1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    UPDATE ON MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP

    Originally, the plan was for this season to feature 135 communities. We will now have 165 participating communities, which means that this season alone we will have more different communities represented than all other seasons combined. Approximately 60 communities are participating for the very first time. Of the returning communities, about a dozen of them are resending a previous representative, while the rest are all sending fresh faces.

    As a result of how big this season has gotten, we'll have more games to look forward to than ever before. We will have 11 qualifying games, 2 wildcard games and 1 finale game = 14 games in total.

    All kinds of communities are partipating. Besides the sites dedicated specifically to mafia, we have forums dedicated to popular entertainment, sports, poker, board games, online games, video games, role playing, LEGO, personality type testing, stick figure animations, science, atheism, music, mathematics, comics, students, etc. Some of these communities started playing mafia more than a decade ago; Others just started this year.

    Despite this being a forum event, we will also have communities that play the game via various chat clients (Discord, Telegram, IRC, custom, etc.) and via webcam (with games often streamed on Twitch.tv). And not least, there are communities centered around mafia game variants that you can buy on Steam (Town of Salem and Throne of Lies).

    This season will also have the biggest international scope yet. For the very first time we will have representatives from Romania, Hungary, Chile, Portugal, Ukraine and Czechia as well as our first person representing a Japanese community. We even have our first Native American.

    In addition to this, we of course welcome back countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Poland, Italy, Indonesia, South Africa and Ireland, meaning that we'll have more than 20 different countries represented in total.

    _________________________

    Next update: I am hoping very much I will have all the info I need from all of the representatives by Wednesday at the latest next week. Assuming I do, I will schedule all the qualifying games on this day and get back to you with your representative's start date.

    I feel like in your bio etc. it's really up to you how much you want to talk up your accolades, but I think it'd be interesting to see your philosophy as a player summarized.

    "Forcing scum playing well to constantly and continuously keep acting like town. The words people use ultimately don't matter that much. You have to look at the mindset a post is coming from."

    "Everything in mafia is about the mindset involved."

    "Every flip, every vote cast, every vote /not/ cast is a data point where you're slowly adjusting them towards figuring out the game."

    "Getting shot N1 is a badge of honor sometimes, it just starts getting annoying when it happens 10-12 town games in a row."

    "Poke the null reads with sticks until they aren't null reads."

    "Day One is why I love larger games. I get flips and go back and fill in the pieces, and the scum just start revealing themselves to me in a blur of color."

    "Never. Give. Up."

    - Eido things

    I mean .. yes you can be honest about things .. or just ask someone fun to write something stupid.

    Why would you give people an honest heads-up about you? That does not sound clever to me.

    For the record this was almost eerie to read. I'm guessing those are all things I've said at some point? They sound like things I've said at some point.

    Yeah, it's just a collection of quotes from your mentor QT with Proph. I don't see any of them besides the perpetually-dying-N1 one as specific enough to be disadvantageous sentiments to include. The second to last one is my favorite.

    Sounds like Jan volunteered to write something amusing though!

    You need to supply the pictures you want to get LOCKED UP though.

    Vaimes representing MTGS, so a non-zero chance there will be some overlap somewhere.
