Recently I've been trying some different set ups along with some different opening maneuvers. I'm trying to figure out what types of opening maneuvers work the best.
I'm absolutely certain that this is something that depends heavily on what list you're running, what your opponent is running, and how the board is set up. Still, what general strategies do you use in your opening moves? What have you found to be successful?
Here are some of the questions I've been considering about opening maneuvers. Feel free to share your thoughts on them specifically or share anything else you have to say on the subject of the early game.
- Is it ever effective to split forces to different corners of the board?
- If you're going to split your force, is it better start off with your force separated or to start them together and separate on the first move?
- It generally seems like a bad idea to just rush at your opponent head on. Is there ever a case where this might be a good tactic?
- I really enjoyed this analysis of getting in range for early secondary weapon attacks. Could this be used to try and K-turn behind enemies or drop bombs more effectively?
What are your thoughts and suggestions on setup, opening maneuvers, and early game strategy?
