I think scum doublevoter(but no more than double) is okay, as long as the town has enough power to compensate. Scum lynchproof is never, ever, ever okay. The lynch is literally the town's #1 weapon. The scum should never be immune to that.
Unreliable Cops are bastard roles that shouldn't exist unless it's pretty obvious that they could be unreliable.
There is just no need to include roles like that. They aren't fun for players, they're just for trolly Mods that want to see players fall on their faces. You can include challenging roles that don't actively penalize people for doing what they are supposed to do.
The problem with Normals these days is that they're too bland, too blase, too cookie-cutter.
That's extremely subjective. It's why normals are so good - it puts the focus on the players, on behavior, and on interactions, and less on weird roles and egotistical game designers who try to make the setup about themselves over the people playing in it.
I can only assume that nobody good is ever assigned to be scum in these games. Because like, in a low power game where everyone is equivalent skill level, the scum should win far more(70/30 approx) than the town should. Being the informed minority is highly valuable here.
#1. We fire a PCQ, right now. Within 24 hours. Give people a couple of weeks to come up with submissions, then votes fire.
#2. We abolish complexity restrictions on League games. The judges decide what to run as the next league game - whatever they feel is appropriately balanced.
#3. We keep the mini and specialty queues as is, but the normal queue is renamed the standard queue, and can contain whatever size or complexity the host in question feels like running. This would allow our hosts more flexibility in designing games to fit the tastes of the playerbase, whether towards larger or smaller games, or towards greater or lesser complexity. Effectively, we'd be introducing variance into the list. We won't always have small games, we won't always have large games, and you never quite know exactly how feisty or creative the moderator might be feeling.
We can only abolish the League if I win. and am the champion of the only League season ever.
Seriously though, I don't know what the League has to do with anything.
Normals are boring.
And more specifically, they have become too easy for scum to manipulate. Voting patterns can't be correctly analyzed anymore. Wagon's can't be analyzed anymore. You can't lynch someone for claiming VT anymore, because in a Normal, half of the people are VT these days. Scum have figured out that they can just sit around and literally do **** all nothing(like Seppel does in literally every game ever), because eventually the townies are going to lynch SOMEONE, and if the scum don't put themselves out there at risk, statistically, townies are more likely to lynch each other. And then when they go to analyze info later, they're more likely to..continue to lynch each other. It just seems like Normals have been 'solved', so to speak, by good scum players.
But the League isn't Normal Only, is it? I thought there was a mini or something in the normal schedule this year that I deliberately didn't play in because I typically don't like minis.
I don't think Normals have to be fully abolished. Presumably SOME people like them. But we should be able to at least have a rotating schedule or something.
This somewhat relates to an ongoing game, but I feel compelled to talk about it, and would feel compelled to do so no matter what my alignment is, so.
I am sick of people replacing out of games. I understand that sometimes things come up and it's unavoidable. But mostly it seems to be 'welp I decided that this game isn't for me, peace'...only to sign up for a new game a week later.
I am *especially* sick of people replacing out of games when they are under pressure. This is a fully *****ty thing to do and should not even be allowed. If you are in claim range and replace out(again, barring very exceptional circumstances that would prevent you from playing again any time soon anyway), you should be modkilled and put on probation. It is completely infuriating that people just replace out, and then the town is stuck holding their dicks while the new person replacing in just gets a pass from the past player's behavior, because there is no way for them to explain it. This has happened to me too many times, in too many games. I can't take it anymore.
Thanks for taking the time to work with us and accommodate us how you can, Curse Guys. It is very much appreciated, especially considering that you're doing so literally just to be nice to us. I'm thrilled with all of this.
I like the idea of 100ppp, but 50 is acceptable too.
I don't know what to suggest as far as 'need more ready setups'. That seems like a great problem to have, but it's still understandably a problem.
A)You can only view 20 or whatever posts per page. This is like viewing the internet in 1999.
B)Preview Post does not refresh the page.
C)Multi-quoting, as stated.
Mostly, I'm like Killjoy these days. I write everything in notepad, manually sorting out the different areas that I want to copy/paste, etc. As petulant as it sounds, I don't really want to have to put extra effort into my casual no prize internet word based game.
