6.S SCWL 6 Summary

So where to begin when addressing SCWL 6?

Throughout SCWL 5, it had been rumoured that SCWL All Stars would be the next game. As the summer dragged on and as I examined the calendar, I noticed that an all star game would be taking place between the end of October and the end of January if it was going to be the next game.

This is usually the least popular time of year for ORGs, and knowing that many potential all-stars have been semi-retired from ORGs because it interferes with their real lives too much, I came to the conclusion that an all-star game needed to be delayed until February.

Because SCWL 5 took place between the middle of May and the end of July, and episodes airing through to the first weekend of October, this was too big of an empty gap for the series. This seemed like the perfect time to host SCWL 6 as a regular season.

Upon SCWL 5’s conclusion, I had just completed my Creative Writing degree at UBC. Thanks to a lacklustre job market in town, weather getting worse after months of long distance running, swimming, and other exercises, and my friends going back for additional semesters at university, I found myself very bored at home by the end of October.

This meant I had a ton of time to plan every challenge and twist for SCWL 6. In fact, I cannot recall any other season where I had more time on my hands to focus on SCWL. Because I announced months earlier that this would be a three-tribe format, I embraced the unique opportunities that it offered and ran with it by implementing three brand new twists for the series. All of these twists took place in the pre-merge phase to make it the most twists in the pre-merge that I have ever pre-planned.

It is tough to not mention the high expectations and anticipation for this season. It was going to be the final game before all-stars, and EVERYONE was going to be watching this game closely expecting the highest calibre game yet. After SCWL 3’s trainwreck, SCWL 4 revitalized the series for an excellent game, but SCWL 5 managed to follow SCWL 4 by improving on that to make it the high point of this series. That alone could have been enough to create high expectations for SCWL 6.

So what is my overall reaction to the season?

Well, we have played five games and a prequel.

SCWL Prequel gets one star out of five.
SCWL 3 is two stars out of five.

SCWL 1 and 4 are four stars out of five.
SCWL 2 and 5 are five out of five.

Either the games have been defined as failures or are mostly regarded as some of the greatest games in the history of Facebook ORGs.

SCWL 6 is the first game in the series that is just average. It is a solid 3/5 simply due to the mixed reactions that it was met by the audience. Some players will absolutely love it, others will hate it, and many will indeed give it that same average rating.

So what the heck happened to contribute to such a mixed game?

It really began before Opening Day. One player in particular had such an explosive impact on the game even if it lasts for only a moment. This led to an antagonistic atmosphere where everyone was ultimately against me for the first three episodes. Even though the three-tribe format was well known a full month before the game began, everyone was furious by the way I put them into three tribes.

Throughout the three episodes you will some of the ugliest fights ever seen. In a series that has only one or two fights per season, we have about eight or nine different fights that get way too ugly in the first three rounds. In fact, I was completely exhausted as I tried to maintain order and a sense of direction for the game. If I were like several hosts online, I may have just canceled the game and not bothered. But this is SCWL, and we always push through to a finish.

Despite the ugliness of the first three rounds, the Tribal Councils and the hunt for a brand new version of the hidden immunity idols were the only things that went smoothly.

A classic component for the SCWL franchise combined with the debut of a previously banned twist in round four began to change the atmosphere of the game. In fact this is the point where it starts playing as a real season. There is one more intense fight that players have with me in round four, but after a rare response from me as a culmination of all of the anger directed towards me for the first four rounds, I could resume being a host rather than a courtroom judge.

Unlike SCWL 3 which had a slimy beginning because things were too inactive, SCWL 6 suffered from being -too- active, and is likely somewhat responsible for the conflict in the opening four rounds.

The season evolved into a story about the highest number of newbies and sophomores in the ORG universe to appear in any season of SCWL, underdogs and wildcards who struggle to overcome the powerhouses, and players who exploited every tactic possible to try and win.

The level of fighting was not the only thing unprecedented about this game. Every round I was announcing a new record to the point that everyone could not help but make fun of the frequency of unprecedented events occurring. Two of these unprecedented events shape two of the greatest rounds of play that occur right around the halfway point of this game.

As for the ending, everyone thought the game would finish off on a predictable note and a winner that was coming from a mile away. But this is all shaken up when the wildcard picks up a rare advantage over the others. The subsequent moves made stunned not only the audience, but the jurors, the other players, and even myself. I would say this is a contender to match Jeremy’s series of blunders from SCWL 5 in terms of a jaw-dropper.

This sets up a Final Tribal Council that is nothing like you will ever see in the series. In the past, the winner is always someone who is universally praised and beloved by the end of the game. This is the first time in the whole series where virtually the majority of the jury had to vote for somebody that they hated the least or felt indifferent towards in the Final Two.

In short, a predictable boot order on paper, but the intriguing mix of of personalities, new challenges, debuting twists, and other events throughout the game will keep you enjoyed.

I think you will like what SCWL 6 will offer you as a viewer.

P.S. Oh, and the most music integrated into episodes? 😛 Enjoy.

6.C SCWL 6 Cast Assessment

This may go down as one of the most competitive casts we ever have. Nobody is entering this season with a strong reputation of being a really good player, therefore nobody can claim to being a threat.

Another reason why I say it is competitive is because this was the quickest qualifying procedure ever. These eighteen just demolished the qualifying questionnaire as well as the additional task of uploading a photo. Last season it was a struggle just to get people to submit a photo or they would wait until the last minute possible to complete the questionnaire. I think sixteen people did the qualifying questionnaire in the first six hours.

ADAM KOLODNY

I have seen Adam play Match Game on my television. I have seen him get into multiple fights during discussion on PoS. I have heard that he was nominated as one of the worst hosts in the ORG world. He is perhaps the most recognizable name in this cast.

Can AdKol win? No.
Will he provide lots of drama? Yes.

I think Adam will have a humilating downfall during the first half of the game. I hope it is during the first couple rounds of the merge, but if he is on a tribe that struggles, I could see him being voted out within the first three rounds of the game. He told me he is “not techy” which worries me as to how far that extends in a group of people who are very active and competitive.

ANGEL CANDELAS

Along with Moises Moreno, Angel is a Texan. And judging by the name, perhaps a Mexican along with Moises too (although I mixed up Marcelo from SCWL 2 as being Filipino rather than Brazilian in my notes before). I could see a mentoring process here because Angel is a decade older than Moises. In a game where very few people know each other, I think their shared geographical background may be enough for them to apply. Angel has been active in the group since he applied. I sense leadership qualities from Angel. That could be what gets him to the end or be out if he is in the minority. Surviving a minority vote with three tribes is much tougher because it guarantees a 50/50 shot of you going home in the first Tribal Council.

I will be surprised if Angel is one of our quieter players because everything thus far indicates he will be anything but quiet. It would be fun to see him on a tribe with AdKol.

CAMERON JOHNSON

He recently emerged into the reality TV world. One of the younger players at the age of nineteen. He is perhaps the most active person discussing Survivor and The Amazing Race online. His newbie status can be indicated by the fact that this is his first ORG. Cameron is going through every season and involved in every strategic and historical discussion about Survivor to gain a ton of knowledge.

Now he can put this knowledge to the test for the first time. I think Cameron’s enthusiasm will carry him to the merge. The fact he is a newbie will give him a big advantage because I think he will be social enough to get himself to the end without drawing attention. I will be interested as to how Cameron uses this huge wealth of Survivor knowledge. How will he apply it?

COREY ALTIERE

Corey is another of those who I do not think will win. He has never been too popular amongst female ORG players. From when I played with him in SurviveWar Vietnam and hearing about his performances in other ORGs, Corey’s best allies are always men. I cannot think of another player whose sucees relies upon gender dynamics, but with Corey it does. He should be thankful only three women are in this cast.

Corey is very loyal. He can be outplayed, but strategists tend to drag him as long as he can because he stays fixated to an alliance. If Corey is in a four-person majority pre-merge, watch out because I think he can make it to the Final Two. And if his partner is not careful, Corey could very well win a jury vote.

He just needs to lay off the drinks every once in a while and not show his hand.

DEANNA BASTIN

Deanna is a huge question mark for me. If I had to put money on the second most likely person to go home early after AdKol, DeAnna would be my bet.

Her biggest worry is challenge performance. And that worries me because it is a three-tribe format. Poor challenge performance sticks out much more in this format because there is very little room to hide amongst other weak links. And I do not see DeAnna having the strategic initiative to guarantee a spot in the Final Two or Three of her tribe.

EFE KARANISOGLU

It might be my Western bias, but the two Turkish players in this series have the two hardest last names to pronounce of anyone who has applied in this series.

There is one thing that should be on Efe’s mind: Redeem the homeland of Turkey in SCWL. Umut suffered a huge blindside in SCWL 4 in the very first round. Efe needs to prove that Turkish players can get past the opening round. Luckily in a three tribe season there is a 66.6% chance of being successful.

I do see streaks of Umut judging by Efe’s early interactions. I see a lot of careful planning and manipulation into what he will be doing throughout the game.

It will be a go big or go home style of play. I think Efe will either go really far or maybe even match Umut’s performance.

LARRY CHIP CHILDRESS

He will be one of the most threatening players to win this season outside of Matt. I know Larry has a bit of experience in ORGs and likely  has a grapple of how to navigate the game socially. Some of the people in this cast are from Clark’s canceled Indonesia game, and therefore may already have a couple of key bonds. I assume Larry will use these advantages in addition to new ones that he is undoubtedly making right now.

But Larry also has this side to him that can be inactive from time to time. I really hope that side of him does not come out, or he will go home very early.

LYNDSAY SHERRY

I am not exactly sure what to expect with Lyndsay. Maybe because she shares the same name with the most frustrating player I have ever hosted in SCWL history. Yes, that Lyndsay spelt her name the same way too.

I think people will view her as a loyal soldier to recruit for their alliance. In reality she will be much more in control than everybody will be prepared for, and knowing that she has a relationship with Rudez, that could be a lethal 1-2 punch.

MARC ORIOL

He was the very first person to apply to play this game. It shows me that Marc will be dedicated to the game. I sense a winner’s game from Marc. However, there is one fatal flaw that could ruin Marc’s game–he does not have the best grapple of the English language. That may put him at a disadvantage in challenges, and perhaps at a disadvantage in interactions between a bunch of people from USA, Canada, and South Africa in this game where English is often a language that everyone can speak fluently online.

I should note Marc is our first player from Spain and has watched Survivor since 2009. He has only seen Survivor where being huge villains is rewarded in terms of the eye of the average viewer and in the eyes of Probst.

Hopefully his unique time zone and not being versed with American pop culture will not keep him segregated and prevent him making bonds in a six-person tribe. I sense that Marc will play an unorthodox game that others will not exactly know how to counter.

MATT WOLFF

Matt may have the greatest chance of anybody to win. He is sharp in terms of a sense of humour and seems like he will be able to get along with anybody. I do not expect him to drop the ball on many occasions throughout the game. I think Matt will understand how to deal with the other players, and his clear statement that he wants to participate leads me to believe that he is a lock for the merge.

MOISES MORENO

Moises comes off as somebody who will be a prime boot right before the merge/jury, and not because he is Mexican. Players who are 18 and younger in this series have a history of doing terrible. Nobody has broken that chain. It shocks me because 33% of all ORGers about ten years ago were sixteen years old. From there the other 33% were younger than sixteen and the remaining 33% were older than sixteen and had a life. Sixteen year olds were viewed as the most lethal players. I remember joining the ORG community when I was eleven and saw sixteen year olds just calling the shots and manipulating their way to victories virtually every other game.

Sorry, getting off track.

Moises was the last person to apply but appears to be one of the ones most eager to play. Will that help him get further? I do not know.

NICKOLAS DIVERDI

Nickolas I believe was interested in SCWL 5, but David Racine succeeded in recruiting him this go around. He was the very last one to qualify. This tells me that Nick intends to fly under the radar. Age wise he sits in the middle, activity wise in the group he sits in the middle, and I think overall he will not create waves. Nickolas will likely be apart of the dominant tribe. I feel like he will be a solid competitor in challenges and will get into the merge unnoticed.

This is the ideal format for Nick. Something tells me that making it to the top five or six is very possible for him.

ROB BRODEUR

If there is anyone who is a prime suspect as to who will pick up at least one idol, I would pick Rob. He seems to carry himself in the application answers. I sense a potential leader and contender for the title from Rob. I think he will be able to control the game from behind-the-scenes.

But if time comes for the merge, I could see him being removed from the game in an epic way. Time will tell with Rob.

RUDEZ MERKS

Very friendly. One of the few players in the series who comes off mildly flirtatious. We haven’t really had a flirtatious player since Ryan Huckla. She will have an easy time getting through the first half of the game, I believe. She will be too likable to keep around. However, I think her status as a friendly and well-liked player will backfire in the last three to four rounds of the game. She will be viewed as too much of a jury threat and sent home in fifth or sixth.

I will be surprised if Rudez goes early.

TIMOTHY ZAHRA

The youngest participant on this season. Apparently Timothy has been apart of the ORG community, but for whatever reason I have not noticed him. Nothing in his application really stands out. The youngest player each season rarely makes the merge. Timothy has been rather quiet since he applied and has not spoken up on the group page. Timothy will not be controversial enough to be the first boot from every tribe, but I assume will be the third or fourth boot of the game. He is the least likely person to make the merge.

TRAVIS RINDLER

He hosts his own games. No, not just online. Like uh real life games. Travis’ savvy style of gameplay will probably be unmatched as of day one. Along with Matt and Rob, I expect Travis to be in the merge.

One thing that troubles me is when we get down to seven or eight people. If I were the others, this would be a prime round to cut Travis. If Travis gets past the round of seven, he will win this game. But I do not see this being a cast of sheep and inactives at the end like SCWL 3. He will really need to put together the most loyal people together if he desires to win this tough tough tough game.

Will he go before merge? Psh, no.

WARREN ADAMS

I would like to point out that this is Warren’s third season in a row where he was interested in playing SCWL. I asked him in SCWL 4 where he was interested all the way to the last minute. In SCWL 5 I did not hear a word from him. Here we are and Warren is more than willing to play. He put an end to his long-standing ORG series that had THIRTY-SIX seasons, and now is back being active in the ORG circuit.

Hosting thirty-six seasons gives you a whole new outlook on how each player thinks and acts during a game. In fact Warren has probably hosted some of these players multiple times. I played in three of Warren’s games and finished 1st, 5th, and 1st. When I finished 5th it was after a double ejection of my alliance which left me dead in the water.

Sorry, getting off track again.

Will Warren achieve that same success? No.

I played with Warren in two games and in one game he was booted instantly and in the other he fell into an alliance where he was duped in sixth place. Warren needs to recognize when someone intends to dupe him and be willing to switch things up.

WILLIAM COOK

William is somebody who is 22 years of age, a Leo, and from the Okanagan. You know who else is 22, Leo, and from the Okanagan? Me! I have never met anybody in the ORG universe who is from the Okanagan before. We have had Jay from Richmond who is close to my birth city, or Dave from Calgary, but this is the first time that somebody is about a ninety minute drive away from me.

This is William’s first ORG. He has messaged me quite a bit to understand how ORGs work, and if William is as much like me as his application states, he is going to make a deep run into this game. As long as he socializes with others and participates, I think he will do just fine. William’s biggest problem may be that I do not think he will be a strategic leader in any alliance. And I hope he is on a tribe that dominates because it is very difficult to survive a TC in the three-tribe format if you have not formed close strategic understandings.

William is from a camp that has produced David Racine, Dave Bronson, Jeremy Bell, Marcelo Campos, and Moray James. History dictates with that camp that the ability to closely connect with others may lead to his biggest issues.

Overall, I largely do not know what to expect with this group other than I think it will be very competitive, and like what happens every season, some players will match up with my expectations while others will completely shock me. You never know how it will go down until you get on the battlefield to see things starting to unfold.

CAMERON MESSAGES ME AN HOUR BEFORE OPENING DAY ABOUT ADAM

For those of you who have been following this series, you know that I do the pre-season cast assessment about two to five hours before Opening Day begins. Also, the cast list has been posted roughly 24 hours before the start of the game since SCWL 4. It is something I have experimented with since SCWL 3.

As soon as I finished what I had to say about William Cook, I receive the first confessional of the game–from Cameron. And it was all about how Adam was overplaying with his huge number of alliances.

A player who is already called out for overplaying before the Opening Day challenge? For once, one of my pre-game predictions appears to be spot on.

ADAM EXPOSED INSTANTLY

And then it spread like an Okanagan wildfire. Dang. I have never seen a player come through this series and not only overplay his hand, but have his plans revealed to everyone in the cast. Wow. Whatever tribe he lands on will have a free pass at Tribal Council.

How in the world do you recover from sticking your neck out on day zero? The truth is that you can’t. Back when I was introduced to the ORG world and started reading episodes of games through Angelfire and Geocities (have I been a member of the Internet for that long?) and the player who is disturbing the peace like they are in Ludacris’ crew will almost always be first out if they do not win immunity.

If Adam does not win immunity, he will be out in a unanimous vote. Luckily this is a three tribe season. All he needs is a strong tribe in challenges and suddenly he will have time to have big players knocked out on other tribes while he gains necessary control of this game.

I cannot emphasize enough how I would watch this unfold and know Adam needs to win the first tribal immunity if he does not want to join a club that currently consists of Scott, Arun, Wesley, Jim, Umut, and Alex Isaac.

FOURTEEN PEOPLE SHOW UP TO OPENING DAY

There were more players from North America in this season than what is typically the norm. Two South Africans, a Turkish fellow, and an Aussie make up the rest of the cast. A lack of international players likely contributed to the high attendance.

Granted it does not trump the attendance from SCWL 4 where everyone showed up. SCWL 5 had around fourteen show up as well.

Opening Day is usually my favourite day of the game each season. I pick up much more information from the contestants, it gives me a taste of how the game will go, and I begin to identify each of the eighteen individual contestants.

As for the challenge itself, I decided to do a variation of the one from SCWL 3. We play a mini game. The winner is immune and everyone else votes a player out. The first round of voting went a bit sloppy because I was not receiving some of the messages as notifications, and I could never seem to keep up with the four minute time limit for each round of voting.

This challenge failed in SCWL 3 with record low attendance for Opening Day, and here in SCWL 6 the challenge somewhat failed with proper attendance as well.

The most entertaining part about this challenge that most people may forget are two things:

1) Travis votes for Cameron in every single dang round.

Cam may not know this, but Travis rogue voted for Cam in every round of this challenge. Cam only lost four or five of the mini games on Opening Day, but it became clear that Travis had zero desire to see Cam in power. Even though Cameron knew Travis was his biggest competition in the challenge, he assumed his alliance with Travis that began earlier in the day meant the feelings of loyalty were mutual.

2) The 1-1-1 vote for the captain’s slot.

My challenges have a reputation for having very specific and detailed rules. Particularly on Opening Day. But something happened that even if I spent twenty hours staring at this challenge that I would still not see it.

Yes, the infamous 1-1-1 vote. The Final Four of this challenge was Rob, Adam, Cameron, and Travis. After the season has played out, I am not surprised that a really odd situation occurred with them. I was left scratching my head at this scenario for a couple minutes.

Adam never voted for ten rounds of the challenge. He voted for Marc then watched a TV show with his friend for the next hour.
Rob won that round and was immune. He voted for Travis.
Cameron, who is currently loyal to Travis, decides to vote Adam.
Travis, who wants to get rid of Cameron at the first TC possible, votes against Cameron.

Since I outright said that not voting within four minutes simply meant a ‘no vote’ rather than a self-vote, we had a 1-1-1 tie.

I said in the case of a tie that all players involved in the tie would be eliminated to help speed up the challenge rather than waste more time with a tiebreaker scenario.

But this challenge needed two captains. The last nine eliminated players vote for who gets first pick in the draft. A 1-1-1 tie meant three out of the four remaining players would be eliminated.

I scrambled fast to come up with the fairest possible scenario. I began with giving Rob the first captain’s spot because he was the only one not eliminated.

So Rob is the Aspu captain.

As for who would be the Nlad captain? Well, since the 1-1-1 vote all canceled each other out, they would stay alive to fight for the second captain spot. The last two left standing would be voted by the last nine contestants to see who is the second captain.

I am personally amazed with myself for coming up with such a clean scenario within about two minutes.

Travis wins the challenge to cut Cam, and the jury goes back and forth before letting Travis be the captain. The majority was about to be for Adam but instant vote changes and others endorsed Travis as the Nlad captain.

TRAVIS RAGES ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO PICK A BOX

As we go to draft, Travis inquires about picking a box. I will get to the box twist later, but I said that the captains already receive a great reward in the form of having the first pick for their tribe and influencing the whole makeup of the tribe overall.

I would hear about this before, during, and after the draft. I already sensed that this would be a rough first round.

TRAVIS FAILS TO SEE THE REWARD OF BEING A CAPTAIN

Heh, my next headline at the time. I could not outright say how Travis can use the captain’s role to his advantage, but he failed to see how that is a much bigger reward than most of what is offered at the beginning of the game. A tribe’s success has been made from how the captain picks and shapes up the tribe in the opening round of play. Judging by Travis’ personality, I have a feeling he does not need an official captain’s title to be a leader of a tribe.

THE GAMBLER AND THE TIEBREAKER

Ah yes. Two new rewards debuting this season. Not much to say about these rewards yet except I thought they would be interesting minor elements to the game.

The Tiebreaker can be used during a challenge, and will automatically give your tribe/just you a victory in a challenge if you go to a tie. Your abilities rest on being able to figure out if that round’s challenge has a high chance of ending in a tie score.

The Gambler was a bit more experimental. You MUST use it after the merge, and you must use it before six players remain. You must figure out who will exactly beat you in a challenge, and the number of people who can beat you cannot exceed four.

It will be interesting to see how Matt and Lyndsay use these rewards.

PURPOSE OF DOING THREE TRIBES THIS WAY

Shortly after Opening Day on Friday, I posted that their first tribal immunity challenge was underway. Each person had five questions in their application that they were told would have their answers revealed publicly. Last season these answers came out before Opening Day. This season I made it into a tricky challenge.

There are eighteen slots for each question. Everyone’s answers are posted, but does not have an author assigned to them. Their goal is to figure out who said what. Highest score wins.

But the catch? Every 24 hours they will vote somebody out onto the third tribe, SuLa. Everybody knew there would be three tribes this season. I had about ten different ways to break them into three tribes. The simplest was to have three captains, but I thought whoever was the third captain would end up with crappy tribe members.

Remember in the SCWL Prequel how I had four tribes at the beginning, and two of the four tribes sucked because they had nobody good to pick in the first round? That’s why I avoided three captains.

So I thought that I would make the first tribal challenge to have three votes for each tribe to exile somebody onto the third tribe. In addition, I added the incentive of crucial clues to the final hidden immunity idol. I thought players who loved idols would volunteer as tribute, socially lacking players may be kicked out, or maybe even the weakest people in the group.

I was intrigued as to how it would play out, and thought the idea would be met with a lot of enthusiasm like myself and the viewers did.

MATT ACCUSES ME OF BEING DECEIVING

This is a mini sub-plot that plays out in the first few rounds. Players taking up issues with me, and throwing out accusations that I may be deceiving or manipulating the game. It is a bit funny to think about it now knowing how well the season recovered by the end, but hella annoying at the beginning.

If you have Rudez, Cameron, Rob, Travis, Matt, and Rob making alliances together before Opening Day and meeting for the first time. . .you can expect how quickly that explodes. I believe most of the anger directed at me early on was not with my hosting style per se, but because the players were left in such a foul and exhausted mood that anything in the game which played against their precise expectations would fuel the fire.

And Matt was at the front of that line in round one. Whether it be publicly or privately, Matt always had something to say about my hosting style at the beginning of the game. The thing I remember most is him publicly denouncing my twist of how to create three tribes.

The thing that puzzled me the most by the reaction is that I told everyone beforehand that there would be three tribes in the pre-merge phase. When I divided everyone up into two tribes on Opening Day, and hinted at a third tribe coming soon, I thought I was creating excitement and anticipation for the inevitable curveball. The curveball came and suddenly going into three tribes is viewed as a deception?

Between idol clues and the fact no one was being eliminated from the game made me think that it would be near impossible for a negative reaction. However, the huge personalities in this game fighting for control made this an issue that would not have existed in any other season.

NICK DISCOVERS THE SAD PUDDING ALLIANCE

Okay. Maybe this is the conflict I remember with Matt the most from round one.

The Sad Pudding Alliance will be a term I use a lot in these first few episodes so I should go ahead and explain it.

Prior to each season, the only pre-game bond I knew about was between Rudez and Lyndsay. They asked if that was against the rules. I chuckled and said no. Why? Because people suck at keeping quiet about pre-game bonds. The ORG community has such a large gossip network and an Internet resource that makes close bonds impossible to keep quiet. Much like in Big Brother in America, pre-game bonds are outed so quickly that you forgot it was a twist by round three or four.

The Sad Pudding alliance was withheld from me until day one. This consisted of Matt, DeAnna, and Rob. Three of them played in that vSurvivor game (yes, the host who posted online that his games have no such thing as “luck”) and had a cast the population of the Netherlands Antilles. Again, they were eliminated all in a row. Matt and DeAnna have a rather close bond outside of the game, and also have their own bond with Rob. Together they created Sad Pudding.

Between all of the conflicts players were having, and knowing that he was being screwed over for being connected to Adam by heading to SuLa, Nick posted proof of this trio from DeAnna’s Facebook page.

Because it was their first Facebook game, Sad Pudding cried foul. In other games, some hosts will pick multiple photos of their choice from your Facebook page. Heck, anyone who you friend request in an online game will be scanning your page for whatever information you have public because any information they have gives them an advantage down the road.

Due to Sad Pudding not disclosing their pre-game bonds to others, it was inevitable that somebody would dig it up and post for all to see.

Usually when it comes to info obtained from a player’s page, this proof spreads privately between alliances and members of the cast. This is the first time in SCWL where somebody held the proof and posted it for everyone to see as if to say “I don’t care that you know that we all know”.

The reaction from Sad Pudding was to eject Nick from the game. Matt publicly announced that he was going to call the police and get them involved.

Since I did not know Matt well enough, I thought he was serious. My game being dragged into police involvement? The only officer I want in my games is Gloria Query, and that is more than enough on my plate.

As soon as this occurred everyone was on Nick’s side. Police involvement for information that was accessible to the other contestants?

For anyone who has played an ORG with me, I typically do not allow too many ORG players to have access to my status updates. They are usually players who I have known for several years, and I do not usually post sensitive information on my page anyway.

My stance is “if you post it on Facebook, then you have to be prepared for the remote possibility that it could be posted elsewhere”. I have been on the Internet since I was nine years old. And as you can probably guess, I have spent a significant percentage of my life on it. I have seen some messed up crap go down over the years.

In short, Nick was not going to be ejected, but due to the huge storm of chaos during these few days, I posted a warning for all players to avoid posting photos of other players in a group that consists of nearly 200 viewers and alumni. Posting it publicly for all to see comes off as a way to push buttons rather than as a strategic move.

WAS DEANNA ANGRY ABOUT PRIVACY OR THE ALLIANCE BEING REVEALED AGAINST HER WILL?

DeAnna’s reaction was equally strong to Matt’s. This is the question I still cannot quite answer for myself. Because, again, 90% of the people were on Nick’s side. But half of Aspu was appalled by Nick’s actions. If this happened to another player would Sad Pudding be upset? And would Sad Pudding be as upset if it was a move that did not jeopardize their position in the game?

The whole issue with the photo being posted publicly may be the biggest grey area when it comes to this series. There is a certain unspoken rule that it would be frowned upon, but I think Matt threatening with involvement of the police is what pushed this to a lengthy discussion.

Internet privacy is never a comfortable subject to deal with, but there may be something in the rulebook for the future so it can be dealt with more clearly in the next several seasons.

Yeah. This is what I had to put up with in round one. 😛

TRAVIS RALLIES THE PERFECT PEOPLE

During Opening Day, Travis picked Rudez. She picked Cam. Cam picked Matt. All strong-willed people, and seemed to have a tight group of their own. Clearly, Travis thought of this as trouble. He has been finding a way to boot Cam, and him having two supporters may be the best three voteouts for the challenge.

So he gathers up Warren, William, Moises, Angel, and Corey into an alliance. As soon as this formed I knew that Travis would be the head of the dragon, and an additional scheme would go along with it. So out goes Cam then Rudez. Matt is bound to follow, right?

MATT HELD HOSTAGE

Nope. Travis wants to keep Matt as a possible challenge competitor, but as an easy first boot who cannot access three clues for the final idol. Therefore, Corey is the unfortunate person who must take one for the team as he heads to SuLa.

I felt bad for Corey as he joined SuLa. Cameron and Rudez would be on one side while Nick was in his own island for the time being. Larry was being Larry, which meant Corey better start hunting for that final idol. The only reason why Larry has more stock at this point is that him and Cam were both voted out in the first round of the challenge.

PROBABLY A MISTAKE TO SEND CAMERON TO SULA–HE IS NEVER A LEADING THREAT BUT WILL WORK HARD

Travis was trying to screw over Cameron from the time the cast list was announced. Meanwhile Cameron was fully loyal to Travis. I thought at the time that Travis would regret this down the road. Cameron won a lot of the mini games, actively participates, and seeing how he did not know Travis was sending his votes during Opening Day, he would probably be easier to string along.

What was it about Cam that rubbed Travis the wrong way from the beginning? I do not know.

CAMERON WILL HAVE THE RECORD FOR MOST CONFESSIONALS IN A SINGLE ROUND

Several confessionals from the moment the cast list was announced and that did not stop through to the end of the round. This is Cameron’s first game. I am aware of how eager new players to ORGs can be. What I sensed from Cameron’s confessionals is that he is too quick to react to every little move being made.

If Cameron can be more patient to react or discard information that is unnecessary when it comes to the game, he could really settle in and be a dominating force. However, if he continues down his current path, he may find himself out of this game quick.

THE TRIBAL IDOLS WILL BE TOUGH

Because two tribes take home immunity in most of the challenges this season, I thought first place needs a reward to set themselves apart from second place. This made it the ideal way for idol clues to be passed out this season. If your tribe finished first, your tribe received a clue to the idol at camp.

SuLa won the first challenge which meant everyone received one-sixth of a link to a YouTube video that told them how to claim the idol.

So this season the dilemma with the idol at your camp is if you are willing to give up your fragment of the code.

And the tribal idol does you no good if you can never finish first in a challenge.

THE FINAL IDOL WILL BE EQUALLY RIDICULOUS

We have gone back to an elaborate puzzle that was prevalent during SCWL 1-3. In a field of newbies and sophomores, I am curious what up and coming genius can solve these clues.

ADAM TAKES HIS BALL AND GOES HOME BECAUSE THINGS DO NOT GO THE WAY HE WANTS IT TO

During the challenge, Adam self-voted and begged to go to SuLa. It was clear that his tribe with the exception of Marc had turned against him. However, Aspu intentionally decided not to send him because they did not want him finding an idol, and wished to boot him before he could do any damage.

Because he overplayed his hand and had no other friends left in the game, including being blocked by multiple players, Adam quit.

Funny thing is that he got his wish by being sent to SuLa hours after he quit. Granted, Aspu only did this because he had announced his decision to quit publicly, but still, funny end to the story.

I should note Marc would have joined SuLa if Adam had not quit. Instead Marc is the new low man on the Aspu totem pole.

Tragically, this is not the first time that somebody had quit before the end of the first challenge. In SCWL 3, Nick R. showed up online halfway through a challenge and decided he wanted to be outside during the summer. Of course this hiatus lasted only two to three weeks before he signed up for other games as his alliance in SCWL 3 went down one-by-one because of his quit. 😛

THE DECISION BEHIND CANCELING TC

Normally, we always have a TC even if a player quits prior to Tribal Council being posted.

However, the chaos between Opening Day, the tribal immunity challenge going horrendously, the Sad Pudding photo, players blocking each other, and Adam directly screwing over another tribe by quitting, I decided to cancel TC.

I thought it would give everyone time to recover from Hurricane Adam. I sure as heck did not want an additional person going home because of Adam’s actions.

The question is if the game will now run smoothly?

THE CHALLENGE WAS SUPPOSED TO GO REALLY SMOOTH ON PAPER AND BE A GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE

LESSON LEARNED–ALWAYS HAVE A COOPERATIVE CHALLENGE IN THE FIRST ROUND

Between the elimination challenge on Opening Day, perhaps a challenge that has an individual element to it may not have been the best choice.

It is strange because for the past three seasons I have had a challenge for individual immunity at each camp -before- the tribal challenge, but for some reason mixing in tribal immunity with an individual task was too much for this group to handle. Was it the strong personalities of the players or was it the conditions of this challenge that made things get so out of hand?

I don’t know, but I doubt I will do a tribal challenge that has an individual element in round one again anytime soon.

I should note that the tribal immunity challenge did not go smoothly because people tried to send the results for their guesses as individuals, and waited until minutes before the deadline or just an hour or two before the deadline to ask questions critical to the challenge’s gameplay. By the time I could log online, the deadline had passed and it was too late.

Actually, players expecting me to be online 24/7 will be a source of conflict for the first few rounds of this game. I remember Aspu was furious that I did not correct them with 30 minutes to go in a 72 hour challenge while Nlad had only Rudez’s public answers but thought sending it in privately would be fine.

