Oh, I just got a lot of flack for your abnormal win con. I had expected you to be at a (possibly severe) disadvantage and tried to help you by providing the override and (basically) a secret additional vote through your win con. I had feared for a blowout of scum, e.g. if one of you gets infected N1. I assumed that town would have to plan with (possibly) 5 scum anyway, so it would not make much difference. That said, it was not standard and I got (rightfully so) criticized for it.

Sorry. I'll try to be a bit more specific.
Normally, scum wins if it outnumbers all other factions together. Your win condition however ignored the neutral, partially to give you an edge, but also because I thought it would make things more interesting, without skewing the balance. It was also supposed to be a subtle clue towards the possible existence of a neutral and for you to not actively pursue the neutral player. However, abnormal mechanics or win conditions are usually not expected during the main season, so I rightfully got criticized for the win condition.
When I posted here, I feared that you would reach a point where this abnormal win condition would matter, e.g. by using your override ability. This could have led to (again, rightful) criticism of my game design and possibly an odd 4-1-4 situation. Thankfully this did not happen.

It was deliberately ambiguous, but *if* there was a neutral (or another faction for that matter), I didn't want you breathing down their neck. There could have been, for example, Sabbat as another faction.
