    My record ended up being abysmal. We had 4 rounds under the current TCG banlist and going into the final round I was 1-1-1 with my neutered ol' Salad Deck R1: 0-2 Faced a DinoThunder deck and got blew out of the water by both the Thunder deck and my own decks impotence. R2: 2-0 This was a strange one. The deck was Orcust... with a Pendulum engine? Dude swore it works but he bricked g1, unfortunately, I bricked as well so the game drug out until I managed to go for game with Fusion of Fire. G2 was goofy we hit time and I won by attacking over his Hieratic link that he left up 4 some reason. R3: 1-1-1 This was Pure Orcust which I should have beat if we hadn't hit time. I lost the die-roll and got blew out by his deck and mine own g1. G2 we ended up in a simplified game state we're we'd both exhausted our resources. 4 a long while I kept getting slowed down by Impermanence until I finally got the upper hand in resources and went 4 game. And finally, because of our prolonged g2 we went into time and drew in g3. R4: 0-2 Inspecter Boarder True Draco 2 Anti-meta 4 me. I could not play. Fun fact my opponent had gone 1-1-1 aswell. On the upside, I got this cool mat, 2 OTS packs, Lost Art Skill Drain, and I caught a game of (Exarion unfortunately) Goat Format afterward:

    but before i continue town please i NEED your help please explain to me on what planet people think Malcolm is the healer is this some kind of collective Sick Play im just too stupid to understand? my understanding of the chain of events that happened here was this: - (day 1) malcolm says "i really want to kill Solstice and Tyranno" - (night 1) solstice gets attacked - (day 2) Francis makes a post going "wow our healer sure made a great save last night" - (day 2) Malcolm posts , which i interpret as calling attention to it being a dumb post and francis attempting to call attention to himself for the NK i find myself fairly suspicious of malcolm, but everyone (pretended???) to write him off as confirmed town and i just do not understand it at all was this some Sick Plays where the entire game managed to collectively try to get a multiball faction to kill each other? at least i think Francis is town (but not the healer) for the first time in possibly the history of DGZ mafia

    TYRANNO WAS LYNCHED You are Laurie Forman! The town bike - everyone's had a ride... or in the words of Stephen Hyde "going where every man's gone before" YOU ARE ON TEAM BUZZKILL, YOU WIN WHEN ALL OTHER FACTIONS ARE DEAD. Once per night you can target a player and learn every player that targeted them

    If the day phase ends early on any day via majority vote there are no modkills. I was also not going to modkill anyone day 1 anyway but I was keeping that close to the chest As to whether there are modkills today, day phase is over at time of this post so I'll not be modkilling anyone just in the interest of not killing half the game. Population should be lower tomorrow and I will not be leniant then and activity modkills will be fully enforced. I may even up the quota limit based on how many modkills there would have been today JC is subbing in for Faint. I'll post the flip shortly was responding to this before the day even ended

