    this is from the homepage of TWmentor, a site many of you may use.

    im curious to other peoples' view on what it says above. is it really needed to lie, or betray people just to advance yourself in this game?

    i would say if you had any skill in this game that you wouldnt need to "cheat" to get to the top.
    sad part is it seems so many people do :icon_confused:

    Yes, people do lie in game, and it is somewhat needed to be successful in this game. I've been plotted against so the majority of my council could get out of a giant pile of shit while they left me there. I managed to get out in the end anyway, but the majority of the tribe got owned anyway.

    And yes, this happens in the real world.

    Further more a reason to become an hero.

    I lied, but only to Shahyd and only because I had hilarious consequences when he finally figured it out.

    Other than that I do not agree with lying to meet your own agenda. However I can see its strategic benefit and use in tribal politics and relations. This game is actually very socially complex with a lot of it relying on the relationships between players and tribes with each having their own set of goals and many doing anything the can to further those goals. While it is not necessary to succeed it is one method. If anything it would teach younger kids to be wary of things and not take everything at face value as little children have a tendency to do, maybe robbing their innocence but teaching them a life lesson early.

    lying once or twice is one thing, but i meant more people whose whole playing style is based on lying to people(although i guess i should have worded my first post a little better :icon_neutral: )

    In that case they are seriously flawed.

    What I dislike about the game is it seems to reward the tribe hoppers tbh, who hop from place to place just because a tribe has a good rank and stuff.

    Unfortunately its those people who stay longer.

    ...and no, I'm not suggesting anything like W27.
