Fakeclaiming sheriff day 2

Postby Joacgroso » Fri Jun 18, 2021 8:29 pm

I've seen many jailor using this strategy in "high elo ranked" when they force whoever they jail first to fakeclaim sheriff and accuse a random person day 2 of being suspicious. What are your thoughts on this strategy? I know reading votes is a good idea, but is it necessary to force a false 1 for 1 in order to get them? Can't you just VFR?
I still hope one day the game will have private lobbies. They would really help.
Also, please nerf vampire hunters.

I've seen it in some youtube videos and reports from ranked.

Overall, the strategy could be beneficial to weasle out weaker claims and see how people react then the player could just say it was jailors idea!

Or if jailor suspects the person they jailed it could be a sort of setup you know?

I've never tried it personally but seems interesting.

It's a pretty good strategy and is a better alternative than fake claiming sheriff D2 yourself because it means you won't have to out yourself if the person you want to accuse turns out to be town. You can also use this strategy to figure out if your jailee is evil or not. Obviously though, the other players would probably report you for gamethrowing if the play goes wrong because a lot of ranked players (especially ones in lower elo) are metaslaves who still claim jailor D1.

I still don't get how that is better than VFR. I can understand fakeclaiming sheriff to out someone you scumread, but why do that randomly on day 2? Won't evils get mayority after a misslynch? I can imagine that many townies will vote guilty too if there is a sheriff claim involved, so it's not like you can scumread much out of it unless you are very lucky and accuse an evil.

Also, how can you tell wheter the person you forced to fakeclaim is evil or not? I honestly don't get this strategy.
