Any games lately where a 3P solo won? Maybe I'll beef up the 3P next game I run.

I think the nature of action economy makes it inherently difficult to balance the efforts of one player against multiple teams.

So often when a mod tries to make a super OP super fun 3P dude (and balance the game around that player), that player ends up dead by Night 2, and the fun surprise for the game is gone too early

at the same time making then more than 1x DP/LP makes the game unfun for everyone else

I have made a new chart for everyone to disagree with.

Emotional does not mean hysterical, and calm does not mean boring. Slytherin does not mean evil, and Hufflepuff does not mean dumb. I did it mostly on feel so I can't really put into words what my thought process was.

I only included people I've interacted with/read enough of so if I missed you maybe I'll update it some day.

I promise I like pretty much all of you so if you don't like your spot don't take it personally!

BRB Ragequitting again.

In all seriousness, I think that a solo 3P win is something that's probably not going to happen no matter what you do as a mod, so just give the role something fun to do while they are playing to make up for it.

I am kind of surprised that I'm generally pegged as calm. I'm not very good at being scum so I often have to resort to emotional pleas or bullying to get anything done. I'm happy though, I've been working on being less of a dickhead.

Yeah when I put your dot down I recalled you talking about why you play mafia, because you like a puzzle to piece through during the day. It made me think you're more calm, chill, surfing through the game and figuring stuff out.

I'm so horribly competitive that I refuse to play games with people I have to look in the eye on a regular basis.

As long as I'm not in a competitive situation, I am Hufflepuff as hell.

If we're playing something even as silly as Go Fish I will get so competitive that you'll hate me for at least a couple hours after. It takes tremendous discipline for me to not just gleefully spank my opponent or cuss a blue streak if I'm losing.

I will also get really obnoxious about game knowledge. The guy who taught me to play ascension went easy the first couple games, I downloaded the app and all the expansions, learned to exploit mechana class and then I beat him seven games in a row and he hasn't played with me since.

lol we have one guy like that at our weekly board game nights, and I routinely try to get him to admit he's still having fun when losing a game. I feel much better about a game if I can lose and still have fun, which is why Coup is still one of my current favorites.

I am now much more okay with getting really into Steven Universe now that I know it was just renewed for a 3rd season. I hate getting into a show right before it's cancelled. Not worth the risk!

I dunno, I enjoyed Carnivale and I'm okay with the fact that there'll never be another season. I'm often disappointed by finales though. With how slow Steven Universe moves though, it'd be a shame if it ended early.

I've been totally engrossed by Major Lazer and I am not that ashamed about it.

This sounds really general since the entire internet has blown up about this but I really, really liked Firefly when I watched the first season for the first time and even though I'm not irrational about it I'm still pretty not okay with the lack of a second season. I've been thinking for years that it would be a no-brainer for Netflix or someone to bring it back but at this point even that would be difficult after 12 years.
