Also here. Really busy and currently in the max number of games I want to take on at a time.

Nobody is really pinging hard either way.

TSO vs. Csareo is a lot of reading and not a whole lot of enlightenment.Trying to figure out who's pushing it.

Have a few minor reads.

TSO seems mildly town. Toby and Tiershift feel town. (Tier feels quite town, in fact.)

Nero Cain looks a little suspicious. Cho feels like scum to me.

It's fairly early into D1, and you want solid reads on people? In a large?

Also, Cho was tied with TSO at three votes. I think I can deal with the guilt of putting someone at L-8 or so.

@Scripten
Please explain how you think that would get "town cred" and is not actual scum hunting.
(I fail to see your point of view) (I fail to see how you can hold your point of view.) (It feels made up.) Show me your perspective.


My explanation is literally right there in the quote. Everything about Izar's vote was based on pedantic "You use words that I'm going to construe as scummy because I said they are" logic and hyperbole. The top two wagons were on my top scumread and a town read. I don't (didn't) have a strong enough read on any other player to warrant starting another wagon.

In post 501, PeregrineV wrote:17. Scripten- early scumvibes. Some wording makes me wonder.392- A vote on him for "town cred" can only be town cred if Scripten is scum. Stuff like that keeps me from calling you town.


Uh huh... Because nobody makes votes just to gain good favor with the rest of the town, right? Izar hadn't finished reading the thread, and when you sheeped them, they even seemed surprised/possibly nervous. That said, you are looking WAY scummier than they are right now.

So ready to vote PereV. (Btw uhm... muffin, your nickname for him MIGHT not be apropro. :P ) His (intentional(?)) misinterpretations and the fact that he's ready to vote Thor for discussing multiball are huge red flags. Does nobody else follow why the latter is so scummy?

What irked me about your reads is that they were the most bare bones reads ever. There was NOTHING of interest there that offered a glimpse of what is making your gears turn. Anyone can say "oh, they feel like scum. I think they're town. They seem town." I don't care about that. I want to know WHY you think that. What about their behavior has driven you to those conclusions? I've already clarified this and offered you an opportunity to explain your reads, and you still haven't done so, which I continue to find scummy. ,

Would you care to elaborate now? Your answers won't be alignment-indicative, but they will at least establish a ground zero for your reads. Then I can catch you lying later like the scum you are. Thanks.


My vote on Cho was due to the fact that she had very little actual content and she looked the scummiest of all the players I'd seen up until that point. Her should have been more than enough for an early vote. That said, () has me doubting if I should keep my vote there. I don't wholly agree with it, but it felt slightly townish. In fact, I have a much better vote to hop onto. I bet you'll confbias the hell out of that one, too.

In post 595, Izariael wrote:PeregrineV's sheep on my vote was unexpected and unusual, but it's kind of the only red flag I've seen from him. PeregrineV's play here seems consistent with what I've seen from Town!Peregrine, so I don't really have a scum read on his slot at this time. I think Peregrine has a tendency to appear pretty scummy as town, so my past experience with him has me trying to look past my initial misgivings of his play and look for alternative motivations that could come from town. I'm still undecided on how I feel about him, but it's definitely not a "he must be scum" feeling.


"He always looks scummy to me, so I'm forgiving scummy behavior." Is this not what you are saying here?

In post 595, Izariael wrote:And this is a terrible post. :neutral: If I say "@Everyone - Scripten claimed scum. I caught him. You may sheep me now." will you think this is a good post too?


If you actually had anything and I didn't have a sexy green role PM, maybe.

It's actually hilarious how badly both you and PereV are missing what Thor has been saying. I'm just pointing out how obvious it should be to everyone else. All of these attempts to outguess the mod/setup are really just moot points.

What has Thor been saying? In your own words.


Nah. I think you can figure it out. Actually, on that note, what part of finding it likely that this game is multiball is alignment-indicative? Do you think that scum have a better idea about the setup than town do?

