Last few vanillas I've been able to do pretty well poe'ing wolfy people within two days.
D1 is a ****shoot but d2 on I am GOATish.
the eventual lynch on d1 can be a crapshoot, but it's one of the more important days for yielding info on later rereads imo

I've been making a lot of thread-flow reads lately with a lot of success, although it's not something I can explain well because I don't even understand it enough.
i understand this thought
since you didn't enter with a reads list on every player, can i assume you're a villager?
learn how to read since you were mentioned quite clearly
oh there i am
which game are you referring to where i sucked?

My last 2 wolf games have been subpar. i believe my best wolf game of the past year or so was when i wolfed with binkles vmf and whoever the **** it was that was utr all game and somehow won for us; but that wasnt even a great game. i think i wolfed with vix and aksdal this year and i wasnt very good but i spewed aksdal villager which i believe won us the game iirc.
id like to be all metsy and say i can replicate my wolf game still; but i'm definitely rusty. Since I have become a less spazzy more analytical player (ie since August or so), I don't think i have had the opportunity to wolf much. my turbo wolfing has been atrocious
You're good at it, but you don't understand it to explain it?
Now's your chance.
I really don't know how to start explaining this, but I'll try.
when there is a wolf in the middle of a bunch of villagers and they're all interacting, the flow kinda breaks a little bit with their posting. I think wolves are particularly bad at keeping up with how the villagers are thinking, even early. so sometimes I feel a wolf is posting but I don't know who the wolf is, and then I make in-page POE reads considering the most villagery posts and I'm getting kinda good at finding wolves that way. again, this is not something I can explain well yet because it's not like I'm just isolating someone and reading their posts and making a case. thread flow takes into consideration every player and every interaction, and you get to smell something fishy is going on quite often without being able to point out exactly what it is.
