Im visiting this forum with some general questions for advice in playing against more skilled players.
Im a high-diamond for a while now, and I see myself repeatedly losing points in attacks of the aforementioned attacks/ attack combos , and I still dont find a way to avoid them.
So if there’s anyone wiling to share defending tactics in the following situations, I would be happy to listen!
Maybe good to know: I generally play fever+jump, and Im kind of conflict-avoiding, camping or surviving between the lines with occasional well-placed fever. Maybe of course this is a playing strategy that has its limits and will never get me above 4-star diamond, that could be the case as well!
So, these particular situations drive me crazy:
I know well enough how to dodge a speedy zapper by shielding myself. But often when Im in an ’ open space’ shielding myself towards the edge, a speedy zapper will speed towards me, Ill ‘close the door’, but they just manage to zap me when they are plunging into the wall. Netting me -20 or -30 depending on the game stage. I know it is a common and sensible strategy for them to do that, but is there any way to avoid this? Other than just staying away from them and leaving them with half the playing field.
a bit shorter in explanation, but while im totally capable of dodging fevers, mines and missiles, the homing missile seems so often impossible to avoid. Its like a fever with xl area that takes up a long corridor on the screen, leaving you with no escape route. Is there any tactic to avoid this?
ordinary shots when you are making your ‘hole’
Something which drives me nuts is when I turn away to avoid collision with an ordinairy shot (any kind), and my shielding appears to be ineffective because i was just leaving a hole in my line, making free way for the bullet im avoiding. It seems to happen all the time and is very frustrating. Anything to do about, or is this just bad luck?
Thanks for the advice!
