it says they don't have oot comms, but they are aware of who the other infected are. so the argument is then would they have much incentive to try protect or cover for their infected friends?

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?

Yeah I was thinking the same.

Thinking out loud here:

If there's motivation for the infected to not get night killed, so they can stay in the game, then maybe they might be willing to bus their fellow things.

However, because people are suggesting we keep moving onto testing new people as opposed to repeating, that means their turn may come up sooner than later regardless of how they play, so what's the point in them doing that?

So there's no coordination, no strategy, but awareness.

Would they bus their bud or hard ignore them (safety in numbers) etc etc


Whatever they do because everything is wifom at the moment, I can't see how we would pick up on 'scummy behaviours'.

Okay I don't know enough of the meta of rf and past games, is there any super obvious candidate for the n0 monster who would recruit retro futurist?

Doesn't matter if it was a night 1 recruit either, really.

Asiina Keane and clord would be my meta picks from this roster.

Asii and RF bleed the same maple blood afaik and Keane and clord have good history with rf maybe a few others but those are my picks for lovely meta cases.

Asiina asked earlier who our top 1 picks would be. I could be wrong but that seems like a great uninfected content creator to later capitalise on when one of those who answered flips infected.

redneck nazgul posted:

note that i say "other(s)" because i'm a bit fuzzy on the wording of the game mechanics

i.e, did we start with one person as the thing and they chose someone to make two vs we started with one actual infected person, offed one last night, and still have one remaining because the infection went before the nightkill

From the way I read it there were two infected during day 1 (n0 recruit) and last night there would have been three. So we are back at two today. The original monster and either the first or second infected.

I thought the monster is the only one that infects, but the OP says creatures..

redneck nazgul posted:

i mean, if i get tested, it means i'm cleared for that night's kill and that's it

it's not a good thing one way or another because it's not going to turn up scum today so it's a waste

i'm just laughing at using two, possibly three jokeposts as a rationale for using our one guess

Again, anything is better than nothing. I don't think we're gonna get the usual scum inconsistencies and lack of casing as strong tells, but I could be wrong. There's also little risk in losing people, it's just wifom if they'll infect previously cleared players or not, but again we have to test someone anyway..

I'm trying different things and seeing what gets traction. My other idea was who would recruit RF first, if we know enough meta about them, and work back from there. AA mentioned a couple, but that's it.

I think we test someone else because AA is not the monster because he got given a weapon.

hambeet
Sep 13, 2002



Nor was he infected at the beginning the night.

hambeet
Sep 13, 2002



Actually how sure we get there still is a monster in play?

The op just says there's an n0 creature that infects a player. Flavour speaking the dog was the creature and the dog has been killed.

So is there a player that is the creature? or was it just a flavour mechanic thing created by cpig?

i don't think i follow you here beet
Ignoring the concept of the original monster for a second, We know for certain he wasn't infected at the beginning of the night. Because only the uninfected get a weapon.

So what odds are better?

The likelihood that aa got the gun and was also chosen to be infected on the same night?

Or the odds of testing another previously untested player who also may have been infected last night or on a previous night?


I'm not at my computer so I can't break the numbers down easily, but I would feel that the latter would have a greater probability of finding infected because they may have been infected on a previous night, where we know AA definitely was not.
