    So I had this arguably genius idea for a theme that would happen in all of 1 second.

    CODE
    {
    "name": "RNG",
    "author": "Tesla Elesa",
    "minplayers": 3,
    "summary": "The RNG has gone completely mad (as if it weren't broken already)! Only one shall survive its murderous rampage; unworthy shall be decimated before the game even starts. Will you bow under random luck, or will you make it your bit- slave?",
    "ticks": {

    },
    {

    }[/HIDE]

    Features of the theme:
    • Why actually try when you can just win from being pro
    • Maximum power levelz
    • Screw the rules, I have H4X0R2 skillz
    • TROLOLOLOLOLO
    • But seriously, I don't think this is that bad of an idea
    • Supports anywhere from 3 players to 100, so never hurts to start it
    • Sometimes you get really lazy and this would be cool
    [/HIDE]

    Suggest improvements here.

    I believe this was done with some poisoning theme. I think it was called quick poison or something. It was actually submitted for review.

    You know there is no way this is ever going to happen right? We complain about games being to quick already and this is just to quick.

    Also, the name of the winning role should totally be Beast. :D Beast is a beast name with no bias what so ever coming from me, Beast.

    No, quick poison was an actual theme with roles and stuff. This is more of a dice role, probability type thing. Not much of a game actually, just something I thought we might start every so often between games to establish dominance. Or something like that.

    UPDATE: Beast role added upon request.

    I'd critique this theme but anything I'd say to improve this theme would make me lose all credibility I had after my siggy, both as a reviewer and a human being. And since I refuse to resort to blatant swearing (I do enough of that in-channel), I'm just going to say this:

    NO.

    EDIT: You may be serious about this, and that's great, but I am too. This theme will never ever ever make it on server because it's mindless timewasting without the fun aspect of kills. It is not mafia, it is not fixable. Tesla Elesa, you can do much, much better.

    You do realize I'm serious about this right? I feel like it would add positively to the server.

    - Unballanced
    - Lasts too few time
    - No strategy

    Reject [1] even before this goes under review.

    Completely agree ^

    EDIT: Actually, I just disagree with the "never ever ever" part because I really guess everything can be improved. But Tesla, you can do much better.[/HIDE]

    Figured as much. I'd probably reject if too, if that makes you feel any better.

    Completely agree. Kinda just wanted to code it for no particular reason.

    That I can. I should be getting on a third theme anyway (lol fixing FiM). It's been far too long.

    So this is you trolling? You just said you would reject this theme.

    I am not against you implementing an instant-win role in another theme. This can be done in many ways. I don't think people would like it since when I wanted to do it I was shot down. :(

    Well, it's not exactly trolling, although it did seem to have that unintended effect. It's another one of those "throw these gimmicky ideas onto a pile" sort of thing.

    I'd like to apologise for my previous posts. I didn't know this was an actual genuine thread.

    I'll try and help you with this theme in return:
    Give the Fails a chance of winning, such as perhaps having a kill, and if they kill the Winrar, they win perhaps?

    Lol. I don't see this happening. Thanks for sharing it though. It made my day.

    Also, for the Beast role, is the role description supposed to be a reference to Blow by Ke$ha?

    with the new /detain punishment for mafia, this theme could abuse that system and therefore it is very unlikely that any theme along these lines will be successful, sorry

    I like it. It requires a lot of strategy. You have to join at JUST the right time in order to be chosen for the winning role... If you are too soon, you lose. Too late, you lose. If you talk too much, you lose. If you don't talk enough, you lose. It's a very delicate balance that all mafia themes should take note of. I'd seriously like to see it on the server though, just a fun little game.... The only problem is it wastes at least 1 minute to start up...

    I'm pretty sure any QC that approved this would get in quite a bit of trouble. Quite simply an InstaWin theme has nothing to do with mafia. It is funny tho, I'll give you that.

    Themes like this make me feel that it would be awesome to have a separate channel for those stupid themes ideas.

    Bumping this because now I really want a separate Mafia channel dedicated to really bad themes. As long as the coding works. :>

    My suggestion is add a role called Lucky bastard, so if a player get this role, and at the same time win the game, he becomes Mafia mod.

    The min. players should be 2.
    For all those reasons, this is a bad theme. Otherwise, best theme.
