vote: MiX

I actually have a lot of town reads, but thereís a thing or two that have pinged me about MiX that makes him somewhere between least-townie & most-scummy.

I guess the advantages in claiming mirror the disadvantages:

Advantages:
- It guides our PR's. Cops, Number Cops, Trackers, Watchers, Roleblockers, Jailors, etc all gain value out of a guideline for how inherently scummy Ash believes a player's Flavor/Name/Character to be. It doesn't mean that high number claims are scum or that low number claims are town, especially given that scum have fake claim numbers and can simply lie... but it DOES provide guidelines without ACTUALLY telling scum what PR's do/do not exist within the game and who has them.

Neutral:
- It doesn't actually tell scum or town anything specific. A "townier" number does not necessarily equate to a "stronger PR". That is, a 1-out-of-10 may very well be an IC, but that doesn't necessarily mean that scum want to kill that player first, or that the player is the biggest night-action threat that they face. For all they know a town player with a 7-out-of-town, despite (apparently) being a super-slimeball in Ash's eyes, may have a PR that reads "If you survive to Night 3, you may activate your PR to reveal all remaining scum". Ok, that's (probably) an exaggeration, but you get my point.

Disadvantages:
Scum, at least from a single-scum-team perspective, generally will know who is telling the truth about their numbers. And as we don't know what their PR's are, or how they interact/play off that knowledge, we cannot know to what benefit they may be able to use this knowledge. Maybe they gain little, maybe they gain lots. Claiming would be a roll of the dice.

-----

In my personal experience, I have seen D1 claiming massivly help town once, and I've seen it massively help scum many more times than that. I don't believe given our lack of understanding about how much it would help scum out that claiming makes sense. Then again, I've never felt that way. If Ash were playing and not modding I would expect him to be pushing otherwise though. But I don't believe it's completely accurate to make a blanket case for it being "purely good" or "purely bad" with no upsides/downsides. I think it falls somewhere in between. I'm just generally against it.

I have 0 knowledge of the show, but am inclined to agree with Swan that thereís almost certainly more than two base win cons in play. Iíve no idea if that means Survivor, Second Scum faction, SK, Cult or whatever though.

Iím not as convinced by his argument for not number claiming, though Iím neither convinced by the arguments that we should do. Mainly I feel the people arguing for fit into the group that I would expect to argue for. Swan being against so early seems a little out of character for him? I dunno. Maybe not.

I mean - i am open to being wrong on the number part. What upside can you math out for doing it?

I honestly havenít had the time or energy to think about it - you know what my weekends been like lol.

Really my point was that reading arguments made thus far both for and against, I havenít been moved either way.

Right now I'm pinning SpaceAnemone at about a 4 on the flavor rating and joth at a 6. Not expecting to change my mind.

This is bizarrely specific. What exactly are you basing this on?

I had exactly the same thought. Between the ďallyĒ claim and putting exact values on folks...itís not a good look.

Pubbyís statement of ďI believe ĎXí D1 and wonít be changing my mindĒ is exactly pulled from what he did as Town in 123 - I believe regardless of his alignment this is intentionally done... so make of that what you will.

Room 1 got a lot easier when I realized I could see the shell up top and time my jumps to when it went to the right.  I also duck jumped to make my jumps last longer.

I did a spin jump facing forward, which auto hit bowser each time. But yes, untiming myself from the spring sound to the shell visual was key.

Ah... then yeah, you never had a chance, at least for that room. But I think that most people who would be playing on super-expert know about bomb slides; at least I see plenty of levels that require them... I suppose I could have put a "Z" to tell people to spin jump.

Throughly enjoyed it. I peeked into each room once to get an understanding of what I was aiming to do before restarting and running the level clean. I one shot each of the rooms (order of personal difficulty: 5-3-4-1-2), but then, alas, I weak jumped the final launch in 2 after Bowser was dead to end up in the flames. 😭😭😭. Ah well.

So I made this today and just had to share because... my goodness was it delicious!!!


free photo host

Specs:

1.5 oz Gin (used a London Dry - Bombay Sapphire)
.75 oz St. Georgeís Raspberry Liqueur
.5 oz Orgeat
.5 oz Lemon Juice
2 Dashes Orange Bitters
1Egg White
Seltzer

- I shook all the ingredients except the Egg & Seltzer with ice to chill. I then removed the ice and added the egg white, allowing 15 seconds for the Lemon Juice to begin to denature the egg proteins, before dry shaking again for another 45 seconds. After pouring into my glass, I topped it with Seltzer and garnished with the Raspberries.

(why crumb that role at all?), but mostly just seem to be a knee-jerk defense in response being accused of sheeping faust.
Breadcrumbing is a good idea with this role because he knows for sure someone is town. In case he is killed, that person can be IC. I don't know if Joseph would do that. It seems just as likely that he would have tried to get the townie lynched to get the individual win.

He only wins if the lynchee is lynched, he canít win with town.

This. His only win condition was to lynch the lynchee.

