Oh, woe is me!

Anyhow, don't vote for me. It's a bad choice. I've never played a game with Gulag dolls, but what I read of their posting looked pretty identical to capps subversively nonsensical ramblings.

I'm vanilla town this game.

Anyhow, now that I've seen some flips it's time to do some lovely casing. I'll report back in in the next few hours with a whole heap of conjecture that I hope will convince you all of my town innocence and who I think is a scumbo.

Someone got a scum, but it wasn't the town lynch. So why would you claim we? When town did exactly what I said they were doing, lynching someone just for the sake of it.

"just for the sake of it" seems to imply that zero thought went into the lynch, when clearly WWM got lynched for a reason.

This logic seems incomplete. I advocated no lynch because there was hardly any real game content and I didn't want us to mislynch even if that is the norm.

Hi, hello, yes.

I return to shade being thrown every which way... and Slamburger shows up outta nowhere with a meta case?

Also:

Ghostly Gangsta posted:

a completely hilarious 180 when everyone is pushing for it minutes from deadline. My god, it's SO funny lolol.

:rolleyes:

Going to pull an E+ defense, '-in basically every case' implies that there are cases when this would not be the case.

Jack-poo poo happened over there weekend, even leading up to deadline there was hardly any real content. That being the case, and voicing dissent on the town's bloodlust, I put forth the no-lynch suggestion in earnest. BUT we've already been over how that's a terrible move and is super anti-town, and how we learned more from the two dead town. (:rolleyes: x infinity)

Only because someone lucked out and vigged a scum in the night does today start favorably, but even so we could have avoided lynching a town yesterday and that shot still could have been made.

Your arguments against me hinge on meta about how the game should be played. I play along with the poo poo, and I'm the bad guy for it. Ridiculous.

I'll steer clear of how you were blatantly wrong about town getting lunched instead of scum (given that I made the same mistake about a town PR flip) and focus on the fact that you sound really defensive here - I think you would act a little more calmly unless you had knowledge that town wouldn't that makes your case crap, possibly because you know who scum are?

(I'm glad I'm such a cornerstone of this community that I now have a defense named after me - now if only I knew if you were insulting me or not)

Also, missed this earlier:

Ghostly Gangsta posted:

The reason was to avoid no-lynch correct? Even so, you placed your vote on Mithross when everyone else abandoned it, and you saw what the votes looked like before deadline... Your reasoning is:

That was my second-to-last post that game day; I believed Somber, and I didn't get a chance to check how votes had evolved before the day ended. So. Thanks for assuming you know what I'm up to.

You seem really hellbent on controlling and steering the discussion and I am not a fan of this. You are disagreeing with what most of us consider to be good day 1 gameplay (and I should note it's not the disagreement that bothers me - it's your refusal to drop it and move on) and, frankly, the number of clear mistakes you're making during this discussion is piling up.

Also, just a brief point: it is possible but unlikely that Somber could be a scum godfather? We've had non-vanilla town and although I don't know enough about Hotline Miami's characters to really guess what the flavor would be, it's not mechanically impossible. I consider Somber town enough based on his content so far, but I just wanted to throw this out before we all get too far into talking confirmed town.

Oh my god you're completely incoherent. Your pit could use improvement - there's still a few feet of dirt before rock bottom.

Look at GG's posts and tell me they're useful to town. Like, I don't think they're inherently scummy (I find very few things to be so) but I really don't see a lot of genuine towniness in them.

weird, why mourn someone who barely played?

I would assume because this slows or stops the flow of masks. I haven't gotten a token yet so I dunno the exact nature of them. Maybe we started with 3 tokens from the setup and we relied on PRs to hand out more during the night?

Also, any explanation for two nights with two kills? Is someone nightvigging? SK? Did we walk into a Fire and Ice setup?

Mostly because after Skyrim Mafia I'm really nervous about the existence of a town multi-shot nightvig running rampant everywhere.

(Also, to be fair, the flavor of this game could totally support a lot of night kills from different people)

I wouldn't be surprised if at least one scum (or anti-town) is lurking, yeah. I also wouldn't be surprised if there was at least one scum among the higher post-counters. Amusingly, you have a higher post count than me. Also amusingly, you've never made a post longer than three lines. Can you explain how you have more posts than a good chunk of the remaining players, yet have contributed less than Mithross?

Dec 30, 2006







Okay let's get this dipshittery on the road

First, remember next game to put in a smidge of a sliver of a modicum of effort. I have no idea how you made it this far. ##vote Big Nothing

Future thoughts: I can't buy Wall Monitor as scum, period. Scum arranging a 1v1 where either player could end up dunked seems highly unfeasible, and his mask enabler claim makes sense. Captain Foo has been driving the game, which is a good thing in this low-post climate - I don't think I'd really consider him until maaaaybe tomorrow if something changes. A scum Foo could easily be no-posting like half of us and getting away super clean. And I'm not voting myself, hurr.

This leaves me with Big Nothing (elle oh elle eye are elle), CPig has been posting alright but there's a lot of meta-reasoning and his constant back-and-forth with Big Nothing is kinda tiring. He doesn't feel likely as scum compared to the last two players. Quidnose is a yawning void - like, the absolute bare minimum of content. I could see him coasting. Mithross isn't much better.

I could buy WWM/Big Nothing/Mithross or Quidnose or maybe WWM/Big Nothing/CPig. If BN flips town I'd be looking at WWM/Mithross/Quidnose or CPig.

I'd like to state that I wouldn't raise the possibility of Somber being a godfather and then allow him to be killed, proving the flip. That would be the stupidest play imaginable. There's no possible scum team that would back me up on that.

Not that that affects you voting BN or no-dunking I guess.

If there was an SK he's been really loving restrained, which is odd - either that or thr SK is a lurker who keeps loving up the deadlines.

Epsilon Plus
Dec 30, 2006







Good point.

After thinking the most likely explanation is that town got off some nightkills that were not claimed. A SK wouldn't hold off killing this many nights. If we had a jailer stopping it, they would have claimed when we had a night with just one kill.

This makes no sense because we've had flips primarily with no masks, haven't we? If anyone has been killing people, they'd have to be alive.
