I think I belong to those who are loved by the dices, or the deck of cards, or whatever the Mod uses...

Games: WWJ IV, WWJ V, WWJ VI
Modded: 0
Ordinary Villager: 1
Hunter: 0
Ranger: 1
Cobbler: 0
Wolf: 0
Seer: 1

On winning team: 2 out of 3 (66%)
On losing team: 1 out of 3 (33%)

Killed by wolves: 1 out of 3
lynched: 0 out of 3
survived till the end: 2 out of 3


WWJ IV: First game, being a seer... wasted one day in trying to pin Roa_Aoife with even remotely believable theories. In the end had to come forwards (we had already lynched our hunter, and the wolves had gotten our ranger). We had no chance in that one.

WWJ V: Second game as a ranger... went much better. Managed to team up with Roa (seer) and to save one innocent life in the end by guarding her.

WWJ VI: Third game... ordo at last! It was so much easier this time. Although I was almost lynched the first night. Boro had magnificient dreaming-capabilities (two wolves, two nights), and I managed to come up with a theory over the third one. With Jenny's initiative and Diamond's astonishing re-entry we killed the third wolf on the third day.

Just incredibly fun stuff!

Btw. I don't have files for WW, but sometimes, in a heated game with lots of posting, I print at my school the last pages that have been coming in while I've been working, and then on my way home, drop into my neighbourhood Czech-pub, and analyze them as good as I can, with an ale or two. That's a great way to leave the working-day behind...

Well let's see now.

WW 4 - Ranger - lynched Day 1 - villagers won (victory).
WW 5 - Mythomaniac turned wolf - survived - wolves won (victory).
WW 6 - Ranger - killed Night 2 - villagers won (victory).
WW 7 - Seer - killed Night 6 - wolves won (loss).
WW 9 - Ordo - lynched Day 6 - wolves won (loss).
WW 13 - Ordo - killed Night 3 - wolves won (loss).
WW 14 - Ordo - lynched Day 5 - wolves won (loss).
WW 15 - Ordo (wolf) - survived - wolves/ordos won (victory).
WW 16 - Cobbler - killed Night 2 - wolves won but draw agreed (victory).
WW 17 - Ordo - lynched Day 6 - villagers won (victory).
WW 18 - Ordo - killed by Hunter Night 6 - wolves won (loss).

WWJ 3 - Ordo - lynched Day 5 - villagers won (victory).

Victories: 7/12 - ooh over half!
Losses: 5/12

Victories while still alive: 2

Lynched: 5/12
Killed by wolves: 5/12

I have played all the original roles except Hunter and was the first ever Mythomaniac, which served me well!

I do keep files on some of the games and though they are only on the computer they are quite extensive when I've really got into a game.

I assign myself as Hunter to Mordor. Probably the worst performance in the history of WW (Feanor's killing of the Seer in a WWJ wasn't great, I admit, but at least she had the kudos of WWIV to fall back on.)
Hey...both of these examples involve me...am I some kind of Hunter's Bane?

I thought you played great as Hunter in WWXIII--your only problem was staying alive so long. Also I seem to recall a lot of talk after the game was over about how everyone knew I was the wolf anyway but you all let me live so the game wouldn't be over so fast. And then, in a fit of dumb luck, I attacked the Cursed. Can't blame yourself for that, can you? Actually I'm starting to think I should retire--as a wolf I was so obvious that the villagers actually played along with me, and as Seer I was so suspicious that the Hunter killed me.

I wonder if the Hunter should have a suicide option if he/she is really sure of the identity of one of the wolves, and the village hasn't cottoned on yet.

Know what might be handy...a list (shock!) of all the players who have ever played, and their timezones, and maybe a list of roles and their deviants. If this thread is to be a reference thread.

You killed me, you were the hunter and I was the wolf. I guess the title is misleading.

Well, yes, that's how Fea chose to narrate your death...I guess it's a special case. But I didn't really live up to the Hunter role - dying and taking someone along to the grave.

Silmaril Werewolf Survivor

One of the points of creating this thread was to provide an opportunity to look for particular patterns arising from the games that have been played. The recent talk concerning those who have survived games prompted me to wonder about the extent to which survival to the end is related to one’s role.

So I made a list of the number of survivors in each role. This covers all of the games concluded to date, with the exception of Sleepy’s game. The latter has not yet been “catalogued” here and, frankly, I am confused over just who survived. It looks to me, however, that most of those who survived the game (if not the final narrative) were ordinary villagers, which would not affect the statistics below too much.

