I’ve made this joke about BenConn: “He’s playing Weyland. I don’t care what ID’s on the table, he’s playing Weyland.” (this threw me for a loop when he showed up to a tournament piloting HB FA though)
This sort of forking is something he’s very good at - and actually pretty hard to counter. It’s not impossible though. You have to keep in mind the specifics of the flatline conditions you’re worried about. For example, Logos or Borrowed Satellite (or even a lone Origami) really messes with the 3-pointers Counterstrike plan. It demands the full three, which is easier said than done, especially in the HB version that is often threatening via Punitive - Archived Memories - Punitive.
However, the strength of the same plan is that a triple punitive will kill a runner with a plascrete and four cards in hand, while the Scorch kills can’t.
