I feel like I can say the same thing for every card game I’ve ever played. If you’re smart and you think about it forever, figuring out the best thing to do usually isn’t that hard! Well yeah, but in actual gameplay, there are hundreds of decisions, and making the correct choice every time is next to impossible. I’ve seen you fuck up a whole lot. In fact, I’ve seen literally every player I know commit serious errors and lose games as a result.
I’ve also seen two great players disagree entirely on how to play the same game from the same position, in situations where there is no one correct way to do things, but where it certainly makes a big difference.
I think it’s safe to say a lot of people could stand to improve at Netrunner, but to say that playing it well is “really really easy” is kind of ridiculous.
