    A replay of the game: Solo Judge Win CARRY AMAZING ENDING.SC2Replay
    SC2 Account Name: Altectech
    In-game name and player #: give me incense master or give me death - #4
    A brief description on why you think you (or the player you're nominating) deserves to be MVP: I managed to clutch a game as Judge with 6 Town remaining, all the Triads are dead, and a committed town / true neutral leaning amnesiac ( who could not convert to town ) and Mass Murderer remained. Mass Murderer was killed by Jailor the next night after spy was killed, leaving only 5 town, 1 town loyal amnesiac, and me as judge. I managed to use both my courts to solo lynch the sheriff and jailor back to back. Then spoke with "the neuts" at night to try to put attention on my "allies" (I had none). Managed to get #5 and #1 lynched next, then ending the game by pretending to be #11 and convincing #2 that #11 was indeed judge. #11 was convinced #2 was judge even! No one suspected me.

    I managed to manipulate the town into lynching each other and clutched the ending by getting town to lynch each other to secure the solo judge win at the end, as well as getting the Judge Dredd achievement, all while having no allies and taking on literally half the lobby.

    -Mafia- (1811).SC2Replay

    I was Yuno Gasai. My role was Vigilante. I read the game perfectly. I carried town to victory.

    My claims for this game:
    - 3 was AFK and shouldn't be lynched
    Spoiler : Reason :
    6 got me trialed on day 2. I revealed my role on trial. Six people voted innocent and 3 was the only one who voted guilty. I assumed he went AFK after guiltying me because he was a default name who barely talked and because I gave a good defense on trial. Everyone spammed "INNOOOOOOO" during the voting phase, so I figured 3's guilty vote was a fluke. I was right. 3 died later to a heart attack. He was Lookout, which made it a little harder for me to win.

    - 5 was Mass Murderer
    Spoiler : Reason :
    On day 4, 5 claimed Detective to me in PM's. His last will was awful, so I lynched him after getting a role and last will from 12.

    - 6 was Jester
    Spoiler : Reason :
    I was annoyed by a Jester on night 1. On day 2, I quickly deduced she was Jester when she started trolling me. She got me trialed by claiming I was Mass Murderer. However, I didn't let her get me angry. She pushed for a lynch on 3 immediately after my trial, but I knew lynching 3 was a bad idea. In fact, based on the way the game was moving on day 2, I knew that 3 was a perfect lynch target for evils. 5, 6, 10, 11, and 12 voted 3. Four of them were not town. If I voted up 3, 3 would've definitely gotten lynched by the town and opportunistic evils. This would've turned the game in a different direction. I was already frustrated that 6 forced me to reveal at a point when Doctor and Bodyguard were dead. Also, this was a save where Town Random and Any Random were the only slots available for town protectives. 'Town Killing' excluded Bodyguard, so the Bodyguard took the second Town Protective Slot. 3 ended up dying by himself, but

    6 was the toughest challenge for me. I'm glad Mafia killed her on night 3.

    - 10 was Mafia or Neutral
    - 11 was Mafia or Neutral
    - 12 was Sheriff
    - 15 was Town

    Extra Notes:
    - 6 was BBMIRUS. At the end of day 3, she threw me off by claiming Sheriff to me in PM's, but I'll learn how to handle scum like her.

    1 - Disguiser - Ms Piggy (Varcron, 15.6k points)
    2 - Coroner - 0.09 percenter (Nargon, 5.9k points)
    3 - Doctor - Destroyer of Worlds (Fuzz, 831 points)
    4 - Mayor - Exterminator (RobotChicken, 6.8k points)
    5 - Bus Driver - Double Stuffed Oreo (merlin, 5.9k points)
    6 - Vigilante - Mayor (JOOYOUNG, 31.1k points)
    7 - Detective - Vincentio (Paradox, 42.3k points)
    8 - Survivor - Bus Driver (LagAttack, 20.6k points)
    9 - Godfather - Elite Beat Agent (janiabrosis, 5.4k points)
    10 - Arsonist - Sergio Greco (Cataphract, 46.2k points)
    11 - Investigator - Mr. Failure Rate (Ulala, 22.7k points)
    12 - Blackmailer - Orazio Rossi (BallsSoup, 9.5k points)
    13 - Witch Doctor - Billy the Rapper (Billy, 430 points)
    14 - Lookout - Destroyer of Anus (LorenHusky, 15.6k points)
    15 - Doctor - Jo (HydraBisque, 173 points)

    The Nomination: Varcron

    Night 1
    Varcron immediately notices the low spy chance and informs the rest of the mafia that he has a plan for the following day and to trust him on it.

