Well I had strong townreads on everyone except Aes (good job Fatmo on fooling me) and that information he gave when first revealing he took both remaining shots was simply exactly what I found when receiving the visions of the day 3 shots, so I just he was noob scum that didn’t know how to lie with what little info the scum team already had. I analyzed the literally 1 single contribution made, and then I used bad angleshooty tactics to attempt to confirm what I already believed.

It's one of those things - being vengeful towards lurking townies feels good, but also loses games.I get dweller played terribly, but you still have to grit your teeth and try to determine if he's town or not. I get that everyone can be wrong, but when you're wrong, it's much better to have looked at both possibilities first, and just plain old been incorrect, rather than getting tunneled on just one possibility. God knows that I've been guilty of that countless times though.

So, what happened with dweller: there are only two bullets left in the gun! One of the scum nabbed one already. And there is no killing bullet at all today (it was a vig kill instead). Why? Because that's more of a surprise than there actually being a killing bullet at this point, and the point of the gun is to be unpredictable.

God are we sure Fatmo’s scum? Because that last post is just *chef’s kiss*

Also, as a general rule, if you’re not going to make an effort to play, I’m not going to make more than the absolute bare minimum effort to read you. And I get it, sometimes shit happens and we’re a lot busier than expected. I assume this is why CT wasn’t the most active of players, but CT was actively participating whenever they had time to show up in the thread, so I’m fine with their activity level in this game. But if you’re going to pull a dweller, dwiltse, and/or agnimandur and just straight up not even play, then what are we even doing here?

Because I didn’t believe what he was saying. After giving a list of two effects while saying he wasn’t given descriptions (????!!!!!!!?!!!!?!!) I just assumed he was noob scum that wrote down 2 unused bullets in the list of bullets scum was given at the beginning of the day.

I dismissed it with a simple “yeah. no.” Because I was at work and right about to go start a presentation, and I figured someone else would be able to make that easy to make connection (and Kim did).

You read the only contribution he made and went straight to "Yeah, no." That was the comment I was referring to in particular. You blew off what he was trying to say, while Kim, for example, was at least engaging with his claim and trying to figure out town vs. scum narratives.

Disagree with the “I’m not even trying to read Dweller” claim. What have they done that’s even remotely readable? I even tried to push them to give us their reads!

I tested the literal only testable contribution they made over the course of 2 game days.

So Fatmo is scum? Shit. Well played. Apologies to town for what I did, straight up didn’t see that rule.

Yeah I have no sympathies that reading into when I check my PMs is gonna screw up the town. That was never supposed to be a legit strategy for this game: scum can, and have, lied about shooting the gun.

Nanook: To be fair, when town pulls crap like that, they get what they get. If Aes were town and dweller was scum, there'd be a serious argument for calling the game in favour of the scum immediately. I'd probably do it TBH.

Cut and dried modkill, no two ways about it. You HAVE to modkill UFO there.

Plus UFO was just dead wrong. Almost as though there's a reason angleshooting shouldn't be used.

And it loses town the game by pulling them off a scum kill, so that’s nice.

Yeah that was dumb. Pretty cut and dried honestly.