I'd also like this clarified, since it seemed directed at me but I don't actually understand what Thor comment it's referring to. Thor's address of Peregrine and I are two separate topics, so clumping them in together to say "[we're both] missing what Thor has been saying" seems like an attempt to buddy up with Thor.


Ah right. I'd forgotten about that.

My point was that the discussion was centering on an argument over whether or not this game was multiball on one side, while the other side was examining the motivations behind the discussion. PeregrineV was accusing Thor of being scum for bringing up multiball, but Thor was not claiming that PeregrineV was scummy because he disagreed. There was this cognitive dissonance between what Thor was saying and what everyone else involved seemed to be hearing. He's since explained this better than I can. (After all, I'm not in his head.)

Aneninen: I did understand. My vote is on PeregrineV right now, if you have not noticed. What was weak about my explanation?

Misunderstanding why I liked that post of Thor's is directly related to misunderstanding the nature of that post. That is, you looked at it only in the most superficial fashion. He was (as I interpreted it) indicating that PeregrineV's motivations were in question more than his stance on whether or not the game is multiball.

I don't. You specifically asked me a question and I replied from my specific PoV. Do you see where the context of Thor's case on PeregrineV differs from yours?

Yeah. It's a null tell that is, IMO, pro-town. Knowing who can talk to one another overnight is useful information. I'm not actually sure what part of this you are questioning?

Kinda hard to form any real opinion on it. I don't know where your reads are, am either null- or town-reading other players in the hood, and I am speaking from a different PoV than you are. (You already know your own role. I already know mine.) There's too many variables for me to make a judgement call on that statement other than saying it's wrong.

I hadn't really thought much of the hoods, to be honest. I still don't know exactly what to think, though I feel like knowing who is in what neighborhood will be useful later on.

Right now I've got a slight townread on TSO, a null read on Davesaz, and a null read on you. If I had to choose scum out of those three, I'd probably vote you. (My read hasn't changed markedly from my (), at least among my hood.)

Mostly gut, based on your interactions with Toby and Csareo initially. I disagree with your () and (), but they moved you out of an early scum read. (The alt-hater thing is not really alignment indicative, but I do have a thing against policy lynches.)

Since my initial read on you, you've slightly moved from minor scum to null-leaning-scum for a few things to do with TSO.

I fail to understand why you chose to include the bolded statement. It sounds like you want to intentionally include something that *could* be seen as pro-town just for the sake of appearances. I don't see why a town player would be so concerned about making sure this detail is on their ISO. As long as they can confirm that no information about the hood is being lied about, then what is it to a town player whether they or another player opened up about it?


Confirmation bias much? I said right in that post that I thought that the information was already out there. I wanted it in my iso so that when another player looks at my iso, the information is right there within my posts. You're tunneling into a molehill and making it out to be a mountain.

In post 39, Scripten wrote:Policy lynchers should be policy lynched.

Thor vote is serious.

In which you are saying you would policy lynch someone on the basis that they support policy lynches. This is like pushing for capital punishment on people who support capital punishment. Does someone else come along and policy lynch you for policy lynching someone who supports policy lynches? Where does this chain end? You're perpetuating the very thing you're trying to stop... and then now say you're against it?


You do realize that my 39 was contradictory within its own context, right?

Because it's a joke. If you read the next two posts after that, you might understand it a little better.

I can't give you any real specifics. I've never played with neighborhoods before. However, more information for town is usually a good thing. I also can't see the reveal being particularly anti-town, either. Unless scum get their own neighborhood (which seems like it'd be a little game breaking), they'll probably tell their team all about the composition of their individual hoods, anyway. While this may not cover every hood in the game, it would still be more information than town will have.

Current Events
Thor v. Nero Cain looks weird. I'm not sure I'm following what Thor was doing where he told Nero that he was buddying him, and I'm not sure why Nero took what Thor said as reason to vote him. (Yes, I realize that buddying is a scum tactic. I don't think it follows that claiming to be buddying someone is also a scum tactic.)

