xD Yeah claiming would've been soooo dumb. 0% of being true.
Mhm I don't want to believe this. But it's possible. I'd say 15-20% of being true.
Again, soooo dumb to have claimed. -0% of being true.
This is what I assumed happened. 80-85% of being true. I disagree with the part about all the lynch candidates are villagers, though...
Taking a page out of Gears' book, and because I'm in a unique state of currently nothing to do, DECISION MATRIX! On Ventyl/Gears Alignment.
elim!Gears/elim!Ventyl: This would be very strange as Gears is fighting very very hard for a Ventyl lynch. I guess it could be distancing, though I don't get the point and I think Ventyl is good. In this case their plan to squire me would be to get me to defend... Ventyl... prompting Gears' lynch. Yeah, this probably isn't the case.
elim!Gears/village!Ventyl: The option I believe to be the case. Everyone turned on Ventyl for his playstyle, he squired me to gain a helper, Gears jumped on board. It is kind of odd though, that if Ventyl flipped village Gears would be in big trouble. So it's kind of interesting, but I'm still inclined to think this is the case.
village!Gears/elim!Ventyl: This is certainly what Gears is proposing, and I guess it kind of makes sense, but my gut feeling is so opposite I can't really wrap my head around the possibility. I'd very much dislike this option as basically all my reads would be wrong.
village!Gears/village!Ventyl: This would be sad. No matter who gets lynched today, the other would be lynched next cycle with the elims laughing in the shadows. Very much hope this one isn't true.
Conclusion: The middle two are the most likely, imo. I don't super care which is lynched- I'd prefer Gears because Ventyl squired me- but a tie still would be beneficial, giving the fate of the game to luck. That might be better than our judgement.
Interested to see the last hour of the cycle. Votes certainly will fly, and a hidden hammer might happen. Maybe. I'll be watching.
The lynch attempt on me is such a waste of time. Any scenario I'm an elim, claiming Ventyl's squire is a very bad idea. El and Pyro, I don't know what you're doing, but this makes me suspicious of the both of you. Come off it, please
Also, random thought. Is there any proof TJ is actually a Bondsmith? Sure, he soothed off two votes but I'm decently sure you can use the same surge twice in the same night. (@Straw, confirmation/rebuttal?) If this is the case, he theoretically could be the elim vote manip as a Windrunner. But that dives so deep into paranoia I'm not further considering it for a very long time. Thanks, Gears
