Clearly the CIA is spreading conspiracy theories, again, after their newest bay of pigs plot was foiled.
Funny you mention the bay of pigs.

Today I loaded up the update and was disgusted by the pathetic attempt offered by the first custom World I tried made by some rando. I left him lots of negative feedback..
I enjoyed all the levels of yours though Phil and look forward to playing the full world.

I dream of the day I have the motivation, creativity and productivity to produce a world of my own.

What is the real US infection rate though? The John Hopkins Map https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html says you've only tested around 3,000,000 people for 500,000+ positives. Or a 18% positivity rate.
In Australia, only about 1% of people tested come back positive. Eitehr you guys have been really good at not wasting tests or really bad at testing enough people.

Stevey, the patrol boat was constructed in Spain.

I really felt bad for lying to Rabicle. I think I prefer to be a townie in these games. Anyway, I thought that if I was a townie I would do whatever I could to support Kraid and the vote tying so that is what I did. I don't know how suspicious it was but I think by day 5 the townie alliance was just too strong. The only person that actually reached out to me individually was Rabicle. Thanks for sticking up for me Rab! Hopefully next time we are on the same side.
Haha, it's all in the game. I was jsut drawn to the idea of a workers union for space pirates. What a novel concept, to organise pirates. Also that you were jsut blatently rocking a Space Pirate sprite like me. Your mirroring of me on Day 4 was pretty good because Lucario was convinced I was mafia and begging the otehr townies to eliminate me but eventually they investigated me.

56
But yeah one other thing I wanted to comment on was Rabicle commenting on my use of they when referring to Fleece and thinking I was talking about Fleece and Mr. Bungle.    Yeah when I go with they nowadays I am usually talking gender neutral terms and if I say they when only talking about one person.  If I am talking about multiple people I will state a certain amount of people.
That possibility occurred to me in real time as I typed that sentence. Which is why it reads the way it does.

57
The critical mistake the Federation made was not killing every night. Why investigate? There's no 'wasted' kill. You have to eliminate everyone. And the vote break in day two by Kraid should've been the big sign to the Mafia (and the killer) that Steef was Kraid. If anyone was being saved by a townie power, they should assume they're valuable. And the fact the mafia knew the otehr option was their guy should've made ti a really safe call.

Anyway. I shouldn't tlak. I really did just tune out for the first two days and only paid attention from day three onwards. Pokepal and Steef are my picks for MVP, pokepal for drawing fire and in my opinion, doing the right thing to get the ball rolling for a townie alliance. Steef for securing the Metroid for himself.

Oh and sorry to BShy if I seemed inconsiderate. The 'lol' was me laughing that the vote was now easy.

58
That's it! We hold this for an hour!

I think the fact that Cruise ships are huge and naval patrol boats are smol helped it survive the "ramming". The story even describes the cruise ship as being 6 times the size in water displacement.
Also. What is a Cruise ship with no passengers, flying the Portugese flag but registered in Germany even doing jsut outside Venezuelan waters?

The framerate is wild. When it stables out it's a 30.

BUT sometimes it will just plummet into a stuttering mess. It seems to be tied to loading. After loading an area or an in-engine cutscene the framerate almost always craters.
Cheers. Maybe I'll get it on a discount one day.

Wait what?
With Mr Bungle leading the vote, Comrade Kraid used their power to force a tiebreak and then used their power to... eliminate Mr Bungle.
At least it was the right choice in the end I guess. But I am no longer convinced Kraid is the mastermind he initially appeared to be. More of a galaxy brain instead.
But lets look at that hit: Mr Bungle, a treacherous scab who lured me in with talks of unionising only to find out he was working for the Federation bosses all along.
Day 1: No voting, metroid themed posting.
Day 2: Did not vote again, despite being targeted by ejamer (a comrade Pirate, rip to a real one). Was tied for the lead on only two votes, from a now reluctant ejamer and Steefosauros, voting defensively to tie up the vote against himself.
Day 3: We wake up to hear that Kraid and Dark Samus targeted pokepal, sparing Mr Bungle. Samus' suit had a complete malfunction after a well placed shot from yours truly and Mr Bungle was part of the avalanche of votes against BeautifulShy

