Are you constantly dieing because you’re bad? Well then you came to the right place.
In this tutorial I will teach you how to pvp in swordbattle.io
Section 1: Low levels
In the low levels, I mainly try to level, kill some bots, but not really pvp. I personally don’t think fighting in the low levels is very effective, as pvp encounters only net you a small amount of coins from players your size, and killing bigger players is practically impossible if they know how to defend. However, you can find people with low health and [Throw] them to death. If another (higher-leveled) player has a lower skill level than you, you can also go for them.
Section 2: Evolutions (Tank+Warrior)
Tank: Tank gives you an advantage of size over berserker, making it superior. You have great defence, and can easily defend against knight and vampire. Make sure to watch out for teams. Try to level quickly, as you can still be very easily killed by knights at level 25-27.
Ability - see cornering
Warrior: Ah the best evolution by far. Its ability makes it great for cornering.
Section 3: Cornering (Tank+Warrior)
Cornering. One of the main reasons why Warrior is the superior evolution.
Step 1: Find a target. You don’t want the target to be low level, have it be someone that is a threat to you, (or a high amount of coins) as this will make your ability be on cooldown for 80 seconds, making you vulnerable.
Step 2: Get diaganol to them and a corner.
Step 3: Go towards them and force them to go into the corner. Be careful with speed evolutions, (Vampire, Knight, and Berserker), as they can use their ability to escape.
Step 4: You may notice signs of struggle. Mainly the activating of abilities. If you are fighting a tank or rook, just [Throw], and back away, then continue. If you are fighting any other evolution, try your best to keep them from getting away. If you are fighting a Warrior, try to force them into using their ability, and then go right back to them, and corner them again. This will ensure they can’t use their ability.
Random tip: If you see on the minimap that a warrior/tank is using their ability, go for them! They will have their ability on cooldown
Step 5: Once they are sufficiently close to the corner, (you can still hit them even if you hit them once) merely activate your ability and kill them, they won’t be able to escape.
Section 4: Feinting
Feinting. The most important part of high level pvp. All you have to do to feint is stutter your movements. When you are approaching an enemy and are about to get in range of them, just go backwards for a half second and then go forward. This will make them attack but not actually hit you. You can then hit them without fear of them hitting you first, because their hit is on cooldown.
Section 5: Settings
I recommend using mouse + keys, as it is easier than constantly moving your mouse. You also move in other directions when activating abilities, chatting, etc.
Random Tip: Make sure to always be [Throw]ing whenever your cooldown is off! The extra damage is crucial.
Keep in mind, I’m just a lowly 5m player, I’m sure Acol would have much better tips than me, but this is what I’ve learned in my swordbattle journey. If you have any tips for me, make sure to reply to this post and tell me.
