interesting that you understand why we can't trust your scans under the circumstances and yet respond with anger and well couched insults whenever it's explained to you.  I am not confused.  I feel that untrustworthy scans do cause confusion.  I think that's pretty straight forward.  It's obvious you have a problem with anyone who doesn't "get it"  or apparently anyone who isn't agreeing with your stance.  Also I can think of several reason why the wolves wouldnt kill you tonite,  honestly why should they?  They'd be better off killing someone else since we can't trust your scans anyway, and let us lynch you tomorrow.  I feel because of all these reasons not lynching you is detrimental to the village.  Still if the village decides to let this thing play out all over again tomorrow, so be it.  We will be no further along and probably in a worse position than we are now, with the same decision to make all over again.  I'll let the rest of you decide whether my points have merit.  If they understand the situation and let you live,  that's fine,  understanding limits any potential damage you can cause if you are in fact a wolf.
Backing off? Why?

since you asked nicely,  Im not backing off.  My vote is still on you, I still feel you are a wolf and are detrimental to us villagers and I explained my reasoning in the above paragraph.  I can see the other points of view and while I still believe you are a wolf I can understand why others want to give you 1 more day.  As I said, if the village decides that way, then thats the way we go.  I can only state my opinions and cast 1 vote.  In fact, I hope you are being truthful and are in fact not a wolf, because that would mean the wolves missed a golden opportunite to snag 2 specials in two days and thats real good for us.  I doubt it but you hey, you never know.

I picked Lassr because he was doing a great job at being very reasonable, posting thoughtfully and also posting consistently which is the best place for a wolf to hide.

As for the self-vote and some of you giving me crap about it, you are the same people who want me to dead today only because its confusing to you. With logic like that I just wanted to help make the game simpler.

You know Scoop things being confusing to us isnt the ONLY reason we want to lynch you.  Its condesending posts like this that help.  You dont like what youre hearing so we are all confused and illogical?  You started out condesending you may as well go out that way.  I believe you are a wolf and the right thing to do with a wolf is lynch him.  Lynch Scoop
1965  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WW] GTville VI: Bloodlust DAY TWO on: September 26, 2010, 06:07:22 PM
Jeez Scoop  you ask me to explain why I felt there was risk.  I explain that you are compromised as a seer due to the situation and that we cant at this point trust your scans.  What is so hard to understand about that?  In response you go all emo and vote for suicide?!  Maybe Im wrong and youre a goth, what with the emo thing.   Sorry that you feel this way.  I am just putting forth what I believe is in the best interest of the village.  I will say one thing though,  your disagreeing with me is certainly not enough to make me want to hang myself.   You want 1 more day?  I guess considering the damage youve done to your own credibility now, theres not much you can do to further hurt the village.  withdraw Scoop   Ive said how I feel, if the village agrees or not, Ill let them take point on this.

still, we do not want to lynch scoop today. we will know one way or the other tomorrow what he is. He dies tonight he was the seer. We lynch him tomorrow and he's a villager then he is the seer. If he is a wolf then we can only guess an infected seer or just a wolf.

It should be pretty to say one at least one of the two specials we revealed yesterday is really a special. The wolves were blocked last night by the hunter. I doubt the hunter would choose someone at random to protect and then the wolves choose the same one. So the hunter protected either bulletpig in hopes of outsmarting the wolves, or he protected scoop just to be sure he survives.

It hurts us in no way to let scoop live one more night.

So do we want bulletpig to proves himself and resurrect envy24? He's dying soon so why not use it while he can...well though he could be infected and retain his powers so he could be wolf and resurrect but still at least he'd be helping the village.