    Time for my tradition of thoughts on everybody: 1: Scumwood: It goes without saying that your day 1 was amazing, and I do think taking out Jazz N2 and JC night 3 was the correct play. I started suspecting you near the end of day 2, (I thought if I was wrong on Soph you were most likely to be Malcolm’s partner) but the NK targets really solidified that for me. Congrats on the victory; it’s frustrating because I feel like if town got one more day we could have had it. 2: The Antagonist: You would be my MVP pick. By the final day you had completely lost pretty much all the suspicion on you, which is huge progress considering you were on the lynch block day 1. Francis on the other hand started out very strong but by the last day had most people scumreading him. I think this was a good game for you as you were in my townreads from the second half of day 2, and outside of broken you didn’t really have anyone pushing on you consistently. 3: BuildTheWalia: You’d be my LVP pick honestly. You missed quota both days you were alive and hardly gave out any reads. Your watcher ability would have been extremely beneficial, and the fact you were killed for basically not playing the game really hurt town. Try to be more active next time, and if you can’t then bow out and ask for a sub or don’t sign up in the first place. 4: TheGoldenTyranno: First off thanks for making so many people aware of this game. Secondly, your day 1 was bad. I’m not sure what happened with Jazz being awol like that and I feel for you trying to navigate the game mostly on your own, but look at how people caught you and learn from it. Also as scum (and especially considering you were already suspect due to going for francis) I think you should have had a vote out at EOD; putting one on antag or broken might have been enough to save you. 5: Jazz: Whether you truly forgot about the game or not that quota snipe was awful (and you still missed quota by one 10 word post regardless) but you looked like you were doing a decent job of convincing people you were town day 2. Losing tyranno day 1 was rough, but if you had been more active I think you could have prevented it. Neither of you had an EOD vote out day 1 if my memory serves correctly, but taking out BB or antag instead would have really helped you. Though if Francis’s team hadn’t killed you off I think you might have had a decent shot at making it to endgame. 6: Faint: Sorry for whatever happened that caused you to sub out of the game, but I think you played very well when you were in aside from missing quota day 2. I am happy you asked to sub out when you realized there’d be a conflict though as opposed to some other players who just missed quota for no reason. 7: JC: Thanks for subbing in; I’m sure trying to catch up on the game was a lot of work. Sorry you missed sign ups and couldn’t join outright. I think you put a lot of effort into the game and I’m happy to know you would have shared my thoughts on Francis had you lived. Also thanks for hosting the next one for everybody. 8: Malcolm: This is the worst game I’ve seen from you. Only 50% of your day 1 reads were accurate (right on tyranno and soph, wrong on me and faint). You missed jazz completely and didn’t go after francis or antag until the last day. The effort you put into this game outside of day 1’s EOD (though wrong, at least you were honestly trying) was not very good. I don’t know what happened this game, but it is kind of refreshing to see you are fallible. 9: Aurirevoir: This is only my second game with you, so I don’t have a lot to go off of. You were definitely a question mark for most of the game, but I’m not sure if that’s just because I’m not as familiar with reading you. Like broken I think you also ended up quota sniping with under an hour left in the day a couple times, but at least you made quota which is more than I can say for some other players. 10: Sophocles: Congrats on being pretty much the only one to see Malcolm as town from day 3 onwards. Otherwise I think most of your reads were way off, and as such this was not a great game for you. Though at least you never had quota issues, so thanks for that. Better luck next time. 11. Broken Brilliance: First off congratulations for being one of the few people giving reads in a game where most people were avoiding it and missing quota. Secondly congratulations for being pretty much the only one consistently going after antag. Waiting until about an hour before EOD to hit quota the first two days was a bit painful, but otherwise I’d say this was a very good game for you.

