I don't think imgay is a good vote at all. Someone acting more serious than usual isn't really a slam dunk scum catch

MMM Whatchya Say posted:

I have three comments about imgay that aren't related to him being serious. I will even put them in list format for you to read them easily.

  • He's talked about trying to drum up interaction and activity but I think he's puffing himself up there
  • His posts about what scum would do don't make sense together
  • He put himself on his silly list

I think imgay is spending more energy trying to give us an impression of him rather than actual scum looking.

That said, I actually disagree with Kash about the seriousness thing. It doesn't seem like he's being too serious, especially at the time Kash was making a deal out of it. I think imgay is suspicious, but I have this nagging feeling that Kash might be targetting imgay.

Opopanax posted:

I'm thinking Trip. I don't like the case on imgay and I think he's pushing a bad one. ##vote mmm


Like here is the entire progress on his vote. His first point is about something Kashuno said, then he votes me because he doesn't like the case. Opop I think you owe me at least some kind of explanation on why my case is bad rather than just a vote.

Hal's vote is explained better but there's not much I can say about a meta read.

I dunno I feel good it is either you or MMM. You are doing a good job of appearing all serious and engaged but for the most part you say nothing and just sort of had the momentum fall off you.

MMM is different, he's constructing elaborate thoughts but they don't seem to go anywhere and he seems like he's hanging back and waiting for... something.

I have acted though. There's not much I can accomplish by filling this thread with a bunch of my own posts if nobody is responding to them.

I'll be more specific here. I don't feel comfortable voting when Opop is completely unknown to me and barely understand the other players any better. Can I extrapolate reads based on what's in the thread right now? Yes, but I don't want to and more importantly, I don't think I have to. It's easier for me to make reads if I can feel people out by interacting with them. When we've got a thread of sporadic posting, most of it not even being responses to earlier posts, it becomes loosey goosey. I understand this is a typical D1 problem, but the nature of this game means we can't really afford a loosey goosey D1, because voting for the wrong person ends the game.

I suppose that, yeah, if nothing continues to happen I might as well just start laying hot reads but there's plenty of time until the deadline.

Sure. Since you're here and willing to post, I'll jam with you imgay.

I think 're acting weird this game and I've talked about it in a few posts. Do you have a response to any of those?

Jump King
Aug 10, 2011



Another question, one that seems sort of integral to the discussion this game. Are you putting even a little bit of seriousness in this game?

Like I know that you're not that serious about mafia in general, I'm just wondering if you're just uninvested or actively loving around.

I was thinking that Kash's motivation for switching could be a scum attempt to get another vote rolling after the momentum on imgay died but I'm at -1 and he could have voted me without much responsibility so I don't think that really makes sense

I think the opposite in that I think this is the game d1 is most important. With so few players you don't have much wiggle room and the first vote can decide the game.

I don't really agree with this line of thinking. Scum, by hammering you early, draw large amounts of suspicion to themselves and make it difficult d2.

This would make scum Opop or Hal. Tough choice between the two. I think hal's been doing fine so far and doesn't seem obviously scummy. That doesn't rule him out though, he's a sneak and has had a strong hand in the narrative.

Meanwhile Opop has done nothing much and sort of appears scummy by default. I start feeling like surely if opop were scum he wouldn't be so lazy. But he could be.

Picking between the two I'd go for Opop, with the bonus that if Hal is scum his target clearly wouldn't be opop. Gotta think about this though.
