Players A, B, C, and D in a ranked/competitive game. Players A, B and C have voted for Player D, and Player D has not voted. The timer runs out, and it is kicked. Player D has now been sent to the graveyard, and the game is still in ranked/competitive status (Player D has been 'kicklynched').
But, it turns out Player D was town, and Player B, the maf, wins. GG.
Reasons FOR Kick-Lynching:
Keeping games ranked/competitive.
When using a Random Lynch, makes sure you don't make it mylo by lynching an inno when the player that didn't vote was inno too. (Example: 2 Mafias, 5 Towns, Player 5 haven't voted, but everyone seems to be leaning to the pretty scummy Player 6. Both Player 6 and Player 5 is innocent, but the town settles on lynching Player 6, which in the end kills 2 Towns, which means the mafia wins unless their kill isn't stopped by something) tldr. Kills one instead of two in the day.
Since the one not voting is AFK or disconnected, he is not contributing to the talk during the day. By lynching him, you do your lynch, and gets to keep all the talking townies. Yay for scumhunting!
Could be mafia trying to look like a trolling town.
Reasons NOT to Kick-Lynch
Obvious reasons such as the player not voting is clear.
May be trolling town.
Instead of Kick-Lynching, yell something at him. Wait a few seconds. Maybe he or she is just at the toilet or something.
