As for the lynch/no lynch argument, I find a no lynch agreeable as long as we gain something of worth - even if it's just posts to analyze.
I'm calling time. If nobody's going to discuss then it doesn't make sense to not lynch. We have one day left and I'm going to use it.
So yeah, you have to read my responses to other players, too.
But can the players last 3 days?Also, remember that day phases in this game last 3 real life days, so there's absolutely no point in rushing things or worry about eagerly voting someone out, because that would only set the town aback.
What strikes me most is that there were lots of arguments for lynching before I posted and none after. That tells me that the mafia are not pushing against me. So, all you people who were arguing for lynches before: where are you?There are no cops in this game, so letting a night phase pass before starting to actually play is pretty useless. The information gained from a night kill would be abysmally low if there was no discussion beforehand. Of course, it's possible that at the end of the day a townie will be lynched, but we're not in LyLo and it's not the end of the world if it happens; that's part of the game. With most likely two mafia, the town can afford two mislynches before falling in MyLo.
Now, Sputnik, if you could indulge the thread further, please tell me why I shouldn't vote for you...
Now, TheMissingno., if you could indulge the thread further, please tell me why...
Now, Buoy, if you could indulge the thread further...
Now, Feralize, if you could...
I found something off about this post but I can't put my finger on it, aside for ^.
I know. Will you rebut if you're interested in a "reasoned lynch," or will you also disagree in theory and acquiesce anyways?Phoenicks does make a good argument against a random lynch, however.
Who would you lynch, if not no one?To point out that No Lynch is better than a random lynch, but a reasoned lynch is better than No Lynch.
I was explaining to a confused player and stating that we should see what others say as well before rushing into anything.
I will acquiesce because trying to No Lynch later in the game will be difficult and no one will want to suggest it for fear of looking, "scummy." In an ideal world, however, we would No Lynch in the first Day Phase where we have no clear target - that will likely be this phase, but you never know.
tl;dr: I will acquiesce.
Sputnik Is it fair for me to assume that this was your reason for voting No Lynch?
That first post of yours was the first post of Day 1, and all three were made long before Phoenicks gave the only good reason to vote No Lynch. You immediately latched onto his reasoning (in the quote below), but your original reasoning did not take the odd/even rule into account, and voting No Lynch for any reason other than the odd/even rule is decidedly anti-town in nature.
Vote: No Lynch
Reason: A.) Clearly the concensus of the Town.
B.) It is advantageous for us to No Lynch once during the course of the game, and this phase is the only phase in which we're likely to agree to such a move.
C.) Other than Sputnik, I have no leads.
D.) (Sub-question: Mew, why are you voting right now?) I have a very busy day tomorrow, I have church tomorrow morning, then work all afternoon and evening, plus my car broke down so I have to deal with that - you get the picture. I don't expect to be able to check Bulba again between now and the end of the Phase.
Why are you even voting at all? We'll get a no lynch at the end of the phase as long as no one gets 6 votes on them anyway, so the only thing voting "No Lynch" can possibly mean is that you would like the phase to end early. Why?
Because FoS'ing Sputnik without voting No Lynch might have left the impression that I wanted to lynch Sputnik instead.
This post sticks out like a sore thumb. It sounds like he knows that lynching Sputnik would be a bad idea or something, and how would he know that unless...
he's mafia!!!!!!??>??/!!!111 dun dun dun!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111
You know, Buoy, even through your childlike typing style, I agree with you. He would only care about getting the wrong impression if he is a mafioso. Also, if he were to lead a lynch on me, he knows it will lead to his downfall.
In theory, there can also be a random question stage, but I've never seen this on Bulbagarden.
Look at the date, you have your answer.But can the players last 3 days?
What we were arguing for was the typical lynch vs. no lynch on day 1, the reason being that Sputnik voted for no lynch because there was no information in the thread, not if voting no lynch in a game like this is beneficial or not. It's good to debate for the first one (although it comes up so often that it should be in the mafia philosophy thread instead of every games), but not so much for the second, as there is no arguing there. The debate could have continued for a long time, but I assume everyone stopped arguing about it either because they've had it with that archaic debate or that no matter what there would be no lynch anyway, possibly a mix of both.What strikes me most is that there were lots of arguments for lynching before I posted and none after. That tells me that the mafia are not pushing against me. So, all you people who were arguing for lynches before: where are you?
I do find this statement a bit odd:
It makes a lot of sense to me, and looking at the analyzed posts made by everyone, makes me very tempted to vote Master Mew. He could, however, be a very scummy-looking townie, so I will not vote until we get more information about him.
