For arso to survive all any, it needs the ability to you know, not douse a fellow arso. That's a big waste of a night for both of them.

if you're saying arso should be douse immune, agreed
Factional balance - understanding that whisper games are bad because they cause Town to win a disproportionate amount

Strategical balance - understanding that whisper games are bad because there's no reason to use any other strategy

Structural balance - understanding that disabling the Mayor's whispers, despite it fixing whisper games, means that a player can't use a core mechanic of the game and is still bad

This matters - educate yourself.

Yep, it just shouldn't be target-able by another arso.

No, they should definitely be targetable, the douse just shouldn't work if the target is another Arsonist. Making Arsonists from the beginning of the game grants too large of an advantage.

I agree with this, though wouldn't that also mean that any Arsonists that end up dousing themselves have to be douse immune as well?

Here's the thing, the arsonists don't have much going for them. They have to deal with the mafia, who knows how many Sks, often a werewolf, town and often vampires in just mafia mode. Sure, their win rate in all any is the highest of any mode but that still isn't very high. I don't see a point in just making them immune to it rather than just not letting them be targeted. It's either this or give them a chat. But they should have douse immunity encase they douse themselves for sure, just not either or.

Yeah this would be smart to add, would also stop Witch/CL from mass-destroying Arsonists

I feel like the having to clean the gas off yourself is an unnecessary part of Arsonist. Assuming you somehow douse yourself, you aren’t just punished for that night by being unable to make another douse, on top of that you have to not visit in order to cleanse yourself from it. That’s 2 crucial nights wasted.

Arsonist already has >1 KPN. This makes it worse, so yeah they should be douse-immune.

EDIT: They have <1 KPN. Forgot which was which for a sec
