My thoughts on gogtrial:
DID GOGTRIAL WANT TO START AN ARGUMENT?
It seemed like an odd thing to do. I'd expect 'push someone to get a reaction' but 'deliberately fake an argument' seemed more problematic than beneficial.
I wondered did he make up the argument explanation after the fact because he thought he pushed Catte too much?
But, no, when he explained about how an argument would get reactions from a bunch of people rather than just one. I guess it might make sense.
YES. gogtrial probably wanted to start an argument.
DID GOGTRIAL WANT ME TO THINK HE IS TOWN?
What do you think? Was this town-gogtrial, or devious anti-town-gogtrial?
I read a sort of smugness into this - like a "now I've explained it to you can you really think I might be scum?"
I was thinking he probably was town after the explanation, and I was ready to concede that, yeah okay as always you are the t0wnist, but then I thought "WHAT IF this is the first mafia game where gogtrial is scum and I give him a town read at the first opportunity I will go down in history as a big ol' blockhead."
and THEN I had the idea that ScumGogtrial was giving me an oppotunity: "town or scum, dear Joe?" he asks seductively, but inside his brain he's hoping "don't let me down my bro. The solution is in your grasp!"
Well turns out he just wanted me to say a whole bunch of nonsense that is fairly incomprehensible to everyone but me.
NO, gogtrial did not want me to think he was town. Nor want me to scum-read him. ("dance monkey!" "but have you considered this?" "BAD MONKEY! I VOTE!")
In conclusion - at the risk of seeming like a big ol' blockhead I'm giving gogtrial a town lean. BUT I would like to think that he could do this as mafia. If he ever draws mafia.
TRENT APPEARS TO BE INVENTING STATISTICS: IS THAT A SCUM INDICATOR
probs not? really. It was intriguing but thinking about it it probs doesn't mean much.
I would like him to pop the question though. I'm quite giddy with anticipation.
