The #1 strategy of Two player Freestyle?

Postby premio53 on Sun Sep 30, 2012 12:00 pm

I think I am starting to learn the most important strategy when playing 1vs1 freestyle but wish to see if most players here agree. What particular strategy trumps all others in your opinion??

I'll give my opinion. "git thar fustest with the mostest." - Nathan Bedford Forrest

The one who gets to start each round FIRST seems to have a HUGE advantage.

Speed and 24hr games are subtly different for freestyle 1 vs 1.

Lol... You might need to say that again... I'm assuming he means casual as he's freemium... It's too bad too... Casual freestyle is lame... Mostly for farming/ranching and people who want a freestyle medal without actually knowing how to play freestyle the way it was meant to be played...

Speed: Have the fastest connection and clicking abilities and a brain that can think quickly
Casual: Spend the most time monitoring your computer so you always get the turns to fall in your advantage. Don't have a social life that doesn't allow you to get on and take your turn right when you can.

That's funny. I was thinking just the opposite. Most premium players seem to have a dozen or more games going at one time and are constantly deadbeating and skipping turns in games considered lost. I just started playing freestyle recently and realized how I would constantly get blown away by someone who managed to end their turn first and start the next round first. As far as farming, I never invite or join any games. I always let whosoever will join. A couple of times I have accidentally hit the wrong button and joined a game.

Amplifying the most important element. You need to be wired to move with haste as the proverbial and literal bombs are flying with seconds to go.

In a freestyle 24hr round Battle Royale game once, I had one shot at winning but had to play as soon as the next round began - before any other player could. I can't remember the specifics, but I guess it was an escalating game and there was an easy target or something. Anyway, I changed the settings on my profile so that I get an email whenever it's my turn, and changed the target email address to my 'real' one - which is linked to my phone. Therefore, my phone would beep when it was my turn, and I could rush to a computer, given that circumstances allowed that.

True story.

Apart from the obvious stuff like "be fast", it's a big help not to set up speed freestyle 1 on 1, but only to join other peoples. Unless someone is obsessively clicking refresh, you'll get 10-15s jump on them, which is usually enough to either claim your bonus, deny them theirs and then fort to defend it. It's a massive advantage, because 1 on 1 is often won on the first round.

Unless you make the game rt, try to avoid playing freestyle casual. As already stated by Jippd, you'll have to spend your entire day monitoring the game, as the opponent can suddenly drop in at any time, make his move, devastate you and log out while you were pooping or something. In speed games it's a little better cuz you know he'll come within 1-5 mins (depending on how long the round is).

Basically, for both casual and speed, you need a fast internet connection. You should try to monitor your opponent's actions and act accordingly. Then after you're sure that your opponent won't do anything weird, end asap so you can start first the next round. So for example, if you see him deploying on region X, which is next to a bonus you're holding, you can quickly drop on region Y, which could either be next to X (risky) or 2 territories away from X, so you can counter him. Then once you've eliminated his stack that he dropped and made sure there are no other stacks that pose a threat to you, end. (Hence the need for a fast internet connection). If he manages to end first, spam the 'b' button (assuming you have clickable maps). On casual games some people do it for hours.
