Parson Gotti: But, y'know... he's doing the same to you. And you can't be strong everywhere. So you fall back where he's stronger, and sometimes you do lose. But you roll with it.
Yes, you plan. Okay?
But the enemy won't follow your plan.
So the trick is to be fluid, hit him on the fly, define his choices... watch for opportunity, like when he boops up.
You have to know more than he does about what's going on.
