I have a lot of grievances with this game, but I've aired most of them out to the appropriate sources already so I don't feel the need to repeat them here. Safe to say, this was one of the most frustrating games I've ever played.

Kudos to DCPat for sticking it out til the end. He had an uphill battle there, and that's not easy to deal with.

Anyhow, I'll definitely play another game soon, as I want to get in one more before I have to go back to school in February/March.

From the middle of D3 I suspected Gir and Gorlak were masons after looking at vote patterns, some time later in the game Gorlak asked Gir something about sharing a secret chat with Faddy and that become a confirmation on my mind lol

Thank you for running the game cabot.

Thanks everyone for participating!

And a really big thank you at malus TheChuggernaut Lone_Prodigy Swamped and Brazil for subbing in when needed. All of you are great <3
Happy to “help”!

Also Brazil.
Sorry you had to catch up only for only one day phase.
Nah, man. I knew what I signed up for, haha. Letting someone be modkilled would’ve sucked. And it’s not even like you got caught after slipping or anything like that, you weren’t even here when focus switched over to you.

If I learned anything from this game, it's that I'm really only good at looking at hard data like votes and flips but suck at interpreting what people are actually saying. At one point I was even considering training a neural network on voting data from past games to see if it could come up with a useful pattern.
Also social anxiety sucks. The amount of posts I had written out but scrapped is too damn high (almost scrapped this post as well).

About the game I feel like scum could have used an additional player but I guess it's not exactly normal that 3 out of 4 scum players get lynched in the first 4 days so it might have played out differently if not for that. cabot what would have happened if melon had stolen from the scum player submitting the kill? Would she actually have received a night kill ability?

I think you'll get better at that stuff the more you play. I honestly thought you played really well once you were able to give the game some more time, so I wouldn't say you can only look at hard data to get results. Just keep playing and I'm sure you'll learn more. I think I could tell that you were trying to use your experience as Scum last game to help you hunt in this game, which is something I was trying to do as well.

As for scrapping posts, I did that a lot in GoT so I can relate. I don't know if you ever peeped into my Mentor thread, but go check sometime to see how scared and nervous I was to post early on. And then obviously you know as well as anyone how terrified I was during Conspiracy. This game though, I honestly felt really comfortable and confident almost right away when it came to making posts. I think Faddy said something on D1 about how I was "posting freely" and I remember thinking that was a good way to put it. So basically, I'd say again, it will probably get better the more you play. And I do hope you keep playing because I think you're a good player and you've taken to the game very quickly and would be a benefit to your team regardless of alignment. :)

Yeah, she would have blocked the kill and have a shot herself.

Omg I would LOVE to see what a neural network predicts about our voting patterns.

You were great! I could tell you were town. Especially because on this last day phase you were much more active.

Meanwhile i went full paranoia. How could I have voted for my bro? I should have taken my own advice.

This happens all.the.time in mafia games. We have an unconscious bias - we always find reasons to scum read the loud players, the players we tend to interact with more. In so many games we have focused on the loud players and let coaster scum slip through.
