I have a sincere question for the community.
Why is the ball method frowned upon / hated / called cheesy? Or they say this tactic is so bad but still use it (hypocritical?). Is there any other way to run this on a non-cheesy way?
When running VoD, it is better to stay together so that mass heals/cures are used to the full potential. Sp effectiveness comes in mind. When I am running with my friends in Epic Last Stand, since none of us are uber or leet, our tactic is stay together and help each other out. Same concept.
Have you watched the movie 300? They stick together, like the ball method. There's this line where the spartan leader said, (I am paraphrasing) one flaw on the group will be the demise of all.
How about the movie The Gladiator of Russel Crowe, when they went to the ball method to survive the ambush of the chariots.
Yes I know they are from the movies, but still it s a feasible concept.
So now, why is the ball method hated?
My opinion is, it is not about the ball method, it is about the Raid mechanics that you just stand there.
