    Hey, hey! We've been invited to Season 8 of the Inter-Forum Mafia Championships! The biggest inter-forum event on the internet, Champs has had over 320 different communities participate, with over 770 total representatives. I represented us last year, and I'll probably gush about it later, but this is the OP, so I'll get on with it.

    Champs is hosted on Mafia Universe, and you will need to register an account there should you be chosen to represent. The qualifying rounds will be held from mid-May to early July, so as long as you're free at some point in that period, that's fine. Should our representative qualify for the semifinals, those will be held in July and August, with the finale in August or September.

    This year's setup is an open, low-to-medium power 15er called Gold Rush. For more details on the setup, and on the tournament in general, here's a link to the general information thread on MU.

    MU also has a section on what to expect, which I'll quote here because it's pretty relevant:
    Fair warning: these games are much higher volume than anything we've ever played here. My qualifier last year reached 3000 posts (and it was probably the slowest qualifier), while my semifinal reached 2700 posts on the first in-game day alone. If you don't think you can keep up with 1000-2000 posts per in-game day, you probably won't enjoy the champs experience.

    The deadline for selecting a representative is May 7, although the sooner we send our choice, the better. If you wish to nominate someone (including yourself), please name them in this thread by April 30, after which voting on our representative (and backup) will begin should there not already be a clear decision.

    Okay now that I've made the obligatory formal intro post I can gush about champs wheeeeeeeee

    It's fun as heck - you meet a lot of new people, there's a lot of talk in spec chat, and of course there's the actual mafia.
    I recommend reading a couple previous champs games (or more, if you want) to get a feel for how it goes down though - it's really hectic, and it can be a bit much for people who aren't used to it.

    My time last year was a heck of a ride - my qualifier was my third ever game. I posted 60 times and was still one of the lower posters in the game. Ate a N1 kill, somehow got picked for a semis sub despite getting swept by the wolves, and subbed into possibly the worst wolfgame I've ever seen T_T
    It takes a lot out of you, but it's also a huge adrenaline rush.

    I might have even understated my warning about content, though. People post more than 100 times a day phase there (and even more if you get certain people in your qualifier), which can get really tough to read at times. Please consider carefully before you volunteer for this.
    Still though, you just have to put some time and thought into the game, and you'll probably have a lot of fun (if you can really consider mafia fun? lol).

    And with that, I'd like to nominate @bbninjas if he wants the slot this year, but I am also absolutely down to throw my hat in the ring again! :D

    (i refuse to have 2 sweeps be my one and only champs legacy, that was painful as heck lol)

    Thanks for the nom! I am too busy to do it this year unfortunately, so I'll happily let you represent @Ephemera. :)

    aw
    you're a better player than me lol

    if anyone else wants to rep us though, i'd be glad to be your backup! last year's champs was my third game, so don't feel like you have to be a great player or a veteran to try to be the rep!
    do look at MU to see if that's your thing, but if it is, go for it!

    @Jabberwock - i don't know if you're necessarily down for this type of thing, but you did beat bb and me soundly last game :D
    Would you be interested in representing PB?

    i feel a bit awkward - i don't mind repping us again but also there are mafia players here who i'm sure are better than me so uh idk
    i can put myself down as our rep tentatively if this thread doesn't get any more interest T_T
    we do still play mafia here, right?

    I appreciate the offer but I wouldn't be able to participate at anywhere near the level of activity MU requires xD

    You should go for it Eph! You're a great mafia player and fully deserve to rep the Beach again. Best of luck if you do! :D

    (And I certainly hope we still play mafia here — I'd love to join another game soon. :) )

    Since no one else has expressed interest (yet), I'll put myself down as our representative in the MU thread, if that's fine with everyone?
    If anyone else expresses interest before May 7, we can work that out before then.
