Play fast, aggressive, and push constant pressure.
Look to pick off key enemies.
Hesitation is your enemy! Commit to the play calls.
Don’t play into the enemy's defense; position yourself favorably.
Learn to capitalize when the opportunity presents itself. (Look at that kill feed!)
Regroup after every fight!
Mobility and multiple angles of attack will give you an advantage.
Play conservatively! Your life is very precious on defense.
Seek your allies, protect them and let them protect you.
Know when to back down.
Contest the objective when appropriate.
Revolve around the point, it is the only thing that matters.
- Use your ultimates reactively!
