    TBT Mafia General 2.0 - Setups/Bans/Info/Discussion

    Official TBT Mafia General

    Use this official thread to discuss TBT Mafia on the forums in general. Want to talk about the past games? Discuss future strategy? Craft new role or theme game ideas? All of that and more is encouraged in this thread.

    You'll also find information on game types, hosting a game, and the current ban list.

    Introduction to TBT Mafia by KarlaKGB

    Experienced players can skip this



    Game Types

    We have 4 game types of Mafia at TBT: Main, Experimental, Newbie, and Just For Fun games. You can find information about each game type below. New players are recommend to start off by joining a Newbie game, however they are welcome to join in other games as well!

    We ask that players confine themselves to only playing a maximum of 2 games at a time, and likewise encourage hosts to reject player signups if the player is already alive in 2 other games. (including Just For Fun games) This is for the sake of keeping inactivity from being an active problem in games. The more games you take on, the less attention you can give to each game. If you're not careful with keeping up with every game you're playing in, you could find yourself banned for inactivity, so please watch how many games you join.

    Main Series
    • Large games with experienced hosts and often complex roles/setups
    • Game Size: 18-?? Players
    • Sign up to the queue to host
    • Ban list applies


    Experimental Series
    • Game types that are potentially unbalanced/untested
    • Game size: 10-?? Players
    • Sign up to the queue to host
    • Ban list applies


    Newbie Series
    • Beginner games for new players to get introduced to Mafia
    • Players ideally should move onto other game types after playing up to 3 Nub games
    • Game size: 7-20 Players
    • Queue sign up not necessary, but preferred
    • Ban list applies


    Just for Fun Games
    • Generally experimental ideas, or game designed for low player counts
    • Game size: 3-15 Players
    • Create a thread anytime (please use common courtesy however, it's rude to start a game when there's already 4 games ongoing)
    • Ban list does not apply


    You can see what games are upcoming in the Queue Thread here: Click Me

    Bans

    All official games on TBT follow our official ban list. This ban list is maintained by the mods who participate in TBT Mafia. Hosts should PM them to submit appropriate bans to the list from the categories listed below. Player can PM them if they feel they have been wrongly banned and would like to appeal their ban.

    The List

    Active Bans

    Expired Inactive Bans

    Archived Ban List



    Common categories of violations:

    Inactivity / Quitting - 2 weeks, 1 month on repeat offences
    If you are inactive in a game (as defined by the game's Inactivity rules, read them before playing!) after being issued a written warning in PM from the host, then you may be eligible for banning under the category. Quitting a game before it ends is also an offence of this rule.

    Excessive Spamming - 2 weeks, 1 month on repeat offences
    If you continue to excessively post useless, pointless, or short messages after being issued a written warning from the host, then you may be eligible for banning under the category.

    Aggressive Behaviour - 2 weeks, 1 month on repeat offences
    Forum suspensions, infractions and warnings apply as well

    In accordance with the forum Rules & Guidelines. If you harass, bully, insult or attack another player with malicious intent, then you may be eligible for banning under the category. Tactic and playstyle do not act as exemption from this rule.

    Prohibited Communication I - 2 weeks, 1 month on repeat offences
    If you are caught intentionally communicating privately outside of the thread in a game where private communication is prohibited, then you may be eligible for banning under the category.

    Prohibited Communication II - Ban length depends on incident
    If you are caught communicating with living players after your death or in turn communicating with dead players when alive, then you may be eligible for banning under the category. This also applies to observers and members that were not initially active in the game if found passing information to living players.

    Playing Against Your Win Condition - Ban length depends on incident
    If you intentionally act against your own team with malicious intent, then you may be eligible for banning under the category. This covers a wide variety of possiblities and ban length will be determined depending on the situaton.

    Permanent bans will only be assigned on a case-by-case basis when a player has received multiple bans previously and does not improve. Please note that we reserve the right to ban players for other reasons as well if they come up, no differently than regular bans on TBT. This list only serves as a general outline for reasons you could wind up banned, and an idea of how long. Finally, minor offences will be forgiven for a player's first or second game if it is a Nub Series game. (ex. inactivity)

    Players who are banned receive the following restrictions:

    • Barred from signup, replacement, or observer to any official game posted, or any on-going signups and official games during their ban period*
    • Barred from signing up to any hosting queue during their ban period
    • Removal from any on-going official game signups
    • Any current games on the hosting queue pushed back by one slot, swapped with next host if due to host next

    Can we add the queue to this thread or no? Oath has been calling the other games from your queue unofficial.

    I don't really see much of a point adding it to the main post, mostly because I didn't like how cluttered the old one used to be. If it's something a majority of people would like, I can add it but for now I think it's fine.
