I ISO'd sesq and it's a lot of self contradictory posting that IDK if it's scummy or towny or what

In post 399, the worst wrote:hot take: we need to hammer Sesq who will do nothing to defend themselves or flashwagon volxen who is one rung townier and will become extremely obvious later if scum

:]

VOTE: volxen

volxen made a lot of scumsplaining and description posts that added no leans and didn't help the game move forward. I think he has a bigger chance of being scum than sesq who is probably kind of... incoherent? regardless of what they rand.

In post 387, Reundo wrote:Sesq isn't a terrible lynch, but the way it built up didn't make much sense either. It seemed mostly based on their play here not lining up with their town meta, which sort of makes sense but unless their play here is similar to their scum game it might just be NAI. A lot of players have talked about their lack of motivation in this game, and it's debatable how much of this is genuine or just an excuse but it's wide-spread enough to where I can see Sesq just not being at their A-game this game. Just looking at this game specifically, I'm struggling to see a definite scum agenda to their play. I'm annoyed by their limited scum-reads and coasting behavior, but at the same time they clearly don't care about the impression they give off and they're not super motivated to start a counter-wagon, even going as far as to town-read volxen. It almost feels like they're playing to get lynched in some aspects, which honestly does make some sense as a scum play-style, but I'm kind of iffy on it.

Pretty much where I ended up on Sesq.

In post 393, Huntress wrote:Top scum read Keyser Söze. I really didn't like his attack on Reundo's first posts, particularly post . It was over the top and came across as an attempt to get the pressure off himself (although the pressure seemed to be dying down at that point).

It was over-the-top and defensive, but that demonstrates how much I hated how that whole "driving discussion away" from hypo-claiming scum narrative.

Would you not agree my persistent (and emotional) stand to not engage discussion about my page 1 question would actually do the opposite of 'get the pressure off himself' (as it was the very thing that pinged many players). I could have just talked about hypo-claiming and the setup for the first 10 pages and not stirred up any bad attention.

Don't post this then run away for another 48 hours.

What are you doing? Offer up some thoughts/reads...

Do you realise you will be lynched leaving it this late?

In post 398, the worst wrote:how do you feel about our leading wagons of volxen and sesq? any townreads?

I'm ok with a volxen lynch, sesq preferably not as I haven't seen anything yet there that feels scum to me. I'm leaning town on Irrelephant and Reundo. Undecided about the rest so far.

Need to double-check but I think volxen is L-1 now.

Why was the fact that Reundo joined in the conversation in his first post such a problem for you? You asked him a couple of questions which seemed reasonable enough, then after realising it had been his first post you voted him - for that? Before he had a chance to answer you.

Why did him not having "charged feelings", after just two pages, frustrate/intrigue you? Why did his second post seem "lazy" to you?

And no; if you'd just talked about hypo-claiming and the setup for the first 10 pages you would definitely have attracted attention.

Anyone else around?

@Huntress, what would you say if I told you scummy word choices were a reason to townread Keyser?

i mean, there 4 posts dont really have much to read off, tbh id read them more off the flips.

If volxen is town then i might look at them/sesq a bit more, but if Volxen is mafia i think huntress is going to be quite towny.
i know bussing is a possibility, but how easy is it to just come in, state intent to hammer, and vote sesq?
Instead, they came into the thread, gave a few starting reads, then said they dont want a sesq lynch and voted Keyzer.
then said they're fine with volxen, but preferably not sesq, so more defending sesq, who was at (L-1 was it?) and a few more reads.

so if i had to make a read right now i think id give them a town lean for their posts

In that moment I thought it was scum-Reundo trying to dig up something I felt was non-alignment indicative. I concluded it was an awkward/weird angle to come into the game as town, hence the quick vote.

In post 414, Huntress wrote:Why did him not having "charged feelings", after just two pages, frustrate/intrigue you? Why did his second post seem "lazy" to you?

RE: "charged feelings", as I said earlier I was paranoid he was scum finding it hard to chew on anything meaningful, and instead chose to nibble on fluff: open game/hypo-claiming/scum day chat.
RE: lazy, just the way he was equating defensiveness = scummy.

In post 414, Huntress wrote:And no; if you'd just talked about hypo-claiming and the setup for the first 10 pages you would definitely have attracted attention.

Well.. maybe 10 pages was bit of an exaggeration (but it did linger too long for my own liking), but if I was scum I would have definitely been more passive and helpful to deflect votes/attention from myself.


In the end, I realised I was the person to blame for all this fluff/mess, so those scum-feels slowly faded. Reundo has since then been sharing thoughts I too share, so he has redeemed himself IMO, and is no longer a threat but a teammate.
