In this guide, I’ll be explaining the most BALANCED settings and rules my friends and I have been using ever since we started playing; Offline TV’s settings inspire it.

 

SIMPLE RULES WITH FRIENDS EVERYONE SHOULD RESPECT

Hey there, readers, welcome to my guide! First off, I’ll explain the rules I would like everyone to have in their games to maintain a healthy relationship together.

RULE #1: Use Discord; I don’t know why you would want to use the in-game text chat when there’s free software that allows you to voice call with friends.

RULE #2: Mute microphone while in-game or dead. Show your friendly impostor some respect by staying silent while he/she kills you, as this game requires ALOT of communication. Any small sounds or voices, or tones can be used against you. So MUTE YOUR MICROPHONE, only unmute in the discussion and voting phase.

RULE #3: Respect each other post-game, don’t be that guy, and attack/blame your friend after a game. You are free to analyze what went wrong/right last game but refrain from blaming your own friend as this is a full-on communicating game; everyone is tensed up and can be hurt quite easily. Don’t break your friendship over a game. It’s silly.

SOME TIPS:

  • Try to have fun! Even if you died first, finish up your tasks and listen to your friends falsely accusing the wrong person.
  • If you start feeling salty, let your friends know you want to get some breather. Go outside, or walk around your house. Stay away from your computer/phone for 5 minutes and come back.

 

THE GAME SETTINGS

I’ll start this section by letting all readers know that you play these settings;
With 8 or more players
In the map: THE SKELD or MIRA HQ [preferably MIRA if 8 or more players]

  • Game Settings: RECOMMENDED 8 OR MORE PLAYERS
  • Impostors: 2
  • Confirm Ejects: ✅ or not, decide with your friends.

  • Voting Time: 45 seconds
  • Player Speed: 1.0x
  • Crewmate Vision: 0.5x
  • Impostor Vision: 1.5x
  • Kill Cooldown: 30seconds
  • Kill Distance: Short
  • Visual Tasks: ✅ or not, decide with your friends.
  • # Common Tasks: 2
  • # Long Tasks: 1
  • # Short Tasks: 4

 

WHY THESE GAME SETTINGS?

I’ll explain everything point by point so that there’s no further confusion (I hope)

Why 8 or more players?

: It’s due to the default ruleset that I play, which always involves 2 impostors, but you can definitely make just 1 impostor and still use the default rules. But I don’t recommend playing at MIRA HQ if it’s just 1 impostor, too big of a map for 1 guy.Among Us - STANDARD RULES AND SETTINGS EVERYONE SHOULD TRY OUT!!

Confirm Ejects

: I have mixed feelings about this; I started with this ✅ed and have only recently started playing with unconfirmed ejects. This, to me, definitely makes the game more uncertain, which is probably what I dislike, being uncertain whether a person is an impostor or not. Having this unchecked leans onto Impostor sided and vice versa. Unless everyone’s already got the hang of playing together and learning the curves around this game, I suggest keeping it ✅ed. It makes Impostor feel tenser too when they see their friend getting ejected and everyone reacting, “NICE ONE BOYS, ONE IMPO LEFT!”

1 Emergency Meeting per person

: I think it’s most reasonable that only one person gets to call the meeting once is because of game balancing if you have a crewmate with 2 or more meeting calls. He/she can press it whenever they feel suspicion, so the point of using it wisely disappears. Among Us - STANDARD RULES AND SETTINGS EVERYONE SHOULD TRY OUT!!

Discussion & Voting Time

: If you and your friends are using Discord to communicate, stick with this amount of time to talk and vote. It keeps the game flow moving smoothly, with no extra time to talk nor second choices. However, if multiple people are using ingame text chat. Feel free to make the discussion time much longer, ESPECIALLY IF THEY’RE PLAYING ON THE PHONE. Ask your friends to get discord if they don’t.

Player Speed

: This is definitely the best movement speed I’ve played within the game; anything more or less is too fast or too slow. It feels just right to have this speed since you can turn around corners, run or chase easier.

Crewmate and Impostor Vision

: 0.5x vision for Crew and 1.0x for Impostor is a fair number for both sides(crew and impostor) because you’re not supposed to see how far the impostors can; it wouldn’t make much sense to see what the killers can. Again we’re aiming for the most optimized game settings; yes, Impos can sabotage the lights to reduce your vision even more but note that there are only 2 impostors, and there’s 6 or 8 crew in the game, so it’s 6v2 or 8v2.

Kill Cooldown

: The reason why kill cooldown should be this long is that in the beginning round, when a player reports, there would usually already be 2 deaths. This would lead to 4v2 or 6v2, and someone will likely get lynched and info out at the first round in an 8 player game. A 10 player game, however, is more difficult due to the number of players. So impostors would only likely get ruled out at the second round, and that would be 4 deaths if impostors are proficient in communicating with in-game movement.

Kill Distance

This one should obviously be kept short because you would NEVER want an impostor to kill you from a long-distance, especially moving at 1.0x speed where there’s more time for simple to decide whether to kill you not while following. This makes the impostors warier of their surroundings.

Visual Tasks

: I personally dislike deactivating this, but if your games are usually filled with 3v1 or 4v1 situations with your friends always saying, “COME TO MEDBAY I’LL PROVE I’M CREW.” Deactivate this because impostors will never win in that scenario. You get it, right? By deactivating visual tasks, players will now no longer be able to see what each other’s doing; deactivating this leans more onto the Impostor side.

Tasks Length and numbers

: For now, I’d suggest everyone follow what this guide says; I personally like the number of tasks this setting has for game-length purposes. Each game would last around 10-15 minutes, but the tasks don’t seem to fit your group’s playstyle. Make more or fewer tasks!