Axle's posts are really hard to read. Like.... super hard to understand. I don't think this is a scumtell, but it's definitely an annoying trait for any alignment. TSO doesn't read as scum to me, though I don't think his push on Aneninen is strong enough to justify a counter-wagon.

I can't really deny that I haven't been as proactive as I usually am. The large game isn't giving me the same level of reads that I can normally get, and engaging every single player is a lot more difficult. I do plan on talking directly to more players now that I have more time.

Ehhh... I called it out, but I'm not scumreading him too hard for it. Jumping on tiny things like that pushes mislynches. I disagree that it's worth calling it a scumslip.

P-Edit - TBH, even if it didn't have the "or not."

Eeeehhhhh.... not really. It's a weird statement, but I can just as easily see it coming from town as scum in either form. There's so much needling over tiny things this game that introducing another one isn't exactly good play.

I guess I just don't see the link between the size of the scumteam and whether or not the game has multiple scumteams. (Or are we including SKs in that definition?) Or are there other aspects I'm missing?

Also, time to engage some new peeps.

Aeronaut: You said you'd be back from VL/A yesterday. Any news on that front? I would like to see your thoughts on the various back-and-forths that have been coming around.

AxelGreaser: Do you find TSO backing off on his wagon to be alignment-indicative. If so, which way do you see it moving? Also, hypothetical question. Let's say you had to start a wagon on a player who's not got any votes on them currently. Who would you choose and why?

Boonskiies: You still feeling that Cho vote? I'd like to see you put your vote to use or at least push the person you're voting for. Frankly, I'd like to see Cho actually play the game, fwiw.

multiball is traditionally 2 mafia teams and that's the context that I've been using it in. Its a 21 player game and there's only going to be like 5 or 6 scum max. If its a 4 or 5 player team then you know there's not going to be another. If its 2 then you know there's going to be another. 3, maybe.

This is very basic game logic and I'm not sure this is a scum whine or a new player just being new and not understanding.


I've played in games that were larger and had a small scumteam with an SK or two to balance things out on other sites. I'm not wholly aware of normal setups here.

Hm. He mentioned Scripten's "current events" part in . It's strange that Scripten had left out plenty of things, eg. the TSO/Aneninen event. I wonder, why.


I mentioned it. I said that it was a bunch of tunneling that didn't give me any sort of alignment-indicative reads, save for the very end when TSO finally backed off on his case on you. I tried to ask AxleGreaser about it since he was also slightly involved in the interaction, but he just dodged the question.

In post 1373, TierShift wrote:Okay, scripten's ISO is weak as fuck. There's a distinct lack of opinions other than 'Pere is sooo scummy' for reasons unexplained. So scripten, I want those reasons now.

I've played with townscripten; he clearly explained his reads and had an opinion on everything. Not seeing that here.


Except that game was significantly different in context. It was, for one thing, a micro and not a large. Far fewer people to actually engage with. We also lost that game, and most likely in no small part due to my play. While meta isn't wholly useless, I don't think a 1-to-1 comparison is going to help much in this game, since I'm still relatively new and I'm constantly reassessing my playstyle.

Also, PereV felt obviously scummy to me. His naked vote and obvious sheeping of Izar (Who's been a fairly minor part of the game since.) were something, but it was really his reaction to Thor's push on him that made me vote him. The multiball discussion, at least from Thor's side, was not actually about multiball. It was calling out PereV on -really- scummy play. The more Thor pushed, the more PereV tried to keep the discussion on MB and setup speculation, just to push his idea that Thor should be auto-lynched if the game turned out to be multiball. I'm just amazed that so few people really caught on to it.

And yes, I realize that I'm mostly sheeping Thor's case. However, with there being so many people in this game, it's a lot tougher to push individual cases. I'm attempting to circumvent that by engaging players who have not really been pushed very much so far. I have a hunch that smarter scum will be lurking pretty hard this early on.

That is the weirdest shit I have ever seen in a Mafia game. It feels wrong.
(I am probably not going to be able to say why or what.)

