plus i'm still curious as to why shaf felt the need to deflect a thg bandwagon. could be nothing, but not sure why he would care enough to make a point to nip a thg vote in the bud.
Troy, you were dead on all game. My strategy this game was to throw out votes right at the start of each day and see if anyone came up suspicious and then investigate. I checked redwill the first night, then thg. After the thg vote didn't take off I was trying to decide between shaf (for his deflection) and kraftster (for his long-winded answers) who to investigate and went with shaf.
Turned out to be a dumb strategy on my part because I put too much heat on myself by voting for guys that ended up being bad.
i guess i was trying to play a pretty simple strategy this game. that post i made to kraftster about why i was voting shaf kind of explains it. I was blue this game, my goal is to try and find a way to indicate to the village that i'm blue so they know that, so then i become only a target of the reds, and at that point that prevents an rp from getting killed if they choose to kill me. On the first day, one doesnt have any incentive to not just bandwagon the first name that is thrown out there...if several names are thrown out you really have no reason not to jump back and forth because you don't know any identiites and can only hope a red is pointed out.
while shad didn't have the implied incentive to deflect a thg bandwagon, he still did. at that point he exhibited a preference for killing one person over another. i think thats a tell because if i'm a villager i'm not posing a defense for someone that i have no clue about, but a red has two motives to potentially do that, 1. the person could be red and they just want to try and start a different bandwagon, or they just know this person is not bad so they're feel maybe they can point back at that and say they didnt take part in the killing of a villager.
either way, that indicates a stance of knowing more than the other players and the only people that know whos bad and whos good are the bad people.
