    BIG thanks to MU as a whole for being here and for helping my off-site game continue.

    I no longer need any subs or alternates, so this thread can be disregarded.
  2. I need 2 alternates ASAP for a WW game on FTR

    Super late notice, and that's on me.

    I'm modding a game of JK9 and I need 2 subs to step in.
    We're at the end of D1 in a Werewolf game on flopturnriver.com with 2 no-shows.

    Game days are Tue - Fri with game nights on Sat - Mon.
    At the time of this post, there are fewer than 100 posts in that game thread.


    If you're interested in joining, please respond so I can help you create an account on FTR and get into the game.


    If you join my game, I'll extend D1 a bit to allow you to catch up, and the other players to have a chance to read your posts and respond prior to EOD1.


    Thanks for your time.

    My remaining question came up after it was no longer relevant.

    If the Hider hides behind XXX, then the Bus Driver switches XXX w/ YYY, what are the possible outcomes?

    If XXX is Scum, but YYY is Town. What happens?
    Vise versa.

    How to effectively troll Thingyman 101:
    Tell him, "2 + 2 = 4 just feels wrong."

    I know that it was merely Alette's distrust of you (in game) that made her so hesitant to agree with anything you said. If I ignore that and pretend she was just trolling you, though... she wins all the gold stars.

    Yeah... You were off the rails enough that I was curious if you might actually be the kind of player who would look at the SK wincon and think, "What's the most epic win I could pull off? Eliminate all the Mafia ASAP and then rule the Town with my kingly proclamations! Muhahahaha!"

    I'm still not clear as to how lilrascal thought Thingyman would take that line. I'm not clear how lilrascal votes for Thingyman on D3 when Thingyman was on (and pushing hard) both scum lynches on D1 and D2.
    I'm not calling him out or anything. He just blindsided me.

    Are you stating that there is no point, or really asking what is the point?

    The point is that it a common human response which facilitates the learning process by reinforcing the risk to achieving your goals with that action.

    If the lesson is learned, then the point of the bad feeling has been made.

    That's just how it feels to discover you were wrong.
    It's interesting to note that actually being wrong feels just like being right. It's only the transition from wrong to right that feels bad.

    So it's just a part of learning.

    Frankly, the modkill is almost a mixed blessing to the Town in that it absolutely proves that Thingyman's story checks out for every solid piece of evidence in the game.

    It is ABSOLUTELY certain now that the 5-T hypothesis is bunk.

    Yeppers. I'd have been dumbfounded if it went any other way. Thingyman's line just doesn't make sense if he's not Town.

    At this point, I'm guessing Shotgun Vlad for PR. If his Vanilla claim didn't end w/ a question mark, I wouldn't switch my read on him. Even now, it seems like he's changed his meta to include the ruse.

    We know Jerome is a baddie here.

    How can lilrascal be defending him so hard? They can't be teammates.

    Is it possible that lilrascal is SK and somehow the N1 and N2 passed with only 1 death each?

    If both Jerome and lilrascal are bad, then there was only 1 T rolled. There have to be more specials that have fake claimed Vanilla.

    Thingy has said plenty. If lilrascal votes on Thingyman, then we need to figure out how it is that lilrascal is the SK. I know he's way too qualified as a Townie to vote for someone on D3 after they lead the wagons on D1 and D2 that killed scum.

    Thingyman probably knows it, too. If he's even awake.

    ***
    My most general advice is to walk away whenever your blood starts pumping. Adrenaline is the downfall of many players. Trusting your gut and being impulsive are not the same. If your emotions are raging, then you're reading the thread with preconceived notions. That's what the baddies want you to do.

    When you think you read something in a post and it's what you wanted to read... be suspect of yourself. Confirmation bias will have anyone in the game looking like Scum if you tunnel on them hard enough.

    Specific advice to xCoCo is to be more patient when getting votes.
    Votes don't mean anything other than you're being misread (or that's your angle, if you're Scum). A few votes going your way is par for the game and largely, I recommend ignoring them. If anything, give brief and concise accounts of why you did what you did. ALWAYS add more than an argument. If you're spending posts answering people's questions, then that is taking from the time you spend hunting for baddies. Balance is needed and the weight goes to the hunting. Getting caught up in your own defense is ultimately bad for your team, regardless of alignment.

