Am i wrong to assume that, there is a clear winning strategy / best move with how simple the game is
Because i feel like i have come to that conclusion for example in Magic the gathering,
Controlling players will sacrifice their own life total and manipulate the board until they are in the favored position and out value their opponent (as long as they have more than 1HP they can still win).
Aggro players - will try to kill you as fast as possible but is very weak in the long game
Mid range players - will playing slightly bigger things that aggro players but little bit faster than controll players
Thus you counter each other nicely
Aggro beats controll
MidRange beats aggro
Controll beats mid range
Currently i think there are two ways of it playing out -
- Kill your opponent as fast as possible without you dieing
- Survive and out value your opponents so that there is no way of them coming back and you just counter play them on each move they make
Another thing to take account that in MTG you have random factor of drawing good hand or bad cards and you don’t know what you are getting next .This tower defense challenge you know exactly what you are going to get and just need to figure out the perfect strategy like @WillieTheron mentioned (i believe all the top players has the idea already when to attack or place energy towers or general good idea of which positions is better to place certain buildings after playing quite a few games).
Its just the refinement of calculating when its best to attack or defend based on the board state.That’s my reasoning i don’t mind playing 5 games i just don’t think its necessary
