for claiming when almost lynched
+ helps town not waste time.
+ lets town know your role and offer advice
+ lets town know what your role is and if that means there isn't one for the mafia (ie, a town tracker and a scum tracker isn't always likely)
+ if a good role, you might be protected anyways and have nothing to fear
+ lets scum know you're role
+ if town doesn't buy the claim and lynches you, then you flip scum, it lets town know that there is a 99% chance that scum was given fake claims
for not claiming:
+ you keep your role safe
+ if town, you wasted a lynch for town
+ if scum, you helped town
+ scum might kill you anyways in thinking you have a powerful role in not claiming
This makes it seem that scum killing you is a bad thing, it's all relative to the role, if you're VT, why claim under pressure when you could draw the scum kill away be appearing to have a better role?
It also is very beneficial to scum though, any time spent barking up the wrong tree is good for scum, sure scum would love a mislynch, but a no lynch is almost as good, and near a no lynch, town panics and can easier mislynch.
Thanks for the support and great username/avatar/sig.
He seems to have given up in the sig, did he just throw a TAINT?
my plans for day two are to push on prons. i'm sure we'll hear for him at some point, but i want to hear from him now before he becomes a nuisance.
i should actually read, but it takes too much effort and day one reads don't hold weight for me. i'll continue to look at names until one pops up, which works well most of the time.
I can get behind an MDP investigation.
Hey IMPULSE. You'll enjoy this. Why do you merely hint at wanting to pressure players but never bite the bullet and do so? Answer in 100 words or less, preferably without referencing previous games. The irony is I think I accused you of this in another game
He's a little pussy, afraid of the vengeful townie like lawls and the lie-detector.
I've made like 4 posts and put forth no effort.
What exactly are you reading?
Your shit and you're shit, not that hard to read the smears.
"5. Town are “Forks Aligned” and the town win condition is, “You win when Forks is the only faction remaining.”"
Lynch this scumbag
Not sure how this means anything when A) paraphrasing may change the words, and B) town fucking has that info as well as scum, means little.
Am I the only one in this game with theme knowledge?
Google says no, though my roommate does have the books downstairs.
i hope this nexus doesn't work like stax, where you hit the nexus and hit other people, but didn't know who.
the cop could hit mark if clueless. we could randomly hit scum, the second most successful method after following me.
I don't believe in not using bad ideas until they've been proven wrong in play.
a sminroff ice. that's what the vampires in Twilight drink, right?
MetalX isn't confirmed scum because he pushed a lynch on you. He voted you, gave reasoning, and you didn't do a good defense. If anything he is just trying to be a helpful townie. If he is wrong, then he'd be smart to claim the next day if votes pile up. But I won't voting him regardless of what you flip.
*circles post for later* If Ziggs comes up scum, remember this defense of him.
Don't like Shepard suggesting pursuing MetalX if Ziggler flips town. He's better than that.
Eh, there's better ideas out there. People will look like scum whether they defend or harass Ziggler and his interactions at this point. But then again, any action can be painted as scum trying to appear town.
