So I'm just rereading the ruleset

uh, do we just do nothing first dance?

Sorry I was about to vomit out some setup stuff that hinged around how much I hate the coins and then I realized simply not lynching anyone was an option.

Or alternatively, @FakeGod, is No Lynch an option for first dance?

So basically there are two ways to play this setup.

I think *both are viable*... and we maybe should think about it a little bit

Strategy 1: We commit to a tentative grouping of 6 locktown players to endgame

Problem with Strategy 1: Scum will, on average, I believe have 6-7 coins toward the end of dance one. But they can have more.

So the really annoying scenario that might have made me really angry in the past is {what if this game gets really stupid}

The game gets really stupid if we spend all of pre-dance hammering down our top 6 townreads, and then it's clear what the lynch order is

So we have at the end of dance 1 7 pairs:
Town pair 1
Town pair 2
Town pair 3
{knows they will get lynched pair A}
{knows they will get lynched pair B}
{knows they will get lynched pair C}
{knows they will get lynched pair D}

Which means that *if* (and again, this is actually a statistically uncommon scenario) there are two scum men in "ABCD" and their combined coin count is over 8 (which is barely a statistical blip -- if there are two scum men it is not at all unlikely their combined count is over 8) which would mean if they wanted to they could actually lynch Town Pair 1, kill Town pair 2 at night, and then throw the IC on one of the two scum men that scumclaimed, thus rendering the IC useless and creating massive wifom about the remaining pairings. That might even be game winning at that point if no scum had been lynched at that point.

I am NOT saying this is a likely scenario. But I did, at some point in the past, start getting *very focused* on this particular scenario and I think we might want to think very briefly about how we want to actually play out this game

Basically what this comes down to is:
A) I don't actually think we should attempt to solve the game at all in Pre-dance
B) In Dance 1, we should just immediately no lynch

Instead, I think in pre-dance, we should all just pair with people we would like to solve the game with in dance 2. We should not necessarily pair with people we are locktown on, but rather on people we would enjoy sorting in a PT and enjoy solving with if we are still alive in dance 2

Then we go to First Dance, and then it's like Hunger Games Lovers-Version until we're at 12 people, and it's a nightless so we don't transition until multiple pairs are gone.


Right this is what it *seems like it should be* but this means creating a risk, which may only be like a 20% or lower risk, that the game gets exceptionally stupid

Basically I think overall town chances are stronger if we skip dance 1 and just totally throw the coins mechanic out the window because it exclusively helps scum

I know this seems intuitive, and if *that is how you want to pair* then I think you should pair that way.

What I'm discussing right now is whether *everyone* should be holding off on dances until late pre-dance because *town needs to solidify top 6 pairings*

If we are strongly in favor of "strategy 1" then no one should dance until late pre-dance

But if we are going for "strategy 2" then people who want to pair fast can pair fast and people who want to pair slow can pair slow

This is another strategy but it presents all the same risks of strategy 1, which is if we are wrong on some reads Dance 1 risks getting really, really stupid

I guess partly I just want to make it so there is less scum motivation in scum claiming and speed lynching town

But you may be partly right. I might need to think about this. But I think this is why we basically just have to no lynch. Otherwise if we mislynch once, and scum have 8+ combined coins, the game gets really stupid really fast.

I don't know if you noticed this yet but I really don't like the coins since they risk making pre-dance pointless and/or risks turning apparently optimal d1 play for town into a disaster.

But you maybe right--maybe we want the ladies with coins 5-8 to all hardclaim, and actually just pair in order of townreads there?

Otherwise if we have 2 scum gentlemen that, combined, have 8+ coins, dance 1 is just awful for town

I think that's worth adding to the pool actually.

Scenario 1 (Potentially bad -- I was wrong in advocating it last time) -- Ignore coins, just figure out the top 6 townreads, lock them, let everyone else dance wherever

Scenario 2 (Probably OK) -- Ignore coins, keep the lynch order unclear, no lynch dance 1, plan to play the game as a mountainous in second dance

Scenario 3 (Maybe better?) -- Ladies with 5+ coins hardclaim coin counts, and we pair the top 4 townread men with them

If we are going with scenario 3 we do need to ask people to not yolo pair

But if we're going with scenario 2 yolo pairings are fine

So thoughts there would be good

actually parts of these aren't exclusive

I think we could pair top 4 townread men with top 4 coin ladies, and then we STILL hammer no lynch as soon as dance 1 begins

However, given that a mountainous in dance 2 can be really exhausting for town, I do think there is merit in going with at least some of the logic of scenario 2 -- have the top 4 coin ladies choose a man they townread that they can enjoy solving with or enjoy sorting rather than having it be over-determined by group consensus

So basically, top 4 coin ladies still get to pick their partners. *town does not pick for them*, but *town can by consensus reject a pairing*?