I remember how SuLa was the only tribe who did the challenge properly, and listened when I said that the challenge was all about when to time posting your guesses.

SuLa won the clues by default, Rudez won the challenge for a tribe she wasn’t even on anymore, and Marc is saved on Aspu due to me canceling TC.

SOMEBODY POTENTIALLY BEING VOTED OUT THREE TIMES IN SIX ROUNDS COULD HAVE BEEN BRUTAL

If SuLa lost the challenge, one of them would have been voted out of Opening Day, the tribal immunity challenge, and Tribal Council. Chances are it would have been Cameron or Rudez.

I TALKED MATT AND NICK OUT OF QUITTING

You can pretty much guess why. During the first round I felt lucky to have seventeen people agreeing to remain in the game.

NO WAY MATT MAKES THE MERGE

a) He has already expressed his displeasure with me
b) He is fighting with his new alliance members like Rudez, and threatening other players like Nick to the point that he seems like a loose canon.
c) He is being held hostage on a tribe just so they get the satisfaction of voting him out
d) I assumed he was going to quit any day

Matt is in a truly terrible position. I thought the only question was if he would leave pre-merge by quitting or by being voted out.

I CAN SEE WHY ROB AND DEANNA/SAD PUDDING ALLIANCE FAILED IN VSURVIVOR–THEY REALLY ARE VERY EXCLUSATORY

Is that a word? I don’t know. But the vibe I got from Rob, DeAnna, and Matt is that they are very much on their own. Between the photo controversy and other opinions, it felt like they were perfectly fine with their own world while not knowing how to interact outside of it.

I could be wrong, but that is the exact wording of the headline that I typed here in round one.

LITTLE BOXES ON THE HILLSIDE–NOT INSPIRED BY WEEDS

Yeah, that was a disaster. As players were eliminated from the Opening Day challenge, they were supposed to pick up a box whenever they liked. They could do it that second or wait several weeks. Sometime after Opening Day I revealed the rewards over the two days.

Between Travis’ complaint and the odd reveal during the middle of a tribal challenge, the twist in handing out rewards this year did not pan out as I expected.

WHY GIVING INDIVIDUAL IMMUNITY TO SOMEBODY ON THE OPPOSING TRIBE IS A LEGAL MOVE IN THE REAL SURVIVOR

At the end of this episode we see Cameron giving his individual immunity reward from a box to Matt. That means Nlad’s hostage is safe from the first Tribal Council.

Obviously questions and outrage from the other people on Nlad flooded in.

“HOW CAN YOU DO THAT?! THEY DON’T DO THAT ON THE REAL SURVIVOR! ONLY IDOLS!”
“YOU’RE SCREWING US OVER!”

Allow me to explain.

Individual idols have been transferred on the real Survivor not only between people on the same tribe, but given to people on the opposing tribe.
Tribal immunity have been transferred on the real Survivor.
So why have we never seen individual talismans transferred? Because there has only been Survivor: Micronesia and Survivor: Gabon where that has even been possible. And that was for only a couple episodes in each of those two seasons. Therefore, no one thinks it is legal. But if you follow the golden rule of “as long as whoever posseses it agrees to give it up, there are no issues”.

So that is why Matt was able to receive immunity from Cameron. I thought that was a bad move because I am expecting Cameron to be voted out upon SuLa’s first trip to TC.

And that’s it for episode one. Wait, “that’s it”? More like “could any more other freakin’ things happen in the space of four days?”

This is the ugliest episode in the history of SCWL. Now I have a migraine from re-living it.

6.1C Confessionals

CONFESSIONALS ROUND 1

ADAM,

Confession #1

I’m on an island with drunks!!!! Unbelievable!!! Love _____ but they f—ed up big time with the first vote on the other tribe this first round. Omg!! The aspu just hit the fan!!!!

Next vote to leave – ROB I wanna stay and poo some more

*******SELF VOTING to go to tribe 3 please. Thanks!!!******

It’s way too toxic in there Logan. The game hasn’t even started yet and the amount of stuff happening is insane. It’s not even fun at this point. I’m sorry.

Half these people don’t talk, the other half are quite sickening. It’s not an environment for me. I’m sorry.

I left the group Buddy. I’m sorry. You clearly do a great job – congrats. But between the Travis stuff and the Cameron stuff and this latest stuff – in 2 days – that’s not normal. Sorry.

ANGEL,

i’m voting to send cameron to the 3rd tribe

I’m voting to send rudez to the third tribe.

CAMERON,

Logan is a son of a bitch, I’ll tell you that.

I mean… MY ASS!
Travis it is I guess.
Well! My alliance is clearly the best alliance!
Wow. I’m glad that Travis was smart enough to spell out exactly what we were playing for. Cause now, if things go right, he gets to vote out Adam.

And he can go to hell.
Now here’s my bind. Travis and I are just now in a tribe-hopeful alliance. But Travis voted me out for his sake, and I still have the bond with Adam. Either way… I guess I’m voting for Travis.
i just hope Trav isn’t gonna f— me.
Or if he does, he uses lube and a condom.
Rob and Travis are the captains. Would you look at that. The funny thing is that I’m not sure either of them have my best interests at heart. Can you believe that in Survivor people don’t care how far I go?
I thought Adam was the one who overplayed, but I was wrong. So much for playing it like Natalie.
More like playing it like Zane.

And Deanna chooses Lyn. Of all the people in the world she chooses, no, all the people out of us, she chooses my second-in-command. Now I just hope Lyn will pick me.
And then Rudez picks me. My worst fear is realized. I’m on a tribe with Rudez and Travis.
Alone. With no Matt.
*with no Lyn
f—, you don’t get how much I didn’t want to pick Matt. Matt was the caveat I gave Rudez for what was to be our TRIBE OF 6
and now I’m stuck with him, Travis, and Rudez.
Lyn is over there.
God… I can’t believe this twist. I can’t believe this twist.

My best hope right now is to stick with Moishe and Angel, in case Rudez really is a double agent with Matt and Travis. It depends.
I think no matter what I can always swing Angel and Moises.
If not, we get to the final 6 of our tribe and we vote out Angel.

Either way, I’m at the bottom of the top of the totem pole. I can just sense it. There’s a reason Rudez picked Matt and Travis.
All I can hope is that Nlad can survive and I can make it to the merge with Lindsay and… sigh… Adam.
*mutters obscenities under breath*

okay, so… prepare for me to be your most unreliable narrator yet. Because goddamn how fast this game changes.
I talked to Travis. He actually seems to trust me. Well, at least as far as Survivor goes. We talked a bit about ourselves, and he’s very happy about where we are; in a majority on a tribe with each other. We talked about all kinds of things. It turns out we’re both bipolar, for one, so that’s interesting. And he’s been in 90 different ORGs over 10 years. I was still in 4th grade when he started. He’s learned pretty well by now how to play, which makes him a threat, but also a mentor.
However, that puts me into a bind
because Adam is still connected to me. As it turns out the rule change benefited me because I could get away with the tribe I chose, but Adam is still keeping on my side, telling me things. He’s still my earliest alliance and my backup plan, so I told him things he needed to know. Now, I’m realizing I’m a swing vote between two cross-tribe alliances, and that’s before factoring in people like Angel and Moises on the outside.
This might seem good to some people, but I feel like an idiot for letting it get this out of hand. I didn’t really want to be in the spotlight in that manner where I’m damned if I do, damned if I don’t. I just wanted to be safe. My biggest hope is that one alliance gives me a reason to flip, so I’ll be able to save face. It’s just a matter of time before this blows up in my face.

Awesome, I got a curse. Glad to see that I need one more making me feel uneasy in this game. At the very least, I got exactly what I guessed I would.

So. I feel like I’m finally in a place where I can be mildly confident. In Nlad, I’m happy with where I stand. People trust me, they take me somewhat seriously, but I don’t feel like top dog. Rudez is great, Travis is great, Moises is great, Matt is better than expected, Angel is pretty cool, even Warren is good. We have an easy first boot in William, and Warren/Corey are also on the outs. It’s just a matter of lasting until the first dissolve, and that’s likely going to be sooner than later. The more connections I make, the better.
I also think I’m going to officially sever ties with Adam down the road. Rudez is quite opposed to working with him, but I was able to spin our split into something last minute in Adam’s eyes. Therefore, I can use him to keep tabs on the other tribe, and to keep Lyndsey, my other ally, safe. Whether or not he knows I’m playing him I cannot say; for all I know he could be playing me, but he’s been very consistent with me. He thinks that I think I’m guaranteed final 2 with him, and I don’t think I’m guaranteed that at all with him as much as his three other #2s from his three other alliances. For now, I’ll use him for myself as long as possible and feed him whatever he needs to hear.

Look to the positive things, Cameron, the positive side. 1) If I get thrown on tribe 3, I get idol clues and new friends. 2) I know my answers. I think. 3) I can learn more about other people. 4) I think I can keep in my core strong enough to keep myself here where I’m needed. 5) I think Corey is volatile and this is the best way to sneak him off. 6) Ugh god damn it Logan

So. That whole “I should totally play under the radar thing?” Way to f—ing blow it a day in, Cameron.
On Nlad, I’m having conversations with Travis about what I think it should be over there, the tribe of six we’re left with and the 3rd tribe. And he seems to be agreeing. But I thought Travis was the leader of the tribe and alliance. I certainly didn’t mean to be. But if by some freak chance my recommendations actually work… I’m controlling our tribe… whoops.
If I’m just being paranoid, I’m just being paranoid. Now that I’ve made my decision on the Adam thing, I’m trying to be confident. But I know that if there’s one thing you have to do in Survivor, it’s to give up your pride. Accept a 2nd or 3rd in command if it’s given to you, but if you can tell it’s going south, break it off without feeling bad. However, I jump the gap between letting go of my pride and straight up bitchslapping myself sore.
I dunno what you’re thinking, whether you’re slapping your forehead or you think I’m onto something. Nonetheless, I hope I’m providing you with a show.

Travis told Adam I’m the leader of Nlad. F—

I cannot believe. The f—ing balls. That Adam has.
He flat out told me he wants me to put people on his tribe that he needs
and then to throw challenges so his tribe never goes to tribal.
Is he f—ing high? Is he insane? Is he any combination of words that would never pass the censors? He thinks he can tell me that and that I’ll just say yes to it?
Well I did.
To his face, at least. Like I was actually going to say, “No, Adam, I won’t do that, because that is stupid.”
But Adam is a noose around my neck
and I think once he relinquishes control on the 11 other people he’s playing it’ll be a whole new game.
If he wants to go onto tribe 3
I will damn sure put people on tribe 3
that I need to be on tribe 3.
Odds are I won’t win, because it’s my first time, and I’m not that good.
But if I outlast Adam, then I’ll be okay.

Adam. You f—ing idiot.
You’re f—ing in bed with literally the entire cast
and you decide to alienate your entire alliance
newsflash, dummy, your alliance is EVERYONE.

…you know, if I end up biting it hard, my comments are going to look so horrible.
But I’m glad I split from Adam. Talking with Matt Wolff, the entire game mutually agrees that Adam is full of s— and they’re going to hinder him.
It’s what gets me ahead that matters.

Travis revealed that Adam Kolodny just attacked him on a personal level.
Travis felt like Adam was flirting with him because Travis is gay, even though Adam himself is not.
Travis asked him to stop
and that opened a can of worms.
And now AdKol flipped out on him
in a level that Travis has been left really unsettled.
And I’ll be the first to admit; their split benefits me massively. But that’s not the point for now. If AdKol hurt him that badly, that’s not okay.
I feel for the guy.
But then I feel bad. Because I just formed an alliance with Rudez, and we plan to use Angel and Moises to vote him out, because it’s all but confirmed that Travis and Matt have connections on the other side.
Other than Lyn, I mean.
We’re leaning towards ditching the dead weight of Corey/Will/Warren
and putting them on a tribe with whoever is from over there.
They might do so badly that they never win and Ulong it
or they surprise us, and one of the other two goes home.
Efe and I have immunity, so we can’t be sent home. And thank god, cause now I realize I could use it.
As a team, we’re set. And I think I’m finally in our groove.

Thinking about it though… I know Adam. At least I thought I did. We’re buddies in Previously on Survivor. And he always struck me as a lovable goof. I didn’t think he could be this hateful to perfect strangers.
If Travis is being legit, and being of a sexual minority myself I feel an obligated need to believe he is.
It’s really sad what a game can bring out of people. I mean, it’s not like there’s an actual prize. It’s a game for the sake of being a game. There’s not as much to lose, quite frankly.
Are bragging rights really worth your character? And for that matter, who will vote for someone willing to sacrifice their character unnecessarily for the sake of a game?

I just initiated a “Leadership Retreat” between myself and Rudez, and Rob and DeAnna. We’ve decided mutually on the tribe of 6 we want to forum. It’d be best for both of us to load it with as much empty s— as possible so we can stay ahead. It’s risky, but if it works, we’re golden.

I’m actually surprised, but I’m impressed.
It was a 6-3 vote against me.
And my game? Yeah, it’s probably up.
I can survive this vote, but I won’t be long for it, I’m sure.

And you know what? This is exactly it. This is exactly why I shouldn’t be confident. I’m just cursed, I guess.

You must be so very amused by this all, aren’t you?

Haha, well I promise you I’ll make it as fun as I can. Truth be told, I didn’t expect to win. No one really does in their first go-around, especially with a mind as autistically-overactive as mine.

Also, Logan, I know you’re gonna have a ball editing the irony of me playing up how much Adam is overplaying and then being tossed out of my tribe for overplaying. So go ahead. I won’t be mad.

I’ve been talking to the others until just now. Rob and DeAnna have been sympathetic. Rudez and Matt didn’t flip. Everyone else on Nlad flipped, and I understand why. I overplayed in the wrong areas and underplayed in the wrong areas. Textbook, you know.
At the very least, I said I’d outlast Adam, and I very much might be able to.

Since I’m up, I’ll dish on the other contestants. Rob and DeAnne: I think they’re the power couple over on Aspu. We chatted a lot tonight. They’re sympathetic, understanding, and funny. And they’re doing their best to keep Adam under their control. It’s definitely working, too.
Nick: He’s over here next. No read on him. Sort of empty.
Warren: More than I gave him credit for. And I’m glad for it. He’s a good guy.
William: He exists! And he’s nice too.
Corey: The macguffin behind my demise. Apparently Corey was someone that Travis really wanted to have around. Pretty chill.
Rudez: She’s probably my closest ally in the game. A nice, trusting person whom I hope is going to be over here next. Or at least, be all right over there.
Moises: I vastly underestimated/misread him. I thought he’d be UTR and he’d listen to me. He totally didn’t. The fact that my two soldiers, the ones I thought would totally be on board, weren’t, and were instead played by Travis, was brilliant, because I was totally going to use them to vote him out.
Angel: Same.
Matt: Matt deserves all my love. He stood up for me after Travis betrayed me, deliberately risking his place in the game to chew Travis out. He got out all the aggression I was feeling better than I could have. I thought he and I would be rivals in this game, and that I couldn’t trust him. I didn’t think he’d be my closest ally.
Travis: An enigma. He says he just wants to chill with others on his 91st ORG, but then flips the game on his head and pisses everyone off, fracturing the alliance we built… for the sake of doing that. I won’t even get into the logistics of the Adam/Travis fight and what others are saying about it. But he’s a piece of work. He’s overplaying just like Adam and I have. The difference is, he’s on top, Adam’s on the bottom, and I’m exiled with Larry “The Corpse” Chip.
Efe: From our chats, he seems nice enough.
Lyn: my first ally, and the one I hope stays safest. I should have sensed trouble the second Travis voted me out in the reward challenge.
But Lyn is a sweet person. She’s a bit hesitant to piss people off, and it might hinder her, but now that things with Adam have fallen south, I think it’s bought her some time, and I think people will trust her.
Marc: No read on him either.
Timothy: I had to look up the cast just to remember him but he’s younger than I am! That should be fun. Apparently he’s on his way over here… that or kick-Cameron-while-he’s-down-day has still continued.
But yeah, I think that’s everyone.
Oh, and Adam. F— him.

The one thing I really hope doesn’t happen is that people think I’m a bad guy. I’m careless, sure. I’ve made mistakes and I’ve inadvertently made people think I don’t care about them. That’s not the impression I meant to make, with Warren, Travis, Moises, any of them. I’m just a kid looking at posters and trying to imitate the big leagues. I’m not that good, but I try, and sometimes it doesn’t work out to me.
Regardless, I hear that they’re treating Rudez and Matt really badly over there, deliberately. And I feel really bad, because they’re good people, and they’re being punished for my mistakes. All six of us participated in our alliance and all it stood for, and I think they deserve credit for sticking to loyalty for all six of us, not ridicule for being the only ones not to flip.

Other than my own self-consciousness? Nope. I’m making it better for me by making it better for others. I hate how hateful people have gotten and the ones who have stuck by me deserve better.
I might ignite big things in the Nlad tribe tomorrow. I’m going to have to resort to blackmail for the good of my friends.
The plan is to use my II necklace to make Nlad send Matt over. If they don’t, my last ally is safe and their tribe alliance must eat itself.

I think the thing that has been the hardest for me this game has been the impact it’s had on my own self-consciousness. Aspies can, by nature, generally be very much unaware of how others perceive them. Sometimes it takes a harsh reality check to make them realize it. But then, in my case, I go the other way, and I judge myself too harshly, too constantly, because I don’t want to be humiliated again.
In the same breadth, Travis giving me compliments and, outside of the game, being very emotionally real with me, turning into Travis removing me from the tribe because I was a nuisance and a bother to the game, has left me even further paranoid than before. I wish I could shut it off, have a drink, let it go, but it’s hard to. Now anytime I get a compliment from Matt, Rudez, Rob, DeAnna, etc., I’m waiting for the shoe to drop. The trap door to open. And that is not a fun thing to go through.

COREY,

I vote cameron to go to other tribe

2nd tribe vote , < RUDEZ

Confessional (challenge 1) EPISODE 1 – WOW!!! tHAT ALL I REALLY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE START OF THIS GAME. I was away from my laptop for 2 days so i wasnt able to really keep up with the fights and drama that went on. Its actually a great thing i wasnt around or iwould of probably been in the middle of it. As far as the assessment of the other players and my tribe mates on nlad , I like this group of players. I was involved in an early alliance with , CAMERON ,ADAM , RUDEZ , ROB , but thats all gone lol. Im pretty sure ive built some trust with travis, angel , willaim , , I FEEL LIKE IM REALLY CLOSE WITH RUDEZ BUT its still early and I’ll need to play this slow especially with alot of people already targets for the 1st few votes. this is a cast with so many new players so ill need to make sure they dont know how many games ive played and not be too strategic too early. tHE ONLY THING IM WORRIED ABOUT is the players i think i can trust might have already made there bedsin this game.

DEANNA,

I am assuming this is how we send in confessionals?

Confessional #1: I am currently in 3 alliances. Woooh Nelly! So where does my allegiances lie?

My main alliance is with Matt and Rob. We are Team Sad Pudding. It was born out of the VSurvivor game and since then we have become friends. They are the onea who convinced me to sign up here to play. I will never betray these two.

My second alliance is with Lyndsay. We pulled in Rob, Efe, and Tim for a solid 5. We are working on Marc to be our 6th.

My last alliance is with Adam. However odds are he is going to be voted out sooner rather than later. He is playing all sides, making alliances with literally everyone and is seriously overconfident. He sent me a message yesterday meant for Nick where he was talking about how Nick shouldn’t talk to me or Lyndsay. Red flag. Also, everything he has said to Rob and Matt has gotten back to me inclusing how the girls are clueless. We’re really not.

I believe the first boot is going to be Larry. It is pretty much unanimous at this point. However, this is Survivor and things change all the time.

I am worried about the upcoming 3 tribe twist and I am curious how it will effect my game. I am trying to work it into my plans but there is no way to tell at this moment.

I wish Matt was on our tribe, but with a potential mutiny/tribe switches I am sure it will happen eventually.

Lastly, thank you for putting this altogether. I think this is going to be a lot of fun!

Confessional #2: Strategy.

Since the challenge was announced I feel like I have done nothing but strategize. I think I even dreamed about it.

As an alliance we decided that Adam had to stay. I know he wants to go, but we can’t let jim near the idols. Also, he is a great boot if we loose the challenge. (Sorry, Adam. I saw the chart you drew for Cameron. Matt showed me. No one can trust you)

Not only that, I got Adam to ask for volunteers. Larry did. Sweet deal. Then I came up with a plan to convince Marc to volunteer. We will send him to get the idol, make a 4 person alliance and rejoin us at merge. It worked, perfectly. Better than I hoped! Now this just means Nick and Adam will be pissed. That I can deal with.

When I found out who was being sent from the other tribe, I started talking game with Warren. He is on the outs in his tribe. I convinced him that it is ok that he is going. That he can work with us at the merge, and that he better find the idol.

If I can coordinate Marc and Warren to work together then it will be perfect.

I can’t wait to see everything play out!

Also, I vote: Larry

Confessional #3: Bedtime Notes

Tonight has been insane. With Cameron going home, Aspu has been watching the chaos unfold, and trying to capitalize on it.

With Cameron posting Adam’s picture, we can now “confront” Adam on playing all sides. He went into damage control mode really really fast. So fast that he soon hit orbit-levels of damage control.

Rob was hearing none of it, and didn’t placate him, and because of it Adam went a little cray-cray. He started messaging all of us begging us to vote out Rob. He started telling me that Rob cannot be trusted and is causing chaos in our tribe. He even went so far as to tell me Rob hates dogs, which is not true. Rob has an adorable dog named Snoopy, and just because I told Adam that I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t like dogs, he is trying to manipulate me into voting Rob, using my love of dogs against me.

Unfortunately for Adam, Rob and I are close and we’re friends and I know he has my back 100%. GO TEAM SAD PUDDING!

Tonight I also convinced Nick to give me his answers to the challenge. Tomorrow we are voting him out. It’s too bad he didn’t talk to anyone – he can blame Adam for that. Adam told him not to talk to me or Lyndsay, and that really screwed his game.

Since this is a confessional, I feel slightly responsible for Cameron getting voted out. Knowing they were sending out Warren, I went to him in the hopes to get numbers post merge. I told him he was going, and apparently that riled him up. He told me tonight that he turned the tables on his own fate, sealing the fate of the people in charge.

OOOPS. Cameron: I never, never thought that would happen. That is why I am working so hard to make it up to you. If I can keep you safe until merge, I will, if only to make up for this guilt I feel for being partly responsible for the chaos tonight.

This might also have caused Matt’s game to explode. If they boot him, I’m going to be pissed. At least I will have learned to remember that all actions have consequences.

There has been so much to happen, but I need to sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a long day.

Are players allowed to take personal messages from your facebook page and post them in the group? That seems like it would be against the rules.

Maybe it is just a loop hole, or a clarification, but I would definitely like to know.

I feel violated. I would never, ever do something like that to any of these people. Especially over a GAME? Sure, say we are friends. But posting personally messages, that leaves a really really bad taste in my mouth.

Confessional #4: After A Good Night’s Sleep…. I feel much better. I can’t even begin to start with how upset I was. I honestly don’t give a crap if people know Matt and I are together, but the people mocking me on the thread? I’m ignoring it now, but I guess they get to live priviledged lives where their parents are not insane, and in the case of my mother, actually tried to kill my sister. I guess they don’t have to live in a world where their mother makes fake facebook accounts to track them down. The last time being in July. She is about due for another stalking. So yes, Nick’s actions scared me and possibly put me in real life danger. At least my alliance knows, and they understood and were incredibly supportive. I guess all I have to say to the people out there is just think before you speak – or act.

Onto more of a game talk. I think my alliance of Rob-Lyndsay-Efe-Timothy are going to go with a Misfits type name. We are working on it. If nothing else with this Adam situation, it has bonded us. When Adam was not talking game, I enjoyed speaking with him, but then he would start with his crazy manipulations and I had no desire to deal with that. Him having a temper tantrum and leaving over essentially him not getting his way is ridiculous. Tim is 15 years old and is WAY more mature than Adam. I really hope that his quitting will help him realize that he needs to take calm down, and take a deep breath sometimes. This is just a game.

Due to Adam’s quitting our alliance is now keeping Marc. I confronted Marc today asking why he voted for Adam. His response was about how Adam asked him to, and how he needed to stay good with Nick. Marc, dear Marc. That is not a good strategy. If you don’t have the numbers, don’t flip. All you have done is secure your spot on the bottom of the Aspu tribe. If or when we loose a challenge, you will be going home.

The Misfits have also struck an alliance with Cameron and Rudez. We have decided to work together, and hopefully if can all make it to merge than they will join up with us and ideally, we will have the numbers to take this game home. We have shared our challenge answers with them – essentially assuring that both of our tribes win tonight. I hope that we will be able to collaborate on future challenges as well and hopefully this will prove to keep our alliance strong.

I worry that come merge that Cameron and Rudez will know they would be the bottom of the alliance. At that time I will need to make a deal with them. Taking Rob, Lyndsay, Cameron, Rudez and myself to the final 5. Basically making Lyndsay the swing vote. This is assuming the plan to get Matt onto Sula does not work. Or that he does not make it to merge. If he does, that changes a lot.

I am constantly thinking and strategizing about how to get us to the top of the game, but still not trying to make too many steps in advance. Sometimes it is the baby steps that take us the farthest – a lesson that Adam needs to learn.

I am excited to see how everything is going to play out tonight. Will Nlad crumble with Matt having the immunity idol? Will they cave and send him to Sula? If this was being aired, I would be counting down the hours until the episode started.

EFE,

Confession: The game begin and I am getting good vibes from so many people. Especially Lyndsay, Rudez, DeAnne they are all great people. Also Adam who is now in our tribe constantly creating new imaginary alliances like it’s his hobby. At first I thought he is a person that I could work with but now I don’t think I will. We come up with a 5 ppl alliance including me Lyndsay DeAnne Tim and Rob. I kinda trust everybody except Rob he needs a little more time. DeAnne is a good stratagizer and I personally believe that people who loves dogs does no harm Lysnday and I also have a close relation and I get along well with Timoo. We also had a fake alliance with Marc and we will send him over other tribe hopefully he comes back with a idol ( I don’t think we managed to convince him tough). In fact, I like Marc too so it’s nice to have options.

Vote: Larry He is Inactive…

Vote: Nick

Vote change. Adam

LARRY,

NONE.

LYNDSAY,

Voting Larrry

Voting Nick

MARC,

CONFESSIONAL DAY 3 I’m happy with the tribe I fell in because I know most of my mates and I get along with them. Now it is time to step number one: Being communicative and active. They must see me as a friendly and trustful person so I would not look like a plant and they want to get rid of me. I must go step by step. It is very important to choose well to those who are going to be my allies in the game. I have some first impressions already but I must be careful.

What’s exactly a final hidden immunity idol? Why it is called “final”? How powerful is that idol? Remember I’m a foreigner, so explain me that as if I was a 5 year old child, please. Thank you XD.

VOTE: Larry For being the least active person, and hopefully you won’t find the HII.

VOTE: Nick That’s the plan. Probably is better sending you to Sula instead of Adam.

VOTE: Adam That’s the plan of the tribe.

MATT,

First confessional. Sad Pudding. Sad Pudding was born out of that terrible vSurvivor game. I was being accused of being too loud, so I said I’d be quiet, sit in the corner, and eat sad pudding. Waste Management, the 4 person alliance that was myself, DeAnna (my fiancee), Rob, and our friend Martin took that as a private rallying cry. We got voted out of vSurvivor but Sad Pudding is alive and well in this new game with myself, De, and Rob as a secret final 3 alliance. We’re on separate tribes for now, but we have plans for the merge.

First exile vote: Corey

Second exile: Rudez

History is wonderful but it doesn’t say anything about present. As I said, this was a flawed setup. By the end I’m sure people will have recovered. But it was designed to cause strife from the get-go, like a pressure cooker. No one could really trust anyone because you had no idea who would be on your tribe by the end. That doesn’t create tribal cohesion, it creates frenemies across the board. So be it, your games your rules. Everyone planned for three tribes, we got this instead. I’ll know better next time to ask about that sort of thing.

Just so I don’t forget to vote later: I self-vote myself to SuLa. And hopefully 3 other people will too.

MOISES,

I VOTE TO Send cameron to the other tribe

I vote rudez to the third tribe

I VOTE COREY TO THE SuLa Tribe

Matt is going crazy because he wants to go to the other tribe

He knows he will get voted out if we lose

NICKOLAS,

I would like to vote adam off to the tribe of the rejects.

I vote for Marc

I vote for Adam to go to tribe 3

I quit your game im not dealing with being threatened with police.

No I have no issues

as long as a cop doenst show up at my door lol

ROB,

I vote for Larry to go to the third tribe.

Confessional: so apparently Adam is trying to get my entire tribe against me by telling them that I’m a dog hater. My puppy Snoopy says otherwise. Little does he know, I’m in a 5 person alliance with the very people that he’s trying to get against me. He is in major damage control mode right now because I called him out on his crap. Too little, too late. Sorry buddy, enjoy your trip to Ponderosa very soon.

VOTE: I vote for Nick to go to SuLa tribe. He’s too close with Adam and we want to weaken Adam, even more than he’s already done to himself. This is going to be quite a surprise to Adam, since he thinks he has my alliance against me.

I understand that you’re the game host and you have to deal with a lot of at, and I’m not faulting you for anything. I just think the way he went about things was wrong and an apology is not enough.

At should be “s—”

Damn autocorrect

Any one of us could have gone to Deanna’s or matts page, and found out that they knew eachother. If that’s all Nick did was divulge that information, it wouldn’t be so bad.

I figure there are a lot of people who previously know eachother thru survivor Facebook pages or other ORGs

And it doesn’t matter to me.

The way Nick went about doing it was bordering on stalker behavior and posting happy anniversary message from one to the other is just wrong. Anybody with decency would know that.

I also knew Deanna and Matt from before this game. We played vSurvivor together. It sucked. We banded together to get rid of other people and became friends.

That’s not why I feel so strongly about this, I’d feel this way if it were anyone else as well.

Unless we change it, I vote for Adam to join SuLa tribe. We can’t risk losing numbers just to not give Adam his way. Let SuLa deal with his crap.

RUDEZ,

Confessional 1:

Firstly, I am SO psyched to be playing this game.. I was quite wary about no closed ID, but feel like it’s working out okay for me.

So day zero was interesting, I got an opportunity to speak to almost everyone before the tribes were picked except for Larry and William essentially. They just weren’t interested.. and I think it shows by where they were picked that people did bond. Also Nick and Rob just didn’t seem interested in chatting to me.

Adam came out super strong.. like WAY too strong. I was fine playing along with his little plans, but he got a bit too eager and was essentially deciding who would be on which tribe.. and that just didn’t stick very well with me.

So from what I understood, Adam, me, Lyndsay, Cameron, Efe, and Corey were in a 6-way alliance. But Corey was added last second. Adam was also working on an alpha-male alliance with Nick and Rob I think. So Adam wanted me to be on a tribe all by myself, and make friends so I can get to the merge, and then cut them all to join him and his friends. How stupid does he think I am? Getting stuck on a tribe where you’re not planning on actually playing with anyone, is just a really s—ty idea

Well, that’s how a new alliance was born.. cause people were getting fed up with the way Adam was just deciding everything. Cameron and I started it cause we felt the same way, and then we found out Lyndsay was feeling horrible about it too.. So we pulled in people we liked, Matt, Travis, Moises, and Angel..

So the entire challenge was run by our voting block.. unfortunately we shot ourselves in the foot when we wanted ‘to see what happens’ if there was a 1-1-1 vote cause we knew Adam wasn’t playing. But we got Travis as the captain which is fine.

I’m pretty happy with my tribe except for the fact that Lyndsay isn’t in it. We’ve played together before, and I trust her 100%.. No one knows that we’ve played together, we’ve decided to keep that a secret. I know Lyndsay will be just fine on the other tribe, she’s an excellent player, and just knows how to get into the good graces of people easily. So I’m confident that she’ll find a good alliance and stay alive.. I just worry about Adam’s guy alliance.

In my tribe, It’s me, Cam, Angel, Travis, Matt, and Moises. Unfortunately I was a tad too friendly on day zero, as both Warren and Corey have sworn their allegiance to me without me prompting them to. It’s going to be quite a game.. need to decide who will stay loyal to me and stick with them..

Unfortunately, with Travis, Warren, and Corey I’ve discovered that they’re all bummed they aren’t with Adam.. Adam really is a piece of work, and I hope he falls early! If Adam gets any further in the game, I’m going to have to work hard to secure those 3 as mine, and keep them from Adam!

So yeah, I’m really happy that I’m playing a game again.. and thank you so much for casting me I really hope that this game is going to be exciting and that we don’t disappoint Will keep you updated on any news

P.S. I was 100% sure that Wayne Brady was going to be an answer to a question last night P.P.S. I really want the HII

Confessional 2:

So I absolutely hate that the tribes can communicate with each other.. it’s causing so much s— at the moment.

I think Adam will do whatever he needs to in order to get further in this game.. including flirting with a gay guy.. I’m not saying I think Adam pretended to be gay or set out with malicious thoughts, but his game takes one person’s feelings into account.. and that’s his. I don’t think Adam’s a bad guy.. but I want other people to think it.

