Chloe’s Tips and Tricks to Hopefully Not Get Decimated

Disclaimer: I have ~zero clue how to play closed/rolemadness setups, and vanilla games are goat image

1. Read every post.
Even the long ones like this. Don’t go ‘ooo wow long post ok this is probably town,’ and instead absorb the content. Our site has a horrible horrible habit of constantly posting one-liners, and seeing wallposts as being townie af, or just ignoring them as a whole. This is dumb. We should change this. It’s really really bad.

2. Don’t play like this is mountainous.
The game isn’t mountainous, so don’t play like it is (as much as I want to). Context and timing for claims should be taken into account. Legitimacy of claims should be taken into account. Checks and mech info should be treated with a grain of salt, as we can’t possibly know everything that happened action-wise, but should still be taken into account. That being said:

3. Don’t overly rely on mech info or claims.
Claims don’t clear you. Your claim should not be the only thing stopping you from being an elim. Play the game, and allow us to find you socially, if you’re town. Just because someone claims something powerful or odd that you ‘never see as being scum’ does NOT mean they are not scum and you no longer have to read them. If people who claim powerful shit live to lategame, something is wrong. Also… DONT IMMEDIATELY OUT YOUR CHECKS. Allow time for spew! Don’t jump the gun because it’s exciting.

4. Fuck meta (except when it actually does something).
We suck at metareading. Nobody in this game has distinct meta that bars them from being a wolf. Meta is a crutch that we are allowed to use (and I’ll definitely rely on it it a bit lol) but should never be the main basis for a read.

5. PLAY BY POE
Everyone wants to find wolves. I get that. We all wanna be the hero who solves the game and dunks on every wolf ever, but that isn’t how you win. Earlygame idc, go ham, but the best way to get a dub is if we find villagers and don’t give the wolves any wiggle room. (Yes, I’m linking That One Newcomb Article, eat me). Form a towncore and work together. Don’t try to be a hero.

6. Don’t hyperpost.
Hyperposting makes your ISO a pain to go through, and will make it infinitely harder to figure out what your reads are and/or find you as town. I know it’s fun to hyperpost and meme and shit, but like… I like to win, so let’s do that instead. Wolves can fit in much easier if we allow them to top the postcount and clog the thread. So don’t!

7. Don’t be stupid.
