i'm taking that 100% seriously

no sarcasm

also since RVS is over and other reasons (early game I don't like to give reasoning for most of my actuons because it helps develop my reads), i suggest not answering TB's RQS

Will you be making a vote today?

If so, who will it be?

What are your thoughts on the current gamestate?

Did ThinkBig slip that you're his partner?

I can see myself as tunneling, but Schadd? His vote doesn't seem that aggressive to me.

plus idk if this is really the point in the gamestate where someone can be tunneling as town, not everyone has posted so you're still forced to read every slot that makes sense

Unless you're insinuating I'm scum going for an overblown push and preemptively going for the confbiased-townie archetype?

felt like TB's vote would be a good discussion point so that votes wouldn't have to be random. force people to take sides and good stuff like that

i kind of overestimated that potential

honestly rvs is more of a state of mind than a finite stage so usually when people say "rvs is over" it's not serious or at least subjective to whoever said that

i don't really see TB town but scumreads don't really matter, especially in a small game

5 correct townreads is enough to solve a 9 player game and I usually am pretty close D1

^ scummy RQS question IMO

like i would think in a newbie game, a newer player may kind of be off guard and, if they actually HAVE a PR, might have special interest in that role that shows when they answer the question

just gives me rolefishing vibes :dead:

plus none of the questions were that open-ended and like setting a baseline for how people answer questions directed to them is one of the best ways of using rqs

i should know, i caught my first scum with RQS :good:

1. RQS stands for Random Questioning Stage which is basically is what TB started. It's an alternative to RVS that's rarely seen outside of newbie games because most people don't make good RQSs and RVS is much easier to work with.

2. Why wouldn't TB do that? I would just assume he'd do it if he was scum but there wasn't anything personality-wise that makes me think he wouldn't try that as scum. Also, why do you think someone would lie about an RQS answer? like yeah i guess the PR they'd name is effectively random but nothing is truly random (and having a different role PM is a significant bias) :/

what i mean about that is how your kinda felt like the "well there's no hard evidence they're scum but if you can give me a paragraph long case in a chat format within like 10 seconds i'll consider it" which has been the death of my scumhunting on that site :dead:

can see people finding it scummy because original thought processes are generally pro-town

pedit: yeah creature basically covered it but i think the point about how it's not really common is important too

What do you mean?

also if you don't like something I would vote for that person, having no vote is generally unhelpful since votes are completely fluid and voting for mafia is the only way to get rid of them (of course that's a subjective opinion but i think experience will show you it's pretty true)

note that usually our lynches are majority (not plurality) and the day doesn't end as soon as everyone's voting like in PS! so there's very little harm in voting for someone

yeah that's not really suspicious here in most contexts

we have like 2 weeks to go at this and people have work and school and lives in general so usually just checking in and making a few posts is typical

i don't feel his engagement in the game is bad either, like an example of where that would be suspicious is if there were more things to talk about, like dueling wagons or something

In post 105, Creature wrote:I have 4 townreads, if you add me, it's 5v4.


so i'm townreading someone you're not

GAYreen's engagement with me felt super genuine and i think as scum he would know not to point out the tracker soft and wait to tell his partner about that because he'd be thinking about nightkills instead of lynches. felt more like town derp

You're really obvtown here. The "this game is going to be hard" comment just pinged me as super chicken little town which is classic town!Creature especially

Rask I'm vibing with really hard here and just feel spiritually connected to him here. their game here so far is probably within their scum range but it feels way more town than not so. dunno how else to word it

i liked matt's vote and his first few posts, felt like he had an idea of how to start scumhunting and his questions were pretty legit for a newbie

schadd's voting the closest thing i have to a scumread and did it on his own volition. plus his reasoning for the vote is decent enough for the point of the gamestate we're in. good tone too

not in any order but that's where i'm at

honestly it's a subjective thing

like i'd make the argument in most games that it's bad to do early in a newbie because the newbies who haven't posted yet will know how to adapt to the players in the game to be townread

but with a slow gamestate like this talking about anything is the only way we can really move forward

GAYreen (and any of the newer players here), have you read any games on here? It might be a good idea to see what's considered scummy/townie (if you don't already have a sense) or just get an idea of how a game usually goes.

Newbies are typically really slow like this but there are a few good ones out there too.

:dead: :dead: (type in dead between colons to be just like me :dead: )

you can get a good deal of posts if you view one person's ISO but yeah it's not the same.

i can kind of sympathize with not trusting townreads after a hard scum loss (read newbie 1718 :dead: ) but honestly losses like that are the best teacher like that. What do you make of Rask btw? They're my most gutty/weird read so maybe some thoughts both ways could help develop that

also that's a boards of canada avatar right

Do you recommend any games in particular? I've read a little bit of day 1/day 2 from a game, but games are so long that it's hard to really read through a full game.


Off the top of my head, I thought Newbie 1741 was a good game (relatively active town, quirky characters, good thought processes from both sides). It's good enough I wouldn't want to spoil the ending tbh

1746 is my only scumgame so if you want to see that in action that's there. it's more of a "what-not-to-do" sort of read though, town fucked it up pretty badly there because they took too long to do anything useful D1 and rushed D2. looking town there wasn't hard for me to do at all and I didn't even have to bus my partner who asked to be bussed in our pt :dead:

1759's my most recent town game that's finished but it's kind of a shit read

1735 was kind of crazy but not really a newbie game, lots of replacements early on and older players took most of those slots. still an interesting game

i tend to skim like every game on this site that's ongoing whenever i'm online so i have a general vibe of most people on here

i've townread some of your scumplay before so i don't really think it's a far-fetched conclusion though. i think the scum games of yours i remember was that Open with Lycanfire and that newbie with rXJr where i did have you as a townread in both :dead:

there's nothing wrong with having your own reads even if they go against the grain you know.... like it's fine you agree with our points but i feel like you're being a little too sheepy

like normally i'd be scumreading you for that but A: I kind of know your play as scum and it doesn't feel like it here, and B: your pointing out the soft was just really derptown

Creature (especially town!Creature) usually feels like that the first time you play with him. I do like that you're more inquisitive/neutral about it rather than trying to push on it, especially considering how lynchbaity creature can be sometimes.