Survivors:

Werewolf: 22
Black Beorning: 0
Cobbler: 1
Mytho: 2
Cursed: 2 (once as a Wolf, once as an Ordinary Villager)
Seer: 1
Ranger: 0
Hunter: 6 (or 7, if you count Naria’s disappearance in WW17)
Shirriff: 3
Ordinary Villager: 29


(For Anguirel’s game, the Heroes have been counted as Wolves and the un-gifted Wolves as Ordinary Villagers.)

While this is fairly “rough and ready”, since it is affected by the number of times each role has been used and the number of villagers with that role in each game, I think that some broad conclusions can still be drawn.

Obviously, the “safest” role is that of Ordinary Villager, but that is because of the “safety in numbers” principle (similar to the survival tactics of herd animals ). Ords are the most numerous in any game, and therefore have a much better chance of survival.

It does not surprise me that the second “safest” role is that of Werewolf, because on average the Werewolves tend to win more times than the Villagers and, where an equal number of Wolves and innocent Villagers are left on the final day, the Wolves survive whereas the innocents do not.

The figures suggest that your chances of surviving if you are a Ranger or the Seer are pretty negligible. That makes sense, given that these roles are prime Werewolf targets and the nature of the role can also often prompt a misconceived lynching. It also doesn’t surprise me that Werebears and Cobblers are more likely to die than not, given the nature of their roles.

But what is quite noticeable is that, proportionately (given that there is usually only one per village), Hunters have a very high survival rate. I suppose that this is explicable by the fact that Wolves are often able to identify the Hunter, and Hunters are more likely to declare themselves or drop obvious hints, and Wolves are then more likely to avoid them as nightly kills for fear of one of their own being taken down.

The Shirriff survival rate is also quite impressive, given that they have only been included in a relatively small number of games.

No doubt this post confirms Mith’s view of me as borderline Aspergis …

At the risk of sounding horrendously uneducated, who or what is Aspergis?

It isn't a vegetable? It sounds like it ought to be a sort of vegetable...or maybe a sauce. I GET IT! ASPERGIS MUST BE A PUNGENT SAUCE!

It's what's in the saucepan...

That sounds quite disturbingly familiar. I prefer the Aspergis sauce, I'm afraid, the other is too close for comfort.

Modded: 0
Ordinary Villager: 4
Hunter: 0
Ranger: 1
Cobbler: 0
Wolf: 0
Seer: 0

On winning team: 2/5 (WWIV, WWXIX)
Killed by wolves: 3/5 (WWX, WWXIII, WWXIX)

Survived to end of game: 1/5 (WWIV)

Conclusion: A somewhat depressing 60% failure rate. Which is less depressing than my former 75% failure rate.

It's taken me long enough to do this... I blame it on WW XIX...

Stats:
Games: 8
Modded: 1
Werewolf: 3
Ordinary Villager: 2
Seer: 1
Fool: 1

On winning team: 3 out of 7 (43%)
On losing team: 4 out of 7 (57%)
Survived to end: 2 out of 7 (29%)

Killed by wolves: 3 out of 7 (43%)
Lynched: 2 out of 7 (29% - both times as a Wolf)
Survived till the end: 2 out of 7 (29%)

GAMES:
XI -Holbytlass's Game: Ordo, died at the end of the Game, killed by the last Werewolf, Alcarillo.
XII -The Phantom's game: Werewolf, lynched on Day 3 by village.
XIV - Alcarillo's game: Werewolf, survived the game.
XV - Anguirel's game: Seer (Sauron), survived the game.
XVI - Moderated
XVII - Meneltarmacil's Game: Ordo, killed by Werewolves during Night 7.
XVIII - Shelob's Game: False Seer (Fool), killed by Werewolves during Night 7.
XIX Nilpaurion Felagund's game: Werewolf, lynched on Day 6.

So, the analysis suggests that I'm pretty even between wins and losses- and that I'm disproportionately likely to be a Werewolf. It also seems that I'm pretty good at lasting most of the game (with the exception of XII, I've made it to Day 6 or Game Over, whichever came first).

We'll see what happens to me in the next WWJ game... I'd really like to get those won/lost stats even.

Colorful stats, but very depressing. I might be taking some time off Werewolf for a while so I'll let this rest...

Boots The Lord High Scorekeeper is pleased to announce...

…that since this seems to be something of a record keeping thread, the running stats for wins and losses will appear here in future.

The Three have won 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, and 18 for a total of eleven wins.

The Ordos have won 4, 6, 8, 12, 15, 17, and 19 for a total of seven.

The Black Beornings have won squat for a total of naught.

