I almost feel a little silly asking as I'm sure it'll make sense when I hit on the right example scenario, but why is it that Classic Netrunner used this scoring methodology:
"If you are keeping a running point total, you should play an even number of games, with you and your opponent trading Corporation and Runner roles after each game. The winner of each game gets a flat 10 points; the loser gets 1 point for each agenda point scored."
Aside from the benefit of tracking unconventional wins (e.g. flatlining the Runner), what mathematical benefit does this offer? Why not 7?
I know Android: Netrunner seems to have dropped this, but that is irrespective of my point.