Thats a good point Lassr.  If Bulletpig was protected the wolves know it and hes now a guaranteed kill.  If this is the case then he should rez Envy  kind of a use it or lose it thing here.  This is also why leaving Scoop alive is a bit problematic. If the protection was on Bullet then Scoop survives tonite regardless.  Then we are back to square one with him.  He claims hes not infected and that the wolves spared him for the sure kill on Bullet.  Then we go another nite?  At this rate we could be letting a compromised seer further cause confusion for days,  and in the mean time we will be most likely lynching villagers in his place.  I guess the hunter revealing his block would help clear things up but I dont really think we want him revealed as well do we?  I feel we have a wolf in hand and I think we should do something about it.  As I stated before buying time and spreading confusion benefits the wolves.  Thats the risk of holding off.  Taking him out of the equation clears a whole lot of doubt and confusion and honestly with compromised scans, letting him live hardly benefits us since we can trust his information either way.  Aint we got fun!
1967  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WW] GTville VI: Bloodlust DAY TWO on: September 26, 2010, 02:12:52 PM
to be honest, my concern is that as a converted wolf, your scans would be tainted.  Its very hard to trust your scans at this point and if we cant trust your scans whats the point in having you scan tonite?  By doing this you both buy time for the wolf faction and spread misinformation.  I will go with the consensus of the other villagers of course but I stick by my guns.... I just dont see it being worth the risk.  The hard part is while what you are saying, Scoop, may be true, it is also exactly what a wolf would say to extend his time in the game.   Right now we are no where near lynching anyone so Id like to hear how the rest of the village feels about our current conundrum. 

I will admit, with the infection rule and all the possibilities,  this game has been very active and entertaining early on....  nice job Ravenvii!
1968  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WW] GTville VI: Bloodlust DAY TWO on: September 26, 2010, 04:23:50 AM
you left something out of your analysis there Scoop.  Maybe the alpha wolf didnt convert you because you are already lycan.  I see three possibilities here.
   1) You are the seer and have been converted.  This seems extremely likely to me.  Taking the seer out thru conversion, even if they know you may be lynched soon, gives you the chance to sew confusion and misinformation through out the village.  Plus it draws attention away from the two special wolves while the village concentrates on your situation.  If we let you live this buys them even more time and that is a major risk to take.
   2) you are not the seer and are a wolf.  While I feel this is less likely, the end result is the same if we dont lynch you,  you buy more time while distracting us from the other wolf.
   3)  you are the seer and for some unfathomable reason wasnt converted.  I find this to be very unlikely.  
The smart wolf play and what I feel happened last nite was that the wolves converted you and therefore had no reason to kill you.  They instead chose to go after Bulletpig, whom the hunter protected, which under the circumstances was the right move.  By doing this the wolves are guaranteed to take out 2 specials in two days. I cant see them missing this opportunity.  
   2 of these 3 scenarios have you being a wolf and they are the 2 most likely scenarios.  I feel theres better than a 2/3 chance you are a wolf and cant see any logical reason to lynch someone else in your place.  Not with those odds.  Sorry but my vote stands.  
1969  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WW] GTville VI: Bloodlust DAY TWO on: September 26, 2010, 02:39:52 AM
agreed,  I mentioned in the planning stages that the infection in particular seemed a bit overpowered especially in the case where the seer gets taken.  Even the possiblility of that happening has serious side effects as we are learning.  I think its an interesting and fun rule for sure but it has definitely turned the village on its head and we are not even sure its been used.

1972  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WW] GTville VI: Bloodlust DAY TWO on: September 26, 2010, 02:01:00 AM
a) The Alpha Werewolf) can at any time during the game, pick one villager to infect.     

Theres the rule and there is no restriction on it whatsoever.   Also in the the list of night orders, nowhere does it list infection as a nite activity.  We should definitely wait for clarification but Im betting that infection has already taken effect and the rule plays as it reads.
1973  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [WW] GTville VI: Bloodlust DAY TWO on: September 25, 2010, 10:18:23 PM
reading the rules, theres nothing that states or implies that either death or a rez cleanses a person of an infection, so until Ravenvii confirms or denies this we have to assume that a rez does not alter the infection.  The other thing about infection is definitely worriesome.  It does state that at any time during the game, the alpha wolf may choose to infect a villager.  So yeah, the smart play by the wolves would be to have infected Scoop immediately after he came out, unless obviously he was already a wolf and decieving us.  It seems you are probably correct Qan,  that Scoop is almost certainly a wolf either way now.  If Scoop was faking seerdom, having the real seer come out would help us know for sure but as I figure we have to lynch Scoop either way, theres no sense in the seer revealing himself at all,  the problem of Scoop should be solved by days end.  I see no real option but to Lynch Scoop at this time.  We certainly can not afford to allow an infected seer to live.  Of course, if Scoop was faking seerdom, the same applies.

