Actually, it was a pretty interesting read, but the one thing Arfy says sticks out to me- it is a game and should be treated as such. Who cares if you have to lie or backstab a bit? Do any of you guys really think that person is actually that way in real life? This is not real life, it is just a GAME and I personally think one should play it however one wants to.....if you want to use your integrity and honesty then good for you and if you want to lie and backstab then go for it as well.

But see, jhard never screwed me. ghutton did so more than horvie, but not by any egregious manner. Your decision to say yes to everything means that you also have to screw everyone you don't take to the Final Three.
I think if you ask anyone in the game, they would have voted for one of those two over you in the Final 2.
I, personally, would have considered throwing the Final 3 challenge with you and sjurat in hopes that either of you would have taken me. Because I thought the only one I could beat in the Final 2 was you.
Besides, I would have voted for csudak as the winner over just about everyone and he screwed over me. I can understand the difference between a game and getting my feelers hurt.
It just depends on how you see the game. Apparently you want someone to win that just follows suit and doesn't actually play the game. Just gets lucky and happens to be there at the end. Me, I want someone that takes chances and takes control over their own desitny. And this is also the reason I'm not going to play survivor anymore. Because no one wants to play a game.
Arfy making a ton of "alliances" is a great plan and he can be involved in lots of the action. The stevedotdead fake was a very creative move by psap and I thought golfpro had a fantastic idea to gleam information from other players by creating a fake polabonez account.
Sorry I missed this one, I will try to watch for the next version.
The game of Survivor is set up to be a series of balances. You have to screw enough people to get to the Final 2, but not so many that you have too many people on the jury that you screwed over compared to who you are with.
This is why I voted for horvie.
Yes, ghutton did a lot of the heavy lifting for his alliance, but then he tried to have it both ways by not wanting to get someone in the Final Two with as much blood on his hands as he had.
He ended up next to someone who had less enemies on the jury he built.
I, personally, feel no ill will toward any of the players, even Arfy lol.
I harken back to my favorite season of this game that I ran. The one that polabonez and bellatrix played together. They got all the way to the Finals by getting everyone to hate Emma while Tyson made big moves. In the end, they were smart enough to sit by each other, because there was no way that either of them were going to win against someone else.
This was a great season, though.
