So vote Zoomzip D3 and let's call it a day. Sorry ZZ.



This is like when the votes are tied between player X and player Y, and you change your vote from player Y to player Z, and you try to pretend that you haven’t in effect voted for player X.

You’ve done literally the opposite thing of what you’re supposed to do, Nanook. By voting for ZZ you are agreeing to a situation where you and your team loses 50% of the time. And it isn’t LYLO! You are “town” today but you were mafia on D1 and that’s the Nanook that will be lynched, and when he gets lynched YOU WILL BE THAT NANOOK. There is no town-aligned D4 Nanook in the scenario you’re agreeing to!

I mean, for me it's lynch you today or ZZ D3. Would you rather I vote for D4 Niakan? I'm cool with that option too.

Like, I’m having issues because I want to take an ethics charge seriously, but you are also in a pickle. So I don’t know if this is real or spin or a combo.

Like, I told you this was my plan D1. I was hoping for better odds but RNG said no. And I still don’t understand how shadow justifies the lylo mafia win con so I don’t want to go near it.

By doing this I am preserving this meta for towns in the future. We ask townies to do personally disadvantageous stuff for the good of the town al of the time. This is an extreme edge case but still follows.

Of course, nook and I could vote you... and that’s a 33/33/33 which isn’t awful, and you are out and I believe it. Is there enough time?

You want to punish ZZ for what you see as throwing? OK. Vote him, try to make it so he loses too. Maybe you can convince two more people to make that vote and execute him as scum so he loses the game too.

At this point, it is what it is. Throwing a hissy fit isn't gonna change that.

There's a day and a half left to deadline, I think.

D4 Niakan

I feel like this may be the only way he feels he can wave a white flag honorably?