I'm weak with analysis and generally play with overblown gut but I'm liking the route you're going with

numbers added

1. what's a quotestripper? :wink:
2. uh, nothing in particular. there's just a bunch of stuff (almost a third of posts in the thread) and it's more that you haven't screwed up than that you have done anything remarkably genuine
3. i only emotions'd once, as scum. i think it's easy to fake, since people tend to sound silly when they're angry anyway. it surely depends on rask's precedent, tho


1. Someone whose posts are usually long walls with bits of quotes and responses. Like if I write a big wall, a quotestripper would quote maybe each sentence or two and respond to it (or put a bunch of quotes in one post). :laugh:

2. :? .... how exactly would I "screw up"? like outright scumslip or

3. Really? Most people (especially tone readers) usually believe that some degree of emotion is possible to fake as scum, but usually you can tell if someone is being genuine if you know what to look for. Like Rask's emotions feel really natural and reasonable considering their contexts (his annoyance at me saying that his play was within his scumrange probably, his reaction to TB's claim) to me. Scum might react more... obviously? (like they might state "ugh i'm pissed that..." and not really show their emotions as much through tone)

oh matt i forgot to mention

i definitely think a pr would claim pr, getting lynched as provable town is way worse than nk'd

plus if he's scum and claims pr he can bait the real pr to claim (or get away with a fake-claim). you're kind of close with your logic here actually, a PR only shouldn't CC D1. Always claim your real role at L-1 (and are town) unless you absolutely know what you're doing

It only applies for investigatives (maybe jailkeepers?), but basically the logic is they can still hide while there's a second ML and get a result and then claim the start of the next day

So let's say Scum claims Tracker at L-1, but there's really just a single cop (no doctor). The cop knows for a fact that the tracker is scum and can investigate a likely partner (a guilty leads to autowin here) and then get them lynched the next day (or in LYLO). There's also the added boon that you dying in the night is still basically a guilty (in the long run it'd probably be better to cc if you're just relying on this hut we're not). If they CC'd instantly, you'd get your scum lynch most likely (we rarely keep contradicting PR claims alive. maybe doctors or BPs in this set-up?) but then you miss out on the potential autowin from a second guilty.

In post 213, Shade wrote:Why would you vote someone to get them lynched, that soon in the game?


If you have a scumread (you think someone is more likely to be mafia based on their posts and your perception of their motivations), then it's simply playing to win to vote to have them lynched. The only reason, at least to me, to withhold your vote is if you're not ready to end the day with a hammer and claim.

I'm assuming that by asking that, (if this is not true then you can ignore this question) that there's a reason you believe I shouldn't have voted TB in that instant? If so, why?

In post 213, Shade wrote:This means that you can be mafia as well? I was assuming it's 1 newbie/1 SE team, isn't it? [after reading 80 I guess not]


I know this was for creature but i kind of want to comment on it :dead:

the game would focus way too much around optimal play and be too townsided (favoring town wins) if it were always 1 newbie/1 SE. Basically you'd just have to lynch all 2 or 3 SEs and then let the NKs confirm 1-2 newbies as town, and then leave the rest of the game to the remaining 3 newbies. kinda defeats the purpose of the game i feel. (if the team is in fact two newbies, godspeed. i've seen a few of newbie-newbie teams do really well but rolling scum for your first game without knowing how to town must really suck :( )

In post 213, Shade wrote:If there are several behaviors that are already known as scummy, why would any scum do them? Unless if you're saying a newbie might do them when they're scum which contradicts with your action - pointing them out to them.

Anyway as I said I have someone close who plays this so I know about some of these behaviors you're talking about.


Scum are inherently lying about the information they have when they play Mafia and also win the game in a different manner than Town. Basically playing this game is looking for people who are trying to hide those two things from the rest of us.

Sometimes for people first picking up this game, it's hard to really understand what someone lying about information they have looks like (maybe less so for having different motives when reading newer players but it's not always intuitive) over text. This leads to a lot of players looking for a lot of bad (in my opinion) universal tells, like "OMGUS" (voting/suspecting someone because they suspect you, which I think can be a valid reason to vote someone if you think their reasoning isn't genuine) or being over-defensive (Nobody wants confirmed town to die because that doesn't help town win at all. Survival shouldn't be your biggest priority but some people (like me lol) are really bad to reacting to pressure). Reading past games where you can see other players in your position go through the motions might help jumpstart the right thought process, and also let you see what scum in different skill levels look like.

A general understanding of psychology (not like actual psychology, but being able to put yourself in one's shoes and ask why they would do something from their vantage point) and some emotional intelligence goes a long way in scumhunting.

In post 213, Shade wrote:Thinkbig is not a newbie so if its known that people must claim after an intent on MS, him claiming there is actually scummy.


tbh i think newbies give the SE title too big of an importance it really is... I would definitely consider TB a newer player (and myself too) so it's kind of believable. Still weird and warrants explanation though imo.

In post 213, Shade wrote:What is the meaning of sheepy?


You've heard people call others "sheeple" right? Like someone who is a sheep just follows whatever big voice there is out there. Sheepy's just an adjective to describe someone who is a sheep.

Sheeping (the act of being a sheep) isn't extremely scummy imo but I think that newbie scum having trouble parsing the thread to make legitimate looking reads might mimic other player's reads. I do, however, strongly believe that GAYreen is town so by saying that I was just pointing out that he shouldn't be afraid to develop his own thoughts (which we clearly saw he had). After all, this is game is as cooperative as it is competitive, so not being sheepy and producing your own original thoughts and analysis is ultimately going to help which ever team you're on.

In post 213, Shade wrote:Their either mafia who claimed like that in first place or is really a Vanilla Town who is compromised to mafia. Going in other directions will probably help mafia in their PR haunt and I don't like that.


