Guides to attacking and defending
« on: August 05, 2014, 06:22:51 AM »
Video guides to attacking and defending. An overview of the basics for newer players looking for some tips :) Feel free to ask questions here also or really anywhere in the forums or in the game, theres lots of players who are happy to help and the community is quite friendly.

I watched the Attacking video and it's helped a lot! Gotta watch the Defense video when I free myself from guide re-writing :P

Make more guides, oh beautiful bear. Even the most simplistic action can be broken down into very small pieces. I watched these awhile back but they're awesome. :3

If you ever want to make more guides, I suggest making one about mindgames. You know, sneaky things like retracting your characters back to Support etc.

It's true that it's more fun to learn it the hard way, and some of the tutorials encourage thinking out of the box, but perhaps such a guide would benefit those who just pick up IW for fun and thus do not dedicate a lot of time to learn such skills.

While that's true, what makes you think those players will spend the time on the forums or on YouTube to learn about mindgames? Just curious.
Just so you guys know, if you're ever vs WWK, just start putting out random numbers and mathematical symbols, he will surrender.

Telling a person to look for certain queues or possible plays is never a bad thing. Some things should be mentioned so that certain things are in a player's mind. You don't know what you don't know. (hehe) Anyway, sometimes its just nice to hear something you never thought of, especially in a card game that is simultaneous (unlike any other).
While practice makes perfect, its always nice to watch someone play and have them explain what they are doing and why. While Twitch is fun to watch and hangout, newer players can join and learn a lot.

I wasn't trying to say there wasn't a point in doing a guide on it. I just found it funny that people that don't want to take the time to learn about a game would suddenly decide to take the time to learn about a part of the game. :P I'm pretty sure there's some stuff I can still learn about mind-gaming in this game and would love to have a guide for it. :) Then again, I'm also one of those thirsty knowledge seekers. ;)

UI is a little bit out of date but concepts are not. Bump for great justice! :)
