Hello forums! Hope everyone's having a good holiday season. : )


I have been into Warzone for a few years now, mostly enjoying the single player maps as well as custom maps against AI. Lately I've started to play multiplayer games against other humans and the level of challenge is both infuriating and exciting. Curious what some tips/advice you veterans might have for a new player?

Don't lose.

Also, analyze your games (specifically ones that you lose) and the games of others. See https://md-ladder.cloudapp.net for a library of 1v1 games and templates.

2 takes 1 but not 2 or 3.
3 takes 1 and 2 but not 3.
4 doesn't take 3 either.

i have played this game from the start when it was called warlight and there were alot of players,,, but now years later on and it's this warzone,, 90% of the players are (Elites) super good at the game and there is hardly anyone else,,,,honestly don't waste your life unless you are a genius,,other than that keep playing single player

The basics of this game are super simple, just search history after game ends and see which moves others made

Play QM and try unlocking the "Strategic 1v1" template. Once you have that you should only play that for a while. Its the best Template to learn for a start as its both strategic and you will unlock it rather early.
Dont play the SE (Small Earth) templates as they often rely on luck. Explaining it now might be a bit confusing so just trust me there.
Once you unlocked the "Strategic 1v1" template there is going to be a setting you may or may not be rather unfamiliar with as its not often used in the SP campaign.. (atleast in the original set of levels)
That being "One army must stand guard". basicly if you have 4 units on a territorie only 3 can actually move.
Then a few tipps that can be applied to almost any template.
Make the maximum amount of picks in pick stage. AKA just click on the green territories until you hit the max. You should pick the territories you favour more first. Your first pick is priorities over all other picks. you know what your first pick is by the "1" on the territorie. likewise 2nd pick is prioritised above everything but 1st pick. and so on.
The max picks can change between templates. the math is
(Number of territories you start with X number of players in the game) so on "SE Wasteland" it would be 2x2 while on the "Strategic 1v1" template its 3x2
And spread your picks out. Thats going to be a better choice than clustering them all in one area. However avoid Bonuses that have a Wasteland in them (a neutral 10 stack)

Lastly dont believe whatever "marcusd23" says. If he truly believes that it shows that he has no idea of what he is talking about and never actually played a strong player. Its like you play SC2 you are a silver player and say to a new player. "bro dont even play. like everyone here is such an elitist"

Yes, anyone who says that "elites" make up 90% of the multiplayer base has no idea what they are talking about. If that was the case, that level of play would no longer be elite.
As for advice, most of the tips I would give have already been giving. The only other thing I'd add is that joining a clan can be helpful, as it provides a community of players who can (hopefully) spend more time with you coaching you and helping you improve. But it's important to choose the right clan for your skill level; if they aren't good enough, you won't learn anything useful from them, if they are too good, you'll lose every game and you'll feel like you don't belong, which doesn't help you learn much. But a clan is only really useful if you're already doing the other things people have mentioned. And of course it's not necessary to become a good player, but it can help some people.

Attack with 3, 6, 8 or 11 armies.
Defend with 3, 5, 6, 8 armies.
Spread your picks.
While attacking and defending, it is better to focus huge portion of your income to one area than to spread it evenly.
Be ready to lose a lot.

Hmm. Elite players apparently can't distinguish between a map and a level then.

Play to enjoy worry not about points unless earning those means more to you that the games
For me that means 1v1 on very strategic maps of around 100 to 120 territories AND with the right template
I can suggest some if you want
Playing the same person/persons a lot helps and gives more meaning to each battle
