Where did the 'pee in a cup' come from on Day One?
You're a motorcycle cop, they don't ask people to pee in cups!
Your voting behaviour on Day Two was very scummy. Just like two members of the Mafia, you vote for zakura, only to unvote him when he's getting himself lynched by not following the role playing rule. On Day Four, Stormblessed finally presents an analysis of the voting behaviour of the previous days. Surprisingly, he doesn't vote for you because of your scummy Day Two voting behaviour, but for voting for a Townie on Days One and Two, which was hardly conclusive, and for being unhelpful. You probably should have stayed calm and explained where his reasoning was off instead of going berserk and calling him scum.
We were really glad you signed up for our game, so we had a nice mix of new and relatively experienced players. Even though you were active enough on most days, we really did expect a bit more contribution and analysis from you, given the number of games you've played.
You only lasted two days before you were killed by the Vigilante. Looking at your posts on those two days I can imagine why the Vigilante targeted you. There wasn't a lot of substance to your votes. On Day One, you voted for TrumpetKing67, unvoted him after "thinking some things through", and voted for zakura, a fellow Mafia member. This was a bold move and one that could have benefited you as the game progressed. On Day Two, you start a vote against TrumpetKing67 again. A scummy vote, as you call him out on what seems an honest mistake.
You signed up because you felt you could brush up on your mafia skills. Despite voting for one of your own, your behaviour on Days One and Two apparently gave you away as scummy and perhaps you should add some more thoughts when you're placing a vote.
You were the Night One night action magnet. You were investigated, roleblocked, and killed by the Vigilante, all on Night One!
And on top of that, you died protecting your killer.
We were really sad to see you go so early in the game as you really took on your role and took role playing seriously. You even edited the quotes to show the characters' names (in addition to the players' usernames). But more importantly, you were one of a few players actually playing
the game on Day One. You analysed posts and called out players for suspicious behaviour. Your lists of suspects included three members of the Mafia and you even voted for TheBoyWonder (and unvoted him again).
You enthusiastically signed up for our game and we were really sad when we got the PM with your name in it from the Vigilante. As he was the last to send in his Night Action, we kept hoping the Town Roleblocker would block the Vigilante. You have to be careful that you don't lose focus by accusing almost everyone and, when you have an important Night Action, it's probably not such a good idea to attract so much attention in the Day threads. On the other hand, it did cause the Cop to investigate you. Imagine what a powerful Town block you could have formed if you had lived past Night One. We were impressed by your performance on Day One and we're happy to give you a Pass
. We look forward to playing with you in Advanced Games.
We liked you posting pictures of cake and coffee on Day One so much that your cake was featured a couple of times in the pictures on later days. You were repeatedly called out for flying under the radar though. Attracting attention to yourself this way when you're the Cop probably isn't a good idea, but neither is being so quiet that you appear suspicious; it's all about balance. When you became one of the lynch candidates on Day Four, you didn't defend yourself really well. Your vote for zakura, a member of the Mafia, helped the other Townies clear you though. On Day Five, you finally shared your results with the players you investigated, but you, nor any other Townie, seemed to consider that there could be a Godfather in the game. Your revelation did not only lead to your own death, but also gave DarthPotato a way to plan his victory.
We don't know what you did exactly behind the scenes, but you should definitely contribute more to the Day threads to avoid suspicion, especially if you're the Cop. Nevertheless, you chose your investigation targets wisely and you Pass

Gary, together with Little Gary, was one of our favourite characters and you played him really well. You were active and analysed other peoples' posts and votes. Unfortunately, the Mafia also picked up on this and chose you as their kill on Night One.
We were glad you selected our game to get back into mafia and we were sad to see you, and Gary, die so early.
We hope you'll be playing Advanced Games again soon. On Day One, you certainly showed you still got it.
Henrietta (Masked Builder)
Despite playing in several Advanced Games already, you signed up for our game because you felt you could use a refresher. Unfortunately, your lack of engagement with the game seemed to be history repeating itself. You didn't add any original thoughts and simply hopped on the bandwagon on Days One and Two. You tend to do this in Advanced Games as well and perhaps you should reconsider if Mafia really is a game for you, as you seem to have difficulty contributing. We do not intend to be harsh here, and we don't want you to be offended by this, but we feel it is fair to raise this issue.
Disappointingly, you dropped out of the game on Day Three. Not only did you prevent another player from playing our game this way, you also disadvantaged the Town as they lost their Roleblocker in you.

You were personally responsible for the Day One lynch.
Whereas we were wondering what the hell you were doing voting (well, the vote didn't even count as it wasn't properly formatted) for Endgame for no reason whatsoever, his jumpy reaction made him look scummy and eventually got him lynched. You were right with your analysis and vote for TheBoyWonder towards the end of the Day though. Your behaviour was a little erratic sometimes, but you played actively and were clearly analysing behaviour, and eventually got killed by the Mafia.
We were happy see one of the few Fellows who isn't playing mafia yet sign up for our game and we hope you enjoyed it enough to continue your mafia career on EB. Pass

