Coming Soon!: Patch 2.3.2 End of Ranked Season 3

Hey Townies!

Today we are here to announce the end of Ranked Season 3, and give you a few other updates.


Ranked Season 3:
We will be ending Season 3 and going into off-season for a short time (a few days) starting Wednesday, 4pm CST. You still have a couple days to climb and try to hit your Ranked goals! Season 4 will be starting not long after the end of Season 3.

Season 3 of Ranked has gone about how we expected. The Jester change bumped up the win rates of evil roles, and brought down the win rates of of the Town.

We did see the effects that the “Jailor Meta” had at certain tiers of play, and want to make a change for this season to help address this to a degree. The change we plan to make that seemed to get quite a bit of support from one of our Dev Update posts is that the Arsonist will no longer die to the Bodyguard, or traps when they douse someone. The Arsonist has always been one of, if not the slowest, killer in the game. Due to this we feel that time being their major weakness is appropriate. This means that no protective role in the game can stop an Arsonist from dousing, or igniting a player (outside of a Guardian Angel removing a douse). We believe that this threat of being doused, and not being able to be protected, will help prevent powerful roles from claiming early in the game, as they may be killed by the Arsonist. We will be keeping an eye on the actual effect that this change will have on the game, with ranked specifically in mind. We do not believe this change will hurt any other mode to a serious degree.

With Season 3 coming to a close you will be getting rewards based on what rank you achieved. Anyone who received the rank of Gold or above will receive the Golden Doge pet.

Unity Port Update:
We have been making leaps and bounds of progress with the Unity port, it is looking absolutely fantastic. The port feels much smoother, it looks much better, and gives Town of Salem a much more polished feel. Look forward to another announcement in about a months time! We will be announcing the release date then. I have seen several people respond to our previous update post with all the screenshots from the mobile version of the port, and it has been overwhelmingly positive. If you haven’t seen the new updates we are making with Unity check some of them out below!

Special abilities menus/targeting menu:

In this image you can see how the new targeting menu works. Some special menus were removed, like the Jailor’s, and you are able to just select a player during the day and select to jail them.

Next to the targeting menu here you can see that roles with a special action that doesn’t target anyone/can only target one player is an clickable icon now. This will show for things like Bodyguards that have a vest left, or Arsonists who can ignite.

About This Game

Purchase comes with the exclusive SteamBot3000 Character Skin with unique death animation, 2,000 Town Points ($8 Value) and you will earn double Merit Points forever!

Town of Salem is a fresh innovation on the classic party games Mafia and Werewolf. It is a game of murder, accusations, deceit and mob hysteria.

How To Play

The game ranges from 7 to 15 players. These players are randomly divided into alignments - Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Neutrals. If you are a Town member (the good guys) you must track down the Mafia and other villains before they kill you. The catch? You don't know who is a Town member and who is a villain.

If you are an evil role, such as a Serial Killer, you secretly murder town members in the veil of night and try to avoid getting caught.

Roles

Town of Salem has 33 unique roles ensuring a different experience each time you play.

Before a game starts, players are put into a lobby where the host can select what roles will be in the game. Players are then assigned roles at random from the list of chosen roles. Players have an in-game role card that explains their role's abilities and alignments. For an in-depth look at the abilities of each role please visit: www.blankmediagames.com/roles

Game Phases

Night

The night phase is when most roles use their abilities. For example, Serial Killers stealthily murder people, Doctors heal people who are attacked, and Sheriffs interrogate people for suspicious activity.

Day

The day phase allows the Town members to discuss who they suspect of being an evil role. Once the voting phase starts a majority vote from the town will put someone on trial.

Defense

The defense phase is when you plead your innocence to the town. Have a convincing story or find yourself facing the gallows!

Judgement

During this phase the town will vote on the fate of the defendant. Players can vote guilty, innocent or abstain. If there are more guilty votes than innocent votes the defendant is sentenced to death by hanging!

Customization

Players are able to choose their own map (town setting), character, pet, lobby icon, death animation, house and a custom name. The other players in the game will see your selections. There are currently 10 maps, 29 characters, 20 pets, 5 death animations and 20 houses to choose from.

Achievements

There are currently over 220 unique achievements in the game. Earning achievements will grant various in-game items (however the items for donation rewards are exclusive to Kickstarter).
