What's the best move you've seen someone pull of in an LSG?

tetra and eldin's master sword takes the cake imo. that's the craziest thing I recall seeing pulled off. Boudica's consistent ability to survive would be the runner up for me

Master Sword is my favourite, even if it screwed me personally. But I also thought Krypto getting White Rabbit's item from her and then using it to help vote her out of Arkham City was savage and hilarious.

A Discussion of what best moves were best in terms of savagery is good too. Where does reviving the same person five times fall under that?

I'm only sorry about the very last time Jack went back in, entirely my fault. 3 of his moves were my doing. SORRY RECK.

Can we go back and retroactively change that game so that Jack can come back again?

Lol. Back on topic every time there's a fake merge with votes (or even better removal mechanics) I've loved it because it leads to shenanigans and Big Moves to pull. Were there moves like that in games before Arkham City?

Basically, there was an auction at F7 and Eldin claimed he was given The Master Sword, which was a double vote.
He & Tetra were the bottom 2 at F7, so they invented an item. Eldin told everyone it was a "revenge kill" that let him kill someone else if he gets voted out.
F7, Mido goes home. The majority alliance of 4 is now up 4-2.
At F6, Eldin wins immunity and claims he passed the revenge vote thing to Tetra, securing her for the round. The majority alliance of 4, it turns out, is REALLY a majority alliance of 3, and they cannibalize one of their own. Dominant majority alliance is now only up 3-2.
At F5, Eldin admits he never had a revenge kill item, he had an idol, and this is the last round to play it, so he is gonna play it. It scares the shit out of the 3 in the majority, but they managed to stick together anyway and put the votes on Eldin, who ACTUALLY activates the double vote, forcing the tie. Here, the DV counted through the revote, sending one of them home. Now, it's 2-2. Majority alliance isn't looking so major anymore.
At F4, Eldin/Tetra stay strong and tie the vote against the remaining 2 from the majority alliance. It goes to a tiebreaker challenge, Eldin wins. Suddenly, the underdogs are up 2-1.
At F3, Eldin wins immunity, takes Tetra to the end.

It was a crazy gambit that somehow worked and completely disintegrated the majority alliance. And they fell for it. Lie after lie.

Tetra, iirc Eldin couldn't be around during a lot of FTC and that really influenced the outcome

I thought the DV didn't count through the revote so tetra came up with some bluff where she said eldin had passed it to her convincing navi to voe off eoa or something lie that.

Haha actually it's funnier then this. The DV DIDN'T count through the revote, but Navi voted for Epona out of fear that it would and Epona was eliminated 3-2. Basically, the person who had the DV was tied and couldn't vote, but had said the item could be passed when it couldn't. It was lie after lie after lie.

When you're already that deep in you might as well keep going because the other option ends the whole charade.
