Best Gimmick category for next year please.
2) Emma Magorobi. You had a rather chilly break-up.
3) Yep! You and Esooa were voted the greatest wolf team of Season 13.
4) You're an AtE vig. If someone uses AtE in the thread, you can dayvig them. Use is limited to two shots, and if they flip jester you die.
Yeah, I'm watching the sequel, Two Piece.
2) No, but they ran mountainous arsonist in Season 12.
3) Personally, I haven't ruined any, but I don't know about Amy or vanity.
5) They're "discouraged", like using the word lynch in games is.
Greetings. I am future Alison. While spectating Season 22 of the annual Mafia Championships on the VR microchip implanted in my brain, I was suddenly sent to the year 2021 by a strange distortion in the fabric of space and time.
In three days, the distortion will correct itself and I will be yanked back to my own time. Until then, ask me anything about the future and I'll answer as truthfully as I can. I am going to go to bed soon, but once I wake up, I'll answer any questions posed to me.
Can you summarize the point of this article in one sentence?
It's fine to have emotions in mafia. Just be aware of what effects they have on you.
For 1), remember that a scumread is a suggestion for your alignment, not a suggestion about your playing skill. For 2), remember that you're playing a no stakes forum game and there is no rational reason to get this invested into it.
The biggest thing is that people need to stop feeling personally offended or attacked when accused of being mafia. All the other person is doing is suggesting that modbot randomized the order of a list of player names and you were in the top 2 or 3. Well over 90% of immaturity in mafia could be combated if people stopped taking scumreads like personal attacks and freaking out about it.
I would also suggest that people make an active effort to suppress their emotions in mafia but I don't think anyone would do that regardless. Nevertheless, it's important to keep context in mind and remind yourself that you're playing an internet forum game for no stakes - it's hard to get too wound up about something like that.
If you just keep those two framings in mind - not taking scumreads personally and remembering the game has no stakes - it's hard to get worked up to the point you lose your cool.
I don't see the difference.
Self-voting shouldn't be mechanically prohibited. I've self-voted as town before. It's very rare - I've been playing mafia since 2009 and I could count the number of times I've done it on the fingers of one hand. But I have done it. Sometimes it's because thread health is degenerating and it is beneficial for the game to just have everyone keep quiet for 24 hours and see a flip. Sometimes it's because of edge cases where Vengeful is at play or whatever.
However, self-voting in order to AtE is annoying. But this must be enforced by the players, not the host. Stop giving passes to people who throw temper tantrums and self vote in mafia games. Policy that $%#!. If I see someone vote themselves, I assume that they want to die, and I am happy to grant them their wish. If people see that this tactic loses its effectiveness, they will stop doing it.
What about designing setups that aren't broken by a PR being able to target the same person twice?
JRAB was recorded as wolf win right? Based on the guesses?
Game was declared a no contest as a result of Mystery Player (BlueKang) being banned from MafiaUniverse. Reason was not announced in advance because doing so would prejudice your guesses. Subbing someone into his slot would damage game integrity, and calling it for one faction or the other would be unfair to the other if they had a chance of winning.
Therefore, we agreed that the best option was to declare it a draw and make use of townie guesses to see how the game would have gone if BK had not been banned.
MP submits Echks/Doki/KZA.
Nanook submits Echks/SPF/Doki.
SPF submits Echks/Nanook/Doki.
Doki submits SPF/KZA/Nanook.
The game is declared an unofficial mafia win for CFC stat tracking purposes, for the following reasons:
1) Doki indicated that she would have voted Nanook over Echks, which would have lost the game in F7.
2) Every townie except Doki felt Doki was a part of the wolf team, which would probably have gotten her executed at some point.
3) No townie suspected Esooa, the deepest wolf.
