Topic: Forum Games / SURVIVOR: Redemption Island - (Spoiler) voted out! Final Tribal Council starts!

To be honest, I wish I could have spent more time on this, but that really hasn’t been an option. Another day would be nice, but this game has gone on a long time.

Anywho, the game this time has been pretty straightforward. By winning the games repeatedly and never being on the losing side of votes, a simple alliance of 4 formed near the start managed to get through. Some wins were cheap, some were lucky, but we made sure to get them all somehow, except the one that we needed to get rid of funiax.

For gameplay, I’m gonna run down the game as it happened. I talked with all the members of my first team, and wasn’t sure who to vote out until I realized that with funiax, having dropped communication after being able to talk with the opposing team, was almost definitely a traitor. I suppose my first real move other than buddying up with a lot of people was to kick him out of the main alliance, and get darkboy instead. This served me well enough I suppose. The most complicated part of the game was when we were deciding on new teams. But really, nearly any arrangement probably would have ended up near the same. Wii would have gotten backstabbed, and some of the original team would have made it through. Information leaks were gained through Adeeb, but these didn’t end up being too helpful, due to the stubborness which best opposed a Puzzle/Wii team. Pretty much everything that followed went exactly as I expected, granted our win. Even Wii being voted out wasn’t unlikely, what with race being pushed out last game. Even the opposing teams not banding up together so that they could convince woon to make us a minority wasn’t unlikely, especially given that I had kept contact with racefan and did my best to get him on my side. (I suppose my promises to racefan were about the same as best made to woon, I promised to do my best to keep him in, but that didn’t happen). After that, merely winning the challenges was enough to secure the lead. Honestly, this game did not go back and forth very much, due to an impeccable winning streak.

Now, in terms of why you should vote me? I kept this alliance alive. I convinced darkboy I was trustworthy and made sure he stayed in by convincing him that I would turn on best with him if he ever betrayed us. I made sure that the enemy didn’t get much information on us by getting rid of moles and making sure I knew who talked to who. I talked race out of going after best more than once (his own lack of activity admittedly helped). I don’t know when wii got the notion that best was the best player ever, but I definitely did not consider him our commander. He certainly contributed a lot to our wins, but I believe me and him contributed equally with challenges, while I certainly talked more and kept communications up as best as I knew how.

I don’t believe ham or darkboy did as much as I did to keep the alliance alive. Ham definitely hurt us, but I kept him in since he was trustworthy. Darkboy was sometimes suspicious, but he told us nearly everything at some point. If best were still in, I might have wavered in my belief that I deserved the voted the most. But if best were still in, the rest of us would have had to be fooled no?

Precarious I can barely remember what went on in the first few weeks, and my only contact with prec happened during the temp swap, I believe. I almost feel that’s what got him out. He probably would have preferred going out like RoS, with few players left.

LethalMutiny LM losing gave us some hints of how the other tribe was working, especially considering his contact with Best. He didn’t get nearly as many games as the papa’s series.

TwistedCakez An obvious betrayal, and an annoying one, I realized twisted wasn’t helping us anymore and got the rest of the group to agree to boot him out. I suppose losing one challenge was worth getting rid of him. If only his betrayal had been more imaginative, like the majesty of colors.

AdeebNafees Oh, how I was hoping he would help us work against Wii. But you can’t do that away from your computer. There’s no redemption if you aren’t here, Jones.

Kadleon I almost expected kad to make it all the way through RI. But on a gaming challenge with woon, there wasn’t much hope. He might have won all the puzzles, but not that. It’s a shame he went out D1 again, dropped like a beat, but as far as I know that was his own fault. Music catch only lasts so long, all songs have their end.

CalmWaters Oh wiggles, how unfortunate you are. I don’t know what happened on your side, but I’m entirely sure you got manipulated given how strange the votes were. You never really worked with us, you didn’t work with woon, you lost the truel. It seems long gaps aren’t your forte, mardek.

sarothat410 No real contact with this guy either, he just never responded. An odd little bean, not talking certainly didn’t help him.

WiiPlayer113 Well, after Wii went out, the final set was assured. Wasn’t much of a competition after that. He kept on trying to work with best, so I guess that’s who he respected? Sorry mate, you can’t win them all, you can’t be in them all.

racefan12 Well, his lack of time was really what killed him. He could have scrounged up enough votes to at least challenge our alliance, but he just didn’t put in the time. His elimination was a career ending injury, which is a sad moment, but one we saw coming.

uzz and puzz They worked together till the end, they went out together at the end. Neither really made any large differences, which is part of why they lasted so long. But not making a difference means you don’t have much to work with, and they couldn’t convince anybody to join them. A shame, really. Uzz finally got a zilch, and puzzledan’s time just ended.

Woon1957 The last person not from the original alliance. You definitely did your best through the dogged days. You survived RI and made it here, only to have nobody to support you. That’s what happens when you lose the rest of your party.

Topic: Forum Games / Team Fortress 2 Themed Mafia ~ Day 4 [Deadline: September 23, 8 PM GMT]

I forgot about this game to some extent, unlike SamsterSamster.

I’d think that the mafia isn’t being inactive and their one NKer sent in something and hit somebody who wouldn’t die. It’s also possible that the NKer forgot, but in the end the lack of a death doesn’t actually say anything.

For the questions:
1. Heavy/Medic protection is the simplest of combos. The pyro should probably hold off on killing anybody because there’s a good chance they’ll hit a bomb or a townie, since there isn’t anybody ruled out yet..
2. Newampkit/Pulsaris jump on lynch seems suspicious, but it’s also common fare for that to happen when the game goes like this, so just because they posted within 30 minutes of each other to say “vote people who aren’t us out” doesn’t mean too much.
3. Yes, now that I remembered the game
4. Irrelevant question. D2 will probably end with a random lynch, since we have next to nothing to go on
5. Vote, Conversation, NA, although at the end of the game I feel like NA becomes the more important one when mixed with past Conversation

This game is nearly unplayable for me for some reason. It pauses every 4 seconds or so, and i have no clue why. Fuck this game.
