Major Nelson was more defensive even than Greg and Aris , but now plays much more aggresive. Watch out for his marshal when you're up.

Yeah, I m still evolving as a player, so I don t think I have found the style that suits me best yet. But it is true that my style becomes progressively more and more attacking. When I was bronze-silver I played ultradefensively. Later as a gold, low platinum player I began to attack with much caution and now as a platinum marshal I have considerably more confidence in my attack. How knows what s next? :huh:

I also have a third account called RRRAAA (low ranked and inactive), in honor of RRRAAA, which is the scream I make when lottoing. With this account I may experiment with a more aggressive style, like constrictor s.;)

I really don't fear anybody. If I end up against somebody ranked much higher than me I know that I will probably lose, but I look at it as a learning opportunity.

 

I struggle the most against shufflers. It isn't the defensive style as much as the shuffling itself because I tend to mix up which piece was which, causing me to make a boneheaded mistake.

I actually feel that I play the best against marshal blitzers, I probably win 80% of those games when playing somebody of equal rank.

I don t like marshal blitzers in general, so it is logical that probably my most feared opponent is constrictor who has perfected this style. Against him I have a record of about 1 victory and 5 defeats.

 

As for the style I most dislike, lottoing -especially when a player almost manages to win merely because of lottoing, despite a great deficit in units- and shuffling/ultradefensive style because matches against such opponents usually take long to end and I often get bored.

Yea i hear you.... shuffling/ultradefensive very boring... i mean i could do the same thing, take and have some advantage and what ? just moving one piece left-right bla bla then game would be 2 hours, where is the fun??
