The primary 3 are memory, luck, and dexterity aka 200 + 25 + 25 vs. 222 + 1 + 1.

In hindsight, it probably would have been a good idea to make this less social between different pairs. Regardless, I am personally very impressed with how well XALX-E and Mud were able to do without being part of the alliance, and I was surprised the losing pair were both a part of the alliance.

Part 3 is Memory+Luck+Dexterity, which Klickbot has 250 in and Mud only had 224.

My strategy didn't involve alliances at all, honestly. I looked at the challenges and looked for the stats with the highest correlation (what stats were paired together the most). From there, I asked Shadow which set of stats she wanted to focus (Logic, Memory & Skill or Endurance. Speed, Luck & Dex). Shadow wanted the later, so I evened out 600 stats in the other 3 and threw the remainder in other stats just in case everyone completely dumpstered a stat.

EDIT: I put 200 in all 3 stats because I figured that all the high-staters would get voted out early.

You say this but you had 5 people programmed to never nominate you and vice versa :P

I dumpstered the top 3 stats completely because they're the only visible ones to avoid being nominated.
Ani I'm sure people not voting us helped us win a tad!

Cheesoid did a good job of goating to the end but I don't think he'd win many jury votes. Stupod zor stealing my Speed stat!

That was Shadow's idea.

Honestly, not allowing communication and alliances in this challenge would have defeated the whole point of Big Brother. Think of it as what would happen if Big Brother did a Blood vs. Water twist (or maybe they have already, who knows).

It would have been fun to see the communication limited to the public thread.
