My main concern is that I'm not quite sure how night time works.

It looks like some turn based stuff but is there also hypothetically investigative roles on top of that?

Like Bifauxnen assembles a front and back line that fights the other thread but there is also a scum team within that assembly and on top of that cops investigating our own lines at night?

Am I on the right track here?

I ain't too familiar with these big battles, but it's lookin' like Nat 20, inf, and tpink here want off the battlefield. Now, I'm not sayin' that's somethin' to be worried about immediately, I'm sure they got a useful trick or two up their sleeves, but it does make me wonder somethin' fierce what it might be.

I see busb agrees with my sentiment, but I'm not sure how I feel about that fact or them at the mo'

But the objective is to kill the other leader, not necessarily wipe the scum in this thread out or from experience in prior games like this can the leader only be feasibly killed after killing a threads scum team?

This is my first Shine. There's more to it than simply basing soldiers together, right?

What should I focus on here. Am I hunting scum or requesting night phase positions that will kill the leader faster? Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I need the images in my head.

Anidav these sound more like questions about how to play scum/scum objectives than focusing on your role on the battlefield.

Leave big picture to Mother Bif, you focus on not sucking.

No comment on RF. They were absent on the tail end of a game that just finished. So simply yet to show up I think.

Australia is probably gonna go quiet due to Nye celebrations too.

Never played with 4 5 9 11 12 13 14 before unless they are name changing weirdos so I'm suspicious of strangers. Gaspy is the usual scum hunting best served cold. Which is fine for now.

Gaspy's not wrong, you are overthinking this.

Victory is when the other teams king is dead, but they can't be night killed - only killed on the battlefield. This makes finding scum and not fielding them in combat imperative.

Scum hunt during day phase, use your abilities during battle phase to harm the enemy. When the enemy king runs low on players they will need to either field scum by necessity, or field themselves.

It's a bog standard game with a bit of cross thread poo poo talking thrown in.

That's literally all there is to it.