~~Sidebar~~
As I was reviewing Mr Bungle's activity on Day three, I found this bit of intel that was released from Samus:
Quote
I was going to unvote my vote on Steefosaurus before he changed the vote back to Mr. Bungle and I was also waiting on messages from TheFleece on who they wanted to vote for but I never got a response.
So let's break down this line. BShy and Fleece, ie. Samus and the Deleter, were in private communication and the Deleted indicated that they were part of a "they". Actually... ****, maybe BShy was just using a gender neutral pronoun… In any case, Samus and The Federation were in correspondence and BShy was prepared to stop targeting Steefosauros on Day 2 until Steef targeted Bungle. BShy went on to praise Bungle for his honesty despite calling everyone else who voted for her a traitor and Federation collaborator. I think we can pretty safely conclude that Samus and the Federation were collaborating from day 1 or 2. Which shouldn't really be a surprise.
~~End Sidebar~~

Day 4: Bungle locks in behind Steefosaurus, later joined by Mop, myself and GK, in a vote for NWR_insanolord. The vote immediately counters an early trend bandwagon against Lucario led by nickmitch and LuigiDude. I then switch wagons to Lucario and privately encourage Bungle to do the same. He remains steadfast in his vote. Lucario convinces ShyGuy to change his vote from from Lucario to LuigiDude who was also targeted by MASB on a tip off from Samus as a suspected Dark Samus. Day ends with LuigiDude trailing Lucario and Insanolord in a tie. Kraid break it by killing Federation goon stevey out of nowhere.

Day 5. Bungle basically just shadows me. After praising Kraid, Bungle joins my vote for nickmitch, which immediately attracts the ire of ShyGuy who votes for Bungle and threatens me too. Lucario joins the vote against Bungle. I switch my vote to Shyguy and Bungle immediately follows suit, except he reveals himself as an incompetent federation bureaucrat and fills in the paperwork wrong, having his vote count for nickmitch instead. Steef votes for Stratos and GK joins ShyGuy and Lucario in voting for Bungle. Lucario and Shyguy enjoys being right for the first time in their lives. Kraid forces a lock up but then decides to kill Bungle off in the night.

So what can we learn from this?
I think we can fairly conclusively rule out Steefosaurus, Lucario, GK, nickmitch, and NWR_insanolord as being Federation. Leaving Myself, Stratos, MASB and LuigiDude as potential Federation stooges.

No one can definitively be ruled out as Dark Samus.

Kraid's identity continues to confound. It's possible that Kraid was unsure about Bungle's impending elimination by vote but was contacted by the Intergalactic Space Pirate Union in the evening to convince him to eliminate Bungle afterall. Bungle also had the opportunity to defensively vote for LuigiDude but opted not to. LuigiDude also voted for himself which implies a strong confidence in not being eliminated by the vote. If I had to guess, Luigidude is Kraid.

un-Vote MASB
Has not made any meaningful contribution other than voting for BShy.

This post has been edited for formatting and grammer. It probably still contains mistakes.

How’d your big conspiracy against Mop it Up go Lucario? Was she the Deleter? You’re being played like a fiddle by what remains of the federation. You’re worse than a federation bureaucrat, you’re a useful idiot.

I am also going to un-vote nickmitch for asking too many questions about how they should act as Dark Samus.

Also I still can’t wrap my head around how Comrade Kraid changed so many votes. But I support his actions uncritically.

The crazy part is, going back and reading the previous days, there’s almost nothing to learn from Stevey and Fleece. Neither ever made any meaningful posts or votes of consequence.

I need to report to Space Pirate leadership the bullying I'm receiving. In the last 48 cycle several people have contacted me with various demands.
"If you trust me, vote for x"
has never done anything to earn my trust
"SHOW ME YOUR SPACE PIRATE ID CARD"
"If anyone tells you're they're mother brain REPORT IT TO ME, TELL ME EVERYTHING"
"Mother Brain trusts me implicitly because they told me secret disinformation."
"That's not good enough, where's your birth certificate!"
"I know I said vote x, and now I'm voting y but you should totally vote y"
"YOU'RE DARK SAMUS AREN'T YOU! JUST TELL US THAT WOULD BE COOL AND GOOD"

Its very disappointing that supposed comrades would act like this.
