Newbie Game Queue
List Moderator: Mina
List Mod Emeriti: Mr. Flay, singersigner, Vel-Rahn Koon


Newbie Game Specific Information

Additional helpful information:
New players will probably want to start playing one game here before playing elsewhere on the site. Reply in this thread indicating that you'd like to play ("/in for next" is a standard way of doing so). You will get a PM from your game moderator when your game is about to begin.

Your name should be added to the first post within 24-48 hours. The waiting time for a game to start is currently 4-5 days, on average. Upcoming games will be full when there is one Inexperience-Challenged (IC) player, two Semi-Experienced (SE) player(s), and six Newbie players available. More/less ICs and SEs may be used in any given game to relieve a backlog on those specific areas of the Queue.




Player Requirements:
For purposes of Player Game Limits:
  • A finished game is one in which you are out of the game (by lynch or night kill) but the game is still being played by others.
  • A completed game is a game in which a winning side has been declared and the game is over.
  • For purposes of quantifying eligible completed games, two completed micro games will count as one completed game in another queue. Blitz games do not count as experience.
  • Replacing out of a game will count as a finished game if there was an acceptable level of participation.
Taking on too many Newbie games at one time, getting overloaded, and replacing out of those games can get you banned from the Newbie Queue!

Spoiler: Newer Players
  • Brand new players may only play in one Newbie Game.
  • Brand new players may either play a Newbie game from scratch or replace into an existing Newbie game for your first game.
  • Once you are out of your first Newbie game (by lynch, night kill, or the end of the game) you may sign up for a second Newbie game.
  • Players with one finished game anywhere on site may also replace into as many Newbie games as you can handle.
  • As a Newer Player, you are only allowed to play two Newbie games from scratch.
  • Once you have played two Newbie games you are no longer allowed to play Newbie games (except as a replacement) until you play a game outside The Road to Rome, thereby qualifying as an SE player. See the SE section below for more information.

Spoiler: SEs
  • When you finish any three games, with at least one outside of The Road to Rome, you are then considered a Semi-Experienced (SE) player and will occupy one of the SE playing spots.
  • SE players may play in as many Newbie games as they can handle.

Spoiler: ICs
  • First and formost, the IC slot is a VOLUNTARY TEACHING position. If you don't want to be required to explain how the game works to the Newer players, you should sign up to be an SE. More information can be found in the wiki: IC.
  • A player that finishes any five games, with at least two outside of The Road to Rome, and has at least 3 months on-site may apply to be an Inexperience Challenged (IC) player.
  • Replacing out of a game does not count as finished!
  • At least one of your 5 games must be a Newbie game, either as a Newbie or as an SE.
  • Send the ListMod a PM with links to your 5 most-recent completed games when you /in to IC.
  • If one of your 5 most-recent completed games is NOT a Newbie, you should include a link to a Newbie game.
  • All Potential ICs MUST also read Being a good IC.
  • If you want to IC a game, you must "/in to IC". The list mod will place you in the SE queue if you do not specify "/in to IC".

Spoiler: Replacements
  • If you want to replace into a specific game you should send a PM directly to the Mod instead of posting here.
  • Unless specified, all requested replacements are newbie replacements.
  • Moderators are welcome to replace with a player of greater skill level if they wish (ICs may replace SEs or Newbies, for example. Newbies may NOT replace into an SE or IC spot).
  • Please notify the ListMod if you notice a player replace out who then signs up to play another Newbie game within the next 14 days. Replacing due to boredom or any other similarly selfish reason is NOT acceptable and the offender will be suspended from placement into the Queue for a period of two weeks.

Spoiler: Alts
IF YOU ARE SIGNING UP AS AN ALT ACCOUNT:
Established players starting Alt accounts (an account different from their primary account, usually used as a means to play against their established meta) may not /in as a Newbie since they'd be taking a spot away from a true site Newbie. Additionally, since the Alt account itself doesn't qualify, you may not function as SEs or ICs under the Alt account either, even if the player behind the account does qualify for one of these positions.

The ONLY way in which a new Alt account (one with less than two finished games) may play in a Newbie game is to offer to replace into existing games. Once the account has a record of three finished games, you may then /in as an SE player as normal. Once the account has a record of 5 completed games and 3 months on-site, you may /in as an IC player after ListMod certification as normal. You may always instead use your primary account to function as an SE or IC, depending on qualifications.

Hydras are sometimes considered a type of alt account, but for the purposes of keeping Newbie Games as normal as possible, they are not allowed in Newbie Games. Hydra accounts will be force-replaced immediately if discovered playing Newbie Games.


Any player is, of course, welcome to join other Game Queues as they feel ready.




