It was way more problematic than it just causing a disadvantage

But yes, not having regular elims and having to deal with a mechanic people didnt sign up for that, for me, sucked the fun out of the game and made it insanely tedious with no perceived reward for greater than 2 weeks was incredibly disadvantageous

one, because the mechanic itself made me really dread having to go through the mechanics necessary each day and that absolutely has an effect of the other aspects of the game like the social play aspect

and two, because having actual eliminations is part of the bonding aspect of the game of survivor that i love and that you expect and its what i wanted

I dont think the mechanic was bad, I just personally dont play games like it, theyre not for me. Basically the only games I play in mish mash are survivor, so I was disappointed and so of course it affected how I engaged with the game. Obviously there was an objective HUGE increase in replace-outs (and I almost replaced out too but I didnt because I was asked not to when I brought it up), so there was an issue with the game, and the issue was the false advertising.

I think the mechanic itself though would put some people at a disadvantage regardless of it not being survivor. But, if you actually signed up for that mechanic, then thats your fault for not rolling with those punches and having a dynamic playstyle

So my point is that yes I feel it put me at a disadvantage but thats not the problem, if it had put me at a disadvantage but I signed up for it then it wouldnt matter, mechanics can put people at disadvantages and still be good

But also I replaced in so it was my fault for not reading the quirky rules before agreeing to replace because I had access to them. I just ASSUMED something called survivor would be somewhere close to survivor, jokes on me! But 20 people were in the game before they got a chance to know the rules, and a lot of them replaced or tried to, so obvi it wasnt just a Me Problem

Shacos speech wasn't good you just already liked him so you liked the speech. To people who felt shaco didn't do anything which was his major critique it was a bad move. he didn't get 4/8 votes and was one amumu vote away from losing which isn't saying much about precision when mumu was a wild card. Pls don't make that the meta tyia

(Yeah blablabla I'm now happy shaco won bc he was a beautiful soul and I like it looking back but you conf bias all the actions of the ppl you already like to be positive kween ur a cog in the machinery of social psych 101 don't let the hypnotoad get you lulus ftc performance was distant and cold none of the finalists that game gave stellar ftc performances)
