Re: Battle of Hyrdas Werewolf Game

So Thingy... you seem to attack most people who go after you. Why not me?

That's led me to think that there's something seriously off about Thingyman, and so far they're the only person that's stood out to me in this way. I'm quoting a handful of posts to share my reads. I've noticed a bunch more that seem off... so this isn't exhaustive, but it's a good start.



This is the first post that stood out to me (I started reading from the end back). It felt off... so then I looked to see if I could put reason to it. Not using a contraction on "I am" is often a tell of dishonesty.



Overaggro



Weird. You want to tell us how you're being role neutral? Why so defensive?



Now you're calm, cool, and collected.



Random accusation with no help to any of us to piece together why. Why should we believe you?



To you - a villager is unreasonable, and you're looking quite unreasonable. It seems like you're trying to look like a villager because of that.

None of these things on their own make the case, but to me there's too much weird stuff going on here to brush this off.

I'm still not 100% convinced of them being wolves myself... just that this is the strongest read I have right now. Going to look into some others now.
I'm almost always way too easy on new players because I feel like they should be super easy to read and this post says "sup dudes, I'm a villager"

Re: Battle of Hyrdas Werewolf Game

klairic is doing a very good job for his first game, if he is a wolf I'd be very surprised.

I'm ok with being a lock villager... as that's what I want to be perceived to be regardless of what side I'm on.

I think too many people make themselves difficult to read because they're afraid of getting voted out. I don't care if I go, it's a team game.

Well, I did actually make one "negative post" in response to your first vote / voicing of suspicion towards me.

But now that I've learned that this is your first game and I've seen more of your posting, I don't mind your case on me / suspicion towards me.

It should be said that I will often attack people going after me and often I will express that I think they're wolves for it, but I only mean this 50 % of the time.

Thingy - interesting timing on the big quote. You're getting attacked, and respond with a huge time consuming post... which also makes it harder for people to read what I'm saying about you.

That said I did skim it and I kinda agree with what I think his points are (though I really dislike long read posts that end up with reads of "I dunno" as they are a great way to appear to do work while not saying anything)

Not that I necessarily think that's what happened there
