Re: ROOKIE GAME THREAD!!! (9:30 pm EOD)

and I'll tell you why:

the seer was on him at the beginning, but clearly not as a peek. My guess is he peeked villagers until then and was still trying to wolfhunt anyway. Just having a wolfy feel doesnt mean peek.

His reasons were because Ilya sounded non-confrontational, exclaiming that he was clueless and a noobie and didnt know what to do. IMO this is not a noob wolf strategy AT ALL.

Ilya was being honest, and he really DIDNT know what to do or how to make good reads, it was his first game. After all, who isnt completely lost on their first game.

Re: ROOKIE GAME THREAD!!! (9:30 pm EOD)

lol its all good dj, anyway as I was saying....

Ilya has been a target for two main reason.
1) general inactivity
2) when he does post it has no real content

to be honest, sure he may seem like a good vote. I realize at some point in every WW game, it gets to be where the villagers dont have strong enough reads and will prey on any semblance of doubt at all. Better to get rid of a weak villager with a 10% chance of being a wolf than to just rand it up. HOWVER, if you reread Ilya's posts of importance, I think it is clear that he really doesnt know how to contribute. I mean, the villager role can be a bit overwhelming for a first time player when you cant trust anyone

I was happy once you pointed out your bonus points.
But thanks for the effort anyway.

Re: ROOKIE GAME THREAD!!! (9:30 pm EOD)

And just to add some content again.

I don't have plans to vote goofy, card or stark anytime soon. I think a karak/WER wagon would be pretty sweet tomorrow. (karak for going utr, WER for seemingly having lost any interest in the last two days.)
When it comes to the "pure" utr people I'd go JD/jumanji first.

And will not be around for the next two eods (life is calling), but will be around here at other times.

Quote:
my god, I've read through 675 posts and am still clueless o_O.

I do recall a few avatars n stuff. So given that I've never played this before, I'll be pretty useless, I'm sorry in advance.

Now, do people pull up an excel sheet and put their reads etc in there or how do people keep track? Also, what's the relevance of the post counts being posted here a while earlier?


Also, just reading through basic villager strategy:

Quote:
It's hard to keep track of who said what in there. Other villagers will see 100 posts since they last checked the thread, and just give up. If they bother with the thread at all, it's to hop to the end, and they vote for whoever looks like a likely target.
It is very daunting to read through 670 posts, where maybe 100 were of any real value. I don't know how these games are usually run but I don't want to spend my days sifting through haystacks, looking for a couple of needles Just my 2 cent observation. "





This looks pretty wolfy. No content, making excuses about being a noob. Not voting d1 seems like something a noob wolf would do. He also voted Malgin for no clear reason. I don't like the late vote and I don't like the logic behind it.


Now if you look at the posts that Bingo was suspicious of, you can see that they are relatively consistent. I dont think a wolf just comes out and says these things. Although it appears he isnt helping the village much by admittedly just tagging along, I think the tone of these posts is more of honesty than of deception. The fact that the player who brought these posts up ended up a seer doesn not necessarily damm Ilya, as seer's are trying to uncover wolves by organic means along with their special power. If/when I am seer I do my best to leave subtle peeks but also am trying to make normal reads on players I havnt peeked, as it is +EV for the village.

It is my conclusion that the seer DID NOT peek ilya at any point, was making an honest read, but was mistaken. Ilya CLEARLY does NOT look like a wolf in his posts, so other than the UTR effect there isnt much to go after him for.

Dont really know if tomorrows wagons are set in stone or not, but I hope we can uncover a real wolf or the SK. With 2 players dieing each day, it can reach endgame very fast so we cant afford to waste a lynch. I am gonna read over the game tonight and hopefully have reads for tommorow. I will be back to cast my vote on corsakh if needed but theres no reason to MAJ night because all it does is deprive us as some communication time until night.

Re: ROOKIE GAME THREAD!!! (9:30 pm EOD)

Plus I am a bit surpised nobody has pointed out yet how decidedly RiverFenix has defended myself. Makes me wonder how many people read dead wolfs posts.

So if anyone wants to wagon me - there's a good reason.

I mean, this post was sick wolfy even before we knew RF was a wolf:
