Default TRICKY/VARIATION PLAYS EVEN WORTH IT AT MICRO LIMITS?

I find the play at these limits is of such a nature, generally very poor to be frank, that it really doesn't pay to make the occassional moves used to confuse or throw off more competent opponents (raising w/ small pairs and middle suited connectors, limping w/ suited broadways, etc.) I hate the idea of my own play being too predictable but it just seems like these players are unaware of betting patterns etc. and thus would achieve nothing or even be -EV.
Thoughts?

I agree, I rarely change my play or use deceptive plays often in the microlimits.

I think you are correct. Bet and raise for value and not for deception. Try to notice who is playing well, and maybe make a move or two on particular players.

In a word, no.

I'm not sure tricky/variation plays are worth it at 30/60.