My goal has been to poison Adam’s name.. he has a lot of followers. Although I think the other tribe is doing their job in taking care of that. Even if Adam is the first person out, he’s certainly been the most exciting person to play with.. he’s set up things so well in some places that it’s been a decent challenge. He’s certainly the villain of the game, and he’s done a great job of it..

Travis is driving me INSANE! I really admire the guy, but don’t really agree with how he deals with a bad situation.. I mean, I’m not really one to talk, I get far too emotional.. but he really gives me a run for my money. He’s currently ignoring me cause we had a disagreement.. and I don’t really take well to being ignored.

I miss being with Lyndsay.. like we still chat cause we might as well keep each other updated.. but I miss making decisions with her. She’s also my rock in this game.. it seems she’s gotten herself into the majority like I knew she would.. so we’ll see what happens..

So this third tribe should consist of Larry, Nick, Marc, Warren, Corey, and William if my sources are correct. Either that or I’m being blindsided and sent instead.. but I think I’m okay.. even though I’m being ignored.. lol

Honestly I’m not sure if I’m enjoying this game as of yet.. It’s going very slowly, but I guess it’s a marathon, not a race.. and there’s been quite a bit of nastiness.. and the peanut gallery in the main thread isn’t helping either.. I guess I wish the game was a bit more isolated.. but keeping my mind open.. will see where this leads

Confessional 3:

Hahahaha.. what a clusterf—.. So got blindsided last night (well this morning really).. Cameron’s been sent to the third tribe. I was shocked, but not overly surprised.. the warning signs were there. I was being ignored by Travis, the others weren’t sharing their answers for the challenge, and everyone was far too quiet.

So Matt got really angry.. I was also super pissed.. but that was brewing from yesterday already, when Travis was ignoring me.. I really thought it was rude and disrespectful. We fought the most pointless fight earlier about it..

I’m quite impressed that they managed to change the vote.. I thought it was a great move for them.. and wish I could’ve countered it.. but I honestly never thought Travis would flip. The answer to my biggest weakness: I trust far too much.. But we learn from these experiences right, and fix what’s wrong..

I’ve asked Travis to leave me alone.. that’s 3 people who aren’t talking to him.. Adam and matt blocked him earlier.. I’m sure Cam isn’t speaking to him either.. I don’t know if he’s got a game plan from here.. it doesn’t really concern me though cause…

I should become a member of SuLa tonight.. although, judging how this game is going, I’m gonna end up staying on Nlad just because I think I’m leaving.. we’ll see.. will find out in 4 hours..

I kinda like Adam.. he reminds me of me.. that’s prob why i wanted him out so much.. I don’t really care to work with him right now, but in the slightest chance we both end up on SuLa, I’d like that option to go there. I think Adam understands that no matter what happens, this is a game.. so if we end up playing each other, it’s all good fun! I do like how hard he is playing to regain control.. I feel like I’m fighting a similar battle.. but I put myself in this situation

I feel bad that I disappointed Warren.. I really respect the guy and needlessly said something about him, which he ended up seeing. I apologised as soon as he brought it up cause I was indeed wrong, and he vented a bit.. I hope that I can patch up that relationship, even if it’s only after the game..

So if I get put onto SuLa, I’ll be with Cam and Matt will be left behind.. so we have a few plans to turn things in our favour. Ultimately, we’d like for Matt to come to SuLa.. the only way that will happen is if the others feel as if having Matt around will destroy their games.

So A. Cam is going to tell the Nlad tribe that if they don’t send Matt to us, he will give Matt the individual immunity, thereby keeping him safe at their first tribal council, ensuring that one of the 5 goes..

Meanwhile B. We leak through the other tribe (via Lyndsay or Adam) that Matt’s planning on taking the rest of Nlad down with him if he’s not protected.. as in after they lose immunity, he would quit, forcing them to not only vote out one of their own, but to be down in numbers

But if that doesn’t work we have C. Matt’s still on the tribe.. But Moises has that mutiny thing which he will only use if he is in trouble.. we somehow (subtly) make him feel as if he is in enough trouble that he plays the mutiny thing and we escape to a safe place..

I can’t remember the last plan, except for something about going nuclear.. so who knows then.. some of them are a tad far fetched, but we have some semblance of a plan..

A bit about everyone else.. Corey and I talk about butts a lot.. Marc is friendly with me, I’m apparently meant to join DeAnna at some stage in the game with Lyndsay, but we don’t ever talk, Efe is adorable, and yeah.. either everyone barely speaks to me or doesn’t talk to me at all.

TIMOTHY,

vote: larry reason: seems to be an easy vote, and that’s what the majority want.

vote: nick reason: you’ve been inactive and majority rules, which sucks because you’re a cool kid.

confession: what the hell is going on! all these stupid fights and stupid dramas are so ridiculously stupid it’s no even funny. adam is a crazy lunatic and is just nuts. this is great for me, being in no drama is great and hopefully will take heat away from myself. hopefully we win the challenge so we go into the next challenge with 6 strong people

vote: adam reason: wow. talk s— get hit, or at least voted out. you are crazy. you’re a trouble maker and a horrible strategist. i hope you quit anyway. bye.

TRAVIS,

im so about to quit this game

Two people already have me blocked and i didn’t even do anything to deserve it

I think Matt did it because he knew he was verbally harassing me and it was a way to keep from talking to me

Adam – well he did what he did and I called him on it and then he flipped out and blocked me

Very dramatic cast so far and no vote outs even hahaha

Okay I am voting to send Rudez to the other tribe

Ok

I guess I should have let Cameron be captain

Instead of trying for something that had brought me nothing

Warren said Cameron could give his individual immunity necklace to Matt. I wanted to check if that was legit. Since they are on different tribe I didn’t think that would be possible. I could see giving it to someone on a tribe you are with, but giving it to someone at another camp seemed unlikely to me simply for the fact that if this were the real survivor game, it would be physically impossible to do so since the two tribes aren’t in contact with each other. Just curious

I’m sending Corey to sula or whatever that tribe is

WARREN,

Challenge 1: Vote #1 **Confessional to follow**

“I know there’s a pregame alliance and I know I am on the bottom of the totem pole. You are a wishy-washy player and telling me “I’ll keep you informed” on how we will do the challenge, just didn’t sit well with me. I am not your employee, and you are not the shareholder of Nlad, no you aren’t my dear”

Holds up ballot — [CAMERON]

Confessional 1:

Alright, so day 1 phew! (Wipes sweat), was crazy! This game is so intense my head hurts. So my initial strategy was to get to know everyone before the tribe pick’em. I tried to build messages with everyone in the game, asking how you, where you from, what do you do. Just making sure I have a good footing with everyone.

I realized that we have many people in different timezones and that Rudez stays in Cape Town! Yay!! So instantly I made a connection with her and it seemed that’s what she wanted too, saying she’s got my back.

I also made a connection with Adam. I like him for some reason… Though Rudez tells me not to trust him.

So Adam suggests an alliance of me, him, Tim & Corey. I obviously agreed thinking we would be picking three tribes.

So come the challenge, I was stunned when Adam picked Nick over me! Wtf?

So I became weary of him and maybe Rudez was right. But then Rudez picks Cameron!!! My word.

So initially I wanted to pick Timothy but accidently posted Corey, but deleted it immediately but it didn’t matter.

So now I’m a good tribe but Adam and Tim is on the other tribe…

*more to come later*

Challenge 1: *Vote #2*

Holds up ballot… [RUDEZ]

Seeing as you’re ok with telling people I’m this unfriendly person. Here’s a token of my appreciation xoxo

Confessional 2:

So this tribe sucks I think! Nobody is talking and half of them are online. Nothing has been done on the challenge, WTF???

So after looking at the order of the tribe picks I got suspicious. I think there are pregame alliances in this tribe, which blows actually.

So Rudez tells me Corey wants to go to the new tribe, and shows me a screen shot. Then Adam tells me Travis told him that Corey is the target and didn’t volunteer. Then DeAnna messages me and tells me Travis told her that William, Corey and I are on the bottom of the totem pole.

I don’t know who to trust at this point. I’m completely bumpuzzled over it.

So DeAnna also tells me that Larry is going to the new tribe, and that Adam’s blow up will trap him in ASUL lol whatever the name is. They think he wants the idol, and Adam tells me he doesn’t care.

Adam wants me, Corey, Tim and himself on the new tribe. Question is how far can I trust Adam – he’s a little loose cannon.

Also Rudez hinted: “wouldn’t you wanna be on the new tribe and get the idol?”, like seriously? You’re a rookie… I ain’t buying that.

I was ready to asked to be sent to the new team, when Travis and Adam had their little bromance blow up. I think its all staged though and they are actually aligned.

Anywhoo, Travis tells me that he, Angel and Moises were added to Cameron, Rudez and Matt’s alliance. But they were worried that once me, Will and Corey was gone that Travis would be an easy vote.

So Travis and I created a new alliance with Corey, Moises, Will and Angel.

I was skeptical cos I wasn’t sure if Angel and Moises was onboard and Corey keeps asking to go. That’d be a dumb move right there. Corey I think wants to go to Adam lol.

So we decided to bring the alliance down that alienated us. And sent Cameron packing!

Anywhoo, we were threatened by Cameron and Rudez to send Matt to SuLa or Cameron will give Matt his individual immunity. And that everyone is working against Nlad to ensure we lose this round.

Challenge 1: VOTE 3

Holds up ballot: [COREY]

F— you Matt! You should learn to be more nicer to people. I hate that you threatened us all over the last 48 hrs, and I hate what you did to Nick. So ya… Peace out!

6.1G Next Time On SCWL 6

– The debris flying in the air as Hurricane Adam causes further civil unrest amongst the other players.

– A SCWL tradition is introduced to a three-tribe format. Two tribes make a decision at the start of the challenge that has immediate consequences. Which tribe will recover well enough to survive the round?

– With Matt being immune from the vote on a tribe that holds him hostage, he finds an unlikely ally, and together they announce their target. Will it disrupt the power struggle on Nlad?

– And TWO hidden immunity idols are claimed in the episode. How will that change the game?

6.1H Exit Interview

ADAM EXIT INTERVIEW

This is your exit interview. After the season is over this will be posted in my online blog for the season.

1. Right before the application deadline I asked you to join this game. You did. Why were you interested in playing?

I was interested to play another ORG cuz I rocked the other 2.

2. When did you start putting your mega alliance together? Was it right after the cast reveal and before Opening Day?

I approached Cameron before the game started – asking him if he was playing in it. He said he was, and from then the EARLY standout names (to us both) were Lyndsay, Rudez, Rob and Efe. It started before the tribes were made.

3. After Opening Day a photo of your mega alliance on paper was posted for the public to see. Who did you send that photo to and did you know that picture could be posted?

I sent it to Cameron trusting it would stay between us. Of course I knew it could be posted – I just really thought he’d have no reason to as I swore on mommy I’d be loyal to him to the end.

4. During the Opening Day challenge you only cast one vote, and nearly won the slot for second captain. Was that intentional or was your phone truly too slow to keep up with the challenge?

My phone sucked and top model was on and I was with a friend and I didn’t care to be captain.

5. Now let’s discuss what happened after the Opening Day challenge. Several players allegedly blocked you, or you blocked them. Can you elaborate on why people blocked you or why you blocked them?

I blocked Travis after he went nuts on me on an admitted drunken stooper because he thought I was relaying important info to Rudez (which I didn’t). All I relayed was that “Corey” was the supposed target according to the supposed tribe leader Cameron – and that Travis would perhaps wanna go to tribe 3 third. I later blocked Rob when he was being a mega douche.

6. Is there anything you could have done differently when communicating others to change that?

No – I blocked them happily.

7. From what I have heard, this has not been the first time that you have been at the centre of controversy. Why do you think you frequently in that position?

I’m a smart social guy – and among some crowds – I come off as a Corinne among mutants.

8. When the three-tribe twist was revealed you kept begging your tribemates to place you on the third tribe. Would you have stayed in the game if they complied with your request?

I would not have stayed – the game had gotten TOO not fun at that point – it was a cast that I didn’t want to associate with (despite some nice poeole).

9. If you had stayed in the game, regardless if you were on a different tribe or not, who would you have aligned with?

I like Nick, and Rudez and I got closer after I left. Larry, Marc, Efe and William gave me no reason to not wanna work with them. I really liked Lyndsay but she went MIA during all that craziness, and I think DeAnna is a sweetheart and My biggest error in judgement (other than working with Cameron and trusting that Travis wasn’t a nutcase who uses terms like “jibber jabbering”) resided in my perception of her (DeAnna), not realizing that he past relationships (to Matt and Rob) would also bite me in the tushy.

*Her past

10. What is your reaction to the fact that the tribe voted you out onto the third tribe in the final round of voting.

I had no idea that they did. Dont care.

11. Who do you want to be voted out next? Who do you think will be voted out next? Who do you want to win? Who do you think will win?

Don’t care, don’t care, Hope anyone but Rob wins and I think Corey or Warren have good odds.

6.2A SCWL 6 Previously on SCWL. . .

Previously on SCWL 6:

– The much anticipated final season before SCWL All Stars began. And this time with a bang.

– Adam excessively overstrategizing prior to Opening Day caused conflict with most of the other players, while amusing everyone else.

– After an odd series of events, Rob and Travis became the two tribal captains. But with a third tribe known to be on the horizon, everyone knew something was up.

– The first tribal immunity combined with their knowledge of the other players as well as voting one person every 24 hours onto the third tribe.

– But that was far from the only thing to transpire during the 72 hours. Upon the Sad Pudding alliance of Matt, DeAnna, and Rob being exposed as a real life connection by Nickolas, Matt set himself apart from the other players by threatening to call the police.

– Once conflicts involving Adam, Cameron, Travis, Rob, Matt, Nickolas, DeAnna, and affecting virtually every player in the game resulted in either players blocking each other or becoming sworn enemies, it was clear this would be the most emotionally intense game ever.

– Also during the challenge, Adam begged to be voted onto the third tribe. Once his tribemates refused to grant his wish because he would be an easy first boot, Adam was out of moves and quit the game only 48 hours in.

– At Nlad, Matt also begged to be put on SuLa. But when the others decided to put Corey on SuLa as a way to receive three clues for the final idol, it was clear Matt was being held hostage as a first boot. However, he decided to stick it out and actually play to survive.

– Somehow the challenge reached an end as Aspu voted out Adam onto SuLa before his quit became locked in, and consisted of Corey, Rudez, and Cameron who were voted out from Nlad, while Nickolas was voted out from Aspu. This group triggered a major upset by winning the challenge as well as a clue to the idol at camp thanks to following instructions.

– Because of Adam’s forfeiture, the level of anger directed towards the host over the first three days, and sorting out the high level of conflict between players, the unprecedented decision was made to cancel Tribal Council for the round, thus saving an unaware Marc from being eliminated.

– But the premiere still wasn’t over as Cameron gave up his individual immunity talisman to Matt, thus protecting him from certain death at Tribal Council.

Seventeen are left; who will be eliminated tonight?

6.2C SCWL 6 Episode 2 Blog

MOISES TELLS ME HE WILL QUIT BUT DECIDES TO STAY

This was the first thing to happen after I announced the end of the opening round, and something I have kept quiet about until today. Moises approached me about quitting. After failing to convince Adam to stay but being able to convince Nick to stay put, I gave the odds of saving Moises about 50/50.

The conversation between me and Moises lasted about twenty minutes or so. In fact it was my first direct contact with Moises since the game started. It took a message of him telling me he wants to quit in order for me to chat with him. Not exactly the ideal circumstances.

This came before I was made aware of how much Matt was coming after him on the Nlad tribe. Up to this point I assumed Moises was one of five or six players who was drama-free. Sadly I learned very quickly that this was not the case.

I give kudos to Moises for being able to stick it out. While he has played a couple ORGs on another website, this was his first intense gaming experience. I exhaled a sigh of relief, but thought that Moises was all but certain this round.

For the time being, there was a bandaid as we moved forward.

ADAM QUITTING HELPS SETTLE THINGS DOWN

That’s what I thought the moment Adam left. This game seemed a bit more possible to finish now that Adam’s style of gameplay was removed from the equation. If one of the other overly intensive players found an early exit too, I was optimistic that this season would get back on track.

I will note right now that I am happy no one else quit all season. Sure, we will see some “take one for the team”, but no one who takes his ball home merely because he is not getting the desired results from his gameplay.

TONS OF NEWBIES + SOPHOMORES = LOTS OF WEIRD QUESTIONS

That was the biggest thing I noticed about these first couple of rounds. I believe I brought this up specifically to Rudez in the second round. There were so many odd or super basic questions that I often found myself doing a double take. It reminded me of when I was playing in my first ORG over eleven years ago. I understand now why hosts subtly laughed at me back then, and why I subtly laugh at new players in the first couple rounds of each game.

I should back pedal though and say that it is not laughing at them in a negative per se, but more of a “ah, the days when ORGs were a major unknown”. The number of strange questions I received really attests to the fact that we have a ton of newbie and sophomore ORG players. Warren, Travis, and to a lesser extent Nick, are the only veterans in the whole cast.

The other fourteen? A gaming experience like this is brand new for them.

MATT TRIES FOREIGN SURVIVORS, .000001, AND IS ANGRY ABOUT IT

Now onto our second tribal immunity challenge. It was a classic maze. Much to the delight of this cast, they only had to put up with one maze this season. In SCWL 5, we had two mazes while all seasons before it only had one.

Due to the success of the mazes in SCWL 5, I thought a more straightforward maze than both of the ones I did in SCWL 5 would produce a smooth challenge.

Boy was I wrong. And a part of the conflict did not even come from the maze itself–it came from the tiebreakers.

In SCWL 5, the final tiebreaker in the post-merge challenges were always “pick five numbers, lowest non-duplicated number wins”. In the first challenge a player will always ask “can we do negatives?” or “does zero count?”

This is the beginning of the storyline in SCWL 6 where every loophole is vulnerable to exploitation by contestants, and me either blocking that exploitation if it was too ridiculous or tightening up challenge explanation airtight.

There was another tiebreaker for the challenge where you use the eighteen letters you collected to use it as the first name of a Survivor contestant. The catch was that each tribe’s list cannot have more than one player with the same placement or from the same season.

Well, there was a ‘U’ amongst the pile of letters that they collected in the maze (NORTH, EAST, SOUTH, and WEST). Because of this, players went ahead and picked an international survivor. In any of my other games, everyone assumes international players are out of bounds because 99.9% of the time that is indeed the rule in online games. But in a pile of newbies and sophomores, this is not obvious to them.

So when players came up with a name from the South African or Turkish Survivor, I had to intervene and say that was not accepted. This infuriated Matt because I never said “you cannot use international players” in the rules, and he felt as if I was changing rules on the spot.

But that was not it for Matt in the challenge. Remember those numbers that I talked about earlier? He sent in .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 (about forty more zeroes in there) as his guesses. I thought he was just trying to be funny and said “uh, no”.

Somehow this turned into a major argument, and in addition made Nlad angry with me regarding the challenge because they had other issues which I will cover later.

I was in disbelief that explaining how .00000001 and a Turkish player is not even in the boundaries of being “crafty within the rules”, but just plain ridiculous. Upon reflection, I think it tells you a lot about Matt’s gameplay that you witness in the first two rounds–if there is no fence, he sees no boundaries.

Which in a social game like Survivor can crash and burn your game in a day. When it comes to strategy, your horizons are much broader.

ANGEL SCREWS UP BY MISSING CRUCIAL DETAILS FOR THE CHALLENGE

I guess it is tough to elaborate upon this without first explaining the maze.

Each tribe elected a captain. The captain was then sent a map of a grid where each letter was located, and the precise instructions for the challenge. This is exactly what I did for a more complicated challenge in SCWL 5, and it played out very well.

Cameron and Rob are online far more frequently than most players in this game, and went into great detail to ensure they knew the challenge. I waited patiently on Angel to get home from his job so he could get through the instructions. When he got home from work, I received one question before he said “yeah, ready, let’s play”.

This worried me greatly as I asked him two or three times if he understood the challenge completely. I warned him that it will be tough to sort through any big faults once the challenge began. Angel did not heed my warning.

ROB ASKED TWO HOURS WORTH OF QUESTIONS

Heh. I guess I thought it was funny enough to note at the time. But Rob had me stuck on my computer for two hours as he found four or five different ways to ask the same question before asking the next one.

CAMERON MISSED A HUGE PART OF THE INSTRUCTIONS INITIALLY

I think Cameron, as well as the other captains, either felt too much pressure or were overwhelmed by such a big second challenge after a disastrous opening round. Cameron misread the instructions and thought he only needed to collect ONE letter from each word. Instead of eighteen letters, he only had everyone collect four.

In a miracle of miracles, he successfully managed to get Larry back online to fix his moves as well as getting the other tribe members to do the same.

SuLa was the only tribe to not sit anyone out while Marc and Larry sat out for the other tribes. So SuLa was stuck with using all of its members, including Larry.

Anyways, where is Larry? Has anyone seen him?

NLAD TRYING TO COMBAT POSSIBLE FACEBOOK GLITCHES. . .AND ANGRY ABOUT IT

During a maze challenge, players always have to post each move separately. I think Aspu made this error initially but fixed it instantly. Angel, failing to ask key questions and ignoring a part of the challenge that he expressed the clearest, told the others to put their moves together into one post.

Now what was the rationale for assuming this was legal? Because Nlad thought that posting each move individually would be vulnerable to Facebook glitches and our dear host Logan did not think it through.

Allow me to address that right now–it is part of the challenge. Every maze challenge. You need to be vigilant to see which moves you fail to see amongst the sea of “move east-east-east-west-south-west”. That’s what makes the maze challenge so fun is that you need to sort through the confusion.

When they realized that each move had to be separate, there was outrage because they thought I had not through Facebook glitches deleting their posts and proclaimed the challenge to be stupid. I shrugged and let them play on as the other two tribes were doing.

NLAD IS THE UNHAPPIEST TRIBE I HAVE DEALT WITH

After two rounds of fighting and bickering with each other as well as the host, I felt like nobody on Nlad was having fun. Five of them were pissed that Matt was allowed to have immunity, Moises wants to quit during this round, Angel is pissed that he is the leader of a challenge that is too much for him, Travis is feuding with how much weaker his tribe is after the three tribe format was established, William wants out of the drama, and Matt seems to love drama.

MATT KEEPS GIVING TIPS ON HOW I SHOULD HOST

Most of it was edited out from this episode because of how much time it would take to transcribe, and how much of it was posted exclusively in Nlad’s camp, but man, this was a stressful part about the first three rounds. With Matt wearing immunity no matter what if he loses, I knew I had to deal with Matt for at least another week. This storyline thankfully fades, but this is part of the three round stretch where Matt is really unhappy with my hosting. Not just with this challenge or the last challenge in particular, but getting tips on how to host a game.

Warren, Kodi, Clayton, and other hosts are undoubtedly reading this blog and can nod in agreement–one of the toughest things to hear is a contestant telling you how to host. Each episode you will know exactly where Matt stands in regards to my hosting. I do not think I have ever had a player give me a general report card each round. Usually I receive praise at the end of the game, or one criticism, but never has a player given me a performance review on a bi-weekly basis.

MATT SCREEN CAPS CONVERSATIONS ABOUT QUESTIONS EACH TRIBE HAS ASKED AS IF TO QUESTION MY HOSTING INTEGRITY

Because Sad Pudding were on different tribes, and players like Cameron and Rudez who were really involved with the majority of the conversations during these rounds as everyone hung back, Matt was actively sending me screen caps of how I answered the questions of other players.

Luckily this ends in round three, but god, having each sentence I say when answering a question be broken down drove me nuts. That was probably more exhausting than anything else in this game. The worst part is that some of the screen caps were when players completely misunderstood what I said or ignored a rule so it looked like I was rigging the challenge somehow.

I will touch more upon this in episode three where things get out of control. You have to keep in mind that the only person in the game who was having fun at this point was Efe and Marc. Everyone else was either livid, angry, and/or fatigued.

MATT’S PARANOIA AND OVER THE TOP ATTITUDE WILL LEAD TO INEVITABLE BLOW-UPS ON A WEEKLY BASIS

Wow, did Matt run over my pet shih tzu? Geez. But yes, I was expecting major Matt blow-ups on a round-by-round basis until I would snuff his torch.

And judging by the conflict that ramps up between him and a certain player in the next episode, my prediction definitely proves to be true.

NLAD COMPLAINS THAT I DID NOT ANSWER A QUESTION AFTER BEING ONLINE FOR FIVE HOURS

Remember how Aspu was angry in round one that I did not answer a question they had with 30 minutes to the deadline? Well, after being online for five or six hours as I coached Rob, Cam, and Angel on how the challenge would work, I would take a shocking break from the Internet until late that night. The challenge had been running for only five hours as I logged on to see Nlad screw up their challenge by combining everyone’s moves into one post, and doing the other faults as I listed before, but also messaged me if they were doing the challenge right.

When I told them “uh, no, that’s not right” everyone’s focus on Nlad shifted from the challenge to why in the heck I had the audacity to be offline for a whole stretch of five hours.

I just had to sigh and move on because I assessed that their anger was not only from the challenge, but all of the conflict that they are currently putting up with on the tribe. That is why I never lashed out or fought back at the time.

I FORGOT ABOUT TIMOTHY BEING IN THE GAME

I did my boot list projection for episode three at this point because I had a good idea which tribe would lose and who in turn would go home, and was stumped for ten minutes why I only had fifteen names written down. It turns out Timothy’s was missing.

I hope Timothy sends me more confessionals down the road to make more of an impression on me.

NLAD EASILY HAD THE ROUGHEST TIME WITH THE MAZE OF ANY TRIBE SINCE SCWL 1

Every maze after SCWL 1 has gone fine for every tribe except for whoever narrowly loses it. The SCWL 1 maze was where I had to cancel it and simplify it because Fiona “Smith” was the only one in the game who understood it.

But dang, Nlad’s performance here really reminded me of the Supa tribe in SCWL 1. They finished miles and miles and miles behind everyone else as their lack of cooperativeness led to them being paralyzed.

ROB FINDS THE IDOL AND PLANS TO GIVE IT TO MATT

Our first tribal idol is found. Everyone on Aspu gave up their clues, and Rob successfully found a YouTube video of me. Right after he found it he committed to giving the idol to Matt should Matt go to two TCs in a row on Nlad.

That’s right. Matt, my most difficult player to host in the first few episodes, is guaranteed safety thanks to Cam for his first TC and now his second trip to TC will guarantee him safety from Rob as well.

I was preparing for a long pre-merge road with Matt to the point that two TCs of safety is enough to coast to the merge.

SAD PUDDING ALLIANCE MAY BE THE MOST UNBEARABLE ALLIANCE IN SCWL HISTORY–AT THIS POINT I WOULD NOT BRING ANY OF THEM BACK

Wow. This is a really harsh headline for me to type at the time. I could have just removed it from this blog, but then it would inaccurately portray how I experienced the game as a host for the first three rounds.

Between DeAnna calling for Nick’s ejection, the sharing of screen caps, them appearing to be upset because they were not on a tribe together, and everything that I have said about Matt up to this point, I was in the mindset of never wanting to deal with Sad Pudding as a host.

It is funny that players on Nlad accused me of favouring Matt because I let him receive immunity from Cam. After reading all of this crap, do you really think I was favouring Matt to stay in the game longer? I had an easier time dealing with Danial in SCWL 5 compared to the situations I have dealt with SCWL 6 up to this point.

Again, I am shocked just how explicitly harsh and angry I was in my own SCWL blog headlines at the time. Usually I come up with more respectful wording and sugar coating rather than just “oh my word, please let it stop”.

INEXPERIENCE AND NEWBIES = PROBABLY WHY THESE TWO ROUNDS HAVE BEEN SUCH A MESS

This is a conversation I had with SCWL 2 alumni. The other season where eight players were playing in their first ever ORG, and many of them are now hardcore fans of this series as well as playing tens of ORGs after this. I asked them what SCWL was like for them in the first couple of rounds.

Their response? They had people like Noah and Jaime on Ooc who would show them the ropes and guide them through the ORG process. In a format with three tribes, and without a figure like Chris Hook or others who are laid back veterans, there was nobody to settle down the newbies and sophomores who were scrambling to adjust.

Maybe this is the charm of the season–you are seeing newbies and sophomores go through a vicious experience that does not have any general etiquette training for the early rounds. This is why I did not really lash out at anyone and relied on alumni to understand why everything was such a mess.

I really do not have the time to consult with each of the seventeen players personally. In fact, if I am talking to you, that is generally a bad thing because it means I am addressing a complaint you have. Most players are used to me being silent for five or six rounds at a time. You are lucky to have a casual everyday conversation with me more than twice during a game.

ROUND 2 CHALLENGE RESULTS POSTED LED TO THE FIRST TIME EVER ALL GAME WHERE NO ONE COMPLAINED

Thanks to Angel struggling with this challenge in such a horrendous fashion, Nlad lost by a huge margin. Only one out of the four blindfolded players managed to stay on the grid correctly. Everyone else fell off an edge or never made it back to the centre square.

Aspu did a perfect run of the challenge while Cameron and Rudez failed to correctly direct Corey. In fact, I believe Rudez took over directing the players based on what she was posting at camp and in the confessionals. I could be wrong, but something tells me Rudez is the true catalyst of every strategic move and every action in challenges for SuLa.

Nlad only had William get to the goal after he deleted forty posts due to Facebook dropping crucial moves, and proceeded to perfectly replicate his route.

Travis never made it to centre, Moises hit an ‘X’, and Matt went west on his very first move despite being in the northwest corner to begin the challenge.

See, even when something as mundane as moves on a grid can somehow be entertaining thanks to Matt. He joked it would take 2014 for me to calculate and verify the routes that all twelve players took, but things are certainly easy when you screw up on move #1 rather than move #70.

I should also note that Matt and Aspu numbered each of their moves on the maze. This is how they combated potential glitches. Obviously it did not matter for Matt, but it was such a realistic outside-of-the-box thinking that I will prohibit players from doing that in an all-star maze.

You can only beat the house once. 😛

NLAD’S TC WAS EXTRAORDINARILY QUIET. MOISES AND WARREN ASSUME THEY ARE OUT.

Get used to it. If you are looking for dramatic Tribal Councils, there are only about two dramatic rounds all season. This TC is the first of five that are exceedingly dull.

However, please enjoy the music I have to offer. Never before have I done three different soundtracks for each Tribal Council during the game. The series has come a long way from “I put music in whenever I feel like it”. ^_^

So who will be the first person voted out? Moises who really wants to quit or Warren because he sat out of a challenge and did not show initiative?

MATT VOTES WITH WARREN TO OUST MOISES

Matt makes his first friend on Nlad. For whatever reason, Matt was already gunning for Moises at this point. I thought Matt would hate Travis’ guts by this point or Warren’s. but somehow Matt and Warren find unlikely common ground.

That bond may be the most surprising one all season. I never thought Matt and Warren’s personalities would get along that well. Yet here they are coming up with a plan to either oust Moises or make it a 3-3 vote. In fact this vote had some suspense in my mind as players like William and Travis were tough to read at this point.

If those two are split, we will have a 3-3 vote. A re-vote could result in a deadlock which would send us to our first ever tiebreaker TC challenge in series history. It was a coin flip if this would happen or not.

THE TWIST TO GET CLUES BEHIND THE FINAL IDOL THIS YEAR

Oh yeah. This is the first season since the Prequel where four idols are hidden in the game. Blame this on the three tribe format. Each tribe has an idol at camp no matter what each season. In addition, there is an idol up for grabs regardless of tribal affiliation. That means this will be a rare season where four idols could potentially be claimed.

With MGI out of the picture this year, whoever received the second highest number of votes would receive another clue to the final idol. If multiple players tied for the second highest number of votes, they still receive the clue anyway.

I SHOULD HAVE ELIMINATED THE ?V= PREFIX FOR TRIBAL CLUES

Yeah. Aspu/Rob figured out that it referred to a YouTube link too easily. They each received 2-3 letters/numbers/symbols, and as soon as a player posted “?v=” everyone and Heidi Strobel knew instantly to check YouTube. I went back and forth if I would have “?v=” as one of the pieces that a player would receive on each tribe, or if I would not share this until a tribe finished first in an additional tribal challenge.

Clearly I did not give this cast enough credit.

CAMERON HAS THE IDOL

Whether it be Corey or Nick, somebody corrected the clue they received. With all of the clues pooled together, Cameron was the first to claim SuLa’s idol.

Yep. Rob and Cam each have an idol. Does Rob need to give up his idol to Matt anymore, or can they rely on Cam to give up protection for a second time in three rounds? Time will tell.

Rob and Cam both submitted fake idol codes to hide in the real idol’s place. Who will be next in line to be humiliated at TC by playing a fake idol? I mean, it’s not even a stick.

DEANNA THINKING WAY TOO FAR AHEAD

While players are thinking about surviving to see the Final Sixteen, DeAnna already had her sights on the precise path to Final Two. Slow down, DeAnna. You have a lot of curveballs still coming down the road.

MOISES IS QUIET AND SHOULD BE A GONER

I sensed that Moises was looking for permission from his players to be terminated on a positive note. After telling me his intentions to quit, I thought he would find a way to exit the game while saving face. This was the perfect opportunity for him to use that escape route.