Moderator Requirements:
  • You may only be in the modding queue twice at a time. (See this post.)
  • Potential moderators must have one completed game on this site as a Moderator. See the Modding Requirements wiki article for exact details.
  • Potential moderators MUST visit the Newbie_Game#Moderators wiki page to see what is required of Newbie game Mods.
  • Potential moderators must include links to their completed games when they make the request to be added to the modding rotation. If you have more than two games as a Mod, please link the latest two.
  • For purposes of quantifying eligible completed games, three completed micro games will count as one completed game in another queue. Blitz games do not count as experience.




Newbie Setup
Matrix6 (as designed by Cogito Ergo Sum):

ABC
1Town JailkeeperVanilla TownieMafia Goon
2Mafia RoleblockerTown CopTown Doctor
3Town 1-shot
Bulletproof
Mafia GoonTown Tracker

Each Newbie Game will be given a setup that incorporates either one row or one column. The remaining six roles will be filled in by mafia goons and vanilla townies appropriately, to create a 2-mafia and 7-town setup. They are listed below.

Spoiler: Full Setups
Row 1: Mafia Goon x 2, Town Jailkeeper, Vanilla Townie x 6
Row 2: Mafia Roleblocker, Mafia Goon, Town Cop, Town Doctor, Vanilla Townie x 5
Row 3: Mafia Goon x 2, Town 1-shot Bulletproof, Town Tracker, Vanilla Townie x 5
Column A: Mafia Roleblocker, Mafia Goon, Town Jailkeeper, Town 1-shot Bulletproof, Vanilla Townie x 5
Column B: Mafia Goon x 2, Town Cop, Vanilla Townie x 6
Column C: Mafia Goon x 2, Town Doctor, Town Tracker, Vanilla Townie x 5


All Newbie games should use the Natural Action Resolution system for determining Night action effects. Roleblocker actions will take precedence over Jailkeeper actions should that apply. The 1-shot Bulletproof is a passive ability that cannot be roleblocked.

First-time mods should use the sample role PMs below.

I apologize if I'm missing something simple, but for my purposes in counting "how many Mods are in front of me" -- are the four "Awaiting" slots distinct from the list above it?

If those four slots are indeed in the Queue, then /in to Mod.

That was more a note to myself that I hadn't yet reviewed their OP (may change the formatting, since it's confusing). But I can add you below them when I update the queue.

  • Cleaned up permissions to the newbie group. The only people who should have Centurion access are former newbie queue mods and moderators with active threads in The Road to Rome. If you believe you have mistakenly lost your permissions, please PM me!

  • Upon suggestion, first post edited to list all six possible setup configurations in detail. It's also clarified that new mods are bound to use the standard role PMs in the OP.

Update coming.

In post 99, Howl wrote:I inned in other queues but haven't actually played a game here yet can I still in here.

I played elsewhere so didn't think I was ok to play newbie games but I read the rules and saw it was ok for new to the site.

If I'm ok to play here then /in

Also do I need to out of the other queues?

1. If you've never completed a game on-site, you may only play a single newbie game at a time. But this only applies to the Newbie Game Queue. As long as you have time to devote to all of them (replacements/lurkers aren't fun for players or mods), you're welcome to /in for multiple games on-site if you want. :]

2. Anyone can join a newbie game. It doesn't matter how much experience you have, on-site or off-site. However, if you've completed 0-1 games on mafiascum, you're added as a Newer Player rather than as a Semi-Experienced Player.

Hope this helps! I'll add you to the queue.

Thanks to all the IC volunteers! Assuming I only go with one IC (for once, the queue can support a second one), I'll skip down to Cabd on the IC list, since toolenduso is a first-time newbie mod.

Queue updated. If I do not get another new player /in within twenty-four hours, I'll run the game with four newbies, three SEs, and two ICs, unless toolenduso, Tammy, or Cabd has an issue with this. (I understand that two ICs changes the dynamics of IC-ing.)

Take seventeen...

The confusion is because instead of using the SE guidelines, I was reading the Newer Player guidelines, which mentioned you can only play two games as a newbie, and interpreted that to mean that after two games, you become an SE.

However, I missed this line:


Once you have played two Newbie games you are no longer allowed to play Newbie games (except as a replacement) until you play a game outside The Road to Rome, thereby qualifying as an SE player. See the SE section below for more information.


So unfortunately, the way the rules are currently written, I can't accept lolbabe's /in until he has at least one completed game in another queue. (I don't want to change them yet without conferring with someone else, given I'm new to the position.)

Sorry for my mistake!

Sorry, but you don't seem to have enough games played to IC. Unfortunately, since you have two completed newbie games, if you want to play another newbie, you'd have to replace in. (SE slots are only available once you've completed at least one game outside The Road to Rome.)

Also, as a general PSA, first-time ICs are only added to the queue after they've been reviewed and approved.

I would like to apologize to both Soren and iCupboard. It turns out I missed iCupboard's /in, and he should have been added to 1569 before Soren.

