Yoda

From MafiaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Yoda strategy involves acting crazy and/or flippant and/or mildly scummy or anti-town on the first day to try to lure wolves into voting to lynch the player as suspicious or a liability to village. The votes to lynch can then be analyzed and used as a pool of potential suspects. The downside of this strategy is that it can cause confusion, suspicion, and annoyance among the ranks of the villagers.

Games

wlf-070

This strategy was introduced by Prudence in wlf-070:

2019-Aug-14 17:15:29 Prudence how do you know I wasn't applying a little friendly pressure just to test the response and see if I could smoke out a wolf
2019-Aug-14 17:15:48 Stolas "Friendly pressure"
2019-Aug-14 17:16:15 Prudence it's kinda like Yoda acting all cray-cray when he first meets Luke Skywalker in the Empire Strikes Back, to see how he'll respond
2019-Aug-14 17:25:35 Nick If you're gonna act cray-cray like yoda, just stay away from my space hot dog.

At the end of that day, the vote was Jerathmiel=1 (Prudence), No Lynch=8 (Batibat, Luke, MrsWardwell, Gryla, Susie, Dorcas, Dorian, Nick), PrincpalHawthorne=2 (Salem, Harvey), Susie=1 (Tommy), Prudence=3 (Stolas, PrincpalHawthorne, Jerathmiel).

Of the three voting for Prudence, only PrincpalHawthorne was evil. The game ended in a village victory.

The Yoda strategy was tried again in wlf-071, in the form of a N0 vig shot (N1 in werewolv.es parlance), but in that game resulted in a wolf victory.

The Yoda strategy was also tried in wlf-074, a 13-player game with three wolves. In that game, three of the five players who voted for Caldarius turned out to be wolves:

2019-Sep-03 20:00:11 No Lynch=5 (Caldarius, Mellka, Miko, Benedict, Reyna), Caldarius=5 (Marquis, ISIC, ElDragon, Montana, Phoebe)
