Default Mafia "All-Star" Game?

Would there be any interest in having a Mafia "All-Star" Game? Basically, this would happen once a year. The mafia community would vote via PM for who they think are the top 10 mafia players (from the active players list). The top 8 players would be invited to play in the All-Star Game, with the #9 and #10 players being put on the replacement list.

The game would most likely run alongside the normal mafia games, so that the majority of the mafia community doesn't have to wait to play while the All-Star game is being run.

Maybe have the players vote on a host? That would have the game with the top mafia players run by the top host. Only problem I see is that the host could also be in the Top 10, but that's why we have a top 10 instead of a top 8.

Indeed, if we can get enough agreement, when? How many votes can you submit(I'd say 5 for players) and what theme?

I'm all for it, I guess. How would it be different from the other games, as far as things like roles, the theme, etc?

Well for one it would be all experienced players, I'm sure we could also do special things for roles.

What I'm thinking we'll do is have each player have one vote, in which rank who they think is the top 10. They also vote for the Top 3 hosts (this gives us some backups in case the top host doesn't want to do it). Once all votes are in, whoever has the most 1st place votes is ranked #1, whoever has the most 1st+2nd votes is ranked #2, and so on and so forth.

Perhaps we could have a list of possible themes and have players vote on them as well? Either that, or have the host decide, or have it be Normal mafia.

Sounds good, we can have a non-partial judge for sending the PM's to. Maybe a mod would participate.

sounds good to me. Only problem I see which has kinda been said but not explicitly is that most hosts would want to participate.

I see the idea purely to allow players in the All-Star game to boast to everyone else.

I like this idea! Maybe once a year, we could have a 3 league un-merge, with 3 different leuges, ie all stars, semi-experienced and fairly new. It would give players a reason to try better their skills.

So far, I've received overwhelming support for the idea both in this thread and in the chat (Felixrain has been the only one who's expressed negative concerns about it thus far), so I think I'm going to go ahead and implement this.

If you're all okay with having me receive and tally the votes, I'll do it, however, I understand how some may think I could be influenced while tallying and I can find a more impartial judge if necessary. I won't send out any PM's asking for votes until this is discussed.

I think, considering you play mafia, and are good at it, he thought perhaps someone else should do it.

I'm all for it, but perhaps have your ranking be the inverse of the votes you got added up. (Get 1, +10 points, get 7, +3 points. Most points wins kind of thing)

I'm fine with hosting or moderating the votes, I don't need to play in any games other than the regular ones.

EDIT: I'm also perfectly capable of hosting regular, perfectly balanced games. I just prefer to host fun, strange games that could easily end up broken

Alright, I'll make a more "official" thread then.
