    Due to my immense study of this topic, my thoughts may prove too profound to follow... but do not be afraid to ask for clarification.
    On a serious note, we've had a lot of these threads. I have lost count, but this is probably at least the fifth. I don't mind reading a debate, but can't we at least discuss something new?

    DON'T MIND ME...
    I'M JUST BABBLING ABOUT!

    So, Obama wants more tech regulations in order to combat misinformation on social media.
    Cool. But who'd do the regulating though? The government?
    Plenty of topics are politics based, while in the US - every political opinion is grouped in one of two groups thanks to their two party system (not very democratic system if you ask me btw). Which group would get the honor to choose what is right and what is misinformation?
    If we're talking about only objective information - well, government officials themselves have spread misinformation about let's say Covid.

    Ok let's say no political opinions would ever get moderated (lol) and objective stuff by experts only. What about every other country in the world that is not the US? What if let's say 50 of them wanted each different stuff censored to their citizens?

    I feel like government tech regulations for censoring social media is just not realistic. Though there's only a few countries large enough for the tech companies to comply to their demands, and perhaps for some of them it can work well. I just don't see USA being one of them. \_(ツ)_/

    Even if it was a realistic scenario, I hardly doubt Frinckles deliberately made Beguiler die from targeting Soldato just for that niche scenario.


    Edit: is Enchantress before Beguiler in OoO? Wouldn't have expected that.

    But soldato role was hidden due to Incense Master and no alert of dying from explosion.

    N1 - soldato planted a bomb on the constable.
    N2 - soldato detonated the bomb.

    Who exploded N2: constable, soldato, armorsmith (targetting constable), beguiler (targetting soldato).

    I guess it's still a bug due to beguiler exploding..
    One thing soldato role card doesn't mention though: he sees LW's of everyone who exploded.

    It feels bad having to explode yourself (+watching replay to make sure) before learning that detonating is suicide.
    I'd like to suggest adding some indication that soldato detonating their bomb counts as visiting it.
    Like add it in the role description text or place the detonation button to the target not yourself.

    ►►Re: 24/7 Wolf Chat vs Night-Only Wolf Chat◄◄

    I just want to quote a fairly good criticism about night only chat:
    I have been summoned
    (ccing @mansnicks )
    on most sites that I play on, 24/7 wolfchat rather than night only wolfchat is standard. This is not true everywhere, and plenty of places do it differently.

    On some level this is a balance decision -- if wolves have 24/7 chat, they can talk/coordinate/etc., whereas if they don't have that it is much harder for them to do anything resembling that. This is especially true in games with no N0 planning phase; if wolves don't get to talk until night 1, and until then basically have to improvise a plan separately with no way to coordinate with each other, this obviously makes it harder for them.

    This is also on some level (I suspect the level on which this change is being pushed) a balance decision. Many players find it kind of unenjoyable to roll scum and not be able to talk to or coordinate with their team; many players see 'being in wolfchat' as one of the fun parts about being a wolf. Neither of these is universal but both of these are common.

    I don't think that either '24/7 wolfchat' or 'not that' should be enforced on a site level, in my opinion those are both decisions that can be left up to the individual host. If players don't want to play a game without 24/7 wolfchat, then this will kind of solve itself -- they just won't sign up for games that don't have it.

    Personally I would probably not sign up for a game with nightchat only for wolves and only run games with 24/7 wolfchat.
    I agree that Night Only chat can be a miserable experience for the wolves by comparison to 24/7 chat.

    Edit: let's not forget that we've Night Only chat in most setups just because mechanics were either copied directly from already approved setups or copied because our experiences are so biased in favor of Night Only chat.. since.. you know.. it's like almost every setup page for a decade..

    Apparently even FoL has never had problems with 24/7 chat, and they're heavy mech lovers as they go.
    Edit: in fact, day chat allowed them to be more mech heavy as mech heaviness is otherwise a town buff.
    I guess this means I'm mostly for having most games be 24/7.
    Only setups like krc and Smiths I could see it causing trouble, few setups by comparison.

    ►►Re: 24/7 Wolf Chat vs Night-Only Wolf Chat◄◄

    In a setup like krc I'd prefer night only, and depending on the setup some but few semi-opens also. Both because of the possibility of it enabling game breaking plays.

    In a setup like Mountainous or any low PR regular setup I prefer 24/7 because I find the idea of catching some newly formed wolf agenda live. It's more enjoyable for wolves also and innocent enough for such setups that the fun aspect greatly outweighs any negatives imho.
    I guess for nights only technically there's things like trying to catch someone who eagerly awaited the night chat and then came in strong after the night, or something like that, but it's meh by comparison and probably mostly NAI anyway.

    I don't remember seeing any host changing even simple mechanics like that for their game. It's always been whatever the setup page already said. I don't expect that to change, but if it does and when hosts do put in this change in signups when hosting preexisting setups - then perhaps it's worth considering telling everyone to also hide their online status?

    I've little to no experience with it, but AFAIK most of the time it's the ability for the mafia to kill someone if they guess their role correctly, and the number of guesses they can make are usually not public knowledge.
    Regardless of what an individual game's soup mechanic is though, just know that it's an anti claim mechanic.

