I'm fairly new and still do not know all of the ins and outs of every role and game, which is why I have refrained from being a mod so far, although it is probably in my future.

I will say that I think that getting some new players into games is important and a good thing, but I agree with Andy that a list a ratio could be established as to how many noobs to let in a game. And noob teaching games would be great as well.

I thank those of you who have helped me grow as a mafia player. I hope we can all return the favor and teach noobs as they come in.

yeah it's weird playing with a whole bunch of new players. I feel like a veteran and I haven't even learned how to properly accuse someone yet

Also, who was your favorite mod from era 1 & 2? and why? ( more than one answer is acceptable)

Mr. Squirrel for Era 2. This era I think safari has come out with the most successful games overall. Era 1. I didn't play enough games from back than to be honest but I always heard really good things about Andy's games.

Part of me says I should never mod another game, so then my legend grows and grow.

Kind of like Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game with no TV footage and a few minutes of audio at the end recorded by a random person. Haha.

Shrouds of mystery and legend.

There was no best mod. All the good mods eventually screw up. They all abandon games and they all make unbalanced setups. I believe the players make the game not the mod, but I am probs biased as I am a player not a mod.

yeah I agree it takes a great mod to set up a great game, but it takes players for the game to actually happen

I miss some of the silly chu games with ridiculous roles. I don't remember the last time we had a lyncher; hell, even discussion of possible lynchers doesn't exist anymore.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa? We're having a discussion about eras. WITHOUT ME. Guys you're doing it wrong. WRONG I SAYYYYYYY!

Anyway You know what would be good in a discussion like this. LOGS! LOTS AND LOTS OF LOGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGSSSSSSSSSSSSS! SAdly my limited amount of logs are at my house back at not college so I can't really access them right now. At the very least I can put in my insight that the amount of eras are off. Also they seem a bit small to be eras too me. I can count a couple specific times.

1: Andy-period/ pre-takeoff
2: Intial takeoff/ noob flux (I came at the start of this)
3: The Mafia crew (Basically when mafia started to form a solid crew and the number of newbies were toning down)
4: The Esoog
5: The Fall of the Esoog
6: The Revival I
7: The Revival II
8: Whatever this is now.

Something like that. If I wasn't so lazy I'd be posting more.

Btw what is up with the lack of me being mentioned at the start of the therad. I LIEK BEING MENTIONED! >:U

(Also I find it quite funny how old gaurd I am while still being younger than most of this forum. (Btw I'm 19 now :D that's one more year! :D)
