Like really, and that's my biggest weakness as a player, i don't have the focus to get deep into reading someone or making some huge case, and y'all do it so effortlessly it seems, what's with that

I do not know how to effort and they still let me play.

I struggle with this. Especially on weekends when I’m less active and miss a lot of posting. It’s something I didn’t use to but now I do. There is just so much pressure and I get anxious sometimes which makes it worse.

Was hoping for advice as well.
Robbed of a scummy for what had to be the best unvote in mafiascum history.

the whole game is dumb and we don't know why we're good at it and nobody knows what is going on and we're all going to have to accept that

Most important part is pacing yourself. The goal of efforting serves two purposes: As town it's to eliminate maf and get yourself found as town; As maf it's to mislim townies and get yourself found as town.

If you can accomplish those goals without any efforting then great, do that! If you can get away with only efforting at key moments and spending the rest of your time catching up and providing gut reads then do that instead.

Take advantage of natural pauses like nights or lulls during the day to catch up or dive deeper in a pressure free environment.
Prioritise staying caught up over making deep cases, it's a lot easier to make big cases when you're not missing half a games worth of context (exceptions: if you're getting run up then prioritise showing a townie mindset by using what you've read until now to not get limmed first, then catch up later when it'll actually matter. If there's mechanical reasons to lim someone without having to catch up such as tracking someone staying home when they claim to have visited then get ahead of that first then catch up later)