    Mafia kills 2 - Coroner - 0.09 percenter (Nargon, 5.9k points).

    8 Town, 3 Mafia, 1 Arsonist, 1 Survivor, 1 Witch Doctor remain

    Day 2
    Varcron claims to be sheriff who detected 3 as Arsonist. 3 happened to be bussed with 14, so he switches his accusation to 14. This tricks the town into believing his sheriff claim as an executioner would not switch claims on a bussed target.
    14 - Lookout - Destroyer of Anus (LorenHusky, 15.6k points) is lynched and flips Lookout

    7 Town, 3 Mafia, 1 Arsonist, 1 Survivor, 1 Witch Doctor remain

    Night 2
    Varcron disguises themself as 6 - Vigilante - Mayor (JOOYOUNG, 31.1k points).
    Mafia kills 11 but 11 gets healed.

    6 Town, 3 Mafia, 1 Arsonist, 1 Survivor, 1 Witch Doctor remain

    Day 3
    Varcron immediately takes command of town having received the vig LW, (this is also why you shouldn't include your role or role identifying info in a lw!), the former vig shot a NI target, so Varcron now pushes for their lynch. They flip Arsonist.

    6 Town, 3 Mafia, 1 Survivor, 1 Witch Doctor remain

    Night 3
    The godfather alt tabs out due to falling asleep, leaving mafia to -target.
    Mafia kills 3 - Doctor - Destroyer of Worlds (Fuzz, 831 points)

    5 Town, 3 Mafia, 1 Survivor, 1 Witch Doctor remain

    Day 4
    Varcron takes command of the town and asks for roles and lws. I am the survivor in this game, but am working to help town win (In my opinion survivor is much easier to win with when you actively help town since you're NI the first four nights, and by night 5 evils usually can't spare a kill on you)

    I recognized the green highlighted Mayor name as one that JOOYOUNG uses, so seeing a player as experienced as him take command of the town wasn't surprising to me and I encouraged town to take 6 on as the town's leader, not even realizing myself that Varcron had disguised as 6.

    13 - Witch Doctor - Billy the Rapper (Billy, 430 points) is blackmailed and is trialed first. He leaves right before the vote count comes in, but the vote count was 5-3, with Varcron casting an inno vote, town gets to trial another player.

    7 - Detective - Vincentio (Paradox, 42.3k points) is trialed next and Varcron again commands for an inno verdict.

    Town pushes for 4 to be trialed causing 4 to reveal as Mayor. The day ends with no lynch, but the Witch Doc left the game.

    5 Town, 3 Mafia, 1 Survivor remain

    Night 4
    With all the towns roles Varcron shares them with the mafia and they elect to bus driver, assuming he'll be busy protecting mayor.
    Mafia kills 5 - Bus Driver - Double Stuffed Oreo (merlin, 5.9k points)

    4 Town, 3 Mafia, 1 Survivor remain

    Day 5
    The Mayor very quickly pushes 12 - Blackmailer - Orazio Rossi (BallsSoup, 9.5k points) to a trial where everyone votes guilty except then Godfather and the Survivor who abstain.

    4 Town, 2 Mafia, 1 Survivor remain

    Night 5
    4, 8, and 11 are all confirmed not-mafia. The mafia should ideally target one of them, but 4 is untouchable due to 15 healing them as doc, and 8 is survivor which would be a wasted shot in a sense. So they kill the only confirmed non-mafia player remaining in 11 - Investigator - Mr. Failure Rate (Ulala, 22.7k points)

    3 Town, 2 Mafia, 1 Survivor remain

    Day 6
    9's suspicious voting patterns and the fact that he's one of the few "unconfirmed" players gets him trialed immediately by mayor. He is unanimously lynched by everyone except the survivor. During the discussion 7 is cleared as most likely not mafia for how hard he went after the blackmailer.

    9 - Godfather - Elite Beat Agent (janiabrosis, 5.4k points) is lynched.

    3 Town, 1 Mafia, 1 Survivor remain

    Night 6
    Mafia is in a very difficult situation.
    If they kill the detective then it clears 15 as the detective has seen 15 visit the Mayor.
    They can't kill the mayor because the doctor is healing them.
    If they kill 15 then it will be very difficult to compete with the 7's detective last will.
    Arguably the best move here would be to shoot the survivor which has been helping town - especially since at this point in time I was still fooled by 6 and even included a note in my last will saying 15 should be mafia (although 7 could have cleared 15, and the survivor is the least threat to mafia, so offing the survivor is also a risky strategy)

    It seems like there are no good options, so Varcron holds his shot in order to sow more confusion

    Day 7
    At this point in time with no vig shots since the disguiser jump I realized what had happened (and updated my lw the next night accordingly in the event that mafia tried to kill me in the night), but as I was a neutral faction, I wanted to see town figure it out - Varcron had me fooled the majority of the game, could he fool the rest?

