Guild Wars State of the Game: team splits

NightfallPvP battles, or Guild battles (in Guild Wars, of course), to be more specific, can be approached in various ways. One tactic is to split the team. This week’s “State of the Game” is all about that, and we’ll take a glimpse of it here.

First off, if you guys intend to split the team, make sure you maintain good communication lines. After all, you need to constantly update each other of what you’re going to do, since you’re not going to be together.

Second, familiarizing yourselves with the map is a big MUST. After all, having a runner is no good if he or she ends up getting lost anyway.

Third, timing is of key importance. Splitting right away may give your opponents an idea of your strategy, and they might opt to go for your bases right away if the whole team’s away (or make a dash for the runner).

Fourth, better know your team’s build. A team with a spiker build will work better if they stay together. According to our source:

Spike teams usually send back a flag runner along with a Monk so as not to sacrifice too much damage. However, this type of split for a team with a typical two-Monk backline may leave the main group overly exposed if the opponent’s offensive squad collapses back on the flag stand.

So there you have it folks. Hopefully, these tips help you out!
