Went back and read a game; a completely unrelated game.
That game was kinda weird. At first town didn't do too well, but then one townie got replaced and the replacement was able to pretty much single-handedly find every scum player and win the game for town. Three scum, the last three lynches were scum and the last two were turbos.
Anyhow, one read there stuck really out to me:
Finished reading Page 6- Was so fun, only town people were posting and I had the feeling I'm hearing town posts Well until post 300 That wolf pop'd in
Because it was totally correct - all 49 posts were made by townies - and a way of reading the thread I had never seen before.
Looking back - it is here if you wanna read it - what sticks out to me is the way everybody is kinda doing their little part moving the conversation and their own reads.
I haven't read anything close to that here and I'm nowhere near as good of a player as the one. My reads are, reeally bad It just feels like we've gotten close to that in parts lately. Can't pinpoint which because I'm too lazy to do work, but Natiko going hard against the flow when I started to criticize the Ouro vote really rubbed me the wrong way there with him breaking that conversation flow.
It does feel similar. Several posters are making decent contributions so far, and trying to start conversation. I don't think Natiko intended to interrupt the flow.
Dramatic definitely music helped reading that thread.
I kinda agree regarding Natiko. I read it again earlier today and felt like I was overreaction to Natiko's posts.
Ok, stuff for tomorrow in case we lose our chat. I think we shouldn't reveal if we lose our chat due to using it on a scum lynch. The exception is if people start asking us a bunch of stuff about the chat because we have to keep lying. However, if there is something else disabling our chat (love boat 1 had this, neutral had the power to disable chats, disable three and they won) we should tell the thread.
Yeah, it's weird 😅 When I first read it I thought we were healers. It took until today for me to realize that you'd be chatting in *this* thread, but if we live for a while that could leave a nice, townie, paper trail.
I know I'm being too paranoid, but this role made it sound like we could have a scum role that can feign townie death for a while to access this chat. It's too specific tho and it's not like this is some amazing power lol
Still tho I think we can get something done. Especially when all four of us pretty much know we're town (apart from super paranoia 😛)
Oops, this probably isn't clear to you. I'm not gonna copy the PM, but our power is spiritual healer which I took as meaning doctors when I first skimmed my PM.
It's quite simple. We can send the command at any time during the day and the lynched pair, if town, will gain access to this thread for the night. If we hit scum we lose our chat for the night and next day. We can use the power as many times as we'd like to.
I keep telling myself: "It's a town lunch, there's not much to learn from voting patterns" But holy.. what a bad lynch this was. You were thankfully not power roles, but you had barely been discussed apart from some light shade being thrown. Kitsune, Kark, Ouro had way more discussion around them and a lynch would clear more stuff. Now we'll enter D2 and maybe even lylo with them alive.
--------------- Maybe gonna look at how consistent people's opinions are. If I disregard somewhat townie people it sort of doesn't make sense (I end up with every inactive) so I think we have someone town read on the scumteam like Crimson, Vere, Fire. They're playing well, but scum wanna look like them as well.
Sorry for the low activity. I wasn't there for the deadline. I'm happy you used our power. Given the nature of the game there has to be at least one chat blocking power.
It's definitely strange that the more discussed people survived. I'll look over their reactions tonight once I'm settled.
The inability to see votes late also gave people holding their vote off in fear of a tie a decent out. I did not realize what a lead they had. I'm thinking tho scum team might have had one person counting if Kark was scum, but I feel like it was town v town.
I actually still lean a little scummy on WAMD and Vel still. Dragonz was aggressive at the beginning of the day, but seemed just fine leaving a vote on Orb. I don't understand why she chose to be less aggressive towards the deadline.
Also, your list for scum feel more like you looked around to see who was already getting heat and votes on them. With no reads to go along with, this again feels like coasting with what might be considered an unoffensive play. Busy work.
Not sure what to read from this (scum Sorian coaching or taking term from town Sorian), but busy work is a term Sorian uses a lot. It sticks out as something I don't think Fat uses a lot.
