The strategy "works"?
Let me spell it out for you: what if Blue used the same strategy as you? What would happen? Or what if Red did?
For blue to incorporate the same strategy, they would have to be under siege in a 2v1 already. Each server plays a different role in this. There is the server that transitions from the '1' into the '2' in the 2v1, there is the server that continues to be the '2' in the 2v1, and there is the server that transitions from the '2' to the '1' in the 2v1.
In the example case, Blue actually benefits from this exchange already because they maintain status as the '2'. At this point, Red could try to incorporate the same strategy as Green.

you have put many assumption on it. first, why you could say blue and red with fight together when they attack green before? so you mean u just defend and let red and blue meet together and fight with each other. however, if red/blue change their tactic, that is slow down their attacking pace, and let the others fight with green insanely, then your assumption later will be all worng.
If Red/Blue stops attacking Green, then the Red/Blue remaining will have to 1v1 in Green's own territory, where Green has the advantage.
For example, Blue has three options at this time (which are the same for Red):
1.) Continue to attack Green
2.) Attack Red when they are in the middle of fighting Green
3.) Withdraw from the battle
This guide is meant to address #1.
In #2, this initiates a 2v1 in Green's favor so it's already a win.
In #3, this initiates a 1v1 in Green's favor so it's already a win (it will reset map balance since Green will push Red out, and Blue has already retreated).
In #1 however, Green is at a basic disadvantage. As you can see above, #2 is the most beneficial to Green. This guide shows you how to manipulate Red/Blue (or both) from option #1 to #2, and therefore turn a bad situation to your advantage.
