    :blobpopcorn_two: What kind of reads and questioning can you make in only 1 hour? A day phase should be 24 hours at the very least!

    Mm well, the goal is to let new players try out forum mafia, so playing over VC might stray away from that. :blobsweat_2: I was hoping they'd learn the basics on making readlists, questioning, defending, claiming/counter-claiming, and a healthy interest in the game! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

    Congrats for getting the job btw~

    Cause they interfere with each other too much. It's like 0.5-0.6 = -0.1

    Me? ME? Playing yall? In FORUM MAFIA?

    How outrageous. My attention span isn't that long(anymore). Whoever said something something about relativity thinking or something was definitely onto something. im looking for medicine

    redact the overshare

    I can barely play people in short mafia, by which I mean Coup because I like that flavor and powerroles for everyone better, and everyone gets to play and its alll liars dice. (I win by telling the truth as much as possible and then i get em). Its harder to play mafia proper haha.

    People have a really funny way of reacting to me telling the truth sometimes. And i usually do. I exploit it occasionally.

    Im taking this here since its heavy meta talk

    For my past few games I've been trying to wean off meta and use tone-reading & readlist/solving-analysis instead, but still:

    In Defense of Meta
    Meta, aka a player's history of past games, is a helpful way to work out someone's townrange or wolfrange (the range of their capability in that alignment).

    Let's say player Watermelon was a very chaotic wolf in a previous game — self-voting, rolling dice to choose who to believe, and lots of emotional blackmailing (appeal to emotion) to get sus off their back. If in the current game someone says: "Watermelon can't be a wolf because they self-voted during blahblah, and wolves don't do that", meta can be used to tell them: "But Watermelon has already self-voted as a wolf before so it's in their wolfrange. You'll have to give other reasons because that isn't proof they're town".

    Isn't meta also used to deduce a new player's ability? It's very unlikely for a newbie player who was struggling in their first game to suddenly become a wallposting detective in their very next game (not even a week after the last) unless they went through a shounen anime training montage.

    Meta can't be the only reason for town/wolf-reading a person of course ("Watermelon did this as wolf before and they're doing it again, thus they're a wolf!"); it should be one among many tools used for solving.

    Your sacrifice for the greater good (of forum mafia) is noted.

    Gotcha. I'll add you and @Lurking to the waitlist, and let's see if we can set-up a game in 1-2 weeks. Good luck with your exams! :blobpats:

    it's a weird temptation to know that I potentially have the ability to mold new players into the form I want by writing this guide:blobowoevil_horns:
