key: C-A1 =Center Attacker pos 1
key: A2-A3=Attacker pos 2 and pos 3
key: S4-S5=Sweeper pos 4 and pos 5
key: D = Defender pos 6
Heres my Idea

1. A2-A3 will DB and then grind with C-A1

2. S4 and S5 will triple back after they see A2 and A3 pass them

3. C-A1 will Brake After a couple seconds (usally mid) of A2 and A3 passing him

4. Defender should almost be 100% defence, S4 and S5 should be Sweeping at this moment and A2 and A3 should of split at about the same time and Now C-A1 should be enter the Danger zone!!!

5. C-A1 Can Now either do 2 things A)If one of the A2 or A3 Failed to tight grind , you should cover their side first. B) If all looks normal, turn right, Cover , go back Cover left and now keep going right.

6. Congratz Now everyone should have a job =] and should be doing them.


That's my opinion on what Middle should turn and why he/she should turn right.


Also to clear some things.

If the others teams Pos 2-3 gets pass my 2-3 , sweepers will be waiting for them at defence which should be 100% by now.

If the others teams Pos 2-3 gets pass the attackers and trys too enter the line from the triple back, My Attacker can quickly triple back and Cover the triple that the sweeper made.

Now its highly unlikely that they will pass my A-2 and A-3 becayse S-4 and S-5 grinded as long as they could giving more speed to A-2 and A-3. Also C-A1 will still be giving speed too A-2 and A-3 By the time they pass S-4 and S-5 :)

I have no idea what you're talking about. I just meant the crudity of the child-like drawing would be amusing to me, were I a fortress player.

oh. I wasn't pointing any specific fingers at people and telling them they were wrong. I was just making it easier to understand for people who learn better with pictures instead of words.

edit: Oh. and I totally didn't notice that you had already posted that pic

To each his own, I guess. I find that breaking to the right feels more comfortable.

Which way you split as centre is mostly a result of a mind-game between yourself and the opponent centre player. If you vary your moves, there is a higher chance you can actually dump the bugger.

Really depends on who the other Position 1 is :P
