-Man to Man- When you have a sniper or super effective player, constant harassment can negate their effect, which is otherwise quite an impact for their team.

Today there was a sniper leading the opposing team in kills, stopping flag cappers too easily, he needs no stinking aim bot. It was necessary for me to go infiltrator on him to get to his position and keep taking him out. I made that my consistent goal because someone had to, then he had to change and adapt, but his effectiveness dropped considerably, then the flow of game changed. Double teaming Koby is a good strat at times.

I kind of suck at dueling most of the time (some days I just click and it's on) but I'm pretty good at staying alive in a duel for quite a while. If we need a break, I tend to go in and piss off a bunch of defense (including flag chasers) by skiing by in heavy armor as fast as I can and peeling 2-3 defenders off the base as they proceed to chase me for the next couple minutes. Sure, I get hardly any points for it, but while I'm doing that, someone runs in and caps.

If you're frustrated with CTF give cap & hold a try. It's kind of bare bones but it *really* changes the flow of the game. I grew to love the brute in C&H maps with his fractals and his heavy spinfusor. It's more about dueling since you can cap points *so* easily, so your general dueling skills go up too.

Some days I log on, I only want to give 80% effort, then I get smoked. The game really demands you give it all you got, and then it rewards you. It's just that sometimes constant sweat on my brow isn't always relaxing, so I don't sweat it too much some days. LOL. People are definitely getting better 1 on 1 overtime. I was invisible, made it a lot easier.

Funny you say, I have tried some C&H for a change-up from time to time recently. I also am a fan of the brute almost exclusively in my past play on C&H. I often go for the point where I can refill my 3 fractals and I just defend it as vigorously as I can.
