We've spoken about it a fair bit and have made the decision not to focus on signing. We expect quite a bit of clutter because of all the hydras, so we're synchronising our reads as much as possible before posting & collaboratively writing the majority of our posts.

If we did sign we'd be signing most of them jointly anyway - we don't intend to go against everyone's wishes wrt not signing but we're intending to play this game as "one voice" so as to make signing mostly redundant. Hopefully that's something everyone is prepared to respect.

(also as an obvious-tw aside: starcraft round 1 should prove neither of these heads are tonereadable :lol:)

We're doing this because we think two players posting independently under the same slot harms the ability to scumhunt. We're avoiding any sort of schizophrenic posturing, hydra dissonance, disorganized/contradictory noise, which means you can treat us as if we aren't a hydra. This will make things easier for those who dislike or struggle with sorting hydras.

Stretch your minds a bit, break out the "hydra theory" box you're in, and maybe you'll realize that we're doing this for the town's benefit? We'd never limit ourselves like this as scum (before the game we discussed different ways we could abuse hydra mechanic if we were scum and this wasn't it).

Discussing this instead of the game is giving me bad vibes on Varsoon. I get that it matters but it's clogging the thread. We should drop it and let the mod rules about signing kick in.

Final Followup Fun Fact:
I Fucking love alliteration :)

Oof! I was quadruple ninjad! Dayum.


Ari no, I disagree, Varsoon is right. Does it necessarily make them scum? No but this isn’t your old site and they know that here and they are digging in thier heels despite strong opposition. That isn’t sitting right with me.

This is an example of the behavior we're avoiding. Yes, we're a fictive person, but that doesn't mean we're incapable of playing together as one.

That's a bad use of meta. There's nothing inherently scummy about that phrase. It just means "break out the box you're in," or "challenge your way of thinking," which are phrases I've definitely used before as town (e.g. in Laybrinth when discussing your reads).

For some background, I say "stretch your mind" quite often in my yoga teaching to shift how people relate to their mind/body during a practice. It's just a part of how I speak in real life contexts. I'd never thought to use it in the context of mafia until Starcraft 1 because I don't usually use the phrase in an intellectual context.

I was very happy with how it applied in Starcraft 1 and I couldn't even contain my excitement when Varsoon picked the phrase up. Yes, it's such a great phrase that even Varsoon (who doesn't seem to like me much) used the phrase himself in Starcraft 1, as TOWN. Point being, it has nothing to do with alignment. It's just a phrase with a useful meaning in the context of a mafia game. I intend to use it a lot more.

@nancy you should feel bad for nearly every post you've made. Literally. You're peddling nonsense.
@harpoon your ISO has become such a farce I'm losing my rvs townread on you. get back to fucking playing.

we're 7 pages in and the only person not circularly shitposting about misunderstanding out hydra dynamic seems to be Taly, who is instead making nonsense reads which I like for scum. is anybody else town this game? probably. why the fuck are town wasting so much time on game theory related nonsense which is not going to catch scum? this is a decision we made post-game. if you don't like it push us for it but embrace the fact you're pushing a POLICY LYNCH and when people re-read this nonsense after we flip you're going to look exactly as stupid as you're beiny. given the strength of this list I'm surprised how much stupid bullshit you're all entertaining rather than actually playing mafia.

can anyone even give me reads on slots other than ours? jfc

I'm not negotiating. I am telling you, if you're town you need to start reconsidering the way you approach this kind of situation.
When I'm less annoyed I will be looking for players who are actually trying to sort the game.

Why are you hyperfocusing on our hydra dynamic when it is a pregame decision and there are fourteen other slots?

can i take these to be scum reads?

sadly not. we are nulltown on Varsoon but are also considering just ignoring him until he removes his trousers from his head. Ari has also been towny and I am not sure getting preoccupied by this bullshit is scum indicative for Nancy.

take it as my "slap yourself upside the head" reads.

I'm not going to re-assess because the last time that you used a combination of 'stretch your mind', emotional rhetoric, and this kind of browbeating to force me to reassess an early scumread on you, you were third party anti-town.
So, nope.
Not going to happen.

yes and we were both universally townread there
=> the stuff you are describing is the towngame or Shoshin, independently.

using a phrase she used ?once? maybe twice? in a single scumgame which she uses irl as a reliable scumtell is a trainwreck and uou should know that. Nancy will be able to testify to TPFKAP's "witch hunt" tell. that is only reliable because that player has used it across enough games it's obviously a subconscious wording choice.

I think either :-
1) you are genuinely tunnelled on this (there's guaranteed to be at least one towny who is). I can't allow that to continue and I need you to realise its objectively incorrect sooner or later. or,
2) you are scum looking for nonsense to yell about in the thread so people go "ah ok guess this is town-ragespam-Varsoon, better let that go!". don't forget the mainscum team didn't townread you until you conftowned yourself, via your claim that they were informed was aligned with the town. we know that you can lay down a farcical version of your town meta as scum. we can't allow this either.

so move on or give us something we can react to.