Plus during both tribal immunity challenges I never thought that Moises was ever enthusiastic to play in a challenge. Him and Matt could only agree whenever they mutually hated a challenge. If he did not like the social aspect or the challenge aspect, I had a tough time reading what Moises’ motivations were for continuing onwards.

WARREN GOES BECAUSE HE IS TOO CLOSE TO THE ENEMY, SUPPOSEDLY. I DON’T SEE HOW

But Moises is given a second chance to reverse his attitude towards this game. No 3-3 deadlock. Warren goes home 4-2 where Matt is the only one vouching for him.

Sadly I think sitting out did not really contribute to his elimination, but rather the fact that he was the only one being saved from Matt’s wrath.

A HUGE BUMMER TO SEE WARREN GO AFTER ONE VOTE

Warren goes home at the first Tribal Council of the season? Knowing how badly and how patiently Warren has been with participating in this series, seeing him get snuffed just two days after Moises was minutes away from officially quitting was tough to take as a host.

It was a rare time where I messaged a player right after elimination and expressed how disappointed I was to see them go.

In hindsight, I can see why Warren may not do too well with a smaller tribe format. I think he has an easier time working within a larger nine-person tribe format, but cannot adapt to be that much more social when tribes have smaller numbers. Could living in a time zone that is nine to twelve hours away from everyone have something to do with that?

Or was his friendship with Matt really that visible to the Nlad members? If so, that was a huge mistake for Warren. Sure, talk to Matt on the side because he is immune, but man, you better be trash-talking him if you want other people on your tribe to save you. If you are on an anti-Matt tribe, and you are openly aligned with Matt. . .well, perhaps being eliminated was earned.

I wish I would have asked if Warren was going around to Travis or William and saying “Moises this round, but you better Efeing believe that I will vote Matt when that immunity necklace comes off at the end of TC”.

SHOULD HE HAVE PLAYED IN THE CHALLENGE?

Warren says his availability would have made him a liability for something like the maze. But would pushing Moises to sit out help Warren’s case to stay in the game? Part of me thinks we could have had our 3-3 vote if Moises was not only wanting to quit, but did -nothing- in a challenge.

NLAD IS DOWN TO A BUNCH OF NEWBIES, MATT, AND TRAVIS. THE WORST PART IS BEING STUCK WITH MATT. THEY ARE IN TROUBLE.

After two rounds, Aspu and SuLa have recovered from Adam’s antics in the premiere, and are now together as a tribe.

With Matt guaranteed to be saved by an idol at TC, I can only wait for how explosive Nlad will be if they show up at Tribal Council once again.

Regardless, you can see in my projected boot list further down the page and realize just how uber screwed I thought Nlad was at the time. Can they become yet another group who proves me wrong or is my assessment spot on? We shall see.

And now the second part to the three part storyline of the ugliest beginning to any SCWL season is now in the books! How long will it be before I have a greater sense of order than two city blocks of Kinshasa? Stay tuned.

6.2D SCWL 6 Epiosde 2 Confessionals

CAMERON,

I don’t think words can express how thrilled I am that our tribe won.
Not only our tribe, but our tribes.
Myself and Aspu. Rob and Deanna are the best, and it also means Lyn is safe.
But me and Rudez, we were down and out. I don’t think I ever went over how much of a kick to the gut it was to not only be voted out, but to be blindsided by a tribe I was willing to give everything for because I talked too much.
That’s the kind of thing I fear in my daily life: people being so quick to judge me that they’re willing to do things like that even if I mean the best for them. I wanted to get Nlad to the merge and I wanted to get them to the final 7, all of them.
But to be put here, with just myself and Rudez, my friend Matt alone on the other tribe, and to be surrounded by people specifically designed to take us out, I honestly nearly quit myself. It seemed like there was no way out of that hole. I was going to be the first boot of this game. And now I’m not. Rudez is not. And thanks to my move, Matt is not.
That’s one goal I never thought I’d achieve.
At least now, when and if I go, I can go satisfied that at least I’m not the first boot. At least I was able to fish my closest friends out of the tight spot my actions led to them being in. Plus a little old-fashioned revenge doesn’t hurt.
It’s cathartic all around. On my happiness, my sadness, my pain, my pleasure (don’t read into that), everything is just released and I can really look ahead.

Look at me now
I’m getting PAPER

Like the one you gave me.
!(–(–SULA-HIDDEN-IMMUNITY-IDOL–)–)!

Can I at all give my code to Matt if I were to feel like it?

I’m considering it just because Matt blowing up the Nlads TWICE would be great.
If they’re THIS bad
then they’ll probably lose again.

DEANNA,

Confessional #5: Victory

It has been a few days since my last confessional. We essentially have one the last two challenges and I am ecstatic.

Both challenges we have worked so hard, as a team. This last challenge in particular. We were off to a rough start, as we didn’t realize we had to get one letter from each direction, we just thought we had to get each direction. Luckily it was pointed out to us, and we switched gears. Rob worked so hard, I can’t even stress that enough. Without Rob we wouldn’t have won this challenge. Yes, the rest of us all worked – but Rob went above and beyond.

Winning today made me so proud to be on this tribe, and I can only hope we can keep up this momentum. We need to make it unscathed to merge, join up with Matt, hopefully Cameron and Rudez and ride this thing to the end.

I am constantly thinking about what happens when we make it to merge, I figure we probably have 6 more tribals. A lot can happen between now and then, but I have utmost faith that we are going to do well.

A lot of scenarios play in my head for the final 5, such as: Me, Rob, Matt, Cameron, Rudez Me, Rob, Matt, Efe, Tim Me, Rob, Matt, Lyndsay, Cameron

Either way, we need Matt there for us to gain majorty and ensure we get to the final 3.

If Matt doesn’t make it, or Rob doesn’t make it, I will have to readjust my logic. Most likely replacing one of them with Lyndsay.

I need to strategize with her more. I know she talks to EVERYONE – and I am worried about that.

On that note, goodnight and I can’t wait to see Nlad self destruct. I think it will be incredibly entertaining.

MATT,

MATT: Then why didn’t you say that in the rules? You said Survivor contestant. I was very sure to only use foreign versions that used the Survivor name and logo, the official versions. If you’ve been busted on this before I’d imagine you’d want to say US Survivor and not just Survivor. This is the latest in a series of screwups.

ME: Same thing with the lowest non-duplicated number. The only incident with that in the past seasons were people asking about zeroes and negatives. I clarify it for them, then move on.

MATT: But again, you’re literally changing the rules mid-challenge. You don’t see the problem there?

If you say number, we shouldn’t have to clarify that. A number is a number unless specified to be a certain KIND of number. A name is a name unless specified to come from a certain subset of the show.

ME: I have never seen it as a problem with those two aspects because nobody has said it has been a problem in the past six seasons.

This round has been unique that way.

MATT: Gotcha.

ME: I am sorry if it seems like I am striking down any opportunity you are trying to take to beat the challenge, but these are usual mechanics that have been givens in the past.

MATT: I should’ve known better after how the first challenge was handled. I’ll strive for mediocracy from here out, this season doesn’t really deserve someone with my level of gamesmanship anyway.

ME: That is why on Opening Day I say it is typically a two round learning curve for everyone. And knowing the challenges that are coming up, I am fairly certain that will come to fruition.

MATT: No worries, dialing down my expectations.

MOISES,

MOISES: Logan im so sorry but i have to quit your game too much drama and hard too keep up with i didnt know it was this much trouble

ME: Moises, give it at least another round.

MOISES: i didnt know people got so serious into this

this is my first ORG

lol

ME: People are just reacting to the first round. This is not by any means normal.

MOISES: no trust me people here are too aggressive in this game i didnt expect it to be like this

ME: Everyone is going to be focused on the challenge and cooperating rather than fighting with people not even on their tribe.

MOISES: true

ME: Can you give me at least one more round before rushing to quit?

MOISES: yea ill go

ME: You will keep playing?

MOISES: yea ill continue  lol

ME: Okay, good. lol

MOISES: i have a feeling im going to get voted out lol

ROB,

Confessional: Perfect run. That’s incredible. All of our double/triple checking anal retentive ness paid off! We work so well as a tribe, I’m loving it.

Confessional: I HAVE A F—ING HIDDEN IMMUNITY IDOL! DeAnna was a huge help in finding this as well. Hopefully this can take us to the end! Again, my anal-retentiveness, propensity for making lists and double/triple checking everything paid off! Be honest with me. Has anyone found an idol this quickly before?

RUDEZ,

Confessional:

So I haven’t written a confessional in a while, my bad! I honestly just didn’t feel like it

So just did the 2nd immunity challenge.. I’d say I was pretty crucial to us getting it done and following most of the rules, so I hope that I showed that I’m an asset to this tribe.. I do worry that I got a bit too bossy, so need to tone that down a bit.. but if the bossiness keeps us out of tribal council, then I guess it’s justified.. just need to see how the other tribes do..

I don’t really feel annoyed or anything like that at me doing a lot of the challenge, it’s generally how I prefer to do things, and I see Cam is the same way I guess I need to make sure I don’t try to take over all the time, people will get annoyed with that.

In my tribe, I’m not really sure where I sit. I feel like Cam and I are in this together, so I hope he doesn’t go against me.. I might want to remind him that without me, he doesn’t have a loyal ally here. Also, I’m really liking Nick for an alliance mate.. we don’t chat a lot, but I feel like we get each other.. He might just be playing me, and if he is, well done sir! Very convincing..

I’m not the kind of person who leaves and of my bases not taken care of, so I’m trying to bond with Larry. I really really like him, it’s just hard with the time difference, and him working so much.. I try talk to him a bit everyday, and I hope I don’t get too annoying as I do initiate all the talks.. I just don’t want him feeling left out, I want us to be a solid tribe of 5.

Corey scares me the most.. I have no idea whether he acts so carefree or if he actually is.. Most of our conversations are about butts.. and he swears he’s loyal to me, but I’ve heard he swore he’s loyal to other people too.. also, Nick showed me a convo between Travis and Nick implying that Corey definitely is NOT on my side… I’m keeping him close, and am hoping he doesn’t cut me, but I won’t be surprised if he does.. He’s a difficult one, cause I think I chat the most to him, but you never know.

The idols are another concern for me.. If I don’t have the idol, or don’t know who has the idol, I’m scared. I genuinely think the one idol is a youtube video, I honestly haven’t found anything else.. Matt’s gone quiet on that front as he was helping me, so i wouldn’t be surprised if he figured it out.. well, rather Matt than anyone else, I just hope that he’d be honest with me about it.. I’m hoping we get more clues tonight about that idol, but am scared someone else will figure it out before I can Someone may already have it if they lied about their clue to me, I guess I’ll find out soon if we get more clues

The other idol is a complete mystery to me.. I have absolutely NO idea what to do about it, and it’s driving me insane!! It’s just this puzzle that I can’t solve, and can’t think of how to even begin solving it.. I would certainly need more clues but am not sure how to get them! I do worry that clues are handed out for confessionals, and other reasons.. so I’m not even sure who has clues, I’d be silly to assume it was just us five..

I don’t really speak to anyone on Nlad anymore, they don’t bother to initiate conversation, and I know that they’re all actively rooting against me.. so it’s difficult to know what to say..

I am friendly with Lyndsay, Efe, DeAnna, and Rob on Aspu.. and occasionally Marc (who I should message again).. I guess I should speak to Timothy again as well, it’s good to keep relations on that tribe good.. especially if I’m hoping to join up with Lyndsay if we both get to the merge.

Hmmm.. I think that’s all for now.. I’m pretty obsessed at the moment.. I normally sleep 8-10 hours a night and then hate waking up cause I’d have to go and do chemistry all day.. but now, now I’m doing something I love, and am hardly sleeping cause I want to be a part of it all!!! I really really hope that I’m not the first to go, that would be such a disappointment!

TIMOTHY,

confession: amazing challenge win, my tribe are the best people to work with. I’m happy with how everything went and everyone’s input. i should be here for at least 3 more tribals considering nlad is going tonight, and if we do go, mark will leave. so it’s going well

WARREN,

Confessional:

So this tribe sucks ass! I decided to sit out because i knew I wouldn’t be available immediately and due to the nature of the challenge I didn’t wanna leave my tribe hanging. I also even asked the tribe if they are ok with it otherwise I’d play. They wanted to force Matt to sit out thinking he’d sabotage the challenges for us. Oh well Angel took the lead and screwed up cos he didn’t read the instructions properly AGAIN! So as soon as we lose, Matt messages me and asks me “dude, why did you sit out”, and I’m like “I’m a target cos I sat out? Wtf” “like is it my fault y’all lost”. And he goes “cos I’m worried you won’t be around for future challenges”. Oh and my “alliance” are mute… So ya I’m going home tonight I know it. So thx for the opportunity Logan.

6.2E SCWL 6 Episode 2 Tribal Council

TRIBAL COUNCIL #1

(ANGEL)-(*MATT*)-(MOISES)-(TRAVIS)-(WARREN)-(WILLIAM)
XXX
(adam)

Above the X’s are each of your names. As long as your name is above the X’s, you remain in the game. As soon as it is gone from there, so are you. And that will be the case for one of you.

The asterisks around Matt’s name indicates that he has immunity.

Whoever receives the second highest number of votes will receive their first clue to the final hidden immunity idol. If there is a tie, anybody who received the second highest number of votes receives the clue.

NOTE: You must answer your TC questions AND vote by 800pm eastern Friday.

Phantom and a Rose

ANGEL,

1. This may be the roughest two rounds I have seen any tribe go through. What is your take on the first week of the game?

Too much too soon? Its been full of drama so far.

2. You were put in the role of being the map reader. Do you think because you had so much of the information regarding the challenge that you should be held responsible for the loss?

No, I don’t. I went over all my directions again and they were fine. I had one question that I asked minutes after the challenge started and didn’t hear back about it for 2 hours. Everyone had to go back and redo all of their moves when we were pretty much already done and that just caused a lot of chaos.

3. How does the three tribe format alter your strategy for the first half of the game?

It just makes it harder when we lose because there are only so many people to choose from. It sucks.

MATT,

1. Adam has been at the centre of controversy, but you have not been too far from it. Is that naturally your personality? Or is that coming out because of the competitive nature of this game?

Who’s to say why controversy finds me. But I’m unafraid to speak my mind, I stand up for what I feel is right, and I’m never one to back down from a fight. I call people out on their actions and expect them to be held accountable for said actions.

2. You are the only one here who is safe tonight. Nobody can vote for you. Do you think you will be able to use it as a tool to improve your standing long term, or is it good for just the one round bye?

I think immunity is just insurance against another exhibition of bad decision making. We’re going to start cleaning up this tribe and get serious about winning competitions starting tonight.

3. You were the first to fall in the challenge due to moving west right off the bat. Was there a miscommunication between you and Angel?

I’ll put the blame all on myself. Angel was doing the best job he could given the lack of clear instruction and no communication about our questions for the first two hours of the competition. A lot of revisions have to be done and somewhere in there I put the wrong direction. I may have fallen first, but we’ll see who falls last tonight.

MOISES,

1. My own hosting of the challenge was brought into question throughout the challenge. Do you think most of the blame lies with me, or was the atmosphere at camp during the challenge a bigger contributor to the loss? Because the other two tribes were much calmer and made virtually zero mistakes with their route.

I think its just all the drama thats going on because of all the different personalities clashing together but it should ease up. I think it was just a simple mistake that could of happened to anyone.

2. What are the benefits to voting somebody out this early in the game?

I believe it shows you where you stand in the tribe.

3. Is it tougher or harder to make alliances in a six-person tribe rather than a nine-person tribe?

Harder because of how hard it is to make sure you have the numbers with you.

TRAVIS,

1. Do you think your position is more secure because you were captain and were in a leadership position when putting this tribe together?

Well as far as being captain – I would say it hasn’t really affected me at all yet. I never felt much like I was the captain at any point in time and I just think it’s a silly title; more than that is being taken ino consideration this vote.

2. What did you think of Angel as the map reader? Would it have been a wiser move to have somebody else in the map reader role?

I think Angel did well enough, it was a tricky challenge and he did fine. We all had a hand in losing it. I don’t know if anyone else woulda done better… Maybe Matt?

3. How do you think this tribe could improve?

I think we need unity and we need a win under our belt.

WARREN,

1. You sat out of the challenge. Could a case be made to vote you out because you may not have been responsible for the loss, but did not contribute to the challenge either?

I don’t think it’d be fair for them to boot me cos I sat out. That case wouldn’t make sense as I had no hand in the loss and if they are basing the vote on the challenge, there is someone who played a huge role in the loss. I still have loads to bring to the table I feel and it I would be a poor choice to get rid of in all honesty.

2. The maze challenge has been a tradition since SCWL 1. It is always our most complicated challenge, and usually the scores are close and there is very little controversy as the challenge plays out. Why do you think they had such a tough time working through the challenge?

I think had everyone been online at the start of the challenge, a good gameplan could have been laid out and I think the tribe didn’t read the instructions properly and that’s why the challenge went haywire I believe.

3. When we established three tribes, Matt was begging you guys to vote him onto SuLa. But Matt has immunity from this TC. So what is the criteria for who you vote out?

Its a hard decision, and I feel vulnerable. For all I know its me that’s gonna get the boot. But my crit for the vote won’t be based on the challenge, but the person I feel I haven’t connected with yet.

WILLIAM,

1. Keeping track of your Facebook posts have always been apart of each season when we do the maze, but I have never seen somebody recover from losing half of their posts. How were you able to do that?

Haha, I’m writing in all my moves then I see Matt start popping up again making more moves and then I accidentally click the back button and when I return to the thread I can’t find my moves for the life of me. But I think after a refresh they re-appeared, and something that really helped me in the challenge was drawing out the moves i was told to make. Helped keep me oriented.

2. Overall, this cast has little experience with ORGs compared to other seasons. Do you think that is responsible for a rough two rounds at camp?

First off, I don’t know any of the players from Aspu, but I do look at us as the novices of the three teams. I don’t really think that’s why we’ve been such a s— show. The removal of 3 players right away caused most of the friction in camp I’d say.

3. On a scale of 1 to 10, how happy is this tribe knowing that regardless of what happens this round, you do not have to do another maze challenge for the rest of the season?

Haha 10

WILLIAM: Sorry Warren 😦 this is sad.

MATT: Really? This is sad? 3 hours ago you said you were voting Moises. You’re not sad, you’re a coward.

(SCREEN CAP OF WILLIAM SAYING “ya i originally talked to angel and he was down with warren, but then i talked to you. Moises it is.)

MOISES: Matt its ok this is your only week of safety

MOISES: next tribal council you are gone

MATT: Moises, you’re absolutely right. I wonder, oh I wonder how I’ll ever get out of this sticky situation!

MATT: Here’s a word of advice. Mutiny. Here’s a second. Now.

MOISES: haha…. no

MOISES: Thanks for those who didnt vote for me 🙂

MATT: lol

WARREN: Oh well its been real! Good luck Matt… F— the rest of y’all including Travis the parasite, and William the dumb-ass. Its gonna be fun watching all 4 of you lose. oh and I’m defriending all 4 of you.

Well, the lesson appears to be that being unwilling to participate so early in the game can come back to haunt you. The question will be if that makes the tribe more functional down the road.

Matt, your individual talisman has served its purpose. It is of no use anymore.

Also, many alumni who do not submit a weekly power rankings also picked one person who they thought would win. If they lose their pick pre-merge, they have the option to pick a second player.

This also happened in SCWL 5, but for whatever reason I did not include it in the episodes. So if you are an early boot, hopefully knowing that someone had faith in you to do well may boost your spirits.

Next Time on SCWL 6:

– After being infuriated that he failed to eliminate Moises, and continuing to be held hostage on Nlad, Matt takes his level of aggressiveness to the next level. With the other members of his tribe waiting to execute him on death row, will foreign aid save Matt from elimination once again?

– A group of four solidifies their alliance on Aspu. The minority know they are on the bottom and scramble to be the fifth before it is too late.

– At the start of the immunity challenge, one player ignores a direct answer to his question, and in turn spreads his false assumption of the rule change to the other tribes. A messed up game of telephone results in accusations of favouritism and foul play against the host for the first time in SCWL history. After three messy tribal immunity challenges in a row, will Logan fail to regain authority over the contestants?

6.2I SCWL 6 Episode 2 Exit Interview

WARREN EXIT INTERVIEW

For the past three seasons you have expressed interest in signing up for the series. Here you are after only one Tribal Council.

1. You signed up for the game several times, but this is the first time you committed to it.What compelled you to finally sign up?

Every time I signed up, something would come up that prohibited me from giving 100% to the game. So this season’s apps opened up at a time where I had lots of free time to utilize. So its was an easy choice.

2. On your way out, you said you did not like the three-tribe format. I know from the thirty-six games you have hosted, I cannot recall a season you have started with three tribes. Care to elaborate on your issues with the three-tribe format?

Actually I’ve done the 3 tribes thing a few times. I would however not make it 6 people tribes, had usually have 7-8 people on the tribes, allowing for more wiggle room. My issue is that you aren’t allowed to settle in as your chances of going home is much greater than in a normal 2 tribe game where there’s more room to play with.

3. Speaking of which, you have hosted thirty-six games. What have you learned from hosting that you have incorporated into being a player?

The main I have learned is that you need to create a solid alliance immediately, which was hard this time around because people weren’t open to it or to anything

4. You could not show up on Opening Day because you were in a less than ideal time zone. However, you magically appeared to pick Corey to be on your tribe. Why did you pick Corey?

Well I had to use the men’s room when I woke up in the middle of the night and checked the game. Coincidentally it was more turn. I actually wanted to pick Tim, but typed too quickly. I actually removed the post but you placed Corey as my choice. So ya whatever. Corey was my second choice…

5. Prior to Opening Day, were there any bonds specifically that you had built with a particular player?

Adam, for sure! I spoke to him constantly. I really wanted to work with him, and Tim. I actually formed a close bond with Rudez cos we are from the same area. I also formed a good bond with DeAnna.

6. When you went to camp it was time to vote three people out. It seemed like you led a counter-alliance to go against Matt, Rudez, and Cameron. Why those three people in particular?

I led nothing dear. I was under the impression I was going to SuLa, in hind sight would not have been a bad thing. Word on the street was from Aspu, was William, me and Corey was on the outside from a core alliance on Nlad. Travis fed this info to Aspu. So few hours before we were to vote for the 1st person to go to SuLa, Travis backpaddled from the main alliance and brought 2 people with him, and asked Corey, me and Will to join him overthrow Cameron, Matt and Rudez. So my reason, was survival that’s it.

7. Matt begged and begged for your alliance to put him on SuLa. Why did you elect to keep him hostage?

Well the alliance didn’t want Matt to be with his allies on the same tribe and believed him to be a strong challenge player and wanted to keep him as an asset. I think we forgot about the individual immunity Cameron had and/or didn’t think he would be allowed to give it to Matt.

8. Speaking of the three SuLa voteouts, why did you ditch Corey after being on friendly terms with him?

Corey wasn’t ditch! Corey was smart. I wish I had done it looking back now. Corey volunteered to go to SuLa first. But Travis pushed for Cameron, and then Rudez. Corey was ‘sacrificed’ at his own will and to trap Matt.

9. Adam was in the midst of a ton of conflict. Did you have any issues with Adam? Anything to add regarding that situation?

I love Adam to bits, he’s a cool guy. In real life I think we’d be good friends. I didn’t wanna see him go really.

10. When it was a tribe of six, and you knew Matt had immunity, what was your first thoughts behind who you would have voted out?

I initially knew I was going honestly, but I decided to trust Matt. Well Travis and William used that against me and even though they had stated that Moises would be first, they backpaddled and punished me for doing the same thing they did.

11. You chose to sit out of the second immunity challenge. Do you think that was a game-changing mistake?

I wouldn’t have contributed to that challenge in any shape or form. I would have been more of liability in that challenge. That wasn’t the reason I went home so no it wasn’t a game changer at all.

12. I took a lot of heat for the disorganization on the Nlad tribe. Yet most of their complaints stemmed from things that were already clear in the rules. And then the strange mess with the tiebreakers. Why do you think the challenge was such a mess for the tribe?

Easy, people decided to take leads but didn’t read the instructions clearly. That was Nlad’s downfall from the beginning. So ya, Angel was the problem.

13. If you were in the challenge, would you have fared much better? Or would there have been too much dysfunction anyway?

Like I said, no I wouldn’t have, hence the reason I sat out.

14. Tribal Council arises. You sensed your vulnerability. What tipped you off?

Well nobody spoke to me at all. If somebody isn’t talking strategy with you, they are doing it with someone else. So ya, the silent treatment was a dead give-away.

15. In a strange twist of events, you found yourself allying with Matt for the vote as you guys agreed to vote out Moises. How has your opinion changed on Moises?

Moises, I believe is a good person. He however says two words, “oh lol”. I guess he has better scrambling skills than me. I wouldn’t talk to him outside of the ORG world.

16. What made you vote for Moises as opposed to Travis, Angel, or William?

Matt was convinced that he had gained enough votes, 4 to be exact against Moises. So why rock the sailboat? If wasn’t me going, I didn’t care. Those 4 votes turned out to be 2, and I got the back-end of a bad plan.

17. Who did you get along with the most on your tribe besides Matt?

Before the crazy mess, Rudez. She and I came from the same town. She however was shady and threw me under the bus to Matt and Cameron, after ‘I have your back’.

18. Who do you think will be voted out next? Who do you want to be voted out next? Who do you think will win? Who do you want to win?

Next, I think it will be Travis. He’s wishy-washy. I want Angel to be voted out next, he’s just an arrogant person. I think someone from the original Aspu will win, but I’d like Matt to win.

19. If there is anything else you have to say, please share.

I wish you bring like an Outcast twist in please lol.

On behalf of the production crew for SCWL 6, we thank you for playing this game!

6.3A SCWL 6 Previously on SCWL. . .

– With Hurricane Adam completing its path of destruction, SuLa and Aspu began to re-build as each tribe became a solidified unit.

– But on Nlad a new hurricane was created as Hurricane Matt made landfall. After arguing with the host, the players on the tribe, and even going after his own tribe, the camp was put into disarray.

– However, Matt was not going anywhere as Cameron from SuLa gave away his individual immunity talisman to protect him from Tribal Council.

– Because SuLa was down one member due to Adam abandoning them, Marc sat out for Aspu while Warren sat out for Nlad. During this time, Warren made an unexpected bond with Matt. Their target? Moises, who was on the brink of quitting the game.

– A classic challenge returned as all three tribes struggled. However, Aspu and SuLa recovered as they both won immunity, and Aspu received their first set of clues to the tribal idol at their camp.

– Nlad, who suffered the worst performance of any tribe in a maze challenge in series history, would travel to Tribal Council. Would Warren go for sitting out and have a worrisome bond with Matt, or would Moises go because his head is not quite in the game?

– But before Tribal Council could happen, Rob found the tribal idol on Aspu while Cameron found the tribal idol on SuLa. Both placed fake idol codes hoping someone will bite. And once again, Cameron was prepared to give away the individual immunity idol to Matt if Nlad should lose once again.

– Tribal Council finally came. Ultimately, Warren’s decisions backfired as he surprised everyone by being the first person voted out of the game.

– But Tribal Council was not done yet. Matt immediately picked a fight with the other four Nlad members who are all preparing to put him through the guillotine. How will they react when Matt pulls out an idol at Tribal Council?

– Sixteen are left; who will be voted out tonight?

6.3C SCWL 6 Episode 3 Blog

MATT GOES BESERK

Yeah, another Matt-centric episode. Don’t worry, Matt’s edit will fade by next episode as other players will take centre stage. But these first three episodes are really all about the drama that Matt had with the majority of this cast.

After we are finished with a TC where I ask Matt about being at the centre of controversy, he instantly attacks Moises. And does not let up.

After being finished with Nlad for keeping Moises, Matt turns his attention to me. I end up sitting through a few questions and comments not only on the Nlad page, but privately as Matt constantly responds with back-handed insults. Knowing Matt is guaranteed to be alive for at least two more rounds, I sighed as I prepared for a long game with Matt.

MATT HAS THE RECORD FOR MOST BACK-HANDED INSULTS–THE ANTI-DANIAL

With Danial, I would receive a ton of “f— you” messages that largely did not affect the flow of the game. Nobody else took Danial seriously, and so I knew it was a matter of time before Danial would go. It also helped Danial was inactive.

However, Matt was at the other extreme. He would outline all of the reasons he was angry, seek every loophole, pick as many fights as possible to trigger chaos in the game, and was fully aware of his actions. It was not like Danial where Matt expressed any mental health issues–it was just a matter of taking mind games and aggressiveness to a level that frustrated and annoyed most players.

I am curious how Matt would have played this round if Cameron and Rob each did not have an idol to protect him. Because it seemed like the worst strategy for somebody who is on the bottom of the totem pole.

If you look at Survivor, any post-merge or post-swap situation where a player enters in the minority, they typically befriend the other players and do not cause any waves. This works frequently because the position of where everyone stands becomes obvious, and thus those who are in the majority suddenly realize they need to make a move or shake up the game on their own out of pure boredom.

That’s right. Sometimes players will pull off a blindside just because the boredom with an obvious boot in line is too much for active players.

But I was scratching my head as he tried to make everyone on Nlad and on other tribes hate his guts as much as possible. It seemed like Matt took a few pages out of the Hantz playbook as he wanted everyone to hate him by day 39.

But Matt will get nowhere near day 39, right?

SAD PUDDING, RUDEZ, AND CAMERON ALL EXCHANGING INFORMATION ABOUT RULES AND IDOLS

This odd storyline continues. Players from three separate tribes work cooperatively on challenges and claiming idols. The level of challenge cooperation was surprising in the opening three rounds because one tribe has to go to Tribal Council. If SuLa goes, Cam and Rudez are paranoid that Nick, Corey, and Larry will take out one of them. If Aspu goes, Rob and DeAnna use the bonds between the North Americans and immunity-bearing Efe as they oust either Marc or Timothy. IF Nlad goes, Matt gets to play an idol as the rest of Nlad sends me an epic amount of hate mail.

Again, why work together when at least one of them has to lose? I am sure they must have spoken about who would take the fall.

MATT GIVES CAMERON A FAKE IDOL CODE–MATT AND ROB DECIDED TO DO THAT TOGETHER

This is reminding me a lot of the antics that Clayton would utilize to outplay Andrew.

Cameron has been uber burned by Travis. Naturally, Cam feels safe with the anti-Travis camp in the form of Rudez and Sad Pudding. I know how badly he wants this to be his five. Lyndsay as a sixth, I would imagine.

But here Matt is giving Cam a fake idol code. Cam is currently the only player not on Aspu who is on good terms with Matt. . .and Matt is actively deceiving him. -_-

So the rumour of Matt having an idol begins to spread. Of course nobody except Cam is buying this. I am curious where Cam’s relationship with Sad Pudding and SuLa will go from here. He will have a tough time integrating both sides into his plans. Or can he pull it off?

THE FIRST EVER JIGSAW CHALLENGE FOR THE SERIES

Yeah, a bit surprising I have not done one up to this point, eh? I felt it was time to experiment with it using a SCWL flavour.

Sadly I did not realize that clicking the bottom left corner revealed the entire image that players needed to create. Angel pointed this out to me. So players had the entire instruction put together quickly, and had an easy time with identifying the images.

The challenge suddenly got a whole lot easier for the players.

MATT THINKS THAT “UPLOADING PHOTOS TO THE TRIBE’S GROUP” MAY NOT MEAN “UPLOADING PHOTOS TO THE TRIBE’S GROUP”

This was the short-lived storyline of the cast’s paranoia in the first three rounds. As I said earlier, this cast had very little trust in me for the first three rounds. This meant that anything I answered when it came to clarifications was scrutinized.

In this scenario players were instructed in the jigsaw puzzle to upload images to their tribe group. I immediately received questions if it had to be an album on the tribe group or to post it on the tribe group.
.
.
.
Yeah. This season came a long way.

I ANSWERED THE SAME QUESTION TEN TIMES DURING THE CHALLENGE

I cannot remember which one it was exactly nearly two months later, but I assume it had to be about uploading photos onto the tribe group. There was a mixture of laughter and frustration from my end. That essentially sums up a huge chunk of SCWL 6, come to think of it.

WHY POMPEII IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE ANSWER

I was looking for the names of landmarks. There was Mt. Vesuvius in that photo. I am not sure if it was because of reverse image searching that led to an answer of Pompeii by SuLa and Aspu, but Pompeii is the name of a town. Vesuvius is the landmark.

WHY THERE IS NO WAY MECCA WAS AN ACCEPTABLE ANSWER

Because that is a city. Millions of people live there. Otherwise New York City is a landmark. Aspu’s knowledge of Saudi Arabia may be minimal which contributed to the vague response as some people may not know if Mecca is a city or not (I just learned all of my older brother’s friends did not know Casablanca was the name of a city in Morocco).

So I thought the Mecca response was noteworthy. Moving on. . .

ANGEL PROBABLY KNOWINGLY AND INTENDED TO CHEAT

Heh. Right after the challenge began, Angel told me about the image being shown in the bottom left of the page. Following that conversation, I messaged -everyone- that they now had to do their own puzzle as well as screen cap the image of their completion.

