So how would everyone feel if cop cover became a thing in DDO mafia? Basically, in the beginning of each DP all players say something like "If I am cop [random player] is [random affiliation]". The real cop, of course, gives their actual results. This lets town get all the cop's info if the cop dies in the night, and the cop never actually has to say they're cop.

On most sites, there is a negative impact due to the fact that it makes it easy for scum to narrow down cop. On DDO however, we're super obsessed with flavors (and roles in general), so POE is a much less viable option for mafia. There are only town benefits, and I'd like to see it become SOP on DDO. What do you guys think?

How would letting scum narrow down the cop be a bad thing on a site without the common use of flavours? The only way for scum to know the real cop is if he actually gets an accurate result, and, considering dice rolls that call players town will more often than not be accurate just because of the number of townies, the only real indication that a player is the cop is if they get a guilty. If the cop does get a guilty then he would just claim it anyway and lynch the scum.
I would prefer not to.

While it would probably give town 1, maybe 2, confirmed scum lynches, mafia would still want to stop cop from giving town more results.
