How to become a Pro!

Fire edit: Sticky for a week.

Ok in this topic i would like to give beginners and intermediates some tips, how to become pro.So here we go

Tips for Beginners (1000-1500):

FFA:

1. Try to get a space in corners,its much easier to protect than space in any other place.

2.Dont overextend your camp to kill another player, its not worth it, because you leave one side too long unprotected.

3.Make sure that you can pass holes without a problem,that opens up many new ways.

4.Make sure that you can camp untill the end without failing, dont risk harder than necessary.

 

Team:

1.Elect someone that camps in your team to avoid suiciding in a big space.

2.Never die in the first 5 second. You can avoid this in any case. A 3v4 destroys not only the round but also the teammoral.

3.Keep your teammoral as high as possible and use Momentum to motivate your teammates.

4.if a round ends up in a camping battle, dont risk harder than needed. If you go straight in your camp, have a short look how much the opponent has and calculate your risk.

 

Tips for Intermediates(1500-1800)

FFA:

1. To become a Pro you need a very good overview.Your microskills (passing small gaps) should be pretty good already.You need to be able to observe the players near to you and Items without dying, train that!

2.Decide if you do Half- or Fullcamp. Do fullcamp, if you have a relativly big camp. The further the round is already proceeded the better is a fullcamp. If you get a small camp at beginning do a halfcamp. And if you see a good escapeway do Halfcamp ofc.

3.The rule of greediness: Be as greedy as POSSIBLE. That means dont risk to loose a big camp for a small area or killing a player.

4. Being pro has much to do with how good you can predict what other players will do. Especially at the Beginning. To get a big space its necessary to look at your neighbour and estimate how dangerous he is for you. Does he have a big camp he probably wont risk it by attacking you, so go to the other side and protect there. 

 

Team:

1.The tips for beginners are still valid!

2.Attackers should always attack the biggest space of opponents. Therefore you need  to recognize quickly where the biggest space of your enemy will be.

3.When oppenent attackers attack your biggest space,look FAST where you could create a big space somewhere else.

4.Its rarely good to do Halfcamp.Do it only if your space is smaller than the one of the opponent

5. The start is important. Try to close gaps as fast as possible, so pass the tail of your mate without leaving a gap right at the start.

6. Again dont risk to hard! when it comes to a camping battle, there is always the possibility that the opponent fails, so its better to do a camp not so risky until the end than risking hard and fail early.

PS: im not a fan of the rule: Never start at the wall! Because along the wall is often a good way to enter space. So if you spawn near a wall anyway, then close there and create space with a teammate but if you spawn pretty much in the middle, then dont go to the wall without closing

So if you follow these tips you should become a pro in no time! 

Have fun

hmmm... a few questions

1. what is the difference between a halfcamp and a fullcamp?
2. "Your microskills (passing small gaps) should be pretty good already" == you should be able to go through a normal gap twice?
3. according to these strategies, we should prioritize camping over attacking?
4. do you prefer an open camp, with a way in/out, or a closed camp?
5. in case of good items, do you recommend picking those up or leave them for later use / your opponents?
6. when playing team games with very bad team members(compared to the other team), what strategy do you recommend?
7. i noticed that i play worse when i play less frequently, would you recommend playing against noobs first before playing more serious matches?
8. what is your favorite potato chip flavor?

btw, nice avatar Biggrin

1. Halfcamp means you go round in circles but leave enough room that you can turn round and come back out again. Fullcamp is leave no space, camp until there is no room left..

2. Good players can go through holes twice without a thin pu, if they need to. But this is harder than it looks. Practicing can make it easier though.

3. Camping is the easiest way to earn points, by far, if you're good at it. But sometimes when you are second place in a game, it could be useful to attack the leader to stop him getting far in front. Must be tactical though. Don't just suicide, then you lose more points.

4. It depends on the position of the remaining players on the map. You need to think fast and predict where people will go. This comes with experience. I prefer closed camps myself because I am good at them, but this is not always necessary.

5. Again it depends on the position of players on the map and fast thinking. If you are in a closed camp you can take a red speed pu and no one will kill you. One of my personal favourites is tricking people with the mirror/switch pu, pretending to want to take it, but then steering away at the last minute. It's all about experimenting.

6. Just encourage them to make space, and try to camp. There isn't much you can do really. Sometimes teams just don't work (even pro teams!).

