A Guide To Effectively Pinning

Postby B01 on Jun 29 2013, 6:08am

A Guide To Pinning


This guide will cover pinning the different builds, explained here in A Dummies Guide To Builds by iMaster.


Now for new players, you may ask, What is this pinning lark?


- Pinning is Attacking, Scouting, Stealing and Assassinating a player to render them useless. The aim is to make them DTW (Defender Too Weak) and SZ (Spies Zeroed). Players commonly make the mistake that pinning is just attacking a player til DTW, however even if the target is DTW their spies can be an issue.
- Defender Too Weak occurs when the player has less than 20% troops. (And 0 Gold In Some Builds).
- Spy Zeroing is as the name says, is making the player have 0 spies.
- Regeneration Time (Regen Time) is the time when the target regenerates troops and spies. This occurs every 5 minutes.
Further information can be found here: Bellemorte's Fight Mechanics


The Basics


Of course, this game is different from other ATA games, the two bars are separate from each other. This means you must use different actions to ensure the target is DTW and SZ (Pinned).
The basics of pinning are as follows;
1. Attack Target Till DTW Message
[i]If DTW go straight to 3.
2. Assassinate Til DTW Message
3. Scout Target Til "Enemy Spies Lost" is 0.
4. Scout Target Every 30 Seconds
5. Note The Time When The Target Has Spies Again. You have now found the target's Regen Time.

The target is now available for Attacks, Assassinations and Steals every 10 minutes.
The target is now available for Scouts every 5 minutes.



Advanced


Now effectively pinning targets totally depends on your build and their build. Spies are key for pinning.
Please Note: Expect an enemy to be potted up - Use your own pots to counteract.
Please Note: Take into account of your troop count to their troop count. The findings below are purely based upon pure raw stats (an equal troop count, similar BFA, similar Equipment).

Towers, Allies, Spells and Equipment


Towers have static defence - take this into account with your build and targets.
If they have 1m spy defence in towers and you have 1m spy attack then their is chance you will win first few hits however unlikely to win the rest.

Take into account of a players BFA, Spells and Equipment. They are static stats which can effect your effectiveness to winning.
