It’s true, but it’s the inevitable result from any method to try and limit/stop VFL by limiting the amount of trials no matter what. Honestly I don’t really see how it’s a particularly effective strategy in this game (though would need a newbie free mode to really give a fair judgement on any cookie cutter strategy).
I’d also point out, the one trial, would make (if he were to return in a similar to his old form), the noble/aristocrat, as well as the kings finger, far more powerful abilities, both for good and for bad.
My personal thought on the VFL trend that’s going on (which tbh I never witnessed, but I heard enough people complain about it in recent days I guess it hit suddenly and hard when I didn’t have time to play), is that town of salem’s ranked vets all took off from ToS due to a recent huge bug, and decided to try starting out with what is a near auto win strategy that works in ToS, and assumed it would work here. (to which I’d say it is far less likely to work here, due to about a dozen factors)
Why I don’t think VFC will have a long duration here even if we did nothing about it mechanically
- No concrete role list
- No seperation of new players from vets (which admitted is both the stregnth and weakness of this strategy. new players aren’t going to think to CC the 2nd claim of their class, and may not have logs/good logs as BD… but they are also even more likely to not have a fake log as evil)
- Evil king (we all know what happens if the prince hits the stand).
The meta shift is from a huge wave of people who believe winning at all costs is everything… when it doesn’t win… it’s usage will fade pretty quick.
