I really don't like how all these games are making me just implicitly trust Kim. Someday she is drawing scum again in a game I'm in and I might not be prepared.

I didn't do anything with the PM that could not have been done by scum if they were given a town role PM (which is something I think should be standard practice). The fact that BS decided to townread me for it was a lucky shot on his part, because I absolutely would have asked that question if I was scum and had seen a sample town role PM that included the verbiage in question.

I probably actually will make it a point in future of wording my role PMs carefully so that that kind of thing becomes non-readable.

The term "angleshoot" seems inherently pejorative, so I'll drop it. But scum didn't get a town role PM.

I also think that in years past, using the wording of your role PM in any way, even if scum could have done the same thing, would have been called an "angleshoot," (and to the best of my recollection that was just considered clever play, the pejorative implication seems to have seeped in later as bad sportsmanship, which I don't intend). To affirm, I don't think you should not have done it. But I'm not sure it should have been possible to do. It's a result of the increasing complexity of games. In a super-simple set-up, that opening just couldn't have happened.

Just to be double-clear I'm not trying to diminish your victory with this point, we very very recently played a game where I caught Lecrae on a role PM language issue and I was damn proud of it, even if it could be defined as "angleshooting."

I don't know how you had Sjg as townlock. He was scummyscumscumy imo :D

To plagiarize myself from a couple games ago, sjg didn't just bus Keir if he was scum; he hijacked the bus, threw out the driver, took it off-roading, and hunted down his partner for no damn good reason.

Sjg doesn't just burn his partner out of the blue for absolutely no reason. He'll bus if it's necessary, but he's very aware that scum needs miskills to win. Bussing Keir at that time would have been a bad move for scum from a strategic perspective. He just wouldn't have done that.

Well I had 2 scum out of 3 in my poe, so I must be doing something right.

That was fun to follow. Shame on you all for ending it N1.

Oh that wasn't a barb, I legitimately have no idea. In the games that stick out to me personally as great victories, you were either the GM, on my team, or not playing.

Oh right, I also legit have no idea. I haven't been keeping score. I can remember a few games going either way against Harb over the years.

There was a spec-thread, Harb and I did quite a bit better there than we did in the real thread.

Speaking of private chats, I have to decline to make the scum chat public, sorry.
