A little late on my side too. Yeah, so, um, happy new year.
Happy New Year! A bit late but never mind. ^__^
Hey there Sock. Not too much going on here. I'm still drifting around aimlessly on holiday. Net access is pretty limited. Kinda looking forward to getting back home. A little Christmassed out. How's things on your side?
How's it going?
No worries - I'll post the 3 lowest post counters in the thread at the end of each day - regardless of whether the sniper's conditions are met. It's easy enough to check - The Ban the person thread, for eg, had R3d - 32 posts, you 30, Vince 20, GmG 16, me 15 and so on.
The purpose behind the no suicide was to stop all the Townies from killing themselves in one go. If you're a Townie and you choose to let yourself get lynched, then that will in no way improve your odds of winning the game. The mafia will win before you achieve anything. It balances.
The post count is only for in game. It doesn't matter what your official ST post count is, only the count for this mafia game itself. It's a way to stop people from lurking or going inactive.
whgut ? so what if it reaces day 10? the sniper will have to count everyone's post in order to see who he can target? O__O
Yes, you can vote to lynch yourself. Not necessarily stupid, you could do it to save the medic or the investigator, if you know they're going to be lynched instead. It's different from suicide. The suicide rule was instituted because of a weird game I played where the non-roled civvied all committed suicide. This made it easier to spot the mafia. I don't think it's happen here, but best not to chance it.
If so, then how do you make the difference between those who DO commit suicide and those who have a purpose for their suicide? I mean, without giving hints to the other players in the thread?
Let's take your example. If I vote myself in order to save someone else and if you don't label that as a suicide then those who voted for me will conclude the other voted person had a role.
What, really? Okay, thanks.
you can trust me <3
My trust in people has forever been shattered. *Sniff*
So, a new game? Yeah, sure. I'm in.
sup. In the mood for another TWG?
....mwhahaha, bisko brought a friend.