Yeah I'm kind of uncomfortable with this too.

Like I had a scumread on TB, yes, but now I feel like the entire gamestate revolves around me having an accurate read page 1 and if I ended up botching it for town it'll hurt us in the long run. This would be an example of why claiming at L-1 with intent is important...

honestly it's not as strong as i made it out to be

i kind of hope this was implied through my iso but it was like 60% posture 40% actual read, i figured acting like i had a really strong read would help divide the town and get better reads by having people take sides

starting controversy generally is a good way to get information but when people aren't interested it kind of fizzles out and doesn't help anyone :dead:

i do typically get reads on people off of 1 or 2 posts though but they're seldom lock-reads. being able to adjust your reads to the gamestate is probably one of the most important parts of play as either alignment.

emotional vibing, liked his TB vote early game, i think his calling TB's claim calculated looks like genuine analysis, general approach to the game feels like town with like 1 game of experience off-site

but i'm kind of at a point where i have to pick two in {schadd, shade, matt} to be very confident in their townieness to get that game-winning townbloc (very confident in rask, you, and GAYreen town)

or i could just scumhunt but i honestly want to get a baseline of everyone's personality first, i'm ass at scumhunting but i don't think an overemphasis on townhunting is the right approach this game like usually works out to be, feels too slow? :dead:

that doesn't seem like a particularly scummy post to me, he could just be too busy to figure out how to jumpstart this game as town. i'm struggling to do it myself

do you think rask has a particular reason to avoid this game as scum? i think he's only in like 1 other game anyway

This is a url to the game in question btw

Just from the bits we've seen of Rask I feel a lot more emotional depth coming from him but i also haven't fully reviewed this game to make a super strong meta-read

i mostly followed this one up to D1 and also looked at the very end because i planned on replacing into Zyf's slot but nexus told me that pre-game subs have to be given to you by Mina (they're taken directly from the queue) :dead:

In post 252, Shade wrote:Can you explain your line of thinking please? I really like to see how you will explain your reads.


On the townreads or why I need 2 to basically win?

On needing 2 more townreads, basically my townread on Creature is based on a really bulletproof (at least so far) tell in seeing how engaged he is in a game; Rask has posts like , , and all have this naturalness to them in reaction time and tone that I think scum, who already know everyone's alignment, have a difficulty faking; GAYreen because I think from what little I've played with him has this naivety that reads really strongly as curious town (when I played against him as scum, most of his attention was focused on discrediting the townbloc i was forming while coasting and not really scumhunting, which was key to him winning). These are all really strong reads that I don't see myself being wrong on, while my townreads on you, schadd_, and matt I think are likely true but I think based on schadd_'s experience and just my general idea of the three of your personalities can possibly be wrong (and also the easiness of the game if we just found all the town and the scum were everyone else).

from a game theory perspective (i.e., why you basically need 5 townreads that are correct to win although it's technically 4), we have 2 mislynches before XYLO (i use this as a cross between LYLO and MYLO). this means if i correctly identify 4 other townies, then i theoretically can just powerlynch the other slots and win the game 100% of the time. Having 5 to really focus in on though is even safer because we can't always just speedlynch scummy slots (and taking it slow enough gives you time to form associative reads).

also the point that we obviously could be wrong about TB is why we want to know his thoughts regardless of alignment and why him being the leading wagon is going to stall the game

he's reading the game with the perspective he's confirmed town, so if he's actually town this is a perspective we need. if he's scum then we get a thought process we can scrutinize and either we lynch him because it seems scummy or he gets the chance to maybe be let off the hook if his POV reads as valid enough to not lynch (although as we already discussed with the claim this is probably a bad idea).

i say shade over rakkar because someone who's active and can respond to pressure (and for rakkar if it's shade/rakkar, is a buddy worth saving)

but the question for the audience here is why shade over TB

basically I think Shade looks the worst from a TB townflip, while his questions were good (the ones you quoted I did like), I felt they were more like... questions asking about the game itself rather than questions to find motivation? He seems really hyperfocused on TB to me but his thought process/what questions he comes up with doesn't seem to follow that mindset

In post 213, Shade wrote:@Raskolnikov why you tried to put him in L1 if you didn't want him to claim?

GAYreenHamster was kinda opportunistic there as well but they didn't vote.

Thinkbig is not a newbie so if its known that people must claim after an intent on MS, him claiming there is actually scummy.


just seems like he's trying to parse things that are scummy, but the fact that collectively they don't seem to mesh right to me. He could argue it's TB/GAYreen from this, but the question to Rask reads in a way where he wants to find it suspicious so that angle doesn't make too much sense.

it implies scum mindset because he (at least where i stand in reads) can't be scum with TB and knows he flips town if he's scum, so this looks like he's setting up the right direction to push after the flip.

{TB, Shade, rakkar} probably contains both scum, but TB/Shade are unlikely partners. in theory rakkar is the right lynch, but I figured voting for the towniest of the three would

pedit: damn it rasko i wanted to point it out :(

also creature it's open 651

I don't really follow what you are saying here. Aren't the more active players more likely to be town, because contributing as town as a direct positive correlation to our goal? And aren't the players that are lurking, and not contributing much more likely to be scum, because they don't want to help the town figure out the puzzle? (sorry for my previous post, but I tried to post this 3 times and it wasn't going through!)


