My point about Telleo's "mistake" wasn't that she was a dumb scum for it, but in fact the opposite. She made the decision knowing that all experienced players would both quickly see how problematic her vote was, but also that she's too smart of a player to make that mistake as scum. That's why she deliberately chose to do it. So I'm not saying Telleo is a dumb player, I'm saying she's so smart that she made what looks like the dumbest move actually be one of the smartest moves.

As for me just going with the town, that's just not true here. I provided my reasons for why I'm voting Telleo. If you think me going with town makes me scum, then vote me off. If you think me voting with town makes the town worse/less likely to win, then vote for me if you're also town. But if you're going to bitch about me voting with the town but then not do anything about it and put me in an even bigger position to do more damage in the future, then that seems pretty scummy.


im aware but she has played with me before and the game we played in I made it clear that a dumb decision is a scummy decision I never think scum is to dumb (or as you are saying brilliant) to pull off a dumb move especially telleo id be the first one to call that out if I thought that were a chance...
I'm me I'm odd learn to deal with it... all geniuses' are crazy...

I still don't get why you're not voting against me though.

Like, did you town read EM that strongly? I have an issue there. I mean, I get that self-preservation is overrated, but only when there is a comparable town read on the board. I never got the sense you town read EM, you certainly didn;t defend him, and yet as he became plausible you seems to want to throw yourself on the fire. That seems, and I realize that this is ZoomZip who notoriously doesn't self-defend as town saying this, that seem weird dude.

I actually had EM as 50% likely to be scum. Called one scum in EM/RS but not both. Two things concerned me. First, the actual votes against EM, apart from dwilt, were low-conviction and soft. In that environment it seemed like scum had a lot of slack to push the lynch they wanted. Second, if EM was indeed town (which I still figured to be about 50% likely), then it looked to me like we were looking at an auto-loss: with EM's flip not prompting much in the way of re-examination because it was such a low-conviction lynch in the first place, Telleo would continue howling for my blood and I figured I looked super likely to go down next after a townie EM flip. My flip would also push us closer to the edge, but I figured it would both shed more clarity on the game-state and also be far more likely to push the remaining town into a hard re-set. Basically if I were going to be mislynched anyway, I thought it best that that be done while it wasn't the town's last chance.

But would our chances of winning on Day Three be higher or lower than 50/50 in your view after an EM lynch?


If EM flipped town? I was looking at that prospect as basically an auto-loss. So, lower. Perhaps I'm not following you?

No, if you flipped town would the town's chances of winning be better than the 50/50 of taking out EM there and then?

So two things on that. First, the 50/50 thing comes from a stated read much earlier in the day that I believed there was scum in EM and Red Sun, but almost certainly not both. Toward EOD, with half-hearted votes against EM piling up, EM looked better to me simply by merit of the case against him looking weak and rushed.

Second, EM flipping scum is also not an equivalent measurement to a win or a loss. It's good and gets us partway there, but town can still lose after EM flipping scum.

Taken together, if I was going to be next on the docket anyway, yeah I think the best outcome for the town is mislynching me while there's a margin of error in which to do so.

I hate Telleo not being here. And not even indicating she was Peacing out. I am sad about this.

Yeah. This isn't normally the time of day she posts, though, so I wasn't really expecting her to come back before deadline, which is why I speculated on that. Might see a burst of activity right before deadline, so I'm trying to keep an eye out for that?

I’m gonna try and monitor as I pack.

Just, if she’s scum I expect her to go down spitting nails. And if town I definitely expect righteous fire, even if misguided. But this is the way the Telleo ends,
