Yes but as posted above, sometimes a QC or reaction roll is too simplified for a major plot point. No real tension.
I like the Reaction roll mechancinc and ven the QC mechanic for many things.
But if I were playing or running a Social game (Mind Control is another) where I would prefer a more give and take method like TG has.
For social I have several ideas I would suggest in a playtest or private to someone wanting to write it. I don't think I could do it justice writing it myself though.
