Jester buff idea.

Postby TheAntagonisticKitty » Sun Oct 13, 2019 11:18 am

The Jester can visit people at night now, but it doesn't do anything. The TI's will see that you visited someone and you will get killed by veterans who are on alert if you visit one. Also maybe the person who you visited may get a message telling them you were visited or that someone tried to kill you.

Playing Jester is kinda boring because you literally have nothing to do at night so I think this idea might make playing Jester more interesting. What do you guys think?

Well, it would be beneficial if you want to visit a jailor who claimed D1 and is probaly be looked after by a Lookout. If i was in charge here i would have added it!

Here's my problem with people changing Jester. It's whole existence is to fool town through words and claims into lynching them as well as not get killed at night.

A lot of people suggested giving Jester defense but that would literally get them lynched by default which kind of ruins the whole point of the role. This change however if you completely fake visit it kind of makes the easy role even easier. The only change Jester needs is an after-lynch ability and a newer goal to fit it into NE (or move it into NB)

But here's the problem, it's already extremely hard to win with, there isn't much for the jester to work with and it's super easy to see through so it has a low lynch rate when people are not stupid. And frankly, it can't be neutral benign if it has a killing ability.

That's the thing, it actually is fairly easy to win as. Just don't be transparent and vote guilty on the jailor or other stuff like that.

No it isn't. I use to be very good at jester but there aren't many strategies you can use anymore, people see through them unless super new or super dumb. I've claimed surv and don't get hung. I've pretended to be exe and don't get hung. Etc.

If a strategy consistently doesn't get you hung when you're Jester, try doing the exact same thing when you're evil.

The weird thing is, it's like I have entirely different luck when I'm evil, lol.