Mostly, yeah, but scum also care about survival, and to do that they need to look town. I think Shade is capable of at least getting close.

dunno how much consolidation it is but i get reads really quickly sometimes

here's another newbie where i was pretty spot-on with my initial townreads (at least i'd like to think). i did play this one differently but real life circumstances affecting my mood and yadda yadda yadda :dead:

plus i felt like i was being too in-your-face with the newbies

i would like to hear about shade's non-linear character progression though

also lynching me for that reason isn't good play btw because i have no idea if my view of the gamestate is actually valid when we get only 1 ml before lylo :dead:

that and not that much info in general (though still more than think/rak) makes me not feel safe clearing him just yet


felt like newbie sheeping the experienced players which is obviously bad play but the nonchalantness makes me think of PS! meta

like

usually people just sit around with their hands under their laps and wait for the loudest/most experienced person to decide which lurker to arbitrarily lynch (or for another loud townie to call the loud townie scum)

so i'm going to call it NAI for the most part

plus i think he's played enough games to know that voting for no reason is considered scummy and he'd want to keep the towncred he got from pointing out schadd_'s "soft" if he were actually scum here

and there's also the fact he didn't suspect me for having reads too quickly which was also part of what got me ml'd in our last game together (and our only game in recent memory tbh)

so yeah it's mostly a meta read

actually i kind of just made a really weird assumption so i'm going to resolve it

rask why aren't you townreading me? or at least strong enough to cross out like schadd_ or matt (creature i'd add in too but he's basically conftown tbh)

i assumed you just aren't really familiar with me and i'm not a newbie so i'm not as likely to tell as transparently but i'm worse at this then i let on sometimes

bored at this gamestate so readlist

{Creature} - Statistically provable conftown dont lynch this slot ever
{Rask, GAYreen} - Strong town because meta/stuff i can look into and back up
{schadd_, matt} - also strong town but are newbies i don't know so the info here is just from the game
{Shade} - Probably flips town but like what are the odds town just recognizes itself within 10 pages and forms a townbloc of 7?? paranoia nullread at worst and i'm not even that paranoid of a player usually this gamestate is just weird af
{rakkar} - disengaged two posts, everyone else is significantly townier or at least attempted to advance the game, gonna trust rask's tell. nullscum but that's generous
{tb} - ok like i get being busy and being in four games at once can be time consuming but this is a newbie game yknow... i feel like it should be a priority. i dont want to be mean but at this point it feels deliberate, if it's not i would do what i did when i fucked up a bunch of games by being useless like this and limit yourself to 2 at the very most. that includes /ins too, make sure you're never in more than 2 at once. if you're scum your play is fine because you not posting is giving the thread a derth of info at sometimes that can passively break a townbloc but like???

@newbies, if it's actually rakkar/TB and none of you have rused me (i love that word lmao) i would suggest taking on the Open queue, generally that one and Opens are more newbie friendly. you guys seem like you have a lot of potential regardless of alignment so i feel like you were cheated out of a challenging game but i think besides unfamiliarity with site culture you could probably handle a non-newbie

if that game gets too slow i wouldn't in for a second Open or normal though, go for a micro or replace into a decent newbie game. i would probably try out only one non-newbie game at a time just so you can see how much you can handle on your plate at a time

yeah i got my vote on skull emoji

btw no clue where GAYreen went, saw him online yesterday to get an avatar but no posts. still think he's town considering the gamestate gives town some excuse to not post (nothing new to comment on yadda yadda yadda)

rakkar likely will be replaced anyway

also if any of you are open to hydra with me hmu with a good name (i'm ass at names tbh) and we can queue in the open or micro queue

hydras are where two or more people share an account and slot in a game. they're not allowed in normals and some mods don't like them but i'm a huge fan

the idea is to help improve playstyle by learning from players different or opposite to you but i enjoy just having someone who knows my motivations to bounce ideas off of (plus depending on the game i can hyperpost somewhere out of the thread and let it breathe you know)

In post 361, GAYreenHamster wrote:how is creature practically conftown


How to read Creature in a micro with almost perfect accuracy:

    1. Click the activity overview.
    2. Find the value of (Creature's posts) / (Total posts in thread - 3)
    3. If the value is around 17 or higher you can be pretty sure this is town Creature. Disregard this if Creature has been called out for not being engaged in the game or lurking.
      Disregard this if Creature has been called out for not being engaged in the game or lurking. Instead...
      1. If his reads are generally "townread the loudest people, scumread lurking town" he's probably scum.
      2. If he doesn't have that many crossed out lists he's probably scum.
      3. If he's not doing anything resembling scumhunting he's probably scum.
      4. If he's deliberately inflating his post count with ???? that isn't weird Creature gamesolving ???? (e.g., seeing if scumreads make sense as a scumteam by looking to see how close they are together in the playerlist) he's probably scum.
      5. If his tone feels monotonous and just more indifferent than normal he's probably scum
    4. If the value is below 10 he's almost definitely scum (but there's a small chance everyone else is just louder).

the numerical stuff also isn't pulled out of my ass i can show you the math if you want

plus the proof that the amount he posts is actually AI for him

    aggressive brute-forcing of game by just throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks

    somehow being lynchbait despite being obvious town (people just seem to forget scum creature exists)

actually that makes sense and i kind kind of vibe with that yeah. i guess i kind of saw that when I pointed out how his questions really don't follow a thought process that ThinkBig is scum, but I can reasonably see town considering multiple angles as well as scum knowing what to push next :/

your nullreads start early tho tbh but i get it

gonna hit up your games probably if i have free time over the week :dead:

i have reason to believe that TB actually forgot about this game i have to be cagey about but hopefully this remedies it a bit:

@Mod, requesting an informal prod or poke for TB considering his V/LA but also the slowed gamestate without his posting? If you don't those that that's cool too

< :/

@Matt, if Rakkar's replacement reads as obvious town, who do you think would be the best lynch? Shade is the only person i can marginally think flips scum if not TB/Rakkar but then TB/Shade doesn't make much sense to me.

the "just lynched and left" is definitely a thing from chatroom mafia but now that you pointed it out, wouldn't the fact that this is a longer game translate and make that not as scummy as it woukd be in a different medium?

i'm assuming he doesn't have differing reads from the general consensus since i asked him earlier

not that that's townie, just that i get why he wouldn't post a readlist

The logic behind him being a TB partner I can follow, so in a world where TB is scum but then we lynch the rakkar slot after and it's town, I would be giving GAYreen less town credit.

