That's not what you said at the time~ It wasn't really under your control.


Kel-Thuzad had it worst in my opinion because his tribe was told they were voting him into Exile which usually implies 1: You will be alone 2: Maybe you'll get something cool! Instead he was sent to a 3 person tribe on a separate forum, after they'd voted someone out meaning they were united and he was a free elimination. The 'balance analysis' for tribe sizes pre-game assumed this person would be voted out. Extra funny because the next round there was a tribe swap and Drench was sent into exile and got an idol. :V

from my understanding as a player, we were voting someone into exile within a game that had already been split into two, so the idea was there that they could go to the other side.

also that tribe could've just won immunity? i don't know how easy it was to Frankie Grande that challenge though
As I leave this Earth and sail into the infinite cosmic universe, the wars, the triumphs, the beauty, and the bloodshed, the ocean of human endeavor, it all grows quiet, insignificant. I'm nothing more than recycled stardust and borrowed energy, born from a rock, spinning in the aether. I watch my life backwards and forwards and I feel free. Nothing is real, love is everything, and I know nothing.

I think Kel'thuzad had it the worst also that I remember. Even if some people thought there was a chance that he might be eliminated, some of his voters did not.

The challenge that he was eliminated on also wasn't one that he could win himself since it was negotiation between the other tribes and his tribe had a massive incentive to throw it and claim the personal reward.

I also think many people have been swap-screwed without twists where there wasn't necessarily a path out, like Brenda in Medevac comes to mind. Obviously Alexis would come the next round and flip that around which makes it seem like Brenda theoretically could have as well, however with Alexis guaranteed to come in and with the amount of time she had I personally doubt that most players would have been able to survive her position. I know I've had fights with some of you about this before, but I really think that you can get screwed without crazy twists.

I think even with some crazy twists dont screw people.

twists usually dont screw people, they accelerate things (usually)

That's absolutely fair sometimes. However that doesn't change the fact that there are people who have won who if they got worse swaps premerge probably wouldn't have won. It's easy to say that someone wasn't screwed when they were eliminated and can't disprove you.

You guys are forgetting the Secret Partner thing again. Quinn was swap screwed but also screwed because Shaco was put on the one tribe the other side would actively look out for him.

Lots of people get ordinary swap screwed and when its a matter of the numbers being bad and they just didn't talk right and click with people I don't feel like that's good enough when we're talking about The Most Screwed Player Ever. There has to be like, an alignment of the perfect moments? Like being teleported into a tribe you won a challenge against and being eliminated by them is a high bar to get past.

Boring, he was eliminated because you connected better with me then he did, that's just normal survivor stuff!

If that counts, than everyone who got voted out in Terra Incognita before Saladin are the most screwed over players in MS history
Do I REALLY suck? That's up to you to decide.
