I disagree. I was kinda doing so in your game but that's been my only scum game in ages, not that i'm complaining. I much prefer being town. If I had been scum as much as IMP i'd probably tank even harder in every aspect

the only way to survive past day three shep is to tank like me in town games and coast like me in scum games. hey magic my coasting is a product of being perma scum, look at stuff and alcoholic and you'll see that perma scum float an their town games are basically nonexistent after their runs.

The Alcoholic award for Most Underrated Player - dan marino

i know i destroyed his ability to float to wins w/ my massive smear campaign but he's a top tier player who doesn't get enough recognition.
I agree actually. I'll add a Dan nomination for most underrated. He caught me when I was scum iirc and he always worried me.

HoL is probably busy and our mafia probably doesn't interest faraday anymore. he goes against the BIG BOYS or some shit on mafiascum. I'd go there too if I wouldn't be completely shit. I also prefer this forum's mafia over theirs as it's less serious here.
I was pretty regularly in the top 3 posters (often top) until I got my job

I preferred the personalities when I first started playing. perhaps it was just the heavy flaming that used to occur, but I found the games a lot more funny/fun. there was also a time when I used to interact with IMPULSE every game for a lengthy amount of time, but even he bores me now.
I enjoyed being scum with Fap in your game because, like you said he was just toying with town and seeing what he could get away with. He was genuinely surprised with how scummy he was able to be which I guess shows how poor town was in that game. (and probably in general)

Yeah that shit gets me. The only way people are going to start taking you seriously is if you're doing it on a consistent basis, or if you quit saying stupid shit. I started off with some god awful cases but then I started making cases which made sense and was doing well at end game and POE (which is easy for anyone to do for the most part if they've paid enough attention to the game) so I feel like I hold more influence in a game, not LOADS or anything but enough that people will usually listen to my case and occasionally sheep

Re: Mafia Awards 2012.

I didn't really get to fully read my game as my internet cut out and when I got it back it was already over and I had little desire to read bad play from town, but I doubt you impacted town as negatively as I do when I'm scum. And I don't care how egotistic or arrogant I sound when talking about my scum game because the games I play as scum back up what I say, it's all there if anyone wants to read it. I(with the help of teammates of course) dismantle town and cause a ton of mislynches, even after being pegged as scum with info. multiple times I've gotten people lynched after they've claimed info on me and town only lynches me after they flip town/have role that provides info. I don't think my town game is that good, so this arrogance balances out, for me at least.


dan isn't underrated for the simple fact that everyone knows he's good. at least anyone that knows what they're doing. he probably is top tier in terms of his ability to play, he just doesn't have DAT INFLUENCE as he doesn't push as much as others.

Yeah you were incredibly active too, but that's when the section was already active. this section was far worse in terms of activity like 2 years ago and games that got over 1000 posts were rare.


faraday has an absurd amount of pull in this section and that will never change. people don't want to think he's scum because his town game is so good that people want him to lead them. idk, it's been like that for a long time too.

Re: Mafia Awards 2012.

Fap conned me bad in Wildlife. I fell for it hook, line and sinker and since then i've been pretty petrified of his scum game. (well as 'petrified' as you can be in mafia)

I probably didn't impact as negatively as you do but my point is that you're not the only one who isn't a SCARED COWARD when scum. There are a few players who try to/can lead town as scum.

Being incredibly active back then was tougher because of the increased activity

It's much easier to make the top few posters in these less active games. I've been in the top 5/6 pretty consistently and i've been working 45 hour weeks. Says a lot for some of the coasting that goes on in games now

yeah it's weird b/c I was really bad in my first 2-3 games. like legit worst game ever in my first game type stuff.

that is kind of sad in terms of the site meta. i thought you were pretty obviously scum in twilight but apart from that I don't remember seeing you as scum. oh countries of the world where you replaced into a scum slot where I had claimed SK

that game was great. claim SK after being tracked to a kill --> get hiplop lynched for being a mafia tracker (he flipped town?) --> get actual scum lynched over myself

Re: Mafia Awards 2012.

i use to mind fuck towns when i was scum less often see watchmen and apocalypse where i team with stuff, and maverick and own town.

what messes with me know is trying to avoid the permanent scum tag that stuff and alcoholic received which is a headache. i've avoided for the most part and no one outside of me realizes stretches of me being scum in 7/9 games.

when i was playing hard as town i was a headache to mafia b/c i would force POE at around 15 players and box scum in and force a mass claim in a position where town would have favorable numbers and multiple phases to get shit done. i paid close attention to games and could narrow down scum easily.

the wire was my last in control scum game, i've become to passive. but i had two scum teams courting me to get them the win. the end of the wire will never be replicated on here.

Re: Mafia Awards 2012.

imp you should type in proper sentences and see how your game changes.

Re: Mafia Awards 2012.

people would read me easier and why would i want that? the structure i use works for me and discourages people from reading too much into my post and picking up subtle tells.
