Is this gamethrowing?

Postby SfantulPigeon » Mon Jun 07, 2021 5:54 am

So i just had a game. In this game it was mostly evils with like 3 town. I was a town, at this point of the game it was me and another town with 7 other people alive, the executioner came out and said their target was 5 so since it was evil majority we voted them up giving the executioner a win. But then both 5 and another player (which won) said they will report me for throwing, and im actually pretty scared, can i get banned for throwing for this even if i had no other option?

If the Executioner was confirmed execution or you honestly beleived that this was indeed and execution, you then have lynched a confirmed town, which is usually considered gamehtrowing as a fellow townie.

Really? But gamethrowing is intentionally decreasing your team's chances of winning. You can't do that if you chances of winning are already 0%, which seems to be the case for this user.
I still hope one day the game will have private lobbies. They would really help.

Right. I said that assuming it was a RP/R game where there are only mafia and town. I don't think players should have to assume others will leave in order to decide what to do.
In any case, I checked the reports on SfantulPigeon to see what gamemode it was, but apparently he wasn't even reported for this. So he is safe.

If you join a game where certain roles have a very low (not zero) chance of winning, you should be prepared to play to wincon if you get one of those roles.

Of course, good will from a night-immune kingmaker can increase town's (already very low) chances of winning in town-minority games. So the OP didn't necessarily throw by voting his teammate.

I said the 0% thing assuming this was a normal gamemode. But if there were several factions left, town still had a chance. Depending of the roles, some townies may have wanted to camouflage themselves as evils, though.
