Cool Invitation to the Mafia Championships Season 6

As many of the players that actively participate in the continuous games that have returned to GDS know, I have not been as active on this board as I am normally. There is a good reason for this. I have been working towards the growth of mafia/werewolf, not just here at GDS. Since the games returned in November they have ran continuously and that is a good thing. I hope that GDS once again returns to the thriving mafia community that it once was.

We are getting there! But what we have done with the reemergence of the games here is catch the attention of others on the net. There is a massive amount of communities that play some form of mafia or werewolf throughout the net. These communities are based all over the world. Several years ago, a competition was started to bring all those communities that play this game or some form of it together. And on that note, I am happy to announce that we have received an invitation to send a representative this season. The following is the invitation which explains the entire process.


https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...A9VG5p4W4/edit

The Mafia Council has been discussing the invitation and the proper way to go about choosing a representative to send to the competition. We have decided to post a thread in the Dog Pound and open up nominations from those that regularly play mafia on this site.

The following process will be used.
>Players may be nominated to be on the ballot. In order to make the ballot a player must be seconded by another player.
>Each player is allowed one action. You may nominate a player or second one. This process will take place in the thread and will go one for a period of 5 days. At the end of the nomination period, those receiving both nominations and seconds will be voted on, with the one receiving the most votes being our representative and the player finishing second the named backup.

At the end of this process, the representative's name and information will be sent in to the event. There are somethings to keep in mind.
>You must be active. Very active. Last years Championship rounds saw an average of 90.3 posts per player per phase.
>They do not play like the norm is on GDS.
-There will be someone lynched each phase.
-No lynch is a strategy only used in late game, specific situations.
-Claiming will not save you. The roles are randomized.


After reading the invitation, if you have questions I will do my best to answer them. If I can't I will find them out. And I suppose in an effort to not clutter the Dog Pound the nominations can be done in here.

Do them just as you would a vote in a game.

Nominate: Taker

This becomes the official action.

Second: Taker

I know Outlaw stressed very active, but that doesn't begin to cover it. In my most active days I wasn't nearly active enough, so there are probably only a few here who stand a chance - would have been more 10 years ago, but things change.

I won't lie to you. I played in the first two games to test the gameset and they were not easy.

Can't stress this enough. Played a game there recently. A smaller not as active game and it still moved much quicker than our games here. The biggest difference was the heightened intensity with which they played though.

Thanks for the confidence to anyone that nominated me, or plans to... I want to take my name out of the hat real quick to allow you to nominate someone else.

1. I won't be able to be as active after this week. I'm just taking vacation right now is the only reason I'm so active. There is no way I could do what others do, and read along or play while working. I won't lie and say I wouldn't be able to keep up, but my missing for half a day at a time would be very noticeable there.

2. I think someone that's been playing since the "rebirth" started should have the opportunity. I'm only on game three. I know most know me from 10 years ago, and I appreciate the votes of confidence more than you know. But this really should go to someone that's been around more than I have.

3. I went over and looked at their last game and .... It's like 12 posts a minute for the first two day-phases, and although it slacks up as people die, it's going to take some dedication. Dedication I won't be able to give.

Those of you that have placed your votes on me, please feel free to place them on someone that wants to be a part of it. I honestly don't feel the need to play anywhere else but here, where it's not as fast as I would like it, but not hyper speed either.

Thanks again.