7. If you are worried about rank, then that could be an option. Another could be to warm up by playing yourself, or with friends non-ranked. I prefer just going balls deep and playing proper games right away Blum 3

8. Slut 'n' Vinegar Biggrin

 

PS  My tip: try to get aware of everything on the map at the same time. It may seem impossible at first, but it can be done and it is a great help. For example, I can do full camps but be aware of where other players are, when they are going to die, or when they are approaching a pu, sometimes multiple players doing this. Experimentation is the key to being good at this game.

1.halfcamp has a way out after doubleturn in the middle

2.you should be able to pass holes with ease

3.camping is a good way to win games, only really really good players can win ffa games with attacking

4.see 1. and read article again

5.Use red items later and take them when opponents dont expect them, take green items whenever you feel like using them

6.if you are the best in your team, then you have only a chance if you be an attacker,because for attacking you need the most skills.tell the second best player in your team to camp and motivate your mates.

7. i personally try to play in the highest rooms possible.even when i started this game i tried that.playing with beginners can increase your moral and selfconfidence, but playing with high players makes you better!

ok now you have enough answers i think. i was writing while trust me has already posted his answers!

Offline

thanks for the answers! Those will be usefull

i really thought that a half/full camp was related to the size of the camp, but it makes more sense now Blum 3

observing other players seems to be the most difficult part, i do see people picking up reverses about half the time, but even seeing them picking it up makes me think/steer reverse-reversed sometimes Blum 3 (i require new brains)

i also found myself playing a lot better after watching a tournament video. Yellow played impressively well in this vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8gb_CTqwXE, or realmadrids play in the latest tournament. By kind of copying those strategies i managed to boost my ffa rank by 300 in a few days Biggrin

Maybe the best advice would be to play some 'high games', to competite with experienced players and after you got some basics, you should play also with/against less popular, 'low players' and try to feel them. I think your teamgame should be improved after FFA because it requires some extended skills, like multi-predicting (to predict intensions of more players just by glimbsing at their movements), feeling which role to play etc. 

And talking about close or full camp, they are quite equal, as they totally depend on the game type and players' concentration - but I prefer the half one duo to assurance of your own holes and unpredictability of others'.

I read those tips, very valuable.

I gone from 1800 FFA to 1885 FFA today. This is my best rank ever Biggrin

 

MY TIP: Learn FFA before Team. If U find yourself having 1600 team and 1200 ffa you are most probably overranked and being carried. Wink

never played ffa that much, never was overanked in team or whatever.

Agree with many points. Nice guide btw.

Actually, if u want to end up good, you have to risk as much as possible, which increases change of failing.. Ofcourse if u dont, the chance of dying is less, unfortunately like the space

My tips, for those who trust themself is also to kill as much as possible. When u have good space, which has 2 holes. And u see someone approahcing from outside,just take him down then return back.
Ofcourse that killed player wont like that,and start calling you noob, cursing, and maybe ur mom gets involved too, and if its glasgow (engineer), then u will get a load of bad words.( i remember he said to an other player that he would die in 2 years ) but ok. As i wrote, it could make some frustration. A real pro player just says gj (my opinion )
Its simple. You have to kill ( others have to die, in order to get points ) so if u get a chance, u take it. There is nothing like: OK, this space is big enough so ill stay...no,just take as much as u can. There is nothing like fairness in ffa.all for themself.

Most of tips are ok, nice work CEM.

But i would do say that players' skill can't grow full when the player is most time camping. 

My tips for FFA: Try new things, attack someone's camp when you don't have enough space at the begin and try being unpredictable ( but not too much ) 

For team: You can't grow as teamplayer when you don't take the lead ( captain / 1st) from time to time.

not quite right salietje, i never was captain but i was good teamplayer. If you want to be pro its same like in any other thing anger, motivation.

Another advice: Practice 1v1. By doing that, you learn how to force your opponent into going in a different location in order for him to survive (which will result with him giving u all the space) This is what I do everytime I play ffa, and it surely works.

Once you master it, you'll have no problem geting atleast 1/9 of the map almost every round (even tho' 3 other ppl spawn at the same spot as u)

Well I agree with previous speakers, I wouldnt agree with Ozkancelik though. In my opinion if you have space worth 7 points in ffa, you should rather protect it than extend it. Why? Reasons are 2. 1st - if you are busy with killing player, you are less focused on a map situation - you may not see red powerup being taken, or you may not be able to close your big space. 2nd - If you let the player live, he ll most likely attack somebody else, who has space big enough to be worth attacking, so your 5-6 point camp can become round-winning one. Also, player who was let alive, may pay you back doing the same, and if you kill him, he ll most likely kill you in reversed situation. Ofc, when you dont have space or the game is a Team one, kill whenever you are able to do so.

