Mafia 31: Deja Vu
This thread is for participants of Mafia 31 only.
Page 73 of 73
Okay. After my little game there I am fairly certain that rdrivera and Kench are scum.
They were the only two not to take a wagon because doing so would throw the tie. And neither wanted to be directly responsible for a town lynch. Further I think MM being willing to vote ghug is more indicative of his townness.

If my logic is true
Remaining scum are:
@Prado I tied it because I felt seeing how the multiple wagons reduced or didn't reduce once people's votes were tie breakers would be more indicative of their preferences, this giving us more information.

I'm pretty sure Byron was trying to goad scum into trying to save Sei. Sadly Sei was town and the only fish that bit got scanned inno, so I'm not sure there's much to read out of it.

Is Vash faking not knowing anything about the nightkills? If it's real, I think that makes him town, but he's never been *that* lazy, and he ignored evidence that his idea was unfounded.
(Alternatively if ghug is scum, which I doubt, then the scum reads change slightly to include Prado, snowy and ghug) the real test is going to be how these two different groups behave tonight and then into tomorrow.

Byron, Kench voted on a main wagon and then only left so it wouldn't tie. It doesn't really parallel rd's main wagon avoidance.

I feel like snowy has to be scum now. Let's get Rivera first though.
I agree with you ghug. But I need to fill in a 3rd spot and Kench fits my bill better than most others.

So, tomorrow is MYLO, which means we really need to get it right.

Hunter killing scum means that we get another lynch, but the hunter is better off claiming if it looks like they're gonna be lynched than letting himself be lynched and shooting for it. It's basically a confirmable role, because scum counterclaiming means they die either way.
So I didn't know what a hunter was... so I went back to the sign up and read through. If the hunter reveals them self and are then NK then their power is moot or am I misunderstanding the rules? If a NK causes the hunters power to go into effect then it clearly makes sense for them to come out in D6 but if not then shouldn't they stay concealed?? I'm just saying if I read the start right then we only get that PRs benefit if they are lynched. So we HAVE to lose a town to kill a scum.

I think what I'm suggesting is it benefits scum more to finding the Hunter?
@ghug can you explain your logic just a bit more
ghug (4187 D (B))

Mislynch -> Lose

There's also LYLO, which is lynch or lose, and makes a little more sense. Basically the difference is that in MYLO we don't lose if we no lynch, but the mafia can just no kill if we no lynch, which doesn't get us anywhere.
ghug (4187 D (B))
11:59 PM UTC
You've got it right. I'm saying the hunter should claim only if he's going to be lynched, cause then we've got a clear instead of a dead person, the mafia have to kill them at night, and we can still lynch, which gives us the same kill the hunter dying would give.

If we lynch two scum correctly, the hunter should just claim right away on the third day, because it'll mean three to choose from instead of four.
Okay I was interpreting that to mean the hunter should claim now which to me really didn't make sense and I wanted to make sure I voiced that before the hunter also misunderstood and posted. Not that I think anyone here is dumb except for you ghug. But I know we are encroaching on a loss for town if we keep making mistakes

Byron's reading skills are a perfect example of why natively speaking English is irrelevant.
First sorry for being away at EOD, but I was really busy at work and then I have to do a long accountability meeting of the tournament I held on the weekend.

Snowy and Ghug should be happy on lynching another town. Great job, you are almost winning and probably deserve the win. I don´t know who the third scum member is, but I think it´s between Vash (who could be bussing Ghug with a complete bullshit argument about the nks) or Kench (that last minute vote on me is something I expect a scum who don´t want to get involved in a town lynch do).

Who looks at the EoD I saw and judges that as Kench's motivation?
@ghug how does cb not understanding something have anything to do with the argument for native speakers? Do you really feel the need to defend your EoD decision in such a backhanded manner?
@Kench I would like to hear your perspective of EoD, because of your strange voting. I would prefer it before someone starts a wagon for you.
ghug (4187 D (B))
04:23 AM UTC
I don't need to defend my EoD decision:
a) It's over.
b) He was scummy as fuck and I stand by it fully.

