Re: [game] Newbie F11 Take 2

said by Dunga Bee:

Modem's smart comment about no comment unless he is on to something confirms he is laying in the weeds watching us lynch one another.

Vote Modem

Unfortunately it doesn't confirm anything, as our cop never (presumably) got any good investigations off before he was whacked. However, it's my best lead.

It all comes down to Meng--if he makes the wrong vote the game ends now. If he lynches the mafia, we'll be LoL again tomorrow.

I really can't get a good read on you since Drew doesn't have very strong meta signatures, and I'm not sure how much he's influencing you, but I am betting on the PM/Modem angle--one votes in each lynch, the other attempts to lurk through the game.

I mean, OOPS, I should have PM'd this since Dunga and I are clearly the mafia.

KrisN: You seem to have been given the role of my anti-mentor since you slam most things I do.

I am a noob at this and my be premature voting (I hope it does not turn out to be a recurring issue..LOL). Anyway. When I say confirms, I suppose it means it confirms that it is the best option I can find and with so little game experience, I am trying to find my way and root out the bad guys.

I might be contributing to the town downfall by acting too much on hunches but that is the only way for me to play with zero knowledge of tendencies of anyone.

I am a little concerned about you too with your bashing of me but I still think inactivity ~= scum. Maybe in later games I'll learn otherwise but that's how I am going to roll for now.

Excuse any typos or other crap a I am posting from my phone.

Men's the wild card. He's "checked in" three times and not posted anything since page 1 (100ppp) IIRC. He's been a complete no show. The more you post the stronger I feel about you. Here's how it is.

It just so happens it is you and dunga.

If it was you and modem, that'd be a horrible play and he'd never go along with it.

If it was you and men, he'd have given up the lay-low and hammered by now, unless you're waiting with baited breath for him to come out of whatever coma he's in and finish modem off.

The only other option are it's modem and men and modem's gotten really unlucky with an awol partner.

I am confused. I thought the lay low was a mafia tactic. Now You are saying the more you chat the more suspect you are.

Confused so I choose

unvote

Activity as an indicator of affiliation is hit or miss, but can be used in conjunction with anything from concrete evidence to a gut feeling to help form an opinion. When mafia are laying low, they won't be the first vote. They won't be the first to accuse someone of anything unless there's a blatant hole they can jump on. They vote on an L3 or L2 to avoid being the hammer. They wait until someone makes a point and then "Yeah, what about that!?" They still post occasionally to keep up pretenses, but you don't see their names 20 times on a page.

Modem's been lurking. He's not posting a lot, but he's still making appearances. That's sketchy at times. Men has been straight up absent. Completely dropping off the grid is conspicuous, so people don't normally do that.

Unvoting with only a little pressure on you is also conspicuous, but would be an odd move if it really was you and krisn. (Nice touch, drew.)

You make some good points, but it could be FUD at LoL. My vote stays on Modem for now. I definitely want to hear from Meng.

Men isn't one of the mafia and I'll tell you why.

A lone mafia in a lol won't just throw in a vote by himself if his partner is alive. Any pursuit of men is a distraction, as far as I'm concerned.

Perceived strategy aside, I removed my vote based on your comments that activity can look suspicious. In the few games I lurked on, it seemed pretty universal that inactivity (as long as someone was getting lynched) was a good play for mafia since it kept them out of the spotlight.

With that in mind, when I had little else to go on, I looked for those that were totally MIA or very inactive and looked for anything I could find that was odd about them.

Modem's late game participation looks scummy to me based on how I'd probably play if I were in his shoes.

But, I am happy for now to sit and spin because I'd rather do nothing than lynch the wrong person and lose.

ekster missed my unvote before so:

UNVOTE
