Hi how about you go fuck yourself?

All the mods of this game agree with me, don't blame me for being the one with the balls to say it.

For what it's worth, I think you played an excellent game, Bella. A large part of the spectators' criticisms of your game stemmed from you rarely using your confessional, but from what I've learned from xof after the game, you knew what was going on and had things planned out far better than it appeared you did from your confessional.

In post 52, xRECKONERx wrote:Bella was fine playing except that she seemingly wanted to take you to the end. Without her using her confessional much she seemed to lack some game awareness w/r/t you specifically. And even Lor said "I will take Ysera to the end even though she'd win"... so it was a little grating seeing people so seemingly unaware or willing to throw their game to you.

Nothing about Karass's play was under fire, other than the notion she'd take the biggest threat in the game to FTC. Granted, we couldn't see everything Karass was doing. Based on what we thought was going on, yup, we thought it looked pretty dumb.

Direct quote from me: "my biggest problem with karass potentially winning is that she seemed fully willing to go with ysera to the end because "im a [expletive] threat too" even though all signs show she would have lost in a blowout." From all that we could see, I thought Karass planned on taking Ysera to the end, and knowing that she didn't plan on that makes me view her win in a much more positive light.

I accept responsibility for a lot of the toxicity, and a lot of that stems back to issues I've said ever since PSV, where Shadow and xof aligned and made it to F3 together, and Bella voted herself out. It's impossible to prove how someone makes decisions, and it's unfair to ever jump to quick judgments. But I can't help but be concerned when I see quotes like:
"Is Karass seriously Bellaphant?! That can't be right, she doesn't play two games in a row usually.
Maybe she has a twin hot british sister that's PMing me in her voice."
then a few hours later:
"WHY COULDN'T YOU PAIR ME WITH KARASS"
or:
"Oh good we booted Klick so this game can ACTUALLY BE A CHALLENGE THANKS

yesssssssssssssssssss finally a game I enjoy!"
"I was checking other games to see their pony scores and sure enough in RSX Klick got over 100k points.
Get outta here buddy let someone else play!"

It's not even that I'm specifically zeroing in on things you say, Shadow. I also posted in the spectator forum that I had a huge problem with this post from Aronis:
"Also Abathur's identity is Skelda. So as long as I just avoid giving him/her any information I want to remain confidential, things should go great between us."

In the end, I don't think you mean any harm by saying any of that, and in general I'm against casting people together who would be able to ID each other easily (for example, I would never cast Ceph/STD together after Eon and that's because I know it's impossible for them not to figure out who the other one is). It isn't just something I'm focusing on you for doing, Shadow, and I think you're still a great player. It's unfortunate that all of this has built up in such a way, but it has to be addressed at some point.

For me, the only thing that needs to be countered for sure is relationships where someone ALWAYS IDs the other without fail. Every game Shadow and Bella have been in after PSV, Shadow has correctly identified Bella pretty quickly, and that's something that can't really be disputed.

I have no idea what should be done about that, you just gotta throw ideas out there. It's not like this is some new concept though, Flameaxe and peg weren't cast together dating all the way back to Season Finale for this very reason.

Twist: you get one guess at everyone's identities, and if 5 people get the same person's identity, that person gets eliminated :O :O :O :O :O

For what it's worth, the application for Ned's Declassified had a section for people to list anyone they can habitually ID easily or people that routinely ID them
