See, you're not understanding this. Our promises were this: if
the day ends now like it is, then
we will do such and such. These promises were mostly to coerce people into taking one night action or another. Our deal, if it went through, would've been kept, but there's nothing wrong with me retracting the deal now in light of the fact that scum will make us lose if we go through with the deal.
Basically these pacts aren't about stuff we're going to stick to no matter what changes, but there things we're resolving to do if the day ends right now. For example, webby "promised" to kill town if we went through with our deal. Retracting that threat now just because the deal is off wouldn't be untrustworthy, just practical. Threatening to do it and then not doing it after we lynched Woopate would be untrusworthy.

What I'm offering now isn't a deal. If you don't NK mafia tonight, then either mafia will NK town and you will lose, or nothing will happen and we'll be back to where we are now.

Actually it does, because we know that if we lynch Woopate, scum will NK us, thus making you win. We don't want that to happen, so we won't lynch Woopate. Therefore it helped scum.
Do you see what I'm saying? In order to survive we're making certain promises or resolutions that will be kept after
everything else happens but right now during the day they're subject to change as we get new information. The point of say, a promise to make scum lose if they nightkill us isn't a matter of revenge, but an incentive for scum not to nightkill us. The point of the deal with you was not to have that deal stay in stone for all eternity, but for the deal to be carried out properly if it did work out. If webby hadn't threatened us, the deal would still be available. Now it would be suicide for town to take the deal.
