Tactical problems (“Can I run that server?”; “In which order do i spend my clicks?”) often have only one right answer which is relatively easy to find (either you have the money and the breakers or you dont; drawing a card on the last click is always a mistake). If I make a mistake at those, I will often get punished directly. It is clear how to become better at those as I can identify my mistakes and try to do it better next time.
But with strategic problems (“Should i focus on hammering R&D or HQ now?”; “Should i facecheck that ICE?”; “Schould i fast advance now or wait another move until I have the money to rez all my ICE thereafter?”), the right answer isnt obvious. Often, they involve multiple different factors (“risk vs. reward”; “How likely is it that he included that card and drew it?”) which have to be weighted against each other. I find it hard to get better at those as I cant directly see if my decision was right. Even if my play got rewarded, I could just have been lucky.
So how can I try to improve my strategic game?
How can I see if the assessments I made in a game were right?
Any tips are greatly appreciated.