That is, top 4 ladies just have 1 extra step.

1. Dude offers
2. If Lady likes the dude, Lady asks, "who all scumreads this guy?"
3. If it's less than half the town, she accepts. She only rejects if more than half the town rejects the pairing

whereas the other 4 ladies are just like
1. Dude offers
2. Lady decides

something like that?

I'm still in the mindset that if we're going with scenario 2 it's actually better strategically to not give reads in pre-dance, although I'm slightly gravitating toward scenario 3 the more I think about it, partly since it would make pre-dance more informative. But also possibly more frustrating. I think there's actually an appeal in this setup to just having a fun pre-dance where people really just pair off personality, especially if we're planning on a long second dance

So if I'm focusing a lot on setup spec rather than reads right now, it's because *one scenario in setup spec means we don't even talk about reads* which I know sounds really counter-intuitive and maybe dumb.

I mean the coin factor.

I think maybe we decide on who the scummiest gent is, so he doesn’t even make it to the first dance.


It *could* matter.

If there are two scum gentlemen and they have 15 coins they could just lynch three pairings of their choice if town could not hammer no lynch fast enough.

As I said, Dance 1 *can* be exceptionally stupid, even if I don't know scum would play like that. I'm just saying, *there is a scenario* where dance 1 is incredibly dumb and I almost want to get to dance 2 before I even 'really try' frankly because otherwise there's a chance we spend days arguing over pairings and then scum just sweep because they somehow ended up with lots of coins.

It's important to me that if I am going to put a lot of thought into people's alignments that I feel pretty strongly scum can't just nuke my entire townblock because they have the voting power of 10-17 people

Yeah, maybe I'm pushing scenario 2 to an illogical extreme

For scenario 2, we just don't want the 'lynch order' of the town to be super obvious to scum. There should not be a scum motivation in using coins to try to lynch members of the towncore during dance 1.

That probably does not mean we can't give reads, so actually feel free giving reads

In post 110, Dannflor wrote:I'm not following that scum have as much power as you say they do in the first dance, even considering worst possible scenario coin totals. Won't the orchestration of a lynch on a pair that's been universally agreed to be town essentially reveal the entire scum team?


See the problem here is that FakeGod has not established timers between each lynch in Dance 1. People can leave the dance, FakeGod gives a flip, and the game continues.

So if Dance 1 took {more than a day}, scum could ask FakeGod a mod question, then just try to sweep before their partners had a chance to leave the dance and stop them.

Basically I am trying to avoid:
Scumreadgent1 and scumreadgent2: "Hey who all is on right now? Also, @mod could we get a vote count"
Mod: "Vote count"
*no other responses*
Scumreadgent 1 and scumread gent 2: *lynches 3 town pairs*

Does that actually happen? I don't know. But I think there's merit in making sure that two scumread men do not have more than 10 combined coins if possible.

In post 153, Allomancer wrote:Here's the problem with the strategy of NL for first dance: while we get an IC, scum also gets a NK before we lynch anyone. This means we would potentially lose two strong townreads before they have much of a chance to read the game. By having at least one lynch D1 we get their updated reads following the flip before they die. I think the second lynch D1 is partially unnecessary, but we definitely want to lynch at least one.

Thus, I approve of the strategy of wealth ladies claiming and only accepting offers from gentlemen who are widely townread. A claim actually doesn't help scum at all with their NK, because by the time they get a kill, coins don't matter anymore anyway.


Also thinking here about Gamma and Ank's comments:

This is true but bear in mind that in other versions of the game, such as in Halloweens' Ball, the entire lynch order was decided in pre-dance. The vast majority of decision making in this game will take place within a span of 8 days. The question we partly need to decide is when, if ever, we firmly commit to a lynch priority order.

Building on my little note from earlier, there are two scenarios at the start of day 1:
The first gent flips red -- In this scenario, we can just play on. The risk of scum forcing a lynch and scum claiming is significantly lower now.

The first gent flips green -- Do we hammer no lynch? Your argument is true, that a townread pair will die. This happens no matter what.

