you can thank me tomorrow
am I gonna have to force Gordeau over just to make this clean? I mean I will if I have to but I don't really want to.
cmon croggers do it complete the meme
Was debating writing a longer post about it, but it's not actually like... super relevant to the gamestate. Might write an article about it instead idk.
Short versions, if a "meta tell" of yours is distillable into something as black and white and surface level as "asks questions as town, doesn't as a wolf," it's missing the point of what makes meta an actual good tool in the toolbox, and turns into one of those things that's kind of right by accident until it's not.
Do you *really* want to give ma a disincentive to be conciliatory?
I've had wolf reads that I felt so strongly about that I'll bully people into following me, even on D1, but Gordeau isn't one of them. He's at about 75% for me, which is still a pretty strong read all things considered. But like, I'm not gonna twist arms here. The issues you and croggers pointed out with pretender are pretty valid IMO
My issue with their current posting is that the things they're pushing on are things that *seem* wolfy or could be painted as wolfy, rather than any kind of depth or considering about what makes something actually wolf motivated or likely to come from a wolf. For example, shading Neo by way of Neo outing a meta read on Happy at a bad/not optimal time, and saying basically "I don't see any reason for a villager to do that" is a pretty weak and safe way to shade someone. It's safe because you're just standing in this circle of your own logic, there's nothing anyone can really call you on - in your opinion it would have been better to do it a different way, so it's a wolf thing. There's no follow-through or investigation into like, ok, if that were true, why is a wolf doing it that way? What's the motivation? If it's a wolf thing, is neo partnered with Happy? What does it say about happy's alignment?
I also think the way they've been going after SPF isn't a great look.
it's not OMGUS if it's true :v
I will agree that wagon movement has been a bit lame.
In fact given wagon (lack of) dynamism I'd say either villagers have basically full control of the thread, or wolves do.
You can guess which one I think it is.
I'm considering swapping to Pret here btw.
Like, you're not *actually* his partner right? I was kind of writing off that idea because your whole "I am the lone clarion voice that can save villagers from the scary deep wolves, I have to muster all my towncred and make the right choice, it's the only thing that matters" schtick seemed way too precious and earnest to be fake, but stuff like this I am willing to admit that you might actually be a Crazy Like A Fox wolf archtype. In which case, props, for sure.
lol the triple hit
And that was the moment that croggers SPF and I became best friends
If you're a villager I think this is one of those posts that's either gonna look really really good or really really bad later on :P
is that TWTBAW or is that TWTBTWTBAW, because it's definitely one of those two things
But the bolded especially is a good point. I'll kind of mentally move them to "needs sorting".
