Re: ffa strategies

8 players selecting French, making 5 cav then booming sounds like an incredibly boring game of FFA. I think I'd take the chaotic reality of actually joining a FFA lobby hosted on ESO over this hypothetical optimal play style.

Re: ffa strategies

Yeah this is just a difference in philosophy I guess. In my mind, in FFA you have an obligation to nobody, and that's the point. You shouldn't even have an obligation to yourself to win.

Re: ffa strategies

I think I've been struggling to convey my perspective on this so far, but now I believe I've found the words:

FFA is an inherently unfair game-mode. At any point in time you can get ganged up on and destroyed and there's nothing you can do about it. This is, in the same sense as an all-in rush vs a .....

Re: ffa strategies

Also, to add to @RefluxSemantic 's (very valid!) point, remember that you are committed entirely to your game plan within the first few minutes. You live and die by your deck. The highest level of strategy in FFA (assuming it's not a foregone conclusion that everyone will just boom) might just be de .....

I did like it! And if someone wants to balls to the wall rush me, then I either desperately try to relocate and survive or just quit. It's part and parcel of the experience. It's anarchy.

Re: ffa strategies
