Because, most of the teams that will be playing will already know what the other teams builds will be, when you come out with something unexpected it can change everything. look at last level 8 and level 9 crystals, where one team (dont remember who) came out with a cheese strategy and 40 seconds later they were 40 points ahead, cheese strats dont always work, and you dont usually try to use them the entire match (you switch to the normal build after the cheese). but when they do, they give you a near instant advantage really early in the match.the fact I haven’t met you and don’t know who you are means that you would have absolutely 0 chance to win, or even get near the end. Your win/loss doesn’t matter below lvl 4-5Why should cheese strats be viable? The winner should be the best team not the team who found the best cheeseI do not want a participation trophy. But that doesn't mean I do not want to participate. yeah, maybe i would be eliminated the first round, or maybe i would go the whole way. how would you possibly know?
actually it makes cheese stratagies more viable... i dont even understand your reasoning on this one, but also you seem rather opinionated on my playing abilities, and youve never even met me, you havent the foggiest clue what my win/loss record is. so bite me.
and while the winner "should" be the best team, you could also argue that the team that successfully used a cheese strat was the best team, due to out thinking the other. their is no fair fight (though 5v5 is the closest your getting in this game). even then you have to play on an even battlefield or you lose, if another team is using a strategy and you know it, and you dont adapt to it or use it yourself, then you lose.
See, for me I always try, and yes I fail A LOT when I try things, but I try new things all the time and fail. Failure is only a bad thing is you lay in it. Yeah, my general mentality is "Pie in the Sky Hopes", that's me, but it beats saying " I'll never win, I'll lose the first round, so why bother". I just don't live my life that way, I shoot for the Sun, and am perfectly fine, if I grab hold of the Moon.
There is no high hopes or small chance, if you cannot even reach lvl 8 then you have no chance to win a tournament.
