Is there any 5 vs 5 games?
I really hate and tried of being stabbed all the time, there are so few players with honesty.
I just want to play a game with tactics and conversations, is there any possibility that to enter a 5 vs 5 (or fewer) games?

Isn't the rule stating that CD may occur if player missed to play 2 turns without login? Then why a "LEFT" occured?

Points Display
Why does the number of D-Points displayed next to a player's name equal their available points instead of their total points? Total points would be a better measure of skill.

Is there any statistics about how common is the win by solos. Which nations has the most wins, and who the least wins. And statistics like that.
And also, in general, which variants would you say are the most played, and why?. Any thoughts?.

Meaning of "no in-game messaging"
First-time player question: if a game has a "no in-game messaging" setting, does that mean there's no communication between the players at all? Or is there just a specific kind of messaging the players should/should not use?

*Apologies if this is answered somewhere in the rules or another thread; couldn't find it specifically anywhere.

Just to respond more fully to ND's outright lie that he "didn't push" his bullshit claim against Peterlund during that game:

@ND: Your claim that you'd "proved" Peterlund, the inventor, was lying about being the inventor, was on page 45. After that you went back to this claim multiple times:

Page 46: "##Vote peterlund Until someone can tell me if my point is incorrect somehow. Pretty sure I caught him in a fake claim."

Page 47: "@Chaqa: Tell me how Peter is "town" after I caught him in a fake claim?"

Page 47: "Well I have already proven Peter is fake claiming."

Page 49: "I have also exposed Peterlund's fake claim."

Page 50: "If you read my EON post (peter section) I detail how it is a fake claim using his own statements."

Page 55: "I've already caught Peter in a fake claim and his play is scummy as hell. Why is he getting a pass here?"

Page 61: "His claim has been proven (by me) to be false."

So seven (7) repetitions of your assertion that Peter was a liar, and that you had "proved" this (when in actual fact Peterlund was telling the TRUTH) does not count as "pushing" ???

Yeah, right.

I suggest that it would be reasonable, as a matter of policy, to subject any claim ND makes to twice the scrutiny of anyone else's claims, in any future game, on the basis of this behaviour.

If the last two games are anything to go by, town ND behaves in exactly the same way as scum ND, that's my point.

If you're a competent townie, it's much more difficult to appear like your town self. If you lurk heavily or spew incomprehensible bullshit, your game doesn't involve actually searching for scum, so you can just do exactly what you always do. Then there are people like Vash, who suck regardless of role, and people like me who are perfect.

despite being regularly scum read this game I think DeathLlama played really well. He hadnt been in a forum mafia game since before I have started he was GM for M15. I was cool seeing his lines of questioning.

And in hindsight, his questions to me probably helped to assert town vibes from both of us. I cant imagine a scum player asking so many logical questions and probing the way DL did. That being said, I dont always do the best job of trusting what seems like obvious towny vibes.

I also think that for the most part vash played pretty well, and so did Chaqa. I think they had much rougher Day 1's than in past games. Bo played alot more like his M19 town self, he was a great supporter of reinforcing who the clears were.

All that said, I think virtually every town player did their part to assert their townyness. DemonRHK was spot on with the grenade, I can honestly say I wouldnt have thumbed Ogion. Peterlund was spot on, in surviving an onslaught of misguided town who distrusted him and in the end he gifted an item to someone who he read accurately as town. Vecna accurately wiped out xorx for us, so I cant really criticise him either.

@Maniac, you really didnt do a whole lot this game but you also didnt do enough to be widely scumread and mislynched.

@HR I think you are giving yourself an awful lot of credit. Sure you are good at the game when you want to be. You certainly have changed town meta here however for yourself. you had a very "lead from behind" playstyle. Catching scum simply by letting them pile on you and try to gain steam on a lynch.

Early on you voted for me and left your vote there the duration of the phase despite me being widely townread. I have to ask, did you vote me for personal reasons or did you really chalk up my thoughts that you were town as a indication I was scum who knew too much.

Because personally... I kinda felt like the pressure from Chaqa and HR Day 1, was more just you didnt want to have to read a long game where I talked too much.

"town ND behaves in exactly the same way as scum ND"

I would argue that that is the only way you can ever be successful as scum, which if you are in for the long haul, it is inevitable will happen from time to time.
brainbomb (325 D)
12 Jul 16 UTC
While that is true, it actually should theoretically be easier to be a rookie scum in that style because theres no meta to work with.

I feel like the next time I am scum, I will really have my work cut out for me. I tend to lay everything on the line to prove my townyness.
Zybodia (355 D)
12 Jul 16 UTC
I feel that the meta here does tend to be anti-rookie for that reason. ("We can't read them; let's kill them")

Note:
RHK had played before, but it was after the game I GM'd and I didn't really watch or read those games at all, so my mind always assumed he was at least kind of new. But at one point I was considerably willing to defend him because reading into him I just couldn't call him scum. DDaniel did at least pretty well as scum, as I helped take heat off him D1 because I didn't think he was scum for the longest time.
Jamiet99uk (443 D)
12 Jul 16 UTC
@ ND you were less active this game. As a proportion of your activity, I'd say it comes out fairly similar. Pushing your bullshit against Peterlund and lying about having proved anything was your principal activity in the latter half of this game.
