Game Theory: Among Us, This ELITE 500 IQ Impostor Strategy Will NEVER Lose!

Regarding our Among Us-inspired Theory Wear: We've removed them and are refunding all purchases. My goal with both items was to play off of fun memes from our community, and at no point did I or anyone else working on the shirts consider the possibility that it could cannibalize sales from InnerSloth's own official merch, but I definitely see now how that could be the case. As such, we're scrapping the designs and are reaching out to InnerSloth to see if we can partner on an official basis. (Also, I unfortunately can't remove the promo from the video...but rest assured, none of the items are available any more. If you DO want official Among Us merch, here's the site to check out: store.innersloth.com/ )
So, you think you mastered my 300 IQ Impostor strategy and now you are the best Among Us player ever? WRONG! I've gone bigger and smarter!

My goal with both items was to play off of fun memes from our community, and at no point did I or anyone else working on the shirts consider the possibility that it could cannibalize sales from InnerSloth's own official merch, but I definitely see now how that could be the case. As such, we're scrapping the designs and are reaching out to InnerSloth to see if we can partner on an official basis.

    When I am the imposter I pretend to be surprised behind my screen when someone is eliminated and is or isn’t an imposter. Because this way I forget myself that I am an impostor. So I am less weird ( okay maybe not )

    When you do a task, the bar wont always go up for some reason, so that method will not work. Ive been killed many times as a crewmate because of people taking that advice.

    6:20 btw MatPat not the best advice, since often when part of a task with multiple steps is done, the taskbar doesn't go up because there's another component elsewhere on the map. So this leads to false accusations on crewmates who were in fact completing a task.

    A 1000 IQ tip: common tasks are tasks everyome has. One for example, is Swipe card and Fix Wiring in The Skeld. If any Impostor fakes a common task You don’t have yourself, the are a garentee to be an Impostor. One time, no one died and i saw purple faking card swipe when we all had fix wiring, and no one died yet. I called emergency meeting and purple was voted out. One Impostor remains. Just a nice tip to keep in mind.

    6:25 bro the task bar only goes up on the last step. Say for example, fix wiring, you have to do the last, third wiring for the bar to go up. Same thing for download, and empty shutes and empy garbage, and also for divert power.

    The Impostor isn't actually evil the Impostor owns the skeld but the crewmates are trying to steal the ship and they succeeded and brought the ship to HQ and then the Impostor gets revenge and kills the crewmates with one left alerting everyone through comms on MiraHQ And then goes to polus that had the crewmates that they contacted but the Impostor/the owner of the skeld Followed the crewmate to polus.
