    This past weekend was draining. I will get my promised read through of Reaverb out soonish.

    @Shadow Your conclusion is that there is scum in two groups, and a third group that contains one person (ergo, he is scum). If Bear is for sure scum from your analysis, why didn't you vote him?
    @KJ: because that analysis was based solely on the Votecount and I think I can do better.

    On the subject of Tubba, his very first game just ended, and he was scum. I think it's worth Isoing him in it, as I think his play has been different so far in this game. Granted, I caught him in that game and I recognize that he might have adjusted his play to counter act me, but I think it's relevant.
    This isn't really alignment indicative. There are a lot of things that influcence how a person plays a game: gameflow, which players are present, the resulting game FEEL based on who's there, what arguments they're making etc, and of course alignment.

    Basically I don't think that"they're different than that other game" is a good metric for alignment. I've actually gotten burned by this once. I can't reemmeber the dudes name though. He was in the most recent uPick... name started with a D. Neat fantasyesque name.
    I would agree to the point that it's not a great metric to a point, but it's not nothing, and it's worth at least having an eye on.

    You had one more for me about wanting some examples from Reaverb's iso of his scumminess, which I'll get for you probably tomorrow, out of time right now.

    Dota, would you do a reads list? You've mostly focused on Jenna today (which is fine, I'm digging what you're doing) but I'm not sure where you stand on the rest of the game.

    @Tubba, who are you asking?

    Just read through Vaimes Iso and...it didn't give me much of anything interesting. He was definitely on A Bear pretty hard, and had some piddly interactions with several other people, but I'm not getting anything out of it.

    It's possible that someone who knows him really well took a gamble that his cageyness was his way of trying to hide a PR, but there is nothing to substantiate that.

    He also noted down Jenna as town. Anyone who knows Jenna; would she kill someone would was likely to defend her?

    A thought that may have been expressed by Yours Truly a fortnight ago.
    A lot has changed in a fortnight, including the deaths of 2 people on the wagon. Care to expand on this more; has anything changed since then?

    Damn I never read EL's posts carefully. Didn't have time.


    Yeah he got super aggressive page 1. I shouldn't have backed off
    Me neither.

    Reading through Grapefruit's post and I see that he brought up the Shadow wagon and Shadow's comment from earlier:

    Quote from shadowlancerx »
    Dota
    Vaimes
    Voxx
    Osie
    Jenna
    ---
    Who among you is scum?
    Or make the case all 5 of those names are town, because I don't buy that.


    Vaimes and Osie are now confirmed town, Voxx is a strong town read for me and I know I'm town(even though most disagree).I'm still uncertain of where I stand on Jenna, but would scumJenna vote Shadow to L-2 with no reasoning?

    Could it be possibile that this was an all-town wagon? And if so, what then?
    Then it becomes a question of who stayed off and why. You're not wrong though that it's not impossible for it to be all town.

    I really think confidence is one of the keys to this game as either alignment. Before you give up, try a game and over exaggerate your confidence as either alignment Jey. Trust your self. If you die, you die. It's just a game.
    This.
    If you treat someone's scum read on you as if it's ridiculous, it's really hard for them to keep on you.

    Reaverb: Your play this game has felt more about pushing to lynch people rather than pushing to find alignments. For instance Tubba; you pushed him for a certain progression he made, then when you realized your missed a post, you didn't really reevaluate that read so much as seem disappointed you couldn't push him more. You've also been a little jumpy/preemptive with keeping people from pushing you. Your first two posts of the game are an example of this, as well your post where you throw out percentage likelihoods of Colin and KJ being scum then immediately cover it with "but those are just eyeball'd, don't hold me to them".

    Just reading through your posts there's a bunch of small markers all over that are scummy in a vacuum as well, and not a lot of indicators of a townie mindset that I can see.

    @Reaverb, I suppose I'm being slightly difficult. I will go over why I think you're scum and tried to wagon you on my busride to work tomorrow.
    Ha, busride autocorrected to buddies. My phone knows that its primary function is Mafia.

    Hi grapefruit. Those were the 5 people that voted me to start the game. Seems unlikely that a 5 person, page 1/2 wagon would be pure.

    But really though, you think my back and forth with Voxx is scum theater, or even that we are both scum individually? I just don't buy that.
