Hey Townies!

We made a change to Spy for the time being to make it at least a viable role in the Coven. We have a full rework planned for the future, and are taking suggestions on this thread if you would like to throw your 2 cents in: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=68695

The Spy can no longer read whispers or Mafia chat, and now sees the visits of the Coven members.

Dev Note: Be aware this is a temporary change that will not stick around. We will be working to get a completely reworked Spy out there into the game soon. We felt the Spy's ability to read whispers and night chats was an abusive power that was so powerful it was useless. There are many cases where seeing the Mafia chat meant that the Mafia just never said anything useful in their chats, unless it was a last ditch effort to win, or you were playing with new players that didn't know how the Spy worked. The same applies to whispers. It seemed that any role trying to whisper would be outed, and because of that there wasn't a reason to do it, unless you were trying to do some fancy strategies. While there were ways to get around this they weren't really good. We felt that the Spy's mechanics just limited evil roles in the town from working together and using the different mechanics they had access to just by existing as a role.