You were certainly discussed a lot during the game and you seemed scummy to a lot of players. These suspicions were probably the reason the Mafia didn't kill you and made you the last remaining Townie.
You weren't always suspected for the right reasons though. However, make sure you don't have to blame auto-correct. Lesson: Don't post in mafia games from your phone or you run the risk of getting lunched
Your analysis on Day Five - clearing Ferrik because he helped lynch zakura on Day Two and pointing out that DartPotato and Superficial Username withdrew their votes as konze was getting himself lynched - was absolutely spot on, but unfortunately you didn't act on it.
You took the game seriously and you posted a lot on most days. Also, you were the one who finally analysed the crucial information in the Day Two. Too bad you didn't follow up on it on Day Six. Still, you have definitely earned your Pass
. Good luck playing in the Advanced Games!
, Vanilla Townie
You were one of the two players not confirmed by the Cop. You probably should have realised on Day Five that you'd be voted out on Day Six and that should have gotten you thinking about what was going on. You only defended yourself though, rather than offering alternative possibilities, and left it up to the other players to figure out who the remaining Mafioso was. Unfortunately, they were convinced it was you. Had you looked at the voting patterns and pointed out where the others were wrong, or followed up on TrumpetKing67's analysis, you may have been able to turn the game around, however that would have been tough against people determined to vote you out.
We hoped to see a little more input and analysis from you during the Days, but we also hope you enjoyed your first mafia game. You Pass

Someone has to be the first to get lynched and, unfortunately, it was you. You responded to an unfounded accusation by TazManiac by voting for him. This jumpy reaction was considered scummy by the rest of the players and, no matter how hard you tried to change their mind, you got lynched for it. The lesson to be learnt here is that you have to stay calm when you get accused and certainly don't assume the other player knows
you're Town. It's very hard to defend yourself on Day One though, because you have no posts or voting behaviour to refer back to, and we don't think you could have avoided the lynch.
We were sad to see Jean (and you
) go so quickly, but based on the way you played on Day One you get a Pass

You weren't very active for a large part of the game and that made you suspicious to a lot of players. However, it also caused to Cop to investigate and clear you. On Day Four you led the lynch against badboytje88. Even though his vote on Day Two was scummy, you accuse him for voting for a Townie twice, which wasn't very conclusive evidence. Nevertheless, the remaining members of the Mafia were afraid you would uncover them and decided to kill you on Night Four, and you should take that as a compliment.
Even though you could have been more active on the earlier Days, we're convinced you got the hang of the game and are happy to give you a Pass
was our reaction when you sent in your action for Night One. How could you kill one of the most pro-town players on Day One? Also, sending out a request for protection to a group of random players on Night One probably isn't a good idea as there is good chance you're contacting a member of the Mafia and they'll just assume you have a Night Action and kill you. That's exactly what the scum did on Night Two. For some reason they even had you pegged as the Vigilante. Nevertheless, you also got your revenge on Night Two and killed a member of the Mafia.
You contributed to the Day threads and except for two rather big mistakes, which hopefully you learned from, we think you played well and chose your second target wisely.
, Vanilla Townie
After PsyKater and Adam got killed on Night One, we figured you'd be next, as you were one of the more analytical players on Days One and Two. However, when we had to restart Day Three, you forgot post all day, which earned you penalty votes on Day Four. On Day Four you waited until the final minutes of the Day to cast the final vote for badboytje88. You're convinced he's scum, but your reasoning is mainly based on the tone of his reaction to Stormblessed's accusations. We were hoping you'd be the one to look back at the voting records and figure it out on Day Six, but instead you relied fully on the Cop's investigation results and, like the other remaining Townies, seemed to refute any other options.
We were happy to have you in our game and, except for Day Three, you were very active and did a good job at both role playing and analysing behaviour.
Phyllis (Superficial Username)
We were somewhat surprised to see you successfully fly under the radar for so long. After your failure to hammer the vote and get TrumpetKing67 lynched on Day Two (and making the same mistake in the vote against badboytje88 on Day Four
), we were expecting you to attract some more attention, either in the Day threads or from the Cop. You were one of two players not investigated by Day Five and DarthPotato decided to bus you. The alternative would be to try and get Ferrik lynched on Day Five. It was a risky move, but you accepted your fate, and in the end it worked out well for your team.
We would have liked to see a bit more participation from you, but then again, you were a member of the Mafia and avoided suspicion for long enough, which can be seen as an accomplishment. You had no problems sacrificing yourself for the team, which is important when playing mafia.
Sole survivor in your first game!
Obviously you were helped a lot by the fact that you got the Godfather role, but, aside from the scummy Day Two vote/unvote for zakura, you didn't make any major mistakes. You were active enough in the Day threads to avoid any serious suspicion and, with hindsight, you made the right choice by busing Superficial Username on Day Five. You weren't really forced to strategise, but we nevertheless would have liked to see the scum team strategise a bit more. Whenever decisions had to be made, you were the one making them. One thing that stood out to us was that, when selecting your target, you never seemed to consider the possibility that they'd be protected. Killing konze on Night Five was necessary, because he'd investigate Ferrik that Night and have everyone confirmed as a Townie, and the Town would have probably have realised that there was a Godfather hiding among them. Given that you didn't know the Doctor was dead since Night One, killing konze was a riskier move than you perhaps realised. If he wasn't dead, he surely would have protected konze, because he was basically outed as the Cop on Day Five, and you would have had a much harder time proving yourself as a Townie on Day Six.
You played really well and you had a clear strategy once the Cop came forward to you. Congratulations on your well-earned victory and your Pass
You attracted a lot of attention in the Day threads by not contributing a lot and making unsubstantiated votes. We never expected someone to get lynched for violation of the role playing rule and we merely included it to illustrate the importance of reading the rules. More importantly, you could have gotten your team members in a lot of trouble as they had to pull their votes from you when you were essentially getting yourself lynched. As the most experienced member of the Mafia we expected you to take the lead, but instead you largely decided who to roleblock on your own and didn't coordinate with your team a lot.
You probably don't need us to tell you what went wrong and what you could improve, but we hope you enjoyed the game nonetheless.