16
Nah, with you having chimed in, Iím good with the hammer. vote: Gkrieg

17
Gkrieg - Do you believe that you wouldíve lost to MiX had he challenged you yesterday?

18
@gkrieg - I know it was hypothetical, but that was left out of most of your posts. And they were very long. It would be so much more helpful if you organized the information you want us to consider. I know you didn't make that specific statement. That was intended to stand in for all the variations in which you referred to someone as someone else's partner without any justification or caveat.

What is your response to Joseph's statement that he had his own reasons for voting ADK?

PPE: Galzria -- An IC we'll be lynching? Are you talking to gkrieg?

Yes. Either heís scum and we win, or heís not and scum is between ADK/MiX. Gkrieg is currently operating with 100% of the information weíll have after his lynch. Assuming heís town, heís at least trying to figure out who the last scum is.

19
Just vote gkrieg!

I would rather have Spaceís analysis now, in case Gkrieg flips town and then Space dies at night.

I am flipping town. Don't know why people are rushing this so much.
What was the point of the long posts showing who was mentioned when by ADK and MiX? Did you draw any conclusions from that?

I was trying to highlight the partner interactions of ADK and MiX with their scum partners. I guess I was trying to show that either (if ADK is scum) you shouldn't give IC status based off the idea that ADK is the lynchee, or that MiX bussed his partners really hard.

One of the two must be true, so I was trying to figure out if ADK really was the lynchee, and if they weren't, what did their interactions with their partners look like, or to see if Datswan and chairs interacted with either ADK or MiX.

I'm town that is going to be lynched before anyone looks into ADK and MiX, so I was trying to make it easier to read them and their interactions with the two flipped scum.
It's scummy to say "MiX voted his partner", when it's nowhere near conclusive that MiX is even scum.

Note that I am approaching this as a hypothetical. Did you read the whole post? I also never actually said what you put in quotes, which is misleading.

The point was that when y'all lynch me today, you will have to think through the situation I just posed:

1. MiX is scum: requires that he bussed his partners very hard

2. ADK is scum: someone else was the lynchee

I'm trying to give you information (because no one seems to be rereading) so that minimal rereading is required to make that decision.

Donít feel too attacked here. I completely agree. Thereís no new information forthcoming this game so Iím basically treating you as an IC that weíll be lynching today. If youíre scum, we win. If youíre town, your input is equally as valid as any remaining IC tomorrow. Youíre working with identical information as everyone else - so by all means go for it.

You know, itís funny - I havenít fully tried to put my feelings on the conclusion into writing until I wrote this text to my mother earlier today. Thought I would share:

Iím doing something that I probably shouldnít - Iím about halfway through a reread of Book 1 of GoT. Iím not sure if somehow I believe that, show ended, Martin will somehow feel a release of pressure and finally be capable of finishing his story, or if Iím just hopefully seeking a more satisfying conclusion. Maybe Iím just suffering GoT withdrawals knowing thereís nothing more to come.

I wasnít hugely disappointed with the finale, in that Iím not at all surprised that they happy ended most still living characters - and further, I think the overall feel of the ending is actually what Martin intended/intends. Certainly I think Bran as King and Dany Dead is exactly what was planned from the beginning. My dissatisfaction isnít the ending itself, itís that the storylines werenít borne out to justify such a conclusion. Everything that happened was plausible enough, if given time and space and story to develop. I believe the show couldíve sold the exact (or near enough) sane ending to great acclaim if built out over seasons 7-11 instead of slam packed into 7 & 8.

As a reader or observer, you need to feel invested, and you want to feel rewarded. HBO spent 6 seasons building off the written material to invest itís viewers in the show. Even the deviances from the book were  accepted, as the show still took the time it needed to be compelling and engaging. The story, if not all the details, was there. And as a viewer, you cared. Over the past 2 seasons, HBO simply had a story to tell. They didnít know how to build upon what Martin had provided. They didnít know how to build the characters or the story, and thus the viewerís reward - the conclusion - was not earned by anyone involved - Not unjustified mind you. The ending was perfectly acceptable. Just not earned.

Request prod on Space.

Sorry.. I'm here! Work got busy, and I have no free weekends to use in compensation. I'm really sorry for my absences! :-(

Space, can you please do a fully targeted reread on MiX, and his potential to be scum with Chairs/Datswan.

How do you feel about him challenging Chairs in this pairing? Given the number of ICís, the pressure to challenge Chairs over Gkrieg yesterday, and the overall feeling that scum were already backed into a corner, is it really that unreasonable of him to challenge his partner banking on the town!cred generated to buy him the following two mislynches he would need to win?

Note, in fact, that yesterday I pointed out that had he challenged Gkrieg after it was made clear by active ICís that he should challenge Chairs that it wouldíve resulted in his immediate lynch - and if he flipped scum, Chairsís immediate lynch today.

I think I win LyLo against anyone so I don't really care anymore.

I will lynch you over ADK every time.

Aww. What if gkrieg isn't trying his hardest to win?

Why would you think he isnít? He has nothing to lose by trying as Town or as scum.

Yeah I kinda meant to say "as scum" in the end. I think he's scum that's trying to win instead of giving up.

I said I would lynch you over ADK, not over Gkrieg. I still plan on lynching him today.
