No-one said they targeted GameRager.
No, but it's possible I was Rwarehall's protection choice before he died.
Hmm, a wagon's forming on me, with GR joining in for the "claim train."
Well the name rhymed and fit what we seem to be doing this "day".....i.e. getting unconfirmed players close to lynch so they'll claim or we lynch them. :)
OK. Revealing my role won't help Town, and won't save me from getting lynched instead of someone who is, you know, actually scummy. But if you insist to know, I need 5 players to confirm they want to know my role. Just quote this post and reply with a yes.
Thing is, it could help.....as in if you are town and you avoid getting lynched "today" then you could either be one more person we have to act as a "buffer"(along with all the other lock or near-lock town, of course) against future NKs, and/or(if you are town, don't get lynched, and don't get NKd) then you'd be one more vote we could bring to bear against the actual scum. So saying that I then say this: Once you get perhaps 1 more vote(I thought my vote would put you closer to "claim range"...my mistake) I think that YES, you should claim. I say this, btw, as we have only around 24 IRL hours to go till deadline and need to know if we should change course to someone else or not while we have time to do so.
: Clearly you wish to reveal your true name for the fun of it, not for tactical reasons :D
We are winning this but still we might lose. Why give away even the tiniest edge?
Because I play MAINLY for fun.....not to just win. To me, playing just to win/weighing everything at every single juncture/decision point so carefully(Like some sort or robot or[as the new generation says] an NPC running on programming with seemingly little room for doing anything fun or different) is very boring and un-fun, so I like to do things that aren't the optimal choice (yet won't vastly negatively affect my team, so as to be a good sport/etc) at some junctures/points TO have that desired fun.
In summary, my reason for doing so is like that of others that dislike meta play(in both this game and prior ones)....to them, playing in such a way is game breaking and/or boring....well to me, playing the "most town" or "most optimal" way(according to the wiki, veteran players, etc) is boring as well many times, so I go a different route sometimes. :) (@OP: Above bolded bit is NOT a vote)
Carradice: I get your point, but at that time Micro had less obvious crumbs set up, hadn't cleared several town/likely town, and hadn't helped lynch a scum as I did.....i.e. he was more of an uncertain variable(until he was proven town by OP).
About the role assigned to Percy, it was argued to death and it was accurate according to HP lore and yogs pushed heavily against it and time proved the assumption to be true and yogs lying, and you know all that and now you will say that you have bad memory. Ah, the fun you get ;-)
In my case if I did drop a name it wouldn't be called as much into doubt, most likely, as most seem to have me as near certain town. Also being near-lock town I am likely on scum's short list of possible NKs anyways, and as such I want to reveal such MYSELF & have some fun with it before a possible NK against me that cannot be protected. :)
(In case any town wonder, the above is just fluff posting and not a clue filled link like in the past :D)
Yes, you did. As Carradice just pointed out. Are you now saying, that you didn't protect GR?
I think Joe meant they see their protection of me as just that: A PROTECTION, not a TARGETING(even though it is technically a targeting)....of course yes, it could also have been a "flub"/derp on their part & they could be scum.
I wouldn't assume GR was the target - we had no kill on Night 2 either, so there's some other element in play also.
With how loud(not the mafia term) I was prior to that, it was very likely all but certain that scum would've assumed I was a regular cop and tried getting rid of me as a result. Also as Lift said prior to this post of yours, scum likely wouldn't pass on a NK chance given their current status.
(As for N2, what if only one scum can make the NK on a rotating basis and SPF was the one slotted for that "night" before he got killed off?
JoeSapphire: Scum usually(if competent scum)go after either the town most likely to cause the most chaos among the other town(if they are the NK) OR they go after the biggest threat/likely threat to them.
That you were working with the assumption that GameRager was targeted made me think you knew that he was.
To me, this is just Lift stating common sense and less AI.
When he wrote that "revealing my role won't save me from getting lynched" I saw it implied that he either is a vanilla townie or a weak PR that Town would consider an acceptable loss.
That could be what they meant.....but even if so it's better they claim at some point so we can change course if needed while there's still time to do so & so we can see if any other town counter it.
how did you know, before or without crediting joe's claim, that GR had been protected? I personally see no reason anyone could have known GR was the target. I was (am) an equally valid target.
Maybe, but remember....I had more or less come out as cop by that point, so scum likely would've wanted to get rid of a potential investigative role(especially one that had ferreted out a scum) over yourself: a "mere" confirmed town with no other real powers to speak of. :)
(Of course it's likely they'd/they will come after all of us in time, one by one, as long as they have/had NKs)
Carradice saw GR as maybe a cop, but if I had payed any attention to the breadcrumbs i would have seen it as a watcher with one ability left.
Thing is, I ALSO crumbed the word COP(in video and text form) a few times before that...so with ALL the crumbs or most of them it'd be easy to puzzle out my role being cop rather than watcher. :)
Microfish_1: Lets put the kettle on, and make a pot of tea, for some tea would fit that spot in my tum or loose this knot!
So you're going on a smaller wagon when we haven't even gotten this one to claim yet? Yer call, but we DO only have so many hours left to go(IRL time) till deadline, so I hope you know what you're doing and the wagon builds fast enough on someone(of the main wagons) so we can avoid the nolynch.
Again, revealing my role won't help Town and won't save me from a lynch. In fact, Joppo's assessment of my post is spot on, and I'm already afraid that scum no longer have me on the list of future nightkillls. So I'm naturally not going to claim unless a good chunk of players ask for it.
It would(even if vanilla yet believable) allow us to pick a new main suspect from the pool of choices before deadline comes too close, and possibly allow any town that have the name you claim(if you're scum) to counter....so yes, it likely could help...though it's up to you at this point.
(Though I still think you should claim eventually, as per my prior reply to this
Done to post 1173.....will post more as soon as I can write such replies up, and if someone would be so kind as to provide a bump
