As far as balance, I did take some chances with the balance in this game which is why I wanted Safari to take a second look at it. Overall I think it did turn out pretty well. The one role I would say that had the least chance to win was Betiko's to be fair but other than him I think the odds were reasonably stacked. Unfortunately for both mafia and cartel, I think their luck in this game was never good. Mafia lost two early including the watcher which can be an incredibly useful mafia role when used correctly and cartel's one extra kill ended up wiping out their own boss. So roles that could have been extremely useful for them ended up nullified.

It could easily have turned that way. The fact that the factions were blind to who was who evened it for us. I have to say mafia had a hard win condition to earn a medal while Town had several ways to win.
BUT to have 6 mafia and an survivor faction that could kill AND a bomb..LOL....It could have been way worse.
I have to agree with Rodion that after all the fighting tooth and nail and to have it end on politics did make it anti climatic.
I feel mafia and cartel had a good chance. It worked out badly for them in a couple ways (I do kind of wish I had a few better fake claims, maybe had Marie as a fake and the DEA Captain as a role, but I feel like they were all at least better than Vanko (no offense Caffeine)) I thought about giving them alternate ways to win but that would have made the game even more complicated and as I said day 1 difficult to balance with the number of people in the game. It was an interesting situation. I saw the potential for that and originally I was going to make it so that Heisenberg would have won in case of a draw but that didn't seem fair to DEA nor did I like the idea of them tying (if there were an even number of DEA and Heisenberg left and no one else, I would have declared a draw but that was the only situation). In the end, I decided to let it play out as the chances of an even numbered DEA v Heisenberg showdown with no scum left seemed improbable enough to get away with it. In the end, that was part of the reason why I decided to give mob and TFO the option of calling it a game so that we didn't have to go through the arbitrary process of eliminating Mob the next day. This is one of those games where I feel like Mob and TFO played as good as anyone I saw but ended on the wrong side of the line.

I WANTED Jesse and Walter to win because I was Skinny Pete. That was my endgame goal. You think you know what I think about you, which can be way off at times.
I mean c'mon I side with Gomes and Marie over you two??
You thought you lost when you really had not...and there in lies your reason for losing.
Interesting. I had wondered if you were going to go with the canonical thought process of siding with Heisenberg though I was pretty sure you had sided with DEA when you decided to block TFO.