Anyways, about two minutes after my rule change I suddenly received a screen cap from Angel. However, I knew it was a screen cap of the image rather than of the completed jigsaw puzzle.

Knowing the flow of the game and how little respect I had at the time, I figured that Angel was attempting to fool me. So I posted a message of “lol, are you serious? You are just joking right?” to see how he would react.

Let’s say hours later that Angel finished the jigsaw puzzle properly.

YEAH! THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT, BOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII.
.
.
.
Oh. That’s why I didn’t have their respect at the time. :/

CAMERON ASKS ME ABOUT A RULE TWO SECONDS INTO THE CHALLENGE. . .IGNORES THE ANSWER AND TELLS MATT AND RUDEZ

Cameron asks if he can do other player’s images.
I said yes because they did not need to be screen capped.
I then announce that everyone has to screen cap their own image.
Cameron asks if that affects what I said to him minutes later.
I say yes.
He ignores this and tells everyone that they can do other people’s puzzles.

MATT TELLS THIS ANSWER TO DEANNA AND ROB

And with Matt willing to exploit every loophole possible, takes this information from Matt and abuses it without mercy. You can imagine what transpires over the next 24 hours.

DEANNA ASKS ME AND I AM FORCED TO SIFT THROUGH EVERYONE’S CONVERSATIONS SINCE THE CHALLENGE STARTED

I woke up to DeAnna and other players asking me why I gave conflicting information. There were screen caps of conversations between other players, and players circumventing the rules as they completed the puzzle, but sent the other player a screen cap to send to me.

Oh my. I wished to punch everyone in the face that moment. It was the first challenge ever where players were knowingly breaking the rules as I was wondering how the heck people thought I was favouring SuLa.

So I spent a good two hours or so going through every conversation that took place between another player and me during the challenge. Everything traced back to that initial conversation with Cameron. I reviewed the chat logs three times as I kept seeing me telling Cam that he could not do another player’s puzzle anymore.

I am guessing that one of three things happened:

a) I was not clear enough, and Cam decided that his original plan was legal;
b) I was clear enough, and Cam decided to not listen and stuck to his original plan;
c) I was clear enough, and Cam thought he could get away with it.

b) is the most likely option here. I told a couple players that it was really no one’s fault. The error was probably attributed to Cam’s excitement or moving too quickly by telling Matt right away he could do another player’s puzzle.

Out of any challenge in series history, this is probably the only time where I had zero control over what other players did in a challenge. I thought I had a challenge finally go smoothly until I woke up to see it was one of the ugliest challenges in series history.

For the third episode in a row, an immunity challenge just could not be played properly.

ROB AND CAMERON PREPARE TO SAVE MATT WITH THEIR IDOL

If Nlad loses, Rob and Cam prepare to give away their idol. Sad Pudding will likely preserve their own idol, and instead use Cam’s in the process. What will happen if Matt is sent back to camp? Moises will likely go home. Perhaps he would go through his plan of quitting if he has to bear all of this craziness only to see Matt being immune from two votes.

CAMERON NO LONGER RESPECTS MATT AFTER HE TRIED TO TRICK HIM

. . .And once Cameron sees Matt’s deception, it appears that Cam is done with Sad Pudding. So who will he side with? But didn’t he give up the idol code to Matt?

CAMERON ALLIES WITH NICK, THUS ENDING CONNECTION WITH SAD PUDDING

For the time being, Cameron’s loyalty is with SuLa. Unlike Andrew who stood by someone who was deceiving him for a long time, it appears that Cameron solves it right away as he sticks to SuLa.

I could see SuLa winning every challenge with their four-person crew, and Larry as a likely buffer.

LYNDSAY AND RUDEZ FIND BOTH FAKE IDOLS, AND ARE CERTAIN BOTH ARE INDEED FAKE

Yeah. Sad Pudding and Cam’s plans to utilize fake idols to lure in other players did not work. For the time being, Sad Pudding thinks they are testing Lyndsay’s loyalty when really Lyndsay is the one overplaying her naive attitude to appease DeAnna and Rob.

This appears to be the beginning of Rob and DeAnna’s dounfall.

NLAD WINS THE CHALLENGE THANKS TO MATT TAKING CAMERON’S MISHEARD WORDS AND WINS THE CHALLENGE ALMOST SOLO

It seems that Matt is a huge reason for Nlad winning first place for the first time all season. Yes, I do have something positive to say about Matt after all. I believe Matt had a perfect score for Nlad as he successfully yelled at his tribemates until the job was done.

Okay, maybe that was a bit backhanded. But seriously, despite all of the negativity surrounding him, he is playing this game as hard as he possibly can.

But even with this challenge victory, it does not seem like it will matter if Matt gets to day 39 because he will certainly lose in a jury vote.

the rock

IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU GET TO THE FINAL ROUND OR NOT!

MATT BULLIES MOISES

You saw a preview of it at the end of round two, but it came full force in round three. This is part two of our favourite rivalry in SCWL 6 known as Matt versus Moises. Moises, who is the second youngest player in the game and twice as young as Matt, has so far been quiet for the past few days. Just days ago we saw him asking to quit in order to save face.

But he has been surviving Matt’s punishment. He has to break at some point, right?

MOISES ASKS ABOUT MUTINY TRIGGER

Moises instead asks me when he can use his Mutiny Trigger. I inform him that it can be used -during- an immunity challenge. He must wait until the beginning of round four if he wants to open the door for Matt to gladly exit camp.

TRAVIS HAS CALMED DOWN FROM ROUND ONE

Oddly enough, Travis is playing it cool for this episode. He ignored Matt, and had his focus on winning this challenge. Travis is handling himself surprisingly well for the time being.

Although I doubt this would be the case if Nlad lost and Matt played Cam’s hidden immunity idol.

EVEN AFTER A WIN MATT STILL HAS ZERO TRUST OR FAITH IN ME–DIAGNOSIS IS HE WILL NOT LAST LONG IN ORG COMMUNITY

Just a prediction I made upon the conclusion of round three. I would not be surprised if Matt alienates himself from the ORG community on Facebook, and decides to remove himself from that environment entirely.

Unless of course he has an attitude change as the season goes on. But can Matt really change, or will it be more of the same?

ROB OR DEANNA NEED TO BE BLINDSIDED AT TRIBAL COUNCIL

Knowing the event I have planned for round four, this is the best opportunity for Efe, Timothy, Lyndsay, and Marc to come together and boot either Rob or DeAnna. Sad Pudding thinks they are playing circles around the other players when really the masks are slipping off.

The other four all seem to be trustworthy players who should have no problems coming together. Will they find it as obvious to boot Rob or DeAnna as I did at the time?

I THINK THE OTHER TWO MEMBERS WILL QUIT IF ONE OF THEIR PLAYERS ARE VOTED OUT

Given how chaotic and messy

MATT’S IMPATIENCE ABOUT CHALLENGE RESULTS

One of the tiebreakers was if Rob Ford would be mentioned on that night’s episode of Saturday Night Live. There was indeed a Rob Ford skit to OPEN the episode. Only two seconds into the show.

A year from now everyone will forget about Rob Ford owning the late night talk shows and American media.

But seriously, can I just watch the UFC main card before I mark the challenge and post results? 😛

RUDEZ’S REQUEST TO BE ABLE TO CAST A VOTE IN ADVANCE IS A FIRST FOR THE SERIES

This really goes nowhere, but Rudez was scheduled to go to a survival camp for about a week. This meant no mobile Internet access, and in a game where her tribe is tied for the lowest number of players, in addition to Larry who is fading fast, SuLa would be doomed.

For the first time ever, I gave permission to pre-vote since it was an unprecedented request. It was clear how freakin’ badly that Rudez wanted to stick it out in this game.

I should note that mobile Internet is no longer a craze in Asia and Africa. Even today roughly 75% of people in North America have mobile Internet.

I am the twenty-five percent.

EACH TRIBE LOSING ONE MEMBER IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED MY FIRST ROUND TWIST TO ACCOMPLISH

Wow. The reasoning behind my complex split into three tribes worked out exactly as I hoped in the first place. All three tribes have each won a challenge once. Each tribe will also be down to five members apiece by the end of the episode.

There is a method to the madness, folks.

NLAD ATTEMPTS SHARING THEIR CLUES FOR THE IDOL. MATT TELLS THEM IT IS A VIDEO LINK WHEN COMBINED.

Whoa, Matt pulls out the honesty card. Sadly that is as far as Nlad’s cooperation is able to get as nobody wants Matt to claim the idol at camp. They will wait until Matt goes before they claim the hidden idol. But when Matt has two back-up hidden idols, will Nlad ever have the opportunity to claim it by the time we see the merge?

NLAD WOULD HAVE GONE BESERK IF THEY LOST AND MATT PLAYED ROB’S IDOL

I covered this earlier. It really would have been the cherry on top of the feces-filled cake for the first three episodes. It would have been a historic trilogy to begin the season.

For my own health reasons, I am glad we avoided it.

ASPU HEADS TO TRIBAL COUNCIL

The TC appears to be coming down to Timothy and Marc. The other four are united against the Aussie and the Spanish fellow. The duo of Efe and Lyndsay work with the duo of Rob and DeAnna to come to an agreement. Who shall they carry forward?

LYNDSAY MISSES THE MOST OBVIOUS RULES EVER

Much like Moray did in the first TC of SCWL 5, she sends me her TC answers privately. What is hilarious is that I thought I would avoid another Moray incident by capitalizing ‘IN THIS THREAD’ at each tribe’s first TC.

And Lyndsay still sent it privately anyway. At that point is when I stopped thinking that my hosting was the problem with challenges. Not much more I can do when I capitalize ‘IN THIS THREAD’ when a player sends me their TC answers privately.

At the time it was another little thing that annoyed me given that all three episodes occurred in the space of seven days, but now that this is two months later I find myself laughing at the incident.

MARC SHOULD BE SAVED, BUT HE WILL NOT BE

I think Marc will make more moves than Timothy will. For some reason, I get the idea that Timothy will be too complicit and go along with the flow until he is pushed off the edge.

But Marc? I see Marc taking risks down the road. I see him turning the tables when he feels he needs to do so. Also, Marc was the very first player to send him an application. I do not question his dedication to this game.

However, Marc’s association with Adam was supposed to send him to SuLa prior to Adam’s decision to forfeit. And sadly, Marc does not know how much of the Adam stigma is imprinted on his palms.

He will fall.

SORRY TO MISS MARC BECAUSE HE WAS ACTUALLY CALM

Indeed. Remember how I told Warren how bummed I was to see him go home so early? I did the same for Marc. I know how badly Marc wanted to play rather than be ousted in a lame unanimous vote at his first trip to TC.

In fact, everybody in the fantasy pool forgot about Marc too. I tried to integrate Marc as much as possible into these first three blogs, but sadly there is not much to write when a player is calm, cool, collected, and failed to find an opportunity to strike.

He will go into the list of active pre-merge players that this series has seen all too often. However, we almost always have a universally active cast. Great people are bound to go home early.

MUTINY ON THE HORIZON. ASPU BECOMES THE SAD PUDDING DOMINATED TRIBE AS MATT SHALL JOIN THEM

Yeah. A classic SCWL staple is coming up next episode. Aspu is going to be freakin’ lethal as Matt joins his Sad Pudding allies at that camp. Nlad will fall down to four as SuLa maintains their five-member harmony. Unless Rudez goes away on a survival trip, of course.

MATT AND MOISES END THE ROUND AFTER MOISES FINALLY FIRES BACK WITH A PICTURE

Much like the conclusion of round two, we see round three end with another fight. Matt keeps up his abuse of Moises. But guess what? Moises cannot keep quiet no longer. He gives Matt a taste of his own medicine by firing back an insult in the form of a photochop.

MATT TRIES TO GET MOISES EJECTED

Then Matt, Sad Pudding, and Timothy all call for Moises’ ejection. I am just glad that the police were not called this time.

I SAY NOTHING BECAUSE OF HOW MUCH MATT PROVOKED HIM–HE CANNOT DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND THAT BENEFITS HIM

I chalked it up to Matt picking fights with Moises intentionally with the hopes that Moises would respond in a way that could get him to be ejected.

If Moises did this out of the blue? Yes, he probably would have been punished.

But when Matt yelled at him for a week as Moises kept biting his tongue, and Matt was hoping to lure Moises into getting ejected? Yeah, not gonna let that happen. If you want an enemy out of the gate. . .beat em fair and square.

Regardless, it was a headache to deal with another situation as I deleted the picture, Nlad and others defending Moises, and Aspu calling for Moises’ ejection. Nobody won in this situation except those who love observing drama from afar.

And this is where episode three ends. The first chapter of the season comes to an end as the second phase of the pre-merge is ushered in. Trust me, it is worth the wait as we see a real game starting to be played.

6.3D SCWL 6 Episode 3 Confessionals

CONFESSIONALS ROUND THREE

CAMERON,

Can you do other people’s part of the puzzle if they don’t show up, or aid them?

ME: I suppose you could. But you would have to wait for them to send you the link, anyway.

Yeah.
Just in case.
In Case Corey gets drunk off his ass again.

ME: Note to all players: Apparently you can see the image by clicking image in the bottom left corner. So everyone please screen cap your jigsaw puzzle upon completing it and send the screen cap to me by the end of the challenge. Thanks.

Okay.
As for the hidden message
we can pretty much do that by default if we see the image right?
So will that be impacted?

ME: Everything else in the challenge remains the same.

Is it possible to pick up someone else’s puzzle? Also, if you close out of the puzzle tab are you forced to restart it?

ME: a) Not that I need everyone to screen cap it now. b) If you were unable to get a completed screen cap, yes.

Damn it. I told Rudez what Matt told me to tell her about the idol: he found it for us but gave it to me as a thanks for giving him my immunity. And now she feels as though he betrayed him. And I don’t like that. Not only do I not like my two closest friends in the game at odds, I don’t like that arguably the only two people in this game I can trust are at odds. If I’m ever gonna not get booted early come a merge then I need as many people as I can scrounge together on my side.

She’s losing her s— on me, and it’s stressing me out. Mostly it’s at Matt for lying. But she’s trying to blame me for accepting the idol. When A) I didn’t know she was owed the idol by Matt, she wasn’t owed the idol, and C) what would she do?
I didn’t mean to make anything bad happen by accepting a gift. Any bad blood she has with Matt is with Matt. I took an idol like any smart person would do and now the most I can do is share it.
But frankly I want the piece of s— gone as fast as possible if this is the way she’s gonna act about it. Christ.
Why is it anytime something goes right for me something or someones have to come along and f— it up for me?
I think what she has to realize is that not everyone in this game can be nice and moral. And it doesn’t make it a personal affront if someone does go against someone else in the game. Was that a stupid, sightless move by Matt to break a promise like that? Yes. But it’s not going to be the end of the world.
I’m starting to see why Matt said she was like Lisa.
Only she’s acting more like Lil or Dawn with a sense of entitlement.
And I guess now I’m learning that not everyone in this game can be nice and moral. Because I was so touched by how Rudez and Matt were willing to work with me that I was willing to revolve my game around helping them be the comeback kids of the game. Now? I realize that inherently they’re both selfish players. Matt wants to burn everyone on his tribe and gave me the idol as a slight to Rudez for whatever reason. Rudez is just going nuts right now because she felt entitled to something that was not hers. It’s making me realize that maybe I need to stop playing the storyteller and get further in the game.
Either way, my only two allies in the game refuse to work with each other. And that leaves me up s— creek.
It’s like my only hope will be to… sigh… stay aligned with Nick.

All I know is that I am not the type of person who will use my friendship to manipulate or backstab people. And I’ve been made a fool of enough in my life time, especially by myself. And I refuse to let the same happen here.]

DEANNA,

Confessional #6: Idols, Idols, Tribal.

The last few days, the idol has been running around camp. We received the clue to the immunity idol’s location and Rob was off and running. Not long after we got the clues, Rob found it! I was so happy he did, but then came the big question, tell or not to tell?

That is when I came up with a plan. A plan to see who we could trust. Originally we were going to give the fake idol link to Marc, but Rob quickly convinced me Lyndsay was the better target. Rob was right.

After a close call with Efe who came to me asking if I thought Rob might have found the idol, I managed to quell those fears momentarily as we distributed the links evenly. 20 links per person. We gave Lyndsay the fake link and I went to bed.

I woke up to Lyndsay telling me and Rob in a thread that she found the idol! This is perfect. While I feel REALLY REALLY bad about her thinking she has an idol. I really wish we could tell her that we have it, and that she passed a test but that would just backfire. I hope after all this is over she will understand. Rob and I needed to see if we could trust her – and we can. She came to us to let us know and that is HUGE. I really like Lyndsay, and I really want to take her to the end of the game with us.

The downside is that now Lyndsay does not want to tell the Misfits about her idol. I am trying to convince her that she has to – but she isn’t budging. She has to, because Efe and Tim are already asking questions, and they know that someone has it. In order for us to stay tight and together it is essential that we are honest with each other. She is making the wrong decision here, but I can’t force her to do something she doesn’t want to do.

I also came up with the scheme for Matt to make Nlad thing he has their idol. Screencap the message that was sent to Rob and photoshop it. Then post it to Nlad. They will think he has the idol and if they by some miracle find the real idol, they will think it is the fake. Brilliant, if you ask me!

More in idols, Tim will be receiving a clue to an immunity idol tonight. This was huge news, and by my calculations 1 of 7 immunity idols that could potentially be in play. Tim completely offered to share the clue with me, which is amazing. If he does this also shows me that he can be trusted. I love that these little tests are happening early.

More on trust – Lyndsay approached Rob and I for a final 3 deal today. Also, Efe approached me for a final 3 deal with Lyndsay and him. I feel that this puts me in a very very good spot if we can make it to the end of the game.

Lastly on trust, we have been talking with Cameron and Rudez over on Sula – but mostly Cameron. He really wants to work with us to ensure that Nlad is destroyed. I really think that come merge I can work with Cam, but I am unsure about Rudez. I don’t think I can trust her, but she is Cameron’s ally and she will have to stay. I also have to remember patience, as I want to propose a merge deal with Cameron, but I know it is too early.

Lyndsay also came up with an idea for a fake fight as we get closer to merge to ensure that our tribe is not seen as a threat when we make it to merge. I don’t know if it will work, but it might help. If people see us as a tight 5, we might be a huge target.

Which reminds me, we ARE going to win every challenge between now and merge. It will happen. We are not going to tribal again.

Lastly, tonight’s tribal. Marc is going home and I feel really bad about lying to him, but that is the name of the game. He flipped on us with Adam and that really cemented his departure first. Not to mention he is the only one of the 6 that is not a Misfit. Adam really screwed him over. This would have been Adam going home, and not Marc. Marc would be over at Sula and safe. I hope that he takes this departure ok, and knows that it was nothing personal he just sided with the wrong person when the tribes were formed. We wanted to send him to Sula to give him a shot to play. Had we known earlier, he would have gone there instead of Nick, so we could send Nick home. This is the part of the game that no one likes, and I hope that he realizes that when he is blind sided tonight. I know Marc was nervous that Rob was working against him to get him out – and he was partly right. Poor Marc. He is a really nice guy, and didn’t deserve to be voted out so early.

Now, it is time for sleep. When I wake up, I hope it is to a happy tribe, without drama and HOPEFULLY no surprises.

EFE,

Confessional: We have a strong tribe and I am so happy about it. Esp. Rob did an amazing job in the last challenge.

Recently Lyndsay told me that Cameron found the idol then after one day he told me that Someone in out tribe found the idol too. I mean I hope she tells me the truth but if she is right that means she also found the right answer and I believe that she definitely take some help from some other person. It can be Rob or maybe DeAnne found it but as long as people assume that someone got the idol, they are in danger. They should reveal to us five ( Misfits Allience) if they really found it.

MARC,

CONFESSIONAL. DAY 9
At this point in the game I’m very happy with my tribe. We are all workers and commited. This is both good and bad. Good because we’ll possibly avoid to go to TC, and bad because when it’s time to visit it, it will be hard to decide who to sacrifice. So now is time to step 2: to become a friend of my mates so that they might not see me as a threat.

NICKOLAS,

Confessional;

Well this game has been quite interesting. The only person that I dont like right now is Matt and I wouldn’t even have a problem with him but he started s— with me for no reason.

In other news I am happy to be on the Sula tribe. I feel like I am in a much better position on this tribe than the other tribe even if Rudez and Cameron are aligned with Matt. I am hoping they are going to be looking out for their own game just a little bit more than they are looking out for Matts game. I don’t know though because Matt seems like the type to explode if they don’t vote the way that he wants. I really like Rudez though and have been gaining a lot of trust with her so I hope that we can work something out.

Corey and Larry have been oddly silent. I know Corey wants to work with Larry and I to take our Rudez and Cameron but I would rather just vote Corey out. I was going to trust him until Rudez told me that Corey gave her his idol clues. He gave them to me too but still he gave them to the person he told me to target. Shady.

From Aspu the only person I still talk to is Lyndsay, She was the only one that told me I was going to be the one voted out so I have stayed in contact with her. Hopefully if we both make merge I can work something out with her.

From Nlad, I don’t really trust or want to work with any of them. Angel would be nice to work with I just don’t know if I can get him without also getting Travis which I don’t want to get involved with.

Now just waiting for the next challenge and hope we kick ass. Also hoping Nlad loses and they dumb Matts dumb ass

MATT,

Angel had cheated until you posted your addendum, I was hoping to get him kicked off and/or disqualified.
But he went ahead and completed the challenge, so oh well.

MATT: So does my post fit your criteria, assuming those pics are correct?
The pic of Georges St-Pierre is in the same gallery. Your instruction said to upload it and once that’s done, upload the others. Do those need to be in different galleries?

ME: Just as long as it is in the tribe’s group, you’re good.

MATT: I’m very wary but okay.

(After Moises photo chops a picture of Matt.)

MATT: I’m choosing not to publicly call you out on this out of respect, but I’d appreciate you outlining for me the discipline you’ll be taking on Moises.

ME: I gave him a warning and took down the photo as soon as I saw it. He apologized. It was in the peak of your guys’ arguments.

Not acceptable.
a) He did not apologize to me and b) you outlined last time someone decided to go outside the game that there would be consequences.
I may be a s—talker and I may be a trouble starter but I never, EVER go outside the lines to do so. I keep everything about the game in the game.

Can I transfer my reward to someone else, like Cameron did with his reward?

ME: Yes.

MATT: I transfer my reward to DeAnna Bastin
Wait
Are you going to announce it publicly

ME: Yes.

MATT: Well that won’t do.
I transfer it to Lyndsay
Sorry for the confusion

ME: Okay, that will be announced at the end of the round.

RUDEZ,

Oh lame.. I hoped you would just send me the code.. so I could know if Rob had the other teams..
But this looks a bit too legit..
See, I know this is a fake one, so I hoped you’d leave out all the rules and stuff.. so that when you reply to Lyndsay’s chicken message, we could figure out if it was real or not..

Confessional:

So let me start off with today was a bit rough for me… You know that idol that Matt swore he’d help me find, well he found it and gave it to Cameron.. what a tool.. he just revealed exactly who he’s aligned with, and I no longer trust a thing that he says.. for all I care, he can be voted out next..

But I’ll play the I’m no longer angry at you card, but I am.. and it’s all because of the way he handled it.. He was insensitive, harsh, and I’d say even cruel.  He is definitely not the kind of person I’d like to have in my life, but this is a game, and if we both get to the merge, that is where I’ll slit his figurative throat!

I’ve been thinking for a while now that Matt really doesn’t know how to play socially smart.. he’s alienating everyone with his group messages, and is lying left right and centre.. it hasn’t really concerned me until now.. as Travis loves pointing out, I’m clumped in with Matt, and if I, his ally, finds his outbursts embarrassing, I can’t imagine what everyone else is thinking.

So Cam has the idol now and has told at least Lyndsay about it.. for such a fan of the game, he makes the fatal decision to share too much information (something I’m at fault of too).. this just means that the idol needs to be played before the merge or it becomes a target.

I’m also pissed with Corey.. he lied about his idol clue.. said it was 04g, not O4g.. I even asked him to check that it was a zero.. meh Corey

So up until now, I haven’t really been myself.. I’ve been playing a very average game, and have been far too nice.. but that’s not gotten me very far.. It’s time for the cold and distant Rudez to come out again.. I’ll be just as friendly, but no more trusting people who don’t deserve it..

I will figure out the clue to the other idol, and I will continue ensuring my tribe gets through the challenges.. and I will take no more s—.. you cross me, then I’m done with you.. goodbye Travis, goodbye Matt

TRAVIS,

So a confessional is long overdue
From the beginning of this game multiple people were player super hard before tribes were even announced. Adam invited me to a twelve person alliance designed to be spread out over three tribes so that those twelve could pick off the other 6. This was an outrageous plan – but rather than try to blow it up, it let people work on it and dig their own graves.
Then the first challenge started and I was pulled into a random groups chat where everyone was talking a mile a minute and telling each other their plans for the game and who they thought should be out first and so on and so forth.
I tried to win captain because I misread the instructions and bought I would be choosing my tribe. However that was not the case and a school yard pickem ensued.
That chat I was in was doing everything they could to get as many of them on the same tribe as possible. 6 of us ended up on the the big NLAD : cam, Rudez, Matt, angel Moses and myself.
Within minutes people were talking about who should be sent to the other tribe or kept to be early boots
Warren Corey and William were decided as the three to send packing because apparently they were ‘weak’ based on what? – idk
Then Rudez and Cameron suggested that we keep Moises as angel as early boots even though they were suppose to be a part of our six person alliance.
I was already frustrated that were were gonna try to have a six person alliance on a tribe of six but everyone said that no matter what, we’d never lose….
That’s just too big of a gamble.

I started getting paranoid about this pecking order and quickly realized that Matt Cameron and Rudez were calling all the shots and basically deducing the fates of the tribe as far in advance as they could.
So basically I was done with this seemingly fake alliance at that point. I had proof I could share with warren, William, Corey, angel and Moises to prove we were all on the bottom an that it would be bet to flip things immediately and give us all a better chance in the game.
When Cameron was voted to sula – that’s when the fireworks started. Matt was pissed as hell, Cameron went into eeyore mode and Rudez felt ‘betrayed’. It later came out that I was actually the first target to go – so any s—ty feelings I had went out the window when I realized I made the right move.
Rudez asked to be sent to sula so we granted her wish – I have nothing against anyone in the game at this point – it was all strategic
Then Matt got even more angry and demanded he be sent OR ELSE.

News flash – most people don’t like being threatened or bullied so we felt this would be a good opportunity to give Matt a taste if his own medicine and trap him on a tribe where he knew he was a sitting dick… I mean duck
Little did we know that gifts could be transferred or that Cameron would e stupid enough to waste his own safety on an ungrateful Matt.
But he did and then Matt got even more cocky and mouth and tried everything he could to get us to turn on each other.

My plan – kill him with kindness. I displayed remorse and regret for my actions and tried my best to appease Matt and be his punching bag. Moises took my place as the target by continuing to mouth off to Matt and admitting it was his idea to flip things (which it wasn’t, but if he wants Matt to think it was – fine by me)
Warren wasn’t being social ad automatically assumed he was the target. Why? Probably because he knew he wasn’t being very social. Why he volunteered to sit out the challenge I will never know and he never gave a reason, but it didn’t make him seem any more a part of the tribe. He didn’t even post once during the challenge or show up online. He was gone completely with not Even a word of support.
When we lost the first thing he asked me was ‘am I the target?’

The quickest way to become the target is to plant the idea in people’s heads – just like warren did for himself
Also he spent more time that next day talking to Matt than anyone else. He really messed up there. Associating with the ultimate target and trying to make deals with them is a no no and it blew up in his face.
Warren proves to be a Matt junior and was jut as explosive if not more when he was ‘blindsided’

It just proved to me that we made the right decision yet again. Sometimes the right decision isn’t the easy decision – but this is a game of calculated risks and ticking time bombs are not something I’m looking to add to my arsenal.
Matt is livid still and can’t wait to unfriend us all. If that’s what he feels he needs to do then he should do it. At this point it won’t piss a single one of us off. No one likes how he is acting or treating us so it’s no big loss in any of our books.

No one is trying to ruin Matt’s day and we didn’t sign up to throw challenges
If he wants to be a dick all the time – that’s up to him
But I think we’ve generally decided to start seeing ourselves as a group of 4 and just simply ignoring him

Are you a Virgo?

ME: No, Leo.

You’ve got Virgo somewhere in your astro chart though – based on your challenges and your idol clues

6.3E SCWL 6 Episode 3 Tribal Council

TRIBAL COUNCIL #2

(DEANNA)-(*EFE*)-(LYNDSAY)-(MARC)-(ROB)-(TIMOTHY)
XXX
(adam)-(WARREN)

NOTE: You must answer your questions IN THIS THREAD and send me a vote PRIVATELY by 300am eastern Monday (24 hours from now).

Above the X’s are each of your names. As long as your name is above the X’s, you remain in the game. Once your name is gone from there, so are you which will be the case for one of you tonight.

Zelda II Adventure of Link Palace Theme

DEANNA,

1. Last time I saw you guys Adam had quit the game. How peaceful has camp life been since then?

Camp life has been great. Everyone gets along wonderfully. There has been no fighting, and everyone seems to be pretty happy. We have been the tribe that everyone would see as boring because everyone here just meshes so well. I love this tribe.

2. But the peace has been broken now that you have to vote someone out of this game. What is the criteria for you when you cast your vote tonight?

I would actually disagree that the peace has been broken. Maybe I am being naive but that is not the impression I have gotten from anyone today. Everyone seems united in being pissed off that we lost this challenge due to a technicality. Look at Nlad? Our tribe is definitely more cohesive than they are. My criteria for my vote tonight is who I want to be playing with going forward. Who I can trust, and who has proven their loyalty to the tribe so far.

3. You were directly involved in some of the opening round conflict, but it seems like you have recovered since then. What aided you in making this turnaround over the past week?

I would say there isn’t much to recover from. Nick did something that was outside the game that was inappropriate. Not to mention everyone here are amazing people – not just in the game, but outside too. The people on Aspu are the type of people I would associate with outside the game. That is why it is going to hurt so much to lose someone tonight.

EFE,

1. Warren sat out of the second challenge, his tribe lost, and he was promptly voted out. You sit out of the challenge, your tribe loses, but you have individual immunity. Do you think you would have suffered the same fate if not for the talisman around your neck?

No not really, I don’t believe that there is a specific curse on people who sit out

2. The only Turkish player to play in this series before you was voted out in the first round in a huge 5-4 blindside. What is it like knowing you have tripled the best performance of a Turkish player in SCWL history?

YAY! I got the national record and Also I broke my pesonal 16th place record although It’s not that hard in a game of 18 people  So It’s going great for me

3. Let’s talk about the series’ debut of the three-tribe format. Talk about how a three-tribe format changes your gameplan compared to a two-tribe format.

I love 3 tribe format, It’s always fun to watch it. In this format there will be more diversity and when the merge comes it’s gonna be crazy

LYNDSAY,

1. In addition to a three-tribe format, you have only six people to begin the game on your tribe.  If you are in the minority, you have only up to one other person to hide behind at best. Does that force everyone to play more aggressively?

I don’t really know. I think out tribe is generally happy, so I’m not currently hiding behind anyone. Does it make people more aggressive? Maybe, but not on our tribe. So far we’re rather calm and collected, and nobody is really trying to be mean or nasty to another. From my angle looking in, we’re not an agreessive tribe.

2. Do you think tribes talk to each other more because of the three-tribe format? Because two tribes will still be immune. In a two-tribe season, you are one hundred percent communicating with your only opponents.

I think we do talk more, especially between tribe and tribe. So far it’s pretty apparent everyone is anti-Nled, so Aspu and Sula have considered working together for the common good. I like the fact that there are only 6 of us to communicate with because it makes things a whole lot clearer. If you spend too much of your tribe communicating with the other tribes, you’re losing out on a shot to bond with the people who’s votes count.

3. Do you think everybody on this tribe has been putting forth their best effort?

I think we all have. I don’t think there is one stand-out person who hasn’t been trying in challenges or who is useless. Everyone is pulling their own weight! Our losses have nothing to do with the time or effort of the tribe.

MARC,

1. How can this tribe improve and avoid re-visiting Tribal Council?

We can only continue working. I think we’ve done well, is that the level of the competition is very high, but I’m not discouraged, on the contrary, wanting to play and do the best we can.

2. Do you think there is an obvious person to vote for this round?

As I say, we’ve all worked hard, there is not an obvious choice. But someone must be sacrificed, and I am basing more on trust and comunication.

3. If this tribe votes out the wrong person tonight, is it possible to recover with only five people? Or can one mistake with such small numbers spell the end for Aspu?

Everything is possible in this game. Nothing is true or lie until it happens. I think whatever will happen tonight will be a great loss

ROB,

1. You were elected captain of this tribe at the beginning of the game. Do you feel like that makes you a leader by default? Or has someone stepped up into the leadership role?

Technically, I won the right to be captain, I didn’t get elected to it. I don’t think it makes me a leader by default, but if I see a part of a challenge that I know I can do well in, I’m more than happy to step up and help my tribe! Everyone else on this tribe does the same with their strengths.

2. Do you think Nlad and SuLa could be potentially bonding as you guys are here worrying about who to vote out of your tribe?

