Stayed because of the strategic elements.
Didn't really have any expectation at first to be honest. Thought it would just be like Ogame or something where you just press the Attack button and it does some math and give you the results.
It turned out to be much better than I thought. But I only realized that after I got hacked a few times and watched the replays.
It is very unfortunate that the tutorial doesn't really do the strategic elements of the game any justice. The importance of network architecture and the strategy needed to hack a well structured network isn't really well demonstrated. It also hypes up the Worm, which turns out to be pretty lame later on, which is kinda funny. Most of the information about the game also requires Googling.
My fear is that if someone doesn't play long enough at first, they could get entirely the wrong impressions and miss the point of the game altogether.
Agree with you, the tutorial needs to be re-planned.
