I'm more surprised how the village got away with so much early considering 90% of our power roles were outed to the mafia in some way by Night 1how the village managed to fuck this up after the insane start we gave them is completely beyond me
Eagle4 didn't reveal that he had an all fellowship BG on top of his tracker claim. Or maybe he did and Ullar forgot to mention it, idk. We also didn't know that Legolas was imanalt, so we actually failed to kill on two previous attempts: One where he was protected by Legolas, the other when he pledged his sword.I'm more surprised how the village got away with so much early considering 90% of our power roles were outed to the mafia in some way by Night 1
So the village could get all its votes in before the update and the game could finish faster. You need to pay more attention to the game and place a vote before you go to sleep for the night next time if you're going to be sleeping through deadline.Why was I subbed out for SLEEPING? That's kinda unfair.
I'm not trying to call you out specifically, but this was a mindset brought up earlier in the thread. You can't go into this mindset with "oh i can't be able to contribute much, so I'm not going to try." Even if you think it's wrong, some activity is better than no activity and though some people are harsher and less tolerant than others, you can at least learn about some of the NOC playstyles in mafia (if you're willing to read through the 10-11 page day 1 or w/e the fuck it was at least earlier on prior to LightWolf getting a dominant leadership going, it was a cluster of all 40-something people (which most noc games are typically about half this size) posting to make opinions known. This is more of a homage to traditional mafia setups rather than what Smogon mafia has become as a version of diplomacy/team exercises. The best way to understand/contribute is to just jump into it and play in games. Don't feel let down if X calls you retarded, people would say almost anything to try to get to what they want. If you're still hesitant on signing up, you can still be an observer in most games if you PM the host. It's expected that observers don't ruin games by telling people information about the game, but the insight you'd get from almost everyone's perspective is good to have and can provide an idea on how to or how not to play for different scenarios.gg. it was fun to watch but glad i didn't sign up in the end, i wouldn't be able to contribute much >_>
I THINK the last lynchpin game was http://www.smogon.com/forums/thread...auce-quagsires-ditto-win-postgame-up.3459821/ MAGs.Haven't finished the postgame video yet; will probably finish it after work tomorrow. Few thoughts:
1) I think the fact that this game was very beginner friendly was possibly understated in the video (understandable since the call was entirely fairly experienced players). I really appreciated this, although I imagine it may have been easier to be a beginner in the mafia, as I had comrades to explain the more subtle details of what was going on. I can understand how beginning players who got put onto Rohirrim or Gondor could find the game very boring, since they wouldn't really know enough about the way smafia works.
2) I, too, thought this game would be lynchpin. This is kind of a side note, but are there any smafia games with lynchpins that I would be able to read through? Google reveals only "Pokemon Lynchpin Mafia" hosted by AG a while back, which I've read through and found very interesting. Lynchpin seems like an effective way to discourage the village leader system which seems to be the goal a lot of people are trying to achieve with their games so is there a reason there hasn't been a lynchpin mafia recently?
