Some more of my questions about the game.

Postby Y1DeFH » Wed Oct 09, 2019 4:04 pm

Question one: If two transporters transport the same target with different people, what determines what transporter has priority to the first targets transportation?
Example: Transporter A transports player C just the same night as transporter B transports player C, transporter A moves player C with player Z BUT transporter B moves player C with player Y.
This can also happen were Transporter A moves player C with player D while transporter B moves player D with player E. Who in this situation will end up transporting player D?

Question two: A doctor cannot heal a revealed mayor because the option never is possible, but if a transporter moves a mayor with a healable target and the doctor heals the healable target and is put into the mayor what will happen? Will the doctor visit the mayor and not heal, will they actually heal the mayor, or maybe just not visit?

Question One - Completely random. It will also be difficult to get information to see who has priority so you can't answer that question guaranteed. But to answer your example as best as I can, If A got to player C first, C would move. C can also move again if Transporter B transported where player C was placed after being transported the first time, thus sometimes, you see someone saying they were transported twice.

Question 2. The mayor will never be healed by doctor. If they get transported, the player who was switched with them will be healed instead.

as far as i can tell its random whoever gets transed twice... guess ya could set up a custom game with 2 transporters, with 1st trans swapping player 1 and 2 and the second trans swapping player 2 and 3. In that scenario player 2 would never be transed twice, either player 1 or 3 would be. Do that for 5 nights and see who gets double transed, then second trans swap player 1 and 2 and 1st trans swap player 2 and 3, and see if results differ... maybe the same transporter will constantly get priority, maybe not.

In your 2nd scenario, the doctor will miss the healable target and target the mayor, thus wasting a night, as mayors cant be healed. (if the doc targeted the mayor, they will heal whoever mayor was transed with)

A doctor can visit a revealed mayor, they can trigger any traps on the mayor, doc can die to crusader/ambusher on the mayor, LO will see the doc visit the mayor, but the heal will never take place, even if the mayor is attacked that same night

Actually for question 1:

Since the transporter has priority 1, transporting always happens first. In the event of multiple transporters, the transporting happens in the order of which transporter joined the lobby first.

So if Trans A joins first and Trans B joins second, Trans A's transports will always occur first.

The Transporter-magic is a mystery on its own. There are a few more interactions with it, that depend on (for the player) invisible factors, especially in connection with the Witch.
There was a time that the Mayor could be healed this way, but at the end, I believe its no longer the case and the heal will fail, despite the Doc visiting the Mayor.