The way things are going, that pair will have made their reads in pre-dance probably. I think scenario 2, where people keep mum until second dance, just isn't going to fly with this crowd. That's fine.

Ank makes the point that scum might kill strong town players. I can expand more on that in a bit, but a strong player being dead isn't devastating for town if town is willing to seriously consider that player's reads. Additionally, we can consider mitigating this, but pairing strong players with nulls or scumleans to mitigate losing two strong players to a single kill.

You do make another compelling point, though, which is that we might want town to update reads after the flip of the first gentleman. I don't think most people's reads lists will tend to dramatically change after a single flip unless, of course, we flip scum, though--and in that case, we can play dance 1 to full length anyway.

In post 160, Alisae wrote:yeah I’m still of the opinion that coins don’t matter


This was my inclination on how to play in the first dance, and I do think that there's at least a 25% chance or so that they don't matter (i.e., if there's 2 scum ladies and 1 scum gent, and the 1 scum gent ends up with fewer than 8 coins, coins don't matter).

The question for me is how much we play around worst case scenarios (2 scum gents who combined have 8 or more coins and who are likely to be lynched) -- and partly the reason I get so hung up on this is that "2 scum gents who combined have 8 or more coins and are likely to be lynched" is relatively likely if town is ignoring coins and just playing like halloweens ball. So coins might not matter, I would prefer if coins didn't matter, but I think it is dangerous to just totally ignore them and play as though they don't exist

So I should take a little time to explain why this is not a huge concern to me so you know where I'm coming from.

I have, personally, had a wildly ranging mix of experiences with RC. My first game with him was a disaster. My first game as scum against him, keeping him alive was basically my only wincon. My second game as town with him was simply frustrating because everyone started sheeping his reads after he died and I didn't feel like the game was being played anymore so I replaced out.

After that, I played with him on a hidden alt and had two very positive experiences with him, one where we solved the game together, and another where he failed to catch me as scum. On the whole, I know that I can have a good time with RC, although when we have played on my main, things have tended to be pretty rocky. I don't know if that's just bad hangovers from my first game or what.

So I am aware RC can have very strong, good games. But in my personal experience over the last year, his reads have been good but I don't see the need to freak out over his slot in particular. He's a strong, competent player, but not necessarily the one I would say is easiest to townread or the slot that I would assume would be the nightkill, given that when I was scum against him, I never tried to nightkill him and never really considered it. He can have really good games or really bad games just like anyone else. I like the energy he brings to the table and I'd like us to be friends even though we've had some rough experiences in the past and I might have shittalked him pretty badly one game shortly after that first disastrous game.

Also, as an aside, I don't think it's healthy to make a weird meta for RC before he even enters the game and I don't really want to discuss him more before he has a chance to post.

But I vehemently deny that skipping first dance is a good idea in any stretch


This is fair, the question then simply is how long do we want dance 1 to be, because that is tied to how risky dance 1 is for town in my mind. Like we could treat Dance 1 like a Blitz Phase and just give it like 12 hours and then resolve it one way or the other before all of the town goes to sleep. idk we can keep talking about it

-- and I'm sorry to everyone for focusing on mechanics so much this early but it does really matter to me in terms of how we approach the pre-dance

Having modded games with RC, I do know that some scumteams will prioritize RC as an early kill, so your concern is reasonable, but I wouldn't go so far as to say he is a "blatantly obvious" kill particularly when we don't know whether he will choose to obvtown or who he will be paired with

Yeah I apologize again I'm going to try to kill mechanical discussion after this real life day. It sounds like majority is on board with 5+ coin women claiming

although that claim doesn't even have to be today, we could let people just sort of do their thing for a day or two, but we probably want the 8 coin lady to claim in like the next two days I think

something like that, idk

Hmm, but if I can strongly townread you without a PT, wouldn't it be better for me to be in a PT with someone who I can try to sort and would therefore be more important for solving?

