Fair enough. Thank you for all your help, burst. Hopefully next year :)
Well, if anyone is interested after all, I can be reached on Discord: Thingyman#6075
I'm interested in general, but I don't know if I have enough time between April and June...
How about Leviator ?
If you have absolutely no time during any of those months, then ofc it's looking bad.
But you can completely choose these things yourself, if that makes a difference:
- Whether the game has American or European friendly deadlines.
- Whether the game should start April 29, May 6, May 13, May 20, May 27, June 3, June 10, June 17
- Whether the game should have 12-hour/12-hour day and night phases, or 36/12, 48/24 or 72/24
Hey guys. I'm going on vacation next week, so won't be able to check in here. If you guys happen to decide on a representative for the Mafia Championship in that time, they can reach me on Mafia Universe or Discord (Thingyman#6075). I'll then make sure they get the information they need to get prepared :)
Gray Ninja you seem to be the only nominee thus far - what do you say? :D
or maybe you, burst ? :D
Thank you, burst! I appreciate your help very much.
I'd be very excited to see BisaBoard represented this year, so I'm crossing my fingers :D
If anyone has any questions, just let me know!
If anyone is up for the challenge of repping BisaBoard this year, please do let me know before the week is over.
A little video to get you hyped about this season (would love to add BisaBoard to it):
No one at all interested in representing BisaBoard this year? I would be quite sad to see you guys not be in it this year :(
Your representative's Mafia Championship game has started: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/f…le-The-Mafia-Championship
I wish them the best of luck.
Remember to please keep discussion of the game to private channels where the players wouldn't be able to see your comments on the game. Also, if you want to spectate the game along with people from other communities, you can join the Discord server here (500+ people): https://discord.gg/zdeEhcg. Just remember to tag @staff and ask them for access to the spectator channel upon joining server :)
Your representative has been slotted into this game below.
GAME 4 @ MAY 15 (48/24 Phase Lengths w/ 4 PM EST deadline)
@abarker (What the Daily WTF?)
@braided pain (Personality Cafe)
@Crispetalous (Sugoi Desu!)
@Dp101 (Realms Beyond)
@lexistenz (Hattrick.org (Romanian))
@machucado (Hattrick.org (Swedish))
@Maribro (Australian Super Smash Bros.)
@Murska (Giant in the Playground)
@TEOL (Extreme Warfare Battleground)
@Voe (W3D Hub)
@Zone Q11 (Novel Updates)
Do you wish to spectate and/or talk with players from other communities?
We have a big chat on Discord (300+ 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/zdeEhcg
2) Tag one of the red or blue people in the chat (write @Thingyman or @staff for example), let them know who you are and from what community, and they'll 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.
Where do I get more info?
Refer to this thread: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/f…ason-4-The-Time-Is-Now%21
This thread will tell you all the details about this season. It also includes the list of participating communities and their representatives.
If you need to get in contact with me, my Skype is "thingyman" and my Discord is "Thingyman#6075". From this point on I will be checking in less on the various sites. I will make sure to pop in again though when your representative's game starts and post a link :)
Sorry, had missed that. All good then -- should I just send the info to you? :)
Seems there is no interest; Fair enough. Thanks for posting this though :)
Maybe next year!
Don't be afraid to volunteer if you're worried you're not "good enough" - it's mostly about having fun and making new friends :)
Update on The Mafia Championship
Exciting news: We are expanding to 150 participating communities, which is more than last season. In fact, we may even go for 165 communities depending on how some invitations go.
On that note, if you know of a community that might be interested in participating and isn't on the list in the linked post, let me know and I'll be happy to give them an invitation: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/f…49&viewfull=1#post1070949
Since none of the representatives chosen at this point have indicated that they can only play if their game starts April 24, I have made the decision that the qualifying phase won't begin until May 1st in order to allow me more time to get everything properly organized and to get all representatives properly prepared. This will have no impact on the overall schedule for this season; the qualifying phase will still be wrapped up by early July, after which we dive into the wildcard games followed by the finale game.
Finally, to communities that haven't elected a representative yet: Remember that your deadline for electing a representative is April 23.
