Premise: I'm a new player to Poxnora all together, but a friend of mine and I have been playing this game religiously for about a week now - Him playing Forsaken and Me playing Forglar. At first the games were very even against one another, but now it seems like every game I play I lose. My BGs seem fine in Bot Games, but against a player my BG always seems underwhelming. I've been watching games, and trying to make sure I'm getting better skill-wise and thinking more about my moves, and I feel like I'm getting my head around some of FS's mechanics. My BG comp usually consists of 15 Champs/10 Spells 2 Relics/3 Equipment Questions: Is FS just not as good as other factions? I loved them once I played them and I've stuck with them ever since - though I did finish the tutorial for each faction. Is there a general idea of deployment strategy to follow? I usually start something like Melee/Tank, Ranged/DPS, Utility/Support then adjust the order as my enemy deploys. I've yet to buy an Avatar, but I'm saving up now. Though, i feel like if I'm losing badly enough to have to use an Avatar, I have other problems already. How often do Avatars come into importance? Should I be focusing on playing on the the offense, disrupting enemy fonts - or play on the defense, defending my own battlefield? Any other advice would be great, I just feel like every battle I get into is me defending the inevitable end of my shrine.
