Nope! I lied there as well. The first player from a team that died was always going to flip town. If there was more than on a team in a day/night cycle then those secondary deaths would flip with their real role.

The exception would have been with Geno's role. Had Geno found someone (which hello, you were all scum) and gotten that person voted out that day they would have flipped with their real role.

Oh my gosh

The one time I actually feel like I'm playing well as scum and coming across towny is the game where everyone else thinks they are scum and I am town anyway

So now I have no idea if I improved my scum game or not lol

I told you this already, but I think it would have taken a bit for me to put together you were scum, and I wouldn't have figured it out by the point you died in the game

Also not gonna lie, if I was town I would not have pushed you with that straw poll nonsense. That felt like a weird town thing to do, not a scum thing. You just were in a game where everyone was trying to push kills they didn't believe in.

That's why this game is going to be really interesting to read over. Everyone going for the easiest kills they can push, even when it's barely suspicious. It's going to be very instructive.

also also if this isn't a bastard game would i have got modkilled for the straw poll?
I think it would depend on the gamerunner, but I would lean toward no. It's no crazier than some of the shit Blarg has pulled over the years. As someone else said a page or two back, people in here were asking if they could vote in the poll and Hedin said no.

EDIT: Obviously it would have to be kept to the players, spec would have to be instructed not to vote. And I guess it works better in this "Oops all scum" scenario - You would have hit scum no matter who won.

Wanna know something even more wild about that? Me and jman were on the same team.. it was just meant to be a little push back to get some interaction going

I would say let's try to guess the teams, but we would just give away our own teams with our guesses XD

whatever
if i knew leo was scum i push that shit so much harder i just didn't want to give town too much information if i flipped scum

like who the heck goes after the people on a vote before actually getting a flip
it sounded so ridiculous so i was trying to get town to stumble on it on their own
 

Hedin

Oops, All Scum!
Oh nin, your town flip would have been as a bodyguard which would have been interesting to see how they reacted to it.
 
you guys don't understand how badly i felt rolling scum
and i still feel bad about that game fran ran that i subbed out of because being scum was just way too much for me

i was so committed to trying my best as scum :(
what a cool game hedin

I think you played pretty well myself. Tried to make something happen that didn't quite work but still was a solid attempt.

i think this game kinda shines a light on what this community lacks in a lot of times
everyone was scum so the people making these big posts got to just skate by while all the quieter posters just kinda died and then we just are gonna keep letting the people who make big posts survive

I dunno if this is strictly true, sneeks died night 1, my team tried to kill launch, I died, Hawthorn is dead, meanwhile Kenny and stu are still in there

now that i can get this off my chest

when i got the pm my heart sank, playing as scum just gives me a whole bunch of stress
if i wasn't so hyper focused on not giving up too much info i probably play a lot differently
but uh yeah, weird game
man I feel you, finding out I've rolled scum is always a heart-sink moment

First: we had a blast making jokes through this thread about town.

Second: Hedin is right about the meta though. This game has been FILTHY with tells and I LOVE IT (I would not love playing in it tho lol).
 

Hawthorn

I'll explain my reasons later
this is probably why my love for you will never be fully realized, Thorny. we're just too different. but from across the chasm that separates us, the heroes, from you and your evil brethren, i look upon you with great love and admiration.

you scum.

Maybe one day scum and town will grow to understand each other and stop all this senseless killing

whats my tell then monkey?
If I'd not been on a team with you, I probably would have assumed you were town, actually! But if pressed to compare I would say that though I know you were NOT chill and relaxed, the way you seemed chill and relaxed definitely stands out for you. It was more "wheeeee! something's happening!" than "you are all dummies but don't listen to me because i'm also a dummy who has this one weird idea" but I don't know if I'd have seen that as a player.

BUT everyone hesitating before posting at day start consistently has been wild to watch. That's the funniest thing to me.

It has the feelling of a forest of scared woodland creatures hiding in their burrows
Nobody wanted to be the first to put something out there for fear it was the wrong reaction. That's a very scum mindset and when it's EVERYONE... lol.

Stu posted at 3 after today and that was quick for this game and it's only because he's gambiting his face off.

However, I don't think much of the individual player meta will be too useful here. This game's too weird. But I look forward to arguing about that with someone later. :D

it felt like i was playing a caricature of myself
 
I hope someone openly speculates about their being no town in the thread. There's enough people flipped to where almost every team should know that the role PMs are fake lol

Am I at 10 posts yet?
I felt bad for Geno because without knowing the setup, he must've figured that winning would be nearly impossible. And in a normal game, his gambit might have even worked. But when everyone is scum looking for an easy target on D1, they're going to latch onto him. And ironically, telling the truth was even worse for him, because scum would not hesitate to kill a cop so they were fine with voting him out.

"How the fuck is town sleep walking into killing us all with no flips"
