Strat Talk: Sage Advice (in General)
April 9 2007 2:37 AM EDT
If you could only give one small peice of advice to a new player, what would it be?
Let's assume for the moment that the new player has already been directed to the wiki, has read a great deal of it, and is simply looking for something to guide them through the CB.
Personally, I'd like them to just know that Carnage Blender is both a game and a community, treat it accordingly.
Umm...run for the hills...err I mean Fight Fight Fight!
Seriously though, fighting is everything, and getting a clean start in your first week of NUB can't mean the difference between top 50 and top 20.
It is a game afterall.
Shingle minion, anything else would be nails in a coffin.

don't go tank from day one, wait untill you have money.

Longevity and consistency are key to long term success, whether you define that success as being a respected community member, a good player, or just someone having fun.

4 minion EEEE
One less opponent to worry about ;-)
Seriously? - The thing that made most difference to me was getting a supportership - That is the one thing that makes the game fun, rather than a slog

buy BA when you have a clan and are fighting 100% Challenge bonus opponents around 80k MPR onwards you are sure to earn money ^^
The #1 piece of advice I would give is to become active in the community and ask lots of questions.
"Have fun!" or "Think long term!" depending on the type of player.
Well, except for the "Wow, seekers are expensive" thread. I guess involvement in the community could drive a newbie away if the thread gets nasty enough.

Have fun, get some sleep, get a life; it's only a game! Make sure you're up to date on your spelling and your grammar. If you see a Morgul Hammer in the store buy it. Oh, and listen to that Vestax fella; he's the true voice of wisdom.....

Don't listen to that Vestax fella, listen instead to that Johnnywas guy.

I would tell people to simply play their game, enjoy it and give them an ignore list.
Take everything everyone tells you, memorize it, analyze it, and store it. Then use Decay, a Tulwar, and nothing but EC. When that stops working, try something else.
It's -your- strategy after all.
