Quote from Typhon »I thought I'd come join the "poor Eco" thread instead of pinging Eido every few seconds on seconds to say poor Eco.
God. Not only is he 100% right, but it's so... clearly reasoned. Like this is how mafia is meant to be played.
Town did not deserve this guy.

Quote from Killjoy »KoolKoal: Feel free to take this with a grain of salt since self meta isn't particularly helpful, but I think I get scumread mostly for style over substance, but also for a certain lack of substance over style. It's not so much what I AM posting most of the time (though sometimes that can seem bad) but what I'm NOT posting. I've been told I come to non-obvious conclusions a lot, so when I post, quite a bit of the time there's jumps in logic that people can't follow and they think that's scummy. I get that accusation about a lot of questions I ask specifically. People call them "busy work" when the questions are legit etc.
As far as things to ignore, I can't think of anything. I would suggest you focus less on what I'm doing and more on how I'm doing it. That's probably more likely to be accurate. Like I've just said, what I do tends to come off a little weird, but if you look for how I do it, mindset comes into play and maybe you figure out something useful.

Quote from Wheat_Grinder »yeah ideally I'd want to see larger games. But I think the next hard support is like 7 players per team for three games, and I think you 100% need 3 games at that point. Supporting 21 players is hard.

In my mind, this is the primary target for a bigger event. If we can't hit 21 players then I think the best we can do is run a bunch of 3-mans if we run anything at all. I don't think 5-player games are workable.

More latercongrats you thought of the gambit first it was all your idea and you are the greatest here have some recognition and attention.
Quote from Rhand »I have been thinkinng about what happened with the whole Kpaca/Azrael teamchat situation.
Either you have to forbid talking about what was said in teamchat or allow it.
Making it forbidden is tough, because teammates can change your mind on things, and if you can’t say that in thread, you seem like a liar.
Allowing it can automatically create situations like the one we had now, because what Kpaca said would be allowed, but it created a situation in another game. And even if a mod rules that you have to ignore that, you cannot unsee what you saw.
I think allowing it is the only way.
And because of that, I think the games don’t need to run simultaneously.
In spec chat Vezok said that mafiascum offers different games with different sizes and teams just choose wether they join or not.
I think that is the way to go. Have teams of max 3, maybe max 4 players, let them sign up as a team with 1 player posting, and have games no bigger than the amount of teams we have registered.
And have a team league with a simple scoring system as incentive to play the games. (something like 2 points for win, -1 for a loss and 1 for being randomed out when too many signed up)
