Welp, that's the game. While I do think there are some things I definitely could've balanced better, town did basically hand scum the game by no-lynching every day (that, and the game was, if anything, town-sided).

Role PM's:

Cicada - Panacea


Prim - Genesis


Yugi - Skitter


frogue - Tattletale


Randomness - Trickster


Riki - Assault


CBP - Battery


Skraal - Clockblocker


Kermit - Weld


Deamon - Jack Slash


MW - The Siberian


And here are the night actions.

yeeeeeep

Also, I actually was gonna make Skitter JOAT (with a one-shot investigation rather than a 1-shot watcher) and Tattletale a Tracker, (Genesis would've been replaced by a 2-shot Watcher, which would've likely been Imp), but rejiggled the balance at the last second. So there's your validation yugi.

(with a one-shot investigation rather than a 1-shot watcher)
...JOATs normally have a watcher component?

But yeah if I can elaborate rather than just looking like I'm bitter that game just... wasn't fun. It was super frustrating day 1 when nobody was willing to actually get a lynch and when I made my (admittedly bad) tracker claim everyone just jumped on me and seemed to be like, totally unwilling to actually consider other people and the person who was (well, at the very least looked like they were) super scummy through both day phases.

Also, inactivity people. It kills games and makes for really easy scum victories.

I have learnt that I can't push games.

Murder really did a good job undermining my position from the get go, and I really shouldn't have launched an attack on him without a case, even though my gut told me he was definitely mafia.

I was suspecting Deamon honestly, because he wasn't using the neigbourhood to confirm info, which implied he didn't need/want it, but thought Murder was a more important target in endgame, since I already knew Deamon was a neighboirizer.

Was just glancing, but since I'm here, I just wanted to say I think you're better than you're giving yourself credit. Murder only undermined you because you second-guessed yourself so hard, and wouldn't push - been there myself and have the t-shirt to prove it. If you'd committed more strongly, pointed out the extreme flaws in his case (using tenuous logic and fringe possibilities to explain his scumread on you.), and slowly fleshed out your gutread, you'd have done well.

Basically, an active push requires commitment, which is something I think we all struggle with. (Hence my constant faked aggressiveness. One extreme to avoid the other.) Don't sell yourself short though, you have pretty good reads, and gut is *not* a bad reason at all.

Unfortunately, most of Town just didn't care about the game whatsoever, and I don't know if it could have been saved. I don't mean to be a jerk, and I understand that SC2 & old game bitterness hurt this one, but I do feel that it needs to be said - People who consistently join a game only to go afk should seriously reconsider joining. It hurts everyone.

Kudos to those who actively participated, whether they were right or not. You guys are what makes any game fun.

All in all, for what this spectator's opinion is worth, I liked the design and loved the memey humor.

Eh, that was unfortunate. Personal notes, I let myself get strung along pretty heavily by MW for most of the game. I was close with my suspicions I guess, but the lull in activity meant everything stalled out when I was getting a handle on how to approach things? Probably shouldn't be playing Mafia as a novice without the willingness to study the meta game in depth. To me the game felt solid, nice and interesting when active but the drop out and the subsequent activity loss was a bummer. Anyways, good game all.

Ditto.

In case my day one freak out needed more explanation, it was mostly because of my role. I got super skittish over trying not to look like mafia so that town wouldn't lose two people in quick succession. Being the closest role in the game to a normal town villager guy with no abilities - in fact, one with a disadvantage in regards to the team, imho - was kind of rough, and when Riki, my partner, died due to inactivity, I kind of just wanted the game to be over at that point.

I think the biggest reason that I sort of fell out of it at the end was the lack of daily vote count updates on the last dayphase. That lack of input and reminder of time made me feel like the game was already over, as did my stance as a dead man walking.

You won't have to worry about me being a shitty teammate anymore, because I've decided that this isn't really for me.

For what it's worth, I didn't mean either you (CBP) or Cicada. Honestly think you're both being too hard on yourselves, but I understand if the game's not fun, there's no point.

Take care, and here's wishing you the best.