    (obv talking about myself in 2nd person)

    Nope.

    There are safer fake-claims in the lineup. If someone else claims tracker, then there's only a low probability that there are 2 full trackers in the game.

    And that's on top of how if he's the SK, then he picked the single hardest possible way to achieve victory and went balls to the wall from post ~50.

    Does that sound like Thingyman to you? I don't know him that well, but he seems to be an exceedingly rational player.

    I just realized that if this game is a clean sweep for Town that both my last games were a clean sweep for my team.

    My last game was my first game as a baddie, and my partner and I were both alive to celebrate our win.

    I don't think there is any game mechanic or combination thereof where you hide behind XXX and you die but XXX doesn't - unless you hid behind a baddie.

    The only thing that can prevent your hide is a commute... meaning that you are immune from NK.

    Once hidden, the only way you die is if A) Your target is NK, then you both die
    or B) Your target is a baddie and only you die.

    Jerome is DEF. a baddie. And def. today's lynch.

    If not Jerome, then what happened?

    Hiding happens before Role-blocking in resolution of night actions.
    JOAT can't RB you and kill you, because you'd be hidden before he could RB. His target fizzles.
    (Unless I misunderstand the rules.)

    My guess is that he targeted Thingyman, who was jailed by Alette.

    Wrap it up!

    It's hard to rule out the SK with so many potential ways the Town could thwart one of the NK.

    Everything coming from Thingyman reads to me as Town-vibe. Of course, the SK reads as town, but Thingyman would have to be pulling a VERY high-risk strategy as SK to win like this. I don't believe that is happening.

    The cross-post clears Alette, at least.

    Meaning today's vote should be between Jerome and Rogue Monkey, from my PoE, regardless of Thingyman's gambit.

    My top baddie picks are
    Alette, Jerome, Rogue Monkey

    Unless I'm wrong, everyone else is basically cleared by activity.

    Beluga Whale - soft cleared by D1 vote dynamics

    lilrascal - Pulled out his Town game in D2.
    Marrowick - cleared by confirmed Hider.
    Shotgun Vlad - soft claimed VT. Wouldn't do this as any other role (meta)
    Thingyman - Would not bus all of his allies so hard on D1, D2. -EV strat against unknown players.
    Tyrant - Mostly the same as Thingyman.
  38. Tracker, obv.

    I never lost my suspicion of Jerome. Thingyman is picking up on that same stuff.

    Thingyman has made the hardest soft claim ever. I have every reason to trust Thingyman, and I'd vote Jerome.

    Well... I doubt Smart Bomb talks about an imaginary baddy buddy with hope.

    Welcome xCoCo. GG, WP.

    I know you caught a lot of flack for your outing, but your role was such that it wasn't really a problem.

    Who did you (try to) hide behind on N2?
  43. Well, if the Mafia have a Bus Driver, then...

    Well, if the Mafia have a Bus Driver, then possible number of T's rolled is {0,1,2,5}
    The bus driver rules out 3 and 4. xCoCo's claim rules out 7.
    It can't be 6, because that means the Town already won.

    Ergo:
    If there are any more Mafia, there is exactly 1 JOAT. Probability of JOAT is 58%
    There may or may not be an SK. Probability of SK is 56%
    Probability of both is 14%

    If there is an SK in the game then there is very likely a doctor who made a successful save on N1.

    There's no real rush and I prefer the game to continue a bit longer, since I was dead before D2.

    I don't see the problem with Smart Bomb, really. I would not be on his wagon.
    He's got a few lengthy posts where he is giving his reads on multiple players. That's going to be hard to maintain. Granted, his D2 has been lackluster. He's nowhere near the bottom of my list.

    I think his Vanilla Town claim is going to be accurate more than 80% of the time.
    It's a pretty lame fake-claim in this format. Especially since the Mafia are NOT going to mess up another fake claim in this game.

    So yeah... if the Bomb gets dropped, I expect he's Town.
    Vanilla Town at that. So there are worse ML.
