    Congrats to Katze and all the other finalists!

    You are all extremely good Mafia players to make it in the final!

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I can say that I personally would not mind seeing an article in Mafia University from any one of you. I'd be sure to read it and analyze it.

    In any case, know you are some among the best Mafia players out there just for making it in the final. So I want to thank you for participating in this fun and challenging sport.

    A wise person once said, "Mafia is hard" and it goes without saying it is. So congrats on an entertaining season and giving us all something to think about for the next year or so in "how it's done."

    Congrats!

    Haven't been around much thanks to the school semester so I couldn't even follow the Finale. But congrats to @katze for killing it, and congrats to @alexa for coming so close. Both deserving players from what I know outside of this game. I had a pleasure playing with you both on the way there.

    What makes one a good mafia player?

    Many are the skills that can assist the eager bird in their quest to achieve mastery in this wicked game of lies and murder. Which ones to focus on? Some pride themselves on their perception, for surely it’s the ability to tell one’s allies from their foes that is most crucial of all. Others will say - what good is it to see the vultures coming if one can not avoid their sharp beaks and pointed claws? One must develop the ability to persevere, to withstand any assault so they may always outlast their rivals - no matter who they be. Others still will only scowl at all those peacocking youth - and perhaps wisely so. For one, no matter how talented, how able they may be, can never triumph on their own. As such, it is the bird's ability to communicate and work with others of their kind that truly separates the decent from the best.

    However, all those skills, while certainly important, were not the subject of this one’s deliberation. Instead, this one will speak about something far more obscure. A skill that, while not conventionally acknowledged as an essential tool in a proverbial tool box of an elite forum mafia player, can have an even greater effect on one’s image, reputation, and their overall forum mafia experience - assuming one has the patience to master it and the diligence to properly implement it.

    Behold,

  18. ISO #10918
    Article #69: The Skill Of Being A WOKE Specchatter
    - written by @Eagle Owl

    What ultimately matters in werewolf is not how good one actually is at the game. It’s how good one can make others perceive them to be. Therefore, it is imperative that one learns proper methods to maximize the amount of credit one can receive for their accomplishments while softening the blow whenever they get things wrong.

    But first of all, this one will tell a cautionary tale about what one simply mustn’t do. It starts with an example. Picture a young bird in their first appearance in the spec chat. One that has taken only but a glance at the game that everyone has been spectating for days on end. That’s all one needs. One’s goal is set, their mind made up. The time to act is now. The wolves are literally right there. One will be the hero that will expose them, and by doing so, one will take the spec chat by storm and win eternal glory and admiration of their peers.

    Introducing…





    EXHIBIT “A”




    Hmm, that’s actually not too bad. Not half bad? No, one half is precisely how bad it is. But does it mean it’s also half good? It depends on whether one is an optimist or a pessimist, this one would say… But where was this one? Ah, yes, the lesson. There was definitely supposed to be a lesson here somewhere. And the first lesson of this article is:

    1) One should know when to quit.





    There is no shame in guessing wrong. The shame is in staying wrong. What Exhibit “A” has taught this one is that when something happens that clearly demonstrates that the initial guess was off base (such as Wiml hammering katze in F5 in this example), it is foolish to ignore the writing on the wall. Rather than being stubborn and insisting on tunneling the initial guess against all reason, one should consider adjusting their position according to an ever-evolving state of affairs as the game unfolds. This will ensure that one’s final guess has the highest possible chance of being correct and the guesser becoming WOKE.

    2) One should moderate their expectations.



    If a bird flies too close to the sun, a bird is sure to earn herself a headache. It is far more preferable to have a little kitten held securely in one’s claws than it is to be circling a tiger in hopes some misfortune befalls it - it is simply too unlikely to happen over the course of one’s lifespan. With enough small pelts gathered a clever bird will eventually be able to build a WOKE nest for her children. Chasing after the biggest game imaginable will almost always result in one's ruin.


    However, this was only a cautionary tale. It isn’t enough to just know what not to do. To obtain the insights crucial to understanding how one actually does become a WOKE specchatter, this one looked to none other than...





    EXHIBIT “B”



    Now, there is no denying that EXHIBIT “B” is a very skilled player in his own right. It is proven by him being able to make insightful reads such as this:



    However, the harsh truth is that having good reads consistently is hard. What this guide aims to achieve is to assist people who don’t have the patience, the dedication, nor the talent of Exhibit “B” but still want to get RESULTS, FAST. To that end, this one parsed through every message made by Exhibit “B” during the finale game in an attempt to identify the key strategies he uses in order to amplify all his natural gifts and leverage them into becoming a true WOKE specchatter.

    3) One should diversify their reads.



    In other words, don’t put all eggs in one basket. As novel as it might sound to simply put it all ON THE LINE on a single guess, this is not the way of the WOKE. Instead, one should take a more conservative approach and cover their bases. The simple truth is that, the more guesses one takes, the higher the chance of getting one right. To ignore this advice is to ignore the math and thus deny the reality itself.

    4) One should be reminding everyone of their successes.



    If one followed the previous advice of diversifying their reads then it shouldn’t be long before some of those reads begin to flip. The next step is to start quoting each and every one that was correct (preferably during different times of the day for maximum coverage across all timezones). However, Exhibit “B” takes this one step further…



    Why limit oneself to only those correct reads made during the ongoing game? A true WOKE specchatter knows no bounds.

    5) One should be pointing out the mistakes of others.



    Offense is the best defence. Just like it’s important to increase one’s own stature through displays of skill and intelligence, it is also valid to bring light upon the fact that everybody else is just so much worse. When one points out the mistakes others are making, it makes everyone truly appreciate them as someone who would clearly never commit such a blunder themselves.

    Spec chat is a nasty place. It is dab or be dabbed on out there. Not everybody can be a WOKE specchatter, and one has to be willing to do what needs to be done in order to secure their place under the sun.