I have read it several times since I got back. That is not helping.

I see it moving towards sleep, I need some of that.

@Anyone who happens to know (save me finding it)
What neighbourhood is TSO in?


...Are you serious? I'm asking you to tell me if you found anything alignment-indicative in a current event. That is not a weird question and there is absolutely no excuse not to answer it.

Also, answer the other part of my post. I'm NOT liking your play so far.

Okay, so you really voted pere for his reaction to thor's push. What exactly was scummy in his response other than 'lynch thor if MB'?


"Lynch Thor if MB" wasn't really the response. That was just what prompted it.

It was the way in which he responded in general. Notice how Thor and others (including myself) are saying that it doesn't matter if the setup is MB or, his push was wrong due to being based on non-alignment-related opinion. Eventually the conversation drifted into PereV's push and the way he would segue into talking setup whenever the topic drifted from it. Thor's () summarizes the deflective way PereV switched things around.

Hell, even when he made out like he was going to change the subject (), he just goes right back into speculation. We've got almost 60 pages of empty posts, potential scum that are hiding behind 1v1 arguments/tunneling (Scum love those!) and evasive/dodgy persons. PereV, (not just) in my opinion, has been fostering this atmosphere and reeks of scumminess for it.

Given that I only just stopped voting you the feeling would be mutual.

Scripten: "Also, hypothetical question. Let's say you had to start a wagon on a player who's not got any votes on them currently. Who would you choose and why?"

Well I did just start voting someone, who had no votes it was TSO. So if you are looking for me to provide original certifiably obviously non sheep input into the game that is it.
You could always read the thread carefully and see if I was me tooing in the other discussions or adding original input.

Whats the problem is TSO your buddy?


I have a townread on him, if that counts. I don't agree entirely on all of his wagons, but I think he'd be a mislynch. That's why I asked you to pick out someone scummy from the players who haven't got wagons yet. I wanted to pick your brain on the players that might be skating by.

Ta. for the neighbourhood thing, I had at some point searched and found that, and that does not seem like the kind of neighbourhood that could explain what seems to be a change in direction of TSO.
Time will tell.


The problem I'm finding with evasiveness is that how often scum can successfully hide in it, since it's so common for townies to play that way. It -should- be- a scumtell, to the extent that scum shouldn't be able to do it and get away with it, but it's not and that makes me frustrated. When I read your post for the first time, it seemed like you were calling my question "weird" and thus refusing to answer, so I responded aggressively to attempt to get a real answer out of you. Of course, since my reading comprehension failed so hard, I've got egg on my face right now.

That said, why would you expect a hood to change a player's direction, as you say?

discussing things in hood could from my external view, generate jumps and gaps in the flow/trajectory of a player.
any information exchange channel that i am unaware of might do that.

So might sitting down and thinking, whoops why did I xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <<< bunch of graphic imagery elided as pointless and tasteless.
So if TSO is the kind of player that can sit down and think oops all by himself, then I suppose no need for another channel.


I can help out here. I don't know about the other hoods (though it would make sense for them all to operate the same way), but ours does not have daytalk, so TSO either had another avenue of communication for what you suggest or came to his conclusion independently. I'm pretty sure it's the latter. Do you disagree?

@Scripten. I've checked it. Your gameplay here is very far from the one you were scum in. It's not a very strong alignment tell though. That game was a Newbie and this one is a Large Normal with 21 players and the total amount of finished games is quite low.


I said as much earlier. I don't really have time to go back and ISO myself for the quote, but I believe I was talking to Tiershift.

Meta is useful, but people's playstyles change based on context and, if they are aware of their meta, they can analyze what works and what doesn't to improve their game.

Also as that *only* backs of an interpretation of a set of three posts that should not from TSO claimed his case was have changed his whole read.

