I have felt for a long time that the strategies I employ at trips seem less effective when playing dubs. Is this because my methods (which are always employed on basic medium to large sized maps with sequential, chained, no cards) are not suitable for dubs, or is that dubs on basic maps is simply too luck-dependent? Personally, I feel that I am doing something wrong when I play dubs and I wonder if any kind soul would be nice enough to give me some pointers..

So it is almost as simple as 1vs1 on simple map. 99% luck, 1% skills. 50% winning is quite normal then
I mean, except playing against total noob in double, there is nothing really difficult, drop and dices will decide the winner.

In my opinion, a more aggressive way of playing is the answer. The early luck of the opposition requires more aggression to overcome in dubs than it does in trips or quads. Dubs is more luck based so of course the meticulous, cautious process that is sometimes so effective in trips and quads at overcoming deficits doesn't always pan out in dubs as well as it should. If dubs is more luck dependent then it makes sense to rely more on luck and throw caution to the wind more often that one would in trips or quads games.
Setting up a play must be done faster also, since there are less players to use in doing so. I've thought about this before and I've always thought that being as successful at dubs as I can takes a bit more aggression, so I think that is the main difference. At least that's how I see it.