Varsoon we've been sorting and moving the game more than you. When people stop hyperventilating about out hydra decision, we will look townier than you. We don't need the towncred of explaining our Taly read preemptively. taly is the kind of player capable of writing in a narrative driven fashion which means if we alert him to what were looking at/for too early, we'll lose what momentum we do have.


So, no. I am not going to bow down to your browbeating overbearing tactics. Disagreeing with us here is only beneficial for Taly, in that he'll be harder to catch if he is indeed scum. If you heavily disagree, explain why he's town. You are going to need the towncred more than us.

No like literally we have a read and we're going to see how well the trajectory of Taly's iso backs up or conflicts with our position. you just admitted you're being intentionally close minded about reading our slot and reconsidering your read on our scumread in 180 so I'm not sure why I would bother casing him out for you while you're raging anyway?

want to talk about any other slots? or

Okay you're not pressuring out slot. You're pushing it for a lynch. Saying we're scum for a progressive hydra dynamic is scum motivated at worst & close-mindedness at best. so we're not really able to react to that pressure any way regardless of alignment I don't think.

Engaging with us on slots is a much better idea. I did just explain why talking about Taly is a bad idea if he IS scum so I'm not sure where to go next. I guess we can leave each other's personal space for 24 hours or something?

Hol up
Why you signing as your hydra mate Shoshin?
The only time I’ve considered THAT trick was as scum in a hydra with NM, and while part of the plan there was just to be silly, there was also intent to confuse posting times with it. So there’s tangible scum advantage to signing as the wrong head.
-Emerald Star


Gamma what do you think we gain as scum here by maliciously signing posts incorrectly when they're really obviously incorrectly singed?

We've done it twice so far. I think. After explaining with no ambiguity that we weren't interested in signing.

I'm really interested to see why you think there's scum intent, and what makes you think we're doing it as a scum tactic.

(A 1v1, an L-1'd wagon that spawned from RVS initially, etc.)

By the way, can you explain your lynch pool Almost?


What part of our not actually voting them, did you miss?


So you've been posting in this game all this time and haven't conjured a strong scumread or townread, or are even pushing to acquire one?

The fact that you spent multiple posts debating with STW and disagreeing with Ari on how to handle their "not signing" thing while you don't place or vote or do anything else doesn't ring to me as town-motivated.

Do you have reads aside from Vars and STW?

I don’t like this post. You have no basis to sr us and you formulating this like this is somehow obvious to anyone other than lobotomised individuals, is really scummy af.


Yeah, I do have a REASON to suspect you/ari as scum. For the amount of posting both of you have done, there's very little content.

You keep putting up the defense of "you're being really scummy" and "why scumread us" but you're not actually entertaining why, aside from painting my posts toward you as pro-scum.

Hell, it took a LITTLE post of me pushing for responses on your slot, and your next posts are to disregard any content I've had with multiple people in the game, and minimize any thought I have over you.

The fact that you don't put up a vote and just continue to 'mildly entertain' my wagon in , doesn't read as genuine.

And if you're going to make the bullshit argument that I'm posturing, then why not evaluate the TvT between STW and Vars that I concluded from my own reads? You're making multiple accusations without really looking anything deeper than a centimeter into my posts.

I'm flattered you guys think I'm this good as scum... but I think you guys underestimate my perceptiveness as town. :P

But this reinforces my point above. You both are using meta-logic to explain an early read on me, on how I make consistent narratives as scum.

Yet the only focal point I've made are two stances that I gathered through a 1v1 between you and Varsoon, which I townread both of you on. There's no motivation or means I could get towncred by posturing myself around your potential lynch if nobody is even entertaining my train of thought.
Two interessting points.
One is that I don't think you are outside your scungame yet, so I'll be keeping you in mind as the game progresses.
Second is the TvT read of S&W and Var. Can you explain the last line of this quote to me please?


I'm saying, the only major even I've responded to in this game so far, is STW/Vars when they were 1v1ing, and I concluded they were both town off my own reasons.

:igmeou: And what are you talking about Ari? You've never played with me as scum to my memory.

And also, why is "Taly's not outside of his scumgame" a reason to not try and view town-motivation in my posts?

Reasonable... and ineffective. :roll:


...I really want STW to jump into the thread and explain their read on me AND reply to my spoiler to them, because at the moment, I can't find a town-motivated reason for anyone else to push a scumread on me UNLESS they actually give THEIR OWN opinion. :igmeou:


Parsing your spoilered post then discussing then getting back to you is going to take time taly. Just keep doing what you're doing and we will get back to you.

Scum me these days gets nervous and avoids posting, especially if someone like Gamma or RC who I know can read me well is present. As it’s been said to me before there’s a certain thoughtfulness in my Town posting that my scumgame lacks. My Townread on Ari is a good example of that.


Nice, we had an almost identical conversation about that post. At first we weren't entirely sure how to parse it (the reasoning was a bit abstract compared to the more commonplace meta townclears) but the more we spoke about it the more we started to think there's probably no reason to make that post at all, as scum. The timing was also nice.