if you read the rules edits are allowed in this game.


and? i still disliked edits big time, and still view them akin to cheating....so my vote stands, you still have to satisfy your fellow villagers in terms fo the editing..,,i still dont like them, and wont...so
envy24

Ok  NC  I understand your point regarding continuity of information but if the above statements are not calling someone out for cheating then what is?  I just thought it was harsh,  it bothered me and I decided to speak out about it.  If you really have an issue with it, shouldnt you take it up with the mod who set the rules?  If he agrees with your point of view Im sure he can make a rule change and I doubt anyone would really mind that much. Anyways,  I wont beat on this any further because this is after all a game and as such supposed to be fun.

yes, in the post that was edited he changed the word "need" to "needed"    Not saying he isnt possibly a wolf or that lynching him isnt a good idea,  I just think NC's been a bit harsh about the edit thing when its allowable in the rules.  I mean seriously how was Envy to know that following the rules would lead to his death?

lynch envy 24

am sure he will roll in here in close enough time...

wooohahhh..i feel like the Scoop "the knee capper" Malone here...with that killing blow...you always get that rush scoop when you do this?

you guys are going to make Qantaga cry- he always wants to give them a last chance to defend themselves.

he already said he was an innocent...also i probably would have let him live if he had chosen to not edit his post earlier....that shoots up red flags to me....i might get lynched for it, but it's worth the point. Hopefully he can roll in here prior to the raven's write up. if not...well we shall see.

You know Newcastle, youre welcome to your opinion and all but the moderator of the game put edits in the rules.  Envy made a grammatical error, corrected it and explained it.  You basically earlier called him a cheater for it and have bashed him several times as well.  So whats this point that you want to make?  That following the mods rules is meaningless if they dont suit your personal guidelines?  Im sure if Envy knew you would be so incensed by his violation of your personal sensitivities, he would have avoided doing so but he made his post prior to you making this position clear.  Its too late to save him but maybe seeing as he hasnt edited a post since you went off on him, you might want to be a little bit less harsh about it.  Just saying.

Since I am the Seer (although unproven), why don't you all just vote with me? What do you have to lose?

You really are trying to convince me that youre a wolf arent you?  We lost our steam becasue quite a few of us have this thing called work that kind of gets in the way.  Of course some of us actually sleep prior to work  ( but apparently not CeeKay )  so yeah, we lost our steam because of outing you in a witch hunt ( scoop says, heaping on the guilt )    And as far as you being upfront and honest?  well that remains to be seen eh?  and it didnt lead you to getting lynched now did it?  Nice attempt to make us feel guilty and then feel shame for training an upfront, honest and of course humorous person.  Damn I feel like I just bitch slapped Mark Twain or something.  So youve played us your tune here and now were supposed to dance to it?  I think not!       (  the above statement is somewhat based in jocularity,  I use jocularity to avoid being lynched for being upfront, honest and humorous )

Scoop,
 
As Seer, you have not had a scan yet, so you know the same as all us innocents.
 
What we would have to lose is, that if you are a wolf claiming Seer on the edge of a lynch, you would assuredly lead us to lynch an innocent.

and to top it off you would have an easy defense for doing so.  Its day one what does anyone really know?  Oh yeah,  the wolfs know quite a bit, dont they?

interesting turn of events here.  Of course Scoop did exactly what a desperate baddie would do, so hes not off the radar yet.  If he isn't the seer then the real seer has a dilemma.  In the end though I have to believe that the seer should stay hidden.  While it would be nice to nab a wolf in seers clothing,  the seer can get a few more scans in with minimal damage to the villager this early.  If scoop does turn out to be a false prophet, it will come out soon enough and the extra scans the seer gains can be extended even further with a rez in play.    Ill Withdraw scoop  for now and see how this plays out.

