It is the nature of things. I personally could not give a rats ass if both servers where in the closed right now making out and making plans. All that means is that there are more keeps for me to take and skulls for my pile.
JQ, GG this week! Our place, 830, well bring the ball gag but could you pick up another bull whip? Ours broke on our last strategy session!
One of the biggest whiplash changes you are going to have to get used to, is the use of strategy in our tier. If you decision on which enemy to hit is easy, and your doing it the same each time, your going to get rocked. Each situation is diffrent, and second place has you reeling in more ways than one. Let me give you an example.
YOUR HEAD - We are in second place, SoS is in first place, we need to take points away from SoS so we can catch up. SoS is our target!
OUR HEAD - BG is our chief rival, we need to obliterate them off the map on every front, shoving their PPT down as far as possible
3RD PLACE HEAD - EVERYONE is our enemy, anyone we take points from gives us a distinct PPT bump by both depriving the servers ahead of us of points, as well as gaining points for us.
Your problem? Thinking that our PPT is the only target. You have to look at both fronts, possibly harder at the third place! If OUR points are your only target, your going to look weak to third. If third starts taking pieces out of you, we will join in! Both first and second PPT are desired by third, if you give third no option but to attack first, you can orchestrate a 2v1!
Or you can continue to try and take on everyone like some kind of action hero. Your call.
Your battle tactics are amazing, and on those alone you belong in T1. Your meta strategy leaves something to be desired, and its something i would DEFINITELY be bringing up at your next server meeting.
