Woah woah guys these votes
We have no deadlines
What's the rush?

Also, I'm in a PT with Party Boat, Xtoxm, and Nancy Drew 39.
This PT began before gamestart.
We've currently got about 15 posts in there.
It's fairly chill.
That's all I wanted to say.

Everyone posted there but Party Boat.
We've generally agreed to stick to the main game thread for most discussion.

I'm liable to believe that at least one of the four people in my PT is scum, which is why I decided to out the PT in the first place.
That said, it's a fallacy to assume that the same ratio of town to scum in the main thread applies to any PT, so I'd prefer we didn't hunt out of that PT group.

'cus it's a fallacy to assume the same ratios exist within a neighborhood.
If we're all town in there and I make the mistake of assuming one of us is scum, then I have a 100% chance of mislynching if I concentrate there, whereas the game thread ALWAYS has the assured setup ratio.
And I know if I mislynch in there I'll sunk cost it and keep lynching in there
and if they all flip town then I know I'm up shit creek for being the last one left.
Does that make sense?

Wheh.
Porkens replaced out.

Anyway; Just because I think THERE MIGHT BE SCUM in our hood doesn't mean I think that lynching in a pool of ONLY THE HOOD helps us at all.

Basically, we've got 24 players.
Assuming singleball (please mod be singleball--I know my wincon indicates multiple teams, but please, please mod) and a normal 1/4 ratio, that means that if we lynch out of the game thread of players, we have an assured 1/4 chance of hitting scum, of which there are 6 players.

If we try to force a pool of lynches out of the neighborhood, we run into a handful of issues:
1. We don't have the guarantee of the same ratio, so way may literally hit no scum.
2. We run the risk of conf-biasing and lynching multiple town
3. We can't know if there's only one scum there, so even if we lynch once from it and hit scum, it doesn't solve the hood.
4. Players can insist on lynching from the hood pool as policy and avoid engaging elsewhere.
5. Even if the hood follows the same ratio that the game thread does with regard to scum to town (1/4), all these other problems exist and, at best, we trade 3 town lives for 1 scum life, which doesn't win us the game.

So I don't really see why outting the hood but suggesting lynching independent of its existence makes me scum.
I think ya'll voting me are either
1. Scum who are eager to see me flip town, pushing the fallacy that there'd be a higher chance of hitting scum if we just keep lynching out of the hood pool
2. Town who don't grasp what I'm saying here/want to pressure me.

But ayyy

Clearly just trying to protect my own ass, tho.

Profii doesn't even consider my post from a town PoV.
Like
Of course I out the hood--I shouldn't trust it, there COULD be scum there
Of course I don't insist on hunting in the hood--I shouldn't, the same ratios of the game thread ARE NOT mod-confirmed

It's dat simple.

@Profii: that's the thing, though--I still said we should just lynch people ignoring the Neighborhood pool, and if we happened to lynch someone in the Neighborhood, it'd be based on their play in the game rather than hood PoE.

If I wanted to be survivalistic about it, I'd probably just not claim the hood at all, work towards pocketing the people inside of it, and hope that their eventual testimony towards me would make the hood look like a double-blind masonry. That's actually a huge part of why I moved to out it; I didn't want hood interactions coloring things in a way that wouldn't be evident in the main game thread.

P-EDIT: There was the hood that all the red mages were in, Valakut.

Xtoxm commented that he didn't think the hood was 'clean' and likely had 1 or 2 scum.

Spiderverse was really good, probably one of my favorite animated movies ever made.

Also, some shit happened that's really soured me on playing mafia. :/
I'd replace out here but, y'know
no deadlines
just know I'm probably not going to be really engaged or in the game for the next few weeks
if that's okay.
If you guys don't like that or whatever, I can replace, but I don't wanna put that burden on xyxzzy especially when the game's made to cater towards this kinda dip out.

If anyone has questions for me or wanna direct something to me, just bold it at me, k?

Resistance-tell is bad
If you vote for a global townread and then go "AW MAN HOWCOME NO ONE ELSE IS VOTE THERE, SUCH RESISTANCE, SO SCUM" you're probably just wrong.
You need to analyze WHY there was resistance to the wagon. Who was on the wagon? Who was off? Who protested it? Who voted elsewhere? What events were responsible for shifting the game momentum away?
Once you grasp at that, you'll be a much better and thorough player.

