Headmaster Oofis' Top 10 Worst Roles in ToS!
Note: for the most part this is my opinion; unless I say otherwise you may disagree with some of my picks.
I'm pretty sure this is just me but I always seem to die early as amne. Otherwise the role is okay.
One of 2 killing roles I dislike. Finding someone who you know you can shoot is difficult and if you do happen to find one, you may end up thanking a trans or a witch for your death (but I'll get to that later).
Mafia roles that aren't GF, Consig or B'mailer tend to be boring but framer stands out since it is rendered useless once the invests/sheriffs are dead.
Used to be awful, now it's just okay. Unfortunately some disguisers never realized the role was reworked and continue to sync their ability with that of the GF/mafioso.
The game portrays the mayor as the leader of the town who can singlehandedly lynch the mafia, however the consequences of revealing to the town is what makes mayor so bad.
Escort sucks because there's more chance of roleblocking a townie with abilities than a mafia with abilities.
Like with amne, this could be me, but I really struggle with exe. Anyone who has played Ranked ever knows that they can't win as exe.
Comes under the category of boring support roles. Seriously, when has forging wills ever been helpful in a proper game?
One of 2 killing roles I dislike. Arso used to be one of the worst roles but BMG buffed it recently and that turned out great. Wolf, on the other hand, has been buffed several times but still it's nearly impossible to win. If you don't pick anyone on the full moon night then you're basically an alert vet but you're evil, so one way or another you're going to be found. Plus, the invest meta forces you to claim sheriff which comes under the category of town roles that no one believes your claim of.
This one isn't just my opinion, the idea of trans as a whole is Literally Broken. If I roll trans, I don't bother using my abilities because it more often than not screws up town. Here's all the things you can potentially do as trans:
a. make a vig shoot a townie
b. send a townie to the veteran
c. give a false invest result
d. give a false sheriff result
e. give a false L/O result
f. get yourself framed
g. get yourself killed (don't try this one at home)
h. douse yourself
i. GF kills the mafioso
Well the last one is good but you're far more likely you'll come across one of the other situations early game. Also, this hasn't happened in any games I've had, but I had the thought that trans (as in transporter) sounds like the other trans (transgender), and new players may not know it means transporter. That might be silly but just saying.
Dishonourable mentions are all boring mafia roles, all town roles that no one believes your claim of, and all neutral roles except jester.
I think I doused myself like 6 times as trans
