I have read 1 page, and I am leaning town on Meuh and Ydra.

Meuh for the miller counter claim, and Ydra for her joke in response to the miller counter claim lol

Ydra, who is scum?

why do you lean town on meuh?
and me for that matter
Meuh because of the miller counter claim. Feel like a move that would unnecessarily draw negative attention, assuming Meuh scum / Pooky town, counter claiming into taking the stance that there will not be 2 millers, and voting pooky, seems like a recipe to getting pooky to constantly scum read you the entire game.

Yours was the tone of your post fake claiming miller. I liked it.

I find myself generally agreeing with Meuh on this, wrt to Pooky just backing off on the person who CC'd them.

Meuh doesn't really fit into that archetype in my head and I'm inclined to believe her claim, her posting afterwards reads solidly town to me and I don't see reason to doubt that.
Oh look, catboi read my mind, while also being in the past from me. Quite impressive.

I feel like it is pretty standard to be suspicious of a CC. Also to be suspicious that this 9 player game has 2 millers.

I think that I would not have been as suspicious of you, if you had responded with the reasons why she is more likely to be town given the situation, but instead you walked this middle road of half heartedly pushing her, and then dropping it, and moving on. And that does not feel like a townie, who thinks her position is townie OR a townie who thinks that her cc makes her scum by default.

I did not see a gut reaction scum read, and I did not see an analytical take on why she would do that as scum (You never voiced a reason to think she was town before the post you just made).

You just pushed back at her half heartedly when she pushed you, and then dropped it.

And that feels off to me.

And thinking about it from a scum POV, "tell me a flavor that makes sense as a miller" into "sure that flavor makes sense" into "pivoting away from the double miller claim" seems like a reasonable plan of action given the situation.

I have worked through the conversations on pooky not having fake claimed miller in his first post as scum before, and it is giving me a little pause.

I feel you that this reaction is a bit disproportionate and a lot of mafia would probably be playing it more cool here, but I also don't really know her that well and don't know what her scumrange is or what she's capable of. some people do like to smash the AtE button cause it's easier for them to sound genuine, especially if the suspicion isn't exactly 'fair' despite being correct

idk did you have any thoughts on the aforementioned phone point?


Neither of these come across to me, as GL trying to get a feel for Dunn or Ydra's alignments, or to see if they are swayed by their arguments, but more to weaken early town reads that they have forming, which feels like a weird town priority for page 11

I am working through the SirCakez and Ydra stuff, and all my brain in getting is static.

It takes up a decent amount of thread conversation here, but I do not feel like I formed any actionable thoughts about either of them from it tbh.

However, I don't like the read on ydrasse, and I don't really like the push on pooky. The ydrasse read felt too free, too easy, assigning credit to a reaction that doesn't seem especially alignment indicative and I think most people wouldn't read anything into.

something
but I don't think it looks like especially well thought out reasoning, just a very simplistic point about him backing down too quickly.
The read on Ydra was a page one read lol. I just got here, and was trying to get into the thread, and that was a page 1 thought.

Since then, I quite liked that she was the only one vocally town reading my slot as it gained votes, and it makes me want to nod along and call her town for it, but also, I am aware that that is just as likely to be a scum stance to take.

I then liked the way that she seemed like she was struggling to find the exact right words to explain why she thought that elle was town. It felt like she was repeatedly responding to people with something along the lines of "that is not quite what I meant, actually..." which made it feel like she had a Real Thought that she was trying to get across.

But then, SirCakez suggestion that she sounded informed did worry me, because if I did not know Elle's alignment, I do not think I would have been town reading her, so it gave me pause.

I think that overall, I would not be interested in voting her because of the explanation thing ringing true to me like she had Specific Throughts that she felt it important to be clear on.

I am also mellowing on Pooky (moved the vote and everything lol). It struck me as odd, I said that, and then answered the follow up questions. But those were my immediate thoughts on reading the interaction.

it's kinda disingenuous to frame that as "weaken early town reads" as opposed to, y'know, scumhunting
Your line of questioning with Dunn did not appear to lead to you voicing any thoughts on Dunn's alignment wrt his Catboi read, nor did you seem to argue that Catboi was scum. It was just "but scum catboi COULD do that too, so you should not town read him." And that being the where that conversation led, left me with that impression.

I also, just, in general do not trust that sort of argument as genuine, because it seems to set a precedent that in order to think someone is more likely to be town, you must believe that their actions could not be replicated. And that is a very silly bar to set for town reads.

I feel like this whole take ignores the context of the fact that I just repped in away from the posts.

Because, yeah, that would be a super weak reason to town read Ydra, on the 5th irl day of the game. But that was my page 1 town pings, posted 5 mins after I repped in, when I had read exactly 1 page of the game.