I'm just making jokes about Byron's shittastic reading comprehension.
It is not over just like that. Are you trying to tell me that you are such a dunce to think that how you conduct yourself the day before will not affect current reads? You were a figurehead for the sei wagon and all you backed it by was his wanting to delay the vote for the doc claims and his "being bad under pressure"
Which was easily explained by his nonnative speaking. It just took him more sentences than average to get his points out there. So it just seemed like he was stalling and acting scummy. You, ghug never addressed the possibility at EoD or before of him having a reason for seeming a bit bad under pressure.
ghug (4187 D (B))

It had nothing to do with nonnative speaking. Guak isn't a native English speaker. Nor is rd. Or xorxes, though he's not in this game, or ND despite the fact that he doesn't speak any other languages. I'm used to playing with people who don't speak English natively, and it's one of the reasons I don't focus on the minutia of wording. He was defensive at a macro level day two. Misunderstanding of concepts like "townclear" can be attributed to nonnative speaking. Waffling back and forth repeatedly on what you're claiming you meant can't. Trying to push the vote off of ND all day can't either, to the point that I didn't and still don't see you and Kench even trying to excuse it away with the language barrier. The dude was scummy.

I was wrong, it sucks, and if y'all want to waste what might be our last day accusing me of being scum for being outspokenly wrong, go ahead. I get it. But I'm not gonna pretend it was as simple a misunderstanding as a language barrier, I'm not gonna waste my own time dwelling on it when we absolutely need to catch scum right now, and I not going to let you act all high and mighty for getting it right when you couldn't be bothered to talk all weekend or meaningfully push a lynch on any scumread of your own.

Well that's a shitstorm and a half to wake up to.

@Ghug, we're making a bigger deal of this whole "native English" thing than necessary. I explained that my understanding of the way Sei had been acting was not all that scummy, just a little difficult to understand. Clearly, he wasn't that scummy, though I get it if people were voting for him for other reasons - I just wasn't feeling them, though, as I've said before, I am rapidly discovering that I have really no feel for this game whatsoever.

I voted for Rdr, both times, because I felt that, of the options in front of me, he was one that had come closest to being finished off, before miraculously disappearing when other stuff came up (most of which has been crap).

It is also the case that I had been unable to get on Mafia most of the weekend (for which I apologise), which added to my realisation that I just don't have the time to commit to a game like this. It wasn't something I could know until I'd tried it, but there we go. I came on and made my reads and voted because I needed to, with less than an hour until the deadline.

With only a few minutes to go, I voted for Sei because, between him and Ghug, I thought he was more likely. However, I then looked at the tracker and realised that I had effectively tied the vote - which it has been made abundantly clear would be a worse outcome at this stage - so I hopped back off, fairly straight away. Voting for rdr might have been "pointless" at this stage, but the alternatives were worse as far as I was concerned. And after joining the Ika wagon in D1 despite not having any sort of read on him, I decided that at least this time I should try and vote what makes sense to me, regardless of the wagon.

No Build phase
Hey guys. I'm a new user and I'm playing a game with friend (ID is 206642) and I'm wondering if there is a bug or a rule we missed. I'm playing as Germany and I have 6 supply centers, 5 units and no build phase. I'm also curious if the game didn't register a capture of a supply center. I was in Warsaw and then took Moscow the next turn. I captured Moscow and not Warsaw. Can a vet help out some newbies?

Study music recommendations
Hey guys I'd appreciate it if you could recommend music that's helpful for studying. I ( like many) find it difficult to concentrate on immediate concerns like getting physics homework out of the way or starting a paper on whatever subject. I've tried classical music and it helps though some classical music I imagine is better than others for this. If you can recommend artists I'd appreciate it.
