    Two and a half hours left. Unless, of course, we get all the remaining night actions submitted before that.

    Actually, with a pre-set deadline, it's best to let it run out even if all night actions have been submitted in order to keep the players from metagaming.

    The last thing you want is "Player X was online right before night ended, they must have been sending the kill! Lynch Player X!" and then oops cop gets forced to claim because of the host's actions.

    Aside from Bleys I don't think anyone on this forum would actually try to do that.

    Not saying it's a bad idea, I just doubt anyone here is going to go to that length to sniff out folks in mafia. Especially since you pointed out yourself it won't really tell you anything.

    Well that's a first.

    I did the exact opposite of what fynn told me. He said "one rule, don't die." I said I'll try not to and welp.

    Also, bleys. We have second accounts for a reason that limit even staff from seeing when someone is online. So unless people are somehow able to see more than even staff, no one should be able to connect who's online to the mafia accounts.

    Unless they correctly connect the account to who's playing it and correlate that with the online status of the main account, or work out what times of day given players post most frequently on, or looks at some factor I haven't thought of.

    And yes, I know that's unlikely, but sticking with pre-telegraphed deadlines gives zero chance for that type of metagaming to occur, and zero probability is preferable to a small probability.

    That's kinda your MO huh, reaching to fit silly meta game "rules".

    Just let the host, host, and let the players play. Obviously they're playing different than you are used to hence your in game reactions

    To be honest, the simple fact that you've made everyone aware of this means that any attempt to gain information from it is now pointless making the whole thing moot.

    Bleys needs to realise that the current EoFF Meta is to reject other Metas.
