it's jack the ripper. why isn't jack on the poll? are you seriously trying to defend that role?
Worst in what way? Siren and gingerbread man are the most unbalanced, but not in an offensive way.

ive never played a game with the role in my life and i was basing it off roles i know are played in sb/have been played before

none of the roles in the poll are that bad tbh
autocrat is annoying for town but playing as autocrat can be fun


i'm not a fan of zombie tho, it's like a worse cult. cyborg is fun if you see it as a relay race but it's only fun in 3rd party setups, not standard 7-3-2 setups

why is maid getting so much sh!t here you guys dont understand how cool it is to be able to lose simply by virtue of being assigned old at birth

depends on what you consider worst

worst in terms of means of winning, probably Siren

worst in terms of reducing fun from game, probably Cyborg (glitched as fk)

worst in terms of most annoying, probably Maid

The only bad roles in this poll is admirer because it doesn't work with sandbox setups, and warlock because they can choose no one.

Warlock is like monk, and is as easy/hard to win as monk. You can predict nl too. Not the best role, but not the worse.

Jack the Ripper was torn apart before it could even be tried in a setup. Lucid ruined it.

Cyborg and Usurper are pretty broken and unpopular, but I'd have to say what roles generally are the worst received based on long-time sandbox opinion would be Zombie, Old Maid and Autocrat. Just based on what ive seen for years don't read too much into this

Zombie makes the game go on for literal years and isn't fun to play as with no night conversation, Old Maid makes someone guaranteed to lose the game(often times on autowin to make someones efforts as town/mafia for the entire game pointless), and Autocrat is an anti-town role that people just hate, like mastermind but to a much larger extent(since you have to prioritize autocrat in order to be able to win)

Most 3rds that are excluded from setups are often because they're too hard to win or makes the game too annoying. I think that Zombie and Auto falls in the latter half, Maid would fall in the first since its impossible to win as but it always gets included in setups because people literal role swapping

maid is definitely just the poor mans amnesiac. amn has the benefit of not impacting the player amned (bc theyre dead) and of actually getting to choose the alignment ur going to side with. maid is just playing hot potato because no one wants to be stuck with maid for any length of time, while with amn it can be a good strat to actually wait longer and see what roles become available

i know its a low-ball meme to make fun of maid, but it is sincerely one of the worst roles in the game. really the only reason to include it in a setup is to just screw over a random player completely, which i guess has its merits but really doesnt add much to the game

cyborg and zombie also really suck, but zombie is way worse due to it ruining the social aspect of the game with no night meeting. cyborg is one of those roles with a difficult to understand mechanic that makes it unfun, but unlike zombie it COULD be made fun if someone ever figures it out LMAO
worst third role