One of our heads has a habit of tunnelling experienced players who haven't played for a while but you still came out as "probably town".

@URAP2 it is alarming me that you're reading slots by whether or not they look scummy at face value, rather than the kind of sorting I'm used to enjoying from you. wrt newbie 1905/07 you made a major conscious effort to get inside people's heads which I feel like you're a step or two withdrawn from here. That case on Mephisto this page boils down to "they've got good optics so they're probably town but I might be wrong" -- this presents more like a mislynch mindset than a sorting mindset. :<

For what it's worth, I feel Nancy and Ari are fairly obviously town. In addition to the optics of taking different sides on arguments etc., don't forget that they've been so actively engaged in the thread and to me, at least, nothing they've done feels pre-planned. I know this dips into meta territory but I don't think either of them has the scumrange to float through the thread this smoothly. And I don't think what they've done is pre-planned. I think while I was reading your case I was waiting for something more decisive, something with meaning.

Hold on a tick.

The last two lines are funny in the context of the thread. I wouldn't put it past a scum to make that comment pretending not to have caught up as a troll

I have no idea what is record is of reading you, so I can't really evaluate that claim or his motivation for asking you to sign.

he's not playing any other games so I'm willing to believe he's disengaged, although his rvs post did seem excited to play (and why not?)

Are you seeing something here? because I'm having trouble getting much of consequence.

With respect to the bolded/pink this was a strange conclusion to jump to. You've seen pintu's scumgame. He's pretty capable of pocketing the duck head of this hydra like, without even meaning to. He's also pretty smooth as scum.

Do you really think there's a decent chance that scum!pintu has sneakily read the thread, sat there and thought about it, and decided to irritate and exposed slot including the duck who he's good at pocketing by making this post, rather than just going in for a softpocket?

Given his scumstyle and the smooth way he presents himself, do you think it would occur to scum!pintu AT ALL to make this post? I feel like its potentially not outside his scumrange, but it'd be a fairly strange evolution of his scumrange.

(for the record I know I'm not equipped to convincingly towncase pintu yet - but I think the missing level of reasoning from you here might be scum indicative).

Mephisto may be a demon but they are town.
- Ari's unrestrained defence of our hydra dynamic is town motivated & I fail to see a scum motivation in it.
- he's the more frozen head as scum by some margin and he's been the one reacting to posts in real-time
- Nancy has reads and has reacted to certain things in the thread (e.g. us vs. Varsoon!) which I don't think she'd be able to easily weigh in on as scum.
- I do not think Nancy antagonises us by reading us incorrectly so soon after 6p in Starcraft Mafia.

There's a tonne of tiny reasons to complement this but overall, I'm having a really hard time seeing scum motivation in that slot's actions at all. The fact they continuously townpost adds to this. :P

I'm also not really sure why you scumread/dont townread Alchemist, and I'm not sure why you're voteparking Kokichi given the more active slots here don't feel sorted yet. If it comes close to deadline I think Kokichi is an excellent contender for a policy lynch, but we have time to do more spicy stuff.

Okay, good. I thought I had missed something obvious. With respect, I think you're off on this one, mate.

So, I DO think scum!pintu likely tries to pocket town!tw this game, but I don't think this post precludes it. Pintu the person is a smart guy with a sense of humor and a bit of flair so I think it is possible that he would find this sort of light trolling amusing, regardless of alignment, but especially as scum.

Further, what about this post has stopped scum!pintu from being able to pocket you? You don't seem to be scum reading pintu, so I'm not sure why this would be a concern of his. I mean, he unvotes you in the same post.

Lastly, he was posting a "im here will catchup" post that he didn't end up keeping. If this is scum!pintu, and he wasn't intending to catch up last night, then the second half of the post might have been his attempt to send town back into a fruitless discussion for a hot minute while he wastes time.

Whatcha think?


Definitely doesn't preclude it but I still don't see why you just assume that post comes from scum before it comes from town. There ie indeed a great bit catchup cooling off ITT which I don't think you've addressed yet.

I agree pintu isn't locktown from that post but this feels like you're trying to fit the post around pintu being scum, rather than trying to parse the post a few levels down and glean his alignment from it.

I'm not saying you're guaranteed to be wrong, I'm just finding the mindset behind achieving that read concerning.

In response to your concerns, Varsoon:

1. the worst addressed the "stretch your mind" phrase in . The "no meta" post wasn't a defense to that.

2. the worst has a long history of holding back his reasoning on reads until much later in the game (e.g. in Labyrinth where he gave a read on D1, then refused to explain that read until somewhere around D4), and I often hold back reasoning as well for shorter stretches of time to test reactions. In Taly's case, we've discussed his behavior/meta extensively in our hydra PM and promise everything will be explained before end of D1.

