Season 4 of Ranked Begins!

Hey Townies,

Today we will be starting Season 4 of Ranked. The biggest change coming with this Season is that the Arsonist will no longer be killed be Bodyguards, or traps. This means that the Arsonist's biggest weakness is time. Can they avoid the gallows long enough to set the Town aflame.

We will be doing a soft reset this season, so you will be placed at the bottom of your tier if you are above gold, if you are silver you will be reset to 1200, and if you are bronze you will be reset to the top of bronze.

With this season we will be keeping an eye on the Jailor meta that evolved last season, and will see how the Arsonist not being able to be stopped by protective roles affects this strategy.

Before finding out your initial rating you will be playing 10 placement games.

We want to wish you all good luck this season, and Happy Hanging!

Patch 2.3.2 End of Ranked Season 3

Hey Townies!

Today we will be patching and ending Ranked Season 3!

Ranked Season 3:
We will be ending Season 3 and going into off-season for a short time (a few days). Season 4 will be starting soon!

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.

Bug Fixes/Improvements:
Fixed an issue with the Queen Skin's Hanging animation looping.
Fixed a stalemate issue with Coven roles and Escort as the only roles left.
The Werewolf no longer has a button to visit himself, if he doesn't target anyone he will still stay home though. If you stay home you will no longer get a message saying "You attacked someone" for selecting yourself, as you can no longer select yourself
Fixed an issue where a revealed Mayor could be healed if transported.
The Witch was removed from the Psychic tutorial message as part of their investigative results.
Fixed an issue that would cause Customization changes to not be saved if you had No Pet selected.
Fixed an issue that allowed players to spoof Jailor Death notes.
Fixed an issue where the Vigilante could sometimes target another player after shooting a Town member.
Fixed an issue that could allow multiple of the same Coven role to spawn in All Any.
Fixed an issue where if the Witch, a Vig, and any other town role were left, if the Vig was controlled to kill the other town member the Town would win, even though the Vig should suicide leaving the Witch.
Fixed an issue where if you were attacked by Medusa, healed, but killed by something that bypasses healing you would still be stoned.
Fixed an issue where if you were poisoned, healed the next night, and poisoned the night you were healed you wouldn't be told you were poisoned again.


Balance Changes:
Arsonist: The Arsonist will no longer be killed when dousing a player protected by a Bodyguard, or a trap. The Bodyguard will not die protecting the target either. 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).

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).
