Mafia Championship Season 2

Postby Thingyman » 22 Mar 2015, 16:43

Hi everyone!

So as many of you probably remember, I hosted the 2013-2014 season of the Mafia Championship. It featured 100+ players from 45+ different communities.

Now it's time for season 2 and I was hoping that you guys would be interested in participating once again. The first time around you guys were represented by Crunkus and sjg11 who both did an awesome job. Note that Crunkus is ineligible to participate in season 2 because he played in season 1's finale game.

If you guys are interested, I will as always leave it completely up to you how you go about choosing your representative. Just make sure that the representative is prepared for and able to deal with a lot more activity than they're used to. It won't be as insane as the first season, seeing as it's 13-player games this time (more on format below), but nonetheless it will still require a lot of activity.

The info:

The current plan for season 2

• 65 different communities will be represented.
• 1 player per community for the entire season (preferably).
• 5 qualifying games will be played with 13 players each.
• 2 players advance to the finale from each game based on post-game votes.
• 3 additional players are granted wildcard spots.

Game setup

The game will have a very basic mafia setup: 3 mafia members, 7 vanilla townies and 1 cop. The cop starts the game with a random vanilla townie peek. Roles revealed upon death.

Some communities are not very used to playing basic setups like this, but for the first season, we utilized a setup with a good share of power roles, so this time around we are trying something new. For season 3 we will switch it up again.

Days will last 36 hours and nights 12 hours, meaning 48 hours (2 days) per game day. With one exception: The weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) will be one game day (so day will be 60 hours and night 12 hours on weekends). This means the game will last a maximum of 2 weeks.

Timeline

The first game is set to start April 6th. The other four games will take place in the 1-3 months after that. I will make a Doodle and find out the best times to start the 5 games so that preferably everyone gets to play during a time that suits them well.

In addition to this, it is also a priority to ensure as much as possible that all the players in any given game has no prior history of playing with each other to ensure a level playing field (but I cannot 100 % guarantee that this won’t happen).

3+7+1=11, not 13.

Anyways, the cruel side of me wants to send Ugluk :D . Harb or Keirador are good picks too.

Just seen that Harb should be free for one of the games. I have no issues with selecting him right now. Unless anyone has any particularly strong objections.

I am an outlandishly bad choice. Harb.

Did you know there’s a faceless old woman who secretly lives in your home? It’s true. She’s there now. She’s always there, just out of your sight. Always just out of your sight.

It seems like Harb is the clear choice. I hope it's okay if I go ahead and assume that he's officially your site's pick :)

Please do... if he can't fit into any of the dates we'll sort something out.