3. We disagree with you about "mafia theory" when it comes to playing hydras. Given our previous experiences disagreeing when we were both town, you shouldn't scumread us for disagreement. We understand that you want to treat us as two separate players who are playing under one slot, but we're not playing as separate players so your desire to treat us as separate isn't possible. We're playing as one player. Given your lack of complaint about others who play as one player (most of the playerlist), we don't think that should be an issue.

4. The fact that we're playing our hydra in this way is actually a town tell for us because if we had received a scum PM we would have used every scummy tool at our disposal, including extensive hydra dissonance, cluttering the thread with disorganized back-and-forth arguments with each other that served no purpose other than drowning out meaningful posting, as well as other scummy tactics that hydra mechanics make possible. As you should know by now, neither of us would ever limit ourselves in this way as scum. Especially me (Shoshin). I don't have a hydra meta so limiting myself like this in my first game as a hydra isn't something I'd do as scum.

We hope you come to townread us because we don't think it's going to be helpful for you to push our lynch all game. At the very least, you should give us an opportunity to find and lynch the scum before declaring us scummy.

Just in case that dayvig is real, because Vars' play here is so tacky it could be either.

{STW}
{Nancy}
{Michael, Varsoon, Alchemist}
{AlmostChara, ProFlavor}
{Nico, Mewtaph, tibor and lumia, Kokichi}
{pinturicchio, URAP2}

Michael is probably teetering on dropping a tier from this conversation. But I'm not sure on this yet.

This game is horrible to sort. I think there's probably one scum in pint/urap2 but haven't got around to completely parsing it yet. I don't feel confident on Michael/Vars town but I do feel slightly more confident on Alch town. AC/PF wouldn't surprise me if they flipped scum I just think its marginally less likely than those below.

Too many people not doing much. Too much focus on a handful of slots.

C'mon, if you're aware of said towntells, it's clearly in your capability to make them as scum, too. More WIFOM.

A couple of things.

Firstly have you ever posted something then just gone "oh fuck that was towny where did that come from"? That's like, the only time I towntell holistically. Sometimes when I have a thought then explain it ITT it evolves into something I didn't expect it to before I started typing. I think this is something probably f>t type people probably do instinctively I guess but it's not something I'm all thwt capable of doing as scum. (I can real-time as scum just fine but I'm a lot less interesting)

Secondly, I'm not making the point that we should be obvious town at all. In fact paranoia following scm1 is pretty healthy for most slots here (there are some I'm expecting to see a difference right away - Nancy is a classic example). But Varsoon could be PBPAing our entire iso and just saying "wolfy" next to every post. It's reaching the point where his lack of reconsideration and 3 dimensional thinking is making me regret townreading him originally.

Again, this is not WIFOM. Cut the buzzword spam and talk me through what you think is scum indicative. Buzzwords are GREAT for catching 10 year olds out on lying but their scope when you use them as "this sentence is _____" without elaboration is incredibly limited.

because if it is real and you are town, I don't want to be hanged on the last read of Shoshin alone

Actually our hydra dynamic applies strongly to this. It's something we discussed for a while yesterday and concluded with "Varsoon looks like town but he looks like he wants to be townread. Not really sure where to go with this."

Sure, going "Oh that was Towny where did that come from?" Is a legitimate feeling to have, but doesn't pair off with "I towntold a bunch of times" -- the latter portrays an awareness to the tells. I don't trust that it's beyond your capability to know how town!you would behave and then behave in a similar fashion. Also, you're exaggerating how ridiculous it is to make those moves as scum - for example, I've already pointed out benefits to non-signing as scum.

Selfmeta is hard to do as scum. It's also a playstyle type thing so I'm not gonna tunnel it. But you can't expect town!tw to loltownread you when we have respect for the calibre of your game and are seeing scumtells in your ISO which we've explained.

This is a very weird standard to hold someone too and it's utterly invalidated by the fact you can't back it up with anything concrete.

in this list I could confidently pocket Taly, Nancy and you. I could give it a go with pintu but I'm not sure it'd get me anywhere. I used to be able to pocket brass but posthiatus I'm not sure how he'd take it. So I think me scumreading you and not cutely backing down when you started posting is not remotely a scumtell.

I don't understand why you think there's no town motivation in our slot pushing/scumreading you. It's pretty simple. We scumread you.
The fact you can't engage with me about why we shouldn't scumread you or should townread you had me baffled.

Imagine in newbie 1907 for example if you and Nauci had fleshed out why you were misreading each other day two. think about how that kind of conversation might play out as an example.

sorry there's few ways to illustrate my point effectively here

I was looking for some stuff in this game which I should townread. Sorry if this felt like a breakthrough but I'm not sure how to see anything AI in the BoP argument. It might be slightly towny because of the disconnect maybe? But then scum who are caught for the wrong reason often react the same way. So I'm quite net null on it :(

I believe that there can be a town motivation for scumreading me. I didn't say town!you town!reads me 100%

We can post game why I'm not into reading myself in the thread. It basically boils down to the wifom/not wifom discussion you're in the middle of and my having no interest in having those types of discussions

The problem we're having here is that you kicked off this rabbit hole discussion by voting us because you believe town!tw should be townreading you, plus the hydra dynamic which for the umpteenth time should not be deemed alignment indicative.

