Is it on the merit of their strong start, or is it something else that stands out? I dont see it. I didnt see it even before they isod me and voted me. I thi k its another one of those core positions being dealt too easily.
So like, arete, dizzy, ?sheppard? jack and.. phi? Can consider voting me today? Go ahead please. Actually doing it vs planting hedgy seeds would actually give us a lot more rn
Thank you for sharing these, I will get to them in due time as well and hopefully that will help. I'm going to skim the wolf games for now.Originally Posted by Sloonei 1600279003 (#1732)I have not sent you games, for no reason other than that I've been too lazy to collect links, and I suppose I was waiting for a direct prompt.Originally Posted by Sheppard 1600277998 (#1725)I'm not sure. I'm ISOing you as soon as I get back to my desk. Did you send me games? I don't have access to my notes on my phone.
It seems like everyone else is also confused about this.
I think my takeaway right now is that we can't afford to send you to LYLO but idk what else to do.
Game 9 - Replaced in late Day 1, got killed Night 1, so probably not a great representation. I'll give two recent games from my homesite to compensate.
The Polka Heist
The Wire - Replaced in late Day 1 (replacing JaggedJimmyJay, coincidentally)
Season 6, Game 3
Sorry to have to go back so far for the mafia games. There's not a lot for me to choose from. Links on The Syndicate go directly to my ISO so you don't have to try to figure out how to navigate the page while you're there. MU links are just to game threads.
Have played with the following players on a number of occasions (ranked by familiarity):
JaggedJimmyJay, Jackofhearts, Dyslexicon, Master Radishes, Michelle
Have played with 1-2 times:
Hally (t/t), SPF (t/t), Phighter (t/t), Arete (t/t)
This is my first time playing with everyone else.

I dont feel any desperation in any direction, because like, I think my solve is solid rn and I feel like either way we're on our way to solving this. Part of me wants to flip as well because then we have a confirmed townies approach to the game to go after (because ppl are very good at looking at dead villagers lel) and also because I'm going to be up for discussion as a good alternative until I actually do get yeeted, which is bad for town.Originally Posted by Sheppard 1600276394 (#1702)This desperation/emotion 12 hours later has such a similar tone to earlier. If someone walks away and comes back you would expect their tone to change more than this no?Originally Posted by roro__b 1600268792 (#1578)I've skimmed through from where I left off last night. A few comments because something is seriously off here.
@Phighter and @Sheppard. Please, don't give any weight to my $%#! yesterday. It's not deliberate ate. It's a consequence of spending like every hour since this game started in thread, except for when I've been asleep. Phi, you say you're a theater minor. You know that week where you do the same show over and over again, and live in a bubble with the same people that you love but are starting to get on your nerves and VC, which makes you lose a grip of what's realistic and ordinary in the outside world? That's where I was at last night.
Another note which I feel is highly OT but should address because theres a life outside this game - I was never the perfect mod. I'm not the best person, I was $%#!posting and memeing and had close to my feelings in everything I did. I'm notn"better" nor even equally good as anyone else at keeping my emotions in check. I also dont think that's necessarily a good attribute for a mod. Idk why moderstorreads is even a thing tbh. It's how I am.
And tbh, I'd be way more controlled and calculated in thread if i were wolf.iId probably be emotional as often, but I'd know how to limit it off in a better way. I still had moments like this in sf1, but just dont use this to read me because it's not accurate whatever you conclude.
I also read through the isos of me. Cool takes, especially @Arete s conclusion. The way they're reading my posts is SEVERELY wrong. And the things they point out frankly makes me wonder if they linked the correct posts to comment on, or something. Maybe I'm just that bad at expressing myself.
And this part right here
Is such a misrep idk where to go with it. I've got my "seven". I've got my Poe. That's just, the order I'd want to approach it based on my thoughts of people. That's how I play the game, I make.a.poe and conclude $%#! after flips. The whole approach in that iso feels very off.
You also addressed me with this
P#375 'I'm going to throw out questions at everyone and I'm going to try to make people feel uncomfortable when we've got more to go on, because that's part of what made us struggle in that game.' - @roro__b how has that approach been reflected in your play? (like, obviously you've been asking people questions, but I feel like there's ?some sort of gap? between what you were describing and the actual substance of your questions)
I'm not sure I understand you here tbh. Do you really? Because literally all of last night was discussions about this exact thing for me?
And yeah, speaking of hedging. I've expressed frustration on how nobody is willing to take a stance on me despite most ppl not having been digging into my slot. At least this one qualifies as that. Good job I guess
And like, probably/hopefully the last time I address emotion. And this is directed at @Dyslexicon too, related tot his
And to me it's a bit like "Why?" Where does that get us? Why is it so hightened in feeling?
I'm an emotional person. Everything I do is heightened in feeling. Literally everything. If you're working in psych or whatever it is you're doing, you should realise that all of us are different. Like, it's really easy to find out that it's a trait I have regardless of alignment. Look at literally ANY of my games. I linked 6 of them, I can link you more if you want. I'm emotional when it comes to music, I was crying when sf1 ended, I am emotional and get upset about stuff in mod discussion on a daily basis, I dont go into debate for the same reason. I'm bad at hiding my emotions, its who I am. I dont get why you fail to see this and base a read off it. It makes me emotional
This is okay for now, I don't know if I buy it but like I said I'm hoping you and MR will self resolve or give me enough to have a really solid progression either at EOD or D2.

I'm paranoid someone is slipping by.This $%#! right here is exactly why I'm so paranoid about my townreads already.Originally Posted by Hally 1600278151 (#1727)i don’t want to be rude, but it’s slightly irritating to me that you would ask me this. i think i’ve been clear that i have spf, monkey and arete as my most confident town. i feel like you’re not reading my posts if you don’t know that
I just like. I'm fine with the scumreads, but this one was based in the iso, we havent talked at all this game, and when I approach them today it's like, their mind is set from post 1 and wouldnt really matter what i said and it's a bonked mindset for town to have. Theres not even enough there for a tunnel, and the scumread isnt even like.. its lacking so much substance for them to be that set and unwilling to value its legitimacy idk. I might be overreacting here too but its making me uncomfortable because either I die, claim smth, or this type of thing will remain
