First order of business: gambit / charry masonry claim.
I think this is v/v > v/w >> w/w (maybe even v/v >> v/w).
So, I don't think they are ever w/w. I don't think that discussion of their out of game discussion is fake. I just can't see two wolves coming up with that as a strategy to sell their claim ever.
v/w I don't think makes a lot of sense for a game of this size. That is more of a gimick for really big games that are inherently pro villa.
So v/v is the predominant favorite here.
