Mafia tournament - Open Setups

Postby Rodion on Mon Apr 09, 2012 9:59 pm

I had this idea of making a rather big tournament using only open setups. We'd start at 40 players and they'd be split into 4 10-player games (I have a specific setup in mind with 7 townies and 3 mafia). All winning players would progress to the next round. The next round would heavily depend on how the 4 games shaped up.
If mafia won all 4 games, we'd only have 12 players advancing to round 2.
If mafia won 3 games, we'd have 16 players.
If 2, 20.
If 1, 24.
If town won all games, we'd have 28 players advancing to round 2.

In order to probably fit rounds that start with an unusual ammount of players, I could invite eliminated players (or players that did not join the tournament) to fill up slots and make games have a decent size. Those players would try their best to win as usual, but would not advance to the following rounds upon winning a game.

Tournament is over when 20% or less players remain (that means we'll keep playing as long as 9+ players advance to a certain round, but if there are 8 or less players advancing, they are considered the tournament winners).

We could use 1 week day-deadlines and 48-hour night deadlines to make sure the tournament will not drag down for several months.

I can't mod 4 games at once as per site rules, so I'd need at least 3 volunteers to take the burden with me (they can still play the tournament and I'll assign them to mod a game in which they are not playing).

Do you think that is feasible?
Can we get 40 players to do that?

There is no limit to co-modded games. All you need is one volunteer to help mod. All 4 games can be modded by the same team. After thinking, this would make sense, since some mods are more lenient on deadlines etc.

Anyways, if we could get some Entertainment Team support, medals around the table would help get the 40 players.

Might as well post the open setup now, so we can have all discussions on various aspects running concurrently in the interest of efficiency.

If I were organnizing the tournament, I would commission two two-man teams that each mod two games, that way the mods can participate in the tournament as well. And Talos knows that we'll need all the players we can get to pull this off.

I also sign up and volunteer to mod.

Sounds fun! Would be hard to get 40 active players though. I would join and also be willing to help mod.

I am in, and I could help carry the burden of one of the games! It would be my first game modding so would probably want a Co mod so it could run smoother ;). I would also be willing to mod any second round games or third round games so long as it wouldnt interfere with me playing :).

Yeah I'd play/be willing to help mod. If you want to add medals, you can PM Sully and me with the specifics to get an [Official] tag.

If 40 is hard to find you could do a double elimination style turny. 4 games, people play in 2 at once. This is a bit hard to explain without a picture...


A---------B
.....E.....
.....|.....
.....G.....
.....|.....
.....F.....
C---------D

. are for spacing, ignore them -- indicate winning players advancing.

So A plays B and C plays D. A + D and C+B have the same player pool. Winners from A+B advance to game E (6-14 players) and C+D advance to F. Winners from E+F play in a final game G. If scum win in every single game G could be small (4) Perhaps you could add in a MVP from games A-D who was later eliminated.

3 rounds of games, idk it could work if you can't get 40 players.

If you think you can get 40 interested players I'd be willing to join/help but to be honest I think it's a bit of a tall order.
