Snakes of a Plane! was pretty infamously ruined by the moderator, bluesoul.

First, the game was rampant with moderator mistakes with vote counts, rules questions, absences, and so forth. He also actually locked the thread for a day in "observance" of "Snakes on a Plane Day."

Second, one role was the "Director" who actually had no loss condition (read: bad role). That player basically had knowledge of the set-up and nightactions, and could choose to "reshoot" scenes (i.e., cancel a night's worth of night-actions).

Third, the Mod then abandoned the game for four months. The Director took over moderating since they were the only one with (semi) knowledge of the set-up. This involved at least one replacement (me!) who could not actually get a role PM.

And fourth, at the very end of the game, when the game was down to 6 players, the Moderator returned (though he still did not send me a role PM). When we then dropped to 5 players on Day 8, as a "reward" to the Director for keeping the game running (who -- again -- did not have an alignment, and could not, in fact, lose), bluesoul then confirmed to the Town that the Director was "not a threat to the Town." In other words, in 5-player endgame he confirmed that one of the players who was legitimately up for lynching/vigging should not be lynched/vigged.

A Day 1 page 1 quicklynch, a horrible moderror that resulted in the wrong mafia nightkill target, a pretty normal Day 2, until...
the moderror came out...
a dumb day 3 quicklynch, partially due to an unnecessary town lie about role...
then a mod flaking the game, and many MYLO situations with nokill and nolynch, within a second moderror(of the listmod who took over the game by then) and finally a Day 18 Lynch. Distribution of roles seems to have been wrongly handled too, but I don't know when.

And that all in a micro.

At least the game was theoretically interesting: it went and demonstrated a brand new way in which games could be broken, which I don't think anyone had previously realised was possible. So a) you can't really blame the moderator for that bit specifically, and b) it lead to new discoveries in Mafia theory.

As someone who had to experience that from beginning to end, I have to agree with this.

can't believe i forgot about this one

Open 666 (funnily enough) was infamously bad pretty much entirely due to the modding. Starting out with a 24 hour prod timer and replacements after only two prods, all you have to do is ISO the mod to see the ridiculous number of people prodded and replaced who were still basically entirely active – this only lead to more people asking to replace out as the game got near-impossible to follow due to the sheer number of slots changing hands.

Finally, a serious of stunningly poor mod decisions basically lead to town losing. Someone was modkilled for using spoiler tags, but that wasn't even the worst part – the mod didn't reset the votecount after modkilling someone in 4 player MyLo when someone already had their vote on someone else. What this meant was that scum could have theoretically quickhammered to just steal the game right there. The fact that the last scum didn't do that lead to him being falsely locktowned and scum quickhammering.

I only opened this thread to see if Open 666 was included.

If I remember correctly, by the time we got down to 7 players every single slot had been replaced at least once.

Never forget it. It died so painfully from both Mod and Player basically killing everything.

Made me not try a Large Theme game again until recently. I also think Drealm disappeared after that game? I bailed the site around April before I made this account and restarted my journey.


Oh, yeah, I was in this game, and have no clue what happened. I don’t even remember dying. I think I was cult recruited super early.
