Is roleplaying considered a strategy?

Postby MR60G0LD » Thu Apr 07, 2022 8:50 am

I mostly play casual and enjoy to roleplay as characters for fun (e.g. Satan, Springtrap, TwoFace, etc) however in my casual game I have found that I tend to do better when roleplaying as my actions are less suspicious, at worst there are some people who get annoyed by the roleplay but that's about it so I was wondering is roleplaying considered a strategy by some?

Also on a side note, when roleplaying I do not throw the game or anything, I just stick to the role and chat like it while still befitting my role (e.g. as Satan I once got Transporter and did really well as the transporter, however I still maintained a Satanic demeanor of viewing myself as above the rest and demanding obedience, all while saying who i transported and played the game as normal OR when roleplaying as TwoFace I kept bringing up the theme of coin flipping even having it as a death note since I was Godfather, however that doesn't mean i tried to throw as I had an excuse planned for if they chose me by saying "TwoFace is known for coin flips, why would I make a death note so obvious? they are trying to frame me". So just some fun while still doing the best I can at the game)

Greetings,

I do not view roleplaying as a strategy. It may be a fun thing to do during a game, as long as it does not break the game's rules. You need to be careful about the deathnote thing, though.
You are more than welcome to have fun playing the game, but don't set that above the rules.
Disclaimer: I try to abide by the game's softfilter and use the appropriate replacements, when I am using the forums. Those will be set in brackets. Example: [tarnation]

Why do you not consider it a strategy?

It depends on how you do it I guess.

I think you can get benefit from roleplaying. I don't role-play but I do sometimes take on different demeanors, usually based on my role but sometimes based on how I'm feeling. Like sometimes before the game I decide I'm gonna try a super aggressive playstyle regardless of what I roll and end up accusing either my scumreads if I roll Town or suspicious/dumb townies if I roll scum. Either way unusual playstyles tend to catch people off-guard and make you harder to read. Roleplaying wouldn't be much different since you are acting in a different way from how a typical player would behave as any role.