Yes andrze, good point, It's all about fast thinking. And ozkan, that is untrue, I said the game, not a player. Seriously, people really need to read what I say before they bs to other people. Really annoying, I understand English isn't your first language, but my god.

 

Practice makes perfect. I was 1600 rank most after almost a year of playing. After that I played with pros and learned everything. Learn from what you see basically. And also, train for fast fingers. Sounds odd.....I know.

Nice idea. However, i disagree with that:

OK, this space is big enough so ill stay...no,just take as much as u can. There is nothing like fairness in ffa.all for themself.

I'm someone who is fully convinced of the exact opposite. If you do have a camp which will save you at least 5 points, probably more (i talk of thin/ no item games) then just do a fullcamp. For  this round, it might give you more points to go out and attack another player, but first, you do take a risk of losing much more points than you could win, second, you don't know how people react. There are guys who just attack and suicide only to harm you after one of those moves of yourself. Having to defend your life every round against this mad guy will cost you time, and time is space.

 

I've got another question: What is your strategy about people, who just suicide against you? Every round in FFA? They don't care about rank, they are not much less skilled, and they are somehow retarded. What would you do?

hers a good tips's for some new beginners on the game "Curve Fever2":

- when you play team match and you accidentaly  go into teammates camp, just take it, cuz thers no real rules on the matter

- if u get in a situastion when u just gotta kill ur teammate to get a sweet kill and get all the points, do it.

- okay im gonna teach u a realy secret tequniche (shhh dont tell): its when u press escpape, and u get 10 free coins. trust me on this guys ive done it twice

-  there's this mysterious clan named "AC" aka "Best Clan", and if u meet them in battle, u will loose, so just give up (it is said in the legends that AC has never lost).

While playing ffa, whats the best tactic when player attack you near the wall, that is, before line is made, if you start too close to wall, another player will attack you. Partially you escape that if you dont start near the wall, but then some players continue to attack you at that position, but it is too late to get better space what you do? 
Of course, when you see that you will be attacked there, esacape it to better place, but if u didnt get that chance, what you do?

Only way to play is to predict what they will do. If a hole appears into your space, you know they will take it. So make them take it, then take the space they just left. It's just luck really, other than this there isn't much you can do. (Or perhaps just play in silence and kill them more times than they kill you, makes it SLIGHTLY more enjoyable for you).

Did u know that a "pro" rarely makes mistakes. mistakes could be made by just pressing on the right-arrow,
0,5 second to long, or going into the wrong hole when 2 holes are 0,5 cm away from eachother. A pro curvefever player
should be able to calculate the time it takes to reach a destination,
not only for him, but for his opponents aswell. It's not just mechanical skills that is needed in order to be a pro.
You need to calculate every single thing you do, and almost every single thing that ur opponents does.
Let's take League of Legends as an example. In the 'pro' scene, u can "throw" away a game,
just by being in the wrong position. You could be in a wrong position in 0,1 to long,
in order for your opponent to catch you offguard. This will result that u might be blown up instantly,
and will lead your team with 4 man left, against 5 of the opponent team, and the game could pretty much be over from there.
So basically, even if you've outplayed your opponent before, u could still loose the game, just by doing
a simple little mistake.
So what I want to say is, when ur calling ppl as pros, when they make mistakes every game
(you may not notice it because it's rarely seen by average players)
just makes me laugh.

Ofcourse a pro can make mistakes, but he shouldn't do it often. Only if the mistake has zero impact in the outcome of the game.

The player that you're calling a pro might be good, with far from average mechanics, but is propably not a pro.
Just saying this because I want people to know what that word means, and not to mix it up with being a good player.

Time for tip from me for begginers and maybe ( ? ) others.

When you camp, and you see a ninja powerup, ( I do it like that I'm typing ) just make sure no one can reach this pu and do half camp... Then when you're " coming out ", pick it then, pass your line after picking and go to other place. It's useful for me to use maximally this powerup. Thanks for reading, if u know what I meant by that tip.
