used a lot less roles than we are typically used to in our games though, so this should be a cinch for us. Here’s a link to what they are thinking for this season.

 

And I think that about covers it. If you’re interested in volunteering to be our Champion, please say so here. We’ll give it a couple of days for people to step forward and make nominations, then we’ll make a poll with the given representatives listed. At that point, everyone can vote for whom they think we should send as our Champion.

 

A quick note: this is not about us trying to send our best player. What we really want is someone that truly represents the nature of our community. These games tend to give players from other sites a chance to interact together and many times, some players will come join games on other forums, so we want someone that represents our Gentlemanly Killers nature above and beyond just being good at the game. We’re all pretty exceptional at that part; to the point where we would have no problem sending any one of you to represent us on that issue. :)

 

Feel free to ask any questions you may have. I’ve been looking over their site and I’ve read some of the previous games, so I have a pretty decent understanding of what we’ll be getting into. Also, feel free to follow the links to do some of your own research! In fact, here's one final link to some general information about this season's games!

 

Now then, who wishes to be our Sword at the throats at of all the other Mafia forums out there? Let’s show them how it’s done!

Meta, I nominate you.

I nominate Meta, Lopen, Amunensis, Haelbarde, Alvron, Wilson, and Mailliw.

 

I would also love to do it, but I'm not nearly the best candidate for this.

Having read through all the information, Wow. In previous seaons of this, they had to use a 100 post cap per day, to limit players who were posting too much. They're lifting that though. You;ll have to read through literal thousands of posts a day in order to keep up with this championship. This is going to be a huge time sink.

 

Good luck to whoever ends up going.

From my experiences, I'd say Meta, Wilson, Mailliw or Aman.

Thank you for the nominations, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to decline. Between working full time and other stuff going on, I really don't have the time (or energy) to keep up with something this big for this long.

I'd say Wilson as one of my top choices, but out of respect for her declination, I'll omit her from the list. Meta, Mailliw, Alvron, Haelbarde

Wilson probably just doesn't want to see her name in red so much.  ;) Meta, Mailliw, Aman, Haelbarde, Alvron

 

I would add myself to the list, but I'm not sure if I'd have the time. Plus I've never played Mafia anywhere besides here, so I'm not sure how I'd do even if I did have the time.

Meta, Haelbarde, Alvron, Mailliw.

 

This sounds so exciting! I can't wait to spectate on this.

 

If we're really trying to show off what makes us unique, I think our delegate should be ready to do a little RPing.

Sadly, I too have to decline.  While I would love to murder some new people, I haven't the time.

I concur with this list 100% (though I would replace myself with Joe) but I have no qualms representing. I will be rotating out of Africa to my new post mid-May, but that shouldn't have too much of in impact on things. A day max, and so long as I cut all other vices out of my life *cough alcohol cough* activity should never be an issue. I've been on a bit of a personal writing binge lately, so if I focused that onto RP than that wouldn't be a problem either. I do think any of the older players (Mailliw, Haelbarde, Lopen, etc) would do a much better job though.

Heh. While I'm honored that y'all think I'd be a good representative, but seriously - have any of you looked at my stats for SE? You know I'd likely get night 1'd, right? But regardless, I don't feel I'm that good a candidate.

Dunno if I'll have the time. I might, so I won't formally withdraw myself, but there are things I should be doing in the near future. We'll see. 

 

Reasons for nominations:

-The Moderators: They run this subforum, and Meta is the reason this exists. They're going to be good examples of what SE is about. So Meta, Wilson, Gamma, Alv

- Mailliw: The player with the most games played. He's also a good and consistently active player. Aonar, Joe and Araris are good candidates for a similar reason.

For good measure, I'll nominate Kas and Wyrm too. They're both fun to play with. Oh, and Kipper, 'cos he's played lots of Town of Salem.

You're a strong player, despite your luck, and more importantly, I feel like you'd represent us well. That said, I think availability is the most important thing, so if you won't have the time, that's absolutely fine.

 

Meta, you haven't weighed in on your own nominations. Would you be able to do it?

Hm.. So who am I thinking...

Meta, cause as Hael said, he started all this for us, and thats nomination worthy. 

Aonar because it would be amusing if he could break the game :P 

I also think whoever goes should be one of SE's bigger trolls. Cause lets face it. There are a lot of trolls here. May as well send one to represent us :P

 

Tho... just thinking about it.

So things the ideal player should be good at to represent us well:

1- being really active. Like. Really. Active

2- an experienced and higher level threat player

3- A troll

4- Rp

 

Actually thinking that Kas fits those boxes rather well.

Eh, it all starts my first day back at uni. So, I definitely won't have tons of time to commit to stuff. I'll represent if no one else is able, but otherwise I'm going to have so no, I'll won't be able to do it.

 

But thanks for your kind words, Wonko!

Well, the players I feel would represent our community best are: Meta, Kasimir, Renegade, Wyrmhero, Gamma Fiend

I would also vote for Wilson and Alvron, because they are super awesome to have in games as well.

Kipper, I'm pretty sure that there aren't any rules here. You and Maill are the only people with a single nomination.

 

Though, maybe we should do something more formal, once we've got our nominations nailed down. We could set up a poll.
