Okay, here are my answers to my own questions.
: I at first thought he made a really derpy scum slip by saying he prefers playing as town (1), but then assigns the numerical value of “1 out of 10” to his enjoyment thus far to this game (5). After taking a moment to think I realized that being a NU would most likely effect his enjoyment. Despite giving me very basic responses he has remained consistent with his answers, which is good. My only nitpick was that I was really hoping for more of a response to question (3) then “No”. Also like how he was the first to submit answers, I find that town are more likely to contribute to this first, while scum hang back to see if it catches on or not. Town.
: I interpreted her responses as light hearted and playful (looking at 2 and 4). Which I attribute towards somebody with little stress. I don’t know Maria well enough to know if she can maintain that level of naturalness as both alignments. I do think her mixing basic terminology is reflective of somebody unafraid of getting called out on petty issues, which I see more coming from a town mindset. I might even say the same thing for (1) and (5) lined up. Maria’s (3) isn’t much better then Snakes. She also submitted answers before cut off. Town lean.
: There appears to be some mutual level of trust between Gamma, and Snake looking at both responses at (4). I like his response alright. Not confident enough on reading Gamma, he has witnessed me doing RQS before, and is much more likely to know what I want to hear. Even him telling people that I am much more inclined to do this as town then scum doesn’t help because he knows how much I like being town read. Null.
: Sorry, I’m docking town points for making your first post being a response to my questions. Popular opinion is that RQS helps scum blend in, the thing is that a scum who hasn’t posted in the thread proper before RQS is initiated is more likely to submit answers to RQS before contributing to anything else in the game state. RQS was pretty much the first thing that Nn30 responded to. Answers to (2) and (3) aren’t good, I’ve learned that making a funny instead of actually answering a question (3) isn’t as big a scum tell as I thought, but I still consider it to be scummy. I don’t like (2) because nn30 references multiple games that are similar to mafia in (5), if he has some experience with those then he would have a decent idea how he’ll fair in mafia imo. I do like his enthusiactic (5) tho. scum lean.
: He is clearly underestimating my ability to read between the lines. He didn't submit answers to the set, but I value peoples reactions to RQS
, and use them as part of my RQS analysis. I find that it is common for scum planning to go deep to try and play the “voice of reasoning”, they’ll either treat me like mislead town and correct me, or they’ll correct me while throwing a light scum read my way. Often the ones who choose to paint me as misleading scum are not going to push me. The ones opting to town read me will dig their heels in when I, or they, are questioned about their stance. Clearly Zoronos is falling into the first category. He insists RQS is pro-scum, throws out a light scum read my way, but doesn’t show any desire to push said scum read. In fact if appears that he is back tracking in his next post. If in this instance Zoronos is scum there is a good chance that he is the ‘leader’ of his posse, and that his scum buddies are less experienced players then he is. Scum.
: Not a big fan of her responses. Mainly that she seems really guarded in (3) and (4), and also seems insecure at (2). The combination of the two leave a bad taste in my mouth. I’m also noticing boring’s habit of openly underestimating, and down playing her capabilities. I haven’t seen her town games so I have no idea if she does this as both alignments. Null leaning scum.
Lil Uzi Vert
: Really guarded and unhelpful. He has played like this as town before though, so it’s hard to anylse this dude. I will say that I expected him to be more verbose with his stance evasion. This is also the first post of his provide content since a naked RVS vote, so that docks some town points. Null I guess.
: He responded to others before submitting answers to my questions. Which says to me that he isn’t occupied with trying to look busy. His answers themselves are okay as well, nothing looks guarded in anyway. Town lean.
: Given his experience he will most likely gravitate towards a null read here for a while. I like his answers, they were nice and open, but I can’t ID anything that reads specify town or maf from it. I still don’t like how he wanted an analysis without submitting his own answers too. That would be like telling me to go play basket ball without providing me a ball first. Null.
: Really bad. He at first avoids submitting his answers without providing legitimate reasoning why he doesn’t want to. Then later he does out of the blue. I particularly didn’t like how he says “since everybody else is doing it I should too”. It is very scummy to do something just because it is popular; it shows a desire to blend in. As for his answers, (1) reads like wanting pity, and (3) is a guarded answer. Scum.
So I'm looking as something like:
EagerSnake, MariaR, ShadowStep,
Gamma, Implosion, Lil Uzi Vert,
^with over 3/4's of roster involved in this reads list there is a good chance that all three scum are here. Typically once RQS takes off (more then half the roster submits something) the scum that would normally stay out of it decide its a good Idea to band wagon. Which effectively means I have light town reads on Deirfire, and Slander. What a good turnout.