    I believe the bolded part of the first paragraph here was exactly my point. With Solstice, my thought process was, "Yes, I see why everyone is town reading this player. They could be a scum Serial Killer, but this lynch is not happening in 12,000 years. Multiple other players are more worthy of suspicion, so let's move on from Solstice and talk about other players. If we need to come back later because we have exhausted other reads, we can do that." Instead of this, you used the setup as an excuse to constantly generate suspicion against everyone. This is, from my point of view, a valid reason as to why it may have been possible for town to suspect you prior to day 4. Even if your argument is based in truth, your play in this particular game took it to an extreme. I have struggled a lot with making posts to the point and that effectively communicate my opinions. In the previous game, there were two "large" posts I made: one on page 14, where I laid out my case against Sophocles, and one on page 17, where I communicated which scum pairings I found to be the most likely at the current time. I have previously received criticism about typing long paragraphs, so both of those posts used bulleted lists with a couple of sentences of explanation. I can switch back to this kind of style if you think it makes more sense, but I don't understand how my points are getting lost when each bullet is in itself its own point. Could you provide me a specific example? I have some additional questions: (1) In the future, would it be better to combine related bullet points into one larger paragraph, multiple shorter paragraphs without a full line break between them, or as completely separate paragraphs with a line break? For example, in my post on page 14, I lay out that I think Soph is more likely than average to have targeted Solstice and that Soph is more likely than average to have targeted Jazz. These both have to do with trying to read into which members of the game were most likely to see Solstice and Jazz as threats. However, because I ordered my post chronologically, the point about Solstice came way before the point about Jazz. (2) Should I provide more words to fully explain my suspicions? When I say that Sophocles is suspicious for backtracking, I identify the player and the action, but do I need to explicitly say why backtracking is bad in this scenario and differentiate it from a town member that changed their opinion? Examples would be something like "not wanting to commit" or "trying not to draw attention." Is that level of information a waste of words, or is it something needed to get town on the same page and able to respond? (3) Lastly, when I am separating out my points into several paragraphs, would it be a boon or a bane to fully separate them out into individual posts? This would make it easier to quote individual arguments to respond to, and may "refresh" player engagement when they see that I have 3 relatively short or medium length posts rather than one incredibly long one. However, doing so does make the number of pages longer, and may cause players to be unwilling to go back and read through the thread. I do find it frustrating that I am not able to realize my reads directly into additional conversation. I often feel ignored in threads, regardless of whether I am correct or not. On top of that, it became a complete meme for me to make several large posts outlining everything I find during a thread only for actual town members (not just scum) to come in two pages later and say "JC is doing nothing so I'm suspicious." I feel as though I should be in a position to command town during a lot of games, while simultaneously failing to ever do so. I am often quickly and easily townread by other players, but those same players don't take me seriously. I am not saying I am a better player than anyone else (unless we're making a top 5 list), but I do feel I put in a lot more time to reread the thread, attempt to explore new avenues, and attempt to figure out when town is going down the wrong path with a mislynch. I want to more effectively translate that time spent into results in game. Would you say the posting style is the main thing holding me back, or are there other ways I should be making sure to focus on at the same time as this? Getting this feedback is valuable, and it makes me want to play in the next game instead of host. I'm still willing to host, though, especially since I feel I only really value the practice in improving my town game, so it's always a roll during sign-ups as to whether I'd actually enjoy playing or not. What are the odds that you think this section manages to revive itself for a 3rd or 4th game?

    I think people misinterpreted my play for half of day 1. i was pinging Solstice out -- not trying to policy lynch him. The only player i have ever policy lynched is Wunter and I will kill him every single chance i get. Once ppl got that, they realized oh shit he's trying to help us. I really should not have been scumread for that. In regards to me not townreading anyone, look I have made it clear i don't do it as either alignment unless I have very strong reasons to believe the person is town or I cannot lynch that person. In the latter case, they are usually getting nk'd very soon after. In terms of keeping lynch options open, it isn't my job to town read you. It's your job to make sure I do not kill you. Unfortunately, this setup just gave me every single excuse in the world to generate suspicion, but if you read my posts, you'll notice nothing i said was untrue. Towb made a lot of bad assumptions this game. Some happened to be right, while others were fatal (MYLO). JC, your in game posting would benefit tremendously from some self-editing. You bury a lot of decent points that can help town in a wall of text. No one -- myself included -- has the stamina to dissect your posts to find your points. Further posting a bunch of things to stimulate discussion is no different than me distracting town with game mechanics. Your posting needs to demonstrate your agenda to town. That means prioritization i.e making fewer, but stronger points. For example, this post, in comparison to your other posts, is very organizes and easy to read. There are paragraph breaks. Each paragraph makes a specific point. Others players can read and digest this easily. i was half-joking when I said I did not read them, but it was also to discredit your posts. I think the real slip with discussing game mechanics was I discussed the mechanics as if scum had perfect info when scum clearly did not have perfect info. Notice that no one ever countered me by saying, yes but the scum teams do not know who is on each team. I pre-empted that to a degree by bringing up Tyranno's soft, but it would have applied to a ton of my arguments. To the extent I brought up mechanics to defend myself or stop town from clearing themselves (safe claims), I would do that as either alignment because that is just pointing out bad assumptions. I can twist bad assumptions or bad logic to help town or hurt it depending on my alignment. The real issue here is town has to avoid making assumptions like that to get to the end result they want to reach because it just gives scum fodder to create confusion. I won't lie I was trying to keep Malcolm alive for the first two days because we thought he was Tyranno's partner. He hard defended Tyranno day 1, claimed healer day 2, and his reads were so off base that I figured he was trying to get a mislynch. When we realized he was inactive town after killing Jazz, we realized we could end the game with him. However, Solstice not counterclaiming him there, and, consequently, delaying town figuring out the setup the additional day ultimately was the issue because it gave Malcolm's fake healer claim plausibility because when you did figure out the setup, you assumed he was bp doing that to take a bullet.That confusion alone, plus the train of walia over Soph was more than enough reason not to go for him. If Solstice goes after him on day 2, at worst you eliminate a suspicious target and get full knowledge of the setup. At best, Malcolm was scum and you end him. Solstice: If someone claims or implies somthing you know is bullshit, you don't leave it ambiguous. You call them out on it. For everyone who didn't buy Malcolm's claim, i am just gonna ask: Who died that day? Walia. Second question, did scum lead the lynch on Walia? Nope. Regardless of what you claim ppl thought, no one was gonna risk killing Malcolm there. That's why you call Malcolm on that.

