So all of Team Michael came to vote....
3 of them thought caesari should be the first to go....
But 4 of them thought ffbplayergod should extinguish his torch.
ffbplayergod must leave Survivor Islands... Hopefully with a little bit more cooth.
So, I ran this game for a long time, and I know how it works maybe more than anyone other than Tyson.
Many people assume this means that I have the best chance to do well.
Yet, we are again proven that is not true, because to do well at this game consistently, you can't play like I do, which is make a few good loyal alliances and be fiercely loyal to those. That is also how stevedotdec plays, though we have never worked together.
You have to get extremely lucky to win that way. I have had alliances with several people in this game, some pretty strong, but to do well you have to be more like Arfy and make an alliance with everyone.
So, I will not be winning this. In fact, I believe I said I wasn't going to play in my original post and somehow ended up in the game. The reason I didn't want to play, is that honestly, I am tired of every time I play, Arfy putting a big target on my back to get me out early.
Not mad at him for that, by the by. I consider Loren a friend. He is just an evil Russell style Survivor player, which is not my style.
So, the only reason I decided to play this season is because I talked to Arfy before the game even started and agreed to work together with him. Because frankly, I don't have the energy to keep up with his constant lies otherwise.
Of course, it is only a matter of time before a snake is a snake. Arfy doesn't make one alliance. He makes 30, and I am sure he still has 30. In my first tribe, I made an alliance with nyaggie because Arfy recommended it and asked me to help keep nyaggie safe, and then we aligned with others. Honestly, the others in that alliance seemed far more loyal and trustworthy, but nyaggie didn't sell me out or anything.
Then I ended up in a tribe with Arfy and some others. So, it looked good. Except that the main rule of Arfy remains the same. Makes sure that Dubs can't win. He stabbed me in the back on the very first vote of Michael. Literally, the very first chance he got. THE VERY FIRST.
I regret that ffbplayergod felt the weight of that, because Arfy is the one that chose for us to vote for Caesari. Now, he himself didn't. But that was the only person that chose to vote that way. He made a big speech about caesari trying to get him out in the last tribe first and everything.
I can't win this game now. Arfy beat me. Bravo to him for that, I suppose. But again, if his plan was to do that, next time, just tell me before I waste a couple of weeks working on something. Because there were two people I contacted before the game to work with because I legitimately wanted to work with them if I was going to play.
I really think you should have voted me out on the first vote, though. Because unlike golfpro, I wouldn't have broken the fabric of the game I helped create and sell you out in the forums. For the record, golfpro should never be allowed to play again. In any game like this. Talking after you are off the island just ruins the game, and should not be tolerated.
Yet, until the next vote, I am still here. So, here is my warning to others. I know I can't win. I won't quit, of course, but I can't win. I can do the math.
I do know this. I have had a deal with Arfy since day one. Yet, his bond with Caesari is stronger than that. If you believe that either of them is really working with you, I suspect you are wrong. Clearly, they are working with each other. It then becomes up to the players that outlast me if you let them coast past you and lie to you.
I obviously gave you fair warning, but then, I had prior knowledge of what a deceitful player Arfy is as well, and I still tried to play with him.
Loren is sneaky like that. He's a great player. He probably deserves to win. Up to you if you let Pete err... Abbi err.. Arfy win.
