I have played in games where people have scum claimed and then been like "WHY SO SERIOUS JOKE PHASE!" and then it turns out they are really scum. But yeah I also hate when people make obvious joke posts and then those get blown out of proportion.

Moritz could easily be scum with Amalgam. Flam was an easy push to avoid lynching Amalgam because I had left my vote on him when I went to bed. I don't think it's unreasonable to assume a 3-man scum team in an 11-player game where everyone has a brutal and there's no NK; otherwise the scum only gets one controlled kill. So Sober/Moritz/Amalgam is not an unlikely combination.

If it's not them, though, then the only living person with more than one vote from an unflipped player is Amalgam. If the scum didn't concentrate at all, it suggests they didn't care which of the three lynch leaders died and by extension that would imply Amalgam is Town. Or they did concentrate, which would mean Squiggly and Hal are both scum and again Amalgam is Town.

Summary: I'm not voting Amalgam today as I think he can only be scum with Moritz.

Look at this piece of poo poo "hypothetical game theory" post. A whole lotta words to say absolutely nothing substantial

So I legit hate this post. You are coming out super hard on this and your whole case is "LOL". There is no effort to pick apart the post, it's just a blanket "This post sucks."

There is nothing to dissect. The whole post is hot garbage nonsense

Not a case either, no vote. Interesting that I'm coming out "super hard against it" when you yourself frame my post as a big "lol." Almost like I'm not coming out against it super hard?

Fake edit: although continuing by calling you an illiterate gently caress is a bit much

I was kinda hoping for a more emotional response once he seemed sensitive to the language to be honest

I think it's interesting he'd rather discuss my tone than my content and I don't like the hypocrisy inherent in his post but I'm not sold on it being scummy

outside of that first vote on me, I think the rest of their play is not good with the buckshot aggression coming across as suspicious.

You can hate me for being an rear end in a top hat but this is a bad bandwagon vote

Suspicious because...?

...because two other people discussed my actions and you want to get in ground floor if they vote me?

It seems like you plugged in some key words that make sense in the context of everyone's posts but not really solely on their own

Jedit posted:

From the receiving end point of view: Squiggly dismissed my arguments without addressing them. That's bad in any event. But also, for the last couple of years I've done most of my Mafia playing on BGG where plurality lynch is the norm. I've learned how much more important it is to track the votes in games where you can easily be lynched with only three people on you.

He also started in on how I didn't vote for Moritz. While I think that Amalgam can't be scum unless Moritz is, it doesn't follow that Amalgam is scum if Moritz is. There's nothing to gain from lynching Moritz without an additional reason to suspect him, and I don't have that yet.

It's like you missed the whole point of my post

If A than B, if B than C is a wishy washy junk argument that means absolutely nothing because no one but scum know if A is town or scum

It looks like content but isn't really because there is nothing behind it and there is still no vote laid down by you. Just "I don't think this person is scum because of this unlikely chain of events"

It's bad logic however you look at it

Tired Moritz posted:

honestly I dont like that argument because it sets up both AA and me as scum on flips. I mean, I won't lie and I was kinda thinking of voting AA but then I got to thinking, why?

if AA flips town then people are gonna be suspicious on me based on messy logic and I'm not a fan of that.

You're making connections I did not explicitly state and faulty ones at that

Your second assertion is a little bit more on the mark. I find your transitive property post as one of those scummy non helpful but look I'm posting posts.

It's scummy on its own, not in relation to AA

It seems like you are not a fan of me because however AA flips, your post is a bad post. Hence why I called it out in the first place as A Bad Post

Jedit posted:

You can call it OMGUS if you want, but take a look at how he's responding to confrontation. He's made no attempt to address the question of where I should think the scum are, if not between Squiggly/Hal and Sober/Moritz.

A.) You never posed a question

B ) You made a game theory post about how many scum there might be

C.) You made a long winded hypothetical post tying a bunch of people together

D.) Your big conclusion was "this person is probably town UNLESS this person is scum" still tying people together for chain lynches

E.) You vote nobody

F.) You invent some bullshit about how I should tell you where to look for scum instead of scum hunting yourself and act like that's a plausible reason to vote for someone

I didn't think I needed to spell it out to that degree because I assumed the rest of you were semi competent and could see why that post was A Bad Post™ but hey my bad I guess

Pretty sure now is when I convince myself I'm right. I'd vote jedit but I still think AA is scum too

I know you didn’t like his immediate response last game day to me questioning where he was, but I’m not clear on the rest of your argument against him. Can you re-state?

I think I tried to question him a page or two ago about why being aggressive was suspicious and what about that was scummy in relation to his vote on me and he straight up ignored that request to post baloney instead

I am still wary of how he called me town in one post and then after people posted suspicions of me being aggressive being suspicious proceeds to copy that language and vote me when it seems like a bandwagon might form in almost his next post

Jedit posted:

I'll explain that. Based on D1 voting I think that Squig/Hal and TM/Amalgam form a dichotomy. As matters stand, if nobody but TM votes then TM is doomed unless Hal switches. Assuming Hal will not switch, then TM has the choice of going down alone or taking either Squig or Amalgam with him. Who he picks, and who he then shoots, will give us a lot of information about who he wants to be alive.

Stop this it's so loving scummy

Not because it's me but because you hypothetically pair people up with no flip proof

Only scum have proof of alignment and it looks like you're potentially tying opposite alignments together for chain lynches. If you post this poo poo after a flip that's fine but you're speculating on 4 people's status at the same time in a hypothetical with supposedly no proof of alignment

Looks like TM is likely to be dead regardless unless someone switches or we get 3+ votes on someone else.