    Town wins as a team and loses as a team. It's the same deal for scum. The difference is it's easier for scum to work as a team because we have information. Malcolm was the final lynch and his playstyle almost constantly makes him a question mark, but he wasn't the reason that game was lost. If I am putting the lost one any one player, it would probably be Walia. Knowing what his role was, Walia really needed to step up and take control of town. He was watcher with a BP clause, which means, as town, you sbould have no questions about Walia's alignment.

    I don't think "wow malcolm didnt literally solve the game for us day 1" as a valid reason for the loss. Instead, let's look at what we may have missed. Francis, note that the thread is over, so I am not looking to argue with you about whether your play was perfect or not. You are free to disagree with some points, but instead of just going "no u", how about you tell us what you think would have been a better way to identify you, if not by these points. Francis People started suspecting Francis on the last day, but it was a day too late. I'll be completely honest--I gave him a pass on the first day because I simply didn't evaluate his posts critically. I came into the thread with a positive impression, and I was unwilling to apply the extra effort to take a closer look. I think Solstice had one good point, which was that Francis tried very hard to keep all avenues of lynching open. My playstyle is very "town read" oriented, but I can get why Francis may theoretically not like them a lot. However, some players are vastly more lynchable than others, and admitting that someone is not worth considering lynching is basically what a town read is. People can change a town read to a scum read. It's a semantics argument at that point. Overall, Francis refusing to agree that anyone was more likely town than not after 3 to 4 day phases is suspicious. The next thing is that Francis had some clearly anti-town behaviour in regards to my personal play. He admitted to not reading my posts at one point, and Francis is a diligent enough member to do the work to hunt scum. Not reading is a sign that what I say doesn't matter, because he already knows the scum team. Furthermore, he later characterized my attempts to progress the game state as "scattershotting everyone" despite me making it abundantly clear I wanted to lynch Malcolm. Considering other avenues is not praying and spraying. I wanted people to challenge my opinions and to generate discussion, but most people aren't willing to reread the thread every time I make a big post to see where I am coming from, so I understand why it can be frustrating to play with me. Francis also did a good job of making us waste time and thought process on mechanics and flavour. Multiple players argued with him over things like "should scum make a NK if they know the town is bulletproof?" and that distracts people who already make limited posts from spending their time trying to win the game. The biggest issue, though, I think had to do with his attitude towards Solstice in regards to Malcolm. Francis made a big deal out of "why didn't you CC him? it would have been a guaranteed lynch! no balls! #fucksolstice"...while simultaneously NOT VOTING FOR MALCOLM. It was a disingenuous rhetoric that I missed. Thinking Malcolm was softing healer to draw a NK is OK. Thinking Malcolm was full of garbage and should die is OK. Thinking Malcolm was softing healer to draw a NK while also criticising players for not doing more to get Malcolm killed is NOT OK. Antag Antag flew under the radar. When I did my big analysis, I came up with no possible partners for Antag...except for Scumwood. At the time, I didn't want to consider Francis being scum, but that was entirely due to laziness on my part, which very well could be the reason we lost the game. I'll take the blame for that. Had I survived the night, I was going to post the scum team as Malcolm/Auri or Antag/Scumwood (or maybe Scumwood/Malcolm as well). Without tunnel goggles, I can see why Malcolm almost definitely wasn't scum, but I have a hard time ever believing Malcolm because he simply doesn't talk. I get not wanting to die all the time, and the possibility of risking getting lynched because "wow malcolm is playing differently", but I think Malcolm posting and explaining where he gets his reads from would be one of the better long-term changes to the section, assuming it did actually make a revival. I think the major thing here, like with Francis, is Antag pushing hard to keep Solstice open as a lynch possibility. A Serial Killer is a possibility, sure, but it is unlikely enough given the set up literally being "the parents" and the multiball nature. Apart from that, I think it was a solid game. Definitely interested in hearing thoughts from other people, because I don't think we do enough to try and improve.

