I'm getting good early townfeels from Quick and maybe Ahri.

There's been a little bit to chew on in the game already, but Somnus and Progo's posting have been exclusively off topic so far, which I don't like. I'd like to see wagons build on either of them. Wagon ho!

VOTE: Progo

We're all sharing how experienced we are? umm I have like 8-9 years from EpicMafia (2012 till it died) then have been here since, wouldn't say I'm a pro at this, always learning!! And uhh you can call me Andante/Anda/anything close, I really don't mind,

Just gonna say sorry ahead of time, I'm usually strongest early game, and I'm gonna be V/LA till like Jan 18th/19th really busy with IRL stuff right now, probably going to try and show up tomorrow and give thoughts, but 16-18 probably can't say anything, we'll see what happens!

My early thoughts thus far? umm nothing is really standing out yet, but that's cause nothing game related is really happening. I like Progo trying to get a wagon on me going to get something to happen, however, I don't really recommend voting people for not showing up, like, if people just never show up, they get replaced, it's a lot better to have like 2-3 of yall vote someone who you know is around and will give you reactions. Now you'll probably go "It worked! Andante showed up!!!" yeah I'm here, but it's morning, and this'll likely be all you get from me today. Also, just keep in mind when yall are wagoning someone, have an idea of how many votes are on that person. As a general rule, Do not put someone at E-1 unless you are ok with limming them. So uhh please don't make people E-1 off the rule of "they haven't talked" thanks!

Alright got stuff I need to go deal with, might try and come back later today, if not, I'll be back roughly this time tomorrow


EM?!!

Who are you lol, I don't remember an Andante, were you a sandbox player or yellow hearts?

Do you wanna talk about it?

Also telling me to "lay off" someone is weirdly strong tone for this stage of the game, especially on a post where I didn't even end up voting for Somnus.

Before, you posted:

In post 66, Cat Scratch Fever wrote:
In post 13, Ahri wrote:(2) two games on this site, both town, as well as some fast-paced chat mafia and irl games

Rereading this, you actually have a completed scumgame on this site

?


Here, you're exposing an inconsistency in what Ahri said that may suggest she's hiding something. This doesn't look like attempted bussing, so I doubt you're both mafia. So there's only three possibilities:

(1) You're town and Ahri is mafia. She tried to hide her experience as mafia in the last game and you pointed that out.

(2) You're mafia and Ahri is town. She made a mistake and you exploited it to draw suspicion on her.

(3) You're both town. She made a mistake and you pointed that out.

I just think (3) is the most probable.

Yeah I'm not disputing that.

What I don't get is why Andante would get town pings on you simply from your vote, even if you did place the second vote on a wagon. Forming early RVS wagons happens like every game, and both town and scum do it all the time.

So i feel like forming wagons can easily come from either scum or town (hence I view it as NAI).

No, you definitely don't need to have that list memorized right away! One of the goals of these newbie games is to get players more acquainted with forum mafia lingo. I just didn't realize that was the point of confusion

First of all, welcome. But secondly...

I'm not a big fan of this. While I'm not thrilled that you're going to be contributing little to nothing through most of Day 1, I do understand that real life happens. Your first post in the game is advising people to go after active participants in the game and let people who are posting little to nothing to just coast by and get rewarded for doing so.

I'm also not a big fan of anyone telling people how they can use their vote. Someone who lays down the hammering vote isn't more to blame for a potential mislim than the person who cast the first vote on them. It's a weird high-horse to be on with your first post of the game, intentional or not. Doesn't mean my reaction is, "OMG, MAFIA!" but I don't like it.

I'm likely holding off on voting for anyone for the first few days (IRL days, not game days). We still have a player who never entered the game and is presumably going to be replaced.

Fair enough. UNVOTE: Andante.

So... VOTE: Cat Scratch Ferver, because I'm a dog person because you voted for me!


Is this a defensive/retaliation vote or do you genuinely sniff Mafia here?

I like Ahri so far, but yeah, it's a bit premature. People are going to go after each other, vote each other, and put pressure on each other for reactions. It's part of the game and everyone, myself included, should be ok with it. I'd be curious to see if she's as defensive about anyone else who joins the super serious townbloc.

TMI = Too much info. It's a way of saying that a player knows more than they should about the roles/alignment of a player(s).
