When you use sneak attacks are you detail oriented or fly by the seat of your pants.

Many rules sets lend themselves to flowcharting. I'm looking you, Jon Tuffley.

Well in football schemes have shifted from blocking a specific guy to hitting the first guy you see.
Sneak attacks are like that. In the Warning order and Operations order phase,you are given specific objectives.
When the action begins you drive toward you objective but vigorously engage any enemy you see.

All rulesets lend themselves to flowcharting.

Having a well-defined, repeatable process (whether all the steps are well-defined or not) and criteria for "better" or "worse" for the results of processes is what separates a game from an activity.
