Question on Throwing


#1

Hey all! Just a weird game outcome and Im not sure this was throwing or no. Im really stymied on it lol.

I was possessor (#5) posing as prince (Just taken over him so he was confirmed)
#4 was MM
#9 was Unseen King
#15 was butler

I told them I was jailing #4. Butler said “Well then I guess Ill occupy 5”. I said “Dont, occupy 4 just in case I mess up”.

TLDR - Butler occupied me, MM converted butler, and they voted me off the island.

Fine, I dont mind dying. But to me, the butler threw by occupying a prince instead of a known evil (There was a dead NK in our list and no one suspected the NK was still alive) just to get converted since we knew King and 4 were unseen.

Anywhoo - Just wondering on your thoughts?

It all depends on the intention. Clearly his motivation was one not of seeing his own faction (BD) lose by occupying you.

Bad play (occupying a confirmed prince) doesn’t equal gamethrowing.


#3

He thought you were prince who was jailing 4 though


#4

there wasn’t anyone else to occupy


#5

Yeah what Firekitten said. I was Pretender that game (#14). You were the only person the Butler could occupy, so he did it to prove to you that he was Butler.


#6

Even when I said to occupy 4 in case I mess up?


#7

No, he did what he thought was best for him to do, try occ the prince to confirm himself.


#8

Also he could have correctly suspected Possessor (or at least wanted to cover for the possibility just in case).


#9

the real throw is butler not poisoning king D4 here tbh


#10

Assuming this happened


#11

he did poison me as soon as i became king

pretender is such a stupid class


#12

I don’t get the claim there… “In case I mess up?” Did I miss an update, how can one mess up jailing? I don’t think I’d have followed that order either way.

Maybe if you tried to talk him into partying you’d have given him a good excuse

Also always silly when people call gamethrowing under the “But I was confirmed *****” when you were the exception to the confirmation. Confirmed ___ means there’s no possible way you aren’t. If it’s a possesor game… and the occ immune prince was acting afraid of being occupied, that’s pretty fishy.

Sorry for the long delay in answering -

In case I mess up means -

In the last 10 seconds of the day you cannot jail someone. I was playing for time by saying in case I bugged or couldnt get the jail to work. It was a Just in Case of shit happening to make sure - type of situation

Also, yeah I know what you mean by you cant be confirmed. What I meant by that was I was as confirmed as I could be under the circumstances. The other guy was 100% MM. And NK was in the death logs (I had swapped with someone and made it look like Prince had killed poss).

Either way.