'not all eggs in one basket' was my thought here

that being said, I certainly would love to be in a PT with you if only for fun :) so in terms of maintaining wim in dance 2, it might be worth considering

yeah I think the main thing people agreed on was ladies with coins *claiming eventually*

not necessarily yet, we can let people try to form some reads before they know who has how many coins

but before we form all pairings, or before too many pairings are formed, we have the 4 rich women claim and then sort them first, if there haven't been too many yolodances

yeah this setup is deceptively complicated which is why I replaced out last time when I realized I was basically wrong about everything for the first day or two, because *some things might matter not at all* but *could matter a lot* and some of that has to deal with the RNG of whether scum have 2 gents or 1 gent (or 0 or 3 etc.). Dance 1 could be totally fine and played like any other phase if scum have three ladies -- but we don't know that, and I get pretty frustrated pushing a strategy around worst case scenarios which might be totally pointless if RNG swung all the scum on ladies

basically this setup has the potential to have a lot of wasted effort, but that's fine it's like a quasi-blitz given it can only last 26 days tops

I think was absolutely right that the 8-coin lady probably realizes she needs to claim regardless of what the rest of the town decides

I think realizing how important it is for 5-7 coin ladies to claim is not quite as obvious at a first glance of the setup

While the coins might actually make a slightly higher incentive for a scum/scum pairing if a scum lady rolled high on coins, I think in general scum try to avoid scum/scum pairings unless doing so would make them look likely to be a top pairing

second, I don't think anyone has really came close to breaking the setup to its core because its the best lovers setup ever created. The reason being its simple. You pair up, then you lynch, and then you leave gg ez game ez money. It's a classic. Not to mention there are 0 night actions aside from a kill. So mechanically, there is literally nothing to break.


First of all, yes I was and I apologize. I could make other excuses -- I wasn't enjoying the game, I was having an awful day at work, I was overwhelmed by the pace of the game -- but frankly I just thought it wouldn't be a big deal since the player list had filled fast and the player list seemed strong. I absolutely did not anticipate there being multiple other replace outs at the same time or for the replacement requests to be filled so slowly. But the bottom line is that I was an asshole and I'm sorry.

On the second point, I'm not sure I was saying the setup could be broken, just that it can be really frustrating for town depending on certain conditions aligning in first dance

I have a pretty strong read of Nancy but I don't want to use my read to impact her decision to stay in the game or not, if she is going to stay I would like her to stay because she is willing to separate how people are currently reading her in the game from her desire to play the game

Generally these games do not, in fact, last 26 days. On average we should be looking at something like ~20 days I think? some phases will usually go much faster than others.

In Halloweens' Ball I think think the lynch priority order was all decided in pre-dance, which was 8 days. So I think that town can in fact sort that many players in 8 days (they may even be better at it than in a slower game). Town did play out dance 1, but again, there was no coins mechanic there. So basically I'm just saying that the time town took in dance 1 there would be more safely allocated in dance 2. 8 days-1 day-8 days, rather than 8 days-8 days-1 day

As it is, I don't think town is just going to skip pre-dance, and it sounds like town is kinda playing around with actually playing at least some big chunk of Dance 1. So we should have like about the average 20 days to sort even if we skip dance 1--8 days pre-dance, skip dance 1, 2 day intermission, 8 days for second dance.

And we would still play out Dance 1 if the gentlemen we exclude at end of pre-dance is scum.

So I do think skipping dance 1 is still a reasonable offer, but I think we can also play dance 1 out if we feel pretty good about the top 4 town gentlemen and the coin pairings.

Gonna grab some dinner now, -- if you want me to stop talking mech, please stop asking me mech questions lol

So, given Firebringer's claim and the lack of CC's, I'm going to assume that's real.

I don't have a super strong scumread on Vedith or anything but I really don't want to bet my (in)sanity on him being town, so I'm both doubling down on my "Dance 1 should be at most 12 hours" idea. Basically, I want people awake and looking at the thread. If a scum tries to scumclaim by rushing a lynch, at least there's a good chance one of their partners will be on to leave the dance and prevent a sweep. So I don't know we need to rush Dance 1, but I don't want us to dawdle with it either. When we start Dance 1, we should have a relatively clear idea of who we are going to lynch first.

And while it may not matter, since scum won't scumclaim if we lynch a gent at the end of pre-dance, I also think we're going to veer more into a "plan 2" direction, where we should be prioritizing long-term wim and dancing with good matches that we can work with rather than other factors or torturing ourselves day 1

Following along from that logic, I would like to dance with Taly.

