It's not really odd if people are just being casual with their treats, though?

It is IF they are on the same scum team and wish to claim the treat prize for themselves, so casual flippant responses like "he has a cat avatar" should be raising eyebrows.

Most players may see a vote leader for the treats and just toss them that way out of apathy.

All I'm saying is the treats are the hook to this game and we should be giving them out cautiously instead of casually

I agree. I only trust myself, thus voting the treat to myself.

That does remind me that RF seemed to think it was suspicious that people were self treating.

RF, can you explain further about why you think that is?

Do you expect the same thing to happen with lynches this game or are you specifically concerned with treats?

Just treats.

Don't know how powerful they are, but Asiina says we want our teams to have them. So I'd much rather we reach a consensus on treats at the end of the day, rather than just tossing them out there.
I think it will add an extra layer of scum hunting to the game to see who favours who with their treats.

Why game the mod about treats. I think using it as a utility to scum hunt is kind of bunk, or rather will prove to be bunk.

I guess I'm just not understanding how throwing around treats early is different than throwing around votes early. Positive effect, negative effect, whatever, but it's still a vote at the end of the day. I'm not advocating not discussing treat picks, but this level of concern two days before deadline seems forced.

I don't think your point is bad, Inf. I just am not sure about Somber's phrasing of "You have a good point, except here is the excuse that makes your point worthless."

Uh, there is no way that Asiina didn't already intend for us to do that.

If we don't treat(hehe) them seriously, then that gives scum free reign to get extra powers.

I honestly thought this went without saying. It's a no brainer that we will be examining both votes and treats on future days.

Accurate in Soldiers, not entirely inaccurate in Shine 2.

Also to answer your question I suppose it's not inherently scummy to treat yourself/campaign for them, but I tend to find it suspicious when people try really hard to power themselves up

Good morning, friends.

Hey, AA. Do you have any reads? Did you have time to catch up Monday night? I am asking because so far I have very little to go off of from your posting and I am getting quite curious. It's interesting to me that despite having little to say you stopped in to talk about your treat shortly after we started discussing the treat votes on me.

Sorry I haven't, in all honesty I shouldn't have signed up for all these games but I am going to stick it out and try not to lurk as much. Yesterday was my bday so I didn't do anything maf related after work.

I can see why it is curious though. I'm intrigued about the treat mechanic, but I do think it's a bad idea to try and case from treat allotments, I mean yes we should try to get treats for ourselves, but there also has to be a majority and I picked you for the simplest of all reasons as explained.

Play wise give me a few hours and I'll have some actual reads, things are slowing down at work and I'll have a chance to scrutinize.
