Quote fromQuestion for CROPCIRCLES-----What do you think of Murphy's opinions of me? Not the thinking i'm scummy, but the seemingly high respect he has for me despite what myself and other's have told him about my play.
Xyre, HKKID, and Goatrevolt can answer this too, but i'm curious waht CC thinks here.
Was waiting for CC to answer before I said anything. Now that he has, I think Murph's opinion is perfectly understandable. My take on you is that you're a rather impulsive player (which is a polite way of saying mistake prone), but that when you take enough time to sit down and do analysis it tends to be solid.
I think Gub suddenly claiming not-doc has to be a point in his favor. I don't see how doing that as scum benifits him, and for obvious reasons it makes him a much more likely lynch target, and thus increases his risk.
Whether or not this actually makes him town I don't know. His play prior to the doc claim was rather scummy, and I let the his status as uncounterclaimed doc persuade me as to his alignment. Without that anymore I'm no longer certain. *shrugs* I'm not gonna sit the fence on this forever, I just need a day or two to think things through :p.
To be honest, it doesn't really matter all that much right now, since Baenre's still even scummier. His 741 doesn't do him any favors either. In it he basically says "I killed CPE without waiting to hear you defend him because ummm... 'cause I couldn't even be bothered to read your post. My bad dawg."
Does that sound even remotely believable to anyone else? What sort of townie casts a LYNCHING vote without paying attention to what's going on in the thread? A scum might, because they already knew a CPE lynch was good for them. But a townie? I just can't see a town player completely missing a post at that critical of a point in time.
I'm asking specifically because that doesn't connect the two of you enough to guarantee you're the same alignment. Nobody is going to dispute that Baenre's a newb, the argument is if he's newb-town or newb-scum. And as was mentioned yesterday, there's already a precedent for scum and town being given the same role name in a newb/basic game.
Basically, unless there's something you aren't telling us I don't see how knowing your alignment would in any way confirm baenre. *Note, if there is something you aren't telling us I am in no way asking to hear it, nor am I saying you should confirm/deny the existance of any extra information. Don't spit it out just because I asked.*
As for a newb seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, yeah but that works both ways. A scum baenre is just as likely to realize his actions were scummy when I pointed it out as a town baenre was. The question becomes, is a scum baenre or a town baenre more likely to commit a blatantly scummy action?
And don't even try to use the newb defense for him. Newbs are generally much LESS willing to kill people than veterans are (virtually every newb game contains a discussion of a no-lynch on day 1). That's even more true if the newb in question is paying so little attention to the game that he misses entire posts. Aside from being a poor defense in general, the noob 'explanation' here points more towards a scum baenre than a town baenre in my eyes.
