That isn't true NJ. People get better as they play more mafia. Beginners would not pick up the game any faster if they were playing with Experts than with Beginners, unless they were teammates with those Expert players, in which case they would likely simply be ordered around. Besides, my proposals, particularly the third proposal, would ensure that, after a Beginner has established a solid base of knowledge about the game, that Beginner would be able to compete in Standard games like anyone else, and there would be more Expert players playing in Standard games, due to the ability to reserve more spots for higher profile Standard games.
I disagree with what you said, but also think that, given what you said, you should support these rules changes, particularly point 3. It would also be nice if a few more Expert players gave their opinions on this, as there are a lot of newer/middle players speaking up right now, and not many Experts. I have talked to a few of you on IRC, and thus far no one has objected to anything I posted, but it would be nice if active players could post their opinions, even if they are simply rehashes of what other players have already said.
