Combining them wouldn't really make sense, they don't work together.
Nor should they in this game. That's another point I made: too many groups make for a broken game of mafia. See last game: If you have three groups (town, wolves, crost), the loser is whoever fails to team up. Period. Its dumb.

The neutrals in this game shouldn't know each other. You may say it makes no sense that the League don't know each other, but it makes no sense that the cop doesnt know who the doctor is in mafia too: that's the whole point of the game.

It comes down to this. How do you balance flavor and fidelity to the source material with design integrity? Which is more important to you?

Take a look at my SpyWolf games. I've always felt that, with the inherent chaos, a max of three groups with clear, executable goals is the best any game can support. This is on top of certain players knowing a certain # of other players (eg the wolf team), as there can only be a limited # at one time or it devolves into groupthink sessions lead by Pyure.

My game had 4 teams. It wasn't a clusterfuck either, just a lot of people had no idea what to do

My game had 3 teams.

Well, one team started off with just one guy, then grew throughout the game.

we're starting 6/6/16 if we can't get more members. :\
Um, just in case you missed my last post just checking since my name isn't removed from the player list yet >_>
Sorry, but I'll have to drop out. I will be going on a trip soon and I don't think I will be able to continue playing during that time.

Shalom, boys, we're back. Shame on all of you; Dylan's had "Profags" in the OP for like a week and a half and no one's called him on it.

@dylanpiera: Still looking for signups? Will one person make a difference here, or will I just throw off your even number of ten?

Interesting enough, the spittlebutt that I've heard is that Overwatch is the scavenged remains of Blizzard's Project Titan. Which explains the rich background for what is basically Team Fortress 2.

1. Yes it is.
2. Have you played it AT ALL? It's nothing like TF2.
