    We need to vote on the nominee for the mafia championships on MU. Each person gets one vote.

    The nominees are:
    Oromagi
    SupaDudz
    WaterPhoenix
    GreyParrot
    Speedrace
    Virtuoso
    drafterman

    If you see your name here and explicitly want to be removed from consideration, let me know ASAP so we don't vote for you despite your unwillingness/inability to play on behalf of the site.

    May want to reconsider drafterman and Speedrace in the final. He temporarily left the site due to Coronavirus and taking care of personal matters. IDK if Speed is willing to represent, he also quit the site

    I don't know anything about the championship- time commitment, software req'd, etc.  If drafterman's in the running, then I'd say he's the best choice.  If speedrace is willing, I'd call him 2nd choice.  I wouldn't call myself better or worse than the rest of this list.  I've never played the game elsewhere so I don't really know what to expect or if my style would translate as well as a more laid back player like GP.

    So I'm not my first choice but I'm game and appreciate the nominations.

    Don't be so hard on yourself, you're a good player, and I am positive at least one person (other than whomever nominated you) will vote for you...

    Warren put your name in the first post, so I assume someone nominated you. I would check with him or look up the previous thread.

    Ok we have oromagi with four votes and water with three if I'm correct? Would like someone to check to make sure. If that's the case and both confirm they're willing we can send oro as our nominee and water as the backup in case something comes up for oro.

    As far as questions regarding the championship I'm happy to answer those I can and refer you to others that can answer what I can't.

    To answer the ones oro raised: time requirement is minimal to play, though obviously the more you put in the better you're likely to do. There are a series of games played in prelims, semifinals, and a final round. Your fellow players vote on who advances with a panel of judges that watch all the games selecting a few more players that played well and that they thought were deserving despite not gaining the vote of their peers. If you do not advance past the prelims (I believe the "top" ~25% of players do) it's only a commitment for one game. I believe they'll send you a survey to gauge your time zone and ideal game from an activity standpoint. They try to match players up so that times line up as much as possible and people who post 15 times a phase aren't often paired with those who post way more.

    Software isn't required, it's all hosted on their site. They have a feature called modbot that does things game mods usually do here (mainly send role PMs, process night actions, and count votes) which has a slight learning curve but is great once you learn. No wrong vote counts ever again!