I think this is a good pairing for the following reasons:
-I like Taly and think I would work well with him
-I think that if I can solidify my townread in the PT in dance 1 and if we are still alive in dance 2, we can work well in solving the game
-We are not both universally townread so if scum opted to kill us, they would be providing useful information for the town

Since the logic of "let's fuck around with claiming coins" no longer really has a lot of merit given firebringer/vedith pairing and the risks that imposes, I'm going to submit the request. Taly can consider at her leisure if she would like to accept it, when she wakes up.

realize what I mean by "rush" here may be confusing; I mean we don't necessarily need to immediately hammer no lynch like I originally thought, but I do not want people falling asleep basically and having there be a point where there's a risk of only a few scum/fakegod being online. So 'kinda rush' but not 'immediately skip before anyone says anything'

ideally we would have like one, really productive day, and then end before any major risks present themselves (unless we lynch scum early, in which case we can take the full 8 days)

I'm also going to avoid pairing if Vedith thinks its a good idea for him to vote at all in the second lynch of dance 1.


just wondering but why

you could a) not pair and give vedith the power to lolhammer anyone, unless we somehow force a second pair to not dance either
or b) get a flip on lowest gentleman and also a flip on two townies
and then, if you wanted to (I am not advocating this) leave the dance

why avoid pairing before dance rather than leave the dance at start of dance 2 after no lynching dance 1 (or possibly lynching 2 pairs but I'm a lot less optimistic about that with vedith)? wouldn't you rather decide to leave the dance when you have more information rather than less?

Preface: I don't have any super strong scum reads right now. What I have is the beginning of a poe built around a wealth of townreads. I don't particularly want to expand on my townreads right now, since I think indicating how "locktown" or "leantown" people are in my hierarchy is potentially more beneficial for scum than town. This is just where I am right now.

People I would like to see alive in second dance: PvtUrist, RadiantCowbells, Dannflor, Ankamius, Nancy Drew 39, Gamma Emerald, Taly

Vedith -- Firebringer is a special case -- I don't strongly townlean Vedith, and am mildly annoyed at him for how he has acted since the coins thing was revealed. Firebringer I would have otherwise liked to see in second dance but I'm pretty indifferent to Firebringer doing his usual shtick of leaving the dance rn -- if she wants to, fine, if not, we can deal with it in dance 2.

That leaves me with a 4:3 for remaining reads, of which, thru the power of maths, 4 must be town, and 3 will be scum (if Vedith is town, which I'm still thinking about). Don't think I've had a full solve d1 recently, but what ya gonna do. I wanted to narrow this down to 3:2 since that is more informative for how I would like things to go in Dance 1 but frankly some of my edge reads just aren't there yet

Allomancer -- Highest of my low gents. I think Allo has been playing pretty pro-town in terms of his mech thoughts and I feel like I've usually understood where he was coming from with his reads. The scumreads I believe are primarilly tonal I believe, which suggests to me that I need to at some point sit down and meta him, because I take tonal scumreads seriously
Moment -- there is literally nothing to work with here. Given my wealth of townreads this means he is low on my list rn
DoubtingThomas -- mostly I disliked some of DoubtingThomas's reactions to Dr Worm's posts, but overall I'd say this is more null-defaultscumlean than a scumread
Dr Worm -- this is probably the slot that bothers me the most right now. I think he's funny, I think he's having fun, I'm not nearly as annoyed by him as other people are. But I think he flat lied about not being a stealth alt; based on his lexicon, thought processes, way of presenting arguments, and mechanical familiarity, this is someone who has played forum/chat mafia before and I think he deliberately downplayed his experience at the start of the game. That does not *make him lockscum*. But I would have very much preferred if he just said "I'm a stealth alt, don't mainhunt me plz guys" -- he's denied this multiple times. Maybe it's true. But there are several phrases that are specific to *this site* that he has been using so either he is a really fast learner or he has been lying about his self-meta.

Pink Ball -- I actually really liked and I very nearly have thrown this into my "would like to see alive in dance 2" and just decided that there's probably 2 scum gents, 1 scum lady, but I feel like I'm just not familiar enough with the player yet to feel totally comfortable doing that. Easily the most likely town out of my bottom 7 unpaired right now though.
Alisae -- I feel like I just haven't gotten a full whiff of town Alisae yet this game but this isn't really a scumread, just haven't seen the town yet
TheBrie -- I feel like in each of her long posts there's one line I kinda dislike, so in terms of like/dislike ratio this is one of the lower players, but again I wouldn't say this is a strong scumread

this is the reason I am annoyed at you right now, although reading it again I guess there is a chance you were not actually implying you'd use the coin votes in dance 1 to lynch Ank which is how I took it at the time

I townread Pink Ball and Taly for it because the way they went about it was very much about diffusing the situation, RC's approach didn't really do that as much so meh I don't really think he's scum but I don't think that's a great argument for town RC imo

In post 1244, Dannflor wrote:
In post 1241, Nancy Drew 39 wrote:Well I haven’t played with scum!RC but him not wanting to rush the pairings also seems pro-town. doesn’t it?