And the thing with Pooky was my first vote of the game. Made 1 hour into catching up.

I think it is pretty common knowledge that I spew my thoughts into the thread, as I am having them, so I am not really sure why you would expect more nuanced takes from me at the 5 min or the 1 hour mark tbh.

ok what else should I have done to sort her other than asking for her flavor
Not sure tbh.

Like I said, I don't think that I would have questioned a "scum would be less likely to take this path, so meuh is +town" take from you. Or a gut reaction scum read from you.

But it was the way you went from joking/cordial when she first claimed, into telling her to flavor claim or its a scum claim, into dropping, that just did not sit right with me.

But, I have been swayed as I read more of the thread and thought more about it. I have you back in null territory at this point.

I asked because you seemed very focused on convincing me that you are town. But you are also voting for me.

But I liked your response well enough.
In post 446, PookyTheMagicalBear wrote: like I don't really get how you reread the game to here and came to that as the most noteworthy thing to push on

it feels like its been cherrypicked out of GL's iso to fit a specific narrative that is not actually even that convincing tbh
What do you think is the most noteworthy thing to push on at this point, if not that?

I don't really feel like anyone has jumped out and claimed scum yet at this point, do you feel like I missed something?

I have bell and meuh as both likely town. Soft leaning town on Ydra.

I thought a lot about you, but the passion behind that scum read went away.

Cakez posts have largely felt like ones that I don't know how to sort one way or the other, although I did like his take on Ydra seeming informed (even if I am not sure I agree) as a reasonable suspicion that he could have in the moment that he voiced it.

Dunn and Catboi, I don't have either down as town, but did not see any particularly noteworthy reason to suspect them either.

And then there is my GL suspicion, so that is where my vote is.

Where should my vote be, if not there? what did I miss in my catch up?

Especially 442, which came across as you genuinely trying to explain to me the town thought process that led to your actions, and did not come with any questions or anything for me.

Maybe I was wrong to phrase it as "very focused on convincing me" so much as: I read 442, and it did not feel like the way someone would respond to someone that they thought was scum -- but you were voting me. So I asked about your read

And your response felt more like you were on the fence, and that disconnect went away.

I think I actually am swinging towards you just being town after actually interacting with you.

I do not think that it is unreasonable to not be swayed by Dunn's reasons. I wasn't. I still don't have a read on catboi.

It also did not bother me that he asked Dunn to explain the read, that is also reasonable. My issue was where GL went after that.

It did not read to me, like GL was trying to divine if Dunn's read was a plausibly genuine read or not, and therefore whether having that read was scummy or not. At least, I did not see anything about that coming from GL's posts following Dunn's explanation.

Instead, it seemed like he pivoted into trying to convince Dunn not to have that read. And he was not even arguing that Cartboi is scum. Just that Dunn should not have a town read because it is
possible
for scum to replicate it.

I don't see why a townie would actually care if Dunn has a day 1 town read on Catboi, especially one Dunn openly said he is not married to
Spoiler:
I am not disregarding the 4 people I am townreading for the rest of the game, I do think it is a good place to start though.


But there is scum motivation to stop people from forming too many town reads.

If the bar of expectation for me to possibly be town is "have a scum read that I find palatable by page 20" or you are scum, then I don't know why that is your bar for me, nor do I intend to stress myself out striving to meet it.

I have given you my reads, and you just don't like them, which :shrug:

I do not think that I am generally very good at convincing people I am town once I am on the "back foot" as pooky put it, and the thread starts being about me (to be fair, this is probably as true if I were scum as it is when I am town).

And seeing as how I hit E-1 already, and I don't plan on throwing myself all into "proving myself" or what ever, so I think I'll just claim.

I am a 2-shot Tracker.

So, yall can discuss if yall are killing me for claiming, or letting me live for being a PR, and decide on that basis.

And I'll just skip the hassle of trying so hard if I am dying today.

I feel like I said it fairly clearly in the post you quoted here, but I did not have an issue with GL questioning Dunn's read. And the thing that pinged me was his comments to dunn after dunn explained the read.

I do feel a bit like I am beating a dead horse at this point. But I also don't know where I can find a living horse to beat until more people come post more things.

My feeling is you're pushing him and he's been pushing your slot, I don't strongly townread either of you, it just feels like dynamic where there's a scum usually. Either he caught elle and you saw pushing back as the only viable angle or he was going at you in bad faith and you saw through it. It
doesn't
feel like a town vs. town dynamic, at least to me.

This line feels disconnected from what has actually happened in the thread.


