There is a turbo lunch option so popular, the candidate is self voting? Is something wrong with Opop's software?

Because it's dumb. With 17 in a game we could actually get enough d1 chat to make a better decision than just a turbo.

To me, day 1 has always been useless joking and empty posts so people can raise their post count to avoid suspicion. That being said, I don't play this often. Have there been any games with good day 1 discussions not borne from a stupid scum mistake?

Obviously. We could get enough d1 chat with any number of players. Opop was at -6 and one of the votes he had was a self vote. There was no real risk there at all.

On another level, don't you love turbos?

usually you're right. but I was in a couple games recently (The Breach and The Kill) that both had really good D1 discussion, especially The Breach. it's not common but it's not rare. you might find 3 games of its kind in a booster pack of 13.

I didn't look at votefinder, I just saw a bunch of votes and then somebody was like "oh is this common" so I responded. also turbos can be fun but they're only fun when they're against somebody who is vehemently anti-turbo.

Yes, generally the camp is sort of split but for the people who actually talk on d1, there's a lot to get out.

I've always said that the biggest benefit to talking a lot in D1 is that it gives a stronger base to d2 discussions.

Also, almost all reads come from scum mistakes, that's the nature of the game. You aren't going to spot scum mistakes if you don't give them a chance to make them though.

Yeah, this is about right. It's absolutely a crapshoot but it can turn good if people are willing to put in the effort. I mean, this thread has four pages, and here on page four it has it's first serious posts. We just need a couple of people to be willing to put reads out there and we are on our way to h.

He just seems overly engaged and a bit self-conscious about his vote on me. Not a slam-dunk but I feel comfortable voting on it.

If anybody is overly-engaged it's MMM but there's nothing scummy about it. It's just drumming up discussion. If anything MC ED is not engaged enough just due to too much ramonechat, which is natural. i'm not going to fault somebody for being artificially "not engaged enough" on page 4 of a game

it's unfortunate but in most games you can't skip ahead past the number of existing pages, so many of us try to generate content in order to increase pagecount manually.

D1 scum deaths are actually almost always bad in the long wrong. You lose the interactions and they may as well have been 3P
