Well Done Mantis!! Sorry about your lynch, but going to be an interesting day tomorrow : )


I think playing with some of us has made you a bit too paranoid...then again, can you ever be too paranoid in a mafia game?




now to catch up with gritty spruce.

Thanks : )

What makes you say that though? There were several times where I mentioned about more bussing on other forums than that forum. I don't think I got overly paranoid though... at all.

I didn't expect to progress any further with the game, but I also didn't really think I needed to be mislynched, so that was discouraging.

The games truly are just too much to take on though... too much content. It's nearly impossible

(((hugs)))

Sorry I had to kind of stop following your game, M. I wish there had been less of a schedule overlap, but MU does what they can to squeeze as much in as they may. In trying to put MU in the best light (not really much though) I think that may have been a factor why they didn't rerand my wildcard last year after several players and the mod(s) broke the thing.

I'm in 2 other concurrent games as well that started previous to champs, so yeah, the MU culture makes the commitment crunch almost unbearable. Not a criticism, just a fact of their culture.

If it helps any, I still believe it's mostly a predetermined showcase for who the MU regulars want to highlight and advance, no matter how you may have played. That is, though it sounds a bit harsh (and maybe it is a bit), you were never going to advance no matter how you played. I could almost guarantee who's going to advance from both wildcards before either game even started, purely on MU rep and little else, and it's as MU would have it, since it's not meant to be an actual championship, just an 'enjoyable' show.

It's all good. Maybe I can start spectating yours, I didn't have a chance to touch it before. It would have been nice to end up in the same game.


And yea, it's just a fact of the culture. I spoke about it after another game I played on there (Frostpunk mafia) in spectator's chat. And people seemed to agree that it was a lot.


As for the predetermined show thing - I sort of agree. But I think it's just because of the very nature that people who have played with each other, will better read each other, and then also maybe put more stock into their opinions and what they say. I played with a handful of the same people in the original G10 game. There were 5 of us from that game in this one. And they really are good players. But yes, it makes it harder for those that are brand new.



The other games that you have played on there.. are they just as large?




As for the paranoia thing... maybe I am just not being objective enough. I didn't feel overly paranoid though. And I disliked the talking in circles that was happening.

Large? Yeah. I've played a couple of anniversary games and that largest ever one, and then the champs, which actually tend to be smaller.

But the pace of the MU culture tends to be faster, to the point of almost nonsensical, and they place a high premium on post counts as a game mechanic and philosophy. They can be pretty harsh on other site cultures that don't adapt to their own, which is kind of odd for a site intent to be an amalgam of other sites; apart from the fact that a lot of the other large mafia/werewolf sites trend toward an upward premium on a similar cultural type, with rapid-fire posts, multi-wall quote posts, and conversational flow as opposed to a more paced analytic.

I never made MU a home or 2nd home like Lissa and others. I always have admired what Thingyman intended with the site and all the effort he and others have put into it. That's really why I tend to be so critical - I'd like them to be maybe better than they are. But it's never any good trying to mould others in one's image.

It was a comment you made about wolves pushing other wolves, that you watched out for that ; )


And they do talk too much, its as bad as that other Mafia site.

That sounds alright. I mean as long as they know that's why you're critical, so you don't come off sounding rude or anything

Oh ya :p but I do think that's a good thing! To be paranoid about that. That's how they win anyway.


What site do you mean? MS?

MQ is the ideal, really. That's where they only vote and do little else but post cat gifs.

I can attest that Siamese aren't evil and naughty as long as you do exactly what you are told to do when you are told to do it.
