hmmmm... wolfy, imo

also, YPM seems rather overeager to spill blood. He's pushing Proctor, whom I think is more likely newbie town than newbie scum.

something about Somber feels off to me. He isn't being his hyper-aggressive townie self thus far, which I feel like he would be if he were VT, as he claims.

I kind of agree on YPM, but that's also sort of his style. It's weird to go after someone as inexperienced as Proctor for such spurious reasons though.

Ya I don't really like f_v agreeing with my post about Somber. I honestly don't even know what there was to agree with, as I was mostly starting a conversation at Somber who has since dropped it. I assume he really was drunk.

Amoeba102
Jan 22, 2010



That post by F_v definitely stands out in their post history because I have no idea what they are talking about - not necessarily scummy. But the rest is mild, not anything to think they are scum over. They took Epsilon's joke at face value but I don't really see how that can give an alignment call. I guess I'd really like to see more from fiery.

Exakt, can you elaborate more on what's scummy about YPM's play. And is it just Somber playing less aggressive that's giving you vibes, anything else about what he's done?

I don't like his play. Seem a bit opportunistic with their bandwagon on the Somber turbo and their reasoning for now thinking Somber is scummy feels convenient to me.

To be fair, I've only played one game with YPM, where he was scum, and the main similarity is that he was extremely shitposty there, and seems to be doing so here as well. The read on him is more gut than anything else really.

As far as Somber, it's largely the lack of aggression that's pinging for me. I'm used to see him throw more votes around, even on day 1. Not only that, but he's using a lot of argument from meta, which seems out of character for his town game.

Plenty of airport terminals have excellent dining options. There is a lovely John Elway's steakhouse in the "B" terminal of this very same airport.

Don't question me on this, I spend a great deal of time dining in airports. Most at least have a Chili's Too or something of that quality. Best I could do tonight was some grody pizza place. Even the McDonalds was closed for repairs.

Also do you have any game-related thoughts?

I thought they needed elaboration. But EXAKT reads as genuine in his response, so I doubt my call about conveniently finding Somber scummy. And if he's genuine then I'm not confident in my read any more at all. ##unvote

If you read those posts I linked earlier of Somber's scum game, he pretty much exhibited zero aggression and did nothing.

If we can't kill f_v can we get somber at least?

Normally it's on me to pick a fight and get content going, but that's not really the case here. My lynch seems kinda foregone and I just don't particularly have the gumption to fight it that hard this time. When I'm not leading the game I often end up fading into the background of the game.

This is why I think that meta arguments are largely hogwash.

Exact, I'm not poo poo posting, it's called playing mafia really well. Look it up. I'll have to string you up after we murder your scum buddy ##vote Epsilon.

I don't see somber as scum. Going by meta, this somber is the exact opposite of every scum somber I've seen. I'm not saying he's town, since I think somber changes up his playstyle a little bit (as do I) making meta kind of useless against him.

There's not much more I can say about Chic. Quoting the posts I found scummy would be meaningless out of context. She looks like she's faking involvement by commenting on neutral points and not reading into alignment when there was a big dust-up going on around her.

Let's say for argument's sake that I've had tunnel vision on Epsilon and didn't read why Chic is scum. Can you give it to me in 3 sentences or less?

Giving the thread a reread: Proctor Cat seems new but endeavors to be helpful. They also have not posted in like two days though. I don't buy Somber as scum currently given his work-stuff excuse but I could see it in the right light. Ernie is doing some A-grade posting IMO and I'm really surprised f_v's vote on him has been around for this long.

Chic Trombone has all of three game-related posts and none of them feel like they're hitting even the lowest-effort bar. I think Chic is the safest vote for D1. Sorry ##vote Chic Trombone
