fair enough. but ia and stg have made firm claims that they wont move their votes, so our only options are ia, me, or rf/you if you vote yourself lol.

Back in my day... Scum claims got taken seriously.

This newfangled, farfetched, dadgum, drawing out and endless posturing.

Geesh!

I am going to come back to the scumclaim, I just want to put my thoughts down:

Scientastic posted:

Earlier points

I don't feel the need to rehash my earlier points around interactions with PMush, from that flip, RF and IA are scummiest, and STG and Steak look town.

Let's have a look at OA:

Idle Amalgam:

Idle Amalgam posted:



Honestly, I can't find a single mention or interaction with OA in IA's post history. Which is really weird. Scummy weird, because generally you would expect some level of interaction, and usually it's because scum are afraid to interact with a buddy and reveal too much.

Steak:

Mr. Steak posted:

Amnistar posted:

##vote Obama

I don't agree with either the RF or DB cases, personally. Gonna stick with my read here. Obama feels like scum.

Also, I appologize for my lack of participation, real life has been busy.

if you are town then youre doing your darndest to be not helpful

Mr. Steak posted:

db and rf both have compelling cases for them. the case on oa is just a huge shrug.

and why exactly do you not see the cases on db and rf?

Mr. Steak posted:

as for why i think oa is towny enough to disregard today:

pmush pretty transparently tried to get me lunched and oa was probably the most vocal person outside of scientastic to attack her for that push. i think a scum team would be more cooperative w each other's plans? lol

Not great from Steak on OA here. I don't like his reasoning for putting OA into his townie bracket. However, I still don't see him acting the way he did with PMush and being scum. The OA interaction makes me less sure of that, but Steak is still on my townie list.

RF:

Retro Futurist posted:



Again, nothing.

STG:

sirtommygunn posted:



I think we were dead lucky that OA got killed (presumably by Amnistar, unless someone else wants to claim credit for it) because he seems to have ghosted his way through the game. I can only see anything that constitutes an opinion on OA from one living player. And while I wrote that this made me suss when I wrote it, looking at it now, I think the fact that Steak mentioned him at all when other players seem to have been content to let him lurk without commenting on his alignment makes me think Steak is townier, rather than scummy. I'm not going back to edit my opinion though, gently caress that.

Scientastic

So that's a pretty boring way of saying that my opinions haven't changed since the PMush execution: IA and RF are scummy, Steak and STG are townie.

Scientastic

Now, onto the scum claim.

I do not understand the scum claim.

I don't understand it as a scum play, I don't understand it as a town play, I don't understand it as anything other than a jester, and I don't even really get that.

Scientastic
Mar 1, 2010

TRULY scientastic.


I don't agree with RF that a scum player would just give up and scum claim to give up the game. If that were the goal, they could just post a mod quote or fake a day action, or do something that just throws the game.

I think Steak is trying to go for the angle that IA is town and has a bomb, which he is hoping kills a scum player swooping in to hammer, but I'm not sure that works either. Correct me if I am wrong, Steak, obviously my interpretation of your posts could be incorrect.

The only thing I can think that makes sense is that IA is a jester, but even that doesn't make sense to me, because surely there are ways of doing that that aren't so bizarre and obvious: I am WIFOMing myself into a hole with that one.

Scientastic
Mar 1, 2010

TRULY scientastic.


And so, in the absence of understanding of the scumclaim, I think I need to go back to the posts and vote for the person I think is actually most likely to be scum.

And I think that's RF. I don't care if that makes people cross for not ending the day by hammering IA, I am going to stick to what I think is the right course of action, and vote for the person I think is scum.

##Vote RF

I appreciate that there are several hours until deadline, happy to move my vote to avoid a NL, but I think this is the right choice.

Scientastic

Also, I have a massive problem with the idea of IA having a bomb and this being a gambit:

The scenarios here are:

IA is the last scum and has no bomb, and is just trying to throw the game. In which case, he should just throw it, and I don't think his claim can be taken at face value.

IA is scum and has a bomb. The only way that makes sense as a gambit is if there are in fact two scum left (3t2s), in which case he takes a townie with him and we lose the game, as a successful NK means scum control the execution.

IA is town and has no bomb. So we lose a townie for no reason, and with one scum left, are in 3-person LYLO. With two scum left (I seriously doubt there are two scum left), we lose the game immediately.

IA is town and has a bomb. If a townie hammers him, we lose two townies and either lose the game if/when the 1 remaining scum player successfully NKs, or immediately if there are two scum.

There is no scenario here that makes sense to me, but the scum claim being taken on face value makes the least sense of all options. It strikes me as a misguided town gambit by a player who is trying to do something crazy to shake things up.