While his vote is on my slot, I did not get the impression that GL was particularly pushing my slot when I read through. and even looking back, he voted elle, and explained that vote, but then largely has been focused else where. He has like 2 total posts about Elle

So it feels really strange to me that you are framing it as us mutually pushing one another, or that the scenario in which I am town is one where I saw through that and recognized a bad faith push - especially since my issues with GL had nothing to do with anything he said about Elle.

I am still trying to get a feel for your thoughts, so that was not a particularly helpful response.

I am trying to figure out why me flipping town would influence how likely you feel GL is to be scum.

You said that part of it was because we were mutually pushing each other, and I counted that by saying that GL has not been particularly pushing me.

Does that change your take on whether me flipping town would bolster a GL scum read? Or do you feel like I missed something from the GL push?

Do you feel that way about us, even if you were wrong about the mutual push? if so, why?

The idea that if I were scum, I might mirror my PoV to yours in particular is kind of silly, but I also think it is a townie paranoia to have.

+1 town point to Meuh.

I think that I am convincing myself that GL is town, and that catboi is positioning to eliminate him after killing me for being a tracker.

Both because he linked the two of us together in a way that seems disingenuous, but also in the same post of doing that just side stepped eliminating inside the pair entirely for the day.

Especially when reading , and his pivot into Dunn feels toothless, like it was just The Best Option Left. Not like he even thought his thoughts on Dunn were Good.

My issue is that you seemed more confident in there being scum between me and GL, yet chose Dunn.

Your stated position is that you GL is one of the lower people in your reads, and that his flip would give you insight into me, so that seems like the direction that would be more natural.

But you didn't go that direction. Instead, you voted you weaker read, and punted the Luke/GL pair down the road.

Luke, I want to revisit this. You're scumreading me here because my vote is "toothless", because I lack passion behind it.
That is ass backwards from what I actually said lol.

The toothless vote on Dunn was not the issue. My issue was (1) seeing you link my alignment to someone else, and not liking the explanation on why you did that. And (2) seeing you not pursue that joint read, in a way that I saw as strategically advantageous to you if you were scum.

The toothless part was more how I thought about whether it made sense for town!you, who genuinely believed (1), to still do (2). And I realized I would have been more understanding of that, had you been passionate about the Dunn read as well. But you weren't.

But you - you've seen my scumgame. Do you think I, at any time as scum, come across as dispassionate? As lacking the will to put conviction behind a push?


I am fully aware that you could fake a passionate scum read. But, given the overall energy level of the thread (or lack there of), I do not know that you would have any reason to feel like you needed to put one together, or that doing so would have helped you at the time.

Your vote on Dunn, when ignoring your stated position on me/GL, was generally inoffensive.

I kind of want to go back and look at everyone's stances on Catboi before/after I called out my scum read on him, to see if so many people scum reading him now makes sense. Because when I wrote up my suspicions, I did it while feeling like the possibility of him getting eliminated was very low and that actually gunning for his elimination was a pointless endeavor.

And if there are people who switched their read, double check their stated read on me, because shifting that read after a case presented by someone you are scum reading, but letting live just because they claimed a PR, feels weird.

I do see that he only has 2 votes, but it does feel like there was a really heavy shift in his direction that I was not expecting.

In general, there felt like there was enough of a shift, in a short enough time, that it has me worried that there could be opportunistic scum in there, and is making me second guess and want to be cautious before moving to actual eliminate him.

But also, in my quick scan of todays posts, I feel like there was a lot of ATE in catbois posts, in a way that makes me want to actually just kill him.

Yes, I am waffling. But, I also plan on shifting through some of this right now, and hopefully I can finish my breakfast (the afore mentioned waffle), and pick a direction.

I went down a rabbit hole in the last hour or so lol.

Okay, so, Catboi made a post about me self resolving with time, and it reminded me of a game where it was argued back and forth whether or not a tracker claim would resolve itself, and I seemed to remember that it was catboi making the argument that it would not.

So just spent longer then I would like to admit trying to hunt down the game, to compare. But, it turns out that the person was NOT catboi, it was DUNN.

In this game, PYP, Marci was run up day 1, and then claimed tracker, and then some people backed off. Save The Dragons, voted her before the claim, but then was repeatedly saying that Marci would self resolve as a claimed tracker, and Dunn used that as a basis to claim that STD and Marci were scum partners, and asked repeatedly how the tracker claim would resolve itself.

Spoiler:
In post 1877, marcistar wrote: mArCi cLaiM yOUr rEsUlT

they didnt visit anyone
In post 1878, Dunnstral wrote: ok fascinating.

@Save the Dragons

Have you resolved marcistar's alignment from the above post? And please explain for everybody


But then this game, Dunn had me in his scum pool, but voted for someone else when I claimed tracker, and has not commented on Catboi's claim that I self resolve at all.

