journalist is the most boring info role, at least the maf counterpart has the advantage of being maf

I agree with Journalist. Very underwhelming. Invisible man as well.

journalist is only exciting when they catch gramps or ww lbr

with all of the power roles currently available in sandbox, cop is no longer a worthy role for the ol box. cop was an acceptable role when we were very limited in role options and when people knew to sanity test. most newcomers don't realize they have to sanity test and just out reports d1 or think they're roleblocked if they're lazy, and frankly considering that we have roles like det, santa, tracker, psychic, and justice, we don't need it. plus lazy cop got ruined even further by having reports pushed back one more event. with most games ending around d4, having to wait one day, one night, and then one day to get your first report is truly ridiculous.

zombie is the worst alternate of cult
cyborg only belongs in third party majority setups

I don't mind journalist. It has more uses than people give it credit for. Plus, it's okay if some roles are weaker than others. That's what makes the game exciting and dynamic

i actually disagree about invisible man, its not as hard as journo to get a good result because u can actually see what people are sending to each other as opposed to just getting whatever messages they got, which can be indispensable if its a cult game or even just a particularly chatty maf. i once got all three maf in one invisible meeting because the person i chose was (obviously) maf, and then the two partners said each others names not realizing there was an invisible LMAO

1000% agree; lazy cop used to be the secret diamond in the rough of the 12p random, but since it got gutted its now as useless as the other "gimmick" cop roles (paranoid cop, naive cop, confused cop). insane cop and sane cop are both still somewhat useful, but honestly since det is so much more reliable and tracker can more immediately connect a person to a kill, cop becomes pretty superfluous

gunslinger/sharpshooter when the setup decides to not give gun roles is so painful. dont like it. not one bit
LeEpicHNov 12, 2020
gonna say it: santa and det are too op. being able to confidently determine a role every night and being able to give items AND determine true alingment? they would be balanced if det only could invest once and santa could only either determine alignment or give items. but now these prs are way too op

The problem with invisible man is the way to play against is to not talk, in a game that's a social game. It's not broken it's just dumb.