But I dunno. I suppose I should wait for more content from him but nothing I’ve read from him so far has pinged me either. I’m definitely not townlocking him for this. If he does something I consider scummy, of course I’ll revisit my reads.

Yea, no I actually agree with you and have RC as leaning town, though he hasn't posted enough for me to be super confident

I'm just pointing out why him defending you doesn't ping me as hard as town as other players.

In regards to not wanting to rush the pairings... yes it's pro-town, but it's also an easy thing to say and be like "omg Vedith why did u pair up so quick and make things harder for town btw I'm totally TOWN" (I'm not saying RC did that but I definitely am suspicious of Allomancer for that exact sort of posting)


Thinking about Dann's tonalities; on a meta check it would be interesting to see whether he presents his thoughts more as "I" as town vs. directly addressing the person he's referring to as he does in the second post here. I think it's interesting he moved between the two styles on the same page.

I like protoss myself quite a bit but Terran is a much more versatile race to play that I can do way more in terms of playstyles where as with protoss you can only do like 2 different kind of builds.

Plus dropping marines in bases is just the best.

Whichever out of PvtUrist or Dannflor you both townread and would give you high WIM, or maybe Allomancer if you disagree with the tonal reads there.

You townreading the person would be important, since I do trust your reads.

That being said I understand why you are considering RC but I actually think the likelihood you get nightkilled is pretty high in that scenario tbh

Because that makes it clearer who the top townread pair is for scum which increases their win EV. The bottom pairings are more relevant because those are the pairings that will be under consideration in dance 1 when we will have significantly less information and also less time (if we go with anything resembling my plan).

Yeah tbh considering Taly hasn't accepted immediately and I didn't expect her to, I don't think beginning the matching process nearly 25% of the way into the cycle is bad. I think pushing for continued sorting is fair but I don't think it's too early to start seriously considering pairings. Frankly I think the remainder of the cycle will be more productive if we act like each 48 hours could be the end of the cycle, even if that is an unlikely scenario.

Remember your goal is not to pair with a universal townread in this setup, your goal is to pair with someone that you can sort and that you will have motivation to solve the game with in dance 2. Or at least that's how I see it; if you disagree and just think you will give up if you pair with one of the harder to sort town gents then I at least understand where you're coming from

idk, question is where I think reads will be of Taly at end of day and where I think reads of you will be. I think Taly has some town reads, like maybe some scum leans. Ank is pushing me scum, RC seems to have me null at best, and some people townread me. To me that sounds like a good pairing if I want both of us alive dance 2. But there is a chance I'm scummy enough to keep you alive, sure.

You + Dann would be interesting, mostly because I think Dann has some natural talent at scum play and I would like to see your read based on his PT play. I also don't think Dann is widely townread so that seems like a decent pairing to me.

alright fair, I misunderstood what you were saying and that's partly on me. I guess I took you saying "I have played mafia before with my FRIENDS and I think I'm GETTING BETTER" to imply that you had played only irl. That being said I do think the way you presented this was... arguably misleading. But maybe you were just being coy since you don't want people mainhunting you.

That being said I think people will mainhunt you less if you just ask them not to, that's fine.

Also not in love with your interactions with Nancy but I'm just going to bracket you off for the moment since I guess I should probably try to reassess.

@ank, Yeah I'm leaning that way now

I thought Nancy was just annoyed that he started with a scumlean on her but looking back I was really only townpiling him because of one post and now I don't like it so I guess I'd swap him with Allo in my bottom 4

I guess with rethinking Worm I wouldn't put him quite on the bottom of my men, but I also don't really feel great about DoubtingThomas being at the bottom. I guess some people were towning DoubtingThomas but I'm not exactly sure which posts they were seeing town in.

Would you put Worm below DT?

