Vig should always try to kill who they think is scum on N1. They should do the same every future night unless having one less player for town is perceived as ending the game overnight. If its N0 you should kill any player with a reputation or ruining games and or ruining the fun for everyone. For example if there is someone in your game that has ruined a previously concluded game by posting their role pm day 1, kill that player now!

Only reasons you should mod kill a player is if they purposely break site and or game rules in a way that ruins everyone else's fun

I’m eagerly awaiting the follow up thread to this: Should a doc who heals be modkilled or a cop who investigates?

I think think it’s a close call but this thread even beats the quickhammering ban thread - just barelyl :lol:

Thing with Nancy is we just need to tread carefully because if you slip up around her as scum she notices and will tear your spine out and slap you to death with it.

(I'm slightly scared of Nancy)

I won't always kill on night 0 as vig. Put me in a game with some of the most respectable players who have a history of great games as multiple alignments, I am killing no one night 0.

Put me in a game with one game ruiner on night 0 and give me a kill, I can tell you exactly who I am killing. If there is more than one previously banned, site rules breaker in the game, its gonna be dependent on how I am feeling that day and or if I got a dice or a coin near by to decide which bad player gets it

It's normally mathematically correct to vig on N0, and aim for someone who's good at scum and bad at town. (Note that such players often tend to be game-ruining or highly erratic, so this has a very high correlation with PokerFace's strategy.)

There are some setups in which N0 vigging is incorrect, but they're rare enough that it's only worth doing in an Open (when you've analysed the setup and calculated that it's a bad idea).

However, most good moderators won't allow players access to N0 vig kills anyway, as doing so means that you have to get more players for your game and not all of them get to play.

Vig kill functions very similarly to a lynch..

Anyway, if you think a power role should only be used a specific way that is very different from how it is used in site meta, it's potentially possible that you're right and everyone else is wrong. Excluding the role from your games would probably be the best call.
