Poll: what do you think is the WORST strategy? (in Off-topic)

AdminShade April 24 2005 7:14 PM EDT

This is just for fun, what do you think is the absolute worst strategy.

you may use all combinations of minions (1, 2, 3 or 4)
you may use any tattoo you like (but only 1)
you may use any and every armor there exists (but it would be base) (CoBF and MgS can be seen as +10 for the effect that they otherwise wouldn't have.)

Rest is up to your imagination :)

slurpz April 24 2005 7:21 PM EDT

single minion with a MgS on it...and the single minion only trains protection

Tribute April 24 2005 7:32 PM EDT

single minion with 100%BL with a lot of DX penalty armor without a weapon but with a bow

Gets hit more, and hurt more by physical attacks.

What a loser!

[Redneck RV] Truc April 24 2005 7:32 PM EDT

EEEE (and DCM on all).

QBRanger April 24 2005 7:42 PM EDT


The worst strat is any thats not a single mage (perferably COC) with a TOE.

All others pale in comparison.

Majestik Moose April 24 2005 7:43 PM EDT

lol.. was just about to say that the worst strat is a single mage with ToE.. such a boring one :)

QBRanger April 24 2005 7:46 PM EDT

Its the best strat. Simple. you make tons of money and xp since your beating the top people in the game. Then you can horde items so when you want, you can become a powerful tank. Right now, everyone is losing ground to the SMTOEs.

{CB1}Lukeyman April 24 2005 8:28 PM EDT

No minions at all

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 24 2005 8:37 PM EDT

/me looks for the CB1 "worst strategy contest"...Timberwolf's strat was pretty good ; )

Mags April 24 2005 8:43 PM EDT

*Crosses his fingers hoping Brock doesn't show up in this thread* :D

slurpz April 24 2005 8:49 PM EDT

ahahaha mag

Xenko April 25 2005 12:23 AM EDT

4 minions, training only decay.

Blarg April 25 2005 12:27 AM EDT

1st minion with all AMF, with a full heavy tank set of armor. 2nd minion with all DM, with a full heavy tank set of armor. 3rd minion training nothing but BL, using a dagger. 4th minion training nothing but ST and DX, with a base decay.

Smashure April 25 2005 12:31 AM EDT

one enchanter training only in AMF.

(CB1)logan666 [Jago] April 25 2005 2:22 AM EDT

EEEE all training AS. Would get alot of stalemates so wouldn't even make any money by losing :)

AdminShade April 25 2005 7:59 AM EDT

I have seen some pretty awful ones but, come on you can do better than that.

hints: CoBF negates the use of skills or enchantments. add a MgS to it and you negate the use of DD spells also. Train skills + spells and you have a useless minion ;)

look into things like that instead of simple 'bad' strategies.

Caedmon [Revenge of the Forgers] April 25 2005 9:01 AM EDT

Four minions, all training HP and EC exclusively. :)

Sacredpeanut April 25 2005 9:05 AM EDT

Is that a dig at my team? :P

chernobyl April 25 2005 12:04 PM EDT

Like this! Train MM - sounds great, right? Next get Evasion! Lookin' good. How about some MCM? Great! EC? Why not? No tank will hurt now!
Now, give him a Mage Shield.

Ha, take it the other way - 2 minions, one with AS/CoBF and the other with MM/MgS... would you be ABLE to win?

Relic April 25 2005 12:15 PM EDT

Single Minion Mage with the following armor:
Heaume -6% magic
Mithril Shield -6% magic
Helms Gauntlets -4% magic
Chain Mail Leggings -5% magic
Shadow Cloak -1% magic
Adamantite Cuirass -17% magic
6+6+4+5+1+17=39% decreased magic

Train all exp into Cone of Cold and HP, if you can win any battles that is. :)

Mags April 25 2005 2:02 PM EDT

" Is that a dig at my team? :P "

And if it's a dig at your team, how bad a dig is it at the teams your team beats?

P.S. GentlemanLoser and I would like to kindly ask you to farm mages instead of us poor, noble tanks barely ekeing out a living in this world. ;D You are the ultimate scissors...

Caedmon [Revenge of the Forgers] April 25 2005 2:10 PM EDT

not at all, Peanut. You've got offensive capabilities. I think nothing but HP and EC -- no weapons, no DD, no possible way to win would be amusing. Live off of ties. :)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 26 2005 6:08 AM EDT

Hahahaha! I second Mags.

I just need a couple more thousand strength, then I'll be doing damage to you...

I won't be able to hit you though. *Sigh* I'll have to stop pumping AMF to try and counter you (you drop my score so much when you fight me..), but that just means the Mages get a little closer to dominance!

The worst strat has already been mentioned.

Single minion, no equipment, only trains BL. Not only does the xp do absolutly nothing, you also take more damage to your poor 20 hps in melee!

Oh, and anyone using a CBF would have a good chance of winning some matchs just because of the splash.

Sacredpeanut April 26 2005 8:01 AM EDT

I don't like dropping your score either GL, it makes my rewards worse :(

Unfortunately for me my score drops to about 100k when I'm not fighting which means after going through my fight list a few times everyones score has dropped by about 50k.

AdminShade April 26 2005 8:16 AM EDT

and people still aren't very creative to think of a REALLY useless strategy...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 26 2005 8:17 AM EDT


When I was away for the weekend, I went from ~300K to 178K!

That was nice to come back to! ;)

Maelstrom April 26 2005 11:55 AM EDT

Single mage, training only MM, with a base MgS.

AdminQBVerifex April 26 2005 1:32 PM EDT

Training UC, EC, AS, STR, DX, HP on one minion...

DM, PROT, MM, HP next minion.

AMF, Bloodlust, STR, DX, HP, on third and final minion.

slurpz April 26 2005 1:33 PM EDT

you *could* still win because you're doing damage with MM

Maelstrom April 26 2005 1:41 PM EDT

the MgS "negates trained spells" ...

slurpz April 26 2005 1:44 PM EDT

lol im talking to verifex

Nixon Jibfest April 26 2005 1:49 PM EDT

seems to me that training nothing and having no weapons would be worst strategy.

Maelstrom April 26 2005 1:51 PM EDT

but is that a strategy? That's just not doing anything...

slurpz April 26 2005 1:51 PM EDT

or having 4 minions that train only decay and bloodlust