I don’t think the fact that we’re at tribal means that SuLa and Nlad are bonding. Since the beginning of this game, Nlad has seemed to be a bit centered on themselves and too concerned with the drama between each other to worry about anyone else.

3. How would you describe your experience in the game thus far?

So far this game has been very fun, but VERY frustrating. Losing two challenges due to technicalities is not a good feeling. The first time it was ok because Adam quit and nobody had to go to tribal, but this time it cost us and we’re here. I don’t fault anyone on my tribe for it, it’s just an oversight on our part and we definitely won’t make the same mistake again!

TIMOTHY,

1. You have been a contender for the quietest player thus far. Do you think being quiet and observant in this game is a positive or a negative in this game?

it really depends on the situation if it’s positive or negative. there has been a lot of unnecessary drama, which is some thing i don’t want to be involved with.

2. Let’s talk about age. If I recall correctly, you are the youngest player here. Historically, anybody below the age of 20 do not do too well in these games. Do you think that is a coincidence or does being young put you at a disadvantage in Survivor?

it’s definitely not a disadvantage, but it may not be a coincidence. it’s not really about age, but maturity levels, adam obviously had very little maturity and he quit.

3. Last round your tribe received a clue for the idol at camp. I noticed you guys attempted sharing your clues. What led to the decision to share? And do you think somebody has claimed the idol?

we shared our clues because we’re are a close team. i don’t know if anyone’s claimed the idol, it’s a possibility and anyone could have it.

When you vote, please do so in the following format:

VOTE: (Logan)

REASON: Let me see, the landmark is Logan’s house. And if I put the instructions together, it says to “Vote this fool out”. So guess what? I am voting you out of the game. You may be a big threat down the road. Sorry, but not really.

Okay. Efe is immune. You cannot vote for Efe. Everybody else is fair game. Between now and 3:00am eastern Monday, it is time to vote. Aspu tribe, you’re up.

TRIBAL COUNCIL VOTING

Secret of Mana — The Dark Star

DEANNA,

First off, I would like to say that Moises actions today on the public group were inappropriate. He should not be posting personal pictures of anyone, even people he doesn’t get along with. Doing so is a violation of personal property – not to mention I believe you mentioned people getting DQ’ed or strict penalties for this type of behaviour. Behaviour which you assured me would not be happening again in this game. I would like to see Moises removed for the game for his actions. Those type of actions should not be allowed in these games.

That being said, time for tribal.

Vote: Marc
(See Image)

Reason: Marc. I didn’t want it to come to this, and I wanted to make sure we all made it to merge, but we lost and now we are forced to vote someone out. I am sorry for lying to you today. It is Survivor 101 to never let someone know when they are going home. Unfortunately your loyalty was called into question when you flipped on the rest of the tribe and voted for Adam when everyone was voting for Nick. You showed then that you were not entirely with us, and in a game like this we need people with us that we can trust. I like you as a person, and I wish we could have kept you on this tribe. I also really wish you had stuck with us as planned and not sided with Adam.

EFE,

Vote: Marc
you are a great guy but you ended up out of the alliance.

LYNDSAY,

Vote: MARC:
“You’re a great guy, and I;m terribly sorry for lying to you. You should have felt you were on the outs this entire time, so sorry if this comes as a shock to you! You’re a great guy and I have a lot of respect for you and on how you chose to play this game!”

MARC,

VOTE: Timothy
Nothing personal, you are a good player, but somebody has to be sacrificed and you are the person who I talked to the least.

ROB,

Vote: Marc.
Reason: I haven’t had much communication with him during this game and he was scrambling this whole morning so I can’t trust him. He’s also not a part of our alliance, so he’s an easy first vote off.

TIMOTHY,

vote: marc
reason: it’s me or you, and i’d rather it be you than me.
also i think what moises done was really rude, disrespectful and unnecessary. he should have consequences for his actions.

DEANNA: It will.

6.3I SCWL 6 Episode 3 Exit Interview

MARC EXIT INTERVIEW

1) I am not sure if you are aware of this, but you were the first person to send in an application for the season. What made this series so fascinating for you to come in and apply?

A friend told me it was one of the best Survivor online series, I am also a big fan of this game, so I did not even hesitate.

2) I noticed in your application that you had a tough time with some of the questions that dealt specifically with North American pop culture. Knowing that you are from Spain and English is your second language, do you think that put you at a disadvantage? I bring it up because all other contestants speak fluent English and are heavily influenced by American pop culture.

Yes, that might be a handycap for me in the game. I think the income questionnaire was a little weird, with questions that apparently were not coming to the case. Certainly I don’t have much idea about american culture. However, English is not a big deal for me.

3) You were the one who picked Adam to be on Aspu at the beginning of the game. Were you intending to ally with Adam?

Yes, I liked him and I thought we could work together.

4) In fact, it appeared Adam had an alliance with nearly everyone, and why there was such a big fight. How come you did not want to distance yourself from Adam when he was being viewed as a bad person by other people on your tribe?

As I said before I liked Adam and did not see any reason to get away from him. However I was more attached to other people. Or at least that was what I thought.

5) Before the game began, I ranked you as being the most likely person to be voted out in the first four rounds. My prediction came true. I predicted that because I thought you would have a tough time relating to the other players in the game. Do you think that is a fair assessment? Do you think were voted out because you could not relate to the other players?

Thanks Logan, you were right about that, you’re such a smart guy. Just let me tell you that recently I played a Survivor game in English with people from different continents. There were 26 contestants and I placed 7th. With this information you can judge by yourself my ability to interact with others in English.

6) In the first round you were assigned to vote three people onto the SuLa tribe. What was the strategy behind each of the picks you made? Did you talk to the other people about who you picked?

There were several strategies. One of them was to send me to Sula in order to get the clues and help my alliance. Then there was that problem with Adam and everything changed. We always talked before making a decision. Only on the second vote I did it by myself.

7) Do you think you would have done better if you were on the SuLa tribe instead of Aspu?

Yes, definitely. If I had been sent to Sula I’m sure I would have lasted more days in the game.

8) After Adam quit, did you make any new alliances?

I didn’t make new alliances. As I said before, my allies were Lyndsay, DeAnna and Efe, or at least that was what I thought. But I was deceived like a fool from the very beginning. I think there was a parallel alliance from what I never was a member of and not even had the slightest idea of its existence.

9) Aspu won the immunity challenge in round two. You also received a clue for the tribal immunity idol. What are your thoughts on how the idol situation played out at your camp?

I don’t have the slightest idea and, honestly, I don’t care anymore.

10) In round three Aspu suffered their first defeat. You went to Tribal Council. You said you would start making friends, and targeted Timothy because you did not know him. Do you think you made a mistake by playing this way?

I don’t know, I don’t think so. As I said before, I was excluded from the true alliance. I thought I was safe and actually I was not. We all agreed to vote Timothy out because we had to sacrifice someone but they lied to me and betrayed me like bitches. They took refuge in my “friendship” with Adam to get rid of me, but I think that was not the real reason. I was always consequent and honest. I told Tim that I was going to vote for him. I never lied. I was honest with them and they backstabbed me. I respect that because I know this is part of this game. Survivor can be a very cruel game most times. I don’t think that was my mistake, but if it was, I’m proud of it.

11) The vote was not close. You were eliminated by a unanimous vote. Why do you think everyone else wanted to get rid of you from the game? And why do you think nobody was on your side?

As I said before, I thought I had an alliance, but I was wrong. My tribe mates had his own alliance. I know they liked me and their intention was sending me to Sula and keep Adam with them so that they could remove him from the tribe, but for some reason everything went wrong and I paid the consequences. I felt very frustrated and very ridiculous after my boot. It was one of the biggest blindsides that I ever had to suffer.

12) This season has about ten times more conflict than any of the first five seasons. What is your opinion on the conflict and complaints this season?

Not much to say. I have lived worse situations than I have seen in this game.

13) Who do you think will be voted out next? Who do you want to be voted out next? Who do you think will win? Who do you want to win?

I’m not much following the game, so I don’t know who will be the next to leave. I’d like Rob and Efe to be voted out soon. Last night I dreamt Nick won the game (don’t ask me why). But I’d like DeAnna, Lyndsay or Rudez to win SCWL6.

14) If you have any other thoughts, please share.

Thanks for this opportunity. That was probably my worst experience in a Survivor game. But you always take something good from bad experiences.

6.4A SCWL 6 Previously on SCWL. . .

Previously on. . .SCWL:

– SCWL, a series commonly known as one of the smoothest and most professional games on the web was anything but in the first three episodes of the season.

– The first three episodes made ORG headlines due to the unprecedented levels of chaos, confusion, multiple players threatening to quit, and contestants calling for others to be ejected. The game became ugly early on to the point that Adam Kolodny ultimately removed himself before the end of the first immunity challenge.

– But through this madness, a game is still being played on all three tribes.

– SuLa, a tribe consisting of round one challenge exiles from Aspu and Nlad, have flown under the radar as they have worked together to avoid going to one Tribal Council all game.

– Aspu, which contains Sad Pudding members Rob and DeAnna, created a four-person bond that includes Lyndsay and Efe. In addition, they picked up Timothy and Marc as a loyal fifth and sixth respectively. The six of them promised to go to the end together.

– But Rob and DeAnna’s true intentions are to try and take Matt to the end. The problem? Matt was held hostage on Nlad as an obvious first boot who could be eliminated before he had a chance to do any damage.

– Nlad’s plan backfired when SuLa’s Cameron gave his opening round talisman to Matt as a way to get back at the tribe which abandoned him.

– Matt used this opportunity to target Moises–a player who privately wanted to quit, and is the second youngest player in the cast.

– However, Matt would not get his way at the first Tribal Council as Nlad instead eliminated Warren–Matt’s only friend on the whole tribe.

– Last time on SCWL, Matt was on death row once again. But that all changed when Cameron promised to give him the hidden immunity idol that was found on SuLa. With fellow Sad Pudding’s Rob finding Aspu’s hidden immunity idol too, Matt’s position on Nlad never seemed so secure.

– But Matt’s stealth bomber would have to wait, because Nlad managed to pull out their first win despite the chaos and bickering that has plagued their tribe all game.

– Instead Aspu went to Tribal Council where Marc would take the fall for his early relationship with Adam.

– Now three tribes of five remain, and with cross-tribal alliances complicating all three tribes, players will be stunned with a previously banned twist making its SCWL debut. How will they react when not one but TWO tribes will be going to Tribal Council, and TWO players will be voted out of this game by the end of tonight?

– Fifteen are left; who will be voted out tonight?

6.4B SCWL 6 Episode 4 Summary + Mutiny

Episode Four: “Solidarity”

Date: November 18, 2013 – November 23, 2013
Mutiny: Matt (Nlad) and Cameron (SuLa) jumped to the Aspu tribe. Game is now 7-4-4.
Immunity Challenge #4: SCWL Survivor Board Game
Description: Four players each pick a position on a 19×19 board. 24 hours later, each player submits 35 moves that they will make across the board. There are a few teleportation squares they can use. Once a square is used, it is gone for good from the challenge.
Twist: Only last person standing wins immunity for their tribe.
Winner: Lyndsay (Aspu). Aspu wins immunity.
Idols found: Travis finds Nlad idol. Angel finds the fake one.
Tribal Council SuLa Voteout: Larry Chip Childress.
Vote Count: 4-0.
Tribal Council Nlad voteout: William Cook.
Vote Count: 3-1 (William Cook-Angel Candelas).

It is time to get to the results of the mutiny. I can tell you right now that at least one person mutinied.
.
.
.
.
.
Somebody has jumped from Nlad. In the least shocking mutiny move ever, Matt has left Nlad. He joins. . .
.
.
.
Aspu. That means Aspu sits at six members while Nlad is reduced down to four members. I have a feeling there is no controversy over this decision.
.
.
.
Is that all who mutinied?
.
.
.
.
Nope. One other person mutinied.
.
.
.
That person did not jump from Nlad. . .
.
.
.
Nor Aspu.
.
.
.
The person who jumped was. . .
.
.
.
.
Cameron. He has decided to move to the Aspu tribe.
.
.
So Aspu has more members than what they had by the end of the first round. This is only the second time in SCWL history where a tribe was increased beyond what they started the game with in terms of numbers.

The first time it happened was in SCWL 1 where Coo won four immunity challenges in a row, and were up 9-5. The Supa tribe lost one member as Coo ballooned up to ten members, and proceeded to sweep the remainder of the challenges.
.
.
We now have one tribe of seven and two tribes of four. This appears to be a brand new game.

Quick recap of who is on which tribe:

ASPU

ROB BRODEUR
DEANNA BASTIN
LYNDSAY SHERRY
TIMOTHY ZAHRA
EFE KARANISOGLU
MATT WOLFF
CAMERON JOHNSON

NLAD

ANGEL CANDELAS
WILLIAM COOK
TRAVIS RINDLER
MOISES MORENO

SULA

NICKOLAS DIVERDI
LARRY CHIP CHILDRESS
COREY ALTIERE
RUDEZ MERKS

And these are our three tribes. Cameron and Matt will be removed from SuLa and Nlad respectively, and Aspu’s Tribal Council will be deleted by the time they get there.
ROB: Welcome, new tribe members!
CAMERON: Hey, hahaha.
MATT: What time is it? Time to kick ass.
CAMERON: Adventure Time? I mean… yeah
TRAVIS: Byeeeeee
COREY: a lot of traders
COREY: alot*
ROB: Traitors*
COREY: no they trade

MUTINY OFFER HAS TO BE BUMPED UP A ROUND DUE TO DOUBLE ELIMINATION

For those of you not familiar with the series, I always offered the mutiny in SCWL 1, 2, 3, and 5 at the beginning of round five. This is to mirror the early seasons of Survivor where tribe switches typically occur 66% of the way through the pre-merge phase.

But with a double boot planned, the mutiny needed to happen at the start of this round rather than wait until only thirteen players remain. Plus the restrictions would have been influencing the outcome because of the three-tribe format. Players have an easier time switching up with five people on each tribe rather than a tribe that may be down to two players by round five.

I knew for sure going into this year’s mutiny that Matt would jump. The big shocker for me was Cameron jumping to Aspu as well. I nearly announced the mutiny results prematurely because I saw it as a foregone conclusion, but like most things in this game, I was offguard when Cam made the decision to abandon SuLa.

SuLa and Nlad are down to four members each. Aspu has picked up Matt and Cameron. I guess Cameron no longer trusted Rudez’s competitive nature as well as Corey and Nick who are not getting along with Matt.

Sad Pudding is reunited, they have Cameron as a fourth, and now Rob and DeAnna’s bond with Efe, Lyndsay, and Timothy faces a big challenge.

I NEED THE DOUBLE BOOT THIS ROUND BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE BEFORE HUGE THREATS ARE SCREWED BY A LATE PRE-MERGE DOUBLE BOOT

Who knew so much thought had to go into scheduling a double boot? I had a headache while planning this.

If I plan it too early, then good players may go before they have a chance to properly experience this game.

If I plan it too late, major challenge threats will be dumped right before the merge.

Round three seemed ideal so that boring inactives would already be gone, everyone has experienced enough of SCWL, and players would think twice before eliminating a threat when two tribal immunity challenges have yet to be played.

In hindsight, I think this worked out well.

WHY THE BOARD GAME CHALLENGE HAD TO BE A DOUBLE BOOT

Yep, another element to the double boot round is that it was the only scenario where the SCWL Board Game challenge could be played.

Why? Because it would be too easy for two tribes to gang up on one tribe and send them to TC this way.

However, if only one tribe wins, then the three tribes would need to strategize to find a way to save themselves, and come up with complex inter-tribal alliances. In addition, it is up to each individual player to plot out their own moves.

It was a challenge designed as a Bluffer’s Paradise. Would two tribes help up a tribe the wall like Clay in a Survivor: Thailand reward, or would they be left in the dust like Ted?

I was really excited for this challenge before the season began.
WHY IS THE BOARD GAME CHALLENGE CONTROVERSIAL?

. . .But then this happened. Everyone was outraged by the challenge saying it had too much luck involved. I could not really give away what strategies I would use, but people were unhappy with the level of luck required to win.

I wanted it to not only be a challenge about chance, but with the knowledge of probability, gambling, and loading up the dice in your favour as much as possible.

It was also a challenge that was different than the other challenges which involved a lot of research. I feel SCWL struggles with finding challenges that do not need research as a skill.

This is why I finally responded to the criticisms because everyone had been unhappy with every single immunity challenge in the game. I planned a good variety, but was stumped -what- challenge I could use to make players happy. I am serious.

My gut tells me that the chaos, the confusion, and the anger between the bickering players made any challenge seem not fun. I think taking their anger out on a challenge was a byproduct of everything that went on. I feel like these challenges are better than ones we saw in the SCWL 4 catalogue by far, but yet here we are in a state of zero challenges going over well.

But seriously, what non-live objective challenge did players want to see in these first four rounds? Can anyone help me out?

ALUMNI UNHAPPY WITH HOW THE GROUP IS BEHAVING

Again, the chaos in this game was making headlines around the ORG universe. I remember how pissed the alumni were during these rounds, and the climax of that was when they all hated how the players responded to the Board Game challenge. They thought it was the most unfair criticism that has been made against me in virtually all of my games.

Outside of maybe that anime-inspired challenge and the original unorganized word search. Sorry about that, Renee.

ASPU COMPLAINS. . .UNTIL THEY WIN

Aspu was at the front of the line in terms of complaining about the immunity challenge. I think the only one who did not make fun of the challenge and/or twist was Efe. Efe was one of the easier players to deal with on Aspu.

Although I am guessing Efe was easier to deal with because he was not like Matt who stayed up until four o’ clock in the morning working on how to win the challenge.

I must admit that I never expected a tribe to take more than an hour for each phase of the challenge. Work together a bit on figuring out where to place yourselves on the board, and come back the next day to come up with a flight plan.

Not five hours for each phase. Although knowing Matt and Cameron, I would not expect any less effort from them. They are two of the most intense players this series has ever seen. Heck, they could be very well ranked at #1 and #2 respectively.

They did not stop complaining about this challenge until they won. Oh, so NOW it is a great challenge.

But I chalk that up to more of a human nature thing. When you feel you could be screwed and going to TC, you are going to hate whatever is on your plate. When you win immunity, you are going to love whatever is handed to you.

So the bloated tribe of seven is safe. Shockingly, the two tribes of four ultimately eliminated each other from the challenge. They kept stepping on each other’s paths until all were knocked out.
HOW COME NLAD AND SULA DID NOT COOPERATE?

One of the biggest questions I had all season long. I have been in three or four tribe games before. Usually the smaller tribes work together to clobber the bigger tribe when a merge is drawing near.

How come they could not come to a consensus to trap Aspu, or at the very least avoid each other’s paths? And Larry had not been seen for nearly a week. Couldn’t SuLa agree to lose and boot Larry?

Obviously, this is an easy perspective to have as the game is going on and when I do not have to make alliances, talk to players, or play the challenges.

LARRY DISAPPEARS

Yeah. Larry posted twice in the group and once at camp. He never sent in a confessional, and never even voted in the first tribal challenge.

I know he quit from another ORG while SCWL was going on, and things in the ORG world going on with Cherilyn probably reduced his motivation to play.

I cannot even recall a personal conversation I had with Larry. He would submit whatever SuLa told him to do in challenges. If I recall correctly, the screencap of his round 3 puzzle wasn’t even completed by him.

In the first part of this challenge, all twelve players had to pick a square on the board. Not only did Larry never show up during the mutiny, not only did he never pick a square, but he never signed online in the tribe until THREE DAYS LATER when Tribal Council was posted at camp.
SAD PUDDING PLAYS MIND GAMES WITH RUDEZ

They were really testing Rudez this round. Is her allegiance to Cameron and Sad Pudding? Is it with Travis and his crew on Nlad? How does Corey and Nick fit into her alliances?

Everyone was desperate to figure out where Rudez stood.

TRAVIS IS AFTER RUDEZ TOO

Sadly this storyline gets uglier later on in the season, but at the time this was an interesting subplot.

Why is Travis so bent on getting Rudez out? Shouldn’t he focus on going after Sad Pudding? How is a tribe full of Nlad and Aspu refugees any sort of threat yet? Heck, none of them even have the SuLa idol.

It would be like being Germany in World War II, and you decide you are better off attacking Switzerland rather than Great Britain.

I WANT RUDEZ TO STAY

I liked Rudez from the first time she appeared in casting. Most of the alumni liked her right away as well. She not only gets the social aspect of ORGs, but she has a really good gut instinct when it comes to who she can trust.

In addition, she is the only one in that intense core of seven or eight players who never complained once. Well, she would have a criticism, but never came on the attack or did it in a mean-spirited way. When you can have a player who is intense, enjoys the game, and respects you as a host as well as others, you have a casting gold mine.

RUDEZ NEARLY GOES ON LETHAL 4 DAY RETREAT

I mentioned this last episode. The conclusion of a “first-that-was-not-really-a-first”? Rudez said she suddenly didn’t have to go on that trip.

I hope she did not have to cancel those plans. . .but if she did, it really showed her dedication to what has so far been a really ugly game.

By the way, she is in the States right now. So for you American readers out there, if you see her on the streets, please say ‘hello’!

ABANDONMENT REALLY IS A THEME FOR THE SULA TRIBE

Between their original tribes, Adam quitting on them, Cameron deciding to mutiny, and now Larry being inactive to the point he directly cost them a challenge victory, there was no better way of putting it.

Corey, Nick, and Rudez may be three of the most abandoned players I have ever seen in SCWL history. Jenn Giampsera from SCWL 1 is the only other big example who comes to mind.
THE BOARD GAME CHALLENGE WAS EXCITING TO SPEND TWO HOURS TYPING OUT

I tried to mirror this challenge as much as the real Survivor did. Everyone had their starting squares. Then they submitted their list of 35 moves.

When I announced the results, I broke down everyone’s moves into the 35 turns.

So this is how it would look:

TURN 1

Angel moves from A1 to A2.
.
.
Moises moves from S19 to S18. Turn 1 is over.

(Insert one line of commentary here.)

ASPU: 4 PLAYERS LEFT SULA: 4 PLAYERS LEFT NLAD: 4 PLAYERS LEFT

TURN 2

Repeat above.
I was typing so rapidly and double-checking everyone’s moves as I went along that my fingers were numb by the end of the challenge. How you see the turns unfold in the challenge itself is exactly how I saw it play out. I never skipped ahead because I wanted to join in on the suspense. In fact I will let you see the whole log for it right now:

Two tribes picked the strategy of huddling together around a teleport square, and one tribe is very spread out.

– Alright, you have 24 hours to send in your sequence of 35 moves privately to me. Last person/tribe standing wins immunity.

Just a recap of how the moves play out and addressing unique situations:

– Angel will be shown making the first move on the first turn because he is on B3.
– Mooises will be shown making the last move on the first turn because he is on Q19.
– If multiple players are on the Teleport square simultaneously, then whoever made their turn first on the previous turn between them would be moving first again.
– A player is eliminated when they step on a used square, or a square that is already occupied unless it is a teleport square.
– If multiple players somehow survive 35 moves, we will do a ten move playoff unless it is riduclously obvious who has more squares open to travel.
***

Okay. Let’s see how this challenge shakes out.

FIRST TURN

Angel moves first from B3 to A3.

Travis moves from C16 to D16.

Cam moves from D13 into the teleporter.

Efe moves from E12 into the teleporter.

Matt moves from E14 into the teleporter.

Lyndsay moves from F13 into the teleporter.

All of Aspu has moved. DeAnna, Timothy, and Rob cheer from the sidelines.

Corey moves from I10 to H10. Not interested in the teleporter.

Nick advances from J9 into the teleporter.

Rudez heads from K10 to L10.

Only one person from SuLa taking advantage of the teleporter.

William heads away from Mate into being Late.

Moises is the last to move for this turn. He heads from Q19 into R19.

End of the first turn. The fun is just getting started.
SECOND TURN

Much of the order remains the same.

Angel moves first again. He goes from A3 to A4.

Travis goes from D16 to E16.

Alright. Because the four people are in the teleporter are all in there together, that means Cam makes the first move.

Cam heads to D5. He is next to the northwest teleporter.

Efe is next. He heads to E5. Just north of the same northwest teleporter. Aspu has a clear strategy to stick together.

Matt finds himself in N6. Positioned one square away from the northeast teleporter. Aspu trying to trap other players if they head for the teleporters, and also buying themselves additional free squares. Their probability of winning this challenge has increased.

Lyndsay is in N14. She is just west of the southeast teleporter.

Aspu’s strategy is indeed revolving around the first two teleporters.

Corey moves next. He advances to the left where all of Beyonce’s boxes are located as well as G10.

Nick appears in E17. Just misses Travis who is one square above him! Travis and Nick are right next to each other. Somebody could be exiting from the challenge early.

William is two squares north of Rudez. He decides to head north into L7.

Rudez moves eastward once again to M10. Her and William are further apart.

Moises heads east into S19. He is in no man’s land.
THIRD TURN

All eleven players are ready for Turn Three.

Angel moves first yet again. He advances from A4 to A5.

Cameron heads into the northwest teleporter.

Efe also heads into the northwest teleporter.

Our first change in the order as Travis moves from E16 to F16.

Nick moves from E17 to F17. He moves parallel to Travis.

Corey moves further up into G9.

William heads further up into L6.

Rudez heads east into N10.

Matt heads into the northeast teleporter.

Lyndsay heads into the southeast teleporter.

All four members of Aspu enter buy up another turn as they are occupying the only three teleporters that can still be used.

Moises heads north into S18. Nobody is around whatsoever. Will somebody from Aspu be joining him on the next turn?
FOURTH TURN

Angel decides to move around from the column of The Fonz into B5.

Cam finds himself in A10. A nice piece of real estate is down in that southwest corner.

Efe finds himself just above Cam as he lands in A9. Things not looking too good for Efe as Cam is to his south and Angel is not far away to the north and east.

If Travis moves south he is dead. Luckily he did not as he enters G16.

Nick switches it up as he heads into F18. He really has liked his fighter jets over these past two rounds.

Corey moves further up into G8.

William copies the same strategy as he heads into L5.

Rudez heads down into N11.

Lyndsay uses the teleporter. She is in Q1.

Matt uses the teleporter and is now in R15. Even though they are no longer on the same tribe, Matt and Moises find themselves in close proximities on their own little island of the board.

Moises is in S17 as he continues to hug the eastern wall.

Somewhere in the realm of forty spaces have been used. Everyone survives.

FIFTH TURN

The order is beginning to shift.

Efe makes the first move of the round. He heads into B9.

Cam moves parallel to him into B10. No communication folly between them. If Cam takes advantage of the southwest corner he has a free eighteen spaces to use.

Angel also moving east into C5.

Nick does a snake-like path as he heads west into E18. Those in the south seem to be having the most success thus far.

Corey moves further up into G7. He is doing a good job of staying out of the action.

Travis moves from G16 into H16. A lot of free space surrounds Travis too.

William heads from L5 to L4. Similar strategy to Corey.

Rudez heads south into N12. Two more moves south and she will be our first casualty.

Lyndsay moves from Q1 to P1. Only person close to her is Matt, which is probably a good sign.

Matt moves from R15 to R14. Moving away from Moises.

Moises concludes another turn as he heads further up into S16.

That concludes Turn Five. Eleven squares gone just like that. About a sixth of our board is gone.

SIXTH TURN

Efe moves first. He advances from B9 to C9.

Cam moves next from B10 to C10. If they keep moving east, they will step on Corey’s early moves.

Angel makes his move from C5 to D5. Heading right for a teleporter that is virtually blocked. If he moves south he runs into Cam’s second move, if he moves east he runs into Efe’s second move, and if he moves west he runs into his own move. North will be his only option.

Nick moves south into E19 to slither around the southern portion of the ‘E’ and ‘F’ columns.

Corey moves from G7 to G6. He does not appear to be in any immediate danger.

Travis goes from H16 to I16. He has a ton of potential space at his disposal. He has at least four free spaces between him and any used square.

William moves up into L3.

Rudez inches closer to Lyndsay’s second square as she continues to move south into N13. She needs to change direction very soon.

Lyndsay moves down into P2. Her, Will, and Corey look to be in the best shape thus far, and all three are from different tribes.

Matt moves from R14 to R13. Him and Lyndsay may be paralyzing Moises’ moves in the long run.

Moises concludes the sixth turn in a row as he goes into S15.

A couple people are only one move away from landing on the used square of somebody from the opposing tribe.

4 – ASPU 4 – NLAD 3 – SULA

(More to come)

SEVENTH TURN

Efe moves east into D9.

Cam moves east into E9.

Angel’s turn to move. He has a 75% chance of being our first casualty.
.
.
.
He heads into E5 and lands on a used square from Efe’s second turn.

Nlad is down to three, and that reduces the rate of people using up squares on each turn to give everyone a bit more breathing space.

Nick’s strategy continues as he goes into F19.

Corey moves up into G5.

Travis moves further east into J16.

William moves up into L2.

Rudez is free to move east or west. West would give her a ton of room.
.
.
.
Sadly she moves south into Lyndsay’s second sqaure.

Rudez is out. And because Larry did not send in his starting square, SuLa is down to two.

Lyndsay moves from P2 to P3.

Matt moves from R13 to R12.

Moises can only move up otherwise he is out of the challenge. . .
.
.
.
Moises saves himself and is up to S14 as he concludes our seventh turn.

4 – ASPU 3 – NLAD 2 – SULA
EIGHTH TURN

We lost two people that round. Down to nine.

Efe moves into E9.

Cam repeats the parallel strategy as he is now in E10.

Nick moves from F19 to G19.

Corey advances up to G4.

Travis heads south into J17. Nick’s path is rapidly closing.

Will advances upwards into L1. Away from the action. Which way will he turn?

Lyndsay goes from P3 down to P4.

Matt goes from R12 to Q12. Moises is free to move as far up as possible as it stands.

Moises concludes yet another turn for us. As long as he moves up he is good. . .
.
.
.
Moises moves west and runs into Matt’s fifth square. Moises is out of the challenge.

4 – ASPU 2 – NLAD 2 – SULA
NINTH TURN

Eight still remain.

Efe moves from E9 to F9. He needs to move up on the next turn to stay alive.

Cam moves from E10 to F10. He needs to move down on the next turn to stay alive.

Corey moves up into G3.

Nick stops the snake strategy and moves east into H19.

Travis continues moving south into J18.

William decides to head towards Lyndsay as he is now in M1.

Lyndsay also moves east into Q4.

Matt moves west to arrive at P12. Close to another teleporter.

Everyone survives the round.

TENTH TURN

Eight remain.

Efe must move north. . .
.
.
.
But instead steps on Corey’s third square. He is out.

Cam must move south. . .
.
.
.
But instead collides with Corey’s second square. He is also out.

Just like that Aspu is cut in half.

2 – ASPU 2 – NLAD 2 – SUPA

Corey moves up into G2.

Nick decides to head to I19.

Travis moves south into J19. Nick’s exit is closed shut. He needs to resume the snake strategy to last as long as he can. Travis has a ton of wide open space if he goes east.

William moves south into M2.

Matt advances to O12. He cannot move west or else he steps on Rudez’s fifth square.

Lyndsay is the first to end a turn as she heads south into Q5.

2 – ASPU 2 – SULA 2 – NLAD

ELEVENTH TURN

Two players from each tribe still in the game.

Corey completes G as he finishes off G1.

Nick is hugging the southern wall. If he heads east he is done. North is his only option.
.
.
.
Nick moves north and extends his life a little longer. Only five more possible moves remain.

Travis must move east to be in extremely good shape
.
.
.
But he goes into I19. Nick’s tenth square. Travis is out of the challenge in an upset.
2 – ASPU 2 – SULA 1 – NLAD

William is the only one who remains from Nlad.

Matt needs to move north or south to stay alive.
.
.
.
But he collides with Rudez’s fifth square in N12. Matt is also out.

2 – SULA 1 – ASPU 1 – NLAD

Just like that SuLa is in the lead, but Nick is hanging on by his fingertips.

Lyndsay, in a surprising move, heads east into R5.
TWELFTH TURN

Down to Nick, Corey, Lyndsay, and William.

Corey moves into H1. If he goes down ‘H’ column he will be in great shape.

Nick moves west into H18. Misses defeat.

Will moves south into M4.

Lyndsay heads east to S5.

THIRTEENTH TURN

Corey moves east to I1. Edging closer to Will’s long established path.

Nick survives again as he goes into G18.

Will heads to M5.

Lyndsay is now located in S6.

FOURTEENTH TURN

Nick moves up into G17. He moves in the closed box.

Corey moves to J1. Two squares away from William.

William moves into M6. Matt’s second square is to his right.

Lyndsay is now in S7.

FIFTEENTH TURN

Nick’s only available spot is east.
.
.
.
And Nick does just that. He only has one more empty square, and is bound to lose.

Corey moves east into K1. If he moves east just one more he will step on Will’s eighth square. If he moves south and sweeps west he will have a great shot at winning.

Lyndsay moves into S8. Six squares away from Moises.
SIXTEENTH TURN

Nick has one empty square to the east. . .
.
.
.
And he uses it. Nick is safe. Although Will and Lyndsay are virtually guaranteed to have one more free spot to move.

Corey moves next. The only way he dies is if he goes east, and loses all hope for SuLa. . .
.
.
.
And he does move to L1. Corey is out as he left four columns that had seven squares each empty.

