I haven't had any mod experiences yet, but I've never really understand the need anyway. With a repick system in place and a votekick system, what good could mods possibly do? I've never (in all custom maps that have them) seen them be useful, while I have seen them abuse power and be assholes.
This map is really good, but it is ruined by cheaters and people will stop playing it when they realize they r cheated. I played 3 games with same guys watercolour, hybris, assassin, executor on Europe server and they cheated via Skype. They joined every game and we all left cause of them and they kept coming so no games could be played. Please make some sort of banlist for nolifers that cheat in game like monopoly, ty.
Banning is extremely easily circumvented. There is no possible way to make a banlist because player names are unavailable (cannot be read) because they are text instead of string. The only other way to do it will never work because 1. you can unban yourself by deleting your bank, and 2. hackers would be able to permaban people given enough time. A kickvote system is similarly extremely abuseable.
You can blame Blizzard on this one. Not being able to kick in the lobby is a gigantic failure.
The problem is that Mafia's gameplay revolves around a vote-lynch process and already has a 75%-repick process. You'll see hosts literally being kicked out of the game if they try to make a mason-centric setup or pad the game out with citizens. Plus the kind of damage that system would do during the day is potentially great.
I've played maybe 14 games now, and my second game as a Godfather = victory. 4 people left. Me(GF), Sheriff, Invest, someone else. The day before I jumped on bandwagon and lynched my framer(my last fellow Mafia), 100% guilty vote. I kill "someone else" at night. Invest reveals himself, saying I am the GF. I get put up on vote. I say "if I was GF why would I lynch my own guy??" and sure enough, I don't get lynched. I kill the Invest at night, and then laugh my way to sweet victory.
GJ DarkRevenant. I really enjoy this. The first few times I played, it just all seemed so random. I didn't really know what all the roles were and what was possible etc, so it was very confusing/overwhelming and sometimes just purely not fun. But I stuck with it and I am glad I did.
EDIT: Oh ya, the Mafioso was afk all game until he got SK'd. :\
