After D1, knew Hal was scum, copped him to sanity check it and was right. After I saw myself and Max dead N1, I also knew TMM was scum.

I'm glad you guys finally got there, but was a bit frustrating to watch.

Special thanks to dbd for realizing Hal was scum, wish you had pushed harder. Sadly when scum killed you, again no one thought about why scum would want you dead.

Ecco please for the love of gently caress before you leave WHY WAS THEIR A CULT COP BUT NO CULT?!?!?!?!

Also on a scale of 1 - 10 how believable was my story about the ruby (initially?)

(Wilma Rudolph)



Good game, town. Don't regret stirring up an exceptionally uneventful D1 even though it led to my own demise.

Reading along, thought DBD had an exceptional game- had most of the scum pegged in some form or fashion and wouldn't let us off the hook easily. Nice work.

Also thought Hal did a great job prolonging our chances in a pretty bad situation overall from D2 onward.

Would be interested to hear people's thoughts on the balance of this one now that all roles are revealed. I know we felt a little under-powered but I'm not sure how much of that was balance vs. losing power roles early. That said, had we sent TMM on the sub, I think it would have felt even worse.

Thanks for hosting, Ecco! Have a great trip! (Also, the flavor for the N1 TMM kill was fantastic and had me laughing for quite a while!)

Ecco, I was probably too rough in my criticism in the scum chat, so I'm sorry for it. Thanks for the game.

I ultimately just wasn't happy to be scum again (I can't seem to go more than 2 games without being scum and it drives me nuts) and then the sub thing threw me for a loop and I felt like it just restricted what I wanted to do in this game.

I did have fun claiming CPR doctor and buying a day though, so that was at least something.

I'm sorry I had to kill you first Max, I'm sure you'll pay me back. I burned myself trying to force a D1 mislynch and knew you would push it, so you had to go. KB, you were entirely Sal's decision.

And then of course I had to go visit my friend MMT as soon as she got back. I was just trying to save her!

[8:42 PM] rebecco: I saw, it was successful, you're both scum now
[8:43 PM] Hal Incandenza:

[8:56 PM] Gage26: Woooo. Ok Hal you have to fill me in

[9:05 PM] Hal Incandenza: are you ready to learn that purpose?
[9:05 PM] Gage26: Yes

The sub was cool and good because it made the game easier from a town perspective (mini instead of big game) so itís funny that it feels like the scum team weíre the only ones to take it seriously and try to discuss it.

Thanks, Ecco!

I really liked the game conceptually! The sub mini adventure was fun (although I imagine it probably sucked for b-, I'd hate to be the only scum in a real-time mafia game). Could scum have just won the game on d1 if they put four people on the sub?

Props to the scum team for killing me because I was probably going to go hard after Sal / TMM when I got back

Yeah the NKís were good at shutting down arguments that were 100% coming. KB has a scum result on Hal and yes, I was absolutely going to push for TMM until my face was blue.

Really liked sub game and I think most of us on the sub thought sal was scum on our way back in. (Omg, MMT I accidentally wrote ďthought you were scumĒ at first - my dna is hard coded against you )

I canít believe everyone just went with Salís explanation after he got tracked to my kill!!!!! His explanations were contradictory and didnít make sense.

The emerald is one of my favorite ecco game things that appears from time to time because everyone always wants it but it is always a bad idea to grab it.

Thanks for the game Ecco!

Good game everybody!

I agree with DBD on Sal being loving hard to read. If he hadn't slipped up with the ruby lie I would have had an hard time voting for him. Also it was unlucky for the scum team that Flerp was the one getting the trident, since he was basically confirmed town having survived the sub. If I had been in his place I'd have been lunched instantly.

Hal Incandenza
Feb 12, 2004



Good job town, you deserved the win. I definitely did not play my best and DBD was totally right, I should have pushed IS and TMM harder but I didn't have it in me to bus hard this game and that made it too tough in the end. Obviously having TWO scum seen doing kills sure didn't help.

Hilarious that DB was like I GOT THIS EVIL THING but then he still used it and then birdstrike was like "guess I will use it too!"

Yeah the emerald is always fun to watch happen in ecco games. Best move is grab it and not use it, since, you know, it kills you.

Shout out to the sub team this was probably some of the most fun I've had and I honestly just sat there in suspense watching the fix the reactor mini game

I wish I could have made it back but that's what I get for being agreeable and going along with the gridlocked lynch instead of bminus WHOM I PEGGED FROM THE OUTSET.
