pray tell your reasoning...
Certainly. Argument 1: Hard Role "I would be a lot more active, but my role is...well uneasy for a new player."
(#1062) "QuadrAlien - Lurking, same as me. But even though its scummy for me I have slight reason for it...school and my role."
I ask myself: is Actor really such a hard role to be used as a permanent excuse? No, it most definitely isn't. Imagine on the other hand you're drafted in a game mostly filled with seasoned players as a complete newbie, and get a Serial Killer to play. That is
hard, and it would very much explain Detlik's permanent headless chicken mode. Argument 2: Metamodding
Okay, this isn't entirely kosher, but there's a thing or two I know about balancing, and one of them is that in game design, symmetry is extremely attractive. It feels neat, and also makes balancing itself easier. Just consider this: two third party roles. A survivor with two votes, and a serial killer with one severely crippled vote. Rodzaju as the anti-Detlik and vice versa; the survivor gets a weapon that could help him change the course of the game in his favour (which he needs pretty badly), and the serial killer gets a neat claim to hide behind (because it's a role that inevitably will be discovered sooner rather than later); also, a serial killer doesn't care one bit who is lynched as long as it isn't him, so taking away part of his voting privileges doesn't matter at all. Voting power remains more or less equal in all factions.
Again, this does not arise out of Detlik's play and as such may be frowned upon, but on the other hand, good luck getting anything useful out of his posts which are few and far between.
(Fun fact: have you noticed Damnation's avatar is perfectly symmetrical?) Argument 3: Which isn't an argument at all
As long as Detlik's being discussed, I don't know if anyone remembers that he tried roleplaying a drunk in #5 ("Ugh...I shouldn't drink so much. I feel like my head will split open. Did anyone actually know the guy?")
, and also posted the weird line that's been bugging me ever since just at the start of day three, in #1441: /throws rock against the wall
I have no idea what either of these two things point to, if anything.
