    Tough one to judge here. Everyone made a few mistakes here and there and the better performers kinda got a bit lucky.

    1. Escath - Decent supporting role given his character should have been completely useless. Starts off as 1st for town mainly because the ability bar started off so low. Failed EO
    2. Shri - Town was reliant on his guidance for a while, definitely a positive performance for a rookie - especially one so capable of trolling if given the opportunity. Was very amusing to see him get killed by the sabotaged sniper rifle. Failed EO
    3. Tart - Kept his head down, there were suspicions from some that he might be Shepard but managed to be elusive and evasive enough to keep Mafia away from killing him until the late game. Really unlucky with his recruitments - would have been a very different game if he'd recruited Garrus
    4. Himannv - Cured the genophage and used the locations well, kept moving and working enough to be in the right place at the right time to release the cure, then picked the right targets to protect. Good game. Met EO
    5. KATA - Key player, made some good calls and a couple of bad ones. If Harps hadn't been given that medikit then it would have been a markedly different endgame. Town being too passive in letting shunts buy shit shocker. Met EO
    6. Arheiner - In the end, definitely had a positive contribution - quiet early on when his powers were stronger but less likely to succeed. Met EO
    7. Mousey - Solid, but unspectacular Failed EO
    8. Howe - A real mixed bag. Made a few mistakes early on, protected Verigoat. One night he wanted to kill himann before changing his mind to kill hurricane before on the stroke of the end of the day chose instead to protect KATA. Probably should have seen through or at least questioned the data on Rikkomas - it didn't make much sense with Rikko's role claim. Failed EO
    9. Brettman - Gains some marks for replacing the inactive. Protected Vimes nicely until Vimes moved. Tried to protect Harps which I *think* was Brettman trying to roleblock Harps which was definitely a good call if that's why he was doing it. Met EO
    10. Athlai - Didn't really do anything wrong, but perhaps unexpectedly naive Failed EO
    11. Hurricane - Expected some deliberate gaps to be filled in for him - probably wasn't focused on the game perhaps. Saved Town from the Bomb, which was good. Kind of met EO. Protected town from a bomb, but not the really dangerous one
    12. Vimes - Started off the game well, but disappeared when he really could have become useful. Would have liked to see him take a pot shot or two and/or contribute more to town as Town could have done with his logic. Kinda met EO
    13. Uppercut - Mainly due to protecting the wrong people (Cabinet, Verigoat) - not alive long enough to contribute elsewhere. Failed EO
    14. McGrath - Didn't really do anything until it was too late. Was a really decent claim that protection would reveal information, but unfortunate that this put Cerberus off protecting him. Failed EO
    15. AVA - You dirty slut Failed EO

    Unranked: Nightprowler, Hedger, Furball, Baxter, Stupersteve

    16. Number 11. Didn't even attempt EO

    Bad calls being shooting Furball and not investigating Veri the moment he claimed Athlai was mafia?
  3. Mousey AJ Son

    Happy to be 'solid'. I felt lost a lot of the game and even thought I was third party for the first couple of days :laugh:
  4. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    The main one being Furball really. Hadn't given him a chance to explain even if he wasn't particularly inclined to do so. The other one was that your revised EO about cleaning up Omega really met that you needed to take out Aria T'Loak who was already outed as Cabinet. Probably a bit reliant on theme knowledge, but a look at wiki pages for both characters should have made this relatively obvious without needing clear explanation.
  5. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Ha. Time to drop you down the list, methinks. Maybe I should have said "you didn't really do much wrong"
  6. KickATinAlong IA Ryabovol

    Definitely agree with this, if Farhat had made more of his claim of not being able to find Blunder things might have turned out very differently.
  7. Farhat AM Farhat

    I couldn't really question him considering he had given town Verigoat & Cevno.
  8. KickATinAlong IA Ryabovol

    I genuinely missed Cabinet being outed as Aria - for whatever I reason I thought that was Athlai, and never remembered to check once Athlai died.

    The reason i took out Furball was because he was deliberately being a dick and had a decent chance to explain but didn't do so. That and I really wanted the mercenaries, but as tart was already semi on my case I couldn't bid for them at that stage as there was still plenty of time for people to change their minds and lynch me.
  9. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Of course you could. One of the third party was already exposed. It probably didn't help that Bedsey kind of implied that Cerberus weren't much of a threat when they clearly were.
  10. KickATinAlong IA Ryabovol

    Yeah I think we let this go too easily re: Cerberus. Didn't really to bother to read up too much on them after Bedsey had said that, and by the time I did, it was far too late.
  11. Escath LE Schaw

    Verigoat :laugh:

    Got to be one of the best white flag posts ever.
  12. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    Meh if you say so - you are the game master so you should know.

    From what little I know - SuperSteve died because I didn't save him in time from the first bomb. The other bomb I did help with was going to take out the holder of it and potentially as far as I knew would also take out the planet the holder was on. So yeah SuperSteve vs Some random person who would have gotten the bomb otherwise plus the potential of a planet full of people.
  13. stupersteve03 SJ Cambridge

    I was pretty handy to have tbh, and was being reasonably active.
  14. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Aria had already lied about the abilities of some of the items sold - plus with the first bomb you had no way of knowing that Steve would be the only casualty, but it should have been clear that Mafia wouldn't be amongst the casualties for the first bomb given they planted it. But as you say, meh, it didn't make much difference in the grand scheme of things.
  15. Himannv LV Himann

    How did that aspect of your role work? Taking the bomb that was being passed around was straightforward enough, but how would you have stopped the other one?
  16. Hurricane JD Hurricane

    All I knew is that I could sacrifice myself to save a planet. So presumably I could have made a post saying I would "smother the bomb" or "I will take care of the bomb myself"

    Who knows - something along those lines. I was to be a martyr.

    Definitely surprised by Escath being top for town. I can't speak for what happened outside of the thread and i understand that he had no power role but he was a major factor in town misfiring in the middle of the game. He actively pushed the near mislynch of Arheiner and the mislynch of N11. He was the major driving force behind Speirs being allowed to buy his own identity and he argued against a random lynch of Farhat, which may have rebounded onto Goat. (who's lynching effectively elevated me into cleared townie)

    I had the chance to send morgie to save him when I realised mafia were trying to kill him but decided that taking him off Harps for someone who was actively hurting us (and therefore town at this point because I was thinking as a townie in terms of my thread play) in the thread was too much of a risk.

    Also I feel its unfair to criticise town letting me buy the medikit. I needed to give that to Harps and I had so much money there was no way i wasn't going to win it, and from their pov i was pretty clear at that point.

    Apart from that i think those rankings are pretty good

    so pissed at being offed early

    As you can tell by my posts in the QT, I really liked it and was glued to the thread. I understand you had to take liberties with the source material to make the game work which is why I didn't mind Garrus having to die to become Archangel. I just think Shepard should've been able to play a much bigger role in the game though it sounds like that was down to bad luck. I do think Harbinger was a bit OP which means Shepard should've been somewhat OP as well, maybe even start with Garrus in his team.

    Also, did I miss it or was there no Wrex in the game?
  20. Tartmaster AJ James

    Yeah Shepars would have been much better if I'd recruited effectively.
    Had we got KATA instead of him getting killed, my recruiting would have been heeeeaps better, and we probably would have won.
