That's something I think of more in recent terms with games. People seem to sometimes forget that it's only a game.
But prepare for a long paragraph (Well I dunno, sometimes I rant for a whole page worth, other times for a few sentences lol).
I seriously believe there are people that just need to shut up sometimes and let information settle. (I'm guilty of this sometimes) It annoys the hell out of me when people are either presented with a case against them or a case from them toward another person and they've said all they can say, yet they continue saying the same shit over and over and over again until whatever credibility they had is lost. Or they change one word about their story and BOOM, their credibility, case, and trust is out the window.
When you state a defense or bring forth a case, don't keep harassing people to do this or that, if you have nothing new to say a post every 2nd to 3rd post with pretty much the exact same train of thought and NOTHING new, it irritates people beyond belief. Sometimes people just need to learn to shut their mouth and trust that others will process the information to the best of their ability.
It's like when people claim to be town and expect EVERYONE to know they are town without proof, claim, or anything. You need to remember, other people's knowledge is only limited, sure mafia will try and twist your facts, but if they didn't I'd be questioning how good they are at playing Mafia. Don't get your panties in a knot because people hang you either because of false information or you somehow lost their trust or their respect.
Oh how I love listening to people complain after a game about how they were lynched when they were mafia all along.. it's like WTF? They did the best they could and they got caught, doesn't mean they need to start throwing names around.
Which brings me to my final point (I think) for this rant. Gloaters. Sure it's fine to say that you did a good job somehow and give yourself a pat on the back, but to drag it on for the game or through other games constantly is annoying as hell. It's a game, congrats, you won, you don't even get points here like you do in the Risk part of this site. This is a friendly community (Well, 60% of the time when we're not ripping each other apart to prove one another wrong
), and we get along nicely. Just remember, a lot of the games are never PERFECTLY balanced so going past maybe 1-2 posts bitching about how the game was set up, you're not gonna get far doing that. I know / and myself seem to be bastard mods as far as set-up goes. Me with testing new roles I invent out of thin air XD and / for his wacky set ups like Play The Mod, and a few others.
Let me redirect anyone to a quote that's in my sig for when they get pissed off at something here.All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers.
