Text Tutorials for Gamemodes

Post by LittleSteps »

Hello, I am currently working on my website and I am trying to have a tab that contains tips and information on how to play certain game modes.

I can find online text based tutorials for Fortress and Loose Dogfight but that is pretty much it.

Is there any tutorials that can be found for High Rubber, Sumo or other game modes?

Example of what I am trying to do:

Years ago I tried to start a conversation about Sumo strategies and it went nowhere. The top players attributed all their wins to intuition (I attributed a lot to luck). There is very little that can be done in Sumo outside of capturing the center of the ring and holding on to it. Some opening moves are better than others. Some mazes are more effective than others. The value of aggressively attacking opponents is debatable.

Would anyone want to write any kind of tutorials? I would be happy to give credit where due. Here is an example of one tutorial page that I have finished. I have yet to proof read the ones I have finished. The sidebar is also messed up, don't have anything to link the things to yet.

Over time I will probably complete the tutorials, but I would like to get them done sooner.
This is the layout I plan to have for the tips / tutorial section:
I will add more, but this is all I could think of for now.

I'm not trying to make this go off-topic (I thought the analogy was clear enough).
It's just that you and your clique are one of the main reasons that the game died; now, you're the one trying to bring new players.

Idk, maybe I'm just drunk again :P

Unfortunately, your reputation prevents me from contributing anything to your site except a warning to all: never visit or download anything from it.

What have I done? I have never tried go give malicious software to anyone and half my reputation has not been my own doing. People like to assume everyone is me quite often actually.

This is quite true.
I had something to post and then realised it was stupid and deleted it all. Mainly because: it doesn't matter who Swag is, was, or will be ...
There is no redemption for the name "Swag". It (and if you continue to use it, ultimately you) will never be trusted.

In Empha style just slag your tail about and get as many kill points as possible before trying to out-camp the remaining couple of people
