Previous re-read of BoomFrog was way back early-ish D2, where I labelled him as likely town, but possible second scum team member, unlikely buddies with moody. Actually, as I reread some of my previous notes on this, I'm less convinced about the not-moody-buddy point than I was. Of note is that [url]the reads list[/url] I identified where he asked moody questions, on looking through again includes questions only to moody, Sabrar, and bessie, and I no longer stand by my comments I made about the questions not coming from his buddy. I haven't reread his D1 end, where I gave him a number of townie points, although some anti-town points as well, such as labelling me and moody as likely scum-buddies (he later backs down on this point - interesting considering his current stance on me).
D2, he went quiet for a couple of days around my read post of him. Asks for low-frequency posters to weigh in on cases presented by EGW and Zyth. Thinks plytho is scum for mud-slinging. As pointed out by somebody else, he thinks moody was being bussed by the time he was voted, which doesn't really stand up to reality (later clarified to be in the top 4 case, although I'm not confident about this either). Interesting quote saying that there was no way we ended up with two scum buddies as D1 lynch candidates in such a big game, given his current stance. Starts feeling better about plytho, because he says things BF agrees with. Has Madge as painfully clearly town. Prods Gamma for answers over moody scum buddies, and second team. Points out town slip from Gamma. Asks for confidence results from PW. Responds to EGW's case on him
. I have no idea where he gets his ideas about Bessie being somebody he won't get a good read on through questioning, because her last scum game was a long time ago, before BoomFrog returned to playing (I don't know if they played together before then). Explains that the moody wagon was suspciously strong, hence why he switched away for a period. Starts leaning to bessie, after finding her response to him solid. Gets stuck behind for a while, justifying his later comment about re-reading me only fully overnight. Eventually catches up and posts a reads list, including me in townie pool "sincere content", Gamma also for his "town" slip, bessie town, Spak (some OMGUS there, if I'm not mistaken). Doesn't want to lynch FF only because LG does, which is a bit of a weird comment, especially given that he isn't even certain LG is scum (puts him and plytho as one or other as likely scum, marginally leaning LG, but hardly definitive). Engages with EGW on some of his reads. Starts asking Zen and Sabrar questions, to try to get a bit more of a read (presumably). Disappears for the weekend, as previously stated, and on returning, has Spak, FF, Red Ryu, Znirk as top four. Continues to defend his read of Madge. Claims that
the real place to analyse "is the low 4 prevotes", which I'm not sure I agree with (too easy for scum to throw their weakest buddy as a distant fourth, whilst focusing their votes elsewhere). Spends quite a bit of time defending Zen, as not buddies with moody. Also doesn't agree with Zen/Spak scum buddies (note to self - come back to this when reading D3 content - does he ever refer back to this?). Suddenly puts me as probably scum for going for easy lynch targets. Doubts Spak or Gamma are scum, despite Spak being his top scum read earlier. There's nothing there to say why his opinion changed. Switches vote to Gamma, then back to hammer Spak, with the statement
"there's so many people I'd rather lynch". Grills Spak post-hammer.
D3 - Opening post
agrees with plytho's analysis except for him giving me a free pass for the counter wagon point (contradiction with the quote below). Notes that moody say he'd be happy to switch to RR or Gamma, but not me (a fair point, potentially). Belatedly explains his comment about preferring to lynch people other than Spak, in response to bessie. Has a good tell on plytho, and invites to focus elsewhere. Explains that his vote on Spak remained because he was still catching up. Responds to EGW's case with reasonable sounding points. Reads list here
looks okay, apart from his read on me, which is still incredibly weak reasoning for his top scum read (I accept points made later about me not changing my reads based on re-reading as potentially being suspicious, but not the way I post, especially given that at least one of the examples was how I had started adapting my reads for easier reading). He neglects to note that my early list for D3 was made from a PoE perspective - who is left after removing the townies? I'm not sure why it being the same as my end of day 2 thoughts is that surprising. Maybe I'm over-confident in my reads, but I hadn't had the time yet to really analyse a number of people. Interestingly, he misses the fact that in between the groups he presumably is talking about, in my ordered reads list, I had Red Ryu fairly far towards town, but that fell away again as I had strong opinions on others. I'm beginning to think, perhaps with an element of OMGUS, that I have successfully identified the scum team, and BoomFrog is trying to paint me as scum because I have identified his whole team and am not wavering from it. He goes elsewhere and draws FrozenFlame into the game. Interacts with a few other players, including trying to draw Red Ryu into his case on me. Asks for my rolename for some reason. Wants to lynch me ahead of Ryu to prevent my power use. Ends up agreeing with Sabrar re. Zen's comparison cop. Addresses a hypothetical doctor to basically suggest that he should protect Zen. Remains against Madge self-stumping. He talks more
about moody showing no interest in me as a counterwagon, once more contradicting the below quote. He does push against my wagon somewhat, but FMPOV that was presumably only to try to lay some false trails for town.
