TEAM MAFIA 2021 GAMEPLAY RULESET

ALL SITE RULES, INCLUDING THOSE PROHIBITING TALKING ABOUT NON TEAM MAFIA GAMES, STILL APPLY.
I reserve the right to append these rules should it become necessary. If this happens, all players will be notified
If you have any doubt about whether something is against the rules or not, pm your mod and me, and ask.

Team Communication


1. Each team will be provided a Private Topic (PT).
2. Each team will be provided a Discord Channel (DC).
3. Players may copy and paste whatever they want into their PT/DC. They may not copy and paste text OUT of their PT/DC into game threads.
4. Players may continue to communicate with their team after in-game death in their provided PT/DC.
5. There are no restrictions for what players can post in their PT/DC's outside of not breaking site rules.
6. Team PT/DC's will only be made public after the game if all players on the team consent to their release.
7. All Game PT's including all scum PT's will automatically be released after Team Mafia.

8. There will not be Spectator/Dead PT's.
9. You will convey your role and alignment to your teammates.
9a. You will be aware of the roles and alignments of your teammates.
10. You will convey all moderator-given information to your teammates (ex. cop results)

Talking About Other Games

1. There are no restrictions for what players can post in their PT/DC's outside of not breaking site rules. The rules for this section refer to what players can talk about in their ongoing games and ongoing game PT's.
2. Players are only allowed to talk about mod-confirmed things from other ongoing Team Mafia games.

Examples of things that ARE allowed
  • Stating who is on what team.
  • Stating what Day or Night another game is in.
  • Stating how many players are left alive on a team.
  • Stating how many town or scum are alive in another game.
  • Stating whether a dead player in another game has flipped town or scum.

3. Any public speculation about other ongoing games is prohibited.
4. Any attempt to publically signal players from other ongoing games, pass messages to players from other games, or otherwise communicate through the use of cryptography is prohibited.
5. Do not try to loophole these rules. If anyone has questions at any point about what is allowed or not allowed please message me (Untrod Tripod).
6. To repeat: If you have any doubt about whether something is against the rules or not, PM your mod and me, and ask.

Your Teammates are Always Innocent Until Proven Guilty

1. You may at no time say, indicate, insinuate, etc. in a game or game-related PT that your Team Mafia teammates are or might be anything other than town.
2. Exception: You may talk about your teammates being scum if they have flipped scum in another game (i.e. are dead).
3. If a player is NOT on your team and is still alive in another game, you must follow the rules in the Talking About Other Games thread.

Replacements

1. It is your job to replace team members who are not active. You are allowed to ask anyone who has not previously been involved in this event. We have a list of people in this thread who have already signaled a willingness to replace in, if you cannot find someone. If you (the team) do not find a replacement in either of these two ways and I have to do it for you, there will be a tiebreak penalty.
2. To replace a team member, you must PM Untrod Tripod AND the moderator of your game. We have a list of replacements that you will be able to choose from.
3. You may replace with anyone who is not currently on a Team Mafia team, has not previously been on a different Team Mafia team, is and has not been part of the Team Mafia Organizing team (Moderators, Balance-checkers, players in tiebreak game), and is eligible to play in mafia games. However, only 4 people may be involved in the PT at any time. A replaced team member may not participate in any way unless they are replaced back in.
4. The mod will force replace any player who has not posted within 3 days (Prodded after 2 days, no response for 1 more) of their last post (not including Night). This will come at a penalty to the team.
5. If a player must be replaced due to mod errors or another outside influence (such as gaining information that they should not be able to have), the mods may assist in finding a replacement without assessing a penalty.

Scoring


Team Mafia 2021 is, chiefly, a competition between teams. Therefore, there is a scoring system.

1. Each team will be rewarded 1 point for being on the winning side of a finished game, even if they died before the game ended.
2. The team with the most points wins.

At the end of each game and at the end of the whole event, there will be a survey distributed to the teams. For the games the survey will require each player to vote, on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the least important 10 being the most important, how important a player was in their side winning the game. For the Team Survey, each player will be required to vote how deserving each team is of winning the event on a scale from 1 to 10.

In the event of a tie, there is a tiebreaker. In order of importance:

1. Being on the winning side of the Large Theme.
1a. Being on the winning side of the Large Normal
2. Having the best average score in the Game Survey.
3. Having the best score in the Team Survey.
4. The TM2021 Mods vote on a winner.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: I decided that it would be fun to break site rules during this event. Will this have consequences for me outside of the event?
A: Yes! Moderator actions taken during this event have the potential to affect your ability to play in games outside of this event.

Q: I decided that it would be fun to break site rules outside of this event. Will this have consequences for me inside this event?
A: Very possibly! Best to be on the safe side and not break site rules if you want to play this event start to finish.

Q: I thought it would be a fun thing to not know any of my teammate's roles or alignments. Is this okay?
A: It is not okay! The nature of this event is the ability to collaborate as a team in reading and reacting to games. Trying to have less information than your teammates to gain some kind of an edge is not allowed.

Q: Okay, so I have to know that my teammate drew scum in a game. But is it okay if my teammate doesn't tell any of us who their scum buddies are so we can read the game as if we're town and thus gain some kind of edge?
A: No. You will have all of the information that your teammates do.

Q: I have to replace out of this event for personal reasons. Will this affect my team's ability to win in a tiebreaker?
A: If your team finds a replacement either on their own or grabs one from the pool, it will not affect their ability to win in a tiebreaker.

Q: Am I allowed to post my role PM into my Discord Channel and/or PT?
A: Yes. You are encouraged to do so.

Q: Oh no, I talked a lot of shit about other teams in my teams Discord and/or PT. Are people going to hate me now when you release those at the end of the event???
A: Team Discord channels and Private Topics will not be released at the end of this event. Mafia PTs, however, will be.

Hi everyone. I hope the remaining TM games are going well. There has been an uptick of reports of people talking about Team Mafia games in other ongoing games.

I'd like to reiterate that Team Mafia is considered ONGOING and that the individual games that are complete are still considered as Ongoing Games for the purposes of Team Mafia 2021.

Please do not talk about any Team Mafia game outside of the event or your team threads. Instances after this warning can result in further action being taken.

If you have any questions please PM me. Thank you.

GGs! :]

Huge thanks to Bell. Replacing into a scum slot like that is no easy task.

Also thanks to the mods, especially UT who carried the game to the end even with all his RL interference.
