Philippe: great! Shall I change the sumo server entry message to

Code: Select all

No Taquing, Xoring, Quilling or Vvinning, please.
If you don't know what any of that is, you're a 0b and we don't want you here. Get lost.

I was thinking the exact same thing.
I tried to explain it to others, however much I tried, they really had no idea what I was talking about.

Basically, it turns out that it means attackers crowding the zone to get the points and win the round, for example after an attacker has broken defense and cut the zone in half so to speak, another attacker(s) come in and capture the zone.

When asking the people who scream "bah, gankers", "omg ganked", "ganktastic", etc, they dont have a reason behind their "argument" as to me, they just see it as another way to complain to try and piss people off or hope that people wont do it to them in the future so they win.

How I see things is, its a team game - to win for the team, you need to either kill everyone on the other team or capture the zone. Now to me it seems the easiest and generally fastest way is to capture the zone - so what is the problem in crowding a zone so your team wins?

I just dont get it. Plus, Whats the betting the moaners even "gank" the opponents defense in important matches such as AFL, ladles or clan wars...

:evil:

Rant mode over.
omg if i see anyone "complaing" about this ima smack them. I personally don't "gank" just cuz i hope my teammate dies and i get to 1v1 sumo the defender :P But to complain, o pish shut up

I like to let people into my zone, then drop an egg bomb and run like hell.

Gets 'em every time.

Walling. Any act of closing the access of your own fortress by building a wall around it with your tail.

i thought ganking
was when there
was an easy opportunity
to win
(2 v 1, zone broken down)
and one attacker
decides not
to win. . .

guess its the opposite

For every strategy, there is a counter-strategy. Only strategies that can't be stopped with a counter-strategy should be taken out of gameplay. "Ganks"/"Crowding" and Holes can be easily stopped with sweeps.

Unless you make a square in the zone (wont go all the way outside of the zone protecting it.

I'm pretty sure there is no counter-strategy to your opponent being awesome.