kinda hate delving too deep into theoreticals D1, but if we're not going to get AI (alignment indicative) content from TB or rakkar's slot i'm not sure what else to do

pedit: i mean his reasoning for asking to L-1 TB was basically just "for pressure" and did feel sheepy, same with his release of his schadd_ read so I got where you came from with that point

are you asking me to explain this? assuming since you read up to pg. 3

if so like i get where you're coming from in that it's pro-town to explain reasoning for votes, but when it's page 3 in a newbie i want to see how the new players engage with my presumed reasoning and start analyzing. If I just straight up explain shit then it ruins any sort of potential to get a 100% original viewpoint from a slot because they can just say "yeah i feel the same way".

you'd have a point in a normal game i feel but here it's different

game is a slowburn because 2 slots haven't given much content and everyone townreads each other. glad to see the kumbaya breaking up tho because i signed up for a mafia game

TB's questions aren't going to catch scum.

Good RQS asks questions that can be answered with more than one word because you want to establish a baseline for how someone responds to a critical thinking question, or a question that's going to incite a reaction. "Are you scum?" works wonders, always. As does "What are your feelings on policy lynches?". Force people to take sides. the good shit :dead:

I don't.

You buddy with EVERYONE as scum, you leave yourself with no room if you're put into a position where a read doesn't make sense.

Like I'm townreading the fuck out of your walls right now.

POE reads? TB/Shade. No fucking way does that make sense. I'm forced to re-evaulate and I can tell you right now I'm not putting up with that shit as scum.

Scum doesn't decide to create a townbloc of 6 people, especially when a replacement is obviously incoming, because if it's actually accurate sans them they give themselves no flexibility to adapt. BAM, suddenly obvtown replacement joins in? What the fuck is scum!Giga who got everyone to hold hands and smile going to do now that their scumteam from their POV makes no sense? It's shit play and while I'm not a good player I'm not ass.

BECAUSE TALKATIVE SCUM????? hes not contibuting anything but townreads and post 108 "closest thing i have to a scumread" (tb)??? pls you got it down to 3 possibles and youre still gonna say you only suspect one even with the lurkin? at the very least here youd recognize that one of the two lurks is more likely to be town than not and that youre vibing with someone you shouldnt be (oh wait youre scum nvm lol)


see this is the shit showtime was arguing basically (this reads townier but)

the reads I form are going to be the reads i form. townreads are taking stances and yadda yadda yadda you know what I'm going to argue since you probably read my walls. I see something that reads to me as town I'm calling it town, 2 lurkers in a newbie game is realistic considering the point of the newbie queue is to A: educate new players, and B: keep flakers out of the main queues. paranoia isn't a thing i do as town because that does nothing but disrupt the townbloc. be smart about what you townread but don't just like scumread things because it's too easy you know?

i deal with this bs every time i roll town and 1759 was like the only time i didn't get flak for it by town tbh

115 seems like a silly thing to scumread for that reason but ok ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In post 400, cassielle wrote:gbT; why didn't you find a way to use those questions to get info, or at least continue with a diff RQS set?

you admit its a good idea shortly after killing it dead, but do nothing to replace it? no, sorry, i dont buy it. you could have kept it going in the background while developing good reads, but you jumped on TB and stopped that train cold. i want a good answer. im halfway leaning toward starting a new q&a session here and seeing how you react lol


eh, RQS worked once for me but it's a gimmick. RVS is better now that my reads are better (i mean here they're shit apparently). Starting the game off by posturing a scumread I was hoping would be a good replacement since RVS is pointless if you can make a serious vote. Like, I was pretty intent on killing TB right then and there and I wanted that to show in my posts, still feel the bloodlust but now it's kinda gone from time. I was hoping that town would react by calling my push shit and voting me or something or see what i saw. instead people called it boring so?? sometimes shit doesn't work out

still i think "HEY GUYS GUESS WHY I'M SCUMREADING TB VOTE WITH ME" is a way more interesting way to start a game than TB's RQS

What sort of info would you expect for me to get from TB's questions, anyway? People almost always say where they're from sitewise or how much experience or whatever regardless. they don't seem like helpful questions to me

lmfao go ahead on RQS 2.0

i'll get back to you on rask because like your posting was literally the controversy i've been dying for so i'm probably going to reread every slot besides creature and gayreen from this

from memory i don't think the L-1 vote was that weird but honestly experiencing this game in real-time was really surreal

((((((((((also thanks for putting a fuckton of pressure on me regardless of alignment to not disappoint someone who watched one of my games and looks up to me apparently?? :igmeou: ))))))))))))

this sentence doesn't make sense so let me try to break it down

like when i was a raw newb i probably couldn't form reads during rvs

now i generally read people from like 1 post, especially in rvs

raw newbs can work with RQS because obvious material

RVS gets the game moving faster and RQS annoys people outside of the newbie queue

cassie final final thoughts because i'm addicted to mafiascum and don't know when i want to log off

if you scumread me you have to picture me laughing my ass off the entire game and every time someone says something way off base

legit want to know if that mental image works with your read on me

also forgot to say that i enjoy being the seventh circle of hell itself

hey before i answer casserole (i like this better than cassie), hi Grey! ♡♡

also with -grey- in here we're going to have a fuckton of active spammy posters so get excited :up:

In post 406, cassielle wrote:regarding info to get from those questions:

first off, it sets up a baseline and makes sure you know everyones experience level. id have followed it up with an experienced-folks-only question set involving who theyve played with before and what pointers they can give about town/scum metas, but thats just because i would want to level that playing field information-wise -- ses and ic have an advantage in knowing some of their counterparts, noobs are just about completely unaware of everyone.

secondly (less important from a game perspective, more important from a learning perspective) it gives everyone an opening to ask about roles they dont understand to the ic without unintentionally (even unknowingly) softing themselves as that role -- because EVERYONE is doing it and MOST are going to be vt or scum! that gives noobs a leg up that the experienced folks already have, without shifting balance. important later, though not immediately.