1 – ASPU 1 – SULA 1 – NLAD

Lyndsay moves south into S9.

SEVENTEENTH TURN

Nick is boxed in completely. He has nowhere to move. Nick is eliminated. SuLa’s disadvantage of having only three people came back to bite them as they finish this challenge in last place.

SuLa will be the first ones heading to Tribal Council.

William moves east into Nate Dogg. Er, square N8. He could potentially screw Lyndsay over.

Lyndsay heads to S10.

1 – NLAD 1 – ASPU

EIGHTEENTH TURN

Will heads south into N9. One more move south and he will be stepping on Rudez’s third square. Otherwise he is good.

Lyndsay heads west into R10. Her and Will draw closer.

1 – NLAD 1 – ASPU

NINETEENTH TURN

The question is if Will moves south into N10. If he does this challenge is over. . .
.
.
.
.
.
And he does. He steps on a used square. Will is out. Nlad is done in this challenge.
Aspu pulls out a huge tribal immunity win!

Lyndsay finishes off all thirty-five of her moves. She still had one more move left after that. Lyndsay did twice as well as Will, and destroyed everyone in this challenge.

***

Congratulations Aspu. You win tribal immunity and stay intact with your huge tribe of seven. Everyone is safe. You have the next two days or so off. Another clue for the tribal idol will be delivered.

SuLa, huge disadvantage with only having three players. Two of your three were the last four standing, but that was not enough.

The four of you will take your first trip to Tribal Council, but due to Adam’s quit and Cameron’s mutiny, only four of you are attending.

I will see you guys in a couple of hours.

Nlad, you positioned yourself wisely around the board, but unfortunately a couple of early exits and one bad move can cost you in this challenge.

Just like how one bad move can cost you in this game.

It is one of those rare situations where I will see you for Tribal Council the following day. Tribal Council should be interesting with the four of you. I will see you guys sometime tomorrow evening. Better start thinking about who it is going to be.
LYNDSAY HATES THE CHALLENGE MORE THAN ANYONE BUT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE WIN. . .SHE IS ODD.

Lyndsay is someone who made me confused all season long. I could never tell if she was enjoying this game, liked me, hated me, hated others, loved others, no idea.

My biggest memory of Lyndsay in SCWL will be when she won the challenge for her tribe and her reaction was “this challenge sucked, but whatever”.

Watch out for Lyndsay down the road as she really does make an impact on this game.

And let me clarify: I love Lyndsay’s personality in this game. She has a very Courtney Yates-like attitude. Between her being unaware of how to answer TC questions, and not caring in the slightest that she won a crucial challenge makes for some great comic relief that this season really needed.

TIMOTHY NEEDS MORE AGENCY–SAD PUDDING AND CAM WILL TAKE HIM NOWHERE

This is the point where I wondered if Timothy was going to fall to the youth card. Anybody under the age of 18 always does terrible in this series. And with Timothy at the age of fifteen, I became worried that he would be a really quiet exit whenever Aspu loses their next challenge.

Right now he seems glued to Sad Pudding. Sad Pudding is sticky. Can he remove himself or will he be led off a cliff like a lemming? Time will tell.

NO IDEA IF CAM WILL STICK WITH SAD PUDDING–HE IS A WILDCARD

Wildcard. I finally came up with the best way to describe Cam. He has already gone through numerous alliances by round four. How long is it before he feels distrust with Sad Pudding? They are the one alliance who will -never- take him beyond their inner circle.
THE GAME IS PROBABLY MORE INTERESTING THAT ASPU WON IMMUNITY. IT PROTECTS EFE AND LYNDSAY WHO SEEM WILLING TO SHAKE UP THE GAME. OR WOULD TIMOTHY HAVE GONE HOME?

I initially wanted Aspu to lose this challenge because of their huge numbers advantage, but after the fact I realized it was probably best for the game since Sad Pudding + Cameron would have sent a major player like Efe or Lyndsay home. DeAnna wants Efe gone which means Sad Pudding wants Efe gone.

Sad Pudding seems to recognize that Cam and Tim as their fourth and fifth respectively may be the way to go if they want to win this game. This opens up a potential storyline of everyone else going against them down the road. When people on the majority tribe just need to make it a couple steps further to shake up this game, Survivor becomes really interesting.

LARRY ASKS TRIBE TO VOTE HIM OUT AFTER BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS

After going missing for the first 72 hours of this round, Larry magically signs on to post in his tribe camp that they will be stronger without him.

Yeah, I have nothing else to say there.

IF I WAS UBER STRICT, MOISES WOULD HAVE NOT EVEN SENT ANYTHING FOR THE CHALLENGE

Ah yes, the minor issue with Moises during the challenge. Nlad always had a habit of either ignoring instructions or thinking that their method was better because it is obvious to them.

This was one of those times. They came up with a visual chart of how each player would move. They all unanimously agreed. Travis, William, and Angel all sent in their list of 35 moves. As for Moises? There were thirty minutes before the deadline and he had not sent in anything. I messaged him immediately. Moises responds to just use the visual at the tribe camp.

So I did seeing how he repeatedly agreed to that route in camp. If I ignored it, the outcome would only change to Aspu possibly winning with two members standing rather than one.

From this point forward, Moises would ignore basic rules more and more frequently. This comes into play during the next episode.

WILLIAM PAYS THE PRICE BECAUSE OF THE AMERICAN ALLIANCE. I WAS SHOCKED MOISES DID NOT GO

Yeah, the TCs this round were really dull. Because SuLa finished 3rd, they went to TC first because their player would have the lower ranking of being 15th place. Nlad would go to TC 24 hours later where they would vote out somebody in 14th place because of their better finish in the challenge.

Don’t you love how much I pay attention to formatting?

While SuLa was at TC, Nlad members were wondering when the heck TC would be. Again, I repeatedly said the 2nd place tribe did not visit until the following day, but they were all anxious to vote out William. The Texan Trio discontinued their Southern Hospitality as they sent William home in a unanimous vote.

William the Canuck pretty much saw this coming, but he had just a little bit of hope that Angel would be gone.

ALL TRAVIS HAD TO DO WAS VOTE WITH WILLIAM TO ELIMINATE MOISES.

I knew Moises and Angel would vote together against William, but I thought Travis might have William’s back. William seemed like a loyal soldier, and would never challenge Travis for power. All Travis had to do was vote Moises, and Moises would go home in a deadlock due to his two past votes from Matt and William in round two.

But alas, the deadlock did not happen as the three votes were there to boot William. I liked William, but I think he only participated in these four rounds out of kindness rather than genuine enjoyment of the game.

ON THE HORIZON: SULA AND ASPU ARE PROJECTED TO VERY LIKELY HAVE A WIN

I think Nlad is unaware just how stacked Aspu is in terms of challenge performers, and underestimate the strength of SuLa’s harmonious camp. Nlad is not only disorganized, but they appear to have the weakest players in terms of challenges on their tribe.

WILL NLAD REGRET THEIR DECISION? I THINK SO

Between the threats to quit, the fights with Matt, and overall being the weakest person in challenges, I thought Moises should have been voted out in this scenario. William appeared to be a far more stable and reliable option in terms of challenges, alliances, and social bonds. You would not see William get into ugly conflicts with other players.

I kept expecting Moises to leave any moment or do something that could get him ejected. He appeared to be more agitated with each day that passed in this game. He has never performed well in a challenge. And in a game where you have only three tribe members to use over the next two rounds, you are putting a lot of pressure on a guy who may not be able to perform.

They may not recognize it at the time, but I feel like Angel and Travis will regret discarding Warren and William so quickly. If only William was willing to vote Moises in round two when the votes were there.

LARRY TC WAS REALLY BORING

Oh god. That was 24 hours of a whole lot o’ nothin. There was ZERO suspense. Among all of the other things Larry missed this round, he did not even answer his TC questions.

All he did was say “vote me out”, quickly messaged me his self-vote, and was never heard from before or after that.

I cannot even recall what I asked at Tribal Council.

In fact, the Larry boot may be the most lopsided case of inactivity within a season since Brian Kosek’s voteout in SCWL 1. That’s really going back a ways.

And somehow Brian Kosek survived four trips to Tribal Council without going home.

And I never thought I would reference Brian Kosek nearly five seasons later.

CAMERON IS THE ONLY ONE TO AVOID TC ALL GAME

Thanks to a mutiny right before SuLa’s first trip to TC, Cameron has yet to go to Tribal Council. Everyone else has made either one or two trips.

Say what you want about Cameron in the first four rounds, but the guy certainly knows not only how to find individual immunity and a hidden immunity idol, but tribal immunity follows him everywhere he goes. Even during a double boot episode.

WAS THE DOUBLE BOOT REALLY THAT EXCITING FOR BEING A SERIES FIRST?

Considering we lost INV Larry and a UTR William in two straightforward votes. . .I would say not. Maybe the twist only accomplished setting the stage for the thirteen active players that remain.

6.4D SCWL 6 Episode 4 Confessionals

ANGEL,

Controller

CAMERON,

Whoooooo
now all my friends can hate me!

I wish to mutiny to Aspu

And therein commences either the best or worst decision in my Survivor life. Namely, everyone else is F—ING NUTS.
Rudez has been lying to me. Matt has been lying to me. Travis has been lying about me to Matt.
And I feel like my best hope is just to stick with the Aspu main force. Even if I’m just the tagalong kid I don’t really care at this rate.
Rob and DeAnna, irony of all ironies, have been the best, most honest people to me this game.
Quite frankly I’d rather be blindsided by them than to be around characters as volatile as Rudez.

So now I’m suffering from Survivor PTSD. Already. In the game I find it impossible to trust people nowadays since practically every other person I know has been toying with me. I wonder what it is about me that the game seems to revolve around. Or maybe it’s because my game revolves around me.
It’s just now I’m over there on Aspu, and I should be happy, but I really can’t, cause my Survivor game has been constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. I think that were I to go home it’d be more like putting me out of my misery.

Holy f—
the stars are aligned in our favor.
I’ve never been to Tribal Council
and I’m gonna place 13th in a worst case scenario. Wow. I just wow.
I’m just so happy.

I can’t believe everything worked out. I mutinied on a better tribe, and so did the guy who I gave the II necklace to, who then survived to mutiny over here and do pretty much the entire challenge for us.
Also, I have the record for longest stint this season without Tribal Council.
WOOOOOO
EAT IT NLAD
EAT IT SULA

Mixed feelings on William being voted out. On one hand, he was the only remaining Nlad that was even remotely decent to me. He seems like a genuinely decent dude stranded with a gang of nutjobs. On the other hand, that’s a good reason why I’m glad he’s not in the game anymore. I’d vote for him before any of the other Nlads in front of a jury.

COREY,

Confessional round 4 – So this game is off to a wacky start. its pretty calm except for matt stiring things up . I thought about mutinying to nlad but I want to prove to rudez and nick and larry im with them, I don’t appreciate Cameron leaving. I am pretty sure cam and matt will work with Deanna , I love this group of 4 on my tribe I think we have a real shot at winning every challenge. I haven’t been as vocal and aggressive as I usually am or want to but with a lot of these players theres no real good gameplay going on so it makes it hard to approach people and tell them things about the next move. All 4 of sula are getting along well, I talk to rudez almost everyday and We are in alliance so I like my chances of staying if we happen to lose this boardgame challenge. I would think we would vote out larry if we lost but , id prefer to win.
DEANNA,

Confessional #7: Mutiny
Christmas came early when the Mutiny was announced. Ever since Matt has been stuck on the blown-up Nlad tribe, this is what we needed. I was excited – but now to come up with a plan to get Matt safe with us.
Then it hit me. We form a super-tribe to take us to the merge. I quickly proposed my plan to the Misfits. We invite Matt, Cameron, Rudez and a lamb to join Aspu. The Misfits loved the idea, and Efe started talking about how delicious our lamb would be for Christmas dinner. (Which made me laugh. A lot.)
I proposed the idea to Cameron and Rudez. Before I could even finish typing up the proposal Cameron was jumping on board. YES! Everything was going according to plan. Not to mention I would LOVE to work with Cameron post merge. I think he would be a great ally. He seems very trustworthy. Rudez however, is a different story. She immediately declined. There was no changing her mind. This shows me one of two things. 1)She cannot be trusted. 2) She has a “better” deal elsewhere. This is just confirming what I knew about Rudez in the beginning. It is unfortunate but it has proven that she cannot be trusted at all. She will be replaced in all of the final plans I had in mind, but that isn’t really a problem. Especially now that I have Cameron as my own ally.
Next finding a lamb. The Misfits originally wanted Nick, but of course he said no. Then, Matt suggested Travis. I thought it was perfect. Play up to his insecurities, tell him he has the majority over here. Also truthfully? It WOULD be better for him here. He is on the bottom at Nlad. There would be WAY more wiggle room on a tribe of 8 than a tribe of 4. Even taking my own selfish needs out of the way, I could not understand why he would pass up the deal! His loss, and if he goes home soon on Nlad, it will take all my willpower not to say “I told you so.”
The night before the Mutiny, without having a lamb, Efe started to get all Paranoid-In-Chief on us again. This is when I convinced Lyndsay to share that she had the Aspu idol. It is essential for them to think we are safe, solid and unified. I don’t need anyone thinking one of the Misfits is hiding anything. It seemed to work and Efe seemed to calm down. For now.

After the Mutiny went off and Cam and Matt came over everyone was so happy over at Aspu. Everyone is getting along great and we have a kick-ass team filled with awesome people. We’re smart, all of us and I think that our brains can take us far in this game.
Then the new challenge hit. INSTANTLY morale became low. A luck challenge mixed with a double elimination? My heart sank. I spent hours thinking about the challenge yesterday, despite it being my turn to sit out. Everything I could think of was absolute s— because of the unknown variables. I wish this challenge was more like Survivor where you get to see your opponents moves before you move. That is more like a game of chess, and less like blindly running into a heard of cattle smeared with deadly contact poisons. I feel that this challenge on a double elimination is extremely unfair, and I can see those sentiments echoed across the entire game. I really hope I am wrong about this, but I really can’t see a good outcome. That being said, Matt worked for hours on this. He didn’t even come to bed until 3:30am last night. He has worked his ass off trying to get us the best possible strategy, and I really hope it pays off. Not just for the Misfits, but for Matt who has had to deal with s—storm after s—storm this entire game.
Last night all I could dream about was this damn challenge. It was a complete nightmare. Hopefully we emerge victorious at the end of this challenge because damnit, we need it.

Confessional #8: The New Aspu
For the two days leading up the challenge, everyone was trying to stay positive. It was like no one wanted to jinx what was a good possibility of us going to tribal. We chatted endlessly about the challenge. Matt throwing out ideas, and watching Cam, Lyndsay and Efe try to come up with strategies. Matt eventually came up with about 4 different strategies, and looking at them all – they were smart. The best one was the Venus Fly Trap, and that is the one he decided to go with.
The starting spots were announced, and we hated to see that SuLa might be doing the same strategy as us, and so the Venus Fly Trap had to be changed. Then out of nowhere, Rudez started talking to Rob. She talks, a lot. Rob was playing her like a fiddle, we had a general idea on what they were going to do and Matt went to work trying to trap them where they were going. We thought they were going to use the teleporters more – but either way, it worked out for us.
I knew that it was going to come down to a show-down between Nlad and Aspu. Nlad was playing it safe – which was smart, but I think know that we are smarter. Matt is a genius with these type of things, and he literally worked for hours and hours to get it perfect. One night I woke up, and it was almost 4am and Matt was coming to bed. I asked him why he was up so late and he told me he had been working on the challenge all night. If for no other reason, we deserved to win because of how hard Matt worked to try to keep his new tribe safe.
Results day. Everyone was nervous. I had butterflies in my stomach for half the day. There were definite whisperings on what might happen should we loose, and everyone was just hoping that it wouldn’t come down to that. Leading up until 5pm we had a countdown going. People would jump in and say “2 hours, 10 mintes!” or “1 hour, 18 minutes!” or “47 minutes!” all the way down to the announcement time. Everyone was online. We sat there, waiting, waiting, waiting. Time felt like it was slinking by. I was sitting on the couch when I saw the notification that the results were up. I jumped up and ran out of the room with my phone because I wanted to read it from top to bottom while I knew Matt would just skip to the end.
Laying in my bed the notifications on my phone were going nuts, but I refused to look. I was reading the moves, picturing them in my head, and I was shaking. I had to use both hands to steady the phone. I got to the end of round 18 – William vs Lyndsay. Excited, I went to click… but there were no more comments. My phone had frozen! Running back to the living room I frantically grabbed at my laptop to read the end. WE WON!!!!! I was cheering and bouncing and had I had fireworks, I would have set them off.
Aspu was ecstatic. Everyone was screaming and cheering and congratulating each other. This was a win that was definitely needed for our newly formed tribe. It helped everyone bond, and I knew that this challenge was going to take us strong into the merge – and hopefully to the end of the game.
Yesterday, the mood stayed. Everyone is happy, giddy, and so proud to be part of Aspu. I created a fun little challenge for us to do in our down time, and I hope they liked it. It was meant to help us bond more. I think it worked.
Efe will never know how close he was to going home this week. He was spilling things to Rudez, being paranoid and generally making Sad Pudding worried. Efe is the bottom of our alliance now because of his actions, but it just has to happen. He is the one most likely to flip if he doesn’t feel comfortable, and as such I will be keeping a really close eye on him.
Having Sad Pudding together here on Aspu is great. We are easily able to share information and we don’t have a reason to pretend to not be working together. Rob has also done an amazing job on manipulating Rudez for information, playing into her hatred of Matt, meanwhile I play the other side, the “I’m sure things will be ok” and hopefully thing will help her trust me just a little. She will most likely make it to merge, and I would like her to come to me rather than say, Efe.
I am also spending my down time reinforcing some of my social game, and I plan on doing more work on that today. Also, I have been looking at the clues for the immunity idol with Tim. They are really really hard. I think we probably need a second clue to get an idea on what type of cipher we need.
I am excited and nervous for this next challenge. If we can win, it is going to be amazing. I think I have set us up to go really far in this game, and I am hoping that continues. This next chapter is going to be important for Aspu, important for the Misfits and important for Sad Pudding. I can’t wait!
EFE,

Confession: marc is gone, and if we lose again the situation will get very dangerous for one of the Misfits. Me and lyndsay think Rob might have the real idol and deanne and him is a duo. I am hoping for the best, expecting the worse. I feel like me and tim are in the bottom and lynsday did pretty good job making herself a swing vote! The plan is if we go to tribal again me tim and lyns gonna vote for rob and survive. I really don’t wanna lose any members but in survivor everyone gotta have plan B for the worst case scenerio

Confession: Our two lambs came as we ordered, but there was a twist as I know, we haven’t order a lambs with HII!!! We know that Cam has one and I personally think that Matt has one too. That worries me a lot. So I am not sure If we gonna able to eat them know, I guess we have to wait for them to reach a good size ( ‘make them plump with lies’.) Cam might be hard to chew but If we cook perfect It won’t be a problem. Hope we keep wining and live happily with out Lambs.
P.S: We are not cooking turkey for this Christmas, We are going for Lambs
YUMMY!

Confession:matt is a great person. I liked him and he put a big effort on the challenge. It’s gonna be a tense tribal If we lose

MATT,

Saturday night confessions time.

I should’ve been writing more, I’ve been busy and then this past week has been a personal-life screwball so I’ve been taking it easy. Going to Aspu helped accommodate that, but I’ll catch you up on all the events since my last confessional in several episodic entries.
Episode 1: Matt’s wacky Nlad adventure!
Nlad was a clusterf— of paranoia and betrayal. I was pulled into the “6 Alliance” very late on draft day. It was Cameron, Rudez, Angel, Moises, Travis, and myself. We kicked ass in the draft competition and make the team how we wanted to. Not getting onto Aspu with the rest of Sad Pudding seemed like a blessing because De and Rob could control Aspu, and I could integrate into Nlad and we could merge later and destroy. What could possibly go wrong? Travis. Travis is what could go wrong.
We had been debating who to exile. Warren, William, and Corey seemed like the best choices. Warren hadn’t talked to anyone save for Rudez, William was likewise very quiet, and Corey was supposedly in Adam’s pocket. That would’ve left Nlad in a very solid position with a good chance at winning a ton of comps. But who was on the bottom of the alliance? It was hard to say. That didn’t stop Travis from assuming he was, however, and he conspired with the three exiles as well as with Moises and Angel, to blindside the rest of us. In a flash Cam was gone and the 6 Alliance was over before it began. And that was the start of the nightmare.
I railed against Travis once I figured out he was responsible for the blindside. I don’t apologize at all, either. It was a s—ty move ruining what could’ve been a fantastic alliance and he did it out of paranoia and jealousy. It was then that the conspiring against Nlad began. Rudez was onboard but she knew she was going next. Corey was being sent to vote Cam and Rudez off the newly formed SuLa tribe. That left me behind as the sacrificial goat to be booted at first tribal. But what Nlad didn’t realize was we had already asked you about transferring Cam’s immunity and what they thought was a goat was about to turn into a ram.
I goaded and taunted everyone on Nlad relentlessly. Without any knowledge of how their alliance was structured I did my best to create suspicion between them. I likely did no lasting damage but I did make sure I was safe in our first loss and saw Warren go home. Before that vote I had both Travis and William saying they’d vote for Moises, but it was apparent after the vote that their allegiances lay elsewhere. Nlad was hell. No one talked to me, I had no idea what any sort of long-term strategy was, but it really didn’t matter to me. I was going to ensure they all went home before me so I set plans in motion.

Episode 2: Idol Threats
With Cam and Rudez on SuLa my relationship with them waned. We were still aligned, but we were no alliance. Through De I found out that Rudez had told Lyndsay about some of our conversations. Lyndsay had mentioned to De about Rudez claiming Aspu had a leak, on account of De and I being in our final 2 and telling each other everything. The only option was Rudez telling Lyndsay so I started watching what I said to her.
Rudez had approached me to help find SuLa’s idol. I found it within 30 minutes. I clued her in to the ?v= being a YouTube link and using an online tool had a list of 120 links to click on. It was easy as 1-2-3 and with my suspicions of her growing, I talked to Cam about his feeling about her long-term. We both agreed she was a bit shifty so I gave Cam the idol with the plan that we’d tell Rudez I found it when she was asleep, and wanted to be sure one of them got it before someone else on SuLa was able to figure out the idol link. Little did I know that Rudez hadn’t shared her clue with anyone, including Cam, which not only added to my suspicions of her but cemented the decision to give the idol to Cam exclusively. But Cam relented and shared it with her too, despite my reservations.
Upon finding out about this, Rudez got very upset saying she felt betrayed. Things weren’t the same between us from then on, but I had my reasons and her anger over Cam getting access to the idol and not just her further reinforced how this alliance wasn’t her first priority, as it was for Cam and me.
These were the days leading up the mutiny. Rob, in the meantime, found Aspu’s idol using the same method as I did. Both idols, SuLa and Aspu, were promised to me in the event Nlad went to tribal. I relentlessly taunted Nlad with the news that I would be immune but I disguised it by faking a screenshot from you using the message you sent Rob, but substituting Nlad. I’ve attached it. I think I did a really good job.
So fake idol in hand and two actual idol codes in reserve, I was ready for whatever may come. But mutiny came, which I wasn’t counting on.

Episode 3: Mutiny Ahoy!
Mutiny turned this game around for me. In every possible way. It changed my game plan from destroyer to conquerer. I immediately mutinied to Aspu and told Cam and Rudez they should do likewise. Cam followed by Rudez got very upset. Again. Meanwhile in a conversation with Travis I discovered Cam had told him about SuLa’s idol, and how it was a YouTube link and other details. That was information 3 people knew. Me, Cam, and Rudez. I immediately got upset at Cam. Then after a night of contemplation and consideration the truth emerged: Rudez had been the one to tell Travis, not Cam, and Travis was simply trying to drive a wedge between Cam and me on the orders of Rudez. I confronted Rudez and she got incredibly defensive. I confronted Travis and he confirmed it. The last remains of the 6 Alliance were gone, Cam and I were off to Aspu, and Sad Pudding was reunited and stronger than ever.
I looked at Aspu compared to Nlad and SuLa and realized a huge truth: we were going to stomp them and this game was Sad Pudding’s to lose. We were in control of everything.

Episode 4: Post-mutiny and the worst challenge evar.
Our first post-mutiny challenge was a mind bender. We discussed who was sitting out and who was participating. Sad Pudding decided at least one of us needed to sit out, to ensure we were distributed in the challenges. De and Rob both decided to sit out. It was of no real matter, as I was taking control of this challenge and didn’t need any input.
I felt after the reveal hinted at Nlad and SuLa working together. They were spaced out almost perfectly and in the right way to cover the entire field guaranteeing our demise. Both tribes had plenty of reasons to do it, too. Nlad wins, SuLa and Aspu goes to tribal with SuLa voting off the MIA Larry and us getting rid of whoever. I expressed this and suddenly we were hearing that Efe had gone to Rudez with this info. That was concerning, first of all, but also comforting because Aspu had its first goat. If we lost, Efe was gone.
In the meantime Rob had been reaching out to Rudez and getting quite a nice rapport. Rudez likes to talk. A lot. Through some good manipulation we had a good idea what to do with our moves, but nothing is ever guaranteed. We also started a rumor that I was making trouble for everyone on Aspu, giving Rudez reason to want to work with us and trust Rob.
The day that followed was insane. This challenge was incredibly complex with no real information or strategy other than trying to guess where everyone else was and then not being there. I don’t want to say we got lucky in winning, but in reality we did. We celebrated and Aspu was a great place to be.
Post-win Rudez started messaging De. It’s very, very apparent she’s working on a post-merge strategy of getting in good with the powers that be on the tribe. Thinking I am on the bottom of the tribe, she’s ensuring she’s in a good place with them so go against me once we merge. She has no f—ing clue and it’s going to be funny as hell to watch. Sad Pudding isn’t going to taste very good to her and I can’t wait to see her choke.
So now we have our next challenge coming. I’ll help if I can but I like our odds.

Oh addendum confessional:
This game-wide idol clue is a motherf—er. Rob and I have been wrecked trying to make sense of it. We think it might be related to the SCWL 5 puzzle where you remove consonants and whatnot, but then again there are 12 questions and that would fit your YouTube format perfectly. Which means one of the questions translates to ?v= and then the rest translate to the 11 characters in a video ID. But we need a second clue which means we need help.
ROB,

Confessional: This challenge sucks. That is all.

RUDEZ,

Confessional:
Logan you horrible man.. bringing about the mutiny now Way to keep us on our toes… should’ve expected it though!
So from what I’ve heard Matt and Cam have jumped over to Aspu in a rash move to become the bottom 2 over there.. they wanted me to join them, but due to the recent developments in my relationship with Matt, I didn’t want to be anywhere near him.. Also, I’d be completely at Rob and DeAnna’s mercy.. no thank you
Travis is running his mouth quite a bit and has declared that he will be joining SuLa.. meh.. I do not want him on my tribe, I don’t trust him for a second.. I just hope that he doesn’t cause us to lose challenges..
So the plan is still to join Lyndsay (and now Efe) at the merge.. I’m trying to solidify my relationship with Nick so that the 4 of us can go in strong.. Will think more on merge strategies once I get there though..
Some people in this game just don’t think.. that’ll be their undoing.. hopefully my emotions aren’t mine!

Oh.. I also had to make a F2 alliance with Corey.. I tried to avoid it, but couldn’t anymore.. I hate lying, but my F2 alliance is with Lyndsay.. it’s good to keep Corey close though, we’ll see how that goes

Confessional:
So, despite losing Cam, I’m feeling quite positive about the SuLa tribe.. everyone here wants to be here and wants to stay here. I’m glad Travis decided no to come, he wasn’t welcome here..
Now this challenge, I love it!! This challenge is awesome.. and the fact that the other tribes are complaining so much about it means that they don’t think there is a strategy.. and there’s definitely a strategy! So, we’ll see if the best tribe wins..
The double elimination, however, is not something I’m a fan of.. I was hoping that SuLa would get an opportunity to catch up the numbers.. but if there’s a double elimination, at least one tribe is going to be reduced to 3 people.. and therefore have no chance anymore.. Also only 2 people have been eliminated from the game, we’re going to double that in one night?
I guess what I was hoping is that we had 3 challenges before the merge, and that Aspu was eligible to lose all 3 of them, and therefore join us in numbers.. but now Aspu is only eligible to lose 2 of their people, which kinda sucks..
Will still try my best to ensure that SuLa ends up on top in this challenge and doesn’t have to go to tribal!

Confessional:
Ah man, today sucks… We lost the immunity challenge, like flat out lost! It’s SuLa’s first loss, and it hurts! The challenge was great and I liked our strategy of not using the teleporters cause everyone expected us to, but my routes were just not good enough.. I feel like I should’ve anticipated William going left, but who goes left and then right, it makes no sense to me..
So yeah, I took the lead in that challenge and we lost.. But we almost won, with the disadvantage of 3 players.. Which is the only reason Larry’s going home (I hope I’m not being blindsided).. I wish he’d have shown up.. but that’s in the past now, just need to look forward..
So I think Larry’s going home.. Which would be best for all of us.. I’ve worked my ass off on all the challenges, so I really hope they wouldn’t want to send me.. honestly I don’t know how it got out that I did Larry’s puzzle for him in the previous challenge (which wasn’t against the rules), but everyone thinks it’s cause Larry didn’t show up.. Larry was actually doing me a favour..
Matt had upset me earlier that morning by betraying me with the idol, and I found doing my puzzle cheered me up.. and then Travis tried to start a fight, so asked Larry if I could do his to cheer up again, and he complied.. I also did Corey’s You know, cause it wasn’t against the rules!
So Matt may have brought his tribe to victory, but I still think he’s not nearly as smart as he thinks he is.. I mean, he is going around Aspu telling people that he’s the smartest, which isn’t a very smart thing to do.. I just don’t want to have to deal with the future gloating of Matt about winning this challenge for Aspu.. He hasn’t spoken to me in a while due to another fight, and right after he wins I get messages telling me what to do.. Go away Matt, you’re not welcome here!
Also, apparently I’ve got a hater in Travis on Nlad, who is trying to convince people on SuLa to vote me out.. I’m not sure what his deal is.. but Travis sucks, and is far too obsessed with me for it to be healthy!
So I have a final 2 alliance with Corey, and have promised Nick that I’m with him, and a final 2 alliance with Lyndsay since day 0.. this is the first time in this game that I’ve considered going against Lyndsay.. although, she’d have to turn on the entire Aspu at the merge for me to get to the end with her, which could cost some vital votes!!! But really, that’s not my concern right now.. just want to get to the merge!!

TIMOTHY,
confession: YES. thank god tribal went the way it did. actually though they were all going to flip on me this round.

6.4E SCWL 6 Episode 4 Tribal Councils

TRIBAL COUNCIL #3

(COREY)-(LARRY)-(NICKOLAS)-(RUDEZ)
XXX
(adam)-(WARREN)-(MARC)

Above the X’s are each of your names. As long as your name is above the X’s, you remain in the game. Once your name is gone, so are you which will be the case for one of you tonight.

You must answer your TC questions in this thread and send in your vote by 9:00pm eastern. Otherwise it is a self-vote.

Since the beginning of the game, whoever received the second highest number of votes received a clue for the final idol. Now that we are in the second phase of the game, Whoever receives the second highest number of votes will receive their next two clues for the final idol. If there is a tie for the second highest number of votes, then all players who tied will receive two clues.

COREY,

1. You guys were down to five by the end of round one thanks to Adam’s decision to quit. So this is really the first opportunity I have had a chance to chat with your tribe. How have the first four rounds been?

I feel like we have worked together pretty well. I know with being down in numbers it doesn’t give us a chance for error. I really do like this tribe its just unfortunate we are low in members.

2. You were the last person standing in the challenge. Was that due to sheer luck or do you think you and the others planned your moves out fairly well?

I think it was planned out pretty well , I also know it has to do with some good luck and bad luck .

3. It has been nearly two weeks since this game started. Has the criteria of how you would someone out from when SuLa was first established changed to the present?

I think since we are down members and we will only have 3 people left after this, I feel we need to keep the tribe strong so that we can stay alive.

4. Matt’s mutiny to Aspu did not really shock anyone. But I am sure Cameron’s did. Why do you think Cameron mutinied?

I believe Cameron mutinied to aspu because he knows he will work with matt Deanna and rob, I wasn’t surprised he left.

LARRY,

1. What has the journey been like for you in this game. You have not been involved in any of the public conflict, but haven’t been too outgoing in threads either. How have you been able to negotiate through the three-tribe format?

2. You publicly stated that you think you are going home. Why is that? Is it because you forgot to submit a square for the challenge? What you think is best for the tribe? Is there anything in particular that makes you feel this way?

3. What assets do you bring to this tribe?

4. What has been your biggest obstacle going through the game?

NICKOLAS,

1. Even with being handicapped by one member, you and Corey nearly won the challenge for SuLa. What was the strategy for the challenge?

Our strategy was to try and work around the middle of the board so if anyone tried to cut through to get to the teleports they would run into us. Sadly for us we still ended up losing. I think we did an amazing job working together as a team though and there isn’t really much more planning that we could have done.

