I tried, guys, I tried.

I thought you had some very good arguments.  I liked the part about falling off your chair if Sudgy is scum  ;)

It's a game, darling, no worries.  Hope you had fun though!  And you learned something: Always listen to raerae.    :P

I have been forced to accept that lackluster play is a town tell for you.

And....  okay, prepare for cheesiness...  always be yourself because otherwise you'll look scummy, and never ever trust someone who's name is a palindrome.

Well, that was interesting to watch. And to play... wait nvm. Being lynched on the first day isn't too fun.

Well done mcmc and liopoil, great scum. (is that a compliment? "You're great at being scum!" Imagine saying that to someone out of context.) My day one vote was right  ;D!

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

Oh! Kooshie, to explain my thoughts further and why I was leaning mcmc/sudgy over mcmc/liopoil:

At this point in the game, I didn't think scum would want to risk losing the game just to try and acquire a flawless victory. Thus I thought that IF scum could bus with a hammer, they would've done so long before the day got dragged on and on. If the teams were mcmc/lio (or even Raerae/Sudgy, although I didn't believe that), then one scum would have the opportunity to flip to his partner and hammer (in this case liopoil moving to mcmc).

Because that didn't happen, my best conclusion was that scum were already split between the two wagons, and thus could not switch to hammer. This only works if the team is Sudgy/mcmc.

Now, I realized (as noted in the spec QT) that from town!Raerae's perspective, the teams could ONLY be mcmc/Sudgy or mcmc/lio. In either case Raerae knew with 100% certainty that mcmc was scum.

The flip side, of course, is that town!liopoil knows with 100% certainty that Sudgy is scum, since the teams can only be Sudgy/Raerae or Sudgy/mcmc - and because of this if he WERE to switch to hammer his scumbuddy it would not be in keeping with his town persona, since why would any town switch from 100% scum to 50%?

However, things weren't nearly so locked at the start of the day, and I just felt that scum!liopoil would've looked harder for ways to bus, rather than let himself get trapped into being tied with mcmc. As such, even if I had lynched mcmc in your shoes, I would've gone into the final day more suspicious of Sudgy than Liopoil (had I lived the night).

Faust has also been incredibly stubborn this game. In other news, it's hot in the summer, and water falls from the sky when it rains.
