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

single minion with a MgS on it...and the single minion only trains protection
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!
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.
lol.. was just about to say that the worst strat is a single mage with ToE.. such a boring one :)

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

4 minions, training only decay.
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.
April 25 2005 12:31 AM EDT
one enchanter training only in AMF.
EEEE all training AS. Would get alot of stalemates so wouldn't even make any money by losing :)

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

Is that a dig at my team? :P
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?

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. :)

" 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...
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. :)
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.

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.
April 26 2005 8:16 AM EDT
and people still aren't very creative to think of a REALLY useless strategy...
When I was away for the weekend, I went from ~300K to 178K!
That was nice to come back to! ;)

Single mage, training only MM, with a base MgS.
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.
April 26 2005 1:33 PM EDT
you *could* still win because you're doing damage with MM
April 26 2005 1:41 PM EDT
the MgS "negates trained spells" ...
April 26 2005 1:44 PM EDT
lol im talking to verifex
seems to me that training nothing and having no weapons would be worst strategy.
April 26 2005 1:51 PM EDT
but is that a strategy? That's just not doing anything...
April 26 2005 1:51 PM EDT
or having 4 minions that train only decay and bloodlust