    This. I didnt realize the night was 16 hrs and saw antag made a submission so i figures i could wait. The no kill probably helped us and we considered da you n2 to hide kp but there was no guarantee the other faction would go after you again. i cant speak for Jazz but you were probably targeted for hammering Tyranno. That vote was pretty town and would be hard to argue against. Like I said, the only argument against you was multi-ball. Biggest advantage for scum this game was getting a grasp of the setup early. Shout out to antag for discovering the setup. We knew malcolm was not a healer and knew he was just goving town rope to hang himself with. We thought he did this as a scum play, but either way it focused town in the wrong direction .

    I was trying to BAIT Malcolm into claiming he healed me. Which YOU shot down with fire and brimestone. That would have locked Malcolm into a healer claim. I would claim 1 shot bulletproof which WOULDN'T give away that I could survive the NK again. At which point our ACTUALLY healer (who clearly didn't heal me, because everyone should realize healing me N1 is retarded) would realize this and therefore realize Malcolm must be scum. If for some reason people STILL didn't believe me about Malcolm being full of shit, the real healer could counter claim. The reason Faint was at the top of my town list yesterday was because HE CALLED BULLSHIT ON MALCOLM'S SOFT leading me to think he was the actual healer and KNEW Malcolm was bullshitting. Sorry for trying to make a play you didn't like.

    I'd rather kill someone who I actively think is scum than a question mark. Giving a reads list is almost meaningless if you don't back up your opinions, it's just throwing out words.

    Only things we know 100% are Solistice was targeted for the nk and the healer saved him (note that this does not mean he is town because of multi-ball). All we know is that he was threatening one faction. That being said, very likely town even if this is multiball because multiball means smaller numbers. Anyone who townread Tyranno yesterday needs to die.

    WOW. Don't think I've ever been targeted for a NK without being a claimed PR before. I'm so happy. Thanks for the save, though I have no idea why anybody would pick me. I have to leave for work soon and I’ll be gone for most of the day, but I was combing over the thread after Tyranno’s flip and wanted to give my thoughts before heading out. I still think Malcolm is scum.The reads he provided have me, tyranno, and faint as scum and soph as town. (The NK should prove I'm town to you.) Of his scum reads he chose to vote me, even over tyranno who is now confirmed scum. This is a huge red flag. Jazz is a close second place on my hit list. Showing up to snipe quota is a HUGE red flag, and I don’t by the bit about “forgetting the game existed”. I am aware Broken (and to a lesser extent Malcolm, though I scumread him regardless) did this as well, but he showed up with more time left before EOD and this is more in character for him than it is for Jazz. Also the way Tyranno’s flip was worded (when all other factions are dead) makes me think we’re playing multi-ball due to this part of the OP: the parents and the buzzkills want to shut this shit down, so we'll have to vote em out of the game”. Anyway I've got to head out, see you all when I get back.

    Gonna be honest here, I don't really remember seeing Tyranno posts when I backread which is why I didn't comment on him.
