Technically, no:

It’s just that the mods kept insisting everyone on getting one so they won’t have to be stressed out making VCs, responding to players, etc. 24/7.

yeah I asked because I looked to find it and was like “wait a second, this isn’t anywhere!”

Haha yeah, I went looking for it too and couldn’t find it, but I remembered it being a thing :ayaya:

yeah, I don’t think it was ever a rule, so if it’s supposed to be one it should probably be written down?

This is what was said before I remembered it being posted here.

So rule applied to FM games needing co-host

So it’s only FM games?

To what I know and stated here yes you don’t.

I have messaged a mod on discord for you to make sure and will confirm 100% when I get a reply. Or they will.

Sorry for the delay

They required Marluna to have a co-host for their Elements misc even though they said they don’t need one, so pretty sure it’s a general rule.

And really it’s a good idea even though it usually seems pointless. We’ve had unexpected situations happen in the past and the mods had to quickly figure out what to do to let the game continue for the benefit of the players.

Thought the co-host requirement was already in the hosting guide ngl lol
Will add that

But yes, cohosts are required for almost all games, excluding turbos and some miscs

If it has any immediate action processing or votecounts, it needs a cohost

Minority rule should be fine to run without one

This is intentional, as it is the most convenient way to let your players know that this is The Most Competitive Game That They’ll Ever Play™ and not random bullshit that you’re throwing at them.