@Dunn, why were you all for killing Marci day 1 post tracker claim in that game, and suspicious of claims that a tracker would self resolve // but not feeling the need to voice anything along those lines in this game? Either about the decision to let me live for my claim, or in response to Catboi's claim that I self resolve?

If I am wrong, and you genuinely feel this way about my suspicions on you, I am sorry.

I don't know that it helps to rebuff the idea or not, but I had you squarely in the ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ category when you were actively posting about suspecting me. My suspicions on you did not spark into existence until after you accepted that I was not the elim for the day.

So, from my PoV, I don't really feel like it had much of anything to do with your suspecting me? But I also don't claim to have 100% internal subconscious monitoring, so idk.

In post 599, catboi wrote: Luke is town reading her because she made a joke on page 1 and because she is defending his slot. I think this is obviously terrible reasoning n face value. Early game gutreads are not very likely to be accurate, and townreading someone simply for defending you means you are highly likely to fall into a pocket. Scum defend players who otherwise look to be uncontested wagons all the time. I think he is biased because he disliked being run up so quickly upon entering the game (which to be fair is an entirely understandable response), and so has latched on to anyone he saw as being protective of him.
I do not currently have a town read on Ydra, fwiw.

My post about liking her page 1 post was never something that was going to influence my read of her long term, unless I continually ran into the Nice Vibes over and over during the catch up. It was a my gut reaction to the post, that I said out loud into the thread, because I was live tweeting my catch up, and starting out immediately with putting out Thoughts and Content, so that people would start talking to me, for me to get into the game. That stopped being a factor of my thoughts on Ydra very quickly.

I also recognized the potential of her white knighting my slot, and yes, I was drawn into it somewhat when I felt completely iced out from the game, but again, my emphasis on that have lessened over time.

I would say that currently, the only thing I have in my head as to why I might want to sort her town is this:
In post 435, Lukewarm wrote: It felt like she was repeatedly responding to people with something along the lines of "that is not quite what I meant, actually..." which made it feel like she had a Real Thought that she was trying to get across.
Because I do think that caring about the exact specifics of the reasons she was trying to call Elle town points a little more towards an actual thought, then a scum who is just generally trying to position themselves as Having a Read, and Later Being Proven Right.

But I am also conscious of the fact that that is the only coherent thought I have had about Ydra's alignment so far this game, and that is not actually a good thing.

In post 653, Bell wrote: You'd kill someone for aTe?
I don't know that I would kill someone for ate, in general.

But when I am already suspecting someone, and then there is a lot of it, it makes it hard for me to further engage with the read.

So, I think about just killing them to avoid having to wade through the mess of it, because if someone is actually upset, arguing that they are faking being upset feels like being a dick, but just accepting it as genuine feels like falling for ate.

So, I do have the urge to just kill, and let the flip answer the question.

In this exact instance, I think I am trying to just look at the other stuff around it for the time being.

How is that tough? Just kill the one you suspect more of being scum individually.
its tough because i find them independently scummy but them not being SvS means even if I'm right there's still another scum out there and I just keep going through the playerlist and being like who tf is scum this game

we have:
pooky and meuh the miller claims
luke who claimed pr
ydra who im really stuck with and keep going back and forth on
dunn who I think is playing like town here
and then you and honestly I don't know what to think about you this game Bell but I wouldn't vote you today
Do you feel like you need a team solve in order to commit to a day 1 elimination?

VOTE: sircakez

As my best bet of scum looking to capitalize on the growing Catboi pressure.

I am not opposed to a Ydra elim though. But I think I am opposed to a GL elim, they actually have worked themselves up into my town reads.

I am pretty sure that it is a site rule that you cannot post after you request to be replaced (even before the mod posts that they are looking for a replacement) - but it is probably one that most mods don't keep track of.

Yeah, that was the exact issue i had, but it seems to be fixed now

fwiw with Ydra "softing being a pr" I did not actually get the impresion that she was doing that as I read the thread.

When she said that catboi voting her was a vote for him, I took it as a threat to vote him, but her flavor being catobi would also make that statement make sense I guess.

As soon as people started suggesting that she was venge, I thought that it was a reach, but did not think it productive to say that in thread.

The carboi rep out kinda killed my enthuseasum for the game, but also, you and cakez are my best guesses for a day 1 elim, and are dueling wagons, so don't feel a massive need to throw myself back at the game to shape the thread currently.

Although, I would prefer cakez over you (See my vote).

When I looked back at the people shifting on Catboi, I felt like you were Really Loud And Confident on the scum read on him, in a way that I would not super expect from scum taking advantage -- while Cakez felt like he was trying to manufacture a progression via his "I'm thinking about voting catboi" line, and then his reasons behind that comment did not line up with the timeline of the thread all that well.

i explained the exact posts and page that my progression on Catboi slot came from - what doesn't line up?
You made a statement about considering voting him.

