My only criticism of this game is that I think ps87, IE and Rylan all should have been modkilled. Life happens, but not posting for as long as they did really hurts the game. It's not fair to the rest of the players when votes get dragged out for 12+ hours because people aren't around.

Otherwise enjoyable.

Being one of those people, I do agree with that. Like I said in the dead thread, I am terribly sorry for disappearing. But great job bhaw!

THG, great game, even though I wasn't around.

The village killing IE made zero sense there.

I couldn't understand why you guys killed ps87 when you did. That kill prolonged the game. If you had killed sdd or mwb the game would have been over.

If ps87 had not shown up, I would have killed sdd. I would have voted bhaw hoping mwb would also. Since ps87 showed, he was a wildcard and I had no clue what he would do. I felt I had a better chance of getting sdd to flip than not knowing ps87 was at. I took a chance and bhaw almost got sdd to vote for me.

It was a last ditch effort. I was hoping SDD held out for long enough to convince MWB. My rationale was true though. With 2 left, a tie was a loss for the blue/green team.

I was going to vote for bhaw if I thought it meant the village could win, but the chance of another red being out there kept me hopeful that we could convince MWB to change his vote. If MWB hadn't changed his vote prior to when I came back from walking my dogs I probably would have voted for bhaw.

Well done, bhaw, MWB, Zaro, and SDD.

Like Benny said, the last few phases epitomized what this game can be at its best. It was very fun to watch.

Thanks, thg!

If he had targeted me, he would have died as well though.

How does that work? MWB was a vig? And he had a bullet that would take out his killer?

It's up to the mod. Some mods put in the rule that if the vigilante is targeted AND he/she has an unused bullet, the Alpha baddie dies as well (or even instead). I go back and forth on this rule when I mod. It makes sense (you have a loaded gun and someone tries to kill you ... you kill him), but it really seems to be a real detriment to the reds. The vig isn't that important of a role, and the Alpha is very important. I've had it set up both ways in games I've modded.

sometimes if the vig has a bullet stored and does it use it, when they are attacked at night, the person attacking will get shot from that bullet. its a little added protection and it encourages you not to fire if you arent 100% sure

Yeah, this was how THG had it set up. I think it was balanced out some by if I used the shot, I'd be susceptible to a kill that night and the next (my reload night), without anything happening to the person killing me.
