pez isn't retarded and wouldn't give scum roles that town have. that post was dumb, don't be so dumb, and don't dare say I'm guessing the setup as I'm not. I know how he operates as a host to some degree and he likes his strong fake claims and won't give mafia duplicate roles.
Let me ask why FlashFlood would claim BG day 1 if he was scum when it's a common role? They would have to wait until night 1 before mafia could use a role revealer to see if there was one in the game.
1. There are cases that town doesn't have the roles that mafia possess. In such situations, the mod confirms this in the mafia QT early on. If assuming that Flashflood is the mafia BG, then this is applicable.
2. If he was town BG, his role should've affected the lightningrod. (Did he say who he actually tried to protect anyway?) But it didn't, and the notion of a rolestopper hasn't been answered by any informative role (e.g. all roles but the mafia kill would be blocked, so everyone with a night role should've gotten the dreaded PM).
3. If FlashFlood is actually Town BG, a bigger defense is expected of him. This is the most important reason for my lynching him b/c he seems to have given up, when in fact, if he is the town BG, he should've been able to defend himself better. He's pretty much done nothing.
Magic makes the point. How is he supposed to defend against tunnelling using hypothetical circumstances? He claims a completely legitimate role and character that hasn't been countered at all and CP is attacking him for it automatically and stupidly assuming it's a fake claim given to him.
Someone tell me the point of even asking for claims if he is just going to continue to push on them anyway with the "scum have strong fake claims" argument. You could fucking apply that to ANY claim.
The OP says DON'T ASSUME ANYTHING about the setup or the game. What's the first thing everyone does? Assume he's using a fucking fake claim for a common role. This lynch is moving on fucking woeful reasoning.