When asked about it, your post focused on things that happened after your statement.

When asked for time appropriate examples, your reasoning shifted from "overly focused on votes" to "scum indignance at being pushed for something he thinks is NAI" -- which I can see being a shift based on what you can support when put on the spot.

It is not a smoking gun, but it did not feel me with confidence that your thought processes have been internally consistent when remembering what sparked your suspicions. Like when you were writing 674 you were Coming Up with a reason, instead of Remembering The Reason you wrote 596.

In post 1036, PookyTheMagicalBear wrote: as in luke thinks his target is protecting him
yeah, that was my reaction to the result.

I was not blocked or redirected, so seeing dunn targetting me felt like a town target instead of a scum target.

I did not want to claim my result immediately, to avoid outing Dunn, but when dunn said he was down to mass claim, I accepted it.

Wow, how crazy that you are both going to bed when it is between 10:30 PM to 1:30 AM in the US.

What *are* the odds that you would both be going to bed right now?

I said 2 VTs as a reaction test to see if scum would take the bait and treat it as a slip, which seemed to have happened.
I feel like it might've gotten a bit out of hand, though.
and if you are town, this is a really bad "bait."

It was very clear that you were lying about it being a reaction test.

And if you are town, that puts us into a bad position, because the simple answer to seeing someone very obviously lying about something is that they are scum.

I kind of want to believe that the whole series of missteps from RH just now are to bad to truly come from scum, and actually more likely to have come from Embarrassed From Making A Mistake, Town RH.

But I'm gonna think on it. We just started the day, and we still gotta finish mass claim before we have to figure out the elim for the day anyways, so we have time.

I feel like that question is unanswerable until we know if cakez us claiming like, full cop or something.

Obviously, from my pov, the tracker is always town. But I don't currently know if I think the rest of the or claims fit in the game with me, until I see the claim

I think the only way I live to tomorrow (to bring my second result) is if dunn is town, and 2-shot, and lied about being 1 shot in order to bait the kill into me.

Which is honestly the smart way for him to play being 2 shot.

And kind of smarter then a 1-shot dunn true claiming being 1-shot. (Actually 1-shot dunn should have claimed x-shot).

And dunn should probably not react to this post either.

But I don't know who is the play for today. I am a little lost right now.

And dunn should probably not react to this post either.
Dunn’s reasoning for claiming his shot count is very weak and half of it is literally “I didn’t wanna claim more shots and get into trouble with another protective claim” which is pretty blatantly something scum care a thousand times more about. Scum care more about their claim being good than about Luke actually surviving, and scum would be more likely to expect a protective counter-claim. This is reflected in the way Dunn’s handled the claim, it’s a scum perspective the whole way through.
Town!Dunn cares about diverting the kill from Luke or protecting him from one, scum!Dunn cares about the sanctity of his claim. Dunn isn’t even pretending to have the first mindset.
You are ignoring the possibility that I just outlined in the very post that you quoted.

I could see myself as a 2-shot doctor claiming 1-shot in order to bait the scum kill. If that is true, then he cannot say that out loud when asked why he claimed 1-shot.

If Dunn is town, I think this is a reasonably likely possibility. Dunn is a smart player, and being 2-shot claiming 1-shot is a strategic play I could see him making.

In all honesty, it makes more sense to me then a 1-shot Dunn claiming to be 1-shot.

And again, Dunn can not really engage with this conversation.

The only way that I have a chance to give a result tomorrow, is if we leave Dunn alive.

If he is town, and 2-shot, he baits in the kill.
If he is town, and 1-shot, the scum team might be scared of the 2-shot possibility, and want to secure a night kill elsewhere.
If he is scum, he might leave me alive to make it look like the scum team was scared of his protect.

If we kill dunn, I die in every scenario. I am being treated like confirmed town and have an invest left.

I am also not seeing what scum role dunn would have that would result in him targeting me and playing today the way he did.

The only role brought up for him to have targeted me, was if he was also a tracker. But if that is the case, he would have known i targeted him, and he did not need to ask for my action before he claimed.

I don't think scum!tracker!Dunn approaches mass claim this way.

Proving my role, and letting me out I targeted him first, both help my claim more then his.

Scum!tracker!Dunn wants to claim before me, so it looks better for him.

I'm just trying to follow how you went from, me+you +mystery PR meant the bolded.

To me+you+dunn means we all three need to be town for balance.

Like, doesn't option 1 of the bolded mean you thought that you+me as the towns pr was a reasonable option?

Your play makes only real sense if you really were 1-shot.
I still disagree, because claiming 1-shot while being 1-shot is not a great plan.

