Yeah, my switch around was more to amuse myself. Dunno why everyone gets on Lostfap's wagons. I still say getting RKO's innocence/scuminess out the way is a good move for day one.
Also laughing at people lynching me. It's better for the town if I don't have to claim day one.
If you have a power role you could probably be protected, while just saying you have a power role makes you either a target for the mafia or part of the mafia. So it might benefit you more to just claim.
