being good is overrated tbh, fun is a million times more important no matter if you're either good or bad. sure its nice to win, but is it really that important? just have a good time with friends or meet new people to have fun with and all is good
I honestly think it really depends on the situation and what the map is like, either answer could work. Overall, most games depend on knowing all the tactics, as well as knowing the map well this includes roughly what others could potentially do and therefore trying to prevent this from happening. Decent players could corner a few people from every team and beat them that way, while really advance players can wipe out majority of the game with a few others gaining resources, to defend just in case.