In post 1620, The Fonz wrote:I don't think Thor's the type to back off when he thinks he has scum in his sights. This means I think the counterwagon on him is bad. If PV's town, high likelihood Flubber is scum trying to get townie points for opposing a mislynch, and use it to subsequently persecute people on the wagon. That seems to me a fairly common scum replacement strat. Not sure I see that from a PV buddy though - for the same reasons, "Replace in and hardcore chainsaw your buddy's attacker" is a pretty rare and bold scum move.


I don't think Flubbernugget is scum. At least, I'm not getting scum vibes from him. He's working pretty hard on Thor, and not doing a fantastic job of it, true. But his viewpoint feels organic to me, mostly in terms of tone and the way he is pushing and retracting his points. I mean, compare and contrast his play with PereV's, and you can probably see where I'm coming from with my vote.

Aneninen: I think we have a pretty good wagon on PereV. Not sure how happy I am with either the wagon on you or Axle, but eh.

What? I think you misunderstand my post. I said it doesn't matter whether Thor or PereV is right about the setup. What matters is how they each interacted with one another. PereV's reaction to Thor pressing him about his statement that Thor would be scum if the game was MB felt pretty damn scummy, and the game setup has no bearing on it.

I'm trying to get a better read on PereV, but I'm not sure how well that's going to work.

I'm pretty neutral on that He changed his stances because I was battering the arguments. You'll note he walked away from me with no particular commentary about how he felt about it. That doesn't particularly vibe like townish ebb and flow. I'm not saying it's scummish either, but I don't get the town vibe.


I disagree. I don't really want to go ISO him again, but I remember seeing that he was scumhunting other people and generally interacting in a way that suggested that he hadn't just popped up to look like he was scumhunting you and left once he was out-maneuvered. In the last game I played with him, I was scum and drilled him really hard until he flipped town. Flubber being overwhelmed as town is perfectly understandable and this feels like how he would react under pressure in a large. It's not a strong town lean, but it's a bit more than null.

Four pages in less than a day, filled mostly with walls. Lovely. And my two biggest scumreads are voting each other. This quote bugs the hell out of me, though, so I think I know which one I think is not aligned with town.

In post 2647, Garmr wrote:@Axle you should vote me lets make this a 1v1 you and me.


VOTE: Garmr

It's like he sees how much Axle is prone to clogging up the thread with walls and wants to make it that much harder for us to wade through them. (*Cue incoming misrep claim*)

And can someone sum up what the hell is going on with the Boon/Iz/Anen/GM hood? All I'm getting is that Anen had a plan that a few of you sort of want to go through with, Boon is claiming a PR, and is also misrepping people from the hood. I'm getting a preliminary townread on the way Izar is treating the situation, but it may just be because I don't fully understand it.

It wasn't a town read either. I've been trying to figure out if his walls are a scum tactic for generating noise and making the game that much harder to play for the rest of us or just a playstyle thing. An (admittedly short) bit of meta research coupled with you egging him on made me scumread you harder, since it encouraged him to get into a tunnel-y 1v1 against you. So I voted you.

Not on you, but on Axle. What I saw from other town games of his looked consistent with his game here. Meta isn't perfect, but it was enough to figure out which to vote.

I don't equate a null-town read as a town read. I felt that you two are most likely not aligned with one another and that you were the more likely scum.

You, Axle, and Anen all had that walls of text thing going on all day 1. Anen had a bit of townie genuineness that neither you nor Axle seemed to show. When you pushed Axle to argue with you, I went to see if his town game would line up with the noise he's been putting out in this thread. When it did, I found your post to be calculated.

Actually, 1v1s just clog up the thread and make it really hard for town to legitimately scumhunt because their conversations are derailed onto the 1v1. I usually find tunneling to be done by town, but it's a legitimate scum tactic as well. It's a distraction, and since you seemed to realize this, I find you attempting to create another day of pointless tunneling to be scummy.

Because if you initiate and then stop - it's not a 1 v 1. It's a wagon that you are planning not to push.


Wait a second. Since when is initiating a 1v1 the same thing as pushing a wagon? I totally disagree that the two are one and the same, even if they share a few traits.

