WARNING! Accuse with less than 3 stars of Evidence at your own Risk!

Sleuth Admin

Some corner cutters amongst you had discovered some safe ways to accuse suspects without first gathering 3 stars of evidence.

In sticking with the original intent of the game (not to mention our hitherto faultless game documentation), it is no longer safe to ever accuse with only 1 or 2 stars.

Good luck out there...

and Happy Sleuthing.

@Lu:

Yeah, since she (cj) really didn't want to lose the case after spending so much resources in it, she might as well narrow everything down and in case there's 1 or 2 PE left which she couldn't get it to match, then its better to quit. lol...in the end, the choice is still up to her to choose, whether to risk it or to quit it.

Well I have just managed to acquire my first FA in a very long time by a piece of carelessness - and also a slightly sneaky feature of the game. Sometimes 2 suspects will have very similar names (e.g. Willis and Willard) plus their avatars are almost identical - one might be slightly more sad or happy looking. If you also happen to turn up the motives for each while using research to check for whereabouts....canyou see where I'm going?

Yes i accused mr happy rather than mr sad (and now i'm sad rather than happy!). My fault entirely at the end of the day - i should have been more vigilant. But beware when those 'twin' avatars appear and save yourself some money.

I have almost doing the same. Why I double check to make sure name and alibi (fake) and 3 stars before I accuse. May take an extra second or two.

Randomness in the game really could kill some great detectives in the long run, especially with similar names and similar looks with their avatars. Just be very careful next time.

I too have fallen for similarly named characters, fortunately now I never get motive when looking for whereabouts.

I just completed a case with a suspect with 3 stars. However, he did NOT have a false alibi. I thought the real killer was someone else but ran out of manipulation to find the motive behind the suspect. So since the the one guy had 3 stars, I changed my mind. However, I lost the case and the suspect had 3 stars!! How is this possible???

Also, if the only evidence is a handprint, where do you go to test it? I've tried every place in town.

Police clerk in the police station in Doyleburgh can help you to match the handprint to the sample glasses taken from the suspects' houses.

3 stars + real alibi = not guilty
3 stars + unconfirmed alibi = maybe not guilty
3 stars + fake alibi = guilty

I have to say, Im on the " I DONT LIKE THE SETUP TEAM." I understand that the rules have always stated that you a suspect must have three stars, before a conviction. However, ever since the new setup, I have had to pay off three false accusations....and in ALL of those cases...I accused a suspect with a fake alibi, who actually had well over three stars. Therefore, based on my xp level, I have had to pay well over 220,000 in the past month! thats INSANE!

Needless to say, I have not only stopped doing stupendously hard cases, but I also find myself quitting almost every other case.

I LOVE a good challenge. However, I feel as though it has become more than just challenging, but rather...increasingly less fun, time consuming, and bothersome. I really dont understand, why there was a need to change the original setup, in the first place.

Overall....I BEG YOU TO PLEAAAASE CHANGE IT BACK!