While I enjoyed the premiere, the ratings sound pretty bad (worse than usual bad, alas)...

man, should we start the deathwatch now?  I hope the writers have enough foresight to not have a cliffhanger and make this season self contained like they did with the original order for season 3.

Actually the ratings were better than last seasons finale.  I think Chuck has some leeway because of the competition theyve placed it against.  That and it seems that NBC just likes the show.  So Im hopeful that inspite of the low ratings, Chuck will get its full run .

Oh and Harry Dean Stanton was one of the best bits in the season opener... definitely enjoyed the Repo Man connection.

ok so after reading through the thread heres a "how to spot a wolf" tutorial    1.  A wolf will lurk to avoid attention   2.  A wolf will be vocal because we lynch the quiet ones  3.  A wolf will vote late to help push a kill.  4.  A wolf will try to say in the middle of the vote to avoid suspicion.  4. A wolf will try to assume a leadership role and lead the villagers to their deaths  6.  A wolf will try to avoid leading and instead try to back the leaders when safe to avoid suspicion.   7.  A wolf will bounce their vote around to avoid being pinpointed.   8.  A wolf will avoid voting at all and let the villagers drive the train.


see, understand a few simple guidelines and we spot a wolf easily!   saywhat

It was pretty good.  Im sure we wont know what "the event" is for quite some time.  Seeing some comparisons to Fast Forward, Ill just point out that its not on ABC  (Already Been Cancelled).  Plus so far the characters are much more engaging than FF's were.  I hated the lead in FF and how his relationship was basically a self fulfilling prophecy.  Plus the 3 month hiatus was completely stupid for a show that relied on a continuous plot line.  I gave uo on Fast Forward after the hiatus, mainly becasue by the time it came back it was already pretty much cancelled.  Hopefully NBC is no where near as stupid.  Genre shows are notoriously short lived on network TV but Im willing to give it a shot and I hope if they end the show prematurely that they have the decency to give it some closure.

Didn't we already see "the event" last night?  Or is it something that happened in the past?  Either way I was on the fence until the last 5-10 minutes or so, which caught me by surprise but totally sucked me in.  I think the title of the show is misleading as it implies a single "event" that the whole show is based around, where really there's enough drama and plot and "events" to make the show much more than that, or so it seems at least.

My concern about the show is will it be able to hold people's patience, as many have shown they are not willing to stay focused on a really story driven plot.  This show missing is confusing enough on its own, and missing any one episode would be horrible.  Stylistically I think they are perhaps being too ambitious/confusing with the multiple perspectives and flashbacks, but all in all dramatically I think things worked very well.  For those of us that watched Damages, Lost, 24, Flash Forward - it's kind of a nice fill in since all those shows are gone.  But it can certainly be a challenge to keep up with the timeline and all the events (no pun intended).  I don't know if the general audience is going to be happy trying to follow the plot.

The "event" is something that happened in the past.  They had commercials this summer that showed a lot of what happened in the pilot and kept saying this will happen but this is not THE EVENT....  What we are seeing currently are the various repercussions of the "event"    I will agree on a major point here,  the bouncing around in the timeframe feels a bit contrived.  They could generate as much and possibly even more suspense running the show with less gratuitous flashing around in the timeline.  As someone else mentioned, they really risk losing general appeal by going all Memento on us.

CeeKay no longer has an avatar.  What are you trying to hide?  Old skeletons in the closet perhaps?

just avoiding a repeat of the avatar madness from last time.

CeeKay, if you give in to the avatar terrorists, then the terrorists have won.

well,  it's lunchtime here at the happy place I call work.  I can actually post without the risk of a cellphone enema  yay.   Nice train on Scoop there,  that puppy gained stream fast!  I think I'll join in on the moliere thing.  His avatar pic is shadowy, hairy and kind of scary there.  Yep, it's day 1 and that's the best I have to go on.
