Theoretically, a good setup will have 50/50 chance of mafia winning. Since the setup is based on winning when only a certain amount of players are eliminated then the more eliminations there are, the closer you get to victory.
So, let's say you win 50/50. If you win as mafia, then you are 2/3 more likely to survive to the end as if you were town (2 other players advancing with you as opposed to 6 other players advancing with you). The current setup would work if there was only a 30% chance of mafia winning; which means the games would have to be unbalanced.

Does anyone know how to make a latter? That is something that could maybe be an entirely different thread off of this forum that would have a list of players and ordered ranking of personal mafia wins, town wins, 3rd party wins, etc, and overall wins and losses. Then as games are completed, the latter is updated by a mod specifically assigned to it (even if its just a volunteer mod that has time on their hands).
That way, our game play doesnt exactly change to throwing everyone under, its still a team effort, and records are just kept and maybe the top 3 could have awards. And there could be separate awards for things like: First to 3 mafia wins, First to 3 3rd party wins, and stuff of that sort. Even most MVP awards.
Just my thinking, but if we can work out all the kinks in this tournament, I still think it will be interesting .