Are you saying that Garmr is just pushing a wagon when he goads Axle into fifteen straight pages of incoherent back and forthing?

The way I see it, there's two players in a 1v1. One or both are probably scum. Lynching Garmr and watching him flip scum won't clear Axle, but I am more confident that, if only one of those two is scum, then Garmr is it.

In post 2688, Thor665 wrote:Are you saying that Garmr is just pushing a wagon when he goads Axle into fifteen straight pages of incoherent back and forthing?

I don't see what difference this is other than saying that you don't like how he is pushing a wagon. I see little value in debating word choice over it.[/quote]

I don't think he's really pushing a wagon, tho. He's got a vote out and he's initiating an argument, but 1v1-ing just doesn't seem pro-town.

TSO: Are you sure you don't want to take a ride on the Garmr wagon instead? Just think, you get to spend all day interacting with him! It'll be a party.

I don't have a strong read on him because I've only played one game with him on this site. (We've played off-site before, but the meta there was a lot different.) More than that, I was scum with him last game we had together and tunneled him to death, so approaching him from a different mindset is difficult.

I love it when my scumreads pretty much out themselves. Garmr's replace out is not alignment-indicative, but that opportunistic vote on Thor is just icing on the scum-cake.

That said, I'm a little bothered by Garmr's jump onto Thor's wagon. It -definitely- does not read as a bus attempt, so Thor is either town or, at least, scum/3rd-party not aligned with scum-Garmr. (Sorry, bringing up multiball again... :P ) It makes me feel like the Thor wagon should migrate over to Garmr for today.

In post 3461, TierShift wrote:Saying he is caught scum is quite an overstatement, anyway.

Which makes me worry about this quote.

Tiershift, why so singleminded for the Thor wagon? I mean, I was starting to like it, but Garmr's recent actions must have been enough to get you onto his wagon. Do you really find his replacing out to be -that- alignment-indicative. I'm all for waiting for his replacement to see if miracles occur, but this makes that Thor wagon look mighty wrong to me.

Actually, I'd respond to those points which hold a decent amount of water like the ones I've highlighted above. I wouldn't want to give other town players reason to doubt my motivations and mislynch me, since that would be pro-scum. I wouldn't summarily dismiss the entire case because I feel myself above it, since that would probably distract from finding actual scum.

Thor: Well it helped me settle my read on you, so there's that. I get that you're a pretty good player, but sometimes walking through points can be useful to those of us who aren't you. I don't think anyone in the game has memorized the play/actions of every other player. For instance, I thought that Izar's point on you stalling was not only limited to your 1v1 with Muffin.

How come you seem to have a town read on Garmr's slot, Thor? You didn't find his play today to be suspect?

Flubber: "To win the game, you must join the Garmr wagon." ;)

That said, I'm a little bothered by Garmr's jump onto Thor's wagon. It -definitely- does not read as a bus attempt, so Thor is either town or, at least, scum/3rd-party not aligned with scum-Garmr. (Sorry, bringing up multiball again... :P ) It makes me feel like the Thor wagon should migrate over to Garmr for today.

I'm not really looking to make a compromise, but if Garmr is town, then I would probably most support a GM or, less so, a Flubbernugget wagon. Starting to wonder about the quiet slots, too, but then, lurkers are always suspicious.

In post 3639, Izariael wrote:Missing a third alternative where Garmr is town and Thor is scum. Never mind that option 2 is also a viable vote for Thor.


Sure, that's possible, but I don't think it's likely. Not really ready to vote even minor town reads in lieu of a stronger scumread.

Explain this, please. What scum do you see on Garmr's wagon, then? What I saw was Boonskiies wagon dissolving and the Garmr wagon coming out of Garmr, y'know, being scummy.

Thor is weird and I sometimes don't like his play but I think he's town. I can't really come up with a solid case on him being scum, and I can see town motivation in some of his actions, or at least a tone that suggests town, but he has a habit of being super opaque and stubborn that bugs me.

