Shucks.
Like why is Ranger being voted? Because they "could" be faking? I think their current level of activity and engagement should make them a obvious slot to leave for later compared to many other much more likely to be scum slots.
Or this?

I feel like what Dusa is doing is to use their gimmick to avoid their takes being scrutinized.

If they said: "I scumread Ranger because of this post" and it’s not very convincing then they should get called out for it.

But they are specifically going: "Lord Zeus and Hades vibe me this that Ranger is a child of the sea snake demon and i prophesize that blah blah" then nobody can criticize them because of their gimmick making it hard to actually understand what they are thinking.

Isn’t this how a scum!Dusa could be playing?
Is this how town plays gimmick accounts?
I don’t feel like it is.
Ngl hate this take, I don’t see Dusa hiding their takes at all. If you need help deciphering a post let me know I’ll help.
That’s ok, just hearing you say this is informative to me.
I really just want to hear more people’s actual take on Dusa, (and their own response).

Isn't 'help me bus' a classic scum tactic? What exactly is town about this?

They're one and the same. If you think the formation of the wagon suspect,

that's not necessarily true. you can sway a lot of people into a wagon long before you vote it yourself, if you're competent enough as scum
Then who were the players doing so for Snivy?

I'm going to warn you; when I flip town, you'll almost assuredly be the focus on D3.

Whereas if we get Snivy, then maybe the crowd who has pushed Ranger/osuka since Sail was around would perhaps be forced to reevaluate their biases.

Could it perhaps be the entire thing was performative, designed to drop pressure on him and he was hoping people would forget?

Just a thought.

Everyone I scumread could be town. There's always doubts. It's not as if camelCasedSnivy's 100% guaranteed scum. I understand why people could read him town and see signs supporting that possibility. However, the overall picture strongly indicates to me he's scum. CCS isn't even bothering to effort on the verge of death's door. He's letting others defend him and is doing nothing to leave what could potentially be final thoughts. Consistently, he's demonstrating his goal's to survive, not find scum.

When you are neck and neck tied for the lead wagon as town, what do you do? Personally, my preference is to provide a great deal of snark while providing my reads for course correcting after my townflip.

When you are neck and neck tied for the lead wagon as scum, what do you do? There's two school of thoughts. One is to mimic the townplay above by hardcore efforting. The other is to be antispew and do the bare minimum.

Which of these more closely resembles camelCasedSnivy's play?

The entire wagon composition, save Dannflor, is suspect though.

Actually, a lot of my reads are based primarily around the play in the game. Meta's a tool to augment it, giving leeway to slots from playstyle things, giving extra sus to slots for not displaying playstyle things, etc.

My feelings on Drew are he's displaying a solving mindset, and I don't believe it's scum faking one; that's the most important thing I look for in any player.

In post 2671, Andresvmb wrote:I’m not particularly happy about my read there changing today
This is a problem too many players have, and is the entire reason why I'm willing to flip someone from bottom of my readslist to near the top or vice-versa. Players have a bad habit of holding onto reads without considering new facts; my entire mantra is to avoid having done so.

I'm not perfect about it. I still have biases which take time for me to catch and correct. Still, the result of this methodology is, it increases the value behind the reads which
aren't
shifting. It means if a read
hasn't
changed, there's good reason for it having remained.

This is a point people continue to get wrong, so apparently I need to continuously correct it.

I didn't want to stop Sail from going through.

I stated my belief Sail was town.
I stated my preference for other wagons.
I didn't have such strong reads as to push against the wagon. I knew Sail could've flipped scum, and I didn't feel like derailing a potential scum wagon because I didn't see it as scum. My townread could've been wrong, considering it was weak and somewhat flimsy. Sail flipping town was my expectation; I didn't think it guaranteed. Why would I fight hard against a wagon which could've flipped against my expectation?

This seems to be a concept people don't get, and I don't understand how it isn't clear. Has nobody had a townread on a wagon they still support going through because they're aware they could be wrong and their townread could be scum? It shouldn't be a hard concept to grasp, yet seemingly, nobody understands that was my Sail stance.

I just feel more confident in CCS at this moment

combination of some glimmers of doubt regarding your slot and some growing confidence in CCS

mostly i don’t think his read trajectory on you makes like any sense from a town perspective, and i think that’s regardless of your alignment here
