Alliance doesn't make any sense in this game. Wolves hitting the Brutal Human is entirely luck-based (and there's way too many humans for those odds to be favorable), Wolves can re-kill whoever gets revived so that communication is almost immediately cut off, and the Reviver can only revive once anyway so there's no advantage to using the Reviver to set up an alliance. At best, the Seer finds the Brutal Human and sets up a private alliance there, but again, there's way too many players for those odds to be favorable. The best we can hope for is that the Brutal gets hit early and something happens from there.

Now, the other issue that I've been thinking about since this game was chosen: MOnik̶̔͞k̨̄͊̓̌͜͝k̇̓ͭ̓҉k̵ͬ̐̏̽̔̌͌͘k̂̐̿̿̋ͭͨ̊̀͜͢k̽̽ͭ̃̎̂ͯ̀a.

Dead players are still technically marked, but do not count toward the total counter of Monika's ability.  Rules updated to reflect this better.

Never too early, actually.

Points against bds and doodmoon for trying to stop an alliance like wut.

Wolves can re-kill whoever gets revived so that communication is almost immediately cut off

The confirmed human would unite the power roles then die again. How does his or her death stop the now formed alliance to cease communication?

In a game without a guardian and a vigi, an alliance is not only less useful, but impractical to form at all because there's also no "useless" role that can be sacrificed to get the specials together. A reviver is NOT a substitute for a guardian, and thinking that, IMO, is just more likely to get all the specials killed faster. While getting an alliance is always nice, to be honest, I don't think there are enough special roles (and not the right kind of special roles) to warrant forming an alliance.

It seems like your arguing more that an alliance isn't as useful as it's made out to be, but you haven't really given any downsides or reason not to. We use our revive on a regular human instead of a power role? The wolves potentially go for ridiculous risk killing themselves to screw with the plan? Please tell me the downside that outweighs the benefit of 4 confirmed humans, 3 of which the wolves don't know about.

Brainy and TZP for wolf partners 2K18

It feels like he was just bandwagoning on the general sentiment that was going on (i.e. discussion about the Brutal Human) without knowing that the Brutal Human didn't know who they are.

All right good, that's the assumption I was working on before.

Why don't you put that corn in a mirror for thousands of years and then see how it feels about the table. It would... really hate that table...

Seperate post because it's important. Do not publically announce it if you get marked by Monika. Since the Wolves and Monika can win together (tbh noc that feels pretty unbalanced) the wolves can simply avoid wolfing anyone who's marked and we just explode night 5. We want them redundantly targeting the same people.

Why? If we think an alliance is not beneficial, then why should we not voice our opinions?

Don't know what you're talking about, but to be honest, I think the only point for an alliance is Khajiit. That being said, forming an alliance successfully is much, much more difficult and impractical at this point, especially since, as mentioned before, the Brutal Human does not know who they are and has no way of connecting with the alliance unless seered. There would not be "4 confirmed humans, 3 of which the wolves don't know about."

This is a good point though, and thank you for mentioning that.

1. Human dies, does not have to be brutal human
2. Reviver revives dead human
3. During this phase, the seer, reviver, and khajiit claim to the revived human.
4. human unites them in a group pm
5. You have an alliance of 4 confirmed humans, which will probably be dropped down to three due to the confirmed human being known to the wolves.

I'm still not 100% sold on the plan. The problem with that though is that there's still no mouthpiece for the alliance. And no guardian means that the specials are probably at a slightly greater risk of dying if they're together (because of potential slips, especially if one of them tries to defend the others). Plus, there's no saying that one of the specials won't be the one wolfed. :K

I agree, the Monika mechanic seems a bit unbalanced. Now, concerning alliances & all that, I’ve read both sides of the discussion and here are my thoughts: I think an alliance could be useful, if everything indeed works out in our favour. With that said, it would need to be seer-based, as using the revive this early on could prove detrimental later on. Sure, we’d have a confirmed human then, and a small alliance could be quickly set up, but given the person revived is revived at the beginning of a night phase, they only have 24 hours to not only set up an alliance but try to see through a possible false-claim by the wolves. In addition, who’s to say a more useful revive wouldn’t be needed later on (such as the Brutal, my next point)? Unless the person wolved N1 is the Brutal, in which case they need to be revived ASAP, because that’s the big role the wolves won’t be as inclined to mess with (unless they’re willing to sacrifice another of their numbers?), I believe the revive needs to lay low.

Those are good points I forgot to mention/didn't think of at first.
