not that it matters but here is my logic...
when there are 9 players, 3 of which are mafia, then no lynch stinks.
But with 8 players 3 of which are mafia, no lynch makes sense.
3 vs 5 with no lynch and night kill = 3 vs 4 the next day (improved odds of correctly getting a mafia especially with claimed doc/cop combo)
3 vs 5 with lynch = possible end game (town lynch - which it looks like we are heading to + night kill) = 3 vs 3 mafia wins--
