Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

simple fun FUCK I know who the mafia is (It's christophoros) but I don't have any way of justifying it. I know it's him because he's the only player left in the game that hasn't been online since the start of the last night, and there was no kill submission. I know that ...

Re: Lataro's Simple Fun D5: Deathless

The odds don't stack up for me. I just don't think eculc would have taken the risk that Snark was the chosen VT. Since snark was the only VT to have died at the time he claimed there was only around a 1/3 (possibly 1/4 since he didn't know the setup) chance of the ploy working. Doesn't seem like a w...

Re: Lataro's Simple Fun D5: Deathless

OK, in my eyes this confirms eculc. No NK means a successful doctor, so eculc had it right. So this is LYLO, I think. Is this the point where it's best to do a No Lynch just to up our figures? Also, we know that it's either Carlington of BF is the scum. I still don't like BF's strategy yesterday, si...

Umm, then why vote bart, possibly killing him before the modkill, and wasting a lynch, when we will get the same effect by voting No Lynch?

No, it means the cop's ratio of roleblocks to reports will be substantially off from the norm. Oh yeah, I missed that.

Fewer kills != less depth. Slower != worse. I agree that in LoL it is harder to get kills - it is slightly slower, so you have more of a chance to react, and there are more escape mechanisms. This means that if your opponent is playing sensibly, it is very hard to secure a kill on your own. That's w...
