    Who's discouraging participation? Also, "evolving play styles" doesn't negate meta at all, which you are implying here and I've seen stated by people several times in the recent past.

    Just to prove my point, I noted Ghost's meta is to scum claim as town. If he was trying to level us with an early town claim as either alignment, it would it no way invalidate that his past meta was fake claiming scum as town. At all times, you should always take into account that a person could be switching things up/leveling you/trolling/ whatever. None of that matters because what you are really trying to use is how a person thinks about the game and then using that knowledge to read them. Meta reading isn't actually saying a person does A as Town and B as scum "all the time"; it's understanding why they usually choose those choices in the sample you have seen and then reading their alignment to the best of your ability using all of the above knowledge.

    Ex. Worldz seems town because of meta.

    So you town-reading Ghost on non-mafia related meta is a bit of a nothingburger to me right now. You said yourself, it's town's job to cut through the crap, so I'm not sure how town-reading someone after minimal content is cutting through the crap.
    If he was teamed with ghost or scum why so over the top on D1? There are much better ways for either of them to do such a thing and avoid a lynch target for either of them than his flamboyant analysis no?

    Right but as Actvscenei said of me "He is playing an honest scum game" which is true. I gave honest reason. It is possible.

So the subtlety here (which might look like a contradiction based on what I said about when I am Town I don't like to plan things so early) is that some people you can give yourself a lens to look though. What I mean by this is, lets say there is someone who has a Scummy meta. If you go into the game reading them null, you will prolly have a better chance Scum reading them.
    That's why I included the clause: "or Null with meta". :)

    What does that even mean? Are you being intentionally cryptic? I mean seriously...if you were going to fish for reactions from people, you could have just as easily picked someone you've played with before and said "so and so is town because meta" rather than picking someone else that you've never played with before, but apparently are familiar with outside of the game. To me, it looks like a buddying attempt.

    It depends on the person, yes.

    Yeah, I really liked your description of meta reads.

    I never said no one was discouraging participation here but we should try to include everyone no? If a person is capable of changing how they think about the game of because they listen and learn should they be trusted or treated the same?

    There are lots of ways to play. I've seen scum lurk, I've seen scum play aggressively. One of the better strategies I've seen from scum is by getting cleared as town by looking "helpful" early. I'm not saying any of what QuickTwist did is necessarily alignment indicative; I think it's weird from either alignment. But since I haven't played with QuickTwist, I have no idea if this is normal. That said, with a game full of relatively new people, I could absolutely see scum trying to take control early D1. Also, I think it's unlikely that Ghost and QuickTwist are teamed.

    I'm interested in worldz meta read on ghost.