First of all, sorry about the wall. A lot of my case revolves around the trajectory of Garmr's posts, and without examples, I won't have any context to go on.

Everyone can be sorted into three mind sets town,third party and scum. I operate from a scum mindset (In any game) and that changes the way I hunt for scum. Basically my filters different but it has worked in past games. Because of that I enjoy scum games more and if you look into my past scum games you can see the effort and time I put into each masterpiece. I'm currently trying to improve my town game since I feel like I mastered scum and tbh to me it looks like you have town mindset playing a scum game. People with town mindsets tend to have difficulty hiding flaws as scum.



anyway

some reads I haven't really talked about.

Scripten
- I don't know what think of this guy his post are dull and i'm curious about his defenation of town cred is and why anyone who is voting him would get it. and tbh his vote on pere looks like a little bit of a off. null-scum

EGG- Egg is a weird read I like some of his posts(452 for example) even through I don't agree with his conclusions (his veiw on pere). But him being wrong doesn't make him scum -I feel comfortable placing him as town.

davesaz- tbh he has a lot of wording in his post and I don't like some of conclusions. In my eyes he hasn't really impacted the game so null.

Err this makes no sense. I suggest you go back and think that thought again.

I talk about fferlyt trajectory in terms of failing to follow the recent thread, as a natural flow, (also as it wont have been clear so far) while TSO is in the center of that feel.
That has no (known) connection to multiball.

Once you brought up multiball, in
I did also talk about multiball and say
"Yeah if its multiball, rather lot of common tells go away. Scum can still however be faking it, as survival is stronger instinct in scum as there are fewer of them scum hunting has risks, if you personally start pinging on guys in the other scum team they may NK you as a seemingly dangerous townie. So scum in multiball (I hypothsise) still will play different, but it will be harder to find them but there will be more of them?
Also at least one multiball scum player wants to be the one scum under the radar player the other team cant find."

That bit has no "fferlyt trajectory" in it

and finally even if it did appeal to your authority is bad logic.

This is getting weird again. What kind of weird, I don't know.
As I am not pushing this exchange in any useful direction (I think I am being responsive) I suggest we stop unless you are getting something out of it.


Your right it won't further the game state But I am interested in interacting with you, I find it easier to understand someone if I'm interacting with them but I guess that was a awkward attempt to start an interaction because to be honest I don't know what subject to start with and I been trying to think of something for a while. So I'm going to reach out to you for this.

In post 1559, Garmr wrote:@Pere and thor

I think I'm falling asleep with this thor vs Pere thing can't you two resolve this.
You could put up a final case on each other then wait for like 3-6 days while focusing on other things then come back after providing reads and pushing other people. Whats the point of clogging up day 1 with just a case on one person. Your just filling walls upon walls and you stop addressing your views on other people with this tunneling.

It means the fact that tso gave in ruined my image of him. I had a image that tso took no shit and stood for what he believed in like me but the fact he caved into thor so easily ruined that image of him.

In post 2517, Garmr wrote:UNVOTE: ane


VOTE: pere

Because I don't want a no lynch


So, to summarize, let's take a look at a few points.

- Garmr has spent the whole game interacting almost exclusively with other players who were obviously either VI or wall-builders.
- Notably, he's mostly spent the game pushing on Axle, Anen, and occasionally Csareo early on.
- If you look in the spoiler above, you'll notice how he calls Thor out for tunneling PereV, but he wants to tunnel Axle D2!
- Waffles on several players for doing certain things, then does the exact same thing not that much later on.
- Again, go to the spoiler for examples, but pay specific attention to his interactions with TSO and Thor.
- Garmr pushes an Anen case almost all of D1, but he backs off before it actually could have led to a townie lynch. He spends most of D1 and D2 pushing Axle and helps clog up the thread instead. (He even admits that he's not trying to push the game state!)

Now, can we lynch scum and call it a day? There's no point in lynching even a soft-claimed power role at this point in the game.

And yet people say that there's no scum motivation in replacing out. (I personally think it's kind of a gambit in poor taste. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen, though.)

