**NOTE-- I intentionally avoided naming nationalities to avoid offense, but have noticed a significant trend over several months. Please do not name nationalities.
[Nationality Redacted] appear to all use the same ‘sandbagging’ tactic in war.
For the most part, it appears effective. But I wanted to vent because it is annoying and I cannot figure out why it annoys me.
Tactic 1- NO hits until last 2 hours, then all team members come on and kill kill kill
Tactic 2- pluck off 2-3 weakest ones a couple times, then all team members come on and kill kill kill in the last hour.
Is anyone else noticing this? Helios is not hyper-competitive and is kind of casual for a decently-high alliance, so we allow for life/work and don’t coordinate on that level… but it seems that we are paired up against the [nationality redacted] quite frequently and they all seem to use this tactic. I feel like we win 50% of those wars, whereas we win 70-80% of our other wars.
The reason I point to a particular, unnamed nationality is because (with only 1, maybe two exceptions) they all seem to use this same tactic.
Why do you think sandbagging bothers me?
1a) Does it bother you?
1b) Have you noticed any similar trends?
Is it really the best tactic?
2a) If no, what is “THE” best tactic?
Any other tactical discussions are welcome.
