Yes, @Siggy and I have been thinking again.
-We have a problem with filling large games.
-We have a lot of meta reads anymore, which can become very frustrating for players.
-Time is an issue for a number of people.
So we're looking at what we can change, what y'all can change, what's most important in a game to you.
Do you like big closed setups? How important is balance in that case, is 60-40 odds fair enough? Are you willing to recruit new players to help fill these kinds of games?
Do you prefer small open setups? Is that because you don't have time to follow a large game? Or is it you just prefer the atmosphere where there are fewer people to keep track of?
Do you prefer a high volume game or a low volume? And what do you think of as high volume?
Do you like the standard 48/24 phases? Should we run some 12/12s or 36/12s? (I know, time zones are A Thing for us, but suggestions are good.) How about long phase post restricted games, like a five day day and and a two day night, but you can only post like fifty times a phase or so?
What is it that makes a game enjoyable, apart from winning? Setup, players, modding?
Do we need a crackdown on certain behaviors?
Not all of these are things Siggy and I can do much about. I mean, if everyone says they prefer 25 player closed role madness multiball games, but we only have 14-15 people consistently signing up for games, then.... y'all gonna have to start recruiting if you want those games to run. And hype the game in advance. ( https://personalitycafe.com/mafia/174...-trailers.html ) We would hope that you all would notice that kind of disconnect yourselves and toss around some ideas on how to fix it.
But there are things we can do and are open to suggestion.
And as always, if you have some ideas or thoughts you want kept private, you can PM us.