In post 719, singletonking wrote:Varsoon, the issue I have with you is this: you first outed your neighbourhood because you believed it contained at least one scum, but then you were the first to propose that your neighbourhood could be all town. I find these mindsets conflicting.

Can you reconcile this?


Even if it could have scum, that doesn't mean that it does.
I outted the hood because
1. IF there is scum there, then any info we share there is not safe from being stolen.
2. IF there is scum there, ya'll can PoE figure out who scum is later in the game.
3. Regardless of if there is scum there or not, it becomes incredibly obvious when 4 people are having out-of-main-thread discussion; any decent player would realize we have some sort of alternate means of interaction, which may get us falsely scumread. Even basic players catch on to this and get suspicious of players who seem to have info they don't/interactions that they haven't seen.
4. The game thread itself, on the other hand, is guaranteed to have the usual ratio of town to non-town alignments. Hunting there should be our priority, as if we're wrong about scum being in the neighborhood, we PoE ourselves into a sunk-cost 4-town-mislynch.

Does that make sense?
How many times do I have to write this out?

VOTE: Sheepsaysmeep

Kokichi knows exactly what he's doing, the lil turd.
It's a real tongue-in-cheek boy-who-cried-wolf kind of thing that's designed solely to test how strictly I adhere to my own scruples
It might be a winking towntell, but I can't be sure of it yet, as he could just be looking to cash in on faith.
In short, Kokichi IS NOT a D3 delayed IC. That's a joke. No such role exists. It's shorthand for 'I am a role that should be able to prove itself as town by D3'.
He knows he gets buried on D3 regardless though
It's all a laugh.

there are still like 20 people in the game with a probably fairly large amount of scum in there assuming multiball

you're ignoring basically everyone else in the game as possible lynches today and I hate it a lot.

Like I want to see some depth to your conclusion here
because you're just saying "His posts are terrible and reactive and largely about one player" doesn't really do much to indicate that Gamma's actually scum and not just laying down such play as town. What about his posts strike you as scum motivated?

@Party: What kind of a droll question is that? I think everyone in this game would vote Sheep.
Wow huge great awesome surprise there.
I don't wagon people based solely on who'd be liable to vote there, though.
I wagon people because I think they're scum.
You can groan and whine and piss blood about 'tunneling' or some shit
But when you've caught scum, are you just going to let them go?
And, besides, I've engaged plenty outside of Sheep.
If anything, I should be doing MORE casing on Sheepsaysmeep.

So you're coming off as super over-protective and vitriolic over my play, which, yeah, it sucks, but it's pretty inoffensive and par for the course, imo.

1. If Sheep is scum this is a hard defend by Partyboat

Honestly and earnestly, I don't know why I sign up for games with more than 15 players.
I can never keep up and I always default to "Kinda do nothing until there's enough players to actually play with reasonably" even though that's usually an awful move.

Wanted interactions with Kokichi, wanted to see how Xtox would respond to me blatantly sheeping him.
Town Cop. Result is 'Not Town'.
I wanted to see what Singleton's reasons for pushing Gamma actually were, and if the 'case' held any weight to it--was doing that because it stuck out to me at the time, independent of my results.
Nancy's probably town and the person I was gonna check last in our PT.
Otherwise, my townreads are sparse, sorry.
I can't really keep track of who's in this game.
Singleton's probably town for the walkback on the Gamma vote, though.

It's been really hard for me to engage with this game; that much should be obvious.
I'd been considering replacing out for some time already.
I really don't handle large games like this very well.

You didn't make me replace out, though, I just think that it's impossible to continue playing this when we haven't resolved issues that are still lingering between us. There shouldn't be that kind of bias or animosity between players when they are in a game like this--it's what led to the issues I had before and it'll only lead to more if I continue to play in this game.

It's not really a matter of 'not bringing it up'. I'd appreciate being able to come to some resolution, and, failing that, I'd like to become a better person if I really am seen as less than decent.

At some point, I'm going to have to make a judgment about what your alignment is.
Regardless of what decision I make, it's going to be colored by that out of game bias.
Because of this lingering issue, further issues may occur, and I really don't want to see a repeat of what's already happened in the past.
For what it's worth, I think you're a good dude and I've enjoyed playing games with you so far.
