They can give you an idea to read but aren’t everything

you misunderstood, i was saying how having limited information might lead to better decisions than having all of the information (e.g. i seem to be half-decent at vca from naked votecounts, while in-game i am very much not that)

what got me thinking about that is the fact how replacements in games are often pretty good at reading the game when they rep in. and how i seem to chronically make wrong choices in yeetlo as a player, while actually being kind of good at them as a spectator.

of course, these phenomenons might be due to the players in question not having preconceived notions about the game, rather than due to working with limited information; but are those two constructs even that different? :thonk:

In addition, scum play towards the players in the game, not for potential players to come in.

sorry new round probably isn't happening from me for like 2 weeks actually. Going on a 10 day vacation soon and trying to get lots of things done to prepare.

It's not that hard to do, though, if anyone else is interested in setting up a few rounds while I'm gone! Just copy some VCs into a Word document, use Find > Replace, to change the usernames and add the colors, and format it all for easy reading! It's fun coming up with the usernames, even :]

Yes.
They voted neither Prof Bird nor Never_Wolf but voted Sorcerer and StarSports.
(The game was Pav's Micro 1047, by the way.)