I'm trying to parse how you came to the conclusion that it's scum indicative for us to be scumreading you and pushing you just because the worst and you have history. I still do not understand your rationale here.

If you think TW should >rand be townreading you, we definitely need a better metric against which to measure your towntells, because it means what we are doing at the moment is on the wrong track.

This conversation is pretty important. If you do need to back out of it for holistic playstyle/meta reasons we understand but also please try to see that from our perspective, that leaves you joining out wagon late into its formation for almost exactly no reason...

@Varsoon, I have a towntell on the duck, on the same line of your "stretch your minds" of Shoshin. I've seen the duck using the "holistical reads" as town before and can't recall him doing it as scum.

By the way @duck, why scumreading us? Felt like it came out of nowhere.

-Pin

We originally had you as maybe-town for a couple of reasons. Your catchup felt rhetoric-heavy, and your conversation with URAP2 didn't feel natural (unsure on who's part, or whether both, yet). If you are town I'm sure we'll see it.

Whatever. How about talking to me about Taly?

I'm starting to get this feeling that he came into the thread, made that play to get town cred, and is now coasting on that

Taly could go either way - we need to have a proper conversation about him and mesh our thoughts before we're going to get anywhere productive.

@URAP2
We slightly townread ProFlavor but it's largely meta related and quite a weak townread. I think him joining us on you is slightly town indicative but only in a vacuum that it's the kind of thing profii does without paying attention to the gamestate (he followed his scumread onto another scumread). I'd also probably expect a little bit more from Flavour as scum here. He doesn't carry the energy he usually puts into scumming.

Chara is creeping up our list but it's also the first townread we are wrong on (outside of need to sort Varsoon). Its scumgame is pretty good and I think pocketing us at the time it questioned Varsoon on his read of us would be genuinely perfect timing. For the mort part though that slot is town, outside of paranoia.

Alchemist we're currently fairly strongly town on, I think we have spoken about this.

He was still hunting for scum that game. Aggressively, and he did a good job. He did not have TMI. You're suggesting we have TMI on your slot and are choosing to misrepresent it as a scumspect. Those are two extremely different situations. I'm not sure what your point is here unless you think we're a serial killer.

I'm not scared of engaging you, I just know that the worst uses that excuse on me when he rolls scum. There is no reason to engage when he's claiming he's "worried because I'm null" because that is a scum tell.

Making an effort & being careful with reading you is a scumtell?

So in SUPP2017 mafia the worst was effectively strong-armed into pretending to townread you because of your meta together. Shoshin and a few others heavily scumread your slot, and TW was put into a situation where they were forced to rescind their townread as "made too soon"--but only as a XyLo reconsideration of the read. That's it. That's how groupscum TW has most recently read your slot.

In Project Pinecone, he was a serial killer going up against the town and a 4 man scumteam. He didn't fake not being able to read you properly, because he didn't need to. It was his job to eliminate the scumteam just as much as it www the town's. Please appreciate that a self-aligned third party's approach to hunting the scumteam is far closer to a townie's, than to groupscum's.

The only read he manipulated there was lying about reconsidering obvscum dramonic on day one. There is no benefit in lying about nullreading you as a serial killer.

Tl;dr: if we were scum, we have no issues faking a read on your slot and no reason not to fake a read on your slot.

All the same you're almost certainly not s/s with Varsoon I think.

I vote nullreads to get them to react so I can try to get a better read on them. If that's not a town action I'm probably scum irl.

And jumping on nullreads so they start towntelling or... not towntelling.... is a brilliant way to proceed if you don't have many reads. How would you propose handling nullreads if not pressuring them?

Ultimately there's two factions. Scum and town. There isn't a null faction, so having nullreads instantly compromises the integrity of a readlist.

I think it's a quirk I'm developing these days.

His immediate "ok lol well you're vigged and probably scum and here's why so I'm gonna lynch someone else" was towny as hell especially from him. I also don't think that comment wrt TW misreading him which is completely inconsistent with play history comes from scum who's scheming our mislynch.

that's literally untrue that it's a soft. After last game I'm pretty confident Kokichi is just shitposting. He fakeclaims shit all the fucking time. Why are you assuming this is such an elaborate TPR soft and why do you need to be so antitown as to out it?

You also just slipped not vigilante FTR so at least we can stop pretending that fucking joke is a thing.

AITP mindset works here too. Even if I suspected he was an innocent child, I should NEVER avoid pushing him simply on the basis that he's TPR slipped. All that does is alert the scumteam to the fact I suspect/know something about him.

I very much doubt this post comes from someone who is actually the town vigilante. It's a joke you just assume Kokichi is an IC because of an obvious joke post and that I'm scum for applying pressure to him.

You entered the thread pretending to scumread us and where have you ended up? 28 pages of us aggressively trying to solve this game later? Still scumreading us and doing virtually nothing else.

