I'm pretty sure anyone who actually PLAYS. by that I mean knows how to win against anyone decent, would admit that freestyle speed takes a BUTTload mor skill than any other game type. I would consider myself wellversed in all game types and I know for a fact that freestyle speed is the hardest to learn and the hardest to master. Anyone can play sequential, Freestyle just takes more thinking on your feet, reaction timing etc. You don't have to go "OH CRAP... he just did that! now what?" and save your butt in sequential. In freestyle ist the standard strat plus some. Not sure how that could be viewed the other way around.
This is getting somewhere but I think you still need to give me more information.
It stands to reason that you can't possibly think as far in advance in a freestyle game as you can in a sequential game. For instance, in a freestyle game you can think x number of moves ahead whereas in a sequential game you can think x+y number of moves ahead. This is my reasoning.
I suppose I'm not necessarily saying that freestyle is easier/more difficult to master, just that they are not the same types of skills. As you say, freestyle is more "thinking on your feet" but I say that sequential is more deliberate. Again to the chess analogy; one style focuses on fluid/rapid gameplay, the other focuses on a more structured gameplay. I am not denying that freestyle is harder to learn, I know this by experience, I'm just denying that it requires more "skill". I am arguing that it may be just as hard, if not harder to become really good at sequential as it is to become really good at freestyle. Just playing both a lot does not make you an expert at both.
