@NuclearBurrito made a post recently that made me realize something:
Cult Alts are really a relic of a bygone era.
Back when Cult Alts and Cult Points were implemented, there was a lot of feedback in FoL. This caused the Cult to be wildly underpowered, as without the night abilities of their claim almost every convert was instantly outed.
Nowadays though? We’ve dropped feedback considerably, so this is a lot less true now.
So, I was wondering - do we think the point may come when we retire Cult Alts? After all, the whole point of the Cult is to have more but weaker members, like a Cult in FM, while the Unseen has less but stronger members, acting like a Mafia in FM. Cult Alts, while entirely necessary at the time, do bridge this gap considerably.
Maybe we’ll figure something out someday and drop Cult Alts entirely. Who knows?
