Actions to take if thing doesn't exist and then create thing, mess up order

I want to take actions before creating a thing, and then create the thing, but i can’t because “create thing” happens regardless of the workflow rules.

Example flow:
1.Ask user for their PlayerID
2.Trigger custom action “Do things before creating” only when search for “player” where playerID = user entered playerID
3.“Do things before creating” action
4. trigger custom action “Create New player” only when “Do Things Before creating action is complete”
5.“Create New Player”

This is not working as expected as for some reason “create new player” is happening even before step 2 has happened. even though i explicitly said only run “create new player” upon trigger.

It’s driving me crazy, what am i doing wrong here?
