I’m still trying to decide if the setup is 9-3 or something else. I keep coming back to 9-3 feels right to me, 9-2-1 and 8-3-1 do not. If we have indies, it might be 8-2-1-1, with one indie that can win with town, and one that can’t. If we have indies, I can make an argument for anyone, with Mark, MoA, LaserGuy being strongest (in that order). I’m not really interested in devoting my limited time to it now though, as I think we need to focus on mafia, and the indie discussion is a distraction.

What are your reasons for the FoS? Is the moody FoS because of the cop results as you discussed in this post
? Why SuicideJunkie?
Mark, can you make some reads independent of any cop results, just based on player content? Or at the very least, can you make an ordered list today, and do reads as you have time, perhaps focusing on your scum picks first?

+1, QFT, grumble grumble.

Counting posts is fast, and easier to do often. I think it just seems like a lot because I usually only post at night (as opposed to throughout the day). When I did more, it was intentional, to prod the lurkers.

I’m fine with claiming tomorrow, I’ll even claim first if that is the general consensus. I agree SuicideJunkie should probably claim today. Vote: SuicideJunkie
Reasons: D1 there were a few minor odd things, like it seems he was being intentionally ambiguous about his mafia experience at first, and about how many games he had read (according to this post
, 3-5 recent games, later amended in this post
to include the DS9 Secret Santa game from 2013). There is also the auto-meta-read of me, which in the past would have been highly suspicious and I’ve ranted in detail and at length about it in previous games (insert a dozen examples, available upon request). This would actually make sense if SJ had been a long-time lurker, and had read all the 2017 games, especially Secret Santa 2017. But he claims he’s only read a few games from the past year, and as I pointed out, my record this year is only about 50-50, so my meta hasn’t been the topic of discussion that it has been previously (note: in the five most recent games, I was town in 1, scum in 2, and didn’t play 2). So where did this read come from?
Suspicious posts on D2: attributing no NK to mafia withholding and some odd posts re Madge, see my reactions to both here
. Also note decreased post count on D2 (and now on D3), as previously stated I believe that on D2 the mafia team thought Sabrar has a post restriction, and was keeping their post counts low.
I’ve already pointed out SuicideJunkie’s focus on game mechanics on D1 and D2 (and see this post
where I question his misunderstanding how Secret Santa is set up because of his focus on mechanics). See also here
where I warn him that he is dangerously close to active lurking. There is a shift away from discussion of game mechanics on D3, could it be because of my prodding? I am skeptical because he still doesn’t have a lot of analysis or reads, so the shift may just be because he no longer has wam’s cop result to analyze, and shift discussion focus to finding scum in BoomFrog/bessie/LaserGuy.
SuicideJunkie, you still need to answer this