Since role PMs were not yet sent, I feel like the only fair thing is to let iCupboard play in Soren's slot. Soren will be placed in the next game.

Sorry for my mistake and any complications or disappointment it caused. (This is what I get for updating from my phone.)

Stealing Saurian333 for this, but now I need a proper Newbie replacement for ShortcutButton, who's failed to pick up a prod that was sent to him. Anybody not a Newbie already in their first game should PM me to replace in.

Saurian333 replaced into Nobody Special's game a few posts above you (sorry, the OP hadn't been updated, yet) so you can't steal him. Also, the game thread has been open for almost a week (and was created close to two weeks ago), so I think you should make this slot open to replacements rather than steal a player, particularly since you'd previously requested a replacement for the same slot here.

There's no replacement queue, so the best way to do this is to wait for a mod to post a replacement request in this thread and then PM him or her. Expressing your interest is good in case people start looking soon, though!

I will be V/LA from Thursday, February 12th to Tuesday, February 17th. I'll try to keep the queue updated during that period, but any questions or concerns should be addressed to singersigner or to an administrator, because I won't be checking my PMs often.

^ What he said. I added you to the queue after your first post--as soon as we have enough players, your game will start and your mod will PM you with your role.

Also, not that I'd advertise or anything, but it seems like goodmorning is the only IC in the queue now, and I wonder if there are any qualified ICs who happen to have enough free time to sign up HINT HINT HINT.

This is just an announcement that the next newbie game (tn5421's Newbie 1582) uses Thesp's automatic vote counter. Nothing is changed except that vote formatting is a bit stricter (see tn's ruleset for details once the thread is created). I'm just waiting for one additional newbie to launch it.

This can't be considered accurate.

I've played 2 newbie games (D1, N4), got killed N1 in the only main game I've played and replaced out D1 in the 2nd main I joined due to work commitments.

I suck at this and should probably be considered a noob. There is nothing SE about me.

Can I request a difficulty level change ?

Sorry, but you're only a newbie if you have fewer than two completed games. But don't worry, you don't need to be particularly skilled at Mafia to be an SE. :P The IC is there to explain the game to newbies if necessary, so there's no expectation that you do anything beyond play as usual. We just need to give priority to people who are in their very first games onsite.

Also, there's no change in difficulty--every slot has an equal chance of drawing town or scum. You just get a shiny (SE) beside your name in the player list!

Also, there seems to be some confusion (lots of people "/inning to replace" at once), but unfortunately, there's no queue for replacements. If you want to replace into a game, you have to wait for a mod to post a request here, and then PM him or her to volunteer. Expressing your interest here might potentially prompt a desperate mod to PM you first, but there's no guarantee, and it's much better just to keep an eye on this thread.

ATTENTION: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

The size of the modding queue has been swelling to ridiculous proportions lately. In order to give everyone a fair chance to mod, starting from this post, I'm limiting people to entering the modding queue twice at once.

You may either /in to mod x 2 or wait to /in a second time. But once you are in the modding queue twice, you may not join it again until at least one of your games begins.

This change is not retroactive: you're fine if you're already in the queue to mod three games or more. However, you may not /in for any more games until your name only appears in the modding queue once.


I appreciate that modding newbies is a service to the site and that it's better to have too many mods than too few, so I hope this is only a temporary solution until the queue becomes a bit more manageable. Please PM me if you have any questions or thoughts on this policy.

Since I've been having a lot of trouble with this in the past month:

In post 0, Mina wrote:Established players starting Alt accounts (an account different from their primary account, usually used as a means to play against their established meta) may not /in as a Newbie since they'd be taking a spot away from a true site Newbie. Additionally, since the Alt account itself doesn't qualify, you may not function as SEs or ICs under the Alt account either, even if the player behind the account does qualify for one of these positions.

The ONLY way in which a new Alt account (one with less than two finished games) may play in a Newbie game is to offer to replace into existing games. Once the account has a record of three finished games, you may then /in as an SE player as normal. Once the account has a record of 5 completed games and 3 months on-site, you may /in as an IC player after ListMod certification as normal. You may always instead use your primary account to function as an SE or IC, depending on qualifications.

If you want to play your first game on a completely fresh alt, choose a different queue. Taking slots away from genuine newbies for an in-game advantage is unethical. Repeated attempts to circumvent this could result in mod sanctions. Not only does this drastically increase my workload, but I have a much, much better idea of which players are likely alts than you'd think. All you do by trying to cheat the system and illicitly sneak into a game is 1) irritate me and 2) make me eagerly wait for you to slip up.

Also, if you believe you could potentially have an IP conflict with another user, I would appreciate being informed of this when you /in. It means both less work for me and less of a wait time for you before you get into your game. So it's win-win. :]

Since multiple people have asked me about this...

