I know I've forfeited my jury spot, but I hope Michel would allow me to say a few (ok, a lot of) words. If not, then I will edit out my post and disappear.
First of all, congratulations to both of you for making it this far into the game. Considering that I had a Final Two deal with both of you since Day Two or so, I couldn't be happier with the outcome of this game.
Secondly, I would like to try and make clear the origins of the Facebook alliance. Even before the game officially started, I sent out messages to four other people who I knew were playing: CT, Kris, Corvis, and Jbug. I have worked with the first three in the past, and I knew that Jbug was someone I had something in common with (we're both on Facebook a lot ). Later on, we brought Taffnic in to ensure a majority of six in a game of eleven players. She was also someone we had previously worked with before. This was how the six-way Facebook alliance came to be.
CT. I think you are the most underrated player in the game. The pre-merge success of the Facebook alliance can solely be attributed to the fact that you shared with me information that proved to be vital in deciding a pre-merge boot list, and in creating alternative boots in case anyone disagreed with my suggestions. You took the fall in the process, and while some people would see it as a betrayal of trust, I personally see it as brilliant gameplay.
The failure of the Facebook alliance, on the other hand, I attribute solely to myself. I will not go into any more detail, but yes, I really think this is true. You mentioned to me in the past that I was the glue that held the Facebook alliance together, but the truth is, you were the glue that held me together. I would have quit after Jbug was voted out, if not for the trust that you had shown me throughout the game. For that, I sincerely thank you.
Kris. You told me before that you wanted to win because you felt like you had something to prove, and I think you have just proved yourself to be quite the formidable opponent. I have talked more strategy with you than CT, and I have to say that you executed brilliantly. You have mastered the one thing that I couldn't--separating your emotions from your strategy. Congratulations. You played a superb game.
Michel. Great game, and great hosting. I look forward to reading your story.