If this is how badly your towngame has deteriorated since SCM1 where you had the bad meta reads on Shoshin town to rights day one, I'll be in fucking awe.

Just fucking do something else other than derptunnelling us and trying to horse shit reaction tests and setup-gaming. Regardless of your alignment this phase so far has been shit tier in a way I've never seen you be before.

Your dayvig fakeclaim is a joke. If you keep this fakeclaim up you'll be policy vigged which will be a relief.

Apology noted--if this is a t/t I'll come back to you later on when I'm more calm.
It's just incredibly insulting that you're tunnelling us at the expense of common sense, have absolutely zero read trajectory and are just ignoring everything ITT which doesn't coincide with your gamestate read of "STW IS SCUM AND FUCK EVERYTHING ELSE". The reason I'm tearing my hair out here is because you're so hyperfocused you're starting to look like a joke. I personally am massively struggling to take you seriously and was considering just PoEing the game around you or suggesting a policy lynch.

For the hundred billionth time, we are not ready to explain our taly read yet. I'm sorry if this is genuinely so vexing to you that it's paralysing you from doing anything else. But we're not gonna compromise our chance to sort the slot.

Would you mind tiering your townreads Almost? Or talk to me about the ones you can't see yourself EVER voting for the foreseeable future?
I know this will be more annoying than I intend it to be but it is what it is. It's just a little tricky reading into "i have 11 slots as town, let's lynch in the other 4 (who are all lurkers". I don't hate your PoE tbh, I'm just curious to see where your brain is at.

We really don't believe in reading people via bop at all. Categorically.

I was looking for some stuff in this game which I should townread. Sorry if this felt like a breakthrough but I'm not sure how to see anything AI in the BoP argument. It might be slightly towny because of the disconnect maybe? But then scum who are caught for the wrong reason often react the same way. So I'm quite net null on it :(


Can you please explain BoP, thanks. And yes, I know it stands for burden of proficiency but I don’t know what that means?

Burden of proficiency.
Basically, the idea that "because Player X isn't proficient, they must be scum". For example, saying "because Nancy mislynched scum and had bad reads she must be scum". It's a nonsensical argument.

Here URAP2 is suggesting I'm BoPing him because I'm saying "because you didn't have the same read as us on a lurker post, you must be scum".

They are scum reading one person for lurking, me for voting a lurker, and T&L because they always town read them early, as far as I can recall.

They also have a bunch of naked town reads. Currently trying to engage that slot, but I don't have any reason to town read them

I'm still reading almost chara as town. They had that lynch pool early and I could understand the worldview they were living in to have that pool. Since then they have not stood out much to me, which means nothing pinged me.

Alchemist, I am currently sheeping a town read on. He's on the list to dig into. I'm sure you can see that I've been slowly hopping from one slot to the next


Agree on AC and Alchemist21.

Your posting in here, kind of lowkey reminds me of Mewtaph in SC 1 for some reason.

I'm making the point that casually shading it as "scummy" is nonsense.
Anything directed at TW will be answered the same as if he were a solo slot.
Don't understand what's confusing about this.


How is AC shading this as “scummy”?

All they’re doing is reiterating what everyone has been thinking the entire game, which is that your hydra dynamics are confusing af.

AC didn't shade it as scummy - we didn't use pronouns but we were referring to URAP2 shading it as scummy, not AC.

3. Mewtaph ???
4. u r a person 2 hey, that's me
5. AlmostChara (Almost50 + Chara Hydra) town

7. pinturucchio town
8. nicorobin ???
9. ProFlavor (Flavor Leaf and profii hydra) ???
10. Kokichi Oma ???
11. Tibor and Lumia (brassherald and Gamma Emerald hydra) town
12. alchemist21 town
13. Taly town
14. Varsoon town

Your read list is like a lot of town reads and question marks on the lurkier slots

I did a similar read list and got similar results in my hydra PT

So when STW said this game is hard to read I kinda town read that - because for this reason, it kinda is


I’m in the same boat. Everyone is either Towny or null.

Seriously the thread needs to focus on someone else. The amount of bias here is making it excruciating to read.

Posts like ProFlavor's last one SHOULD come >rand from scum because of how conspicuously weighted they are. Taly's magical read reversal on us because we took a break from pushing the thread momentum for a few pages and others stated they still didn't like us should come >rand from scum. But everyone is so full of it I'm not really sure how I'm meant to be reading them.

Most of the active players are town. somewhere in {pintu, ProFlavor, Taly} is as deep as the deepwolves go. If Varsoon's vig isn't proven eventually, powerlynch him.

I'm getting tired of not being treated like a human and there's a weird clique of players who are just positioning as scum for nonsensical reasons, without actually thinking through anything (more likely to come from scum!ProFlavor than scum!Varsoon rn imo). my WIM is through the floor so I'm probably gonna be more low energy and less obvtown than I was a few pages ago.