    ►►Re: Top 10 thinkers◄◄

    I have 2 thoughts on this:

    1) Jordan Peterson. I'm so against him being on the list. Lots of his advice is just common sense in psychological “You get motivated by action.” Duh. But beyond that there's countless examples of him pulling shit like this. There's some admirable qualities of his or things he's done: like his ability in having open and honest debates or his analysis of Hitler, or him pointing out basics things like the reverse racism of saying things like "all white men are oppressors". But I fail to see him being worthy of being on such a list tbh.

    2) Just like the human mind can't imagine/generate a color it has never seen, so too it can't generate anything else - every thought, reasoning, idea, shape, sound comes from a combination of previous inputs. Which is why I think it can't be understated how highly we should value and appreciate the "fathers" of things. Father's of physics, philosophy, math, science, engineering, etc., - if we could name them, they deserve to be on such a list.
    I don't agree that the complexity of an idea is indicative of how difficult it was to think of. For example, I'd value - people figuring out that the earth is round thousands of years ago from just the shadows of lunar eclipses - as more difficult than todays satellites built. I'd value the pythagorean cup as more complex than a tomorrows skyscraper. For that reason I think there should be a very few names listed from the last few centuries. Newton, Tesla, Einstein - I think it's theories and discoveries like that which should be worthy on the list, when it comes to more modern names.

    ►►Re: Daykill feature for fm◄◄

    I think American Flag was the first setup that had day kills end the days. Feature is nice to have, just I expect most to have forgotten about it before the next time arises that it'll be needed - that remembering will be a fun moment.

    Wait, what? Has that always been the case? @Oberon

    Btw, Lag, why is it that the statistics numbers only change every +2 townies? Town can't skip, i feel like +1 townie should change something

When you have mafia killing other mafia as an optimal play in a game, that really doesn't qualify as a mountainous game anymore.

    Also, I used to agree with you months ago, so I looked up all the champs games from the last time champs was a mountainous game, and I saw that despite having a 24.5% EV winrate, town was winning around 36% of the time. While the sample size was relatively small (14 games), it was significant enough of a difference to make me call my priors into question.

    Season 4 of Champs was a 12v3 mountainous, town won 5 of the 14 games. The probability of town winning 5 or more games assuming they should win 24.5% of the time is 10%

    That's not quite enough to be considered statistically significant, but it is enough to at least call into question the assumption as well as discredit claims that say that the data supports EV project projections.

    So when the data didn't support the conclusion (the EV winrate is not what you see in mountainous games in practice) and when intuition didn't support the conclusion (A 42 v 3 game sounds absurd), I had no choice but to reject the conclusion and modify my beliefs
    Yah, that season 4 anomaly was really interesting. I think they did better than other seasons with same Town vs Mafia ratio but with Power Roles, and usually in Champs in qualifiers Mafia are overperforming while Town is overperforming in semis (finals feel even though? ) so that makes the anomaly even more strange.

    I'm curious how it will go this year!

    But anyhow, I looked at all MU mountainous games, not just the Champs, for my conclusion back then.
    Champs so weird. Almost always Mafia are overperforming, with all that different playstyle clash in the qualis, yet the one statistically mafia favored setup it's the opposite

    Edit: ohh yah the statistics results were fun
    Town has won 9 times, Scum have won 24 times.
    Town has 27.27% win rate overall.
    However, 5 of those wins are from Championship Season 4 games.

    2vs19 sounds fun actually tbh
    Mafia can kill 8-9 best players and have to be townier than 9-10 scummiest townies? Like I feel like it's a cool game ngl

    [WIP] ►►Re: S-FM Texorami◄◄

    If I wanted a mountainous 50%, I'd suggest red flag 15er, not 2vs19 regular mountainous btw. But regardless of how even those 2 vs 19 numbers look to you, as far as at least win chances go, I do think it'd average on that 50% with a large enough sample size, my own looking up the statistics of mountainous games doesn't give me a reason to doubt that. There's even that funny story of Thingyman winning 1vs20+
    But as I said before; we differ on how strongly we value each teams influence and the impact of scumhunting vs misleading. For me it all evens out, for you town influence is stronger especially in the long run.

    Like there's nothing more to it. You want to add slight favor to Mafia because you value Town strength higher than Mafia's; I don't.

    As opposed to Wolf sided setup? What's the problem here? In either case, players get to play the game.

    I fee like you're undervaluing the Wolf influence on the game tbh. In a 50%, I reckon the best team wins most of the time more than in any other EV setup.

    I'd never play a 15% tbh, I could see myself playing a 70% if I'd expect the game to be fun otherwise.

    You don't think 50% is ideal? I guess only I value the social deduction and deception effect on the game as low as I do.
    If champs setup decision had a public discussion this year, I'd suggest Red Flag 15er instead of Mountainous.

    last year i checked, a sample size of 30+ mountainous games shows that the town win rate is nearly identical to EV, so it's sort of important imho.

    But like, D6 has 50+%, quite town sided, but many have named it their favorite setup at some point (though now its out of favor seems)
    i'd say 20-80 is playable 30-70 is fine 40-60 is nearly perfect 50 is perfect, though i'd prefer 40 over 60 any day of the weel
