Ack! I thought I had time to do a post in the main forum area, some stuff came up, and now I've not got time to analyse fully before deadline.
Before I start, I would just like to post that quote from a post I made a while ago, and note that SirGabriel has been supportive of Sabrar's opinion when others haven't been in the past.
emlightened wrote:A private chat, however? You get one player to talk to personally so that they think you're town, not scum, and who will probably defend you if you're likely to get lynched? That seems pretty useful for scum. Shame that Esthr hasn't been online today.
Also, even if I found Sabrar very townie and dimochka very scummy, I can't change my vote, because I'd only think that Sabrar's town, but I know that I am.
dimochka: Announces being a PGO immediately. He says his choice was because the other roles were too vanilla for his taste, and that he announced it because it was likely that more town roles would be able to target him than scum. It doesn't seem very useful, except for the claim that he gains a power later on. The two roles he rejected were Zapdos, which could announce that he had no other powers, and Mewtwo, who could anonymously send messages, plus a more public action (makes one person vote for themself). Says that almost everyone claimed PGO off the bat on this forum (although I don't have time to check, even if wrong, I think it would be an easy mistake to make). Promises analysis, leaves forum for a couple of days. He says that he won't claim, but that he does get an additional power on D3, before doing a short analysis. Nothing stands out to me as scummy in it, except that he didn't follow it up with a more detailed one. He states that his rejected Pokémon won't get people anywhere (I agree, there was too much analysis of that). Gets pinged by Sabrar for something nonspecific, which, although it happens, iseems convenient, given what follows. Fine with hammering self, but also asks for reasons to fullclaim. Then claims; comments that "it just makes it less fun to play this way", which seems odd, looking back at it. Doesn't post for a while; reluctant to hammer Sabrar in case there is any extra content (like this, I guess).
Honestly? He's still a solid neutral-townie. I don't like how much of the content he didn't post for, and his lack of a follow-up analysis, but I can't really find much fault in him. As to Sabrar's three points on the previous page: 1) yes, I agree with dimochka here, as although town can have reasons not to vote, I wouldn't put your post near that category. Honestly? I should have posted earlier too, and don't know why I didn't. 2) He's a one-shot vig. It's worth announcing for the late-game kill, to ensure that no townies accidentally die. 3) His short analysis is the only thing that bugs me, so I guess I agree with you on that one.
Sabrar post coming up soon.
