Hey guys. We were invited by MrThingyman to the Mafia Championship.

Here's what he posted.

Hi there

I'm the organizer of this event. I had already been scouting your community and I'm glad to see that there seems to be some interest in participating.

Cliffs:
- Season 1 ran from 2013 to 2014 and featured 100+ players from 45+ different communities.
- This time around I initially invited 65 communities to each send just ONE representative.
- These representatives are playing in 5 games of 13 players each.
- 2 players advance (to a finale game) from each game based on a post-game vote.

And originally the last 3 spots for the finale were to be decided by a jury, but instead we're changing it up and adding a Game 6, which will feature 5 additional communities (to bring the total to 70 participating communities) and 8 wildcards picked by the jury. 3 people will advance directly from this game, giving us our final 13 players.

Here's the schedule for the next few games: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com...

Expect Game 6 to start June 15th. So your chosen representative would have to be able to commit to this start date, and more importantly, he/she would have to feel really confident about being able to handle a game that may produce 500+ posts per 24 hours.

The activity in the games have varied. Here they are (game 3 still ongoing).
Game 1: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com... (never featured more than 300 posts per 24 hours)
Game 2: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com... (also never featured more than 300 posts per 24 hours)
Game 3: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com... (super active, had something close to 1000 posts the first 24 hours of the game)

Let me know if you guys would be interested in sending a representative, I'd be glad to have you :)

So should we join? If so, who should be our representative?

If you guys have any questions, ask MrThingyman (http://www.debate.org...)

Well, the quote says that we need to send "a representative" so I'm guessing just one person.

MrThingyman, if you're still here, whats a wildcard?

So with the slight change, the format for this season is this:

5 games of 13 players each
2 people advance from each game based on post-game = giving us 10 players ready for the finale

That leaves us with 3 to be decided.

There's a jury who's been following all these games (consisting of season 1 finalists) and they will pick the 8 best players from the first 5 games and they will play in Game 6 alongside 5 reps from completely new sites (your site and 4 others). And 3 players will advance from this game, again based on post-game vote, giving us our 13 finalists.

bluesteel would be my top pick, but he's probably not interested so 4chan or f-16 would be our best bet.

Why not just gather all the Dragon Balls and wish for a strong player to lead us to victory.

I would go, but I'm sure we all agree I would not be a wise decision.

I would vote probably Ore or Raisor, but my top choice is Maikuru, if he's willing.
I'd have qualms about FT, Bluesteel, F-16, Drafter, and XLAV for various reasons, but they are clear front runners to represent DDO.
My work here is, finally, done.

You are the best =)

I would normally do it but I'm backing away from mafia for a bit. I think this sort of thing would suit drafter, f-16, or FT very well.

People who play on mafiascum would probably be ideal, or at least people who play across multiple communities.

This is true, and the different metas is why I am hesitant about sending FT or F-16. I think they'll be bogged down in what they know, and not adapt.

I'd vote for F-16, BV, or Maikuru -- they're the best socially, which means their skills will translate the best to other forums.

I'm definitely not good for this kind of thing. I'll 100% be knocked out after the first game unless my reads are perfect -- and I'll 100% lose if I'm mafia.

Right, on this note:

Day phases are 36 hours and night phases 12 hours, i.e. it's 2 RL days per game day. Except the weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) which is one game day. So it's 3 game days per week.

So it's def not mafiascum pace, but I don't think you guys have mafiascum'ish phases (?), so hopefully no issues on that end.

That's my kind of set-up!
