Mafia has taught me how to navigate an online crowd and slowly bring them to my side. It is an art form not always based on logical arguments, but subtle forms of persuasion. Rhythm, timing, alliance, humor, are needed to support logic.

It has also taught me that if I failed to bring people to my side, perhaps I was wrong and should accept it with grace.

It has taught me when to disengage, and when to back off to let other people defend my townieness and the ideas I brought on the table.

When to listen, support, encourage, other people's reads - to be a team player, to give and take.

I have found these skills to be very useful in Meat World. They are totally transferable.
