I feel weird from both Dwlee and Scorpious. They try to set up a legend that I'm a god tier player (am not) and then at the same time argue that scum doing something means I auto die. It's a nonsensical setup that leaves me confused.

I have several theories in my head regarding Scorpious and the surrounding players that I’m gonna be giving over the next few days given that it seems to be the focal point of the game right now. Don’t take it to heart, I’m getting my thoughts out.

Theory #1 - Crescent and Scorpious (Scumpartners) The little back and forth on Day 1 could have been the partners doing a little theatre and heavy distancing. This is why Crescent didn’t vote Scorpious and why Scorpious voted Crescent, but ultimately didn’t stay there and ended on MonkeyMan

Theory #2 - Crescent & Scorpious (Townies) They are both town and have just been clashing with each other readswise, personality-wise, and play style-wise. The back and forth was genuine townie frustration and misunderstanding of perceptions and interpretations.

Theory #3 - Vanya and Scorpious (Scumpartners) Vanya here for similar reasons as Crescrent with the jump onto Scorpious for voting himself. Was a scum ploy to distance themselves. Both ended on MonkeyMan

Theory #4 - Vanya and Scorpious
(Town v Scum) Vanya could have jumped on town!Scorpious for voting for himself in an effort to get people to jump on and keep that suspicion going while he jumps on another townie in MonkeyMan.

Will have more later but I’m out right now.

Also if Scorpious is indeed scum I don’t see towncred being that important for Gamma to bus so early in the day, Scorpious being fine with it. I don’t maybe Gamma is just town even if it is town!Scorpious. Be back later.

Like every time Scorpious talks about you it confuses me too.

But my issue specifically with Gamma was the reasoning. DWLee calling out the death immediately is NAI. Cara was even faster than Gamma and I don't feel based it strictly on his survival.

I concede this may just be a difference in meta between communities, though.

Town Scorpious would be the guy scum RBs every night and laughs at while he remains a constant distraction and potential vote off. Most games I've played in have had a roleblocker. Is it less common here?

My last scum game I had a strong cop read (he was a scanner, just not cop) on an underwhelming day 1 player going into night 1 and spammed roleblocks on him for four nights.

He claimed day 4 and was the game winning scumhammer on day 5. This is exactly what I'd do with Scorpious here unless something forced me to change my strategy.

Basically I felt there was a 0% chance Scorpious would die regardless of alignment. Also, I feel scum should already have a pretty good idea who they're shooting tonight.

It may really just be a significant difference in mentality? The more I know the more I can adjust my feelers.

Theory #5 - Vanya and Scorpious (Town v Scum or town v town) town!Vanya catches scum!Scorpious voting for himself and Scorpious gets out of the suspicion by soft claiming pr. Vanya stops voting here and is now not wanting to vote for pr. If town!Vanya is interacting with town!Scorpious then it could be why Vanya stopped voting pr and Scorpious sounds so townie.

Theory #6 - Titus and Scorpious (Scumpartners)
Okay so Titus going after her partner for two days in a row is definitely not ideal scumplay, although it could work if there is a greater plan at play.

Theory #7 - Titus and Scorpious(Town v Scum)
Town!Titus has locked on to scum!Scorpious and is not letting him go. It’s pretty simple here and there is not much to perceive.

Theory #8 - (Scum v Town) Scum!Titus locking onto town!Scorpious could maybe work as there is suspicion on Scorpious and if he flips town the reason of scummy behavior could be used which would have been the consensus of everyone and suspicion on scum!Titus could be overlooked with a good enough defense.

So...I have a way if random voting in every single game I play. Scorpious wanted me to break that pattern because they didn't want to go to 4 votes so quickly, but I ain't breaking my method for them. You can call it shutting down the conversation, but my last game had scorpious in it and they know elegantly what I was going to do



You seem overly worried about how you look.

Vanya's vote looks worse to me; sure it's earlier but it actually has some merit as an attempt to push the wagon forward
geraintm's isolated vote that doesn't seem to be made as such an attempt looks better to me.
though I think geraintm is scummier than Vanya?
I think the vote post itself looks worse for Vanya but further posts from geraintm muddies their alignment :eek:


How is mine even bad. Self-voting is always anti-town.


Talking in absolutes about joke votes?

Just look in the forum. I think there is a spot that you must declare who your main is.

I’m always too lazy, or don’t care enough.

And yes.. it’s super common. I’m not a fan.

Scorpious is apparently an Even Night Jailkeeper and said he crumbed his role with the 1st letter of posts he had on Day 1

E
V
E
N
N
I
G
H
T
J
K

Convenient or Calculated is the question. Did he just post and it just so happened that he found the posts that spelled out his role, or did he purposely post in this way to make sure he could highlight it later? Then the killer question is was this town motivated or scum motivated.

The motivation is in fact nai because for both alignments you are trying to survive and you don’t want to get “falsely” killed and alluding to previous posts as crumbing your role are done by both alignments and it does not in fact prove anything.

However, if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and acts like a duck chances are it’s just a duck and Scorpious has sounded townie, reacted townie, and overall has felt townie.

I won’t be voting for Scorpious today. Even night is tonight, but he should more than likely be nightkilled and if he is not we kill him tomorrow. I don’t agree that scum would roleblock instead of kill because there is no guarantee that the target actually gets eliminated. What if there’s a guilty?

Scorpious did pull the pr move in another game and was scum. I believe time will prove this case to be true or false, but I believe there is a better elimination for today.

There's two major flaws with Scorpious's decision to crumb from post 1. First, it supposes only town will see it. There's no way that by post 8, Scorpious would know the crumbs would be safe.

Second, he misunderstands (regardless of his alignment) the strengths I bring to the table. I am better than some at the game because I try to surround people with the skills I lack. I am better with data but shit with undertones and the "crumbs" are one big undertone.

Scorpious has been all about division, while I want a setup that best allows hunting..

I mean, this is a legitimate issue I have with crumbing, the potential for scum to catch it, instead of town.
…but what makes it scummy? The conclusion you’re coming to that Scorpious felt safe to crumb doesn’t really make sense if it’s something they always do.
If Scorpious tends to only crumb on occasion then it’s something to consider, for sure. Otherwise, I don’t see how overlaying your personal views on crumbing over their decision-making is a good way to approach this.