But honestly, debating this is anti-town. Let scum figure out if they think he is actually 1 or 2 shot on their own.

If you ignore the existence of the millers, I think that 2S Tracker + XS Doc + 1S RB can all fit in this game. But with the 2 miller claims added on top, I am less sure.

But I am not sure if that means scum in dunn/cakez or if that means scum in the millers.

I might be wrong but the way Dunn's been playing makes me think it's unlikely he's 2-shot.
At best, we can hope Cakez is town and has not yet used his rb.
While, this is an anti-town thing for RH to say, I think that if he were scum, this is a post RH would have made in the scum chat and not the main thread.

I have RH down as town currently, and am not interested in his elimination.

I am generally debating between GL/Cakez/Meuh -- but really feel like I need to re-read this game. But I have had family in town, so it just has not happened yet.

Dunn, don't you see?

He thinks you could be a true claiming, scum-aligned, 1-shot doctor (in a game with no Vigilante) who used their 1 shot to protect the town tracker.

I started typing that post before Cakez's post, but took an EMBARASSINGLY LONG time trying to remember/come up with the word advantageous. I kept landing on words that were similar, but not quite it.

That is not what I've been saying.
I'm saying that Dunn is probably trueclaiming the 1-shot aspect if he is really a town doc.
Yeah this part from Luke/Dunn confused me, RH9 was pretty clearly saying that Dunn,
if town
, was being fully truthful (which also lines up with my perspective at this point)
fwiw, I understood what RH was saying, and was just being a silly goofy guy with that post.

RH has instituted the strongest protection from meta, and that is to post a "Congrats town/scum" for who ever won every game ever, making it impossible to quickly look at his past games.

I am looking back at his iso, and there is an earnestness that I have been getting from him, that makes me want to believe that he is town.

But I am less confident on that read then I was before re-reading his iso.

I realized reading back through RH's iso, that while he made a lot of comments this game, it largely ended up being very abstract. Things like doing math on the balance of the game and claims without ever making substantive comments about the actual actions of the players. Or engaging with his image of Dunn as a non-gambity player, but without following through on it with a solid read on Dunn.

And I looked back at a past game we had before, and it has reinforced that thought. Like, where were these kinds of takes this game:

Spoiler:
Subject: Micro 1056: Moderators of the Discord Server [game over]
In post 439, RH9 wrote: By the way, the swap reinforced my reads.
I think that Dwlee was distancing from marci during D1 so that when they were apart and marci flipped red, scum could use this flip to make STD misvote.

In post 663, RH9 wrote:
In post 662, Save The Dragons wrote:why do you think dwlee is town
I don't.
I think that they feel pretty non-committal. Other than voicing a suspicion on marci and stating their intention to reaccess Pooky, they have zero reads on us.
They don't even mention me which according to you, Pooky did, and you used to justify your SR on me.
Subject: Micro 1056: Moderators of the Discord Server [game over]
In post 683, RH9 wrote: Yeah. My read has evolved. I've been starting to reconsider my read on Dwlee. In a vacuum, they actually seem all right though a bit non-committal as seen in .
However, this conflicts with my read on STD, who reads as wrongly tunnelled Town as in his latest stream of posts.
Especially, the amount of insight that he has put in. If I had to bet for scum out of my minigame, I would be forced to say Dwlee despite improvements in my read of them.


A lot of the "takes" he made this game, were him agreeing with things other people said. I think that the closest thing I saw to this in his iso, was him picking up that Cakez dropped his GL scum read over night, but then he completely dropped it after literally just the one post, so :shrug:

Like, just in those three post I grabbed he was pointing out specific thoughts he had on:

A player attempting to distance with another player
The player being overly non-committal with reads
The player having a lack of reads in general
A player appearing to be tunneled town
A player having a lot of insight put into their read.


-----

And this game, it is more just naming off pairs, and saying that they would not work together as a team. For some reason.

Does the fact that all of [GL, Dunn, Cakez] have voiced a meuh preference, when given a fairly even choice between Meuh and RH, mean that going for RH first the correct choice?

Because from my pov, that means either:
-pooky is scum,
- RH+Meuh is then scum team, so order does not matter, or
-a member of the scum team just choose Meuh when they could have taken RH (and could have framed it as having liked my case, and wanting to work with the Mechanically Town Player )

And I just don't see why any if those 3 would feel like they need to bus here, when RH should look like a pretty good miselim option right now.

Like, their vote puts rh at e-1, while every player other then GL has said they would be down for the RH elim.

And with that many people down for the rh elim, it's hard for any one player to look particularly bad for it

Like, from your PoV Cakez, do you think Meuh is scum, and her partner:


-Dunn, started this Meuh wagon with , while RH was sitting at e-1, and I was leading the charge on RH?
-GL, when forced to choose between partner!Meuh or RH, chose to vote for Meuh (putting her at e-1) while saying zero reasons to think that Meuh is scum, meaning he will get very little credit on a Meuh scum flip?
-Pooky, decided they should double fake claim miller this game?

