Match Strategies - how do they stack-up against each other?

Postby Zankman » Sun Mar 08, 2015 1:01 am

I've been using Attacking so far, to good success.

However, is there, say, a Rock-Paper-Scissors balance to it?

What would be your general tips for the different strategies?

Here's a thread from a few days ago where I chimed in on this with a few others: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1249

It would probably be a good idea to search the forum for a few key words next time to see if your question has been covered.

Yeah, as an experienced forum user I should've known better. Just quickly scrolled through the threads.

I apologize, my bad!

The search function is a bit crap to be honest. I usually find it faster to manually search through a players posts or thread titles. Don't use the search function all it does is send you crazy and start smacking your desk with your head.

The strategy question is probably the most asked question.

It is a shame we can't give it a good answer :P

Since this still doesn't have a definitive answer, I'm just going to throw my experience in and hope it gives some extra data.

I usually play balanced, and don't notice a whole lot when my opponents change strategies. RNG does make it difficult to notice any changes sometimes.

This past World Cup, I came up in the round of 8 against the Dragonriders. I was 0 for 6 against them between League and friendly matches up to that point. I did a quick browse through their past World Cup games looking for a weakness, when I noticed that they consistently played Defensive. I decided to risk everything on changing my usual Balanced strategy to match his Defensive strategy. I had 3 very capable chasers, and one of the top keepers in the game. I ended up winning that match in a big upset.

However, in the next round, I risked switching to Defensive against he Jumbucks, who stuck with Balanced. I had won against them consistently in League matches, but these were usually close matches won by my seeker. I ended up losing while being out of snitch range. Could be bad strategy, or it could be RNG.

This season, at least while I'm playing Pearl and Simona, I will be sticking with Defensive, hoping to keep the score low enough to give Gilda a chance at winning. I'll report back later in the season, but I don't think my team as a whole is competitive enough for this to make a difference.
