Pendio said:My spontaneous reeds make me feel like he's playing unusually rash. I had not expected him to go after Mezlo the way he did. I'm also interested in hearing from Mido a little bit in more detail what it is that makes him suspicious of Mezlo, funnier and Jimmu.
Tonight, I will post an official reads list, or at least try to get a larger one in this weekend. I'll also explain my more "rash" behavior when I get to that.
*still reading through the thread*
Why confused? I don't know if she's ever been scum before, but I was silently in agreement with Bok that we should hold off on the Storm lynch, yet she hammered in spite of that. Yesterday's lynch was rushed as heck if only because Storm kept on egging it on, but your reads aren't too far off from my own. Out of everyone, I think that Mellow Ezlo and karu are the ones who pushed it along while the others were fed up. What do you think the chances are of them being aligned? And why leave the Jimmu/karu alignment out of the picture (just curious)?
Actually, after reading your last portion about my theory on Jimmu and karu, I'm not so certain about that anymore. I was confused by karu because she defended storm rather passionately and still voted him him. Strange also was her calling out of Pendio, MF, and Jimmu. Why I'm rethinking it is because while I thought karu's case drew a decent amount of attention to his play, and therefore seemed unlikely for scum to do so early; the fact she didn't pursue it worries me, which leads me to have doubts about my own theory. Regarding Mellow and karu being aligned? I'm not entirely certain about it yet, but I think it's worth considering.
Going back to the main part of your post, I'm mainly confused about karu now because of Storm's flip. I'll need to reevaluate my stances here.
Like I said, my reasons were admittedly selfish and I do genuinely apologize for that.
While I still think your vocal push of the lynch was somewhat off-putting, I honestly don't blame anyone for going into the policy lynch especially given how much confusion he was spreading. The fact he turned up VT is even more infuriating. At least now we can garner more focus in this game environment. Nevertheless, scum knowing Storm was town could have easily taken advantage of the situation, which was the impression I got from your vocal push. I won't deny that, much like Pendio, your frustration was genuine, and I don't think your move was a bad play in that regard.
