In extreme anticipation of my XBL kit arriving today, I was wondering what type of strategy you'd use when playing online. Do you: a) - play the sport the way it's intended to be played, or b) - use any possible tactic to win, even if it doesn't fit in with the normal rules of the sport Let me give some examples: Football - Do you frequently take a LB or DB out of position to add to a pass rush in hopes of getting a sack or shutting down the QB? Do you never punt, always going for it on 4th down? Do you repeatedly use the same play? Do you always kick onside kicks? Do you change your roster around, moving players into positions they aren't intended to play? Basketball - Do you change your roster around, moving players into positions they aren't intended to play? (moving a SG into Center, etc.) Do you take 3 point shots on every possesion? Do you try to drive in for a dunk on every possession? Do you use only one player, giving him all the points? I ask this question to get an idea of how some of you like to play. I am certainly less skilled than most of you, but I try to play the game as it's intended. In football, I follow the same "rules of engagement" that an NFL team would follow. In basketball, I spread the ball around and try to take open shots on each possession. I don't have as much fun when I'm playing against someone who has 110 points with one player and 8 points with the rest of the team. It's not too much fun to play against a player who gets the ball back on their onside kicks all the time, even when they are already winning by 2 scores. Does anyone else feel the same way? Or am I just a big baby?