third, you can always jump on random peoples questions and request followups. avoid q4 and you avoid looking like youre rolefishing. and by doing this you can grab onto anyones questions list as a thread to tug at if you want more info but dont want to be tugging on the latest discussion threads for whatever reason (cornering a suspicious player into a position, etc). it gives town a powerful tool by forcing everyone to put a bit of themselves up front at the start in a way that rvs doesnt quite do. furthermore, while you cant ask a latecomer to engage in rvs for tells, you can ask them to fill out the standard q&a sheet everyone else has got to drag info out of them. its easy to dodge a "oh whats your reads list" at this stage just coming in, too lazy to do a deep re-read or w/e you want really. it corners the lurkers into making a move that people can latch onto later if necessary, which (as you saw with my predecessor lol) isnt as easy without it.

ill seriously consider rqs 2.0 still, but im gonna wait for your reaction to this post.

p-edit: im ok with shade, but id WAY prefer schadd_, gbT or rask. moreso schadd_ or rask atm, im getting info out of gbT!

and yeah @gbT you totally strike me that way, imo were actually quite a lot alike haha


With the first point, you can usually get a good handle of someone's experience just from their posting. Schadd_ reads like he's played one or two games, you read about as experienced as me, while matt seems like a raw newb for example. It's an OK question I guess if you can't figure out how experienced players are based on how they play, but at least one of the SEs or Creautre should be able to say something.... Wrt to the meta question, it's an interesting point but we even saw in this game that it came up naturally in the discussion with Creature. After all, this is a social game, so if people already know each other it's going to come up in conversation. Plus, I think not forcing it into the discussion into a standardized questionnaire can give players the opportunity to see who actually makes the engagement to understand meta they are unfamiliar with (or even learn how to meta, since there's kind of a learning curve in getting that it's not "Player X does Y in Z situation" but "This is Player X's personality"). I'm reminded of the game where I was scum with one of my IRL friends and when that point came up, one of the townies wanted to know more about our relationship and use it as a baseline to read us due to a past game where the scumteam knew each other irl. That's obvtown as fuck.

The second point is actually a good counter-argument. I'll admit I've only heard one side of the argument and I agreed with it. Don't really have much else to say here other than I'll try to be more open-minded and let future experience decide how I feel about that question.

If I'm understanding the third point correctly, you believe the better play for me was to call out TB for question 4 and suggest something else? I've never really been a fan of RQS (again, it's a gimmick, I did it once, I did it enough times) so that isn't really going to come intuitively to me. I do like your point on how it's something you can force players to engage on, but wouldn't the same player who dodges the readlist question also just answer the RQS and nothing else? And the rest of the table engage with said lurker the same way (via rope or pressure)? Obviously not answering anything but an RQS isn't extremely alignment indicative for newer players as you would know from your predecessor, but still... I guess if you make the RQS more game-relevant (so like a generalized questionnaire about the gamestate?) then using it would be a lot more helpful/AI. If another newbie were to replace in (grey isn't a newb so), I could see asking a player to read for specific things while catching up or giving basic info about themselves (since once there's AI content it is a bit unnatural to just give that away since people want to jump straight into the game most of the time).

basically if it's not clear from what i wrote here i'd be down for RQS 2.0 if it weren't an RQS. but then i feel like that defeats the purpose of asking it at this point of the game since we have enough to go off of to ask specific questions to specific people, which gets more info than something generalized.

i'm like 90% sure i answered this the scum way :dead:
but honestly the fact that you seem to have an elaborate idea of how i should be answering this already thought up of is so town lmfao, i just hate disappointing people

also i saw during pedits...

@Matt, when did Rask become your top scumread??

In post 418, cassielle wrote:im on board with most of these, but imo post 53 schadd_ is pure evil, its a quiet way of asking "is it a good play to off the IC for mafia?" like, the best you could say is NAI, to me it comes off as ultrascum


i asked a similar question when i was town in my newbie game, i don't see it as AI honestly

the idea of an IC is kind of strange at first but having one around is like training wheels. by the time D1 is over you don't really need the IC any more and the SEs can usually pull their weight

In post 419, Creature wrote:
In post 148, gigabyteTroubadour wrote:is that town i'm not sure honestly

The bigger your personal townblock is, the less you'll accept other townreads.


yeah basically but

usually in the early-game if i see something that pings me as town/genuine i just call it town, if I find something scummy i call it scummy. if that ends up in having more of one type of read then i re-evaulate

didn't really get a vibe one way or the other from . i realize there's the temptation to call it a townslip but it's kind of a cheap townslip to intentionally go for for newbiescum, but i don't get the vibe that means he legitimately thought that the scumteam had to have an experienced player and a newbie. I like casserole's read on it that it could be a newbie frustrated that they rolled scum with another newbie but that shows how many angles you can really come up with. it's just a meh post that doesn't ping me.

Creature, what do you mean by "harsh" in ?

Casserole, if the general vibe is to follow me, wouldn't that insinuate I'm town? Like I suppose I could just be really influential scum, but the table seems decently smart here and capable of coming up with their own opinions. I don't see "follow giga" happening if they're my scumbuddies (i'd tell them in the PT to try to think of original thoughts and that's backed up by my last game), nor do I see it happening if they're all town and I'm scum. I'm going to look more into this once I finish catching up.

dont really agree with casserole's point on rask not crossing himself out but it is kind of funny.

creature what about my meta seems different here in ? significant changes in posting style aren't AI for me and my town and scum games are constantly going to look and feel different depending on my mood.

honestly what irks me most about rask is that he doesn't townread GAYreen but I don't know how much of that is playstyle vs. AI

yeah i get the rask scumreads now. still feel a good deal of emotional engagement so i'm probably just going to straight up reread the game but i think i'm only comfortable with {Grey, Casserole, Creature} townreads now, maybe schadd_ too.

is a good vote though...

can't really tell what rask is thinking about casserole page 20.

is a good post imo. can go into detail but i'm not really vibing with cassie's scumread of this slot

dw should always be implicit

@Shade, you can always declare a V/LA for a couple of days if something like that comes up again (or you see this)! anyway, I'm not exactly following what you find scummy about GAYreen's reaction to the claim, could you go more in-depth?

don't really think the reasons cassie brings up to sr mbg aren't alignment indicative, like i don't consider him a lurker and i felt his early posts had a genuine tone to them but i'm probably rereading that slot too

are my thoughts exactly. @TB, The best way to deal with pressure is to just contribute, trust town to find town. if you can't keep up mentally then i would definitely suggest replacing out, i've done it before in a similar situation and i won't think anything ill of you if you do.

i can vibe with at this point, though i don't really feel as strongly about the scumreads (i never do tbh) so i'd say they're all about equal.

