No, you don't understand. They wouldn't be in the hospital recovering after surgery, they'd be in prison for ruining multiple people's games on Mafia Universe!Originally Posted by AndrewGreve 1662132307 (#49)I know this is silly to pick on the example given when it isn't the point of the post, but imagine losing your kid long enough to make you stop playing day+ long phases and giving any $%#!s about a 1 month ban on forum Mafia.Originally Posted by Pan 1662130082 (#46)When you can't ask why someone subbed out and you treat them all the same, you should base the policy on the most innocent reasons, not the ones that upset you the most IYAM.Originally Posted by Visorslash 1662110839 (#43)I would also like to see multigaming rules change to account for multiple games each being their own individual sub effort - if you ruin multiple games at the same time, how is that better than one game one month and another the next? You should always think very carefully about signing up for multiple games and frankly, multigaming tends to hurt game integrity and game experience anyway.
Scenario: A player is a god at multitabling with no known issues or sub outs. They are playing 2+ games at the same time. Their child goes missing. They sub out of all of the games.
Is giving them a ban for this appropriate? If you think we should give an exception for this reason, then you go back to asking for reasons and assessing seriousness all over again, defeating the point of the policy.
If not, what about banning multitabling entirely in case life happens? One person having an emergency can't impact multiple games if they can only be in one at a time.
Now if we imaging a player gets in a terrible car accident. In their semi lucid state in-between all the emergency services and waiting to be prepped for emergency surgery their brain won't let them ignore their Mafia game. So they send their host a pm, "car accident, it's real bad please sub"
The player undergoes life saving surgery, but lost both their legs. While grappling with this massive paradigm shift to all their hopes, dreams, and aspirations for life. Trying to comprehend how they will adjust, where can they find any ray of happiness through the fog of despair they are feeling.
A thought occurs, at least they will have a ridiculous amount of time to devote to forum Mafia during their bed rest recovery over the next month before the physical therapy and stress of considering how they will keep their jobs starts. At least they are a full complete person in forum Mafia. In that medium they are able to be their full selves still. They could even imagine forgetting the accident for a few minutes at a time while being fully invested in a reply.
They open up MU and see a pm. "Oh someone is checking to see if I am ok, I suppose that message I sent was ominous."
"You are banned for 1 month for ruining multiple games when you subbed out. Please be more considerate to others, and manage your time/expectations better in future. Feel free to use this month to reflect on how to not be a game ruiner. Regards, mods"
