Unfortunately, I have to cancel my concept game and it is (as some of your predicted) because it can't work. However, the reason it can't work is probably not what you all expected.

I was trying to build a game where individual action would be rewarded, rather than people winning simply because they were on the winning team.

So I came up with a points system (which is the fail part, because it still doesn't reward the best players) and thought I'd shuffle the teams around, throw in roles
occasionally and score people based on a list I'd made prior to beginning the game.

Unfortunately, it didn't work out as I planned. I was just getting ready to launch DP3 and realised that though bluesteel was probably playing best and timbeech was definitely playing the worst, my points system didn't reflect this at all. So, given that and the fact there is already ample mafia going on, I'm going to cancel my game and go back to the drawing board.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooo, sorry people.

If anyone has any ideas for my concept (players rewarded for exceptional performances, players punished for terrible performances) please send me a PM.

I thought that was a good move, though obviously unfortunate for you.

In a real Mafia game, killing a fellow Mafioso is a terrible move; if one doesn't have a responsibility to keep their fellow cronies alive while they are together, what was the point of being in the Mafia? I thought Mafia members would be rewarded for taking down a townie and punished for failing to save one of their own.

That was the initial idea and that is why my concept failed; in some scenarios bussing is a strong move and in that case, it allowed bluesteel to live (though he wasn't in any real danger) at the expense of you.

I did get some good information from those two DPs and I'll be back with a refined concept in a few months I imagine.

In a karma system, I obviously lost mongeese. If the goal was just to survive, which it seemed to me at the time, since mafia kept re-shuffling, then throwing you under the bus made sense. As long as you were lynched, I wasn't and eliminating the mafias meant I wouldn't be as likely to die when I was town.
