No, don't lie about our role just to get them lynched. We should absolutely wait for Time to chime in and let them do their thing for a while. With Blawl they now have a nice way of confirming each other. I don't like Flux' gambit, but I don't think we should actively sabotage it. There has to be more to this than we can see right now.
Meanwhile the pairs worrying me are: Hyper/Kitty Splint/cabot
This Splinter vote will haunt me. I should've waited a bit. My vote was premature and hasty, but I can't withdraw now, that would look even more suspicious I think. His post wasn't as odd as I thought, it's pretty much he knew everything I just wrote and worded it the way it is because of that.
People have to see this. I'm on their case early, few hours later retaliation. Coordinated spread of mistrust, testing the waters, guiding the flow to a possible late switch against us. Now cabot gives a bullshit reason for why he moved discussion to us and afterwards splinter says you are suspicious. They are good, no doubt. If there is no obvious choice, we will be attacked again by them and possibly CzarTim, who said "would vote" (lol), maybe scum try to corner us.
Well, it's still early and one often misinterprets things. BUT people have to see that scum is most eager to appear as constructive and helpful. It's not hard to do that, when (if) two town pairs create confusion with early claims. All they have to do is interrogating and "solving" the mystery... That's how Palmer did it in MGS, that's how crab did it in HP. It's all about mind games. I find it always scummy when people place their trust in sb. early on. But you did just the same with Kark, calling him pro-town. That reminds me, someone called Splintbot the same, I'll look who it was.
Edit: It was Kyanrute. Could be nothing, could be influencing opinions against Coppaflame and for Cabinter. To be honest I've mostly ignored Flame and Coppa until now, I'll go and take a closer look. -- Wait, what. Did you just openly say I'm in the No Lynch camp? That idea went out the window with the early claims, I never said a word about that ingame. I'll wait if somebody questions it.
Don't know what their problem is, but looks like we have a truce for today. It's still possible someone will push for us last minute.
The low posters are worrying. There will be scum, PR and ordinaries all among them... hopefully something will come up. At least getting rid of lowposters will reduce the amount of deadweight.
I don't mind you suggesting anything by the way. I'll gladly listen to your impressions. I feel your doubt about Tim btw. very inactive by his standards. And another shitty meta reason, but Blarg is usually a high poster and Kawl contributed more in HP as well. Hopefully this will turn the next days, otherwise they could be scum, even though I don't think that right now, given their claim and the way they claimed.
Love how Splinter jumped right at it again. They are mentally preparing everyone to get us out. Meanwhile Flux gets away with voting without reasoning and his bs claim. Time flakes out and is completely inactive.
I could throw my vote Flux as well, don't know if that would help currently.
Could you ask Rest if he is up to? link doesn't sound so good, and apart from that he hasn't done anything. His partner Karu is also slow, but at least seems to put some effort in the game. I don't like replacements at all, but if Rest already feels it's too much, maybe it's worth to consider it.
There are a lot of inactives in the game, hopefully the likes of UltraJay, Retroid, Magnum and so on step up and won't drop out as well.
Feels like everything is said and we hit stagnation. It's odd that everyone feels content with it, probably nobody wants to hit a beehive and get lynched today... Any idea how we could revive the thread? Thoughts on who you will finally vote? Flame/Coppa still seem like they could be goners and as Flux said I defended them, because I like both. Flame was cool in Harry Potter, took similar stances to mine and stood his ground, even with unpopular opinions. And Coppa is just very funny to play with. His MGS copycat claim was the best and I liked watching him in Volcano Island as scum. Totally wrong reasons to let them live, but I rather have much more fun with them in the game than compared to all the coasters and lurkers not doing anything... Today: I won't vote FluxTime, even though Times absense is noticeable and not good. I won't vote Blawl 'cause Blarg and Kawl. Also they will be discussed tomorrow. Karkador didn't catch my attention, he questioned people like I've seen him before, but he's experienced and could easily fake it as scum, otherwise you seem to have a good feeling with him. A place where my vote could land is Cabot and Splinter again, but that would be useless for today. Next up are the low posters and slackers... Let's see how El topo reacts, but it would be harsh to vote out Great Panda instantly.
I see I forgot about KittyHyper. Bandwaggon votes are uncool, don't know what to think of Hyper. He _always_ posts way more, no matter what role he has. Tim didn't do anything, but I can't deliver enough reasons to vote. SophiaTy haven't drawn any attention to them at all, alone for this fact I find them very suspicious.
Well... a bit more than a day, I'll probably set my vote in 24 hours. And then madness ensues and we'll all vote somebody totally different.
Ty4on likes to answer only certain question, the rest he simply ignores. He's coasting under Sophia's glimmer of innocence.
Also are they really thinking I as scum would defend another scum team openly on Day 1? Are they all nuts? ... And Coppa/Flame's silence is bad. If they don't contribute anything anymore today, they may be very well scum.
Hm, El Topo is right. This may be the biggest game yet, even though everyone has a secondary hidden chat. We have a huge pile of post revolving around nothing. As said earlier Splinter/Cabot the main force behind it and it doesn't feel constructive in the slightest.
I don't know and it still feels like we've accomplished nothing, I think scum likes the way the game is going.
I checked some old games... season 3 games ended day1 by 1100~1200 post, season 4 was mostly below 1000. And splinter and cabot are indeed consistent high end posters, hm. meta yay.
Ok. Let me explain my latest post, and sorry I don't respond to your posts here point by poin, it's difficult to do on mobile.
I think Flux has put a target on his chest because he's bulletproof. He was hoping that there was enough doubt about his claim to not be lynched and that the mafia would target him because he's a legitimate threat. It's a good plan, but I'm not sure if there is enough doubt for him to survive. I'm going to take my attention off him and see how far we get
You don't need to answer everything point by point, I just want to get my thoughts out here. Add comments were you see them fitting. Okay, so you're definitely not voting Flux, but why the first vote on Sophia? Get some reactions?
Flux questions Flame again for something which is totally understandable if you played HP with him. We had a discussion in HP, I opened the game with No Lynch vote and several others joined, but the idea was dropped because we had two claims. Retroid for example was also in favour of No Lynch, which is why I suspect Flame wanted to reassure everyone right from the beginning that we were lynching.
I won't hop in again and defend him, maybe he is scum and that would make us look bad? ugh
TL21xx not voting, because he wants it to cool down, at the same time he doesn't want last minute shenanigans. LOL
Splinter getting aggressive now? Fishing for reactions? I'm so hard sold on them being scum, I simply lack the possibilities to prove it/outplay them. It feels like crab in HP... scum, but nobody believes it/everyone thinks he is town. Even though I'd like to outright offend them and offer my self as a lynch victim just to prove my point. Self-voting splinter style would be a good way to leave the game now. //Won't happen.
