plus our fearless moderator ******* loves no lynching. i'd believe he designed the game to make it the right choice.
nicely done ashley
Quote from Seppel »It's 2016 and MTGS has a UI from 1996. Thanks, Curse.
Quote from Seppel »I can't do much since I've been at conventions these past two weeks as well as maintaining a dayjob. You should be thankful that I'm posting now.
I'd rather just lynch Jobie and deal with finding the last scum tomorrow.
Quote from Sir Chris »
I am curious if you are capable of acknowledging the convenience that since multiple people have managed to really dig their claws into Wheat now you go "oh yeah, I'll totally lynch that guy.
Quote from Me »I am curious if you are capable of acknowledging the convenience that I am quite aware of how I interacted with Wheat yesterday will make me look bad today if Wheat is lynched and flips scum.
Quote from GJ »I....literally don't know how you can say with a straight face I had zero interaction with WG day 1. I had TONS of it, but the difference was that I was reading him and defending him as town, going after Sir Chris. I had TONS of interaction with WG, and my dynamic towards him did switch to reading him more scum, just as my read on Sir Chris started leaning more towards town. I can't point to a single post where that switch happened, but day 2, I just started to inch farther and farther away from a scum Sir Chris and a town WG.
Quote from GJ »So you think all 3 of us have just been giving each other reach-arounds, and everyone else is town this game?
Quote from GJ »@Wheat: I see it is likely a town read. You are really flip floppy in your reads as town, and did the same 180 on Iso in XKCD mafia where you were town reading him day 1, scum reading him days 2/3. From what I have seen in your scum games, you tend to be pretty static in your town reads, and seldom seemed to switch, like you were in Star Trek. I can't remember true name, but I believe there was a similar pattern as well.
Quote from GJ »Which would be fine, except I don't see a single reason why you decided WG was the correct person to pursue. Why are you reading Wheat as scum?
Quote from Sir Chris »Seppel you have lost me I thought Proph was your second good town read, now it is Taredas? Where did Proph go?
Quote from Seppel »Wheat reminded me that Proph is scum.
Quote from Seppel »(ง'̀-'́)ง fite me
It's annoying that nobody is scumreading me and just a few people are being suspicious of me and DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT.
Quote from Seppel »HEY CYAN
If Rhand comes in to hammer me, the game's in your hands. I absolve myself of any trainwreck that happens after my lynch. I've already posted everything that needs to be posted to find the scum.
GJ goes up to leaning town because he's still participating and his posts are (dare I say it) good.
Cythare goes down to gray for doing uck all nothing.
Here's how the rest of the game should go:
N2: Rhand dies while protecting Cyan (or they block Cyan + kill Rhand)
D3: Lynch Wheat
N3: Cyan dies (or Rhand if still alive)
D4: Lynch Azrael
N4: Taredas dies
We endgame with:
1. Sir Chris
4. Gentleman Johnny
NL if you want Proph or Chris to pointlessly die.
Cythare and GJ duke it out. GJ probably wins due to posting more. We find out if we've won.
Quote from Az »
I'd like to pretend my planned contingency reread on Sir Chris might have had a chance of catching him, but he played a very strong game. I don't think I would ever have grabbed him unless we were in an endgame situation. Major congrats are in order. *tip of the hat*
And for someone who believes his scum game is terrible, Proph's putting in a valiant effort.
Very proud of the scum
Quote from Hunt »
I don't believe you would EVER say the phrase "I can't back that up either" as town! What caused you to slip at that moment? Was it really pressure as you mentioned?
Quote from Sir Chris »Scum Chris totally puts off cooking to play a game of mafia too, Cyan. My dedication is without question as either alignment, please always read OoG comments by me as null, that is a Law of the Land where I am from and I would be uncomfortable with anyone thinking "chris is town because he mentioned a holiday tomorrow" as that's dirty. My town game doesn't need cheap points like that.
I understand your emotions though. I've been there. There are certain games I just had to have. Maybe I'll tell you some stories after the game.
Quote from ZeDorkSlipeur »Congratulations to the scum-team, it's rare to see such a splendid recovery from such a terrible Day 1.
I will echo Rhand's post above: had the town actually bothered to be thorough with its re-reads, it is entirely possible the game could have ended the other way. Also, there was a distinct lack of non-PBPA re-read. What happened to wagon analysis? Or to interaction analysis?
All in all, the mafia strongly deserved this victory.
Quote from Chris »I think wagon and interaction analysis would have been very brutal in trying to catch me this game. I bussed Wheat so hard even Wheat thought I was being spiteful. Hard to come back from that if you're town.
Quote from Prophylaxis »Quote from Chris »I think wagon and interaction analysis would have been very brutal in trying to catch me this game. I bussed Wheat so hard even Wheat thought I was being spiteful. Hard to come back from that if you're town. This is true. I tried to look at vote counts and interactions and it was so easy to incriminate a fellow townie using them (Az, Seppel, GJ all had mediocre Wheat interactions).
This is something to keep in mind though for my future town games, since seeing how easy it is to manipulate one of my most favorite tools is concerning.