In post 517, ThinkBig wrote:{S}Schadd
{S}Cassielle


i would definitely like to hear more about these...

on , creature getting that "conftown" read was more from my understanding of his meta. vibe with the TB read. GAYreen read seems a bit shallow/simplistic but i can see it coming from town. actually had the same thought on casserole (too many scumreads) but like conviction wise and just how much she needed to break up the kumbaya it's obvtown. worth noting that in a tb/rakkar world that doing what cassie is doing is TECHNICALLY the optimal play i highly highly highly doubt that that's what she's trying to do.

i still think matt's town tbh

yeah my posts are shit lol cassie

don't think was a scummy answer, calling the whole thing a circlejerk i think did answer the question but

agreeing with and that's basically why i've been townreading mbg. same with .

((just saw the tracker claim here))

actually i still need to sit and think about the claim and it kind of compromised my catch up (i just woke up like an hour ago and i have to go back to sleep so uh)

i'll just post this now

In post 83, mattblackguy wrote:VOTE: Rakkar

Just because I wanted to vote someone and also because Rakkar is scum.


like this felt really natural and i actually liked the vote at the time (still do but rakkar slot is obvtown)

i think newbie scum who at least have the knowledge of how-to-town would try to overexplain their reads but isn't that at all. the admission he has no idea why he's townreading me is just such a newbtown thing, things like that and admitting to nullreading (as if it's bad to not know or being overly nonchalant with it) are big newbtown tells for me.

i'm also townreading pretty hard, i would expect scum to say this is a more mocking way ("gg ez"), overplay the feeling of it being too easy, or just state the feeling ("i'm confused, it can't be this easy"). "So did we win?" has this sense of I guess honesty about the game being too easy that pings me as town.

not sure why i agreed with easily and it seems like analysis i maybe gave too much credit for but like when a townread says something like this i do tend to sheep it. it has stopped me from strongarming scum D1 (cassie read 1759, so she knows I'm referring to Nobita). can see this as scummy.

gives me those honest-vibes too, like newbscum would know for a fact that scum has to look town because they're doing so. since i find that newbscum are more likely to trip up on the inside knowledge they have, i feel like matt just wouldn't ask about this as scum.

's unvote also feels newbtownie. As scum, he's going to push for the scumteam being rakkar/TB narrative at this point in the gamestate. Why waffle here as scum? It's just awkward and doesn't really help him.

I can see as scummy, discrediting the GAYreen slot that I do think is easy pickings for shallow scumreads and an opening in the parts of the townbloc that are more townread (can't attack creature, attacking me is too obvious and hard to do without blowback). But when the rest of the ISO says town this is just as likely just newbie analysis.

transition to rask scumread was awkward since there wasn't much shown in the thread that lead up to it tbh so i can see this being sheeping (the reasoning is original though even if it's not strong), makes more sense as "well the consensus is now here, where do I stand on this?" and re-evaulating.

the catch about cassie scumreading 4 slots i thought was also something town is more likely to call out, newbie scum would just assume that having a decent amount of suspects is good (this does assume cassie!town). the way he talked about it also didn't look like he was throwing shit at a townread either.

like overall it's a genuine ISO, there are some awkward points in it but reading it as weak analysis i think makes more sense than tactical if that makes sense

cassielle wrote:wrt my scumread on mbg: scrutinize his readlists fromstart to finish and check vote patterns too. sheepy from start to finish, rapidchange in reads between first 2 lists, but backs off a wagon with a strong general scumread (that he agrees on) on it at l-1. could be noob cold feet, but still leans scum imo


I'm trying to remember what my newbie cold feet was like when our first wagon hit L-1

I remember taking more of a stronger stance and almost 180ing on my reads? hm.

going to catch up starting from post 659 in a bit but like (posting here so i know what post i left off at)

this game is really fucking surreal. feel like this table is going to bond together from it in the end.

rask is a bad lynch unless the PR wants to CC. honestly it should be up to them, as long as they don't wait until LYLO or MYLO (when we have no mislynches left).

matt bringing up the meta gives him huge townpoints btw, I knew of it but I don't read it as AI because tracker is the safest claim whether you're a town PR or scum. i really cannot see newbie scum deciding to dig up dirt on Rask like that to discredit him, it's town.

clusterfucky read progression on reread looks more like trying to find ways of dismantling the townbloc. i gave her too easy a townread imo

unshakable townreads on creature, mbg, -grey- and schadd_ in order of confidence but they're all pretty unshakable.

was a scum hammer but i'll let rc bus casie so we can 1v1 tomorrow since apparently cassie/gigabyte makes sense as a team

game's basically solved

i'll explain more in-depth when I'm feeling better but it's a combination of townreading everyone harder and the fact that i think her constant switching of reads was finding the most convienent way to discredit the townbloc i had formed (starting with me, when no one bit then rask, then schadd_)

cassie i'm writing my response atm (i'm going to be functioning a lot slower than i did yesterDay so don't be surprised if i fall asleep while writing it but i am going to try)

but i wouldn't give GAYreen a pass for having experience on PS!