Unfortunately, I can't shuffle around the order just so you can play with someone you want. I especially can't bump you up the queue or bump someone else down without their permission just to accommodate you. Doing so is unfair to people who waited their turn.

If two people want to play with each other, whoever would have joined a game first can /out and then re-/in for the queue. In exceptional cases, I may allow someone to wait an additional game to be with someone else if they have a good reason and both parties are willing. Note that out-of-game alliances are forbidden and cliques of experienced players who know each other can ruin the game for newer players, and there may be repercussions if this privilege is abused.

Sorry about that! Once you've completed a game, you're allowed to replace in and join a game from scratch at the same time. I thought that was your intention here. I should have double-checked with you.

I would like feedback by PM from regular newbie mods. Do you find the 1 superscripts beside newbies' names indicating that they've completed at least one game onsite useful? I personally ignore them and just check players' game history--also, the queue becomes out of date if newbies complete games elsewhere after signing up.

I'd much prefer to remove the superscripts to make the OP more streamlined, but I won't if there's a high enough demand for them to stay.

Thanks to everyone who weighed in! I can't respond to everyone individually right now, but I received a ton of feedback that consisted overwhelmingly of "we don't use it in the slightest," so consider it abolished.

Next game will be probably be launched in a few hours, when I have some time at work.

It's my fault for not noticing immediately, but for future reference, players with stars beside their names in the player list are NOT supposed to be stolen. It means I didn't add them to the queue for a specific reason such as an IP conflict but am waiting to follow-up.

Also, I'd appreciate if people would PM me to let me know if I missed you or made a mistake in the current update. The number of newbies appears to be unusually low given it's been awhile since the last game, and it's possible I was confused by all the replacements and stealing.

For the triple post, a colossal thanks to Ether for taking the initiative to redo the Newbie wiki archives.

Not only is the Newbie Game/History page completely up-to-date right now, but she went through every single completed game from 1500 onward and added role and flip information. For those of you who haven't tried combing through a game to find out what someone claimed because the mod never updated the OP past D3, doing this for a hundred games is an INCREDIBLE amount of work--there's a reason people switched to posting only the player list and outcome. She deserves a ton of appreciation.

Yep, you're allowed to /in as a newbie. The rules for determining newbie vs. SE status may change in the near future to be less complex, however.

Also, we URGENTLY need ICs right now. I have one I'm reviewing, but we have almost enough newbies for three games. If you think you can commit to playing a full game, now would be a great time to join. (We've had a problem with ICs flaking with no explanation from games recently, which sets a terrible first impression and can get you banned from ICing).

Yes, as the rules are currently written, you're ineligible to /in as a newbie if you've completed two newbies, but are ELIGIBLE if you've completed 2 non-newbie games. I've been ignoring this recently, however, because I'm looking to revamp them.

The next game will be launched in a few hours, since I have an appointment and then a bit of spare time before a wedding.

You missed my /in too.....

That's because I needed to verify that you had fewer than three game slots alive before adding you. I've just been swamped this week and fell behind on administrative stuff. It looks like you have room for one more game.

A (mostly) friendly PSA:

Over the past couple of weeks, an absurd number of accounts (~15%) have had IP conflicts or issues of some sort. This slows down the queue tremendously and ruins the fun for everyone, because I work two jobs and it takes me a lot of time and energy to chase after all of them. I know most of those were accidents and not the fault of the users trying to play Mafia in good faith. However, some helpful guidelines to reduce problems in the future:

1) Experienced players are not allowed to join the newbie queue and impersonate new players under alt accounts. If you want to play under an alt, there are plenty of above-ground options: replace into a newbie game, join a Mini instead, gain enough experience under your alt to /in as an SE, etc.
2) You may certainly not attempt to join a game with yourself or with any accounts to which you have the password. This is cheating, and will get you banned.
3) Hydras are not permitted in the newbie queue. This includes any account to which multiple people have the password.
4) Please tell the truth to the best of your ability when I'm trying to investigate an IP conflict. I'm much more forgiving of a misunderstanding of the rules than a willful attempt to deceive me.
5) If you are a newbie and know another poster shares your Internet connection, I would appreciate a warning PM in advance, because it'd save us both time.
6) /inning for the queue with a proxy, aside from arousing my hyperactive paranoia, often leads to IP conflicts with other people using the same proxy, so I would avoid using one to join a game.

Thanks!

Since you've completed a game onsite, you can do both.

Lastly, for the umpteenth time, as stated in the rules on alts in the first post in this thread, in Ban Announcements, and multiple times in the queue, experienced players are not allowed to sign up for newbie slots under alts unless they are replacing in midway through the game. Doing so is not an oh-so-clever joke--it is cheating.

Unfortunately, the next game won't be out until tomorrow, because it's 3:30 AM.
