I think, with a vig that couldn't miskill and all those tiebreakers and resurrects and stuff, and nowhere for Evil's lone uninformed max to hide, Good was nearly guaranteed a win in this one.

I do think it was good sided - especially since a mislynch followed by a Hopper kill tonight would have brought me back.

Your brutal being nerfed to just Eleven is weaker than it seemed too.
i thought I'd die tonight for the LHLV race between evil abs if that was the case
Luckily I think my tiebreak would've fallen down to Cordelia


So many iPhone autocorrect fails....

Yay, good job team.

Glad I could help!

(I only correctly read Rhand as evil. Had Dake/code on d1 and then Ryagic/$2M on d2, but I did find good Nets early!)

What‽ Good royal thinks good ryagic is evil? How?
good abs and good nets always thinks the other is evil. As illustrated again here lol

Was wondering how I became relevant. Can't say that I was a fan of being a dead Town Crier/Village Idiot on D1 with a really really limited messaging function.
I thought it was unique! I liked it, but maybe would like to see less limitations and for a bigger sized game.

I had to not kill a AV/HSR N1 and that was never going to happen bc I ack at NKs.

I think it ended up pretty close but stupid villager comraderee

I should have claimed sooner but I really did not have the time to figure it out.

Did you guys really think it was me on D1 evez?

I also had you as good on D1. I think if you kill hopper!codeia instead of Mimi you have a pretty good path to victory. The half claim hurt you a lot, though I realize you do that as good

Interesting set.

It feels very puzzle-y. I'm little disappointed we got through it so easily, actually.

Good game, y'all.

In watching this from the outside, I would have liked to see it bigger with more players.
I felt it ended before the mechanics could really shine.

With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

It'd take a lot of interest and energy for me to run a bigger thematic game again. I'm pretty over hearing "fun but impossible for one side to win". It even happened here, where it was must lynch basically immediately yet somehow impossible for evil to win.

i can imagine it's super annoying. for the most part, i notice a pretty obvious bias when people are evaluating balance.

I think it felt very balanced. Hence the must lynch.

I just didn't notice the mechanics really popping.
Everything was very subtle.

I was expecting more people to be talking about their chats and more communication with the upside down.

I would have love to seen Wil get rescued etc.
That would have rocked.

evil was definitely able to win this game... ryagic gets lynched and that's it. and i think good had decent reads. which is compounded when the set is small.

i definitely agree these particular mechanics would have been richer in a larger game.

I agree. I think it was crazy swingy but as "balanced" as swingy games can be. I was pretty happy with how things turned out because there were several "best case" things for both sides, but goods' reads ultimately correctly triumphed.

It's just pretty discouraging to hear it every time people run non-vanilla games, regardless of whether I'm modding, spectating, or playing.

there's a line between just talking about game theory and bashing a game.

i don't know where the line is. but i know when i feel like it's getting crossed.

Actually, Ryagic might have been the one mislynch that would have sealed the game for good. NK Nets and Codeia gets tiebreaker. NK Codeia, I'm brought back.

If Nets was NKed, the game's over due to parity. Irina thought that codeia was tough and intentionally didn't kill her.

Parity wasn't a thing though. Evil had to have everybody in the upside down. Right?

I guess I just don't get what it adds to the conversation unless it's talking about specific mechanisms. Like, I thought that Royal's feedback about being Will was good because that's something that people might consider including in some form in the future, and knowing what he didn't like about it was good.

But "gg good, evil had no shot" is basically never helpful and is the kind of feedback that has repeatedly driven moderators away.

Even a more nuanced discussion about the way that balance plays out in games feels like something that should a) wait a day or two and b) possibly be discussed in the game design thread or with enough warning that people that don't want to see it can unsubscribe. No one is going to run the same hidden role thematic game a second time with very very few exceptions that are usually labeled that way before the game.

Unless balance feedback is handled properly, it usually just makes players on the winning team and/or the moderator feel bad. If something is genuinely imbalanced, I guarantee you that the moderator(s) can at least tell that something was off during the game.

So killing Nets gives tiebreaker ability to either Codeia or Irina - whomever gets that ability wins the lynch and the game.