I try my best to treat rep outs as NAI.

Catboi was frustrated with this game, and was not enjoying it, so he repped out. And that can be true for either alignment, without it being a "tactical" rep out.

That being said, I also had an immediate thought that this could make him town, so I understand why you feel the way that you do.

When looking at RH, on his own, I think it is scum.

And when I look at Catboi, prior to his rep out, I went from null->lean scum.

Cakez, walk me though these three posts being back to back in your iso.

Because you go from, they are both even with no preference (but voting RH) -> reaffirming your RH vote -> Meuh is the best elim [to the point of arguing against the RH elim] across these three posts.

Meh. A lot of people don't like going hard towards defending their partners, because they think it will make them look worse then it really does most of the time.

Quietly hoping that the wagon will lose steam on its own is not all that uncommon for scum to do imo.

I don't think that RH+Meuh is my top choice atm, but I have not ruled it out.

I think that I am committing to the idea that RH is the better elim.

The transition from RH e-1, to Meuh e-1 was too smooth and easy. Not a hint of resistance from anyone but me - actually, every single one of the potential Meuh partners happily encouraging the Meuh elim > the RH elim.

That transition feels like the scum team either:
-Does not care which one goes over because both are town.
-Prefer the Meuh elim, beacuse Meuh is town.
-Is exactly Meuh+RH, and therefore could not influence the transition basically at all.

None of those worlds have scum meuh / town RH, which makes me think that RH/Ali is the more correct play.

The thing that I was seeing in particular, was cakez progression on it.

He was agreeable to the RH wagon when it was building up steam (both and ), but easy to back off of the idea when thread focus shifted else where ( and ).

Like he wanted to look good any time the RH wagon seemed inevitable, but also happy to see a possibility for him to make it through the day.

Even after you voted Meuh (), Cakez did not switch over until after both me () and pooky () both voiced support for the Meuh wagon, and that was when cakez was suddenly switching to your Meuh wagon, AND arguing that that be the wagon that goes through ().

That Me->Pooky->
Hamilton Video
-> Cakez sequence of posts felt more like he was responding to the apparent Meuh elim support, then actually having a reason to suddenly think that Meuh is definitavely a better wagon then RH.

Spoiler: that series of posts

And its like, just before this conviction in the Meuh > RH posting, he had them as even.

I am not understanding how cakez got from here, to arguing that Meuh is the definitively better elim.

Meuh's newfound RH scum read does give me the heebiejeebies tho.

But on the other hand, I went through the exact same progression myself.

Arguing that RH seemed town based on his takes this game -> re-reading his iso -> realizing that all of his "takes" were him agreeing with things other people had been saying.

You first went to their iso to quote where you were mind melding, and then only later stated that when you did so you started scumreading them.
Okay but why is that my process here if scum?
This would be logical if when I quoted those posts yesterday, I was sitting comfortable, not likely to be limmed... and then suddenly there was a massive push on me!!!!! :o :o :o
I would then opportunistically push for RH9 being scum to save myself!!!! How evil!!!! How nefarious!!!!!
But that's not what happened? I already had a bunch of votes at that point, the reason for me to push RH9 was already there
Why would I, as scum, be there yesterday and not push RH9, and then today be like "hmm I will invent a scumread here, because I'm definitely more incentivised to do this now than I was before"
Or is your point literally just "omg Meuh had a thought she didn't post???? fake!!!!" did you just see something vaguely odd to poke at and then poked at it? Or do you have an actual reason to think this is scummy in the slightest
During your back and forth with Dunn, were you purposefully ignoring the fact that scum!you would absolutely benefit from developing a scum read of RH in this position?

Or that scum!you could have found it advantageous to call RH town yesterday while watching the elim happen anyways (seeing as how Pooky commented on considering dropping a hammer) in order to be The Person Who Was Right later down the line?

For the record, you first mentioned the RH mind meld, and went back and found the quotes to back it up, when exactly 1 person (Dunn) was voting you.

Vote 1: 1303
Mindmeld quote pull : 1319
Vote 2: 1330

I guess my question is:

Do you think that Scum!Meuh would be calling RH scum here?

IF the answer is yes (it should be) why are you acting like the suggestion that scum!you would need to form a RH scum read here perposterous?

Something in my brain wants to claim that scum!Meuh would be more likely to remember the situation she was in when she made the mind meld claim- because the current state of the thread would likely influenced her course of action

While town!meuh would more easily mix up the time line - because (1)her explaining why she said she mind melded with RH and (2) her wagon forming, would be 2 non-intrinsically linked events that happened in her mind.

