Hello all. Yes Battleship is the answer. Wow this seems like a pretty open game seeing as the role post has like a dozen roles in it. In a game of 17 are we looking at like 5 scum or something?

I've probably asked how many scum there should be in all my previous games which is like 4 or so and I've been town in all of them! I like to have an estimate of how many scum there likely are

The number of 3ps I think has gotta be 0 or 1 since the only third party role listed is serial killer.

Met voted Hiipfire and in response TT voted Met and in response KB voted TT and in response Pmom voted KB. Thats funny

Fast Luck
Feb 2, 1988



I think the word bullying is pretty loaded these days. Maybe you should have said "strongarming" and it would've gone over better. Either way, I'm feeling like both TT and KB are town at this point. If they were both scum though it would be some pretty hilarious busing.

I'm going to ##vote Met... My reasoning isn't that strong but during the Awful Survivor game he was really protective and supportive of Hiip to the point it may have been detrimental to his game, so trying to policy vote Hiip off the bat seems out of character.

Fast Luck
Feb 2, 1988



Also I think pmach has been fed up with dying on d1 in the past so I think that's the reasoning for TT trying to aggressively steer the vote off her

I'm willing to look at them, just tell me what I'm looking for. Games with both you and Hiip where you tell people to lynch him on D1? Because I have a feeling I'm not going to find anything like that.

Weak e-bragging, made me want to be more social by inviting me to Awful Survivor (which is why I decided to join this game) , registered on SA before me. That's three strikes for you!

##vote Fast Luck

And since I didn't list them for my first vote on TT, his strikes were: Asked not to be voted, only name after mine on the alphabetical list of players, name contains alliteration.
Since all three of those strikes are totally made up, I have to wonder, why?

Okay so right now there's 4 votes for imgay and 4 for PMush.

I think the imgay reasoning Narc gives is probably pretty accurate.

AnonymousNarcotics posted:

Tbh after playing a few games with imgay I wouldn't mind him out regardless of his alignment because he doesn't play with town's best interests in mind. *This is my personal opinion based on experience please don't come at me for a bad argument. I don't care.*
How do you case someone that just poo poo posts, and even if they're town, how are they going to help?

That's basically the same reasoning Met gave to vote HiipFire. PMush got some crap for trying to vote Madman. I didn't agree with that vote either because first I didn't see it and second he's a new player! But I had more questions about this post from PMush:

Poison Mushroom posted:

On one hand, I don't like the way Met just jumps in and immediately pushes a policy lynch.

On the other hand, it is a weekend deadline, and those are notoriously lovely. I disagree with the who right now, but finding someone to start voting is probably a good idea.
Basically she disagreed with the vote, while acknowledging that we needed to find a target basically right away. That's trying to have it both ways, and while not exactly a direct contradiction, she ended up targeting a new player for being overly jokey. Is that really a better way to vote? I guess it could just be an attempt to create content rather than going for a policy vote but it seemed a bit odd.

Fast Luck

Actually I'm wondering, Narc could have meant something even more when she said he doesn't play with town's best interests in mind. Like does he just vote for whatever the hell instead of trying to help town? Like actively voting weird ways for laughs? I haven't read his games

Fast Luck

oh imgay is here. You can probably answer, I've never seen any of your games, does Narc mean you gently caress stuff up or is she just talking about your posting style?

I'd also ask people to look at Allen.
Allen was pretty out of it earlier, when he didn't understand PMom's post and PMom asked if he was even reading the thread. Besides that, there's not much to read. Not much content from Chic either.

Like I think Chic is happy to leave her vote where it is, but the way she made it as part of an explanation of how to vote, and said he "scum claimed," was just jokes.

I haven't really liked the reasoning of any of PMush's posting but I've so consistently been stumped by it (especially her interpretation of Chic's posting) that I now think she just sees things differently than I do. I'd rather vote for Allen right now.

Well that's no reason to think she's town that's true. But it does sort of change the read to me

Well I think Taste kind of likes no lynches on D1 (is that right Taste) but if we actually wanna kill someone we've got what, under four hours? Still plenty of time but people have to make sure to be around as we approach the deadline.

There are always more town than scum. Once there's an equal number it means the scum have won.

AnonymousNarcotics posted:

Daisy the premise of mafia is that town is the uninformed majority vs the scum who is the informed minority. Town can really only win by getting information that we don't currently have. We can get that information from other players dying and us learning their alignment.
I bet a small part of it is gleaning this kind of information and a big part of it is just random chance. Irl I feel like it'd be easier to read people than over text but in these games it's so hard.

Right now there's let's say 4 scum out of 16. So 25% to hit a scum.
-If we fail, 4 scum out of 14. So 28.6% chance to hit a scum.
-If we succeed, 3 scum out of 14. So 21.4% chance to hit a scum.
etc etc

The odds are against hitting in any one lynch, but we only have to hit 4 times over the course of the game to win.

Is Pmom doing graduate studies in math or something else. What's the chances of winning just by voting at random? Probably not too bad