I don't understand why Thor just refuses to vote Garmr when his scumreads are based on such weak criteria.

Technically, that would be Thor, for reasons I've stated before, but alright.

Basically, I find GM's play to be empty (hilarious that she's calling me useless) and with Thor's claim, her case on him is just not looking good. Feels like there may be scum motivation there. Beast is just not feeling at all useful. I don't usually push for policy lynching lurkers, but that slot just... ugh. Also, Heph was totally scum in Open 570 and acted just like he did here before he was replaced. Slandaar's play is weird and I'm not sure if I like it, but I don't think he's past my lynch candidate line.

GM: JoshB, you, and Beast are my top scumreads atm, in basically that order. Also, do you think fake-doublevote is useless just because Thor is experienced? If I'm not mistaken, it's totally within Reinoe's playstyle to do a real doublevote quickhammer, so him faking it is possible, too. Not really WIFOM, either, unless you think Thor and Reinoe are a scumteam and Reinoe is trying a crazy gambit to pull votes off of Thor. (I don't.)

He fake-hammered someone, they had Thor's reaction, and they were town.

He claims that Thor is scum because he did what another player did in the same situation as town.

Which is pretty dumb, not gonna lie.

Thor: Agreeing with the sentiment being shown here. If you're a one-shot JKer and you've expended your power already, why wait to claim?

And why use your power this early in the game? It seems like waiting until at least one scum had flipped would have been better play, but I'm a newbie, so maybe I'm not seeing it.

Thor: I kinda have to do more work than you, and I had a meeting. Now that I'm back, I'll post my reads.

Thor665: goodmorning, Izariael, reinoe, Flubbernugget, davesaz, Josh_B, Boonskiies, Shiro, Nero Cain(Intent)

If Thor is town:
- davesaz, Josh_B, and Boonskiies are in the prime scum slots on a wagon (If those slots are similar to smaller games.)
- Nero Cain's push for Thor to claim and immediate backing off is a little suspicious. Reads like rolefishing rather than pushing the game state.
- Goodmorning is likely scum, since she started the wagon, but hasn't pushed it nearly as hard as others on it.

If Thor is scum:
- Shiro is likely scum. Thor pushed him when the day started, but never really built up much of a wagon on him. Would be a pretty by-the-book bus attempt.
- Nero Cain is a little less suspicious in this case.

Regardless of Thor's flip, I see Izariael and reinoe as town for their play when interacting with the wagon. Goodmorning could potentially be scum, though I'd like to see more from her in light of recent events before making a call.

Thor? Your turn, if you would please.

Disagree? Show I'm wrong. Muffin and Izar took up the majority of the case; that puts you in a prime scum-leading-town slot. Of course, you only really have to worry about that if you know Thor is town.

Alright, so here's what happened in the thread:

1 - Nero and I discuss our reads (Davesaz shows up to give some reads as well during this time.)
2 - We start wondering where the hell TSO is, and I suggest that perhaps he forgot to read his PMs. (Nero mentions that lurking up the night is a scum tactic.)
3 - TSO -finally- shows up, asks if we all can talk about Anen.
4 - Nero says "no" and tells TSO to tell him about Fonz and Garmr.
5 - I'm expecting this to just cause everyone to clam up, so I mention that there's less than a day left to the night at this point, and ask them to exchange reads or something. (I also specifically ask TSO about Anen here)
6 - TSO says he's on an iPad and can't really post; Nero asks me who I'm talking to, and I explain that I'm expecting them to butt heads. Considering their playstyles, I was expecting them to clash and for nothing to get done.
7 - Deadline comes and the topic is still open, so I say that I expected our private topics to be closed at the time the night expired. Dave says that the deadline is only for orders.
8 - Nero says that he doesn't like what I'm saying in the thread. I ask why, and he says it's because I'm trying to play mediator in an argument that didn't exist.

There's some sort of disconnect here going on between me and Nero and it's frustrating.

This is pedantic. It does not help your case on Thor.
