    Green - Looked for who was [28] on day 1, might have been trying for subtle deflect from MrT. Also on the Burnage wagon, wouldn't be surprised to find a mafia there. (Was also looking at Dragon#s for that same reason, but he didn't vote day 1 so not feeling as strong about it.)

    Meant to put that, but can't edit vote post.

    Also noting I don't feel super strong about my vote because if Green was mafia he prob should have voted for me on Day 1, but maybe that would have looked too obvious. Could have been going for subtle plus I think there might have been confusion about what time vote close was with Disc and Burnage's after hours votes that day.

    Voted for 38thDoe on Day 1, possibly to hedge against future accusations. More importantly to me, he was around near vote close on that day and chose to avoid the whole vote mess that ended up happening. That's what I would have done if I were a mafia. Jumped on the Burnage wagon early on Day 2. Pretty safe place to be, all things considered, if you wanted to avoid suspicion.

    :o

    since my hiatus, i've noticed quite the change in the metagame. all of the "regular" players got a lot quieter. It's really kind of sad, cause phalla is supposed to be a social game.

    [edit] i understand that everyone wants to win, or at least make it close to the end and play as long as possible.....and posting/talking tends to attract attention.....but, it really becomes quite insular, and not fun. just some thoughts..... just ask yourself why you gravitated towards this game, and whether that attraction has changed.

    [double edit]since i was gone for a while, i went back and re-read a lot of the old phallas i've played. i was a hot mess. i made mistakes.....but i made mistakes loudly and publicly. I got some flack from some ppl, and i got some pretty extra-personal comments from the "regulars"...and it's okay, i own all of it. but at the end of the day, i embraced the spirit of the game. I talked, I made noise, I did dumb things. But i enjoyed all of it at the time.

    Problem is, the instant you start talking, you're a target. Yes, I agree that it's a social game, but it's also a game about survival. And at this stage, there's just not a lot of pure raw data to go off of ya know?

    I always see rules made about talking (2 posts per day) but they never get enforced.

    And yeah, talking makes you a target, much more than just posting your vote and flying under the radar.

  • GizzyGizzy i am a cat PhoenixRegistered User regular
    If you're just another link who cares if people target you? Once you die green people can go back and reread everything you said with complete trust.

    After looking at the vote record for a few minutes, I was just about to suggest the same thing myself.

    I might not be around during vote close so I've got to drop a quick vote on JayKaos.

  • premiumpremium Registered User regular
    Maybe talking makes you a target for the mafia, but not talking is a good way to end up looking suspicious yourself if you do manage to survive to the end of the game
    Talking more is just better for the village.

    Re: Cythraul

    Yeah I think so, and the conclusion was that he voted before MrT had any votes on him at all, so it doesn't actually look like he was trying to save him or anything.

    Cythraul's day 1 vote would look suspect if I was mafia. But I'm not. But you don't know that, so I'm am just suspicious as he is.

    That is true .. but I'm less suspicious of ties when it's 3 to 3 at 1PM. Plenty of time to undo a tie.

    I'm not arguing for you to change your vote or saying it's a bad vote though, just putting my thoughts on it out there.

    I would talk more, but

    a) I'm really terrible at analyzing vote records and posting behaviors, so I often just wait for someone else to come up with a target that sounds good. It doesn't help that occasionally people are quite harsh about shooting down theories they don't agree with.

    b) I don't know many of the CF people or the various Phalla forum history that's built up over the years, so a lot of the casual conversation goes right over my head.

    I do much better in PMs, where I don't feel like I'm wading through a decade of entrenched Phalla knowledge.

    I'm also terrible at part a.
    And also paranoid that people are going to believe me when I'm wrong and I feel guilty for leading the village in the wrong direction. And equally paranoid that no one believes me when I'm right. And sometimes I read harshness into responses when harshness is unintended. So I get it.

    Yeah, this is what made me take a hiatus - I was the only one talking so I was picked off by the vote, viga or mafia

    Will vote later, on phone

    Yeah I usually get murdered either for not talking enough or for talking so much that people find it suspicious. So I'm never sure which way to go in that regard.

    Yes