RVS is bullshit but square up w me, both heads now

~ Taly

Taly's RVS post is what originally scumpinged me.
I don't think he's really done anything outside his scumrange (not anything particularly towny). Taly do you disagree? If I'm grossly misreading you here, help me see where I'm wrong. A lot your defence of yourself & probing of other slots has kind of skated around the centre; the way you do as scum (e.g. PYPX/Y).

> the pocketed comment & the thing wrt rereading playerlist movement just feels forced and stiff. I think there's a hesitation in Taly's tonality through the thread, so far, which I can't not notice.
> the comment about not feeling Kokichi's IC claim but townvibing it is absolutely bizarre. I can see this coming from someone who played SCM1 and liked the laissez-faire comedic entry to the thread but I literally can't see any reason to be townpinged by Kokichi lolclaiming IC and then lurking it out. This doesn't feel like critical reading so much as an agenda/TMI'd read and I think it's the kind of slip-up scum do make while still in RVS.
> RVS bullshit thing is incredibly forced (fwiw voting AC in rvs doesn't seem beneficial to me but I feel like I'm the only person onsite who enjoys RVS for content)

I'm going to get myself in a tunnel but here is how I'm reading this:

There is a tunnel on STW and a large proportion of players are saying the gamestate is full of towny dudes - so there is no where for a counter wagon to form - therefore "should we wait for nullslots to do something" could equal "can we wait for the nullslots to do something scummy to take heat off me, as yet, there is no where for people to create a sensible wagon and I'm in a bit of a pickle"


FL said he will catch up soon so I'm just going to let that happen before I go as far as voting/diving down this tunnel, otherwise I would have already.

~ woof



^^^ basically, this post is an incredibly heavily biased reading (which i think you know) but i'm kinda not sure whether to take it down as confirmation bias at face value or see an EvIl AgEnDa in it
similar kinda thing to taly's comment about reversing his read on us, but i think his was slightly more scum indicative
basically the bias is just muddying my ability to improve my reads on people right now. i think i just need more content from your slot which isn't about me

I don't like that this sort of WIFOM was dropped earlier and you're reversing it here--can't remember who, but someone suggested that the pressure on you was shifted to Nico. I generally think that's more likely to be true than the other way around. Your suggestion pretty much is just that Nico is buddies with... who?

I'm curious to know, on if you're trying to solve me genuinely, or if you're just withholding your responses about me for when you CAN actively case a lynch against me if I survive later in the game.

You've told me to "play the game" and "wait for your response" and yet you're just now acknowledging posts I've made where I haven't mentioned you.

I have absolutely no idea where you're going with this except I get the feeling you aren't enjoying our playstyle? It kinda feels like a beginning and a middle with no end. What do you actually make of all this?

You don't need to be positioned as a lategame lynch and doing that by gently poking you day one would be ridiculous. If we were scum actually gunning for your mislynch why would we alert you to it and force you to produce more alignment indicative content day one? This isn't the conclusion I don't think so talk to me more here.


In post 1018, Taly wrote:Yes, you're misled. If you actually read me post in 193, you'd have known that ANY post I made in the game before 132 were reaction tests.

And yeah, I'm playing OVERTLY "scummy" right now. (Ugh, that word sucks so much.)

If "playing how I am as scum" gets people to have reads OTHER than town/null and AVOIDS a potential lurker mislynch on D1, then fuck... Mission accomplished.

Apathy defeated. (Or at least mine is.) 1v1s don't go for +10 pages. Weakens a scum-productive narrative.


If you're playing overly scummy what's your angle? Where were you going with the reaction tests & what did you glean? This is the kind of reasoning wolves use when they have a rocky start to day one so I can't afford to take that at face value. Let's go 3 levels deeper in this conversation.

The last two paragraphs don't make sense to me and I don't ?think? they're alignment indicative to I'm gonna focus on the more interesting parts of this...


In post 1018, Taly wrote:Let's talk about "posturing/positioning" for a second.

How about the next time you quote me, you DIRECTLY respond to me? OK?


Lol.
This is the towniest thing in your post but I'm still not convinced it comes exclusively from town!you. Your emotional range is a lot broader as town. Your semantic/nitpicking as either alignment is strong. I'm struggling to see a lot here past semantics.

Given TW head has seen you as both powertown, powerwolf, and pocketed you as a scum - what makes you think you're entitled to a townread from us? Help us see it?

Alchemist21 - Actually want Mew to explain his scumread on Alchemist, it's the only one they've had it seems? In like... 1000 posts?

Pint - A reason to townread T&L as I'm feeling less impressed each time I read Pint's ISO or latest posts.

Kokichi - AC, is this really a worthy lynch? Any active posters you don't townread?


This is valid tbh
I'll be interested to revisit this vca

we still have like half a week so I'm OK pressuring where I am. Still want to hear about scum!Alchemist because neither of us are seeing it.

Kokichi is likely the most valid lurker lynch because he's blatantly playing in bad faith. But I'm fine pressuring where we are and if NR eats the lynch I don't think I'll be sad.