Once again, thanks for participating in this year's Mafia Championship. It was great to have you be represented (thanks Pikachamp for repping), and hopefully you'll be there for next year's season as well :)
I thought you might be interested to know that the finale for this season finally started yesterday. 136 communities, 9 games and almost 6 months later - it's finally time for the final 17 players to battle it out to find out who player will earn the title of the Internet's best mafia/werewolf player.
Want to spectate the finale?
If any people from your community are interested in following along and spectating, you can find the game thread here: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/f…e-The-Koopa-Troop-DAY-ONE
The OP post contains a spoiler box called "Threadmarks". Inside this, a table of links to important events will be automatically generated. I.e. it will link to the various day and night starts, for example, making it easier for spectators to get an overview of the game. Day 1 ends tonight at 8 PM EST.
If you'd also like to chat with other spectators about the game, we have a huge chat on Skype with almost 200 people. If you're a social butterfly, this is also just a great opportunity to talk with other mafia/werewolf enthusiasts about whatever - it's a very friendly bunch. Join this chat by adding me on Skype: thingyman (the one with a picture).
Additionally, you can also join the on-site spectator thread by PM'ing "Thingyman" on the site. Note that activation emails will probably go to your spam folder. If you are having trouble with anything, try PM'ing me here.
Hydra event interest?
At least a dozen different communities this year expressed an interest in a so-called "hydra event". If you don't know what "hydra" means, it's when two people share the same account (two heads). So the idea is that each participating community can send a hydra of two players, the advantage of which is that it's maybe easier to be active when two players are both playing on the same account, and it's also just a lot of fun.
If you are interested in participating in such an event, do let me know and I'll start making a list of interested communities. I don't expect all 135 communities to participate in this at all, so it'll most likely be a smaller thing and obviously it will just be for fun.
The game has now begun: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/f…-Quest-Mafia-Championship
If you wish to spectate, remember you can just add me on Skype (thingyman) and I'll throw you into our 180+ person chat. Or you can PM thingyman on the above site and I'll add you to the private thread.
Crossing my fingers for a fun and exciting game :)
Your representative has been scheduled for the game below.
Game 2 - May 2 (36/12 phases, European deadlines)
CHDog (Irish Poker Boards)
Christian (Swedish Hattrick.org community)
Cormag (The Millennium Forums)
Dyslexicon (Personality Café)
Jan (Super Mafia All-Stars)
Jeremy Davis (Grand Prix Racing Online)
Joga bonito (Football Forums)
LimitlessEdge (Comic Vine)
Mist (Lupus in Tabula Online)
phantomEclipse (Chocolate Pi)
silver (Dominion Strategy)
wikey (Further Entertainment)
Yayap (SC2 Mafia)
The game is taking place on Mafia Universe. You can find the specific subforum dedicated to the championship here: http://www.mafiauniverse.com/f…e-Mafia-Championship-2016
I want to talk about and spectate the game - what do I do?
If you wish to actively spectate and show support for your representative, then there are two ways of doing this.
1) There will be a private spectator thread on the site for each game that you may request access to. Simply register on the site and PM the user "Thingyman", and I will add you. Feel free to spectate games that your representative isn't in as well. These threads are published after the game completes.
2) We have a spectator chat on Skype, with currently more than 140 people in it. It's very active and fun, I highly suggest you join it if you have Skype. Just add me: thingyman. Please let me know which community you hail from when adding me.
None of these two chats/threads will be spoiled!
Finally, we kindly ask that you refrain from commenting too much on the games in public on this forum, as the other representatives will easily be able to find and read through this (as has happened in the past). I can't control what you do here, but out of respect for the integrity of this Championship, it's best if you don't discuss your reads on your representative or the other players or make comments that could potentially indicate your reads. I.e. even something like "oh man, our representative is totally being his usual self right now" is not good. Speaking very generally about what has happened so far in the game (so as to update your fellow community members) without commenting on it is fine though.
I hope this doesn't seem too strict to you guys, but the game can become very uncomfortable (and unfair) if there is discussion about it outside of the game thread. If you want to have your own private spectator chat, that is of course also totally fine and I even encourage it (I'd love to be added if you make one of these) :)
I wish your representative and your community all the best of luck for this season! :)
