I've had a pretty prevalent voice earlier in the Day. Why not assess that?

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

Cue I literally explained I was town reading you half or so a page up. I even said "I think cue is town" I made it very clear I mean come on.

I am not a fan of Font trying to pick and choose what Cue assesses without actually explaining herself. I didn't mind the content, but it feels a bit slimy to go 'but I did stuff earlier!"

I might, depending on who is lynched and killed. Otherwise enough time has been spent on the subject.

Lies. I am caught up on all the happenings in this thread. Not one of which includes the mentioning of "msu" and "scum" in the same sentence.

*here I will make the probably pointless but nonetheless necessary plea that we refer to everyone as villagers and wolves (as opposed to town and mafia) for the sake of my own sanity.

Sorry. Next time I'll just take your word at face value. That usually ends up well in a game like this. :P

I've not once played a game where mafia was referred to as wolves. Well, there was one time there was a van helsing vampire/werewolf thing, but I'm talking standards here. We need standards. Why don't you like standards?

Cause I'm 'Merican and we're pretty used to bucking standards. Basically I learned to play on a site where those terms were used...and then I came to a site where those terms were used...and then we have this game where those terms aren't used...

You see my predicament?

I do, but I think I'd feel you were less bias without a wolf avatar. :P

The avatar is of little importance to me (in fact I cannot remember why I selected that particular one in the first place).

Mostly I am just too lazy to change it and have probably had it for a number of years.

That's unfortunate.

You're not doing anything. You fluff, and post jokes, and coast off of people liking you on a personal level. I get it, and if you hadn't made that scumtell, I probably would have never voted you toDay, but come on man.

The DosEspana thing is the only bit of logic you've actually given, and instead of actually following up on it, you stated trying to flatter Achro. I'm not even sure if your road vote is real or a joke. Even when you expressed suspicion of me and I gave you a chance you a chance to substantiate it, you did nothing.

I find that good players will drop hints as the best ways to correctly scumread them. You've done so here:

You believe that avoiding attention the main fights and not taking the blame for town lynches is a good way to play mafia. This is also exactly what you're doing.

Sorry Cue. I like you, but I'm going to lynch you.

Re: The 2015 Mafia Championship: Game 6

I am American, but I work 7p-7a the next three days (and then sleep) so my presence will be somewhat erratic.

(basically early-to-mid afternoon for the next few days until Thurday).

/end standard disclaimer.

That doesn't make a great deal of sense to me. If he votes for you, tells you that you have done /something/ suspicious, but wont tell you what, I don't think it is going to prevent you from looking at your play and changing it up a bit to see what it is that was bothering him. What you said you'd typically do makes far more sense, so I'm not buying into the claim that it was to see if you will keep doing it. If it was, it should have been better executed.

I went through trying to see if anyone gave away too much in their profile. Not really. Personally it feels like only achromatic, myself, and dorian really said much of anything actually of worth for me trying to learn if theyre being different. But I want to sort of point out that as much as it kills me to say this, looks like achromatic is playing according to his usual if his self description is right. Sort of takes away the joy of going after the person questioning your play the most.

Well I'll see you all in a handful of hours, probably more active in the middle of the (EST) night.
I don't know what you were hoping to learn from the bios. Seeing as we all sent them before the roles were sent out (I assume), there isn't anything worthy in them to help discern alignment. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what you are getting at here by "being different", but it seems pretty pointless to me.

I've considered explaining it, yes. Mostly I woke up, ate breakfast, quickly skimmed the thread, decided to shower, got a shower, got dressed, drove to starbucks, announced that MSU was a mafia (ugh), and here we are.

(mostly I am trying to read the thread a little more carefully now and I'll address that MSU dude (cause eff that scum (lol) guy and we should lynch him)).

Cliffs: I felt like he was mafia after my first skim for raisins and I'll explain them here in a hot minute while I collect my thoughts.

I also am a little late to the party but Teh's Taylor Swift reference went unnoticed for far too long.

(i have a crush on t. swift).

Cool. Cool. I don't blame you. I'm mafia, after all. Anyway, what's your read on banks and why they think you're different this game? And should others take that into account when reading about your read on me?

That'd be absurdly strong scum game right there tbh.
I can't tell whether you are actually being serious or whether you're looking to get some form of read on him through this, because it seems pretty arbitrary to me to give reads for that kind of play.

Probably about a 2. I know it is a team game, and otherwise I would put myself higher, but I'd like to give a good representation of OPB and myself first, and dying early hurts that. I think that's pretty reasonable.

This is actually in the Voxx list of scumtells(tm). I always regret not listening to those.

cue5c

Here, have a vote.
But the thing with the Voxx scumtells is that they are rather generic, and while I usually stick by scum tells as a form of scum hunting, I doubt that method will be particularly effective here.

Don't have a read on Banks. He probably thinks I'm different because I'm typing instead of talking. And I don't particularly care.

Is this your attempt at doing something?

If that's the case, do you think it's more reasonable to lynch someone you're suspicious of if they played in one of the 5 previous games?
