Tactics

Playing this team

Game Plan Ideal for Warrior's Isle and other narrow maps which don't favour splitting. DP the opposing team in an 8v8, push them into their base and make use of their weakened targets.
8v8

  • Spike frequently to exhaust the opposing monks' energy and score kills.

Flag

  • Hold and get the flags on runner or elementalist. Don't capture too soon to avoid
  • Try to spike their flag, capture and push their team. You might be able to get a backup on your runner.

Split

  • Your warriors can split and defend against splits somewhat effectively, but lack the mobility of an elementalist.
  • If you anticipate splitting opponents run a Lightning Surge instead.
  • Prefer to defend on your runner to keep better spiking opportunities.

Lategame

  • Send the elementalist where he gets linebacked least. Send one warrior to pressure your opponent in your base if necessary.

Playing against this team

8v8 Situations

  • Stay in your shield sets.
  • If you are unable to kill their casters, force a flag push or split game.

Flag

  • Push flags with a ranger so you can defend yourself with stances against the warriors.

Split

  • As this team is primarily based on forceful main team spikes a 5-3 split is likely to counter it.
  • The warriors can split but require adrenaline to selfheal, giving you the opportunity to kill them easily with good dodging.

Lategame

  • The warrior spike doesn't have good pressure options for defending their base, so you may want to play the lategame aggressively.
