DN, DV, and OGML are the obvious answers though.

I'm gonna add MattP to the conversation too, the biggest obstacle for him is that he's always such a clear threat to win

He also probably suffers from bad FTCs but we only saw that at the meet

It's interesting that both meet winners (OGML and peg) are people that have never won forum games

Tbf if you look at some of what makes IRL different it makes a lot of sense.

You can't not be around IRL (big peg problem), and general affect/non-verbal communication are more important (big boon to OGML)

Like I would posit that OGML or BBM would be the best on actual survivor of MS players that I've met IRL.

Eh, I've come within a vote of winning twice but the reality is I didn't get those last votes because my game is flawed.

My vote goes to OGML.

The games I've seen OGML in (I actually cant really speak to future trunks because we barely talked and he never was my ally, but at least in survivormeet, as tulsi, and as teemo), ogml makes too many alliances and people compares notes and stops trusting him. He killed the immunity run and was plain likable in survivormeet, but I don't think it would play out the same way on the real show unless he again had an immunity run

DN or BBM would probably both have a good shot in a real game

Like, OGML was an underdog in survivormeet for a reason, it was because the ongoing joke was he would tell X "lets eliminate Y" and 3 seconds later tell Y "lets eliminate X" and X and Y would 3 seconds later recap on it

Teemo once told me to fabricate a quote that he could send to Lulu to prove something

That was not a fun moment

Teemo told everyone at merge that my and his votes in the prior TC were switched (which if it were true made me look really bad), which everyone told me immediately, and at the same time teemo was telling me I was his f3. Thats the sort of stuff that gets him boned in games

OGML has massive editing issues, but the components to win are pretty clearly there.

Man, I wouldn't count meet winners as not winning, they won the most important Survivors of all.
I don't count Haschel as a non-winner either because he won Clash of the Mash, but we appear to be talking Survivor winners rather then LSG's.

I don't have people I'm shocked haven't won so much as people like skelda that I think will win a game eventually. Most people have a game under their belt somewhere.