So I kinda just have to shove all that back with a pole and say, "Okay, yeah, I have yet to find a good reason to scumread Dann here"

I mean Ank isn't incorrect that, all things being equal, in an open setup with no doctor, a townread RC is not an unlikely nightkill

But I think we need to not overanalyze who should or should not be with RC until he actually has time to process the game and give some developed reads

I'm townleaning him but I give his scum game enough credit that I do think it's right to wait until we've seen more

So I'm gonna bracket him off until I see him... idk, do some more stuff other than just push nancy here and there

Fair enough, although I guess I would still say -- the most obvtown pair is going to die, and I still kinda don't get why you think the town is way worse off with that being before we start lynching rather than after we lynch two pairs and maybe risk a second pair getting lynched by a desperate scumread player like vedith

like my "no lynch" argument was basically for this exact scenario

I liked his at the time but I haven't really been in love with most of his posts since then

I thought the nancy read was wrong but I felt like I knew where he was coming from, and other than that it seemed fine given the game state

still think PB is a harder read so nullscum seemed fine, and while I have cooled significantly on Alisae and Vedith, I thought townreading them in the first thousand posts was basically fine

so idk

In post 1709, Ankamius wrote:I think going into second dance with more than 12 players is just inherently bad for town, honestly

I'm very wary of letting scum have that much influence in who doesn't get a voice in the game anymore before we maximize what we can get from everyone still alive

If we measure the game in % progress where 100% means a town win, then we are giving scum the tools to potentially cripple us by removing potentially two players with the highest ability to increase towns progress before they have the proper influence to use what flips are already there to increase the progress bar.

Does that metaphor make sense?


I mean... in previous runs of this setup, "scum kill IC"

I feel like town will have a lot more information from the nightkill, and they will have an IC at that point.

So I think the conversation and discussion at that point will be more interesting and therefore more informative.

Also, it's not like we won't get those player's perspectives. We will still have what they say in pre-dance.

Basically I just don't want vedith lolhammering someone dance 1 AFTER we spend 8 days hammering out an optimized lynch order because that would just be so tilting I [do not want to threaten replacing out, but my WIM would plummet in such a scenario]

basically I want to mitigate any scenario that would make me and the rest of the town too demoralized to win the game, even if it got us one low-hanging scum

fuck I'm ranting about mech again aren't I

Ank you're also slightly ignoring the possibility that we actually flip a scum gent

I know it's unlikely but it is possible, but if that happened I think vedith scum claiming by yolo hammering is much less likely, and we would at that point be able to play out dance 1 at a more even pace

you could give input, and if you thought you were with scum or the game wouldn't be fun because your partner was lame you could leave the dance*

*note that I do not actually advocate doing this, I simply see it as a better option than refusing to dance in the first place

I mean I guess we still don't have cohesion on whether we're no lynching, speed lynching, or doing what in dance 1 so I guess you might want to pick someone that will go with town choices from pre-dance. I would prefer that you townread them given I'm leaning town on you.

I'm not entirely opposed to Nancy/RC

I feel like the post count is sorta keeping up but the rate of interesting things being said has started to slow down

I need more from Allo, Pvt, Alisae, Moment, {RC, but more because I want to see more of his reads}, and I think I need to reread Pink Ball sometime later today

I feel like I've asked for literally anyone to explain their townreads of DT and I don't think I've heard it yet? I'm not even scumcasing him, he's just the lowest of my nulls with a few minor pings and I'm trying to see what other people like about the slot

Given that one gentlemen is leaving the dance already, do you have a preference for who should be excluded from the dance in pre-dance, and is there a second gentlemen that you scumread strongly enough that you would refrain from joining the dance to ensure his exclusion?

Ok I reread Worm's iso now that I'm like 60% sure of his main and I'm still not sure but I'm not sure I entirely want him in my bottom two, and if I'm redoing my bottom males entirely then I should be thinking about DT anyway.

If Worm doesn't want to survive intermission I am not strongly opposed to him suicide bombing a scum lady although Alisae will probably say I'm scum for mentioning it--but I'm just being real here, Dance 2 will probably be hectic AF and my impression right now is that he doesn't want to replace out but can't keep up with the game while still giving informed reads.

@Worm is that what's going on with that last post?

I don't agree with you nuking yourself in that case. Scum are probably going to do one of three things with the IC:
1- Throw it on the partner of their scummiest partner (more likely)
2- Throw it on someone who won't be a town leader no matter what (likely and also possibly overlapping with 1)
3- Throw it on someone purely for wifom (less likely but in being less likely still possible)

I know that several players have expressed annoyance with your posting style, and as of yet, while I find your posts humorous, you are not an obvious read (at least for me). You being IC'd by scum would not be dramatically *the worst*

Although this line of logic is... mildly townie, so thanks for sharing.

The more I think about it, the less I can see it being a good idea. I'm not all that worried about Vedith, and don't undertand the mechanics well enough to see why it would help anyway. Wouldn't he end up with a larger proportion of the votes with less couples?
Also I believe Ank is still intending to refuse all invitations, so there'll be two gentlemen excluded already.


