I played 20 unranked games on alt..14

I originally posted this under my alt but I don't have enough anything to post anywhere --

I want to play a heart game. I've played 20 unranked games on my alt. Only 2 have counted. This is ridiculous.

  • a game where there are 12 players and ONE person suicides or vegges should still count
  • a 7 player game decided on day 2 should count

This is insane. I've definitely played 10 full games worth of EpicMafia on my alt. I understand there are spammers but I have no idea how you intend to attract new players with these absurd requirements. You need to pass Day TWO for it to count? That's ridiculous.

it needs to last 5 minutes.

you can play 2 of your accounts in the same game if it is unranked (no hearts).

start this setup 10 times and let it idle for 5 minutes:

the five minutes is in game length; pre game does not count

Do sandbox games count?

I have a feeling this guy will never complete his 10 unranked games.

I just played a 22 minute unranked 10 player game that got down to final 4 and someone decided to veg AFTER the mishammer and the game was already decided.

Result? NOPE IT DOESN'T COUNT AS AN UNRANKED GAME.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA TAKE THAT NEW PLAYERS SUFFER MORE.

i personally don't have a problem with this. new players need to undergo rigorous training like this. firstly, i vegged multiple times as mafia/doc/cop, if i could have played ranked games i would have way more white part on my pie. secondly, i vegged multiple times when i had a gun, same thing; if i didn't know i had to vote the gun i would have vegged multiple times. furthermore, it's not like everyone who plays unranked is just there to troll. i learned classic mafia basics (cc'ing cop as maf, baiting doc when guiltied) in unranked. if i were to play ranked games i would have throw pretty much a bunch of my earliest games.

setups other than classic or gnh are the dumpsterfires imo, like sitd or illuminati confirmed, and must be avoided until you absolutely know how epicmafia works.

fool lyncher is literally a knowledge only experienced players know so they can bypass this. but if you're absolutely new like me you just randomly join games and take what you've learned from them.

i think the problem here is that you're forced to play 10 unranked games even if you know the basics. that's a different story. maybe make it so that you can refer to an account of yours whenever you make a new account so you don't have to go through an hour of grinding.

also I think if you loosen the 5 minute no veg criteria a bunch of new players would lose their first games in red hearts. it's not like mentorship system is right in front of new players.

imo Lucid should give mods a lobby-specific key to play ranked. That way people can play ranked in any lobby without having to farm games by talking to the lobby's mod team. If he's ever around this should be pitched to him, could make a request thread like the whitelist one so people can post their alts to get approved for ranked. Would save a lot of hassle imo <3
