This is a pretty chill game (because of all the snow).

Is it safe to toast marshmallows over a burning monster corpse? ##vote toalpaz

Tho gently caress if I can figure out a good testing strategy. Should we re-test DB? How likely is it the monsters would try to recruit a cleared dude?

I was thinking just that actually, it would be interesting to go throughout the whole game testing one person, we also don' t know the priority of the recruit/kill too right?

So who knows if we killed a fresh and innocent acting RF or scum RF.

It only matters to me cause I'd like to develop opinions on people's play styles but cults make it hard.

Getting cleared early is a sure fire way to survive the game, cult or no cult. People would always find it difficult to waste a shot clearing someone again later because people think they flipped later on/or vigging someone who was cleared early over someone who's playing scummy.

pretty sure you're contradicting yourself here, chief

The fact that there are multiple motivations for any statement makes it wifom.

I could have said that to stop the vote on me as scum or I could have said that as town hedging to be culted later earnestly or I could have said that as town making an observation about the kinds of plays available.

As town as a whole I don't think that there are good strategies beyond testing scummy people I suppose.

The motivation of not being tested as town is that hitting a thing creature = a sure kill at night, getting tested and being proven town yourself just equals increasing the odds slightly of hitting scum that night.

The motivation of not being tested as scum = if you are, town would surely kill you.

However, if people play poorly on purpose in hopes of getting tested and being cleared and getting culted later. Well. It makes it hard to town to win, and it's clearly a personal motivation.

We already threw away our chance of having the perfect game. So lol, I'm just having fun. Because alignments change, personal goals can supersede correct 'town' strategy, further mucking up any ability to determine motivation. Thats what I'm thinking.

Basically if you're town, and trying to play town all the way through, try not to waste your votes.

Jumping on someone before everyone has had the chance to act scummy or not is more than likely scum or people who plan on throwing's motivation.

Mar 20, 2012

nah that's true hambeet and a good thought. The people who haven't recieved a gun/been tested recently have more opportunities to have been infected. Each night they have a chance to become infected increases their chances compared to people who've been tested more recently. because there's an original scum and maybe a N1 scum, we should probably just test people who haven't been tested or received a gun.

Even though we might miss a new one we're more likely to hit old ones over time right?

The best thing for town to do is still to test people who haven't gotten kills/been tested. With that in mind.

##vote Keane

I know that I'm town but I think me, Keane, DB. Right? Because we have had the most opportunities to be infected and are statistically more likely to be the thinglings.

You'd technically be a good test too but I don't mind me or Keane.

I'd prefer we stick to people with the most chances of becoming scum. It's what makes sense. If I'm cleared hopefully the vig can take out one of the other people. So it's all cool.
