Everyone says to lynch day 1 cause mathematically its good to do, then when there's a 50/50 on Atyeo and Asa being hammerer they want to go for someone else? Seems counter productive to go for me
Unvote Im sorry i've been inactive school has started back up From what i'm seeing so far though here are my thoughts:
Insie is basically a confirmed scum dont really need to go in depth
Extra was killed night 1 so im assuming the scum is potent at being scum with being able to realise the biggest threats to them instantly (whatever role burnt them)
Maribro felt like a really random death and i think the scum who shot them arent very experienced and dont want to interfere with some large talkers around now, unless the talkative people are scum themselves.
Yeah tbh i am forgetting occasionally about this, i only remember after a tourney when i got to do character data But i dont think thats a valid excuse since its in the back of my mind
Alright so I haven't been talking often and i'm sorry about that, had a lot of life shit happening and still not used to having to check in to a mafia game every day, usually i just play games over a few hours max but as for my defence. I honestly have no defence as to who else could be scum or why im not scum. Its day 1 and we have absolutely nothing to go off so the only thing people can go off is on whos being active or not. If people want to accuse me of scum for being inactive when Duon hasn't posted for a longer time than me, then the mafia must notice im being targeted and being circled on for a day 1 lynch. Im sus Duon is scum since there's been very little to no attention on him despite being MORE inactive than me.
I haven't done too much research myself into the actual math of it, just from a few games of online mafia i've done myself whether ToS or Discord. I usually prefer no lynching on day 1 from these but I could be wrong on a technical term
Bijou said: The TL;DR is that last game MrL had the firefighter role and when the lynch train was on him he didn't bother to claim or anything and just got himself lynched.
You could argue that there was no proof of him having the role but any townsperson with some sort of role is probably better off claiming before getting themselves lynched even if the role is useless.
For those of you who are new, the firefighter role allows you to use water on a player during the night phase which protects that player from being killed by an arsonist (third party killer role similar to serial killer). In a game without an arsonist the firefighter role is almost completely useless. It commonly gets used as a meme in Aussmash mafia games since many of our games involve power roles and for game balance the mods tend to make some useless roles for some town players.
Sorry gamers i've been out past few days yes i'm alive I've not played forum mafia so i'm not fully acquainted with every role people may have but like some people said I think there's very little reason to vote day 1. We have absolutely no data to take from to accuse with and with all this firefighter stuff i'm assuming there are more unique roles im not aware of i'm more in favour of letting the night just go and getting leads before we accidentally kill something useful.
