He still could have claimed a different case... Although it's probably unlikely. I guess no one, Fiat for All

Ok that's just crazy. I'm investigate (again I know). I found The Invisible Hand to be good last night. If you're investigate Evan, then you'd have to be lying. Evan.

"I have an idea." A certain competitor pipes up during the speech round. "How about we all say what cases we are running. That way it will be fair."

"That's a great idea!" Someone chimes in. Then another. And another. Soon, a good group has volunteered case names.

Some, however, seem less than ready to share.

Perhaps they simply don't hear the request.

Perhaps they feel it isn't in their best interests.

It is a competition, after all. Sure, there's a sense of camaraderie between debaters. There always is. But not everyone can win. Only three can win.

When a case is known, you never know when a negative brief may pop up and crush it.

Regardless, because of these events, the competitors were either too busy, or too cautious, to suggest researching any cases as a group.


No one was eliminated.

[Votes cast after the deadline were not counted. Sorry!]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Night 2 (debate round) begins!

Send in your actions before the phase ends (regardless of when the update goes up) or they will not be accepted.

I don't think maranathaman's vote would have been accepted anyway, since he voted for a name instead of a case. :P

Dang it, I had a feeling it was after deadline. Oh well Maranathaman you're dead next phase :D Counterclaiming me isn't smart, I'll tell you that. :)

And now you won't kill me tonight just so you can vote me tomorrow. Or will you kill me tonight to shut me up?? Decisions decisions...

Pretty convinced maranathaman is evil. There can be more than one investigate in a game, yknow (especially in this game where investigates can be by name or by case etc.)

Also if the last six players (Cyberknight, Hammy, Ginga Ninja, Nerdripper, Sharkfin, GumboSoup) could claim that would be great thanks. Maranathaman could have lied about his case (or maybe evil!Evan is trying to get us to lynch a good player and lied about his case) so it would be great to know if there are any case-counterclaims.

There could be more than one, yeah, but if he/she is out there it ain't maranathaman

I'm investigating one of those players. evil!me could be doing that sure, but why so early in the game when I could be CC'd faster than the Emoji Movie gets bad reviews.

You have 2 and a half hours to turn in your action if you have not. I have most of your actions.

While it was true that the group research time had yielded few results, there were those... more independent researchers... who had been hard at work. Both had target cases in mind, and both managed to make small, but efficient, briefs.

Perhaps the group would come to an agreement on which case to research this speech round...



maranthaman (Fiat for All) has been eliminated. He was a Mafia.

Evan (The Case for More Funding) has been eliminated. He was a Debater.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Day 2 (speech round) begins!

Justin won't give me my investigate result :( I scanned Ginga Ninja FTR.

I also forgot this isn't a game where I can win even if I die, otherwise I'd have been much less cheeky and more circumspect. :lol: Mafia, whoever you are, I'm glad maranathaman got exposed and died by vig shot. I may be gone but my legacy lives on!

I have to say Evan, you got real lucky getting me the first turn. But I really was investigate again. That much was true. Just not alignment investigate. Anyways, gg all.

changing the world through an affirmative ballot because randomly voting off unclaimed cases doesn't hurt anything.(I really hope I am right that no one claimed that case)