Right, in that case I would drop this line of thought. If you were like, dead set on TWO guys in particular being scum, then that would be a good 'non-pairing', but otherwise it would be more informative for town to reassess after the pre-dance exclusion

Just for funsies though -- bottom three guys? Not necessarily scumreads if you don't have a lot of scumreads, but bottom three guys you have the least reason to townlean? That's basically what I'm doing and I actually think it's helping my thought process more than I thought it would

Nancy sometimes it's hard to tell which one is the joke, ngl

but are you really advocating a policy lynch on worm just because you don't like his posts or are you scumreading him for his push on you?

If I was a lady I'd love a dance with worm

one-way ticket to second dance imo

Shit I think that means I've started subconsciously thinking of worm as town already, hmm.

how have I gone from too much scum in the gents to not enough scum in the gents

maybe Allo needs to be lower?

I think I liked Allo for pushing me for reads but I don't actually have a lot of other reasons to townread him

His snippy catchup today pinged me just very slightly given I asked him 7 minutes after to expand on DT and he was already gone

Maybe worm goes up and then I play around with my Pvt read

I think this is the only thing Dann said so far that particularly pinged me, and there I was more thinking it was possibly just shoddy reasoning. idk, Ank what did you think of this post? Was Dann possibly trying to pocket you?

Feel like this is the same line of bogus reasoning that makes town incorrectly townread scum when they do things like self-voting, when scum I think self-votes way more frequently than town does (or at least under different circumstances)...

I agree on Ank Town, I just was worried you were trying to fabricate reasons for townreading Ank when you already know she's town. That being said it's not a strong ping and I still think you're town rn, just the first one I felt

true, but Varsoon also used mech talk as a way to break town cohesion so it's worth watching for, that's why I more want to see Moment's reads from deeper into the thread, feel like it's pointless to interrogate his reads when they don't even exist yet

In post 2025, Dannflor wrote:I've actually had a completely opposite experience re: self-voting, so maybe that's why I'm viewing this the way I am


I think the timing and purpose matters

Scum self-vote:
1-To anti-spew
2-To spike AtE or play up how "real" their emotions are

Town self-vote:
3-To take the piss
4-Because they legitimately believe their flip will help town

If you buy Worm's reasoning, and I kinda do rn, he felt more like #4.

Ank is pretty skilled but she felt a littttle bit closer to the third than the second for me.

I think if RC pairs Alisae he for sure survives to second dance but I'm not sure how I'd feel about him making final 4 at that point so mixed feelings overall

I'm okay with him pairing with a nullread, that might be best even, but I'm not sure Alisae is null for me rn

I'd rather Alisae pair with a consensus scumread or nullread at this point ngl

I love her to death tho and hope she comes back to bring some fun memes

<3 u alisae I just kinda think maybe you rolled scum

is alisae my only actual scumlean rn? she might be 0.o

I feel like with TheBrie I just still have questions, like -- what did this have to do with the quoted material in that long post

In post 547, TheBrie wrote:Could be a good idea. But short deadlines can be annoying because I'll likely be asleep for half of it.


While this is probably true I kinda just didn't like it as a potential setup to lurk in second dance if she's still alive

so I think with TheBrie I mostly just didn't have a great first impression

In post 1771, TheBrie wrote:I might be onboard if enough people think it's a good idea. I'm not convinced of Vedith being scum, but I'll believe those who say he can't be relied on to use his lynch power well. I'm glad I don't have anything like that.


I guess later on I still feel like she isn't really processing posts, given she was kinda agreeing with this but wasn't really thinking about *who* she would sacrifice herself to exclude. This was more a "oh I'm being kinda scumread by people, guess I could just die" response which... idk how I feel about

so yeah nothing here makes me go "zomb lockscum" but I do seem to have a shortage of reasons to townread brie at this point outside of some wifomy stuff

I don't necessarily dislike any of the positions she's taking though? So I'm not trying to demoralize her and I hope she gets into the game a bit more

that is the non-snarky version of the snarky comment I didn't write earlier

Ank has a thing against consensus scumreads; she feels more confident when she is going against the grain. Which is great and it's why I love her, but when we clash it tends to be about her gamestate reads which tend to follow this logic

It also does not make her wrong about TheBrie; I have very little confidence TheBrie flips scum here, so I think her comments and reads are productive and helpful for where we are right now
