I don't think I had a huge influence on the game--for me that's something like Merk singlehanded lye shifting the vote off Punt and onto Meinberg. I just kind of hid and let people like Sinistral do their thing.

Whether you had a huge influence on the game or not, the fact that you managed to stay alive for 5 days with effectively zero suspicion, while posting regularly is an impressive scum game. By the nature of scum your goal is to stay alive, and in that sense you did an exceptional job.

Even the last day when it was just you and KoB left, I still was strongly considering that maybe it was KoB because I thought it was so unlikely you were scum. Until you posted your great flavor post, at least.

I think I'm going to ##Vote Jose as well actually. Not because he voted merk, but because of his insistence and bad case on imgay. It's fun to make 'policy lynch imgay' posts in joke vote but once you're holding onto it until literally the last 5 minutes of day 1 its a bad easy case.

Quandary
Jan 29, 2008


I know you weren't joking, that's the bad part. Genuinely pursuing an imgay policy lynch when imgay is one of the more prolific posters at this point (somehow) is scummy, and an actively bad lynch.

"Bad" vote or not, I said I was going to do it before roles went out, I changed my vote to avoid no kill, and I'm not currently voting him.

Regardless of what you said before role pm's came out, it doesn't change that a role effects how you play after the role pm.

Do you still think we should lynch imgay?

Who do you think is scummy?

Jan 29, 2008


Even if Imgay was shitposting, I still think it's a bad call to policy lynch him. Given that he's contributing, it's even worse of a plan.

Jose Valasquez posted:

I would still like to kill imgay on principle. If I was scum he'd be dead.

This is an absolutely terrible point and you know that. Are you actually going to try to make this claim as a certainty?

quote:

I think Max is scummy based on his terrible claim that I'm scum and swooped in at 3 minutes to the deadline to kill merk instead of letting us no kill

Agreed here Max's case is pretty poor. Lynching merk over no-lynching is not a bad thing to do.

Jose Valasquez posted:

As to this point, I 100% disagree. He coasted by doing jack poo poo in Soldiers for most of the game and nobody wanted to kill him because he was just a poo poo poster. If he'd been scum he would have coasted to victory because nobody wants to kill a poo poo poster who isn't participating. The only reason I'm not pushing harder for him to be the d2 kill is because while I think the comments about his effort are giving him way too much credit at least he's not pure poo poo posting and is actually commenting on the game.

I love how your case against him is "he's not going to do anything but poo poo post" but you don't want to vote him because "he's not poo poo posting." Do you not see how that's ridiculous?

To clarify on this post because I missed a sentence. It's bad that you make the case on imgay then when you're called on it you back off a bit by admitting your case is actually non-existent, but you're still continuing to push it regardless.

I've changed my opinion on ecco, I think she's a misguided townie because I don't think she'd double down this hard on policy lynches as scum. ##unvote

Also, ecco, I'm anti policy lynches always and have been in literally every game irrespective of alignment. Even in soldiers I was anti imgay policy lynch, even before I had a result.

Back ##Vote Jose

I woke up this morning and read the thread and knew I was voting based primarily on a scummy read on a policy lyncher, and reading through I got confused because Ecco was also advocating policy lynching, though reading I didn't think the way Ecco was advocating it was scummy. It makes way more sense why my gut says that because I never actually had a scum read on Ecco at all, it was on Jose. I'm happy with my vote still on Jose on re-read because he's advocating the imgay lynch until called out on it, at which point he backs off but continues to wafflely push it.

Re-reading MG2 I think it's a pretty good vote and I'd be ok with. It feels like MG is here but failing to contribute, intentionally avoiding giving any real opinions. I'm not going to vote him because that would be hammer and I don't know its necessary to hammer this early. I still think Jose is a better lynch, but I'm not sure what I can do to convince people of that.

SirSamVimes posted:

I really thought Jose was scum and I figured it would be better to do a vig today when if it failed it wouldn't lose us the game.

Look at how SSV claims the vig. It's immediately defensive, because he knew he would get counterclaimed. A town vig claim doesn't start on the defensive, because a town player knows that it will confirm him as town.

Quandary
Jan 29, 2008


While SSV has expressed a tiny bit of suspicion on Jose, it's nothing in comparison to how muchI have. If I'm the scum, it's basically saying that I got ultra lucky and the guy who I've been railing against all game happened to be the vig kill. Alternately, I'm town and vigged the guy who I've been calling scum all game.

Re read SSV's vig claim post. He knew he was going to be counter claimed and immediately went on the defensive, explaining why he would have vigged Jose before anyone evn asked the question.

Town wouldn't do that. Town would claim the vig and expect to not be counter claimed, and as such wouldnt defend themselves immediately.

##vote SSV still has to be scum.

While I'm hesitant to trust the cop results as well, given we have both a godfather and a framer, I do think Max is probably scum from the way he's pushing so hard in favor of SSV over me. It feels a lot like in Soldiers when we were trying to lynch QPQ in lylo and his entire team was fighting tooth and nail against it. If you look back at yesterday, the only people who very strongly opinionated about me vs SSV, aside from us two ourselves, were Max and chaoslord. It makes sense for chaoslord as he has a role related reason to believe me, but Max very strongly pushes against me and makes a very questionable case. I find it really hard to believe that a town Max would have pushed so hard without any sense of questioning, which leaves me to believe he's pushing to save his scum buddy SSV.
