Confirming town assists with making sure scum aren't doing vote shenanigans as easily. But it is a lot harder to do and does carry risk. However at some point you either trust someone is town and are right or wrong and lylo is the last time you want to be wrong with this.
Town block is fine, but if you do it at the expense of scum analysis you are bound to make mistakes. Bad ones. Why would you even suggest that?
What specifically don't you like about this idea? That its bad to focus on only finding Town? That is not what I am suggesting. I am suggesting to shrink the lych pool so finding Scum is easier. What about that concept don't you like?
Especially now we've announced that we want a town block which will hurt them later game, i figured they would be keen to either join (difficult) or kill it
And if they kill one slot, and we then try to add someone else there, they can join more easily
But i guess it isn't so different from usual play
People naturally try to clear people, and vote for someone out of the remaining group
Problem is that people usually disagree with the town reads, and scum use that to being down the town block...
Also, thanks for the info on nks, i usually don't think too much about why people were killed because i dunno how scum selects them
Seems like there's no way to analyse it easily if there are so many things they might be thinking of
