    Thought: Make the specialty queue be for semi-completed to completed specialty-level setups at any time and the FTQ be for completed specialty-level setups only?

    Alternatively, combine the two. Make the specialty queue the submission zone, and then at regular intervals, an FTQ search for ONE, COMPLETED setup will lead to one being picked off the specialty queue by a fair process.
    This is effectively what I was thinking, but wasn't sure how it was significantly different from just a specialty queue.


    I mean, that would practically going back to Specialty queue system like it used to be (not that I'd mind if we did that).

    Anyways, I think that the problem is that the games submitted to the FTQ aren't ready to run. However, as a host, I can tell that designing, reviewing and doing all the finishing touches IN A MONTH can be really hard to pull off, considering that both the hosts and reviewers do have life outside of MTGS.

    That's part of the reason why I'd like us to bring back the good ol' specialty queue: nowadays, you either need to design and prepare your set-up and then just wait until we decide to have next FTQ submissions and hope to make it. Alternatively, you need to rush your set-up in a span of single month and neither of these option is very appealing to me as a designer.

    By removing the time restriction for submissions, I think we could actually fill our queues as people seem to be more motivated to design specialty games than other types of games AND there's no need to rush the set-ups because you need to fire your game when that stupid jerk of a Mafia Secretary called Bur tells you to launch it.

    I have updated the OP to reflect the new roster.


    And I edited it again to keep all the council members in alphabetical order. :p

    Incidentally, there's a rule in the general rules that says no cryptic claims. Is that just never enforced?


    I think you are confusing this with "No Cryptoclaims", which is a totally different thing.

    (Cryptoclaims refer to claims that you make early in the game and is encoded with some cipher that usually can only be decoded when the encoder tells the key to encryption and that rule IS seriously enforced.)

    ... Thought now that I think about it, should they number be negative if I'm more harmful than useful for the scum team?

    @Azrael: 0/10 as scum, and maybe something like 1/10 as town, I'd say.

    A fair warning, I still haven't gotten around to catching up, so I am not really up to date what's happening.

    216 is Vez again being town.

    @Azrael and @Bur: What do the two of you think of Axel's #225? Bonus points if you can tell me why I'm asking the two of you.

    @Kami: Seriously? So you saying you think I'm town is just a load of bull? Well, at least this'll generate plenty of discussion. Kami needs serious scrutiny after this. If I don't survive, glgl.

    @Mod: Votecount and game status check, please.


    #1: I read the post and felt like it was a combination of big pile of empty words and excuses.
    #2: I'm not certain, but because you want more content from us?

    I'm back and done with all my exams. I feel like I bombed them all, hate life and the gloomy autumn outside, but at least now I can focus more on mafia.

    I'll start catching up now, can't guarantee I'll finish it tonight (I need to be sleeping in 45 mins) but I'll try to post some actual content tomorrow by latest.

    Oh and I forgot this from last post:

    @Highroller: Do you have any non-mechanical opinions about this game? Any stances about other players? Who is mafia and who is town in your opinion?
    While I enjoy talks about mechanics and mafia strategies, I'd prefer to have those discussions somewhere else than in mafia game D1 (= post-game/OoG).

    The "hope Iso is not serious in #54." is weird vote: bur lets go bois!!!


    Have you actually read SJT/highroller interactions? Do you think Iso is right and that those two are mafia together?

    *probably a Neutral that wins once a certain death threshold blah blah.


    From sign-ups:
    The game has medium to high flavour and contains (as far as the host is aware) several unique mechanics. There are nine town and three mafia in this setup.

    My obligatory "It's way too late, I should be sleeping" post.

    I read through highroller/SJT interactions and hope Iso is not serious in #54.


    HEY KAMI

    Interact with me


    I don't like highroller, but I think that has more to do his weird outlooks on playing the game/massclaiming/whatnot.


    Also, I'm probably going to be VLA-ish till Tuesday. I have huge exams on Monday and Tuesday and I need to pass them both, so I'm going to dedicate my energy on reading the course books instead of this thread.

    @whoever was interested: I voted rezombied for their #25, which felt really awkward. The whole "Ha vezok, didn't you read what grape said? Vote vezok" felt really icky to me.

    I'll take a look at SJT/highroller tomorrow, when I don't have to hold a presentation in like 6 hours...

    @Highroller and @KA: I used to think that mechanics > behaviour, but then I started designing games and nowadays I really don't put much trust in pure mechanical stuff, especially since I know some mods (like myself) like to screw over players trying to mod the game/flavour/mechanics...

    Anyways, I'm really against all kind of claiming early on and while it kinda saddens me, I don't think any kind of flavour claiming is a good thing for us...

    But, more stuff tomorrow, it's 3 AM here and I need to sleep.

    In seriousness, Unvote: Iso.


    So, if anyone's curious, that Mon's Goblin Raiders is mine. I'm the Goblin Recruiter. I make goblins, and send them to the graveyard. Every day before dawn. That's my ability. Seriously.

    I assume at least one person has an ability somewhere that does something to things in the graveyard, in which case, hey, knock yourself right out with that goblin. There will be another one tomorrow. You're welcome.

    Man, this is awesome. I LOVED when Goblin Recruiter got banned, because it's hilarious that out of all of the cards of Magic, they banned a creature, and on top of all of the myriad of creatures that have been in Magic, it's a GOBLIN that gets banned?! Hysterical. So the fact that I'm this ridiculous goblin is the BEST. You guys can keep your Ancestral Recalls and your Mox Gems. I'm a banned CREATURE, fools, and I'm not even banned because I have ante or conspiracy or some scrub nonsense like that, it's cuz I'm straight up broken!

    Quake in your boots out of fear, n00bs!


    Why did you decide to claim this, instead of being just like "well, if someone cares about that, they'll probably figure it out/ask the mod"?
