Team Mafia 2023 Sign-Ups!

Post Post #0 (ISO) » Wed Mar 01, 2023 11:57 am

Post by T-Bone »

Team Mafia
is a sitewide event spanning five games. Teams of four players will be given the opportunity to choose four out of the five games to be placed in, and will work together to win their chosen games. Scoring, based on whether or not your team was in winning games, will determine the overall winners of the event. The winning team will receive a banner for their accounts that will be displayed until the next Team Mafia event or the next Scummies, whichever comes first. The tentative plan for the five games will be

1. A 15p large theme, run by T-Bone
2. A 13p open, run by implosion
3. A 13p mini normal, run by PenguinPower
4. An 10p mini theme, run by SirCakez
5. A 9p micro theme, run by Lilith

These games will be moderated by members of the Listmod team. Each team will be required to put a player in the large theme.

We are planning for 15 teams of 4 this year. Sign ups are first come, first served.

If you wish to sign-up grab three friends and have ONE person act as Team Captain and send me a PM with the following. (You may also post in the thread that you're in but I obviously need Discord sent privately)

Team Name:
Player 1:
Player 2:
Player 3:
Player 4:
Team Discord Link (Optional):


A note on Discords. I will leave it up to you to make a Team Discord. You will need to send me an invite link and make me an admin for transparency. You can take away my admin rights/kick me after the event is over if you want.

I will make Team PTs for the event.

We anticipate using 7 day deadlines to keep game lengths manageable, and finishing up all games by the end of April. We would prefer that you sign-up planning on playing through the first week of May, as replacements on an event this size are tough. With that said, we will make every effort to facilitate replacements as needed.

A note on Blacklists: We understand that some players do not wish to play with other players, and you will be invited to submit a list of players you do not wish to play with and we will do our best to honor the request. With an event this size we cannot guarantee that you won't be put into a game with players you do not want to play with. Generally the larger your blacklist the more likely you will end up in a game with them, (or end up in a set-up you do not prefer) so I invite you to consider long and hard if you can play with everyone signing up for Team Mafia or if it would be better for you to skip the event.

If you do not have a team please post that you are
looking for a team
in this thread to indicate to others that are also looking for a team. I will maintain a list of players looking for a team, and I will make teams for those players when sign-ups end if need be. Priority will be given to teams that do sign-up however, so I encourage you to make some new friends!

If you are unsure if you can join a team right now we will need replacements! Just post
/in to replace
in this thread! We will contact you as needed once the games begin.

Rules and Scoring

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 a Listmod and ask.


Team Communication


1. Each team will be provided a Private Topic (PT).
2. Each team may also utilize a Team Discord, adding me as an admin for transparency.
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. We'd prefer if teams used the provided means of communication. If your team really wants/needs to user another, please contact me. The organizing team will need to be able to access any means of communication in an emergency.
7. Team PT/DC's will only be made public after the game if all players on the team consent to their release.
8. All Game PT's including all scum PT's will automatically be released after Team Mafia.

9. There will not be Spectator/Dead PT's.

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 publicly 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.
6. To repeat: If you have any doubt about whether something is against the rules or not, PM your Listmod and ask.


Your Teammates are Always Innocent Until Proven Guilty


1. You may at no time say, indicate, insinuate, etc. that your Team Mafia teammates are or might be anything other than town. This includes in any hypothetical situation.
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. If you require assistance from the moderator or any event organizer, there will be a tiebreak penalty.
2. To replace a team member, you must PM T-Bone 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 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.
2. Having the best average score in the Game Survey.
3. Having the best score in the Team Survey.
4. The TM2023 Mods vote on a winner.
