Why either of those opinions, really.

Assuming they're both real reads.

I disagree with the MMT read outright, I just wanted to know how he could have even found something on KB, but that doesn't matter because:

TMMadman posted:

When I'm in a game with KB and MMT, we are rarely all the same alignment. It surprisingly happened in the Shive V soldiers game, so I'm fully expecting one of them to be scum in this game.

This is bad.

I have important thoughts about sussing things out, but don't feel like sharing them.

I think bk comes out better from that argument, only because I found my initial TMM post paper thin in terms of content. I like Asiina going with it and putting her money where her mouth is, I like people going "wow hmm Asiina may be on to something here" far less since they all hold back their votes. That was mostly Hal & Bif from memory, so reading along, I agreed with BK's initial call out.

Anyway, this post caught my eye because I cannot figure out why they would bring up hypothetically be cased instead unless they had a guilty mindset, and would like IcePheonix to expand on this.

IcePhoenix posted:

Bif the only way I could have justified that vote any less would be to just vote without giving any reasoning and then you'd be casing me for that instead

That was far too subtle sarcasm on my part. I have nothing else to add to that discussion. Sussing out = trying to figure it out. Now this is awkward.

Bifauxnen posted:

sometimes I think Mafia isn't really about casing, it's about letting out all your aggression into punishing people for not interpreting reality the way you do

I find its more trying to understand the reality someone is claiming they live in, and if it's genuine or if they're lying their butts off.

Anyways, I'm just sick of people deciding my votes ping them on day one. It's always "IcePhoenix seems like they're overjustifying maybe scum??? :thunk:" and then I just vote with a short justification and it's "IcePhoenix is clearly trying to start a bandwagon, scum???? :thunk" and then if I'm out of thread and see a case that's good and agree with it and vote on it it's "Oh is IcePhoenix bussing? SCUM????????!??!!??!?!?!?! :thunk::thunk::thunk:" and I just don't know what you assholes want from me anymore, and it's really annoying because I would just like to play the whole mafia game instead of constantly defending myself on day one which inevitably carries over to the next days because now I'm a target.

I don't think I put much pressure on you, and I don't like this reaction to my comment.

Max

The point of this is that you weren't even a topic of conversation until you made an argument with two people about yourself. Now when I've pointed it out, and Asiina made a +1, this has suddenly turned into a lot of aggro then I think is warranted?

I don't like that bif has hedged so much, but the rest of it is a lot of arguing back and forth that will be more relevant after we see a flip or two, IMO.

Despite that, I still feel that TMM is the better vote.

Could you expand on why you think TMM is a better vote?

Is there an almanac of player game history/posting habits somewhere, because I just realized that people could probably say anything they like on that front and those without the same length of experience would believe them unless it's called out by other old timers.

I don't like relying too much on meta when making calls. It's OK for like, day 1, but past that you can start putting meta by the wayside. It's possible for people to actively change things up and it does also exclude people who aren't really aware of it.

I was mostly pinged by his multiple town calls he made in a row without much effort to look for suspicion elsewhere. I know he's going for a new meta but he's usually still kind of spiky.

Alrighty then let's break this down!

D1 had a couple of phases it went through, obvious jokephase:



These read a lot like Max missing jokes, and idle off-the-cuff observations, and reading a looooooooooot into them. But he never voted TMM so :shrug:

I can see where IP put his vote on TMM but I don't see the case. The twenty-emote meltdown does come off as frustrated town, but I'm not willing to give him credit, since all he did is hitch his wagon to Max/Asiina's admittedly poor case. (Max never voted TMM!)


This is good, subtle prodding of someone to make them firm their stance. That's pretty townie in my opinion.


The 'chain lynch' is a wild misinterpretation of what bif has said. (incidentally, I've always read 'sussing out' as 'coming to a conclusion due to a collection of facts and gut reads')


This is a worthwhile observation, though.


Okay this is fair but it's pretty OMGUSsy


This is how I read bif's original post, incidentally.

Then there's a lot of posting about posting.

I just don't understand why BK decided to double down on misinterpreting things Bif said, when bif was extremely clear.

Basically my two major reads are BK as Pretty Scum For Day One and, to a significantly lesser degree, Max for his complete robot-ing and missing jokes and off-the-cuff observations from TMM.

##vote BK

Not a fan of these reads. Can you find a quote from BK that makes you think he doubled down on misrepresentation when you pretty much agree with 2/3's of the posts you quoted from him? From the way you wrote that I would think you'd land at "I think bif is scum"

Max

Asiina posted:

I don't really get that multi-quote post Solus just did, because it seems like you're leaning for BK as town, but then declare Bif town and vote for him.
