hey! keane! I propose we all post what our scumtells are. it worked pretty well when I was king of a thread. do you approve??!

anyone who lies about their scumtells is scum obviously!

I tend to post in big blocs more as scum as opposed to a constant stream of drivel. I'm also a little nicer when I'm scum.

My scumtell is posting a lot of big elaborate cases and also lots of shitposting. If I'm posting a lot I'm scum.

I don't know if I have any. I try to play my standard game regardless of alignment. But occasionally, if I'm on a scum team with someone with an important power or something, I won't go after them even if I normally would. For the most part I bus ruthlessly though and go after the same people I would if I were town.

Real talk, KB your scumtell is that your scum cases aren't as good as your town cases. They don't feel as logically consistent, and are always quite a bit weaker and require more stretching to fit.

Also you do tend to buddy up when you're scum.

My last forum mafia experience was me being a cop, and then winning by doing pretty much nothing whilst the scum killed themselves and/or got hung.

I intend for a repeat performance.

cool cool.

unfortunately I have no scumtells, so :(

but a way you can find out if I am scum is if I solidly defended by scumbuddies all game, since I am very anti-bussing. I recently have begun to do slight, very light bussing to play with my meta, but I would never shoot my team in the foot so badly as to Actually Bus them, even if it'd be "sooo not my meta!!", because that'd be a good way to lose the game.

here is an example of a recent scum game. You can also tell I stayed back and didn't make as many cases as I normally would; though that's not a perfect tell since I often get in people's grills regardless of alignment, if I'm hanging back it's because I'm struggling to engage with the game, which happens way more often as scum than town.

here is a game exemplifying the hanging back-ness.

luckily in this game I am TOWN :sax:

I've only scummed once, like two years ago, so I don't know that I can really claim an MO. For what it's worth, I was very assertive and active that game, but it was a deliberate attempt to match my Town style from the game I'd played just prior...so...I dunno what can really be gleamed there.

Opop modded the game I was scum, and has also played with me when I've been town (actually I guess I was a survivor with town aligned goals in that game, technically). He might have some insight if he remembers those games at all.

Otherwise I dunno really.

It was! Fracas in Caracas was super fun and where I got this avatar (to replace the crazy giant pirate dick eating avatar someone else bought me because of the same game, lol)

I started out the game as a normal human being but ended up playing a super pushy game trying to make people post and force a win. I'm still kinda proud it worked. That was a great victory. :banjo:

My answer was almost exactly the same as the one you just approved of. And as a result of my conversation with Asiina, there is tons of info out there now.

It's exactly the same as the one you approve of. Really, try to point out the type of information he shared that I didn't. We both said we try to play the same game regardless of alignment. We both identified something we do that may be outside of that. We both said we don't know of any, really.

And then after that, me and asiina tackled some other stuff which sheds further light.

I mean it guys in the game where I was king I had people do this (seemingly pointless) exercise and day 4 it single-handedly nabbed a scum because by that point everyone got into their usual styles and DarkFact had, to a T, played what he said was his scum game.

it isn't at all the same thing. FoxTerrier said some of the same words but the way she said it indicated she was thinking about it clearly and was trying to be forthright.

you said it flippantly, like you didn't actually want people to know your scumtells, you just wanted to give a bogus answer to fill the void.
