Hello everybody. I’ve been playing a lot of tournaments this week and I’m sure a lot of y’all are too. Some of you might’ve heard of the 3 attack 1 block loop but if you don’t I’ll fill you in. Basically it is when the enemy AI repeatedly does 3 attack 1 block, allowing you to save reserves and not die. I have found out what I think is the best way to trigger this.
Step 1: have your Dino be in 1 shot range.
Step 2: the enemy Dino must be killable in 4 or more hits, this is what I think triggers the 1 block rather than reserve.
Step 3: be cautious and hopefully win the battle.
This strat is very useful, and has helped me a lot in tournaments. It is ESPECIALLY viable when sandbagging. This strat has helped me win most of my sandbagging matches, and I hope it helps you too! For reference, here’s a game I won by triggering this loop.
Please note that though effective, this strat can fail. Sometimes I will almost win and the enemy is like “you know, I’m more of a 3 attack 1 reserve kind of guy” and then I lose.
Best of luck to y’all and happy tournaments!