2. It is tough to keep going through Tribal Council without talking about your conflict with Matt and DeAnna. What led to such a rocky relationship with them? Do you think it will change down the road?

I don’t know what happened. I posted a rant that had nothing to do with Matt at all and dude got all over my balls. Then he gets pissy when I retaliated. He can’t keep starting s— with people and not expect a reaction from them. He breaks down and crys any time s— doesn’t go his way and it is annoying as hell. As for DeAnna that bitch is irrelevant. I do not see it changing down the road. He pissed me off by threatening to call the police on me so f— that asshole.(not literally because thats gross as hell.

3. How does Cameron mutinying away from the tribe change the dynamic within this tribe? What happens if you make it to the merge and Cameron is there?

I think it made our tribe even closer to each other then we were before. We were all brought to this tribe as outcasts from our original tribes. This showed us right away we don’t have the support in this game from the majority. The only way we are going to be able to survive in this game is to survive together. I think they made a mistake voting us to the reject tribe. They picked 3 people who are good at challenges and very strong willed. Good luck to the other tribes for that mistake.

4. Larry thinks he is going home. Is it that obvious to you? Is it going to be a unanimous vote against Larry this round?

Larry and I had already talked about this and I asked him if he minds if we just vote him out. He said he was fine with that so it is pretty obvious to me. I am pretty sure it will be a unanimous vote but first I must ask, if Larry doesn’t vote and we all vote Larry what happens to the idol clues?

RUDEZ,

1. This has been the rockiest start to any SCWL season ever. Why do you think things have been so crazy?

You take a whole lot of strong willed people like Adam and Matt, throw them in with a whole lot of people who’ve never played the game before, and egos start to come out.. Also, insecurities ran high in the beginning of the game because no one knew where they stood due to all the twists

2. The immunity challenge opened up the possibility for tribes to share their moves on the board to reduce your chances from 66/33 of going to TC be brought down to 50/50. But instead you and Nlad ultimately screwed each other over during the challenge, and here you guys sit preparing to be 7-3-3 in the next challenge. Was there ever any talk to ally just for the challenge to bring the numbers closer?

It has crossed my mind.. and Travis had approached me as soon as the mutiny was done, but frankly, you can’t trust anyone in this game, especially not a different tribe.. if they’d have said “this is our plan”, I would’ve believed they were doing the opposite

3. At the end of the first round you guys all received your first tribal clue for the SuLa idol. Any ideas if it has been found or who may have it?

Cameron has the SuLa idol, we don’t need idol paranoia on this tribe, it’s just a disadvantage.

4. Do you think that the fact nobody mutinied from this tribe means that you can trust everyone on the tribe?

I believe it made us stronger as a tribe.. Last night’s challenge didn’t prove anything except for what us outcasts already know: we haven’t been so lucky thus far. I have full confidence in SuLa, and just know that SuLa will make it out on top!
Okay. When you vote you will do so in the following format:

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: There is no strategy in the last challenge. The only reason we are voting someone out is because of sheer luck. But guess what? You are the unlucky one. You have been getting away with immunity for three rounds, but finally it is your time to bite the dust. You’re welcome for the ride.

Okay. Everybody is fair game. Between now and 9:00pm eastern Friday, it is time to vote. SuLa tribe, you’re up.

Abandonment. A common theme for this tribe so far. You were abandoned by your original tribes halfway into the first round, you were abandoned by Adam who quit, you were abandoned by Cameron who mutinied to Aspu, and now you were abandoned by Larry who was inactive and cost you guys immunity this round.

The good news is that the voting decision this Tribal Council was probably the easiest and most obvious vote in all six seasons of this series. Larry was inactive and Larry asked you to vote him out. Decisions in Survivor do not get easier than that.

The game will only get harder as you are all each other has left. Don’t lose that unity heading into the rest of the pre-merge phase.

TRIBAL COUNCIL #4

(ANGEL)-(MOISES)-(TRAVIS)-(WILLIAM)
XXX
(adam)-(WARREN)-(MARC)-(LARRY)

Above the X’s are each of your names. As long as your name is above the X’s, you remain in the game. Once your name is gone, so are you which will be the case for one of you tonight.

You must answer your TC questions in this thread and send in your vote by 5:00pm eastern Saturday. Otherwise it is a self-vote.

Since the beginning of the game, whoever received the second highest number of votes received a clue for the final idol. Now that we are in the second phase of the game, Whoever receives the second highest number of votes will receive their next two clues for the final idol. If there is a tie for the second highest number of votes, then all players who tied will receive two clues.

SuLa came through Tribal Council before you guys. They voted out Larry in one of the least suspenseful votes in SCWL history.
Because there are four of you, I will briefly outline what happens if we have a tie vote:

a) Those who were not voted for will re-vote for one of the two who received votes.

b) If we tie again it is a deadlock. Whoever has the most past votes between the two will be sent home.

c) If that is also a tie we go to a live tiebreaker challenge which has never been used in the series before.

Now let’s get to it.
ANGEL,

1. Last time I saw you guys was a couple rounds ago when Warren went home, and Matt was tormenting you all. Is this tribe truly unified with the four of you?

We’ve been pretty unified the whole time with the exception of Matt. The rest of us have always talked things out with each other and tried our best to work together.

2. If so, then how do you vote this round? What is your criteria when you go to vote?

Its going to be super tough voting this round. I don’t think there is much criteria on how to vote here because the remaining of us have worked pretty closely together. I guess I’ll just be voting by who I’ve talked to most in this game.

3. Any regrets of how you guys treated Matt or not voting him onto the SuLa tribe when you had the chance?

I don’t think I mistreated Matt in any way. He was constantly harassing each and every one of us the entire time he was here. I think the original plan was to vote him out at our first tribal council to get rid of the negativity but, I don’t think anyone would have thought that you could hand someone immunity across tribes so that threw that plan out the window.

4. What will be the strategy for the tribe moving forward?

Just keep trying our best and hope we win.

MOISES,

1. Matt could not help but take constant shots at you since the first trip to Tribal Council. Do you think that will help you or hurt you as we head into the vote?

I found it pretty funny how he always wanted to make comments about me but when i returned the favor he ends up crying to you. I don’t think its hurt me so far but if i make merge i think its going to hurt me.

2. This challenge gave you the opportunity to work with another tribe to reduce the odds of going to TC 66/33 down to 50/50. Was there talk at camp about working with SuLa or Aspu for the challenge?

I dont think nobody even thought about that because we knew that the other tribes would screw us over so there was no point in trying that.

3. There was a clue given to everyone in the tribe a round ago for the tribal immunity idol. Any theories if it has been found or who may have it?

I dont think so but who knows i might be wrong.

4. You are currently the only person on this tribe with an item-the Mutiny Trigger. Have you discussed its potential use with anyone else during the game?

Yea some people have came to me but they didnt know that two people have to stick to a tribe.

TRAVIS,

1. You were on the verge of possibly winning this challenge for the tribe, but instead ran into Nick. Do you think that was entirely bad luck or a bit of poor planning?

The challenge was as much luck as skill – it was nearly impossible to predict where people were actually gonna move and even more so when you added the teleport. It was just chance IMO.

2. At the start of this round we were at 5-5-5 for tribal distribution. At the end of this round we will be 7-3-3. How do you think that will affect everybody’s strategies in the game?

Well I think it’s gonna be important for sula and NLAD to start working together to send Aspu to tribal council or else we are all as good as picked off at this point.

3. When tribes get smaller and smaller, what becomes more beneficial? Strength in challenges or trust?

With a shrinking tribe – trust becomes the most important thing because with challenges were you have such a large amount of the outcome attributed to luck – it’s hard to keep someone jut because they are ‘good at challenges’ – whatever that means. It does make sense to keep someone though because you don’t think they will vote for you.

4. Is it easier to trust somebody else on your tribe when the numbers get smaller?

Idk I think trust has little to do with the numbers of people in the tribe as it has to do with the connections made with the people on the tribe.

WILLIAM,

1. What do you think is the worst mistake the tribe has made so far?

I really don’t think we’ve made any mistakes. That mutiny was hella frustrating, losing Matt, but it was the wise choice for us 4 to stay together on Nlad and fight it out. We’ve just been rolling with the punches it seems.

2. What do you think is the best decision this tribe has made so far?

Best decision was sticking together.

3. Why should the tribe keep you?

It’s really tough going to tribal with four people. There’s not much to work with, you just gotta hope the other 3 aren’t agreeing to vote for you. As for keeping me, I came in 2nd place in the challenge, which I hope would get me some credit. None of us know each other, it’s not quite like real Survivor, it’s all game, who’s gonna be best to go forward with.

4. Is it easier to cast a vote because there are only three people to strategize with. . .or is tougher because you only have three people to strategize with?

Guess I somewhat answered this already. With only 3 other people the strategizing is pretty low down. But when it comes to this working out, with only 4 of us, it doesn’t take much for your strategy do turn against you.

When you vote please do so in the following format:

VOTE: (Logan)
REASON: Truth be told I just did a random draw to see who I would be voting for tonight. By pure chance, you happen to be the one going home. Yeah, I know. Goodbye you blundering fool, and let us never see your face evuh again.

Okay. Everybody is fair game. Between now and 9:00pm eastern Saturday, it is time to vote. Nlad tribe, you’re up.

Was it cause I’m Canadian? Hahaha…I’m deleting all of you as friends btw, it was just for the game. But I’ll be watching the rest of the game. Good luck dudes.

ME: Well, that was a tough vote no doubt. Despite losing three people since the second round, it appears this tribe is unified enough to try and turn things around.

Not much else to say. With only three people you certainly do not want to be back here again. You are in desperate need of a win. I wish you well in the upcoming round of play.

6.4H SCWL 6 Episode 4 Next Time On. . .
– It is a story of tribal warfare as Matt and Cameron continue to lead the Aspu Army on a crusade against Nlad. Will their intense desires for vengeance distract them too much from the game at hand?

– After being abandoned by everyone in this game, Corey, Nickolas, and Rudez find themselves caught between two warring factions. Can they use this to extend their stay at the SuLa Resort?

– With Matt gone, Nlad still finds themselves in an angry and bitter state as they struggle in yet another challenge. Can they pull it together before the deadline?

– And the strangest pre-merge Tribal Council in SCWL history takes place as players publicly come to a consensus on who will go home within minutes, and refuse to answer their assigned questions. How will Logan stop this latest incident of anarchy?

6.4I SCWL 6 Episode 4 Exit “Interviews”

EXIT INTERVIEWS

Larry and William both received their exit interviews. Oddly enough, they are the only two players out of the eleven so far to not complete it this season.

Larry’s exit interview was by far the shortest of any player to receive an exit interview since SCWL 4. That did not help as he never bothered to do it anyway.

William flat out refused to do his interview right away. About two weeks ago I reminded him to complete it before this episode aired, but once again he refused. Instead he used these words to describe his experience in the game.
“I appreciate you for this game Logan. However, it took a couple days after getting started to realize who the..trolls were.

And you can’t play with trolls. They will win everything, I could see that right away I had gotten myself into a game that was over from the very beginning in my opinion. Thanks though, peace forever.”
And that, ladies and gentlemen, concludes the two most boring Tribal Councils in series history.

6.5A SCWL 6 Previously on SCWL. . .

– After three rounds of play, each tribe was even at five members apiece.

– But a mutiny offer changed everything as Matt left Nlad to unite the Sad Pudding trio on Aspu, and Cameron, who lost trust in Rudez while exclusively trusting Sad Pudding, also joined Aspu. Aspu was now at seven, and the other two tribes were at four members apiece.

– The biggest twist of the season was announced as only one tribal immunity would be up for grabs. The other two tribes would each vote one player out of the game, making it the first double elimination round in SCWL history.

– An adaptation of a real Survivor challenge was met with much protest. After four rounds of criticisms, chaos, confusion, and loophole-exploiting gameplay, the host posted a rare response to the events that had transpired thus far.

– Once the dust settled, Larry was nowhere to be found during the immunity challenge, and Travis found Nlad’s hidden immunity idol, effectively putting three idols into circulation.

– Matt then led a strategy for Aspu that would help them win the challenge as Lyndsay was the last player left standing. SuLa and Nlad were left devastated as they EACH had to vote out a player only two days after losing one each to a mutiny.

– Despite Aspu’s victory, DeAnna put a plan into motion that will eliminate Efe at the next Tribal Council.

– SuLa travelled to Tribal Council. Larry, who had posted only three times online all game and never sent in a confessional, made a last second appearance to request his elimination from the game. His wish was granted as a rare 4-0 boring shutout vote that happened for only the fourth time in series history occurred.

– Nlad’s Tribal Council was equally quiet. The Southern Hospitality ended for a B.C. player William who was voted out by Travis, Moises, and Angel who stuck to their Texan ties.

– Can SuLa and Nlad secure a much-needed victory? Thirteen remain. Who will be voted out tonight?

REMEMBER THE OLD SCHOOL PHOENIX WRIGHT AND VIDEO GAME BASED CHALLENGES?

That has been one of the biggest changes this series has experienced. In the beginning, the series was founded as a dedication to my Survivor beliefs and to celebrate my tenth calendar year in the Survivor ORG universe.

GONE OVER THE YEARS TO MAKE THINGS MORE FAIR

But due to the diversity of players as the seasons have progressed, challenges that rely on a very specific taste seemed unfair to certain players who needed a fair shot at immunity.

This round is one of those few times as of late where I get to do a challenge dedicated to my Amazing Race blog (which is currently showcasing the second season of TAR Asia), but also setup the challenge in a way where TAR knowledge has very little to do with your success in the challenge.

EVERYONE DID FAIRLY WELL

I thought people would be too stubborn to think outside of the box and merely do inefficent proofreading. However, they caught on to shortcuts and researching a couple answers rather easily. I was impressed with scores that two of the tribes put up.

TRAVIS WOULD HAVE BEEN WRONG FOR “BAD TO THE BOME”

Ah yes. Not only did Travis pick the wrong Dean Cain film for his question, but also wrote the incorrect spelling. I would have not counted his guess of “Bad to the Bome” even if “Bad to the Bone” was the answer.

For the most part, spelling counts in challenges, folks.

ONLY ASPU GOT THE YELLOW-RED-YELLOW FLAG CORRECTLY, BUT THANKFULLY IT WAS NOT A DECIDING FACTOR

Yeah, the yellow-red-yellow flag was part of a tiebreaker question that required a little bit of TAR knowledge. It was the flag used in the TAR 3 and TAR 10 Vietnam rounds to avoid confusion with the South Vietnam flag. I took the screencap directly from the TAR 3 Vietnam episode.

I am sure that Nlad or SuLa would have been upset if they lost the challenge because of that flag alone.

MOISES NEEDED A TON OF HELP WITH THIS CHALLENGE FROM ANGEL AND TRAVIS, BUT STILL COULDN’T GET IT

Oh god. This challenge was hilarious with Nlad. All three of them accidentally messaged me as if I was one of their tribemates. I believe Moises did this the most as he just could not catch on to any of the shortcuts in the challenge.

Moises looked like he was going to be shut out of points. Angel and Travis were not doing much better.

NLAD WAS ASKING ME QUESTIONS BETWEEN COMMERCIAL BREAKS OF TAR WITH LESS THAN ONE HOUR TO GO BEFORE DEADLINE

But that all changed. Oddly enough, the seventh or eighth episode of TAR 23 was airing that night, and I had to run to my computer every commercial break because Travis and Angel were asking questions. The deadline was 11:59pm eastern, and since I live on the west coast, that meant they had until the end of the episode to complete the challenge.

For whatever reason, they waited until the 24th hour to start figuring it out. I remember sacrificing the odd ten seconds at the start of each segment because of how many questions were being fired. It was a miracle that Nlad even finished this challenge at all in the first place.

SULA AND NLAD STILL HAVE A ROCKY RELATIONSHIP–THEY NEED TO COMMUNICATE TO START BATTLING THE LOCKED 5-PERSON ASPU ALLIANCE

Sad Pudding + Cam + Timothy seem tight. Or is it The Misfits of Rob, DeAnna, Timothy, Lyndsay, and Efe?

Either way, Nlad and SuLa MUST start collaborating if they want any hope of staying alive. Whatever conflicts they have need to be put aside to do what is necessary.

And you know what? I think they will recognize their deficit and finally come to an agreement. Otherwise, they are done.

EFE AND LYNDSAY ARE BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS

Indeed. Sad Pudding is catching onto Efe and Lyndsay becoming friends with players outside of the tribe. That should make things very interesting if Aspu can lock in yet another win next round.

MATT-ROB-DEANNA SET UP FOR HUGE VILLAINOUS DOWNFALL DOWN THE ROAD?

I believe so. The writing is on the wall. Their relationship is not exactly being kept quiet. I think Nlad, SuLa, Lyndsay, and Efe can successfully band together and pull off the major blindside to really shake up this game.

At this point, the merge is a very exciting prospect to really liven up this game.

DO I THINK MATT AND CAM HELPED ASPU?

That is always the concern when a tribe has a numbers advantage, and the people sitting out are super active players who hate not participating.

Knowing it was Timothy, DeAnna, and Rob playing. . .let’s just say I wouldn’t be surprised if Aspu had a bit of a boost in the challenge.

NLAD LOSES BY A DECISIVE MARGIN–ANGEL ONLY ONE WHO PERFORMED

Travis was bogged down as he was just days away from winning Paul Louis’ Survivor game at the time, and directly brought down his participation in these pre-merge challenges of a chaotic game.  Mix in Moises’ pre-occupation with mid-terms, and all of the weight is on Angel’s shoulders.

Angel did the best as he could to ace his three points, but that was not enough as Travis and Moises could not fulfill their end of the bargain.

TRAVIS DID TIEBREAKERS

Although Travis completed the tiebreakers at the last minute possible. It was not like him and Moises were inactive throughout the challenge.

MOISES KNOWS HE IS DONE AND GIVES MUTINY TRIGGER TO TRAVIS

Since he performed the worst of anyone in the whole game during the challenge, Moises volunteered as tribute.

Funny thing is that Moises asked if he could use the Mutiny Trigger. Heh. I imagine he wanted to skip out of town during Tribal Council. When I told him that last ditch ridiculousness would not be allowed, he immediately gave up his Mutiny Trigger to Travis.

Seriously. What is with players giving up rewards this season? Matt gave up The Tiebreaker to Lyndsay, Cameron gave up individual immunity to Matt, and now Moises gives up his Mutiny Trigger to Travis?

Weird, weird, weird game.

Which sets the stage for this round’s really odd Tribal Council.

FIRST THREE-PERSON TC IN THE PRE-MERGE IN A LONG TIME

You have to go back all the way to SCWL 1 when Anton, Elvira, and Nelson made the trek to Tribal Council. Although Elvira and Nelson were very close, Elvira decided to protect Anton as she would need his possible relationships and challenge strength if she stood a chance of winning this game.

Then they lose again and a deadlock vote results in Anton going home due to Nelson’s past vote. Meanwhile Elvira gets to hang onto a hidden immunity idol that ultimately would be of little use.

Funny how much of Nlad’s troubles and Larry’s inactivity reminds me of the final days of the Supa tribe in SCWL 1.

I FEEL BAD FOR WHOEVER GETS VOTED OUT NEXT BUT I THINK NLAD WILL BE OUR SECOND TRIBE TO GO DOWN TO ONE MEMBER

Twelfth place is almost always the worst position to go in this series. You need someone to quit post-merge in order to have a shot at the jury, and it is almost always the last elimination before the merge where your fortunes could change.

Sadly for Angel, he will be gone by default if Nlad loses this crucial challenge. They have really crashed and burned, and they do not seem to be in sync with how the challenges operate. But as a tight two-person unit, are they more dangerous than ever to pull off the upset?

MOISES SHATTERS THE FOURTH WALL AS HE LEAVES

This is really the only memorable thing to happen during this short round. Moises has already volunteered to go. There is only Travis and Angel as the other two members of the tribe. Not much suspense here.

But the funny thing about it all? They have missed out on any references I have made to episodes being posted at the end of this game. Matt and Cam mentioned it publicly multiple times, I personally message players at the end of each round saying “VOTE RECORDED” and “ROUND _ CONFESSIONALS RECORDED”.

Why, players were already complaining that they would not know who the winner would be after the episodes would be posted.

Remember how I said last round that Nlad always seems to be disorganized and tunes out most of the rules or not grasp the structure to this season? Well, look no further for a prime example of that.

At Tribal Council, players are required to answer questions at their tribe’s camp in order for their vote to count. Otherwise it counts as a self-vote.

Right away Moises, Angel, and Travis are laughing at the process as they say “uh, we’re getting rid of Moises. We don’t have to answer these questions”.

I reply “rules are rules. You have to answer these questions if you want your vote to count”.

Again, they protest. “This is ridiculous. Moises is going. Let’s end this round right now and move on”.

I answer “This will make for a really boring episode when the viewers read it when the game is over”.

They -still- did not clue in to what I meant and laugh at me saying “uh, right, there’s a lot of viewers in our private camp who are reading this”.

Eventually, I do not know how, but they actually answered their TC questions. Although they were cracking jokes in their answers, we still managed to respect the process.

Usually only two or three players per season since SCWL 3 are unaware of episodes being uploaded during the process. Mainly because alumni, myself, and the whole “ROUND 5 CONFESSIONALS ARCHIVED” message clues them into this fact.

Why, during round two I posted Michelle and Sergiu’s exit interviews in the main group for all to read!

I considered leaving out the whole part about acknowledging the viewers at TC, but it is impossible for the TC transcript to make sense unless you know about the hilarious conflict beforehand.

Tonight, I have no doubt that Moises, Angel, and Travis will be reading this episode. Again, it was the millionth time I was annoyed this season because things refused to go smoothly, but it is tough not to laugh as they were unaware that 30-40 people would be reading that transcript.

And Moises does in fact go by a 3-0 vote. He has one of the strangest character arcs in SCWL history. Matt drags him into a fight, Moises wants to quit because how ugly the fights are getting, he finally fires back at Matt, keeps getting saved despite being relatively weak in challenges, and voluntarily exits as he mocks the whole structure of the game.

I think Moises’ subplot will be one of the more memorable ones in years to come simply due to how up and down it was over the course of five episodes.

Truth be told, I still do not know what to make of Moises.

QUICKEST ROUND EVER?

It lasted just under 48 hours. Heck, it really was concluded 24 hours and 30 minutes after it began. That is why you see few confessionals, a short blog, and little strategic(al) analysis.

But don’t you worry–we will have a round that nearly breaks SCWL 3’s season premiere or SCWL 2’s episode 11 for the longest episode recorded.

6.5D SCWL 6 Episode 5 Confessionals

CAMERON,

Final 12. No Tribal. Wow. Such amaze.
What’s the record for longest stint without going to Tribal Council?

ME: Ten people in SCWL 1 conquered the opposing tribe. So 11.

Wow.
You mean the very first game of yours was an Ulonging.

Actually no, I’m gonna save my breath so I don’t give you any ideas.
X)
I’m just super excited. I didn’t expect for it to go this well. Just counting my blessings every day, yano. Final 12 is more than I ever allowed myself to dream of.
And you can consider that a confessional haha.

Yeah, but here’s the thing. It works out.
I gave it to Matt, which allowed him to mutiny over here after surviving a vote.
To Aspu, where he totally took a challenge none of the rest of us understood and helped us win it.
Plus, he’s still been a pretty good ally, despite some communication flaws. Had he not moved over here, I’d have stayed on SuLa, in a worse place than I am now.
Not only that, but now Nlad is imploding.
Which is exactly what I wanted. One tribe to implode.
I wanted them to face a world where they didn’t have easy votes. And that world is fulfilled. They keep having to eat themselves up. Is part of it revenge? Yeah. Pretty much. But wiping one tribe off the map is gonna get me further.
Moises acting like an immature twat in the challenge? To quote Timothy, “moises is a f—”

MOISES,

well time to use the tribal munity
lol

ME: Too late lol.

i thought it had to be before tribal
its not tribal yet

ME: You asked me earlier. I said you could use it before or during a challenge is in session.

ok well time for me to go
lol
can i pass it to someone else?

ME: Yep, just keep in mind I will publicly announce who is receiving it.

yea ill giveit to travis
thanks for showing me not to ever play a survivor game again lol

6.5E SCWL 6 Episode 5 Tribal Council

TRIBAL COUNCIL #5

(ANGEL)-(MOISES)-(TRAVIS)
XXX
(adam)-(WARREN)-(MARC)-(LARRY)-(WILLIAM)

Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask Song of Healing

You must answer your questions in this thread, and cast your vote privately by 3:00am eastern Tuesday.

ANGEL,

1. Your third challenge loss in four challenges. Do you think this is a weak tribe when it comes to challenges or just not properly strategizing in challenges?

2. This is the first time in over two years that we have been in this situation. This goes back to season one when Coo beat Supa in seven consecutive immunity challenges. The three-tribe format is sadly less forgiving. How do you strategize when you have to go to Moises saying “yeah, vote Travis” or go to Travis saying “yeah, vote Moises”. Or has someone volunteered to go?

3. You were the only one to ace your questions. Do you think you had it the easiest or did you rally perform better than anyone?

4. How does the tribe progress after this vote?

MOISES,

1. You only scored one out of your three points. Do you think that is criteria enough to send you home?

2. In camp you asked Angel and Travis to vote you out. Is this sincere? Do you really want them to end your journey in this game?

3. You are the only person on this tribe with an item from Opening Day–the Mutiny Trigger. How do intend to use that item?

4. You and Matt have probably had the most conflict of any pair other than Adam vs. Every Freakin Player in the Game. What is it about you two that do not simply mesh?

TRAVIS,

1. Your performance regressed between Angel and Moises. Do you think being in the middle is symbolic of your position heading into the vote this round?

2. Why does this tribe perform worse compared to Aspu and SuLa? Because you have been facing different combinations of people and playing in different challenges over the past few rounds.

3. Do you think William would have performed better in this challenge if you kept him last round?

4. After this round this tribe will be down to two players. Clearly the three-tribe format cannot continue forever. What are the biggest assets that the last two people standing can bring to the table heading down the road?

Okay. When you vote please do so in the following format:

VOTE: (Logan!!!)
REASON: Logan, you are the last person to approach me to keep you in this game. I am sorry to tell you that you have been eliminated from this tribe.

Okay. Angel, Moises, and Travis, the three of you are vulnerable. All of you are fair game. Between now and 3:00am eastern Tuesday, it is time to vote. Nlad tribe, you’re up.

MOISES: I volunteer to go! no need for this lol

ANGEL: Moises already volunteered to go. Can we get to the next part? lol

ANGEL: Moises, gimme your item!!

ME: This is one of the oddest TCs I have ever seen.

Let’s at least go through the process for formality’s sake.

MOISES: um no need for it lol

MOISES: and angel i already gave it to travis sorry bud

ME:  If we just ended the TC here, it would look lame for viewers to see a TC end after ten seconds lol.

***

ANGEL,

1. Your third challenge loss in four challenges. Do you think this is a weak tribe when it comes to challenges or just not properly strategizing in challenges?

I think we all have our different strength and weaknesses. Probably could have strategized more, I suppose.

2. This is the first time in over two years that we have been in this situation. This goes back to season one when Coo beat Supa in seven consecutive immunity challenges. The three-tribe format is sadly less forgiving. How do you strategize when you have to go to Moises saying “yeah, vote Travis” or go to Travis saying “yeah, vote Moises”. Or has someone volunteered to go?

Moises saved us the trouble of having to go through the awkwardness of heading into a TC with only 3 people. Thanks Moises.

3. You were the only one to ace your questions. Do you think you had it the easiest or did you rally perform better than anyone?

When I first opened the doc and saw it was 79 pages I was just going to give up. I tried it out and managed to finish it and still second guessed myself when turning it in. I’m pretty good at challenges. Probably not the best but, I can hold my own.

4. How does the tribe progress after this vote?

Hopefully, we actually win one next time.

MOISES,

1. You only scored one out of your three points. Do you think that is criteria enough to send you home?

I dont really care. lol just vote me out lol

2. In camp you asked Angel and Travis to vote you out. Is this sincere? Do you really want them to end your journey in this game?

yes, this is stupid

3. You are the only person on this tribe with an item from Opening Day–the Mutiny Trigger. How do intend to use that item?

i dont i gave it away

4. You and Matt have probably had the most conflict of any pair other than Adam vs. Every Freakin Player in the Game. What is it about you two that do not simply mesh?

idk he dosent like young people because he wishes he was still young. so bye bitches

MOISES: LOL

ME: Care to share exactly why you are volunteering yourself to go anyway Moises to make it official in the episodes? This is not The Hunger Games where you do not need to volunteer as tribute lol.

MOISES: I saw the hunger games: catching fire and i was inspired to volunteer for a cause, and i didnt want a dear friend like angel and travis to get voted out. So I thank the Hunger Games for this inspirational move. Thank you. LMAO

ME: Note: The Hunger Games is -not- a sponsour of SupaCooWackyLand Survivor.

MOISES: Best speech ever or whaaaaaa???? lol

ANGEL: best.tc.evah

MOISES: Its going to be a shame not having me in the game anymore. lol

ANGEL: It really is. You’re a cool guy.

MOISES: Thank you. Thank you very much. *takes a bow* lol

ME: That was very Jay London of you.

MOISES: Idk who that is but i guess thank you lol

MOISES: GOOD LUCK ANGEL AND TRAVIS KICK SOME ASS!!

TRAVIS: I woke up to horrible news and I am just so angry we are here. I am even more angry that we have to lose someone and I’m just sad that you don’t get a chance to prove Matt wrong.

Don’t feel bad about how you played at all Moises. These challenges are designed for people with severe OCD and a slew of other personality disorders. If this was designed anything like a real survivor game – I am confident we would be running circles around around someone of these other tribes.

Matt will be taken care of – it’s just a matter of time! I promise on my life – I will get him out of this game.

TRAVIS,

1. Your performance regressed between Angel and Moises. Do you think being in the middle is symbolic of your position heading into the vote this round?

no, that’s silly. It just where I placed on this ‘challenge’.

2. Why does this tribe perform worse compared to Aspu and SuLa? Because you have been facing different combinations of people and playing in different challenges over the past few rounds.

I don’t think we perform worse – I just don’t think we have the focus for these incredibly tedious and time consuming challenges. They are just outlandish and comparable to work. They are just too in depth – like angel said – when I open my document and saw it was more than 90 pages – I just wanted to turn off my phone and give up. I’m 29 years old and I don’t have hours upon hours to proof read something just to figured out a code to a random trivia question with no value or merit. I would jut about KILL for a mindjolt challenge or ANY challenge were we could display some skill and that wasn’t focused so much on organizational skill and attention to detail. I would almost say ‘attention to detail’ should be the Tagline for the season, because it’s pretty much the reason anyone and everyone has lost a challenge so far.

3. Do you think William would have performed better in this challenge if you kept him last round?

Maybe – once again though – I have a hard time calling this a performance based challenge…. I felt like I was forced into hours of proof reading… Not fighting for my life in a game…

4. After this round this tribe will be down to two players. Clearly the three-tribe format cannot continue forever. What are the biggest assets that the last two people standing can bring to the table heading down the road?

Our biggest assets are that we’ve had to deal with losing more than the other people in this game. I can’t wait to see Aspu turn on each other it will be better than Christmas. I have never witnessed a tribe of more whinny winners in my life. This game is frustrating to be a part of because it seems like the more you bitch and moan and attack people and bully and threaten – the more likely you are to be in a good position. So maybe I need to change my strategy!!!

TRAVIS: Look lame for viewers? That’s your concern here Logan???? Hahaha I can’t imagine there are many viewers right now in our private tribe forum…

MOISES: I was the reason we lost because I didn’t know we were supposed to send the decoded question to him so I should be voted out

TRIBAL COUNCIL VOTING

Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask Music End

ANGEL,

I vote out Moises because he volunteered.

MOISES,

thanks for showing me not to ever play a survivor game again lol

lol but the reason i volunteered was because i f—ed it up for the team i didnt know i was supposed to send you the decoded question which i had taken the f—en time to do lol

TRAVIS,

I sadly vote I eliminate Moises. I had a final 2 with him and he is giving up his spot in the game in a very mature and sensible way. He is leaps and bounds ahead of people in this game that are nearly twice his age. I enjoyed meeting you and I think you are a really cool person. Good luck.

That’s suppose to say ‘to’ eliminate – not ‘I’

TRIBAL COUNCIL VOTE REVEAL

Pokemon Lavender Town

Okay. If anybody has played a hidden individual immunity idol, now would be the time I would reveal it.
.
.
.
Nope. Okay. Once the votes are read the decision is final and the person voted out of the game will be removed from the group almost immediately.
.
.
.
I’ll read the votes.
.
.
.
.
FIRST VOTE:
.
.
.
(Moises.)
.
.
One vote Moises.
.
.
.
SECOND VOTE:
.
.
.
.
And the third person voted out of the Nlad tribe:
.
.
(Moises)
.
.
Moises, the tribe (and primarily yourself too) has spoken.
.
(XXXXXX)
.
It’s time for you to go.

Congratulations, you are the Final Two. Sadly we are also barely a third of the way into the game. The question is if you can do it again.

Good news with this vote is that you guys seem tight as a tribe more than any other round in the past. That should certainly help you as you enter a do-or-die situation for the Nlad tribe. Should be interesting to see how it all plays out.