I don't know what you're achieving here as town, either, that's why my read has partially faded.

We aren't meta reading you more than content reading you? I don't know where this came from. We're just proceeding with appropriate levels of caution given your scumrange.

If you think we're on the wrong track, point us in the right direction. Because atm you're just evading valuable conversations while yelling at us to read posts which we've already read and didn't townread.

I heard that the lurk-meta on Nico indicates scum there but I don't really know if that's true or not.

For what it's worth.

Why do you feel the need to specifically ask for justification from people pressurevoting that slot? It's not a vanity wagon. It's a valid pressure wagon on a lurker.

Why do you think there's scum on it?

I misread your comment about URAP2/pint interactions so don't worry about the URAP2 thing.
Given we have quite a lot of players who are active and producing content (and a lot who appear to be town!) lynching a lurker d1 doesn't feel like a bad idea in practice. It removes an unreadable slot from the game, keeps the NK pool open. I don't think any of the votes on Nico so far have been unfair/scum indicative and I don't think you really addressed that point.

Shading the wagon to soft-defend her is a very easy position for scum to take, and pointing at site "lynching lurkers is bad!!" meta to back it up is a pretty cheap out, and I don't think it comes from a place of trying to actually stay focused on reading slots and solving this game. :/

I'm not surprised you feel the last two pages have been wasted. It doesn't feel like we actually engaged on anything, and I've come out of it feeling pretty brushed aside.

If Nico is town here, that looks good for Taly and vice-versa.

So even if Nico is scum - Taly has been hard against the Nico wagon because the flip doesn’t give us info

I’ve seen scum get lynched and people be against the wagon and sometimes the defender flips scum, sometimes town - so I’m making a mental note that talys issue with the wagon is specifically info gained, rather than “I don’t want to lynch Nico because i find ___ element of her play towny”

Idk what that means it just stood out

~ woof

This is a good take. You don't have any thoughts about whether Taly looks s/s with Nico, or like town flailing to defend a lurker wagon?

if Kokichi just genuinely doesn't follow through on catching up he's obviously a fierce contender. I see nothing to townread from either of them but his catchup promise over just a naked vote is closer to playing in good faith than Nico's lurking/naked vote/complaining thing.

Why are you so content on lynching Nico if your vote there is pressure? Do you strongly scumread them?

Because we have a PoE, lynching her is no loss to the gamestate and she's prodging to remain in the game. Even if it greens its bad faith play which only damages gamestate. We lose nothing by lynching her and flip and unreadable slot who we do not townread.

If you think this is a fair representation of our play this game you're the one who isn't reading the thread.. xD

Yeah, it's alarming that you're white knighting a lynch on a bad faithy lurker slot in a game with a firm PoE. I don't know what you expect to catch scum here?

You are so aggressively not playing this it's insulting that you're alleging to be confirmable town. This kind of play is damaging to site culture.

Those of you that played Overkill 2 may recall FL admitting either in PT or post game (can’t fully remember) he purposely acted as disengaged to move along to the later stages of the game

Arguably - that’s more Koki, as opposed to Nico simply not being here

So I’ll be keeping an eye on those pushing Nico


I’m gonna go read up on some slots that I haven’t really noticed up to now

Lurking is more town indicative for Kokochi than it is for Nico and yeah, good point about the naked vote thing. I recall in Labrynth, Nico made it a point of saying that she required flips first, to have a read/vote.

Good post.

I can find em after you're in the dirt.
Day's dragged on long enough.
This sort of tactic won't work on me.

You can try to render this as an out-of-game thread by making it about site culture, but that's also not going to work on me.

We're still town so the longer you spend arrogantly deathtunnelling us for no reason, the more the gamestate suffers.

Well hi Shoshin, for a hydra that claims to coordinate all posts with each other this post strikes as something you haven’t conferred over - almost like my accusation of this pocketing has shook you a little bit - guess I’m on the money

This is a brilliant way not to answer my question. What about this strikes you as pocketing and why do you think it's an issue I walked away from my PC at the time?

The walking away bit might have been coincidental

The breaking out into 2 heads was the most interesting though

What do you mean about breaking into 2 heads? and what about it interests you?

We slightly townread ProFlavor but it's largely meta related and quite a weak townread. I think him joining us on you is slightly town indicative but only in a vacuum that it's the kind of thing profii does without paying attention to the gamestate (he followed his scumread onto another scumread). I'd also probably expect a little bit more from Flavour as scum here. He doesn't carry the energy he usually puts into scumming.

Chara is creeping up our list but it's also the first townread we are wrong on (outside of need to sort Varsoon). Its scumgame is pretty good and I think pocketing us at the time it questioned Varsoon on his read of us would be genuinely perfect timing. For the mort part though that slot is town, outside of paranoia.

Alchemist we're currently fairly strongly town on, I think we have spoken about this.

Hol up, what’s with the phrasing?

We were originally slightly paranoid and nervous about townreading them so easily. We aren't now though.
