I think one of two things is true. Either Barry finally heard us when we told him that his scum teams are too strong and too stacked with roles, or scum are 5 players instead of 4. Maybe an outside chance of the final guy having a recruiter type role to get em up to 5.
I will also say a point in mitch's favor is while i disliked his read lists. I do remember goin back and looking at them and they did evolve organically (from his pov). I also made a fairly strong meta case on banez d2. I agree with the assessment that there are more reasons to read mitch town than banez. I don't think that is arguable
