I don't really like the case against Rarity either because fakeclaiming on your first contentpost seems like a super dumb thing to do, but straight-up claiming your actual flavor is pretty dumb too.

It boils down to the fact that you're just really going down this crazy rabbit hole. I don't see the point you're trying to make, but I recognize that you're doing it in the pursuit of scumhunting.

I agree that Byers is doing a decent job of scumhunting. That does not absolve him, as he points out himself:

Byers2142 posted:

The two-team set-up raises issues, because scum can, if they wish, actively and fully scum hunt because they know there are scum out there. But it's also a trap for them, one I think that Ecco's fallen into.

Right now if I had to peg one person as being most likely to be scum I'd say Byers. He's persistently overstating a case that doesn't have much support and trying to dictate the lynch. Witness his "offer": Ecco has one (1) vote right now and Byers would have us believe that an Ecco lynch is a foregone conclusion. It feels like Byers is trying to dominate the town discourse in order to shield his team. He probably does think he's got a decent case on Ecco being scum but that's secondary to the objective of keeping the spotlight off of him and his scumbuddy.

Sandwolf posted:

I'll give you possible, but likely? I dunno. If he doesn't let off this tunnel-vision it's going to look scummier and scummier, and I doubt he's willing to commit that hard to white noise posting when usually he's pretty good at this game.

I dunno, as long as Byers isn't letting blatant scumposting pass by unnoticed I don't think focusing on Ecco is necessarily hurting him. Several people have already come out and declared townie feelings for him based on it!

I seriously don't mind being lynched. I like early day 1 the most, and after that, I start trailing off a bit so it's no biggy. I am assuming I'm getting lynched as of now because of the vote count and the fact that I won't be around to redirect the lynch later. So, if I must go down, the best thing I can do for the town is provide as many connections (like I'm doing with you now, sport) to other players so they have information to go off of once I'm gone.

There's still... 4+ hours, which is prime posting time for a lot of people. So it's not really a foregone conclusion.

Still think Byers is the best scum candidate. I agree that there are likely scum hiding with their vote on you, though.

Even if the setup spec on the town role PMs is entirely off the mark, the conclusion that Ecco jumped to is one that scum would have a very, very hard time making on short notice.

EccoRaven posted:

chili and narcotics are scum

##vote chili

This post only makes sense if Ecco is town and also has the same "get a reward for hammering scum player" mechanic that Asiina claimed.

If Ecco didn't have a boon mechanic in her own role PM, she would have no reason to expect that Asiina's claim was a common feature to town roles in this game. The only logical assumption she could make is that it was a unique feature of Asiina's role. From her point of view there would be no reason for Chili and Narc to know about it. So we can conclude that Ecco has the boon mechanic in her role too.

This alone doesn't prove anything--with two scumteams it is entirely possible that scum have the same feature, so maybe Ecco is a scum but still knew about the boon mechanic from her own PM. But finding out that Asiina also had a boon mechanic would not have the same significance to a scum player--a town player would have seen Asiina's claim as an emergent pattern that could be used as a scum hunting tool whereas a scum player would have seen the opposite, that players of all alignments have the boon mechanic and that it doesn't have anything to tell us about alignment. (Indeed, a scum player might even see a scum fakeclaim in Asiina's claim, since Asiina claimed her role included the same mechanic that they, a scum player, also had.)

It's conceivable--barely--that even if Ecco were scum she could have been thinking fast enough to suppress what she would know about the setup as scum and puzzle out the conclusion that town players would logically be led to, but I think the speed with which she came to her conclusion and made her post is a good indicator that she came to her conclusion honestly. (Note that I make no such claim about my own endorsement of her theory, since it would have been easier for scum to spot the pattern and jump on board after a town player pointed it out.)

It also helps that the scum thought fiery_valkyrie was dangerous enough to kill last night--for one of the scum teams, more important even than the claimed watcher. f_v's only contributions were 1) jumping on the Chili case early and 2) quietly agreeing with Ecco's conclusion on the Chili/Narc vote--and 1) did not harm scum at all, so she certainly wasn't targeted for that. Ecco (and to a lesser extent I) are much easier lynch targets and the scumteam (Byers) would likely have been banking on getting out ahead of the debate D2 to silence Ecco/me.

EXAKT's mistake is irrelevant. The important part is people's reactions to the slip. Narc remains a viable scum candidate for other reasons, mainly his massively hammed up "i am noob how 2 mafia???" routine punctuated by scumposts.

Also, your argument appears to be that Ecco and I are the most incompetent scumteam ever. I'd expect scumbros to be a little more subtle. Maybe something like this.

Completely 100% legit action claims, as according to noted Mafia Expert (tm) Byers2142. Facing a serious cop softclaim from nationally ranked pro scum hunter CapitalistPig and realizing she was only 8 votes away from hammer, Ecco panicked and made a sincere attempt at fakeclaiming doc in the hope that this masterfully crafted claim would stave off her impending lynch



or, failing that, force the town to reveal one of their most powerful roles.

I am annoyed that Ecco is trolling this much considering she's the only player I am willing to put any trust at all in and I don't want her to get herself killed/discredited, but I think goofing around D2 is not nearly as scummy as the ridiculous stretch lengths Byers is going to in order to paint these as serious posts worth adding to his ramshackle case against Ecco.

I'm not seeing frustrated town. Frustrated town players don't contradict themselves--and reality--in order to bend the facts to their case when convenient. Bad town players might, but as Byers frequently reminds us, he is smart and we are dumb and bad at mafia, so if his argument is terrible (it is) we must assume that it's deliberate.

She had given up, which is why for a while it looked like a crazy person posting. Unfortunately, the only people who seemed interested in listening to my case yesterday were Chili, f_v, and Asiina, and now no one is even willing to consider it.

This is pretty slick. Note that Byers cherry-picks the three confirmed town players as being on his side, even though f_v was lukewarm and Asiina didn't buy in at all. It's very, convenient to be able to paint yourself as a long-suffering martyr supported only by the Truest of Townies, who luckily happen to be dead and can't disagree. Other people also addressed Byers's case and some even agreed, but they're not confirmed townie, so it's convenient to pretend they don't exist so that Byers can play the Only Sane Man card.

Note that at the same time that Byers is bemoaning the fact that Town Is So Goddamned Dumb and the only people who agree with him are the dead confirmed townies, he insists that Ecco is on her last legs, she's going to be lynched any minute now (just like she has for the past 48 hours or so), there is so much pressure on Ecco she is scumslipping left and right oh god the humanity.
