Look it's easy-- ##vote Anon

yuming posted:

The top two reasons she gives are the same reasons I was initially suspicious of Ecco.

She voted Goo based on Keane's case, and now is back on Opop.

Overall the impression I have of her posting:
- Throwing her vote around. She's in the challenge and complains about how it was modded. // Ecco is around but not advancing scum hunting.
- The votes she has made are easy. Omega specifically looks like an easy scum target to me: add pressure to a hated player and they could end up the only option if not enough people are around at deadline.
- ~bad feelings~

Would also vote here, obviously.

YOU HAVE A DRAFT OF A CASE ON ECCO BUT CANT MAKE IT BECAUSE OF TIME? COME ON BROTHER. THE CASE YOU END UP MAKING COULD HAVE BEEN DONE IN TWO MINUTES

THIS IS A HEEL TRYING TO GET THE FANS TO TURN ON A WRESTLER ONLY TO COME IN AND PILE ON IF THE PILING ON IS PILING ON-ABLE, BROTHER. MEAN GENE.

OmegaGoo posted:

Roy isn't the only one who got an item. Everyone who had a key at the end, including TMM, got an item. Keep that in mind.

So for the yuming bandwagon:

Merk had his case.

The next three votes were "I agree with this case, and will vote yuming."

The next three were "Well, it's either yuming or narc, and I think yuming is scummier."

QPQ trusted merk's gut.

Narc and Garth hammered.

Merk seemed to be the only one to actually put any thought into that case. I thought it was a pretty weak case.

MMT was not on the bandwagon, but had she been here around the deadline, I believe she would have voted for yuming, so consider her on the bandwagon.


Based on what we see here, I find QPQ's vote the scummiest, although I am not fond of opop's vote either.

This post. If you thought it was a weak case where were you yesterday trying to get us to lynch someone else? What does the weak case say about alignment? How can you say QPQ made the scummiest vote and then not vote him?

This dude isn't scum hunting.

I think it is incredibly more scummy to play hindsight cop on the d1 lynch when you were here to actually persuade people to vote who you want to vote than anything Narc has done. I was really only voting Narc because I thought the post-me-going-to-bed stuff looked scummy, but I think what you, PinMom, and OmegaGoo are doing now is above that.

It's nonsense because yeah, we're all looking back in hindsight, but your case was bad because you leaned on gut and yuming was town. If yuming was scum, well then it'd have been a good case, but she wasn't.

Anon calling you town despite your one notable case being off base is bananas.

You called the case really bad. If it was really bad, where were you to point out its flaws? Why did that case win the day over Narc? If it was really bad why aren't you analyzing the players that supported it?

I will add that Narc's posts have a constructed tone to them. The two yuming empty quoted at end of day yesterday jump out, for example, and the most recent set of posts do the same. A Narc post doesn't fit the flow of the thread... I have to stop and read them slower, if that makes any sense.

I don't agree that a public inventor is a townie role and am a bit concerned that someone with as much creativity in setup design as Ecco is relying upon that assumption. A public scum inventor has the same exact concerns as private scum inventor: items that don't do what they say they do, items that have negative effects, etc. I don't see why Anarc's claim has anything to do with Anarc's alignment.

EccoRaven posted:

I mean if like tomorrow Keane posts "oh yeah the shield tried to eat me" or something Anon is an obvious vote, but as long as it's explicitly a "pro-town" item then it's really, really weird that it'd be public and also scum. proving its power means hurting the scumteam, and I try to avoid designing setups where scum have to hurt their own team by using their role. the biggest exception to that was Somber's daykill power in Arrentia but that's the only exception, and it was an extreme one.

Option 1:
Item says it will protect Keane from a night kill.
Item does not protect Keane from a night kill.

Option 2:
Item says that it will Roleblock someone.
Item only Roleblocks town, unsuccessful on scum.

Option 3:
Item says that you don't know what it will do.
Item tells your role to scum.

That took ten seconds of thinking. What the hell, Ecco?

I'll back off of my argument because Keane said that the item doesn't make any sense as scum. Ecco, your analysis of this is really suspect though. We wouldn't know whether the item didn't do what Keane thought it did unless Keane told us what it said it would do and somehow we found out it didn't do that thing. That's the point I'm making. Your assumption that we would immediately lynch Narc if Keane died requires that we know what Keane was told the item would do X, he used it at night, and it failed to do X. We wouldn't have that information. If we did, the scum could play around it anyhow.
