Im happy to announce that we added some major changes to out bot+map interaction protocol.
As a result of this, now we can control chances of becoming werewolf depending on player’s statistics and experience. Yet any player can choose a role that he wants to play which will shift his chances.
Players who are new to the game will have the lowest chance to become a werewolf. People who show good skills playing werewolf will have slightly more chances to become one.
It is still not a 100%, we are keeping a lot of randomness in this.
If you want to choose a role for which you would like to play you can use these commands:
Keep in mind, that these commands should be WHISPERED to the bot, not typed in lobby chat.
villager (or ‘vill’, ‘nowolf’, ‘notwolf’, ‘notww’, ‘v’) – will decrease your chance to become a werewolf, you will most likely stay as villager for the whole game;
werewolf (or ‘wolf’, ‘makemeww’, ‘iwanttobeww’, ‘ww’, ‘w’) – will increase your chances to become a werewolf;
reset (or ‘random’, ‘any’, ‘res’, ‘r’) – will reset your chance back to random
Example: if you desperately want to be a wolf in current game you do this /w FBot werewolf
If you are scared of playing werewolf, or simply don’t feel comfortable enough running around naked during nights, type /w FBot villager
TIP: No exclamation mark before the command!
Eurobatle players should whisper to ‘FBot1’.
Yet we added opportunity to vote for ‘no secrets’ mode in lobby, to vote for it type this in chat:
!nosecrets (or ‘!nos’, ‘!ns’) – will flag you voting “yes” on ‘no secrets’ game mode. This voting has no time limit, your flag will stay ‘yes’ until the game starts or you leave the lobby.
All these commands can only be used before the game start and will work in current game only, meaning that in next game you will have to run them again.
However, if you want this to be a permanent change you can use these public commands in lobby chat:
!gamemode werewolf (or ‘wolf’, ‘ww’) – will increase your chances to become a werewolf in all your games;
!gamemode villager (or ‘vill’, ‘v’) – will decrease your chances to be werewolf in all future games;
!gamemode reset (or ‘random’, ‘any’) – will reset your option back to random chance in all future games.
If you don’t want others to see what you choose, you can use this:
!gamemode switch (or ‘change’) – will swap between ‘werewolf’, ‘random’ and ‘villager’ modes if you keep running this command.
(‘gamemode’ can be replaced with ‘mode’ or ‘gm’)
Example: You want your default mode for all your games to be werewolf, type
!gamemode werewolf or !gm ww
If you want to avoid becoming werewolf as much as possible, run in chat !gamemode villager or !gm v
If you set this option, every time you join a new game, your mode is automatically being set to your choice. However, if you want to play this particular game with other role without changing your global option, you still can use private commands to do that.
Keep in mind that if you change your global option, current game option is also being changed. No need to repeat it in private command.
We are hoping that you will like these implementations. Leave any questions/suggestions in this topic please.
