I think the whole concept and setup and expectations are super lame.


I'm sorry to hear that. We're always very open to feedback on it all. There's already been several changes since the first season. What specifically is lame to you?

With regards to expectations, the first and foremost expectation is for everyone to have fun, and the vast majority of representatives always seem to have fun and many end up becoming friends afterwards, so for me that is a success :)

febb's primary complaint is probably that it's not Magic, which is the root of all his dismay in this world.

I fancy myself an optimist Thingy so I'm looking forward to the championship purely for fun. After all, it has to be successful if this is the third time not to mention all the other benefits you brought up due to this whole thing.

Plus, I've been informed what I'm going to be walking into. At the very least it'll be a learning experience for me.

As someone who has no say over anything, I fully support KoD to represent NGA.

Give 'em hell!

Alrighty, any tips anyone feels like offering for me?

Aside from the obvious tip of pick fights with everyone Febb may impart upon me.

my impression of the mafia community is that the #1 most important thing is to put your head so far up your ass that it comes back out your mouth

I'll see if I can work on that. No promises though.

What about the setups? Thingy mentioned something about Matrix12 or something where they randomly choose a setup out of 12 different types to use for a game.

Quick, they want a bio from me.

How would you all describe me so that your words may reflect the kind of person I am? I'll put whatever you guys put down.

matrix12 sounds like a mafiascum setup, but i couldn't find it on their wiki. Looks like it might be adapted specifically for this competition. It'd just mean that there are 12 random setups and one is randomly chosen before the game begins.

You should really talk yourself up in your bio while exaggerating the strength of your personality traits and the magnitude of your accomplishments. To play mafia in the big city you gotta make yourself look big.

Open it by quoting Zinger's MVP speech about you from Hobgoblin Lives.

Alright. I'll let my imagination flow.

I assume the setups are just like X town power roles and Y power roles and perhaps even a self aligned serial killer here or there? In varying amounts to make it different.

here's the setup its ultimately based on, i assume matrix refers to the table system of selecting roles based on rows and columns. But either way you can probably understand it as just being one of twelve "balanced" setups. I would expect it to be simpler role-wise since the earlier years were closer to vanilla setups. (if they weren't just vanilla, i can't recall).

Alright, perfect. That makes sense then seeing that as an example.

Here's the link I was provided to the setup they're going to use.

Looks like it will be fun. Especially if a mafia JoAT is in a game.

You should pick one person NOT to have fights with.

And then fight everyone else.

And do what I do about that thing about playing against wincon.

The matrices setup work by rows or columns for the role setup example.


Column A. Column B. Column C.

Row1


Row 2


Row 3

As for your Bio tell them you are the King of Persia and they should bow before your magnificent presence.

Unless that seems to over the top.

129 communities


That's what Thingyman has posted in the chat thread. That's a lot of people. Anyone know anyone on the list that is going to be representing (or have any experience with any of the communities listed)?

I'll get started on the bio either later tonight or tomorrow. I'll include what was suggested here because why not?

excluding Px2 and here, I've only played mafia on five forums, of which one is listed here.

When i played on MTGS last azrael was the top dog and it looks like he is being considered this time around. Iso and Seppel are other players I've played with. You know Iso, and Seppel played in a few Px2 games a while back as PK's guest of honor. I don't know if you'll remember him.

Azrael is the type of strong logic, calm demeanor, wall of posts kind of player you imagine when you think "strong mafia veteran". turns out i was thinking of someone else :lol:

I've only played in the one game with Iso, but he strikes me as cockier and more confident in his reads, which could go both ways in a game like this.

Seppel, as far as i can remember, was closer to a VI style of play. I couldn't imagine he'd be very strong in a game like this, and although the MTGS community seems to respect his strength as a player they seem to think the same thing.

Anyone who doesn't use my strategies is just asking to lose.
