Default Some Mafia Ramblings

So peeps don't always play Mafia well. So I'll say some things to help inprove them I guess. Topics will be covered at random.

Last Gasps

Put information in them. Dont just say 'x is Mafia looking'. Say why. Otherwise you've achieved nothing and wasted your gasp. Power roles should usually release their list of targets, especially Cops with their fidnings. Non-town roles can do whatever, because gaps are public.

CheeseLord

He always claims Mafia. Ignore this.

The 'Greater Good'

So recently and less recently people try and get themselves lynched because they're Jesters and that's how they win. Expect some of them aren't. These peopple somehow think that getting themselves lynched will help their faction. Question: How, when nearly every win condition is based on number of faction members, does killing youself help your faction? Answer: Pretty much never. Purposeful self lynching hurts your faction. Why? Simple. Anti-town factions need to kill two more others to make up for a single loss. Selflynch therefore increases the workload since lynching gets harder with less people. Also, in gmaes with over two factions, you damage you factions vote control, which is fairly important. Oh, and town selflynch nullifilies some of the work anti-towns have to do.

In the Cult

Keep the Leader alive. Unlike a Godfather, the Cult loses out more if the Leader dies. Distancing is a good idea, but it's for the Leader's benefit, not yours.

1st and 3rd seem to have occurred to you simply becauise of the current game...

To be honest, I really couldn't think straight (still can't), and because I was already under suspicion, I thought it would be best to die as opposed to get replaced, where someone has to dig themselves out of a hole I dug.

The only reason I selflynched myself at Electoral Reform mafia is that I didn't want to play anymore, so blah to this.

The main issue are lurkers. Lurkers will get my vote. Lurkers ruin the game for all those involved.

On topic: i think a persons playstyle is up to them a bit. Random should have asked to be replaced, as should megadog, although his case is different. Self-lynching ruins the game for your faction.

In a way, where the games are going, I could care less about my faction.

Just saying.