their meta is literal trash

if i were a decent player on their forum or in-game (although that's no one lol) maybe but if he looks newbie i'd call him newbie

i CAN see him flipping scum here don't get me wrong but i'd have to drink bleach before i even consider pushing that way before you and/or rc

In post 1024, cassielle wrote:why did i do it the way that i did? well, why was the townblock so crystallized?


i'll answer the second bit first

Creature is a really fucking strong meta read - it's even mathematically provable. You agree with me here so we can leave this alone.

mbg i went and made that really big ISO post, i had to really stretch the content of his posts to see ANY scum motivation from it. at least from my experience i think people overestimate how scummy caution is for newbies, you just have to see where that caution is coming from. he struck me as someone who actually writes notes while playing which would have made me really sure about my townread on him if it were true but i still think he's town.

do you want me to write a huge wallpost on schadd_? i'm really sorry it's hard for me to do something like that but i can do so later. my townread of him though is basically for having really naturally timed reactions and just?? vibing? of everyone he's the mindset i Get the most but creature considering him as scum is making me feel like i missed something.

like his townread for me low-key telling everyone that i'm going to be posting differently for 1.5-2 weeks due to rl-circumstancestm while also feeling paranoid about my radio silence (just his null read of me in general) feels EXACTLY how town should be looking at the game. i guess he feels like the model townposter to me?

pedit: schadd_ is townposting

rask is kind of similar but for a more experienced player it's less ai. but claimed tracker and all.

shade was the most meh of the group so i won't really put him there

for me these are well-justified readstm, i tried to be a wallposter when i was a newb (i guess i am still one?) but it takes way more energy and i usually just end up repeating myself because it's hard for me to articulate my thoughts? this feels more natural to me even if my thoughts in words seem more nebulous than they should be.

but yeah im really fucking confident that these are all town

like i skimmed your iso and i'm not really feeling your "yeah i'm going to call giga ultrascum so people sheep me when i barely pressure them BUT RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS I'M NOT GOING TO EXPLAIN WHY THEY ARE TOWN (why are they town). gonna pressure rask in the meanwhile and tunnel conftown (schadd_'s town btw so's gayreen) WAIT QUICK REVERSAL OF EVERYTHING grey's scum af and so is schadd_"

like i usually townread inconsistency that fucking obvious because hey town changes their viewpoint sometimes but??? it's approaching the point of caricature and you sticking to schadd_!scum when he's obvtowning is ???????? probably something you're sticking with because you got him at L-1 somehow

if you need more i can give it i guess but it's like 8 and i woke up at 4 for some reason i'm tired af
(don't feel bad or anything i play this game for fun)

casie can you just reread the game as if rask was town

hey actually if this is not a sarcastic question

can you (and RC) give thoughts on my creature meta?

in no way, shape, or form does this read as a scumgame of creature

like after Bee Movie mafia i'm confident i can pick out scum!creature after 3-5 non-IC posts and creature's ISO still reads as a town!creature one

if i'm wrong i'd like to know why at least so i'm not giving a hard townread undeservedly

i realize that's one game but remember i skimmed through all of his micro games to make my RVS vote for that game so I'd like to think i have SOME familiarity with creature's personality

if this is scum!creature then he has significantly improved his ability to mimic his townplay and i'm honestly impressed

Creature wrote:I don't see RC and Cass partnered together, even if RC has the fame of superbussing. Though, I feel Cass is the town and RC is the scum.


also creature if it's not casielle who would rc's theoretical partner be

mostly because i have at least some reason to think all of the other slots are town (rc included, if i squint really hard i can see how he might be town but his explanation for 921 still gives me flashbacks to my newbie so ???)

there's a difference between saying "guys trust my read" and "tell me where i'm wrong" though

asking you to explain why your read is different actually does and is what i'm actually looking for

The answer to where you're wrong, assuming town, is that Creature knows exactly what you're looking for to townread him and did exactly that.


i mean fair point

but what about his play is scummy to you? this is where I'm trying to get this line of questioning to go

With my EYES!


you're killing me here grey

lemme just rephrase this

do you think i'm casielle's partner? if casielle were to flip town how would that impact your town/scumread on me?

When you reconsider your reads, you do so through an objective lens


i mean

if i'm just saying "whelp everyone's town TB/rakkar" is it actually driving the game forward?

and more on the second part pls

but that's basically the summary of my D1 ISO... am i wrong about that :shifty: ?

on the second point is that just in reference to this conversation we're having or am i forgetting an example of something from D1?

this game is actually like a fever dream i literally cannot remember anything and rereading it and trying to relive it just gives me a headache and i can't focus on it (especially once casielle starts posting walls) so like me rereading the game is going to have to wait a week when i'm actually a functional human being

In post 1152, Raskolnikov wrote:giga talk more about that rc/cass thingo you apparently think is scum


it's kind of at the point where it's more "lol poe" than it is actual read

rc's hammer in 921 and me not really jiving with his logic when he explained it just gives me flashbacks to my newbie where he talked me out of pushing for a NL in a 6 player mylo with a claimed, un-shot BP because he was totally going to get nk'd and no one would listen to his reads (despite the fact that i was basically his and kraska's lapdog that game because i didn't really know how to alignment read that well) and i just kind of lapped it up

like i said i want to call bullshit on rc thinking that he could possibly be the N1 kill after you claimed making his hammer pointless when i needed more time (basically to make sure i wasn't like this during D2), which makes me think scum motivation

scum motivation makes me think casielle partner because i'm not that hard of a ml to pull off in general and i think rc could totally pull that off after doing something "obviously scummy" just because of how he was in our newbie. a townflip from me would force him to "re-evaulate" or hardbus casielle but it'd still be LYLO.

it's a slightly more difficult path to take if he lynches casielle!partner but i think it'd still work in his favor

but tbh he's been kind of (kind of) towntelling so at this point i'm just throwing my hands in the air and trying to restart entirely

would rask actually track RC after he says that?

it's a load of wifom but i think if i didn't pull the discussion that way it would have worked