(I also don't think that scum!meuh would choose to out and out lie about the order of events)

I don't actually know how much stock I am putting into that take, but it was my first reaction to seeing it her realize that she had the timeline wrong.

I won't be too upset if I am ignored, because I do understand the Meuh suspicions, but I am still leaning towards Ali being the right move for today.

that is an interesting claim, usually in micros those things are ungated, so the fact that it is gated is interesting.
I hope luke still has 2 shots
Did you seriously think that there was a chance I claimed day 1, and then thought I could afford to hold my shots? Lol

The "oh shit, I think I'm hammered when I am not hammered" is more believable when someone has not pointed out that you are not at e-1 less then a page ago.

When she voted for RH9, she posted:
In post 1332, Meuh wrote: VOTE: RH9 I'd rather not die


Doesn't this mean that her vote on RH9 was due to not wanting to be voted out instead of because they started scumreading RH9?
Her vote was not inclucded in my thought.
I was talking about her misremembering the timeline between her wagon forming, and her making . (Which is not a one and done post, but required her to go through RH's iso)

Like the reality of it was, she made 1319 while while she had 1 vote, and RH had just hit e-1. Then her wagon formed. Then she voted RH for survival.

But when she recounted it in 1387, she seemed to think that she was already at e-1 when she wrote 1319.

In post 1447, Dunnstral wrote: SirCakez is potentially looking at the game like this:

One mafia in Dunn/Luke/Pooky/Meuh

One mafia in RH9/Guiltylion

And they suspect both RH9 and Guiltylion, but townread Dunn, Luke, and Pooky


My issue, is that if that is his view of the game -- why was he not saying that Meuh was the correct choice when he wrote , and why did he say he was down for the RH elim in .

Nothing about RH and GL being the vt claims, and Meuh being a Miller claim changed between writing those and him switching to pushing for the Meuh elim.

Like, the whole thing that I find suspicious, is that when RH looked inevitable, he was on the wagon, and when he stopped looking like the inevitable elim, his position shifted to Meuh being The Correct Choice. Not the actual stance.

I generally agree with this. The fact that the scum team did not kill me, feels like they were worried about a protective who would be protecting me for my claim.

With Me+Meuh+Pooky+Ali claimed day 1, if the scum team had a tracker or rolecop, they would be killing AND tracking/rolecopping inside of the rest of Bell/GL/Cakez/Dunn. If you are positing Dunn+Meuh, that means that scum had a 66% chance of finding the protective by shooting+tracking inside this pool.

I don't buy that scum!Tracker or the scum!rolecop would have targeted me night 1.

if "attention should be focused on" both Meuh and GuiltyLion, that would be because one of us is scum with Alisae, yes? given that your vote is on Meuh you're saying the team must be exactly Alisae+Meuh? and how come it's scummy to not talk about me in that world, all three players can't all be scum
.
My general impression of the Ali catch up was : "wow, that sure was light on stances." Like, half the posts of her catch up were to talk about mech. Her only posts about
anything
that
anyone
did at
any point
this game being potentially scum indicative, was directed at pooky. Who she called scum before she read the game.

Anti-spew was a thought that crossed my mind.

But I decided to ask other people for their impression before sharing mine, and Dunn had the same take.

I lowkey think that if Meuh is scum, then Dunn is The Least Likely Partner on the player list.

Dunn voting Meuh, when he was already on an e-1 RH wagon was completely unforced. A lot of people had voiced suspicions on Meuh, and her wagon gaining momentum was not unexpected. Hell, 8 hours before I voted RH, this was my own stance
In post 1255, Lukewarm wrote: I think that my number 1 choice for elimination today is Meuh.
Furthermore, if he WAS partners with Meuh, I don't think he posts , double checking if anyone wants to elim Meuh -- he just takes the opportunity to move his vote back off of her "because of the lack of interest."

At the moment, the only person I would consider moving my vote off of Ali fo, is to Cakez.

I find him scummy, and after Ali's , I am further questioning if my role + his role can even fit in the game.

Open question to the Player List:

If you were choosing between only Catboi/RH/Ali Slot and Cakez, which would you choose?

Ggwp.

I was better with my track then I was with my votes this game lol.

Night 1 was on Dunn and Night 2 was (supposed to be) on GL.

Although the track on Dunn really messed up my read there. Him targeting me (and the way he responded to me tracking him) took him out of my scum pool

I quite liked the set up, double millers and all.

By that point, the only possible partner for cakez was Dunn, which I did not see as a real possibility. I was treating you and cakez bot as confirmed town in the end.

But I also got it wrong (my solve was GL+Meuh), so don't listen to me lol.