    The day passes with no lynch, and 7 is pushing for the vig to shoot to prove that he is vig.

    Night 7
    With 7 pushing for vig shots Varcron has no choice but to shoot 7 - Detective - Vincentio (Paradox, 42.3k points)

    2 Town, 1 Mafia, 1 Survivor remain

    Day 8
    Varcron immediately defends his lack of shots by claiming that he would have thrown if he had shot (although this is technically not true, whether or not it is true doesn't actually matter, he just has to convince the mayor that it's true)

    15 had been cleared by the detective so the mayor decides to trial the survivor claim. I explain why 6 is the disguiser and that town auto-loses with a mislynch here - but Varcron prevails and sways the Mayor and Doctor. The survivor is lynched - Mafia shoots the doctor the next night and wins the 1v1 tiebreak against the mayor the following day.

    Varcron prevails!


    During my last words I tell town they lost the game for themself - although this sells Varcron's performance short - he had EVERYONE fooled as the disguiser for days 3 to 6, and I was the only one that realized what was going on during Day 7 with the rest of the town still being fooled. And this lobby was not a lobby of new players - the only new player alive at the end was 15 - Doctor - Jo (HydraBisque, 173 points). The surviving Mayor, has 6.8k points. The detective that died Night 7 had 42.3k points, the investigator that died night 5 has 22.7k points.

    The mafia had a particularly difficult game with neutral randoms being either strictly anti-mafia, or playing as such. The NK was lynched before they had any kills. And not to put down Varcron's teammates, but their defenses weren't particularly strong despite having been given all the town's info during night chat by Varcron.

    Another major reason that I think this was an MVP performance is that there was really very little luck working in Varcron's favor. He pulled off a strong disguiser play day 2 noticing the low spy and escort chances, got lucky with his target happening to be vig that found NI, and that little bit of luck was all he needed to lead his faction to victory.

    PS. Please stop targeting me every game you're NK, Varcron

    Re: SC2Mafia MVP Contest: 2021 Edition

    Nomination: Of course Paopan! (Col Quatrich Mayor-5)
    Rating: NC-17
    Duration: 52 minutes, ends at Day 9
    Save type: 933 Standard

    This game is lit as fuck! So chaotic and fun to watch.
    It's very confusing from a town's perspective.
    It brings a lot of deceptiveness, which is the whole reason we are attracted to this game.
    The game is hard to win as 1 triad and 1 neutral died n1 whilst a neutral survivor is voting with the town.
    It's literally a 2v10 game by day 2.

    Spoiler : Players and Roles :
    Town Government - (15) Mayor [DeeDeeMaoGI]
    Town Investigative - (6) Detective [ZZorange]
    Town Investigative - (14) Detective [Miharbi]
    Town Protective - (2) Doctor [Mulls]
    Town Protective - (11) Escort [Kira]
    Town Power - (11) Spy [Elros]
    Town Killing - (3) Jailor [Intaro]
    Town Random - (8) Coroner [Moon]
    Town Random - (13) Coroner [Galacta]

    Triad - (4) Dragon Head [TossAngel]
    Triad - (9) Incense Master [Guy]
    Triad - (5) Interrogator [Paopan]

    Neutral Killing - (1) Serial Killer [Altectech]
    Neutral Random - (10) Survivor [Toast]
    Neutral Random - (12) Jester [BrockSamson]

    In-game name:

    A brief description on why you think you (or the player you're nominating) deserves to be MVP:
    - Rolled GF.
    - Called myself out as GF.
    - Said to lynch me tomorrow (played this way every d1 regardless of role when I choose -afk considering how frequently I'm targetted n1 on that name).
    - My mafia was found n1 and n2 and both lynched asap.
    - I won the game.
    - Did a -dn in tribute of the first thing I typed d1.
    - (Watching this in dead chat from <Skwirl>Squirrel's perspective (he was the Janitor lynched d2 and stayed to the end) is probably the most entertaining. They thought I was gamethrowing, cheating, etc..)

    This is probably the game that led to people stealing my name and multiple players using deviations of it when I'm in the match.