The Lovers have won squat for a total of naught.

A Tie occurred in 16 making one.

And now we are back to being on the verge of maybe the villagers being able to win two in a row. Anybody want to start a pool on whether it actually happens?

Interestingly (well to me anyway) Eomer and I are now neck and neck on the win ratio front:
8/10 for Eomer, making 80%, and 4/5 for me, also 80%.
Although clearly Eomer has the edge, having had more actual wins....

And Thinlo too, Lal. What a successful triumverate.

I'm still on one survival. Villagers and wolves alike desire to see me dead.

Kuru, when it actually happens, can I join the party?

I'm not posting my stats until I can report favourable results.

Well, since I claim XVI and XVIII ( SPW) as moral victories, I can report a favourable moral win rate. That count?

XVIII? When on your last DAY alive you realised Sauce was too easy to convince?

Hush, remind me not of that!

I honestly have no role I'd rather avoid.

Ranger is narrowly my favourite, and I'd love to try again at it and do better.

Then being a Werewolf, excellent tension and fiendishness, my favourite game ever was undoubtedly my WWJ wolf performance.

Then Seer, which I also enjoyed and was successful in through dumb luck and taking Eomer's advice, to be honest...

I would say "ordinary villager", but that would be a cop out and I've really enjoyed my villager games too actually...

I do want to be a Hunter eventually.

Previously I would have said Ranger was my worst role, having died by the end of Night 2 on two occasions. However, after my recent 'success' (I died but not til Night 5!) I am now much happier about it

Well, considering I've only played three games I'm not sure I can fill those blanks out.

At first I thought I never wanted to be an ordo again because my head was spinning all game & I was convinced that WW games were over-rated afterall. Now that I've played two more and watched countless more I don't think I'd be quite as easily fooled (not bragging). That would make being an ordo quite a bit less painful...I wouldn't mind being an ordo again.

At first I was not thrilled at being Cobbler because I didn't understand the role to well. After playing a full game with the role it can be a trying role but I enjoyed the challenge. I wouldn't mind being a Cobbler again.

I'm not 100% sure I'm patient enough for the Seer role...I know in my WWJ game as Seer I went for the kill when I thought I had the chance, knowing it was a stupid move. Still, I wouldn't mind being a Seer again either, that way I could try the role without trying to pull off a stupid strategy.

So at this point I don't think I could fill out those blanks, I'm not sure if that'd change with more games, but...I guess we'll have to see on that one.

I'm curious: Has anyone ever modded a game & then wished they hadn't afterwards? Because of the time commitment, because it was more challenging then they expected, because of any reason at all?

How about it?

My only problem was the time. Because I am a student and do extra-curricular activities, it takes up a lot of time. So, as those of you who played in either of my games saw, the time got changed quite a bit. However, I always managed to get it back on track. Other then that, I had a blast!

This isn't a hard one: an ordo simply because I've been one far to many times. It gets rather annoying actually...

I've only been able to play twice, due to school hours and final papers and other such things, but it's made me admire the game much more. Almost as much as a good poppyseed muffin, which I hold in high esteem at any meal time.

Playing ability has been sadly, horrible.

Games: 2
Ordinary Villager: 1, and unfortunately thought to be too suspicious to be true.
Werewolf: 1, horrible really when the other two live in much different time zones.
Lived through: 0

I know, pathetic. But, there are some wonderful things I've gotten out of the two. The first one was a wonderful experience to excerise nose grinding logic until my head cracked. Also, it brought me to meet a new friend, and I'm sure the rest of you pretty much know from there. Plus, I ended up a lonely une poisson sandwich in the end, but oh was it fun to scheme with logic!

The second one, besides the time zone woes, really was horrible. I had to kill myself off because, my teacher decided to assign yet another thesis paper on the roll of 'evils' of human nature and their effect in selected classical and modern literature. Good thing is, I recieved 100% on overall understanding and writing of the subject. Also, I really enjoyed reading and watching how the game unfolded.

So, overall, I have not 'won' any of the games, but I have won wonderful experiences, memories and met and seen more of people. Plus, anticipation for when ever I can play again, or watch another game.

I truly hope this will not be the case for me. Actually I'm already having a ton of fun and my game hasn't even started yet. Just plotting and watching the list of signer-uppers grow has been most fun.

As for the original question, I'm not sure I can really answer it either, having only played in three games so far. I feel as if I should try out every role at least once before deciding.

When are you going to be playing again, btw? I was thinking of PMing you about my game, but then it filled up much to my surprise so I kind of chucked my "people to PM" list.
